Please thoroughly read this entire listing. We're a small operation & expect our guests to treat this listing like our home. Maybe this place isn't a fit for you. It's good to know ahead of time. So please read :)
Our bright, sunny bungalow is newly renovated, but purposefully retains some historic 1930s charm...like the remains of an icebox in the kitchen, faux fireplace, & an original built-in vanity in the bathroom!
Located on the border of Highland Park & Mount Washington, it's walking distance from markets, lots of restaurants, bars, & Gold Line Metro Rail. We sit near the crest of a hill facing the Arroyo Seco. Our lot is small, but very private. You get a treetop view from the entry & the master bedroom. All you'll see is hills, rooftops, & backyard gardens. You're not going to hear Los Angeles' infamous freeways, but this isn't the quietest neighborhood. Being at the top of a hill gives full access to all the neighborhood sounds (very light sleepers beware!) a neighbor's rooster with a full moon, another neighbor's dog, & the local flock of parrots during the days if you're lucky.
If you prefer to stay plugged into the modern world, we've got a high speed wireless internet.
Guests have the bungalow & a small patio to themselves. If you will have a car let us know. You can have the option of the driveway or street parking. (No street cleaning on our street, so no unexpected parking tickets!)
Interaction with guests
We'll meet you personally at check in, see you settled & will always available by text or email. We live on the property, but the Bungalow has a private walkway along side the main house. It is fully detached & separated by the private patio.
