You will love the beauty, comfort and location of my studio guest house. Walk out and take a swim, soak in the hot tub or lounge by the pool. Located in a beautiful private neighborhood in Glendale, close to the studios, Hollywood and downtown LA.
The house comes with everything you will need for a great stay. The kitchen is stocked with a full refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, blender, dishes, utensils and dishwasher. I supply all the sheets and towels and have maid service with laundry service ($50) available on Monday's for people staying for longer stays. Queen bed, flat screen TV, cable and WiFi included.
The guest house is located in the back with it's own separate entrance. Great pool, hot tub, built in BBQ. Please note the pool is not heated from November-April. Special arrangements can be made upon request. The jacuzzi is available year round. Plenty of parking in front of the house.
Interaction with Guests
I will be here to make sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. I have grown up in the LA area and can help with directions, entertainment suggestions and the best of what you can't find in the travel books.
Great private neighborhood, close to the Studios, Hollywood, downtown LA and more. Walk to the grocery store and the Glendale bus stop is a few blocks away. Best to have a car when staying in this area. Glendale and the surrounding area have lots of great restaurants and top shopping areas with the Glendale Galleria and The Americana. 10 minute drive to Universal Studios, 45 minutes to Disneyland, Newport Beach, Venice Beach and more.
Glendale has a good bus system and also has a stop on the Metro & Amtrak train. Take the train to San Diego, Santa Barbara and Northern California. Rental car is necessary in Southern California.
Other Things to Note
I have two small dogs that are very friendly and enjoy the backyard at times. Long term rentals welcome. Weekly cleaning and laundry service available for longer stays.
Absolutely no smoking in the guest house.
I had a wonderful stay here. Shelli was very accommodating and easygoing. The bungalow is super cute and the pool/hot tub makes for a nice relaxing atmosphere. I really didn't want to leave! Thanks Shelli!
Great location in a really nice neighborhood. Very handy for a visit to the Rose Bowl Parade - took only 15-20 minutes to get there. Cottage was outfitted with everything we needed. Easy to find and very accessible street parking.
Shelli was warm and welcoming and helped make our stay a very good one. She even invited us to bring our grand children over to use the hot tub!
The pool house excellent for two. It has all the amenities, including a big screen TV with many cable channels, a compact, but very useable kitchen and a super bath with a shower boasting 5 (!) heads.
The neighborhood is one of Glendale's best and is convenient to freeways. The house is just a two minute drive to the 134 freeway and less than 5 minutes to the 2. If you want to visit Burbank, Pasadena or downtown L.A. this is a terrific location.
We look forward to visiting again. The only drawback is street parking, which there is plenty of, but none available off street. It was not a problem.
The place was great! Beautiful pool and hot tub and great little pool house as the accommodation. Great amount of space to live in. We were extremely comfortable during our stay. Glendale was our absolute favourite part of LA and loved being so close to restaurants and nightlife. Shelli was so nice and so helpful when we needed assistance getting around and we will 100% stay with her again next time we travel to LA
Spent a month at Shelli's guesthouse at the close of '14. I needed a place to work from and unwind during a busy transition in life. The guesthouse worked well for mine and my girlfriend's needs, we like to cook and Shelli has organized the kitchen so we were able to get this done. The bed was comfortable, there was plenty of storage space for my large amount of clothing and things, and the bathroom was sufficient. The jacuzzi is close and works beautifully, it was enjoyed numerous nights. Shelli is the kind of host who becomes your friend, she is always available and pleasant. While there we were invited to and enjoyed a full Thanksgiving meal with family and interesting friends, we had a nice time. Shopping and recreation are all close and easy to get to. I'd like to stay here again if the need arises.
Lovely ... Tranquil .... Immaculate ... Convenient. Amid the hubbub of So Calif this is the perfect place for relaxation located in a quiet, beautiful residential section of Glendale yet a short distance from stores and freeways. The cottage is tastefully done, very clean and comfortable and provides all you need. We especially enjoyed having our morning coffee outside by the pool. Shelli was kind enough to wait up and greet us on our late evening arrival and made us feel welcomed throughout. This is a great find and we would definitely love to stay here again!
Shelli's little piece of paradise is he perfect retreat. Shelli is warm am inviting. Very helpful without being intrusive and her dogs are so sweet. The beautiful and safe neighborhood is close to all the fun in Glendale and short drive to other hot spots in LA.
The guesthouse is a delight. Even better than the pictures. Roomy, well organized, clean and creative, the suite has a fantastic multi-showerheaded roomy shower. The bed and linens are so comfy and the area is very quiet for a good night's sleep. I didn't time to enjoy the pool but it did look inviting. Having a kitchen was a real plus, I could have breakfast on my own before starting the day.
I can't say enough nice things about this charming place and host. I would come back in a heartbeat. It's such a good value compared to local hotels, too.
I live in the Los Angeles area and work in the entertainment business and have two sons. We love to travel and spend our winters skiing and snowboarding in Park City and Salt Lake Resorts. Looking for new adventures. I am also a host on airbnb. I have a great guesthouse with pool & hot tub ready for you to enjoy!
