GORGEOUS 1918 HOLLYWOOD BUNGALOW 1

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Hollywood

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

Lights! Camera! Location! Our historic Hollywood bungalows are located in the heart of Hollywood and the gateway to the Hollywood Hills and feature all the amenities of home. Tucked away just minutes from the Hollywood sign, each bungalow is a two bedroom, one bath that comfortably sleeps four people and with the pullout sofas can accommodate up to six. The bungalows are conveniently located between all the major movie studios, attractions, venues, restaurants, sites and have quick and easy access to the Los Angeles metro and freeways.

You will be greeted with a complementary bottle of wine and chocolates along with coffee, teas and sweeteners. Enjoy our Hollywood Bungalows manual that includes everything from our favorite restaurants, hiking trails and tourist activities.

There is no reason to drive or cab it to some of our favorite spots such as Musso and Frank Grill, Hollywood’s oldest existing restaurant built one year after our bungalows in 1919, or Amoeba Music, the world’s largest independent record store.

The bungalow is just two blocks from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and three blocks from Sunset Boulevard. Take a stroll to visit Hollywood & Highland, home of the Academy Awards. While there, check out movie stars’ hand and foot prints at the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater. For the young (and young at heart) enjoy some of Hollywood's hippest nightlife just two to three blocks away.

We're a five-minute drive to most of Hollywood's major film studios, with daily studio tours and show tapings. For a full day of fun, we are also just a five-minute drive to Universal Studios and City Walk.

If you are still weighing your vacation options, remember that vacation rentals are a wonderful way to reduce the cost of any vacation or work trip. The home has a full kitchen with china, cutlery, and all normal kitchen utensils and of course a microwave for warming your doggy bag treasure from your trendy Los Angeles restaurant visit. Stock our home with breakfast food, drinks, and light meals for your stay and save a bundle in LA.

We promise our bright and charming bungalow, originally commissioned in 1918 by Cecil B. DeMille to provide upscale housing for some of Hollywood’s early royalty, will be a highlight of your trip to Los Angeles. According to local historians, many of the silent film stars of the 1920's such as Charlie Chaplin, Richard Dix, Clara Bow, and Dorothy Gish were guests of these homes. Now lovingly restored, our vacation properties offer you a fun chance to sleep where legends have slept. We hope that our gorgeous little hideaway will become your very cool, LA home, away from home.

Bon voyage and we hope to see you here in Hollywood!

About Debra Gainor

Originally from San Antonio, I moved to Los Angeles in the mid 90's. I worked in production where I met my husband, Glenn. We settled into the Hollywood Hills where we are raising our children. I'm a big fan of our community and always wanted to be an emissary for those who want to learn more about where we live and what's so much fun about it. Some of the things I love most are summer nights at the Hollywood Bowl and getting an outdoor table on Hollywood Blvd. to watch the Hollywood Holiday parade right after Thanksgiving!

Why Debra Gainor chose Hollywood

I live in a 1920's home in the Hollywood Hills with my husband and daughters. I was looking for a place to purchase near my home to turn into a vacation rental. I have admired this bungalow since moving to the Hollywood area. When the opportunity came to purchase this gorgeous bungalow, I new it had to be mine. I have done several upgrades since purchasing this property such as central air and heat and tankless water heater. I hope to share with you one day.

What makes this house unique

I love the history of Hollywood. I worked in the film industry for several years. My husband Produces films and studied film history. These homes were right up our alley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location of the bungalow was wonderful, walking distance from almost everywhere! The house was well fitted, charming and surrounded by lovely lemon trees. Debra was a gracious host, and the visitor's guide provided by her is really useful - especially for first time visitors. If you're looking to see Hollywood/Sunset Blvd, this would be a great place to hang your hat.

Wonderful bungalow, wonderful vacations

  • 5 out of 5
We did have a great time in L.A. This bungalow is very comfortable and cozy. Our family travelled with our one year old baby and I say that all of us enjoyed very much. The owner received us at the first day and she was always available for everything. She is also very polite and friendly. The kitchen is functional, everything is there. We even cooked our baby's meals there. The decoration is beautiful, you feel like you're really at home. The neighborhood is very quiet and you can find almost everything in a walk distance. I do recommend staying there and I hope we can come back soon!
Sincerely, Stefany Fontes

Fantastic location, property, and parking!!

  • 5 out of 5
1st visit to LA with young daughter and parent's. Location was perfect! Close to Burbank, Studio City, Glendale and in town!! Property was well maintained, felt safe and at home. Private parking was a plus! Walked to stores and dinner. This bungalow was truly "a home away from home!"

Bungalow Filled with Entertainment and Relaxtion.

  • 5 out of 5
After viewing the photos and location of this Hollywood Bungalow, I knew that I had to stay at this place. Debra, the landlord, was incredibly sincere and courteous. Pursuing this further, she gave me a tour of the bungalow and informed me about everything I needed to know. Debra has everything neatly organized, and if you are looking for a perfect getaway spot, you have found it at this Hollywood Bungalow. I would highly encourage you to get into contact with her as soon as possible. You don't come into contact with wonderful landlords or places that often anymore. Take advantage of this opportunity SOON.

Lovely and central

  • 4 out of 5
This villa was perfect for our family of four from Norway! We loved the way it was furnished, the location and amenities. Walking distance to supermarkets, Sunday Farmers market, Hollywood Boulevard - what more can you ask for? Debra was of great help and did her best to answer our questions and also gave us advice about what and where to visit. There is actually nothing bad to say about this bungalow. It was everything we hoped for and a bit more.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
I got to stay about one month at this beautiful Hollywood bungalow and simply enjoyed every single second of it. It truly became my home away from home, not least to the constant effort of its owner, Debra, who just takes very good care of the bungalow and its guests. She is always right there to help with any questions or problems that may arise. And the bungalow is simply beautiful. It is so filled with light and absolutely well equipped with everything you might need to make your stay in LA as comfortable as possible. I already stayed at Debra's other Hollywood bungalow last year, which was definitely equally as great and thus recommendable, this property however, has the benefit of a private parking spot, which comes in very handy, if you drive a rental car. Yet, it is also very easy to get around from the bungalow's location by foot. I just love this place - and the city - beyond words and I cannot wait to come back next year. Thanks so much for everything, Debra!

Better Than Any Hotel!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband Tom and I stayed in this charming bungalow for two nights in Sept. 2013, and found it to be a wonderful home away from home, much better than staying in another ho-hum, just-like-the-others hotel. This unique bungalow boasts a real flavor of Hollywood, in location as well as in décor! We really appreciated the strong spray of relaxing hot water from the oversized rain-shower head each morning to wake us up -- great shower! The two color flat-screen TVs were perfect for watching the Broncos beat the Raiders 37-21, and if we'd wanted to cook, it would have been fun to use the antique range in the charming 1920s kitchen. All other kitchen appliances were 2013 era, making it perfect. I also enjoyed Debra's collection of books about Hollywood, a great way to learn some quick history of the area. We walked to restaurants, saw the famous stars on the sidewalk on our way, and enjoyed the close proximity to our business appointments in the area, too. The driveway parking space and lockable gate is another plus you won't find elsewhere. We also own a VRBO (#137911), in Breckenridge, CO, & invite Debra and her family to come see it and enjoy a gorgeous mountain vacation! Thanks for making our Hollywood stay so awesome, Debra! This is a great home for travelers who want to stay in the thick of fun in Southern CA!
