Why the Owner Chose Hollywood: We fell in love with the Hollywood Hills back in the mid 90s and decided to buy an old Hollywood Home built in the 1930s this year. It's a magical place with stunning views, including the Hollywood sign and it's like our own private retreat with a small bamboo forest outside our bedroom window. We both have always loved old Spanish style houses and this one exudes charm.

Why Debbie chose Los Angeles County

Guestbook comments from the owner

July 18, 2011



Thanks Debbie for a wonderful stay at Casa Colinas. The house was perfect for our family of five, including three teens who enjoyed the view as much as we did. We found everything we needed and the privacy was a treat after long days in town. We hope to visit LA again and will certainly make Casa Colinas our first priority for hospitality! Thanks for everything.

Exceptional experience!

  • 5 of 5

The property really is an exceptional one in the Hollywood Hills and the owners are incredibly nice and generous. It made us feel like we were experiencing the romantic, old Hollywood of Eddie Albert. All the photos match the actual house and views. We came with our three boys to vacation and look at colleges. The accommodations were perfect for us. We took advantage of the location right next to Universal and restaurants options suggested by our hosts. We would definitely stay there again!

We are already planning to return!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently with our sons during their college breaks. The four of us LOVED it here! In the morning we had our coffee leisurely on the terrace; it was so relaxing that it was hard to get out the door. On our last night, we had our farewell dinner outside. The views are outstanding. Debbie's place is meticulous and roomy. Runyon Canyon is a short hike away through lovely neighborhoods. My husband and I are already planning a return trip - perhaps to compete in the LA Marathon!

Peace Above the Fray

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our time in this peaceful home with phenomenal views! Loved seeing all the lights at night and waking up and having coffee on the deck. Within walking distance to Runyon Canyon Park, which was a highlight of our stay and Universal Studios is a short distance away. Highly recommend.

Thanks Debbie for sharing your home!
