I am a European Journalist who has been covering Hollywood for over 30 years. I fell in love with LA and have made it my glorious home. My life and privilege has been to interview and learn from every major Hollywood talent: their dreams, ups and downs, successes and failures...the reality of Hollywood. I have been visited by Catherine Zeta-Jones to Arnold Schwarzenegger to Kurt Russell just to name a few. My property has been used for fashion shoots and as movie locations. To me Los Angeles means sunshine, blue wide-open sky, diversity of people, natural wonders, individuality, unimaginable cuisine and 'sky's the limit' attitude. What I love about my property is the location; 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

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.

BE A LOCAL IN THE HOLLYWOOD HILLS!

  • 5 of 5
We felt like locals staying at this wonderful property! It was exactly as described and just like the photos. The property was clean and well maintained. The area was very peaceful and quiet yet is just a very short drive (couple minutes) to Hollywood Blvd. and other attractions. The short journey up and down the hill was an adventure of its own!
The ambiance of the house itself is very light and flowing, European meets Hollywood Chic with a Bohemian flair. Frances the owner has really put a lot of thought into the design and comfort of her guests. If you love movies then you will be thoroughly pleased with her extensive movie library. As a member of the Hollywood Foreign Press, she has all of the latest and greatest! There are also plenty of cool Hollywood themed books and knick-knacks. She has left misc. supplies throughout the house for your convenience, including snacks and goodies! The courtyard and gardens were very lush and beautiful as well as functional. And yes, you can see the Hollywood sign clearly from the driveway! Runyon Canyon is just a short walk from the house. The 360 views of Los Angeles, Hills and Hollywood were just breathtaking! We drove into Beverly Hills and ate at Sur, drove to Malibu and checked out the Sunday Farmer's Market, went to Venice Beach, hired a limo to take us into Downtown Los Angeles where we ate at Wolfgang's WP24. The house is in a good central location, a great shooting off point for any direction you are heading.
Although Frances gives you your privacy, we did get to meet her briefly one morning and were thrilled to spend a little bit of time talking to her. She was very informative, friendly and extremely gracious! We felt like family! We would definitely return and recommend this property to others. In addition, it was very affordable. You really can't beat it!
Many thanks from the Weingarts!

A GEM OF A HOLIDAY HOME RETREAT.

  • 5 of 5
I really do not know what else I can really add that hasn't already been said.
We are a couple who stayed in this lovely guest house nestled off of Mulholland Drive. We found the property to be very clean, spacious and welcoming that also provided a quiet retreat to busy days in LA. The property was equipped with everything you could possibly need but Frances was always on hand to help with any questions we had, while also ensuring we always had our privacy. A short walk to runyon canyon was a lovely added bonus and we spent many days in our 2 week stay, going for morning or evening hikes where great views of the city can also be found. A car is a must as there is nothing else in walking distance but there are cabs which are easy to organise for pick up and/or drop off for the times when you fancy a day off from behind the wheel. Of course the DVD and book collection needs a mention and it was a shame we didn't have time to enjoy them more. If you are looking to party hard then this is not for you as it is in a quiet residential area. If like us you wanted to enjoy the city with the odd night out in Hollywood, then this is the perfect place for you. Thoroughly enjoyed our time in Frances' guest house and would certainly recommend to anyone interested.

PEACE & QUIET OFF MULHOLLAND DRIVE

Peace & Quiet off Mulholland Drive
  • 5 of 5
We've been visiting Hollywood every year since 2006 and this is one of the better places we've stayed. The location is central to everything we wanted to do but it's removed enough that you can "get away from it all" when you want to. My wife and I kept remarking "It's so quiet up here!". Frances is an excellent host, unobtrusive but there when you need her. We loved having access to a parking space, the washer and dryer and the all the DVDs on location. We're looking forward to our next visit.

PROPERTY IS AS LISTED...TASTEFUL AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
This guest house was very comfortable for two adults. Tastefully decorated with a huge film library, books and dvd's.. It was convenient for traveling around LA yet very quite and private up in the Hollywood Hills. Walking distance to Runyon Canyon was a big plus. Frances was always available via email and greeted us at arrival. I would definitely stay again.

A GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN HOLLYWOOD

  • 5 of 5
My mother and I stayed for 12 days. It was perfect for us. Very well equipped for cooking, laundry, etc. the views are great and the cottage has a lovely bright feel. I enjoyed being able to access the Runyon Canyon park for a daily walk or jog. Frances is very hospitable, but totally respects your privacy.
