Interaction with Guests
I am very flexible and adaptable when it comes to interaction with guests. Some guest only need a safe and comfortable room and besides a quick good morning and hello I don't see much of them. Others may have a little more time or actually prefer a little bit more interaction and I enjoy that too. I understand both needs and just want my guests to have a wonderful time and to get the most out of their stay with me, wether that is a look into living as a local or getting accomplished what they came to do. I adapt to my guests needs as I sense what they would prefer.
My house is located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods of not just Hollywood but also all of Los Angeles: the Hollywood hills and more precise, historic Beachwood canyon. The neighborhood was developed in the 1920's. The canyon has its own market, coffee shop and horse stables. Since its conception it's been favored creative people from all over the world, such as directors, actors and musicians. Beachwood canyon is most known for being right below the Hollywood sign.
Right around the corner with Beachwood is Franklin Village (cross street is Franklin) with many restaurants, boutiques, cafes, super market, high end pet store, used book and record store, dry cleaners etc. etc.
At walking distance from cafe's, restaurants, supermarkets, boutiques and more. Located at a stone's throw from Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood & Vine, (Mann's Chinese Theater, Walk of Fame etc.), Sunday's Hollywood Farmers Market, Trader Joe's & fantastic restaurants (several in walking distance).
Located conveniently to Universal Studios and Universal City Walk (by car or public transportation) and only a short drive to all major film studios in the San Fernando Valley (Warner, Disney etc.)
Hikers can start their walks directly from the house or go by car to the Ferndell, Vermont or Crystal Springs Rd entrances to Griffith Park.
For those who like to go out, close to Hollywood nightlife and many fantastic restaurants, from $ to $$$.
L.A. is still a car city but my location can be reached very well by public transportation. There is even a small bus that runs every 15 minutes from Hollywood and Vine into Beachwood canyon and stops at about 200 yards from my house. At Hollywood and Vine is the subway stop for the red line going to Universal studios in one direction and to Union station in the other. By changing to the blue line you can go to downtown L.A. Also at Hollywood and Vine are many stops for bus lines with L.A.'s metro system (busses, not underground). Of course there are also taxi's, there is a taxi stop behind the W Hotel (pretty much Hollywood and Vine also) and of course Uber and Lyft. Their cars usually show up in 6 minutes or less! To and from LAX, a shuttle is a very affordable but still comfortable and no-hassle way to travel. I'll gladly advise any guest how best to travel to their destination(s).
Transportation prices: to and from LAX: Bus and Subway: under $5 (you pay with your time), Shuttle: $27+tip, Uber: $28-$36, Taxi: $60+tip.
Other Things to Note
Unlike some listings that give the same impression, guests who stay with me are the ONLY guests, so there are no surprises of having to share the common spaces or driveway with other people, or being woken up by people coming home at 5 am. I am only mentioning this because of inquiries made with me and experiences from guests with other listings. This listing is my only one, I don't run several places.
My house is my sanctuary as it can be yours during your visit to Los Angeles.
Please treat it with respect.
No smoking indoors, no drugs, no parties and no overnight guests.
Please let me know if you'd rather sleep under 2 comforters than one queen sized, if you come with 2 people.
