Overview

About the property

Spacious, fun, Centrally located!

Welcome to Hollywood! 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!

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 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 available and the couches (though they 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. There is laundry, dishwasher, microwave, stove, oven, Super high speed wifi, a massage chair, cable, an AC/heat unit in the living room, TVs in each bedroom, Directv, and it has its own entrance. The Bathroom and lighting has just been remodeled, the furniture newly reupholstered, and 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 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 ours, 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!

WALKING DISTANCE to:

Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hollywood & Highland, Tours of the Stars Homes, Kodak Theatre, Disney's El Capitan Theatre, Grauman's Chinese Theater, Madam Tussauds, Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood & Vine, Pantages Theatre, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Hollywood Christmas Parade, as well as the newest and hottest night clubs, bars, & restaurants in Los Angeles.

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!

Cute place, HARD beds, no parking, steep stairs

  • 2 of 5

Ok like every place there are pro's and con's. Let's start with the pro's

PRO'S

Good location

Weird, but cool

Nice art and furnishings

Nice kitchen

CON'S

The beds are HARD as a rock. Couldn't sleep in the master. Had to use an air mattress.

Second bedroom has no door, and is adjacent to the kitchen

Two foot step to get out of the tub, dangerous situation

NO PARKING on the street you get a permit. Received a parking ticket while I was there.$68

Steep stairs, no place for young kids or elderly

A.C. is one window unit in the living room, nothing in the bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Hey Tony! We appreciate your stay, but it’s quite unfair to give us such a poor review when all these features are clearly mentioned in the listing. Perhaps you don’t realize how important our reviews are to our business and livelihood, nor the pride we take in keeping a beautiful property. I would like to address your ‘cons’ list. The mattress in the master where you stayed is firm, but not because it’s a bad mattress, it is a $5000 European deal with special magnets in it etc. firm and soft are a matter of taste. I did see once you were gone that the feather bed topping that is normally present was missing. I have asked the housekeeper about why that was not present. You wouldn’t have received a parking ticket if you had the permit provided in your window. What kind of ‘area’ is appropriate for kids and the elderly? Everything is shown in the photos, if you needed some kind of playroom, you should have already known the features of the property. The property generally does not get excessively hot, as it has floors above and below it, and if you leave the ac unit running in hot weather, it stays very cool throughout. We hear your note on that however, and already had plans for 2 other ac units underway. The price you rented the property for is less than the price of the unit completely empty as a long term rental. The same size property with my neighbor, but with parking, is charging $275/night and up. Please take that in consideration when writing future reviews. Thank you for your business, and safe travels to where ever you are headed next.

Very pleasant , but not fr folks with mobility issues

  • 4 of 5

Property was perfect for us in every way except the number of steps involved to enter the apartment and a few of the steps inside. Elderly folks or people like us with temporary mobility issues Need to consider this.
