About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

If you're looking for a quiet, charming getaway in the amazing neighborhood of Hollywood Hills, then look no more. After sightseeing in Hollywood, or Los Angeles, come back to your little oasis...take the curved brick stairway to you private home away from home. You can take advantage of your full kitchen, which has everything you will need to make amazing meals, or try one of of the hundreds of gourmet restaurants within a short drive. Your guesthouse is surrounded by trees, greenery, and flowers. This cozy 450 square foot property is laid out like a one bedroom. The separate bedroom area has a super comfy queen bed and full bath.

We are located just down the street from Warner Bros., Disney Studios, and Universal Studios. The guesthouse shares the property with a great old 1930's Mediterranean home. Come and put your feet up and enjoy the trees, and the peace and quiet. Feel free to email me with any further questions. I'd be delighted to have you as my guest!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your home as our "home away from home" this week. What a lovely quiet spot in the middle of this huge, busy, and somewhat crazy city! We have truly appreciated your availability for questions, and your helpful hints as far as eating.

Perfect apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was indeed a hidden gem. Tucked away in a quiet residential area, it was still close to everything we needed. There was plenty of room to spread out in the living room and the bed was very comfortable. Had everything we needed for a short weekend visit.

Highly recommended!

Great location, quiet and peaceful house, comfy bed

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my daughter for a trip to Universal Studios. Location was perfect, 5 min. drive to Universal yet quiet and peaceful place to come back to after the craziness of a theme park. The house was comfy, perfect for 2 people. Plenty of parking. Lots of stairs but that was fine for us. The hostess was very organized and everything was as she said it would be. Highly recommend this rental!

Great location, comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My nephew and I stayed at this "gem" of a place for a few nights so that we could be close to Universal Studios and other Hollywood and LA attractions. The location was perfect. The place was small but very comfortable, clean, well-maintained, quiet and private. It provided us what we needed...a place to relax, watch a little TV, hop on our tablets, and lay our heads down in between visiting various attractions. The neighborhood felt very safe. Kathleen's Thai restaurant recommendation was spot on. We appreciated her quick and timely responses prior to our visit. We also appreciated that she "left us alone" to have our vacation. On the other hand, we also felt welcomed to call if we needed her for anything. The steps to her home was somewhat steep which was not a problem for us but may be for anyone that is not as ambulatory. We hope that we were good renters. Thanks Kathleen!

Peaceful, secluded, lovely respite from a busy world.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely guest house had plenty of space for the two of us during our weekend-get-away to the Pacific coast. The bed was comfortable, everything was clean, the temperatures were perfect night and day.

Kathleen is a generous, responsive host. She made available for our use: beach chairs, beach towels and a beach umbrella. Her recommendations for local dining were stellar. We'll stay here again. The whole place has a really nice feeling to it. Thank you again, Kathleen.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Kathleen's lovely guest apartment for nine days in July while we were in LA visiting our son who lives in Encino. The apartment has a beautiful view of the mountains; we loved the Hollywood Hills area. We drove a short way from the apartment to the Hollywood Reservoir. We walked the whole 3.5 or so mile paved path around the reservoir. The views of the Hollywood Sign were excellent. We also spent a day at Universal Studios which is just a few miles down the road from Kathleen's house. The apartment is very comfortable; we loved the full kitchen. We shopped at the nearby Ralph's; we ate all of our breakfasts & some of our lunches at the apartment. Kathleen is a lovely hostess. Her house really became our home away from home! We will definitely stay there again in the future. Thanks, Kathleen!
