My guests say:

'The views of LA are amazing! You could just sit on the balcony and never leave watching the world go by!' - Leila, London

'Once you walk in the door and see the view you'll never want to leave.' - Rob & Dave, Toronto

'The stunning views from Scott's house are equal to his hospitality and responsiveness--both are excellent.' - Rosy, New York City

This is the perfect vacation spot in Los Angeles! The small, cozy house is perched 800 ft above sea level with unobstructed, spectacular views of Hollywood, downtown Los Angeles and all the way to Long Beach, the ocean and Catalina Island. Photos cannot even capture the breath taking view! This Hollywood Hills house is just 2 minutes from famous night spots like Saddle Ranch, House of Blues and The Comedy Club as well as other restaurants and hot spots. Ten minutes away from Hollywood Blvd sightseeing, Universal Studios, trendy Melrose shopping and Beverly Hills, and 30 minutes to Venice Beach, Santa Monica Pier and Malibu.

The house also has my personal listings of recommended sights, restaurants and shopping to save you time and money and get the most out of your vacation. All the photos of the view on this page were taken from the balcony by me personally!

About The Owner

The house may be small, but it is so cozy, it's on quiet deadend street, AND it's 2 minutes from the Sunset strip. Even after all these years I am amazed by the view and still soak it up!

The Owner purchased this studio in 2003

Why The Owner chose Los Angeles County

The view is amazing and the location is perfect.

What makes this studio unique

The view, the view and also the view! Some people end up doing nothing but reading a book on the balcony when they stay here! Being 2 minutes to the Suset strip and right in the middle of everything in L.A. makes this perfect for sightseeing!

Guestbook comments from the owner


We had a great time in LA, and your house was a perfect location and such an amazing view!!

Great view but that's it

  • 2 of 5

We have never left a negative rating on any Home Away property that we have stayed in, and we have rented 21 places over the last 10 months all around the world. Unfortunately this one takes the cake. Yes there is a million dollar view, and yes the place is small which I knew from the pictures. What you don't know is how filthy this apartment is. There is no cold water in the bathroom sink, it appears to be shut off but the hot water works and gets hot. Good luck with brushing your teeth in hot water. It was probably turned off due to a leak because the bathroom smells very musty and moldy. The half bath with the toilet and sink is also very dirty with ants crawling all over the place including across our toiletries. The shower floor is dirty. The floor in the entire apartment is filthy. I took a wet wash cloth and mopped the floor as best as I could. The rag was black when I finished. There were dirty dishes in the dishwasher when we checked in. The refrigerator is dirty. We didn't cook so I can't review any of the appliances. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. There is a lot of dust outside on the patio furniture but I'm sure that was due to the construction of a house below. This could be a cute place if it had some TLC. I think staying in a clean place then maybe taking a drive up to the Mulholland lookout would have been better for us. If you do decide to stay here, be sure to take flip flops to wear when you walk around the place and shower.

Owner's Response: The most demanding guests who have ever stayed in 15 years of renting. After one day I had decided I would never rent to these two again and wished I could refund them and make them go elsewhere. They spent so much time being negative I don’t know how they could even have fun on vacation. Advice…if need someone to be at your beckon call and listen to your nonstop complaining, stay in a hotel not a house build in 1955, which by the way, gets constant updates and upgrades. The long list of positive reviews speak for themselves. Don’t rent your place to these guys.

Breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

The view makes this property worth every penny. It is also very close to many LA landmarks! Our last trip to LA was hell because of the traffic and trying to get around. This is an absolute PERFECT location. Went to downtown Hollywood in minutes, Chinese Theater, Universal, Warner Brothers, CBS studios to be on The Price is Right, and Farmers Market. Highly recommend this place. It's our go-to from now on when we are in LA!

The place was perfect for us as a couple, it had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. Being right at the top of the hill we were worried it would be hard to get around but ordering an Uber was easy, they always came to get us & had no dramas getting dropped off back there. We walked down the hill on our first day, dont recommend it!! It was tough! Apart from that, we were grateful for Scott's place being away from downtown, was amazing being able to relax after being out all day & just sit on the verandah overlooking the city. Whole experience was fantastic, would recommend!

We arrived a day early by mistake and we were accommodated without an issue; thankyou. We loved the apartment but the views from the balcony were simply breathtaking. Definitely recommend.
