About this listing
Experience a slice of Shangri-la right in the middle of the city. Enjoy a cozy private room in a beautifully preserved Spanish home circa 1933. The room has it's own private bath and private back entrance. The deck off the room overlooks a huge private park-like backyard that features a hot tub, large swimming pool, BBQ area and plenty of outdoor seating along with a shaded grassy lawn.
We are only minutes from Dream Works, Warner Bros., ABC, NBC, Disney, the Los Angeles Zoo, and downtown Glendale, which boasts the largest collection of retail stores in all of Los Angeles County, with the Americana Mall and the adjoining Glendale Galleria as it's centerpieces.
Silver Lake, Los Feliz and Griffith Park are all a quick ten minute jaunt down the 5 freeway, while Hollywood and Downtown Los Angeles are only a 15 minute drive away. Pasadena is also close-by as well as downtown Burbank and the Burbank airport.
Only four blocks away is quaint Kenneth Village, which features a wonderful french bakery that offers irresistible fresh pastries and tarts as well as coffee. The village also features a fabulous Italian restaurant that delivers, and a unique Mexican eatery in addition to many gift stores, a Crossfit gym, a pharmacy, a butcher, a music store and a liquor store as well.
Your hosts Steve and Mike can accommodate special requests if possible. They are extremely knowledgeable of the Los Angeles area and can offer valuable insight and tips as to all of your travel questions.

We respect a guests need for privacy, peace and quiet, but are very social people and love to interact when invited to. Our backyard is a shared space with lots of room for people to sit quietly by themselves or join us in conversation if so desired.
Northwest Glendale is a charming enclave of beautifully maintained classic Spanish homes located at the foot of the Verdugo mountains with many hiking and biking trails. It is very pedestrian friendly and quiet at night.
A car is needed to get around easily, but there are bus lines on nearby Glen Oaks Blvd.
We will offer use of laundry and some kitchen use for extended visits.
Our house is very neat and generally pretty quiet and we expect you to be the same. We only allow smoking back by the pool, not immediately on the deck near the house.
Steve and Mike were great. They happily greeted me when I arrived and showed me to my beautiful room. Even inviting me to a small gathering they were having when I arrived. It really made me feel at home in their house. The room was nicely furnished with a comfy bed, nice flat screen tv (great cable), mini fridge, microwave and a beautiful spacious bathroom. The grounds were amazing. I wish I'd had more time to lounge by the pool, as well as get to know Steve and Mike better, but was in town to work and came in late after my shifts.
The neighborhood is quiet and very safe with some fun places to visit within walking distance. I would recommend a rental car, as transportation, in general, is not great and with their house being up in the hills, it's a bit of a walk for the bus system.
I would absolutely stay with them again when my path brings me back to California.
We love staying with Steve and Mike! We stayed with them last summer for a week and this summer we returned and stayed with them for our entire two months in LA. It is a really comfortable, clean room and bathroom and beautiful place to stay! Hope they are free when we next return. :)
Superbe ! Quartier très paisible et plaisant. La chambre est top et magnifique jardin et piscine. Merci à Mike pour sa sympathie.
Au plaisir d'y séjourner de nouveau
I absolutely loved this neighborhood and the suite was perfect. I opted for this instead of a hotel for a work trip and it was by far a better experience! Steven is warm, funny and respectful and their home is lovely. I only wish would have had time for the pool! I did have a chance to sit by the pool in A lounge chair and on the deck. I loved Listening to the birds in the morning. The Internet is fast, the water pressure is strong and the bed is comfortable! I took Ubers everywhere and the most it ever took was 5 minutes. Great experience!
We liked it to stay at this place, we had our own bedroom and bathroom and we had view on a beautiful garden. We came to lay by the pool, but the weather wasn't good. We asked Steven if it was okay if we left earlier than planned and this was fine. We really appreciated that, as we needed some sun. Thank you so much!
My 10 yr old daughter and I stayed with Mike and Steve for 3 weeks and they were the BEST hosts!!!! Friendly and helpful with great advice about the area. We were sad to say good bye. The property which is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Glendale and accommodations were even better than described with several amenities. The room had ample space for my daughter and I and the bed was one of the most comfortable ever. Slept like a baby every night. The beautiful backyard and pool area was sooo beautiful and peaceful and our room had everything we possibly needed. This being our first airbnb experience it was absolutely perfection at it's best. I highly recommend Mike and Steve's property. They are beyond welcoming and make you feel right at home.
Steve & Mike were the perfect hosts. They couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. The house is beautiful, the bed is comfortable and it comes with everything you could need. The pool and hot tub are amazing! I couldn't get enough of the hot tub! The house is quiet and is the perfect place to relax while being close to everything the city has to offer. I will definitely be back!
