Comfortable garage converted into a living space in Hancock Pk/Larchmont Village. Queen size bed. Kitchen, Fridge, Adjustable Big Screen TV. Closet. Yard. Indoor/outdoor eating. Free Wi-Fi .

The space

Your own private funky garage apartment in Hollywood area/Larchmont Village/Hancock Park. There is SUPER convenient 24 hour self check in. No need to go through the hassle of contacting/meeting up with the host for entry. You will receive self check in instructions, in your itinerary, when you book. This is an alternative style space and is best suited for guests with a youthful, flexible attitude, that are open to alternative style spaces. My experience with this space suggests to me that it may not be appropriate for older/elderly guests and/or guests that are use to a more standard style lodging experience. Fyi. The backyard is shared.There is a tent (see pictures), that is also in the backyard, that sometimes has an airbnb guest, and there is a really cute, extremely friendly English Bulldog named Winston that lives in the front house that sometimes comes out to visit. This is a pet friendly listing. You should be comfortable with dogs.The front of the house has a view of the Hollywood Sign. Very close to Hollywood. Very close to Downtown Los Angeles. 3 minute walk to the Larchmont Village shopping/restaurant row area and the newly opened ice cream shop SALT AND STRAW. This is considered one of the very best areas/neighborhoods in LA!

Pets are welcome, however there is an additional $15 cleaning fee that will be added after you book.

Larchmont Village is a quaint and friendly shopping district in the center of a bustling city. It is located in one of the oldest and most historically significant neighborhoods in Los Angeles and is bordered by some of the most well preserved older homes in the city, ranging from 1920's California bungalows to grand old estates. Larchmont Village serves as a Main Street retail district to Hancock Park, Windsor Square and nearby Paramount Studios. Larchmont maintains a small town feel and serves as a lovely community gathering place. Enjoy the charm of a day spent on Larchmont experiencing a variety of wonderful ethnic restaurants, sidewalk cafes and upscale boutiques.

Hancock Park is approximately 2.2 square miles and consists of about 1,200 homes. Its boundaries are Rossmore to Highland Avenues, and Melrose Avenue to Wilshire Boulevard.

Brian is a really nice host and Winston the dog is one of the most adorable dog you will ever see. The room is spacious and the bed is very soft. The AC works and helps us survive from the CA heat. Location is very convenient. It's just one block away from a street of foods and you can see the hollywood sign from the front door of the house.

Cute little place, cute for a young couple movie night/getaway (what I did there). I was really sold when I layed on the SUPER comfortable mattress which (I wanna say) was a temperpedic! The dog Winston stole my heart, cutest English bulldog you'll ever meet! The room was clean as a 'funky' modernized garage could be, I was comfortable the entire time. I had a great night and he even let us check out a little late - can't ask for a better stay than that

This place is in a prime location. Most aspects of the garage are as stated. However, while we were there we could not work the toilet so had to use the one at the coffee shop next door. Also, it was quite hot in LA at the time (a heatwave) and the AC was not able to cool the apartment at all. Brian is responsive however, and his pup is very cute.

Thank you. The toilet is now working fine and I've put in a brand new air conditioner that cools off the unit really well. The guest that just left today said it was great and they would sometimes have to turn it off because is would get to cold.

Location is great, close to all Hollywood attractions. Premises were clean, spacious and cosy. Brian was very helpful and provided plenty of useful info about the neighborhood. Would definitely recommend.

Communication and check in was very easy. Location is great. One wall wasn't properly sealed, so crickets and insects can come inside. Smoke from cigarettes filtered inside. Plenty of street parking and the dog is awesome!

My girlfriend and I stayed one night at Brian's place. We came in rather late and left early. The check in was very convenient and we really liked the neighborhood. However, we found the place rather dirty with several (small) dead and alive spiders in the shower and the bedroom, and there was a lot of dust under the bed. All in all, the price was low for the area and if it would have been cleaner it could have been a worthwhile choice. Best, Hannes & Linnéa

I'm from Boston. I own an acting school in LA. I love movies, tennis, dinner with friends and thousands of other things! People might describe me as warm, funny and down to earth.
