These are separate houses, with no walls connecting you to someone else. Designed in the Hollywood Craftsman style of the main house, which was built in 1920 for studio employees, writers, and actors. This listing, The Bungalow is completely private and separate from the rear house. Sunset Hollywood Bungalow 1 was built in 1920 and renovated completely in 2012 to make this a dream vacation or months-long rental.
It has two big bedrooms, a huge bright and cheerful living room, and a bathroom with tub & shower. There are huge, new t.v.s, bedding for 8 people, and all kitchen amenities. The kitchen is big and has everything you need to cook in if you wish. Sunset Bungalow 1 has a completely private--patio with BBQ, a table that seats 8, an orange tree, and a private backyard. It also has a shady and private front porch and lovely front yard that is secluded from the street--a perfect place for a glass of wine on a balmy SoCal evening.

I (the host/owner) am a Hollywood native. I will help if you need suggestions, directions, etc., so that you have a wonderful Hollywood experience. The only thing I can't promise is celebrity sightings, but follow the paparazzi and the oversized sunglasses and you're sure to see them.

My father was born in L.A., so I'm a 2nd generation Angeleno--in fact, my Dad went to Hollywood High, just around the corner from here. And my mom spent her entire career at CBS television, also within a few minutes walking distance of my house.
I spent much of my career in the entertainment world...I started my career as a Broadway (New York) performer, then moved back to my hometown of L.A. to do some t.v. and film, eventually becoming a songwriter for various shows, most proudly having written a song in the first 'Shrek' movie. Several years back I made a career transition and became a psychotherapist, obviously a big change, and I love my work.
My office is nearby, in the a landmark building. For those of you who know who Howard Hughes was, my office is in his former headquarters in Hollywood. My actual office was his screening room--if you saw 'The Aviator' with Leonardo diCaprio, the screening room is where Hughes secluded himself and, well, let's just say it's a great irony that I'm a psychotherapist working amidst the spirits of that past.
The Sunset Hollywood Bungalows are my pet project. I love Hollywood and am amazed and elated that it has had such a fantastic renaissance.
There isn't a better location in Hollywood to experience the feel of what has happened here in the last several years. It's within walking distance of all the big Hollywood landmarks, theatres, and metro stops. For example, you can walk 5 minutes to the metro, take the metro one stop, and you're at Universal Studios. It's only a few minutes by car to the Museums, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood. People come here from all over the world, I live vicariously as they discover fun things to do, places to eat, clubs, etc.
The main house is a classic Hollywood Bungalow built in 1920 for studio workers. In 2008 I had the rear (smaller) Bungalow built from the ground up, so it's brand new.
Walking distance to major tourist attractions, tour buses, subways and L.A. metro, restaurants, shopping.
Very clean (see reviews for confirmation), very private.
Off-street, free parking within feet of the front door (unheard of in Los Angeles, trust me!)
