'The Rosewood' is a stand-alone cottage built in 1921 and although we have kept a lot of the house's history in tact, it is fully modernized with all amenities and luxuries you could hope for. When looking for places in LA, Air Conditioning and Private Parking are not standard - but The Rosewood offers you both! There is a private driveway for up to 3 cars (Cadillacs optional). Further upgrades include: a brand new bathroom, so that you can get ready for those big nights out, and a remodeled kitchen with marble surfaces and stainless steel appliances, so that you can prepare a gourmet meal with fresh ingredients from the local Farmer's Market!
Also available are a coffee maker and toaster, iron and ironing board, dish washer, washing machine, dryer, hair dryer hair and beauty products, HD Smart TV with Cable (200+ channels), Fireplace (to muse over a good book in front of), High-Speed Wi-Fi, BBQ Grill... everything to make your stay in this historic LA neighborhood as comfortable as possible.
The Master Bedroom (The Hollywood Room) is decorated in a luxurious 'Golden Age of Hollywood' style and equipped with a queen-sized bed with pillow top mattress, vanity desk, full-size mirror and closet. The second bedroom (The Hepburn Room) is decorated in the style of 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' and will provide you with another queen-sized bed and closet. Outdoors you will find a private backyard garden to relax in, surrounded by palm trees, succulents and orange and lime trees. The perfect spot to entertain and fire up the BBQ or enjoy a cocktail or 3 ;)
The entire house is yours for the length of your stay.
We are happy to provide you with as much or as little interaction as you desire. We can welcome you when you arrive and give you a 'tour' of the house, or we can provide you with self check-in instructions so that you can let yourself in at your convenience (most people prefer this option).
OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
If you require 1 or 2 additional rollaway beds for the common space please make a request prior to the beginning of your stay so that we can accommodate.
Long before Beverly Hills was 'Beverly Hills', there was Mid-Wilshire, one of the oldest, most affluent, architecturally well-preserved and star-studded neighborhoods in Los Angeles. 'The Rosewood' cottage was originally built to house visiting movie stars back in the Golden Age of Hollywood, though the real stars here are the centuries old Californian palm trees that line the streets of Mid-Wilshire and have become an LA staple!
The neighborhood features prominently in TV shows like 'Private Practice' and 'Castle' and tons of movies. The studios are constantly filming around the neighborhood, so if you want to catch real production in action you're in for a treat. We are big foodies and love the restaurants around here but don’t take our word for it- even celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain testifies to all of its amazing places to eat, drink, and hang out in our neighborhood!
The cottage's location could not be more convenient for anyone needing to get around Los Angeles. Walk West and you’re in Larchmont, one of LA's most serene, quintessentially home-bound neighborhoods. It's a 15 min walk to Larchmont Village, LA's version of Main Street USA. Don't miss the Sunday farmer's market to see celebrities buying organic veggies and gourmet cheeses (mmmm!)
Walk one or two blocks East and you are in Koreatown, home to the best Korean BBQ in the world (seriously, it's better than in Korea according to Koreans)! The nearby Koreatown bars will blow you away. Our favorite bar, 'Blipsy's Barcade', has cheap drinks, 25-cent 80s arcade games, and an unmatched jukebox. It's empty before 10, and after it fills with supercool 20-somethings. Also check out 'The Copper Still', a more upscale intimate bar with specialty artesian cocktails concocted with care unlike anywhere else in the city.
It's just 15 mins to Silverlake and Echo Park, AKA Hipsterville central, filled with boutique stores, organic restaurants, and some of the best undiscovered music in the country. It's also an easy 10 mins drive to the Sunset Strip, where you can throw back shots next to celebs and wannabes at the Chateau Marmont. It's about 10 mins to Downtown, packed with museums, historic architecture, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, some of the best art galleries in America, and a never-ending rotation of new gourmet restaurants. Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive are 10 mins away if you're credit card can stand the trip... and if it can, well we are quite jealous! For those planning more of a day-trip, It's 30 mins to the beach, 90 mins to the desert, and 90 mins to the mountains. Yes, you can ski, hike, and swim all in one day. LA is the best! :)
So come and stay at The Rosewood - soak up the amazing history, be charmed by the cottage's character, and be dazzled by a touch of magic that hangs in the air...
