About this listing
You will love our beautiful guesthouse with its private gated entrance and handcrafted Yurt. The saltwater pool is right outside your door for beautifully therapeutic swimming. We are in the process of selling the whole property but will be running Air Bnb until then!
Our pool bungalow is a peaceful retreat from the city's hustle and bustle yet only a short walk from the restaurants, bars and food markets of Ventura Blvd.
Woodland Hills is a great part of LA. Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains, we have easy access to Topanga Canyon, Malibu & its beautiful beaches, Santa Monica and the 101 freeway which leads to Downtown LA.
The bungalow has hardwood floors throughout with a queen-sized bed in the main bedroom.
There is a second bed in the living room. During the day it is a daybed/lounge. At night it is perfect as a single bed or easily pulls out to reveal two purpose-made single mattresses which can be used together as a king-size bed or separated as two singles. We also have very comfortable foldout beds available if you would like to accommodate more people in the main living room.
We have a gourmet kitchen equipped with gas stove, large fridge, microwave and a full compliment of plates, glasses and utensils. The bathroom has a tub/shower, hair dryer and cabinet space.
There is a walk-in closet off the lounge room with fresh bathrobes, spare towels & linens, an iron & ironing board plus ample storage space for your luggage.
The bungalow has central Air-Conditioning & Heat. It also has its own water heater so you will never run out of hot water for your showers and baths. You will have the code to the wireless internet which covers the entire property. There is a flat screen HD TV with Time Warner Cable including HBO as well as Roku which has Netflix. The laundry room is on the other side of the pool and has a washer & dryer with washing liquid also supplied.
Outside, our handcrafted Yurt tranquilly sits by the pool and serves as a unique and cozy 2nd or 3rd bedroom. It is fully furnished and will sleep 2 or 3 people very comfortably. It even has its own power sockets, lamps, armchair and electric heater.
The yurt has a wooden floor covered with persian rugs and it's own double bed which easily converts to a daytime sofa. It is a great alternative to the conventional hotel room.
The outdoor dining area has a brand new Weber gas BBQ, table with umbrella and thatch screen for added privacy.
Our garden has a lush lawn, large grapefruit tree and several planter boxes full of fresh herbs and vegetables for you to use at your leisure. It is also a haven for many birds and other cute little critters like squirrels and lizards.
When you arrive please park on the street. We will greet you at our front door then show you to the bungalow via the side gate entrance.
You will get a key for the gate and for the sliding doors to the bungalow.
