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.
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.
Super cute place in a wonderful neighborhood. Plenty of easy street parking, even when we got back to the place at midnight. Just a couple block walk to great restaurants, coffee shops, etc. Easy check in and check out. Deirdre and her family were friendly but not overbearing. I really enjoyed sitting in the backyard in the morning and reading a book by the pool; very relaxing. The pool was still a bit chilly to get into, but this is April afterall. Other than that, everything was great! I would definitely stay here again.
We had an exceptional experience at Deirdre's place! Clean, convenient, very homey!! I would absolutely recommend staying here!
Great place to stay. Everything was exactly as described. Deirdre is very nice and helpful. The neighborhood is safe, and the pool house is clean and comfortable. Beautiful pool and backyard space excellent for lounging and relaxing. The bed is comfortable, and Deirdre stocks the place with snacks, coffee, and water. I will definitely stay there again, and I recommend it highly.
We felt very welcome and our hosts were easy to communicate with.
Deirdre was very helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed the snacks she provided! Its a lovely place to stay. We will definitely stay there again!
Great place to stay. Check in was easy. The place was spacious with lots of room to place stuff. The bathroom was a decent size. The bed was very comfortable. Nice, safe and quite neighborhood. Plenty of street parking. Lots of cafes and dining options within walking distance. Deirdre provided us with some snacks, water, coffee and wine upon arrival. She also gave me ideas where to eat so I can plan and book ahead of time. Great privacy. Close to the highway and Universal Studio. Would stay there again if heading to LA.
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.
