Los Angeles House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths

This is truly a special property. The home was custom-built in 1956 hill-top among a small and private community with some of the best views of the city anywhere. In addition to tremendous views the home itself has an open floor plan with the entire back of the house having panoramic windows. The home is a nice blend of original character and tasteful upgrades.

The property is located ideally for a visit to Los Angeles. Within a 10-15 minute drive you can be in any part of the city including LAX airport, downtown LA, Santa Monica and the beach, Venice, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, etc. What makes the property an oasis is that although it is centrally located to all the city offers it has ultimate privacy. There are no rear neighbors as the property borders a 750+ acre preserve that includes miles of hiking trails. The landscape is one of the best features of the home with all sorts of large and exotic specimens from around the world.

The neighborhood is small, quiet and friendly. You can enjoy going for walks in the hill-top neighborhood or in the huge bordering park for miles of trails and views.

The swimming pool utilizes salt water (saline) sterilization so no harsh chemicals are used. The pool is heated through solar panels, or may be heated to your desired temperature using the gas heater (expense may apply). Additionally the spa/ jacuzzi utilizes a non-chlorine system for soft water. It has a built in stereo system and is perfectly located for taking in the city lights and stars at night. Enjoy the outdoor shower.

The house is fully equipped with all standard kitchen appliances. Vitamix blender, Wolf Gas Range, Dual Convection Ovens, etc. Nespresso coffee and espresso is provided for you. Bedding, linens, and towels are of high quality. Two Dishwashing machines. Front loading clothes washer and dryer. The house comes stocked with all the basics including body wash, shampoo, conditioner, etc.

Wifi is available throughout with the maximum speed possible. Apple TV, Netflix, HBO, and cable included.

Parking is available right in the drive way or in front of the house.

Maid service is not included, but can be provided at a nominal expense if you desire it. Or you can keep it clean yourself with the cleaning supplies provided.

Renting to responsible parties only. Ideal for couples and small families or business travelers. Parties, weddings, group functions with approval only. Also available for longer term rentals. Email for more details including additional photos. Please let me know who you are in your email and what you're looking for. This is a private residence that has been built, furnished and maintained with much pride and is managed directly by the owner and rented selectively. Thanks.

About Owner/Property Manager

I fell in love with and purchased this home 12 years ago from the original owners. I have spent the previous 12 years making tasteful upgrades while preserving the original character. This remains an ongoing process, so should you return you will find it even better than the last time. Thoughtfully designed interior and exterior. The home has character, I think you will agree on arrival. It's a special place...

Guestbook comments from the owner

We fell in love with Brian's home when we saw the photos and we were NOT disappointed when we arrived. The house is big and beautiful. The grounds are incredible. Wow. We hope to book again- possibly in the summer.

Super comfortable home, great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful mid-century home with great running paths and privacy right outside the door. The landscaping in back yard is awesome. Great views to the city and Hollywood. Perfect location for us. Although a quiet neighborhood, an easy/quick drive to Hollywood Boulevard, Manhattan Beach, Venice Beach and Santa Monica. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful home and view, clean, quiet, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay. While we did a lot of touring in and out of the city, we still had lots of time to enjoy the house, It’s clear that a lot of thought was put into the design and appointments both indoors and out. Those whom we met throughout the neighbourhood were cordial, and it was nice and quiet. When I think about it, with the craziness of LA traffic, the home really did seem like an oasis tucked away up there on the hill. I mention traffic because it would be unfair not to address it however this is an issue anywhere you stay in LA and actually we found this home quite central and it was relatively easy to get to our activities. We would definitely return if we found ourselves heading back to LA.

All you could ask for and more!

Came for thanksgiving week. I'm a cookbook author and kitchen had everything I needed to prepare dinner for six! Spacious modern interior with views that took my breath away a little too cool for pool but hot tub was great and views day and night were very calming. If it's available GRAB IT! 15 minutes from airport and 25 minutes to Beverly center. Brian was courteous, responsive and very nice to work with.

Great location, gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the house - the tranquillity, the view and the space. It was clean, spacious and had a beautiful garden with a spectacular view. The kitchen was well-equipped and we used the barbeque outside numerous times.

The pool and the jacuzzi are incredible.

We would highly recommend this house to everyone and we will definitely come back another time.

A great house! Very centrally located to visit LA.

  • 5 of 5

The house offers all you need. Great terrace with view on downtown LA. The botanic garden is awesome. Design furniture. The location (in middle between the beaches, hollywood and dowtown LA) of the house makes it easy to visit LA.

Just Great!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had the true joy to stay at Brian's "Oasis" in the city for 3 weeks for both work and mostly pleasure. We found the home suited us perfectly and was really delightful in all ways. The home has a certain style and feel about it that is very different from other places we have rented in the past. Everything about the house was thoughtful and nice. The views are to die for. The pool is so enjoyable, as is the Jacuzzi tub. We loved the large windows throughout the house that enabled viewing of the city lights, the mountains, and even the stars. We found the location to be ideal for our purposes and the quiet little neighborhood is like going back in time- not what you'd expect from big city living. Overall we love the home and would/ will gladly return!
