Studio City cottage description

Our recently renovated and newly furnished one bedroom Guest House has the charm of a country cottage, but a fresh contemporary look on the inside. The Guest House has a living room with high ceilings and a fireplace, as well as a separate full kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. It is newly furnished for your comfort, including a high-end sofa bed, a 40” TV, and wireless Internet, plus indoor and outdoor dining areas.

The French doors in the living room opens out to a brick patio, lovely landscaping and a pool for your enjoyment.

Street parking is always available, and you have a private gate entrance.

Your hosts, the Palazzolo Family, live in the main house, and are happy to help make your visit to Los Angeles very memorable!

If you are a fan of dogs, you can meet our pug, Gibby, too!

                      Universal Studios is only 5 miles away, plus Griffith Park and Los Angeles Zoo is only 7 miles away. There are wonderful hiking trails nearby. Hollywood and the Hollywood Bowl is 8 miles away – and just 17 miles to the Santa Monica and the Pacific Ocean.

                      Disneyland is 40 miles away, and we suggest making that an all day activity.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1993

                      About the owner: Hello! We are Laura and Michael Palazzolo. We were both born and raised in Los Angeles, but we have been fortunate to have traveled all over the world, and we look forward to hosting travelers from near and far. We met working at Universal Studios Tour may years ago, and we still live only a few minutes away from one of the most popular tourist attractions in Los Angeles. Laura knows a lot about homes as a director for many shows on HGTV (Home and Garden Television) - She is currently working on the network's #1 show 'House Hunters' and travels all over the country on a regular basis. Michael also used to work in Television production, and he is now devoting his time and attention to being an excellent vacation rental host. Our favorite American city besides Los Angeles is Chicago, IL and our favorite vacation destination is Hawaii. Michael's heritage is Italian, and Italy is our very favorite country to visit! And the current song that that makes us happy is what else: 'HAPPY' by Pharell Williams! And that is how we want you to feel when you check in and check out of our 'Contemporary Cottage'!

                      Why the Owner Chose Studio City:
                      This cozy cottage is tucked away in the back of a historic property built in 1936, and has some Hollywood history attached to it. The original owners were famous movie stars named Joan Blondell and Dick Powell. At the height of their career, they bought this Sherman Oaks ranch as a 'country home' that originally included horse stables and a chicken coup. This special home has had only four owners in over 70 years. The current owners are the Palazzolo Family who have happily lived here for more then 20 years.
