Hollywood apartment description

This exotic apartment is a hideaway amid the action and fun of Hollywood. The lush back garden is a wonderful place to read a book while enjoying a refreshment – the warm Southern California sun streaking through the tall trees. Staying here is worth a trip to Hollywood all by itself, but with the attraction of all that LA has to offer virtually blocks away, the apartment is part of a truly special house. A 1920's cottage with windows everywhere that let in beautiful morning and evening light, staying here is a wonderful experience.

Listed rates are based on a 1 or 2 person occupancy.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1962

                      About the owner: I have known this house since I was a child and always had a deep attachment to it. There is something magical about it. I am a world traveler particularly smitten by the equatorial regions. Planting the tropical garden made this a very happy place to return to when I came home from my travels. I lived away for years--first in the San Francisco Bay Area where I studied art and then in London where I studied fashion design but Hollywood and this house always pulled me back. I live on the property, so it is more than a business to me. Decorating the apartment was an act of love. Designing and planting the garden (which continually changes) is an act of obsession.

                      Why the Owner Chose Hollywood:
                      This house is a hideaway amid the action and fun of Hollywood. Wake up to the music of the birds. The lush back garden is a wonderful place to read a book while enjoying a refreshment – the warm Southern California sun streaking through the tall trees. Staying here is worth a trip to Hollywood all by itself, but with the attraction of all that LA has to offer virtually blocks away, Willetta is a truly special house. A 1920's cottage with windows everywhere that let in beautiful morning and evening light, staying at Willetta is a wonderful experience. The separate apartment (which is the one available) made this rental a friendly place. When you are feeling sociable you can mix. When you want to be alone, you have privacy. I am happy when guests take advantage of the barbeque and the garden which makes indoor/outdoor living possible here. To learn more about the area, check this out: http://www.hollywooddell.com/

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      • Self-contained separate apartment in private 1920’s house facing garden (see picture to understand the lay-out) • Bedroom • Living room • Dining area • Kitchen • Bathroom with shower • Use of patio & 1920’s barbeque • Use of huge tropical garden • Free on site laundry • Comfy queen size bed • Sleeper sofa • Opium window niche in bedroom • Hardwood floors • Fireplace • Quiet neighborhood • Centrally located • Cable TV • Wifi • Hardwood floors • Easy on-street parking • Friendly atmosphere • The apartment will sleep 5 people—2 in the bed, 2 on the fold-out couch, and one in the opium niche in the bedroom.
