The property is located high in the hills off of Mulholland Drive in the Beverly Hills Post Office Area. It is right in the center of everything in LA, from Beverly Hills to Hollywood to Downtown LA to the beach to the valley. It is on a very quiet, private lane off of Mulholland. Only 6 neighbors live on the lane, who have all lived there for decades. Two of them are well known rock stars, and one of the most famous and successful directors in Hollywood lives next door. It is a wonderful enchanting small lane tucked away off of Mulholland Drive, so that you don't feel like you are in a busy city, yet you are in the middle of all of LA.
I do have two other homes available in Beverly Hills. They each have 4 bedrooms and a pool. Contact me if interested at 310-433-5143

Living in LA since 1990, when I moved there from my home state of Georgia to LA to produce TV commercials. I began buying houses in 1993, remodeling and flipping them, working my way up to this wonderful property. I bought this property in 2005, when it was a mess, and needed a full remodel. It looked like a run-down mountain cabin, and I decided to rebuild it into what it is now- as inspiration I took from modern resort design, like the work of Kelly Werstler, Phillipe Stark, and also architectural masters such as Jon Lautner.
Dan Tarver purchased this estate in 2005
I wanted to experience the iconic California dream house in Beverly Hills. A huge private bold modern architectural compound, with pool and guest house and views. It's a true 'dream house'.
It's located just off Mulholland Drive in a legendary area where James Dean raced cars, Samual Goldwyn played tennis, Eddie Van Halen can still be heard playing his guitar, Jack Nicholson can be seen leaving in his limo an hour before Lakers games, and other celebs have lived for decades because it's the best living in LA. It's quiet and private and in the hills, yet just minutes away from everything in Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Downtown, the Valley, and the beach.
This house has a story, and it has been suggested that I write a book about it. The story is that it is located in a legendary area of LA, where legends of Hollywood lived in years past and present live to get away from the city but still live within an easy drive. The house for me was a personal achievement, representing the attainment of the American dream, owning the proverbial dream house in the hills of LA, not just any hills, Beverly Hills! 'Swimming pools, movie stars', just like the old TV show. I had an epic task to remodel the house, which is part of the story, along with many good times having owned it. I began to receive requests to rent it in 2007 - first for photo shoots, then events, then short rentals. By 2009 I was getting asked for short vacation rentals back-to back, so I decided to make it available full time for rentals, due to popular demand.
First, there's a 'Wow factor' when you walk in. The sense that it's more fantastic than the pictures. More expansive, spread out over 3 levels built around the main level featuring the all glass indoor outdoor pool access. It's incredibly private and secluded. It has just about everything you need. The heated pool is amazing, it makes you feel like you are on a tropical island, even if its the middle of the winter. The spa is huge and the jets are powerful. The furniture is very cool and there's a lot of it, including modern classics by Eames, Saarinen, Mies Van de Rough, Graves, Frank Gehry, Ligne Roset, Modern Living, Paola Lenti, and many others.
The home features 6 bedrooms plus a loft that can be used as a 7th bedroom. There is an extra queen sized bed available.
Families are welcome. Kids always love this property, it is like a big playhouse to them. There are 2 cribs available plus a playpen on the property. There's a gate for the opening to the lower level.
There is a staff maid, maintenance man, pool man, and gardener who are on call should any problems arise. The owner can be reached at anytime to insure any concerns are handled immediately.
The experience of the guest is of paramount importance, so we take great efforts to prepare the house for your arrival. Maids clean the house before each guest arrives.
The pictures simply don't do this home justice. It had everything you could ever want in a vacation home. Vasts amounts of space, a great outdoor atmosphere and magnificent views from everywhere.
Our family of six spent 6 days here and I'd highly recommend it if your visiting the Beverly Hills/Hollywood area. Large bedrooms, a heated pool and large common areas made this choice a no brainer for our family.
The owner Dan, was a great host answered our questions immediately. 5 Stars!
The villa is just awesome. Nice, large rooms, barbecue and a pool. We stayed 8 days and had to call the owner only once. He answered back in gew minutes and proposed to come over on a Sunday just to make sure everything was fine.
To top that, even though the villa feels like to be in a remote place you're actually 5mn away from every commodités.
Great stay, great owner and great villa.
This property is 100% worth it. We used the property for a business trip and had a wonderful experience. Dan is amazing and responds to your requests within minutes. We also called the housekeeper to come over during our visit and she was extremely friendly and helpful. The house is just as gorgeous as the pictures. There is plenty of space and privacy for all different types of groups. Location is amazing and right off of Molhulland Drive, you feel like you are one of the stars. The pool and lounge area is great to relax and enjoy the Southern California sun. There is plenty of space outside and would be perfect for a trip to enjoy the outdoors. Couldn't recommend a better place!
The property's layout delivers a "wow" from the moment you step in the door. The common areas are pristine and great for socializing or just relaxing. The entire house -- including its many immaculate bedrooms -- have a clean, modern vibe. Tough to beat the views from various balconies and the heated pool and hot tub. We had a pretty diverse group with us during our stay and everyone raved about their experience which was both highly social yet private thanks to the house's layout. The owner, Dan, was available 24-7 to answer any of our questions and the housekeeping service he facilitated was top-notch and a great value. Can't recommend the property strongly enough and look forward to our next stay. One tip: If you stay with friends, call dibs on the master bedroom, it's amazing.
Not kidding. This is a lucky house with a great open vibe. Perfect for big families who want to be in a central location (if there is such a thing in LA). Dan is the best - super reliable we were able to call him for anything and he responded within seconds. The master bathroom alone is worth the money.
Beautiful, roomy property in a very central and convenient location. Dan, the owner, was very helpful and welcoming. A gorgeous backyard with beautiful morning sun. Plenty of room with a guest house and many bedrooms in the main house. Spacious kitchen and entertaining space. Next time I'm in the LA area, I will be contacting Dan! What an enjoyable property for myself and my three guests. Thanks again Dan!
