About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Chosen in 2016 by "Homeaway" to shoot their commercial, LA Villa is a zen retreat minutes away from the action. If you've never been to Los Angeles, this is the spot. Close to all the shops and the sunset strip yet up enough in the hills to offer spectacular city and ocean views . Recently remodeled with comfort in mind, the one-level open floor plan has all around access to the pool and garden, which are beautifully lit at night. The heated outdoor dining patio has been a favorite among guests as well as the fully equipped Chef's kitchen and outdoor BBQ.

There are three bedrooms with on suite bathrooms in the main house and one bedroom and bathroom in the guest house, part of a large studio living room. All bedrooms are large, with comfortable beds and luxurious linen.

The decor is contemporary, comfortable furniture, white walls and tasteful modern art....a sanctuary of peace in the heart of LA. The villa is well equipped with quality dinner ware, glasses, linens, satellite TV, and stereo system throughout the house and outdoor area. Ideal for business, family vacation or photo shoots.

NOTE: Commercial filming and photo-shoots are welcomed and require a prior agreement with the owner.


due to cold temperature at night, the pool is not heated in the winter. Solar panels are only effective in the summer since the pool doesn't have a cover. Gas heating available at an extra charge

About Franck Jarno

My husband and I fell in love with this exquisite property in 2009. We keep on improving it with comfort in mind. Our goal is to provide a home away from home so you won't find pictures of us on the wall. We want this house to feel like it's yours, at least for a moment.

Franck Jarno purchased this house in 2009

Why Franck Jarno chose Hollywood Hills West

Complete 'Zenitude' and privacy while minutes from the center.

What makes this house unique

The sunset and sunrise are amazing. A photographer's dream backdrop.

Beautiful property. It exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

This property is a perfect Southern California getaway. It's clean, modern and spacious. The outdoor area - patio, pool and BBQ - is completely shielded from the adjacent properties: 100% privacy. It's perfectly situated in the West Hollywood/Beverly Hills area with easy access to the world's best shopping and dining. Santa Monica Blvd, Melrose Avenue and Rodeo Drive are five minutes away. Actually, you can walk to them if you're up for it! So are the legendary rock 'n' roll clubs, the Viper Room, the Rainbow, the Roxy and the Whiskey A-Go-Go. The owners and hosts are wonderful and they make you feel at home.

Fantastic Home - Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! Location is excellent. House is well decorated, clean and just right. Beautiful views. Secluded and private. Guest house is perfect if you have another couple, kids, or nanny wants privacy separate from the main house. Very neat and not cluttered. Feels like a home and not a rental. Can't say enough nice things about it. I have rented many homes and I would say this was THE BEST that I have rented when all things are considered. The only minor hiccup we had was that we rented some items from a local company and since that company is closed on Sundays they could not pick up the items when we checked out (we checked out on a Sunday) and when they tried to pick them up on Monday and a couple times afterwards they couldn't because they couldn't get in touch with the prop. manager. After a few days the rental company was going to charge us for the full cost of the items. However, that hiccup ended up being successfully resolved. The rental company couldn't get in touch with the prop. manager because he had a terrible case of the stomach flu......Again, this place is great and I highly recommend it.

Wonderful Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this location (3 couples) and it was everything that was promised and more! The outdoor space was fantastic and we enjoyed the amenities such as bbq and heaters. The location is great just above Sunset Blvd and we were close to grocery and other necessities. The owner was very easy to work with and we enjoyed meeting her! Would definitely recommend this rental for a relaxing vacation spot.

Buyer Beware

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful vacation property. …The house is beautifully furnished, has very high end bed and bath linens and a great kitchen to prepare meals in – all the amenities one would wish for to enjoy a stay in Los Angeles. It is quiet and secure with an absolute gorgeous view of the city lights. However, the renter should be very, very cautious of one aspect of renting it. We suggest you do a very thorough walk through of the house with the property manager before you move in. Check every nook and cranny (inside and out) and document any items that could possibly be questioned…take pictures of every room including contents and patio furniture. On checking out, have your pictures for documentation …the return of the damage deposit check could be an issue and something you may have difficulty getting refunded.

Owner's Response: this reviewer didn't not stay at the house. his parents did. upon the inventory the manager noticed damages to the outdoor chairs that he had never noticed before so it was natural to express his concern, not knowing for sure what happened the deposit check was returned in full the same day which the reviewer fails to mention. Anyhow, it is a good idea for the owner and for the renter to do a thorough inspection of the place before and after each stay as it is done generally when renting any property.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a two week vacation at this villa and I would wholly endorse the very positive comments of the previous reviewers.The following should also be emphasised:

1.The location is perfect at the head of a quiet secluded cul de sac but in very close proximity to the areas main points of interest eg Sunset Blvd,Beverly Hills,Hollywood,Universal Studios etc.

2.The Villa itself is spacious,luxurious and immaculately presented.The rear of the property affords outstanding views of the surrounding area.The pool is sizeable and ideal for children and adults alike.The house is very well equipped with modern appliances,and communication and entertainment sources (Wi-fi,flat screen TVs,DVD players together with a substantial and varied DVD collection and even a baby grand piano!).

3.The Rental Rate represents outstanding value for money.

4.The owner and her family are a pleasure to deal with in every way.

I cannot recommend this Villa highly enough.
