The Space


Please note: if you are interested in booking the room, id like to get to know you a little first so when I see your profile id like to see some pictures and something that helps me get to know you. Id like for us to correspond a bit to see what your needs are, your plans for LA and any questions you may have. In other words, I’d really like to know something about you before I accept a reservation. I look forward to meeting you!

Do you work or travel to LA, CA regularly? Vacationing? Are you tired of getting hotel rooms every time? Are you looking for a super fabulous home to stay in or possibly a short term rental? Then consider an eclectically designed and FURNISHED home and room to share in world-famous Hollywood, CA!

THE NEIGHBORHOOD is located near Hollywood/Highland, just walking distance from all the great Hollywood stuff! Arclight Cinemas and the Cinerama Dome, Tons of bars and restaurants in the famous Cahuenga Corridor, Amoeba Records, 24-Hour Fitness, LA Fitness, YMCA, Capitol Records, The Sunset Strip, top notch shopping at Hollywood & Highland, Starbucks and Coffee Bean, Kodak Theater, Grauman's Chinese Theater, LA’s famous Farmers Market on Sundays are all a short and enjoyable walk through the neighborhood. Family owned neighborhood market/store just across the street. Short drive or bus to Trader Joe’s, Ralphs and Whole Foods.

You will be just minutes away from famous Hollywood Boulevard, bus and sightseeing tours and the Stars on the Walk of Fame. Amazing hikes in Griffith Park, Bronson Canyon, Runyon Canyon are just minutes away. Walking distance to bus lines, mass transit and subway. Convenient to central LA, Silverlake, Outpost Hills, Los Feliz, Echo Park, Mid-Wilshire, West Hollywood, LACMA, The Grove, Downtown, Glendale, Burbank and Pasadena.

I am a 15 minutes drive from Burbank Airport, about a $30 cab ride. LAX is about a 30 minute drive and about a $55 cab ride. There is a new shuttle service for $25 wherever you are going, called Shuttle to Airport I believe and is located just outside baggage claim at LAX.

THE HOUSE is a newly remodeled and updated 2 brdm 1 bath with hardwood floors throughout. Lots of light, designer decorated, charming, safe and private. There are books throughout the house, movies on demand or on dvd, a private landscaped back yard to relax or work, a covered front porch if you want to watch the neighborhood bustle. Shared amenities include: Full cable, wifi internet, super cozy tv room with big flatscreen, dvd and fireplace, dining room that seats 4, all utilities, air condition and ceiling fans, shared driveway parking and/or street parking available with a parking pass (provided), washer and dryer, landscaped back and front yards, both with covered "outside rooms", alarm system, pretty well stocked kitchen with space for you in the fridge (you are welcome to cook if you like!), dishwasher, microwave and last but definitely not least… my dog, The Booh, who will shower you with love and cuddles.

YOUR ROOM is furnished with a queen bed, closet, bedside table, lamps, flat screen tv with full cable, ceiling fan, wifi, fresh linens and towels. Whatever you need is here for you. We share a bathroom with a huge shower but you have your own cupboard and drawer to store your toiletries.

THE HOST is me, Lora! I am a realtor, freelance photographer, dog walker who works away from home most of the day and at home for a few hours as well. I have a dog, The Booh, who is the most important thing in the world to me. I have an active social life but also really enjoy spending time at home. I like to cook, I am a vegetarian, I love wine and I travel as often as I can.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I had a fabulous time staying with Lora. She made me feel so comfortable the second I entered the door and throughout my stay. The house was beautifully decorated and homey in a great location just a short walk from Hollywood Blvd. Lora was always available and helpful for any questions I had about where to go and what to do which was great for me being new in town. The bed Lora provided me was so comfortable and cozy it was almost an issue getting out of it. Overall staying at Lora's place worked out flawlessly and I would recommend it to anyone. Oh, and her dog Booh was the sweetest :)

  • Fabulous house in a great West Hollywood location! I enjoyed the funky decor and the sweet, quiet dog.. Lora is a great host who in particular made sure I had a place for my car and didn't get any tickets from the ruthless parking enforcement.

    I was glad I'd found this place and will stay here again when I come back to L.A.

  • Hardly wanted to leave Lora's beautiful apartment, it was such a treat! Lora is one of the best hosts I've come across and I felt very at home, which was nice as I was traveling by myself. Super comfy bed, a great central location and I didn't want to say goodbye to Booh! I would love to stay again next time I'm in Hollywood.

  • The first thing that struck me about Lora's house was how well laid out, neat and organized it was. Inviting would be the perfect word. If Hollywood is your destination than you couldn't be better situated. Plus the neighborhood felt safe.

    The guest bedroom is separated from Lora's bedroom by a modern bath with large walk in shower, privacy was not an issue.

    I guess the best recommendation I could provide is that I would stay there again if my plans called for a central Hollywood location.

  • Great time, never intrusive and lets you do your own thing but still welcomes advice and information about the surrounding area. I hope others take this recommending. Booh was awesome and so gentle, PBs get such a bad rap and Booh is further proof that the owner makes the dog.

  • For my first Airbnb stay, I could not have wished for a lovelier host and home. Her house is beautifully decorated with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. I was in LA for a 4 week course so found it perfect. It's a 10 min walk to Hollywood and Highland so I was able to use public transport for the duration of my stay as I didn't want to rent a car. Coming back in the evening to a cosy bed with my own TV (with all cable channels) was awesome. Booh the dog always gave a lovely welcome home too.
    Thanks sooooo much Lora for making my stay in your beautiful home!! xx

  • As soon as I walked into Lora's place It felt like home. Lora was sooooo welcoming and made her place "my" place. Her dog booh was an absolute angel.
    The bedroom was perfect and the bed was by far the most comfortable bed I've slept in, beats mine.
    Lora always reminded me to make myself at home and do everything as if it were my home as well.
    Overall I loved my stay x100 and I would stay here in again.
    Thank you Lora for your kindness and generosity!
    Lara xx

  • Lora was incredibly nice and helpful especially considering my early arrival and departure. Her dog Boo was the best, so friendly and keen to hang out. The place was super nice and well kept. Definitely recommend staying here, great location and perfect hosting by Lora
