West Hollywood House Rental Photos and Description
Finally local construction is over! Right after signing up for the first time with vrbo - major area construction began and we have waited 18 months for it to really and truly end, turning down many inquiries and closing up shop for over a year. But - it IS finally done, so we're back up and running! Hooray! Located just minutes from the very busy center of Hollywood, this luxurious, villa like home is an oasis from the hustle and bustle of city life. It was originally built in 1924 but has since been fully renovated, using 'green' features.
Ten foot ceilings in many of the rooms make for dramatic & elegant beauty. Measuring at over 3200 square feet, the house has an open & airy feel with floors that are done in either polished & stained concrete, marble, bamboo or slate. Many walls have been finished with hand applied plaster giving the lustrous look of an old Roman villa. There are numerous lovely details such as wrought ironwork, hand painted murals depicting California scenes and four fireplaces, some with mantles over 5 feet wide.
Master bath has an extra long tub with a pebble floored, extra large separate shower area for two, along with two 6 foot long counters, each having its own sink. All tubs are equipped with whirlpools. Master bedroom has adjoining room that's been turned into a closet. Each guest will receive their own brand new set of organic sheets and pillowcases upon arrival as well as fresh and never before used towels.
This property has gardens in front and back and is completely walled and fenced, providing privacy and security from the street.
We offer light housekeeping 3x a week by our housekeeper who has been with us for 15 years. ( 'light housekeeping' excludes dishwashing & laundry )
Our gated driveway provides secure, off street parking.

Life brought us to the sunny west coast from the cold east coast, many years ago and we now love it too much to ever want to leave for any length of time.
After getting to know this house for over ten years, we completely renovated it ( with 'green building features' ) and kept some of things we loved, like the general shape and feel of the house but changed the things we didn't, like cramped hallways and closets and small and narrow doorways.
We love greenery and love our year round lovely garden with its great variety of plants - something one just can't find in the cities out east or way up north!
Gigi purchased this house in 1990
Why Gigi chose West Hollywood
This home is minutes from Sunset Blvd and West Hollywood and also minutes from central Hollywood. Los Angeles is incredibly spread out - much, much more so than any other city we can think of. That can mean a lot of driving! So, although we love the beach, living there could mean it would take a long time to get anywhere else. But from this home, one can go west to Beverly Hills, Westwood, Santa Monica & the beach in Malibu, east to central Hollywood, Los Feliz, Glendale, Burbank & Pasadena and south to downtown L.A., Koreatown or Larchmont village. Likewise, one can get over the hills to Sherman Oaks & Studio City in the valley very easily and it's just a 10 minute drive to the freeways if one needs to go further. Our central location is why people in the area rarely move away !
What makes this house unique
The older properties in Los Angeles have character and wonderful Mediterranean features.
