Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Melrose - European Designer LA Oasis

Beautifully Maintained And Furnished Home In A Safe And Trendy LA Neighborhood

My cozy Spanish home was built in 1923 and is fully renovated with 2 bedrooms, 2 and a half bathrooms, dining and living room, a great kitchen with breakfast bar, hardwood floors and tiles throughout (1700 sq. feet / 520 sq meters). I keep my home very clean and uncluttered. The decor is eclectic with treasures, art and furniture that I collected while traveling all over the world. Build-in speakers are in every room as well as in the garden. All you have to do is hook-up your iPod. The house is not suitable for young children. Unfortunately, I can't take bookings for children under the age of 12. However, I can make exceptions for newborns.

The spa-like garden is completely private with table tennis, sun loungers and an outside dinning area that can be heated at night. The heated cabana style patio is furnished with luxurious Restoration Hardware furniture and succulent potted plants. All areas of the house and garden are well lit during the night.

The main house and guesthouse are both fully set up with alarm systems and surveillance cameras if you choose to use them. Free Wi-Fi all around the house, 42-inch high-definition TV with 800 cable TV channels. Washer and dryer, dishwasher, large fridge and freezer, state-of-the-art Viking stove with oven. There is a Nespresso machine for free cappuccino and espresso in the kitchen and the drinking water is Kangen-Ionized and filtered. Better than bottled water! Microwave, plates, dishes, pots and pans, glasses, cups. Catering and cooking can be arranged for a minimum of 4 guests. The house lends itself well for entertaining and the outdoor dinning area seats 12.

The MASTER BEDROOM with en suite bathroom has a filtered shower and double sink. Decorated with art, rugs, books. King size Royal Auping bed with lush high tread count Ralph Lauren satin/cotton sheets and hypoallergenic linen covered Duvet, 4 pillows. 2 Bedside tables with reading lights, halogen recessed lighting with dimmers throughout the spacious bedroom.

Other rental options:

I permanently live on the premises in the guesthouse, but for complete privacy, I can vacate the property. However, you will benefit from me being there since I keep an eye on things and 'fairy cleaning' will take place when you are out of the house.

In addition to the main house, you can rent the guesthouse under the following options:

- Rent guesthouse, 2 bedrooms on ground floor, four guests maximum (per night)

- Rent bedroom #1, two guests maximum (per night)

- Rent bedroom #2, two guests maximum (per night)

- Rent the guesthouse, both floors, four guests maximum (per night)

If interested in renting the guesthouse WITHOUT the main house, you have the option to:

- Rent guesthouse, 2 bedrooms on ground floor, four guests maximum (per night). *Extra guest fee: each, per night, beyond two guests.

I have included photos of the bedrooms in the guesthouse and marked them as “GUESTHOUSE”.

About Adriana van de Pol

By profession I am a Fashion Jewelry Designer, Manufacturer and Importer. I also design interiors and am a renowned Flea Market Junkie. I am passionate about Yoga, Los Angeles, good food and suffer from wanderlust.

I like to surround myself with inspiring people and entertain at my little oasis in the middle of Hollywood, dubbed 'THE BEST HOTEL IN TOWN' by friends and family.

These are my travel priorities for no-stars or 5-star destinations: 1) a good bed 2) a very clean bathroom 3) a spotless kitchen 4) a friendly and helpful host 5) a safe and authentic neighborhood 6) a unique and meaningful experience to remember.

My home is a place for happiness and personal well-being; be it work, entertainment, cooking, exercising or self-pampering. Staying at home is the new going out!

I have thoughtfully converted my home into an ultimate destination, both as a personal hide out and a public place for all my visitors.

My personal all-time travel favorites are: 1) Bali, Ubud 2) African Safaris 3) India, Rajasthan and Goa 4) The South of France 5) Italy, the Amalfi coast 6) New York

7) Big Sur & Napa Valley, California.

Adriana van de Pol purchased this house in 2009

Why Adriana van de Pol chose Los Angeles

When I moved to LA 5 years ago, I looked at 200 homes to buy. This house is so special. The flow and layout, location and possibilities are endless.

You can enjoy total privacy or hang out together on the communal patio and sun loungers. The kitchen bar is always popular and when you feel like stretching your legs you may choose to walk the green and safe neighborhood by foot or challenge someone for a game of table tennis in the garden.

There is a lot to do only minutes away, but staying in can be just as good as going out. All I know is I love this sunny palm-tree shaded Oasis and coming from freezing Holland and England I feel blessed living here and hope to share my home and surroundings with you in the middle of Los Angeles where great thing happen!

What makes this house unique

I Live on the compound on the top floor of the large guesthouse. I am always here to help with anything you may need or questions you may have. However I can move out of the guesthouse upon your request. You can rent 1 or 2 additional bedrooms in my guesthouse. Please read about that in the description.

I can cater for groups in and out doors. I teach basic fashion jewelry classes at my loft on the top floor. I can provide massage and beauty treatments and yoga. I am a member of Soho House and can get you a table at this exclusive club. As a membership requirement, I have to be invited too:). I have had many unexpected Soho House meals with my guests and have made friends along the way.

I respect my guests and love hosting, but know when to leave you in peace to enjoy your privacy.

I speak English, Dutch, German, and kitchen French.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Scott and his wife and friends have been such gracious guests, the house was spotless when they left and they were a joy to host in my home. Needles to say I recommend them and hope to see them again in the future !

A Wonderful Oasis in West Hollywood

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. Less than a block off Melrose Ave on a quiet street. Lots of restaurants nearby. The house is beautifully decorated with a warm vibe. Bedrooms and baths are large. Kitchen well-equipped. The patio is a real treat - comfortable sofas - great place to hang after a long day of touring.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

I rarely write reviews. However, this property is too special not to. The house is beautiful and the interior design is exceptional. However, the best part of the house is the back yard and the patio. We spent countless hours hanging out there, sipping our wine, and enjoying the weather. The backyard is really an oasis in the middle of Hollywood. The location is superb and we were close to everything. I highly recommend this property.

A beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent 2 nights at Adriana's home. We all agreed that we would have loved more time there. The location was perfect for sightseeing around the Hollywood/Beverly Hills area.

When we came in from sightseeing, we all enjoyed the inviting, relaxing atmosphere. The house itself is wonderfully decorated and also well-equipped with anything you might need. Aside from a variety of toiletries, there was even laundry soap and a sewing kit, which we used. One of my teens was pleasantly surprised by the guitar in the living room and he enjoyed getting to play it. We cooked both breakfasts and dinners at the house and found everything we needed for preparing meals. There was even a nice selection of spices. There is a Target store with groceries and another grocery store very close by, which made shopping for meals convenient.

The backyard is magazine perfect, beautifully decorated with a good selection of comfortable seating. We ate dinner outside one evening at the large table and really enjoyed the beautiful, peaceful atmosphere. Even though it was a little chilly out, the heaters outside made it comfortable. Our boys also enjoyed the ping pong table in the yard.

I also have to mention that the beds were very comfortable and we all slept well. We found the house to be very clean and stocked with good quality items, such as linens and towels. I know I keep using the word beautiful, but this house truly is beautiful, down to the smallest details.

Adriana was very friendly and helpful with any questions about the area. We felt quite at home there and I would not hesitate to rent it again.

Excellent stay - would highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in Adriana's lovely home for two weeks over the Christmas / New Year's holiday. Even before we made the reservation, she was extremely responsive and accommodating, answering our every question to ensure we were comfortable before making the booking.

Upon arrival, we were extremely impressed with her attention to detail and the level of effort that she puts into ensuring her guests get the most out of their experience. She conducted a thorough walk-through with us and has a comprehensive "manual” in the home to address any questions guests may have, e.g., how to operate the washer / dryer, street parking rules, etc. The home was thoroughly stocked with extra towels and linens, paper and personal products, basic kitchen supplies, etc; we didn't need to worry about not having something we might need.

Her home is just as lovely as it looks in the photos. It is full of interesting art and furniture from her travels, and it is clean and modern. The backyard in particular is very inviting, and heat lamps allow you to enjoy it even when it's cold at night. We were particularly interested in having a nice, well-equipped kitchen in which to cook, and Adriana's kitchen did not disappoint. Newly renovated, the kitchen had high-end appliances and was stocked with nice cookware and dinnerware. There is an audio system with connected speakers throughout and one can connect their own music - a nice touch.

The neighborhood is safe and residential and within walking distance of a nice stretch of Melrose (and easy driving distance from the rest of West Hollywood).

All in, we would certainly recommend Adriana's property; in our view, she likely goes above and beyond the typical host in ensuring that guests have a clean, comfortable, modern, and well-appointed stay. Thanks, Adriana!
