Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom / 4.5 Bathroom Sleeps 6-12

This house is a Hollywood home built in 1991. It is a true 'The Hills' home and keeps you out of the rat race of LA. I have lived here for the past six years and absolutely love waking up in the morning and walking throughout the Hills and all the way up to the sign and over to Griffith Park. Perfect for a vacation, long term rental, or temporary lodging for relocated executives. Located right in the heart of Hollywoodland, within walking distance of many of the world's most-famous attractions! Nestled right under the Hollywood sign at the top of Beachwood Canyon, this charming, private home features three levels.

'Coolest Pad' in the Hills, designed for entertaining. Sophisticated 4,650 sq', 3 bedroom, 4.5 bath, Architectural home. The spacious floor plan features walls of glass framing the expansive canyon and city light views with a peek of the ocean. Enter through double doors to a Vaulted 2-story foyer with skylight that leads to the step-down living room accented by a tall, polished stone fireplace and maple floors. Adjacent dining area shares the spectacular views. The Gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining with granite counters, maple and glass cabinetry, center island gas cook top, double ovens and a breakfast bar, and opens to a cozy den with large flat screen television. Wrap around deck with barbecue completes the main floor.

The second floor boasts a romantic master suite with a king size bed, 70' flatscreen, gas fireplace and huge walk-in closet and those amazing views. The gorgeous master bath has marble and travertine finishes, raised spa tub, dual sinks and a huge separate glass shower. Two more bedrooms with queen beds, patio doors with wrap around canyon view deck access, spacious closets, 2 additional bathrooms with showers complete the second level. We provide all the linens and towels, Soaps and Shampoos, and any supplies you will need for your stay.

This beautiful fully furnished home also has an entertainment level with media room, wet bar with 2 wine coolers, billiard area and gym equipped with a Precor Elliptical Trainer and all share the views. From here, two lower decks can be accessed for private sunbathing.

This fantastic living space is equipped with hi-tech wiring throughout, two sound systems with Pandora, 5 flat screen televisions with DirecTV PVR, DVD & CD players and a security system. We have high speed cable internet and WiFi coverage throughout. There is a land line available for guest use which allows for unlimited use throughout North America at no charge. There are seven cordless handsets throughout the property. Central air/heat with separate zones on each of the three levels, each with it's own Nest thermostat.

This home enjoys a double attached garage (one spot available) with kitchen access, state of the art laundry facilities and parking on the driveway as well the street. The property is on a quiet cul-de-sac with limited traffic.

This home is a true 'hills' home that keeps you out of the rat race of Hollywood while keeping you just a short drive from all of the excitement. Within walking distance to the Hollywood Sign and Beachwood Village the gorgeous weather is fully enjoyable. You will not be short of activities in Hollywood or Los Angeles, and with such a centralized location, you will be close to it all!!! Live in luxury while you visit Hollywood, and see for yourself where so many celebrities choose to live!!!!

Enjoy your trip to LA in this beautiful modern home in the highly coveted celebrity neighborhood of Hollywood Hills. Hope you love our home as much as we do!

About Dave Cousins

My wife and I primarily live in Canada, the cold winters there prompted us to buy this home in Los Angeles where it's alway's sunny and warm!

Dave Cousins purchased this house in 2011

Why Dave Cousins chose Los Angeles County

We rented for a few years in different neighborhoods and were drawn to this home and location because of it's close proximity to nature. It's a quiet and extremely friendly neighborhood. You'll wake up to deer climbing our hillside and yet your just a few minutes from all the Hollywood hot spots.

What makes this house unique

We are up high in the hills so the views are fantastic. The hidden hollywood staircases allow you to walk to the market or restaurant in 3 minutes. Have lunch at the Beachwood Cafe and you'll be surrounded by celebrities.

Best Vacation Home Experience!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the house with several friends for our annual get-together, and we were so impressed, we've decided we would like to stay at the house every year, if possible. Dave was extremely responsive to any questions or concerns we had, and he was very willing to work with us, even as a group of 20-somethings. The house is spacious and includes anything you could need. It can fit 12 comfortably on beds and air mattresses, but honestly, there would have been plenty of room for even more people, so it never felt cramped. Also, even without a car, we managed just fine. It's situated in a cozy location just a walk away from a tiny shopping center and a couple miles from Hollywood Blvd and the Walk of Fame. So whether you want a quiet hideaway, or a cozy, small European town feel, or the hustle and bustle of Hollywood, you have everything at your fingertips! I will definitely try to come back!

Very Impressuve!

  • 5 of 5

This home is an amazing retreat from the center of Hollywood, but is located in a quiet neighborhood high in the hills, yet is only a few minutes from everything. The spacious house is beautifully appointed with furnishings and fabulous views, especially at night. We had a group of nine. Dave was always quick to respond to our questions and was excellent in working out our accommodations. The house had everything we needed. This is a very comfortable place to stay when in the LA/Hollywood area. The Hollywood sign is only a short hike away. I highly recommend this property.

unforgettable

  • 5 of 5

I have to say this was my first experience with home away and I have no regrets. If I could give this experience more than 5 stars I would. The house location is perfect; an easy walk up to the Hollywood sign or Hollywood Boulevard in the opposite direction. The Venice Venice Beach boardwalk and Santa Monica Beach are only a 40 minute drive, and Universal Studios is less than that. This neighborhood is where many Hollywood icons live and you very likely will bump into celebrities. My wife and daughter walked down the street to have their hair done and had an NCIS actor sit down right next to them and strike up a conversation! As for the house - it is fantastic! We cooked out on the deck grill several nights while we watched the sunset over the Hollywood Hills. Every room was perfectly done - I really don't know where to start! Dave was a fantastic host and left us tips and short cuts to use while on our stay. All I can say is that I was sorry to leave and I will rent this home again. If you are considering coming to this area - do yourself a favor and stay here. You won't be sorry.

Amasing LA house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely spacious and comfortable! We travelled with a large group of people and it was big enough to accomodate all 12 of us freely. There is a lot of living space that allows people to hang out, socialize, or spent time away from the crowd. This villa has lots of character that gives you this LA/ Hollywood vibe. Not to mention it is equipped with everything you may possibly need. The neighborhood is lovely and picturesque. We enjoyed amazing views on a park and a city from the house balconies, terraces, and the street.

The location is great as well. The villa is close to all the main LA atractions and sightseeing sites as well as restaurants and cafes.

The house owner Dave responded to our questions or requests promptly and was exceptionally helpful.

Thank you Dave for a great time we had in your house.

Trustworthy owner, perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

In addition to the detailed reviews of the former renters, it's important to let you know that Dave, the house owner, is very reliable. In this price range, this is very important for me.

I have always received a very quick response to my emails and Dave took care of all of my requests.

Situated in the historic beachwood canyon area beneath the famous hollywood sign, it's only a 5 minute walk down to the local market and coffee shop. A 10 minute walk up the hill puts you at the entrance path down to the hollywood reservoir, surrounded by a 3 mile round jogging path. Or take the other path, walk along the ridge line past Madonna's and Moby's house's to the child and dog park, right at the best lookout of the Hollywood Sign. Take a 5 minute ride or 10 minute walk to the top of the canyon to the horse stables, which have been there since 1923 and take a ride around the sign.

The house is only one mile from the 101 freeway, which gives quick and easy access to any los angeles attraction, Griffith Park, with over 4,000 acres of trails and activities, is only a few blocks away. We are close to bus lines, and the subway stop. Our neighborhood has everything you'll want for your stay, within a couple of blocks. You don't need a car to go to the grocery store, coffee shops, or restaurants. Our favorites are Cafe 101, an american diner, or the Beachwood Cafe both just a short walk from us.

Must see attractions, all within 3 miles or less:

- hollywood and highland center

- dolby theater (where the oscars are held!)

- chinese theater

- walk of fame on hollywood blvd.

- hollywood bowl

- hollywood & vine

- griffith park and observatory

- sunset ranch stables

- los angeles zoo and botanical garden

- universal studios and universal city walk

- the hollywood sign

- the hollywood reservoir

- pantages theater

- the hollywood palladium

- the magic castle

- the greek theater

- the arclight movie theatre

- madame tussauds hollywood

- jimmy kimmel studio

- gibson amphitheater

- runyon canyon park

You can't beat being within walking distance of some of the most historic, famous, entertaining, and fascinating, locations in the world -- where celebrity sightings are often reported.

Just another mile or two (within 5 miles of the house), you can get to the famous sunset strip (dotted with countless well-known clubs and venues, such as the laugh factory, house of blues, the viper room, the roxy, the comedy store, and much more!!), and many famous production studios (such as disney, warner brothers, and universal to name a few)

45 minutes to lax airport

20 minutes to bob hope airport

There is an endless amount of attractions and things to do, and i have only covered a small section so far. Travel just a little further, and visit the places that los angeles is famous for, such as:

- santa monica pier

- venice beach

- third street promenade

- malibu

- beverly hills and rodeo drive

- the grove and farmer's market

- staples center

- nokia theater at l.A. Live

- walt disney concert hall

- six flags magic mountain

- disneyland

- knott's berry farm

- redondo and manhattan beach, and much more.
