The Neighborhood

West Hollywood is truly one of LAs greatest neighborhoods. With award-winning dining and endless boutique shopping, there is plenty to keep you entertained just off of Melrose Ave.

Enjoying shopping on the exclusive Melrose Avenue, where you will find Alexander McQueen, Diane von Furstberg, Joe’s Jeans, Chole, Isabel Marant, Marc Jacobs, Theory, Paul Smith, Caroline Herrera, Herve Leger, Monique Lhuillier, Fred Segal and many, more stores. Additional shopping nearby at The Grove, Beverly Center, Beverly Connection, each less than a 10 minute drive or 20 minute walk.

Many Farmers Markets and Flea Markets to frequent. Thursday night market on Sunset, the Saturday market at the Grove and the Sunday markets on Melrose Avenue and Melrose Trading Post.

Fabulous Dining at hotspots such as: Ink, Ago, Taste, Lucques, Fig & Olive, Mari Vanna LA, Nobu, Koi, STK, Comme Ca, Red O, Barton G, and Connie & Ted’s, all of which are within a short distance.

Sweet Lady Jane and Duff Cake Mix are also just around the corner. Directly across the street you will find Crossroads where you are likely to see paparazzi standing outside waiting to snap a photo of one of the many regular celebrity clientele.

Juice or Coffee? Take a short stroll to LA juice for a fresh squeezed juice or continue along Melrose Avenue where you'll find delicious coffee & lunch at Urth Café or Alfred’s.

There are many parks in the neighborhood such as King’s Road Park and West Hollywood Park. For the fitness minded folks, you will be excited to hear of the variety of studios nearby including: Winsor Pilates, Xtend Barre, Cycle House, and many others.

If you decide to leave the vicinity, you'll be happy to hear you are only a short distance to Santa Monica, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Central LA. About 25 minutes to downtown and the valleys.

Getting around

Let’s face it, LA doesn’t have the greatest public transit system. Luckily, this property is situated within a short walk to Bus 10/48, with an easy connection to the BUS 90/91 in Hollywood. Theses bus routes, easily connect you to most subways around the city.

Other Things to Note

A few home truths to note....

This is a studio. It’s most comfortable for 1-2 guests, but it can accommodate up to 4 guests.

Its a studio, and aprox 400 square feet. Though well equipped, it is a small space.

There is no parking onsite. Street parking only. This property is on the border of west hollywood, and we have 1 parking permit available for your use issued by the city of West Hollywood. We ask that you please review the parking signs to ensure you are parking in the appropriate zone specific this permit. Otherwise, you will need to find street parking on the other side of Melrose ave. This means parking will be about 1-3 blocks away, across the main street

This home is nestled off a busy street. Though thats great for walking everywhere, there may be a little ambient noise from the main road. When inside the home, it is very rare to hear any outdoor road noise.

These are just a few items to note. We hope transparency will make your stay an enjoyable one-- thats our goal!

My wife and I stayed here for a couple days recently. What a great place for an unbelievable price. The location is perfect, walking distance to a lot of places. Had everything we needed for our stay. Highly recommend for 2 people. No expensive Hotel needed. Thank you!

Perfect location for visiting L.A.

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice little house in the middle of the city. For two persons it is perfect. The bed for the other two persons lacks a bit in comfort.

Adorable and convenient.

  • 4 of 5

This guest house was just the right size for the two of us. It's located just behind Duff's Cakemix shop where you design your own cake. Safe neighborhood. Secured gate to enter plus good locks on the guest house. Parking was interesting during the day. Usually had to pay a meter if coming back earlier then 5pm. Then moving to the spot right out front of the rental. I never had to park far though. Usually within the same block. The place was pretty clean. A few suggestions.....1)clean spiderwebs above kitchen cabinets where vent is. 2) clean drawers and cabinets every once is a while. They were not bad. I am a clean freak and one of those people that always washes all dishes before using anything.

There is only Net Flix. I couldn't get any remote to turn on any cable. Who really needs to watch TV though while on vacation?

If no renters in the big house, access to the driveway gate would make life easier. But I understand stand last minute renters of the big house could cause confusion.

This guest house is in a perfect area as far as I'm concerned. Plenty of shopping, entertainment and food. Grocery is a drive away but not that big of deal.

Kitchen had everything needed except a strainer. I bought a new non stick frying pan and left it there. They had two but eggs stuck even with butter. They failed to state they have a blender. I brought my own travel one due to my diet. Waster luggage space. I should have called.

I would rent this again for sure.

A great hotel alternative!

  • 5 of 5

This studio guest house was a perfect alternative to a hotel room. It was very clean, has a well-equipped kitchen, roomy bathroom, comfortable bed. The front house did not have renters, so my week-long stay was very quiet. There are plenty of great restaurants and coffee houses you can walk to. My only issues were that the street parking was a little tricky over the weekend, during the day only; the tv is hooked up to Netflix only; and I thought communication with the rental company should have been better. With that said, I would stay here again.

Extremely cute and cozy nest in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. It is perfect for two people. It could fit another person or two if you are close to them with no issues. The neighborhood felt safe and there is a great vegetarian place across the street. The food isn't boring though so dont get hung up on that. It is deceiving from the outside but it attracts celebrity patrons so if you dont trust me, trust them.

The parking is not as intimidating as it may sound. There is a two hour period once a week where you have to move your car, but otherwise, there is usually parking within a block or so (both nights we parked right in front of this property).

Overall, I would say you will be really happy with this location should you choose to book it. Thanks for having us!

Quiet, comfortable and in a great neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable, in the best location - very central. Very secluded, private and quiet. Has everything you need. Highly recommend it!

Very close to the Grove/ Farmers Market, great shopping and a short drive to the Pantages Theater in Hollywood, if you are seeing a show.
