What a gem! My daughter and I had a wonderful stay. The unit was just as described but even more cute. There was plenty of room, plenty of parking, everything was very clean and tidy. It is close enough to walk to The Grove, Farmers Market, great food and Melrose yet just a few blocks away from each so that you feel safe, secure and quiet! Such a sweet couple that made sure we had everything we needed but provided us privacy and the pups were sweet as well! We would most definitely stay here again.
We loved the place!! Frances' place is bigger than it looks in the pictures and beautiful. I would definitely recommend staying here.
We had a nice time at Frances guest house. It's at the back of the main house, with enough privacy to relax. The neighbourhood is great with parking available without paying (Frances helped with that, too). The house is cosy and comfortable, clean and has everything you need.
I love the cute room very (website hidden) is convenience to go to market and restuarant。And the room is very clean。
This was a perfect apartment for a business trip. Quiet, clean, with a very comfortable bed, and all of the extras that come in handy for a longer stay -- pens, maps, scissors, shampoo, umbrellas!
There was always ample parking in front of the house, but do put the parking permit on your car at night and pay attention to the street cleaning signs in the morning. The $73 ticket was not a good surprise.
Frances and Greg were great hosts, as were their two pooches, who made my dog feel especially welcome! I was in and out, but they were lovely, good conversation, and made sure I had everything I needed. The guest house was clean, bright and the location was incredibly convenient. I loved the neighborhood and its proximity to great restaurants and shops, and it's a quick jog up to Runyon. They even left some breakfast goodies in the kitchenette, and the shower pressure was awesomely good! I'd definitely stay here again!

About the Host, Frances
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.
