Hollywood Hills house description
This is a fantastically well-situated, brilliantly-furnished house in the heart of the HOLLYWOOD HILLS with a HUGE DECK AND KILLER VIEWS!!!!!
There's everything here from scrabble and ping pong to a brand new gas BBQ to a heated pool with security fence (removable). There are four bedrooms - one with a king size bed and three with queen size beds, three bathrooms plus a huge living room for entertaining that flows seamlessly into the open-plan kitchen/seating area.... a separate dining table for formal dining and several tables outside for eating/drinking.
It's five minutes down Laurel Canyon to Sunset Boulevard and West Hollywood. A few minutes further on and you're in Beverly Hills. Have a drink or a meal at the POLO LOUNGE or head down Rodeo Drive. Right there are Barney's Nieman Marcus and Saks.
And if you stay on Sunset Boulevard you'll end up at Pacific Coast Highway. To the left is Santa Monica - beaches, shopping, dining and the THIRD STREET PROMENADE. But if you turn right you will get to Malibu in ten minutes.
On the other side of the hill - at the bottom of Laurel Canyon- is Studio City's fabulous Ventura Boulevard and some of the best restaurants in Los Angeles as well as lots of hip stores and great markets. Drive a few minutes down Ventura Blvd and you'll come across both Universal Studios and Warner Bros.....and on to historic Downtown and Disney Hall, Union Station, colorful Olvera Street and Chinatown.

We rented this house for several days during the summer 2012. The location is good and close to Sunset, which is why we picked this Property, but found ourselves often stuck in traffic on Laurel Canyon. Great view but hard to relax on the deck due to loud noise from engine equipment running all day long. The house is spacious and comfortable but quite dark and cluttered, obviously decorated on a budget with a mixture of worn Mid-Century items and lots of Ikea stuff all over. We left the place better than we found it, but we were accused of damages we did not do. If you can, choose another house in this area because the Owner is out of touch with normal wear and tear and will hold you responsible and try anything to keep money from security deposits. We still had a nice vacation in L.A but shall not return to this particular home due to Owner's conduct.

Owner response: I take comments very seriously and in 10 years of renting to directors, actors, actresses and many families I've never had a single complaint ! Alas, these tenants were angry and upset a month before they even left France to come to LA because they'd rented my house through a rental company (that I will never use again) and then they found the VRBO website and discovered they could have rented my house directly through me at a cheaper rate thus saving money. The woman repeatedly called me sounding very agitated demanding that I " do something" but I pointed out that as she'd paid the deposit to Homes For the Moment already there was, unfortunately, absolutely nothing I could do. My house was in pristine condition filled with orchids and fresh flowers when they came and I take enormous pride in keeping it spotless and in excellent condition. There was noise from the pool filter--but only because they'd fiddled with the timer and when my pool man came 2 hours after their complaint he fixed the problem immediately so that it turned on at night as always. Being so centrally located of course there is traffic as there is in any big city on the planet. As for being dark--the house is absolutely flooded with light as many rooms have floor to ceiling windows and thus I have solar blinds in every room to help with the glare. They just have to be put up. And yes I do have some Ikea glasses and mugs in my stunning $70,000 custom kitchen and 2 red Ikea lamps in the 4th bedroom. Other lamps are from Modernica & Design Within Reach.. Many things are custom made- the stainless steel kitchen island, breakfast booth, the king sized master bed & the dining room table. The only mid century item is a curved sofa which was reupholstered 2 years ago. And yes, a vintage steel desk which is quite worn--which is why I bought it! I love the old patina. I never met the tenants - so to say they would not return due to my 'conduct' makes no sense. I NEVER HAD ONE DIME of their deposit. It was held by Homes For The Moment and I certainly never received a penny of it if indeed any deposit was withheld. They did keep the pool at 104 degrees -the highest setting - week after week even though the deal was 85 degrees. Thus by the time they left the pool heater broke and needed to be replaced. They were smokers and the dining room table was burned -but when I emailed the agent she never ever responded or indeed contacted me again. I will of course NOT use that company again.
Best LA Experience Ever!

We go to LA quite often for business and tire of hotels for weeks at a time. This house is truly outstanding! The design is beautiful, the amenities are everything one would need, and one can completely relax after a long day. The pool, deck and view are fabulous. The kitchen is fun to cook in, so sometimes we even make dinner, even though we have an expense account. There are sofas and flat-screen TVs everywhere. I highly recommend this house.

About the owner: I bought this house 8 years ago for two simple reasons - a massive living room with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors and the AMAZING PANORAMIC VIEW! The house actually needed a ton of work and a much larger deck and after nearly a year of renovating (I am an interior decorator) I finally got permission to extend the deck right out. The house is perfect now with concrete floors on the lower level--but fully carpeted in all four bedrooms on the upper level. There's a big kitchen with its own built-in sofa and breakfast booth plus a big flat screen TV. There's a cactus/native plant garden in the front courtyard...its quintessential laid-back California living in the Hollywood Hills. But cozy in winter with a big slate fireplace.

Why the Owner Chose Hollywood Hills:
It's incredibly central - but high enough in the hills to share the same magnificent views as Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty down the road on the famed Mulholland Drive. A few minutes away and you're on Sunset Blvd in the heart of Hollywood. There are also great hikes just moments away - cinemas..you name it. It's a location that's hard to beat in my opinion.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great weather, great privacy---it's close to anything you want to see or do in Los Angeles. Three minutes away is the Canyon Country Store which delivers-but another two minutes down the hill and you're on HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD. Just a mile to the left is Graumann's Chinese Theater and the Hollywood Highland cinema/mall complex. Two hundred yards further down and straight ahead is SUNSET BOULEVARD and a Trader Jo's, more cinemas and a Wolfgang Puck restaurant. Take a right on Sunset and you're instantly at the famed Chateau Marmont Hotel's outdoor dining patio...Keep going and you hit Sunset Plaza for shopping/dining and five minutes further down Sunset and you're at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
