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.

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.

It's a beautiful property which overlooks the Hollywood Hills and has spectacular views.

  • 5 of 5

I love the peaceful surroundings of the location of Casa Colinas which is a strong contrast to the busy streets and hustle and bustle of LA. I loved the decor and furnishings inside the home, but the outside with the multi level patios and spectacular views is what makes this a stunning property.

Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable, clean and has everything you need during your stay. The view from the deck is absolutely fantastic, that's where we spend every night enjoying the view and relaxing. Both bedrooms are spacious and beds are very comfortable. Gardens around are very well maintained.

I would highly recommend it - thank you, Debbie!

Can't beat this opportunity!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 claim this home to be one of the greatest highlights during our trip to the west coast! From INCREDIBLE view from the terrace and abundance of villa charm to the cozy but breathtaking atmosphere, we found this to be the perfect place to rest our minds and bodies while in the hustle and bustle of L.A. Debbie was very easy to work with and the home is perfectly supplied for your needs. You really do feel like a star! Thank you! Thank you!

More Than I Could Hope For

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! It is tucked away and very peaceful at night (and day). I thought it was a perfect escape from the busy city below. Everything inside was perfectly put together, and as pretty as it was, the house was very well thought out and very functional. This would be a great place for an extended stay! Now, to my favorite part, THE VIEW! Every single night, I made time to stand outside and admire the little slice of heaven! It was beautiful. The twinkling lights below were so relaxing to watch. The house's patio is something I'll covet. :). Debbie was a gracious host, and I am EXTREMELY thankful for her directions to avoid the Hollywood Bowl Traffic, as well as a very detailed description of the house and attractions/ necessities near by. We were sad to leave. But reality was calling. :). I highly recommend staying here. It's a great place and a 10 Million Dollar View. Thank you, Debbie. You have quite an amazing and cozy place! We loved it.

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The views exceeded our expectations. The home was beautiful and well maintained. The location was excellent, close to Hollywood, LA, Universal Studios and Burbank. Back to the views...coffee in the morning and wine in the evening on the patio...what a great way to start and end the day. I hope to be able to go back. The owner Debbie was such a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this home to anyone going to CA.
