We are a couple in our early 40s (+ baby now!, who lives in soundproof part of house!), liberal, creative professionals who like to cook/bbq/have a few friends over for occasional cocktails on the front porch. We're laid back (but like things tidy) and friendly, yet respectful of everyone's privacy. You will (NOT!!! actually!) also be sharing our home with our mature, indoor/outdoor cat--very sweet, docile and likes a good lap! (Update!: Kitty recently relocated to Kitty Heaven, but we keep the "we have pets here" button clicked on for this site because we often welcome guests who bring their well-trained pets! And the back yard is shared with our guesthouse tenants who have a medium-sized labrador mix dog)
We think it's a great place, with an airy, breezy and relaxed vibe. Front porch has an amazing view, afternoon breezes and striking sunsets. (That said, if you're visiting LA in the summer, you probably already know that our lovely smog tends to make the view a bit cloudier than in the winter...but it makes the sunsets that much more brilliantly colorful!) Our fenced back yard has fruit trees, rose and vegetable gardens, lawn, hammock, firepit, (ping pong table and croquet set are available if desired), dining area under overhead grapevine strung with lights, and bbq. We share back yard with guesthouse cottage. This is a non-smoking house inside, but outside only smoking is fine.
Housewares and linens are provided...just bring your suitcase and groceries! TV and cable in your room if you want it, secure high speed wifi, monthly housekeeper and all other basic utilities are, of course, included. Plenty of street parking, usually within 4-5 driveways of our front door. No one really parks on this street unless they live here because it's such a steep street, and there are no permits required to park, or days you can't park for street cleaning, etc. So parking's pretty easy even though it's street parking only.
Cleaning fee - There is no cleaning fee if the place is left as you found it, with the exception of refreshing the bed linens and bath towels--we will launder those, of course. A $65 cleaning fee will be charged if anything more requires cleaning.

The room was as depicted and even comfier. The 1920s house has been largely kept in style and tastefully decorated with vintage cards, posters and artifacts. Hosts Jodi and Jason extremely friendly and helpful and Informative about local stuff. They were non-obtrusive but available to assist with any query. I enjoyed the peaceful backyard, not only for its hammock but also for taking my laptop out there and catching up on stuff. Great, relaxing views of the hills from the front porch.
Jodi & Jason were very nice hosts. They were extremely responsive and the commincation with them went smoothly. We didn't experience any complications with the hosts. Downtown L.A. and Hollywood were really close to the house. This made it easy for us to have a stroll there, since we only stayed for 2 nights. Everything was very clean and we felt like the hosts really cared for us. We highly recommend staying at this place.
Though I didn't get to meet Jodi and Jason - they still managed to be great hosts! Very communicative, friendly and organized. The house is very charming, and the bed was super comfortable. I loved the bathroom with all the quirky decorations. I would recommend this place in a second.
Such a lovely place to stay. Great location, beautiful house, cozy and bright. Spent 4 nights in the yellow room and felt very much at home. An old house with tons of character and a big sunny back yard to boot. Jodi and Jason were away the entire time but left plenty of info and were always available for questions. Highly recommended.
Jodi and Jason were wonderful, generous hosts who mad their beautiful home open to me. They provided a very peaceful environment to spend a few days and the amazing views, quite street and great neighborhood ensured I had a very pleasant stay. You could not hope for more respectful or helpful hosts.
Fantastic place, filled with charm and vintage furniture, great deck with view of the hollywood sign, super sweet host! And the most comfortable bed we ever slept in!
We stayed at Jodi and Jason's just one night, but we had a great time. Jodi was always very friendly and helpful, and their house is cozy and beautiful. Next time I need accommodation in LA, I will surely try to come back to this place!
I did not get to meet Jodi and Jason, but they made sure that I found the house without a problem, and were available via text. My room was fantastic, clean and cozy. The house is located in a great part of town with a vibrant and eclectic night life. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Great location and Jodi was very friendly and accomodating. Jason was out of town at the time so I didn't have the pleasure of meeting him, but perhaps I will next time I stay here!
