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 queen size memory foam mattress is the best one in the house. Bed frame is made from a converted vintage Howdah (elephant sedan chair).
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.
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.
The cottage was cute, comfortable and extremely clean. The shower head is a little low in case you're on the tall side. But, certainly still nice and usable. We enjoyed the snacks and wine that were provided. My favorite part was the neighborhood. We walked just a couple of blocks to several restaurants and it was a $6 uber to Universal Studios. Great place to stay!
I've stayed here multiple times and just love it! The space is clean, bright, open and beautiful. Super comfy bed. Dede is lovely and welcoming but very respectful of privacy. The neighborhood can't be beat. Walkable to coffee shops, restaurants and bars and yet completely quiet and serene. This has become my home away from home for my monthly business trips to Burbank.
We were several hours late arriving and Deirdre was there to welcome us to her beautiful guesthouse. There was a bottle of wine, water and milk in the refrigerator. Coffee and snacks were also provided. She gave us all the privacy and space we love but was available when needed. The location was wonderful and we had the pool all to ourselves. It was nice to come back to the peace and tranquility of the guesthouse and pool after a busy day touring the area. Thank you Deirdre for sharing your wonderful guesthouse with us
My husband and I truly enjoyed the hospitality and accommodations. The home is in one of the most desirable areas of Burbank. Although we knew the area quite well since we were coming back for a reunion we still needed help finding a charging station for my car. They sent us to one that was really close. They are delightful people.
I booked this little oasis for my parents visit. Deirdre from the start was extremely prompt, accommodating, and very professional. The extent of detail that she went through to make sure your stay is satisfactory is beyond anything I expected. My parents kept telling me how amazing the space was, how wonderful and helpful Deirdre was, and how they would like to come stay there again when they come visit. I would highly recommend this wonderful guest house that is located in a phenomenal neighborhood!
The dede's guesthouse is beautiful.
Everything is here to feel like home.
The pool is a gift of god with such a heat!
Thank you dede for all.
We get to write another review because we stayed an extra day so I get to tell you more more thing that was great about our stay at Deirdre's guest house. Deirdre was a very fast and clear communicator. There was no wait time with her when we had a question or an issue to solve. It was remarkable and so appreciated. This place really is an oasis.
