We are VERY cognizant and mindful of our current World Health Issues. Before these troubling times cleanliness was paramount! Before and after every guest, we make sure all linens, bedding, and surfaces, especially those coming in contact with food, are properly sanitized. We continue to be overly cautious for our traveling friends!

This private guest house is located on Highland Avenue - minutes from Famed Hollywood & Highland. The unit has one entrance, is safe and quiet.

The space
The Guest house is a fully furnished one bedroom cottage - The lead image is of an outdoor cabana with a full working fireplace - after a full day a glass of wine and fire in the fireplace is the perfect nightcap!

Full kitchen with Refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, pots / pans, dishes, etc. - all the amenities...

The kitchen also has a small desk / computer 'nook'. A full sized bathroom with a large tub for soaking after long hikes up to Hollywood and Highland. In a small room in the same building is a full sized washer / Dryer...

Up the stairs is a bedroom with a Queen size bed, closet, television with cable and 100 mbps internet Wifi with Router and Ethernet connection.

We personally iron the bedding for a personal touch and use organic essential oils to the bedding and bath towels - we take great pride in creating an experience

We no longer allow pets on premises - we are a pet friendly home and, in certain instances, we will consider pets, however, we charge 15.00 a day additional, must have up-to-date paperwork including breed and temperament of the animal.

The original house, built in 1926, was home to a famous film editor - the house is filled with intrigue moldings and exciting stories... Hollywood Elite such as Paris Hilton, Oprah, Emmy Rossum, Toni Collette, to name a limited few have shot here - the owner has designed sets for Glee, American Idol and New Girl. Worked alongside Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz, Patrick Demarchelier, etc. - Always a fun story to tell and a beautiful place close to all that Hollywood has to offer!
