It was a lovely spot for my family of four to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with the owner’s hospitality as well as her knowledge and stories about Los Feliz. It’s such a beautiful neighborhood and the views from the bedroom terrace were unbelievable. I would highly recommend this property. We had a wonderful time.

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Pros: Diane Rocks

Beautiful view

Huge bed

Maps galore

Amazing bathroom with a giant tub

Quiet street

Close to everything


WiFi is super choppy but I think it might be because the modem is downstairs

No temperature control. No Ac was kind of a bummer for me because I have hot flashes. It the weather is right there is a breeze running through and fans.

I would and will stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Angie! It was a pleasure to host you and I'm glad you had so much fun in LA. Just to set the record straight-we do have AC (and heat). Fortunately, you didn't need since it was only in the 50's and 60's while you were here. I'm glad the fans and cool rainy weather worked for you and kept you comfortable at night- I know those hot flashes are the worst! Please come again someday..all our best to you. Dianne and Sande

Charming and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

The property is located in the nicest part of the city which is very quiet if you’re lookin for true relaxation. The owner, Dianne, is very sweet and is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Also, if you don’t want to miss leg day at the gym there is enough hills to walk up plus the property isn’t far from the Griffith Observatory which is also a great hike. I really enjoyed my stay.

Great stay in Los Feliz. Awesome location to take in LA sites.

  • 5 of 5

Dianne was attentive and responsive from beginning of booking the rental until we left and she was helpful in navigating the city. It was particularly helpful that Dianne had maps of the area along with recommendations of places to eat/shop etc. available for us to use throughout our trip. The home was spacious and comfortable with a beautiful view. It was located in a safe and upscale neighborhood with walking access to Griffith Park as well as easy/quick access to various tourist activities. Met all of our needs and was a great place to stay while visiting LA and taking in the sites. Thanks!

Loved the location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood to unwind at the end of our day. The view from the balcony is spectacular! We felt we were walking straight into old-time Hollywood. Unit was very private and spacious but owners were easily accessible. Enjoyed meeting Dianne and Sande.

Great old Hollywood style

  • 4 of 5

This suite of rooms was spacious and airy and retains the charm of Hollywood from the 20s and 30s! Many thoughtful amenities throughout, including a great collection of photo and history books about Hollywood and the area. And of course a spectacular view of LA and the Griffith Observatory--the photos don't do it justice! Dianne was so welcoming and hospitable.

The neighborhood was very quiet and it was a restful place to be and yet still very conveniently located for sightseeing. We loved the character and sense of LA history in the Los Feliz neighborhood, with plenty of restaurant options and even some great little movie houses.

It was unusually cold when we visited and the place was a bit drafty, but I expect that it's an exception to the rule and would guess that for the same reason, the house stays nice and cool when it's hotter outside.
