Unique + Fabulous Stays in Los Angeles

cazador yurt air bnb

The Cazador Yurt in Mt. Washington

This property sleeps 4 guests, in the round, and would be a truly unique stay.

According to the host’s Airbnb description:

“A yurt is the Mongolian version of a teepee, invented by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia. Unlike the traditional version, this yurt sits on a raised platform with hardwood floors, windows, and modern amenities. The circular room is 16 feet in diameter, and the conical roof has a skylight directly over the bed. The setting is a rural oasis in the middle of the city: the yurt is nestled among 30 fruit trees on a half-acre lot, it’s classic bohemian California.”
