About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, 1 loft w/ beds, Sleeps 8, Heart of Hollywood

You'll feel right at home as soon as you walk into our property. We accommodate small or large groups, and can sleep up to 8 people in beds. Our convenient, urban location and private, gated property offer the perfect combination for travelers.


We are located at the foot of the Hollywood Hills in the popular neighborhood Franklin Village, just minutes from Hollywood Blvd, the Walk of Fame, Universal Studios, and the LA Zoo. Griffith Park, with over 4,000 acres of trails and activities, is only a few blocks away. We are close to bus lines, and LA Metro public transportation. Our walk-able neighborhood is full of shops, coffee spots, restaurants and groceries.


The house is located on a small, gated lot at the edge of the more urban section of Hollywood, so there is the potential for street and sidewalk traffic and urban noise. We have a driveway for two cars or one large SUV or truck. Our outdoor space includes a small side patio and a rooftop deck.

The main living space is on the first floor and includes 3 bedrooms, (2 queen beds, 1 Full bed), 2 bathrooms, living room and kitchen.

Our upstairs loft space includes a sleeping area (2 twin beds), rooftop deck, and ½ bath. Kids and teenagers love this space! Please note that the stairway to this loft is steep, and may not be appropriate for the very young or elderly.


Laundry facilities, ironing board/iron, dish washer, microwave, full kitchen, Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs, Roku digital media players, cable, home phone, portable crib, high chair, keyless entry, gated property, driveway with parking, patio, rooftop deck.


If you love to travel with your pets like we do, they are welcome here. Downstairs is all hardwood floors and the property is surrounded by ficus trees and fencing for both privacy and to keep doggies safe. We can supply you with a pet bed and food & water bowls. We do not charge a pet fee; we only add a small amount to your security deposit.

Our neighborhood has everything you'll want for your stay, within a couple of blocks. You don't need a car to go to the convenience store, grocery store, coffee shops, doughnut shops, bookstores and restaurants. Our favorite is Cafe 101, an American diner, just a three-block walk from us. We are in the heart of Hollywood... a great central location.

Please contact us with any questions you may have!

About Stephanie

I am a California native who lived in Los Angeles for 10 years. After relocating to Denver, CO, my husband and I decided to rent out our home to travelers. Our goal is to provide a warm and welcoming place to stay for vacationers and business travelers visiting the LA area. We are pet friendly and we are available to give advice on your stay in Hollywood.

Stephanie purchased this house in 2004

Why Stephanie chose Hollywood

We originally purchased this property because of its central location. It is just 20 minutes from Downtown, and less than 10 minutes from Hollywood Blvd, and Universal Studios. The neighborhood is called Franklin Village, and there are plenty of restaurants, groceries, and coffee shops located with walking distance.

What makes this house unique

Our property is great for larger groups or families traveling together, since we sleep 8 people in beds. Teenagers love our loft area, and everyone loves our rooftop deck with view of the Hollywood Hills. The property is centrally located, making it a convenient place to stay for tourists. We have a keyless entry system, so guests can arrive at their own convenience without having to meet anyone at the property. We also provide a PDF travel guide to all of our guests. It is full of reviews on local restaurants, attractions, and things to do in LA. It also includes driving directions to airports and Disneyland. Our gated lot and driveway add privacy and convenience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was amazing! Perfect location! It really felt like we were at home. It is kind of on a busy street but you wouldn't know it. It's relatively quiet and it's secure. We celebrated my son's birthday in the house and it was great to have a grocery store so close to pick up supplies. It was also a great location for our trip to Universal Studios. I had to contact Stephanie a couple times with questions and she got back to me quickly. I absolutely recommend this home!

Nice place, great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay during a quick work trip to LA. While the house is close to a major road we found the stay quiet and peaceful. I would definitely recommend and look forward to staying again.

Just the right size for our group of 7. A little noises but all in all everything was ok. Very close to everything we wanted to tour. Enjoyed the stay very much. West coast quiet different than the East coast

Great time!

  • 4 of 5

We had a relaxing and comfortable stay. Our grandchildren had a fabulous time in the second floor bedroom and play area - which they thought was a special treat. The house was fully outfitted and the managers were very responsive.

This was the perfect location for our little group to stay during our short visit to LA. The house was comfortable and well equipped. We only ended up using half of the house, but it was nice to have all that space!

Great accommodation in a good location. We had a fantastic time

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in West Hollywood. The home was a great place with all the necessities, had a few small problems which the owner corrected ASAP.

Had a problem with the smoke alarm, every time we used the stove or put bread in the toaster the alarm went off apart from that a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the smoke alarm, this happens every few years when the battery starts dying! Glad you had a good time otherwise.

Stunning! A hidden oasis!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for five nights and six days and had a blast. Our three young boys really enjoyed hanging out in the loft area which granted them space for toys, reading and coloring while my wife and I relaxed in the living room and rooftop deck. This home had plenty of character along with modern amenities. And having a gated, private parking spot was a plus! The location is blocks from major retailers for both food and clothing as well as minutes from The Griffith Observatory, Universal Studios and the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

I highly recommend staying here and we will do so with our next trip to SoCal.

Wherever my family and I travel we look for places like this which allow the freedom, space and access needed to feel at home while on vacation.

Owner's Response: We love to hear when kids and teens use our loft space. It's a fun area up there that they can call all their own!
