About this listing
This 1 bedroom-1 bathroom Craftsman guesthouse is the perfect place to stay while in Los Angeles. Centrally located in West Hollywood, one of the safest and most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods in the city, you're only minutes away from the best of what LA has to offer. Some of the hottest restaurants, bars and clubs are within walking distance. First class amenities in this professionally decorated unit include granite counters, hardwood floors, crown molding, recessed lighting and brand new stainless steel appliances.
ABOUT THE GUESTHOUSE:
This stylish house is quietly nestled off the street by a rose garden. It is fully detached--no neighbors or shared walls--and gets great natural light. It is one of two guesthouses behind the main house on the property, in which I live. I always respect everyone's privacy, though should you need something or have a question, I'm not far away.
The bedroom has a brand new, comfortable queen bed with high quality linens. The large closet has a brand new washer and dryer, so laundry day is always an easy one. There's an iron and ironing board in there for your convenience, as well.
Save some money by cooking at home in the fully appointed kitchen, which includes a dishwasher, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, toaster, blender, mixer and chef's knifes.
The black and white "Old Hollywood" style bathroom is tiled floor to ceiling and has a beautiful shower/tub with satin nickel fixtures, plenty of hot water and great water pressure. Yes, there's a hair-dryer in there for you, too.
Other features include recessed lights on dimmers throughout, a heating and air conditioning unit, a 42" flat screen HD tv with cable, an internet connected Blu-Ray DVD player and high speed wifi.
We provide a hangtag for easy street parking here in the restricted parking neighborhood. While there is no dedicated parking spot, there's often a space out front or within one block in any direction. We'll tell you the best/easiest places to look.
We also try to be green, so we use energy efficient appliances and recycle what materials we can.

ABOUT OUR GUESTS:
Please make sure your Airbnb profile is complete. When sending a message or inquiry, please tell us something about yourself and the nature of your visit. Also, we can make more relevant suggestions or bring up certain LA highlights if we know a little about the purpose of your trip.
*For the assistants, agents, reps and/or friends who would like to book the guesthouse on behalf of someone else, we appreciate and understand what you're doing, but we can only accept bookings from the profile of the person that will be staying in the guesthouse. We thank you for your consideration.
Restaurants, shopping, live entertainment, Hollywood nightlife, it’s all here. Please check out the photos and reviews, they really speak for themselves and show you what you can look forward to while here in LA. It’s an amazing space in an awesome location that really is one-of-a-kind. Thanks for visiting.
We only accept bookings from verified profiles, to keep things safe for everyone. We'll give you keys in person.
This is a non-smoking home. The city prohibits loud noise after 10p and before 8a, we generally try not to upset the neighbors. It's best for everyone. Along those lines, please do not pull roll-along suitcases down the concrete driveway before 8am or after 10pm. The neighbors thank you.
No foreign articles in the toilet please, as guests will be responsible for any costs to resolve plumbing issues.
Of course, no subletting the guesthouse. No tenancy is conferred. Any illegal activity is grounds for immediate eviction, with forfeiture of all payments. We've never needed any of this, but we put it here just to protect ourselves.
At check-out, please make sure there are no dirty dishes in the sink or on the counters (in the dishwasher is fine).
Generally speaking, please treat our home as you would your own. We appreciate it. We've been lucky and had some great guests so far and we'll hopefully keep that trend going! Thanks.
The 42" HD tv has a Blu Ray DVD player and is connected to the wifi high speed router, so streaming is a piece of cake.
Truly my home away from home. My 2nd stay with Todd and Jason and just like last time, everything was perfect and they made me feel welcome and safe. I extended my stay so this time got to stay in both cottages. Each one is as perfect as the other. Thanks for another wonderful stay in LA! This trip was a special one for me as I just lost my partner so I needed a real "home" to be in and Todd and Jason truly provided a safe haven for me. I couldn't say more about them and the cottage. I wish I could stay forever!
Todd place was just perfect. everything was like the pictures and even better. all what we needed was available.
Todd handled us the place clean and organized, and made us feel home. Also, he was available when he's needed.
the area (west hollywood) is very quite and safe, close to most of LA attractions, and lots of good restaurants around the place.
I would never regret staying in this place. :)
Since I made the reservation Todd was always very kind and efficient , when we arrived , everything was exactly as expected, the cottage is perfect if you want to stay in West Hollywood, very confortable, very clean, in a very quiet zone, Todd is a very helpfull person, and awlays with a smile on his face.
I definetly recommend !!
Another great stay with Todd. This was my second time staying here and it was just a friendly and hospitable as I remember. The premises is finished to a very high standard, it is clean and safe. Todd makes you feel very welcome and is always on hand should you have a question. Ideally located in West Hollywood. Looking forward to my stay in November Todd (and Pip!).
Huge appreciation and thanks to both Todd & Jason for being such gracious and welcoming hosts – their accommodation laid the foundation for a great stay in LA, we felt like we were at home from the moment we arrived. This is a superb location – quiet, a gorgeous neighborhood, walking distance to all the main shopping precincts and incredible restaurants. If you are lucky enough to come to LA this is the place to stay and rightly deserves the ‘Superhost’ status. We are already planning a return trip!
I could not have asked or a better experience. Todd's cottage is conveniently located in West Hollywood. Shopping, dining, coffee, bars, everything is very near. I walked to many things I wanted to visit - hiking up Runyon Canyon, hitting up some of the bars on Santa Monica, groceries at Whole Foods, Starbucks Coffee - all can be easily reached walking. Turn right on Santa Monica Blvd. and before you know it you are in Beverly Hills and then at Santa Monica Beach. You're within easy driving distance to many things as well - rent a car and have no fear of LA traffic - google maps easily takes you everywhere from the house. While I was there, I went to Natural History Museum, Science Center, a few L.A. Galaxy Soccer matches, the Zoo, hit up Malibu and Santa Monica beaches - among other things. I enjoyed the nightlife as well. As far as the cottage itself, it is as pictured - such a nice place to stay - kitchen has everything one could need to cook light, delicious meals. The living area is very comfy - since I was there over a week - I spent one or two evenings just kicked back on the couch watching movies - felt just like being at home. There is also the added convenience of washer and dryer on site if you want to pack light. Todd and Jason were both gracious hosts, extremely friendly and ready and willing to answer any questions you might have. The only complaint I have is I couldn't stay longer!
Good location, nice quiet unit. Everything you need to feel at home. On street parking only, but always found a spot within a block. Check in and out was fast and easy and communication with the host was great. No complaints.

About the Host, Todd
Originally from a suburb of Washington DC, I lived in Manhattan for several years and then switched coasts to sunny, beautiful Los Angeles. I love to travel (wish I got to do it much more frequently), especially to Europe.
Italy, France, Germany and London were some favorites, though I'm still adding to that list.
I teach martial arts and I have an adorable little 18 pound terrier/maltese rescue named Pip. She's fantastic.
