About Patricia

I moved to LA from the Midwest in the mid 1990s and have called LA 'home' ever since. Since 2001, I have bought, renovated and rented out historic LA homes and enjoy making your visit to LA memorable and enjoyable. I live in another house in the same neighborhood so I'm a moment away should you need anything at all. I love this home and this neighborhood and work in the area. Outside of caring for this house, I'm a Digital Entertainment Marketing executive and part-time UCLA Instructor. I love this vibrant city and know it inside and out; and I look forward to having you as my guest.

Patricia purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Patricia chose Los Angeles

This property is a very special 1920's era duplex that captivated me with its charm, open layout, romantic balconies, wood floors, barrel ceilings and celebrity past. British glam-rock musician, Marc Bolan (T. Rex) lived in this home in the 1970s with his wife, Grammy nominated Gloria Jones - so this home has great vibes! She was the first singer to record the song, Tainted Love.

What makes this apartment unique

Completely renovated yet retains an old Hollywood glamour feel and is uniquely LA. Top quality 500 thread-count linens, down comforters, variety of down pillows to suit tastes, organic soaps, top quality beds.Full stocked kitchen designed for cooking.

Layout is very open for a 1920s era home. Very well appointed with 2 balconies and a spacious private back patio dedicated for this unit. You'll also have your own driveway for your car so parking is very convenient, just steps from your front door. You will be living in the entire 1800 sq. foot top floor. Extremely quiet and peaceful street. It's a refuge in the middle of bustling LA.

Amazing house!

  • 4 of 5

The house was awesome. Very large and comfy. The house is in the middle of town so it is not a long distance to many attractions. Very convenient! It is in a fairly quiet neighborhood. Heard lots of sirens at night, but it's expected in a large city. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

Everything about this rental is legit. Its a great location, great owner and great value.

I deducted one star (would have been a half star if that was an option) because the outside space while nice, isn't really accessible. You have to go down a dark narrow staircase and its around the back. So if part of your party is in the house and the rest is outside it makes it hard to know what each other is doing.

I would rent again if I came back to the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at my penthouse apartment. I'm thrilled to hear you and your family enjoyed the apartment. I do want to point out that the stairwell is lit - you simply have to turn on the light switch. So, perhaps the the bulb was not working properly but I make sure we check all light bulbs on a regular basis to avoid this happening. Hope to have you back again! Patricia

Perfect Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a group of 6 girls and it was perfect! Great location and everything was just a cab ride away. Tons of common space to hang out in and lots of counter space and mirrors to get ready in!
