Guesthouse in West Hollywood
Private, Designer Guesthouse with Rose Garden
Discover a serene, private corner of Los Angeles in this boutique, designer cottage with a secluded patio and European-style kitchen. Dine al fresco on the wooden patio under cover of the night sky and surrounded by the lights of the city. This fully detached 1 bedroom-1 bathroom Craftsman guesthouse is the perfect place to stay while in Los Angeles. Centrally located in West Hollywood, one of the safest and most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods in the city, you're only minutes away from the best of what LA has to offer. Some of the hottest restaurants, bars and clubs are within walking distance. First class amenities in this professionally decorated unit include granite counters, hardwood floors, crown molding, recessed lighting and brand new stainless steel appliances. Relax on your own private deck or hit the street for a night on the town. It's the best of both worlds. ABOUT THE GUESTHOUSE: This stylish house is quietly nestled off the street by a rose garden. It is fully detached --no neighbors or shared walls--and gets great natural light. It is one of two guesthouses behind the main house on the property, in which I live. I always respect everyone's privacy, though should you need something or have a question, I'm not far away. The bedroom has a brand new, comfortable queen bed with high quality linens. The large closet has built-in drawers, wooden hangers, a rack for your suitcase and a hamper to make laundry day easy. There's an iron and ironing board in there for your convenience, as well. The French doors open up onto the deck, perfect for dining alfresco. Save some money by cooking at home in the fully appointed kitchen, which includes a dishwasher, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, toaster, blender, mixer and chef's knifes. The black and white "Old Hollywood" style bathroom is tiled floor to ceiling and has a beautiful shower/tub with satin nickel fixtures, plenty of hot water and great water pressure. Yes, there's a hair-dryer in there for you, too. No need for trips to the laundromat, there’s a washer and dryer right in the unit. Other features include recessed lights on dimmers throughout, a furnace and an air conditioning unit, a 24" flat screen HD tv with basic cable, an internet connected Blu-Ray DVD player and high speed wifi. We also try to be green, so we use energy efficient appliances and recycle what materials we can. ABOUT TRANSPORTATION AND/OR PARKING: A majority of our guests use Uber or Lyft to get around. They are very inexpensive here in LA, and typically only a few minutes away at any given moment. If you'll be renting a car, we provide a hangtag for street parking here in the restricted parking neighborhood. While there is no dedicated parking spot, there's often a space out front or within one block in any direction. We'll tell you the best/easiest places to look once you arrive. ABOUT THE LOCATION: West Hollywood is located between Beverly Hills and Hollywood. It is a prime location for anyone visiting LA and central to just about everything. Attractions nearby include theme parks (Universal Studios, Disneyland, Magic Mountain, etc), live entertainment (Hollywood Bowl, Pantages, Laugh Factory, etc), tourist destinations (The Hollywood Sign, Kodak Theatre, Hollywood Walk of Fame, The Sunset Strip, etc), outdoor activities (Santa Monica Beach, Hiking the canyons, Malibu, etc), world class shopping (Rodeo Dr, Melrose, The Grove/Farmer’s Market, etc) and so much more. All the major studios are within a 10 mile radius. LAX airport is 13 miles to the south, Burbank airport is 9 miles north. UCLA and AFI are close by, as are Cedars-Sinai Hospital and the Pacific Design Center. ABOUT OUR GUESTS: Please make sure your Airbnb profile is complete. When sending a message or inquiry, please tell us something about yourself and the nature of your visit. Also, we can make more relevant suggestions or bring up certain LA highlights if we know a little about the purpose of your trip. *For the assistants, agents, reps and/or friends who would like to book the cottage on behalf of someone else, we appreciate and understand what you're doing, but we can only accept bookings from the profile of the person that will be staying in the cottage. We thank you for your consideration. Restaurants, shopping, live entertainment, Hollywood nightlife, it’s all here. Please check out the photos, they really speak for themselves and show you what you can look forward to while here in LA. It’s an amazing space in an awesome location that really is one-of-a-kind. Thanks for visiting. There's a rose garden right outside the front door. The private back patio is all yours. I always respect the privacy of my guests. I live in the main/front house on the property, so I'm never far if there's an issue or you simply have a question about something. Airbnb message tends to be the preferred method of communicating by guests in the past, and that certainly works well for me! West Hollywood is one of the most sought-after locations to stay while in town. The guest house is centrally located, very safe, and well maintained. Nearby is access to some of the city's most renowned spots. Traditionally, transportation by car is the most convenient method of getting around in Los Angeles. Uber and Lyft are about 30% the cost of taxis, so most guests simply use those shared ride services. We have a major bus stop 5 blocks away at Santa Monica Blvd and Fairfax, so public transportation is also an option. I've included menus for some favorite local food delivery places in the binder by the front door. Other food delivery options include the apps GrubHub, Eat24 and Postmates, and online at Yummy. Feel free to ask about recommendations, too. Also, there are starter amounts of laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, toilet paper and a few coffee pods. To our international guests: please ensure that you'll have a way to communicate once you land in the US (through text, Airbnb messenger or phone call). That way, you can contact me if your plans change, if there's a significant delay, or if you just need to reach me (of if I need to reach you). Thanks in advance. West Hollywood is one of the most sought-after locations to stay while in town. This home is centrally located, very safe and well maintained. Nearby is access to some of the city's most renowned spots.

Your guide to Los Angeles


Los Angeles is the ultimate insider's city, as first-time visitors quickly discover. The sprawl of strip malls and apartment buildings can seem anonymous and daunting until you consult friends or online guides who can direct you to the city’s electric cultural and artistic life. Los Angeles’s racial and ethnic diversity make it one of the most exciting culinary destinations in America, whether your appetite leads you to Korean, regional Mexican, or Persian food. One day may bring you to Venice Beach or the Santa Monica Pier for a stroll, and the next day on a strenuous hike in Topanga Canyon. Downtown Los Angeles’s art museums attract global attention for their forward-thinking collections. You can also spend several days walking — yes, walking — around Silver Lake or Beverly Hills, dipping into boutiques and stopping at cafes.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Los Angeles

Idyllic weather is one of the reasons Los Angeles became the film industry capital, and you can count on heat and sun for most of the year when you’re on vacation here. There’s a reason so many Angelenos wear sunglasses and carry water bottles.

After a hazy month of June (the locals call it “June Gloom”), LA’s hot season lasts between July and late September, when the average daytime temperatures are in the 80s Fahrenheit. Spring and fall deliver weather that is slightly cooler, but still pleasant enough for short sleeves and light clothing. December through February is the rainy season, when the lows can dip into the 40s. Your consolation is seeing the city’s gold hills turn bright green.

Top things to do in Los Angeles

Griffith Park

Los Angeles’s biggest park is more of a district, with more than 4,000 acres of trails, attractions, and serene picnic spots. You can wander around the famous Griffith Observatory, the backdrop to dozens of famous movie scenes, or bring your children to the historic Merry-Go-Round carousel. The western edge of the park includes several steep trails climbing to the Hollywood Sign.

Hollywood Walk of Fame

You’re more likely to see a celebrity at some vegan cafe in Silver Lake than here, but the frayed glamour of Hollywood and the Sunset Strip still exerts its charm. Check the schedule to see if the iconic TCL Chinese Theatre is offering tours and screenings, or wander along Hollywood Boulevard, looking down to see whose famous handprints are pressed into the concrete.

The Getty Center

Half of the reason people take the tram up to the Getty is for the museum’s art collections, which favor Greek and Roman statues and European paintings from the medieval era through the 19th century. The other is the setting: You can spend an hour or two meandering through the cultivated gardens, admiring a landscape that stretches to every horizon.
