A cozy Cottage with a country feel, nestled in a beautiful Historic neighborhood reminiscent of New England in the heart of Hollywood, Ca. Located 6 blocks from Paramount Pictures, 5mins. from the center of Hollywood, a mile away from Larchmont Village (restaurants & shops w/ small town feel & setting), only mins. away from the hip Melrose shopping district.

There's a bus stop just down the street, Thai, Chinese, Columbian and Italian restaurants, grocery stores, convenience store, laundry facility and a Gasoline station within walking distance. A brief drive to Downtown Los Angeles, 4.9 miles away or 9-20 minutes to Universal Studios and 30 minutes to sunny California beaches.

There are also 2 metro stations 1.4 miles/ 5 mins. from our location. The metro will take you directly to the Convention Center downtown, China Town, Hollywood walk-of-fame, Kodak Center, Hollywood and Vine, Universal Studios and other great Los Angeles places.

This is a Quiet and Peaceful neighborhood. It is situated in 2 cul-de sacs (not a through streets) making it safe for kids to walk, play and ride around. The entire property is Gated.

This is a Studio with a Loft. The cottage has a daybed (shown in the photo) with a single bed and a pop up pull out single trundle bed (Sealy posturepedic Matresses) that can be joined together to make a comfortable King sized bed. There's also a Loft with a king sized/ 5 inch thick, super comfortable futon bed.

This place is very special for us. Anybody who is clean, neat and will treat our Guest Cottage respectfully is more than Welcome to stay.

*Please let me know if you need me to set up the King (2 twins joined together) sized bed. I will gladly convert the 2 twins to a King sized (refer to the photo) bed at NO EXTRA Charge but only Upon Request. However, I highly recommend leaving the beds as singles in order for you to have some living room space after hiding the trundle bed under the day bed.

The Sleeping Loft is another option for couples. But is NOT for TALL people, if you are over 5'10 it WON'T have enough head room for you. The futon bed's size is 6'x6'.

*The Trundle Bed that pulls out from under the Day Bed POPS UP.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Rhea was an amazing host, she was very accommodating with my arrival and departure times and even gave me a tour of the neighborhood for good places to eat!

    The cottage is really private with it's own entrance, it was very easy coming and going. The space is super clean and a good size for one or two people. I'd definitely stay here again when I'm back in L.A.!

  • Great experience. Extremely easy to come and go from the guest house at will. Rhea is really nice and accommodating. Felt like summer camp in LA. A++++

    May 2014
  • Wonderful little house in Rhea's backyard , very peaceful and surrounded by plants and tress .
    Rhea is the easiest host , present , friendly and helpful . The place is clean and simple . It is very small but I enjoyed the 10 days there and could have stayed longer .

    March 2014
  • Rhea's Cottage is amazing. A nice & cozy place in the city, Rhea's a great host, she makes the whole experience feel like visiting a friend more than renting a place. I cannot recommend her cottage enough and would definitely stay here again.

    February 2014
  • A really nice experience, staying with Rhea and her charming family this past weekend. Cottage is in a great location, right off of Melrose, near Paramount Studios, close to 101, and a 10 minute drive to the 10. It's small, but private and quite comfortable for two, with room to expand into the back yard for early morning coffee. Rhea and Stuart were friendly and helpful, giving us plenty of space while also touching base with us from time to time.

    The work they've done on their home, the cottage and the tree house is spectacular - a study in loving craftsmanship and attention to detail. It was a privilege to see a little of the life this entrepreneurial couple are building together. Very cool.

    November 2013
  • Rhea's cottage was charming and cozy, and located very centrally. The kitchenette and parking spot made it perfect for our needs. We would come back there anytime!

    October 2013
  • Staying in Rhea's cottage was really nice, it is a very clean and quiet place. So a perfect and relaxing "hide-away" when exploring the touristy Hollywood during the day. A big plus was the perfect parking situation and the fully equipped kitchen that made the stay very convenient.

    September 2013
  • This place was a great alternative to a hotel/motel room. It's like a small studio with 2 separate sleeping areas, a nice little kitchen area and restroom. It's got everything you'll need and more and although Rhea was away on a family trip, she was always an email, text or phone call away. It's obvious they really do love this little cottage of theirs. :-)

    September 2013
  • Hemos pasado unos días estupendos en la cottage de Rhea. Ella y su familia han sido fantásticos, siempre dispuestos a hacernos más agradable la estancia. Tuvieron un problema ajeno a su competencia con un desagüe y supieron solucionarlo con rapidez para que no afectase a nuestras vacaciones.
    El espacio es muy acogedor y los desayunos en el jardín son encantadores. Hemos estados cuatro personas, dos adultos y dos niñas de 11 y 14 años y a pesar de que el espacio es reducido, hemos estado muy bien.

    August 2013
  • The place is small but well planned and clean. Rhea and her family are super friendly. Our son had the best time with her two boys up in the treehouse. We stayed here during our first nights in LA and it is a great place to start out a longer vacation, since it is easy to get around to most places.
