About the property

Gorgeous Views 2200sf 2-story Spanish 3 Bedrooms+2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Amazing Enormous 2200 square foot Spanish-Style Two-story Townhome built in 1926 with breathtaking views of Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles in the charming, historic, neighborhood of HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS. We also have a large 2 bedroom unit in the same building, so if you have a larger group you may book both to accommodate your party if they are both available (#449198).

Hollywood Living at it's Finest! Just 5 BLOCKS from the Metro and the world-famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre, yet still private and intimate. Why drive when it's a quick walk down to EVERYTHING? Want to go to the Hollywood Bowl? Four blocks. Get on the freeway? Five blocks, yet it is completely unheard and unseen. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!

Originally built for a silent film star, this home has had a long history of famous tenants, including the Oscar-Winning screenwriter of 'The Sting'! Ten-foot ceilings in the living room are flanked by 5' tall windows and fireplace and beautiful spiral staircase with original 1920's ironwork. The Master Bedroom has its own fireplace, and Bedroom 2 has views of another less-known Hollywood landmark, the statuesque Hightower! Both full bathrooms have showers. There is a washer/dryer located in the garage, and keyless entry at both entrances. The courtyard is available for your use, and is shared with one permanent tenant, but the property has it's own entrance outside of the courtyard if complete privacy is desired. Heating is central (separated by floor), and each room has its own AC wall unit. We’ve recently added updated lighting to all the bedrooms, dining room and courtyard.

This townhome was gorgeously appointed by a professional designer with high-end furnishings including B&B Italia sofa, B&B Italia bed, mid-century modern pieces by top designers of the era, lots of fine art, as well as contemporary and antique pieces, and four flat screen TVs. We know you will not want to leave this beautiful home. There is a small one car garage for your use. If you plan on using it (recommended!), please bring a small to medium size car, or be prepared for some extra maneuvering. Street parking is free and there is a parking permit for your use. The main living area is street level, and all 3 bedrooms are located on the floor below, accessed by the spiral staircase in the living room.

There is NO smoking inside this property of any kind, but guests may smoke on the porch and outdoor area. If any evidence of smoking is found within the premises, guests will forfeit their deposit. Pets are ONLY ALLOWED WITH PRIOR APPROVAL. Last minute guests must provide ID and present the credit card used for the reservation. For fraud protection, we do call the credit card company for verification of funds in those cases.

When making a request, please send an VRBO EMAIL request first before calling, thanks! We try to keep thorough electronic records so we can better serve you and avoid booking complications! There is a 3-Night Minimum Stay unless there's last minute vacancy, and there is also a cleaning fee of $150. Please ask about availability as the calendar is not always accurate, but we do our best to keep it current. For the refundable deposit, if there is no damage found post-stay or other expenses due, it is refunded automatically directly from VRBO , which begins processing 7 days after your departure.

Outstanding location in the heart of Hollywood!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the huge historic Hollywood home. The location is perfect and the bedrooms are spacious. The views from the oversized widows in the living room are spectacular. The house has everything you need. We had a great time and definitely recommend staying here.

Exquisite Accommodations!

  • 4 of 5

Seeing is believing! The photos are authentic yet does not capture the essence of how incredibly awesome the architecture is for this beautiful place. The accommodations were spacious, comfortable and clean, with plentiful cooking utensils to meet our cooking needs. If you like to cook you will be pleased.

Some of the highlights of this place are:

The view of the vegetation, the landscape and the city view of the Los Angeles area. Breath taking.

The decor and the unique furniture layout in each room.

The paintings.

The floor plan with beautiful hardwood flooring throughout the home.

The lighting with dimmer switches throughout the home. The chandelier in the living room is astounding!

Windows and more windows. I love it!

Friendly neighbors.

Walking distance to the main attractions in Hollywood, such as the Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood Walk of fame, the Wax Museum, Chinese Mann Theatre and a plethora of restaurants and entertainment establishments.

The owner Kevin is responsive and answers any questions you may have before your arrival and throughout your stay.

You will not be disappointed with this choice for your accommodations while staying in the Los Angeles area . This home will definitely be on the top of my list as a place to stay for my next Los Angeles visit.

Thanks Kevin

Robin- Texas

Happy we stayed here

  • 4 of 5

Really fun quirky place! Needs a few repairs. My only complaint is the creaky stairs up to one of the bedrooms. My legs aren't long enough to jump two stairs to keep the creaking to a minimum;) I love that they try to keep it all original. Has a lot of character. Owner was really nice and helpful with questions about the area. Parking is challenging. Take the owners advice and rent a SMALL car!

We loved this huge, historic, charming property. Location was prefect, walking distance to everything we needed. Walk to Runyon Canyon, Walk to Hollywood Blvd. The house was clean, kitchen was fully stocked, parking was fine. (we had two small rental cars). Owner communication was perfect. We would absolutely stay here again. Loved it!

Classic Hollywood Hills - just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

I used to live in the Hollywood Hills, not far from this place, and really wanted revisit my old neighborhood and the great places I used to hang out. This was PERFECT for that! The location is several blocks above the Kodak Theater and very central to most things worth doing/seeing when in LA. The space was super charming, clean, nicely decorated and has stayed true to the era (though with today's conveniences like AC, good wifi, etc). If you're looking for that modern, boring corporate look and feel then this might not be for you, but if you want classic hollywood art deco character then this is perfect! The set-up is very nice with the living room and kitchen upstairs and bedrooms down below. There were just three of us so there was more than enough room, but this would still comfortably fit 6 to 7 adults.

As mentioned in many reviews, having a small car is indeed necessary if you want to park in the garage. We flew down and rented a Toyota Yaris, which was a perfect fit. Honestly, driving in LA is SO much better in a compact anyway because of small parking spots and narrow roads throughout the city.

Finally, Kevin (the owner) was great! Very responsive if needed and super good-natured. I'd definitely rent again and recommend it to anyone looking for the classic Hollywood experience.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a group of friends for the weekend. House definitely suited the needs for our group of 6! Location was close to everything for the L.A. night scene and the view of downtown L.A. from the living room is amazing and serene! Thank you for helping to make our trip memoriable and definitely look forward to returning in the future!
