This listing is for one bedroom in my 3 bedroom Cottage. It has a queen mattress, a closet, a dresser, a desk and chair, lots of natural light, and a fan. You will get a key for the lock on your door. A large bathroom is across the hall. This is a 3-bedroom house, with 2 bathrooms that are shared just like a regular home.
The kitchen was custom designed by a Beverly Hills Chef; it is new and big. You are welcome to use the whole kitchen, to prepare some or all of your meals. Feel free to buy your own groceries and store them in the refrigerator. The ingredients for a fresh breakfast are INCLUDED in the price of your stay.
Your pets are welcome here; I charge a flat $5 daily fee per dog. We have Faith, a female German Shepherd who likes to lay around and sleep mostly. She doesn't bark and will probably just look up and wag her tail when she sees you, but won't want to take the trouble to stand up to welcome you. :) She's fits our home, very mellow and peaceful. We also have Chiquita, a 1 year old Chihuahua mix, who is funny, and sweet.
*I have several different rooms to choose from: This listing is for the room with the queen-sized bed. You can see the other rooms in this Bed & Breakfast if you click on my photo and click on my other listings.
Guests have access to the Living room, full gourmet kitchen with all its gadgets, tools, pots and baking pans, and the spacious back yard. Guests can use the new Laundry and Dryer machines, washing soap and extras all provided. Guests are welcome to enjoy the back yard for meals or sunning or relaxing in the evening.
Interaction with Guests
We are your personal travel concierge if you need it! If you read our reviews, you will see that we love giving people all the local hints and secrets that will make the difference in your trip being good or GREAT! We know all the street shortcuts, the traffic traps to avoid, the restaurants where you will see celebrities, where to find the best hamburger in town, the must see's, and the don't-waste-your-time tourist sights. When you are traveling, having someone available to answer your questions with a smile is a luxury. You can call if you get lost, need a great hotel pool to lay out at, or are trying to find a great Mediterranean restaurant. It's important to us that you have a great time here.
If you need us, we are close by in our home office, otherwise, we value your privacy. I work from my home office located in the back, and am always available for any questions you may have. I respect my guest's privacy and want them to have whatever they need to make their visit here the best experience it can be. I do enjoy meeting new people and learning about other cultures, so I am friendly and would love to talk too, if you have the time! I do like to give my guests as much privacy and quiet as I can during their visit, unless they want to chat :))
Stay under the Hollywood Sign, in a private celebrity neighborhood, minutes away from every place you want to see!
You will be staying in the same neighborhood these famous people chose to move to:
Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss)
Sonny & Cher
You will need a car – you CANNOT walk to public transportation here in the hills. There are car services that are run similar to Airbnb that feature local people giving you a ride to your destination, in case you prefer not to rent a car. They are less expensive to use than taxi's. You can look up Lyft, Sidecar, and Uber on the internet. There are taxi's of course, as well.

Helen's house on the top of the mountain, which is super close the hollywood sign. she's very friendly and nice. She's dog is very friendly as well and smart. The mattress is super comfortable and I love the fresh air, especially in the backyard, I would recommend you get a cup of orange juice seat in the back yard when the sunset. I really enjoy the time when I was there, Thank you Helen~
Helen and Gloria were friendly and checked to see if everything was good. Follow directions carefully, the neighborhood is like a maze.
Helen was an awesome, friendly and welcoming host. Her friend Gloria was there to welcome us and get us settled in. Not once did we feel awkward or out of place. They provided everything we needed and the bed was amazing! I looked forward to going to bed every night! The area of the cottage is very nice. Next time we come to Hollywood we'll definitely stay here again.
Helen is great. I love staying there. Feels like my home. Enjoy playing with faith (Dog). Staying again soon.
Helen is a warm and gracious host. Her beautiful cottage is the perfect la getaway. Highly recommend

I have enjoyed becoming a veteran host on Airbnb, having hosted over 500 guests at my home since 2013; many of them returning again and again. I have learned so many new things from my guests that has made my life richer-things about their home town, recipes, new websites-Things I would never have learned otherwise. I feel really blessed that some of the most terrific people in the world have chosen my home to stay in, and to share their wisdom with me.
I am of Indian descent; my parents immigrated to the US from Mumbai, and I have lived in Los Angeles my entire life. I My hobby is collecting "old" technology. It is amazing to me the jump we've made just in my lifetime. I have in my collection a 1950 television, an antique record player, a camera, telegraph machine and telephone. My favorite food is dark chocolate-- I have to have a bite a day! I love being a tourist in my own city; exploring all the special spots that most residents take for granted and never visit. I like learning the history behind a location, finding the best restaurants, and good movies and television! When I visit a new city, it is important to me to stay in a very clean, ultra-comfortable place. I love little luxuries, the best pancakes, the nicest sheets, the most comfortable pillow, the perfect cup of tea. Things that irritate me when I travel are: getting lost, and people that ruin my day with their not friendly attitudes. Little details do matter, and I love making that difference for my guests. I have worked as a tour guide, so I can give you those helpful hints that can make a huge difference when you are traveling.
