Overview

About the property

In View Of The Hollywood Sign, Close To Food, Cocktails And Attractions

**** Check out time is 12:00 Noon on the last day of the reservation. Check in times are between 2:00 and 9:00 PM, which can be earlier if there isn't a guest checking out on that day requiring time for me to clean and prepare the apartment. PLEASE don't book the unit and then wait until after approval to tell me you're taking the red-eye and won't arrive until 2:00 AM. ****

This is a STUDIO apartment with one queen size bed, located in the heart of Hollywood's Media District, close to West Hollywood, restaurants, shopping, theaters, clubs and all the services you will need.... in a controlled access (keyed entry) courtyard complex with old world Spanish flavor.

This unit has all appliances: Stove, Refrigerator, built in Microwave, Toaster, Coffee Maker, Electric Teapot, as well as A/C, WiFi & LIGHT WEEKLY MAID SERVICE TOO!

It's been updated (granite counters, maple cabinets), but still holds all of the 1920's Spanish style charm.

Parking is street parking, and as I've experienced, other than on street cleaning days (Monday and Tuesday on alternating sides between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM), there is usually a space available close to the building.

The unit also features on site (coin operated) laundry facilities, cable television, plus CD player.

Utilities are entirely included.

***In deference to those with sensitivities, this is a No Smoking/No Pets Unit. Smoking is permitted outside the unit, of course***

About Herbert

My goal is to assure that your experience with me is a positive one, and I ask only that you treat the property and fellow guests with the respect and consideration you would expect for yourself.

Many of my guests are repeat customers, which is the finest kind of reference! I wear all the hats, i.e., owner, cleaner, handyman, banker, bookkeeper, and customer service representative........my phone is always on and if I'm awake, I answer it!

Herbert purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Herbert chose Hollywood

The courtyard setting is what gets the most comment for its warm and welcoming attributes. What could be better than enjoying your morning coffee next to the trickling fountain in the dappled sunlight that sneaks through the canopy of trees?

What makes this apartment unique

Walking distance to attractions, restaurants, entertainment.....

Herbert has a lovely condo.

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I went to visit her son and I am so glad we found Herbert's condo. It is gated with an outdoor courtyard where we spent every morning drinking our coffee. Herbert met us there when we arrived and told us how to use all the codes to get in. If you want a really nice place to stay you should check this out.

Comfortable and secure

  • 5 of 5

This was my second experience with VRBO and it was truly excellent. The unit is centrally located to many attractions (Griffith spark, Hollywood and Sunset Blvds, Hollywood Forever, etc) and the property management was wonderful - he had a parking spot saved directly outside of the unit upon our arrival, which was really helpful since street parking isn’t the best in the area. The unit was secured by a heavy-duty gate that is kept locked at all times. Would definitely stay again!

Great place plus great host!

  • 5 of 5

We were planning a visit to Universal Studio and found this spot to be nearby (it’s about 10-12 mins drive which is not bad at all!) There are lots of nearby restaurants that we were able to walk to (Between Sunset and Hollywood Blvd). Everything was as pictured and Herbert our host was very attentive and responded promptly when needed. Our flight got delayed so we were late for the check in but Herbert was accommodating and waited for us to arrive. He guided us through the area and gave us thorough instructions on how to use the appliances, explained the parking, etc. There is a locked gate at the entrance so it feels safe (only the tenants are able to get in). Herbert went above and beyond. We realized we had left our house keys at the studio when we got home. Herbert was able to overnight the keys back to us. We are so grateful!! This is a perfect spot if you plan on visiting Universal and want to explore Hollywood Blvd. Koreantown is also a 10min drive if you’re feeling Kbbq.

Los Angeles, CA 90038

This neighborhood is fast becoming a 'walking' neighborhood, with most all of your needs being met without ever having to get behind the wheel!

Sunset Boulevard is 6 blocks north (left as you exit the access gate onto Wilcox Avenue) of the property, and Hollywood Boulevard (which features the famous 'Walk of Fame' and Grauman's Chinese Theater, where the stars of yesteryear and yesterday have left their hand and foot prints in cement for us and for posterity) is 2 more blocks in the same direction.

You'll be walking toward the Hollywood Sign, which will come into view as you get past the CNN building that's blocking it from your front door.....

Located on Sunset, and its side street tributaries, you'll find restaurants of diverse proclivities, from vegetarian to carnivore and many in between.

FOOD WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE:

Umami Burger (1520 Cahuenga Blvd #7, 90028; 323-469-3100). Truffles are their not-so-secret ingredient. It's tricky to find because it's in....well, hard to describe the building it's in. If you walk east on Sunset (right turn if you're coming from Wilcox) then turn north (left) on Cahuenga, you'll encounter Space 15 Twenty, and within you'll find various shops and stores...and Umami Burger.

Stout (on Cahuenga), a patio bar/restaurant. They have an eclectic array of beers, AND a truffle burger.

Be sure to specify in both these places how you want your burger cooked as their default is medium rare.

Kitchen 24 (1608 N Cahuenga, 90028; 323-465-2424). It can be acoustically noisy (cement walls that magnify the sound if it's full of talkers), and features modern basic fare. If you're looking for an all around place, this one works.

Chicken Dijon Rotisserie & Grill (6282 Hollywood Blvd, 90028; 323-463-4050; ) has a wide choice of salads and wraps (upscale cafeteria; quick service and relatively healthy, tasty food) that are built around, as you might guess, chicken. Many 'locals' go here for lunch.

Urban Masala (6554 Hollywood Boulevard; 323-957-9999) features Indian cuisine and was recommended by a recent guest if you have a craving for curry.

The Melt (6290 Sunset Blvd, 90028; 213-344-4906) serves just what the name implies: Cheese sandwiches. I had the short rib on sourdough with black bean soup….delicious. Would definitively return.

La Numero Uno Restauraunt (1247 Vine Street; 323-957-1111) serves Latin cuisine. Highly recommended by a discerning guest and great reviews on Google, and well within walking distance, about 6 blocks east.

FAST FOOD:

Pizza Hut (6660 W Sunset Blvd)

Subway (6051 Hollywood Blvd; 1813 N Cahuenga Blvd; 6660 Sunset Blvd)

McDonalds (1413 N Vine; 6776 Hollywood Blvd)

Crazy Rockin Sushi (7100 Santa Monica Blvd)

Chipotle Mexican Grill (1460 Vine)

Starbucks (6102 W Sunset Blvd)

'Alcove' (casual) and 'Off Vine' (fine dining). I encourage you to check out the reviews on 'Yelp' for a more thorough report and location information on these establishments.

GROCERY STORES:

Trader Joes (1600 N Vine: .75 Miles--about 8 blocks), located at Selma and Vine (Selma is 1 block south of Sunset, Vine is 4 blocks east of Wilcox).

Ralph's Grocery (1233 N LaBrea: 1.1 miles; 5429 N Highland Ave: 1.1 miles)

OTHER:

Walgreens (5451 W Sunset Blvd: .99 miles; 1050 N Highland Ave: 1.03 miles)

On Sundays there is an open air Farmer's Market in the 1500 block of Ivar Avenue between Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards (left on Wilcox, right on Sunset) where you can get fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers. It is open between 8 AM. - 1 PM.

TRANSPORTATION:

To/From LAX Airport: ($20 per person, flat rate); ($26 one person, $9.00 each additional person)

This site will provide you with scheduling, route, and fare information for the Metro Bus and Subway system.

Zip car (1529 N Cahuenga; 323-866-4508) is an innovative company that rents cars for as little as $6.50 per hour. Great for those times when it’s too far to walk but you don’t necessarily need a vehicle full time. They have several pick up locations within blocks of the property.

Bikes and Hikes (323-796-8555; ) offers bicycle and hiking tours of Hollywood, as well as renting bicycles for personal use.
