About This Listing

Queen size Memory Foam mattress, cable TV (including HBO & Showtime), Internet, mini fridge, small microwave and coffee maker (no oven, no kitchen sink).

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.
What a wonderful Experience! The cottage was charming, clean, comfortable, and we felt so welcome. She went above and beyond our expectations. We will absolutely stay again!
Another fabulous stay in Toluca Lake. This has been my home away from home as we relocate from the Bay Area to LA. The accommodations are so comfortable and the location is perfect -- walking distance to restaurants and shops -- plus a beautiful neighborhood for morning and/or evening walks. And Deirdre is the perfect host. I highly recommend the Charming Toluca Lake Guest House!
Dede made us feel right at home immediately. The location of the property was super convenient to several areas in LA and the outside of the property was as quaint and cute as the inside. We had everything we needed and more including acces to the pool, local restaurants nearby, and even some snacks and dishware to make our stay extra special :) Dede was nice enough to lend us an ironing board before some of our nights out and I really appreciated her hospitality.
The experience was excellent! The guest house was beautiful and immaculately clean! The neighborhood was so beautiful and an inexpensive Uber ride to Universal Studios and Hollywood Blvd. It was also in walking distance to great places to eat, our bank and several other convenient places. The pool and yard were beautiful as well. We had a great experience with our first airbnb! Thanks so much to the hosts!
