|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Enjoy the gorgeous views from the deck and three cabanas with an outdoor/ indoor living experience. Luxurious organic comfort California King Bed, with additional sleeping arrangements in the living room of the main house (Two Twin Murphy beds fold out from the wall). Large L couch (very comfortable) as well as Aerobed if needed. You can always add on The Guest Casita #3557926 for another room and bathroom (there is a full lot between the two houses). Sleep under the stars if you are feeling adventurous (cabanas are completely covered, with the netting and canvas).*
Perfect location for Pilot Season Actors.
This is our fourth Laurel Canyon Vacation rental, which shows how much we love the area.
Kristie Holmes purchased this cottage in 2013
We fell in love at first sight. Open house was packed, and no one stayed less than an hour. We competed with four other offers and eventually won out.
Views, Views, Views, and the absolute loveliness and charm...
My daughter and I had a nice time staying here while in LA. Internet worked well and nice to have washing machines on site. Recommend.
My husband and I were in the LA area for a week and chose this as our homebase. The house itself was nice; small, but great for the two of us. Being midwesterners, now living in Florida, driving up and down the hills and canyons took a bit of getting used to. But getting to the house location is just half the battle. Then there is the trip up the staircase to actually get to the house. It's a small workout all on it's own! Now the owner, the information here, and many other reviews all warn about the stairs, so not complaining, just adding to the commentary to be prepared. But it is all worth it! Once you make it to the house, you are greeted with a fabulous view of the canyon and the homes all nestled in its nooks and crannies. If you take the walk that the owner recommends, you can see some neat homes along the way and some more fabulous canyon views. Sitting on the patio every morning, enjoying a cup of coffee and the view was a wonderful way to start the day. Then when you are ready to join the hustle and bustle of LA, you drive down the canyon and are close to everything! I do highly recommend dinner at PACE...a cozy italian restaurant, at the bottom of the canyon, that features locally sourced ingredients in modern italian dishes. Not only was the food phenomenal, but it's a great place for celebrity sightings. The night we went, we saw Ellen and Portia as well as "Howard" and "Bernedette" (from Big Bang Theory). That's the house, location, and surroundings, but I will also add that the owner was fabulous and accommodating. The night of our arrival was a black out, so other than our headlights (for driving) and phone flashlights (for walking the stairs), there were no lights or power once we got to the house. She kept us informed and did her best to ensure we were as comfortable as possible. Thankfully, it didn't last too long. Overall, a great place to get away from the hustle & bustle of the city, while still feeling very much a part of it.
Once you get used to the stairs you'll fall in love with this place like we did. This is a great location with quick, easy access to most of the popular LA attractions PLUS provides amazing peacefulness, great views, history, and a little fun quirkiness thrown in.
Our urban vacation had a nice calmness to it - not easy to do with three teenagers and a total of five of us all sharing one bathroom. It was the house and it's location that provided that to us. The kids could come and go as they pleased, relax on the deck, go for a walk, or take a $4 Uber ride down to Hollywood to see the sights. All in all a fantastic stay and one that we'd like to repeat every time we travel to LA.
Thank you Kristie!
My family of 5 stayed here, kids ages 11 to 17... it was absolutely perfect place to stay. Location cannot be beat, a few mins from Hollywood yet once you drive up in the hills, you would think you are 3 hours out of town. The porch is incredible, huge and unreal views of the canyon. Inside of house is top of the line and Kristie is immediately responsive if you need anything. I'm passing this on to our friends / family, recommending they stay here for sure on their next LA visit. Thanks for the hospitality Kristie. The steps are fine by the way, part of the experience.
Kristie's Casita is a lovely sanctuary in the hills above Hollywood. Once you ascend the stairs (OK there's a lot of them), you're glad you came. With it's Spanish old world charm and romantic view below it is a delightful respite from the busy city. There are deer that come by your door to enhance the contrast of a place that is less than 5 minutes (by car) from the heart of Hollywood as well as the Sunset strip. Kristie is wonderful and is very responsive to anything that came up. The internet speed is pretty good and the living room is comfortable for lounging with a great L shape couch and mounted flatscreen that has Uverse for your entertainment pleasure. The ultra modern washer/dryer behind the casita is also quite convenient. The kitchen is beautiful and functional. Overall it was a pleasure. Highly recommended for a short or long stay. Thanks Kristie!
I was surprised by this home because it's like a Mexican hacienda, but it's in the middle of town. Lots of steps and Spanish tile and a whole outdoor area that's like a separate outside home. My only complaint is I overslept the first day because I was so relaxed lol. Very pretty and secluded and clean. You can't hear neighbors which is surprising since youre in the hills. WAAAAYY better than staying at a crap hotel where you pay $30 for parking and have no room to breathe.
We are near the Chateau Marmot, but offer more, with nicer views for a fraction of the cost (a single small hotel room begins at $435/night). AFI Film Fest, Hollywood & Highland, Laurel Canyon, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, Walk of Fame, the Grove, Film Festival, Conference, Music history
GUEST UNIT ADD ON: $139 or $179 if you are only renting the guest unit. While we would love to include as many people as you can get into the house or cover your family reunion, we can't (and we've learned this by experience). We changed our policy by lowering the rate to a double occupancy rate (industry standard) and additional adults are 20USD/night.* Credit card can be used for Damage Deposit
* Approximate monthly rate. Actual rate will depend on the days of the month you stay.
