Overview

About the property

Spacious, fun, Centrally located!

Welcome to Hollywood! Beautiful 1400 square foot 2 bedroom in a Spanish-Style fourplex built in 1926 with views of Hollywood Hills in the charming, historic neighborhood of HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS.

Hollywood Living at it's Finest! Just 5 BLOCKS from the Metro and the world-famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre, yet still private and intimate. Why drive when it's a quick walk down to EVERYTHING? Want to go to the Hollywood Bowl? Four blocks. Get on the freeway? Five blocks, yet it is completely unheard and unseen. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!

The master has lovely views and its own direct access to the bathroom. the 2nd bedroom is partially separated by drapes (see photos), and both bedrooms have queen beds. There is an inflatable queen mattress and full mattress available. The couches do not pull out. This property is ideal for two, can easily fit four-six, though for six guests we prefer you rent our larger property in the same building (#208878). There is laundry, dishwasher, microwave, stove, oven, New refrigerator, high speed wifi, a massage chair, an AC/heat unit in the living room and master bedroom, TVs in each bedroom, Directv, recessed lighting throughout, and it has its own entrance. We are constantly upgrading our properties' amenities. The entrance is down 18 steps from street level, so this property is not wheelchair accessible, though the entire unit is on one level.

Originally built for a silent film star, this building has had a long history of famous tenants, including the Oscar-Winning screenwriter of 'The Sting' and many famous actors and actresses!

PLEASE READ: There is NO assigned parking, but available street parking which is permit (we have a guest pass for your use).

There is a 3-Night Minimum stay unless there's last minute vacancy, and there is a $100 cleaning fee :-) Please see our other listing VRBO 208878 if you have a larger group. it is a HUGE 3+3 in the same building, so you also may book both to accommodate your party. This property is NOT appropriate for parties and late night antics, given its position in the building, but is wonderful for travelers, tourists and small families. For your safety and yours, the entrance is on camera. If there is no damage found, the damage deposit is refunded automatically directly from VRBO after 7 days. There is NO smoking in this property!

When making a request, please send a VRBO EMAIL request first before calling. We try to keep thorough electronic records so we can better serve you and avoid booking complications!

Great value in this Holllywood Heights home!

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed! Came here for the weekend to stay with some friends, it was perfect. A very cozy house with a whole lot of that old-hollywood-charm! You can tell that the owner puts a lot of pride and character into the home, even his own personality shines through. There are several design styles represented in the house from modern to retro that make it appealing to many tastes. Kevin (the owner) was very accommodating considering it was a last minute booking.

The layout makes the house feel very big. We were there with exactly 6 people (3 couples.) Keep in mind that the second bedroom is separated but with curtains, however there is privacy. It was kept very clean and the surrounding neighborhood felt safe. We actually talked with neighbors and they were great!

There is anything that you would need fore a home away from home, blankets, kitchen items and gadgets, washer dryer, etc.

I would definitely stay here again, considering the price, value, and closeness to everything!

Fantastic location and plenty of space!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the setup of the apartment and to anyone concerned, the two window units cool the entire space very well, even in 90+ degree temps. The location could not be better and we never had an issue finding parking on the street - even when there were events at the Hollywood Bowl. Universal Studios is about 10 minutes away and you can walk to the Hollywood Bowl/Strip. Kevin responded quickly when the dishwasher wasn't getting power (breaker was tripped, easy fix) and we had zero issues with anything else. The bathroom is also very large, which is rare in standard LA apartments. Would definitely stay here again!

Chic unit, cool location, but noisy

  • 3 of 5

This property is in a cool location in the Hollywood hills. Felt like a local vibe. Kevin is a very responsive host and was available when we needed him. My reasoning for the 3 stars is that this property is directly under another unit and you can hear people walking back and forth and up/down the stairs. Unfortunately for us (not Kevin’s fault) the people above us were awake all night long, playing loud music and walking around making it impossible to sleep. For deep sleepers, likely not a problem. Otherwise, the unit is chic and spacious. Street parking was only an issue when there was an event at the Bowl however is not for an anxious driver as the streets are narrow and winding. Overall we were happy with the unit and Kevin’s responsiveness but disappointed with the noise from people upstairs. Would not stay in this unit again but would stay in he unit above us if we chose to return.

Nothing short of Amazing

  • 5 of 5

From communication with the home owner Kevin, to the stay within itself this was a great experience. The unique location of this unit gives you an experience in the Hills of Hollywood and is definitely unlike any visit to California I have had. I stayed with 2 other individuals and the unit accommodated us with no problems. Book this property with confidence and know you will have an amazing experience! Thanks Kevin for a pleasant and enjoyable stay, will book again in the future!
