The space

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.

The living area features heat and air conditioning, and a 36" flat screen tv with access to Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video and Netflix.

The ultra-clean full bathroom with shower, is stocked with towels, robes, and a hairdryer. It's equipped with a tank-less water heater which provides endless hot water.

At the end of your day, crawl into crisp, 600-thread count sheets atop a comfortable queen size bed. A full size pull out couch with a memory foam mattress is for additional guests and a pack-n-play is available for any small children.

Always thrilled by the convenience of our location, we are 15 minutes or less to USC, Downtown, the Grove, LACMA, La Brea Tar Pits, Beverly Hills, Culver City and Hollywood.

We're 20-25 minutes away from UCLA, Universal Studios, several beach cities (including, Santa Monica, Venice, and Marina Del Rey), and the Getty.

Times are approximate and pending traffic, and we are happy to advise best routes and travel times to your desired destination.

The bus stop is one block away and has a direct line to the Metro. There is ample free street parking directly in front of the main house.

Within walking distance is Starbucks, a library, a grocery store and a bakery.

Our adorable, seemingly fierce Puggle, will greet you at our window with a loud welcome. Have no fear, he stays in the main house with us when we host Airbnb guests. We have also recently added a sweet puppy named Max to the family. If you are a dog lover let us know and we will introduce you.

Sarah's Air BnB is a wonderful, relaxing, peaceful, and friendly environment. We arrived late at night, we were lost, and Sarah directed us until we found her. The darling gatehouse holds all that is needed to become a home away from home! It is a sanctuary after a busy day. We hope to return!

You will absolutely love this property! The listing is 100% accurate, it's just as charming as it looks. Everything we needed for our stay was there, it was very clean and extremely comfortable. The yard is a delightful place to end the day under the lights with a drink. It's central location to many popular tourist spots made it cost effective in regards to transportation. The hosts are very friendly!! We couldn't have asked for a better spot to stay while in LA. We can't wait to come back!

For the value, you can't get any better. This beautiful studio guesthome was a perfect spot to spend our LA vacation. Central location to DTLA, WeHo, Venice, etc. Sarah was very easy to communicate with and was so friendly during the stay, as well as the rest of her wonderful family (including the adorable dogs!). Recommend highly.

This was the best accommodation we could have asked for! It was perfect for our family of 4 and our girls loved being able to play in the backyard. Sarah and family were amazing hosts!

Sarah's place was in a great area, had free parking and was close to the highway so perfect if you have a car (which you really need in LA!) The place was private, comfortable and had great amenities, easy to access and secure. Sarah's communication was great and gave help and advice when needed, would highly recommend!
