About Stephanie

I am a California native who lived in Los Angeles for 10 years. After relocating to Denver, CO, my husband and I decided to rent out our home to travelers. Our goal is to provide a warm and welcoming place to stay for vacationers and business travelers visiting the LA area. We are pet friendly and we are available to give advice on your stay in Hollywood.

Stephanie purchased this house in 2004

Why Stephanie chose Los Angeles County

We oringinally purchased this property because of it's central location. It is just 20 minutes from Downtown, and less than 10 minutes from Hollywood Blvd, and Universal Studios. The neighborhood is called Franklin Village, and there are plenty of restaurants, groceries, and coffee shops located with walking distance.

What makes this house unique

Our property is great for larger groups or families traveling together, since we sleep 8 people in beds. Teenagers love our loft area, and everyone loves our rooftop deck with view of the Hollywood hills. The property is centrally located, making it a convenient place to stay for tourists. We also have a keyless entry system, so guests can arrive at their own convenience without having to meet anyone at the property. We also provide a PDF travel guide to all of our guests. It is full of reviews on local restaurants, attractions, and things to do in LA. It also includes driving directions to airports and Disneyland. Our gated lot and driveway add privacy and convenience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“This was a great choice. So much space and the layout allowed for all the guests to have privacy. Very easy to enjoy. ”

Great location, a very comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

In California for the graduation of our son from the AFI Conservatory, and the house was ideal for us. Three bedrooms and a loft upstairs was ideal for five of us coming from different places around the country. The living room is very comfortable for a large group, and the location is excellent--not only close to Holly wood Blvd. but coffee shops, restaurants, etc.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

The house was well stocked and had the lived in feeling to it. As others have mentioned it is located on an intersection of two busy streets. We were out and about but it provided a good place to start our day. A few nice places to eat within walking distance.

Close to Hollywood and studio tours

  • 4 of 5

Very centrally located in the Hollywood area. The house has “old bones”, but is well updated, clean, and stocked with everything we needed.

Pros: 3 full bedrooms, so lots of room

The loft has lots of space, good place for kids to get away. The ladder is very steep and there’s some heating equipment up there so not good for very young kids, but 5-20 would love it

Walking distance to Hollywood Boulevard and other attractions. Safe feeling neighborhood.

Well stocked, plenty of pots & plates. Lots of material about neighborhood provided.

Enough space for people to get together if they wanted to, or get away if they wanted to

We didn’t use the outside sitting areas, but they were available for some private space.

Owner was very helpful ahead of our stay, making recommendations on things to do

Not fully ADA compliant, but my dad with 3 hip replacement surgeries was able to get around easily.

Cons: The biggest cons aren’t directly against the home, but traffic in the area can be terrible. A gated driveway is available, but we couldn’t fit two vehicles. Even with some jockeying of our other car, we still managed to get a $60 parking ticket one morning. There is a map with parking laws on the fridge, but it’s something you constantly have to think about. Backing out of the driveway onto the busy street was an exercise – we had one person on the sidewalk directing when the road was clear.

The house is directly on the corner of two busy streets, with very little yard. The road is about 20 feet from bedroom windows. The house does a good job keeping noise out, but at 6am on weekdays it starts getting very noticeable. We found a box fan on the last day that we used for white noise that helped a lot.

We found traffic in the region was terrible, possibly due to events going on. We tried to go to Griffith observatory, but there was a concert that night so most parking was blocked. It took 45 minutes to get to the top, and then there was no parking so we had to just go back down. The night we went to Hollywood boulevard it took 45 minutes to go the 1.7 miles to get back .

Other reviews and the owner mention the parking and traffic, so it wasn’t a total surprise. It is an “urban” home, which has pros and cons.

We had seven adults at our stay and enjoyed our time there. The proximity to the Hollywood area and the movie studios was great. We used LA GO passes. We enjoyed the stay, and would stay there again.

Excellent location very nice property

  • 5 of 5

The accomodations were ideal for us. Including myself there was my mother, my daughter and 2 granddaughters (11 - 15). After sightseeing everyday it was nice to come back to the property and walk to dinner at various restaurants in the neighborhood that were all good. Highly recommend Universal Studios (first of line pass so everything could be done in one day), Santa Monica Pier, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Dolby Theatre and wax museum.

Great place to stay while visiting Los Angeles

  • 5 of 5

The house worked out great. The owner was very accommodating and allowed us to drop off luggage before it was ready. The house was ready and clean on time. There was plenty of room for 3 people. It was within close walking distance to the grocery store and located in a good part of town. It was quiet and there wasn't a lot of noise. It was very peaceful and relaxing. I would highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to LA. We had a great overall experience and would definitely stay again.
