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.

                                                                                                  We rented this home for a week over New Year's to attend the Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena- 6 adults and 2 children. It is an absolutely beautiful house, in a quiet neighborhood, with lovely spaces inside and out. Everything was accurately described and the owner responded quickly to any questions I had. The description didn't do justice to the outdoor patio area, balconies, and spacious, professional kitchen. The square footage, WiFi, and espresso machine should definitely be added to the listing if they haven't been already. The 4th bedroom (nursery) is small, but that was described accurately in the listing and worked fine for us. As a large group, we loved that there were several different spaces to hang out - the large kitchen with a granite island, a dining table that seats 12+, seating by the gas fireplace, a living room, a den/TV room - and a shaded patio by the pool with comfy furniture. Everyone could do their thing in comfort. All was set up well for our arrival, including the air mattress we needed for the kids and essentials like shampoo, bar soap, lotion, dish soap, laundry detergent - all the things you hate to have to buy when you need them just once or twice. The owner provides a very clear manual ahead of time over email, and in a binder at the home. We didn't miss satellite/cable at all as the options via Apple TV were more than enough for us with NetFlix, etc Taking public transport to the parade was easy and fast from this location, which was one of our reasons for choosing it (straight shot down Fair Oaks Avenue on the #260). There are good places to walk/hike nearby. I was initially worried it might feel awkward to rent someone's primary residence, but with all the pleasant, excellent communication ahead and during our trip, it felt like we were staying a friend's house instead of a stranger's. We visited a lot of neat places, but our favorites were The Getty museum, the California Science Center/Shuttle Endeavor, Venice canals, Leo Carillo tide pools, the view from the Griffith Observatory, and most of all, touring the parade floats up close after watching the parade- amazing! I highly recommend this listing :)

The surrounding neighborhood was very clean and quiet. After taking a 17 hour flight this property was the perfect get away. I will definitely recommend this property to any friends or family. Jo was very polite and helpful in anything we may needed. I would like to take this time to thank Jo for th excellent experience. Job well done
