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 Los Angeles area

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.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Contemporary Cottage is a gem to stay at. Hosts Michael & Laura have thought of everything and it shows the minute you walk in. Beautiful property and grounds, well equipped kitchen, all the comforts of home you need, peaceful, close to attractions, very peaceful setting. You are asked what you may like to have for a beverage before arrival, helpful information is ready in a binder at your fingertips. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving week and will be back Christmas week! If I could give a 10 Star Rating I would!

Celebrating our daughter's "Quarter Century" birthday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed the privacy and retreat-like setting of the Contemporary Cottage and the hospitality of Michael and Laura that is evident throughout the attention to detail in the décor and amenities they offer. We felt like the location was great for a walk at anytime of the day, and there was plenty to do within a short driving distance. Our daughter chose Miceli's Italian Restaurant for her birthday dinner. Although the food was very good, it's the entertainment that excels--pianist, drummer, and servers that sing from opera to cabaret selections. We would definitely recommend the Contemporary Cottage and plan to stay here again when next visiting our daughter.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The minute you walk into the backyard you feel relaxed. The cottage was a great home base for our five day stay. Location was great and close to everything we wanted to do. The cottage was charming and spacious for the two of us. I was relaxed the whole time I was here. Will stay here again when we come back.

Thanks,

Leanne & Barbara

Owner's Response: Lydia and Logan! It was wonderful to have you two stay here during Logan's business meeting trip. Both of you are a delight to chat with and get to know. Maybe next time, the rest of your family can make the trip. Logan is a talented singer and musician and I love his renditions of One Call Away and Black Bird. After Ava met Logan, she told me she thought he was "Adorable."

Fabulous private hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My son and I loved staying at the fabulous cottage. Everything was perfect for us, comfortable, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Location was terrific, really quiet neighborhood yet super convenient for Burbank, Hollywood and access to all major roads. Super hosts too. The garden and pool setting were fantastic, relaxing and very welcoming - great to relax in with guests. We'll certainly be back... Thanks much
