The Space

We state the treehouse as rustic. From the reviews most people get this and love the place. We have been told at times it is not just "rustic" but needs updating. Well, it's hard to please all but to reiterate before I reiterate 6 more times in the body of this description, this place is cleaned by a maid, it is not dirty at all, however a few of you very cleanly people see otherwise due to its cabin-esque nature. Think cabin in the woods and forget the Los Angeles part.

Hopefully that clarifies the vibe of the place. If you are at all pampered or anal, meticulous or a tad picky, please move on and look else where!

Cheers! It has been said!! Rent at your own risk, read and read reviews, if you sound like the 95% of people who love it, rent it, otherwise... Namaste!

Now, on to the good stuff ;) ;

This artsy rustic treehouse has been used to record albums, shoot films, photography shoots, by painters and basic lovers of an eclectic chill and rustic vibe.

Musician; There are two acoustic guitars, a midi key board, mic stand, adapters and some other odds and ends left by past musicians (though I don't know what they are :))

Artists and painters; the view is stunning with a huge wrap around deck, gardens, patios, nooks, a claw foot tub, tons of trees, and inspiration. My artist friend who is sitting here drawing wants me to add that sitting outside is a great place to work with great light, not just a good view. Check out the photos!

Film crew and Photographers; the above pertains to you, though the pricing is different. Please inquire. I prefer no tracks be laid down in the house but that is negotiable with a good insurance policy.

To all renters, this is my home, not just some prefab, turn key vacation rental. Please treat it with respect and take the time to replace, replenish and renew the place after enjoying it.

Quick note, all questions are likely answered in the body of this description. Please read!

A few starting points;
-CATS, gotta love em. They come with the house and need to be fed. Food is provided.
-This is an artsy home, it is not modern. We purposefully left the floors and wood doors old. We like the artistry of it. For example, the wood floors are raw with paint splatters because it was an artist loft in 1927 and we love the style and nostalgia.
-This house was built in 1927 and holds the charm of a french chateau meets tree house.
-Being a tree house, all areas may not be level, doors creak, deck is actually built into a tree and it is all reclaimed wood!!!
-It has a refurbished antique stove
-There is, brand new paint interior and exterior, new washer, refurbished bath, claw foot tub, awesome bed, bedroom, killer view and deck, trees and amenities.
-This is a cute little woodsy bungalow in the hills of LA, not the Beverly hills hotel. If you want clean lines and perfect cleanliness, this is not the place. We have a maid clean before every stay but there is nature all around. Leaves fall, dust sneaks by and we are by no means OCD.
-There are 31 stairs from street to pathway to house, please note...there are stairs! (Some people tend to ignore that warning)
This house is hidden from view , safe and secluded, tucked behind another house.
-The house is on a hill, you park on the street, there are no parking restrictions.
-The bath is raised and it has been difficult for some elderly to maneuver and would be dangerous for children.
-The deck has been restored and is safe but it is also not even or perfect as it is built into a tree
-The very two words rustic and tree house must be heeded. There will be no refunds because the house was “too rustic for you”
-There is wildlife, skunks, possums, racoons, and birds and they will all try to come in if you leave the doors open. Just shoo them away, that's what I do :)
-AGAIN...There are indoor/outdoor cats. They need to be fed. The food is provided.
-There are condiments aplenty in the fridge and oils and spices in the cupboard. We think of that as a courtesy and we think of you more like boarders in a BNB then random tenants. Please understand, it is not tainted, left over food. :)
-We highly recommend this house to writers, artists and musicians. It is eclectic and funky, very pretty and inspirational. The neighbors and neighborhood are awesome and quite hip. Bars and food a city block on for more!
