This was our first stay at this quaint B and B but it will not be our last! Ahuva and Bob are wonderful hosts. They are warm, friendly, and truly made us feel like old friends. Breakfast was freshly made, beautifully presented, and Ahuva uses organic and wholesome ingredients. Rooms are beautifully appointed, well kept, and quite comfortable. The location... More

A perfect contrast to jazzed-up LA. Beautiful rooms (Morning room + Terrace room) plus balcony filled with flowers and other plants. Spacious, quiet, tasteful, but a bit expensive. Best: the laidback feeling, just a block away from myriads of great restaurants (try Sushi Ruko on 3d), great beds, good breakfast. Worst: everything is far away in LA, especially here.

We recently stayed at this lovely B&B, and had an absolutely wonderful time! Bob and Ahuva are terrific and gracious hosts, and prepared delicious breakfasts each morning that were tailored to some of the dietary restrictions in our group. The house is gorgeous and located on a quiet street that is close to excellent restaurants in West Hollywood, and the... More

After struggling to find somewhere in LA that wasn't ridiculously expensive, or in a dangerous neighbourhood, I came across this gem on Trip Advisor. I'm so thankful I did. Bob and Ahuva are the best hosts you could ever ask for. They have an incredible knowledge of the city, friendly and charming but not overbearing and the home cooked breakfasts... More

Location brought us here the first trip - the B&B is located in ‘Bevery Grove’, between Beverly Hills and the Grove, and steps from our favorite gourmet lunch and take-away, Joan’s on 3rd. The comfort and self-sufficiency of the cottage, and the spirit of the innkeepers bring us back. Ahuva and Bob are the soul of hospitality – generous, kind,... More

We have been to LA many times, staying everywhere from chain hotels to small inns. This place is unique. It's a home on a quiet street in a residential neighborhood, but it is literally in the middle of the city and convenient to many attractions. We walked to Farmers Market, the Grove, Beverly Center, and the museums along Wilshire --... More

I found this B&B accidentally, and I really wasn't sure what to expect. I arrived in LA after a 20 hour flight, was totally exhausted, and didn't get to exit the airport 3 hours later (immigration, custom,xmas time, etc). This B&B is in a totally non assuming residential area, about 10 minutes walk to The Groove, and Century City. Its... More

We have stayed in many B and B's over the past 40 years and I have to say this is one of my favorites. The terrace room was perfect and our hosts Bob and Ahuva are so nice and accommodating and respectful. Breakfast was delicious (on our private Terrace) and everything was super comfortable, spacious and a treat for us.... More

My husband and I enjoyed our second stay at this lovely B&B while in LA recently to spend time with our son and daughter-in-law and their new baby. Suffice it say that the #1 rating is well-deserved. Not only are guests offered a sumptuous organic breakfast (fresh yogurt, berries, oatmeal, eggs, croissants, coffee, juice) cooked to order every morning, but... More

This review is way way overdue - we stayed in this b&b in december last year. We drove a comfortable 25 mins to this cottage after taking our car near the airport and Bob was already outside to welcome us into his house. It was like living in your best friend's place - the bed was super comfortable (we stayed... More
