I've lived in Toluca Lake for almost 15 years and just love it! I'm originally from Pennsylvania and have come to LA via Boston and Chicago. I work in the entertainment business (producing independent films and most recently writing a musical). I am a big traveller myself and have lived in London, Sydney, and Costa Rica. I recently staying in a vacation rental in New York City and had a wonderful experience, so I thought I would provide that kind of comfort and quality to other travelers coming to Los Angeles!
Kate purchased this apartment in 2005
I rented my guest cottage to the same person for the last three years. When he moved from the area, I decided it was an opportunity to furnish the place the way I always envisioned it being furnished (with the perfect balance of beauty AND comfort) and offer it to those looking for a home away from home when visiting LA.
My boyfriend and I stayed in this house for a month and had a great time! The best part about staying here was the area - it's a block away from an amazing street full of tons of different types of restaurants, all of them great!! The place is quite small, but good for us since we spent most of our time out and about. However, when we did spent time in the cottage it was super comfortable and had everything we needed. The Trader Joe's is just down the street so we were able to easily keep the kitchen stocked! It is also in a very quiet and safe area, so I always felt comfortable if I was home alone. And Kate is a super sweet and a very helpful landlord. If we ever needed her help she was always available! I would definitely recommend staying here. I lived in LA for a year before but never spent any time in Toluca Lake. I am so glad I decided to stay here because it is such a nice area!!
Two of us stayed in the cottage for two months! We adored it and the location. It really felt like home, and we were sad to leave.
This attractive studio is quiet, clean and comfortable. The bed especially, is comfortable.
That's really important. The kitchen is well stocked and the refrigerator is large. There is a loft that one or two children would thoroughly love. There is even a doggie door to let a pet get out into an enclosed patio. Street parking is right by the entrance. The owner lives just blocks away and is easily assessable. My wife and I look forward to staying here again when in the area.
My mother and I stayed at this guest cottage for an extended stay (almost 2 months) with my dog and felt right at home from the first day. The cottage is well maintained, delivered in a clean state, and in a very comfortable and quaint neighborhood with Trader Joes, and many restaurants within a short 10 minute walk. With an open concept the studio guest cottage has plenty of space, especially with the double doors opening onto a private fenced in patio. Even more, Kate was the most hospitable host who accommodated our needs perfectly. Will stay there again!
My wife and I stayed here for two weeks in November, 2013, and we had a terrific experience. Kate was enormously helpful, always attentive and kind, full of good suggestions and a pleasure to deal with. The little cottage is lovely, we ate outside in the tiny garden area, and Kate directed us to wonderful restaurants. Every time we called her with a question or request, she got back to us immediately, and she always had good information and advice. The neighborhood is peaceful, there is easy access to shops, stores, restaurants, movies, etc., and we had no complaints whatsoever, thanks in large part to Kate's willingness to be friendly and helpful. We had a great stay and would gladly stay again. Highly recommended.
We recently had the pleasure of staying in Kate's cottage for a week. The location was perfect whether we were going to Griffith Park to run, heading out to museums, grocery shopping, cooking, getting to a metro location, or just relaxing in the garden area. The cottage was spacious and comfortable with Kate just a phone call or text away if anything came up. We are already planning another visit to the charming place. Thank you Kate for sharing your cute cottage.
