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.

Upon first arriving, I was struck by the incredible lushness and beauty of the garden of the courtyard and the verdant, wonderful details of the decor of both the airstream and the main home spaces. There is absolutely no way you'll think you're in LA while you're staying at this oasis, and my guy & I had such a beautiful experience relaxing and getting away from it all. This was a great "homebase" to have after being out and about, because coming back to this cocoon of quiet space after all of LA's frenetic energy was such a comfort. Alea, the host, was also very welcoming and a kind presence, giving us space but also being available if we had any questions or small talk. Loved it and wish we didn't have to leave!
Even after reading all the wonderful reviews, I wasn't quite prepared for something this wonderful. The whole garden, house and airstream are gorgeous. Every little detail of decoration is extremely tasteful and the whole place has a very special, peaceful vibe.
The owner is a remarkable person, I was fascinated by her stories and what she does. My only regret is that I was here only for a night and did not have enough time. I can't wait to come back next time I visit LA!
This place is just beautiful! The host is very sweet and nice, and the place is quiet and relaxing. It's just around the block from Starbucks too! I would easily recommend anyone to stay here just to get away from everything while not actually being far away from anything.
Amazing! Perfect! Paradise! ... so relaxing ... great vibes ... will definitely come back.
What a wonderful wonderful peaceful place in LA. I loved every minute of my stay here. Hope to return again in the future!
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!!!
