About the property

Guest House: Please provide the reason for your visit.

The guest cottage is a bright & clean, top quality, hardwood floors in this 400 sq. ft. detached unit, no shared walls. Gracious homes, tree-lined Benedict Canyon Drive and Valley Vista. Stroll down to shopping and five star restaurants or wander up to hiking and biking trails in the Santa Monica Mountain Nature Conservancy. Easy bus connection to the Metro. Light weekly housekeeping & fluff 'n' fold (up to three loads) included for stays of longer than a week.

All windows of cottage either view trees or the garden and classic fountain. Cottage kitchen boasts custom hickory cabinets, new maple counter tops & stainless appliances inc. dishwasher and refrigerator with separate freezer; Keurig coffee maker; the newly remodeled bath features over-sized shower; instant hot water.

Skylight, double-glazed windows, recessed lights, dimmers; mahogany queen sleigh bed, new latex mattresses & tempur-pedic toppers. Down pillows & duvets. This gem is very quiet, peaceful, private, and squeaky clean.

My better half and I live and work out of the main house. We are mostly on site, yet out of site.

House Rules: We make a point of being quiet in the evening so you can relax, and we ask that you observe reasonable quiet hours as well between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m.. Please also be mindful of the noise level if you're coming in late as we have neighbors who wake up very early for work on both sides of the house. Please no packages or food deliveries to the house since they invariable come to the wrong door. Do not use our address for any purpose (such as writing it down as your own address on an application) to help us avoid unwanted mail after your stay. No pet are allowed in the cottage at any time. This is a completely non-smoking property as I work with people who have breathing problems. Please don't smoke anywhere on the property (e-cigs are okay) or in front of our neighbors' houses. No hair dyes, tanning agents or anything else that might damage linens may be used in the unit. If you suspect you might have an issue (for example, you just had your hair colored or tanner applied), please let me know prior to your stay so I can use linens that won't be harmed such as black towels to help avoid damage charges. No parties, no drugs, no guests who are not on your contract. Thank you for your understanding.

We love dogs but cannot accommodate them in the cottage at any time so that I can guarantee as hypo-allergenic experience as I can to those who are sensitive. We DO have a second listing at this same wonderful location where we welcome a small dog under the right circumstances and may offer dog sitting and walking so that you can have a bit of freedom. Please see listing #699052. I can also recommend a much larger house in Toluca Lake about ten minutes from here. Linda will consider a dog and offers a huge gated back yard. See listing #735690 for more info. Any dog must be crate trained and kept crated if left alone in the house since the stress of traveling can make even the best of dogs behave unpredictably.

South Sherman Oaks provides a picket-fence oasis tucked in the foothills, loaded with world-class eateries within a five minutes walk and television studios within a ten minute drive.

You don't need a car, but most prefer it in L.A.. We provide a temporary permit for guests so you can always park right in front of the house in case you're driving. I'm third-generation Los Angelina. I've lived all over the city before settling down here in my favorite L.A. neighborhood.

Enjoy hiking and biking in our Hollywood Hills nature conservancy trails or brave Beverly Hills down on the other side of Mullholland Drive. We prefer to stay here in the valley where the parking is usually easy and plentiful and the shopping offers plenty of options. Fashion Square shopping center with Bloomingdales is about a mile away. The famous Sherman Oaks Galleria was completely redone a few years ago and now provides a home to our favorite movie theater, the ArcLight Cinema, where you reserve your own spacious seat and enjoy a 'professional' atmosphere sans chatter.

Roughly half of our guests come to work in the entertainment industry due to our close proximity to film and television studios, and many of the rest come to visit family nearby. For the rest who come to relax and vacation, the Getty Museum is always a wonderful way to spend the day, and you can take the scenic route out Mullholland to get there.

If you're looking to walk down the street for some fine dining, Il Tiramisu is always my first choice, and not just because it's 45 seconds away. Northern Italian cuisine, wonderful service. Say hello to Ivo and Peter for me!

Sweetharts is hard to pass up on the walk back. Yummy gelatos and ice creams. Actress Melissa Joan Hart started it up a few years ago as a labor of love, and we're so happy to have this addition to the neighborhood.

Sweetbutter, about a 90-second walk is rustic marketplace with a delectable array of housemade muffins, scones, cookies and layer cakes. It's always packed, but it's well worth it.

Isakaya M Sushi, just as close, is a fun sushi bar that's open all afternoon through 'til 12 or 1 a.m. most nights.

I could go on and on about the restaurants. Just conduct a search for 'restaurants near Woodman Ave and Ventura Blvd' and you'll see what I mean.
