Overview

Los Angeles Apartment Rental Photos and Description

In View Of The Hollywood Sign, Close To Food, Cocktails And Attractions

***** [Check out my other listings #837148 & #83774; I have three units, each similar square footage, amenities, and right next door to one another in the same building (Send me an Inquiry or visit me on FACEBOOK: WILCOX STUDIOS to book directly and avoid the added fees). I do my best to see that you are checked into the unit you booked, but occasionally circumstances require a shift to another unit. (Check in time is 2:00 PM on the first day of the reservation unless otherwise arranged; Check out time is 12:00 Noon on the last day of the reservation)] *****

This is a STUDIO apartment with one queen size bed, located in the heart of Hollywood's Media District, close to West Hollywood, restaurants, shopping, theaters, clubs and all the services you will need.... in a controlled access (keyed entry) courtyard complex with old world Spanish flavor.

This unit has all appliances: Stove, Refrigerator, built in Microwave, Toaster, Coffee Maker, Electric Teapot, as well as A/C, WiFi & LIGHT WEEKLY MAID SERVICE TOO!

It's been updated (granite counters, maple cabinets), but still holds all of the 1920's Spanish style charm.

Parking is street parking, and as I've experienced, other than on street cleaning days (Monday and Tuesday on alternating sides between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM), there is usually a space available close to the building.

The unit also features an on site laundry room, cable television with, plus a CD and DVD player.

You are NOT moving into someone else's place while they are on vacation. This apartment is furnished and set up as a short or long term corporate/executive rental.

Utilities are entirely included.

***In deference to those with sensitivities, this is a No Smoking/No Pets Unit. Smoking is permitted outside the unit, of course***

You really don't want to miss it!

About Herbert

My goal is to assure that your experience with me is a positive one, and I ask only that you treat the property and fellow guests with the respect and consideration you would expect for yourself.

Many of my guests are repeat customers, which is the finest kind of reference! I wear all the hats, i.e., owner, cleaner, handyman, banker, bookkeeper, and customer service representative........my phone is always on and if I'm awake, I answer it!

Herbert purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Herbert chose Los Angeles

The courtyard setting is what gets the most comment for its warm and welcoming attributes. What could be better than enjoying your morning coffee next to the trickling fountain in the dappled sunlight that sneaks through the canopy of trees?

What makes this apartment unique

Walking distance to attractions, restaurants, entertainment.....

Centrally Located

  • 5 of 5

We were able to walk to Sunset Blvd and the Hollywood Walk of Fame from our rental, and quickly hop onto the freeway for other trips (30 minutes from Pasadena and Venice Beach). The studio was clean, secure, and came equipped with a handy guide to the area. We stayed during the week and were always able to park within three blocks. In addition, the owner Herbert was very responsive and helpful. We would definitely recommend!

perfect for the two of us

  • 5 of 5

Herbert was truly accommodating and welcoming. The unit was perfect for my boyfriend and me, we felt right at home. Herbert made it very easy for us during our stay of 3 nights. The studio is centrally located, minutes away from most of the places we went to (Universal Studios, Hollywood Bowl, Koreatown, etc.). Definitely will book here next time we visit LA! Thanks again Herbert.

Owner's Response: The gratifying part of this business is hearing that my guests had a positive experience AND are willing to take time to write about it. This not only allows future guests know what to expect, but also seems to attract genuine and considerate people, like Joanna and friend (Thank You!), to book with me!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Visited LA on vacation, and just fell in love with this place. First, Herbert is amazing. Honest, decent, and so reliable. He responds to all your questions within moments. For example, the first night we arrived, Herbert met us and spoke to us for about 45 minutes, answering all of our questions about the area and restaurants, sights to visit, etc. Then, later than night, when I could not get the TV to work (because I am an idiot) Herbert quickly pointed me in the right direction. On our last night, we had a late night flight out, and Herbert graciously allowed us a late check out, which we really appreciated. As for the apartment itself, it has everything you need and it is in a perfect location. We travelled throughout LA, and the central location of the apartment made it so easy. The neighborhood is safe, and parking is a breeze. I know we will see Herbert again when we visit LA. Thank you for making our trip so enjoyable Herbert!!! I highly recommend this unit to everyone!

Perfect studio perfect location

  • 4 of 5

It's very nice place for great location. Cozy and clean studio.

I definitely come back to this palace again.

Just minor thing was the police siren. I heard that every night once or twice. the police station is one block away.

but still I'd love to come back for my next trip in LA.

Thank you!!!

This neighborhood is fast becoming a 'walking' neighborhood, with most all of your needs being met without ever having to get behind the wheel!

Sunset Boulevard is 6 blocks north (left as you exit the access gate onto Wilcox Avenue) of the property, and Hollywood Boulevard (which features the famous 'Walk of Fame' and Grauman's Chinese Theater, where the stars of yesteryear and yesterday have left their hand and foot prints in cement for us and for posterity) is 2 more blocks in the same direction.

You'll be walking toward the Hollywood Sign, which will come into view as you get past the CNN building that's blocking it from your front door.....

Located on Sunset, and its side street tributaries, you'll find restaurants of diverse proclivities, from vegetarian to carnivore and many in between.

FOOD WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE:

Umami Burger (1520 Cahuenga Blvd #7, 90028; 323-469-3100). Truffles are their not-so-secret ingredient. It's tricky to find because it's in....well, hard to describe the building it's in. If you walk east on Sunset (right turn if you're coming from Wilcox) then turn north (left) on Cahuenga, you'll encounter Space 15 Twenty, and within you'll find various shops and stores...and Umami Burger.

Stout (on Cahuenga), a patio bar/restaurant. They have an eclectic array of beers, AND a truffle burger.

Be sure to specify in both these places how you want your burger cooked as their default is medium rare.

Kitchen 24 (1608 N Cahuenga, 90028; 323-465-2424). It can be acoustically noisy (cement walls that magnify the sound if it's full of talkers), and features modern basic fare. If you're looking for an all around place, this one works.

Chicken Dijon Rotisserie & Grill (6282 Hollywood Blvd, 90028; 323-463-4050; ) has a wide choice of salads and wraps (upscale cafeteria; quick service and relatively healthy, tasty food) that are built around, as you might guess, chicken. Many 'locals' go here for lunch.

Urban Masala (6554 Hollywood Boulevard; 323-957-9999) features Indian cuisine and was recommended by a recent guest if you have a craving for curry.

The Melt (6290 Sunset Blvd, 90028; 213-344-4906) serves just what the name implies: Cheese sandwiches. I had the short rib on sourdough with black bean soup….delicious. Would definitively return.

La Numero Uno Restauraunt (1247 Vine Street; 323-957-1111) serves Latin cuisine. Highly recommended by a discerning guest and great reviews on Google, and well within walking distance, about 6 blocks east.

FAST FOOD:

Pizza Hut (6660 W Sunset Blvd)

Subway (6051 Hollywood Blvd; 1813 N Cahuenga Blvd; 6660 Sunset Blvd)

McDonalds (1413 N Vine; 6776 Hollywood Blvd)

Crazy Rockin Sushi (7100 Santa Monica Blvd)

Chipotle Mexican Grill (1460 Vine)

Starbucks (6102 W Sunset Blvd)

'Alcove' (casual) and 'Off Vine' (fine dining). I encourage you to check out the reviews on 'Yelp' for a more thorough report and location information on these establishments.

GROCERY STORES:

Trader Joes (1600 N Vine: .75 Miles--about 8 blocks), located at Selma and Vine (Selma is 1 block south of Sunset, Vine is 4 blocks east of Wilcox).

Ralph's Grocery (1233 N LaBrea: 1.1 miles; 5429 N Highland Ave: 1.1 miles)

OTHER:

Walgreens (5451 W Sunset Blvd: .99 miles; 1050 N Highland Ave: 1.03 miles)

On Sundays there is an open air Farmer's Market in the 1500 block of Ivar Avenue between Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards (left on Wilcox, right on Sunset) where you can get fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers. It is open between 8 AM. - 1 PM.

TRANSPORTATION:

To/From LAX Airport: ($20 per person, flat rate); ($26 one person, $9.00 each additional person)

This site will provide you with scheduling, route, and fare information for the Metro Bus and Subway system.

Zip car (1529 N Cahuenga; 323-866-4508) is an innovative company that rents cars for as little as $6.50 per hour. Great for those times when it’s too far to walk but you don’t necessarily need a vehicle full time. They have several pick up locations within blocks of the property.

Bikes and Hikes (323-796-8555; ) offers bicycle and hiking tours of Hollywood, as well as renting bicycles for personal use.
