Large Guest House with Pool and Hilltop Views - 1 Bedroom 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 - 4)
About Tim Vlahos
I am a single man who lives alone in the main house. The property is big enough so that guests and owner's paths rarely cross...although I am available at all times for any reason necessary.
Tim Vlahos purchased this Guest House in 2000
Why Tim Vlahos chose Los Feliz
The Villa Sophia is located in the eastern Hollywood Hills, in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. Although you are walking distance to Los Feliz Village where you can find all the conveniences of a major city, up here in the Hills you feel as if you are in the country. The guest house faces south providing all day sunshine and the only sounds are of the birds singing, the gentle breeze blowing and the soft murmur of the fountains...
What makes this Guest House unique
Peace and tranquility with views, all day sunshine, ocean breezes in total luxury.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Incredible location & host
There isn’t much to say besides that this is one of the most incredible stays on this site. Everything is as described (and shown), Tim is a wonderful host and you’ll feel like you’re living in a movie for the entirety of your stay.
The one thing I would say is that the guest house feels bigger in person than it does in the pictures. Oh, and once you use his shower there’s no going back to an apartment in the city. You’ve been warned!
Most amazing for my first visit to Los Angeles. An oasis above the city. The pool is great. The bed the best and I can’t wait to come back. Tom is a delightful and non intrusive host. Check this put🙏�👍�
do yourself a favor. book it!
Gorgeous property in stunning location. Views are spectacular. Although it is a guest house, it feels very private. Tim is a great host. Couldn't ask for anything more. Will definitely book again.
A fantastic hideaway
Breathtaking! Fantastically thoughtful level of detail to insure a truly enchanting experience!
We cannot wait to return. I literally would consider changing my dates if it made staying at Villa Sophia again possible as opposed to trying to find another option in the region. I'm afraid the bar has been set so high that I would not be as happy with any alternatives that I looked at. Villa Sophia is is incomparable in my eyes. Thank you Tim for your warm hospitality and vision to have created such an amazing offering. We look forward to working with you again soon! Aloha and A Hui Hou!!!
Dear Brett, thank you for your kind and generous words! We loved having you and look forward to your next visit! Warm Wishes, Tim
My husband and I spent a week at the Villa Sophia for our 20th Anniversary. We can’t express how beautiful the Villa, pool and gardens are. The views are absolutely amazing! The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable, and there are no words to describe how nice the pool and hot tub are. Tim was very accommodating, and Sophie was a welcome addition to our stay. We didn’t want to leave. Thank you Tim for sharing your beautiful Villa with us! We will definitely be returning!!
