About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)



Charming, contemporary, smoke-free home hidden away in Hollywood Hills. Home features stunning, modern and newly updated furniture and beds and mattresses throughout. Snuggle up in the living room in front of the free-standing, cast iron fireplace as you peer out spectacular floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing wooded canyon views with the twinkling lights of the valley in the distance.

Or, serve up dinner out on the deck – no traffic up here – and take in the views and quiet of hill living.

Later, walk up the walnut stairs (stunning walnut hardwood floors are practically everywhere) to a balcony overlooking the living room, then head into one of two upstairs bedrooms and step out onto another deck, with even more spectacular views.

You simply won’t find more seclusion, more charm, and nicer views at anything approaching this price!

And now, if you want to spice up your stay even more, we can provide a private in-house chef to make a gourmet meal or give cooking lessons for you and your guests. We also offer a private masseuse to come to your home and provide a soothing massage. See 'Other Amenities' section below for more information.

House features one king size bed (sleeps 2) in the master bedroom, one queen size bed (sleeps 2) in one upstairs bedroom, and two twins (sleep 2) in the other upstairs bedroom, a full size fold down sofa futon in the living room, as well as a high-quality inflatable sleeper that sleeps up to 2 more.

It also features a 42 inch, 3D, wifi-enabled TV in the living room, a 32 inch, 3D, wifi-enabled TV in the master bedroom .

(So, for example, eight people would be $210 per night for the first six people, then $10 per night for the next two people, or $20 per night more for the additional two people. $210 + $20 = $230 per night for eight people.)

Bright and Airy Hillside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property is bright and clean and very comfortable. The owners obviously take great pride in their property by the care they take in it's upkeep and presence.

It is tucked away on a quiet street in the Hollywood Hills and is literally minutes from grocery stores and Universal Studios (as we found near the end of our stay).

The house was well stocked overall (towels, soap, shampoo, etc.), as well as having plenty of kitchen essentials including cooking utensils and tools. The welcome goody basket on check-in was also a nice touch. The bed linens were very nice, clean, and good quality and the beds were very comfortable.

Kurt and Mia had very good communication with us before during and after our stay. They were very quick to respond when we had any questions or concerns during our stay and promptly addressed them.

There is also a small/new mom and pop Mexican restaurant nearby that we found called "Tere's Mexican Grill" if you like reasonably priced, authentic, fresh food.

I would highly recommend staying at this property.

Just as good the second time around

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at Kurt and Mia's property. I would have stayed here on numerous other trips to LA, but the house is always booked and for good reason. This property has all the comforts of home while being tucked away on a quiet street in the Hollywood Hills. You are minutes from all the action of Hollywood and Universal but you also feel a million miles away whilst at the house. They provide basic essentials you may need during your stay and some extras you wouldn't usually expect, such as the welcome goody basket with a variety of snacks. Check in and check out are a breeze and everything you need to know about the place is clearly laid out for you in the property's manual. This info is also sent to you via email prior to arrival.

Thanks again for a great stay!

WOW! Beautiful house in hideaway hills location

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home is truly a gem. From first contact with Kurt and Mia (owners) they were both extremely helpful and went out of their way to help us, particularly finding suitable Christmas Day restaurants. Both responded immediately to emails. When we arrived at the property after a long 16 hour journey on Christmas Eve we found a lovely welcome pack and card. The property itself is outstanding - immaculately clean with everything you could wish for. Location is perfect - an extremely safe neighbourhood nestled up in the hills, so peaceful and quiet you would not know you were in LA! But a few minutes in the car and you can get to all the tourist hotspots. My son and I enjoyed our morning run up over the hill into the fabulous Runyon Canyon which is beautiful for running, hiking or just soaking up the views. For tennis lovers we found public courts at Griffiths Park, a short 15 minute car journey. From here you can also hike up and get close to the Hollywood signature landmark sign. If you fancy the beach, take a trip to Paradise Cove in Malibu - great food at the beach restaurant, then lay on their complimentary beach beds to top up the tan. You honestly will love this house and location if you rent. Truly a fabulous family Christmas vacation for us - thank you so much Kurt and Mia. If I could live there permanently I would! the house is fabulous. Best regards, Flis Wagstaff and family

Awesome house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was by far one of the best rentals I've stayed at in the past few years. A few friends and I were attending an event that was hosted in Hollywood and chose this property as it seemed it would fit our needs.The pictures and descriptions of the property were accurate and exceeded our expectations. The little extras like the welcome basket were really a great touch.The property owners, Mia and Kurt, were extremely accommodating and responded to any and all questions we had prior to and during our stay.

The house itself was clean and welcoming. The location can't be beat. You really can hide away from the city in this hidden gem. With one quick drive up the hill you get transported from the chaos of tourists and traffic and your find yourself relaxed and "at home" sipping wine by the fire in a calm and quiet atmosphere.

I will most certainly be renting this home again and I can't wait to recommend this house to any of my friends that plan on visiting the LA area.
