The space

Los Angeles is known for its beautiful rustic pockets in the geographic heart of the city- Mt. Washington is one of them! This sunny, peaceful house sits at the top of a lush canyon in a park-like setting, along with views of the downtown city lights at night. The beautiful Self-Realization Fellowship gardens are a five-minute walk from the house, offering gorgeous meditation gardens and stunning views of downtown L.A. For cultural events, dining and shopping, the house is just a 10 minute drive to Disney Concert Hall and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in downtown L.A , or to Old Town Pasadena's Norton Simon Museum or shopping district, or to the hip Eagle Rock/Highland Park neighborhoods for great bars, restaurants, and street life. If you prefer not to drive, the Gold LIne Metro stops nearby.

All bedrooms are furnished with new mattresses, (one twin, one full, one queen) crisp linens, and choice of non-allergenic or down comforters and pillows. Additional (new) twin mattress available. Hardwood floors throughout the house. Wifi/Netlix/HuluPlus/DVD. Fully equiped kitchen, laundry room with full-size washer/ &dryer. Central air-conditioning and heat. Lovely afternoon and evening breezes from the canyon. Lots of bright windows and glass doors; every bedroom looks out to lush trees and canyon. A stunning setting, yet warm and cozy.

The house is great. It was perfect for us. We were 5. The terrace is beautiful and the canyon side location is just stunning. Mount Washington is a welcome escape from the heat and dust of the city. It's really easy to get into town too.... 10 minute walk to the metro gold line... or uber. We had a car too, and parking outside was always available. The house is well appointed, the kitchen is nice and there is a HUGE tv which we never turned on! Thoroughly recommend. Tara was a lovely host.

We spent a month and a half at Tara's house in Mount Washington and had a fantastic visit. Tara is a very welcoming, friendly host. When I arrived, I was surprised at how large the place is. The blue tiles in the kitchen are particularly attractive and all the decor in the house is very tasteful. The deck behind the house, which includes a comfortable hammock, is perfectly serene. The house is also fully stocked with anything you might possibly need during your trip. This is one of the most scenic Los Angeles neighborhoods, all the adjoining streets, hills and walking trails are worth exploring. It's a short 20 minute drive to Downtown or Pasadena.

Tara's house is a perfect, peaceful retreat nestled in the hills between downtown LA and Pasadena. The house is incredibly welcoming, furnished with classic pieces and modern amenities alike. Despite its small appearance, the house was way more than enough room for the two of us and probably more appropriate for 4. Eating breakfast out on the deck overlooking the hills was our favorite thing about the house. Those unfamiliar with Mt. Washington might find navigating the hilly streets a bit challenging, but to have this kind of serenity without sacrificing any accessibility to LA is well worth it. Coordinating with Tara was incredibly easy; she made sure our late arrival into LA wasn't an issue and did not hesitate to bring us beach towels for one of our day trips. Thank you, Tara!!

It's a peaceful setting for a nice, quiet getaway. Coffee every morning on the back deck was a great way to start the day! The neighborhood is safe and lovely. Close to downtown LA, but, because of the serene backdrop, you feel miles away.

Beautiful and quiet setting! We had a wonderful time. It was close to the city but the residential neighborhood felt remote. We had three adults, an infant and a toddler. Tara was very helpful, welcoming and responsive.
