About Frances

I am an European Journalist who has been covering Hollywood for over 30 years. My life and privilege has been to interview and learn from every major Hollywood talent: their dreams, ups and downs, successes and failures... I have been visited by Catherine Zeta-Jones to Arnold Schwarzenegger to Will Ferrell just to name a few. The property has been used for fashion shots and as a movie location. For me Los Angeles means sunshine, blue wide-open sky, diversity of people, natural wonders, individuality, unimaginable cuisine and 'The sky's the limit' attitude. What I love about my property is the location: far away and yet so close to the hustle and bustle of Hollywood... from here you can quickly be anywhere the action is in minutes...or just enjoying a serene day on top of the world.

Frances purchased this house in 1975

Why Frances chose Hollywood Hills

As soon as I came to Los Angeles my dream was to live on Mulholland Drive, which is for me as historic as a cathedral would be in a town in Europe. MULHOLLAND DRIVE is a painting by David Hockney. KING OF THE MOUNTAIN was a fictional movie with Dennis Hopper, Harry Hamlin and Dan Haggerty loosely based on actual Mulholland Drive racers. The films MULHOLLAND DRIVE and MULHOLLAND FALLS were named after the road. Video games GRAND THEFT AUTO and MIDNIGHT CLUB features Mulholland Drive. R.E.M.'s song ELECTROLITE was inspired by Mulholland Drive and is mentioned. TOM PETTY refers to 'glide down over Mulholland' in the hit song 'FREE FALLIN'. In LOVE AND BASKETBALL Mulholland Drive is referred to during the scene in which Q and Monica meet up outside of her bedroom after the Spring Dance. It marks the street as a dead end where couples go for privacy.

Wonderful stay in the Hollywood Hills!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent an extra long weekend in this lovely home in Hollywood Hills. It is even more spacious than it looks in the pictures, and the bedrooms are so quiet. The beds & linens are of the highest quality and we found everything so comfortable. The views from all sides are fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the garden taking in the wonderful weather and beautiful sights, right outside our door.

The location is perfect for all activities in this area. We could be on Sunset Blvd, Hollywood Blvd, or Beverly Hills within minutes. Hiking in Runyon Canyon is just around the corner. This home is located amidst all the stars' homes and it was so exciting trying to spot a few. I highly recommend this for any group of two or four people. We were with another couple and the way the bedrooms are situated, you would never even know there was anyone else in the house! We were fortunate to briefly meet the owner, Frances, who is so lovely. You will love staying here!

Private/Clean/Well-located

  • 5 of 5

Was there with 3 friends for a couple of days for the Coldplay Concert. Slept 4 people comfortably. Lots of light and the decor was fresh and well-put together and very clean. I'm very picky about good linens and the bedsheets were good 2 go. Kitchen has everything you need. Its a very private area in the Hollywood Hills and Runyan Park only a 5 minute walk away. NO COMPLAINTS. Make sure you pay attention to the checkout time (10 am). I didn't, and we had to rush out, which was the only inconvenience. Fleetwood from Dallas.

Most beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent visitors to LA and also lived there for a number of years in various areas. However, it was our first stay in the Hollywood Hills and we absolutely loved this place and the location. It was quiet and peaceful and nonetheless close enough to many major attractions. This time we came with a friend with whom we went to Venice, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Downtown, Silverlake, East LA. In addition we especially enjoyed walking our dog in the neighborhood and the nearby canyon. The house is equipped with all you need, it is super clean and has lots of entertainment options in terms of books and movies.

It was super easy to communicate with Frances, the neighbors were very friendly and at the same time we had all the privacy we needed.

We would definitely come back any time.
