Frances's place is in a great location. I was able to walk to everything I needed (restaurants, shopping, groceries, etc). The neighborhood was also very quiet and safe. Frances was a great host and I would definitely recommend staying at her place!
I had a very comfortable stay in Frances flat. Communication was great and the room was very spacious for 1. I Would definitely return.
Frances is wonderful and she has the most charming centrally located hideaway great energy and would definitely stay again.
I had an amazing experience staying in Frances' cozy guest house. It was centrally located within walking distance to great dining and fantastic shopping. The house had all the necessary equipment to make you feel as if you were staying in your own home. The bed was the best part as it was extremely comfortable. Frances greeted me upon my arrival and gave me a quick tutorial. Could not have asked for a better stay in LA. Highly recommend it!
Loved staying in Frances's gem of a place. It really is a beautiful little hideaway studio cottage - it has enough space and everything inside to make u very comfortable. Real plus point for me is that its in the garden so surrounded by lovely green vegetation and has its own little outside space to chill out in . I had my tea there most mornings.
check in was so smooth and Frances was really great - only wish i could have spent more time chatting. All in all a great and peaceful place to stay in one of my favourite, walk friendly places in LA - walking distance to great cafes, restaurants and supermarkets and the very eclectic Melrose avenue
i wanna come back here and stay in a heart beat !!!!!
Frances was a lovely host, as usual! She was attentive, kind, and understanding of our needs. The place was perfect for us and we hope to be back again!

We are a non-typical Hollywood couple; uncomplicated, artsy, friendly, well-travelled. We speak English, German, French and some Spanish.
We love having friends over to eat and drink but also enjoy our privacy.
