About Frances

I am an European Journalist who has been covering Hollywood for over 30 years. My life and privilege has been to interview and learn from every major Hollywood talent: their dreams, ups and downs, successes and failures... I have been visited by Catherine Zeta-Jones to Arnold Schwarzenegger to Will Ferrell just to name a few. The property has been used for fashion shots and as a movie location. For me Los Angeles means sunshine, blue wide-open sky, diversity of people, natural wonders, individuality, unimaginable cuisine and 'The sky's the limit' attitude. What I love about my property is the location: far away and yet so close to the hustle and bustle of Hollywood... from here you can quickly be anywhere the action is in minutes...or just enjoying a serene day on top of the world.

Frances purchased this house in 1975

Why Frances chose Los Angeles County

As soon as I came to Los Angeles my dream was to live on Mulholland Drive, which is for me as historic as a cathedral would be in a town in Europe. MULHOLLAND DRIVE is a painting by David Hockney. KING OF THE MOUNTAIN was a fictional movie with Dennis Hopper, Harry Hamlin and Dan Haggerty loosely based on actual Mulholland Drive racers. The films MULHOLLAND DRIVE and MULHOLLAND FALLS were named after the road. Video games GRAND THEFT AUTO and MIDNIGHT CLUB features Mulholland Drive. R.E.M.'s song ELECTROLITE was inspired by Mulholland Drive and is mentioned. TOM PETTY refers to 'glide down over Mulholland' in the hit song 'FREE FALLIN'. In LOVE AND BASKETBALL Mulholland Drive is referred to during the scene in which Q and Monica meet up outside of her bedroom after the Spring Dance. It marks the street as a dead end where couples go for privacy.

Wonderful stay in the Hollywood Hills!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent an extra long weekend in this lovely home in Hollywood Hills. It is even more spacious than it looks in the pictures, and the bedrooms are so quiet. The beds & linens are of the highest quality and we found everything so comfortable. The views from all sides are fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the garden taking in the wonderful weather and beautiful sights, right outside our door.

The location is perfect for all activities in this area. We could be on Sunset Blvd, Hollywood Blvd, or Beverly Hills within minutes. Hiking in Runyon Canyon is just around the corner. This home is located amidst all the stars' homes and it was so exciting trying to spot a few. I highly recommend this for any group of two or four people. We were with another couple and the way the bedrooms are situated, you would never even know there was anyone else in the house! We were fortunate to briefly meet the owner, Frances, who is so lovely. You will love staying here!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 really enjoyed staying at this home for our trip to Hollywood. The location was perfect. Loved having the Hollywood sign in view of the driveway! My teenage girls loved the beautiful colors in the home. Our one and only complaint was the water pressure in the shower was a little strong but it was bearable. I really appreciated that we were given an extended checkout time since we didn't have a flight until late night on checkout day. Thank you Frances for allowing us to stay in your great house in the Hollywood Hills!

5 stars for value, location, and serenity

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, plus our two girls, were here for several nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a guest house with great separation and privacy from the main house. It's in a gorgeous and quiet neighborhood just off of Mulholland Drive. The unit is clean, spacious, and has an extensive movie collection. Frances, the owner and neighbor, is an absolute sweetheart. I thoroughly enjoyed hiking Runyon Canyon out of our front door. We would definitely stay here again!

Ein Traum, der in Hollywood in Erfüllung geht!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben Ende Mai 2017 eine Woche in Frances Gästehaus in den Hollywood Hills gewohnt und können nur sagen, dass es absolut traumhaft ist. Sauberkeit, Ausstattung und Lage lassen keine Wünsche offen. Alles war perfekt. Wir hatten auch ein paar Mal das Glück Frances persönlich zu begegnen und es war immer sehr angenehm mit ihr über "Gott und die Welt" zu reden. Sie hatte stets gute Tipps für Ausflüge, etc. parat. Das Haus ist in einer ruhigen und sicheren Wohngegend gelegen, vom Garten aus (in dem wir viel Zeit verbracht haben) hat man einen direkten Blick auf den Runyon Canyon, welcher zu Fuss ca. 10 Min. entfernt ist. Von der Ausfahrt blickt man auf das Hollywood Sign. Alle anderen Ziele sind gut und einfach mit dem Auto zu erreichen.

Vielen Dank Frances für diesen unvergesslichen Aufenthalt in Deinem wunderschönen Gästehaus.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Herrliche Lage! Ruhe und Entspannung am Ende von eindrucksvollen Tagen.

Frances ist eine sehr nette, hilfsbereite Gastgeberin, die immer erreichbar ist.

Schöne Wohnung, groß genug für vier - leider nur ein Bad/WC, das nur durch ein Schlafzimmer zu erreichen war. Für uns kein großes Problem.
