AMAZING-You need to stay here!

  • 5 of 5

The property was even better than described. Perfect for a family who is looking to explore the area but be in a nice location. The guesthouse was clean and Deb and Dale were the best hosts. It was very clean and well maintained. You are in a PRIME location on Rodeo drive. Deb was extremely responsive whenever I had a question. Will DEFINITELY stay here again when in the area.

Beautiful Beverly Hills getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in Debbie's guesthouse for 4 days at the beginning of Thanksgiving week. It was lovely- a charming second floor cottagelike apartment with a wonderful balcony which was perfect for breakfast. Debbie and her husband are delightful hosts, and made us feel very welcome. The location couldn't be better, right on Rodeo Drive. It was easy to walk to lots of great restaurants and shops. We hope to return!

A True Home Away

  • 5 of 5

Debbie & Dale's place is clean and comfortable with the feel of historic Beverly Hills. We especially enjoyed early morning breakfast on the porch under the palm trees! The neighborhood is a quiet residential oasis yet very convenient for touring and enjoying the downtown Hollywood scene (Don't miss the Farmer's Market at Fairfax! Park in their lot and get a parking validation from vendors). We would definitely stay again.

Great location, fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Deborah & Dale for opening up your home to us, I am so grateful that my first experience of a private rental was with you guys!

I live in the UK and was coming to Beverly Hills to have surgery, so I needed a place to stay that was peaceful, private, safe and of course close to my Dr. After scouring through lots of listings and not really finding anything that was a “good fit” I came across this rental…

The photos showed this wonderful fresh apartment, with a relaxing garden on Rodeo Drive and upon contacting the owner (Deborah) who was very warm and accommodating I decided to book.

When I got there I was so happy to find that everything was EXACTLY as in the photos and description.

As soon as I walked into the guesthouse I immediately felt as though I had arrived “home”. The main living room area is really spacious and served my sister and I who were staying there very well. However, we could have easily had another two people staying with us with and been comfortable. There are two very cosy single beds tucked away on either side of the living area (nice size dining table, sofa and tv) and a highly recommended, addictive double bed in the main bedroom with an area where you can just sit and relax or read a book or two.

One thing we really loved was that we had our own balcony that we could access from the living area and the bedroom and have breakfast overlooking the garden in the mornings. As I was in recovery mode, I spent most of my days in the apartment and I can tell you it was such a pleasant relaxing experience. Whole foods is a short taxi ride away as are lots of lovely restaurants and of course the shops on Rodeo Drive. The kitchen is a good size and has all the amenities you would need in order to prepare a lovely meal during your stay. Wifi was our lifeline to keep in touch with family and watch Netflix during my recovery and it was a great speed regardless of how many iPhones, iPads and laptops we connected.

Something we really respect about the hosts is their view on saving water, they have installed a water saving shower head in the bathroom which means that the shower isn't high pressure (but equally as effective) and it was very refreshing to see this eco way of thinking from residents in an area where excess is usually the norm. I am due for the second phase of my op in the next few months and I will certainly be scheduling it around when this apartment is free to book. Thanks again Deborah and Dale see you soon! x

Perfect LA getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just the place for exploring LA and surrounding areas or just chill by the pool in this beautiful and quiet area.

Family of four with two grown-ups and two girls 10 & 12 had a fantastic time.

Special thanks to owners Debbie & Dale :-)
