Charming and spacious upstairs bungalow in very safe historic neighborhood. Situated behind a massive craftsman house, this little gem is a great hideaway close to restaurants, coffee shops, markets, Hollywood, Larchmont, DTLA, Museums and Theaters.
Super clean, full amenities and very central. We are about ten minutes to Hollywood, Downtown, West Hollywood and Beverly Hills and not far from everything else in Los Angeles. Parking is easy, free and unrestricted.

I do not live on the property but am available to my guests by phone or text 24/7 for help, recommendations and any issue that might arise.
We also have social, cultural, musical, artsy invitations that are often shared with the guests, with no obligation to participate. My property s very close-by and a bit more of a social artsy 'scene' with outdoor living and work areas. Guests of the Bungalow are welcome to come and hang out there and to participate in the social aspect if they so desire.
Any booking over one month will require a mandatory monthly cleaning at the rate of $65 to cover the cost of the housekeeper to thoroughly clean, wash the linens and towels, etc. If you desire a more regular cleaning please let us know.
No smoking indoors! Feel free to smoke outside but please clean up afterwards.

This is a wonderful HUMAN experiment. Throw a combination of friends and travelers from all corners of the World (potatoes), each creative in their own special way (spices), into the same proximity (pot), and see what happens.
As much as I love and make use of all the wonderful aspects of 'Virtual Life' (internet, texting, social media, gazing endlessly into the deep blue screen :-), there's nothing like flavorful vegetables simmering, taking on each others’ aspects, together in the same ‘pot’, and the delicious ‘Human Stew’ that ensues.
Arden Pond is my personal residence. It is a 'compound' that houses the following listings within her gates: Hopewood, The Clubhouse, Sunny Central, Chill Artistic, Garden Room with View, Fun Artsy Spot and Budget Share. It is a place for people from everywhere to come together, create, collaborate and enjoy the pleasure of good conversation and real contact with other human beings. We have an international family of guests and on any given evening you likely find a happy bunch sitting in the communal outdoor living room - whether they are guests, friends or previous guests, it's a place of inspiration, love and sharing.
I have been an artist, photographer and filmmaker of one sort or another for all of my adult life. I have contributed significantly to the creation of such distinguished films as Reservoir Dogs, Secretary, and The Painted Veil, among others.
I have long been fascinated with the concept of Boutique Hotel meets Parisienne Salon. Arden Pond, Hopewood, and it's various satellites, are creative, fun-loving, healthy and supportive environments. As a guest you can have as much privacy as you desire; and are also invited to join in various "house family" dinners or outings.
Experience the MAGIC! Ask anyone who's stayed here!
Hope to see you soon!
