HOLLYWOOD URBAN VILLA

Hollywood House Rental Photos and Description

Hidden from the street view, this walled and secured urban villa features a truly unique indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Upon entering the home, the city disappears and the feeling of relaxation prevails. You become present to the water features, gardens and pools. The home is designed with open and flowing interior space, integrated to the outdoor areas through glass and retracting doors, thus perfectly incorporating the Southern California indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

Sleek yet elegantly warm and cozy, this contemporary design features a large entrance courtyard, a spacious living and dining area with hardwood floors. The kitchen-den opens to the pool and patio highlighted by an outdoor living room and a separate guesthouse -- which is the third bedroom and bath with kitchenette. Throughout, the stylish furnishings are accented by fine art, exotic planting and designer lighting and color scheme. Flat screen televisions are located in the kitchen-den and each of the bedrooms.

Both the living room and the rear outdoor living room have working fireplaces and comfortable furnishings to relax on your lazy vacation days. The open floor plan leads from the entrance courtyard -- which is an outdoor living room -- though a wall of glass doors to the living room and the raised dining area. The flow continues to the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. It features an island which includes a bar separating the kitchen from the relaxed den which opens through french doors to the outdoor living room and pool. Lush greenery and artworks define the huge outdoor room. On one side is an outdoor covered seating area which is an ideal setting for partying and alfresco dining. Another area, raised slightly above the pool, provides chaises to relax by the pool. A side patio provides a barbecue and fresh herbs to clip for your gourmet dining.

Bedrooms in the main house include comfortable seating areas, carpeted floors and large closets. The master bedroom opens to the pool and rear outdoor living room through French doors and it includes an en suite bathroom with a sunken, spa tub, shower and steam. A washer and dryer are concealed and located on the bedroom hallway.

Central air provides added comfort, and the pool and spa can be heated. Uncovered parking is provided for two cars in tandem. Street parking is available for guests.The property is gated for added privacy and security.

About Robert McCray

I have a great interest in interior design and architecture. Having traveled a great deal, I have come to appreciate certain design styles and spacial configuration in homes, especially with the courtyard homes of colonial Mexico. When I moved to Southern California, the perfect climate became an additional motivator to explore outdoor living design.

Robert McCray purchased this house in 1999

Why Robert McCray chose Hollywood

This particular house, I simply call Genesee. It was the fourth property which I had purchased and renovated in the area and, due to circumstance, became the property where I chose to live. Originally a duplex, Genesee was completely renovated and converted to a single family home. The swimming pool and outdoor living features were added within the last 4 years, but have become the defining elements for the lifestyle associated with Genesee.

What makes this house unique

When at Genesee, you will naturally feel drawn to the water of the swimming pool. The salt waters of the pool are always warm due to the solar heating system. The gardens surrounding the pool are tropical and full of exotic surpasses, including pleasurable fragrances. An outdoor fireplace adjacent to the swimming pool provides the opportunity to further enhance the exotic feel of the backyard to that of a near spiritual experience.

The Perfect Los Angeles Escape

  • 5 of 5
Having read through the reviews and information prior to my arrival, I had expected this house to be comfortable, and pleasant. Upon entering the front gate, I knew I had arrived at a special, unique estate. Every detail of the home is meticulously executed so that those staying are more than comfortable - they are pampered. The house is appointed with all the latest technological tools that modern travelers expect. Yet, all the information needed to operate each system is easily available and simple to understand. Should there be any questions about the property, the property assistant is always a quick phone call away.

From the stocked kitchen and wine fridge, to the serene patios and pool, this home is by far one of the most beautiful I have had the pleasure to vacation. If you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of L.A. and rejuvenate - this home is the perfect fit.

We spent the Christmas here and were very satisfied with everything. The description at the web site is accurate and our experience was similar as stated in many other acclaiming guests reviews.

Before arriving I was worried, are we spending too much on this rental. Afterwards I know we didn't. Good value for money.

Perfect Holiday Rental!!!

  • 5 of 5
I only have positive feedback to give! We rented the house for the Christmas holidays, since my family was visiting from abroad. Couldn't have been happier with our choice! The house was clean, very nicely furnished, and had a modern but cozy ambiance to it. The owner had prepared it very nicely for us, and made sure our arrival at the house was welcoming and smooth. He, as well as his assistant were both very helpful, and made sure all our questions were answered. The property is perfect for families or couples.. The backyard is amazing, and the whole place is great for entertaining. We will definitely rent this place again! Thank You!

Perfect House, Perfect Location!!!

  • 5 of 5
To begin with, the owner and his assistant could not have been nicer or more helpful. We had asked about where we might find beach equipment rentals only to find on ou r arrival that Victoria had purchased beach towels and a cooler for us! Furthermore, we arrived to find a gift basket of fruit cheese and crackers along with quality wine and beer we were encouraged to feel free to enjoy. The location is great for touristy Los Angeles things, Beverly Hills, LA, studios, beaches, etc. Also, we spent a lot of time enjoying the sunny and private beautiful pool area, fires at night in th cool evenings and enjoyed meals outside on the private patio. Finally, the entire property is lushly landscaped and the property is in a quaint a d safe area of Hollywood.
