1920's Spanish home has separate charming art studios set in a garden menagerie. The sunny spaces are designed to evoke Frida Kahlo's Casa Azule and are proximate to varied special animals.
The studios all have individual entrances. Each has a tiny kitchenette, sweet little bath, and is furnished with hand crafted rustic pieces. The claw foot tub is quite cute and fun for bubble baths, but note that it is vintage, thus not designed for taller folks.
This listing is for the downstairs 2nd Studio only, see photo captions. An adjacent small room with extra bed may be added. Price for adjacent space varies, as do the weekend rates. In general, the second studio is set up for a single person, although the adjacent room may be added for friends not traveling as a couple. (Please see upstairs listing if you are traveling with a partner).
Studios view garden and barn yard where bougainvillea covered arbors shade amiable chickens, rabbits, goats, pigs, etc.. There are art supplies for guest use and a special craft area. Resident artists offer classes.
Use the Contact Host link initially, after which we will arrange a call before using the Book Button. Phone numbers are auto - deleted in emails, so if the Airbnb Phone is on hiatus, please request ours or code yours. Also please place general info and photos of guests + pets on the profile page in advance.

Please note that there are special restrictions regarding this setting. Because the studios are accessed through a garden gate proximate to the animals we can not accommodate additional visitors, if you are joining friends please plan to meet them off-site. The animals are very sensitive to voices so this setting is only appropriate for people who enjoy hearing critters, but can be comfortable being very quiet themselves while anywhere on the property. We are an urban wildlife sanctuary. In addition to the barnyard pals we rehabilitate and release raccoons, possums, squirrels, chipmunks, etc. .We are participating in a renewal project to reintroduce frogs native to the environment (although so far they seem to prefer a neighbor's pond). We have no televisions, and ask that guests use headphones if listening to music. Neither smoking or illegal drugs are allowed on the property. Your pets are welcome if friendly and quiet, they are only allowed in limited areas, but there are some private patios for their enjoyment.
We are LA artists, but have designed spaces to pretend we live elsewhere, perhaps in Pooh's Tree, Calder's Circus or on a flowery ranchito, next door to Trotsky in Coyoacan. Such pet filled places aren't for everyone, but consider a stay with us if you like quiet folks and friendly farm animals!
