About Sharlotte Blake

I am originally from the East Coast via Philadelphia & New York and settled in Los Angeles in 1999. I met my husband, originally from LA, in Los Angeles and we have a young son. I have worked in Entertainment for much of my adult life in both Music and Film. I also love design and real estate and owning Vacation Rentals has been a wonderful experience for me.

Sharlotte Blake purchased this house in 2004

Why Sharlotte Blake chose Hollywood

We love the neighborhood of Hancock Park and always wanted to live there. We bought the home in 2004 and have been lovingly restoring it to it's 1927 grandeur ever since. Once we had a child of our own, we realized how much nicer it is to have a 'house' when we travel so we decided to renovate our guest house so we could share it with people like yourselves for your vacation or business stays in our beautiful city.

What makes this house unique

You will love the contemporary feel of our guest house. You will feel like you are staying in the modern luxury of a high end hotel like the W or the Mondrian but without the cost, or the noise. The back yard you walk through to get to your house gives you a feeling of being away in a beautiful setting and you will forget you are actually in the heart of the city. It's the best of all worlds, quiet and restful but near all the attractions LA has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely stay at your place and thoroughly enjoyed our time in LA. The location was just perfect for our needs and the accommodation was beautiful and very very comfortable. We will definitely look you up again next time we are in LA.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Sharlotte the host/owner was great, the unit was very clean and spacious. It was everything we needed and more! The location could not have been better. It was situated a wonderful, safe neighborhood, walking distance to great shopping and restaurants on Larchmont. We definitely hope to be back!

We spent 5 days in Hollywood and enjoyed our stay in this guest house ideally located. Furniture and all in the house is new, clean and well kept. Sharlotte was available for any enquiry and allways here to help before and during our stay. I would definitely recommend this property.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with 3 children from France. All I can say about this property is : fantastic ! This guest house is great, clean with high standard equipment. The neighborhood is awesome and safe, ideally located to reach all the places we wanted to visit (Hollywood, Venice and Santa Monica beaches, Universal Studios, Beverly Hills, The Groves, Citaled Outlet, etc... We met Sharlotte, the owner, at the check in and she gave us some very good and useful advices about some restaurants and places to visit. We definitely recommend this guest house.

very clean, perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location and was spotless. Every amenity was available. We loved the location in a neighborhood but literally in the middle of LA. Very close to the trendy Melrose Avenue, which my kids loved. Sharlotte, the owner, was awesome. Anything we needed, she was a phone call away.

You should know that the second floor loft is sloped. My older teenager is 5'10" and it was hard to maneuver for her. My younger preteen loved the space and the coziness of the sloped loft sleeping area. This would not be a good place if you had big teenage boys or if you were two couples travelling. Further, it is in the middle of a neighborhood, so if you party late into the night or want to be rowdy on vacation, I wouldn't recommend this location. For us, who love the peace and quiet after a day of touring LA, it was perfect.

Excellent, modern LA home with great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the rental home for our family of 4, especially appreciating the very modern appliances (washer and dryer and fridge with top working filtered water). Sharlotte brought us fresh fruit from their garden daily, which was a real treat! The air conditioning was also brand new and kept us comfortable. The upstairs kids' room is more ideal for younger children, although my very tall teenager said she did not mind at all. Great location. All in all, we would book this again for sure, and looking at the photo makes me wish I were there now!

Location! You can enjoy all that LA and Hollywood have to offer minutes away and come 'home' to the quiet and exclusive Hancock Park neighborhood to refresh and get a good nights sleep before another event filled day!

Hancock Park is one of the oldest and most exclusive neighborhoods of Los Angeles. We are centrally located between the San Fernando Valley and the Beach. Only 6 miles from the Film Studios in Burbank (Warner Brothers & Universal) and 10 miles to the beach and the airport in the other direction. We are right around the corner from Paramount Studios as well as CBS Studios. As you drive around our area you will be reminded of your location as the Holllywood sign in the hills sits above you to the North.

Located just South of the heart of Hollywood, Hancock Park boasts large homes and estates established in the 1920's & 1930's. Formerly home to such luminaries as Walt Disney, the Warner Brothers, Nat King Cole, Francis Ford Coppola and William Randolph Hearst. Many celebrities and luminaries in the film & TV industry currently reside in Hancock Park in it's stately mansions on quiet tree lined streets. Hancock Park is also home to many Foreign consulates. Occasionally our quiet neighborhood does get a bit of excitement when President Obama comes to visit the homes of TV Producer John Wells, Film Producer & Will Smith's partner, James Lassiter, or the home of Melanie Griffith & Antonio Banderas. Prince William & his wife Kate were also hosted recently at the UK Consulate General's home in the neighborhood. The beautiful homes and quiet streets of our neighborhood provide a fantastic setting for a romantic evening walk or your daily morning jog.

Bordering Hancock Park on the East and a short walk from our home is the quaint Larchmont Village. A 'local' spot for a fabulous Sunday Farmer's market, many restaurants and great coffee shops & ice cream shops as well as some wonderful local specialty shops.

You are only 2 miles from the Heart of Hollywood. See the sights on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, stop by Grauman's Chinese Theatre to see the handprints of the star's, The Wax Museum and Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum are always great fun as well.

For shopping and the occasional celebrity spotting check out The Grove at Farmers Market, only 1.5 miles away. Next to the Grove is Pan Pacific Park where you can run, relax, and picnic. There are several playgrounds for the kids, and many fields for soccer, baseball & more. The Original Farmer's Market, established in 1934 is nearby at 3rd & Fairfax. It has both fresh produce every day as well as great restaurants of all types, from Parisian crepes to Mexican tacos, to Indonesian fare, Brazilian dishes and more. You can also buy fresh fish, meat and produce to bring home and cook on your own grill! The whole family can find something they like with the variety at this outdoor market.

A morning hike at nearby Runyan Canyon is a must for the vacationer as is a scenic drive on Mullholland Drive. Lookout points along the drive will give you amazing views you've only seen in the movies of both Los Angeles and 'the Valley'. Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Six Flags at Magic Mountain are all within a 45 minute drive. Universal Studios City Walk & Theme Park are a mere 15 minutes away. You can even take the subway there from Hollywood!

For fine dining nearby Mario Battali's Osteria Mozza is within walking distance as are other great restaurants for French, Italian and Asian fare. If you are interested in sporting events, theater, concerts or other live music events, we are located within 5-15 minutes from the Staples Center & Nokia theatre, Dodger's stadium, the world famous Sunset Strip, the Kodak Theater (home to the Oscar's), the Pantages Theatre, the Wiltern, the El Rey, the Hollywood Palladium and many many more. Due to our location at the bottom of the hill, when outside in the evening you can often hear the music wafting down the hill from the Hollywood Bowl or glimpse fireworks displays on special occasions from The Grove. The Wilshire Country Club's 4th of July fireworks display is always a treat to watch from the front yard.

We are equidistant from the Bob Hope airport in Burbank and LAX International airport. We are about 10 miles from horseback riding at Griffith Park and 10 miles to theBeaches in the other direction.

Explore the 'non-Hollywood' part of LA too nearby and treat yourself to the rich traditions and cuisines in nearby Thai town, Korea Town, China Town & Little Tokyo.

Los Angeles also boasts a thriving art and cultural community and we are nearby the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art as well as the Geffen at MOCA, the Disney Center, The LA Museum of Natural History, the LA Tar Pits & Paige Museum and the Los Angeles Zoo.

You can't beat our location to explore all LA has to offer without spending your day in the car. We are in the center of it all!
