This is a wonderful, quiet neighborhood that is just a few miles off of the Sunset Strip. You may hear some music being created by Canyonites as well as the chirping of happy birds. Smells of jasmine and eucalyptus fill the air.
Since it's a residential area in the hills, there is little public transportation. Taxis are available as well as a bus through Laurel Canyon about 1/2 mile away.
Treat the place with the same kind of love and care you treat your own home. No smoking please. Because sound travels in the Canyon, please do not make loud noise after 11 pm. No big parties.
Please set alarm every time you leave the house.
Put used bedding and towels in the laundry room, and dishes cleaned and put away.
Wendy and Rik were very welcoming and their house (both indoor and outdoor spaces) was lovely and elegantly serene. The kitchen is well equipped and wonderful to work in. We greatly enjoyed our magical week in Laurel Canyon!
Wendy and Rik were the consummate hosts when we stayed in their lovely home in the Hollywood Hills. On our check-in day, we were greeted at the house and given the grand tour which included all the information necessary to enjoy a carefree week in LA. The house is convenient to all the Hollywood attractions as well as the beaches. It is also very secure with both an access gate and alarm system. There is off-street parking provided, as well as a Weber gas grill, a hot tub, and lots of TVs. Meals were fun to prepare in the well equipped kitchen and the hosts left a generous supply of fresh fruits and snacks for us. Both Wendy and Rik were available to respond to any problems that might arise (there were none!) and were friendly and welcoming when we arrived. If we are ever in the LA area again, we would not hesitate to contact Airbnb and see if this property is available. We will also let our friends know what a great location and value Wendy and Rik's home is and strongly recommend that they experience the beauty and convenience that this gem in the Hollywood Hills offers!
We have just finished a wonderful trip to LA centered around Wendy and Rik's beautiful home in Laurel Canyon. Wendy and Rik greeted us warmly and with an assortment of snacks, milk, eggs and bagels to get us started. The home was well appointed with everything you could want for, including a glorious hot tub just steps from the living room. We know LA well and the location was just perfect. We had easy access to West Hollywood, Santa Monica, Abbot Kinney and The Getty. Yet every evening we could settle into a quiet neighborhood, where we could hear owls in the evening and birds in the morning. For those cooking, the kitchen was a delight and for those planning on restaurants every night, every choice was just a short drive away. And even the street itself is an icon of 60's music. As a family that has taken many trips to LA and stayed in a selection of good hotels and other BnB's this was our best trip yet, thanks to Wendy and Rik's graciousness and the warmth and comfort of their home. We truly recommend choosing this home to be the center of your next LA trip.
Thank you Doug! We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay in our home. We feel fortunate having a beautiful home and being able to share it. We also love helping people have a great time when visiting Los Angeles. You were terrific guests and we welcome you back anytime you are in the area.
Wendy and Rik are the best guests!!!! such a great people and a beautiful house, I'll truly recommend this house!! We just shot a student short film and it looks so good on camera, it was what we had on mind.
This was my first trip on airbnb. I'm really excited about how great everything worked. Wendy and Rick were really nice and helpful hosts and we had the pleasure to spend 10 days in a great house in the Hollywood Hills and enjoy sunny California.
Wendy and Rick helped us with any questions or gave us tips and suggestions for excursions, shopping etc.
We enjoyed our stay at this location. Wendy was very supportive from start to finish and always available for any questions. The facility is exactly as mentioned online so if you love mountains, its the place to stay. Just a caution for those with AT&T cell phone, the service on the mountain gets spotty at times. However, Wendy was very kind enough to offer their house phone for any calls. Since the internet connection was excellent, i used skype to make most of my calls which worked out great. So all in all a great place to stay. Our daughter loved playing with their cat, who is very playful and friendly. We want to thank Wendy for all her hospitality. Sid and family
About the Host, Wendy & Rik
I am a singer/performer/songwriter/actor /musician and my husband Rik is a musician, songwriter and singer
In addition to our writing we perform musical shows with singing, dancing and comedy all around the USA. We both love people, all the arts, nature, travelling and eating great food and drinking fine wine.
Music is extremely important to me and my taste in music is extemely eclectic. I appreciate all genres of music, and love listening to live music. Theatre and movies are also an important part of our lives.
Some of our favorite visits we've had so far include Bali, France, Israel and Argentina.I love exploring new places. When I travel somewhere I like to stay and explore for a while. I especially love to meet the people in the area and experience the unique culture of where we are visiting. I'm not big into doing a lot of touristy things.
Having grown up in the Midwest, I am pretty grounded, but I also love the creativity that abounds in California. Spirituality is also important to me, and I meditate daily. That said, I also love to go to the clubs and dance like crazy! I was an arts educator for many years, and now perform and act full time.
I really love life, and people of all ages.
To me life is like a good bottle of wine that gets better with age, and at the same time I feel ageless.
