About This Listing
A guest suite in the heart of Beachwood Canyon, you have the flavor of California living below the Hollywood sign. Perfect for extended or short stays. Sorry no film shoots.
A beautifully appointed furnished guest suite in the heart of Beachwood Canyon. The suite was conceived as a creative sanctuary for a musician, screenwriter, actor, director, DP, or traveler for either short or extended periods of time. Tucked in a canyon setting, you get all the comforts of a hotel, yet with far more privacy, cooking and entertaining options, and the true flavor of casual California living. Located in the Glens, it is right down the street from the famous Hollywood sign and is a nice retreat from the bustling city life below. The house is nestled in nature but in close proximity to the 101 freeway, many film/TV studios, and Sunset Gower and Ocean Way recording studios. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, and nightlife just minutes away. For those who prefer to walk, the house is just around the corner from the historic Beachwood Village -- which includes a cafe, day Spa, drycleaner, flower shop, antique shop, and a full service supermarket. The bus that stops at the corner takes you into the heart of Hollywood. For favorite restaurants, places and things to do, see our website once you've booked: (website hidden).
The space doesn't have a separate bedroom, but consists of two contemporary rooms appointed with high end furnishings, and the queen-sized Murphy bed is amazingly comfortable. The sofa bed opens to a double - and is the new Italian style without a support bar that hits at the hip.
This is a non-smoking house and is available short term and long term. Sorry, no film shoots.

It's such a great experience to stay at Vicki and Joey's place. I have to admit that even it was after reviewing all the nice reviews that we decided to book here, still the actual house condition and the warm greetings from Vicki and Joey were greater than we expected. The house is nice and just as shown in the photos. You can get everything you need here and I really like the interior design. You feel being surrounded by the art and music. Have to mention that the TV channels are so decent that we even joked that during the whole stay period we can just keep watching TV and not going out :P Before arriving Vicki contacted us on checking in time and provided detail directions finding the way. She doublechecked the time and waited for us. Vicki and Joey showed us around the explained all the items. She is very considerate and you van see she is detail-oriented. Everything was set up nice. We were excited to see the Murphy bed, both beds are all super comfortable! Vicki also prepared Croissant, fruits, juice, cider, sparkling water and they actually have very well collections of tea and coffee options. Vicki and Joey are all very friendly, they have a nice guidebook that you can find information you would need. They recommended close places to see and some trip advisors. Due to tight schedule me and my friend both regret that we didnt get much time to spend with them. I would highly recommend Vicki and Joey's place to everyone travelling in LA and hope I can get chance to stay with them again!
Vicki and Joey were extremely friendly and gracious. Made us feel very welcome. The property has very very charming garden patio with a fireplace and super duper BBQ grill. The indoor was very clean. Efficiency unit but we didn't feel cramped. Wonderful stay. Highly recommend it for Hollywood sightseeing.
Vicki is a wonderful host. Staying at her guest house in the lovely neighborhood of Hollywood Hills was a relaxing and homey experience. I arrived late (10pm) at night before a full day of business meetings and Vicki took the time to make sure I felt at home and showed me how everything worked in the guest house and all the amenities she prepared for me. All pictures are accurate and the home is a genuine representation of the hosts' care and taste. I would recommend anyone looking for an unique Hollywood experience to stay here for convenience to the lively parts of town and the trails to the Hollywood sign.
Vicky and Joey gave us a warm greeting when we arrived at their guest house after a 6 hour drive. Vicky had croissants, coffee, juice and cream in the guest house for us to enjoy for breakfast the following morning. Joey treated us to some of his homemade flan the following night. The Komers have a lovely guest suite on the first floor of their home. My son's eyes lit up when he walked into the suite and he promptly sat down and started playing the piano in the suite. The location is lovely - the neighborhood is quite, and you can see the Hollywood sign up the hill. Santa Monica Pier, Getty Center Hollywood sightseeing all very close. I look forward to coming back.
I counldnt have asked for a better place or host, perfect location in beachwood with the perfect host:)))))
What a lovely place to stay! Good location and wonderful neighborhood. The apartment was gorgeous. Vicki & her husband were so accommodating & helpful. Definitely would stay there again. We had a great time.
Vicki's place is magic. This is the second time my family has stayed here. The place is beautiful with great California indoor-outdoor living. We ate outside by the fountain and the fire feature every night. And Vicki and Joe are the nicest and most helpful hosts you could ask for. Highly recommend.
About the Host, Vicki
I am a native Californian, and lived in this location since 1981. Joey was born in NYC and moved to California when he was 9. I am happy that Los Angeles has become so very multi-national - people from all over the world, and restaurants to remind them of home! (You can tell we love food ..) Joey is Puerto Rican, and makes some amazing dishes: arroz con gandules, chicken fricassee, and most requested - his flan! We enjoy hosting people from all over the world and sharing our favorite places to visit in Los Angeles. If you visit LA during the summer, and you like music, please go to the Hollywood Bowl!
If you want hands-on hosts, we can do that. If you want hands off -- your idea of a good time is private, quiet time -- we can do that, too!
Our favorite vacation spot in the world so far: Venice, Italy! (But not in the summer heat. We aren't heat-seeking guests or hosts ..)
My motto: SEE THE WORLD THROUGH DANCE.
It used to be See the world through salsa dance, but as we are getting older, most salsa music is too fast for us to keep up with!
