I have been in real estate for over 20 years. It has been my passion to transform properties into beautiful designs. I have spent the last year redesigning this home. It has been a labor of love and I believe that you will enjoy this property as much as I have enjoyed making it what it is today.

Michael Draz purchased this villa in 2012

The property is located right above the Sunset Strip, with panoramic mountain, city views and ocean beyond.

We are located 3 minutes away from everything the Sunset Strip has to offer, including glamorous restaurants, famous hotels, movie star homes, Beverly Hills. We are also less than 20 minutes from Santa Monica beach.

Amazing location - very quiet and private yet minutes from the Sunset Strip.

Amazing floor plan with lots of windows overlooking breathtaking views from every floor.

Two kitchens, huge backyard with 8 person Jacuzzi spa.

Best Place to Stay in an Incredible Hollywood Hills Location!!!

  • 5 of 5
I came to Los Angeles from New York to celebrate 4th of July with my friends . After personally looking at half a dozen houses in this area I chose this house because of its amazing location, spacious house and gorgeous view!. The house is close to amazing restaurants and bars all around the city like Chateau Marmont, Katana and others. We were really happy staying here and wished we had had another week in the city! I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing weekend. You won't be disappointed.
I will definitely be revisiting soon!!!
Thanks a lot Michael !!!

If you find a better place in LA, I'll eat my hat!

When I first saw the photos of this place, the amenities, the location, and the price, I was pretty sure something was up. I looked through the listing a few times and it all checked out. I did read that 1-star review, however I thought it was exaggerated and the owner's response was reasonable.

As such, I booked with Michael and after a few phone calls and mailing out a check, had the place booked.

I arrived on Friday afternoon and my jaw dropped. The place is incredible. Hands down the best value-to-quality venue I've ever stayed at and I've been to more than a few. The photos are good, but they just don't do it justice.

The furnishings are modern, stylistic and practical. Plentiful couches to relax on, a huge TV to enjoy, a pool table, shuffleboard (of all things!), balconies all around, jacuzzi and sauna upstairs, another jacuzzi outside among the trees, resilient WIFI, four bathrooms with plenty of hot water, two kitchens each with their own refrigerator, and a new wooden dining table which easily seats 8 people. Did I mention the location and the view?

Michael was fastidious, ensuring all our needs were met, and was prompt when I asked extra questions over text. He worked with us wherever possible, accommodating our later departure on checkout as there were no guests immediately following our stay.

There are three minor details to be aware of, but even together they are not concerning:

1. The driveway wasn't working and we had to park on the street. This didn't bother us, but guests should be aware of it, especially those with nice cars who want them to be under cover.

2. No smoking is allowed on the balconies, only behind the house. Again, not a big problem and totally understandable (the smoke smell would otherwise migrate into the house), but it requires constant vigilance as smokers often get lazy and want to enjoy the view while they puff away.

3. I'm in technology, and I much prefer online bookings over mailing checks. Again, not a strong concern, but I'm sure hoping Michael upgrades the payment options by the time we return.


Quite frankly, if you want location, luxury, view, style, comfort and fun, then don't bother looking anywhere else, you just won't find it.

Great property and beautiful experience

  • 5 of 5
My familiy came from Montreal and this was a perfect place for our get-together! The house was clean, spacious and in great shape. The view was terrific, complete with a terrace. The two kitchens were particularly convenient since we had a large party. The whole stay was comfortable and fun, and the pool table, shuffle board and Jacuzzi were a definite plus. The neighborhood was serene, no loud noises or distractions, and the management was very helpful. It was surprisingly affordable too. It’s right in the heart of Hollywood Hills - Sunset was five minutes away, and there was tons of great stuff within walking distance. It’s well worth another trip back. Thank you for a wonderful time in this house!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
My family and I came from France. We all found the property delightful. The house had been recently remodeled and it was perfectly clean and very well appointed. There are two kitchens, one on each floor, which was great for our large group. The views from the terraces are outstanding (they reminded me of the South of France), yet the house was totally private. Sunset Plaza and all the major entertainment locations were just minutes away, which we found extremely convenient. The property manager was very helpful. We had the best time. I would definitely recommend staying there.

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5
I just stayed at the property for a week with family from Europe, and found it exactly as I expected. The house was super clean, private, and the views are fantastic. The two kitchens were so convenient for large groups of people such as ours. We particularly enjoyed the pool table and shuffle board. The neighborhood was extremely quiet and serene, yet it's just minutes away from the Sunset Strip. The Jacuzzi in the master bedroom, as well as the Jacuzzi in the back yard were very enjoyable. Combined with the fire pit it created a special atmosphere for everyone. The property manager was responsive and accommodating. We got our security refund within three days of leaving. I would definitely stay at this property again.

A total rip off.....

  • 1 of 5
Every August, our family has been meeting in LA for several years now to attend a music festival produced by one of my sons.  We needed a place with enough bedrooms to accommodate eight people. This house appeared to have all the amenities—space was never an issue. 
However this property fell tragically short of being able to provide the very basics in human existence. Although there was plenty of kitchen space, we found only one knife, no condiments of any type, no towel or potholder. Big signs on the dishwasher and the ice maker warned us not to use either.
We quickly discovered there was no internet. The owner and property manager fielded all our calls about the internet, lack of towels, a blown circuit breaker and no instructions regarding how to operate anything in the house including the gas fireplace and fire pit. None of our requests for assistance were heeded and the owner ignored our requests and lied over and over about the internet issue. His arrogance was phenomenol.
The house had many safety issues. After we fixed the circuit breaker ourselves the lights continued to flicker throughout our stay. We finally were able to light the fireplace and fire-pit after several gas explosions. The steps to the hot tub were not well-lit. There were no bathmats to prevent slipping on the tile bathroom floors. One of the guests slipped on the unmarked step into a lower level kitchen and injured his shoulder after being hurled 6 feet into a wall. He may need medical treatment. The sprinkler system came on when we were trying to use the hot tub in early evening making the steps even more treachorus and rendering the seating and firepit unusable.
Then, when waking up the final day, just to add insult to injury—the owner and the cleaning staff arrived two hours ahead of schedule (while they were still asleep!) to sweep the remaining guests to the curb on our departure date. Oh, and by the way, they were there finally fixing the internet in the garage, further proof that they were lying through their teeth about what the problem was.
Although we made the best of it and enjoyed each other’s company we were disappointed and somewhat outraged about how we were treated. We do not recommend this property to anyone. I really think we should have gotten our money back... it was that bad.

Owner's Response: We are very proud of our home and strive to provide every traveler with the best experience possible. This is a lovely property which has been completely renovated several months ago, including brand new two kitchens, as well as brand new washer and dryer. We even go to the extent of providing laundry detergent for our guests’ convenience. The kitchens are fully equipped, with all the cooking and dining utensils. The day of check in we familiarize our guests with the entire property and make sure everything is to our guest’s liking, as well as address any concerns our guests might have.
We take our travelers experience very seriously and were extremely surprised of the reaction of this guest. We had the guest check all amenities provided in the house at the time of his arrival and he had no issues, nor did he express any concerns during his stay. The circuit breaker was restored within minutes of tripping. The day our guests left, the front door and gate were left open one hour prior to checkout. Assuming our guests had already left, the housekeeper entered the property and found the front door key at the kitchen counter.
The quality level of our property and the level of service we provide is evidenced in the overwhelmingly positive experience all other guests have had staying with us. We welcome our guests to check the property prior to cheek-in.
