Best Place to Stay in an Incredible Hollywood Hills Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

I came to Los Angeles from New York to celebrate 4th of July with my friends . After personally looking at half a dozen houses in this area I chose this house because of its amazing location, spacious house and gorgeous view!. The house is close to amazing restaurants and bars all around the city like Chateau Marmont, Katana and others. We were really happy staying here and wished we had had another week in the city! I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing weekend. You won't be disappointed.

I will definitely be revisiting soon!!!

Thanks a lot Michael !!!

Vacation in Paradise ;-)

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional vacation

My friends and I stayed at this place for our vacation in L.A. We wanted to be close to the best part of Hollywood, yet feel private and comfortable. Definitely the right choice for what we were looking for. The house is 5 minutes away from all the famous attractions, yet it’s like living in a mountain retreat. The views are gorgeous. The two kitchens were such a wonderful accommodation. The hosts treated us wonderfully. This is a vacation we will never forget! Thank you!

Unbelievable experience!

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this property for a yearly company retreat and all of us were extremely happy with the choice! The location is perfect: the heart of Hollywood is just minutes away, which was so convenient when we were out on the town. Wonderful views from every room. Super quiet and calm neighborhood. The pool table and shuffleboard were lots of fun. The owners were very professional an treated us so well. Great on the budget too! 5 star experience. We hope to come back soon!

Gorgeous View

  • 5 of 5

Spacious house with a beautiful view of the Hollywood Hills. Multiple patios with privacy. Not too far out, with easy access to Sunset Boulevard. Had a large group of 13 and still had plenty of room.

Exceptional place

  • 5 of 5

Great house with beautiful views from every room! Modern design and well appointed. The house had two kitchens, one on each floor, which was very convenient for our party. New washer and dryer. We felt very private. The owners and the manager were very pleasant and were always quick to respond. The Jacuzzi in the back yard was really fun, and so were the pool table and shuffle board. Extremely happy with this choice and with the entire experience! We would definitely stay here again!

If you find a better place in LA, I'll eat my hat!

  • 5 of 5

When I first saw the photos of this place, the amenities, the location, and the price, I was pretty sure something was up. I looked through the listing a few times and it all checked out. I did read that 1-star review, however I thought it was exaggerated and the owner's response was reasonable.

As such, I booked with Michael and after a few phone calls and mailing out a check, had the place booked.

I arrived on Friday afternoon and my jaw dropped. The place is incredible. Hands down the best value-to-quality venue I've ever stayed at and I've been to more than a few. The photos are good, but they just don't do it justice.

The furnishings are modern, stylistic and practical. Plentiful couches to relax on, a huge TV to enjoy, a pool table, shuffleboard (of all things!), balconies all around, jacuzzi and sauna upstairs, another jacuzzi outside among the trees, resilient WIFI, four bathrooms with plenty of hot water, two kitchens each with their own refrigerator, and a new wooden dining table which easily seats 8 people. Did I mention the location and the view?

Michael was fastidious, ensuring all our needs were met, and was prompt when I asked extra questions over text. He worked with us wherever possible, accommodating our later departure on checkout as there were no guests immediately following our stay.

There are three minor details to be aware of, but even together they are not concerning:

1. The driveway wasn't working and we had to park on the street. This didn't bother us, but guests should be aware of it, especially those with nice cars who want them to be under cover.

2. No smoking is allowed on the balconies, only behind the house. Again, not a big problem and totally understandable (the smoke smell would otherwise migrate into the house), but it requires constant vigilance as smokers often get lazy and want to enjoy the view while they puff away.

3. I'm in technology, and I much prefer online bookings over mailing checks. Again, not a strong concern, but I'm sure hoping Michael upgrades the payment options by the time we return.

Quite frankly, if you want location, luxury, view, style, comfort and fun, then don't bother looking anywhere else, you just won't find it.
