About the property

Decorated with California Cheer Colors. This 1920's triplex building (called Casa Normandie) is located on Normadie Avenue, north of Franklin Avenue, in gorgeous Los Feliz neighborhood/ next door to HOLLYWOOD. We are child friendly and cater to professionals. The common and bed rooms are so large (1850 sq ft.), that a large group of working co-workers can congregate or have plenty of privacy if they choose. ,

Large patio with jacuzzi, BBQ, and fire pit. The unit is 1900 sq. ft. has tons of windows w/ natural light. The unit has a spacious living room with a fireplace, & moldings. There is also a large formal dining room. There are three large bedrooms (3 king beds) and one smaller bedroom (twin BUNK bed). The triplex can house 21 guests (perfect for wedding parties). Safe, green and CENTRALLY LOCATED is praised by guests. We have a stroller, high chair, crib in the master, extra pack n plays, and toddler toys.

The Area: Residential neighborhood called Los Feliz which is next door to HOLLYWOOD. This is one of the most desired, central neighborhoods in LA. There are tons of restaurants, shops and even a movie theater all within walking distance. Famous Vermont Street and Hilhurst Street are less than a ten minute walk away (Los Feliz Village). Griffith park (zoo, hiking, children's park, pony rides, train rides and museum, picnic area) are less than 2 miles away. Studio City is a ten minute car ride away. Lastly, the heart of Los Angeles's famous 'Sunset and Vine Street' (Walk of Fame) is less than 4 miles away. You are centered in a green, safe neighborhood, yet you are in the heart of everything Los Angeles has to offer.

Additionally, there is one parking spot, but street parking is so easy, you may not use it.


Most hotels are located on busy streets without trees or grass. When you stay at my home, you're in a safe residential neighborhood, quiet and full of lush greenery.


You can not cook at a hotel. When you stay at my home, you will enjoy your home cooked meals in a full size kitchen. Your meals will be healthier, less expensive, and made by you. Also, Trader Joe's and other wonderful groceries are nearby.


Hotel rooms are cramped. Our units have much more space than any hotel. Your family and friends can enjoy their holiday or business trip without stumbling over and bumping into each other. Each guest can retreat to his or her own bedroom during down time for privacy. House everyone together, rather than renting many rooms at a hotel. Everyone can congregate at home, indoors or in the fragrant garden, instead of a busy uncomfortable hotel lobby.


All units fully furnished and well-stocked with cooking utensils. If your units sleeps eight, expect eight or more complete place settings.

We provide a 'starter amount' of paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags, hand soap, and dishwasher detergent. This amount is enough to hold you over until you get settled and venture to one of the nearby grocery store. We do not provide laundry detergent.

There are linens and comforters on all the beds, as well as two sets of extra sheets in the closet. We also provide two sets towels and wash clothes for each guest.

What if my unit is missing something?

Please call or email Deanna and your missing item will dropped off with 5 hours.

What if I have a maintenance issue?

Please call or email Deanna and the handyman will be out within 24 hours. Most issues can be resolved on the spot. If the issue requires a specialist or part, then the issue may take longer to be resolve. In the end, we will make everything right, because the guest is always right.

Beautful building, well maintained. Love the old charm of the place, great decor. Nice linens and beds where very cozy. Place was very clean when we arrived. Owner was gracious and easy to work with.

LA's best kept accommodation secret

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this gorgeous apartment with my family (spouse, 2 children and parents in law) and it was just fantastic.

It is in a very nice part of LA - safe yet close to many restaurants and facilities.

I can whole heartedly recommend the apartment for visitors from outside the USA (we are from Australia) - it has everything that a visitor could need - it is indeed a home away from home. It has full kitchen with dishwasher and laundry with washing machine and dryer - perfect when travelling with children.

Thank you to the owner for having us and we look forward to returning.

Los Feliz Navidad Great Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time. Your house is so lovely and comfortable, and the location was fabulous with its proximity to Grifith Park, Hollywood, Staples Center, etc. We also were particularly fond of the safe neighbourhood to walk in and quaint Los Feliz Village, in particular Alcove Café only a few blocks away.

Fantastic Apartment for a Family Stay in LA

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited stayed at this lovely home in December 2009. It was perfect for us - myself and partner, 2 yr old and 6 month old and both sets of grandparents. It is indeed a spacious apartment with all of the amenities that one needs when travelling with small children - the clothes washer and dryer were real bonuses. The area is lovely - near the Armenian, Russian and Thai parts of LA so there are plenty of restuarants to choose from. Also, there is a Gelsons supermarket nearby on Franklin Avenue so one can stock up and do cooking at home if one

wishes - the double door fridge freezer was fantastic for this.

Overall a lovely property and good area. We will stay again when we visit LA next.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely gorgeous, with tons of space. Deanna, the owner was great and helped us out with anything we needed. It’s always nice when the owner lives downstairs. It’s located in a beautiful and quiet area. I have rented many times in L.A, and this was by far the best place in the nicest area. My wife and I couldn’t decide which room to take, since they were all so well appointed. The Jacuzzi and BBQ area is a great touch. We were out a lot, but always looked forward to returning home. Thank you Deanna for a wonderful experience! We will be sure to come back, and recommend to all our friends.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My stay in this beautiful flat was absolutely amazing! I, my boyfriend, and 2 friends stayed here and we were surprised at the large space and beautiful decor. We met the owner our first night in and she treated us like family.

We were minutes from all of the major LA attractions yet we felt like we were in our own little world. There is a lovely deck where we spent our mornings drinking coffee and evenings gazing at the gorgeous LA lights.

We will definitely be returning soon! I would stay here forever if I could! Thank you Deanna for your great attention to detail and for making our stay Absolutely Amazing!

LA Sun Vacation Rentals

Our villa is located below the Griffith Observatory in the lush upscale Hollywood Hills. The surrounding residential neighborhood is quiet, safe and peaceful. A ten to fifteen minute car trip takes you to many popular Hollywood and Los Angeles tourist sites, including Universal Studios, Sunset Strip, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Gower Studios, Paramount Studios, and the HOLLYWOOD sign. Even beautiful upscale Old Town Pasadena is only twenty minutes to the East.

While relaxing closer to your home-away-from-home, experience the cozy village of Los Feliz. You'll forget you're in the middle of a bustling mecca. Enjoy the small neighborhood theater, unique shops, post office, and many home-style and international restaurants. Hillhurst Avenue is a comfortable ten minute walk westward, where you will find night clubs, late-night restaurants, shopping, and live entertainment. The Zoo, Equestrian Club, Bird Sanctuary, Travel Town Train Museum, pony rides, Observatory (lazor light shows/tours) , Carousel, children's train ride, and hiking/bicycle trails are an easy twenty minute walk away in the sprawling Griffith Park. Make sure to investigate all that Griffith Park has to offer, such as bike rentals, to make the most of your outdoor adventure.

The Red Line Metro subway is a 15 minute walk and the comprehensive Metro bus line runs two streets away.
