Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This is the perfect place to enjoy all that Hollywood has to offer. Walking distance to Hollywood and Highland, Mann Chinese Theater, Hollywood Walk of Fame, The Cinerama Dome, Amoeba Music, tons of restaurants, bars and nightclubs - there is literally no chance you will ever be bored in this neighborhood.

The apartment is gigantic - over 850 square feet. There is a ton of room for everything with two closets, shelves and drawers for all your stuff. There are lots of areas to relax and enjoy. First of all the private balcony gives you a birds eye view of the neighborhood and the lush garden below.

There are two "bed rooms" with a closing door - as if you're entering a deluxe hotel suite with a separate second bedroom. They are both connected to the private outdoor patio - a great space to people watch or enjoy a morning cup of fresh coffee.

The kitchen has a large breakfast nook and vintage stove. Pots, pans, silverware, a toaster, microwave, coffee pot, kettle, everything you need to prepare basic meals if you enjoy cooking - although there are numerous restaurants to suit every budget within walking distance and many of them deliver as well.

It's clean, it's comfortable, it's safe, it's fun, and it's in a great location.

About Alexander McDonald

I work in entertainment cutting commercials for television shows and movies.

Alexander McDonald purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Alexander McDonald chose Los Angeles County

The neighborhood is the big draw. It's walking distance to so many great places and our corner is very friendly and the neighbors are great.

The history of the property is interesting as well. I am only the third owner since 1915 when the main house was built. It was one of the first in the neighborhood. A Greek family bought it in the 70s and the father was the one who established the community garden across the street. Apparently he used to go across the street and gather ingredients while he was cooking. Neighbors come by and tell stories about him - I guess he was a bit of a character.

When I was looking at it it just felt like the kind of place I'd want my son to grow up and invite my friends and family to come over and enjoy.

What makes this apartment unique

Fantastic neighborhood, central location to visit LA, excellent value, walk to restaurants and all that Hollywood has to offer

Great Temporary Home

  • 4 of 5

Overall our experience was great! We got in without a hitch, the air conditioning worked and cooled the apt down promptly. Upon our first sweep of the residence, we had to kill the largest roach I had ever seen lol Thankfully he was alone :) This prompted us to clean the closet he scurried from. A lot of cobwebs but after that everyone was pretty comfortable. The dwelling was properly stocked with towels, clean blankets and sheets, dishes, etc.- all that was mentioned in the listing was there. It was quiet and the bed was great! This place is awesomely (making up a word perhaps) situated in an ideal spot for people wanting to venture around Hollywood. I would definitely consider staying here again 😊?

Great Location, Secure, Homey

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4 nights in June 2017 and loved it! It was myself and my teen daughter and there was ample space. The main bed was too soft for me on the first night so I moved into the sun room which was nice and firm! My daughter preferred the softer bed and I was pleased that there were options for us both. We did not use the TV or any other electronics so I am unsure about the function of them. Alex was very quick to respond to any questions. I loved the balcony/patio, I think it was my favorite perk. It is a busy street so if looking for quiet I would not recommend. I loved being right in the heart of Hollywood. Minutes away from anything you could want or need. VERY CLEAN! I Loved the bedding too!

Great location, tons of space, very attentive owner.

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived, the property had not been cleaned since the previous occupant. I called Alex and he answered right away and gave us the name of a great restaraunt to have dinner while the property was cleaned. When we returned, the DVD player was not there and once again Alex remedied the problem in minutes. Two minor setbacks that were fixed instantly. We will definitely stay here again. Close to everything Hollywood/Universal Studios. The large balcony was perfect for coffee in the morning and drinks at night.
