Spanish-Style Guest House in Hancock Park - Walk to Melrose Ave.

Find peace and quiet in the heart of Los Angeles at this quaint 1BR guest house in Hancock Park. Elegant Spanish-style decor and lush landscape give this space the feeling of a faraway retreat amidst the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.

With two floors of space and a peaceful yard under mature trees, this rental is ideal for business travelers (who will love the Wi-Fi, desk, and printer) as well as vacationing couples and families. The main house is just beyond the patio, granting you plenty of privacy.

A coveted location in historic Hancock Park places you within minutes of Hollywood's famed sites and Larchmont Village's charming shops and eateries.

Please note: This home has a maximum two-week stay.

LIVING AREA

Flooded with natural light and decorated in tasteful, Spanish-inspired hues, the living area offers a peaceful spot to unwind. Relax on a full-size sleeper sofa and watch shows on the 40in TV, equipped with Netflix and cable, or browse a selection of books and board games.

KITCHEN & DINING

The dining area is detailed with a glass table, as well as a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, and a Keurig. French doors lead to the patio - open them wide for true villa-style, indoor-outdoor living.

BED & BATH

The upstairs master bedroom features stately wood furniture, a queen bed, and a 32in TV with cable. With a desk and plush armchair, this room feels like a private retreat of its own. The en-suite bath offers a walk-in shower, brand-new with beautiful Walker-Zanger tile.

OUTDOOR AREA

A charming garden patio separates your guest house from the main home. Follow the stone path to a private quiet backyard. Prepare an alfresco meal on the grill while you enjoy cocktails seated around a teak dining table for six.

We had a lovely stay at this house. It was convenient to shopping and dining. The hostess and host were amiable and helpful. The bed was super comfortable and the patio was sweet. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Beautiful guesthouse with adjoining courtyard. Living room on the first floor with the kitchen comfortable and convenient. Second floor bedroom was very comfortable with an updated bathroom. A short walk to Melrose with all the retail it provides. We really loved our stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a great time at this place. There is so much room, it`s super clean and the interior design is lovely and welcoming. Check-in was easy and Jeff and Joy had left great suggestions for the area and where to eat etc in their welcome file. There`s so many great spots to check out nearby and plenty that is walkable! We loved our stay and would highly recommend this property! Thank you, Jeff and Joy. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Angela S. Feb 2020
The bungalow was very clean, comfortable, and convenient. The parking space was handy, although the weather was beautiful, we were able to walk most places. It was so quiet, you would never believe it was in the heart of LA. The owners greeted us when we arrived. They are lovely! Yes, we would like to go again!

Joy and Jeff are the ultimate hosts and their property is wonderful. The location could not be better for walking and exploring the many unique shops and varied eateries on Melrose and area. Close to the action of the city but on a very quiet street. The property was clean and well equipped. We look forward to returning soon.

This is a beautiful guesthouse in a fabulous location. It is very close to Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, Melrose Ave., Hollywood Blvd, Sunset Blvd., restaurants, shopping, and beaches. It is very well equipped with all the amenities. There are also two bicycles, a skateboard, coolers, and beach chairs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again if we return to LA. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Liesl S. Jul 2019
This vacation rental was amazing. The location was perfect. All the major Hollywood sites are easy to get to and made driving in LA less daunting. We also were able to get to the beach and Disney in a 1hr drive.
The home itself was clean and very comfortable. I loved having access to the backyard to enjoy the cool nights.
The best part was our hosts. They thought of everything. Shampoo, lotion, some water bottles, coffee, and a bottle of wine!
When I travel I only use vacation rentals and this one was by far my favorite. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We absolutely loved our Spanish-styled guest house! It was clean, completely updated and beautifully decorated. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful! The location is perfect...set on a lovely residential street and neighborhood, yet just a few blocks from Melrose Avenue. Plenty of shops, restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. We’ll definitely be back! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We were in LA to visit our children and grand children on the other side of Hancock Park. Our residence was centrally located, which made it very convenient. The courtyard was so nice in the morning with my cup of coffee listening to the birds call--a pleasant break from cold Chicago. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Lisa S. Aug 2018
This property is outstanding as are the hosts. It is beautifully maintained, very clean,easy walking distance to great restaurants and shops, easy access to freeways and a hidden gem! The hosts are happy to answer any and all questions about the surrounds and of course anything about the property. I cannot waitto stay here again.

Susan F. Aug 2018
What a great little place to stay while in LA! Centrally located and walking distance to coffee shops and restaurants. We didn’t have a car but they do provide a parking permit for one car for street parking. This little bungalow is in a quiet neighborhood, perfect for morning walks before getting on with your day. Everything was provided (except K cups - there is a Keurig coffee machine but we had to go out and buy our own, no big deal). Beautiful and very clean!

Marie J. Jul 2018
The house is in a beautiful, historic area of LA. Tucked away just off Melrose. It’s an easy drive to both Downtown, Hollywood and Beverly Hills. The house itself is spacious and tastefully decorated with everything needed for your stay. There was even a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. There’s plenty of outside space where you can sit for breakfast or drinks in the evening. It’s also an easy walk to some great shopping and local restaurants. I highly recommend this property.

Jane M. May 2018
This little `slice of Provence in LA was perfect. Lovely patio, large comfortable living/dining/kitchen with everything you could need. Hosts Joy and Jeff McManus were totally accommodating...felt like friends after an hour. They even let us host a 3rd birthday party for our little LA family.
We can`t wait to return. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Ashley T. Apr 2018
I don’t have a enough good things to say about this property!!! I was in town for a quick trip and doing business in the West Hollywood area. We did rent a car but didn’t need to use it. We took Uber’s everywhere and it was never more than $5. The house itself was in a nice quiet neighborhood the owner Joy greeted us upon arrival and was awesome! I have never slept in a more comfortable bed in my life!!! Next time in LA I will definitely be renting here again.

Unexpected finding in a great location. Absolutely loved the space. The space is comfortable and well done! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Claire A. Jan 2018
Guest house was very comfortable and spacious for the two weeks my husband and I spent there. The place was very clean, brightly lit, and met our needs just fine. Kitchen was well stocked plates dishes etc. even had some choices of tea and hot chocolate. Hosts provided a welcome bottle of champaign and chocolates. Very kind gesture. Hosts are kind, friendly and hospitable and made us feel very welcomed. We made a long move across country and it was so nice to get to know such a wonderful family and make new friends.
