Overview

Hollywood Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

This is the perfect place to enjoy all that Hollywood has to offer. Walking distance to Hollywood and Highland, Mann Chinese Theater, Hollywood Walk of Fame, The Cinerama Dome, Amoeba Music, tons of restaurants, bars and nightclubs - there is literally no chance you will ever be bored in this neighborhood.

The apartment is gigantic - over 850 square feet. There is a ton of room for everything with two closets, shelves and drawers for all your stuff. There are lots of areas to relax and enjoy. First of all the private balcony gives you a birds eye view of the neighborhood and the lush garden below.

The master bedroom features a super comfortable queen size bed, DirecTV, DVD player, iPOD dock and original artwork. Moving further in there is a guest room with a desk and a futon couch that folds out into a queen size bed. That room also features original artwork and double doors that open out onto the private balcony. I'd count the guest room and the porch as the 'living area' - they work best together with the doors open.

The kitchen has a large breakfast nook and vintage stove. Pots, pans, silverware, a toaster, microwave, coffee pot, kettle, everything you need to prepare basic meals if you enjoy cooking - although there are numerous restaurants to suit every budget within walking distance and many of them deliver as well.

It's clean, it's comfortable, it's safe, it's fun, and it's in a great location. There is also a NEW SECOND APARTMENT downstairs. Please click the ALL MY RENTAL LISTINGS LINK (under rate info) for the description and profile. You may be able to rent both - nice for groups traveling together!

About Alexander McDonald

I work in entertainment cutting commercials for television shows and movies.

Alexander McDonald purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Alexander McDonald chose Hollywood

The neighborhood is the big draw. It's walking distance to so many great places and our corner is very friendly and the neighbors are great.

The history of the property is interesting as well. I am only the third owner since 1915 when the main house was built. It was one of the first in the neighborhood. A Greek family bought it in the 70s and the father was the one who established the community garden across the street. Apparently he used to go across the street and gather ingredients while he was cooking. Neighbors come by and tell stories about him - I guess he was a bit of a character.

When I was looking at it it just felt like the kind of place I'd want my son to grow up and invite my friends and family to come over and enjoy.

What makes this apartment unique

Fantastic neighborhood, central location to visit LA, excellent value, walk to restaurants and all that Hollywood has to offer

Good with a few drawbacks...

  • 3 of 5
Location is good, 15 min walk to Metro station on Hollywood Blvde. Small corner store a few min walk away is good. Owner helpful with guests when we stayed there. Eateries within 10 min walk is good. Noise on balcony from the traffic is annoying so one doesn't bother sitting outside. The outdoor setting in yard is poor and unkept. Unit it a good size, bed comfy yet looks like a double bed on a queen base, weird, air con good. Had trouble getting refundable booking fee on departure from owner once we came home back to Australia, took 9 days and a few emails, it really isn't up to guest to pursue, contract stated immediate refund. If staying make sure you get your booking fee immediately refunded, it's a pain to pursue...no excuse cuts it...

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying and I'm glad you had a good trip! Yes the location is really good, and I'm glad you were able to enjoy being so close to all that Hollywood has to offer. I love the neighborhood and have lived here for many years. It's exciting, it's fun, there is some traffic in LA - but for me it's part of the experience. The balcony is literally my favorite place on the property and when nobody is staying in the unit I often go up there and relax. It's got a great view and personally, I love it.

As I mentioned the refund sometimes takes a few days to fully process. Thanks for being patient. For future guests: if you are having financial difficulties or for whatever reason cannot wait for the banks and credit card companies to transfer funds (especially overseas) please let me know ahead of time and we can figure something out.

Lastly, one of the reasons I can offer the vacation rental at such an unbeatable price is because I do some of the work myself. I'm not a professional gardener but I'm proud of the yard. I do however hire a professional cleaning crew to try and make sure the interiors are spotless.

Hollywood Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect space for a couple on the go! We were in town for both work and sightseeing, and this apt. suited our needs to a T. It's a great layout, with lots of thought put into the features. (If you do find something missing, Alex will make sure your needs are met. When we mentioned a coffee grinder, one was on our doorstep the next day!) Conveniently located to Hollywood attractions and great restaurants. Loved sitting on the outdoor balcony at the end of the evening. The only drawback was that it's on a busy street and traffic noise might bother some - but it's a wonderful place and still felt private.

Cute place, good location

  • of 5
My friend and I recently had a girls' weekend and stayed here. The place is clean and in a good location. You can easily walk to Hollywood Blvd and the metro station. The neighborhood is busy but safe enough and there is plenty to do, eat, and see nearby. It is absolutely worth the reasonable price. I would definitely stay there again.

Real Hollywood

The apt is large, well equipped, and the bed is super comfortable. (Lots of nice pillows!) Walking distance to Hollywood Blvd. Lovely neighborhood to walk through. Close to restaurants and entertainment venues. Take the Metro to Union Station and Downtown... The Art Deco architecture is outstanding. We look forward to visiting LA and Fountain Avenue again.

Hollywooooood!

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for a cozy home away from home close to everything, this really is the place! We were very surprised at how we were just a walk away from all of the necessities and many of the sites. The corner store is a block away with a fresh fruit stand outside every other day. Not to mention Diners, Drive Ins and Dives acclaimed Fat Sals Deli with the BEST sandwiches two blocks down. I could go on...

The apartment is quiet, comfortable and very well kept and clean. We met Alex the first day we were there, he checked in via email a few days later and sent a "don't clean up after yourselves" email. I'm one of those people that cleans the hotel room for housekeeping, so it was nice to know that we didn't have to rush around.

Alex, thank you for everything! We're looking forward to our next stay!
