Smack dab in the heart of Hollywood, this charming home and creative oasis is within walking distance of everything interesting and beautiful in Hollywood. Its conveniently located on a private tucked away street providing you privacy, inspiration and convenience! FUN HOLLYWOOD FACTS: this is the former home to a young Marilyn Monroe, and also was the house that the Showtime show, The Real L Word, was filmed. Lots of creative energy and inspiration here!

The space
The room you will be staying in is called Tranquility Room. Set on the back of the house, you will get a lovely view of the garden as the sun comes up to greet you for the day in Los Angeles. This includes a high quality queen size bed with a very comfortable memory foam mattress, streaming flat panel TV with Roku, spacious closet, ceiling fan, and smart device enabled. There is an automated standing / sitting desk in the room to use during your stay. The room is also conveniently located right next to the full guest bathroom. The room also has a smart lock doorknob so you don't have to worry about carrying around keys. We have also included some lovely Los Angeles travel and tour books for you to peruse and get inspired.

As you can see from the pics, there are plenty of delightful plants throughout the home, inside and out, to create a harmonious vibe. Including a bountiful orange tree in the backyard which we harvest often for some fresh OJ!

There is also a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer that you are welcome to use if needed. You will also have access to all the common areas of the main house including the kitchen lounge, living room, oversized full kitchen, guest bathroom and shower as well as a private front patio lounge area, and a back deck outdoor space and lounge area, which we also grow a garden in.

You are also welcome to complimentary fruit, coffee & tea, as well as fruit & herb infused water that we will make available to you during your stay with us!
