This is a private, sound proofed, pool house with no attached bathroom or kitchen in the grounds of a quirky 50's house. It is situated at the end of a quiet, tree-lined street in a fantastic Sherman Oaks-adjacent neighborhood called Valley Glen.
The pool house is at the end of an oversized yard with roses, succulents and plenty of trees including a lemon tree and an orange tree. The bedroom is furnished with a double bed and the living room has a pull out sofa bed too. It also has a microwave, coffee maker, a small refrigerator and a TV with a DVD player. The front door looks out to a large, unheated, sparkling swimming pool with two sun loungers.
I couldn't put it better than one of my guests reviews which said, "Beyond the facade of an otherwise unremarkable exterior lies the realm of a truly enchanted hidden oasis.
The grounds on which the Cozy Pool House and the Guest House stands provides an instant transformation from city stress to a relaxed nature environment. From lemon trees and pink flower blossoms to an open grass garden, from squirrels scurrying over twisted tree trunks to hanging string lights at night, it is more akin to a camp site that has been decorated by a movie set designer.
And as if to conspire with the natural elements, when the full moon had shown, it shined directly above this garden.
The shared bathroom is in the main house, it has a large bath tub and a wonderful shower. If you need to use an oven you are welcome to use the one in the main house also. I have a medium sized dog who loves to spend time in the back yard with my children. He is very friendly and loving. I am happy to host a pet but there will be an additional cleaning fee.

I am a Brit living in Los Angeles, I came for three months and never went home! I now have a family here and love living in my Oasis in the Valley. I love spending time in the garden with my son, daughter and two dogs. And in the summer there is nothing we love more than lying in the hammock or splashing in the pool. Our two dogs, Harley and Ziggy are large but sooo friendly. Harley is a bit of an old man now but he still knows how to make sure you give him some love if you are nearby! I work as a personal assistant in the Entertainment industry so I have a large library of DVD's that you are welcome to borrow! I dream of being the hostess with the mostess but realistically I have a baby who has to take priority so I will endeavor to make sure you are fully self sufficient and that you feel like my home is your home and will help with everything within my power! I am not a fan of waste and try my best to be environmentally friendly. Hence I provide drinking water but don't put plastic bottles of water in my guest houses. Please feel free to ask if there is anything you need.
