About this listing
Large, charming and clean.
Centrally located in an historic neighborhood in the heart of LA, we are 10-20 minutes from USC, downtown, Hollywood, The Grove, Santa Monica, and LAX. Perfect for parents and family visiting their kids at USC, a trip to LA for business, or a weekend getaway.
Clean, Comfortable and Convenient to Downtown, our guesthouse is a welcome place for you to hang your hat while in Los Angeles.
We completely renovated our guesthouse so it is fresh and clean for your visit. New paint, counter-tops, linens, everything – we want your stay in this historic LA neighborhood to be as comfortable as possible…even down to the clean, crisp robes hanging for you in the bathroom.
The guesthouse is a separate structure from our 1913 owner-occupied main house, set in a lush backyard behind a gated entrance. Come and go as you please.
Upon arrival you will be given keys, check-out instructions, maps of the area (email hidden) password (free during your stay).
Inside you will find a fully stocked kitchen with a small fridge/freezer, stove-top, microwave, electric tea kettle, coffee maker, and toaster (coffee, tea, and sugar complimentary). Pots, pans, cutlery, and flatware are all included. Cooks ourselves, should you find you need spices or cooking ingredients, let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate. Pull up a bench and enjoy your meals at the counter, or enjoy your coffee outside on a cushioned bench or bistro table.
