Cottage in Los Angeles
Private Modern Guesthouse near Mulholland Drive
A free standing 500 sq/ft 1 bedroom rustic Spanish split level guest house with private entrance, manicured terraced landscaping and a spacious light filled interior with all the modern amenities. The open plan living space contains a fully equipped efficiency kitchen with chef's range, stainless steel under-counter refrigerator, marble countertops, imported tile, and a contemporary living area with convertible sleeping sofa for additional accommodation, eating/working island, and entertainment center containing 33" tv with DirecTV, Netflix, and high speed wifi. The lower split level contains a custom tiled bathroom with heated floors, large shower, and a floor to ceiling mirror. A separate bedroom area with large closet and deluxe queen size mattress provides additional comfort and privacy from the main living area. The guest house has central heating and air conditioning for desired temperature comfort. Fresh towels, linen and bedding is provided, and new and vintage furnishings, original artwork, books and objects have been selected by the architect/owner for guest's enjoyment. Non metered City street parking is almost always available directly in front of the guest house. Complimentary Peet's coffee, a selection of teas, and bottled filtered and mineral water are provided by the host for guest's enjoyment. Guests have direct access to the guest house through the front garden gate and up a small flight of stairs. Host will provide guests with keys upon arrival. Guests enter and exit the guest house through a private entrance. Flanking the staircase is a small outdoor area with seating for guest's private use. After initial meeting and key exchange with host, the guest house is all yours for your enjoyment. Hosts live in the main house behind the guest house and you are more than welcome to say hello or to contact us if you have any questions or need anything for your stay. Laurel Canyon offers dynamic city life and bohemian rural charm, just a short drive from art institutions, studios, restaurants, and nightlife. Get out in the fresh air on Hollywood Hills hiking trails and enjoy panoramic views of the entire city. A local bus stop is just around the corner, but this being LA, a car is recommended. Uber and Lyft are popular taxi alternatives and are available at the guest house within minutes. While we are confident you'll find staying at our accommodations relaxing and utterly enjoyable, we must confess this is not a tucked-away bucolic country cottage, but a private contemporary urban experience situated between LA's dynamic city life and its bohemian rural charms on Laurel Canyon Blvd. Although we constructed the guest cottage with double thick insulated walls and double pained windows to mediate exterior temperature and noise, the cottage faces the boulevard and intermittent traffic noise might be of concern to some sound sensitive guests.
