HUGE HOLLYWOOD HILLS 1400 SQ FT 2+1 VIEWS, BY THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL!

Hollywood Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Spacious, fun, Centrally located!

Welcome to Hollywood! When making a request, please send an EMAIL request first before calling. We try to keep thorough electronic records so we can better serve you and avoid booking complications! we are not always using the vrbo calendar, so please inquire about availability.

Beautiful 1400 square foot 1-2 bedroom in a Spanish-Style fourplex built in 1926 with VIEWS of Hollywood Hills in the CHARMING, HISTORIC, neighborhood of HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS. we are constantly upgrading our properties.

Hollywood Living at it's Finest! Just 5 BLOCKS from the Metro and the world-famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre, yet still private and intimate. Why drive when it's a quick walk down to EVERYTHING? Want to go to the Hollywood Bowl? Four blocks. Get on the freeway? Five blocks, yet it is completely unheard and unseen. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!

Originally built for a silent film star, this building has had a long history of famous tenants, including the Oscar-Winning screenwriter of 'The Sting'!

This property has been lovingly appointed by a professional designer with high-end furnishings, lots of fine art, as well as contemporary and antique pieces. we know you will not want to leave this beautiful home. The master has a queen mattress, lovely views and direct access to the bathroom. the 2nd bedroom is separated by a half wall and drapes. The 2nd mattress is a custom mattress 1' less wide than a Queen, it appears smaller because of the California King pillows in the photo. There is an inflatable queen mattress available and the couches (though they do not pull out). This property is ideal for two, can easily fit four-six. there is laundry inside the unit, this unit has its own entrance.

PLEASE READ: There is NO assigned parking, but available street parking which is not metered or permit only. There are two spots which may be rented from our neighbors if so desired for $20/night per space, paid to them as needed, in their mailbox.

There is a 4-Night Minimum stay unless there's last minute vacancy, and there is a $100 cleaning fee :-) Please see our other listing www.vrbo.com/208878 to see our guest comments and decor sensibilities. it is a HUGE 3+3 in the same building, so if you have a larger group, you may book both to accommodate your party.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5
This place is in a great location, close to everything going on in Hollywood. Large spacious and the area is super quiet. parking was a little stressful but we were always able to find a spot.
Kevin is also the man ! , was easy to get in contact with and gave us our privacy.

substandard. NOT what I paid for.

  • 1 of 5
AFter making payments since January (on time),
for our extended stay on Memorial Weekend, we were
booted out of the big house(208878) one hour before our
arrival because Kevin gave the rental to
someone else.... because he "double booked"
and because "they" travelled farther.

Kevin "paid" for us to have a parking spot at the
end of the street. But we only got to park there
once (someone else parked there and never left),
so we were offered a parking garage down the street
around the corner. It worked, but what a hassle.

This apartment is substandard at best. Needs
a thorough professional cleaning (why I paid
for cleaning I really have no idea) from top to
bottom, except for the kitchen,... which was in good
condition and clean for the "most" part.(vents
above stove, the view of behind the fridge
from the makeshift bedroom, non-working garbage
disposal) The furniture was outdated, worn, and dirty.
(Could of been some nice retro-style if, again,.. they
were CLEAN and the bottoms wernt coming out of the chairs)
clothes that wernt ours under the bed, no TV in living
room.

BUT,... the bathroom. I wouldnt recommend ANYONE
using it. Shower was gross and had rust stains. shower
curtain had mold on the bottom. There was something wrong
with the ceiling above the toilet,... it was a huge
bubble in the ceiling as if it was gonna burst any minute.
There was no way someone could be in there with that looming
over your head.

And after all is said and done... i wouldnt of even left this
review, but Kevin never responded to any of my emails
regarding this once I left his apartment. I felt pushed
aside and that is not a way I expect to be treated as a
paying guest. Everything above is true, I have pictures,
and I encouraged the owners to contact me but never did
to this date.

Owner's Response: These guests never mentioned ANYTHING during their stay with us, and I certainly didn't force them to stay. She was meant to stay in our other larger more glamorous property and there was an unfortunate mixup where their reservation was noted wrong on the calendar. We offered her her money back OR to stay in this smaller unit, and she chose to stay in the smaller unit. We did not say the other guests had 'traveled further', though they had, but there were a lot more of them to fit in a 3 bedroom, and Ali's reservation had unfortunately always been notated incorrectly for the smaller unit (that was our fault). This smaller unit does not have parking , so in an effort to make their stay easier, we arranged parking with our neighbor (which they used). We have the apartment professionally cleaned constantly, after EVERY stay, so we were not aware of any substandard cleaning, but if something were mentioned our housekeeper would have come immediately to clean further. we always ask guests to let us know that everything is ok upon their arrival, so that if something IS amiss, we may resolve it instantly...more linens, cleaning, more toilet paper... whatever the request. There WAS an issue in the bathroom ceiling, but because they never mentioned anything, we didn't discover it until they left! If she had brought up any of this while she was actually a guest on the property, we would have addressed it. I had a difficult time taking them completely seriously when they commented on the levi's/andre the giant collaboration art posters hanging in the entry as 'devil-type art' (the street artist in LA who uses the logo OBEY). She put this 'review' up because we didn't address her request for a complete refund AFTER staying the entire visit in the property. We don't think its appropriate for her to complete her stay without a single complaint and then suddenly want all their money back. This smaller unit is not as glamorous as the larger one which she had expected, but neither is it as pricey(we instantly refunded them the difference in price), either way it is an extraordinary deal in the center of hollywood and we did our best to resolve a difficult situation which has only happened this one time.

THE BEST

  • 5 of 5
Where do I start, my family and I spent part of our summer vacation here. The house was wonderful, Kevin was an angel for accommodating us especially since it was last minute as we were driving into LA. I have never slept with the windows open but this home sleeping with the windows open was so peaceful and the view from all areas of the home were great. The kitchen is fully stocked with every dish, pan, pot, utensil that you can think of. We only had to buy toilet tissue and paper towels. Reading earlier reviews parking was great for us each night we could park in the street by the home. The location is perfect we walked from the home to Hollywood boulevard in less than 10 minutes. Six flags about 30 minutes, Universal Studios around the corner, Hollywood Bowl is right above the home. We will defiantly stay here on our future trips to LA. Thanks Kevin!

Authentic Hollywood Adventure

  • 5 of 5
My grown daughter and I were the first guests and came into town to attend the movie premier of Gangster Squad at the Chines Theater. We could walk there! The location is amazing. The place is very big, but note that the second bedroom is not private. That was fine with us. We always found street parking, but the streets are narrow, so rent a small car. You can walk right down to the Walk of Fame. Have a meal at the Roosevelt Hotel burger spot! The decor is wonderful and the owners are very thoughtful. I am a frequent VRBO renter and this place is the cat's pajamas. The neighborhood is hilly and there are stairs down to the entrance, otherwise, this is a sophisticated place for older visitors.

Pleasant Surprise!!

  • 5 of 5
All I can say is Wow! My family and I always stay in vacation rentals when we travel, so we've seen the god, the bad and, well.....you know the rest. This property suited my family and I ver well. It's in a great location. Safe and secure neighborhood. The home was well appointed, even down to the environment friendly cleaning products (smile). The owner Kevin was very easy to work with and his follow up when we contacted him about anything was quick and helpful! We will definitely be staying at this property again. This property does have a pretty long set of stairs (to the front for) that might be difficult for some elderly or people with issues walking.

Great value in this Holllywood Heights home!

  • 5 of 5
Very impressed! Came here for the weekend to stay with some friends, it was perfect. A very cozy house with a whole lot of that old-hollywood-charm! You can tell that the owner puts a lot of pride and character into the home, even his own personality shines through. There are several design styles represented in the house from modern to retro that make it appealing to many tastes. Kevin (the owner) was very accommodating considering it was a last minute booking.

The layout makes the house feel very big. We were there with exactly 6 people (3 couples.) Keep in mind that the second bedroom is separated but with curtains, however there is privacy. It was kept very clean and the surrounding neighborhood felt safe. We actually talked with neighbors and they were great!

There is anything that you would need fore a home away from home, blankets, kitchen items and gadgets, washer dryer, etc.

I would definitely stay here again, considering the price, value, and closeness to everything!
