The space

My property in L.A./ lower Glendale consists of many adorable cottages with a central courtyard. All the same size/amenities. It has become a boutique extended stay of sorts. Most of my guests are here for at least a month and some over a year... I weave shorter stays in and out of the longer ones. For that reason I operate a master calendar. If you are flexible as to which cottage, quiet, communicative and a non-smoker...That's GREAT! Please let me know you are flexible as to which cottage with your first communication so I will know if I can accept your reservation.


Adorable! Stylish, renovated, one bedroom Cottage Style Suite located in the Southern part of Glendale, right next to Atwater Village, minutes away from downtown LA, Silverlake, Los Feliz, and Hollywood. Also minutes from Burbank, the Valley and Eaglerock. In a word it is extremely "central". On a tree lined residential street, the courtyard itself is loaded with sun and has lovely large palm trees.

This cottage is "house like" with both a front and back door. Though there are some common walls, there is no one above or below. It has hardwood floors throughout and is 1920's renovated with Design in mind. Great for singles, couples, business professionals, students, and tourists. All furniture and home items are solely for the use of our guests. Laundry on premises.

The Kitchen is fully stocked with microwave, stove, toaster, utensils, dishes, pots and pans. Each suite comes with it's own full size ironing board, iron and hair dryer. Included is a large, flat screen TV which is equipped with a streaming media device and an HDTV antenna allowing you to access quite a many local channels. GREAT Wi-Fi! It even works in the courtyard. Guests will enjoy a Spanish style courtyard, with adirondack chairs, chaise lounges, tables and chairs.

Silverlake and Los Feliz are 4 miles away, Hollywood is 6 miles away and 8 miles to downtown Los Angeles. Studio close, both for Burbank and Hollywood. The city of Glendale boasts a VERY low crime rate, even though it is minutes from Los Angeles.

Also close to Silverlake, Burbank and Atwater. You can walk to the all new Americana, which has lots of restaurants, bars, name brand stores, including Katsuya Bar and The Cheese Cake Factory. Ralph's and Trader Joe's are 1 mile away as well as Griffith Park, the home of The Griffith Park Observatory. Within thirty minutes of the mountains, beaches, and so much more. Close to the 5 and 134 freeways, as well as public transportation.

We can't wait to meet you!

I am the travel manager for a commercial construction company and book long-term and short-term hotel accommodations for our employees traveling nationwide. While searching for accommodations in the Glendale area, extended stay hotels with a kitchen were very limited and very expensive. So I turned to Airbnb to see what options were available. That's where I discovered Nuel and her wonderful cottages! Nuel was an absolute pleasure to work with - welcoming, accommodating, responsive, caring, helpful -- a perfect host! The property is beautifully maintained and landscaped with a peaceful, relaxing courtyard. The cottage my employee stayed in was comfortable, quiet, and private -- with all the comforts of home -- the perfect place to hang out and relax at the end of a long day! I would strongly recommend Nuel and her wonderful cottages to anyone who wants a "home away from home" whether traveling for business or pleasure! You'll find that Nuel is sweet and personable, takes pride in her property and genuinely wants to provide the best experience possible for her guests! Book this property with confidence!!

Cool and cozy cottage was all that. It was a great place to relax. Nuel was extremely attentive, even providing a beautiful orchid. The cottage was cute, nice furniture, comfortable bed, very clean, and quiet. I don't know how it could be improved upon. I would recommend this as a place to stay without hesitation.

Very cute, charming one bedroom with a courtyard in a heart of Glendale. Safe neighborhood and walking distance to the mall. The apartment was clean, very well furnished and equipped with all necessary things (bath towels, blankets, even coffee). Nuel was very accommodating. She was always in touch and ready to assist with anything (heating, wifi, etc). If you ever travel to Glendale I highly recommend this place!

The cottages were nicely furnished and very well done. The internet however was spotty you may need a backup internet source if you are planning on doing work.

Response from Nuel:
Hi Ida! I'm so glad you liked my cottage but I was shocked to see your review. I apologize for the slow connection you mentioned. I wish I had known about any Internet issue while you were here, as it could have been fixed immediately. I tried contacting you a few days after you arrived to see how you were doing, but with no reply I assumed all was well. It is hard to fix an issue if I don't know about it. I take Internet access very seriously and even have a professional IT guy on call. Since a lot of my guests are here for business, I realize the importance of a good connection and I pay extra for it, along with expensive WiFi equipment which allows guests to have excellent coverage even while relaxing outside in the courtyard. Had I been informed of a problem, I would have immediately contacted my great tech-wizard, Steve, who can remotely view my network wherever he is. He would have sprung into action on your behalf by determining what the problem was and taking whatever necessary steps to handle it. He even has the capability to reduce speeds for or remove guests from the network if they are abusing the network. Please do come back as we have one of the fastest internet connections for you.

I am a southerner transplanted to Los Angeles many years ago...and I absolutely LOVE the weather here.

I have worked for myself for over 20 years, mostly in real estate refurbishing, designing and managing properties. I love what I do because it is a great outlet for the artist within.

I love people of all sorts and boy do we have all sorts here in southern California. After all, it is only 10 minutes from Hollywood!

I would love for you to stay in one of my cottages! They are setup with guests in mind as they are not my personal residence, although they are very homey, warm and inviting.

I wish you all great travels...
