About the property

Bedrooms 4, Bathrooms 5, Sleeps 8

This opulent Villa Sofia is a Spanish-Moorish architectural masterpiece by world-renowned designer Jorge Dalinger. Inspired by his childhood in Sevilla, Spain, he has created an iconic Hollywood Hills jewel estate that takes you back in time. Located in the Hollywood Hills above the Sunset Strip, this amazing property is private and gated and sits on over half an acre providing more than enough room for you and your guests.

The entire home is a work of art, from the 16th century style hand-carved wood ceiling imported from Spain, to the antique walnut wood and stone floors throughout. The rustic atmosphere blends wonderfully with the authentic Moroccan and Middle Eastern interior design making the interior and you stay truly memorable.

Large wooden and glass doors open to the large patio, grassy yard, sparkling pool, and deck complete with large day beds and cabanas for an ultimate day of relaxation. A private gazebo is perched at the top of the hill, perfect for alfresco dining and watching the sunset at the end of another dreamy Southern California day.

Step into the billiard room for a perfect way to wind down with games and cocktails. The large eat-in kitchen has comfortable seating areas and is designed with a professional quality chef in mind. The open, formal dining room seats sixteen for the ultimate dinner party and evening of entertainment with friends. After dinner retire to the oversized cozy living room with comfy sofas, a luxurious fireplace and beautiful hand-carved furniture and fixtures.

Heading up the stunning, wood-carved staircase to the second level with four bedrooms, no detail is amiss in this architects dream home. The master suite features a king-sized bed and en suite bath with ornate soaker tub overlooking the garden, while the other bedrooms feature queen sized beds and bathrooms both en suite and separate.

This is truly one of the most amazing homes you could stay at while visiting Los Angeles, and a fabulous location to host your dream wedding, important corporate event or a memorable reunion.

I stayed at this particular house/estate for my winter break with my family. It was very big and spacious and worth every penny. I had such an amazing experience and had fun with my family as well. Great to share with family and friends for special occasions/ holidays! The pool and hot tube was great as well, the weather was always pretty nice during the day and at night!

Beauty At its Best

  • 5 of 5

had an amazing time at this rental. No one really comments on these message boards when things go well, they usually just come on here to complain. House was clean and ready for us upon arrival. . Loved the balcony/deck. Wifi could have been better but that's about it. Group of 9 guys stayed comfortably. Had plenty of fun making our own small barbecue party on the pool side and the lighting at night made us have a feeling of Abu Dhabi in Dubai. Definitely would use this rental in the future.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

This estate was amazing. I stayed here for a week with my girlfriend and her parents. (We share the same anniversary). Couldn't have been better. Spacious rooms and a wonderful hot tub. It was a great time for us. It was very quiet and tho we were in the Hollywood hills I felt as if I was on a secluded island. I didn't want to leave.

Pasadena, Ca

Our group of couples has made this spot our favorite and already agreed on returning next year.

  • 5 of 5

We like most friends are a group a four couples that has religiously got together every year after high school and went somewhere nice for vacation. We had a blast here for a week of relaxsation and celebrating another year of hard work.

This is a beautiful place during the day and even more at night. Its huge first off and the weather is always great.This is where you need to be at if you want to party with style and relax .

Best part is having a professional chef. The meals were delicious and flavorful.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Well my normal vacation home was already booked so I was not fortunate enough to have an advanced notice to book it. However I was more than satisfied with this luxurious house in the hills. The view is just absolutely breath taking. I will most likely choose this property for my trip next month again.

I was in heaven at this wonderful property. It was so unbelievably gorgeous and luxurious. It was so much better than staying at a hotel. My friends and I had a spectacular time here and we would come here again in a heartbeat. The pool was absolutely marvelous. I would definitely recommend this estate to anyone wanting something different than the norm.
