Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Central LA - 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 Los Angeles

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!)

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this property for a few nights while in LA on vacation. It was very clean and well equipped and furnished. Just a short walk to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and other attractions. Kirby was extremely accommodating throughout our stay and made sure that we were not in need of anything. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely bungalow central to lots of activities

  • 5 of 5

My three girls, 10,12, and 15 and a friend also 15, and I took a road trip from Vancouver BC to Los Angeles via Portland, the Oregon coast and San Francisco. The bungalow was a lovely place to end up after long days of driving. Clean, very attractive and within walking distance (or very short driving distance) to Trader Joe's, Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Hollywood Bowl. On site parking is very convenient. Also, we went to universal studios for the day, and I was really happy not to have to drive and park. One bus and then the studio's shuttle was lovely. I felt safe at all time (important when traveling with four girls!) and really appreciated the host's comprehensive instructions about the bungalow and advice about local attractions.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone staying in Hollywood.

Excellent Private Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this place! My husband and I stayed here while visiting family and it was fabulous! Super clean, walkable to a variety of places throughout Hollywood (we even walked to and from the Cure concert at the Bowl), private, quiet and homey. The place is stocked with everything you need and also a cute back patio with a grill that we used alot during our stay. Kirby is fantastic and flexible and was the best host. We will definitely be staying here whenever we are in town! Thanks Kirby!

Great place to stay in Hollywood

  • 5 of 5

Kirby takes great care of this property. If you need anything before or during your stay, he is very responsive. You can easily walk to tourist areas on Hollywood Boulevard. Movie studios, Griffith Park, and many other destinations are only a short drive away. At the end of the day, the bungalow has a private patio where you can relax. I have stayed here twice. (The first time was four years ago.) I had a great experience both times.

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.
