Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This is the perfect place to enjoy all that Hollywood has to offer. Walking distance to Hollywood and Highland, Mann Chinese Theater, Hollywood Walk of Fame, The Cinerama Dome, Amoeba Music, tons of restaurants, bars and nightclubs - there is literally no chance you will ever be bored in this neighborhood.

The apartment is gigantic - over 850 square feet. There is a ton of room for everything with two closets, shelves and drawers for all your stuff. There are lots of areas to relax and enjoy. First of all the private balcony gives you a birds eye view of the neighborhood and the lush garden below.

There are two "bed rooms" with a closing door - as if you're entering a deluxe hotel suite with a separate second bedroom. They are both connected to the private outdoor patio - a great space to people watch or enjoy a morning cup of fresh coffee.

The kitchen has a large breakfast nook and vintage stove. Pots, pans, silverware, a toaster, microwave, coffee pot, kettle, everything you need to prepare basic meals if you enjoy cooking - although there are numerous restaurants to suit every budget within walking distance and many of them deliver as well.

It's clean, it's comfortable, it's safe, it's fun, and it's in a great location.

About Alexander McDonald

I work in entertainment cutting commercials for television shows and movies.

Alexander McDonald purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Alexander McDonald chose Hollywood

The neighborhood is the big draw. It's walking distance to so many great places and our corner is very friendly and the neighbors are great.

The history of the property is interesting as well. I am only the third owner since 1915 when the main house was built. It was one of the first in the neighborhood. A Greek family bought it in the 70s and the father was the one who established the community garden across the street. Apparently he used to go across the street and gather ingredients while he was cooking. Neighbors come by and tell stories about him - I guess he was a bit of a character.

When I was looking at it it just felt like the kind of place I'd want my son to grow up and invite my friends and family to come over and enjoy.

What makes this apartment unique

Fantastic neighborhood, central location to visit LA, excellent value, walk to restaurants and all that Hollywood has to offer

The place is cool. But kind of old and a bit tired. For me, it was perfect. I was alone. Overall, worth the money!

A Hollywood Bargain

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 4 night stay at Alex's top floor apartment. It was clean, spacious, and close to many attractions in Hollywood. One day we took the Metro all the way to Santa Monica Pier by walking a few blocks to the station. There was even a nice city park nearby for our little dog.

The kitchen could use a few things: newer pots and pans, hot pads and hand towels, basic spices. But if you're not planning on cooking much what's there is adequate. Alex checked in when we arrived and the day we left. Otherwise, we had complete privacy and felt very much at home in this little corner of LA. It's a good, affordable option in a very expensive city.

We are light sleepers, so the street Is a bit busy for our liking. Bedding comfortable. Place could use a bit of TLC, but Alex was responsive and accomodating. Nice to find a place we can take our dog.

Home sweet home

This unit is cozy, clean, well maintained and in a wonderful area making access to all of Hollywood a breeze. Most most importantly the owners are more accessible than any other owner I've ever dealt with. We would gladly return.

Great Location and Fair Hollywood Property

  • 4 of 5

Walking distance to just about anything you'd want to see in touristy Hollywood. We chose this property so we could walk to the Hollywood Bowl, but also we're able to stroll to the Sunday Farmer's Market and Cineramadome.

I've stayed at Homeaways in Hollywood proper several times now and I found this of fair quality for the area. Many of the homes here are quite old and run down. If you're looking for state-of-the-art, choose another area of LA.

Biggest downfall of this stay was that when we arrived at 8:15pm, the unit was probably about 110 degrees. There is a window unit in the front room only. It had not been turned on prior to our arrival. While this would probably be a non-issue most of the year, we happened to visit in one of the hottest weeks of the year. We moved the bed across the room directly in front of the unit to be able to sleep the first night. After running the a/c and dispersing the cool air with the provider fan, the main living area became comfortable. That took until the next evening. We were able to reassemble the room to its normal state at that point. The private bedroom was unaffected by the a/c and fairly unliveable (temperature-wise) the entire time. Again - in the cooler months, this wouldn't be a problem, so be aware of this situation if you intend to sleep 4 people in this unit during the summer. The folks in the private room might wake up crispy.

The kitchen and bathroom were fair as well. They also remained fairly toasty from the lack of a/c. We didn't cook but would've been weary to turn on the oven anyway for the heat in the space already.

All-in-all, it was a fine stay. No frills, but it was relatively inexpensive as LA stays go and the biggest perk here is definitely the location.
