I was recently in Los Angeles to sing at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, and this little gem in Hollywood couldn't have been more perfect! You can walk to the Hollywood and Highland Metro stop (Red Line), which takes you to several downtown stops, including the WDCH. It's probably a 15 minute walk to the metro stop from the house. But it will take you just as long to drive the short distance, and much more interesting. Yes, you walk past Hollywood High School. Cool!
The bungalow has a great size living/dining room with all the amenities of home. The front patio is perfect for evening wine or breakfast purchased at Trader Joe's or Ralph's (can walk to both). The kitchen has everything you need, and the stackable washer/dryer unit worked like a charm. The smaller bedroom has a daybed/trundle, which was comfortable to sleep on. The main bedroom had a very comfortable mattress, and was at the back of the house for optimal sleeping. The walk-in shower and the updated bathroom are also very nice. Central A/C rounds out the amenities, although we slept with the windows open. Yes, that's right. In Hollywood, sleeping with the windows open. Great sleeping weather!
A trip to Los Angeles can be a bit daunting if you're not prepared for the traffic, noise, and general big-city life. But if you enjoy unique properties, you like to walk, you hate to drive, and you like feeling like part of a city, then this is the place for you. You won't regret it.
