About Kristie Holmes

This is our fourth Laurel Canyon Vacation rental, which shows how much we love the area.

Kristie Holmes purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Kristie Holmes chose Beverly Hills

We fell in love at first sight. Open house was packed, and no one stayed less than an hour. We competed with four other offers and eventually won out.

What makes this cottage unique

Views, Views, Views, and the absolute loveliness and charm...

  • 5 of 5
Great Casita in Laurel Canyon.
If you like to do urban hikes, the Hollywood Sign is a perfect day hike from here.
We stayed in the main Casita and it reminded me of a large cabin we used to go to on Basswood Lake in Canada.
Really nice large window facing south so you can see the lights of Hollywood at night from the living room and kitchen.
We were there for a week and the neighborhood was quiet - couldn't even hear the Laurel Canyon traffic.
Very good washer and dryer in an enclosure behind the main Casita.
We used Google Maps Traffic and never had any problems with traffic - we went to downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Venice, El Porto, up the coast to Rincon, up and down Ventura Blvd many times ...
Kristie, the owner, was very helpful during our stay.

Amazing Location! Unbelievable Balcony View!!

  • 5 of 5
What an enchanted place! The location was perfect as it was super close to all the action in Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, LA, etc. but remote enough to feel like you were in your own canyon hideaway. Highly recommended!!!

Gorgeous hideaway in the sky!

  • 4 of 5
This is a perfect getaway for 2! The tile work is absolutely stunning. There is a fabulous view of the hills, and it is very quiet and relaxing.

Pros: Owner was very sweet, accommodating, and easy to deal with. We got a great workout in with the stairs (there are a lot as mentioned in previous reviews. You will probably need to stop or slow down to catch your breath, but by the end of our time there, I felt conditioned! :)

Cons: The murphy beds were not meant for adults, so our crew had to sleep on the couch (we had 3 girls on this trip). Definitely something to keep in mind.

Overall - great stay!

INCORRECT # OF ROOMS / SIZE OF HOME (but it's beautiful!)

INCORRECT # OF ROOMS / SIZE OF HOME (but it's beautiful!)
  • 3 of 5
Hello, We stayed at this home April, 2014, under the impression it was a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home. Upon arriving, there is only 1 bedroom (and the bathroom attached to the master - i.e. only entrance is through the master bedroom). The photos show a master bedroom (correct), and then the murphy beds in a room (incorrect) - please note, those are "example" Murphy beds in some other home - those photos/beds are NOT from this home (the murphy beds are actually located next to the sofa in the living room). Also, upon further investigation into the posting, the home is not 1,000 sq. ft., it must be under 700.

The caretaker (also her husband, as I found out later - which made me feel a bit duped as well, because he seemed oblivious to the fact the ad was posted as a 2 bedroom), was extremely nice and gave us the guest cottage next door to the main house - that they rent out separately (another cute 1 bed/1 bath). The only reason we received the cottage for our stay was because the people who had rented it were furious they were not notified about the 6+ flights of stairs (74 or 75 stairs - we lost track every time!) to reach the front door from where you park - and they went to a hotel instead (left a pretty bad note w/us to give to owners). We didn't complain about the stairs because we laughed it off as good exercise for the weekend. But the stairs are something else that we think could have been better explained (yes, picture shows about 15-20 stairs, they just keep going - and in her note to me prior to arriva, she said it was about "about 3 flights up").

With that said, this is a very beautiful home, in a great location, is private (if nobody is in the cottage next door), it has beautiful views and the beds were SUPER comfy (the murphy beds looked uncomfy). The balcony is huge as well. This no doubtedly would be 5 stars, if the posting was honest.

PRO's: Beautiful home, Wonderful king beds (really, really comfy), nice furniture, private, huge balcony, view, cool area of LA, quiet neighborhood (RARE).

CON's: Deceptive ad, Only 1 bed/1 bath, small interior (probably under 700 sq. ft.), massive amount of steps from parking to door (74-75). Murphy beds padding looked extremely uncomfortable (and not for grown adults).

Owner's Response: It's disappointing to see comments about items addressed within an hour of arrival. Guest was promptly given an additional cottage at no charge for stay rated normally at $179/night due to a 3rd party listing issue (no one else in the 12 months we have had it had this issue- it was clearly one bedroom plus "other"/murphy beds in living room) but we took immediate responsibility without complaint. Josh is not the caretaker. Guests did not leave due to stairs (there were other personal issues), and this is not the place to discuss details of someone else's events, who one never encountered or spoke to. There are 68 stairs, and landings (if you want to count those). The Murphy beds are memory foam. They are now painted brown to match the floors. There is no point in trying to mislead anyone- we have been doing this since 2001- it's best to know up front. And in an effort to not further confuse, the additional Guest cottage- the "Mini" is a studio, one bath (not one bedroom as stated). Guest stated multiple times that they didn't read the welcome letter or listing "all the way", otherwise there would be no confusion. It has become lengthy over the years in order to add all of the items guests think need to be there. However, if it is not read, it isn't terribly helpful ;-)

Tranquility only minutes from chaos.

  • 4 of 5
This little cottage in historic Laurel Canyon is literally only a couple of miles from the chaos of the Sunset Strip, yet it is as peaceful as staying hours away in the country. With a teenage son and daughter hotel rooms with bed sharing is no longer an option. Suites, or two rooms, make traveling even more expensive (not to mention the dreaded uncomfortable pullout couch option). The murphy bunk beds, full kitchen, sectional couch and TV, in addition to a king size bed for mom and dad made this place a much better option. The deck and the view are more than icing on the cake. Our Spring Break included Warner Brother Studio, Chinese Theater, Tar pits, Santa Monica pier, Rodeo Drive, The Grove, Farmers Market, Griffith observatory, Mulholland Drive (just up the street), and yet when we drove home to Las Vegas we all felt like relaxing at our cottage in the canyon with the view and cool breeeze was one of the favorite parts of our trip. My only warning is that the 75 stairs you see in the photos are no joke. However, the view from the top is worth it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. I just want to point out that there are 68 stairs plus the landings (it's three flights). It seems once someone writes it...it sticks. And mentally it makes us all feel better if there are fewer than that! If there were no stairs, and the view, it would have a much higher nightly rate- so it's a positive. Exercise and significant savings for a wonderful Hollywood Hills View :-)
