The two highlights of this wonderful room would have to be the comfort of the bed and the view looking into the back yard fire pit movie theatre nestled in towering pines and oak trees. Without fail people say they've slept perfectly in this room.

The space

"I don't remember the last time I slept that well", is the comment I hear consistently from every guest who has ever stayed in this cozy quiet room. There is a queen sized bed with extremely comfortable mattress and three large windows overlooking our private backyard fire pit(URL HIDDEN)The room is equipped with an empty closet and dresser drawers, a desk, a ceiling fan, and a smart tv that also has direct tv. It's a great rental for business as well as pleasure for it's privacy and quiet.
The bedding and towels are plush. The newly remodeled bathroom will be stocked with shampoo, soap, and any other necessities, and is usually completely private since both the yurt and the guest bedroom are rarely booked at the same time, unless it's the same party of people.
The property contains a three bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, 1940's "tree house like" residence nestled at the bottom of famed Laurel Canyon like a bird sanctuary amid towering pines and oaks, yet you can walk two blocks for urban hip shopping and restaurants. Fryman Canyon hiking trail is also a five minute walk from the house. #Walkable walkable walkable.
Coffee, tea and other surprise snacks provided :)
The beautifully hand painted 220 square foot yurt/gym is set atop a concrete slab with electricity for temperature control and lighting. The inside looks a little like "I Dream of Jeannie's" bottle with cow hide rugs, and colorfully hand painted authentic Mongolian furniture. There is an extremely comfortable round king size bed, an infrared inversion table, recumbent stationary bike, CD player and CD's, Sonos speakers for streamed content, Direct TV on a small plasma, dresser, clothes rack, free weights, yoga props, rollers, balls, and massage tools (perfect place to have a home visit from a local masseuse :). The peak a boo roof called a "tono", can open to the stars or be slid closed for a clear view of the humming birds flitting from the roses to the wisteria just over head. It is roomier than it looks in my current amateur pics.

Guest access

Guests of the guest bedroom have access to the yurt/gym, the fridge in the kitchen, powder room, and a newly remodeled full guest bath room with tub and shower. The back yard fire pit/movie theatre can be booked for a negotiable fee before 10pm (schedule and weather permitting). Seats twelve. Popcorn, blankets, and streamed content provided.

Interaction with guests

When possible, I would prefer to hand off the keys in person, but privacy after that point can be accommodated despite the openness of the residence and grounds. I’m always available for any interaction or assistance desired.

Other things to note

We have a dog (Aussie shepherd) and a cat on the property (and an occasional visit from her 14 year old husky corgi brother). Despite frequent vacuuming, and a constant flow of air from the outside, both spices' dander is inside of our house. So it may not be wise to book here if you are highly allergic to cats or dogs, unless you stay in the yurt where they are not allowed.

I LOVED my time at Amy's house. The home is so lovely and peaceful. Amy is a very gracious and engaging host that is a delight to talk to. Every detail is taken care of and the home is even more beautiful than the pictures. I slept like a baby and regretted that I had to leave so soon. A special bonus was getting to interact with the sweet fur babies of the house. I can't recommend Amy's place enough. Awesome experience. Thank you Amy!

Lets start off with this is our first time using Airbnb. What a pleasure! If possible we would never stay in a hotel again. Just can't get any better-everything was perfect, from the minute we arrived. What a beautiful setting, candles, low lights- so we could see our way to our room-Beautiful. Just loved our Hostess and her husband. Loved their dog "Veda". What a great dog, well behaved and of course the sweet cat "Suki". Continental breakfast, serve yourself, so thoughtful- coffee every morning. Thank you Amy for a wonderful experience.

Amy was an incredible host. Every interaction with her – from scheduling arrival to having a drink on her lovely patio and talking about nearby hiking options – was delightful. Her house is beautiful and the room is comfortable. As advertised, it's quiet, comfortable, and hip! (Not advertised but certainly appreciated were a sweet cat and cute puppy...) We felt very comfortable and at home, and had a lovely weekend. I would look forward to staying here again next time I'm in LA!

Amy is an amazing host. She is super friendly, kind and helpful. She is so kind that she left the entire house to ourselves for two days. The stay was everything we expected it to be and more. The house is well designed and furnished with great decor/styling, very cozy with amazing patios and yards filled with trees and water fountains. It is the one of the most calming ambiances we have experienced. I can't remember the last time I slept so well. We're glad we picked Amy for this journey - this was a last minute call/reservation. We would definitely suggest this to someone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of LA but be within a reasonable distance to everything it has to offer. Great places/restaurants within walking distance.

WOW! First and foremost Amy is the most delightful, warm and exceptional host. She greeted with fresh coffee and Midwestern pastries! This is her home but is nothing short of a retreat center with stunning landscaping, and gorgeousness outdoor and indoor spaces, and every corner is bursting with creative decor. We were welcome to use the outdoor movie projector, fire pit, dining area and a home gym in the yurt! Amy had coffee and breakfast out every morning. She directed us to the best local restaurants and local hiking etc. She made us feel as if we were honored guests. Our vacation was touched with her special precense and her calming home. The room feels like a tree house and the morning was filled with sun, foliage and bird song. Six stars!

Wow! Amy was an incredible host! One of the best AirBnb stays I had! And the house was even better than in the photos (something that never happens!)... Can't recommend more...

I love the experiences I've had with Air BnB in London and Boston and Seattle as I've traveled for work in the theatre. I'm an actress, former birth doula, pet lover and goof ball. Sharing my woodsy urban hideaway with new people is one of my favorite things to do, so I'm thrilled I can now host in my own home.
