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 6' tall windows and fireplace and beautiful spiral staircase with original 1920's ironwork. The Master Bedroom has it's 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, and keyless entry. 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. The double doors of the dining room open to the porch.

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, custom window coverings, 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.

Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hollywood & Highland, Tours of the Stars Homes, Kodak Theatre, Disney's El Capitan Theatre, Grauman's Chinese Theater, Madam Tussauds, Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood & Vine, Pantages Theatre, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Hollywood Christmas Parade, as well as the newest and hottest night clubs, bars, & restaurants in Los Angeles.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fanatastic Hollywood Hills Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I had a vacation/wedding planned in L.A. for a family of 7 and after reviewing the cost of a hotel in the Hollywood Hills area I quickly found myself looking at thousands of dollars until I came across this GEM of a rental. A classic Hollywood Hills home minutes from the Hollywood Bowl and Chinese Theater, complete with 3 bedrooms, a huge living area, kitchen, parking for a mid sized car, courtyard and all the amenities you would expect from an expensive hotel for half the price and everything you would ever need, this place was a god send. The owner is completely professional, all communication was prompt and responded to my requests within minutes. 10/10 points from me.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this house in Hollywood Hills. It was beautiful inside and had tons of character. We weren't bothered by the uneven floors that have been mentioned by others. We had seven people and the house fit us perfectly. It was close to Hollywood Blvd. and we could just walk there. My husband enjoyed that part because he didn't have to drive down and find parking. We couldn't fit the SUV in the garage, but didn't have any trouble finding parking on the street. I would definitely recommend this house.
