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.

WALKING DISTANCE to:

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.

LOTS of space, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Family of four had a great stay here. Lots of room, clean, and convenient to all Hollywood and surrounding areas. Would definitely stay again without hesitation. Everything was as advertised...including the tip about a smaller car to fit in the small garage (so read and follow it and you will be fine). We did Universal studios, Venice Beach, Rodeo, etc.

Absolutely LOVED our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to start! The location of the home is beautiful. Surrounded by charm and gorgeous architecture. I was truly awed. Yes, garage is small, but you're warned about that from the beginning. We were stuck with a suburban as our rental, but still were always able to find parking on the street near the home. All of the neighbors were very friendly and felt safe at all times. The kitchen was perfect, where we cooked several meals. Large dining table for our family of 5. Stepping down into the cozy living room was my favorite part. The home is beautifully and artfully decorated for the perfect balance of character and warmth. The view from the living room is incredible and we loved opening the windows for the cool evening air. The bed in the master bedroom is more comfortable than my bed at home. I never sleep well the first few nights when away from home, but I slept like a baby the entire trip. Again, I loved opening the bedroom windows for fresh cool air. We have 3 girls, ages 10-16, and they were in love with this home. They played hide and go seek several times. I don't know why anyone would ever rent a cold, stuffy, cramped hotel room when you have this amazing home available to you. We are so thankful we chose this home and would highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates architecture, history, character, and design, all mixed with coziness. Thank you so much Kevin for a lovely stay. You made our trip!!

The property was amazing! Wonderful views, great neighborhood, clean and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing experience. We loved spending evenings in the courtyard with the lights on. Kevin was so helpful and accommodating to all our needs and questions. He recommended lyft which we used a lot and were cheaper than uber. The house had anything we needed and was so fun to stay in. We enjoyed coming back from exploring to the house. We met the neighbors and learned different ways to get down to Hollywood Blvd. Best vacation and by far this house was so much better than a hotel. It fit all 7 of us and the rooms were great sizes with very comfy beds. Would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

Fantastic home in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this beautiful townhouse in the Hollywood Heights neighborbood of LA. The location couldn't be more convenient, right off of Hollywood Blvd. in proximity to just about anything you would want to do in LA. I especially loved the idea of living up in the hills and having the experience of driving up and down the winding streets. The home is located in a very quite residential area and if you climb further up the hill, you will find yourself facing the famous Hollywood sign on the other side!

Our favorite part of the townhouse was the gorgeous living room, with its amazing views! We spent a good amount of time hanging out there, drinking wine and enjoying each others company amongst the beautiful LA scenery.

The house was very clean and the 3 bedrooms, located downstairs, were very comfortable. My husband and I stayed in the master, which is the largest bedroom. My parents stayed in the second largest room a bit further down the hall. It was great to have the rooms separated a bit, it gave everyone a sense of privacy and never did we feel like we were in each others way. The other convenient aspect of the home is that there are 2 full bathrooms downstairs, allowing each guest to have their own.

Kevin was a extremely helpful, I called and texted several times with questions and he was very good about always being available to answer. It was a pleasure dealing with someone who you can tell really cares about his guests and his home.

The artwork and decor in the home is fabulous too! We loved all of the paintings and furniture, it was truly a treat to stay there and we would love to come back soon!!

Charming home in Hollywood Hills

  • 5 of 5

House oozes with charm! We had plenty of room for 6 of us. Beautiful views from a large picture window. We loved our dinner in the courtyard strung with white lights. Location was perfect for exploring Hollywood, WB studios, and Universal studios. Our hike up Runyon Canyon at sunset was amazing!
