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.

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.
Cyndy and Anthony were the perfect hosts! They went above and beyond to make me and my colleague feel at home during our stay. We loved sitting outside in the morning with the critters and discussing a broad range of topics with them. We had been traveling across the US for work and really felt at home while staying with them. They gave a tour of Hollywood and even dropped us off at the beach. It was a magical stay and I hope to visit them again soon! I highly recommend staying with them.
Cyndy and Anthony were very welcoming and caring hosts! They are very hands-on hosts and gave us helpful tips on where to eat and what to see and do in the neighborhood (lots in walking distance). They even offered to drive us around to where we wanted to go. We were two and stayed in the studio on the ground floor which had two separate beds, the one in the blue room was a blow up mattress. The bedrooms were separated by a very thin wall which gave us some privacy. We shared a bathroom and there was a tiny kitchen which we didn't end up using since we went out to eat. This place was truly an urban farm in the middle of West Hollywood! Despite gentle pig oinks in the mornings, I was surprised how tranquil and quiet it was - definitely a respite from city life and one of the most unique Airbnb experiences I've ever had! I recommend this place to those who want something off the beaten path and don't mind a more rustic getaway! Thanks Cyndy and Anthony for your warm hospitality.
This was the second time I stayed with Cyndy and Anthony and it was consistent with the first time. They were easy to get hold of and communicate with and they were generous with their time when I had questions or challenges. The studio has lovely details and is a little cozy oasis. It felt exactly like the pictures looked. I will be staying here again!
We had a wonderful time at Cindy's and Anthony's urban farm! It felt like sleeping in a little utopia in West Hollywood. It was a pleasure to wake up with such a nice view on all the cute animals.
Cindy and Antony were great hosts! They made us feel really at home from the start! We had great conversations, we shared the same interests so Cindy and Anthony were able to give us good advice about what to do in LA.
The apartment was unique in it's style. Really beautifully decorated, what gave us an instant feeling of being on vacation!
We would definitely come back next time!
Thank you Cindy and Anthony for the pleasant stay!! See you next time!

We loved staying at this wonderful gem in LA. Not only is it amazing to be amongst all the animals while in the city, it is a perfect location for shopping, sight seeing, and getting to the beach. We are animal lovers, so we really enjoyed getting to know all the farm animals (especially Beatrix and Alice, the bunnies)! If you are coming to LA and want a unique experience I highly recommend staying here. I cannot say enough great things about the urban farm and our hosts!
If you get a chance to stay here - take it! Cyan & Anthn are warm, welcoming, generous hosts. They have a lot of great tips for visiting the area and have also created a list of restaurants, museums, etc. with helpful descriptions that they've put in the room. Their animal friends are funny & cute - we were especially charmed by Michelle the turtle. And the fresh eggs from Ruby & the other the chickens - so fluffy & delicious! Most of the animals have been rescued from bad situations, which says a lot about Cyan & Anthn. We stayed in the upper studio, which is thoroughly adorable. Loved all the artistic touches! Great neighborhood, too - easy access to the LACMA, tar pits, & farmer's market. I only wish we could've stayed longer!
Cyan and Anthn were lovely hosts. We were only there for a short stay, but it was nice to see their sweet sanctuary for all the happy animals!

About the Host, Cyn-Anthony
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!
