Hollywood Hills Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Spacious, fun, Centrally located!

Welcome to Hollywood! When making a request, please send an EMAIL request first before calling. We try to keep thorough electronic records so we can better serve you and avoid booking complications!

Beautiful 1400 square foot 2 bedroom in a Spanish-Style fourplex built in 1926 with VIEWS of Hollywood Hills in the CHARMING, HISTORIC, neighborhood of HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS.

Hollywood Living at it's Finest! Just 5 BLOCKS from the Metro and the world-famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre, yet still private and intimate. Why drive when it's a quick walk down to EVERYTHING? Want to go to the Hollywood Bowl? Four blocks. Get on the freeway? Five blocks, yet it is completely unheard and unseen. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!

The master has lovely views and direct access to the bathroom. the 2nd bedroom is partially separated by drapes (see photos), and both bedrooms have queen beds. There is an inflatable queen mattress available and the couches (though they do not pull out). This property is ideal for two, can easily fit four-six , though for six guests we prefer you rent our larger property in the same building. There is laundry, dishwasher, microwave, stove, oven, Super high speed wifi, a massage chair, cable, an AC/heat unit in the living room, TVs in each bedroom, DVD players, Directv, and it has its own entrance. The Bathroom and lighting has just been remodeled, the furniture newly reupholstered, and we are constantly upgrading our properties' amenities. The entrance is down 15 steps from street level, so this property is not wheelchair accessible, though the entire unit is on one level.

Originally built for a silent film star, this building has had a long history of famous tenants, including the Oscar-Winning screenwriter of 'The Sting' and many actors and actresses!

PLEASE READ: There is NO assigned parking, but available street parking which is permit (we have a guest pass for your use).

There is a 3-Night Minimum stay unless there's last minute vacancy, and there is a $100 cleaning fee :-) Please see our other listing VRBO 208878 if you have a larger group. it is a HUGE 3+3 in the same building, so you also may book both to accommodate your party. This property is not appropriate for parties and late night antics, given its position in the building, but is wonderful for travelers, tourists and small families. For your safety and ours, the entrance is on camera. If there is no damage found, the damage deposit is refunded automatically directly from VRBO after 7 days. There is NO smoking in this property!


Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hollywood & Highland, Tours of the Stars Homes, Kodak Theatre, Disney's El Capitan Theatre, Grauman's Chinese Theater, Madam Tussauds, Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood & Vine, Pantages Theatre, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Hollywood Christmas Parade, as well as the newest and hottest night clubs, bars, & restaurants in Los Angeles.

Great value in this Holllywood Heights home!

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed! Came here for the weekend to stay with some friends, it was perfect. A very cozy house with a whole lot of that old-hollywood-charm! You can tell that the owner puts a lot of pride and character into the home, even his own personality shines through. There are several design styles represented in the house from modern to retro that make it appealing to many tastes. Kevin (the owner) was very accommodating considering it was a last minute booking.

The layout makes the house feel very big. We were there with exactly 6 people (3 couples.) Keep in mind that the second bedroom is separated but with curtains, however there is privacy. It was kept very clean and the surrounding neighborhood felt safe. We actually talked with neighbors and they were great!

There is anything that you would need fore a home away from home, blankets, kitchen items and gadgets, washer dryer, etc.

I would definitely stay here again, considering the price, value, and closeness to everything!

Great location and property

  • 5 of 5

We had a little trouble finding the address late at night but once we found the correct building all was great. The address numbers get smaller as you go up the hill. Parking wasn't much of an issue for us but it is easiest with a small car and you might need to head up the hill a bit. Shower was great-good water pressure. Beds and bedding were comfortable and our family felt very much at home here. Perfect place to come back to after a day of touring all LA has to offer. Close enough to be able to walk to Hollywood Blvd and The Walk of Fame. Massage chair is wonderful! Highly recommend a stay at this home. Kevin was easy to work with. We texted as needed. Be prepared to walk up the many hills and steps in the area! Enjoy the city-lots of fun!

Worked out great!!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Sacramento to visit family for my father's 90th birthday. We had 3 teenagers (2 girls/1 boy). This placed worked out great! Everyone had space to relax after driving around LA. There was a nice Sushi restaurant right down the street (could have walked but drove). Parking was described accurately. We had a Sienna van but found parking up the hill. Kevin was very helpful. We had no problems. Thanks for everything!

Fantastic Place. Fantastic Host

  • 5 of 5

Writing this review just before we check out and I don't want to leave. My family and I stayed here for over 2 weeks and the house is great. Everything is as advertised and more. Location is in the middle of the Hollywood action and the views from the neighbourhood are spectacular. Kevin is always quick to answer any question or concern and is very helpful. I was worried about the parking going in but was always able to find a spot fairly easily. Can't wait to come back!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here for three nights while visiting the Hollywood/LA

area. It was a great "home base" for our adventures. We were nervous at first with the parking situation, but it ended up working out just fine. Thank you for sharing this lovely space with us!
