About the property

3 Bedroom 3 Bathroom, View Home

This home features over 1700 ft2 of breathtaking views. As you enter through the brand new cook's kitchen featuring Subzero and Miele appliances, you are taken aback by the breathtaking endless view across the Hollywood cityscape. This home is walking distance from the famous Yamashiro Hotel and Restaurant, and many of Hollywood's famous attractions. Very few view properties in the Hollywood hills get to boast such amazing views while still allowing the privilege of walking to the market or dinner. Moments from Beachwood and Runyon Canyon, this home is an excellent fit for those who want to enjoy the outdoors and Southern California sunshine. The second bedroom can easily convert to a large office. This property excites the senses as the city lights reach out across the horizon. Each detail of the home has been carefully crafted to truly create an experience of a lifetime. The new 3rd penthouse bedroom and master bath on the very top level is spectacular and even has an outdoor kitchen!

This home can be rented as a 3 bedroom, or converted into a 4 bedroom, or 5 bedroom for larger groups. The prices listed reflect the prices for the 3 bedroom option.

Please note that there is currently construction going on next door to this home.

Absolutely Fasincating

  • 5 of 5

Stress Reliever, if you need a peace of mind this is the place for you. Very clean with breath taking views. The home looks exactly like the pictures. Everything you need is right down the street (literally). The place was so nice I rented it twice. Both times never had a problem. The owner was a 5 star business man. Looking forward to renting other property's from him.

Breath taking views is right, this was a great getaway destination when we really needed it. I Loved the design and decor of this home and will never stay in a hotel again while visiting Hollywood. Thanks James

Beautiful View!

We really enjoyed our stay in this house. It really is a breath taking view, one that you can enjoy from almost all areas of the house. The house is kept and the interior design is gorgeous. Thank you for a very pleasant vacation!

A very charming space

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here along with my sister and her husband. It was so beautiful, peaceful and great place for us to spend time together! We spent each morning enjoying coffee and conversation on our private patio which had an amazing view! The home was very spacious and had everything we needed for the two weeks we stayed including washer and dryer which was very convenient. The neighborhood is located close to Hollywood but manages to stay peaceful and quiet. Brett was a delight to work with and was responsive to any questions or request that we had! We can't wait to till the next time we are in LA, we hope to rent from Brett again!

Convenience and luxury

  • 5 of 5

Great place for an extended stay, a duplex with lots of room for living, dining and relaxing. Very nice kitchen with lots of cabinet space. Centrally located just off the highway and Hollywood. A big plus for us was the Farmers Market just down the street, we spent every Thursday night enjoying LA's finest eats. Managers were very easy to work with and accessible if we had questions.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

Josh and his team were very easy to work with, and the location was perfect for sightseeing! The home is located just above Hollywood and is just down the hill from fine dining and great entertainment. The location of the home was key for our vacation, we we're just a short drive away from the studios and other major attractions. We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a lovely home with a spectacular view!
