About Michael and Laura Palazzolo

Hello! We are Laura and Michael Palazzolo.

We were both born and raised in Los Angeles, but we have been fortunate to have traveled all over the world, and we look forward to hosting travelers from near and far.

We met working at Universal Studios Tour may years ago, and we still live only a few minutes away from one of the most popular tourist attractions in Los Angeles.

Laura knows a lot about homes as a director for many shows on HGTV (Home and Garden Television) - She is currently working on the network's #1 show 'House Hunters' and travels all over the country on a regular basis.

Michael also used to work in Television production, and he is now devoting his time and attention to being an excellent vacation rental host.

Our favorite American city besides Los Angeles is Chicago, IL and our favorite vacation destination is Hawaii. Michael's heritage is Italian, and Italy is our very favorite country to visit!

And the current song that that makes us happy is what else: 'HAPPY' by Pharell Williams! And that is how we want you to feel when you check in and check out of our 'Contemporary Cottage'!

Michael and Laura Palazzolo purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Michael and Laura Palazzolo chose Studio City

This cozy cottage is tucked away in the back of a historic property built in 1936, and has some Hollywood history attached to it. The original owners were famous movie stars named Joan Blondell and Dick Powell. At the height of their career, they bought this Sherman Oaks ranch as a 'country home' that originally included horse stables and a chicken coup. This special home has had only four owners in over 70 years. The current owners are the Palazzolo Family who have happily lived here for more then 20 years.

Wonderful, private and peaceful cottage

  • 5 out of 5
This is a lovely property, very comfortable and fully stocked ... we were only sorry that we didn't have time to enjoy the beautiful swimming pool! The hosts are extremely helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed. We will definitely stay in the Contemporary Cottage the next time we are in LA

Perfect

  • 5 out of 5
My granddaughter and I stayed here for a week visit to Los Angeles. Perfect location for us, centrally located near Hollywood, Griffith Park and the Getty Center. This was our first experience with vacation rental and was so much nicer than hotels! Michael and Laura were lovely hosts, Michael was very knowledgeable about the area. We mostly prepared our own healthy meals in this cozy and comfortable cottage, but there were plenty of eateries nearby. My grandgal said "it was the most comfortable bed ever". Located in a beautiful, safe, peaceful neighborhood, I loved this whole experience! Thanks for sharing your cute, clean, comfy little contemporary cottage with us!

Cute, clean, charming

  • 5 out of 5
"So cute" was my first thought upon seeing this cottage. "" was my second. Third, upon opening the door and walking around, was "this place is immaculately clean!"
Wanting something ohter than a hotel during a week long college exploration trip with my teenage daughter, I found the perfect spot in Michael and Laura's Contemporary Cottage. The pool was perfect for cooling off after long days walking around campuses. The kitchen allowed us to eat healthy breakfasts and the occasional dinner (once we discovered the cafe Lemonade cooking dinner was out and getting healthy, yummy takeout was in! Thank you Michael for letting us know about this place!). Having the bedroom and living room allowed my daughter and I to have our own space when we were getting on each other's nerves. The location was ideal -- only a few blocks to the 101 and all the ohter freeways we needed to look from Chapman in Orange to Pepperdine in Malibu (and lots in between).
Michael and Laura were great hosts -- friendly and helpful while still giving us more than enough privacy.
Next time we're in LA for more than a night, we'll be staying here.

Universal Studios is only 5 miles away, plus Griffith Park and Los Angeles Zoo is only 7 miles away. There are wonderful hiking trails nearby. Hollywood and the Hollywood Bowl is 8 miles away – and just 17 miles to the Santa Monica and the Pacific Ocean.

Disneyland is 40 miles away, and we suggest making that an all day activity.
