3 Bedroom 3 Bathroom, View Home

Part of The Modern Villas Hollywood collection, this home features over 1700 ft2 of breathtaking views.

Moments from Beachwood and Runyon Canyon, this home is an excellent fit for those who want to enjoy the outdoors and Southern California sunshine. The second bedroom can easily convert to a large office. This property excites the senses as the city lights reach out across the horizon. Each detail of the home has been carefully crafted to truly create an experience of a lifetime. The new 3rd penthouse bedroom and master bath on the very top level is spectacular and even has an outdoor kitchen!

This home can be rented as a 3 bedroom, or converted into a 4 bedroom, or 5 bedroom for larger groups. The prices listed reflect the prices for the 3 bedroom option.

He is famous for his architectural innovations, attention to detail, and the fit and finish of his properties.

As you ascend the drive to this villa in the sky you will feel your everyday worries falling away, when the door opens you will know you are home in the house you always dreamed only for the night.

Hilltop is a Perfect Title for this Home

  • 5 of 5

Wow – this villa was definitely on a hilltop in the Hollywood Hills but so incredibly close to everything, even the Hollywood Bowl. The views are absolutely spectacular and the home décor was unique and fantastic. We would definitely return to this home again – it was great!

Los Angeles Lights

  • 5 of 5

The night views, especially, in this villa, are spectacular. My family sat out on the deck in the evening and at night and saw Los Angeles lit up. It had all the space we needed and was decorated very artistically – not your typical boring hotel décor. We loved it!

Amazing view. Less than stellar house

  • 2 of 5

This house is was half renovated: trimming half finished in bathrooms. Upstairs deck is a mess. Bathrooms unfinished. Plumbing fixtures in backwards. Old furniture. Pots in bad shape. House was wiped down but not deep cleaned. Linens are old and icky. Parking is impossible. Amazing view.Great location including walking distance to downtown Hollywood. Endless additional fees from cleaning to VRBO. I am a frequent VRBO renter and we would never go back to this house. House itself is a D. View is and A.

Owner's Response: We were really surprised and disappointed to receive this review, since almost all of our prior reviews have been 5 stars. Mostly, we are sad that these guests did not enjoy the home. Unfortunately, they never mentioned anything during their stay, and we pride ourselves in responsiveness to our guests. The house is in no way “half renovated”, and honestly we have never received these types of comments. While we disagree with a lot of what was said, we did take the time to go through the house and make some changes and upgrades since we, as owners, do appreciate and care about feedback from our guests; we welcome constructive criticism, and want our guests to have the best experience possible. Upgrades have been made to the linens, bedding and kitchenware. We have a full time in-house housekeeper, and let each of guests know ahead of time that if they have any issues whatsoever, they are to call us immediately so that we can rectify the situation at no cost. We have no idea why these guests never contacted us during their stay. As far as the additional fees, we only charged a cleaning fee which is standard, and refunded the entire security deposit on time. The VRBO service fee is standard and we have no control over that, as well as the bed tax, which goes to the City of LA. Before their stay, we even refunded an entire night’s stay, that they had accidentally asked for. There were no hidden fees whatsoever. We provide one off street parking spot in front of the home (and do have room for another car if requested), which is critical in the Hollywood Hills where parking is always an issue. Perhaps this group had several other people over (and cars?), but never let us know that, and we could have been happy to help them with the parking situation. After 10 years in this business, we do realize that sometimes it’s just impossible to please everyone, although we would have loved to have been given the chance in this case. We truly believe that for $4-500 per night, this 3 bedroom home that sleeps 6 is an amazing alternative to a $500 hotel room for 2 people in Hollywood. The size of the home, the space, the decor, the views and the proximity to Hollywood are incomparable in our opinion.

What a great find.... we loved it! The location was great, the home is spacious and relaxing and the view is spectacular. The manager was very accommodating. Check in / check out was a breeze. Hope we are able to stay here again in the future.

Out of the Traffic

  • 5 of 5

It’s hard to find a 3 bedroom affordable rental, much less in the Hollywood Hills. We had 6 people in our family, and this place fit us all perfectly. Loved the fact that the master bedroom (which has a lounge and its own bathroom and rooftop deck) was on the floor above – it made it very private. No frills, but the management was easy to communicate with and we had a small issue, they took care of it right away. Clean, convenient to Hollywood, and such a relief to be out of the traffic of LA in a “Hilltop” retreat.

Cool, AMAZING house – so much better than staying in a hotel, and a lot more room. For the price you can’t beat it.
