Los Angeles Studio Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Backyard Studio In The Heart Of One Of La's Only Walking Communities!

Walk a few blocks to the hip and vibrant town of atwater village, bustling day and night with tons of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. This artsy and familial community is the perfect place to dwell temporarily in la.

Terracotta tile floors and blonde wood beam ceilings provide a light and homey ambiance. French doors open to backyard with a stone patio and pergola under bougainvillea flowers. Quiet backyard with lush and mature landscaping.

The pretty and open studio for two has a comfortable queen bed with soft sheets, down comforter, and two down pillows. Kitchenette is equipped with fridge, hot plate, toaster oven, coffee maker, silverware, dishware, and basic cookware. Large closet space, and small bathroom with shower. The hung, flat screen tv has cable. Additional amenities include air conditioning, heater and wifi.

*designated gated entrance

*motion lit stone path leads through the backyard to studio

*urban vegetable garden, fruit trees, fire pit and water fountain

Step outside your front door and pick a ripe orange for fresh squeezed juice in the morning, sip some tea on the patio under a pergola of bougainvillea flowers while listening to the sound of the outdoor fountain. Make smores by the fire after a walk back from dinner. A spot for the active twosome who wants a lovely place to rest their heads.

Cozy, safe & nice place with terrible internet

Cozy, safe & nice place with terrible internet
  • 3 of 5
We stayed in here for two weeks. It is a cute little one room space with a little kitchen. There is a closet, a table and two chairs and a kingsize bed. The room has a TV, but only about 10 channels, so the apartment is not for people who like to watch their favorite tv-series while away from home.

The bathroom is a little room built into the main room. It has no ceiling and no real door. So privacy is not given, but if you stay here with your partner and you have no "secrets" it is ok. But it is really small.
We were there during two really hot weeks. The not so powerful AC couldn't handle the heat and it got very hot inside during the day, so hot you couldn't stay in the backhouse between 9am and 7pm. The backyard looked really nice it only could have been cleaner and we missed some deckchairs.
The only big problem we had was with the internet connection. The wifi only worked with the laptop, but not with the iPhone, iPad or Androitd tablet. And even with the laptop it disconnected often. When it worked the download speed was under 1 Mbit/s. Kirsten should defnitly upgrade the connection and her very old router. So if you really need a fast & working Internet connection this place is not the right for you, but if you are not depending on it or you don't need internet at all it is a very nice apartment.
Unfortunaly the problem with the Internet was not handled well. We mentioned the problem at the first evening to the manager and send an email the next day. The only response we got was to go to Starbucks down the street, they have free wifi. That would have been ok, if the problem would have been solved after one or two days or if you are there just for a weekend or vacation. But we stayed there nearly two weeks and it was a business trip and no vacation. As I work in IT I even gave them an inexpensive solution that should have solved the problem but nothing happened. Ultimately I bought additional data on my mobile phone plan and used a hotspot.

The second thing that we really didn't like was that we had to sign off an additional damage waiver on our time of arrival. Which seemed odd, as we had already purchased the HomeAway property damage protection that covers damages that may have occurred in advance + we deposited an additional 200$ for damage protection at the time of booking.

If Kirsten gets the Internet fixed we would come back. The neighbourhood is really nice and quiet.

Owner's Response: Hello all reading this review,

Yes the space is small but it is not in any way advertised differently. The unit does get hot in Summer, however we are starting a renovation on the unit this October 2014 that will address the heat. I have never heard complaints about this problem as when people are home they run the air which works nicely and open the doors. If you walk into a small space that has been closed for some time without air running it will be hot. :)

Regarding the internet, I have purchased a separate wifi connection specifically for the unit and this renter's comments on how it could be addressed were noted, validated, and appreciated! This renter exchanged emails both with myself and my property manager so I am confused why he acts as though it was a blunt response to go to Starbucks, which was part of a response in an apologetic tone. Not much could have been done at the time unfortunately.

I apologize if my damage routine is inconvenient, however it is in place for a reason. I am sure everyone can respect that this is not a commercial hotel, it is my personal home.

We have outstanding reviews on other sites I advertize with, unfortunately can not be named here for obvious reasons and we take pride in the service we offer!! Many thanks for staying with me and we hope you come back.

Cozy home away from home

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in Kristen's guest-house for a week in April. The location is ideal - a quiet, homey neighborhood of leafy streets, three blocks from the main street and the I-5 freeway to everywhere. The cottage is behind the garage in the garden behind the main house, which was empty, so we got to use the driveway. Total privacy, very quiet, airy, charming... just what we wanted. We didn't get to meet Kristen, but her manager was very friendly and helpful, and they were both very responsive. Generous closet space, a very comfy bed, and we enjoyed our coffee and newspaper outside under the arbor. We felt completely safe leaving the windows open (which isn't always a given!) Thanks to both Kristen and Sally for the efforts you've put in to making this a cozy, comfortable place.
