About this listing
A sanctuary in the midst of Hollywood attractions, restaurants and clubs. Set in your own garden paradise, you will be lapped in luxury…jacuzzi bathtub, pool, private garden. A private, secluded and romantic hotel alternative. 2 night minimum.
Eating nook floats between the wooden french doors and Double Dutch door that open to the serene gardens.
Set in the center of Hollywood's attractions, sits this completely private, serene getaway. Surrounded by gardens, fountains, and pools, you are still minutes from Hollywood and Sunset Blvds. You won't find anything like it in the area!
The Cottage is completely private. However if guests need anything, they have only to ask. The pool sparkles, the sun and lounge chairs beckon…enjoy!
Interaction with Guests
We love interacting with our guests if they want but respect their privacy. The Cottage can be very romantic and we have filled it with flowers and candles. So when you want us for advice, directions, anything, we're happy to help. But if you want to be alone to enjoy, that works too. We'll take your lead.
Our neighborhood is one steeped in Hollywood history. Houdini lived next door, and celebrities surround. Yet our street is friendly, warm, safe, and neighborly. You can walk to the Oscars, Grauman's Chinese Theater, and the Walk of Fame. You can also hike famed Runyan Canyon. From celebrities to solitude, we have it all!
There are buses one block away and the subway system within minutes.
Other Things to Note
THE COTTAGE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR FILMING OR LOCATION SHOOTS…SORRY!
Also the property isn't available as a party venue. We're happy for you to have a few friends over for a glass of wine or cup of coffee, but no birthday, anniversary, pool, bachelorette parties. Sorry again!
We love children and have two grown daughters of our own. But we discourage young children as our pool isn't child-safe.
Apologies to all our smoking friends, but we don't allow smoking inside the Cottage or outside when the doors and windows are open. We know how hard it is to abstain, and will provide an ashtray for your private garden area if you need it. Thanks for understanding!
Also, you will have your own private garden with table and chairs and you are welcome to entertain a couple friends there but no parties please and in the evenings, the dining area next to the main house is for our family only.
As cute as the photos imply. Lovely yard, with flowers and fruit trees everywhere. Great to come home to. Awesome location! Parking was no problem. Couldn't ask for a better experience. Our first bnb experience was really great!!
The cottage is in a great location and is very comfortable. Jeff greeted us and made sure we felt welcome when we arrived. A very comfortable bed and living area with wifi and Netflix included. The cottage opens onto a beautiful garden for relaxing in. Great hiking just up the road into Hollywood Hills and only a 10 minute walk into the sights of Hollywood. A great place - beautiful comfortable relaxing cottage in Hollywood - highly recommend staying here with friendly hosts Robin and Jeff.
Robin was out of state when we arrived, so Jeff met us and showed us around the cottage. It was even more adorable than the photos showed, and they were so kind as to leave a bottle of champagne and a Happy Birthday note :) Plus, it turned out to be even more centrally located to everything we wanted to do than we had expected!
We were happy to be able to meet Robin the morning before we left, and I can't imagine two warmer or more welcoming hosts than her and Jeff. Hope to come back soon!
Had an amazing and relaxing stay at the beautiful cottage. Wish we had more time to relax and could've enjoyed the pool all day. Thank you for letting us enjoy your perfect space
This was the perfect location for me and my wife while while visiting LA. Robin and Jeff we great hosts and went the extra mid to make our anniversary celebration special. Pictures don't do justice. This property is is walking distance to all of the Hollywood attractions as well as (running) distance to all of the canyons for hiking. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again soon.
Our stay were excellent, the cottage is fabulous, located in magical garden with pool. The cottage interior design was perfect and has all facilities we needed.
Robin was perfect host. She was so nice and explained about the attractions and restaurants aroud. She also provided us with great coffee and other breakfast supplies.
The location is excellent and there is parking places on the street.
We definitely will stay stay again at this place.
My friend and I enjoyed our 2-day stay at Robin and Jeff's place very much. The house is in a quiet and vey safe neighborhood, nicely decorated and equipped with everything u might need after a lot of walking and sightseeing during the day. We especially love the beautiful garden and en tried harvest an orange from the morning.
It's within walking distance (15 minutes) to the Chinese theater, Dolby theater and walk of fame and The Grove (very good shopping and dining area, 25 minutes) if u don't mind walking a little bit.
Our schedule in LA was quite tight therefore didn't have the chance to interact much with our lovely host, however they are easily accessible via txt and phone and the checkin process was smooth.
About the Host, Robin
I run a nonprofit organization based in South Africa, mothers2mothers. My husband, Jeffrey, is an architect. Our cottage has been a place we have traditionally only offered to our friends and family. But we have recently renovated, with new bed, furniture, and amenities. I love making new friends, have traveled the world staying in b&b's and have become a fan of airbnb. We look forward to welcoming you to our home and introducing you to all the wonderful non-touristy treasures in our neighborhood!
