About this listing
Cozy 300 sq. ft. studio guest house on the Toluca Lake/Burbank border, convenient to studios and tourist attractions. An oasis in a beautiful, safe, tree-lined residential neighborhood.
This beautiful studio guest house opens up to a lovely swimming pool in a spacious backyard. Queen size Memory Foam mattress, cable TV (including HBO & Showtime), Internet, mini fridge, small microwave and coffee maker (no oven, no kitchen sink). The guest house has its own entrance, and is set back from the house, so you have privacy and are free to come and go as you like.
Less than a mile on foot to Warner Brothers Studios, 1.5 miles to Walt Disney Studios and a 2 mile walk to Universal City and the Universal City Red Line Station. 10 minutes by car to North Hollywood, 15 minutes by car to Hollywood, 20 minutes to Pasadena.
We are a mere 15 minutes from the Burbank Airport.
Enjoy our lounge chairs and seating areas in the backyard. We love folks to use our pool (as long as you can swim!)
No pets or children under 12. There is on street parking only but plenty of it.
Interaction with Guests
How much we interact is up to you. I like to meet you and make sure you have all you need. After that, I am usually available with a knock on the door or text/phone call but I like to respect my guests' privacy. The backyard is shared but usually you will just see us coming and going.
Toluca Lake/Burbank is ideally situated for a day in Hollywood, the Universal Studios Tour, the Warner Bros. Studios Tour. There is hiking and exploring in Griffith Park. It's a great location.
Walking distance to Warner Bros. Studio where you can go to a taping of "Ellen", "The Big Bang Theory", "Two Broke Girls" and "Mike and Molly." Coming soon to Universal Studios Hollywood - "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter."
And if you want to stay close to the guesthouse, there are plenty of restaurants, bars and stores right down the street.
We all know that public transportation is not great in the L.A. area but we are 1.5 miles from the Universal City Red Line Metro Rail station. The Red Line can take you one stop further into North Hollywood or in the other direction, Hollywood and Downtown Los Angeles/Chinatown. There it connects with the Gold Line to Pasadena/East Los Angeles, the Blue Line to Long Beach, the Purple Line to Koreatown, the Expo Line to Culver City and the Green Line to LAX and El Segundo/Redondo Beach.
Please treat my home with the care and respect that you would treat your own. No parties. Absolutely No Smoking - this includes E-cigarettes and vapes - or drugs in the guest house. No pets. No children under 12. This is a quiet neighborhood, so excessive noise would be discouraged. We do not rent for parties, film or photo shoots.
It was our second time at Deirdre's guest house which we like as much as the first time. Deirdre is a very welcoming host and the house itself is very convenient and clean. Neighborhood has some very good spots to eat and drink
Loved staying here! Deirdre was a lovely host and her guest house is indeed charming. Toluca Lake is so unbelievably walkable that I've fallen in love with it. But the mattress -- oh, that mattress -- is unbelievable. I asked Deirdre where she got it and now I'm going to get one too!!
This place is beautiful and Deidre is a great host! We would definitely stay there again! Thanks for the snacks and for accommodating us on such short notice!
Great pool house, would recommend to anyone. Deirdre had Snacks and drinks for us on arrival. Softest toilet paper ever! Loved the pool house
The guesthouse was absolutely perfect! Clean, quiet and with a beautiful pool. We couldn't of been happier with the location and decor. We would recommend to anyone and couldn't be more grateful with all the personal touches the host incorporates.
We had a great experience at Deirdre guest house! She had treats & water waiting for us and was very helpful for any questions we had. Would definitely stay here again!
Deirdre was great. She met us when we arrived and showed us around. She even put some snacks and a bottle of wine in the room for us! The property was very nice and quiet - our guest house was just lovely and very comfortable. The neighborhood is amazing and convenient to everything in LA - Hollywood is about 5 minutes away. We really enjoyed our stay and would be more than happy to stay here again.
