|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
**** [Check out my other listings #837148 & #837784]; I have three units, each similar square footage, amenities, and right next door to one another in the same building. I do my best to see that you are checked into the unit you booked, but occasionally circumstances require a shift to another unit. (Check in time is 2:00 PM on the first day of the reservation unless otherwise arranged; Check out time is 12:00 Noon on the last day of the reservation)] ****
This is a STUDIO apartment with one queen size bed, located in the heart of Hollywood's Media District, close to West Hollywood, restaurants, shopping, theaters, clubs and all the services you will need.... in a controlled access (keyed entry) courtyard complex with old world Spanish flavor.
This unit has all appliances: Stove, Refrigerator, built in Microwave, Toaster, Coffee Maker, Electric Teapot, as well as A/C, WiFi & LIGHT WEEKLY MAID SERVICE TOO!
It's been updated (granite counters, maple cabinets), but still holds all of the 1920's Spanish style charm.
Parking is street parking, and as I've experienced, other than on street cleaning days (Monday and Tuesday on alternating sides between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM), there is usually a space available close to the building.
The unit also features an on site laundry room, cable television with, plus a CD and DVD player.
You are NOT moving into someone else's place while they are on vacation. This apartment is furnished and set up as a short or long term corporate/executive rental.
Utilities are entirely included.
***In deference to those with sensitivities, this is a No Smoking/No Pets Unit. Smoking is permitted outside the unit, of course***
You really don't want to miss it!
My goal is to assure that your experience with me is a positive one, and I ask only that you treat the property and fellow guests with the respect and consideration you would expect for yourself.
Many of my guests are repeat customers, which is the finest kind of reference! I wear all the hats, i.e., owner, cleaner, handyman, banker, bookkeeper, and customer service representative........my phone is always on and if I'm awake, I answer it!
Herbert purchased this apartment in 2003
The courtyard setting is what gets the most comment for its warm and welcoming attributes. What could be better than enjoying your morning coffee next to the trickling fountain in the dappled sunlight that sneaks through the canopy of trees?
Walking distance to attractions, restaurants, entertainment.....
Herbert was so kind & went above & beyond to make sure we knew how to get around the house & the area. He made sure we knew how parking worked & how to get into our place easily. (SPOILER ALERT) The photo really does it no justice! Its way bigger & more comfortable inside for 2 people! Overall I'm happy it was money well spent & super affordable I'd recommend & will definitely stay here again. I felt really at home thank you Herbert!
My girlfriend and I stayed here April 6-11. Let me start off by saying delta delayed our arrival by 12 hours. We arrived in LA around 2:30am. Herbert kept great communication with us throughout the ordeal and waited for us in the wee hours of the night. Meeting Herbert was the first positive thing to happen to us during that miserable day. Upon entering the unit, we were surprised at how large the studio was compared to the pictures. Definitely a plus. The room was clean and certainly comfortable, offering more than enough space and storage for a week vacation. This place is also in a prime location. Everything we could have asked for. It's just a 15 minute walk to Hollywood blvd. We also felt incredibly safe in the area, allowing us to walk to bars at night (highly recommend sassafras saloon on vine st). Overall I would highly recccomend this location. It beats staying at a hotel by a hundred dollars and offers much more privacy and comfort when compared to a hotel. Herbert made a miserable arrival fantastic and easy and set the tone for our vacation. I know that I will be a returning customer in the future.
Herbert was very nice, he met us at the apartment when we arrived at the arranged time. He had just finished cleaning, and the linens were freshly washed. The place smelled clean which was a big plus for me. The bed was very, very comfortable! The kitchen needed a little extra cleaning, but I think that may have been from the last renters that he didn't notice. Not a huge issue. Parking was okay. We had to circle a couple times at night, however, based on previous reviews, that was expected and we were never far away. We would definitely stay at this location again.
It was mine and my friends first time in LA and we couldn't have found a better place then this cozy home. Everywhere we went was within minutes from the house. We also loved the fact that it was a gated home it gave a sense of safety. Universal studio and city walk was about a ten minute ride from the home which was awesome. I could go on and on about my experience here, overall I would defiently recommend staying here. Planning on renting again this year if available:)
Good Hollywood location, walking distance to the Metro, buses and the tourist areas of Hollywood/Vine and Hollywood/Highland. Herbert was helpful and the unit was nice and clean. Perhaps a lockbox for the street gate would be beneficial for immediate entry on arrival. Wifi was fast and as we received the cleaning fee refund right away. We would recommend to anyone who needs a central Hollywood location.
Los Angeles, CA 90038
This neighborhood is fast becoming a 'walking' neighborhood, with most all of your needs being met without ever having to get behind the wheel!
Sunset Boulevard is 6 blocks north (left as you exit the access gate onto Wilcox Avenue) of the property, and Hollywood Boulevard (which features the famous 'Walk of Fame' and Grauman's Chinese Theater, where the stars of yesteryear and yesterday have left their hand and foot prints in cement for us and for posterity) is 2 more blocks in the same direction.
You'll be walking toward the Hollywood Sign, which will come into view as you get past the CNN building that's blocking it from your front door.....
Located on Sunset, and its side street tributaries, you'll find restaurants of diverse proclivities, from vegetarian to carnivore and many in between.
FOOD WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE:
Umami Burger (1520 Cahuenga Blvd #7, 90028; 323-469-3100). Truffles are their not-so-secret ingredient. It's tricky to find because it's in....well, hard to describe the building it's in. If you walk east on Sunset (right turn if you're coming from Wilcox) then turn north (left) on Cahuenga, you'll encounter Space 15 Twenty, and within you'll find various shops and stores...and Umami Burger.
Stout (on Cahuenga), a patio bar/restaurant. They have an eclectic array of beers, AND a truffle burger.
Be sure to specify in both these places how you want your burger cooked as their default is medium rare.
Kitchen 24 (1608 N Cahuenga, 90028; 323-465-2424). It can be acoustically noisy (cement walls that magnify the sound if it's full of talkers), and features modern basic fare. If you're looking for an all around place, this one works.
Chicken Dijon Rotisserie & Grill (6282 Hollywood Blvd, 90028; 323-463-4050; ) has a wide choice of salads and wraps (upscale cafeteria; quick service and relatively healthy, tasty food) that are built around, as you might guess, chicken. Many 'locals' go here for lunch.
Urban Masala (6554 Hollywood Boulevard; 323-957-9999) features Indian cuisine and was recommended by a recent guest if you have a craving for curry.
The Melt (6290 Sunset Blvd, 90028; 213-344-4906) serves just what the name implies: Cheese sandwiches. I had the short rib on sourdough with black bean soup….delicious. Would definitively return.
La Numero Uno Restauraunt (1247 Vine Street; 323-957-1111) serves Latin cuisine. Highly recommended by a discerning guest and great reviews on Google, and well within walking distance, about 6 blocks east.
Pizza Hut (6660 W Sunset Blvd)
Subway (6051 Hollywood Blvd; 1813 N Cahuenga Blvd; 6660 Sunset Blvd)
McDonalds (1413 N Vine; 6776 Hollywood Blvd)
Crazy Rockin Sushi (7100 Santa Monica Blvd)
Chipotle Mexican Grill (1460 Vine)
Starbucks (6102 W Sunset Blvd)
'Alcove' (casual) and 'Off Vine' (fine dining). I encourage you to check out the reviews on 'Yelp' for a more thorough report and location information on these establishments.
Trader Joes (1600 N Vine: .75 Miles--about 8 blocks), located at Selma and Vine (Selma is 1 block south of Sunset, Vine is 4 blocks east of Wilcox).
Ralph's Grocery (1233 N LaBrea: 1.1 miles; 5429 N Highland Ave: 1.1 miles)
Walgreens (5451 W Sunset Blvd: .99 miles; 1050 N Highland Ave: 1.03 miles)
On Sundays there is an open air Farmer's Market in the 1500 block of Ivar Avenue between Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards (left on Wilcox, right on Sunset) where you can get fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers. It is open between 8 AM. - 1 PM.
To/From LAX Airport: ($20 per person, flat rate); ($26 one person, $9.00 each additional person)
This site will provide you with scheduling, route, and fare information for the Metro Bus and Subway system.
Zip car (1529 N Cahuenga; 323-866-4508) is an innovative company that rents cars for as little as $6.50 per hour. Great for those times when it’s too far to walk but you don’t necessarily need a vehicle full time. They have several pick up locations within blocks of the property.
Bikes and Hikes (323-796-8555; ) offers bicycle and hiking tours of Hollywood, as well as renting bicycles for personal use.
