AIR AND HEATING

The house has central heating. While there is NO central air, each bedroom has a window unit. Usually, with California weather, no air conditioning is needed, as cross breeze runs through the house . Even in the hottest days of summer, the nights cool down considerably and the window units suffice for keeping the area cool.

About Holly

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.

Holly purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Holly 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.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 just enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with our freshmen college student. We enjoyed homecooked meals using all the cookware and spices already available at the property. There was plenty of space to enjoy movies and dinners with family and friends. The location was close to great shopping and activities. We even enjoyed the early morning drive to Santa Monica pier every day so that our cross country runner could have a beautiful and safe place to run. We would definitely plan to stay at this charming and very well maintained property during our next family gathering in LA.

Great property, easy booking

  • 4 of 5

This property is great. I stayed with a few friends for a quick trip to LA and we loved it here. Holly was super responsive to questions and easy to work with. She gave a few suggestions on what to do and had a binder full of useful information and resources about the stay and things to do in LA. The only reason I give it 4 stars is we weren't able to adjust the temperature in common spaces. There was a thermostat but it didn't seem to work. We didn't bother asking about this since the AC in bedrooms worked just fine and we stayed here in November when evenings are cool.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying at my property and am thrilled you enjoyed it. Please know that the common rooms only have heat; they do not have AC. This is stated in the booklet inside the apartment, and on the VRBO/HomeAway site and on the thermostat itself. I'm sorry it wasn't more clear to you that there is no AC in the common rooms? We do our best to set proper expectations about the apartment to ensure guests know exactly what the apartment offers.

She tended to our needs and requests . But the neighhbors do complain alot and the police were called while the boys were playing video games in the living room because there was " too much noise " .

Owner's Response: Thanks for your positive review, Lex. Prospective guests, please understand that this guest had a loud party at my property and left a considerable mess. Furthermore, she stayed an extra night without paying and booked my property with a stolen credit card ...and I'm now having to pick up the pieces. I'm quite surprised she left a review and perplexed that she would have the audacity to complain about the neighbors. This property is not a party house; it's a serene, stylish refuge on a residential tree-lined street. Neighbors are respectful and friendly... and only complain if a loud party is going on late into the night.

Wonderful vacation home in LA

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, very clean and spacy apartment – the ideal location for visits to Disneyland (45 min away), Universal Studios, Beverley Hills and Hollywood (20 min). For 6 adults (us two, our two sons and their wives) the three bedrooms and two bath rooms were just fine. We also enjoyed the nice and quiet garden by the end of the day. Holly was most accommodating both before and during our stay and was very fast responding to our questions by mail or SMS.

We highly recommend this place for family and friends – thanks a lot Holly. Hopefully we’ll come back one day. Anne and Henrik (Denmark)
