About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Location, location, location. You simply will not find a more charming and centrally located Hollywood vacation spot. The Sunset Hollywood Bungalows are 1 block south of Sunset Blvd, in the heart of literally everything. Sunset Hollywood Bungalow 2 is the smaller of two rental homes, and has 1 bedroom. The price for the small Bungalow is 187 per night.

Scroll to the bottom of this page for all current pictures.

These are separate houses, with no walls connecting you to someone else. Designed in the Hollywood Craftsman style of the main house, which was built in 1920 for studio employees, writers, and actors. The back house is completely private and separate from the front house. The back house, Sunset Hollywood Bungalow 2, was built in ’08 from the ground up to make this a dream vacation or months-long rental.

The Bungalow has a big bedroom, huge bright and cheerful living room, and a tiled (Hollywood-style) bathroom with tub & shower. The kitchen is big and has everything you need to cook in if you wish. Sunset Bungalow 2 has French doors that lead from the living area to an enormous—and completely private--patio, cooled by a grand old tree..


The pictures are fully accurate and recent.

You have your own parking space, and a second space is available.

I (the host/owner) am a Hollywood native. I will help if you need suggestions, directions, etc., so that you have a wonderful Hollywood experience. The only thing I can't promise is celebrity sightings, but follow the paparazzi and the oversized sunglasses and you're sure to see them.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you.

About Kirby Tepper

I bought this house in 2001 and built the guest Bungalow in 2008. My father was born in L.A., so I'm a 2nd generation Angeleno--in fact, my Dad went to Hollywood High, just around the corner from here. And my mom spent her entire career at CBS television, also within a few minutes walking distance of my house.

I spent much of my career in the entertainment world...I started my career as a Broadway (New York) performer, then moved back to my hometown of L.A. to do some t.v. and film, eventually becoming a songwriter for various shows, most proudly having written a song in the first 'Shrek' movie. Several years back I made a career transition and became a psychotherapist, obviously a big change, and I love my work.

Kirby Tepper purchased this house in 2008

Why Kirby Tepper chose Hollywood

The Sunset Hollywood Bungalow is my pet project. I love Hollywood and am amazed and elated that it has had such a fantastic renaissance.

There isn't a better location in Hollywood to experience the feel of what has happened here in the last several years. It's within walking distance of all the big Hollywood landmarks, theatres, and metro stops. For example, you can walk 5 minutes to the metro, take the metro one stop, and you're at Universal Studios. It's only a few minutes by car to the Museums, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood. People come here from all over the world, I live vicariously as they discover fun things to do, places to eat, clubs, etc.

The main house is a classic Hollywood Bungalow built in 1920 for studio workers. In 2008 I had the back (smaller) Bungalow built from the ground up, so it's brand new.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to major tourist attractions, tour buses, subways and L.A. metro, restaurants, shopping.

Very clean (see reviews for confirmation), very private.

Parking for 2 cards (unheard of in Los Angeles, trust me!)


Car: recommended

The Sunset Hollywood Bungalow is located in a family-oriented neighborhood surrounded by everything Hollywood has to offer. It is a couple of minutes south of Mann's Chinese theater and Hollywood/Highland, 15 min. drive from downtown L.A., and between 20 to 40 min. (depending on traffic) to Santa Monica beach area.

Other Activities: racquetball, shopping, basketball court, boating, snowboarding, spa

Solar Powered Home. Ask the owner for suggestions about restaurants and attractions. Fantastic restaurants nearby. You won't necessarily need to rent/hire a car. I recommend it because Los angeles is big, but many guests stay at the Bungalow without a car of their own and are amazed at the centrality of the location.

Wonderful stay at Sunset Hollywood Bungalow! Walking distance to all the action, we even happened to be in town for the Spiderman red-carpet event! The craziness of the crowds and celebrities was exciting! Kirby is a very gracious host and is quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Thanks for a great stay Kirby!

Cannot overstate how fabulous this place was. Location-just one actually 1/2 block from Sunset Blvd-was amazing. Bungalow was spotless and so comfortable.

We were in LA to attend the Hollywood Fringe Festival so again the location was perfect. Plus the bed was very comfortable and my husband can be fussy so that always scores points with him. Most importantly the owner truly treats you like a guest-you are not just someone renting his place.

Centrally located

  • 3 of 5

While my daughter attended a class on Hollywood Blvd, we were able to walk to her class which only took 8 minutes. The back patio was a life preserver during my stay. I'm from a sparsely populated area, so to have a little tranquility was nice. Kirby was also attentive and reachable.
