Los Angeles Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home Walking Distance To The Grove!

We are a 100% non-smoking property inside and out (including balconies and yards). If anyone in your group smokes, we are not the right property for you.

We require a 5 night minimum for stays with possible exceptions at owner's discretion (that's why the listing says 2 nights - for exceptions only!). Shorter stays will be subject to additional charges if exceptions are made. We appreciate your understanding.

Our lower unit is also available for bookings and has the same layout. Property ID on HomeAway is 3526702 and on VRBO is 3526702HA.

This beautifully renovated spacious 1600 square foot apartment is the upper unit of a small historic 1936 apartment building just a few blocks west of The Grove shopping center and the Original Farmer's Market.

The area is a designated historic district and our building maintains all the beauty and history of the neighborhood while boasting all the comforts of modern living.

Hardwood floors throughout the unit give warmth and the feeling of home to the unit. Double paned windows with low-e glass provide both conservation of energy and even more quiet inside from our quiet outside neighborhood.

The unit has been newly renovated and includes a brand new kitchen, central heat & air, and is immaculately clean. Two balconies give you some private outdoor space all your own and there is even a lemon tree shared by the other 2 units in the building.

1 bedroom features a large eastern king size beds, 1 bedroom features a queen size bed and the 3rd bedroom features 2 double beds. Each bed has crisp white linens, accent colored warm blankets, extra pillows and a quilt for those cooler nights. There is plenty of closet space for travelers as well and flat screen televisions in each bedroom. Both blinds and curtains in the bedrooms allow travelers to choose the amount of light they want to wake up to. Each bedroom also has an overhead ceiling fan to help circulate air on our cool Los Angeles nights. An ipod, iphone dock and charger on the clock radio will charge your phone. Sounds of nature are also available on this clock to lull you to sleep. Each bedroom closet holds two warm terry bathrobes for your lounging comfort.

The kitchen has all full sized appliances including stainless steel refrigerator/ freezer with through the door filtered ice & water, range and over the range microwave and full 24' dishwasher and a double bowled farmhouse sink with garbage disposal. Quartz countertops add elegance to the kitchen design and are extremely durable. The kitchen is well appointed with service for 8, cookware, and more. You can easily cook a full gourmet meal in this kitchen or just as easily heat up your leftovers from the night before out on the town. Hand soap, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, newly wrapped sponge and a jumbo roll of paper towels are provided as well free of charge.

The master bathroom boasts a separate tub and shower sink and vanity with plenty of storage space and commode. The second, smaller bathroom has a shower, one sink and commode. Plenty of white fluffy towels are provided as well. A starter pack of shampoo, conditioner and bath gel is provided in each bathroom as well as 3 rolls of toilet tissue and one box of kleenex. Hair dryer is also provided.

A washer and dryer in the unit make it easy to bring less clothes and go home with them clean. Laundry detergent and dryer sheets are provided.

A decorative fireplace in the living room and wedding cake crown mouldings, and original wainscotting and bookshelves in the dining room add character and history to this wonderful home.

Each of the 4 televisions feature basic cable and roku boxes with Crackle, Netflix and HBO so you can relax, watch tv or a film. High speed free internet service via wifi is available throughout the unit. A printer is available as well to print out your boarding passes or any other business needs you have.

Amenities for the little ones are available upon request. Including a pack n play, stroller, and high chair.

Please enjoy the suggestions for things to do, places to eat & shop and sights to see as well as the history of our neighborhood in our 'guest book'. Instructions for smart tvs, printer, internet passcode and more are all included in this book.

Please check out our other listings as well.

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.

Sharlotte Blake purchased this apartment in 2001

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.

Extremely clean and well kept up

  • 4 of 5

The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the parking is very difficult. But the property itself was very clean and well taken care of.

Charming home with emaculate attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful. We loved being in the upstairs unit. Sleeping with windows open at night was great. Walking distance to the Grove and Farmer's Market provided numerous options for shopping and meals. The neighborhood was filled with cute homes with varying landscape and design which we enjoyed during many a walk to stretch our legs while others napped. Four of us, and three bedrooms gave us ample privacy. One friend was binge watching Netflix while others watched the news elsewhere. The owner meet us shortly after our arrival and gave us numerous tips on getting around, or just how far things were from each other on our "to see" list. Her suggestion to use Lyft was helpful for evening events and getting around.

All of us in our group have stayed in other VRBO, or Air B-N-B units, and having the owner living on-site makes a difference. She really knows her guests and does her best to accommodate their needs. The furnishings were comfortable and very clean. High quality linen could be felt when I slipped into bed at night, and yes we used the bathrobes. The wood floors, vintage style tile in the bathrooms, crown molding in ceilings, all very well maintained. I'd stay here again.

Yes we could hear sirens and people drive too fast, but that's L.A. isn't it?

Very nice, spacious home.

  • 5 of 5

My family of six enjoyed staying in this home. It is within walking distance to the Farmers Market and shopping mall. The apartment was clean, spacious and nicely decorated. Sharlotte was very helpful during the booking process. We would most definitely stay here again if were to visit LA again.

Fabulous Home Close to All the LA Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 - mom, dad and 2 teenagers, stayed at Sharlotte's place for Spring Break 2016. We had the best time. Lovely neighborhood that is within walking distance to fantastic restaurants and shopping. We did all the "touristy" things and also did a couple of college visits and the location was great. We had an internet issue which...when you have teenagers is a 911 type situation...and Sharlotte did everything to get it fixed quickly. The home is clean and spacious and had everything we needed. We would absolutely stay here again when we come back to California. I highly recommend this home!

Excellent.Clean and very well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family enjoyed staying at the apartment. It was great to spread out and enjoy being in a comfortable space after staying in hotels. Sharlotte was very friendly and helpful and easy to deal with. We loved the fact that we could walk most places and enjoyed being in a lovely neighbourhood. The apartment has everything needed for a family including a super washing machine and fridge etc

Highly recommended.

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.
