Our slice of Southern California tranquility is a peaceful, hidden oasis with a pond, vertical garden covered bathroom, outdoor/indoor kitchen surrounded by edible fruit and veg. Our little ground level treehouse sits in the middle of Los Angeles, it's pretty much 20 minutes from everywhere... beach to the hills and yet watching the fish or turtle in the pond, it feels miles away from a city.
The house, which you will share with Mileece and Anaponika the cat, has a washer dryer, 18 down 5 up wifi, giant SubZero fridge, the live keyboard player for Iron Maiden's vintage cooker and oven, a Toto washlet (I mourn being away from my heated seat), a hand-made stone shower, an outdoor bath and an 8 person handmade ash slab picnic table.
The room itself is actually in the Airstream and has a small desk, a dedicated closet and drawers for guests. The bed has a memory foam mattress a foot and a half thick, and if you turn on the bedside light, it illuminates a cocoon of stars so you feel like you are in your own private galaxy. The normal lights are one are 12volt hand-made ship style lights in case you want to do some reading etc. There's a sink with hot water, a composting toilet for night-time wee needs, and a large TV/Computer monitor to boot. And there's a PRIVATE for you outdoor shower made from original, downtown LA rail cobble stones, and very spa-ish so you can bathe in delicious warm so-cal sunshine...
We are five minutes from the Farmers Market/Grove on Fairfax and where there is a growing number of cafe's and Whole Foods and Trader Joe's all on the same corner. There are some really excellent coffee shops/eateries on Pico Boulevard, such as paper or plastic popping up, as well as on Fairfax just two blocks away, where nestled in between Ethiopian restaurants, you can find a wonderful rustic style bakery. There are also vintage antique stores as well as an Indian market and regular super market within walking distance.
Culver City which is teeming with bars and restaurants within a minute car ride away and Mandrake's, one of the coolest LA bars with projections, cocktails and dancing etc is easily bikable, as are all the fancy art galleries that cradle it.
We're also blocks (LA blocks) from Museum Row, a super cool cafe called Paper Plastic where you can get Intelligensia coffee, CBS, Melrose and places like Canter's Deli, The Mint and Molly Malone's.
Parking is free on the street - we might even have a car you can rent... !! And a couple bikes for those willing to brave the streets of LA on two wheels.

Awesome experience! Awesome host! Will definitely come again!
The best experience. It is truly an oasis. Staying here brought me a lot of peace. I did not want to leave.
This BnB is very beautiful and exotic.
So far the most lovely one I ever went to.
Alea is very kind and helpful host. She always ask that everything is going well.
This was a lovely place, very quiet and peaceful. The trailer itself was cozy and warm. Mileece was a great hostess, communicated well and even though the space was shared it felt somehow very private. Also, this is a great location and other parts of the city were easily accessible. I just wish we could've stayed longer!
We really enjoyed a stay at their Airstream home.
Although we did not read their construction carefully and faced some difficulties, Alea and her mother were super nice. When we had a trouble in the midnight, they still helped us.
We enjoyed their cats as well.
We forgot that we were in the biggest city of California while we were there. Yes, it was an Oasis!!!
A true oasis in the heart of LA <3
This is a fabulous space in the heart of Los Angeles and truly unique. It is even better in person than it appears in the photos. The garden is tranquil and carefully tended.
The owner is a very interesting person with a passion for plants and technology and I learned a lot from her.
Be prepared for communal style living as there's a shared kitchen and bathroom. For me and many others that's a plus since the owner was great to share with and very thoughtful and generous.
This is a unique and lovely little spot, we loved it very much. We stayed for two days, not enough time to relax and take full advantage, just enough time to feel enchanted by the spirit of the place. There is the feeling that each item you come across, whether it be plumbing pipes or the coy in the pond you cross to get to the surprising little living space behind the garage lift gate, is touched by a warm and loving, simultaneously child-like and ancient faerie of the forest floor. The manual for the space is telling -- intricate, detailed, sweet and charming, a nice read. There were quirks with the locks and remote controls, even these were like fun little puzzles to figure out. This space is remarkable.
The most lovely space, a portal into another realm entirely. Even what bird remain within the great metropolis congregate here to drink from the pond. What a compliment.. indeed, If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend it, even if it is ever so brief. This spot will not cease to amaze, wether it is day or night. There are so many hidden nuances and details, and such deep care saturates this utterly cozy and purely magical home. You are bound to remember it. You might not want to leave at all.
The most magical nature oasis right in the heart of Los Angeles. So much love and creativity. It is like stepping into another world where urban space does not compromise the wellbeing of those who dwell within it.
