3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home Walking Distance To The Grove!

We are a 100% non-smoking property inside and out (including balconies and yards). If anyone in your group smokes, we are not the right property for you.

We require a 5 night minimum for stays with possible exceptions at owner's discretion. Shorter days will be subject to additional charges if exceptions are made. We appreciate your understanding.

Please visit our website at LALuxRents.com to see all our properties.

Please note, rates are based on occupancy of 6. For occupancy over 6 (adults or children), there is a $30 per person, per night charge.

This spacious 1600 square foot apartment is the lower unit of a small historic 1936 apartment building just a few blocks west of The Grove shopping center and the Original Farmer's Market.

The upper unit is the same layout and is also available for rentals. Please feel free to inquire even if the lower unit is booked.

The area is a designated historic district and our building maintains all the beauty and history of the neighborhood while boasting all the comforts of modern living.

Hardwood floors throughout the unit give warmth and the feeling of home to the unit. Double paned windows with low-e glass provide both conservation of energy and even more quiet inside from our quiet outside neighborhood.

The unit has been newly renovated and includes a brand new kitchen, central heat & air, and is immaculately clean. A sweet front yard gives you some private greenery all your own and there is even a lemon tree shared by the other 2 tenants in the building.

2 bedrooms feature large eastern king size beds and the 3rd bedroom features 2 double beds. Each bed has crisp white linens, accent colored warm blankets and a quilt for those cooler nights. There is plenty of closet space for travelers as well and flat screen televisions in each bedroom. Both blinds and curtains in the bedrooms allow travelers to choose the amount of light they want to wake up to. Each bedroom also has an overhead ceiling fan to help circulate air on our cool los angeles nights. An ipod, iphone dock and charger on the clock radio will charge your phone. Sounds of nature are also available on this clock to lull you to sleep. Each bedroom closet holds two warm terry bathrobes for your lounging comfort.

The kitchen has all full sized appliances including stainless steel refrigerator/ freezer with through the door filtered ice & water, range and over the range microwave and full 24' dishwasher and a double bowled farmhouse sink with garbage disposal. Quartz countertops add elegance to the kitchen design and are extremely durable. The kitchen is well appointed with service for 8, cookware, and more. You can easily cook a full gourmet meal in this kitchen or just as easily heat up your leftovers from the night before out on the town. Hand soap, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, newly wrapped sponge and a jumbo roll of paper towels are provided as well free of charge.

The master bathroom boasts a separate tub and large shower double sinks and commode. The second, smaller bathroom has a shower, one sink and commode. Each bathroom is finished in simple and clean white metro tile. Plenty of white fluffy towels are provided as well. A starter pack of shampoo, conditioner and bath gel is provided in each bathroom as well as 3 rolls of toilet tissue and one box of kleenex. Hair dryers are also provided.

A washer and dryer in the unit make it easy to bring less clothes and go home with them clean. Laundry detergent and dryer sheets are provided.

A decorative fireplace in the living room and wedding cake crown mouldings add character and history to this wonderful home.

Each of the 4 televisions feature basic cable and roku boxes with crackle and netflix so you can relax, watch tv or a film. A blue ray dvd player is available in the living room. High speed free internet service via wifi is available throughout the unit. A printer is available as well to print out your boarding passes or any other business needs you have.

Amenities for the little ones are available upon request. Including a pack n play, stroller, and high chair.

About Sharlotte Blake

I am originally from the East Coast via Philadelphia & New York and settled in Los Angeles in 1999. I met my husband, originally from LA, in Los Angeles and we have a young son. I have worked in Entertainment for much of my adult life in both Music and Film. I also love design and real estate and owning Vacation Rentals has been a wonderful experience for me.

Sharlotte Blake purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Sharlotte Blake chose West Hollywood

We bought this property in 2001 after living in the neighborhood for years. We lovingly renovated and restored it to its 1936 grandeur and added all the conveniences of modern living.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of this property cannot be beat. We are truly in the heart of everything yet still in a quiet residential neighborhood. You can walk to a lot but come home to the peaceful tree-lined street where neighbors walk their kids and dogs and chat with each other as locals do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to express our thanks for letting us use your accomodations -- it is in a beautiful locale! Thank you as well for going the extra mile and sending back the swimsuits we left behind...we will certainly give you a shout when we return again (hopefully next year).

Spacious, clean digs; wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

We rented the apartment for a one-week family vacation in L.A. in March and it did not disappoint. The place is very much as advertised: clean, well situated and amazingly spacious (I mean REALLY spacious, the photos don't really do it justice). Beds are large and amazingly comfortable, linens white, clean and crisp. Despite its proximity to a main street, the apartment is very quiet at night and we all had amazing sleeps. Multiple Roku-equipped TVs kept our kids (11 and 15) happy and out of each others' hair. The apartment is an easy walking distance to lots of great restos--we particularly loved the FIsh Grill on Beverly Blvd (Kosher Mexican!) and Tinga on La Brea for tacos. Milk on Beverly has amazing bespoke ice cream and baked treats. For cheap, varied meals and local colour the farmer's market in the Grove can't be beat. Other nights we bought prepared food at a walkable Whole Foods and ate in the apartment. If you want a latte in the mornings the Coffee Bean and Tea leaf is a quick two-block stroll.

Self-serve check-in/check-out using combination lock was a breeze. Sharlotte was a friendly, attentive but non-obtrusive host. She dropped by to make sure everything was all right and dropped (clean fluffy) beach towels off the same day we requested them. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the apartment to anyone who wants a great, central location in the LA area.

Great Location, Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

This property really is in a prime location next to good shopping and great food. The inside looks just like it does in the photos and we were not disappointed one bit. The building is a bit older, but has been fixed up very nicely. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us and we were very comfortable the entire time.

The furniture and accessories were perfect for this space, kudos to the designer! It had pretty much everything we needed for our trip. The front bathroom/shower was a bit small, but served it's purpose. The second bathroom is huge and makes up for the smaller one. The floors are a bit creaky, but not too annoying. The beds and bedding were comfortable and we slept great. Plenty of lighting both at night and during the day with the windows open. Overall we loved the place!

A word of caution, as stated above, the building is older, so sound does travel through the walls and ceiling/floors. We arrived in LA a little late on Friday night and were excited to be there, so we stayed up late in the dining room/kitchen area talking, telling stories and getting a little noisy. Unfortunately, our neighbors above heard us. We also had a parking issue because we rented a second space and when we arrived the neighbors above parked where we were instructed to park. It was late, so I just parked behind them, which didn't seem like it would be an issue since my car wasn't blocking the street. Sharlotte came by the next morning to discuss both issues and made it very clear that we had to be quieter or we would have to find somewhere else to stay. She moved our neighbor's car to their designated spot, and parking was not an issue the rest of our trip. She said I could have received a ticket for the way I parked since I was blocking the sidewalk, but luckily I didn't. After that, we didn't hear from Sharlotte again.

At first she was very upset about those issues (particularly us being too noisy), but after talking to her, she was very pleasant and we shared a couple laughs before she left. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, but do make sure you are mindful of your volume.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kyle for the great review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and grateful that you pointed out the noise issue. I try to make all our guests understand this yet we do still occasionally have some problems despite these efforts. You are 100% right. It's an older building and sound can travel between the units, especially late at night when all else is quiet. We do our best to let our guests know this and avoid renting to folks coming to LA to party in our property as much as possible. We try to screen our guests for these potential issues and require all the adults in each rental group to read and sign our rental agreement so no one can say "I didn't know the rules". Our property primarily caters to families so drunk late night arrivals and parties are not right for our property. I truly appreciate a review that helps us let future guests know the type of property we are to help them decide if they are appropriate guests for us! Thank again and thanks for understanding my concern about the late night rowdiness on your first night stay with us!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The texts and the photos perfectly describe the property and Sharlotte was fast and helpful once we needed her. Couldn’t be more pleased with my stay. I recommend it and would rent it again in a future visit to LA.

Los Angeles and San Fran Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This listing is very nice accomodations. it is listed exactly accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, very quiet street. walking distance to the grove, inwhich is an excellent place to shop and purchase groceries as well. The property is very clean and well maintained. My daughter fell in love with the decor, colors and layout of each room. I would recommend this property to family and friends. We went to Beverly Hills Rodeo Drive, Greystone Mansion, Hollywood Blvd and Chinese Theatre, drove up to the Hollywood Sign. Went to the Grove 3 times. My daughter wants to stay at this same location the next time we go on vacation. My boys also loved the property.

Cozy and Nice apartment with great location.

  • 4 of 5

Hi! Our stay at this apartment was very nice, the place is very warm and cozy, great decoration and facilites, the kitchen, the laundry and the appliances are very complete as well, the cons are the small bathroom is too small, you can barely fit in, instead of the big bathroom is very nice. Also the beds are uncomfortable, we had trouble sleeping beacuse of this. The hostess had everything under control but a bit too much, she entered the house while we were gone and inspected everything so this was a little uncomfortable for our privacy, she showed up at least 3 times on the 7 days that we stayed at the house to check if we parked well, if we throw out the garbage, if we had the door locked, etc.. We had problems with the internet connection and she resolve that soon enough so this was a plus, but as a recommendation I suggest to give more privacy to the guests that will stay at this house, because overall the house is a very nice place to stay at Los Angeles and great location also.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that these guests felt that they were not given enough privacy. I have actually never heard that concern from any other guest in any of the 3 properties I own. I am a very hands on owner and stop by the property regularly to deal with all 3 units in the building, take the trash cans in and out, and maintenance issues. I did see them 3 times in the 8 days they were there. #1 to stop by and say, "Hello" the day after they checked in. Most guests appreciate this as I can answer any questions regarding the neighborhood and apartment in person during this standard visit. #2 to collect monies owed for an additional guest in their party. This visit was requested as they preferred to pay cash rather than electronically, and #3 to try and repair the internet problems. It was on this visit that in going from the unit to the basement that I noticed the back door had been left unlocked and pointed this out to them for their security. My other visits to the property were not related to these guests. I have no interest in inspecting people's property during their stay so why they felt their property had been inspected is perplexing to me. I'm sorry that my presence at the property felt intrusive to these guests as it was meant to be helpful in all 3 circumstances. I will address their concerns about the beds as soon as possible. Most of my guests say they are the most comfortable beds they have ever slept in so this comment certainly surprises me. If the mattresses need to be turned or replaced that will be taken care of immediately. Yes, they are correct, the 2nd bathroom is small and only can accomodate one person at a time. it is the only room in the home that is not very spacious. I hope these guests realize the purpose for my visits and that makes them feel better about their stay.

Location! Location! You can enjoy all that LA and Hollywood have to offer minutes away and come 'home' to a quiet residential neighborhood in the heart of it all!

We are centrally located between the San Fernando Valley and the Beach. Only 7 miles from the Film Studios in Burbank (Warner Brothers & Universal) and 10 miles to the beach and the airport in the other direction. We are right around the corner from Paramount Studios as well as CBS Studios.

Located just Southwest of Hollywood and a few blocks from West Hollywood,

A 5 minute drive to the East is the quaint Larchmont Village. A 'local' spot for a fabulous Sunday Farmer's market, many restaurants and great coffee shops & ice cream shops as well as some wonderful local specialty shops.

You are only 2 miles from the Heart of Hollywood. See the sights on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, stop by Grauman's Chinese Theatre to see the handprints of the Stars, The Wax Museum and Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum are always great fun as well.

For shopping and the occasional celebrity spotting take a 5 minute stroll West to The Grove at Farmers Market, only a few blocks away. Next to the Grove is Pan Pacific Park where you can run, relax, and picnic. There are several playgrounds for the kids, and many fields for soccer, baseball & more. The Original Farmer's Market, established in 1934 is nearby at 3rd & Fairfax. It has both fresh produce every day as well as great restaurants of all types, from Parisian crepes to Mexican tacos, to Indonesian fare, Brazilian dishes and more. The whole family can find something they like with the variety at this outdoor market.

A morning hike at nearby Runyan Canyon is a must for the vacationer as is a scenic drive on Mullholland Drive. Lookout points along the drive will give you amazing views you've only seen in the movies of both Los Angeles and 'the Valley'. Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Six Flags at Magic Mountain are all within a 45 minute drive. Universal Studios City Walk & Theme Park are a mere 15 minutes away. You can even take the subway there from Hollywood!

There are many great restaurants at The Grove as well as on Beverly Boulevard and LaBrea that are within walking distance.

If you are interested in sporting events, theater, concerts or other live music events, we are located within 5-15 minutes from the Staples Center & Nokia theatre, Dodger's stadium, the world famous Sunset Strip, the Kodak Theater (home to the Oscar's), the Pantages Theatre, the Wiltern, the El Rey, the Hollywood Palladium and many many more.

We are equidistant from the Bob Hope airport in Burbank and LAX International airport. We are about 10 miles from horseback riding at Griffith Park and 10 miles to the Beaches in the other direction.

Explore the 'non-Hollywood' part of LA too nearby and treat yourself to the rich traditions and cuisines in nearby Thai town, Korea Town, China Town & Little Tokyo.

Los Angeles also boasts a thriving art and cultural community and we are nearby the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art as well as the Geffen at MOCA, the Disney Center, The LA Museum of Natural History, the LA Tar Pits & Paige Museum and the Los Angeles Zoo.

You can't beat our location to explore all LA has to offer without spending your day in the car. We are in the center of it all!
