About Frances

I am an European Journalist who has been covering Hollywood for over 30 years. My life and privilege has been to interview and learn from every major Hollywood talent: their dreams, ups and downs, successes and failures... I have been visited by Catherine Zeta-Jones to Arnold Schwarzenegger to Will Ferrell just to name a few. The property has been used for fashion shots and as a movie location. For me Los Angeles means sunshine, blue wide-open sky, diversity of people, natural wonders, individuality, unimaginable cuisine and 'The sky's the limit' attitude. What I love about my property is the location: far away and yet so close to the hustle and bustle of Hollywood... from here you can quickly be anywhere the action is in minutes...or just enjoying a serene day on top of the world.

Frances purchased this house in 1975

Why Frances chose Los Angeles area

As soon as I came to Los Angeles my dream was to live on Mulholland Drive, which is for me as historic as a cathedral would be in a town in Europe. MULHOLLAND DRIVE is a painting by David Hockney. KING OF THE MOUNTAIN was a fictional movie with Dennis Hopper, Harry Hamlin and Dan Haggerty loosely based on actual Mulholland Drive racers. The films MULHOLLAND DRIVE and MULHOLLAND FALLS were named after the road. Video games GRAND THEFT AUTO and MIDNIGHT CLUB features Mulholland Drive. R.E.M.'s song ELECTROLITE was inspired by Mulholland Drive and is mentioned. TOM PETTY refers to 'glide down over Mulholland' in the hit song 'FREE FALLIN'. In LOVE AND BASKETBALL Mulholland Drive is referred to during the scene in which Q and Monica meet up outside of her bedroom after the Spring Dance. It marks the street as a dead end where couples go for privacy.

Wonderful stay in the Hollywood Hills!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent an extra long weekend in this lovely home in Hollywood Hills. It is even more spacious than it looks in the pictures, and the bedrooms are so quiet. The beds & linens are of the highest quality and we found everything so comfortable. The views from all sides are fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the garden taking in the wonderful weather and beautiful sights, right outside our door.

The location is perfect for all activities in this area. We could be on Sunset Blvd, Hollywood Blvd, or Beverly Hills within minutes. Hiking in Runyon Canyon is just around the corner. This home is located amidst all the stars' homes and it was so exciting trying to spot a few. I highly recommend this for any group of two or four people. We were with another couple and the way the bedrooms are situated, you would never even know there was anyone else in the house! We were fortunate to briefly meet the owner, Frances, who is so lovely. You will love staying here!

Loved this place! It was clean, comfortable and private in a great location. It was bright and sunny and colorful and had everything we needed. Would love to stay here again when we are in the area. Thank you Frances for your hospitality!

Most beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent visitors to LA and also lived there for a number of years in various areas. However, it was our first stay in the Hollywood Hills and we absolutely loved this place and the location. It was quiet and peaceful and nonetheless close enough to many major attractions. This time we came with a friend with whom we went to Venice, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Downtown, Silverlake, East LA. In addition we especially enjoyed walking our dog in the neighborhood and the nearby canyon. The house is equipped with all you need, it is super clean and has lots of entertainment options in terms of books and movies.

It was super easy to communicate with Frances, the neighbors were very friendly and at the same time we had all the privacy we needed.

We would definitely come back any time.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Frances we had the most wonderful time in Hollywood. Your home is just beautiful, located in one of the most fabulous places our only disappointment was that we could not stay longer! Exceptionally clean, inviting, comfortable and organised. If we have the opportunity to return to LA we know where we will be staying, it was perfect for the whole family thank you so much!

Quiet location, lovely interior, lots of film themed artefacts.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, light and spacious home from home with lots of personal touches, all film/tv themed. Much more character than your usual holiday rentals.

Beds very comfortable, bathroom clean and fresh with big shower. Only downside might be that you accessed the bathroom from the main bedroom, not a problem for us as just family sharing but might be for others iwhen using both bedrooms.

Clean and well equipped kitchen,.

Lovely little garden and patio area.

Would highly recommend.

Spectacular location, clean, comfortable, looks better than the photos.

  • 5 of 5

My family of four and I had the best time in LA and a big part of that was because of this vrbo. Literally in the Hollywood hills with a view of the Hollywood sign and close to many attractions. This place is more spacious than the photos show, the beds are very comfortable, it's quiet and safe. Highly recommend and we will be back!
