The Hollywood lights surround you, views within views. This two-bedroom two-bath designer furnished luxury rental is perched above the electric city, apart yet of a whole. Sycamore is the perfect mix of retreat and launching pad for your next venture.
This luxe, modern expression of the Parisian spirit mixes old world decadence with modern luxury. Floor to ceiling windows open onto a wrap-around porch that encircles the space, and the kitchen is illuminated by backlit granite, creating a warm and energizing space that stimulates all of the senses.
The property is located just above one of the most dynamic and exciting neighborhoods in the world, but at the same time separated from the noise and hubbub of the Sunset Strip and Hollywood Boulevard by the glamorous Yamashiro restaurant and surrounded gardens. The nightlife and dining scene is 8 minutes from your door when you are ready to venture forth.After you are done enjoying the city, and before you head to bed, slip into the Jacuzzi tub and gaze through your private window to reflect on the night that has passed and is the future yet to come. You have played your part, and the city, designed for decadence, delivering dreams, is yours tonight.Come for the night, or stay for the year. Sycamore is a a space that satisfies your soul and inspires your heart.
Please note that there is currently construction going on next door to this home.

We have unfortunately experienced too many incidents of credit card fraud in these situations. If you have a last minute request, please contact us by email. We encourage you to call and speak directly to the owner, James Wilder, for these types of bookings, to feel comfortable with going outside of the HomeAway/VRBO system.

Owner is in the entertainment industry in addition to being a passionate and experimental builder. He is famous for his architectural innovations, attention to detail, and the fit and finish of his properties. He wants the house to be enjoyed, and loves sharing his deep knowledge of the local restaurant, nightlife, cultural and music scenes with guests. He sees his design work as creation of experiential art designed to facilitate a stress free and sensually fulfilling lifestyle filled with aesthetic stimulation and the simple pleasures of spending time with friends and family.
This house is situated in the playground of the rich and famous. The Hollywood Hills area is home to the most beautiful people in the world, and this property is ideally situated to take advantage of the shopping on Rodeo, a night out on Sunset, and world class restaurants and cultural institutions. You may have heard nightmares about the traffic in LA, that will not be an issue as everything worth doing is right in this area. As you ascend the drive to this villa in the sky you will feel your everyday worries falling away, when the door opens you will know you are home in the house you always dreamed of...if only for the night.
I brought my daughter and her family to LA for an early Christmas and this rental was just gorgeous. The views of the city were better than we expected and we felt very welcomed by the owner and online booking agent (who was very available to us if we ever had questions). We most definitely will come back and want to stay in the owners other "retreat" style houses as well!
Nice view of downtown Los Angeles! I enjoyed my time in this property, just wish I could've stayed longer. Hopefully the whole family can come again soon!
We had a great stay at this property from 30th December 2014 to 4th January 2015. The apartment is very spacious with a large living room, nice and comfy beds and a great and spectacular view in a quiet neighbourhood! The location is close to a lot of good sightseeing spots in L.A, e.g. Mulholland drive, the Hollywood sign, Universal studios and you can easily walk down to the Hollywood walk of fame etc. However, the property does not receive 5 stars since the finishing work of the apartment is below expectations compared to the pricing. Doors and locks are difficult to operate, there’s no wardrobe in the entrance area, lighting is too dark, the bathroom is separated from the living room only with a mirror hanging over two large holes in the wall (not very sound isolating), etc. Some might say the apartment has soul, but we expected a higher standard at this price level. Nevertheless, the apartment is a very good rental and we would absolutely recommend it to others, but the owner should perform necessary upgrades.
My wife, two teenage boys, and myself had a wonderful stay in this home for two weeks. The home was cheerful, unique, and is decorated in a hip Hollywood fashion. We spent each morning enjoying breakfast on our private balcony that overlooks all of LA. The whole family enjoyed the breathtaking views of Hollywood. The location is ideal and is very close to popular Hollywood landmarks. Brett was very easy to work with and was very knowledgable of the area. Overall, I highly recommend this property as a pleasant alternative to cookie-cutter hotels.
Just to let you know that we had a wonderful stay at your property! Thank you for making the rental process so easy and being so friendly. I have kept your company details and hope to experience this or another property next time I visit LA!
Staying in the Hollywood Hills made for a great vacation. We couldn't have asked for a better location. The home was very spacious with a very artistic decor. We enjoyed our stay at this charming retreat nestled in the hills and hope to come back and stay with you again!
Owners were very easy to work with and easily accessible. They even gave us passes to the exclusive Magic Castle which was definitely a highlight of our vacation!
