Perched atop a hill in Highland Park our beautifully-restored 1920s Craftsman bungalow is surrounded by gorgeous views.
Enjoy colorful rooms, stellar sunsets from multiple decks, a large enclosed backyard, and produce from an organic garden.

The space

You will have use of the entire lovely home. Sleep in our cozy bedroom on a queen sized bed and awake to the sounds of birds singing.

The second bedroom is also the baby's room and has an aero queen sized mattress. It is very firm and comfortable, the best of its kind. there is also a crib for an infant and many infant amenities (changing station, noise cancelation machine, toys)

In the morning have breakfast on the front deck overlooking palm trees and purple jacaranda; at dusk sip on a cocktail while marveling at the colorful California sunsets. Enjoy a private backyard with a large deck (with covered pergola and sofa), and an organic garden whose produce is at your disposal when in season. Grill your dinner and dine al fresco under playful outdoor lighting. The outdoor speakers will help elevate the mood. There is central air and heat.

Ample street parking available.

Guest access

We have a full kitchen at your disposal, a newly remodeled clean bathroom and full sized washer and dryer in the basement.

There is a second bedroom that is the baby's room. If needed we can remove the crib and set up an air mattress to accommodate additional guests. we have all the sheets and comforters ready to go--it's a really firm queen mattress.

Interaction with guests

We will not see you during your stay, however there will be a dear friend stopping by to take care of the plants/garden and look after our kitty. We will give you a schedule of when you can expect them to stop by.

Other things to note

We have a kitty who will be staying here with you. As listed in the comments section, one person had trouble with the cat. Full disclosure--the cat can use a bit of attention from time to time. Maddy loves to come in and out of the kitty door and sometimes meows for a little love. If she does, it is a few times only. She's really not needy--she IS a cat after all :) It needs to be noted that it has been only one person who had an issue with the cat--everyone else liked cats and actually enjoyed her presence. makes it homey, no?

our dog will be staying elsewhere. the house will be professionally cleaned before your arrival.

Misty and Greg´s house was much better than the pictures!! Their home is spotless, bright, cozy and beautifully furnished. My family felt right at home. We made fresh lemonade with Misty´s garden lemons and the tomatoes!!!, best tasting tomatoes we have ever had!!! The kitchen was fully stacked and the home entertainment system great. Maddy the cat was just Maddy, living her own life until she decided to let us in, she never bothered us and at the end she did allow us to interact with her at her own pace. She only needed fresh water and food. We had no problem whatsoever with parking spaces as there always were free spaces in the street close to the house. The main room was a little bright but we solved the problem with a blanket. Quiet and safe neighborhood. We never met Misty but communication via messages was fluent, we did meet her friend Louise who welcomed us very nicely. We went hiking several times at a nearby park. Bottom line; a great place to stay in LA.

The house was very pleasant, nice view and vibe. The garden is a nice addition for a relaxing atmosphere. However I found it difficult to get any quality rest because the cat expected to sleep with me and was very verbal late night and early morning even with leaving the window open. It was also especially bright because the windows have no covers. A dog also resides in the home and caused some allergy problems. Misty did have someone come over immediately upon learning of my reaction. He cleaned and it made it better but I still had to move to the extra room. Overall the experience was good.

My friends and I had an amazing stay in Misty's beautiful home. Her place is beautiful, spacious, clean and has a relaxing vibe which was welcomed after a busy day in LA. But I would say the highlight of this house is her back yard! We left the doors and windows open and it felt like we were living outside. There was always a gentle breeze wafting in the scents of Misty's beautiful garden. Oh and the garden is lovely! Fresh tomatoes and lemons that Misty shared with us! The beds were beautiful, the shower was fantastic, the kitchen was stocked with any supplies we needed, and they had an awesome TV! All in all I would stay in Misty's house again in a heart beat!!! Thank you for an amazing vacation! :)

An absolutely beautiful space to stay. In fact, I've stayed in several Airbnb places in Los Angeles area, and Misty's place is by far the nicest! The pictures capture the whimsy, design, and comfort of Misty's place. There several areas to lounge and relax. We really enjoyed all the outdoor space that the decks offered. Misty provided ample kitchen amenities and even had chocolates waiting for us when we arrived. We The location is very easy to find and parking is not a problem. Even though our stay was around the 4th of July, the neighbors were respectful of noise level and actually added a festive vibe to our stay. Communication with Misty is excellent and was easy to work with when we thought we would have a later check out time. Highly recommend this gem if staying in Los Angeles.

What an amazing house! My folks were visiting LA and I needed to find a place for them (my apartment was FULL) and this place hit the spot. Misty and Greg were delightful and their home is just wonderful. Very clean and VERY comfy. Amazing neighborhood with gorgeous views. The outdoor space is spectacular. They have 3 decks! And they encouraged us to raid their veritable cornucopia of a vegetable garden. My mom and I picked lemons from their lemon tree and made fresh lemonade. We haven't done that in 20 years. They had 8 different varietals of heirloom tomatoes. We made one heck of an organic salad. Fantastic location. Fantastic place. Great energy. We had an incredible time. Two thumbs waaaay up.
