About This Listing
INCREDIBLE LOCATION IN THE HEART OF BEVERLY HILLS. We are three walking blocks from trendy Beverly Drive and two more to internationally renowned Rodeo Drive. Enjoy your walk to the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Rodeo Drive, then up and down Rodeo, perhaps go up to Sunset Blvd. and the Beverly Hills Hotel and Will Rogers Memorial Park (great koi ponds). Then stroll over to Beverly Drive (see your old TV shows at the Paley Media Center, formerly TV and Radio Museum) or to swanky Canon Drive, etc. for the great shops/restaurants and a walk through the grounds of the new Montage Hotel where free summer music concerts are held outside on Thursday evenings in the Beverly Canon Gardens. No car needed. Great people watching. Bring your camera. Did I mention the daily Beverly Hills 40 minute narrated trolley tours located at the SE corner of N Rodeo Dr. & Dayton Way?
We are situated on a safe, walking, ubiquitous tree lined street and close to Century City (walkable), UCLA (easy bus access), The Grove, trendy Robertson Blvd. (The Ivy Restaurant from 'Get Shorty'), ultra hip Melrose Avenue, the Beverly Center, the Westside Pavilion, Cedars-Sinai Hospital, and the 405 and 10 freeways. Not far are Venice/Santa Monica/Marina Del Rey/and Malibu beaches (about 25 minutes) and the famed Universal Studios. Walk to Pavilion’s and Ralph’s supermarkets and CVS Pharmacy. Walk to nearby Roxbury Park for picnics, basketball, running track, etc. The Metro bus stops are one-half block to Olympic Blvd. and two and one-half blocks to Wilshire Blvd.
Your nicely furnished private room (11'x16') has a comfortable queen bed with cable TV, internet/Wi-Fi and plenty of closet/drawer space. The full bath room with a tub/shower is shared. You may also use the 2nd bathroom downstairs. 3rd Person: Comfy 15 inch high double air mattress. Please click on the House Rules and Amenities sections above for more important house info. After your reservation is confirmed, scroll to the bottom of the page to read the very helpful House Manual.
Our two-level comfy apt. is one flight up from the street with no elevator. This is a three level building with a washer/dryer in the rear. The three and one half bedrooms are on the third (upstairs) level. You are most welcome to experience the Best of BH and LA in our humble abode. I may be available as your 'guide' and I love to explore the area. I enjoy musicals, museums, nature hikes, biking, and other events.
Coffee/tea are available and fruit and baked goodies are often on the dining table for your enjoyment. We provide free parking permits for convenient street parking. Occasionally there may be a small dog(s) that is usually in the master bedroom that we 'house sit' when our neighbor leaves town.
Our goal is to make your stay as pleasant as possible; just tell us what you need. We are nondiscriminatory. Please check out our other room: THE HEART OF BEVERLY HILLS. We look forward to your visit.

Taxis, Uber, Lyft, limos, etc. are available for hire as well. Tourist vans can be arranged from hotels and LA websites where many have offices/pickups on Hollywood Bl. near the famed TCL Chinese Theatre (formerly Graumann's Chinese Theatre) at 6925 Hollywood Blvd., LA. Bicycle rentals and segways are available nearby and at the beach along with roller skates and surf board rentals plus kayaks and boats in Marina Del Rey.

8. ENJOY YOUR STAY! :)
Great place and Stanley is a great host. The place felt like home and the neighborhood is well served by great restaurants and shopping within walking distance.
Stanley was helpful in giving tips on how to speak English properly. Bernice his wife helped when possible. The location of the house is perfect, the bed is not good (I had a stiff neck in the early days). In any month that there we no time our room was clean, never changed the linens or bath towels (negative). However evaluate as an ok experience. One thing that I found really bad is that the house is cold, and still bind in the cold air.
Actually, Tami & her friend were upgraded to the HEART room as an accommodation so the bed in question was not in the COMFORTABLE room. I am disappointed that she did not like the bed as everyone, including myself, raves how comfortable it is. Under the title 'House Rules' it is clearly stated that we do not clean or change any linens & housekeeping service is not guranteed but is a possible service when available for towel washing, etc.. I also explained that extra towels & linen are available in the linen closets should one need to use same. Perhaps the language barrrier was part of the problem & I shall make it more clear for others in the writeup (but her friend did speak quite good English). The room writeup requests that guests relate to me what they need to make their stay a great experience & I make it a point to tell them that upon arrival. I am sorry the house was cold for you, Tami, but if you had communicated to me what you needed for greater comfort, I would have been pleased to help you. I hope that your stay in LA proves fruitful.
This was my first booking through airbnb and I must say it turned out pretty well. Stanley and Bernice are amazing hosts. Very caring and considerate. Bernice even prepared dinner for us and took me to market.You don't even have to ask as they are always ready to help. Room is spacious, well decorated and clean. Shelves and dining table was always full with goodies. Location was amazing. Sitting in the heart of beverly hills with everything at walking distance. I enjoyed my stay and will definitely like to book again.
Stanley was a great host and all-round great guy. This was my first Airbnb experience and he made it a great one. He even went to extra lengths to help my out by recommending auto insurance for me which was a great help. He was friendly and helpful throughout my stay.
Stanley's place is in a great location, close to all the Beverly Hills shops and restaurants (only a 15 minute walk).
The room was clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable, not much more you can ask for.
This is a great spot for seeing LA!
Stanley was the perfect host when I was in town for a wedding at the Beverly Wilshire. His home is warm, inviting and in the perfect location. He was also extremely accommodating and tentative - going as far as tracking my flight to know exactly when I would be arriving! As well, the room was clean, spacious and exactly as it was advertised. I would stay here again and recommend this rental to anyone visiting the Beverly Hills area. Walking distance to everything. Furthermore, Stanley was so friendly, I would have loved to have more time to spend with him!

About the Host, Stanley
Although I have a CA real estate license, I prefer hiking, biking and roller blading at the beach or just hanging out-can you blame me? I am world travelled, I love the USA, and I am a transplanted New Yorker who has grown roots here in BH. I enjoy theatre, especially musicals: Silence The Musical (awesome spoof of Silence of the Lambs), Xanadu, Jeykyl and Hyde, Avenue Q, etc., museums, dining, nature hikes, snow skiing, reading, food channels, survival reality shows and Hotel Impossible are some of my interests. Consider me down to earth and easy going along with my NY energy! I am considerate and dependable. As your host, I wish to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
