PLEASE READ!!!: When making a request, please send an 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 after 7 days.

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.

SHORT DRIVE to:

Griffith Park, The Observatory, Downtown Los Angeles, Staples Center, LA County Museum, MOCA, Little Tokyo, Japanese American Museum of Art, Geffen Contemporary Museum, the Disney Music Hall, China Town, LA Zoo, Farmers Market at the Grove, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica Beach, Malibu, Pasadena Rose Bowl & Rose Parade, Getty Center Museum & Getty Villa Malibu, Norton Simon Museum, Disney Land, Six Flags, Watts Towers, Hollywood Sign, Malibu Beach, Los Angeles International Airport, Burbank, Burbank Airport, North Hollywood, Studio City, and MUCH MORE!

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!

Huge historic home

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. It felt like I was living in the 40's. Location was fabulous, close to everything. Kevin answered all of my concerns and the price for the place was unreal. The only negitive thing I would say is finding a parking space in front of the rental was just about impossible. We did have a garage but we rented a mini van and if we parked in the garage it was almost impossible to get out but I was warned in advance. I highly recommend this property on your vacation to L A. I would definitely stay there again! Thanks Kevin for the use of your property!!!

Absolutely beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as described and as photographed, but one thing I was not expecting was how stunning the quality of the light was. Sunsets here are just absolutely gorgeous, and the lighting within the home, combined with all the architectural details, make for beautiful evenings. I wound up staying in as much as going out, just because the ambience was so pleasant. Great location and a great value. I'd definitely rent this home again.

Classic Hollywood home in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

What a great home in the Hollywood Hills. Just a short walk to Hollywood and Highland and perfectly situated to stroll to the Bowl. Large rooms, terrific views, well-appointed kitchen with everything one could need. The shared front loggia and patio added much to the experience. Very responsive and accessible owner as well. We did not want to depart and we look forward to coming back for a longer stay the next time. Highly recommended!

Beautiful old Hollywood home.

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay in this home in the hills. The home is very comfortable and the view from the living room is the best. The owner was so easy to deal with and would highly recommend this home for your L.A. vacation.

Excellent experience in a great apartment

We booked the apartment on short notice and were very pleased on how everything worked out with Kevin and Michael. They are excellent hosts. The Apartment is really roomy, in excellent shape and nicely decorated.

Thanks again for the wonderful days in Hollywood
