A lovely host, very relaxed and casual which suited us. She also gave us a good personal view of places to go, things to see etc which I find is invaluable. There's nothing like local knowledge. The room (guest house) itself is great, isolated and really large with everything you need. The wifi is a little stretched, it works best closer to the main house but that's not a bad thing. Finally, if it happens to be her bday, ask for an invite, the party sounded fun!
I throughly enjoyed my stay in Sarah's garden hideaway. Sarah was a gracious host and always took the time to help out when needed but otherwise left us to enjoy our stay. I found it incredibly warm and welcoming to hear an Aussie accent when we met her for the first time and it feels like a real oasis in the middle of busy West Hollywood.
The location is great, parking is pretty good. Lots of great places to walk to and it's fairly central.
Everything was absolutely amazing. The outdoor area was an oasis in the middle of a busy city. Sarah nailed it!! My only complaint is that I couldn't stay longer.
Magnifique maison ! très bien aménagée et équipée, et surtout très très bien située ! Le quartier est calme et vraiment sympas, le jardin est très agréable, merci beaucoup pour votre hospitalité !
Sarah's place was wonderful!! I was in town for the summer (June-August) for a job in Burbank, and so the location of the house along with the parking permit Sarah supplies was really convenient. The location in general could not be better - very close to Hollywood Blvd. and the sights and sounds of Hollywood, but on a quiet block. Quick drive to LA or Santa Monica (traffic permitting :) ).
The apartment itself was much bigger than I anticipated from the pictures (I hadn't seen it until the day I moved in!). The living room area is very big, and the couches are so comfortable. The gray one pulls out into an additional bed should you plan to have a guest. The kitchen is a little small, but has all of the amenities one would need. There is no stove, but a cooktop unit is provided. The bedroom is great - who can't appreciate a California King sized bed?? Bathroom was clean and towels were provided. Lots of additional storage space, too. The air conditioning cools down the apartment quickly (I left it off while I was out), and though it does get rather hot in the apartment if you don't use it, the windows in the apartment allow for a lovely breeze!
The outdoor space cannot be beat. Lovely place to hang out during the warmer weather days, and on occasion, Sarah's dog will keep you company outside. That area gets a lot of sun, and I spent quite a few hours relaxing out there. The jacuzzi is awesome!!
Sarah is a phenomenal host. She was very easy to reach via phone, but left me to myself while I stayed there. She also provides a little binder filled with awesome suggestions for local spots (bars, restaurants, hiking trails, etc.). She is super nice and very accommodating.
It was a pleasure staying in Sarah's Garden Apartment. If I ever find myself back in Hollywood for a bit, I will definitely be returning!

Staying at Sarah's place was a great start to our US trip. The location is excellent, as it's about 15 minutes walk from both the Walk of Fame and Sunset Strip, yet in a quiet street. Sarah was a friendly and helpful host. The apartment is spacious and light, and would be suitable for longer-term stays as it has the basic equipment for self-catering, and plenty of living space. One thing to be aware of is that you need to walk through the bedroom to get to the bathroom (if you are going to be using the sofa bed). The wifi didn't work reliably inside the unit but was fine outside. Otherwise at top place to stay and highly recommended.
To get here via public transport: If coming from the airport, take the FlyAways bus to Union Station.
From Union Station take the red Metro line towards North Hollywood and get off at Hollywood and Highland. From there it's 15 minutes walk, or take any Westbound bus (from the same side as the station entrance) and get off at Hollywood and Carson. Walk up to the next street West, take the next left and you're there!
There are also busses nearby that will take you to Santa Monica and other parts of the city, but do your research first as the routes can be confusing if you're not familiar with LA.
Sarah was a great host and her place was perfekt! We spend 4 nights in her spacious Beachhouse behind the main house. The apt is very well located – everything you need (Restaurant’s, Supermarked, Walk of Fame, etc.) is availible in walking distance of 5 to 15 minutes.
Sarah was always available to answer our questions and she was full of helpful information and local recommendations.
Highly recommended - thanks Sarah!
We stayed 5 days and found Sarah's apartment to be very spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the area and found great places to walk in nature within a few blocks. We also found a variety of shopping possibilities within a mile or so to our liking....Whole Foods, etc.
On occasion we found that the wifi/internet system did not work well within the apartment. It was more effective outside in the patio areas and after discussing this with Sarah, she is planning on improving that issue.
Overall a great place to stay at a reasonable and fair price.
Thank you, Sarah!

Sarah was great. Easy communication, let me know what was happening and when she was leaving. The house was cared for. I would certainly rent to her again.
