About Sharlotte Blake

I am originally from the East Coast via Philadelphia & New York and settled in Los Angeles in 1999. I met my husband, originally from LA, in Los Angeles and we have a young son. I have worked in Entertainment for much of my adult life in both Music and Film. I also love design and real estate and owning Vacation Rentals has been a wonderful experience for me.

Why Sharlotte Blake chose Central LA

We love the neighborhood of Hancock Park and always wanted to live there. We bought the home in 2004 and have been lovingly restoring it to it's 1927 grandeur ever since. Once we had a child of our own, we realized how much nicer it is to have a 'house' when we travel so we decided to renovate our guest house so we could share it with people like yourselves for your vacation or business stays in our beautiful city.

What makes this house unique

You will love the contemporary feel of our guest house. You will feel like you are staying in the modern luxury of a high end hotel like the W or the Mondrian but without the cost, or the noise. The back yard you walk through to get to your house gives you a feeling of being away in a beautiful setting and you will forget you are actually in the heart of the city. It's the best of all worlds, quiet and restful but near all the attractions LA has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a lovely stay at your place and thoroughly enjoyed our time in LA. The location was just perfect for our needs and the accommodation was beautiful and very very comfortable. We will definitely look you up again next time we are in LA.

Great cottage in a great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sharlotte's cottage for over two weeks and loved it. The neighborhood is safe, beautiful and historic. We felt very comfortable and Charlotte was a great host. Location is close to Hollywood and Beverly Hills and everything we wanted to see. We would come back again in a heartbeat.

Peaceful stay. Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to be right next to the action in Hollywood, look no further. This wonderful guest house has it all. We were 2 adults and one 17 year old girl. The loft was a perfect getaway for our daughter, with its own bathroom / shower. The downstairs provided clean, modern furnishings with a very comfortable sofa set to unwind from the miles of walking during the day. Situated only 3-4 minutes away from the core of Hollywood (walk of Fame, Dolby Theatre, etc), we couldn't have asked for a better location. While we only enjoyed our coffee in the kitchen, there were all the amenities available to cook all of your meals in this house. The memory foam bed was very comfortable and the AC and fans kept us nice and cool during the evening. Sharlotte was a great hostess and went above and beyond to take care of us, always a quick phone call away for any questions, and even stayed late to check us in after our incoming flight was delayed. We would definitely stay here again.

perfect spot for a small family

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It's in an ideal, central location on a gorgeous, quiet street. The small upstairs is a mini-paradise for kids -- they have their own sweet play area, bathroom, and bedroom. And though it's on a separate floor from the master bedroom, the house is small enough that we easily heard our young son when he called out in the night. The shared, enclosed side yard with kid playscape and room to run was also a great bonus. Sharlotte was was very helpful and a stellar communicator. We highly recommend the house!

Convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Two adults in town for business: Convenient location to all key areas of Los Angeles. Clean, quiet & safe guest house. Sharlotte was super helpful in explaining everything we needed to know at check-in. Just be aware if you have someone other than kids staying in the loft, it can be a little small and 'closed in'. I had read the comments before-hand so I knew my 5-7" height may be an issue - it was fine for just a few nights but I wouldn't have wanted to stay in the loft for a longer visit. Loft is definitely best left to the kiddos! Master had plenty of room for my traveling companion! Would stay there again.

Location! You can enjoy all that LA and Hollywood have to offer minutes away and come 'home' to the quiet and exclusive Hancock Park neighborhood to refresh and get a good nights sleep before another event filled day!

Hancock Park is one of the oldest and most exclusive neighborhoods of Los Angeles. We are centrally located between the San Fernando Valley and the Beach. Only 6 miles from the Film Studios in Burbank (Warner Brothers & Universal) and 10 miles to the beach and the airport in the other direction. We are right around the corner from Paramount Studios as well as CBS Studios. As you drive around our area you will be reminded of your location as the Holllywood sign in the hills sits above you to the North.

Located just South of the heart of Hollywood, Hancock Park boasts large homes and estates established in the 1920's & 1930's. Formerly home to such luminaries as Walt Disney, the Warner Brothers, Nat King Cole, Francis Ford Coppola and William Randolph Hearst. Many celebrities and luminaries in the film & TV industry currently reside in Hancock Park in it's stately mansions on quiet tree lined streets. Hancock Park is also home to many Foreign consulates. Occasionally our quiet neighborhood does get a bit of excitement when President Obama comes to visit the homes of TV Producer John Wells, Film Producer & Will Smith's partner, James Lassiter, or the home of Melanie Griffith & Antonio Banderas. Prince William & his wife Kate were also hosted recently at the UK Consulate General's home in the neighborhood. The beautiful homes and quiet streets of our neighborhood provide a fantastic setting for a romantic evening walk or your daily morning jog.

Bordering Hancock Park on the East and a short walk from our home is the quaint Larchmont Village. A 'local' spot for a fabulous Sunday Farmer's market, many restaurants and great coffee shops & ice cream shops as well as some wonderful local specialty shops.

You are only 2 miles from the Heart of Hollywood. See the sights on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, stop by Grauman's Chinese Theatre to see the handprints of the star's, The Wax Museum and Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum are always great fun as well.

For shopping and the occasional celebrity spotting check out The Grove at Farmers Market, only 1.5 miles away. Next to the Grove is Pan Pacific Park where you can run, relax, and picnic. There are several playgrounds for the kids, and many fields for soccer, baseball & more. The Original Farmer's Market, established in 1934 is nearby at 3rd & Fairfax. It has both fresh produce every day as well as great restaurants of all types, from Parisian crepes to Mexican tacos, to Indonesian fare, Brazilian dishes and more. You can also buy fresh fish, meat and produce to bring home and cook on your own grill! The whole family can find something they like with the variety at this outdoor market.

A morning hike at nearby Runyan Canyon is a must for the vacationer as is a scenic drive on Mullholland Drive. Lookout points along the drive will give you amazing views you've only seen in the movies of both Los Angeles and 'the Valley'. Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Six Flags at Magic Mountain are all within a 45 minute drive. Universal Studios City Walk & Theme Park are a mere 15 minutes away. You can even take the subway there from Hollywood!

For fine dining nearby Mario Battali's Osteria Mozza is within walking distance as are other great restaurants for French, Italian and Asian fare. If you are interested in sporting events, theater, concerts or other live music events, we are located within 5-15 minutes from the Staples Center & Nokia theatre, Dodger's stadium, the world famous Sunset Strip, the Kodak Theater (home to the Oscar's), the Pantages Theatre, the Wiltern, the El Rey, the Hollywood Palladium and many many more. Due to our location at the bottom of the hill, when outside in the evening you can often hear the music wafting down the hill from the Hollywood Bowl or glimpse fireworks displays on special occasions from The Grove. The Wilshire Country Club's 4th of July fireworks display is always a treat to watch from the front yard.

We are equidistant from the Bob Hope airport in Burbank and LAX International airport. We are about 10 miles from horseback riding at Griffith Park and 10 miles to theBeaches in the other direction.

Explore the 'non-Hollywood' part of LA too nearby and treat yourself to the rich traditions and cuisines in nearby Thai town, Korea Town, China Town & Little Tokyo.

Los Angeles also boasts a thriving art and cultural community and we are nearby the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art as well as the Geffen at MOCA, the Disney Center, The LA Museum of Natural History, the LA Tar Pits & Paige Museum and the Los Angeles Zoo.

You can't beat our location to explore all LA has to offer without spending your day in the car. We are in the center of it all!
