Your Casa Rosada with VIEWS and spa

House - Entire home/apt · Upperton Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90042, United States

The Space

Welcome! We would love to have you stay in the "casa rosada." It's a real deal home where all is handmade/homemade. Filled with gentle surprises from the regal toilet seat to the circular window. It's fun AND comfortable. Interesting AND uncluttered. The VIEW will make you think you're in the mountains but you're actually in LA! Enjoy the terraces, outdoor tub and fireplace, BBQ, fountains and deck for sunrise and patio for sunset. Views for coffee and martinis! French doors and windows and skylite let in the light and views. There's a spa, too with outdoor shower! Whole house fan and hilltop breezes keep you eco cool. AND ALL IS SOLAR POWERED!! Well equipped kitchen for dining in. Chin up and dipping bars and hill are fitness options.

You'll be 10 min from downtown and Silverlake and Dodger stadium. But, why go there when you can enjoy hipster Highland Park and barrio cool Eagle Rock. Norton Simon Museum, Gamble House, Rose Bowl, Occidental College, bus, trains and freeways just down the hill.

Bus lines to Hollywood and downtown are in walking distance.
Freeways and train line is 5 min. away!

Be an eco-tourist! Enjoy our fresh garden greens!

  • Christopher's home was a pleasure. Those photos of the view you can see don't even do the real thing justice. The space and openness and quiet around you is just awesome. The home itself is a joy as well. Everywhere you look there's attention to detail, and style. Great property, great experience.

  • Casa Rosada is absolutely beautiful and Chris is a fantastic host. He made everything incredibly easy for us and made us very welcome. We arrived late on Christmas Eve to find he'd left us cookies and a bottle of wine. The next morning we were able to take in the beautiful gardens around the house. There are a number of different seating areas from which to enjoy the views across the valley and, later in the day, the spectacular sunsets. The house is extremely comfortable with good linens and the kitchen is great. Nearby York Boulevard, called by Conde Nast Traveller "LA's coolest street", has great shops, cafes, restaurants and a good supermarket, but is not terminally cool. We also had some great walks in the neighbourhood around the house and down over the hill into Eagle Rock. Casa Rosada is highly recommended and we will certainly be staying there again.

  • I had a lovely stay Casa Rosada. The neighborhood was quiet and safe, and the view from the patio was fantastic. Chris was an excellent host: friendly, welcoming, and quick to respond to any questions I had. The road up to the house is single-lane and a bit exposed for a short distance at the top. It might not be the best place for a new or especially squeamish driver, but as long as you are attentive, it's perfectly drivable.

    Jennifer, come back any time! Our road is many times safer (no accidents in our 15 yrs here.) and infinitely preferable to the average LA freeway. Come, enjoy this special place one and all.

  • Casa Rosada exceeded all our expectations - a magical retreat in the hills. All the living space inside is great, and the terrace/garden out front is beautiful - big, completely private, with amazing views out over the city. It's the perfect place for anyone looking to relax, read or write. And we really liked the neighbourhood. There are some very cool vintage shops, restaurants and cocktail bars on York Blvd, and a really friendly vibe overall. Ace!

  • This was an awesome place. My daughter and I were overwhelmed by how beautiful this place was. And I met a wonderful artist who is a neighbor. My daughter and i would love to come back again. We loved being there and were sorry to leave.

  • Chris came through for us on a last minute booking after another property unexpectedly left us hanging. He's a fabulous, attentive host, clearly in love with the neighborhood and happy to communicate with the guest daily to ensure a great experience. Also a pleasure to work with on the little things (like getting into the house early with groceries, wine and flowers for the guest we were booking for). Easy to book and work with, and a great place to stay, feeling remote in the middle of the city, Casa Rosada was a pleasure. Our family staying there had a great stay and we enjoyed visting them there. Highly recommend.

  • We had a great time. The view was amazing, and it was so quiet. We really enjoyed watching the hummingbirds and hawks from the back yard, which overlooks a deep valley. Overall, a beautiful space, and very comfortable.

    thanks Suy

  • A beautiful and lovely home up in the hills... Most amazing view of LA I have ever had the pleasure to wake up and go to sleep to! Highly recommended, better than a 5 star hotel!

  • if you want to spend some time in a fun energetic house with fun
    details this place will not disappoint. if you want to relax and take in amazingly tranquil vistas of the LA foothills at sunset from a multitude of comfy seating areas that won't be a problem either.

    Casa Rosada is all sweetness & light.

    Christopher is a welcoming, happy and organized host. we encourage your visit and hope to return sometime very soon.

About
We are happy and easy. We love this part of LA and we think you will too. We enjoy a glass of wine and a cup of coffee with friends and a nice view. We like travel experiences that refresh us. We think trailers are perfect.
