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.
"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.
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.
We reside and work on the property in this residential neighborhood. Please no parties, or loud behavior. There are many comfortable smoking areas outside, but none inside. We appreciate you storing food in our fridge rather than the bedroom. Communication about use of the kitchen, and kindness to our pets would be greatly appreciated. Please no small dogs left unattended. The fence isn't small enough to keep them from squeezing between the bars and escaping the property. Incense is welcome in the yurt, but please or lit candles. USE OF WORK OUT EQUIPMENT AND INVERSION TABLE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. Please ask for assistance and instruction before hanging upside down in the inversion table, or opening the roof/tono of the yurt :)

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.
