Beautiful 1400 sqft 2+1 in 1926 Spanish 4plex HISTORIC HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS with VIEWS. 1 floor, washer/dryer, wifi, spacious. walking distance to best of hollywood! private, convenient. AC, new paint, lovingly appointed
Hollywood Living! Originally built for a silent film star in 1926, this building has had a long history of famous tenants, including the Oscar-Winning screenwriter of 'The Sting'! It is in an historic Hollywood fourplex that we are constantly upgrading :) this is NOT a place to party, it is above and below every bedroom in the building. There is NO smoking of ANY kind inside the property and the entire deposit will be forfeit if ANY trace or odor of smoking is found inside. We repeat, NO SMOKING!
This property has been lovingly appointed by a professional designer, with contemporary and antique pieces. The dining chairs and sofas have been newly custom upholstered. The master has a queen mattress, lovely views and direct access to the bathroom (which has a 2nd general entrance off the hall). The 2nd bedroom has a new custom platform bed and super soft silky shag rug. The 2nd bedroom is separated by a wall and solid curtains rather than a door, but the property is big enough that there is still privacy. This property is ideal for 2, and can easily fit 4-6 with an inflatable mattress available (for larger parties we always recommend our larger 3 bedroom property however). There is laundry in the bathroom, and this unit has its own entrance. There is NO assigned parking but there is available permit only street parking and a permit available for your use. A small car is strongly recommended for ease of parking in the hills. The property is from 1926, and is a fun space in a fantastic location :)
The property is accessed via approx. 18 outdoor stairs, so it is not wheelchair friendly though the unit is all one level. The indoor staircase you see in the photos does not go anywhere, it is a remnant from when the building was two huge townhomes.
The entire unit is yours to enjoy, but the outdoor areas of the building other than the stairs are attached to other units.
Interaction with guests
We are on site and nearby for your needs and questions, but we like to let our guests have their privacy and space, so the level of interaction is up to our individual guests. there is a self-check-in process with coded keyless entry and everything can be done via text if so desired :)

Where do I start, my family and I spent part of our summer vacation here. The house was wonderful, Kevin was an angel for accommodating us especially since it was last minute as we were driving into LA. I have never slept with the windows open but this home sleeping with the windows open was so peaceful and the view from all areas of the home were great. The kitchen is fully stocked with every dish, pan, pot, utensil that you can think of. We only had to buy toilet tissue and paper towels. Reading earlier reviews parking was great for us each night we could park in the street by the home. The location is perfect we walked from the home to Hollywood boulevard in less than 10 minutes. Six flags about 30 minutes, Universal Studios around the corner, Hollywood Bowl is right above the home. We will defiantly stay here on our future trips to LA. Thanks Kevin!

Authentic Hollywood Adventure
Guest Marti (Cambridge MA)
My grown daughter and I were the first guests and came into town to attend the movie premier of Gangster Squad at the Chines Theater. We could walk there! The location is amazing. The place is very big, but note that the second bedroom is not private. That was fine with us. We always found street parking, but the streets are narrow, so rent a small car. You can walk right down to the Walk of Fame. Have a meal at the Roosevelt Hotel burger spot! The decor is wonderful and the owners are very thoughtful. I am a frequent (website hidden) renter and this place is the cat's pajamas. The neighborhood is hilly and there are stairs down to the entrance, otherwise, this is a sophisticated place for older visitors.

Guest Kelley & Kem (Atlanta,Ga)
All I can say is Wow! My family and I always stay in vacation rentals when we travel, so we've seen the god, the bad and, well.....you know the rest. This property suited my family and I ver well. It's in a great location. Safe and secure neighborhood. The home was well appointed, even down to the environment friendly cleaning products (smile). The owner Kevin was very easy to work with and his follow up when we contacted him about anything was quick and helpful! We will definitely be staying at this property again. This property does have a pretty long set of stairs (to the front for) that might be difficult for some elderly or people with issues walking.

Great value in this Holllywood Heights home!
Guest Andrea T.
Very impressed! Came here for the weekend to stay with some friends, it was perfect. A very cozy house with a whole lot of that old-hollywood-charm! You can tell that the owner puts a lot of pride and character into the home, even his own personality shines through. There are several design styles represented in the house from modern to retro that make it appealing to many tastes. Kevin (the owner) was very accommodating considering it was a last minute booking.
The layout makes the house feel very big. We were there with exactly 6 people (3 couples.) Keep in mind that the second bedroom is separated but with curtains, however there is privacy. It was kept very clean and the surrounding neighborhood felt safe. We actually talked with neighbors and they were great!
There is anything that you would need fore a home away from home, blankets, kitchen items and gadgets, washer dryer, etc.
I would definitely stay here again, considering the price, value, and closeness to everything!
Great Apartment, wonderful location
Guest marke (Sydney Australia)
I travel to LA several times a year for business and always where possible rent apartments. This apartment has been one of the best, wonderful location just a couple of short blocks behind all the fun of Hollywood Boulevard, yet it is in a nice old, peaceful upmarket location.
The apartment it self is very well laid out and equipped, it is also very clean and airy. It has lots of character features and this makes you feel instantly at home. Both Michael and Kevin are a pleasure to communicate with and responded to any questions I had very quickly.
I can highly recommend this apartment and I am sure I will be staying here many more times in my upcoming visits!

We allow very small events at our property, but we have a four night minimum stay unless it is a last minute booking, or fits within the schedule. We expect our guests to be courteous and respectful to our neighbors and be aware that noise in the hollywood hills travels VERY easily and is amplified quickly. After 10pm we request that any open windows be closed if there are loud conversations, movies or music playing, and we request that we be notified if any groups of more than 6 people are present. This unit is below many bedrooms and above another, so we request that late night noise and 'running' be kept to a minimum, and a shoe rack is provided at the door to facilitate that :) This property does NOT work well for raucous parties or loud music. There is NO SMOKING on the premises. It is allowed on the outside stairs with the door shut, but PLEASE pick up all ash, butts and debris. Any evidence of smoking/smoke odor inside the property will be charged a minimum of $200, and possibly immediate eviction from the premises. Pets, though we love them, are not allowed except by express permission. Due to numerous problems with underage guests, we have to restrict our property to groups with at least one member over 24 years of age. Families are lovely, but we unfortunately cannot host unchaperoned groups of youths. Please dispose of food properly, so not to attract mice and ants (The hills are a living ecosystem!).
