This house is amazing! For my first trip to LA, I had a really good time. I was celebrating my birthday celebrity style. The house is so big, you can literally get lost in it. Its in the perfect location for sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, and all main attractions.
7-15min driving distance to:
-hollywood blvd, sunset blvd
-santa monica blvd
-observatory deck for the hollywood hills sign.
20-30min to downtown, LAX staples center, Nokia theatre, la live, etc..
We were able to take cabs to these locations for about $14-25 ow. But we split the driving costs. But traveling by yourself can become expensive. Car is highly recommended.
There is plenty of things to keep you entertained if you decide to stay inside. The pool table, pool & jacuzzi. Unfortunately it rained all weekend, so we weren't able to take advantages of the outdoor activities. But I can definitely see myself revisiting in the summer to enjoy those amenities.
I would have given this a 5star rating, but there was one thing that held it up. Since the house is in Hollywood hills, there is very little to no phone reception. From a group of 8 only 2 were able to receive reception in certain areas of the house. This is something thats beyond their control, but there is a house phone that is available for use. The property manager, David was more than accommodating to provide us the access codes & phone numbers. Fortunately there is wifi access and I was able to hook up my computer and receive the internet.
David is a huge help and pleasure to work with. Great communicator, a huge resource, very responsive, and accessible. Thanks for your help in making this weekend a blast my friend & family! We look forward to coming back! :)
