About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Cottage w/View of The San Fernando Valley & Mountain Ranges

Nestled in the prestigious Hollywood Hills near Universal Studios, this private, single-family, 1 bedroom, 1 bath home boasts amazing views of the San Fernando Valley and mountain ranges. Fully furnished; two patios; garage; laundry; gas BBQ grill; minutes to restaurants, shopping, freeways, and all Hollywood attractions. Pets welcome!

Built in 1932 the two-storey cottage was originally part of the estate of famous silent film director Clarence Badger. It was also the home of movie star Rock Hudson circa 1949.

Downstairs is an open space that includes a full kitchen with microwave and Keurig coffee maker, living room, and dining area. The living room/dining area features a large couch that can provide a comfy place to sleep for an additional guest, a dining table for 4, and a 50" flat screen TV with cable and Blu-ray player. Lots of movies are provided for your entertainment. Ceiling fans, downstairs and upstairs, keep the house cool in the summer.

A wrought iron staircase leads upstairs to a spacious bedroom suite that encompasses the entire second floor of the house. There is a queen-sized bed, a cozy sitting area, walk-in closet, a 27" flat screen TV w/cable, hardwood floors and fantastic views from every window. The bathroom has a claw-foot tub with shower and stained glass over the sink and on the window.

Off of each end of the bedroom suite is a fully-enclosed patio. The brick patio has a fountain, a small garden, a large tree that provides shade, and seating for 4; it's a wonderful tranquil place to sit and enjoy your morning coffee. The tile patio has a gas BBQ grill, a chiminea outdoor fireplace, and seating for 6. Sip your cocktails on the tile patio while you watch the sunset over the mountains.

PARKING: There is reserved parking on the street directly in front of the cottage.

This is a very pet-friendly house; we love pets and all kinds and sizes of pets are welcome!

Balcony patios, our favorite spot for early morning coffee.

  • 4 of 5

Arrived to find a comfortable cottage and a welcoming greeting; thanks Tracey. We filled our week with many activities, all fairly close by. Our biggest challenge was parking, anywhere you go, parking was hard to find and could be costly. Uber to the rescue. The observatory, a fantastic experience was nearly abandoned due to the lack of parking.

Great Cottage in Hollywood Hills

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed here for a whole month as our first location in Los Angeles. We were in the process of shopping for a home to buy and figured we'd try out Hollywood. I will say that I absolutely loved this cottage! There's enough space for a couple (large living room/kitchen floor, and a large master), and two GREAT patios to either side of the master. We also had our pups with us, so we got a lot of exercise walking them around the neighborhood (it's hilly!). This neighborhood is absolutely gorgeous, and has some stellar views of the city. I would definitely stay here again if we ever have a need!

Amazing property and centrally located to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to LA. I was amazed to find that everything I wanted to do was within a couple of miles and minutes of this home. You can see Universal Studios from the upstairs. You can see the Hollywood sign when you're leaving the neighborhood. Hollywood Blvd. and Burbank studios are within 10 minutes. I would highly, highly recommend this home. It's very clean and comes fully stocked (except with a hairdryer...I think). Tracey was very accommodating. I cant wait to stay here again, if/when I come out again. I will recommend this home to everyone I know =-)

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our one week stay. Good space for two people. Nice view from the two patios. Cozy living room and kitchen downstairs. We used the laundry facilities and even grilled out one afternoon. No trouble with the parking for one car. Close to attractions, yet tucked away in the hills. The only downside for us were the stairs, which can be a little tricky to navigate. Overall would highly recommend.

Located in the Hollywood Hills on Woodrow Wilson Dr. at Pacific View Dr. in a quiet residential neighborhood, the cottage is only minutes to Universal Studios Hollywood, the Hollywood Bowl, Studio City, Burbank, restaurants and shopping, and all attractions in Hollywood. Within 1.5 miles of the cottage you will find: Universal Studios, LA Metro bus stop, 101 Hollywood Freeway, Starbucks, LA Fitness (day passes available), Convenience store, Dry cleaners, and In-N-Out Burger. Also, excellent restaurants such as Mercado Hollywood and Gary Arabia's GC Marketplace (both dog-friendly) are a short drive away. Dog owners will appreciate dog walking areas and trails in this dog-friendly neighborhood. Less than a 5-minute drive (or a 20-minute) walk will take you to Runyon Canyon Park, a popular off-leash dog area with fabulous views of the city and ocean.
