LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
The central location of this duplex is ideal for Los Angeles' many attractions. Within a few minutes of the duplex you will find the epicenter (an L.A. metaphor) of L.A.'s restaurant, theatre, club and bar scene as well as attractions such as the Hollywood Bowl, Pantages Theatre, Universal Studios, Amoeba Records, Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Grove, the Farmer's Market, Chinese Theatre, Jimmy Kimmel Show, Melrose Shopping District, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Petersen Automotive Museum, the Greek Theatre, and the Griffith Park Observatory.
Downtown attractions such as Disney Hall, the Music Center, Dodger Stadium, L.A. Live, MOCA, and the Natural History Museum are short drives away.
What makes this duplex's location especially terrific is its close proximity to a gem - the commercial heart of Larchmont Village. Larchmont Village is the quintessential L.A. neighborhood, with its eclectic mix of shops, coffee houses, restaurants, bagel joints, and a not to be missed Sunday Farmer's Market.
Freeway access for trips to Venice and Santa Monica beaches, Disneyland, The Getty Center and Villa, Pasadena, Santa Anita, and Long Beach is nearby. For beach trips, the duplex comes equipped with beach chairs and beach towels.
This place has it all - a location on a quiet street in the heart of all LA has to offer, a beautiful, air conditioned, spacious, welcoming living space all in a 1920's duplex with 21st century amenities. The perfect combination that will make for a perfect L.A. experience.

I am a 60 something native Californian with a passion for L.A. My wife and I have lived here our entire lives with the exception of 4 years at Berkeley. It is often said that 'there is no place like home'. It is our goal that your VRBO experience at our duplex will truly feel like a home away from home, and help make your visit to Los Angeles memorable.
Dennis purchased this House in 2014
Why Dennis chose Larchmont
We chose this duplex because we have always been enamored with the style and warmth of L.A. architecture circa the 1920's, the beautiful neighborhoods of Hancock Park and Larchmont Village, and the vibrancy of Hollywood. With the 2014 remodel of the duplex featuring great new surfaces, fixtures and appliances, the charm and comfort that was already there, was beautifully enhanced. Our wonderful rental property has been a labor of love, and it shows.

Comfortable, spacious upper duplex
My family and I stayed here for a week. It was quiet, comfortable and very convenient. The rooms are large, airy and nicely furnished, and there was plenty of space for all of us. The third bedroom, which is really a den with a futon, would benefit from blackout blinds as there are windows all around and it was too bright for our toddler to nap in during the day. Other than that (and a shortage of drinking glasses), we couldn't have asked for anything better.
Fantastic place great location.
Great little neighborhood Near Hollywood Dennis was great in communicating. Will definitely stay again and "highly" recommend this place. Exceeded our expectations.
Great place to stay!
We were in LA to watch my son run his first marathon. This house was roomy, clean and in a great neighborhood. We walked to shops and lunch and had a great time overall.
Great base to explore LA
Well located, large, very clean and well fitted out apartment. Dealing with the owners was prompt and professional.
We would stay there again.
Super comfortable family getaway in the heart of Hollywood.
We stayed here for 5 nights with 2 boys (11& 15) and my mother-in-law. Very comfortable and spacious for the 5 of us. Perfectly situated in Hollywood and convenient to all of the things we wanted to do -- LACMA, La Brea, Universal Studios, Griffith Observatory, Paramount Studios, Walk of Fame, etc. There are even some nice restaurants within walking distance (Osteria la Buca, Lemonade). We spent practically no time on the freeways as a result. The rooms are well-appointed, the design choices are thoughtful, and all was in good repair -- shampoo and conditioner in bathrooms was a nice touch. Could have used some basic supplies in the kitchen -- paper towels, plastic wrap, tin foil, napkins, etc. Getting in & out of the driveway was a bit tight but we had no problems. And communications with the owners was minimal, but fortunately all went smoothly for us so there was no need. All in all, we had a lovely time and would highly recommend this place to other families wanting to experience the heart of Hollywood.
Beautiful Hollywood Retreat
We found this property to be everything as advertised and more. Our stay was for 2 nights with 4 adults. The property has plenty of room for us along with good size bedrooms.
We will definitely stay there again.
