The Space

One of the best locations in Hollywood, central to everything, including trains and buses yet still a quiet neighborhood. This is a queen sized bed in the living room, so it is a semi-private situation. Must LOVE dogs! Great if you just need a bed to sleep in at night and will be out of the house all day.

The apartment is clean, quiet and convenient to all that Hollywood has to offer including the trains and buses.

You will be staying on a really comfy queen size mattress in the large living room. This is more of a Semi-Private situation, not a share but not a private room either. I live in the private bedroom with my mini-Dachshund, Delilah, she's about 13 lbs.

This is a great place if you just need a place to lay your head and do not plan on being around the apartment all day as I work out of the house. Just for sleeping, no hanging around all day. Great for actors coming to LA for pilot season auditions, short term students or persons in town on business. The apartment and the neighborhood have a very relaxed atmosphere, many trees and hills. Yet still in walking distance to everything in Hollywood. Hard wood floors, flat screen TV, cable, wireless internet. Full kitchen. Recently renovated unit. Laundry in the building.
Free street parking only.

This is a small cozy apartment, really only designed for myself and ONE GUEST ONLY. If you are a couple traveling too LA for only a day or two, I might consider it if there is a last minute cancellation, however I CAN NOT have a couple staying long term (more than two days).

Towels are provided. $300 security deposit required on all rentals, no exceptions. The cleaning fee is for the maid service that cleans between rentals. Street parking only.

If you have a specific check in time please state this right away as my freelance work schedule is always changing. You must have a way of contacting me via mobile phone or email when you first arrive, there is no buzzer on the outside of the building for me. No international phone calls to my cell phone please, I will not pick up.

Check out is 11am on your last day, because I usually have a cleaning service coming in at noon before the next guest arrives. If you need to check out later they may be an extra fee.

The location is at the base of Runyon Canyon, famous for its hiking trails and panoramic views of Hollywood. Convenient walk to Hollywood Blvd, Sunset Blvd, the Chinese Theater, Dolby Theater, the home of the Oscars, Hollywood Bowl, Jimmy Kimmel show, supermarkets and many restaurants. Easy drive to many Hollywood attractions. Hard wood floors, flat screen TV, cable, wireless internet. Full kitchen. Recently renovated unit. Laundry in the building. .
There is free yoga at Runyon Canyon, about a block away, just check Runyon Canyon Yoga on(website hidden)for the times. It is outdoors in the grass, it can be muddy or uneven ground, so take note. I can leave a yoga mat out for you to use, if you request it. There is also a yoga studio called CorePower about three blocks away at Hollywood and LaBrea, $20 a session. The schedule is posted on there website.

Although there is bus and subway transportation near by, if you are coming from the airport, I would suggest you get a taxi or a shuttle service, such as PrimeTime. If you take public transportation from the airport it will take 2 hours of your life and a lot of frustration.

You will have access to the 3 laundry rooms and pool.

I live in the apartment and sometimes work there too, so there will be daily one-on-one interaction.

It is very clean and beautiful yet very close to the action in Hollywood.

There are buses on Hollywood, LaBrea and Sunset Boulevards and the Metro subway at Hollywood and Highland Center within walking distance. Please Internet search for more information.
The Ralph's supermarket is open 24 hours at Sunset and Fuller. It is a 5 minute walk away down Fuller.

The living room, kitchen, porch and bathroom. Also the building has a pool and courtyard. The bedroom is off limits.

Interaction with Guests

I live and work in the apartment, so I am around often. I give preference to guest that will be out of the house during the day, everyday. You'll be expected to be out of the house between 10am and 7pm ROUGHLY everyday, if I'm home that week working. I am flexible on this, just communicate with me. Please state that in your initial email to me. NO SLEEPING DURING THE DAY.

The Neighborhood

The quietest part of Hollywood yet still walkable to the action. Go hiking at Runyon Canyon a block way or shopping on Hollywood Blvd.

Getting Around

Buses and the metro subway are easy to get to on Hollywood Blvd.

Other Things to Note

No check in (even for luggage) before the check in time. I usually have guest leaving and need to do cleaning and this is real distraction. Also, you must have a way to call me for when you are arriving, there is no doorbell. Please make sure you have a working phone or ability to email once you arrive outside.

House Rules

Number one rule, please make your bed every morning. Good communication and friendliness with the host is a must. You must love dogs, but please do not feed or walk her unless I ask you too. **However, you must be willing to walk her if I can not get home from work in time and I ask you to.**
If you are not comfortable with dogs this not the place for you.

Please be tidy, respectful and quiet. I have a trusted friend who has a key to my apartment and will often use my bedroom as an office during the day, when I'm out.

If you are leaving for the day, please turn off lights that are not in use.

Please clean up after using the bathroom or kitchen. Including drying up wet spots after using the sink (this is a big pet peeve of mine.) Please do not stay in the bathroom too long or take more than one shower a day.

No smoking inside or drugs addicts (including prescription drug abusers). Please keep alcohol to a manageable level. Please keep all doors locked at all times, including the sliding patio door.

No outside guest in the apartment without my direct approval for any reason. I am very strict about this.

Once you book there will be an additional set of instructions and rules in the House Manual, please read this.
