About Tanya Frank
I am a teacher and a writer, originally from the UK but now living in Los Angeles, CA. Travel and food are two of my utmost passions, and I have sampled both to plentiful measures. I like to stay somewhere I can cook, close to walking trails and water and the beauty of nature. As much as I love to travel, I also love to host. The thrill of meeting people from near and far and knowing I can provide a home from home for them is very gratifying.
Tanya Frank purchased this House in 2004
Why Tanya Frank chose Hollywood Hills
This property has been in my family since 1964. It has a special place in my heart, and offers the best of everything. Enjoy the great views, a sense of being in the countryside with all the charms of nature, while affording the benefits of the city, which is just a few minutes walk away.
What makes this House unique
A private garden with BBQ and dining table and lounge chairs. A view to die for from almost every room. The cool breeze that comes from living in the hills. A kitchen with a vintage stove that Patrick Swayze used to cook with back in the 1980's when he lived here.
100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.
We had an amazing stay and loved the location and classic feel of the house. Wonderful patio to enjoy breakfast or happy hour on. All the vintage feel you can wish for and still extremely comfortable and cozy. Already suggested to several friends to stay in their next visit to LA.
A Little Slice of Heaven
What a delight to stay in this beautiful, unique home in such a convenient location. We turned left out of the front gate and walked down to a concert at the Hollywood Bowl, turned right out of the gate and walked down to the Chinese Theater, Walk of Fame, and dinner at the iconic Musso & Frank Grill, all on Hollywood Blvd. Sunday morning we walked to a fabulous brunch with bottomless mimosas at Yamashiro restaurant, which was right down the street. You couldn’t get a better location. One evening we enjoyed the chaise lounges on the rooftop deck, enjoying 360 degree views of the twinkling lights of the city while listening to music on our Bluetooth speaker. We even saw a shooting star. Mornings started off on the right foot with coffee al fresco in the garden.
From the comfortable beds and pillows to the fluffy robes in the bathroom— from the well-stocked kitchen and pantry to Patrick Swayze’s stove— it would be a challenge to find a better place to stay for the price. Does it sound like heaven? I hope so, because it is.
My only regret is in planning so much to do. I wish I had allowed more time to relax and enjoy this place, but I’ll have to leave that to the future. Next time I’m in LA, there is nowhere else I’ll want to stay than in this little slice of heaven on Hillcrest Road. Thank you Tanya for a wonderful stay!
What a fabulous review. I am so happy that you were able to enjoy your stay to the full.
l will be happy to host you again, anytime.
Perfection in the Hollywood Hills
What a spectacular place to stay in the Hollywood Hills. Perfect location, wonderful views, comfortable rooms and all the amenities you could want. We even found fresh eggs, juice, bagels, oranges and apples in the frig. What a wonder surprise. We used Lyft and Uber to get around. All worked perfectly. Tanya is a great host. Highly recommend her place for visiting Los Angeles.
Quality vintage charmer w/amazing views & location!
Very LA/Hollywood! Have stayed at many vrbo properties and this one is the most unique and authentic to the area. Loved the style and décor. The home was super clean on arrival with special touches such as breakfast basics in the fridge. The large kitchen is fully stocked with every implement you could need. We found the beds comfortable and also the cool, mid-century modern couch. Favorite spots – rocking chair in the living room, dining table whether to eat or work with big views over Hollywood and to DTLA, patio – private, surrounded by beautiful plantings and romantically lit with string lights overhead, rooftop terrace for 360 degree views, and the cheery, sun-filled kitchen in the morning. We walked past other lovely homes to the Hollywood Night Market at Yamashiro (Thursdays in summer) and the Hightower neighborhood and recommend both. To us, the music from weekend parties at neighboring properties was part of what made it so vibrant and fun. It does not run late, so no problem when we wanted to go to sleep. Great airflow/breeze with windows open; barely used the AC. Tanya is on top of everything and easy to reach. Would glady stay here again!
What an experience having your stay in this home.Tanya is very accommodating and you can't beat the location.View is awesome and the beds were comfortable.
We all had a great time, glad we booked this home.Thanks Tanya!
A special location in Hollywood Hills
Where to begin? The location is beautiful, within walking distance to Hollywood & Highland. The property is charming and spacious and overlooks LA, providing beautiful views from its living/dining room, as well as from its roof. Many necessary items (soap, shampoo, conditioner, dishwasher detergent, toilet paper, towels) were provided in sufficient quantities to cover at least a week of stay. Tanya was very helpful and answered our questions very quickly. A perfect experience!
