About this listing
Our secluded and shaded cabin is only a mile away from Beverly Hills, 8 from the beach, and 9 from Downtown. Close to the freeway but distant enough away to be peaceful. Enjoy a respite from the congestion when you return after a hard day!
The backyard--the drought has taken its toll and it's a little drier now but hopefully El Nino is coming soon...
Tucked away in a shaded wooded backyard lies your retreat from the bright L.A. sun. Centrally located, steps away from main bus routes, yet located in suburban Beverlywood and shielded from the big city noise, our back house cabin is the perfect place for retiring after a hard day touring or conducting business.
The cabin has its own entrance and comes with wireless access, as well as a large screen monitor you can plug your laptop into for Internet videos or Netflix. The property has plenty of parking.
The cabin comes with a queen bed and a comfortable pull-out couch. We can accommodate additional sleepers with a mattress or sleeping bags.
Our outdoor firepit is open for your use (fires or cooking). There also is a kitchenette area with a burner and a refrigerator for your use. Please feel free to borrow our bicycles for a bike around the city (Beverly Hills is only one mile away and the bike path to the Pacific Ocean is even less than that). Iron and ironing board are also available for your use, along with once-a-week laundry on multiple night stays. We know that it's hard to travel with a lot of the amenities of home and we hope to make those available to you. Let us know what you might need ahead of time and we will try to have it ready.
Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable and worry-free as possible.
Quiet, suburban streets in the midst of the urban jungle. Perfect for day or night walks or just sitting and listening to the sounds of the birds and neighborhood critters.
Multiple bus lines from two transit authorities run up and down Robertson Boulevard, half a block away. The Metro Green Line station is a mile away. We will be happy to introduce you to Lyft and Uber for personal cab service and one free ride through a trusted Lyft driver.
Other Things to Note
We apologize for having to put this in details instead of pricing, but AirBnB has not yet devised a system where we can change the pricing for one-night stays. Our price for one-night stays is $80 as opposed to the usual $70 rate (for stays under a week) to make up for the extra work involved in the quick turn-around on both ends. When you book a one-night stay we will counter with a special price of $80 which you may or may not accept. Thank you for understanding.
Also, sorry parents, but babies are people too! That said, we'd love to have you, and might have some special supplies for you, but please request, e.g., booking for three if there's two parents a kid (or four for two parents and two kids).
Please be refrain from public use of profanity. Please turn off lights and other appliances when you leave for extended periods. Out of respect for your privacy, we will never enter your room to turn off appliances left on during your stay.
We have a pet bunny right now living in the backyard, so please make sure to close the gate when you come and go. :)
Pets will only be allowed under specified circumstances and will never be allowed inside the cabin. If pets are brought into the cabin without permission a minimum $50 cleaning fee will be withheld from the security deposit. However, we do have a large enclosed yard that your pet is free to roam in safely.
About the Host, David
My wife Tara and I are a fun-loving couple who are new to home-ownership. We both have an intimate knowledge of Los Angeles (Tara is a native Angelina, while I have a tourist's eye as a Wisconsin native). We look forward to getting to know you or giving you complete privacy as you prefer. Our goal is to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
I work as a prosecutor for the California Department of Justice while Tara works part-time as a legal consultant. We enjoy hiking the wild areas of Los Angeles, taking in the best beaches, staying up with the latest movies, and just sitting by the fire having a drink.
