Our charming 1920's 2 bedroom guest cottage with private entry awaits in Eagle Rock: Los Angeles' Hometown. The indoor & outdoor space balanced by vintage kitchen that leads to private yard, patio & garden is surrounded by lush plants. This 1000 square foot home is a perfect spot for a family, a central tourist homebase, a romantic couples retreat or for those requiring a peaceful setting to work.
If you're looking for your own spacious, private garden the setup is ideal. The outdoor space is slightly larger than the guest house. The patio is bordered by lights on a dimmer, which makes for great ambience after sunset. Large fruit trees, grass and potted plants/herbs surround the outdoor space. The patio is covered with a weathered pergola draped with well trimmed grape vines which offers a canopy of shade in the warmer months. Enjoy afternoon naps on a blanket tucked under the apple tree.
The king bed is super comfy, firm but supple with a temperpedic top layer. The kitchen includes appliances, quality cookware, dishware, toaster, complimentary small batch coffee and a variety of teas along with essentials like olive oil, sea salt and pepper. And if you need additional cooking tools we're well stocked next door and happy to share! Flatscreen HDTV with Apple TV (supports netflix, amazon, HBO, PBS etc.). Modern high capacity washer and dryer reserved exclusively for guests on the backside of the building.
We provide clean towels, linens, soaps, a coffee press, an electric water kettle, and a small outdoor fire pit and wood for you to use. We also offer hi-speed wifi.
This home is not lived in by somebody else. It's a free standing building with no shared walls.
Traveling with children? We have a pack n play, high chair and some toys/books you are welcome to use. We also have a spare mattress.
The rental bungalow is in the rear of an over-sized lot down the driveway from the main house. It is quiet and private. There is off-street parking available in addition to the ample free street parking. Just pull all the way down the long driveway and park in the back.
Guests have their own private entrance from the back of the lot. The outdoor space is also for guest use only (not shared).
We live in the front house with our two young kids but will give you as much privacy as you desire. We enjoy meeting new people and making them feel at home but we are also totally cool with giving our guests all the privacy they need.
Please let us know if you are sensitive to the sounds of children playing during the day and we will remind our kids not to bounce on our trampoline in the shared parking area during your stay. Otherwise, you may hear the happy sounds of giggling children from inside your private gated back yard.
