This home, like the Picasso and Chagall on it's interior walls, is 'Original, And One Of A Kind' property. As you walk through the copper hammered front door and enter the anteroom, you are transported to the upper levels in an open framed cast iron elevator, which climbs through four stories of wrap around circular stone staircase, during the ascent your senses are brought to full attention to bear witness to every exquisite detail as each floor is revealed. Floor to ceiling glass walls accentuate the grand scale of the master suite giving way to jetliner views stretching from downtown LA to the ocean from the master bed. Draped with tapestries, fabric and hand made rugs, there has never been a more seamless mix of luxury and comfort.
Adjoining the master bedroom is the master bath, encased in exquisite jade colored marble and boasting a Jacuzzi with views over the city and a double headed shower. Three other en suite bedrooms boast custom fixtures and layouts designed so everyone lives like a king. Antique folding wooden doors encase floor to ceiling windows on the fourth floor, which open up to a stunning all tile pool and spa, as well as an endless view from the city to the water. 18' cathedral ceilings soar overhead, and the distressed copper kitchen cabinets accompany an antique stove, and crystal and cast iron chandeliers. With this turnkey property, hailed as 'the best house in LA', you are renting not just a home, but a lifestyle. Bring your toothbrush, leave your cares, and step into a life where anything is possible and nothing forbidden.

Why James chose Hollywood Hills
This house is situated in the playground of the rich and famous. The Hollywood Hills area is home to the most beautiful people in the world, and this property is ideally situated to take advantage of the shopping on Rodeo, a night out on Sunset, and world class restaurants and cultural institutions. You may have heard nightmares about the traffic in LA, that will not be an issue as everything worth doing is right in this area. As you ascend the drive to this villa in the sky you will feel your everyday worries falling away, when the door opens you will know you are home in the house you always dreamed of...if only for the night.
What makes this House unique
This house is a deal closer. If you are looking to wow your future partner, meet the women of your dreams, or fall in love again with the one that you have...and you can't get it done here, then you are not going to be able to get it done. People come to stay the weekend...and leave a year later...and the only complaint was that they had to leave too soon.

Incredible, one-of-a-kind property!
Our group of girlfriends had a amazing weekend stay at James's place. Simply put, this four-floor property is stunning! From the unique furnishings in every room, to the panoramic views, to the cozy rooftop pool area, to the wrought-iron in-house elevator, to the high ceilings, we knew we had found a very special play to stay. It is extremely spacious even for a large group and the beds were also very comfortable. Highly recommended!
We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay at our Villa in the Sky, and really appreciate the great review. Hope to see you in LA again!
Fantastic views and a beautiful house!
This is our second time staying at a property by James. He has an eclectic taste in furnishing and a unique home. The pictures on the website are accurate and descriptions on point. The house was large enough for our group of ten adults easily. The house is older, but that adds to the charm. It’s not pristine, but very clean and well kept. The master suite is enormous! Very cool house with an amazing view of Hollywood and LA. The house is large enough that it never felt crowded with our large group. Thank goodness for the elevator because four flights of stairs can be exhausting after a long day out on the town. The location is quiet and still close to lots of action down the hill.
I do wish the oven worked, but that was told to us ahead of time.
James is a responsive owner and personally called when I emailed a question during our stay.
We would rent this place again in a heartbeat.
A one of kind dream home!
Amazing four story home in Hollywood Hills with jaw dropping views, totally unique decor, and incredible public spaces with an expansive living/dining room, kitchen, and pool area on the upper level of the home. Beyond those remarkable qualities, the bedrooms may be the showstopper as the house has five true suites (the master is unforgettable), each with their own sitting areas and bathrooms, all of which inspire a feeling of true privacy. So, the top floor gives you all the entertaining space you can handle with friends and/or family, while the bedrooms can allow you to take a breather for any needed alone time. The process of renting the house was flawless as well- thank you to the team for assisting us! Overall, I cannot recommend this home any more highly and we look forward to returning!
Amazing home with incredible views
Absolutely loved this place! Huge home in a quite exclusive neighborhood with phenomenal city views. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Villa in the Sky
The name says it all – 4 floors of amazement, nestled high up in the Hollywood Hills. I’m sure there were celebrities nearby, but we did not see them during our stay. It was obviously a very exclusive neighborhood. The views from every floor were to die for and every inch of this place exudes a very unique style and creativity. Not your average villa at all! Well worth the price and SO MUCH space for our group. Returning is high on our list of things to do.
We love it here!!!
My wife and I stayed at the "Panorama" (another property owned/managed by the Modern Villas) in January for a getaway and we loved it so much, we decided to come back and bring friends. The house we previously stayed in wasn't available, but this ended up being even better (and much bigger). This four-story villa is truly luxurious and is a one-of-a-kind old Hollywood-style home. There were 8 of us and we had such a great time. Heated pool (with a view!), steam room shower, amazing attention to detail in the interior design and located right behind the Hollywood Bowl (we even heard the music one night). We will definitely be coming back!
