Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Central LA - Hollywood Hills Paradise

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 5)

EXPERIENCE THE HOLLYWOOD LIFESTYLE and relax with 180 degree canyon and city views. The creative ambience has inspired artists to write scripts and compose music for the Hollywood industry. You can count Justin Timberlake, Charlize Theron, Katy Perry and many more as your famous neighbors. The property is surrounded by tropical gardens and flower beds atop the prestigious Hollywood Hills. Indoor/outdoor flow. Sun drenched. Secluded patio. Peaceful. Hard to believe that this hidden paradise is only a stones throw from where the action is: 5 minutes to HOLLYWOOD BOWL (open-air concerts). 6 min to UNIVERSAL STUDIOS. 7 min to KODAK THEATRE (Academy Awards), WALK OF FAME and NIGHTLIFE. Visit FARMER'S MARKET, GALLERIES, RESTAURANTS + MUSEUMS. 20 min to shop on RODEO DRIVE, 45 min to swim in the PACIFIC or hike in RUNYON CANYON which is in walking distance and enjoy the most breathtaking views of all of LA!

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

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.

A great place for your LA stay!

  • 5 of 5

Frances' house is perfect! Its in a wonderful location in the Hollywood hills away from the hustle and bustle but within touching distance of all the fun LA has to offer. The house is spotless, bigger than it appears in the pictures, Frances is a great host, and everything is in perfect working order. We loved relaxing here after a busy day exploring. A perfect home!

Absolutely perfect home for your stay in LA. Location cannot be beat. The views are great. Frances was a great host, answered all of our questions, helped us with suggestions. The patio was our favorite place to hang after a day of fun. Would definitely love to stay again.

A real feel of the Hollywood lifestyle

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 loved our stay at this property. Very modern decor with beautiful garden, comfortable beds and an amazing selection of films. Perfect location RIGHT amongst the stars with great views and easy access to Warner bros, universal studios, Griffith observatory, etc... Frances the owner is there whenever needed but gives total privacy. Definitely staying here again.

Phil, Sam and family

Hollywood Hills Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I stayed in this amazing property for a few days in June. The location was amazing with easy access to Hollywood Blvd and many other ideal areas to see in LA. Frances was very accommodating and helpful with directions. The house is lovely, warm and inviting. When we return to Ca in the future, we will definitely visit Frances' house again!
