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.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

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!!!

A (too) short visit to Hollywood

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in Craig's craftsman cottage for two nights in late November. We were very pleased with the accommodations. We arrived earlier than we anticipated and Craig made arrangements to meet us and let us in early. The cottage is just as described on the website and the photos very accurately reflect the cottage. The cottage was clean and the bed and furniture were comfortable. It was perfect for the two of us. It was easy to find with our GPS, on street parking is available and the cottage is within walking distance of most things you would want to see when visiting Hollywood and the L.A. area. Craig was very helpful in recommending places to eat and visit as well as places to avoid. If you want a really good meal, we suggest Cleo's (Craig can tell you how to find it). It is an upscale tapas restaurant with an interesting food and drink selection; I am not a vegetarian, but if I could prepare brussels sprouts and mushrooms dishes the way they do at Cleo's, I could probably become one. Both dishes were amazing, Our only regret was that the weather was cooler than we anticipated and we were not able to enjoy drinks on the lovely covered front deck. (Of course, none of us can control the weather, and L.A. you are welcome for the rain we brought with us, we know how much you needed it.) We would definitely book with Craig again if we make a return trip to the L.A. area.

Quiet, cozy accommodations in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with Craig was great! We arrived later at night on the Thursday of American Thanksgiving and he was very accommodating when he met us in front of the gate and showed us around the loft. The place was clean and was a great size for 2 people. The location is absolutely perfect and we found a lot of things to be walkable. If walking wasn't an option, Uber prices were super reasonable. Craig gave us some great suggestions about where to go for brunch nearby. All and all, we had a fabulous trip!

Hollywood Stay at Craig's Guest House.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed immensely our stay at Craig's Hollywood guest house. We were in town to run the LA half-marathon.

The location is ideal for seeing and experiencing all of the sights of the famous Hollywood Landmarks. Everything is in such close proximity to Craig's place, that you can walk and enjoy all of the landmarks, eating, drinking, and entertainment spots.

Also, Craig's suggestions for things to do and see, and eat and drink were spot on.

The guest house itself was perfect for our needs for two people. We really enjoyed hanging out on the lovely deck and just relaxing.

One of the great benefits of staying with Craig was the parking. We received a parking pass from Craig and were able to park and not have to stress about the prospects of getting a ticket.

Overall, our stay was a pleasurable experience, and I would highly recommend anyone who is thinking of lodging in the area to give Craig a call.

Thanks, Bruce Wilson... Denver Colorado
