The suite is dramatically situated in a historic 1910 Hollywood bungalow. Tucked away from the street and perched on a small hill among the tree tops, this exquisite space is nestled between the Hollywood Sign and the Griffith Park Observatory. It's just a few blocks from the hiking trails of Griffith Park in one direction and cafes, a supermarket, and shops in another. This Intimate and charming space offers a unique blend of privacy, nature, and accessibility.

The space

This charming 480 square foot suite includes a porch front entrance and is dramatically situated in a historic 1910 Hollywood bungalow. The bungalow was originally built as a hunting lodge by silent screen star Francis X. Bushman, most noted for his role in the original "Ben Hur”. Nestled between the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Park Observatory, you may witness a deer, or two, while sitting on the front porch drinking your morning cup of coffee. We are surrounded by two-thirds of an acre which offers unheard of privacy in Hollywood, and we are a mere five minute walk from a number of bustling local businesses, including coffee shops, a grocery store, a number of popular restaurants, and a dry cleaners.

The suite has a large bedroom/living area complete with a queen-sized bed and sofa. It is warm and inviting with hardwood floors, wood blinds and a cove ceiling. There is a separate kitchenette with a kitchen table and chairs, as well as a sink, small refrigerator, a microwave/convection oven combo, a toaster, coffee maker and other amenities. Both the bedroom and kitchenette have beautiful french windows and doors to allow for natural light, or you can pull the blinds for complete privacy.

We also have ample off-street parking available for our guests.

Guest access

Beautiful wooden bungalow, lovely furnished and equipped with everything you need, including perfect high bandwidth internet / WiFi and HD cable TV (for those of you who are interested in tech facts ;)). The place is perfectly clean and Cherie is a superior host, being in reach whenever you need and simultaneously giving you complete privacy if you want. Thanks and hopefully we're able to come back.

There's not much more to say than what has already been stated by the numerous previous reviewers of this beautiful spot. But I'll reiterate what has been said before. The location is ideal for a stay in LA: in Hollywood, near the Greek Theater, the Hollywood Bowl, Griffin Park, and excellent shopping and restaurants. We lived in LA for 16 years and discovered places we'd not seen or even heard of before. Cherie is a terrific hostess who was both pleasantly connected to our needs but gave us privacy at the same time. The studio is located in a beautiful brown shingle home that reminded us more of the Bay Area houses of Bernard Maybeck than your typical LA house. It was spotless and comfortable, filled with books and surrounded by trees. Parking is within the compound and entirely secure. Just a few blocks away was a Gelson's supermarket with an excellent deli and Wolfgang Puck pizza counter. The only downside, and this applies to all of LA, is the traffic. Luckily, you could spend all of your time in LA on foot (I didn't think I could ever say that about LA) because of the convenient location to famous locations and restaurants. We hope to be able to return again in the future. Thanks Cherie!

This Bungalow is so lovely- beyond what we could have expected. It's a beautiful sanctuary located a couple of blocks from hiking on one side and great shops and restaurants on another. The cottage is charming and immaculate. There is so much attention to detail from the great books on the history of the area to the sweet garden below the porch. Cherie was wonderfully responsive in every way. Coming back to this idyllic spot made our stay in LA. We will return whenever we can. Truly special.

Beautiful property in a nice neighborhood, quiet and perfect for relaxing. Walking distance to restaurants and a gourmet grocery. Cherie was an excellent host, close if needed but not intrusive.

It's a quiet, secluded spot in walking distance to restaurants, grocery, and small businesses in a neighborhood setting with private parking. Cherie is always ready to make the stay pleasant and comfortable.

It's simple,come here if you want relaxation in a city of madness. Cherie contact is second to none and you'll want for nothing.Nice village just down the road too with a superb grocery store and bars and restaurants. Can I stay please?

I'm a freelance illustrator and my husband is as well. We live and work from our home. We are very creative and always have multiple projects under foot. We have a fondness for animals, I'm passionate about food, and we both love movies.

We are very quiet and respectful of other people's privacy, and would like the same in return. But, if any issues should arise we are always available and eager to help. My husband is a master builder and handyman, which could come in quite handy as a host.
