Former artists studio in a back-house with bamboo flooring, custom lighting, and 12' ceiling.
Light airy and serene, a skylight fills the space with natural light. In the shade of a tree, the space stays cool most of the day and a good air-conditioner is available if afternoon sun makes it warmer than you prefer. There are both light-filtering blinds for daytime, and blackout curtains for those who are light sensitive sleepers.
This is a very cozy albeit non-traditional space, cozy for couples and perfect for the sole traveler. Please read this in its entirety to be sure it's a good fit for your needs. I am very happy to promptly answer questions.
There are things I like to show my guests in person, there is no self-checkin for first time guests. Please be aware that my checkin hours are between 2:30-8p.m. Sometimes I make exceptions for situations beyond a guests control and check guests in later. When I don't have a guest departing and the space is ready, I can also check you in earlier. I like to have an hour window of time set with my guests so that you aren't kept waiting, and I can plan my day.
One large room (260 sq. ft.) contains the comfortable queen bed, a garment and shoe rack, ample drawers, desk/table, TV (Netflix, Hulu, Roku) and sitting area. Internet is provided. For simple meals and snacks find an apartment fridge, microwave and coffee maker. There is ample dish and flat ware. Bottled water, coffee and tea are provided. Continental breakfast is provided at no extra charge.
Step through french-doors onto enclosed private patio through second french doors to adjacent foyer with your private bathroom. In the bathroom foyer find an iron and board and broom. In the bathroom find a rain shower head, extra towels, a basic hair dryer, soaps and shampoos.
Laundry service is provided for stays of 4 days or more for no extra charge.
In addition to your enclosed patio, there is an outdoor sitting area and a BBQ with charcoal (L.A. does have some "no-burn" days to help with air quality, I can provide extension cord for the coil lighter and the no-burn website if you plan on a BBQ). The back yard is peaceful and quiet but not designed for events. Visitors other than registered guests are not allowed. I make exceptions but only with prior consent.
Located in a quiet neighborhood blocks from trendy NoHo Arts district with restaurants and shopping. 3 blocks from Burbank. 5 minutes from Universal Studios and the Metro station. One block from Chandler bike-path, 3 older bikes available and they sometimes need servicing. If you'd like to use a bike(s) let me know prior to your stay so that I can have it ready. Please bring your own bike-lock and helmet (not legally required but recommended for street riding).
We are 5 miles from the Burbank airport. BUR is a "no-fly airport" between the hours of 10p.m. and 7a.m. During the day there is a little airplane noise. I have shy sister tabbies you may see in the yard.
This is a non-smoking property.
I look forward to providing a lovely stay for my guests. Special requests are welcomed and fulfilled if possible. If you are looking for a quiet getaway still in the city after a busy day in LA this is for you.
