Live like a local Los Angelino in an original Spanish Bungalow from 1934. Experience the thriving music, food and culture of South Los Angeles. Our home is in-between Hollywood, Downtown LA, Santa Monica/Venice and LAX, plus full of welcoming energy.
Welcome to the best hidden oasis in the central heart of Los Angeles!
We nicknamed our house "The Spanish Greens" for the lush garden and vibrant colors reminiscent of 1934 Spanish Revival bungalows. The unique character is in the home's original dark redwood floors, Spanish style archways, french doors melting the indoor atmosphere with the outdoors and original wood windows that capture plenty of daylight and cool breezes.
We are offering a modern, calming bedroom and private bathroom. The bedroom has a comfortable tempurpedic full size bed for one or two people. The large room is brightly decorated with abstract art and a wall of mirrors. The bedroom opens onto the relaxing garden and hammock in the backyard.
You have full access to the large modern chefs kitchen, WIFI internet, and free laundry and dryer. Make yourself at home in the colorful living room, among travel photos & available movies/TV shows on DVD. Or create an outdoor office by sitting on the patio to enjoy the warm LA weather. Or relax away the day in the hammock. If you come at the right time of year, you are welcome to pick the organic fruit or vegetables from the garden.
There is plenty of safe, free and convenient street parking directly in front of our house, if you have a car.
Interaction with guests
This room is across the hall from our bedroom. If you need anything, we will be nearby.
We are "work-from-home" entrepreneurs. On weekdays there is a strong work vibe, and although someone is usually home, we may be busy during work hours.
We are quiet at night and appreciate guests who like both conversations and time to yourself.
Other things to note
Our 3 cats are affectionate and friendly with our guests. They may even cuddle with you at night, if you like cats.
This year we rent our space to save for a hot tub. Last year we saved for our honeymoon (we got married Sept 2015).
