Just minutes away from Hollywood and Sunset Boulevard sits an enchanting Los Angeles bed and breakfast appropriately named The Secret Garden. Nestled amid lush gardens, this hidden paradise is lovingly hosted by Raymond Bilbool, who was featured in the film "Off The Menu: The Closing of Chasen's". Raymond was a captain in the famous old Chasen's Restaurant until it closed in 1995. Originally from Rangoon, Burma, Raymond was also co-owner and cook at his own Greek restaurant for eight years.

Today Raymond uses his considerable talents to operate what he calls an oasis from the hustle and bustle of LA's Hollywood. You will agree when you enter the lush gardens with walking paths, secluded seating areas, fountains and exotic sculptures that you have found a private oasis.

Colorful is an understatement when describing the interiors of Secret Garden. Every room is a feast for the eyes where artistic morsels strike flavors of ageless design and architecture.

The foyer is decorated with Early California Murals with stained glass windows. The living room features a Chinese Spinach Jade Screen, an original Tiffany Daffodil Lamp and a fireplace by Bachelder. The dining room boasts a table and chairs of Rosewood and Mother of Pearl Inlays, a hand-carved dragon gong, and a Lalique Chandelier. The Media Room, where guests are encouraged to enjoy themselves, features a Steinway Baby Grand piano, a pink damask sofa and club chair and an 18th Century French chandelier.

The Secret Garden has one guest cottage with private bath, four guest rooms with private bath and one guest room with a shared bath. Decorated in rich tones each room is unique and very welcoming. Queen beds are just that. King beds are two twin beds in case you would like to separate them.

Your full, gourmet breakfast is prepared on a pre 1920's Magic Chef Stove with eight burners, three ovens, and two broilers. Raymond's own recipes which include Secret Garden Stuffed French Toast and Baked Oatmeal will thrill your tastebuds and can only be found at the Secret Garden.

Both the formal dining room and the newer breakfast room have large windows for a panoramic view of the gardens. If needed, your breakfast can be served in your room. Lunch or dinner can be catered for six to ten guests with prior notice.

After being pampered by Raymond, set out for all the legendary attractions of Hollywood and the Los Angeles area. Visit Universal Studios, Beverly Hills, Sunset Strip and Grauman's Chinese Theater. Hear live entertainment at The Grove or catch some stand-up comedy at the Comedy Store and Laugh Factory. Find the latest music at the Virgin Megastore

Although guest comments all include the beautiful setting and privacy of The Secret Garden, their main emphasis is on the warmth, hospitality and genuine friendliness of it's host Raymond Bilbool. He takes a personal interest in creating a wonderful experience for each guest.
