Recently restored and updated, gorgeously furnished HUGE (1500 sq ft) apartment. Includes full kitchen and laundry facilities. We are close to public transport and freeways. Located between Beverly Hills and DTLA, this place rocks!
Spacious, sunny, airy - hardwood floors, full sized kitchen with all you need for cooking and entertaining. Large Living Room and Dining Room/Workspace. Many previous guess have moved editing facilities, photo studio, et al into the space with still ample room to live.
Internet TV with Netflix and premium channels; free wifi; modern laundry facilities in back laundry room shared with owner apartment upstairs. Parking spot available for $10/day or $200/mo additional fee. Otherwise, parking free and unrestricted on the street which is easier in the daytime than late night.
This is a wonderful HUMAN experiment. Throw a combination of friends and travelers from all corners of the World (potatoes), each creative in their own special way (spices), into the same proximity (pot), and see what happens.
As much as I love and make use of all the wonderful aspects of 'Virtual Life' (internet, texting, social media, gazing endlessly into the deep blue screen :-), there's nothing like flavorful vegetables simmering, taking on each others’ aspects, together in the same ‘pot’, and the delicious ‘Human Stew’ that ensues.
Arden Pond is my personal residence. It is a 'compound' that houses the following listings within her gates: Hopewood, The Clubhouse, Sunny Central, Chill Artistic, Garden Room with View, Fun Artsy Spot and Budget Share. It is a place for people from everywhere to come together, create, collaborate and enjoy the pleasure of good conversation and real contact with other human beings. We have an international family of guests and on any given evening you likely find a happy bunch sitting in the communal outdoor living room - whether they are guests, friends or previous guests, it's a place of inspiration, love and sharing.
I have been an artist, photographer and filmmaker of one sort or another for all of my adult life. I have contributed significantly to the creation of such distinguished films as Reservoir Dogs, Secretary, and The Painted Veil, among others.
I have long been fascinated with the concept of Boutique Hotel meets Parisienne Salon. Arden Pond, Hopewood, and it's various satellites, are creative, fun-loving, healthy and supportive environments. As a guest you can have as much privacy as you desire; and are also invited to join in various "house family" dinners or outings.
Experience the MAGIC! Ask anyone who's stayed here!
Hope to see you soon!
