The space

Hey all! IMPORTAMT; recently a few people have rented the place thinking it is something it is not. It's IS a CABIN... Rustic is the best word I can think of but it WAS built in 1927 with VERY little done since. It's cute cozy and loveable to some but others will find cob webs or the counter in the kitchen which has broken tiles, or the paint stained hard wood floors an issue. I can not stress it enough... Think of it as glamping, I guess. You'll see I have a ton of stellar reviews but there's a few negative too.
The place could be updated but im not offering an updated place. I'm offering a cabin. A maid ALWAYS cleans first but occasionally people can't see that through its cabin feel. Soooo, really think about it, think about your partner. Do not rent if you want a place that's shored up. It's not. It's Glamping! The great outdoors indoors and built almost 100 years ago!
Thank you!

Even though this is only a room for rent, I do travel. That being said, you may get lucky and find yourself with the whole house for the price of a home, please make sure you are comfortable staying alone, hanging with and feeding cats, and enjoying an old rustic romantic place!

Hi all, lately lots of people are inquiring but not intending to actually book.
I have a 100% response rate at most times because I don't take your time for granted. Please ONLY inquire if this property stands out above all others, not if you are just shopping around. Thanks!

If you intend to do a photo shoot in my home, it must be disclosed and agreed upon before hand, the cost is NOT the same as the nightly rate. It is significantly more at times. You must also obtain your own insurance. That being said, message me. Thank you! Please do not rent and shoot without permission, you will be asked to leave with no refund!

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 ;) ;

Public transport is right at the bottom of our street!

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. There is an easel on site. 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.

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. None inside house, outdoor only
-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 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. STAY AND LEAVE FIVE STARS, no knit picking ;)
-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!

We were looking for a vintage/rustic place and this was as expected and described in the listing, the place was awesome! We wanted an old place with charm and didn't mind the bugs and old age. The host at first was very responsive and very accommodating, the only problem we had was the bathroom light would not turn on and we tried contacting him and the number given at the home but we got a "number not excepting calls" voicemail, tried text and messaging but nothing until the night after we had already checked out. So we had to use the toilet in the dark...which was a bit annoying. Lamps in other rooms didn't have any bulbs at all, so don't expect much light at night. Other than that, it was great.

We loved staying at this magical treehouse while on a work trip. It was great coming home after work to a glistening sunset on the deck, relaxing with a glass of wine, playing a board game, reading a book, or taking a bath. Thanks for the stay!

This home is absolutely beautiful, peaceful, and comfortable! It just kind of takes you in and you feel right at home. One of the gems is the porch with a gorgeous view overlooking Silver Lake and beyond! Lots of great eclectic touches as well books, decor, etc. I appreciated how secluded it feels but yet is still close to all of the local shops and restaurants. Our host communicated well which made the details of parking and getting in and out of the home easy. Highly recommend a stay here.

Very beautiful location, I enjoyed spending time on the porch with a glass of wine overlooking the city. I definitely heard coyotes howling in the hills! The listing is very accurately described if you read thoroughly. All the linens and towels were new and cozy. Right down the street from the Whole Foods Outlet (365) if you want to do some cooking in the kitchen. Dino's communication was quick and booking and checking in was seamless.
