Overview

About the property

In View Of The Hollywood Sign, Close To Food, Cocktails And Attractions

**** 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.

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***

About Herbert

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

Why Herbert chose Los Angeles County

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?

What makes this apartment unique

Walking distance to attractions, restaurants, entertainment.....

I'm so happy we picked this home!

  • 5 of 5

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!

The property was exactly as pictured in the listing, clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, comfortable and welcoming upon arrival. The location in Hollywood was great, convenient to many attractions, Ubers usually 2 minutes away when booked. Herbert, the owner, was gracious and waiting for me upon my arrival. I would definitely recommend this property, it was gated with a nice courtyard for general use - I felt safe and secure. I will definitely book this property again when visiting Los Angeles.

Very nice clean and centrally located

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with our stay overall. Centrally located, all amenities and furnishings were provided and in good order.

The only problem is that the slatted blinds on the doors and windows do not stop the morning light, and after 6 am it's impossible to sleep. I would suggest putting thick heavy curtains with "blackout" material so that guests can sleep in late.

Also an exhaust fan to suck out the odours from the bathroom would be good.

Given the opportunity, I would definitely choose this property to stay again on my next visit.

Thank you very much!

Owner's Response: I'm always pleased when my guests enjoy themselves.....and I sincerely wish the issues raised were brought to my attention during the stay rather than subsequent to it. This would have allowed me the opportunity to address them and enhance the overall experience.

Excellent Location and Atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Herbert was such a treat to work with. Our condo was clean and adorable. Parking was a bit of a challenge, but completely worth the price point and experience :) Our accommodations were like a little oasis from the big city.

Great vacation rental and location!

The rental was cozy and clean and Herbert was extremely helpful and accommodating. It was conveniently located to major tourist sites within walking distance. We will definitely look to return in the future.

Cozy, well furnished studio!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first VRBO experience and I can only hope that all the rest of them are this wonderful! My flight arrived at 730 in the morning and Herbert was very flexible about meeting me at the rental early. Luckily, there wasn't a renter the previous day so I was able to get in and get settled right away. For just myself, this rental was the perfect size. Even if my husband would have been there we would have had plenty of room. The rental was clean and well furnished. The bed was comfortable. The kitchen had the basics if I would have chose to actually cook. I did use the coffee pot and was thankful for the coffee supplies that were supplied. Bonus! The location was perfect for me. Walking distance to many restaurants and shopping. I used an Uber/Lyft to get to most of my destinations farther than a mile. And yes, I felt safe in the neighborhood and in the rental. Each unit has a coded entry that is changed with each renter.. There is a cute courtyard that all the tenants share. There is a shared washer/dryer as well. My ONLY negative, my neighbors were pretty noisy. I was gone most of the time and so it really didn't bother me much, but when I was there...yeah...they were loud. There is a lot of street noise as well, sirens, cars, ect, but that doesn't bother me either. I actually like that better than pure silence. I would absolutely stay here again when I return to LA. And would recommend this place to anyone else looking for a rental! Thank you Herbert for the wonderful communication and perfect 1st VRBO experience!

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.

FAST FOOD:

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.

GROCERY STORES:

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)

OTHER:

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.

TRANSPORTATION:

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.
