About Craig

I am a self employed individual working in the entertainment industry, I have a degree from Emerson College in Boston Massachusetts where I grew up. I love living in Hollywood and feel fortunate to own a great classic Craftsman home here where I can Walk, take the subway, see live theater, walk to fantastic restaurants, Live Music venues, The Famous upscale Arclight Movie Theater, and enjoy the outdoors after living in NYC for a number of years on and off.

Craig purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Craig chose Los Angeles County

It is a fantastic area and at the time I bought, I knew Hollywood was headed for a BIG REBIRTH! Hollywood has become the IT place to live in Los Angeles these days.

What makes this bungalow unique

The Hollywood Bowl, The Subway to connect me to downtown, The Kodak Theater, The W Hotel and Spa, Restaurants, Cafes , outdoor weekend Farmers Markets, Live theater and Music, and so much more. I love that I can walk to everything, this makes me feel much more connected to a City community that I have in other areas of Los Angeles.

The coolest hideaway home

  • 5 of 5

Everything was amazing, from beginning to end. Craig was so welcoming and hospitable I felt like a real neighbour. His communication with me prior to arrival was speedy and efficient, answering all my questions and ensuring that I made a seamless transition. During my stay, he was always helpful, changing light bulbs when needed or checking in on my general wellbeing. He even texted me to remind me to move my car on the right days to avoid any potential tickets! What a guy :)

The house was like a little oasis! Everything was clean and in good standing order, from the utensils to the appliances. The finish is beautiful and well-crafted. You can feel the love in the space when you walk in.

I've never felt so at home in LA as I did staying here. It would have been nice to have laundry on site but with a convenient wash-n-fold nearby, it was never an issue.

Highly recommend!!!

Very nice and clean

  • 5 of 5

Overall the location was perfect.. few minute walk to sunset.. went to Beauty and Essex (recommended by Craig) was amazing.. the food and service were top notch and dress to impress.. great hip place to people watch( we were under dressed but still was cool). The property itself is very clean .. kitchen had everything although we only cooked one morning out of four-days.. The upstairs bedroom is a little cramped with no real big dresser to put your clothes in.. just a side table.. if you're about 6 foot or taller you'll be ducking going up the stairs as the ceilings were girlfriend and I were there for four nights... so we assumed we would get new towels each day.. Second day I called Craig and asked if we could get another towel he said normally it's only one to help her visit per person but he accommodated us and gave us each an extra towel... overall what an amazing spot location.. Craig is such a very cool guy.. you can text him or call him and he'll always answer you right back...

Owner's Response: Thanks Stephen, Great hosting you and your girlfriend for your first experience using a travel site and in particular VRBO/HomeAway. Stephen and his girlfriend were a pleasure to host and I love telling guests about local sites, hot spots, cultural activities etc. to explore while visiting Hollywood. For travelers reading Stephen's review, to clarify the Upstairs loft is a sleeping loft as pictured and plenty spacious, there are dressers down stairs for clothing, and a sizable closet for your clothes, the dressers are not meant to be upstairs as I designed the space efficiently. There are 15 foot Vaulted ceilings which invoke a feeling of open and spacious. The linens provided are sufficient in amount and for the number of guest and days travelers are staying, I think Stephen having not experienced these sites, may have understandably expected it was just like hotel service where the towels are changed out daily, those of you travelers who are experienced know daily linen service is not provided as a norm, however that said, we are very accommodating should guests need additional linens. All said, thank you for choosing the Guest house and look forward to hosting you sometime in the near future ! Craig

Perfect Hollywood Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Very well established location in Hollywood! Walking distance to everything you would want to see and experience. Craig is an extremely hospitable host and shared a lot of the surrounding local hangouts. He was great at communicating everything for the entire trip. A must stay!

Charming Craftsman Guest House

  • 4 of 5

The small charming guest house is situated in the rear of the owner's property. It is separated from the house by a privacy fence and is accessed through the lighted side drive upon return in the evening. The guest house has a kitchen, bathroom with shower, living area and closet on the first floor. The kitchen has a newer stove and refrigerator and is adequately furnished for meal preparation. The bedroom area is located in the second floor loft. The bed is comfortable and there is a small end table with several drawers and additional space for suit cases. Parking is on the street with a guest parking pass. Craig was very responsive and helpful during our stay. He went out of his way to provide information about the area. He went out of his way to contact us about a clothing item left behind and took responsibility for mailing it to us..
