|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
**** [Check out my other listings #837148 & #837784]; I have three units, each similar square footage, amenities, and right next door to one another in the same building. 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!
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
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?
Walking distance to attractions, restaurants, entertainment.....
It was mine and my friends first time in LA and we couldn't have found a better place then this cozy home. Everywhere we went was within minutes from the house. We also loved the fact that it was a gated home it gave a sense of safety. Universal studio and city walk was about a ten minute ride from the home which was awesome. I could go on and on about my experience here, overall I would defiently recommend staying here. Planning on renting again this year if available:)
Good Hollywood location, walking distance to the Metro, buses and the tourist areas of Hollywood/Vine and Hollywood/Highland. Herbert was helpful and the unit was nice and clean. Perhaps a lockbox for the street gate would be beneficial for immediate entry on arrival. Wifi was fast and as we received the cleaning fee refund right away. We would recommend to anyone who needs a central Hollywood location.
We had a wonderful experience! The level of accommodations and comfort surpasses any we have experienced before. Location was quiet yet close to all the sites Hollywood has to offer. The domicile was very clean, cozy and fitted with everything we would need and more. Will definitely rent from again!
The studio looked just like the photos, well appointed and well laid out. It was clean and well cared for and Herbert was a great host, meeting me there even though my plane arrived fairly late. I would definitely return for another visit.
I've stayed in several other vrbos, and while some exceeded my expectations, others unfortunately we're not as described. I was befuddled over the 4-5 star reviews they had been given. I'm happy to say this rental met all expectations. The unit we stayed in was clean and tastefully decorated, the kitchen had all the necessary equipment, and the bed was divine. The ceiling fan and air conditioner were much appreciated after spending the day in sweltering So Cal heat. All our planned destinations were a short drive away. We had no problem finding parking near the unit, but brush up on your parallel parking skills. A smaller rental car would be to your advantage.

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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
