West Los Angeles house description
Beautiful warm comfortable elegant this interior designer's tastefully remodeled 1928 Spanish home features gourment kitchen, Fortuny fixtures, oversize comfortable furniture and 2 affectionate indoor outdoor (no litter box) cats. The home is surrounded by a large tropical garden by award winning landscape architect, Andrea Gardner. Truly a santuary from the bustle of Los Angeles.
Situated 2 blocks from the flats of Beverly Hills it is close walking distance to markets, parks, and the express buses to Santa Monica Beach, Museums and downtown LA. Large two bedrooms with french doors opening to the deck and garden. Vaulted ceilings in both the living and dining rooms with a lovely courtyard and fountain entrance to the antique front door. The house is in a quiet pocket two blocks from hip Robertson Blvd. where fashion and wonderful restaurants abound.
The house has a large guesthouse (no bathroom) with a double bed, television, and full office facilities.
This is our home, and it comes with our two old outdoor cats who are very social...well at least one of them is, the other is rather a snob.
We travel a great deal and are happy to rent it to like minded people who want to visit LA. Just let us know what works for you and we will help you make it happen. This gives us the opportunity to keep up with our families that live all over the world.

Los Angeles Spanish home
Los Angeles Spanish home
Maralyn and Dennis were wonderful hosts. They left a list of local cafes, markets and coffee shops, even a tailor to help with a formal dress I carted from Cleveland for our family wedding. The home is charming, even two chubby cats sleeping in the sun. The backyard is everything we would hope to experience in our "Los Angeles home" Thank you, Jenny and George Cleveland

We just returned from a wonderful stay in this West Los Angeles property with our 20 yo son. This charming, 1920's bungalow was actually nicer than the photos indicated. The beds were comfortable, the location quiet and safe, the kitchen had everything a cook could possibly need and the large sunny deck overlooking the lush garden and guesthouse was the perfect place for morning coffee. Our son enjoyed the privacy of watching television or using his computer in the guesthouse. We were able to walk to grocery stores, shops, Beverly Hills and wonderful restaurants. The owners were friendly and helpful and we can't wait to return!

Guest comment entered by owner
Truly "home" every room beautifully furnished and comfortable. My husband is also very tall and appreciated the deep comfort of the livingroom sofa! Fabulous California King bed (wish we could get that size in Canada). The cats were a delightful addition, the Calico sat contentedly on the arm chair and watched me read and the grey and white curled up in my husbands lap. We are very grateful for the maps, restaurant menus, and the quiet sanctuary that is your home. Looks like our travel schedule will bring us to LA often. Hope to always stay on Durango Ave! THANKS

About the owner: Hi we are Dennis and Maralyn Leski. I am an actress under the name of Maralyn Facey and my husband is a retired attorney and author. We travel a great deal and love to share our home with sophisticated travelers. Our daughters brought home two affectionate cats 12 years ago and although the girls are now in medical and law school their social felines remain and come with the house. They are outdoor cats so there is no litter box and someone is available to come and feed them daily.
Why the Owner Chose West Los Angeles:
This is our home. We picked the westside of Los Angeles at the edge of Beverly Hills as it is one of the few places in LA where you can walk to everything. We have used vrbo for the last few years and have met lovely people all over the world, which encourages us to rent our house to like minded travelers. Our lifestyle enables us to be flexible in regards to time so just let us know what works for you!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Everyone who has stayed with us (we have quite a few international friends) calls our home a 'Sanctuary'. It is a welcoming easy place to stay where comfort is paramount.
