About Kristie Holmes

Kristie has been doing vacation rentals in the neighborhood for 13 years and still loves the area as much as when she first moved here. Her other job is teaching.

Why Kristie Holmes chose Los Angeles County

Fell in love right away, I had always wanted a home on the hillside!

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! There is not a better value than this home anywhere in this area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is working out perfectly for us- so much so that we want to stay longer. Thank you for everything- one of us will be calling later with our new dates after arrangements with the airlines (I hope all of the days are still available...)

Nice Laurel Canyon Spot just up from Hollywood...

  • 5 of 5

This was our home base for work for a few days. The home was comfortable and the location was perfect for our various travels around L.A. The only thing that was an issue was slow internet and poor cell reception. If I were at the home on vacation, that would not have mattered much, but was a little inconvenient since we were on the clock and communications were challenged. House is great though and loved the store at the bottom of the street, very quaint/cool. Kristie was great to work with too. She was super quick with our booking request and payment. Very thorough and thoughtful. She did mention the poor cell service before we booked the house, so I knew that going in, btw. Anyway, was a great trip and thanks for hosting us Kristie!

Repeat guests-completely happy with stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed again at this very comfortable canyon home. We love the location with easy access to the action just 10 minutes down the hill. Parking is right out front with a spot always available! The neighborhood is interesting too. On one visit we saw filming just up the street! Very likely to return!

Perfect rock history location

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfectly located in the birthplace of a lot of 60's and 70's music - an old hippies dream! Living room easily converts to nice dance floor, particularly if you are playing Eagles music!! Deck off the kitchen is a nice spot to have a glass of wine and try to spot deer on the hillside across the street. Beds and baths are comfortable, kitchen is well stocked, and parking is easy if you follow Kristie's suggestions (don't open driver side doors if ANY other car is coming). Convenient to attractions such as Griffith Park, Farmer's Market, Santa Monica Pier (the end of Route 66), Beverly Hills, San Fernando Mission, Universal Studios, Hollywood Bowl, Greek Theatre, Gene Autry Museum, J. Paul Getty Museum, Burbank Airport (do yourself a huge favor and use Burbank if you are flying in - LAX is a nightmare) and much more. Canyon Country Store down the block is fantastic, but suggest you make the walk in daylight. If you are not familiar with traffic patterns in Los Angeles, you might want to consult a local because time and direction of travel can be made more difficult than necessary by LA's legendary traffic. If you want the feel of being away from it all, while at the same time staying smack in the middle of LA County, this is your place. There were 4 of us - two couples, one American, one British, both products of the 60's and 70's. We had a blast pretending we were rubbing elbows with rock legends. You will too. Only caveat is the need to carry suitcases up quite a few stairs. If you are physically challenged this might be difficult. We're all in our 60's and we managed just fine.

Excellent and definitely recommend

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was great. We were 4 adults and 2 children (toddler and a baby). The location of the house is great. The neighborhood is very quiet. Lily's shop is at walking distance and has great coffee for the mornings. Everything in the house was ready as advertised and Kristie made it very easy for us. She was extremely responsive and available for any question prior and during our stay. Wifi worked perfectly. No complaints; on the contrary, definietly recommend.

très belle maison, très bien située

  • 5 of 5

La maison est très belle et très bien entretenue. Elle contient tout le necessaire pour un séjour prolongé à LA. Très bien située, elle est a 45 minutes de l'aeroport, 10 minutes des étoiles d'Hollywood boulevard, 15 minutes de Beverly Hills...

Le voisinage est très calme, dans les collines hollywoodiennes.

Je conseille sans hésitation cette location.

The house is very nice with everything you need during your holidays. The localisation is perfect, closed to a lot a thing in LA and with a very quiet neighborood.

We will come back!!!!

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $79
Additional Guest Fee $20 per person per night

While we would love to include as many people as you can get into the house or cover your family reunion, we can't (and we've learned this by experience). We changed our policy by lowering the rate to a double occupancy rate (industry standard) and additional adults are 20USD per night, since most guests are double occupancy adults. A credit card can be used for Damage Deposit (authorization).

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
