This is a large spacious room with a large tv (with over 500 channels), walk in closet, mini refrigerator, desk and a Queen size bed. WiFi is throughout the house. It was the master bedroom originally.

The space

This beautiful, warm, large home is located in an exclusive and very safe area of Burbank known as the Rancho Equestrian. The area is dedicated to homeowners with horses. Our home was built in 1938 in the Art Moderne style, with curving walls and hardwood floors throughout. The house was renovated in 2006 and the interior again in 2011

Hollywood star Ava Gardner and her husband (#2), big band jazz musician Artie Shaw lived here in the early 1940's.

The guest room is a spacious 15' x 12' with windows on two sides. It includes a 6' x 6' walk-in closet. The room also includes a Queen bed, 32' Sony TV, DirectTV with over 500 free channels, large desk, free internet connection, shelf space, mini-frig, and a private full bathroom.

The house has a library with over 1,000 books for your enjoyment, a large, comfortable living room with wood burning fireplace. The beautiful dining room seats 12 and has wall to wall, floor to ceiling windows and French doors opening to the patio rose garden. We have a large, modern, eat-in kitchen. Central air conditioning and heating.

A complimentary continental breakfast is included; box lunches are available for a small fee. Internet and DirecTV included. Upon request, free fax, copier, scanner, laptop computer, and printer. Laundry facilities.

Outside, we're on a double sized lot where there are four gardens, of which two are secluded by high walls, with over 100 rose bushes, fruit trees (guava, cuties), and extensive various species of lavender.

For musicians and songwriters, we have a detached High Sierras style cabin entirely paneled in honey colored knotty pine and fully instrument-equipped for qualified musicians. Built-in fireplace.

We have a horse stable with three stalls and a turn-out for those who want to bring their horses for an additional stabling fee. The Los Angeles Equestrian Center, a premier horse facility, is 8 minutes walk from our house. At least 6 stables with rental horses and guides are within close walking distance with over 200 miles of horse trails virtually across the street from us.

Plenty of off street parking for cars or even oversize rigs. Many visitors and local residents walk here.

Several restaurants are within walking distance, some with live music nightly.

Hey everyone, my girlfriend and I planned a road trip through the west coast of America in September 2017. For our stay in Los Angeles, which was our first stop, we decided to book an Airbnb. It was our first time choosing Airbnb instead of a hotel and so we were a bit skeptical about it before we had started our trip. But at the time we arrived at this very beautiful location and met our hosts Phyllis and Randy, our worries flew away from one second to the other. We have never had such a great stay with such nice people before. Phyllis and Randy, as well as their super cute cat Max, made our stay to an unforgettable experience. If we needed anything, they helped us out. It was also a great opportunity to get to know the American culture a bit closer. Also the location Burbank was one of the best choices we could have made. It is a very safe area and you are able to visit the most famous sights such as Griffith Observatory, Hollywood Sign, Walk of fame, Universal Studios, in just a few minutes. So absolutely worth it. And the accommodation itself was a dream :) To conclude, we would like to thank Phyllis and Randy (and not to forget Max) for their hospitality. We can highly recommend this wonderful accommodation to everyone. :)

Phyllis et Randy sont les hôtes les plus adorables que vous pourrez trouver. Ils sont accueillants, arrangeants et connaissent tous les endroits incontournables (et les moins connus mais tout aussi intéressants) à LA et plus largement en Californie. Ils sont très ouverts et il est très facile de discuter de n'importe quel sujet avec eux. La chambre était parfaite et le lit très confortable (très agréable après de longues balades dans LA) C'était un grand plaisir de rester chez eux et très difficile de partir ! Nous reviendrons à coup sûr lors de notre prochain séjour à LA !

We had a great stay at Phyllis's place. They are gracious hosts and their home is stunning. We even got to meet their beautiful stallion Cavalier who's parked right behind the house! I'd definitely stay here again!

Phyllis and Randy were amazing hosts! The location is great - very quiet and safe neighbourhood. The driving distance between most places took around 20 min which we didn't mind at all. Throughout the trip they gave many great suggestions on where to go and made our first few days a lot easier to navigate. Overall, I would recommend staying here especially if it is your first time in LA!

Phyllis User ProfilePhyllis is a superhost.

I am a horse lover and spend as much of my time with them as possible. We breed the rare Andalusian breed originally from Spain (the horse on which most "Knight" chess pieces are modeled. Our horses are movie stars, have been featured in books and magazines and are all around worldly and wise. I love to travel, been to various islands, Poland, Hungry, Austria and England. Can't wait to see more of our beautiful planet. I am a music buff and appreciate all genres of music. My husband and I are both passionate, fun-loving people.

I'm Randy, the "horse-husband," skilled at mucking stalls and changing water buckets. In my spare time from that, I'm an attorney and a mortgage lending company owner. I'm also an owner of a fledgling film production company. Like Phyllis, I'm an avid reader, hence our large library, though my taste runs to classics and to baseball. I've been an adult league hardball baseball player for the past 19 years (left field). We both have a lot of other interests and enjoy good conversation over a glass of wine or cup of coffee.
