What you need to know: This space is generally available for bookings that begin before 9am on weekdays. I can offer a one-time price to guests with special requests such as weekend rates, additional services or equipment, increased capacity, holiday pricing, and other special accommodations. Let me know what your needs are and we'll work it out. :) Overview: Perfect for photo shoots, interviews, and music videos, this cottage sits on a ridge in Laurel Canyon with views of the Hollywood sign. Natural light pours in through stained glass windows, skylights and doors. The home belonged to Oscar-nominated costume designer Theadora Van Runkle (Godfather 2, Bonnie and Clyde, Troop Beverly Hills), who integrated set pieces into her home, like a living room inside a 30ft wine barrel. An expansive tree-lined deck has plenty of space for gear, tables for lunch, and an outdoor kitchen with a sink and fridge. A 10-ft cedar dining table sits under market lights. In another area, a sofa set sits under umbrellas. There's power across the entire deck and Christmas lights around the rose arches in the garden, for night shoots. Here's a link to an Architectural Digest slideshow of the house before the 2015 remodel https://www.architecturaldigest.com/gallery/laurel-canyon-cottage-home-slideshow/all Travelers: The house is in the hills above West Hollywood near Laurel Canyon. West Hollywood is the closest neighborhood on the Los Angeles side of the hills and Studio City is the closest city north. Santa Monica and Downtown are both 35-40 mins from the venue and Hollywood and Beverly Hills are about 25 minutes away. There are a number of Airbnb and VRBO listings very close to the venue. Los Angeles is serviced by LAX and Burbank Airport. Burbank is closer and more convenient to the venue, but is a much smaller airport with limited flights. West Hollywood - Mondrian ($300s) Andaz (Hyatt) ($300s) Studio City - Hilton Universal ($200s) The Garland ($200s)
Laurel Canyon prohibits smoking due to wild fires. All timing includes set up and clean up. Please do not arrive early, even if you plan to pay for that time, because I open the house exactly at start time. If you need to start earlier just let me know. :) Please factor breakdown and clean-up in your booking hours. Peerspace bills in half-hour increments. As for clean up... please leave the space in the condition that you found it. That means all small items and large furniture can be moved, but must be returned. If you used dishes, please wash them. Pack out any trash that does not fit in trash cans. It's easiest to take photos on your phone to remember where all the small objects go. Thank you for taking care of our space!
Dana and her home over exceeded our expectations! I was scouting for a location to film on the same day and I came across Dana’s home and Dana immediately got in contact with me soon as I sent her a message. Her house was absolutely stunning and exactly what we were looking for. I will definitely be using her home for future projects! Thanks again, Dana!
