Southern California Dreaming with L.A. Vacation Houses

Sun, surf and celebrity make Los Angeles the exciting entertainment capital of the world. Whether you want to spend days exploring area attractions or playing at amusement parks, there are hundreds of thrilling things to do here. After a busy day of sightseeing, treat yourself to the comfort of an L.A. vacation house or apartment. Here, you’ll find plenty of options to make your stay enjoyable, including kid-friendly and non-smoking properties, laundry facilities and on-site parking.

Olvera Street Captures L.A. Heritage

Begin your L.A. vacation at the city's birthplace near downtown on historic Olvera Street. The city's early days are recreated in Olvera’s Mexican Marketplace, where vendors sell hand-crafted items and delectable dishes while Mariachi bands stroll along. Tours of Olvera take you past colorful murals, lovely old buildings and folkloric dancers for a day of rousing fun.

Seeing Stars of a Different Kind at Griffith Observatory

Atop a Mount Hollywood’s ridge, Griffith Observatory features incredible views of the city and fascinating exhibits and shows. Admission and parking are always free, as are the public Zeiss and solar telescopes and monthly star parties. Built in 1935, the observatory is beautifully historic with colorful tiled mosaics and captivating architecture.

Hooray for Hollywood!

Glamorous and gritty, Hollywood is legendary. Along Hollywood Boulevard, trace Tinseltown's Walk of Fame, admire the architecture of Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre, relish a Broadway musical at Pantages Theatre and belt out your favorite Disney tunes at the El Capitan Theatre’s sing-alongs. Elsewhere in Hollywood, rub elbows with celebrities at Hollywood Bowl concerts, hike to the Hollywood sign or tour movie backlots at Paramount Studios.

Experience L.A. the Natural Way

Hiking the hills around L.A. gives you perfect bird's-eye views of the city, and you may even see a celebrity or two. Some favorite trails include the four-mile loop from Griffith Park and the hike through Runyon Canyon, where you can join a free yoga class and savor stunning sunsets. Los Liones is another beautiful hike between Topanga State Park and the coast.

Venture to Venice Beach

Venice Beach is often a jaw-dropping experience, with performers strolling the boardwalk and Muscle Beach bodybuilders strutting their stuff. Take a gondola ride through Venice canals or shop, dine and drink at the ultra-cool businesses on Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

Chic Design in the Fashion District

Downtown L.A.'s Fashion District is home to some of the hippest, most creative designers. Hundreds of wholesale showrooms and fabric stores line district streets, and many hold sample sales for the public monthly. Year-round retail shopping is available in the district’s Santee Alley.

There’s a Reason It’s Called Sunny Southern California

With nearly 300 days of sunshine a year and average highs in the high-60s to low-80s, L.A. is the perfect vacation spot if you’re looking for nice weather. Those who appreciate overcast days are in luck if they visit in June, when the marine layer settles in at night and often carries into the next day. September and October are excellent months to travel to L.A. to enjoy excellent fall weather and light crowds.

Getting to Los Angeles Is Easy!

Car-centric L.A. is eminently accessible by private car, and a drive into the city via Pacific Coast Highway offers an iconic California experience. Flying into the city is also convenient, with LAX and smaller Orange County and Burbank airports offering hundreds of daily flights. Be sure to grab a rental car at the airport to travel around L.A. in comfort. Boating and cruising into L.A. are also popular options, docking at various marinas and the Port of Los Angeles' World Cruise Center.

Second bedroom had no light, and just a queen hide-a-bed that was a solid board with thin mattress. Not very comfortable but fine for the price. Couch smelled heavily of dog after initial room deodorizer wore off - just beware if you have allergies. We didn't really use any appliances or electronics because we were only there 2 nights but they looked too notch.

The owner was very easy to work with -- good clear contract and house guide, very responsive on questions. The location is great. It's walking distance from Montana Avenue in Santa Monica and right near a set of stairs that go up the side of the canyon; you will see fit people running up and down these stairs at all times of day and it is endlessly entertaining. Parking is easy. The house itself is super, with lots of space for a family to be together and separate as needed. Our teens loved the ping pong and foosball tables. I enjoyed going to the Farmers Market and cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. Our kids enjoyed feeding crickets to the gecko. There is good outdoor space that we would have used if we had had better weather. The only negatives were that the bunk bed weren't hugely comfortable for teenagers -- would probably be just fine for younger kids -- and that there was a lot of dog hair from the owners' dog. But overall this is a terrific place to stay and we would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend or stay here again ourselves.
