Center of Hollywood, quiet, comfy

One of the best locations in Hollywood, central to everything, including trains and buses yet still a quiet neighborhood. This is a bed in the living room, so it is a semi-private situation. Must LOVE dogs!

The Space

One of the best locations in Hollywood, central to everything, including trains and buses yet still a quiet neighborhood. This is a bed in the living room, so it is a semi-private situation. Must LOVE dogs!

I keep the price low because you will be expected too be gone during the day. No sleeping in. I can be flexible on this just let me know.

The apartment is clean, quiet and convenient to all that Hollywood has to offer including the trains and buses.

You will be staying on a really comfy queen size mattress in the large living room. This is more of a Semi-Private situation, not a share but not a private room either. I live in the private bedroom with my mini-Dachshund, Delilah, she's about 13 lbs. This is a great place if you just need a place to lay your head and do not plan on being around the apartment all day. Great for actors coming to LA for pilot season auditions, short term students or persons in town on business. The apartment and the neighborhood have a very relaxed atmosphere, many trees and hills. Yet still in walking distance to everything in Hollywood. Hard wood floors, flat screen TV, cable, wireless internet. Full kitchen. Recently renovated unit. Laundry in the building.
Street parking only.

This is a small cozy apartment, really only designed for myself and ONE GUEST ONLY. If you are a couple traveling too LA for only a day or two, I might consider it if there is a last minute cancellation, however I CAN NOT have a couple staying long term (more than two days).

Towels are provided. $200 security deposit required on all rentals, no exceptions. The cleaning fee is for the maid service that cleans between rentals.

If you have a specific check in time please state this right away as my freelance work schedule is always changing. You must have a way of contacting me via mobile phone or email when you first arrive, there is no buzzer on the outside of the building for me.

Check out is 12 noon on your last day, because I usually have a cleaning service coming in at noon before the next guest arrives. If you need to check out later they may be an extra fee.

The location is at the base of Runyon Canyon, famous for its hiking trails and panoramic views of Hollywood. Convenient walk to Hollywood Blvd, Sunset Blvd, the Chinese Theater, Dolby Theater, the home of the Oscars, Hollywood Bowl, Jimmy Kimmel show, supermarkets and many restaurants. Easy drive to many Hollywood attractions. Hard wood floors, flat screen TV, cable, wireless internet. Full kitchen. Recently renovated unit. Laundry in the building. .

There is free yoga at Runyon Canyon, about a block away, just check Runyon Canyon Yoga on(website hidden)for the times. It is outdoors in the grass, it can be muddy or uneven ground, so take note. I can leave a yoga mat out for you to use, if you request it. There is also a yoga studio called CorePower about three blocks away at Hollywood and LaBrea, $20 a session. The schedule is posted on there website.

Although there is bus and subway transportation near by, if you are coming from the airport, I would suggest you get a taxi or a shuttle service, such as PrimeTime. If you take public transportation from the airport it will take 2 hours of your life and a lot of frustration.

Lastly, here are some attractions/places within walking distance....

You will have access to the 3 laundry rooms and pool.

I live in the apartment and sometimes work there too, so there will be daily one-on-one interaction.

It is very clean and beautiful yet very close to the action in Hollywood.

There are buses on Hollywood, LaBrea and Sunset Boulevards and the Metro subway at Hollywood and Highland Center within walking distance. Please Internet search for more information.
The Ralph's supermarket is open 24 hours at Sunset and Fuller. It is a 5 minute walk away down Fuller.

The living room, kitchen, porch and bathroom. Also the building has a pool and courtyard. The bedroom is off limits.

I live and work in the apartment, so I am around often. I give preference to guest that will be out of the house during the day, everyday. Please state that in your initial email to me.

The quietest part of Hollywood yet still walkable to the action.
Buses and the metro subway are easy to get to on Hollywood Blvd.

  • Kevin was an amazing host. He was kind, considerate, and accommodating. Kevin is also very personable. I chatted with him about work, game of thrones, and other such nonsense. =)

    I would definitely stay again with Kevin the next time I'm in LA. Thanks Kevin!

  • If you are seeking for a very comfortable and safe place in the center of Hollywood, Kevin 's apartment is definitely a good choice for your consideration. It just two blocks about 5 mins walk to Hollywood blvd. And Kevin nice host who you can trust as well as ask anything about LA. That was great time for staying and i would like to highly recommend to all the folks of Airbnb.

    June 2014
  • Staying with Kevin was great. Very neat and clean. He literally stays around the corner from Hollywood blvd.

  • I recommend you Kevin's apartment if you want to stay in LA with a reasonable price and a good location. It is close to Hollywood as he wrote. It takes about 10 min to go to Hollywood on foot. And his apartment is also very close to Runyon canyon(I've never been there, but I heard it from Kevin's former guest). His neighborhood is very quite and I felt safe.
    After I decided to go to LA, I planned most of it. Like where to go and where to eat, etc. I just went out in the morning and I came back late at night. So, in my case, I didn't ask him anything about LA, so he didn't tell me anything about LA. But if you want more information about LA, don't hesitate and just ask Kevin. He's a nice host so he'll tell you about LA.
    One of my good memories in LA is his dog, Deliah. I'll miss her so much. She is cute, smart, well-trained and super accommodating! I'm so sad she is sick, but I hope she'll get better soon!

  • If you want to experience a real LA Hollywood ! It might be the best place for you with a reasonable price :) actually this is my first trip to US and i was alone but i adjusted to live LA very quickly because Kevin is really kind and he always try to help me to explore LA. During i stayed here i could took a yoga class for free at the Runyon canyon( which is my fav place in LA, coz a lot of beauty and handsome ppls are there to exercise lol) and i could go to good restaurants near from home :) and the area is really neat and safe and beautiful! And transportation was really nice even-though i had no car, I'm not familiar with LA.
    Kevin and Delilah(cutest dog)is so nice !! Kevin is really honest and gentle man ! Whenever i need his help he just be there for me, and he took time for me to tour!!!!
    Because of him, i really enjoyed LA !!! I enjoyed the best vacation time ever in my life !!! Don't hesitate 'just book here'
    I highly recommend you to stay here as long as you can !

  • Kevin was very friendly and told me everything about Hollywood including where have fun and meet people and recommended great places to eat. Kevin's apartment is great. I felt very safe walking around and its close to so many well know landmarks, including the famous walk of fame. I was able to come and go as I pleased and I got an upgrade to the bedroom which was awesome!

  • Kevin's place was great. He gave me a free upgrade to the private room because he had a friend staying in the main room and was very helpful when I started to struggle to find my next airbnb place. The location is walking distance to west hollywood, Runyon canyon and all the Hollywood sites... The dog is very cute although it took her a few days to like me. Two thumbs up!

  • Kevin a été très sympathique et plutôt de bon conseil. L'endroit est propre et bien situé. Nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de beaucoup parler mais ce n'est que partie remise. Très bon choix pour qui a besoin d'être près de West Hollywood.

    February 2014
  • Kevin was a great host. This is my first time using airbnb and I'm glad that I had an awesome experience! Kevin was very social and the apartment was quiet, clean, and peaceful. The apartment is near everything in Hollywood and there's so much to do in his area. I would definitely recommend Kevin to anyone! 5stars!!

  • Los Angeles is huge, and living in Kevin's Hollywood apartment definitely made getting around a lot easier. It's located right next to the famed Hollywood Boulevard, with several Metro Rail stops along its stretch. Furthermore, there's regular bus service down the street that goes up and down the boulevard.

    I like living in Kevin's apartment, though I was out for most of the day and only returned to his home to sleep. Yet it provided for everything I needed: a cozy, quiet and clean space. Kevin also had the two cutest Dachshunds with him during my stay. They greeted me every morning and every time I returned to the apartment.

    Kevin was a great host who readily answered all questions that I had. I would definitely recommend this place.

About
I am a 39 year old male from Los Angeles. I grew up in Philadelphia, went to school in Boston (Emerson College) and lived in NYC for 5 years after college. I have been to 35 other countries and love being both a host and a guest on AirBNB. As my guest, I hope that we get along well and have many great conversations. I am a photographer and filmmaker and I love to talk about movies. I love to cook and eat a healthy diet with lots of produce from local farmers markets, Whole Foods and other markets. My Dachshund, Delilah is my best friend and she love's having guest in the house.
