Overview

Hollywood House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Very comfortable for up to 6 adults & 2 or 3 children

Beautifully restored 1925 Mediterranean home in the hills above Hollywood. Grand two story entry hall with curved staircase and gallery. Two level living room with, a fireplace, arched ceiling, picture window to the front courtyard and French doors to a terrace at the rear. The dining room has a huge silver leafed cornice molding and a table that expands to seat 14 or more.

The large kitchen has a subzero refrigerator, classic six burner O' Keefe and Merritt stove and wine cooler and separate lounge area with hanging flat screen TV. Three bedrooms upstairs each with king size bed, en suite bathroom and flat screen TV.

Glamorous Hollywood Vacation Home : Secluded on a quiet street, walking distance to the Hollywood Bowl and twenty minutes to everywhere else, this jewel of a home will take you back to the time when movies where still made without sound. While providing plenty of recent technology, this glamorous Mediterranean style residence with touches of Art Deco boasts over 3200 sq ft (300 sq meters) of lovingly restored, beautifully appointed interiors with an optional additional 1100 square feet (100 sq meter) guest unit available.

Entering the two story entry hall reveals a sweeping grand staircase, a magnificent period Art Deco chandelier and the library gallery above. One can easily imagine Norma Desmond descending-- ready for her close up. The drama continues as one steps down from the spacious entry into an inviting living room with a 12 foot arched ceiling, fireplace and huge arched window offering views of the intimate entry court. At the far end of this room, there are two steps up to a cozy TV seating which was originally designed for the grand piano that entertained guests before elegant dinners.

The dining room (embellished with bold silver leafed crown moldings and a magnificent Deco -inspired chandelier) easily accommodates 14 guests at the empire-style dining table. Beyond the dining room is the heart of the house, an updated kitchen that amazingly still fits the early 1920’s but quietly features a sub zero refrigerator, wine cooler, center island, two sinks, dishwasher, microwave and fully restored antique six burner duel oven O’keefe and Merrit range. Also included here is a sitting area with sofa, side chair, a flat screen television and bar stools. On the second floor are three bedrooms, each with king size beds, en suite bathrooms and flat screen televisions.

Besides the nod to history, dual zone heating and air conditioning, DirecTV satellite TV on five screens and a very fast WiFi connection makes this amazing vacation residence a must for your next Los Angeles visit. The only thing missing is you!

amazing hollywood hills property

  • 5 of 5

Oh my God! The PiCs looked amazing on the site and when we entered I could not believe my eyes ! Even better than the pictures. The villa is perfect, carefully manufactured and very clean. The location is truely strategic: the hottest spot to be and central as 5 min to all. The road is very quiet . I hosted a few dinners so the kitchen and the common areas were important to use. The thing everyone said while walking in was : your villa is amazing : warm, cosy, homy and with all required tech.

if you are thinking if a villa there feel safe and book this. You will be 1000% satisfied and happy!

Thank you Doug! I WILL BE BACK SOON!

Fantastic Holidays

  • 5 of 5

After looking at many possibilities we selected Doug's home for the Christmas season and it definitely did not disappoint!. His home is lovely, well appointed, comfortable, and just the perfect place to spend time with friends and family. Doug supplies many household items that were greatly appreciated. He is a wonderful host. I would have zero hesitation in recommending this home for rental and certainly hope to return myself. Oh yes, the beds are like sleeping in little clouds, we all awoke every morning refreshed. A Christmas to remember!

Perfect Hollywood Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is immaculate. The rooms are enormous. 90% of the home is practically original. Beds were super comfortable. All the amenities you could possibly need were provided. The owner was available anytime we required his help. If the opportunity arises for me to book a house in Los Feliz again, this will absolutely be the one.

Brilliant stay in LA

  • 5 of 5

As a band we travel quite a bit and have grown fed up of hotels. We stay in homes away from home as much as possible and this was by far our best to date. Douglas was extremely helpful but never in our face. The street feels like a quiet suburb but is literally minutes from the action. Everything worked and was immaculate. The house was cozy all round and it became our haven after long studio hours. Excellent stay. You will love it!

Old Hollywood Charmer!

  • 5 of 5

We lived here for 2 months during a home renovation and loved every minute of our stay. Although located a mere 5 minutes from our property, the "Old Hollywood" charm made us feel a world away. The house is lovely, unique and filled with beautiful, comfortable furnishings. The property is immaculate, the owner wonderfully accomodating and it was hard to leave once our own home was finished!

Simply the best!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I cannot wait to return to this lovely property. The location is terrific. Close to everything. The home is beautiful inside and out. As elegant as this property is, it is also comfortable. I must rave about the bedrooms. The beds and bedding were more comfortable than any luxury hotel that I have stayed in. My three children 9 and under fell asleep easily each night. The neighborhood is quiet, even though it is located close to the Hollywood Bowl. There are so many restaurtants, shops, and tourist sites near by. Or, you can just relax on the beautiful terrrace. The kitchen is well stocked including spices. The bathrooms were stocked with personal care items and every need was anticipated. This is a home that you do not want to miss. The kids said this was the best vacation and best home they have ever stayed in and I have to agree. Thank you Doug for renting this fantastic property to us.
