About This Listing
2-story, 2BR, 1.5BA with extra sleeping porch, for sleeping under the stars. Slumber on the pillowy TempurPedic downstairs, and you may never want to leave! Quiet nook in Hollywood - in the center of everything, yet peaceful & nature-filled.
This sweet and centrally located 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath Hollywood apartment truly puts you in the middle of it all, while feeling like you're out in the countryside. Steps from Hollywood Blvd. and just a couple of blocks to Sunset Blvd, you'll be able to walk to all sorts of day- and nightlife, yet still have the luxury, convenience and privacy of having your own apartment to lounge in, as well as the savings of being able to have meals and entertain at home. Although quite spacious the apartment has a 'cottage' like feel to it, with an arty/bohemian interior, a super comfy queen-size bed, fully equipped kitchen, washer & dryer...as well as a kitchy-cozy faux fireplace to gaze into in the evenings! ;] Also, besides the 2 bedrooms, if you're with more people or are traveling with children, we also have plenty of linens and blankets to make up an extra aerobed and/or the sofa.
• Price includes all linens & bedding, pots, pans, dishes, high-speed internet, etc! A great home base to take in the sights and to get a *real* feel of Hollywood! Super ridiculously NICE!
• Please note that although there is no assigned parking space, off street parking can be arranged at a nearby(1.5 blocks from apt.), indoor guarded parking lot for around $15-$20 per day. It's also sometimes possible to negotiate a weekly rate.
• Please message us about availability and any other questions that you may have prior to making a reservation.
• Please note that we will *ONLY* accept a reservation from you if you have a *clear* profile picture *OF YOURSELF* posted to you account. This means *OF YOURSELF*...*not* your baby, *not* your dog, *not* a sunset taken on your last holiday.
We would like to see the person that may be renting our place...seems only logical. Thanks.
• And lastly, please also keep in mind that most Airbnb hosts are regular people who also have regular jobs, families, etc., and that renting out our extra homes or apartments is not our main source of income. Therefore please be patient...we will get back to you as soon as possible.
• No charge for children under 5
We want you to have a great time here, and have no 'curfew'. We do though ask you to be respectful of our neighbors by coming in quietly as possible from a night out.
Please also keep in mine there is a cat here, so the house may not be allergy friendly.
This place is great! Cat's a wonderful host and her place is in such a great location! Thanks for everything Cat!
The cottage was cozy and comfortable for our group. It's very charming and very close to Hollywood Blvd. Warning for those with cat allergies, this place has a kitty that lives here and half of our group had to find other accommodations last minute. Otherwise, we had a nice stay.
Stayed in LA for three nights in August and had a great time. The cottage was bright and spacious. A very quirky oasis in the heart of Hollywood.
Location was great for the boulevard and walk of fame. Plenty of places to eat, drink, shop, etc.
The host Cath was very freindly and helpful on arrival. Even brought her lovely cat back for us to look after.
Only negative was the heat in the hight of the day with no air con. It cooled down quickly at night.
We would recommend this pad to anyone looking for something close to Hollywood. We found it perfect for our needs.
Thanks again Alicia and Cath.
This apartment was awesome, the location was extremely central to all the touristy stuff. If you want a place away from tourists and lots of people then this is not for you. The apartment was clean upon our arrival and very comfortable to stay at. Alicia made it quit easy by leaving the key for us in a secure keybox. The apartment has no aircon and do get very hot, but only on very sunny days.
The cottage was great! Perfect location, less than a mile to the heart of Hollywood. Walking distance to Hollywood & Highland, Grauman's Chinese & Egyptian Theaters, El Capitan, Pig 'n' Whistle, Hollywood & Vine, etc... Super easy drive to the Sunset Strip, Beverly Hills, Burbank, Griffith Park, Silver Lake, Los Feliz...
A friend and I stayed here for one week and the 2 bedroom/1.5 bathroom set up was perfect. It's an older place though (as are most in the area). I was worried about making sure to leave enough hot water for my friend, but I shouldn't have as there was plenty of heat for us both to take full showers and still some. Another unnecessary worry was the no A/C issue. Here on the east coast it gets hot & humid, but the weather in SoCal is so nice and dry that I was chilly at night in the middle of summer.
Alicia was very friendly and helpful. The house cleaner was sick the day we arrived, so she cleaned the whole place herself! Took a little longer, but because of the location we had no trouble finding something to do while we waited to settle in. She suggested a little cafe just down the street, Cafe Audrey, which we ended up making a breakfast stop on several mornings. Good food, good coffee, good ambiance.
Pros: Location!!!!, amenities (it's a whole house after all), Alicia is great, friendly neighbors, LOCATION, comfortable beds. Did I mention location?
Cons: Could get a little noisy on a hoppin' night in Hollywood, couldn't connect to the wi-fi, ants in the upstairs bathroom (no infestation or anything, just older home woes).
If you're visiting Los Angeles for general tourism and pleasure, I'd definitely suggest staying here. Maybe not the best place if you're looking for relaxation or quiet time though, since it's so close to the "action."

About the Host, Chimney
I am a working actress in Los Angeles, finding windows of opportunity for travel between gigs. Because I can not travel as often as I like, I invite the world into my home! I am a full-service hostess: from offering you a cup of tea in the morning, to suggesting fun, unusual things to do, and helping you find your way around this incredible city.
I am from Minneapolis, and am a dual US/Irish citizen, since my family is from Ireland. I speak some French and a tiny bit of Spanish - working on improving both! I am vegetarian, but I do not mind what you prepare/eat in my home.
My cat, Chimney Sweep, is the greatest. Even people who do not like cats seem to love her.
