Tucked away on a quiet street, on one of Hollywood's most cherished enclaves sits this gorgeous Swiss chalet style home. This street of impressive, celebrity-owned, architecturally skilled houses are much sought after. STUNNING VIEWS from the house and deck take in such notable landmarks in the valley below as Universal Studios & Theme Park, NBC Studios, Griffith Park, City Walk, etc. The Mulholland Retreat is a comfortable alternative to a high priced hotel.
On entering the home, you will find a beautiful dining room that seats eight comfortably. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the appliances and amenities needed for gourmet dining. Enjoy the ambience in the family room with cathedral ceilings, huge gas fireplace, 60' Sony flat screen television and right outside a lanai where hummingbirds entertain and breath-taking sunrises greet each morning.
A journey of stairs reveal the many beautiful rooms offered. Massive windows allow light to penetrate every corner of the lower living room with its large gas fireplace and cozy furnishings, baby grand piano and fine art pieces from around the world.
On the second lower level the master bedroom with a queen-size bed and European duvet, has all the comforts of a Honeymoon Suite with its own private bathroom with oversized tub and separate shower. Two spacious bedrooms occupy the third lower level; one with a queen-sized bed; the other containing two extra-long twin beds. These two bedrooms share a second bathroom.
On the outside deck you can sit in comfort around a fire-pit roasting marshmallows or cooking steaks on the outdoor barbecue grill before relaxing in the always heated spa for a night cap.
Location: The Mulholland Retreat is perfectly situated for fun, entertainment and sight seeing, shopping and night life!! The house is close to Universal Studios Theme Park, movie and television studios, the Hollywood Bowl, The Walk of Fame, LA’s Sunset Strip and Beverly Hill's Rodeo Drive and is less than 10 miles to downtown L.A. and the Santa Monica beach beyond. A car should be considered a necessity while staying at The Mulholland Retreat. The property has ample off street parking for at least four cars.
My husband Alan and myself have raised 3 daughters in Texas and Southern California. We all love traveling to Hawaii, Europe, Africa and Ireland. Our grown daughters live in the UK and Paris and Berlin. For fun and work we especially love Africa and plan on living there someday soon.
Vicky purchased this house in 2001
Of all of our homes that we have lived in, this is by far, our favorite. The magnificent mountain and city views make this home stand far above the rest. This house oozes with coziness aund touches of whimsy.
The 2 huge gas fireplaces are the crowning glory along with 16 foot ceilings and comfort all around.
We love to share our home. It gives us great joy to be able to do it. We have many happy memories here and know you will make your own too.
Thank you for your very kind and gracious words reviewing our property,
The Mulholland Retreat.
I appreciate you and your lovely family staying at the house and only wish it could have been longer. You are great people!!!
This was an amazing home - Great location and great views. Very comfortable with great amenities - Everything you could wish for was made available.
Vicky is fantastic - Very responsive and helpful. We were welcomed by her daughter on arrival - She was so friendly and made us feel at home immediately.
Highly recommend - A great vacation...
The house was clean from the fresh shampoo carpet, every bathroom, the front lawn and backyard. Nothing bogus about this house, all amenities was exactly how it was stated. Expectations were met and beyond. The area is amazing with peace and quiet, night time view is monumental and the jacuzzi and fire place both are amazing. I recommend this home to anyone looking to have a pleasant stay while in LA. Breathtaking.
We wanted a house to host a memorable 4th of July weekend with our sons. The Mulholland retreat was astounding. On every level, our expectations were surpassed. We live in Florida and planned this Holiday reunion with sons and spouses converging from Hawaii, Montana, San Clemente and Los Angeles. We received a warm and comforting welcome from Vicki's daughter, Kele. We were told that if we needed anything at all to call her 24/7. We were instantly swaddled in a perfectly amazing home. Our first night we enjoyed a fabulous view of several fireworks displays across the valley below. The listing could not have prepared us for all the extras because the home has so many amenities. It is spotlessly clean and inviting. All eight of us had really good, deep sleep in the special quiet cocoon of our bedrooms. In the morning the family had breakfast upstairs near my new favorite kitchen. At night the barbeque grill and deck was cozy and inviting. The fire pit brought out the best in conversation. Our cookouts from the grill tasted fantastic. By the second night were were all kids again, making s'mores by the fire. We thought we would ultimately venture out to attractions nearby but the Mulholland retreat is where we wanted to be. Because we have a large family, my husband and I have used vacation rentals before. This is the first time I have ever been compelled to write about our experience and I cannot find the words to describe our reunion. It will forever be remembered by all eight of us as one of our family favorite get togethers. If there was a ten star rating, this place would have to get eleven stars. The weekend was over-the-top, extravagantly fanciful! Don't miss this chance to make the kind of memories that last a lifetime!
A beautiful house located on the hill overlooking the city. Our family had a wonderful time during the stay.
My wife and I spent a week in this hilltop retreat - many interesting books and spectacular views of Studio City. Convenient to stores and to Hollywood where we had several events to attend. We invited guests to stay with us. Apart from the sorta scary narrow and winding streets (!) this was a perfect place to entertain and relax. While we did not use the hot tub and the barbecue, we made good use of the kitchen. Oh, and I got caught up on the History of the Hittites (honest, this was fascinating).
We came from France and chose this house to spend special vacation with our US family.
That was the perfect choice! The house was exactly as described, very clean, spacious, and had everything we needed, even more. We had a fantastic week with my family, we enjoyed this wonderful place so much. The views are amazing, the environment is very “exclusive”, and it’s perfectly situated for sight-seeing.
Vicky was VERY helpful and very responsive. I asked for extras to make our arrival even more special for my family (the house was a surprise for them), and what Vicky prepared was way over my expectations, it was a great surprise for me too, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Your banana bread was delicious.
We also had a warm welcome from Vicky and Alan, they explained everything in detail and answered all of our questions.
I would highly recommend the Mulholland Retreat, truly one of the highlights of our vacation!
