Historic Hancock Park Blue Room

House - Private room · S Bronson Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90005, United States

The Space

In a wonderful 1920's historic Spanish style house, a large airy private guest room with a queen size bed, completely furnished with Mission furniture, includes fresh linens, WIFI cable, and utilities, and walk in closet. Sometimes share bathroom, depending on who is in the house, sometimes have the bathroom all to yourself. Share kitchen, washer/dryer on site, large front and back yards with mature trees and rose gardens where the humming birds visit twice a day! dance/workout/ pilates studio in back yard. The entire home is beautifully furnished with antiques, hi ceilings, and hardwood floors. There is also outdoor dining if you so wish.

There is plenty of on street parking in a quiet residential tree-lined street; Centrally located in mid city LA, minutes to charming Larchmont Village where many varied international restaurants abound also the famous Larchmont Village Pizza Parlor; it's a monster hit! Best pizza in town. Drive or bus east a few minutes along Olympic Blvd ( it is not necessary to take the 10 east Freeway known as the Santa Monica Freeway) and you will be at the Nokia Theater the the LA Sports Arena. Drive west a few minutes and you are at the Grove (Fairfax and Third) LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art). Hollywood is a few minutes north along Vine Street, just three blocks west of my street. Beverly Hills is further west from Fairfax, along Wilshire or Olympic Blvds, Traveling still further west, you reach UCLA and then Santa Monica and the beach with famous Venice Muscle Beach. These locations are all extremely convenient from my house. LAX is only 20 minutes from my house along La Cienega Blvd and Century Blvds. Confused! Oh Well! Probably how I wrote about it. It's all OK. It is all so close and that is a plus because traffic here can be a challenge!

Walk one anda half blocks to the bus on Wilshire and Olympic ; UCLA is 7.6 miles along Wilshire Blvd (takes 21 minutes with no traffic. USC is 5.6 miles away and 12 minutes if there is light traffic along Olympic Blvd. Again, using public transportation you have easy access to Hollywood, the movie studios Paramount, Universal, Twentieth Century Fox, and Warner Bros.the Grove, Beverly Hills, Beverly Center ( a very recently renovated mall) Santa Monica and the Calif. beaches. Using a car, one has access to both the 10, Santa Monica Freeway and the 101, the Hollywood Freeway.

We have friendly cocker spaniel dogs which are all rescues from the Los Angeles Animal Shelters.

The neighborhood is very quiet, perfect for relaxation and study. We have hosted writers, law and medical students,actors and musicians. There is ample street parking on the tree lined street should you need it..

We look forward to making your stay in LA as comfortable and convenient and friendly as possible.

  • Jennifer was a gracious hostess and very quick to reply, easy to communicate with.

    The room was tasteful and large, very bright. You can tell she put a lot of thought into making it a nice space for a guest.

    As others mentioned, there were a few dogs in the home, but they were well-behaved.

    All in all, an easy, comfortable stay!

  • Jenifer was the most wonderful host, her house is beautiful and furnished with style and taste. She is full of information about the local area, and the history of LA being a long time resident. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with Jenifer she made me feel like part of the family, throwing bbqs and party's for me and my friends. I miss all of her dogs they were great company and made the experience even better. I hope to keep in contact with her in the future and look forward to hopefully returning again.

  • Had a really great stay. The house is warm and comfortable and Jennifer made me feel right at home and was a great help with getting to know the city and things to do and see.

    Would highly recommend to any and all.

  • Jennifer was very kind, and helpful to my mother, who stayed with her during Thanksgiving week. The room was clean and she was very helpful. My mother spoke so well of Jennifer, as they woke up in the AM and shared stories and experiences in the kitchen together.

    It was convenient, easy to come and go, and the time there was very much appreciated.

  • Jennifer was an amazing host and her house was absolutely beautiful. I had an extremely comfortable stay and would definitely go back again. Thank you Jen :)

  • I stayed for a week at Jennifer's house. Or I should rather say- a museum. Her whole house is filled with amazing wall portraits. I was thoroughly mused to see her passion for ballet dancing. And as I told her personally, will share it here too- she should probably finish writing her autobiography. She has so much inside her to give to humanity.

    I would definitely recommend a stay at her place. A very good experience.

  • This is the perfect place to stay in LA! The house is perfectly central, walking distance to buses and subways for New Yorkers and foreigners that prefer public transport. The house is amazing, like walking into a fairy tale: lush curtains, antique furniture and photgraphs of a time gone by that each tell a story. My room was immaculate, sunny, large (with a massive comfy bed), beautiful and complete with a bouquet of fresh roses in a Lalique vase. I loved my room so much it was difficult to tear myself away from it to go sightseeing. Jennifer is the perfect hostess with stories you will never get from any guide book. She was so wonderful she was always helping me with directions and buses and she actually let me join her on a trip downtown to places I would have never discovered on my own. Jennifer lives with a pack of rescue dogs, and they too are wonderful: all of them, sweet and friendly. I really did not want to leave I felt so at home and happy here. I can't wait to come back.
