I am a highly creative individual who loves to savor her environment with a glass of wine in hand. I live for music, fine food and adventures both near and far.

Our host emailed us very helpful instructions for entering the house and had a wonderful listing of helpful information including nearby restaurants. She had a welcoming basket which even included gifts for our new grandson! She had drawer space and closet space available, wonderful towels and a fully equipped kitchen for cooking.
Alice's place really is "glorious." It is beautiful, functional, and comfortable, and we (2 adults and 2 teenage girls) had a fabulous time when we stayed at her place for 8 days. We had a lovely home base from which to explore LA, San Diego and Santa Barbara. In the mornings, we had coffee and exercised in her tiled outdoor space, and in the evenings we played card games in her gorgeous dining room. The location is great and the hosts were responsive when we had questions. Thank you, Alice and family!
Wonderful experience all around, as Alice was very good to deal with from initial contact through the entire stay. She was very accommodating and responsive during the booking process and whenever we had questions during our stay. The home suited the needs of our family of five perfectly, nice layout with plenty of amenities. It is well wired for Apple technology enthusiasts, which worked very well for us. The kitchen was well appointed yet missing a dedicated toaster with a functional toaster-oven serving the purpose. The kitchen, opened up to the back yard which allowed us to enjoy the alfresco dining in the evenings. Location was perfect for our side trips to Disneyland and Universal Studios and generally worked well for all of our LA area activities. It is a functioning household which offers the benefits of access to items that are not available in other rental homes but it does require some flexibility on the part of the renter to work around the hosts personal items. One note, you better love antiques as you are surrounded 360 degrees by them and they add a more formal/scary feel to the home. All in all, a wonderful home, fantastic host and great stay!
There were four of us, one couple and two singles, and we had private bedrooms and plenty of space. We stayed for one week. We loved our stay! What a beautiful house in a lovely, quiet and safe location. The pictures are accurate - what you see is what you get. Would I stay here again? You bet!
We are regular travelers to LA and for us, the location of this house was just perfect. First, you're basically in Hollywood, so if that's on your list, you're good to go. Also, we spend a lot of time in SGV, and it's an easy hop to the 10. Beach? No problem. Downtown? You're practically there. Museum Row? You could walk. Or you could just enjoy the house and stay in the neighborhood. My favorite time in Alice's house was morning time in the kitchen and at the breakfast table, with windows and light and a brilliant view to the green and private backyard.
Note: the larger beds, though quite comfortable, are full/double size. If you need a queen or larger, it isn't here.
Fantastic house in a great area. We loved our 4-day stay. The house is very clean and well appointed, with lovely antique artifacts throughout the home. Alice was a delight to work with. Larchmont is a great area for meals, shopping, strolling. This home is in the heart of Hollywood, so you have easy and quick access to most things you'd want to do in LA, but it is a private and peaceful home.
The owners have updated their home info to include the instructions the previous guests recommended.
In all, I would totally stay here again. My family of four was very happy and comfortable here.
This charming little bungalow provided really comfortable and convenient lodging for our family of three during our recent five day visit to L.A. The home is located in the lovely Larchmont neighborhood (a neighborhood filled with stately old homes) and a sweet cafe-and-shop-lined village street is a short walk from the bungalow. The house was clean and well-appointed, and the garden irresistible for enjoying morning coffee. All in all, this rental fit our needs really well, for location and comfort, and the host, Alice, was super easy to work with in the reservation process, and very welcoming.
The one, easily remediable issue we had, was that - in keeping with the antique decor of the home - the stove and bathroom fixtures are also refurbished antiques. Everything works just fine (truly!) -- but figuring out how they work took a fair amount of trial and error. Posted operating instructions would have had us up and running from the get go - and kept some water off the floor!
Alice was a great guest! Very clean and easy to communicate with. We would host her again!
Alice was a great guest. Excellent communication. She left the home in great condition. Highly recommend her as a guest.
I have known Alice for many years now. We went to graduate school in Seattle together when, well, I won't mention how long ago it was... Let's just say that Starbucks was still serving coffee from a street cart.
Aside from being a wonderful person, a well-seasoned traveller and the most amazing host to all who visit her beautiful home - Alice is the nicest, sweetest, smartest person I know! So glad that she has finally signed up for Airbnb, because her house is a gem right in the heart of Old Hollywood.
Literally a stones throw away from Paramount Studios, her house is centrally located, clean, spacious, meticulously decorated, comfy and private. You can walk to some of the best and most famous restaurants in town. Star sitings are a daily thing in her neighborhood. Some of LA's best yoga, shops, coffee, pizza and bars just moments away.
Or you can just kick back in her quiet backyard or have a glass of wine by the fireplace or treat yourself to a home-cooked meal in her well-furnished kitchen. I can go on and on, but I'll just say that I'm sad my housesitting days for Alice are over! Now YOU get to enjoy one of the most wonderful places to stay in Hollywood - owned by the nicest host!
Before Alice was my neighbor, she was an amazing mother I knew and admired, and before she was blazing that trail, she was my friend. Alice is the kind of person who seems to have things done before the thought even occurs to me- "can I help with the dishes?.......Oh, they are already done!" After she's cooked a delicious meal, kept her kids happy, and been socializing. She's got great taste, greets everything with a laugh and a smile, and seems to have boundless energy. I've relied on her for band-aids many times, both inside and out. Why do I recommend her? Because if someone like Alice wouldn't be recommended, I don't know who would. She's a total class act.
What is it about a girl from the South?
They have a way of making you feel like a spoiled member of the family. I have had the pleasure of being Alice's guest many times over the past 20 years.
Her beautiful home is always immaculate, the food is always delicious , and incredible thought is put into planning outings.
The only other thing I wish she would supply for me when I visit is a puppy. But you can't have everything.
Other than that, being in her home feels just like home, only a little bit better. I know her Airbnb guest will feel the same.
