“Cosy homey space tucked away and close to everything”
Reviewed 1 April 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My brother and his family stayed at Yvonne's gorgeous one bedroom apartment Feb/March for two weeks. I live in the neighborhood and it's a gem of a place to have family (or friends) stay if you want more (a lot more!) than a near by hotel. There is a massive beautiful garden, the inside space is cosy with everything you need and if it's not there Yvonne will do everything she can to help as quickly as possible. Parking is easy and getting to any of the 'hot spots' from this location is SO easy, either walking or driving.

“Home away from home!”
Reviewed 2 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I had a second opportunity to stay with Yvonne at her lovely home at the base of the Hollywood hills and had to take advantage of her hospitality.

Quiet and perfectly positioned it is still well looked after and incredibly homely, having visited previously it was great to know where everything was and to also see familiar faces and know names before we had even arrived. It's not a pristine hotel experience, but that is not the intention. It is a welcome and realistic experience which is perfect if that is what you are after.

I cannot recommend this rental enough, Yvonne is very welcoming and friendly and her neighbour Michael is great to talk to in the calm cool evenings. Everything you would need is within a 25 minute walk but renting a car is advised.

“Cool place, great host, great location”
Reviewed 16 December 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I traveled with my daughter. She's a singer/songwriter and we were there for business. The cottage was really close to everything in Hollywood. It's in the hills adjacent to Hollywood, probably the first suburb. The house is original and really cool. It's not retro, it's the real deal. We really enjoyed our stay and Yvonne was a kind, caring, and friendly host. The room was just as pictured. It is a very well maintained and clean OLD place. We loved it as it had charm and we got to see how they built houses back then. Really cool and a really good value. Parking on the street is readily available.

“Disappointing, but a good location”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The place looks quite different than on the pictures - it is more run down and the rooms we were in smelled of stale air. The house is an older and has a nice style, but the owner does not seem to invest into the renovations. It could be turned into really nice property with just a bit of investment.
The rooms are also smaller than they seem on pictures. This is not a huge issue, but do not expect spacious place.
The bed sheets and pillows were worn down and given the price should have been much better. It is not that expensive to buy new pillows every couple months... The beds also creak and squeak quite loudly.
The location of the place is nice tough - not far from Universal Studios, Griffith Observatory and other landmarks.

The owner was also not that pleasant to deal with. We had some questions on the first day and she was annoyed because we asked about something which was written on a "guest instructions" paper in our room (we had not noticed the paper).

Thank you for your feedback. I am very sorry you weren't happy with your stay. Since you've been here I have already replaced the pillows and the towels. I apologize that I didn't get to it before your stay. I am sorry you found me unfriendly. Maybe it was just a miscommunication. Most of our guests find me very friendly as you will see on other reviews. In fact, some have become friends of mine.
