About Sharlotte Blake

I am originally from the East Coast via Philadelphia & New York and settled in Los Angeles in 1999. I met my husband, originally from LA, in Los Angeles and we have a young son. I have worked in Entertainment for much of my adult life in both Music and Film. I also love design and real estate and owning Vacation Rentals has been a wonderful experience for me.

Why Sharlotte Blake chose La Brea

We bought this property in 2001 after living in the neighborhood for years. We lovingly renovated and restored it to its 1936 grandeur and added all the conveniences of modern living.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of this property cannot be beat. We are truly in the heart of everything yet still in a quiet residential neighborhood. You can walk to a lot but come home to the peaceful tree-lined street where neighbors walk their kids and dogs and chat with each other as locals do.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family loved our stay in this three bedroom apartment. We stayed for a week and chose not to rent a car. Location is excellent. Its close to The Grove, restaurants and public transport. We caught the local bus to Hollywood, Downtown, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica and never had to walk more than a few blocks. Supermarkets are also within walking distance. The apartment is clean and very well appointed in terms of appliances and supplies. Guest are encouraged to maintain the excellent standard of cleanliness to ensure the same comfort for incoming guests, so expect to do a light tidy up on checkout. Our hostess was very friendly and thoughtfully provided us with lots of local knowledge. We loved our stay and hope to return.

A wonderful home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed for nearly a week and the whole experience was wonderful. This was our first time to use HomeAway but it won't be our last. The property was clean and lovely. There was plenty of room. The kitchen had everything that we needed to cook meals for nights that we did not enjoy the local restaurants. There was a large bathroom that we used the majority of the time and a smaller one that was used only as needed. All five of us were able to shower in the morning without running out of hot water. Traffic in LA is something that we did not properly plan for, so we were fortunate to have a place that was centrally located. Sharlotte was quick to answer questions via text. We are already looking forward to going back.

Lacking Hospitality!

  • 2 of 5

The apartment is nice. The pictures do it justice. Good location. That being said the owner is running a business. She has a long list of rules and sticks by them. I have stayed at at least a dozen home away places, and will use them again. But if this would have been my first experience I would not. I have never had to vacuum or sweep, asked to remove stains from wash cloths. Need to buy toilet paper. Paid for early entrance and been charged extra because we dropped off our suitcases earlier.( guess we should have sat on them in the driveway). And been sent an email cause our delivery (meal) contacted her because he couldn't find the apartment. Sorry Sharlotte you really made all four ladies feel like we were a nuisance!

Owner's Response: I wrote a long winded response to this and have since deleted it as I believe our other 50+ 5 star reviews speak for themselves. This guest has irrational expectations of vacation rentals as is evidenced by the other reviews she has left on properties. She has only left 3 reviews on the 12 properties she has stayed in and appears to be of the ilk of only leaving bad reviews and no great ones. Had I been able to see the reviews she had left on her other trips prior to accepting her booking I likely would not have rented to her as it is clear she is a guest that cannot be pleased. I can say in 5 years of renting out properties to vacationers and hosting hundreds of guests, I can count on one hand the number of guests that treated me as this guest did. I'm very fortunate that my vetting process is usually quite good and this doesn't happen very often. I know I have beautiful properties and am an excellent caretaker and host. In that knowledge I will take solace and look forward to my next, more pleasant, guests including my upcoming holiday guests from Hawaii that will be spending their 4th Christmas with us in this very property!

Beautiful LA home in perfect neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Sharlotte's home. The home was extremely neat and clean and organized. The beds were all very comfortable and she has everything you need in the kitchen to cook. The condo is on the second floor and there is no third floor, so you are on the top floor which is nice. She lent us beach towels and the property came with a roll of paper towels, some toilet paper and soap and starter shampoo and conditioner and some other items like dishwashing soap and dishwasher pods and laundry detergent. She also had nice robes in the bedrooms for guests.

The area is perfect! It's a short walk away from restaurants and shops and just minutes from the Grove. If you have kids, it is just a short 10 minute walk to Pan Pacific Park which has basketball courts and a lovely playground for children. The neighborhood is safe and beautiful. It was such a convenient location! Sharlotte was very helpful whenever we had a question or needed help with anything. We loved the décor of the condo.

We will plan to stay here again when we visit LA!

Thank you, Sharlotte, for such a lovely visit!!

Location! Location! You can enjoy all that LA and Hollywood have to offer minutes away and come 'home' to a quiet residential neighborhood in the heart of it all!

We are centrally located between the San Fernando Valley and the Beach. Only 7 miles from the Film Studios in Burbank (Warner Brothers & Universal) and 10 miles to the beach and the airport in the other direction. We are right around the corner from Paramount Studios as well as CBS Studios.

Located just Southwest of Hollywood and a few blocks from West Hollywood,

A 5 minute drive to the East is the quaint Larchmont Village. A 'local' spot for a fabulous Sunday Farmer's market, many restaurants and great coffee shops & ice cream shops as well as some wonderful local specialty shops.

You are only 2 miles from the Heart of Hollywood. See the sights on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, stop by Grauman's Chinese Theater to see the hand prints of the Stars, The Wax Museum and Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum are always great fun as well.

For shopping and the occasional celebrity spotting take a 5 minute stroll West to The Grove at Farmers Market, only a few blocks away. Next to the Grove is Pan Pacific Park where you can run, relax, and picnic. There are several playgrounds for the kids, and many fields for soccer, baseball & more. The Original Farmer's Market, established in 1934 is nearby at 3rd & Fairfax. It has both fresh produce every day as well as great restaurants of all types, from Parisian crepes to Mexican tacos, to Indonesian fare, Brazilian dishes and more. The whole family can find something they like with the variety at this outdoor market.
