Overview

About the property

Beautifully Maintained And Furnished Home In A Safe And Trendy LA Neighborhood

My cozy Spanish home was built in 1923 and is fully renovated with 2 bedrooms, 2 and a half bathrooms, dining and living room, a great kitchen with breakfast bar, hardwood floors and tiles throughout (1700 sq. feet / 520 sq meters). I keep my home very clean and uncluttered. The decor is eclectic with treasures, art and furniture that I collected while traveling all over the world. Build-in speakers are in every room as well as in the garden. All you have to do is hook-up your iPod. The house is not suitable for young children. Unfortunately, I can't take bookings for children under the age of 12. However, I can make exceptions for newborns.

The spa-like garden is completely private with table tennis, sun loungers and an outside dinning area that can be heated at night. The heated cabana style patio is furnished with luxurious Restoration Hardware furniture and succulent potted plants. All areas of the house and garden are well lit during the night.

The main house and guesthouse are both fully set up with alarm systems and surveillance cameras if you choose to use them. Free Wi-Fi all around the house, 42-inch high-definition TV with 800 cable TV channels. Washer and dryer, dishwasher, large fridge and freezer, state-of-the-art Viking stove with oven. There is a Nespresso machine for free cappuccino and espresso in the kitchen and the drinking water is Kangen-Ionized and filtered. Better than bottled water! Microwave, plates, dishes, pots and pans, glasses, cups. Catering and cooking can be arranged for a minimum of 4 guests. The house lends itself well for entertaining and the outdoor dinning area seats 12.

Other rental options:

I permanently live on the premises in the guesthouse, but for complete privacy, I can vacate the property. However, you will benefit from me being there since I keep an eye on things and 'fairy cleaning' will take place when you are out of the house.

In addition to the main house, you can rent the guesthouse under the following options:

- Rent guesthouse, 2 bedrooms on ground floor, four guests maximum (per night)

- Rent bedroom #1, two guests maximum (per night)

- Rent bedroom #2, two guests maximum (per night)

- Rent the guesthouse, both floors, four guests maximum (per night)

If interested in renting the guesthouse WITHOUT the main house, you have the option to:

- Rent guesthouse, 2 bedrooms on ground floor, four guests maximum (per night). *Extra guest fee: each, per night, beyond two guests.

I have included photos of the bedrooms in the guesthouse and marked them as “GUESTHOUSE”.

About Adriana van de Pol

By profession I am a Fashion Jewelry Designer, Manufacturer and Importer. I also design interiors and am a renowned Flea Market Junkie. I am passionate about Yoga, Los Angeles, good food and suffer from wanderlust.

I like to surround myself with inspiring people and entertain at my little oasis in the middle of Hollywood, dubbed 'THE BEST HOTEL IN TOWN' by friends and family.

These are my travel priorities for no-stars or 5-star destinations: 1) a good bed 2) a very clean bathroom 3) a spotless kitchen 4) a friendly and helpful host 5) a safe and authentic neighborhood 6) a unique and meaningful experience to remember.

My home is a place for happiness and personal well-being; be it work, entertainment, cooking, exercising or self-pampering. Staying at home is the new going out!

I have thoughtfully converted my home into an ultimate destination, both as a personal hide out and a public place for all my visitors.

My personal all-time travel favorites are: 1) Bali, Ubud 2) African Safaris 3) India, Rajasthan and Goa 4) The South of France 5) Italy, the Amalfi coast 6) New York

7) Big Sur & Napa Valley, California.

Adriana van de Pol purchased this house in 2009

Why Adriana van de Pol chose Los Angeles

When I moved to LA 5 years ago, I looked at 200 homes to buy. This house is so special. The flow and layout, location and possibilities are endless.

You can enjoy total privacy or hang out together on the communal patio and sun loungers. The kitchen bar is always popular and when you feel like stretching your legs you may choose to walk the green and safe neighborhood by foot or challenge someone for a game of table tennis in the garden.

There is a lot to do only minutes away, but staying in can be just as good as going out. All I know is I love this sunny palm-tree shaded Oasis and coming from freezing Holland and England I feel blessed living here and hope to share my home and surroundings with you in the middle of Los Angeles where great thing happen!

What makes this house unique

I Live on the compound on the top floor of the large guesthouse. I am always here to help with anything you may need or questions you may have. However I can move out of the guesthouse upon your request. You can rent 1 or 2 additional bedrooms in my guesthouse. Please read about that in the description.

I can cater for groups in and out doors. I teach basic fashion jewelry classes at my loft on the top floor. I can provide massage and beauty treatments and yoga. I am a member of Soho House and can get you a table at this exclusive club. As a membership requirement, I have to be invited too:). I have had many unexpected Soho House meals with my guests and have made friends along the way.

I respect my guests and love hosting, but know when to leave you in peace to enjoy your privacy.

I speak English, Dutch, German, and kitchen French.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Scott and his wife and friends have been such gracious guests, the house was spotless when they left and they were a joy to host in my home. Needles to say I recommend them and hope to see them again in the future !

Beautiful and quiet !

  • 5 of 5

This is a tastefully decorated home that would help you relax and enjoy your vacation. We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The backyard deck area was as beautiful & relaxing as the inside of the home. A large kitchen with everything you need. We only made breakfast one day but all the amenities were there had we been inclined to do more dining at home. The owner, Adriana was very responsive from the moment we booked the home. If you love a lot of natural light then you will have it in this home. So much room for a family of four to relax in. I definitely would recommend this home !!!

A lovely, enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four rented this beautiful home for a week in April. The house is impeccably decorated, the yard was delightful, and the location was perfect for us. We were able to walk to a grocery store, and the drive to Universal Studios, Griffith Park, the zoo, and the Walk of Fame was less than 30 minutes. Paramount was only 5 minutes away. Disneyland, about an hour. We had no problems with parking or anything related to the home. Construction noise very early in the morning bothered us only once or twice, and the owner was very accessible and responsive to any questions or concerns we had. A 5 star stay!
