DILLARD'S POOL HOUSE IN GRIFFITH PARK, CLOSE TO STUDIOS, LOS FELIZ

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Burbank - Dillard's Pool House

spacious one bedroom, semi-detached pool house on a large estate, nr studios

Dillard’s Pool House is a spacious one bedroom, semi-detached pool house on a large estate abutting Griffith Park. A perfect holiday spot or oasis from work, just minutes from Los Feliz and Silver Lake, and walking distance from NBC, CBS, Warner Bros, Disney…

You enter the estate through the original riverside gate of Bette Davis’ house Riverbottom. Your front door is just across the great lawn in the organic gardens with butterflies and birds, and hammocks to relax in. A designer couch and outside sitting area at your front door, just steps away from the salt water pool and spa, Dillard’s Pool House is in the hart of the estate.

The charming sash windows of the LIVING ROOM look out on the half acre lawn and the foothills of Mount Hollywood. The room is light and airy with tile floor. there is a new couch that can fold out as a second bed The hammock adds a whimsical note to the sitting area. Apple TV, big fluffy rug and original art make it perfect for relaxing after a long splash in the pool. There is WiFi throughout the estate.

The BEDROOM has a queen bed and a custom headboard perfect to lean on and tuck in to a juicy novel well into the night. The light from the Moroccan lamp patterns the walls. It has plenty of closet space and a desk to write letters home on. There is charming imported furniture dotted about.

The BATHROOM is huge. Large enough to entertain in while you lounge in the bathtub! There is a washing machine and a dryer, (although in Sothern California the clothes dry just as fast on the rack as in the machine) the custom shower curtain adds a splash of playful pattern.

Dillard House is named after one of Bette Davis’ favorite leading men; Preston Dillard played by Henry Fonda in the famous 1938 movie Jezebel. Rivergate ESTATE is a community of houses that enjoy massive organic gardens, a almost half acre lawn with an abundance of butterflies and birds, saltwater pool and spa, fire pit, ping pong and fountain area; and Wi-Fi throughout. O’Leary’s Cottage is at the far end of the long lawn and abuts Griffith Park.

The NEIGHBORHOOD upscale and residential. Many of the large houses have private stables and it is common to see cowboys riding in the streets. We are just a few miles from Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Atwater (two exits on the freeway, about 5 minutes). We are bicycling distance from the studios (NBC, CBS, Warner Bros, Disney, Nickelodeon …). Additionally, there are four golf courses very near, as well as Travel Town, the LA Zoo, The Autry Museum, several horse riding facilities and playgrounds, Pickwick ice-skating and bowling and of course the wildlife and 52 miles of hiking and horse riding trails in the park.

Don’t let the rural setting and the hooting of the owls fool you, we are still in the heart of the city and you should be aware that you can sometimes hear the freeway, helicopters, dogs and sirens typical of city living. I mention it because it seems out of place while you lounge in the sun on the lawn feeling like you are out in the country.

The City just received a billion dollars and is redeveloping the LA River . There are great cycling trails and running tracks throughout the neighborhood. Downtown Los Angeles is about 15 minutes away, depending a little on the infamous LA traffic (there is a shortcut through the park along Riverside Drive that is very pretty and cuts out some of the traffic).

Burbank and Glendale are home to loads of shopping including the Americana (a high end outdoor mall with fountain, fine restaurants and events). A Pavilions supermarket is one of the finest around and within walking distance.

+++ Original review posted on airbnb.com +++



Amy warmly welcomed us into her sweet haven in LA's horse country with provisions in our fridge and a loaf of home-baked bread to ease the transition of arriving late at night in a strange city...the pool house is cheerful and functional, the pool itself refreshing and the big green lawn with shade trees the perfect view from our patio. We loved the energy of young children and other guests with whom we shared this large property. Amy's concern for our comfort was reflected in her responding quickly to our questions and in filling our requests.

We feel very fortunate to have found this gem!

Fabulous Location

  • 5 out of 5
I can't think of a better place to stay when on a sightseeing trip to Los Angeles -- especially when touring the studios or visiting Griffith Park. Most were easy to get to without hitting the freeway traffic! The property was as beautiful and restful as described; the owner a wonderful resource. There's easy access to Ralph's (grocery), Trader Joe's, casual restaurants. I've been telling all my friends to stay there!

Beautiful, Relaxing, Comfortable, Perfect!

We did not want to leave! Absolutely beautiful property. We were surprised by just how much space we had in each room. The hammock in the living room makes such a wonderful addition for a vacation home. The location is so convenient to the freeways and main roads, yet you feel like you are in an oasis from city life. We will definitely be back! And hope to bring friends and family to rent the other houses on the property at the same time. Amy and her family were just truly wonderful!

Fabulous house!

  • 5 out of 5
We love this rental!!! It is so perfect as truly a home away from home. The owner is such a lovely, kind individual who saw to all of our requests(which were minimal) as this house/pool/Jacuzzi are all one needs while vacationing in the LA area. Located in a very safe area of million dollar homes. Wish we didn't have to leave. I could stay there the rest of my life and be so happy. Close to all major hwys and easy to navigate. We will be back :). Wish we were still there!!!

Super great!

  • 5 out of 5
We had an amazing stay at Dillard's Pool House. The accommodations looked like the pictures (except better!) and were clean, comfortable and beautiful. It was so relaxing to stay on such a large property with horses and a pool. Amy and her family were extremely hospitable, and the location was close to everywhere we wanted to be. Would happily return!
