Welcome to your sunny, stylish home in the heart of Hollywood. You can walk to theatres, restaurants, clubs, and classic landmarks like the Hollywood Bowl, Kodak Theater, and Magic Castle from this gorgeous chateau duplex 1-Bedroom apartment in historic Hollywood Heights.

This large, 1925 house has been tastefully divided into three separate, private apartments, one of which we are offering as a furnished 1BR getaway. Nestled in the back of a tree-lined cul de sac, you’ll find it has a surprisingly quiet, natural feel for its central, Hollywood Hills location. Incredibly convenient if you are visiting or working in Burbank, Studio City, or NoHo, and a quick ride to downtown too.

The space itself is amazing. The living room has an almost cathedral-like feel – huge and sunny with a double-height barrel ceiling, giant windows and hardwood floors. On clear days (which is almost every day in Southern California!), sunlight floods the room and makes for a truly wonderful place to relax or tweak your screenplay. The apartment is stylishly furnished and includes both wireless internet and a 37” LCD HDTV flat panel TV and DVD player. The open kitchen has everything you need to cook at home – including a microwave, four-burner gas stove, coffeemaker and toaster – and enjoy your meal at the adjacent dining table with seating for four.

In the bedroom you’ll find a new, queen-sized bed with fresh cotton sheets and a fluffy comforter. The elegant, modern Design Within Reach couch in the living room also folds down into a bed, which can sleep two additional guests.

We went the extra mile to add a few reflections of our own passions (design, film, literature, music) so you’ll find nice touches like framed Nama Rococo French Dot Wall Paper and Blik wall murals in addition to selection of well-chosen books, films, and music to help you feel inspired.

Bring your morning cup of coffee out onto the large patio, surrounded by greenery.

An off-street parking space is included (though be aware that a large truck or large SUV may not fit easily in the spot, in which case we can lend you a parking pass that will allow you to park on the street in front) .

No smoking in the unit – please keep it limited to outside onto the patio.

Do note that there is a flight of stairs from the driveway up to the front door of the house, and a small set (7 stairs) within the apartment.

Please also note that Los Angeles Hotel Tax (TOT) of 14% is applicable on all stays of 30 days or less. Stays of 31 days or longer are NOT subject to tax.

We (the owners) live in a separate apartment in another part of the house, and are happy to help with directions or suggestions to make your stay a great one. Oh, and did we mention the amazing location?

About Jamie

We are a writer and a composer who have lived in LA for a combined 26 years, so we can tell you everything from the best place to get a Thai massage to our favorite secret beach (shhh!). We love to travel, and prefer to stay in homes rather than hotels - so we enjoy creating a hospitable place for you to stay.

Jamie purchased this Apartment in 2003

Why Jamie chose Hollywood Hills

We live here too, and we love it. A quiet oasis, even as you are in the middle of - and close to - everything.

What makes this Apartment unique

We are a short walk away from the Kodak Theater - home of the Academy Awards - so if you are nominated, you can skip the limo logjam and walk :)

                                                          beautiful home, WONDERFUL owner. She was so helpful and accommodating. only suggestions would be to stock a couple more towels and be more specific about the limited parking situation. Make sure you have a small car or it may prove to be a bit of a challenge. Overall great experience and would highly recommend.

                                                          I loved this place it was cozy and great location!

                                                          Jamie was great and very helpful throughout our stay!

                                                          Cute and clean house in the perfect location

                                                          Jennifer C.

                                                          We enjoyed our stay. Jamie was very friendly and met us at the property when we arrived. The house was clean and the perfect size for our family of three. We loved the 1920's architecture and the location was great for our visit. Hollywood Bowl is a walk away and Universal Studios is only a 10-15 minute drive. We were also close to a Ralph's for groceries and either a short drive or Uber ride away from restaurants. There was a heat wave during our trip (95-100 degrees) so the bedroom and bathroom were a little warm. The AC unit did a good job cooling the living and kitchen areas though. We would definitely stay here again and look forward to our next trip.

                                                          Great unit in quiet peaceful neighbourhood!

                                                          Robert C.

                                                          Unit was ready when promised by the owners and was clean, well-stocked with linens and supplies such as coffee and condiments. Jamie is very welcoming and asked how well I knew the area and gave recommendations on grocery stores and the best way to access Runyon Canyon Park. The unit did get a little warm the week I was in Hollywood, but it was 100 F all week. There is a portable AC unit to help with cooling, but it did not have the ability to combat the crazy hot weather that week. Overall I loved the location and my stay and would certainly rebook this accomodation in the future. Also parking provided on the driveway for a standard sized vehicle. Oversized vehicles will have trouble with parking.

                                                          Classic Hollywood

                                                          Quiet unit above the fray, but within walking distance of all the Hollywood sights. Friendly host. Unit as described, very clean. Walk to the Bowl and forget the car--what a concept for LA! Very hilly area, and unit up a flight if stairs, fit for the fit.

                                                          Wonderful Hollywood Hills home for family visit

                                                          Michelle M.St. Louis

                                                          My family and I (4 people) recently stayed in this charming Hollywood Hills bungalow. The location is perfect; walking distance to Hollywood Blvd. and a very short drive to iconic sights (Hollywood Bowl, Griffith Observatory and Universal Studios, etc.) The apartment was spacious and well-appointed (and I have to say, it features the most comfortable beds and pillows I've ever encountered in a rental home!) We loved relaxing on the lower patio and listening to the fountain, or eating breakfast on the main patio surrounded by plants and fruit trees. But the best part was the welcoming family who owns the home. They were so thoughtful and provided great advice for things to do in the area. We enjoyed chatting with them and learning more about the area, but they also gave us plenty of space. The best of both worlds! I recommend this lovely home without reservation.

                                                          we are an LGBT friendly property.
