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

Our family loved our stay in this three bedroom apartment. We stayed for a week and chose not to rent a car. Location is excellent. Its close to The Grove, restaurants and public transport. We caught the local bus to Hollywood, Downtown, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica and never had to walk more than a few blocks. Supermarkets are also within walking distance. The apartment is clean and very well appointed in terms of appliances and supplies. Guest are encouraged to maintain the excellent standard of cleanliness to ensure the same comfort for incoming guests, so expect to do a light tidy up on checkout. Our hostess was very friendly and thoughtfully provided us with lots of local knowledge. We loved our stay and hope to return.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, clean apartment. We found it to be very comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen is spacious with everything we needed - it's very nice. The beds are comfortable with quality sheets and pillows.

A short walk away is the The Grove shopping center with many shops - we also liked the whole foods supermarket nearby. There are restaurants and cafes around the corner which we used. The La Brea tar pits and LA County Museum of Art are also a short walk away.

If returning to LA, I would be pleased to stay here again. Thanks Sharlotte.

Fantastic venue for family catch ups

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was amazing. Beautifully set up with everything you could possibly need. The folder with all the local information and restaurant recommendations was fantastic. Sharlotte was great with all her communication and popped in to check we were ok and give us some Halloween tips. This is a wonderful place to stay.

The Best Location! This home made our time in LA unforgettable!

  • 5 of 5

This property really is in the best location!!! It's just a short stroll to Ralphs (a huge supermarket that has everything you could want/need), CVS pharmacy, and The Grove (various restaurants, shopping and a movie theater). There were three of us travelling from Australia, we found the home to be very spacious and clean and it had everything we needed. The home has a luxurious feel about it and is in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. We stayed for 7 nights and didn't hire a car but used Uber to get around (Santa Monica, Universal Studios, Rodeo Drive, Warner Bros Studio, Staples Center) it was very reliable and affordable. Sharlotte was great to deal with and she was there if we needed her. We would love to stay here again (we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else!!!) Thank You Sharlotte!!!

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 Theater to see the hand prints 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.
