Great location at a great price.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed three nights with my girlfriend. You can not beat the location and price of this unit. A 5 minute walk and you are on Hollywood Blvd but the unit is away from all the hustle and bustle of it. We also used Uber and Lyft to get around and because of the great location fares were cheap where we needed to go.

The unit is as pictured, and has everything you need for your stay. Very accommodating little touches such as hand and bar soaps, sewing kit, plenty of towels, a couple of coffee packets, and a welcoming fruit basket with a few other snacks. My girlfriend did mention that the included hair dryer is not quite the best so women with long or thick hair may want to bring their own.

Helen, who is in charge of the rental, was beyond great. Her arrival/confirmation email for your stay had tons of information and suggestions, down to a local doctor and dentist for emergencies. We were allowed to arrive early as there was nobody in the unit the day prior.

We ran into a small problem while we were there but we came away beyond satisfied with the outcome. There was house construction just up the road which promptly started at 7am each day which was not a very nice wake up call. The owner also had somebody finishing up construction on a fence on the property while we were there which was very loud. The owner was either unaware they were going to do work on that part of the fence or unaware there was somebody in the unit. Regardless, we brought these two issues to Helen's attention and were were more than happy with how it was resolved. The owner even knocked on our door to apologize for it personally. It could have ruined our stay but we came away very pleased and humbled. It can be hard to find somebody professional and actually concerned with the experience of their customers, but Helen and the property owner Tom set a great example to strive for.

We would definitely stay here again if we found ourselves in the area. Helen, thank you again for being so understanding.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to write us a review. Sorry about the fence...You were so quiet that Tom didn't know you were there. Glad were we able to resolve the problem to your satisfaction and do hope you will stay with us again in the future. Thanks again for your understanding. All the best, Helen

perfect location! beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, clean, cozy apartment in a beautiful location of Hollywood hills!

It was everything plus more we had hoped for!! Less than a 10 minute walk to Hollywood Blvd. We had a rental car because after LA we were traveling to San Francisco; however, you definitely do not need to rent a car while staying here. (Oh, and they do provide a parking permit which is VERY nice of them!) I was in constant contact with Helen from the time we booked up until our departing time in LA... immediate response via phone and e-mail. When you arrive, there's a very, very helpful binder full of great information for your stay... restaurant recommendations, things to do, things in the area, etc. It really helped us the one night when we felt like ordering out, we used one of the recommendations provided to us.

This was truly a memorable experience full of fun adventures that me and my husband will never forget!!!

Uber Cool

  • 5 of 5

Great location, walk to everything in Hollywood. Everything was super clean and comfortable, and exceeded our expectations. Nice touches abound, with a well stocked kitchen and bath, nice sheets and linens, hi-def TV and DVR. The apartment has all the amenities that you could need. We stayed for 3 nights to enjoy all the sights and entertainment in LA, and we loved the location. Walked to the Hollywood Bowl, Magic Castle, hiked in Runyon Canyon, Lake Hollywood, Griffith Park. Greek Theater is a short drive, downtown is convenient via the metro station at Hollywood and Hyland. Property Manager and owner are very conscientious and accommodating. We'll be back!

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the second half of our honeymoon after spending the first five days in wine country. When we arrived the apartment was clean and welcoming. Parking wasn't an issue, even with events happening nearby at the Hollywood Bowl. The owner Tom, lives next door and was very helpful when we lost our tickets to the taping of a TV show. He reprinted them for us and made sure we had them in time. The fruit and flowers were a great touch and the location is absolutely fabulous. A little rough walking back up the hill when you walk down to Hollywood Blvd, but very close and convenient. The location of the apartment was centrally located so we could get to all of the locations we wanted to visit, and being able to walk to Hollywood Blvd was an added bonus. Public transportation is nearby, so even if we wouldn't have had a car we would have been good. Great stay and we will definitely be back!!!

Owners are the nicest people!

  • 5 of 5

The condo itself sits tucked away in a residential sector but just steps away from all the touristy attractions as well as beautiful Runyon Canyon. With a car you are no more than 20 minutes away from all the great spots in LA. The apartment has very easy parking and is fully loaded with just about everything you will need; including some yummy snacks that are provided free of charge! The owners, Tom and David are absolutely amazing people! My girlfriend and I stayed in their home over the weekend for my 30th birthday. It was the first time in LA for the both of us and I proposed during our vacation. On the day of our engagement, Tom and David were nice enough to head up to Runyon Canyon at 8am before we arrived so they could record the precious moment for us. It honestly means so much to us that they were able to capture that clip of us and we are forever indebted! Besides that they were very helpful with any and all questions we had about LA and were very easily accessible. This will always be our place to stay when we are in LA and we HIGHLY recommend it to any vacationers that want to stay in Hollywood!
