About Sharlotte Blake

I am originally from the East Coast via Philadelphia & New York and settled in Los Angeles in 1999. I met my husband, originally from LA, in Los Angeles and we have a young son. I have worked in Entertainment for much of my adult life in both Music and Film. I also love design and real estate and owning Vacation Rentals has been a wonderful experience for me.

Why Sharlotte Blake chose Los Angeles

We bought this property in 2001 after living in the neighborhood for years. We lovingly renovated and restored it to its 1936 grandeur and added all the conveniences of modern living.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of this property cannot be beat. We are truly in the heart of everything yet still in a quiet residential neighborhood. You can walk to a lot but come home to the peaceful tree-lined street where neighbors walk their kids and dogs and chat with each other as locals do.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to express our thanks for letting us use your accomodations -- it is in a beautiful locale! Thank you as well for going the extra mile and sending back the swimsuits we left behind...we will certainly give you a shout when we return again (hopefully next year).

Best L.A. vacation ever !

  • 5 of 5

This property turned up to be a very pleasant surprise. The location is excellent, very close to the grove mall (which my kids love) and all the other perks L.A. has to offer. The neighborhood was very safe and quiet and the check in process was a breeze.

The unit itself was spacious and very clean when we arrived and Sharlotte (the landlord) was very friendly and easy to reach.

We spent 4 weeks there and my kids loved it, I would definitely recommend this property and stay there again in my future visits.

Great place for a family

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay while we were there. There was a group of 8 of us and we fit very comfortably. Keep in mind the fee for having an extra person (max 6 without extra fee, total max guests of 8) is $30/night per extra guest. It is a really spacious place and I loved the tall ceilings. The sheets were so incredibly comfortable and soft (and the reason you pay a significant fee to cover any stains). She left out ghiradelli chocolates in the kitchen which I felt was a nice touch. There is essentially only netflix for entertainment and cable would have been nice. We missed a few programs we were hoping to see in the evenings before bed. Also the only reason this place did not get 5 stars is my interactions with Sharlotte. From the first phone call she seemed rude and inpatient. Im a busy ER doc in Chicago and had not yet had a moment to send her photos of all our IDs so she called and when I asked "how are you?", she replied "well.. I'm OK but I haven't received your paperwork yet", in a very snarky, rude tone of voice. My email communication with her was not much better, and she sends quick short replies and would shorten you to "u" and other little things that seemed very unprofessional. She lives in the back apartment so I was really worried prior to the trip that she could potentially make this trip awkward, but luckily we had no interactions with her while we were there. Just a reminder to treat your paying customers with some courtesy and respect!

Owner's Response: I'm very happy that Samantha and her family had a nice stay in our apartment and appreciated the amenties we provide to our guests. I met her sister and some other family members and they all seemed to really enjoy the property and the location. I'm a little confused by the "netflix only" comment though as 3 of the 4 TVs do have cable on them. There are plaques next to each TV with info on how to access cable as well as Netflix. There were certainly some communication issues with Samantha prior to her arrival, presumably due to her schedule, as she did not respond to much of my initial communication until the week before her arrival and did not want to pay for the additional items she added to the booking at that time. I hope when planning her next trip, she enlists a little help from some of her lovely family to coordinate things so there are no negative feelings towards any future hosts.

Outstanding location and property

  • 5 of 5

This property was immaculately presented and had all the amenities we needed as well as some much appreciated washing powder and dishwashing powder sufficient for our stay. We travelled with our four children, so six in all and there was ample space for us all.

Location! Location! You can enjoy all that LA and Hollywood have to offer minutes away and come 'home' to a quiet residential neighborhood in the heart of it all!

We are centrally located between the San Fernando Valley and the Beach. Only 7 miles from the Film Studios in Burbank (Warner Brothers & Universal) and 10 miles to the beach and the airport in the other direction. We are right around the corner from Paramount Studios as well as CBS Studios.

Located just Southwest of Hollywood and a few blocks from West Hollywood,

A 5 minute drive to the East is the quaint Larchmont Village. A 'local' spot for a fabulous Sunday Farmer's market, many restaurants and great coffee shops & ice cream shops as well as some wonderful local specialty shops.

You are only 2 miles from the Heart of Hollywood. See the sights on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, stop by Grauman's Chinese Theatre to see the handprints of the Stars, The Wax Museum and Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum are always great fun as well.

For shopping and the occasional celebrity spotting take a 5 minute stroll West to The Grove at Farmers Market, only a few blocks away. Next to the Grove is Pan Pacific Park where you can run, relax, and picnic. There are several playgrounds for the kids, and many fields for soccer, baseball & more. The Original Farmer's Market, established in 1934 is nearby at 3rd & Fairfax. It has both fresh produce every day as well as great restaurants of all types, from Parisian crepes to Mexican tacos, to Indonesian fare, Brazilian dishes and more. The whole family can find something they like with the variety at this outdoor market.

A morning hike at nearby Runyan Canyon is a must for the vacationer as is a scenic drive on Mullholland Drive. Lookout points along the drive will give you amazing views you've only seen in the movies of both Los Angeles and 'the Valley'. Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Six Flags at Magic Mountain are all within a 45 minute drive. Universal Studios City Walk & Theme Park are a mere 15 minutes away. You can even take the subway there from Hollywood!

There are many great restaurants at The Grove as well as on Beverly Boulevard and LaBrea that are within walking distance.

If you are interested in sporting events, theater, concerts or other live music events, we are located within 5-15 minutes from the Staples Center & Nokia theatre, Dodger's stadium, the world famous Sunset Strip, the Kodak Theater (home to the Oscar's), the Pantages Theatre, the Wiltern, the El Rey, the Hollywood Palladium and many many more.

We are equidistant from the Bob Hope airport in Burbank and LAX International airport. We are about 10 miles from horseback riding at Griffith Park and 10 miles to the Beaches in the other direction.

Explore the 'non-Hollywood' part of LA too nearby and treat yourself to the rich traditions and cuisines in nearby Thai town, Korea Town, China Town & Little Tokyo.

Los Angeles also boasts a thriving art and cultural community and we are nearby the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art as well as the Geffen at MOCA, the Disney Center, The LA Museum of Natural History, the LA Tar Pits & Paige Museum and the Los Angeles Zoo.

You can't beat our location to explore all LA has to offer without spending your day in the car. We are in the center of it all!
