About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

This beautiful modern industrial styled two bedroom two bath signature property features a distinctive blend of modern style with period Hollywood movie glamour. A view from the Capitol Records building over the endless sparkling lights of Los Angeles all the way to the ocean is framed by fifty+ linear feet of floor to ceiling sliding glass panels that open up to reveal the view that dreams are made of.

New appliances including the latest refrigerator from LG with built in television and weather info center and computer with gourmet recipe guide, custom lighting including classic Hollywood studio lights customized with color changing LED modules create a theatrical environment where everyday life takes on the magical quality of a movie of your own design. A drenching ceiling mounted rain shower in one bathroom washes away your sins on a daily basis. Currently, there is no outdoor patio for this home, but the living room glass walls slide open, giving the home an outdoor/indoor feeling to the home.

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, Stanley Tucci, just to name a few of the wonderful artist.

Please note: If you are interested in booking last minute (under 2 weeks in advance), please do not send us a BookitNow reservation request. E-mail us directly and we can proceed with a direct booking.

For last minute reservations we will require direct booking through us, with the security deposit on a credit card and the balance of the reservation in cash on arrival. We have unfortunately experienced too many incidents of credit card fraud in these situations. If you have a last minute request, please contact us by email. We encourage you to call and speak directly to the owner, James Wilder, for these types of bookings, to feel comfortable with going outside of the HomeAway/VRBO system. You can search for James Wilder on IMDb and also look up www.TheModernVillas.com. He is well known and has been renting his homes successfully for over 10 years.

About The Owner

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 The Owner 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.

Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this home don't do it justice! The view is spectacular, the decor sleek, and the home cozy with the perfect location! Being tucked away atop the hill makes the home feel secluded from the hustle and bustle of LA but you're still a stones throw away from the heart of it all! Overall a great experience and a wonderful time! I would highly recommend to anyone looking to experience Los Angeles in pure luxury!

Thanks for sharing your home!

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here for a family getaway and fell in love! You can tell the owner put lots of details in the decor! It had a nice little porch to lay out on and enjoy the weather and the 30 ft glass wall made for some amazing views! My son and I spent plenty of time just looking around Hollywood and watching all the airplanes fly above Los Angeles! We loved every minute of our stay and hope to book again! Thanks again Josh for making out vacation so relaxing and worry free!

Luxurious lifestyle to make a perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a beautiful place to call home for a few weeks! My Wife and I stayed for a few weeks and enjoyed every moment in this contemporary masterpiece! We loved the views and how we could enjoy the city breeze by opening the sliding windows! It was very detailed in its decor and very clean! We would definitely stay here again and hope to next time we go back!

Returning Soon!

  • 5 of 5

It's been 6 months since I stayed at the Contemporary Retreat, and as I look forward to my next trip to LA I began looking at places to stay. My memories were so pleasant that I could not imagine staying anywhere else. I spoke with Josh, and he pleasantly helped me through the reservation process. I decided as a return visitor I should finally write this review reflecting how great an experience it was. To top it all off, the owner returned my security deposit immediately, and in full!
