We are also located on the other end of the property so we can help if you need anything, yet far enough away that you can go undisturbed if you prefer. Occasionally we also rent out our house but both properties have separate access.

There’s not many words to explain how much we loved Tona! She was helpful in all aspects and you could truly tell that she cares about her guests. We had a problem with the internet the first night, we messaged her asking if she could...More

About the neighbourhood
Highland Park has so many new spots opening I can't keep up. The gatehouse is close to both Figeroa and York which have at least 10 new eating and drinking spots. Highland Park Bowling is magnificent. ETA is great for cocktails, The Cave is a Tequila bar with a rocky vibe. The bluebird is really great and Kitchen mouse is a Vegetarian breakfast and lunch spot that's menu is inventive yet down to earth and now very popular. That's all on Fig, York has just as much going on and between Ave 50 - 54 it's become a fun place to walk and people watch in the evening. The Dodgers are 15 mins away and Staples Center with the Kings, Lakers and Clippers is just downtown.
Getting around
You can walk to the Metro Goldline that runs to downtown LA and beyond. Or drive with the 110 freeway at the bottom of the hill, giving you direct access to Pasadena (10 mins) and the whole city beyond downtown (10 mins) away. I avoid rush hour driving and generally expert to get to the beach in 40 - 60 mins. You can even take the Metro but it's 80 minutes door to ocean.
Car advised
