About the property

Bright Airy 1BR with Free Access to Taping Studio for Self-Tape Auditions

Looking for a charming, safe place to call "home" while you are in Los Angeles chasing your dream? Look no further! Most of our tenants are actors (or parents of child actors) who are auditioning and training in LA for Pilot Season (Jan -Apr) and Episodic Season (Aug - Nov). We have a three (3) month minimum stay during those important, professional periods, but you may select your specific arrival and departure dates.

We also have a Taping Studio set up for our tenants which can be used - free of charge - for self-taping auditions. Background, studio lights, camera/smart phone stand, and mic hook ups are already set up and available for your use, and we're happy to instruct you on how to operate them.

Fully furnished 600± sq.ft. 1BR apartment in a single-level duplex located in the highly desirable and most sought after location of the Burbank Hills.

Light and airy, quaint, single-level units with:

• Charming Original Hardwood Floors & Tile with many updates for your comfort

• Central Air & Heat

• Eat-In Kitchen w/ Stove, Oven, Microwave & full size Refrigerator

• High Definition Cable TV service with 300+ Channels & DVR

• Flat Screen TV & DVD Player

• High-Speed Wireless Broadband Internet

• Washer & Dryer – no lugging clothes to laundromat for you!

• All Linens and Housewares

• New Pillow-Top Miralux Queen Size Bed

• Reserved Off-Street Parking on Premises

• Patio area and backyard for sun lounging

(Furnishings subject to change due to damage, breakage, and other unforeseen incidences, but would be replaced with comparable items.)

You also get the coolest (at least WE think so) landlords and their English bulldog sons (rescues, of course), Frank & Jimmy, and we are always accessible for any needs you may have. We know LA well, are in the entertainment business ourselves, and can help turn you on to all the great restaurants, shopping and attractions in our area.

We are located in the Heart of Downtown Burbank near Disney Studios, Burbank (NBC) Studios, Warner Brothers Studios and Ranch, Nickelodeon Studios, Los Angeles Equestrian Center and so much more. We are only three blocks from the Media Center Mall and everything San Fernando Blvd. has to offer – Farmers market, boutique shops, Ikea, restaurants, comedy clubs, AMC Theatres and so much more. Everything you need is literally within walking distance!!!

We are one block from Public Transportation, but if you prefer to drive, the apartment is very accessible to the 134 and 5 freeways which offer you easy access to downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Hollywood, Venice, Disneyland, Universal Studios, etc. We are 15 minutes to Hollywood, N. Hollywood, Studio City and Pasadena, 25 minutes to Downtown LA, 35 minutes to the Beach! You won't find a better location in a safer neighborhood!

About TJ

For many years, we lived in Burbank at the property you are considering. We are in the Real Estate and Entertainment business. We now live only 6 blocks away (still in Burbank, of course!), and as such, we will be accessible to you during your stay for any questions or concerns you may have … or just to chat and give you advice on things you'd like to see or places you like to go. We are extremely positive people who love life and have healthy senses of humor. We’d love to meet you and be of service to you in making your stay as enjoyable as possible. We bought the property in 1998. It is our baby. The duplex was built in the mid-1950s, and although we have kept the original hardwood floors and the original tile, many features in the apartment have been updated while still respecting the building’s 'quaint' appeal. It doesn't feel like a hotel; it feels like a home.

TJ purchased this apartment in 1998

Why TJ chose San Fernando Valley

Well, we are biased; we just love Burbank! It is it's own 'little city' within Los Angeles County – clean, comfortable, safe, accommodating, and centrally located to studios, casting offices, and post-production services within the entertainment industry. If our Los Angeles traffic intimidates you, take UBER to your appointments but enjoy a healthy lifestyle on foot in our neighborhood. Your apartment is within walking distance to anything you might need to make your stay in Burbank comfortable and enjoyable: restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and services.

What makes this apartment unique

Washer & Dryer inside apartment…no going to a laundromat for you! Self-tape audition studio free for our tenants to use, equipped with grey backdrop, studio lights, camera stand, and mic set-up.

Great location; private & quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting houses in the Burbank area for the past two years while we are caring for an elderly relative. This was one of the best. The location is great for walking, access to shops, etc. The house was clean and neat. The outdoor space was nice for relaxing in the early mornings and evenings, as well as for playing with the neighbor's dogs. Although only half a block from a busy road, it was very quiet. An unexpected benefit was a DVR that allowed us to record our usual shows. Our only issue was the living room furniture which was too low for both my husband and myself (who are both over 60 with bad backs and knees). However, when we asked the owner, she brought in a more comfortable chair for my husband.

We hope to be able to stay here again in the future. Thanks, TJ.

amazing accomodations at TJs Apartment

  • 5 of 5

TJs apartment is exactly what I was looking for in a place to call a home away from home. It is very private, quiet and has all the comforts of home. Plus it close to downtown Burbank. Everything I needed and wanted was at the apartment and TJ was always available if I needed anything. Also i liked that fact that we had convenient off street parking and our own little back yard. This apartment is fantastic and I would highly recommend it. I would give this apartment six stars!

Excllent well-located unit with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a month at the property – for the third year in a row. Once again, everything went well. This is a pleasant, fully equipped small apartment-sized cottage, with excellent privacy. There is living room, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen with a dinette area. It has a TV with cable, a DVR, a DVD player and high-speed wireless internet. There is even an in-unit full sized washer & dryer. The unit has a small but pleasant back yard and reserved, off-street parking just a few steps from the door.

The owners are friendly and interesting people, who live nearby. They will come, in just a few minutes, to take care of any problem – but we never had a problem.

The unit is conveniently located. There is a major shopping mall just a couple of blocks away. Also in easy walking distance is a street with a wide variety of eating places, ranging from upscale restaurants to fast food.

We really love this place, and hope to keep coming back.

The apartment was cozy and comfortable. The bed was great, not too firm, not too soft - and lots of extra pillows. Everything was clean and welcoming. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans and utensils. The little back yard was so cute! And walking distance from a lot of restaurants and entertainment. Loved it! This is where we will stay the next time we're in Burbank, for sure!

5+ stars ****** Your every need is taken care of with this amazing apartment in Burbank

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visit the USA each year from Australia and our stay at Tonja & Sam's apartment in Burbank this year will be our 6th time staying at this property and will certainly not be our last. From the very first time we stayed at this adorable apartment to this time around, we have been nothing but amazed at the level of cleanliness and provision of everything you could want for when on vacation. From the moment you step in to the apartment, you discover the warm and comfortable furnishings which make you feel right at home during your stay. The apartment has cable TV for those cosy nights in watching movies and free Wi-Fi which always makes life easier when away from home. The apartment provides loads of spare linen and bedding which is very helpful. There are also plenty of kitchen utensils for cooking in the apartment when you don't feel like eating out. For those times that you do venture out, the apartment is within walking distance to everything you could need. There are grocery stores, shopping malls and lots of restaurants / cafes all within a short walk from the apartment. The apartment is in the perfect location situated within walking distance to everything but far enough away from the hustle of the main streets to make you feel like you are in the hills. The apartment is also super close to the freeway entrance for those with a car.

In summary, we think this apartment is just wonderful and we are proud to call it our "Home Away From Home" which we will do for many more years to come.

P.S. Make sure when booking this apartment, you request a special meet and greet with the apartment mascots Frank & Jimmy, as they are sure to put a smile on your face.

Lovely and cozy flat for two!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, convenient, cozy and well-appointed one bedroom flat with everything you need at your fingertips. Off-street parking is a real plus. Convenient to many restaurants and shopping. Easy to get around all of LA from this Burbank location. Would definitely stay there again if we go back out to California. Owners were great. This is a winner property!
