My guests say:

'The views of LA are amazing! You could just sit on the balcony and never leave watching the world go by!' - Leila, London

'Once you walk in the door and see the view you'll never want to leave.' - Rob & Dave, Toronto

'The stunning views from Scott's house are equal to his hospitality and responsiveness--both are excellent.' - Rosy, New York City

This is the perfect vacation spot in Los Angeles! The small, cozy house is perched 800 ft above sea level with unobstructed, spectacular views of Hollywood, downtown Los Angeles and all the way to Long Beach, the ocean and Catalina Island. Photos cannot even capture the breath taking view! This Hollywood Hills house is just 2 minutes from famous night spots like Saddle Ranch, House of Blues and The Comedy Club as well as other restaurants and hot spots. Ten minutes away from Hollywood Blvd sightseeing, Universal Studios, trendy Melrose shopping and Beverly Hills, and 30 minutes to Venice Beach, Santa Monica Pier and Malibu.

The house also has my personal listings of recommended sights, restaurants and shopping to save you time and money and get the most out of your vacation. All the photos of the view on this page were taken from the balcony by me personally!

About The Owner

The house may be small, but it is so cozy, it's on quiet deadend street, AND it's 2 minutes from the Sunset strip. Even after all these years I am amazed by the view and still soak it up!

The Owner purchased this studio in 2003

Why The Owner chose Los Angeles County

The view is amazing and the location is perfect.

What makes this studio unique

The view, the view and also the view! Some people end up doing nothing but reading a book on the balcony when they stay here! Being 2 minutes to the Suset strip and right in the middle of everything in L.A. makes this perfect for sightseeing!

The place was perfect for us as a couple, it had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. Being right at the top of the hill we were worried it would be hard to get around but ordering an Uber was easy, they always came to get us & had no dramas getting dropped off back there. We walked down the hill on our first day, dont recommend it!! It was tough! Apart from that, we were grateful for Scott's place being away from downtown, was amazing being able to relax after being out all day & just sit on the verandah overlooking the city. Whole experience was fantastic, would recommend!

We arrived a day early by mistake and we were accommodated without an issue; thankyou. We loved the apartment but the views from the balcony were simply breathtaking. Definitely recommend.

Best place in town

  • 5 of 5

The place is great. You can't get a better view for the price. It's exactly like the pictures. It's a prefect place for two. It's close to all the touristy places. Every morning and every night gives you this surreal feeling. Makes you feel like your living large. The drive up and down the hill is really fun. There isn't anything negative to say. Definately my go-to place if I ever go back to Beverly Hills. If your looking at cheaper places trust me, Dish out the extra cash and stay here. You won't regret it for a minute. The hosts are great too.

Great view and a great host!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here, the view is phenomenal! A great sized place for a couple of people. Very close to WeHo, Beverly Hills and more. Easy to catch an uber or drive yourself. Scott (the owner) was more than accommodating and very friendly to work with. I highly recommend a stay here!

Unbelievable View!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on here don't do justice of what the actual view is. Walking in, the city skyline just hits you! Being a first timer in LA, maybe it was more of a first time shock, but we spent hours on the balcony just admiring the view.

The one negative which has nothing to do with the house itself, is it's up in the hills and the internet on our phones (and the uber driver phones) didn't work so well when getting up there. So the first couple of times it took extra time because we couldn't figure out the streets. So to avoid this on pickups, we would just walk the 3/4 mile down the hill to Sunset Blvd (which isn't fun either). But we ordered delivery one night and uber pick up at departure and neither had an issue finding us.

Perfect central location for everything. We walked to In/Our Burger, then up to Hollywood Blvd, and our uber/lyft rides to Santa Monica and Rodeo Drive were under $20 (even less with coupon codes and using the pool option).

Check in was easy, this place is perfect for 1-2 people, everything in the house worked as expected.

Overall we made the PERFECT choice for what we wanted out of this trip. Again, the hill getting up/down to the house is pretty steep so if you're not active, you will need a ride whenever leaving. But if you don't mind a little walking (we averaged 8 miles walking/day) and you love a great city view, this place is perfect!
