About this listing
Recently remodeled 2 story Home with 2 guest rooms available. Spanish - Mediterrainean style home is located near Universal Studios. Adjacent to Studio City, NoHo, and easy access to Hollywood.
Both Guest rooms have queen size beds and a private full bathroom.
The Kitchen has all the amenities you could hope for, for those of you who are itching to eat in.
The beautifully landscaped back yard has a deck and outdoor grill, with a fire pit, jacuzzi and pool, which can be heated as needed.
Cable TV, and WiFi, washer and dryer, Central Air, and a most friendly and easy going host.
I have always loved opening my home to my friends for as long as I can remember. And filling my home with new friends and happy visitors is what it's all about.
Parking is available on the street.
There are many restaurants in the neighborhood. Ventura Blvd. has almost any type of cuisine you might want. Some of my favorites are Ca Del Sol on Cahuenga. Eclectic Cafe on Lankershim. And Chez Nous on Riverside Drive.
The North Hollywood Metro is about a half mile mile up Lankershim. And the Univesal Station is alomst the same distance south.
We have an adolescent puppy now, so we are no longer accepting guests with pets.
There is no smoking inside, but outside on the deck you may smoke. Each Bedroom has a Queen size bed
This is a great place to stay. Didn't get the chance to meet Jamie himself. But Chuck was a very nice host for us. Also this area is very safe and the house was clean. They have an amazing backyard with a pool&jacuzzi and not to forget about the cute puppies they have. We really enjoyed our stay!!
Jamie is an amazing host. Right from the beginning he makes you feel welcome in his home. I stayed there with my 12 year old daughter.
The description is very accurate. Although I did share a bathroom with another renter it was very comfortable. The bathroom is large and has a separate tub and shower. The bed was comfortable and we had plenty of storage. Since there is a small living room to enjoy we did not feel confined. The kitchen is beautiful and Jamie made sure we felt welcome cooking in it. We had full access to the washer and dryer which made life much easier.
I loved sitting out by the pool in the morning or for meals. Such a private retreat from the busy city. The neighborhood is in a great location, close to needed stores and easy access to the highway. I felt safe walking around the area. The two dogs are wonderfully sweet and great company.
My stay in LA was wonderful. From the moment I stepped into Jamie, Chuck and their two little wonderful dogs house I felt welcomed. Their garden was perfect to relax in after a long day at my school, New York Film Academy. The pool and jacuzzi was awesome. The neighbourhood was quiet and safe. I have absolutely nothing bad to say. They are so nice to stay with, I wish I can stay there every time I come to Los Angeles.
Wonderful hosts made us totally comfortable within minutes of arrival. Our bed and room were great and the beautiful bathroom was 4 feet from our door. We definitely have this place on our repeat list.
Jamie and Chuck made us feel very welcome. The neighborhood was great for us, close to everything we needed and quiet, safe and pleasant to walk in. We loved relaxing around the beautiful pool and backyard, and used the fully equipped kitchen just about every day. Their two adorable cock-a-poos, Maddie and Murphy, were a lot of fun and very loving.
We definitely would stay there again.
Jamie, Chuck, Maddie and Murphy were like my extended family while I was there. The room is top notch and is at the back of the house. I wrote from the patio in the beautiful sunshine during the day and warmed myself by the fire pit at night. There was nothing about this place I didn't like. Parking can be a bit tricky on street sweeping days but other then that this was a dream come true!
We had a super stay at Jamie's lovely house in Toluca Lake. We were visiting family who live close by, so the location was perfect. We didn't take advantage of all that Jamie was offering, such as breakfast, use of the kitchen and laundering facilities and use of the swimming pool, because we were so busy with our family. But Jamie is a warm and friendly host and it would have been great to have spent more time at his house other than just to sleep!
The bedroom and bathroom were lovely - very spacious and comfortable. It was wonderful to overlook the back garden and pool from our window as it is beautifully landscaped and very peaceful.
The neighbourhood was quiet and pretty and within a close walk to many shops and, of course, to the family we were visiting.
We were very happy and grateful to have found Jamie's Airb&b and appreciated the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. It was a real home away from home. Thank you Jamie!!

About the Host, Jamie
I am originally from San Diego, CA who has spent much of my career in NYC doing Broadway shows and travelling around the world for work. All of my family still lives in San Diego and we all still love each other! I know, crazy!
I love my career and I still act and direct and choreograph in the industry. I also teach musical theatre at AMDA, and master classes around the country.
I love Cooking, especially for friends. Gardening, and almost anything outdoors.
Relaxing and laughing with Friends and Family are big for me.
While I am new to AirB&B, opening my home to friends and family is not. And I have always loved having the extra energy and life in my home.
I consider myself to be very open minded and love new experiences.
UPDATE: No longer new to AirBnB and I am happy to say that the experience has been great so far. I've met many incredible people from all over the world and am looking forward to more of the same.
