Why not experience Old Hollywood from the inside? Stay in an original Craftsman Duplex in the canyon that leads to the Hollywood Sign!

We're perfectly located in the Hollywood Hills- close to the Studios, the Hollywood Bowl, The Griffith Observatory, Chinese Theater, Hollywood Walk of Fame... Hike to the Hollywood Sign!

Why Suzan Hanson chose Hollywood Hills

We love old Hollywood homes, and were thrilled to find ours with so many original elements in tact. We renovated, preserving as much of the old as was possible, while updating necessary elements (wiring, roof, etc)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We recently spent 3 days at this beautiful Craftsman in Hollywood. It was a great location and Suzan and Michael were wonderful hosts. Our experience was truly delightful and we hope they have a vacancy the next time we travel to LA because they will be our first choice for accommodations! Thank you, Suzan and Michael, for your attention to every detail!

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Suzan and Michael were very nice and always willing to answer any question via e-mail and in person or to provide anything I needed during my 3 week stay. We really enjoyed the walk to the Hollywood sign that they suggested. Suzan went out of her way to arrange the use of a heavy-duty mixer and Michael was so nice to allow the use of the grill and bar-b-q utensils. The property was very inviting with lots of plants and clean, comfortable, and neat. The oven bakes perfectly and the appliances reminded me of "being at Grandma's house." This location is VERY convenient to groceries, pharmacies, restaurants, and the attractions near Hollywood & Vine.

Our Hollywood Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have spent two November vacations in this darling little place and loved every minute of it! There is so much to do in the area and one of our favourite things is walk out the front door for a fantastic hike up to the Hollywood sign. The warm welcome we receive upon arrival and during our stay only enhances what this adorable home has to offer. Susan and Michael - you will be seeing us again!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

When looking at the photos, lovely they are they don't do this property justice. Normally used to staying at hotels it was a relief not to be woken up every morning by housekeeping or just be bored to death by the monotonous decor. This place is totally different. Everything is well appointed even down to the antique fridge which is stocked before your stay. Differing from the hotel reception, Suzan and Michael are the perfect hosts who are generally warm and offer good local advise when needed. So all in all our stay was wonderful and yours will be to!

Cozy & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family & I stayed here while we explored Hollywood. The location is great, just a few blocks to Hollywood Blvd. & only 4 minutes to Universal Studios. We have two young boys w/ lots of energy & were pleased to find that the place has a nice sized backyard. Suzan & Michael were awesome hosts who thoughts of every last detail to help make our stay as comfy as ever. Everything was clean & tidy & well represented on the website. I was ready to move in for good!

We will be staying here the next time we travel to Hollywood! Thanks so much!

Best place to stay in LA!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location right near the hollywood sign; hollywood hills literally in 10-15mins walking distance. Bus stop right near to take to nearby hollywood blvd. Cute little home that we didn't want to leave, next door to rental owners who were the most helpful and friendly neighbours! Can't wait to go back! Worth every penny!

A Great Alternative to the Hollywood Hubub

  • 5 of 5

We have tried several rentals in the Hollywood/Los Feliz area and this was by far the best! Suzan & Michael have done an amazing job of restoring this older unit to retain its "period" integrity, yet updating enough for modern comfort.

As an older traveling couple, we appreciated the ability to retreat from the nearby dining & shopping attractions to a place where we were not subjected to noisy neighbors returning from the clubs in the wee hours. Although the unit is on a busy street, the bedroom is at the very back and was amazingly quiet.

We came to CA to visit family and hope to return to this unit again in the very near future!
