Great location, abundant indoor/outdoor warm & inviting spaces, open floor plan
I love LA! I have lived here most of my life & still find it full of magic & intrigue. There are always new & exciting things to discover here. I've been short-term hosting my guesthouse since Jan 25, 2015. Guests often say that once inside the gates they feel as if they are in a zen-like other dimension:) Then once outside, instantly are back in the heart of the big city, with all the amenities that the fast lane offers. It's a convenient juxtaposition and I like to think it allows guests to experience the best that the City Of Angels has to offer. I'm so glad I began this business as I believe wholeheartedly in the empowerment of short-term rentals. Profoundly, it enhances the ability for modest-budget travelers to explore the world easier, better & more frequently than before this phenomenon began. Traveling is something I like to do too so I want to embellish the thrill travelers will experience by welcoming as many as possible to the City of Angels via my spacious, easy, friendly backyard oasis & plush guesthouse cottage. When I travel I like to go places & blend in as a local, see the city, town or village from the eyes of those who live there. My guesthouse allows that. Its warm, inviting & functional. It's a private little jungle; quiet, peaceful & lush, but outside of the 8 foot walls you will quickly see it is in the very BEST central, heart of the urban epicenter location for getting around & seeing LA. When you stay with me you get a fabulous indoor space, a big garden to relax & entertain in, as well as close proximity to fun places to explore & sight-see. If you're in the entertainment business & coming here for work, we are close to most of the major studios. I want to help you have an amazing stay in LA. Thank you for stopping by & please send a request to book with questions—as I am happy to get you all the info you need to make your trip to LA absolutely fabulous:) PS: I work as a realtor too—& am happy to help anyone buy their own LA oasis:)
Sallie purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Sallie chose Hollywood
This guesthouse is a jewel. It has good, warm, and exotic energy pulsing through it. Before doing turn-key renting I previously rented to longer term guests who never wanted to leave! Several couples have even gotten engaged here— it just has a romantic and warm effect. It is perfect for extended stays as this fully remodeled private guesthouse bungalow comes with modern kitchen and bath and all amenities and is near studios, cultural events, shopping, sightseeing, and tourist attractions. While the space is gorgeous, functional and affordable, the location is nothing less than IDEAL especially for those who need a longer term living situation. You'll park your car on the street but with easy and accessible availability whereby you can almost always find a spot right in front. Coming down the driveway you will arrive at the 9 ft. double gate. If no one’s there to greet you personally a key lock box assures easy access with the private code we provided after you booked. You will then step into the secluded jungle-like back yard. Three friendly felines roam the property but do not leave the grounds, you will likely only see 2 during your stay. We ask that you always keep the entrance gate securely latched behind you & do not allow kitties inside your guesthouse as this keeps it allergy-free for future guests. In the main room, the 12 foot vaulted ceilings have 2 ceiling fans to circulate air year round and a large wall AC unit keeps things cool during late summer and early fall. Three skylights located in the main room, kitchen and bath, filter natural light in. Additional spotlight lighting on dimmers and recessed lighting too makes for much lighting control throughout, from bright to romantic to dramatic. A real fireplace with an ornate solid oak Victorian mantle adds a cozy, romantic and inviting appeal year-round. And in the chilly months a wall furnace gets the entire house toasty warm in just a few minutes.

A fantastic little place to stay at, central to most things in Hollywood, great atmosphere and cozy.
Everything about this place was perfect for my stay there with 2 roommates. Kitchen, laundry, spacious room, privacy, it was everything we needed and hoped for. Sallie has been such a great host, attending to our needs and always pleasant to be around.
Sallie's place was everything we could have asked for and more. The property itself is well-maintained and tastefully decorated, and the kitchen is fully stocked as well, which I appreciated. We greatly enjoyed using the outdoor fire pit as well. Overall, I would definitely consider staying at Sallie's again.
My daughter and I enjoyed our time in LA. The house was Very nice. It provided us with everything we needed while were were there. Sallie was very kind. Thank you!!
Perfect location for vacationing/sight seeing the Hollywood / LA area. Would absolutely stay here again and even amend my travel plans to match availability. Sallie is great. Truly enjoyed our stay.
The guest house is complete with everything you can possibly need. Very clean and spacious.
Our stay at Sallie's BEST Guesthouse
We enjoyed our stay. Sallie was there when we arrived, and she was very personable. A few of the lights and fans were not working properly, and Sallie quickly addressed the problem. She was also quick to respond whenever I texted her. The guesthouse is a nice size and very quiet. It was hot in LA when we were there, and the A/C in the guesthouse worked great. The extra bedroom provided ample space to hang up all our clothes, as well as lots of hangers. There is a large size TV, and a large kitchen. The bathroom has good lighting for putting on makeup, and there is a wide shelf on the tub/shower where we could put all our toiletries and hair products.
Aside from amusement parks, sightseeing, beach combing, restaurants and clubs, shopping and celebrity watching—which is ABUNDANT— Dodger Stadium is located 5.9 miles away for baseball and Staples Center for Laker's basketball and other events is 6.9 miles. Kodak Theater, home of Academy Awards Ceremonies is just 1.5 miles from Sallie's Best Guesthouse.
