Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Hollywood - Sunset Hollywood Bungalow 2

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Location, location, location. You simply will not find a more charming and centrally located Hollywood vacation spot. The Sunset Hollywood Bungalows are 1 block south of Sunset Blvd, in the heart of literally everything. Sunset Hollywood Bungalow 2 is the smaller of two rental homes, and has 1 bedroom. The price for the small Bungalow is 187 per night.

Scroll to the bottom of this page for all current pictures.

These are separate houses, with no walls connecting you to someone else. Designed in the Hollywood Craftsman style of the main house, which was built in 1920 for studio employees, writers, and actors. The back house is completely private and separate from the front house. The back house, Sunset Hollywood Bungalow 2, was built in ’08 from the ground up to make this a dream vacation or months-long rental.

The Bungalow has a big bedroom, huge bright and cheerful living room, and a tiled (Hollywood-style) bathroom with tub & shower. The kitchen is big and has everything you need to cook in if you wish. Sunset Bungalow 2 has French doors that lead from the living area to an enormous—and completely private--patio, cooled by a grand old tree..

ALL AMENITIES AND OFF-STREET PARKING:

The pictures are fully accurate and recent.

You have your own parking space, and a second space is available.

I (the host/owner) am a Hollywood native. I will help if you need suggestions, directions, etc., so that you have a wonderful Hollywood experience. The only thing I can't promise is celebrity sightings, but follow the paparazzi and the oversized sunglasses and you're sure to see them.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you.

About Kirby Tepper

I bought this house in 2001 and built the guest Bungalow in 2008. My father was born in L.A., so I'm a 2nd generation Angeleno--in fact, my Dad went to Hollywood High, just around the corner from here. And my mom spent her entire career at CBS television, also within a few minutes walking distance of my house.

I spent much of my career in the entertainment world...I started my career as a Broadway (New York) performer, then moved back to my hometown of L.A. to do some t.v. and film, eventually becoming a songwriter for various shows, most proudly having written a song in the first 'Shrek' movie. Several years back I made a career transition and became a psychotherapist, obviously a big change, and I love my work.

Kirby Tepper purchased this house in 2008

Why Kirby Tepper chose Hollywood

The Sunset Hollywood Bungalow is my pet project. I love Hollywood and am amazed and elated that it has had such a fantastic renaissance.

There isn't a better location in Hollywood to experience the feel of what has happened here in the last several years. It's within walking distance of all the big Hollywood landmarks, theatres, and metro stops. For example, you can walk 5 minutes to the metro, take the metro one stop, and you're at Universal Studios. It's only a few minutes by car to the Museums, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood. People come here from all over the world, I live vicariously as they discover fun things to do, places to eat, clubs, etc.

The main house is a classic Hollywood Bungalow built in 1920 for studio workers. In 2008 I had the back (smaller) Bungalow built from the ground up, so it's brand new.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to major tourist attractions, tour buses, subways and L.A. metro, restaurants, shopping.

Very clean (see reviews for confirmation), very private.

Parking for 2 cards (unheard of in Los Angeles, trust me!)

Perfect Hollywood Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
Our 5-night stay at Sunset Hollywood Bungalow was the the perfect end to a two-week, cross county vacation adventure. The location, the size and amenities made us feel at home. Perfectly situated and within walking distance many sight-seeing and tourist attractions, restaurants and shops. The bungalow was well equipped and very clean and tidy. Off street parking was a bonus, as was the laundry. The neighbourhood was quiet and we felt very safe venturing about. Kirby provided a great information package with recommendations of some must try eateries, and things to do. He was extremely flexible in allowing us a late check-out as we had a late flight on departure.

We will definitely stay at Kirby's Hollywood home on our next vacation to LA. I would totally recommend a stay here - I can't see how you would be disappointed. Thank you Kirby!

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in Sunset Hollywood Bungalow while visiting our son in LA. The owner was great in getting in touch with us and setting up the reservation. The bungalow was in a great location for getting around town, very walkable to the Hollywood/Highland metro, which was super easy to use and get around on. Also as well as using zipcar, as the owner suggested, Uber in LA is great and would strongly suggest using it rather than a cab...use the 'X' level for great value. The bungalow itself was perfect. It was just my husband and I, so the 1 bedroom was great. Comfortable bed, great towels and amenities and the bungalow itself was in great shape, very clean and very nicely appointed. Great outdoor area with a grill and table and chairs. Would recommend it! The owner was fantastic in providing recommendations for whatever you were interested in. When we come back to LA we will definitely try to stay there again.

The best place ever

  • 5 out of 5
I love this place. A perfect central location to everything in a quiet neighborhood close to hustle but far enough away. No worries about parking either, a real treat. I felt so at home that my family and I didn't want to leave. I could live there. Kirby was so friendly and left us all the information, guides and tips for everything to do, see, eat, and explore. All the amenities in a beautiful little bungalow. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. I will be back.

Fantastic bungalow next to everything..

  • 5 out of 5
Loved this place and will definitely stay here again. The property is very clean and well maintained. Kirby provided us with excellent recommendations and instructions to get the most from his bungalow. I would definitely recommend this property to everyone that I know. The backyard patio was an excellent surprise and a great place to enjoy in the evenings. We enjoyed touring the Hollywood area, the farmers market, Griffith Observatory, Runyon Canyon, Santa Monica Beach and seeing a dodger's game in person.

This place is a great place to stay for your LA adventures. Very private and quiet - behind the main house. Comfortable and clean. Walking distance to many things. Backyard space beautiful. Would stay here again.

Wicked Awesome Trip

  • 5 out of 5
First I'd like to thank Kirby for being such a great host. He's been doing this for a while and knows how to accomodate any size of visiting group.

I visited L.A. with 2 of my brothers and my cousin. The bungalow was awesome to stay at with everything and anything you need readily available on a vacation.


The location for great and central to a lot of main attractions of L.A.

For a bunch of young guys visting L.A we did appreciate the free wifi, HD channels and the seperate beds we got to sleep in. Located just a few blocks away from Hollywood Blvd. it was very convenient to pre-drink and go there to party lol !!!!

Kirby was a great host and you could alway fire him a text if you needed anything or had any questions about the place or area.

Staying here was a great bang for your $$$$$.

Notes:
Solar Powered Home. Ask the owner for suggestions about restaurants and attractions. Fantastic restaurants nearby. You won't necessarily need to rent/hire a car. I recommend it because Los angeles is big, but many guests stay at the Bungalow without a car of their own and are amazed at the centrality of the location.
