I rented this property for a number of months whilst working in Los Angeles. On the evening of my first night, my wife and I enjoyed the most beautiful pizzas (outside in the very romantic and secluded rear patio) from one of the best restaurants in the city - which is literally 5 minutes walk away. It was the beginning of a very pleasant stay.
Other amenities like groceries etc. are a short drive away, and of course Melrose Ave, brimming with shops, bars and restaurants is extremely close.
The house is fantastically presented, the decor is restrained and not garish - and all appliances we used functioned fine. It was very clean and well maintained. Naturally being there for a prolonged time, the odd issue would crop up - but when informed the owner was always quick to respond and resolve.
I'd recommend this property not only for short term visits as it well positioned to check out all that Hollywood had to offer, but also for anyone such as myself needing a restful retreat on a longer term basis.
I look forward to returning some time!
