Our beautifully renovated 1920's Mediterranean bungalow is gloriously furnished, has a huge kitchen, and a lush, totally enclosed backyard with outdoor living space. We are two blocks from Paramount Studios and five blocks from Larchmont Boulevard with its trendy, boutique shopping, fabulous restaurants, and local produce farmer's market.

The space

Get away from it all in the middle of it all! We are in the heart of Hollywood, but nestled in a quiet, lovely neighborhood. Our house has wonderful indoor/ outdoor flow, a bubbling fountain, fruit trees, a gracious dining room and a kitchen you just want to hang out in all day. The beautiful furniture in the front room (email hidden), so you can curl up on the leather Chesterfield sofa and catch up with the world or close it away, stare into the fire and pretend the rest of the world doesn't exist.
Our backyard is a totally private, lush garden living space. Dine al fresco every meal in the mild California weather, lean back in the Adirondack chairs and watch the palm fronds stretch into the sky, BBQ on our outdoor grill or fire up the patio heater if the evening gets nippy. Feel free to borrow one of our several vintage bicycles to go exploring!

Spent a wonderful Christmas at the Larchmont residence. Such a lovely home in a great location! Accommodations were perfect--comfortable beds, plenty of places to sit, beautiful outdoor garden, even a lighted Christmas tree in the living room. Kitchen was well stocked with glasses, plates, coffee maker, water and ice dispensing refrigerator, dishwasher, and washer and dryer. Anything else we required or desired was available and easy to find. Bathrooms functioned well, and rooms were stocked with ample supplies of paper products (toilet paper, kleenex, and paper towels). Alice left a nice basket of goodies in the dining room for us to enjoy--cookies, candy, Starbucks coffee, and shower supplies. We parked our rental car in the driveway. Certainly wish we were back there, as we are expecting a huge snowstorm tonight in Minneapolis. Thank you so very much for the great vacation.

The Airbnb listing is very accurate. The house is interesting and very eclectic. Some of the decor and furniture is a bit uncomfortable. We arrived the same day the previous guests left so we had to wash our own towels and change the linens, which was kind of inconvenient. The little yard in the back is quite lovely though, it was really nice to sit out and relax on the patio in the evenings. The neighborhood was nice as well, quiet and clean.

Hi Scotyln. We always arrange to have our cleaning lady come between guests, but since you approached us at 4:30 PM on the very same day you wanted to check in, there was no time to do this. I explained to you that our only condition was, if you wanted the last-minute same-day booking, you would have to be willing to change your own linens. Your written reply on Air BnB was, "I definitely understand that. If there are sheets there so that we can change them we don't mind changing them ourselves. We are just so thrilled you accepted on such short notice!" As we did the favor that you requested by letting you have the booking, would you please write an addendum to your review saying that you agreed to be OK with the un-prepped house as you've previously stated in writing? We don't want future guests reading our reviews to think they might check into a dirty house. We would not have accepted your last-minute reservation if you had not assured us that you would be fine doing a little laundry, as you left us no time to have our cleaning lady come in and do it. And we're dismayed that you didn't feel comfortable with the antique furnishings in our house. We feel it's made very clear in our listing and photographs, and we consider it part of the appeal of the home.

Our host emailed us very helpful instructions for entering the house and had a wonderful listing of helpful information including nearby restaurants. She had a welcoming basket which even included gifts for our new grandson! She had drawer space and closet space available, wonderful towels and a fully equipped kitchen for cooking.

Alice's place really is "glorious." It is beautiful, functional, and comfortable, and we (2 adults and 2 teenage girls) had a fabulous time when we stayed at her place for 8 days. We had a lovely home base from which to explore LA, San Diego and Santa Barbara. In the mornings, we had coffee and exercised in her tiled outdoor space, and in the evenings we played card games in her gorgeous dining room. The location is great and the hosts were responsive when we had questions. Thank you, Alice and family!

Wonderful experience all around, as Alice was very good to deal with from initial contact through the entire stay. She was very accommodating and responsive during the booking process and whenever we had questions during our stay. The home suited the needs of our family of five perfectly, nice layout with plenty of amenities. It is well wired for Apple technology enthusiasts, which worked very well for us. The kitchen was well appointed yet missing a dedicated toaster with a functional toaster-oven serving the purpose. The kitchen, opened up to the back yard which allowed us to enjoy the alfresco dining in the evenings. Location was perfect for our side trips to Disneyland and Universal Studios and generally worked well for all of our LA area activities. It is a functioning household which offers the benefits of access to items that are not available in other rental homes but it does require some flexibility on the part of the renter to work around the hosts personal items. One note, you better love antiques as you are surrounded 360 degrees by them and they add a more formal/scary feel to the home. All in all, a wonderful home, fantastic host and great stay!
