About Frances

I am an European Journalist who has been covering Hollywood for over 30 years. My life and privilege has been to interview and learn from every major Hollywood talent: their dreams, ups and downs, successes and failures... I have been visited by Catherine Zeta-Jones to Arnold Schwarzenegger to Will Ferrell just to name a few. The property has been used for fashion shots and as a movie location. For me Los Angeles means sunshine, blue wide-open sky, diversity of people, natural wonders, individuality, unimaginable cuisine and 'The sky's the limit' attitude. What I love about my property is the location: far away and yet so close to the hustle and bustle of Hollywood... from here you can quickly be anywhere the action is in minutes...or just enjoying a serene day on top of the world.

Frances purchased this house in 1975

Why Frances chose Hollywood

As soon as I came to Los Angeles my dream was to live on Mulholland Drive, which is for me as historic as a cathedral would be in a town in Europe. MULHOLLAND DRIVE is a painting by David Hockney. KING OF THE MOUNTAIN was a fictional movie with Dennis Hopper, Harry Hamlin and Dan Haggerty loosely based on actual Mulholland Drive racers. The films MULHOLLAND DRIVE and MULHOLLAND FALLS were named after the road. Video games GRAND THEFT AUTO and MIDNIGHT CLUB features Mulholland Drive. R.E.M.'s song ELECTROLITE was inspired by Mulholland Drive and is mentioned. TOM PETTY refers to 'glide down over Mulholland' in the hit song 'FREE FALLIN'. In LOVE AND BASKETBALL Mulholland Drive is referred to during the scene in which Q and Monica meet up outside of her bedroom after the Spring Dance. It marks the street as a dead end where couples go for privacy.

Terrific, perfect, great stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin? Our hostess was thoughtful and careful, very organized with her instructions and welcoming throughout the entire process.

Once we arrived, we found the place to be comfortable, clean, roomy and well-decorated, inside and out. The location was convenient but extremely peaceful and quiet around it, basically a perfect balance. I would seek here first the next time I go to LA. I cannot say enough great things about the place and the hostess. Highly recommended.

Second time was a charm!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from our second stay at this property. Once again, we were delighted with the experience and the value. You essentially have your own house in the Hollywood Hills because the property is detached from the owner's residence. Perched on a ridge between Runyon Canyon and the Hollywood sign, the location can't be beat. You can do some light hiking on the nearby trails, or have drinks in the garden overlooking the canyon. There is even an enclosed outdoor room where we had a dinner with friends under the stars. It's in an exclusive neighborhood just a five minute drive to everything that's happening on Sunset Blvd. We find the full kitchen helps us save a bundle on breakfast and the occasional dinner. It is meticulously maintained. The owner takes justifiable pride in the property. It sleeps four very comfortably. Amazing.

Don't miss this one!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, bright, colorful and relaxing! Believe the pictures! Such a good value - you'd spend more at a hotel than in this beautiful setting. Frances, the owner lives on the property and was SO welcoming and helpful. She had the right balance of giving you your privacy and providing info. I just got home and I miss it already!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The guest house is in a very safe, quiet area, but is just 1.5 miles up the hill from the heart of Hollywood. Perfect for sight-seeing with a car, and even walking to Runyon Canyon Park. There's a great view of the Hollywood sign from the driveway! We appreciated the small and functional kitchen and pleasant living room in addition to the two separate bedrooms. It's almost like a cozy beach house in the middle of a high-end neighborhood. Frances is a lovely person and great to work with. We would definitely recommend this rental to others.

Fit our needs perfectly

  • 5 of 5

My friend & I opted to rent this home rather than two hotel rooms, and it served our needs well. The two bedrooms located on opposite ends of the home gave us our privacy when we needed it, and I loved the small, private garden area right outside my bedroom. The house was located in a very safe neighborhood, allowing me to take walks in the morning for some beautiful sunrise shots of LA. You will need a car to get around, but it was conveniently located close to the Hollywood Bowl, Griffith Park, and other attractions. The room was clean and bright, and the shower was huge! Also, my mattress and pillows in the smaller bedroom were probably the most comfortable ones I had ever slept on in either a rental home or a hotel. That was much appreciated. DVD collection was enormous, although we did not really have time to view any of them.

I appreciated the quick replies I always received from Frances whenever I had a question, also, and how promptly my security deposit was refunded. One slight caution - the parking space works best with a smaller car. Lovely home, photos accurately depict it. Would recommend this for two singles needing two beds, or two couples. And would definitely stay there again if the need arises. Thank you, Frances.

Fantastic place to stay in LA!!

  • 5 of 5

The positive reviews are all 100% true. This apartment has everything you need for a very comfortable stay and the location is wonderful. We had breakfast at home everyday and then set off to see all that LA has to offer. We did laundry, watched TV and relaxed outside on the terrace. Frances was incredibly gracious and accessible at all times. The apartment itself was very comfortable for my family (four adults and a small child) and it was a lot of fun to stay up in the canyon. The views are beautiful and the apartment offers a quiet retreat from the rest of busy LA. I can't recommend it more highly!!!
