Why James chose Hollywood Hills
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 Morrocan Contemporary 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.

peaceful & charming
Very charming and cozy vacation rental in the Hills away from the all the hustle and bustle of Hollywood. If you're looking to find a little peace and quiet in the city then look no further -- this is the place. I just love the energy of this space! It was absolutely perfect for me traveling solo & the views really are as outstanding as everyone else previously mentioned.
Bryan - we really appreciate the time you took to give us feedback. Please come back again and stay in one of our other homes! Best, James
Hollywood Hills getaway
My wife, son and I spent a week here and loved every minute of the stay! The views were astounding and even my cousin, who lives in West Hollywood, was amazed with the views.
James and Lisa were very communicative every step and delivered every promise. The photos on VRBO were a very good representation of the property with the following differences:
1) the view cannot be captured accurately in photos - it's much better in person!
2) the location is great. While it's not truly a walk to everything due to the hilltop location, you are literally a 10 minute drive to the Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood, Sunset strip and West Hollywood. It's a 30/50 minute drive (traffic dependent) to Venice, LAX, downtown LA and Malibu.
3) The shower is very cool
4) no bugs! We come from the Midwest where mosquitos are horrible. Here, we slept with the 30 foot window open and had no problems.
5) James and Lisa are extremely professional. We met James briefly upon arrival and he was very cordial and fun to talk with.
6) The bed was comfortable.
7) James was very responsive to questions and requests throughout our stay.
8) on the ever so slightly negative side -
8.a) some of the outdoor linens were slightly sun worn (discolored) but they functioned perfectly. Oh yes, the daybed on the patio was really relaxing both day and night.
8.b) the hot tub needed to be run a day or so to get clean but, again, was of very minor concern.
8.c) the air conditioning was a window type and in the bedroom. Coming from hot and humid Chicago, we thought this would be a problem but it, the three fans and the cool nights were perfect and we actually used blankets to stay warm.
Would I stay here again? Yes, in an instant! The owner is wonderful and it's one of the most unique places I have stayed in all of our journeys. My wife actually stayed home for a day simply to enjoy the view and solitude while I took my son to visit a college.
Thank you for your wonderful comments! So glad that you enjoyed your stay and we would LOVE for you to return to this or one of our other homes anytime. Lisa and James
Did a weekend girls trip here and it was stunning!! Beautifully designed and very cozy - perfect size for the three of us. None of us had ever seen a view quite like this. Lisa was always available by email if we had any questions. Thanks for a great trip!
We appreciate your being such great guests. Come again!
You pay for the view...
Ultimately, before I break it down. I had a great month in LA and after it's all said and done, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Though, it took some time to get comfortable. The house was not clean, it was not to the standards of a person who is spending this amount of money to stay in a luxury villa at the top of Hollywood Hills. The cleaning checklist was out and was not met to say the least.
One of the selling points to me was the hot tub on the balcony. This was absolutely disgusting and insanitary, so we wrote the company to come clean it. They poured bleach in it, that's about it. That does not clean a hot tub that's gunky and full of funk! So we did not use it.
The power kicked off quite a few times, the owner thought it was because of our very minimal studio equipment, but it was because of the hot tub. I believe that, and the laundry, and the lighting were all in the same circuit.
We got along well with the owner, who stays just across the street from us, until he got irritated for our having company over one night. He seemed to believe we were having parties and a ton of people over, but I believe it was the people renting below us. They had parties, dinners, daytime gatherings, and took up ALL the parking on our street including our designated spot. We never complained, but the moment we had more than one car over, it became a problem. So we laid low for the most part.
Any who, the view, and the inspiration was well worth the stay here, it's not the most heavenly picture perfect rental, but it's realistic.
My favorite getaway!
I have been in many Hollywood Hills homes in this area...this is my favorite. It has a great feel, wonderful views in an isolated location. I feel so relaxed in this nice 1 story layout, looking forward to my next visit.
The Hills Moroccan Casbah Contemporary sits above all of Hollywood amongst a celebrity filled neighborhood. Our homes are built by, and lived in by artists and celebrities, and we pride ourself on providing a creative environment for those who wish to be inspired.
