Overview

The Flats Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Studio apartment, tucked away on a grand old Beverly Hills Estate, once home to Joseph Kennedy. Just once block south of the Beverly Hills Hotel, smack in the middle of Beverly Hills' most exclusive neighborhood. Perfect for an individual or a couple looking for an elite address within a tranquil setting. When traveling with a child, request an extra bed. Bright, cheerful, but simple. This apartment is functional and comfortable, not luxurious. Full service kitchen. A wall of six French doors look out over a half-acre garden, shaded by tall Eucalyptus trees and lush bougainvillia.

For cocktails walk over to the Polo Lounge. Swim in a salt water ool, or dine under the stars on your own private patio. Within walking distance to all shops and restaurants on Rodeo Drive. Wifi, cable TV and on site parking included.

Location Convenience: Offers a centrally located and elite address. Within walking distance to all shops and restaurants in downtown Beverly Hills. 5 minutes from Cedars Sinai Hospital; 7 minutes from the UCLA campus. An easy drive to Venice, Malibu, downtown LA, theme parks and the San Fernando Valley. Also serves as a comfortable home base for day trips to Santa Barbara, Newport Beach, the San Diego Zoo and Sea World. In short, a peaceful oasis in the middle of teeming Los Angeles.

About Deborah Blum

I am a documentary writer/director and my husband Dale Herd is a screenwriter. We have three children and have lived in Beverly Hills for twenty years. This Rodeo Drive property has been in my family for two generations. The house has a happy and peaceful vibe.

Deborah Blum purchased this studio in 1989

Why Deborah Blum chose Los Angeles

Historic property located on one of the most exclusive streets in the world. Safe, beautiful and tranquil neighborhood but centrally located and within walking distance to downtown Beverly Hills.

This house has been in Deborah's family since 1941. Deborah's father was a Hollywood screenwriter who wrote STALAG 17 with Billy Wilder. We bought it from her parents 22 years ago. It's a well known house in Beverly Hills because it's one of two examples of the Craftsman style in the city. People often tell us it's their favorite house in Beverly Hills.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Debbie and Dale... I couldn't have asked for a better location, right in the heart of Beverly Hills and convenient to everything! The studio is cheerful and comfortable. Thanks for your hospitality. I will book again the next time I'm in Los Angeles.

Beautiful, historic home in Beverly Hills

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a 5 day stay at this lovely property. This historic property in the middle of Beverly Hills was very special and the owner was very gracious. Grocery stores, wonderful restaurants, and shopping are all within walking distance. We enjoyed eating outdoors on the patio and swimming in the pool which is large enough for swimming laps. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. We will defintely stay here again the next time we are in LA visiting our son.

This place was a find - a perfect guest house in a beautiful neighborhood. The studio cottage is just as it appears in the photographs - well appointed with everything you need - all neat, clean, comfortable, spacious, in a garden setting with access to outdoor tables and chairs and a swimming pool - with the Beverly Hills Hotel, just a few yards away. The cottage is also walking distance to restaurants, great breakfast places, pharmacies, groceries, banks and Rodeo Drive shopping. A big plus is wifi, lots of parking, and the proximity of wonderful hosts in the main house, just in case you need them and total privacy if you don't. Couldn't have asked for anything more!

What a sweet little guest house!

  • 5 of 5

Thank-you Debbie for the lovely stay we had at your Rodeo Dr. VRBO. The space is so light and clean and has everything one would need. The swimming pool was so much fun for our grand daughter and a wonderful way to unwind after a day of touristing! We loved your sweet pups Tookie and Jack too! Thanks again we will be back again some day!

The Perfect Location for a trip to LA!

  • 5 of 5

This Rodeo Drive studio is a clean, well kept, & pleasant carriage house that is privately located within the large corner lot of an historic Beverly Hills mansion. If you want to stay in Beverly Hills and not spend a fortune on a hotel room, this is your place! My daughter and I enjoyed a week here for her Spring Break...the studio was perfect for the two of us with a modernized kitchen, Big flat screen TV, a big closet, and updated bath. We enjoyed breakfast on the brick patio. The next time we visit, there will be room for my full family of four by using the larger 2nd floor space that is available too. There's ample off-street parking right next to the carriage house. The owners are very nice and made us feel very welcome (they will tell you all about the fascinating history of the house and let you know of the famous past & present neighbors). There is a gorgeous pool & sunning patio for full use by the guests. Famous Rodeo Drive shopping & Beverly Hills restaurants are within a few blocks to the south and the legendary Beverly Hills Hotel is a short walk directly north (be sure to enjoy some time at the Polo Lounge for lunch or dinner/drinks and request a patio table...no telling who you might see there). Rodeo Drive studio is a great central location for experiencing all that Hollywood/LA has to offer. We will definitely be back (soon we hope)!
