About Stokely Chaffin

After growing up in Alabama and graduating from Harvard, Stokely worked in the movie business for 18 years, producing such arthouse fare as I Know What You Did Last Summer, Freddy vs. Jason, Snakes on a Plane, and Sweet Home Alabama. This house was her baby until she had two real babies and realized it was time to move on. She and her criminal defense attorney fiance are now pouring all their time and money into a 1920s fixer-upper in Hancock Park. She considers you her personal guest and deeply appreciates your choosing her home for your vacation. Welcome.

Stokely Chaffin purchased this house in 1999

Perfect home for space, views and location! Great feel to the home.

  • 5 of 5

Lew House is a beautiful home with cozy seating areas and amazing views from every room. The house is in a great location that’s close to restaurants, shopping and entertainment yet tucked away in a beautiful residential area in the hills. The house is well equipped with cookware, serveware and utensils if you plan to cook here. The beds are extremely comfortable and they provide ample toiletries to use if the need them. Stokely, the owner, is an awesome host. All the areas in the home are well thought out and appointed. The pool bedroom/suite was a nice surprise and perfect getaway for my teenage son. Loved staying here and regretted not having one day to just stay and enjoy all the House has to offer. Highly recommend this home!

Incredible Home. Wonderful Views.

  • 5 of 5

The house is an amazing architectural treasure with lovely indoor and outdoor spaces. It’s beautiful, well-appointed, and very mid-century glam. and, Stokely is great — one of the most responsive and easiest to work with rwntwl owners we have ever met. We will always stay here when we are in LA.

Iconic LA

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfectly set up for a party of 8, with very separate areas. It was comfortable and cool. I can't rave enough about the attention and efforts of our Hostess, Stokely, even with it being her wedding weekend.

Absolutely gorgeous inside and out. Stokely, you're a superstar.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful architecture superbly decorated with mid-century furniture made us wish it was our own home. Well-stocked kitchen and multiple refrigerators provided everything we needed for a perfect LA Thanksgiving for family and friends. Pool and playground made for all-day fun for grown ups, teens, toddlers and puppy! Plenty of household supplies, linens, toys, cool coffee table books... The entire property exudes all around good vibes which very much come from the owner who also happens to be incredibly attentive, accommodating, thorough, warm, friendly and super easy to communicate with. We love your house, Stokely! Can we just have it?

Incredible weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home to celebrate an upcoming wedding with girl friends and family. Host was most accommodating to our needs. The house was beautifully decorated, immaculate and stocked with anything one could want or need. Towels and kitchen supplies in abundance and the most beautiful views of the city. Host was very attentive and readily available should we have had questions or needed anything . Great location only a short walk from the Sunset Strip and fantastic restaurants and shopping. Can't wait to come back!

Perfection- every detail was gorgeously thought through

  • 5 of 5

The house is a masterpiece down to the furniture selection, plates, thread count... it was like a 5 star hotel but private. Not to mention that the house itself is a complete work of art. We loved it.
