About the property

Small 1 bedroom Apt. with deck, bar-b-q and views

The Apt. is in the perfect LA location, it's in a neighborhood in the lower Hollywood Hills on the Valley side right by Universal Studios, but only minutes from Hollywood. Vintage homes and big trees give you a peaceful place to hang your hat while you explore big city adventures. Close to all amenities, supermarket, drug stores & shopping. The apartment has been completely remodeled and is tucked under a 1929 original 2 bedroom Spanish house. The space is cozy but has everything you'll need: a separate bedroom, wifi, flat screen screen TV, custom bathroom and shower, microwave, hi-tech electric induction stove, and a full size refrigerator. A large private deck is steps away, equipped with a propane barbecue, table and chairs for 4 shaded by a large umbrella, and a comfortable lounge chair for enjoying the wonderful Los Angeles climate. You have your own gated private entrance and a parking spot right in front of the garage. There are about a dozen steps up to the Apt. from street level.

Why Bruce Richardson chose San Fernando Valley

It was cheap back in 1983.

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time I have rented from Bruce, each time staying for several months. I come back for a reason! The location is amazing. We love to walk the neighborhood, trips to the grocery are quick and my daughter loves to walk up to Universal with friends. The home is safe with a locked gate and there is ample street parking. Everything in the unit is updated and we are able to live in it just as we would at our own home. The kitchen has everything I need to prepare full meals but with the grill on the beautiful patio, that is where I prefer to spend my afternoons and evenings! The owners are lovely and truly care about the property and guests. I can't imagine staying anywhere else!

Cozy, Comfort & Convenience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a "home away from home" and it was the ABSOLUTE BEST!!! I may never rent a hotel again...true story!

Bruce was super nice; his rental is super clean, cute and comfortable. All the best comforts of home, especially for those that want to do a little home cooking and not eat out all the time. This is a very SAFE & quiet neighborhood, so no worries about that!

And talk about LOCATION…LOCATION…LOCATION; Walking distance to Universal Studios, a few exits to the Hollywood Bowl, Downtown Hollywood, Sunset Blvd, Shopping-shopping-shopping, AND all your other basic needs are just a stone’s throw to a big shopping center with a Ralph’s grocery, a Wells Fargo bank, (ATMs), Rite-Aid pharmacy & lots of places to eat too.

Look no further, you have found the one, right here...☺

My wife & I rented rented this property from Bruce for a month. He & his wife were great hosts. Location near to everything. Walking distance to Universal, City Walk & Subway. Only one stop on Subway to Hollywood. One mile from Runyon Walking trails & five files from Griffith Park. This rental is very clean and has everything you need. Bed was great, shower nice and even used the patio with Webber grill. Walked every mooring in the neighborhood. Very safe. Good restaurants (walking distance). Ralph Grocery store less than one mile. Laundry within three miles. You can't go wrong with this location. Everything you need and great hosts. Will definitely rent here again.

Great little place

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for two. Quiet, comfortable, clean, private, and super safe. Nicely renovated with lots of new dishes, pots and linens. Relatively short walk to Universal Studios (or to the free shuttle stop that takes you up the short hill) was a huge plus. Parking at the property couldn't have been easier. Kitchen was perfect size with everything one needs. Thanks for the stay and we will definitely be back.
