Beautiful home, a little dusty, not wheelchair accessible

  • 4 of 5

James' home is beautiful, with the top floor and third floor master bedroom views of the city, along with the gorgeous blue-tiled heated pool and hot tub being the highlights. I was there for a retreat with a nonprofit board, and one of our members uses a wheelchair - folks should note the elevator in this house does not fit a wheelchair, and there are three steps leading up to the front door of the house. Also, while the place was clean, it definitely seemed dusty, and the copper kitchen needs a good polish. And there seem to be bees living in the walls of the fourth floor, there were dead bees everywhere. The decor of the house is definitely memorable. The bathrooms don't have any toiletries beyond toilet paper and hand soap. And the windows don't open, unfortunately. Internet access was fairly reliable. The kitchen had plenty of pots and pans but hardly any mugs, and for some reason, no can opener. The fridge is also a bit small if you have groceries for a large group. My colleagues and I were cooking, so this threw us off a bit. The good news is James, the owner, is very responsive, the house is very spacious and easily fit eight of us, and we really did have a good time enjoying the views and the pool and hot tub. And a huge bonus that it's dog friendly, too!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback - it really helps us! Please note that we do not advertise the home as being wheelchair or handicap friendly. As far as the windows, unfortunately our homeowners insurance co. requires that the windows and doors on that side of the home remain locked for safety reasons (it's a 4 story drop!). The other side of the home (on the pool side) has several enormous double french doors which open up to let the breeze. We are certain that the bees are on the outside of the home - there are insects and animals in the Hollywood Hills because we are so far up- but we will look into this for sure! Yes, we are more of a vacation rental and do not regularly provide all of the amenities that you may find in a hotel, but James, the owner, is only a phone call away and is always happy to resolve any issues or provide extras if need be. We have a full time housekeeper that we could also have sent over at any time. We do believe that the uniqueness of the villa, the design and the amazing views make this home stand out in the Hollywood Hills - also happy to accommodate people's pets as we know how difficult it is to travel with them!

Stunning Hollywood Hills

  • 5 of 5

My family and another family traveled together and thought this would be a fun place to stay with our teenagers. Wow, what a fantastic place. Four stories of fun to capture anyone’s imagination. Pretty backyard with pool and spa, fantastic views, gorgeous neighborhood, a retro elevator, and close to everything. The Magic Castle is a blast if you are able to get in; we did the family brunch on Sunday and it’s always great.

So amazing

Came here on a girls trip for Memorial Day weekend and had an amazing time. This property has the most wonderful views and it is definitely one of a kind. I only wish we could have stayed longer!

The Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this villa for our 30th anniversary. We wanted a Hollywood getaway and that's exactly what we got. Stunning views, privacy but proximity to Hollywood, every amenity imaginable (the steam shower was our favorite), friendly owner and booking agent and more unique than any home we've ever seen. Definitely coming back!

Father's Day Surprise

  • 5 of 5

My son rented this beautiful villa for our family on Father's Day weekend. We were 6 people - my son, his wife, his children, my wife and I - and the house was so large, it could have fit many more. In all my years visiting Los Angeles, I have never seen a creative masterpiece such as this. I was completely blown away. From the hand-welded elevator (which was very helpful for my wife and I), to full suits of armor, to a room whose walls were completely covered in playing cards, the artistry of the owner was visible everywhere. We felt like we had journeyed into the past, yet with all the modern conveniences. Whenever we had questions (as it was a very large house to navigate), there was someone right next door available to help. I think I had as much fun as the kids did. We hardly had to leave the place, we were so entertained by the house itself. A perfect Father's Day gift - we had a wonderful weekend.
