If you’re looking for dramatic impact, this is a place for you. Very true to the pictures, this place has absolutely amazing views of LA, including the downtown skyline. The furnishings are incredibly unique, with unusual antiques, very evocative of an old Hollywood feel. Located high in the Hollywood Hills, if you are not used to driving there, it will be an eye opener. Very hilly, winding and at points narrow roads. You better pay attention for other vehicles. Not the easiest in and out but that is a part of the experience here. Elevator is really cool. Good for getting luggage up and down or for 2 or 3 people at a time. Master suite is huge. Bed was very comfortable and views are spectacular . Other bedrooms all big too with unique elevated bed areas and en suite baths that our teen girls loved. Outdoor pool and spa area is a lush retreat and pool and spa water can be warmed up as needed, although spa jets not working. Location is ideal for visiting Hollywood Blvd, Sunset Strip and Universal Studios. My advice, if you plan to cook meals at home, order groceries in advance. Getting to, in and out, and home from Whole Foods will take some time and effort if you’re not used to driving in LA. We did order in from Fatburger using Postmates one evening. Our order took longer than originally estimated and they did get our order wrong, not sure if that is typical or not. House is generally clean but is older and shows wear and tear of its age. Don’t expect pristine, Four Seasons level conditions. The drama is the draw and for that this place delivers!
This property was even more than we imagined! Owner was extremely helpful and easy to work with! The house is a gem, filled with authentic retro styles, beautiful plants, and a view that is unmatched! We will be staying here again ;-)
