Your pet is welcome here. I charge a flat fee of $5 a day, per dog. We have Faith, a 9-year-old female German Shepherd who likes to lay around and sleep mostly. She doesn't bark and will probably just look up and wag her tail when she sees you, but won't want to take the trouble to stand up to welcome you. :) She fits our home, very mellow and peaceful. We also have Chiquita, a 1 year old female Chihuahua mix.
*I have several different rooms to choose from at my Bed and Breakfast. If you have a large group, you can rent out the other rooms too. You can see the other rooms at my home if you click on my photo and scroll down to my other listings.

Interaction with Guests
I work from my home office located in the back of the property, and am always available for any questions you may have. I respect my guest's privacy and want them to have whatever they need to make their visit here the best experience it can be. I do enjoy meeting new people and learning about other cultures, so I am friendly and would love to talk too, if you have the time! I do like to give my guests as much privacy and quiet as I can during their visit, unless they want to chat :)
This is a very quiet neighborhood located on the hill under the famous Hollywood Sign.
You will be staying in the same neighborhood these famous people chose to move to:
Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss)

I loved the house, all of the unique decor, and the incredible views! Helen had everything organized and set up perfectly. She's definitely a pro at this! I enjoyed my stay immensely!
Helen's house is a dream! The location is close to all main Hollywood sightseeings, but at the same time it's quite and peaceful. Stunning views and a lot of flowers. The house is big, very clean, decorated with love and has an amazing positive energy. When you check in you'll find a complimentary basket with water and different snacks. Breakfast is included. Helen has about 20 sorts of tea and coffee. Fast wifi. Bathroom is filled with all sorts of gel showers, lotions and shampoos. Anything you could imagine. Helen is a very friendly and kind person. I totally love this house and the vibe it gives. I highly recommend you to stay here. 100% would love to stay here again!
Hellen was a fantastic host and the house was exactly as described. Beautiful location and lovely views. Very happy to see lots of breakfast options for guests (cereal, bagels, toast, bacon and eggs), very friendly dogs. A pleasure to stay at this airbnb would highly recommend it.
Helen and George were both very welcoming. I felt very comfortable and Helen was always asking if I needed anything. She even cooked me some dinner one evening when is been very busy with work and hadn't had a chance to eat. I would recommend this house and location to any of my friends considering a stay in LA. Thank you and I'll see you next time!
It was delightful to stay with Helen again . As I stayed there two years ago for a week, After a long road trip back from Vegas My friend and I were welcomed ,with a basket of surprises, what a beautiful cottage with the best sites I have ever seen. We were made to feel at home. I enjoyed my last day on LA in a wonderful haven in the hollywood hills. I will be sure to come back again. Helen was the perfect host. The breakfast was amazing , so much to choose from.
My one night stay at Helen's house was perfect. She was very accommodating, welcoming and gracious. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. I didn't utilize the kitchen but it seemed Helen had a lot of options for her guests. I did greatly appreciate the water bottles in my room and light snack bars. Helen is a great host overall.

I have enjoyed becoming a veteran host on Airbnb, having hosted over 500 guests at my home since 2013; many of them returning again and again. I have learned so many new things from my guests that has made my life richer-things about their home town, recipes, new websites-Things I would never have learned otherwise. I feel really blessed that some of the most terrific people in the world have chosen my home to stay in, and to share their wisdom with me.
I am of Indian descent; my parents immigrated to the US from Mumbai, and I have lived in Los Angeles my entire life. I My hobby is collecting "old" technology. It is amazing to me the jump we've made in the last 100 years. I have in my collection a 1950 television, an antique record player, a camera, telegraph machine and telephone. My favorite food is dark chocolate-- I have to have a bite a day! I love being a tourist in my own city; exploring all the special spots that most residents take for granted and never visit. I like learning the history behind a location, finding the best restaurants, and good movies and television! When I visit a new city, it is important to me to stay in a very clean, ultra-comfortable place. I love little luxuries, the best pancakes, the nicest sheets, the most comfortable pillow, the perfect cup of tea. Things that irritate me when I travel are: getting lost, and people that ruin my day with their not friendly attitudes. Little details do matter, and I love making that difference for my guests. I have worked as a tour guide, so I can give you those helpful hints that can make a huge difference when you are traveling.
