About Gina Martin

This prime property is brand new to the Vacation and Corporate rental markets but not new to it’s owner who has been in the vacation / corporate rental business for years. This property has been the pride and joy of its owner since 2006. David takes enormous pride in the heritage of Hollywood and the restoration of its unique historical and architectural history. You are sure to find staying here a memorable and valuable experience.

Gina Martin purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Gina Martin chose San Fernando Valley

Hollywood is a vibrant, bustling town and this is a truly perfect location from which to tour LA. The studio, guest house is fully self-contained and may also be rented separately for maximum 2 guests.

Ten minutes away, by foot there is an enormous, hip, new LA Fitness and Starbucks. A short drive to either the 101 Freeway or Cahuenga Blvd. gets you to Grauman’s Chinese /Walk of Fame /Hollywood/Highland complex, Hollywood Bowl, Melrose Avenue, Cinerama Dome, subway stations that connect you to downtown, countless gyms, shops, tours, restaurants theaters and night clubs. This home and its rear studio guest house (when available sleeps 2, total 6) is freeway close and convenient to the Valley, West Hollywood and Beverly Hills by car or metro.

What makes this bungalow unique

Set among mature trees and a forest of bamboo, this house is situated on a sleepy, windy road, just 3 minutes from the 101 Freeway. You will feel like you are miles away from the action of the City..but you're not!

Great location & Unique Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this home for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home has been renovated with great touches and artful flair. We lacked for nothing and enjoyed the central location. Lots of great restaurants within the area and the proximity to Universal Studios is amazing. Trade Joe's and Ralph's are also right around the corner. We managed to go home for lunch the days we visited Universal and still make it back for several more hours of fun. I was also very happy with the attentive management of the property, Gina answered all my texts very promptly.

Our second stay! Yay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this rental. We were here in the spring and decided to return this summer for more theme park fun. This location is PERFECT for Universal Studios!!! It's maybe 5 minutes to get there. It is also close to Warner Brothers Studios and Bob Hope/Burbank airport. This house has obviously had some thoughtful design touches. It is interesting. I loved taking pictures of the outdoor courtyard area.

We never saw anyone from the smaller house and never felt uncomfortable about them being there.

Even though this location is close to everything, it is quiet and private. The only negative is that we felt that the central A/C unit is undersized for this house. It was very hot while we were there and we didn't feel like it could keep up.

Gina is really easy to work with! I appreciate how easy it was to text her and get a response. The last time we stayed I mentioned that the toaster was giving out. Guess what? This time there was a new toaster that worked like a charm.

This is a nice, clean place that is accommodating and has a great location! A++

Cute little hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect property for our family including our 2-year-old! Quiet location despite being super close to pretty much everything (groceries, restaurants, Universal, In N Out...). We only rented the larger house, but the group who had rented the smaller house was courteous and we couldn't hear them at all, even when they cooked and had drinks on the shared patio. Parking was easy, the kitchen had everything we needed to put together a few meals, my husband and I could talk and watch TV after putting our daughter to bed without waking her--just the perfect size property for our family. Will definitely look for this the next time we're in town!

Perfection in Hollywood Hills

  • 5 of 5

We came to spend 4 action packed days with our 3 children ages, 23,20,18 - with our top focus being Universal Studios and the New Harry Potter World! This house was perfect for us. Clean isn't even the word I would use. It was spotless with super great sheets and towels and that is vitally important to me. The yard was so beautiful -- the perfect place to drink a cup of coffee in the mornings. The bathrooms were plenty big with extra towels and plenty of plugs. We didn't cook, but there was everything we needed if we had. We rented an SUV, and it was easy to park in the driveway. It was less than 10 minutes to Universal Studios, about half an hour from Downtown LA and the touristy sites. We saw a Dodgers game and took Uber - and that cost about $20 and took the hassle out of parking. We spent a day at Santa Monica/ Venice Beach and it was about 45 minutes back to the house. We flew in and out of Bob Hope Airport in Burbank - which was a short 15 minute drive. The owner even stopped by one morning and was super nice and accommodating. The property manager checked on us and made sure we had everything we needed. This is one of the top VRBO houses we have rented and it is one I will highly recommend to friends and family!

Yes! Thank goodness it was so nice!

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Private. Did I already say that it was a great location?! The house was clean, easy to find, had a generous parking spot, loved having two bathrooms, and plenty of space for 4 of us. This place has obviously had some thought in the style of decor inside and out. The location was about 10 minutes to Warner Brothers Studios, 5 minutes to Universal Hollywood, not far from downtown Burbank, easy to get to the Hollywood walk of fame, 45 to Santa Monica pier, close to Griffith Park, 5 minutes to a grocery store, and easy to get to/from Burbank airport. Just loved it! I kinda wish there was a hot tub. ;-) Gina was very prompt and easy to deal with. I really appreciated that. We have a VRBO of our own and I have to say this place is managed very well.

Wonderful Peaceful Beautiful and Surprising

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect!

We were traveling with my mother who is 92 but wonderfully mobile so we wanted a place on a single level. We also had our bicycles and my 28 year old son. This place surpassed every diverse need we had! My mom enjoyed coffee in the wonderful and surprising and sun filled backyard. My husband and I rode our bikes to the Griffith Park Observatory and back up some canyons and along Mulholland Drive . My son visited all of his friends in LA and Ubered back home at his convenience. There was a place for visitors to have tea with "Grandma" and a place for the family to meet and talk. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and everything was amazingly close to this location.
