Hollywood Hills House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

6000 Square Foot Home !

This home, like the Picasso and Chagall on it's interior walls, is 'Original, And One Of A Kind' property. As you walk through the copper hammered front door and enter the anteroom, you are transported to the upper levels in an open framed cast iron elevator, which climbs through four stories of wrap around circular stone staircase, during the ascent your senses are brought to full attention to bear witness to every exquisite detail as each floor is revealed. Floor to ceiling glass walls accentuate the grand scale of the master suite giving way to jetliner views stretching from downtown LA to the ocean from the master bed. Draped with tapestries, fabric and hand made rugs, there has never been a more seamless mix of luxury and comfort.

Adjoining the master bedroom is the master bath, encased in exquisite jade colored marble and boasting a Jacuzzi with views over the city and a double headed shower. Three other en suite bedrooms boast custom fixtures and layouts designed so everyone lives like a king. Antique folding wooden doors encase floor to ceiling windows on the fourth floor, which open up to a stunning all tile pool and spa, as well as an endless view from the city to the water. 18' cathedral ceilings soar overhead, and the distressed copper kitchen cabinets accompany an antique stove, and crystal and cast iron chandeliers. With this turnkey property, hailed as 'the best house in LA', you are renting not just a home, but a lifestyle. Bring your toothbrush, leave your cares, and step into a life where anything is possible and nothing forbidden.

The modern villas has been home to many wonderful artist such as Stevie Wonder, John Travolta, Danny DeVito, Jesse James, Kat Von D, Eddie Van Halen, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Tom Ford, Annie Liebovitz, Carrie Elwes, Mark Canton(creator of the movie 300) Ryan Cavanaugh, and Stanley Tucci, just to name a few.

About James

Owner is in the entertainment industry in addition to being a passionate and experimental builder. He is famous for his architectural innovations, attention to detail, and the fit and finish of his properties. He wants the house to be enjoyed, and loves sharing his deep knowledge of the local restaurant, nightlife, cultural and music scenes with guests. He sees his design work as creation of experiential art designed to facilitate a stress free and sensually fulfilling lifestyle filled with aesthetic stimulation and the simple pleasures of spending time with friends and family.

Why James chose Los Angeles County

This house is situated in the playground of the rich and famous. The Hollywood Hills area is home to the most beautiful people in the world, and this property is ideally situated to take advantage of the shopping on Rodeo, a night out on Sunset, and world class restaurants and cultural institutions. You may have heard nightmares about the traffic in LA, that will not be an issue as everything worth doing is right in this area. As you ascend the drive to this villa in the sky you will feel your everyday worries falling away, when the door opens you will know you are home in the house you always dreamed of...if only for the night.

What makes this house unique

This house is a deal closer. If you are looking to wow your future partner, meet the women of your dreams, or fall in love again with the one that you have...and you can't get it done here, then you are not going to be able to get it done. People come to stay the weekend...and leave a year later...and the only complaint was that they had to leave too soon.

We love it here!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the "Panorama" (another property owned/managed by the Modern Villas) in January for a getaway and we loved it so much, we decided to come back and bring friends. The house we previously stayed in wasn't available, but this ended up being even better (and much bigger). This four-story villa is truly luxurious and is a one-of-a-kind old Hollywood-style home. There were 8 of us and we had such a great time. Heated pool (with a view!), steam room shower, amazing attention to detail in the interior design and located right behind the Hollywood Bowl (we even heard the music one night). We will definitely be coming back!

Frankie goes to Hollywood

  • 5 of 5

We have rented from James for the past three years. Have stayed in a number of his properties. He has always been a pleasure to deal with, great host, his properties are clean, well maintained and better then advertised. The Villa in the Sky is easily the best he has to offer!! Would highly recommend this and any of his properties if you are planning a trip to LA. Will continue to be a repeat customer.

Privacy in a big city!

  • 5 of 5

Love the home, love the location. Great getaway on a dead end street, only a few minutes from our Hollywood Bowl destination, but felt so private compared to our other LA stays, highly recommended.

Beautiful 4 story home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely amazing. Every one of the four floors are filled with beautiful furniture and art pieces. From riding the elevator to swimming in the fourth floor pool, it was truly a wonderful experience staying in this home.

Great Ambiance!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into this beautiful home we were swept away! Upon entrance we were greeted with soft music playing throughout the house that made for a soothing welcome. We also loved that as we ascended up the elevator each floor would light up showing an amazing decor and the top floor view was truly spectacular! Overall we had a great experience with Josh and the home! We hope to stay again next summer!

Jewel in the Hollywood Hills

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this home with a few colleagues and we felt that we were living like celebrities! We spent most of our time in offices around the city so coming home to such a beautiful space made for relaxing nights at home. The location was great, just up the hill from Hollywood Blvd which has some amazing restaurants and night life. Overall we felt that this business trip was one of our best and largely in part to the stunning home we stayed at!

Thanks again!
