About This Listing
We are located in Northern Glendale, on the border of Burbank, walking distance to Trader Joe's/Ralph's, Starbucks, and a 20 minute walk to Downtown Burbank. Close to the 5 Freeway, 134, Atwater Village, Los Feliz, Glendale, Burbank, North Hollywood.
You have access to the Washer and Dryer, the kitchen and any advice you need to get around in LA
As much as you want to :) We do use the kitchen! And of course, watch some TV in the living room. We are happy to give you the space you need.
I love where we live because we are super close to the mountains and all the natural beauty of Los Angeles (practically walking distance to some amazing hikes-I'd be happy to show you), but we are still a 10-15 minute drive to Los Feliz, Silverlake, Hollywood, North Hollywood. It's a convenient location! We are also a 5 minute drive to downtown burbank, where there are ton of shops, movies, restaurants and bars!
Yes, there is a bus system two blocks away! :)
I an both pursuing careers in the entertainment industry both in front and behind the camera. My day job is also very creative. I own a photography/videography company and am constantly editing or shooting. I like to watch movies, travel, camp, eat healthy food, hike, train at the gym, and very adventurous.
Interaction with Guests
I interact with guests as much as you want me to. Sometimes, I am super busy on a job so you may not even see me. But if I'm home, I'll be around if you want me too.. share stories, give advice on where to go, whatever you need.
I love Burbank/Northern Glendale. We are close to some awesome hiking trails, but close enough to studios such as Disney, WB, NBC Universal, etc. As a matter of fact, a lot of the guests I have that stay long term, are interns at some of the studios. We are also a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk to downtown burbank where there are tons of restaurants, 3 movie theaters, and the Burbank Town Center Mall. We are also super close to Los Feliz, Atwater Village, Echo Park, and Silverlake.
There is public transportation. There is a bus stop that is only 2 blocks away, however I would highly recommend renting a car in LA, or uber/lyft your way around if you plan on going sightseeing. LA is huge (75 miles) and we are only on one side of it.

No Smoking inside the house. We have a backyard and a front yard for that. We expect you to enjoy your stay!!! and have fun! That's what's important. But have a nice place to rest. Feel free to use the kitchen!
drea and her place were great. there's a ton of stuff to do and it's all close by. I only saw drea a couple times as she was busy but she made sure everything with our stay went smoothly. her place is really nice and the neighborhood felt very safe. just a heads up, you're prob better off using uber or something like that as it can be difficult to find street parking on the weekend but I never had any major issues. the room itself was very cozy and even with no ac and warm temps, I was actually quite comfortable with the windows open and the fan drea provides. and regarding people complaining about the hot water pressure: make sure to ask drea how to use the shower and you'll have no issue.
Great location, house, and host. Drea is very accommodating. We had to check in late but she was understanding. Good house and room with a ton of privacy. Would highly recommend!
Drea is very kind and friendly. She talked with us and we could go to her with all our questions. Nice and clean room and we could use her kitchen. Perfect!
Drea nous a agréablement accueilli chez elle et son compagnon malgré notre arrivée tardive. Tout est comme indiqué dans l'annonce, c'est donc vraiment parfait! Vous pouvez vous garer gratuitement dans la rue et êtes à proximité de Universal Studios Hollywood ou bien encore des lettres Hollywood, etc.
Drea was easy to contact, and respond us very quickly. She explain how to get in, even she wasn't home !
It's easy to park the car in the street, that's a good point. The bed was comfortable,the room quite clean, with space to put our stuff in. Not too much noises by night.
Nevertheless, the bathroom requires a renovation: we can't get a warm shower, and it looks very old.
Thanks for staying Fanny and thank you for keeping my home nice when you left! Yes, gotta repaint the shower walls - hopefully soon! Also, there's a trick to the shower - You turn the handle to the left and then let the shower heat up for a couple seconds. I assure you I would hate taking a cold shower, so it works just gotta know how. Most people figure it out, but I'm usually there to show someone how to do it if they can't figure it out themselves. I wasn't there that's why I said to text or call me for any questions. So sorry you had a problem! Much love and safe traveling.
Towels are available as well upon request...
About the Host, Drea
I am an actress, documentary filmmaker and photographer. :) I love traveling and discovering the world. I am an avid hiker and adventurer! Some places I have hiked are Machu Picchu, Peru; Banaue Rice Terraces, and Mt Whitney (the highest mountain in the lower 48 states). I love being able to share my experiences with people and I can do that through the pictures and videos that I take.
I also love cooking and trying new foods! Maybe it's my filipino blood that makes me adventurous!
