About the property

One spacious room, twelve foot ceiling and skylight.

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, great for couples and 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. if 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 with fire pit table, firewood provided (L.A. does have some "no-burn" days to help with air-quality) BBQ with charcoal provided.

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 bikes available but 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. Bring your own bike-lock please.

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.

About Lucy Chamberlain

I am a glass artist. Friendly and funny, i value my privacy and yours as well. I will be available as little or as much as needed.

Lucy Chamberlain purchased this studio in 2003

Why Lucy Chamberlain chose North Hollywood

Very peaceful, aesthetically calm and eclectic. Comfortable, simple and quiet. Great for couples and sole travelers.

What makes this studio unique

I'm present for your needs that might arise. I pride myself in guests being happy and comfortable. But I will leave you completely alone unless you request something. I've travelled a lot and know how important privacy, comfort and convenience are.

This is a unique and very meditative space. It is not filled with tchotchkes that you have to move to get at electrical outlets. As i mentioned i have travelled a bit and have regularly gone into VRBO rentals and put baskets with glass balls, tall pots with silk flowers etcetera in a corner until my departure. I try to keep it simple here, surfaces open for your stuff, and plenty of drawers for your things.

Comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Lucy was an amazing and helpful host and her studio was absolutely perfect. Quiet and conveniently located to Burbank and the studios area. Lucy was immediately responsive to any questions I had. Bed was like sleeping on a cloud. She provided bikes, which I didn't end up using, but would have been convenient if I had the energy at the end of the days. I would highly recommend this spot for a single or a couple.
