A spacious guest house with a lot of natural light with easy access to Santa Monica, Brentwood, and all of West LA!
We are offering our newly built backhouse/studio in a centrally located residential neighborhood with very easy access to Santa Monica beaches, UCLA, and all of West LA. The studio is the entire second story (500 square feet) over a detached 2 car garage and shares the large and professionally landscaped backyard for the main house. There is 1 QUEEN size bed plus a queen size pull out couch that is surprisingly comfortable, a full bath, and a wet-bar with fridge/freezer, microwave, and coffee/tea accommodations.
We can provide pack-n-plays and some toys, if needed, for anyone visiting with small children. The studio has an air conditioner/heater, but the A/C is rarely needed in the summer since there is a wonderful cross breeze and we are close enough to the ocean. Currently the garage is used mostly for storage and laundry so there will be very minimal noise of opening/closing the garage door below you.

Interaction with Guests
We tend to be relatively 'hands off' since you have your own entrance and the guest house is completely separate from the main house. I like to be home to greet you if possible, but otherwise just only to be available for questions without intruding on your holiday.
If you arrive by car, ample parking is available on the street and no permits are needed. Street sweeping comes between 12-3p on Thursdays and Fridays, so be sure to be on the correct side of the street during those times to avoid a ticket.
If you are not traveling with a car, we are walking distance to bus lines with very easy access to beaches, shopping, etc. I have run to the beach from our place (approx 2.5 miles) and we often ride bikes there.
Turn lights off when not in use and upon going out.
Notify of any additional guests.
Feel free to hang out in or play in the shared yard area - a great place for catching some LA sun.

Julie was really easy to get in contact with and arrange for check in/out. The guest house was clean and orderly, and in a perfect spot close to the Santa Monica pier, shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again!
Julie's house is clean, full of plenty equipments and toilet requisites to choose. Bed is comfortable. 10 mins Drive to Santa Monica beach. Nice stay in Julie's house!
This was my second time at Julie's, and this time my husband came. He had never used airbnb and was skeptical, but Julie's place made him a believer. We stayed 5 nights and it was perfect for us. Quiet, clean, convenient to our sons apartment in Santa Monica and always a place to park. We will return again and again. Thanks Julie.
We stayed at the Brentwood Guest House from March 18 through March 21, 2015.
Julie was so friendly and accommodating, you could tell she really wanted our experience to be a good one and it was.
The room is quite, clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with extras we didn’t expect.
The bathroom also had extra personal products which was nice and unexpected.
We will return as it is close to everything we travel to Santa Monica to see and family we visit.
Once again many thanks to Julie for a great stay. We just hope the room will be available the next time we travel.
My husband and I stayed three nights at this location. We were there for a visit with our son and daughter-in-law. It was wonderful! The arrangement of the apartment was cheerful and comfortable. We liked the privacy of the location. The neighborhood was also quiet. We were pleased with the free WiFi. We found street parking easily for our rental car. We could maneuver to other areas of Santa Monica without difficulty. We preferred this to any hotel room. We will check with this hostess and location again whenever we return to Santa Monica.
Julie was very accommodating, and the studio was just as pictured. Clean, bright, and has a convenient entrance above the garage so definitely felt private. We really enjoyed our stay!

We are a family who loves to travel and values the amenities that a home away from home offers over a hotel. Our travels have kept us more local since having kids, but previously we have enjoyed traveling all over Europe, most of the US, Costa Rica, and Thailand. I (Julie) lived in London for about a year and a half which allowed me to explore many parts of Europe.
I am an AirBnB host and have really enjoyed meeting the people who have come from all over the world to stay in our guest house since summer 2011.
Before choosing to stay home full time with my kiddos, I worked in marketing & business development.
*Starting April 1, 2015 my brother's father in law, Andrew, will be living in our front house rather than us. We will have moved to a new home about 10 minutes away. Andrew is a professional in the insurance industry, originally from Oregon until his career brought him to LA.*
