The Space

NOTE: Please use the "Contact Host" button, not the "Book" button.

This 1920's vintage Spanish home has charming art studios set in a garden menagerie. The sunny spaces were designed to recall Frida Kahlo's animal-filled Casa Azule studios. They all have separate entrances. Each has a tiny kitchenette, sweet little bath, and is furnished with hand crafted rustic pieces. This listing is for a downstairs studio labeled "Studio 2"in the above photos. It includes the fun craft room, claw foot tub in bath, and hand painted tile kitchenette. When there are two guests, the lovely private "blue space" may be added.

Each studio has a view of the barn yard where bougenvilla covered arbors shade amiable chickens, rabbits, goats, pig, etc.. There are art supplies for guest use and a special craft area. Resident artists offer classes.

Walk to the city's best urban hip/haute shopping, eateries and entertainment. We are steps or a bike ride away from The Grove, Design Center, Runyon Canyon, Kodak Theater, Beverly Center, Sunset Blvd., House of Blues, The Arc-Light, Whole Foods, Poinsettia Park's new outdoor gym, LA County Museum of Art, The Broad Contemporary, The Craft and Folk art Museum. Combine the best of country and city living!

When sending an inquiry, please enable the button to receive a call and especially mention that you have read the following:

You are welcome to bring well behaved, quiet pets if approved in advance. Please note that there are also some 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 the occasional oink or snuffle, 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.

Short stays, weekends and seasonal pricing may be higher. Check our downstairs listings if this calendar is full.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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!

  • I stayed here for 5 nights and absolutely LOVED this place! Cyan and Anthn are awesome folks and great hosts. They gave me the layout of the land when I arrived and were very helpful with directions and suggestions on things to do and places to see. As an artist myself, this place was such an inspiration to me. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit to LA.

  • Cindy and Anthony are such great hosts!!! They helped us in everything : they met us in the airport, helped with luggage, gave us bycicles during whole month. They were so kind, they suggested us a lot of useful information about cafes, cinemas,shopping centers, attractions and so on. It's too difficult to express our opinion in some sentences, we can write a novel about this great people!!!

  • Second time I've housed an employee with Cindy and Anthony and again it was nothing short of perfect. Bravo to the two of them for creating such a warm, inviting and one-of-a-kind environment!

  • I have never slept so well as in this charming artist's studio set amidst an urban animal rescue haven. The cottage/studio is lovingly decorated with Mexican folk style furniture and accessories. The wonderful and charming hosts are available for suggestions, advice, and good conversation at any time. This cottage is a little hidden gem in a quiet neighborhood in West Hollywood. I look forward to returning many times!

  • Cyan and Anthn were kind and generous hosts. They helped with our luggage and made us feel very welcome. They are busy caring people, however they always took the time to wish us a good morning/eveing and were interested in how our day had been.

    The artist's studio was very comfortable and surprisingly large and bright. I had a little patio to sit on which overlooked the goat paddock, which was really nice and made me feel at home (I have 2 goats on my property). If you are looking for a very tranquil and quiet place to stay in the heart of Los Angeles, this is the one.

    Thank you Cyan and Anthn for your animal rescue work, and providing me a home away from home. You are amazing people.

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!
