Built in 1920's as hotel, later converted into apartments. The apartment building is located on Cherokee. In the very heart of Hollywood, one block off the Walk of Fame. In 1930, Bing Crosby rented an apartment here for 70$ while filming his first "Reaching for the Moon" (1930)
The building has a lot of character and with kind, artistic neighbors from around the world. Laundry facility(1.25 wash/1.00 dry) in basement of building. Pet friendly building and I am willing to allow pets in apartment on case-by-case basis. Please advise of pets, prior to confirming reservations. It is a gated apartment building, with secure parking garage next door for 12USD/ day. The Geisha House, fine dining restaurant and dance club, Angels and Kings nightclub/bar, Cafe Audrey's, Musso and Frank's, Kress and many more restaurants, bars, clubs are one block walk.
My one bedroom apartment, approximately 850 sqft, is on the 4th floor(top floor) southwest corner of the building. The neighbors are quiet, social, young professionals. We all like to work hard, play hard and share many evenings together, celebrating life in general. The apartment overlooks the parking garage and Hollywood Blvd. The view is amazing! By day, you can see over all of LA, stretching out as far as you can see...by night, the neon of the Boulevard, CNN, Kress, TVGuide Network, Renaissance hotel and Kodak Theatre buildings. The apartment has all hardwood floors, plenty of closet space, full bath, full kitchen (even an old "ice box" turned into cabinet), dinette, furnished living room and california king-sized bed. Before going out to enjoy Hollywood...you can enjoy watching the sunrise and the sunset from this apartment, which gets beautiful sunlight all day long.
The apartment has a nice, peaceful, relaxing vibe, my interior decor still needs some work(I am a single guy:) and I am open to any recommendations you may have while visiting.
Be warned, Hollywood is a very busy, noisy neighborhood. If you are sensitive to noise (helicopters, nightclubs, sirens, screaming, laughter), I recommend a rental in another city. On the other hand, if you are wanting to explore and experience the never-ending nights of Hollywood parties... they are right outside your door:)
You are most welcome here:)

Prime Location & a truly amazing place/Host! Highly recommended~ An Excellent Experience.
This place is so clean and spacious and quirky without being odd!! The location is perfect too.Stephen was a great host. Our only disappointment was TV was listed as an amentiy but had been put away when we arrived. Stephen did offer to set it up for us but we felt it would be rude to ask. TV may seem irrelevant to most travellers but we like to chill out in front of it each evening when we've been out running around LA all day ! It was one of the reasons we chose the appartment. But for that we'gladly give the place 5 stars
Steve was a great host -- he promptly communicated with us when we were setting up the reservation, was easy to reach when we arrived in LA, and left clear information for us during our stay. The apartment was exactly what we needed: spacious and spotless, with plenty of clean towels and bedding.
Stephen was a wonderful host, easy to communicate with and always helpful. He was our first host through airbnb and it was a great experience!
The apartment was lovely, a perfect Hollywood location. It was spacious, bigger than expected and everything we needed for our stay. The only issue we had was that there was no blinds or curtains to block out the morning sun, so it was hard to get a sleep in. But this didn't worry us too much as we were up early most days to explore LA.
Recommend this place!
We travel to the US for a Holiday and stayed at Stephen's for a week. It was fantastic place to stay! It was very close to the subway, which allowed us to explore LA so easily. Stephen was an outstanding host and was easy to contact when we needed him. He went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy with our accommodation and overal satisfied with our stay in LA!
I couldn't think of a better place to stay in Hollywood than Stpehes apartment. Unbeatable location, great open areas, and plenty of light. The place was spotless and Stephen left beautiful flowers and a complementary bottle of wine for us. He is the ultimate host! wonderful person with a generous spirit. He can be as helpful as you want.
Location is amazing. Right in the center of Hollywood, right on the Boulevard and walking distance to most of the Hollywood sights. Only a few blocks from the subway station, and easy access to buses. Zipcar available in a lot few blocks away too. Transit and access to transportation is key in LA.
The apartment was very spacious and clean. The host was really awesome and picked us up from the airport, saving us an expensive cab ride, and also providing a complimentary bottle of wine! Stephen has great advice on seeing the sights in Hollywood and surrounding areas.
Stephen lived up to to his reputation as an ‘ideal’ host, resulting in a pleasant and efficient meet and greet meeting. His top floor apartment is well located near Hollywood Boulevard which has umpteen restaurants, shops and a tourist friendly neighborhood. The Hollywood Walk of Fame & the Chinese Theatre are literally at your doorstep. The 4 storey building has many apartments occupied in the main by young professionals. The Hollywood area challenges you to accept the sound of helicopter flyovers, police car sirens, loud music, the odd Harley Davidson and the noise of young people having a good time. In brief: Don’t expect bells and whistles but this apartment is good value for money.
I'm almost reluctant to review Stepehn's apartment, coz the more people know about it, the busier it'll get and I probably won't be able to get back there when I want!
Stephen gives 5 star treatment to his guests .. it's personalised, professional, friendly and most importantly, useful!
As first time visitors to LA, the prospect of navigating such a hectic environment in a limited time (5 days) was challenging. Stephen provided lots of useful information, including pick-up and drop-off from the airport.
The apartment is large, airy has a great shower, comfy bed and is in a safe neihbhourhood. Two mins walk and your on Hollywood Blvd and everything you really need... tours, Metro, drinks and eats.
It's great for first-timers and seasoned visitors.
Staying at Stephen's Hollywood Holiday was such a treat. So peaceful, clean, and delightful. I opened the windows everyday I was there for a refreshing cross breeze, and awoke each morning to sun streaming through the windows and then stretched out in the yoga/dance studio. Both my dog, Luna, and myself felt as though this was a home away from home and would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you so much Stephen!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
