Sunset Hollywood Bungalow 1 was built in 1920 and renovated completely in 2012 to make this a dream vacation or months-long rental.
It has two big bedrooms, a huge bright and cheerful living room, and a bathroom with tub & shower. There are huge, new t.v.s, bedding for 8 people, and all kitchen amenities.

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.

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.
My office is nearby, in the a landmark building. For those of you who know who Howard Hughes was, my office is in his former headquarters in Hollywood. My actual office was his screening room--if you saw 'The Aviator' with Leonardo diCaprio, the screening room is where Hughes secluded himself and, well, let's just say it's a great irony that I'm a psychotherapist working amidst the spirits of that past.
Kirby Tepper purchased this house in 2001
The Sunset Hollywood Bungalows are 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 rear (smaller) Bungalow built from the ground up, so it's brand new.
Walking distance to major tourist attractions, tour buses, subways and L.A. metro, restaurants, shopping.
Very clean (see reviews for confirmation), very private.
Off-street, free parking within feet of the front door (unheard of in Los Angeles, trust me!)
We had a great stay in this lovely bungalow. Kirby was terrific to work with in advance and left a great list of ideas upon arrival. The location is perfect for many attractions. We loved having a space to park. The backyard was under construction while we were there, but it was of no real consequence. It will be lovely when complete. The photos are very accurate.
Photos and description are accurate with exception the front bedroom now has mattress single beds instead of airbeds as described in the photo and there is a second full bathroom (non-pictured). The property was clean and well-equipped with a great remodel of the front bathroom. My wife and two kids found the space very accommodating for our 3 night stay in this part of Los Angeles. Kirby provided a very detailed multi-page recommendation of things to do and restaurants (which proved very good and within walking distance).
My daughter and I had a wonderful week staying in this well equipped bungalow. It is within walking distance to everything you might need. The owner, Kirby, is very helpful and accommodating. He provided a very informative list of restaurants, things to do, places to visit and all the information we would need about the house prior to our visit and then had another copy with the key when we arrived.
There is a great outdoor grill, washer and dryer, and on-site parking. Kirby also provides many things that normally you would have to purchase in a rental; i.e., coffee, filters, laundry detergent, soaps, towel paper, etc.
The kitchen is well stocked with everything. We hosted a dinner party one night and couldn't find the cork screw. Kirby came over that same evening with one for us! He is available and willing to supply whatever you need to make your stay more inviting.
The house is under some updates right now with new siding and a brand new bathroom. We would recommend this bungalow and look forward to staying here again the next time we are in Los Angeles.
It was great having a little back yard to enjoy and a parking space; what a bonus! The kitchen was well appointed and well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. Kirby, the owner is extremely nice and responsive to any questions you may have.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Hollywood at this location. Everything was completely as described, and the owner was very helpful with her quick response time, helpful hints and suggestions, and availability. Great place to stay!
This bungalow was on a quiet street right near the Hollywood sights. It was clean, tasteful and convenient. Kirby was incredibly accommodating and provided excellent information on local restaurants, attractions, markets, etc. We had two exchange students from Madrid with us and they loved it.
The Sunset Hollywood Bungalow is located in a family-oriented neighborhood surrounded by everything Hollywood has to offer. It is a couple of minutes south of Mann's Chinese theater and Hollywood/Highland, 15 min. drive from downtown L.A., and between 20 to 40 min. (depending on traffic) to Santa Monica beach area.
Other Activities: racquetball, shopping, basketball court, boating, snowboarding, spa
No refunds as of 30 days prior to arrival.
