Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Location, location, location. You simply will not find a more charming and centrally located Hollywood vacation spot. The Sunset Hollywood Bungalows are 1 block south of Sunset Blvd, in the heart of literally everything. Sunset Hollywood Bungalow 2 is the smaller of two rental homes, and has 1 bedroom. The price for the small Bungalow is 187 per night.

Scroll to the bottom of this page for all current pictures.

These are separate houses, with no walls connecting you to someone else. Designed in the Hollywood Craftsman style of the main house, which was built in 1920 for studio employees, writers, and actors. The back house is completely private and separate from the front house. The back house, Sunset Hollywood Bungalow 2, was built in ’08 from the ground up to make this a dream vacation or months-long rental.

The Bungalow has a big bedroom, huge bright and cheerful living room, and a tiled (Hollywood-style) bathroom with tub & shower. The kitchen is big and has everything you need to cook in if you wish. Sunset Bungalow 2 has French doors that lead from the living area to an enormous—and completely private--patio, cooled by a grand old tree..

ALL AMENITIES AND OFF-STREET PARKING:

The pictures are fully accurate and recent.

You have your own parking space, and a second space is available.

I (the host/owner) am a Hollywood native. I will help if you need suggestions, directions, etc., so that you have a wonderful Hollywood experience. The only thing I can't promise is celebrity sightings, but follow the paparazzi and the oversized sunglasses and you're sure to see them.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you.

About Kirby Tepper

I bought this house in 2001 and built the guest Bungalow in 2008. My father was born in L.A., so I'm a 2nd generation Angeleno--in fact, my Dad went to Hollywood High, just around the corner from here. And my mom spent her entire career at CBS television, also within a few minutes walking distance of my house.

I spent much of my career in the entertainment world...I started my career as a Broadway (New York) performer, then moved back to my hometown of L.A. to do some t.v. and film, eventually becoming a songwriter for various shows, most proudly having written a song in the first 'Shrek' movie. Several years back I made a career transition and became a psychotherapist, obviously a big change, and I love my work.

Kirby Tepper purchased this house in 2008

Why Kirby Tepper chose Los Angeles County

The Sunset Hollywood Bungalow is my pet project. I love Hollywood and am amazed and elated that it has had such a fantastic renaissance.

There isn't a better location in Hollywood to experience the feel of what has happened here in the last several years. It's within walking distance of all the big Hollywood landmarks, theatres, and metro stops. For example, you can walk 5 minutes to the metro, take the metro one stop, and you're at Universal Studios. It's only a few minutes by car to the Museums, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood. People come here from all over the world, I live vicariously as they discover fun things to do, places to eat, clubs, etc.

The main house is a classic Hollywood Bungalow built in 1920 for studio workers. In 2008 I had the back (smaller) Bungalow built from the ground up, so it's brand new.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to major tourist attractions, tour buses, subways and L.A. metro, restaurants, shopping.

Very clean (see reviews for confirmation), very private.

Parking for 2 cards (unheard of in Los Angeles, trust me!)

Notes:
Solar Powered Home. Ask the owner for suggestions about restaurants and attractions. Fantastic restaurants nearby. You won't necessarily need to rent/hire a car. I recommend it because Los angeles is big, but many guests stay at the Bungalow without a car of their own and are amazed at the centrality of the location.

Well-maintained property exactly as represented

  • 5 of 5

Property in pristine condition, exactly as described/shown on website. Owner "Kirby" very pleasant to work with both online and in person. Provided very comprehensive welcome guide, for both property details (e.g. TV operations etc.) but also neighborhood tips to restaurants, Sunday farmers' market, etc. Highly recommended.
