A hidden oasis in the heart of Hollywood. This Magical carriage house was once owned by silent film star Pola Negri. The living room has a fireplace with french doors that open into a intimate private garden. Their is a dinning room, full kitchen, one bathroom. The 2 bedrooms are located on the second floor. They both have queen beds. There is a washer and dryer on premises and gated Private parking with two spaces. By car the house is 5 minutes from hollywood and vine and many hollywood attractions such as the Kodak theatre, Grauman's chinese theatre and the Arclight theatre. 10 minutes the opposite direction is universal studios. Just east of the house is franklin and vermont which has some of my favorite restaurants in town such as the Cafe Figaro, and Alcove on hillhurst. These are in walking distance. There is a Ralph's and Gelsons supermarket down the street.
Here are some of the house rules. There is no smoking in the house. No pets are allowed. There are no parties allowed. Please be very respectful to the nieghbors. A private parking space will be assigned specifically to you so only park in that space. The Security deposit is refundable within 5 days of departure. Looking Forward to your stay and enjoy.
What a great place! It looked just like the pictures- artistic & charming. Alexander was a great host. He was warm, welcoming and available to address any concerns. Lovely!
Everything was great! Alex met us at the house to open the gate and hand off the keys, and gave us tour of the place. The photos don't lie -- there are beautiful flowers all around the gate, art all over the house, and a lovely patio where we sat to have breakfast and get some work done. Best business trip accommodations ever.
Alexander is an amazing host. The place is so good. I like his art and furniture style. The localciton is also good. Nearby hollowood.
The place was much better than expected! Quiet, charming and extremely well located. The little outdoor space, a joy.
I have recently stayed at Alexander's Carriage House in LA. It is all that is advertised on the site. Historic, charming, & private. It offers a serene experience that is hard to match in the busy city. Just sitting in the Living Room with the double doors open on a nice warm day is spectacular! In addition, the off-street parking is a great bonus.
Alexander is a very hospitable host, and easy to contact. He offered multiple times if there is anything that I needed, even though the residence offered all that I did need.
This location is also quite convenient to many interesting neighborhoods, including Hollywood; and close to freeway access. I was pleased that just north of Franklin Ave, is a nice neighborhood for a morning walk.
I will stay here again when my travels take me back to LA for leisure.
Alexander is an amazing host. The place is meticulous. His art and furniture stand out from any place i have ever stayed before. i wish all my trips are forever in LA just so that i can stay in this truly magical carriage house for every vacation i ever go on in the future. Truly, look no further.
What you see on the pictures is pretty much what you get: a small cute house surrounded by walls so that you can sit in privacy at the patio next to the living room with trees around you. A lot of beautiful art and cool vintage furniture inside. What you don't see is that that things are a bit run down and could do with some extra care. We found garbage on the bathroom floor, the fridge was not clean and we didn't find more than one hand towel for the two of us - if this were mistakes from the cleaning lady or just the way it is we don't know. Alex was very upset when we told him so hopefully it's a one time thing. The house is located in the back of the main building and feels pretty safe to be in. The immediate area is not very exciting (especially not Hollywood Boulevard) but we walked over to Vermont Avenue and Hillhurst Avenue in Los Feliz in 10-15 minutes and found a lot of cool restaurants and shops there.
Alex was a really sweet and considerate guy and we wish him all the best but still feel that we had to write as honest as possible.
