South 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. Dishwashing machine. 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.

Amazing Time in LA at the House in the Hills

  • 5 of 5

The house was really charming and had a great art deco feel to it. The pool was heated and beautiful. The owner of the house was amazing and very responsive to everything we needed. We loved it.

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

We used this house as a way to host everyone in my family for a holiday weekend. Seven adults were able to comfortably stay at the house.

We thoroughly enjoyed the house. Brian met me at the house when we checked in, and walked us through all the features of the house. Everything was clean, well maintained, and functional upon arrival.

We used this house as a base of operations to play tourist in Los Angeles, and we were still able to relax at the house itself! The house allows for easy access to much of Los Angeles, especially with the advent of Lyft and Uber. The Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area was within easy walking distance, and a great way to relax for all ages.

A wonderful house with a stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed in this house this august. We had an absolutely wonderful time! The house is exceptional and big enough so everyone has a quiet corner when he/she needs it. The garden and surrounding speaks for itself. The pool is great and the view is just stunning. At night you have an awesome outlook over the city and watching the sun come up in the morning over greater LA - we were thrilled! The whole property was very clean and well maintained. Brian came by to say hello and we had a really nice chat. Everything you need is within reach and if you want to spend a great holiday in LA, we can highly recommend this house. It is very quiet up there and the neighbourhood is friendly and nice. We could only stay for a week but I hope we´ll manage to come again.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home! We just returned from our family vacation staying at this house and the house fit our needs perfectly. A nice open floor plan and beautiful deck and views, just like the pictures and house info described. We are an athletic family and loved that the house connected to a large park with hiking trails so it worked out nicely. Brian was an informative owner and was helpful to provide information about the area and where places were located. The house is about 6 miles from West Hollywood area, which was had the best nightlife. Overall, a very positive experience and would rent here again!

Beautiful home & true to the description.

  • 1 of 5

The house is beautiful & true to the description. That being said, if you are a people person, the owner is not someone pleasant to deal with. Our expensive damage deposit was not returned. Yes, there was some liquid left on the floor which caused damage but not the high quoted price we got without any estimates or receipts. We were also told other reasons our deposit wasn't returned was due to a potato chip left by the hot tub & the dishes weren't dry enough after being washed & put back in the cupboard.There was also discrimination in our age & reason for the trip (& we are not young , careless people). This was not by any means fair nor was the damage worth the price the owner stated or even justified. I've rented many homes in the past & i have never dealt with a home owner who ripped us off with the damage deposit to this degree! Think twice before dropping $$$$ to rent this property!!!

Owner's Response: This really is not a fair review. Fortunately I have been able to return 99% of all security deposits in full as most of the people I have rented to are respectful and responsible people who take good care of the property. In this case, the renter caused damages to the home (well in excess of the security deposit) which were carefully documented. Because of this the security deposit was applied to the repairs of the home. I am certainly not eager to do this, but in order to maintain the home properly, if a renter does cause damages, they are financially responsible for them- that of course, is the purpose of the security deposit. -Brian

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.
