“Grandma's Home”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2003

On a recent trip to LA, we decided to stay at the Secret Garden. Our host Raymond was very gracious and gave us lots of ideas on what to during our stay in LA. Although Raymond was great, the place itself is in need of a little fix me up. It reminded me of being in my Grandmother's house, lots of nicknacks, the rooms were in need of a new paint job, the garden needed to be tended etc. When it came to breakfast, there was no choice...you eat what is placed in front of you. It would have been nice if there was a breakfast choice or even some muffins or something put out if you did not want the hot meal.
When you are paying $125 (US) a night a breakfast choice would have been nice. Also, if you are allergic to animals this is not the place to stay, as there are 3 cats in the house.

This is a MARVELOUS B&B. The owner is so hospitable and makes you feel as thou you belong in his home. The ambiance of the home and the gardens are wonderful. The owner is truly a real person who really does care about the comfort of each guest. Attention to detail and making each guest feel right at home is what it is all about here. We always stay here when we are in the Los Angeles area.

This is the place to stay in Hollywood! The Secret Garden BnB is a pink, charming art-deco house situated right in heart of West Hollywood, within walking distance to Sunset. The garden is ideal for enjoying morning coffee or just to relax, and when you have been there once, Raymond remembers exactly how you want your coffee. Raymond is a dear and delightful host and makes an absolutely delicious breakfast.
He is the perfect host, friendly and helpful and he truly makes you feel like home. We have now stayed there 3 times, and we will sure be back, again and again!

Absolutely the best place you can hope to stay if you're sick of hotels and want the warmth and humour of possibly the best host in existence.
It will make your holiday.

Spent 2 nights at this charming, rambling house off Sunset. The garden is ideal for enjoying morning coffee or as an oasis from the hustle of the city. Raymond is a dear and delightful host and makes a delicious breakfast (included in the price of your stay). He is accomodating. friendly and warm-and you are immediately made to feel like you are (truly) at home here. I will come back again and again!

The Secret Garden was a gem to find in the rough of Los Angeles. Was made to feel like I was home and fed like never before. The hosts were spectacular and accomodations warm and inviting. All this and walking distance from the Sunset Strip!
