About Sherri Carlson

I am an acting parent and bought a home that was convenient for our lifestyle. Close to auditions, studios, acting coaches. We are in the center of it all for a kid actor. My husband is a movie catering chef and has an awesome grill station in our yard that our guests are free to use. On his days off, he cooks for everyone, including you.

Sherri Carlson purchased this studio in 2013

Best place I have stayed since I started home away

  • 5 of 5

I kinda don't want to share this place with anyone, but they deserve a great review. Warm and welcoming people that own the place. They will work with you on your schedule and also they were very accommodating. Next time I am in LA, I will more then likely stay here if the schedule is open for me.

Great cozy and friendly place

  • 5 of 5

Sherri was an excellent host -- always available and ready to help with any questions about the studio or getting on in LA. For a small kitchen, it had everything I needed to get by, plus offers from Sherri to use the high-end grill outside or borrow a juicer etc. Guests were made to feel welcome using the outside space and Sherri's bikes, which was all a bonus. Overall, for the price, couldn't have expected a more comfortable and equipped place. Would definitely recommend to anyone needing a temporary place to stay in LA.

My husband and I booked a studio for a 2 week stay. The studio is located behind the property owner's house. The owner and his wife were very kind and respectful of our privacy. The studio was very snug but had all the necessary amenities. We really enjoyed our stay.

Enjoyed staying in this clean, comfortable, relaxing, and quiet studio !! It has everything a single to 2 people need. The owners are super friendly and kind and look after their place very well. The studio is totally affordable and close to everything Hollywood and LA have to offer!! Can't wait to come out and visit in future because I know who I will be calling. If you are looking for a clean , quiet , and affordable place to stay you do not want to pass up this studio!!!
