**Thank you for our SUPERHOST Status!!**

The "Hen House" is our remodeled mini guest cabin (150 sq ft) in the backyard of our 1919 Spanish-style house purchased from Eartha Kitt and her then husband.

Our converted garage first had plans to be a fancy chicken coop, when we decided it was better suited to house our friends, family and music clients visiting Los Angeles.

Our 150 sq ft space includes a queen pillow top mattress, a kitchenette (mini fridge, toaster, Keurig, electric kettle, hot plate, convection oven, microwave, cookware, silverware, glasses), tv (local channels + Amazon Firestick with Hulu, NetFlix, Sling etc), wifi, super high ceilings and french doors. We also provide a small selection of Keurig coffee cups (to purchase more, Ralphs is two blocks away), sweetners, teas, creamer, snacks and water. Our Hen House is a relaxing, comfortable and peaceful place in the heart of the city.

Please enjoy our completely remodeled spa-like bathroom. Relax in our newly tiled shower (for two) after a great day of sightseeing! The bamboo "forest" outside adds to the peaceful zen vibe. It comes stocked with towels, a hair dryer, toilet paper and hotel-size soap, body wash, shampoo and lotion. NOTE: The bathroom is not in the Hen House. It is about 10 steps away attached to our music studio, "next door". It is private and you do not share it with anyone. Think of it as glamping! Our guests do!

The Hen House is professionally cleaned prior to your stay. The bed is made up "Hotel Style" with triple sheeting.

The Hen House is equipped with a ceiling fan and a wall air conditioner unit. We also have an exhaust fan for cooking. We have windows at the top of the Hen House that are great for letting out hot air. You can find a plug-in heater in the Hen House and one the bathroom. California currently has a voluntary call for consumers
to conserve electricity - please be mindful of the power you use!

We have a working music studio on the property. As Amani is a Grammy-winning studio engineer, producer, composer and DJ, many artists come to have sessions. Perhaps you may run into someone? :) If you are an artist and need a studio, please let us know for a special rate.

Our backyard is now officially a Certified Wildlife Habitat and a Monarch Waystation! Although we live in the city, we do have a flock of wild parrots (that usually fly overhead around 12 noon), blue jays, a random duck or two, woodpeckers, raccoons, opossums and hawks. We also have a brook that runs through the neighborhood.

The Hen House also includes a private patio with a bistro table for two, lounge chairs, a gas bbq and a charcoal bbq and an organic garden with various fruits & veggies for you to pick (depending on what's ready and in season!). Feel free to really rest and relax - grill outside, practice yoga (we even supply a yoga mat!), get in some sun or read a book on your patio. Our sunny weather practically allows this year round!

We are here to help you, though we try our best to stay out of your way! Many of our guests love their privacy while others like a more hands-on approach. Please let us know which you prefer!

We live in Longwood Highlands, a historic district located in Mid City Los Angeles. We have a wonderful mix of neighbors of diverse cultures and ages. Many of our neighbors are professional writers, music producers, tv producers, musicians and local business owners. We have a Ralphs grocery store, Planet Fitness gym, Starbucks, Ulta Beauty, Subway, GNC, Jamba Juice, Wing Stop, Pizza Rev, CVS and more all within walking distance. Our neighborhood is a safe one, but as in any large city, please watch your surroundings. Please keep our property gate locked at all times.

We are within walking distance of the Pico/Rimpau Transit Center (local bus station) where you can catch a bus to pretty much anywhere in Los Angeles. UBER also comes within 5-10 minutes.

Our guests are usually dog lovers as we have a 100+ pound pit bull. He is super sweet and just might lick you to death if you are lucky. :) He loves making new friends! We also dog sit a 1 year old Golden Retriever once a month - she just might lick you to death too! Both love making new friends - but we do try to keep them away from guests to not bother them during their stay.

We "inherited" two cats when we moved into the property years ago. They are both outdoor cats and usually hang around the front of our house and at our neighbor's. If you are allergic: They have no interest in going in the back of the property, where the Hen House is located, and do not use the furniture. They consider the backyard, the dogs' domain. If you are not allergic, and want to interact, Marley and Moon may come up to greet you if you call them. Otherwise, they keep their distance. They also get routine flea medicine.

If you have a car, we have ample street parking. There is street cleaning on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 9am 12pm.

Our gardener comes every Wednesday between 10am-12pm - please keep that in mind if you sleep in!

PLEASE NOTE:
1. To get to the Hen House, you must walk on uneven grass. Please keep this in mind if you wear heels or are not steady on your feet.
2. To ensure the safety of our music studio, we do have security cameras on the property. There are NO cameras inside the Hen House nor in the bathroom.
3. The Hen House is only 150 sq ft. If you are not sure how small that is, we suggest you find out prior to your stay! It will work for long-term stays, if you are comfortable with the size. Our longest stay, so far, has been 40 straight days!
4. NO parties. NO outside guests (unless OK'd by us). Our house rules were put in place to keep you and our property safe!

Beautiful and well cultivated space. Love the oasis backyard and although the bathroom is not in the same space as the bed/kitchen, it was a beautiful and very short hop to get to...also such a beautiful bathroom so it made it like a little oasis within an oasis. Definitely would recommend the space and hosts.

Kerith and Amani's place was an interesting one... on one hand it's a sanctuary and on the other it's infested with bugs. Several spiders were found upon arrival in the bathroom, which is located outside the bedroom, and I took care of them the first night because it was late and we were tired. I sent a message through airbnb to our hosts letting them know of this and all was good through communication, but by the next day the spiders had come back again. In addition to the spider issue, we had issues with the toilet flushing and it let's just say it was noticed after the fact. This wasn't the case until the morning we left and were in a rush to check out, but still incredibly disgusting for what we were paying for. The room itself was fairly basic. Much of the room is taken up by a large, comfortable bed and the rest is floorspace and countertop, which both come in handy. I cannot say I had a pleasant stay here whatsoever because of all of our issues and would not recommend to anyone traveling out to LA.

As an Airbnb Superhost, for the past two years, who has hosted over 100 guests - I have only had to write a negative review one other time. Reviews are the major factor on Airbnb - they affect people - so, I don't take this lightly. I don't believe that Connor & Danielle were well-suited for our space and our rules. (1) CLEANLINESS: They did not leave our space clean upon check-out. Many coke cans (open & full as well as empty), pizza boxes (with pizza inside attracting gnats), maxi pad wrappers, candy wrappers, dirty socks, a backpack and other items were left on the floor, by the bed and strewn all over). In the bathroom, the toilet has urine all over it and trash is overflowing and spilling on the floor. When we opened the toilet we found feces everywhere - in the bowl, on the sides of the bowl and on the toilet seat. The plunger was also left with feces on it. I had to tip our cleaner an extra $40 just to touch it. We felt completely violated that we allowed someone on our property who would treat our space in such a disrespectful way. (2) COMMUNICATION: While Connor communicated very well in regards to adding an extra day, arriving from the airport etc., wanting to meet me etc., when we sent a message (2x) about how to lock our gate, we did not get a reply nor did they follow our instructions. Connor also, politely, let us know about spiders in our bathroom (it is an outside bathroom) - the next morning we had our exterminator come out however they proceeded to leave the bathroom door wide open to the outside, on several occasions, for hours on end. (3) OBSERVANCE OF HOUSE RULES: One of our rules is to clean our property before checking out (take out trash etc). That was not done, even remotely (we took pictures). Another is to turn lights off when leaving (except for obviously security lights for nighttime etc.). They checked out with all lights on and the day the exterminator came, they had both lights on in the bathroom (as well as the fan) after they left to be gone all day. A third is to keep our gate locked at all times, that was not done either. It doesn't feel good to write this - we love hosting for our guests. However, it also didn't feel good to inspect our space after check out and see how our place was treated either.

I stayed at The Hen House for four nights while visiting my daughter who is a student at USC. The location was perfect for getting back and forth to the campus (only about a 15-20 min drive even at high traffic times) so would highly recommend to other USC parents needing a home base for a short or extended stay. While the space is indeed small it was absolutely perfect for a single traveler or couple who don't mind being in close quarters. The bed was super comfortable and the little kitchen was perfect for brewing some early morning coffee or having a late night snack. I especially appreciated that the mini fridge was stocked with fresh fruit and both bottles and a Brita pitcher with cold water! The only downside is that the bathroom is separate from the unit so, as other guests have noted, you do have to go outside each time you need to use the facilities. But, the beautifully tiled rain shower and spa-like atmosphere certainly make up for that. My only regret was that I was so busy during my stay that I didn't have the chance to sit out on the patio and enjoy the beautiful garden complete with lime trees (which I had never seen living in Chicago :-). I am so glad I chose The Hen House for my first Airbnb experience and couldn't have found a better host. Kerith was extremely responsive when questions came up and made me feel right at home. I will definitely be back!

We loved the Hen House! Very comfortable, very safe and very clean. Communication with Amani and Kerith was fast, efficient and easy. It is walking distance to shops and restaurants and in a very central location. The Hen House is well equipped with everything you need - just like a hotel except better as there were snacks too and free parking! The bathroom is spacious and luxurious and only a few steps from the Hen house. Bring a robe if you are shy but the yard is very private! Lovely patio to enjoy LA`s great weather. We will definitely stay here on our next visit! Cheers!
