You'll feel right at home as soon as you walk into our property. We accommodate small or large groups, and can sleep up to 8 people in beds. Our convenient, urban location and private, gated property offer the perfect combination for travelers.
OUR GREAT LOCATION!
We are located at the foot of the Hollywood Hills in the popular neighborhood Franklin Village, just minutes from Hollywood Blvd, the Walk of Fame, Universal Studios, and the LA Zoo. Griffith Park, with over 4,000 acres of trails and activities, is only a few blocks away. We are close to bus lines, and LA Metro public transportation. Our walk-able neighborhood is full of shops, coffee spots, restaurants and groceries.
The house is located on a small, gated lot at the edge of the more urban section of Hollywood, so there is the potential for street and sidewalk traffic and urban noise. We have a driveway for two cars or one large SUV or truck. Our outdoor space includes a small side patio and a rooftop deck.
The main living space is on the first floor and includes 3 bedrooms, (2 queen beds, 1 Full bed), 2 bathrooms, living room and kitchen.
Our upstairs loft space includes a sleeping area (2 twin beds), rooftop deck, and ½ bath. Kids and teenagers love this space! Please note that the stairway to this loft is steep, and may not be appropriate for the very young or elderly.
Laundry facilities, ironing board/iron, dish washer, microwave, full kitchen, Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs, Roku digital media players, cable, home phone, portable crib, high chair, keyless entry, gated property, driveway with parking, patio, rooftop deck.
If you love to travel with your pets like we do, they are welcome here. Downstairs is all hardwood floors and the property is surrounded by ficus trees and fencing for both privacy and to keep doggies safe. We can supply you with a pet bed and food & water bowls. We do not charge a pet fee; we only add a small amount to your security deposit.
Our neighborhood has everything you'll want for your stay, within a couple of blocks. You don't need a car to go to the convenience store, grocery store, coffee shops, doughnut shops, bookstores and restaurants. Our favorite is Cafe 101, an American diner, just a three-block walk from us. We are in the heart of Hollywood... a great central location.

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 Hollywood
We originally purchased this property because of its 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 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.

We had a relaxing and comfortable stay. Our grandchildren had a fabulous time in the second floor bedroom and play area - which they thought was a special treat. The house was fully outfitted and the managers were very responsive.
Thank you for your stay!
Wasn’t there that much. The two girls on spring break kept all of us pretty busy.
Just the right size for our group of 7. A little noises but all in all everything was ok. Very close to everything we wanted to tour. Enjoyed the stay very much. West coast quiet different than the East coast
This was the perfect location for our little group to stay during our short visit to LA. The house was comfortable and well equipped. We only ended up using half of the house, but it was nice to have all that space!
Great accommodation in a good location. We had a fantastic time
We enjoyed our stay in West Hollywood. The home was a great place with all the necessities, had a few small problems which the owner corrected ASAP.
Had a problem with the smoke alarm, every time we used the stove or put bread in the toaster the alarm went off apart from that a great place to stay.
Sorry about the smoke alarm, this happens every few years when the battery starts dying! Glad you had a good time otherwise.
Stunning! A hidden oasis!
My family and I stayed here for five nights and six days and had a blast. Our three young boys really enjoyed hanging out in the loft area which granted them space for toys, reading and coloring while my wife and I relaxed in the living room and rooftop deck. This home had plenty of character along with modern amenities. And having a gated, private parking spot was a plus! The location is blocks from major retailers for both food and clothing as well as minutes from The Griffith Observatory, Universal Studios and the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
I highly recommend staying here and we will do so with our next trip to SoCal.
Wherever my family and I travel we look for places like this which allow the freedom, space and access needed to feel at home while on vacation.
We love to hear when kids and teens use our loft space. It's a fun area up there that they can call all their own!
The house was so roomy, clean and well-supplied.
Thank you for renting us your property for the week of Christmas. We wanted a place where we could hunker down, cook, take it easy without having to drive any where and that was pet friendly, and this property met that goal perfectly. The house was roomy, clean and well-supplied. Entrance was made easy so that we didn't need to worry about arriving at a specific time. The neighborhood was great with lots of organic groceries and conveniences within easy walking distance. (The home is in walking distance not just to a Gelson's but to an organic convenience mart as well as a Thai restaurant!) Even downtown Hollywood was an easy stroll with of course a ton of great restaurants if you're so inclined. The beds were comfortable. Our pets were made to feel welcome, and it was easy to get off the property and walk them safely day and night. The house was made secure as well.
We wish'd we had access to more cable stations and we didn't want to enter our personal codes into the Roku to get to a selection of movies. But that's a minor criticism.
The view from the rooftop deck was amazing.
We highly recommend that if you're traveling during a cold season, that you check with the owner to see if they have weather-stripped the back patio door on the side of the house and the kitchen window where the AC unit hose is vented (there's a 1-inch gap there and huge gaps in the patio door that just allows all the heat to pour out and the cold to pour in). We were unable to keep the heat in the living room until we plugged the leaks with a lot of paper. The first night, we could not get that room above 57F until we we plugged the leaks. The two bedrooms we used -- the master and guest room with the stair case up to the loft -- were well-sealed and comfy.
The kitchen was well-appointed with supplies, dishes and flatware. While we brought our own towels, sheets, plates, flatware etc as recommended, there was plenty there as well.
We came in a 21-foot van RV that fit in the gated drive with two feet to spare on either side. A full-sized RV will fit tightly. Please know that you should back into the drive because if you do not, you will have to back out onto a street that is high traffic day and night. There is a traffic light just before the house entrance that can help you time backing into the drive, though your travel companions should also help guide you in. Or, you can just park on the street.
We always love hosting pets, and they are always welcome. Glad they were comfortable! We did get all the weatherstripping updated to avoid the drafts you mentioned, thank you for bringing it to our attention.
We are Located in Hollywood at the edge of Los Feliz. Griffith Park is a short distance from the property, as is Franklin Village. The Village has restaurants, a supermarket, coffee shops, bookstores, a theatre, etc. We are 10 minutes from Universal Studios and the Hollywood Walk of Fame and shopping on Hollywood Blvd. We are also a short 15 minute drive to shopping on Melrose Ave, and museums in the Wilshire area.
