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.
I loved this little home in WeHo. Beautifully designed and decorated with an amazing host. Todd was extremely quick and helpful with answering any questions prior to arrival and during my stay. I ended up extending my trip and staying in the 2nd guest rental on the same property which was just as amazing.
Lovely location. Everything you need for a home away from home. Sleep with the windows open and smell the roses.
Really can't fault this place, or our host, Todd. The place looks exactly like the pictures, and is in a fantastic position - close to everything, but also quiet enough for some R&R. We were constantly out and about, so not a lot of opportunity for Todd to give us advice on things, so it was very helpful several times with Todd giving local advice through Airbnb - it's those sort of touches that make the stay just that bit more special. 10 out of 10. Thanks Todd!
This was the best place I've stayed in Los Angeles by far. The location is perfect, the neighbourhood was quiet but still only walking distance away from the nice restaurants and bars in WeHo. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you need, the bed was comfortable and everything super clean. Also the apartment had a beautiful charm and atmosphere, Internet was super fast and everything was taking care of, including free magazines and a guest parking pass. Todd was helping a lot with additional questions, he organised a discount at a local gym for me and gave me many additional tipps. Last but not least, as a tall person I really appreciated the showerhead being higher than usual. I can only highly recommend this place, it felt almost like being home.
Top marks to Todd. We were greeted on arrival. The guest house is well appointed, clean and comfortable, situated in a quiet residential neighbourhood. Attention to detail is evident throughout.
The description for this property says it is Elegant. It was certainly that and much more. Traveling away from home so much it was delightful to stay in this centrally located, well appointed and stylish apartment. Todd was very friendly and remained visible at all times without being intrusive. When I arrived he had kindly reserved me a space out front to park and made sure the air conditioning was on as it was a warm day. Throughout my stay he sent me a few helpful notes which I really appreciated. The apartment is in a very nice location and felt very safe and secure. I walk a lot so appreciated the ability to walk to local bars and restaurants. Will certainly be back!

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.
