I recently moved back to LA and needed a place very quickly until my new home was available. Elayne was most accommodating, getting the place ready within 24 hours and providing everything I needed while I started my new job. The cottage is very quiet with a great air conditioner that keeps the place cool. The kitchen has everything you need but more important the little garden in front provides a wonderful respite the wold. This is absolutely essential in a place as hectic as LA.
I had a great stay in Elayne's cottage for 7 weeks, while I had work done on my house in Sherman Oaks. I work in both Studio City and Santa Monica and the location was perfect for easy access to both places. The cottage was clean, quiet and in a great neighborhood. Elayne was a responsive and attentive host. This is a great spot for people visiting that want to try something that's not a hotel. I will definitely recommend.
Elayne's place was lovely - perfect location, peaceful, cozy, roomy, well equipped, with plenty of homey charm. Parking is easy. The shower is an old-fashioned tile one with a glass door, and has the best heat and water pressure I've encountered yet - worth the price by itself. She's a lovely person, and made me feel very welcome.
We loved loved loved our stay at Elayne's place. She is a fantastic host. We had sold our home and were a little out of sorts not having a new home to go to, and during our time there we felt like we had a little home. She is a sweet hostess, and her place is really nice and relaxing. We are the kind of folks who like to just be left alone, and she respected that. I got the feeling, however, if you wanted to chat it up she would be there for you. There was some construction going on down the street, but it never bothered us. We loved our stay!! Thank you!!
Elaine was a lovely host however I must be completely honest in my review as I am a regular user of AirBNB. The guesthouse was as described in the pictures and spacious and comfortable, my only complaints would be that during the warm days the place would get so hot even my face creams were spoiling but the air conditioning worked very well when I switched it on. I must comment on an incident that happened during my stay, there is a neighbor with a mental condition and she wakes up at 5/6am screaming at the top of her lungs with the music extremely loud. If you are a heavy sleeper this shouldn't really be a big deal, I only mention this as I would have liked to have the option of knowing this before my stay. I did check out a few days early and Elaine was lovely enough to refund me for the days I didn't stay. I really appreciated it as it wasn't her fault the neighbor was noisy. Overall my actual stay was ok but since I was there for a work trip waking up at 5/6am every morning was not ideal.
Elayne was a great host. She welcomed us warmly and her place is very comfortable and pleasantly decorated, and is in a great location, a quiet and safe neighborhood a short drive from all sorts of attractions and restaurants. We plan on returning to L.A. at some point in the near future and we'll definitely be hoping that Elayne's studio is available! We certainly recommend it.
This guest house is spacious and beautifully decorated. It Is fully equpped to be very comfortable.
A convenient location between West Los Angeles and the Valley was an additional bonus because of all the freeway construction on the 405.
Excellent stay,lovely cottage and Bel air is a really nice place to stay!
The location and experience was perfect. Elayne made everything super easy. No headaches, no difficulty. The Cottage was just as advertised.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Elayne home. Everything was clean and just as the photos suggested. I will be recommending this apartment to other friends and family... The location is phenomenal and I can't wait for my next visit to Los Angeles. Elayne was such a great communicator, she was very nice, friendly and helpful. The place is IDEALLY located,safe and very quiet...
Will be staying there again,thanks Elayne!
Elayne was an excellent host, always available when you need her yet also gives you your privacy. The Cottage is a converted garage that's separated from the house. It has lots of space and a comfortable bed. The location is great, when you get there after all the hustle of LA it seems like you're in the countryside. Yet it's only 20 minutes to Beverly Hills, 30 minutes to Hollywood and much less to Sherman Oaks which has most stores/restaurants you would need.
The reservation was canceled 8 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Elayne & her friend Anne were really nice guests who were here & gone in a blink of an eye. They were kind and appreciative and left the yurt in excellent condition. We also enjoyed our brief chats. Our only regret, is that they could not stay longer & we would welcome them back anytime. Many Blessings
Elayne is one of those gentle souls who will do anything for you. A great hostess! I have been to visit with her and have a cup of tea at her house many times and it is always like going to a special oasis in luxurious Bel Air with its quiet ambiance and beautifully landscaped homes. Her home is very homey. She has carried this quality over to the way she decorated the charming guest quarters which are very comfy and cozy. She laughs easily and is fun to talk with. Elayne took me to Menchies which is a yogurt ice cream parlor where you get unlimited samples of the various flavors. She knows the places in Los Angeles where you can have the most fun!
