Property description

We are a 100% non-smoking property inside and out (including balconies and yards). If anyone in your group smokes, we are not the right property for you.

We require a 5 night minimum for stays with possible exceptions at owner's discretion (that's why the listing says 2 nights - for exceptions only!). Shorter stays will be subject to additional charges if exceptions are made. We appreciate your understanding.

Please note, rates are based on occupancy of 6. For occupancy over 6 (adults or children), there is a $30 per person, per night charge.

This spacious 1600 square foot apartment is the lower unit of a small historic 1936 apartment building just a few blocks west of The Grove shopping center and the Original Farmer's Market.

The upper unit is the same layout and is also available for rentals. Please feel free to inquire even if the lower unit is booked.

The area is a designated historic district and our building maintains all the beauty and history of the neighborhood while boasting all the comforts of modern living.

Hardwood floors throughout the unit give warmth and the feeling of home to the unit. Double paned windows with low-e glass provide both conservation of energy and even more quiet inside from our quiet outside neighborhood.

The unit has been newly renovated and includes a brand new kitchen, central heat & air, and is immaculately clean. A sweet front yard gives you some private greenery all your own and there is even a lemon tree shared by the other 2 tenants in the building.

2 bedrooms feature large eastern king size beds and the 3rd bedroom features 2 double beds. Each bed has crisp white linens, accent colored warm blankets and a quilt for those cooler nights. There is plenty of closet space for travelers as well and flat screen televisions in each bedroom. Both blinds and curtains in the bedrooms allow travelers to choose the amount of light they want to wake up to. Each bedroom also has an overhead ceiling fan to help circulate air on our cool los angeles nights. An ipod, iphone dock and charger on the clock radio will charge your phone. Sounds of nature are also available on this clock to lull you to sleep. Each bedroom closet holds two warm terry bathrobes for your lounging comfort.

The kitchen has all full sized appliances including stainless steel refrigerator/ freezer with through the door filtered ice & water, range and over the range microwave and full 24' dishwasher and a double bowled farmhouse sink with garbage disposal. Quartz countertops add elegance to the kitchen design and are extremely durable. The kitchen is well appointed with service for 8, cookware, and more. You can easily cook a full gourmet meal in this kitchen or just as easily heat up your leftovers from the night before out on the town. Hand soap, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, newly wrapped sponge and a jumbo roll of paper towels are provided as well free of charge.

The master bathroom boasts a separate tub and large shower double sinks and commode. The second, smaller bathroom has a shower, one sink and commode. Each bathroom is finished in simple and clean white metro tile. Plenty of white fluffy towels are provided as well. A starter pack of shampoo, conditioner and bath gel is provided in each bathroom as well as 3 rolls of toilet tissue and one box of kleenex. Hair dryers are also provided.

A washer and dryer in the unit make it easy to bring less clothes and go home with them clean. Laundry detergent and dryer sheets are provided.

A decorative fireplace in the living room and wedding cake crown mouldings add character and history to this wonderful home.

Each of the 4 televisions feature basic cable and roku boxes with crackle and netflix so you can relax, watch tv or a film. A blue ray dvd player is available in the living room. High speed free internet service via wifi is available throughout the unit. A printer is available as well to print out your boarding passes or any other business needs you have.

Amenities for the little ones are available upon request. Including a pack n play, stroller, and high chair.

Please enjoy the suggestions for things to do, places to eat & shop and sights to see as well as the history of our neighborhood in our 'guest book'. Instructions for smart tvs, printer, internet passcode and more are all included in this book.

Car: Recommended

Location! Location! You can enjoy all that LA and Hollywood have to offer minutes away and come 'home' to a quiet residential neighborhood in the heart of it all!

We are centrally located between the San Fernando Valley and the Beach. Only 7 miles from the Film Studios in Burbank (Warner Brothers & Universal) and 10 miles to the beach and the airport in the other direction. We are right around the corner from Paramount Studios as well as CBS Studios.

Located just Southwest of Hollywood and a few blocks from West Hollywood,

A 5 minute drive to the East is the quaint Larchmont Village. A 'local' spot for a fabulous Sunday Farmer's market, many restaurants and great coffee shops & ice cream shops as well as some wonderful local specialty shops.

You are only 2 miles from the Heart of Hollywood. See the sights on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, stop by Grauman's Chinese Theatre to see the handprints of the Stars, The Wax Museum and Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum are always great fun as well.

For shopping and the occasional celebrity spotting take a 5 minute stroll West to The Grove at Farmers Market, only a few blocks away. Next to the Grove is Pan Pacific Park where you can run, relax, and picnic. There are several playgrounds for the kids, and many fields for soccer, baseball & more. The Original Farmer's Market, established in 1934 is nearby at 3rd & Fairfax. It has both fresh produce every day as well as great restaurants of all types, from Parisian crepes to Mexican tacos, to Indonesian fare, Brazilian dishes and more. The whole family can find something they like with the variety at this outdoor market.

A morning hike at nearby Runyan Canyon is a must for the vacationer as is a scenic drive on Mullholland Drive. Lookout points along the drive will give you amazing views you've only seen in the movies of both Los Angeles and 'the Valley'. Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Six Flags at Magic Mountain are all within a 45 minute drive. Universal Studios City Walk & Theme Park are a mere 15 minutes away. You can even take the subway there from Hollywood!

There are many great restaurants at The Grove as well as on Beverly Boulevard and LaBrea that are within walking distance.

If you are interested in sporting events, theater, concerts or other live music events, we are located within 5-15 minutes from the Staples Center & Nokia theatre, Dodger's stadium, the world famous Sunset Strip, the Kodak Theater (home to the Oscar's), the Pantages Theatre, the Wiltern, the El Rey, the Hollywood Palladium and many many more.

We are equidistant from the Bob Hope airport in Burbank and LAX International airport. We are about 10 miles from horseback riding at Griffith Park and 10 miles to the Beaches in the other direction.

Explore the 'non-Hollywood' part of LA too nearby and treat yourself to the rich traditions and cuisines in nearby Thai town, Korea Town, China Town & Little Tokyo.

Los Angeles also boasts a thriving art and cultural community and we are nearby the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art as well as the Geffen at MOCA, the Disney Center, The LA Museum of Natural History, the LA Tar Pits & Paige Museum and the Los Angeles Zoo.

You can't beat our location to explore all LA has to offer without spending your day in the car. We are in the center of it all!


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: I am originally from the East Coast via Philadelphia & New York and settled in Los Angeles in 1999. I met my husband, originally from LA, in Los Angeles and we have a young son. I have worked in Entertainment for much of my adult life in both Music and Film. I also love design and real estate and owning Vacation Rentals has been a wonderful experience for me.

Why La Brea, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
We bought this property in 2001 after living in the neighborhood for years. We lovingly renovated and restored it to its 1936 grandeur and added all the conveniences of modern living.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The location of this property cannot be beat. We are truly in the heart of everything yet still in a quiet residential neighborhood. You can walk to a lot but come home to the peaceful tree-lined street where neighbors walk their kids and dogs and chat with each other as locals do.
