Mulholland Retreat with Great Views

House - Entire home/apt · Torreyson Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90046, United States

The Space

Tucked away on a quiet street, on one of Hollywood's most cherished enclaves sits this gorgeous Swiss chalet style home.  This street of impressive, celebrity-owned, architecturally skilled houses are much sought after. STUNNING VIEWS from the house and deck take in such notable landmarks in the valley below as Universal Studios & Theme Park, NBC Studios, Griffith Park, City Walk, etc. The Mulholland Retreat is a comfortable alternative to a high priced hotel.

On entering the home, you will find a beautiful dining room that seats eight comfortably.  The kitchen is fully stocked with all the appliances and amenities needed for gourmet dining.  Enjoy the ambience in the family room with cathedral ceilings, huge gas fireplace, 60" Sony flat screen television and right outside a lanai where hummingbirds entertain and breath-taking sunrises greet each morning.

A journey of stairs reveal the many beautiful rooms offered. Massive windows allow light to penetrate every corner of the lower living room with its large gas fireplace and cozy furnishings, baby grand piano and fine art pieces from around the world.

On the second lower level the master bedroom with a queen-size bed and European duvet, has all the comforts of a Honeymoon Suite with its own private bathroom with oversized tub and separate shower.  Two spacious bedrooms occupy the third lower level; one with a queen-sized bed; the other containing two extra-long twin beds.  These two bedrooms share a second bathroom. 

On the outside deck you can sit in comfort around a fire-pit roasting marshmallows or cooking steaks on the outdoor barbecue grill before relaxing in the always heated spa for a night cap.

Location:  The Mulholland Retreat is perfectly situated for fun, entertainment and sight seeing, shopping and night life!!   The house is close to Universal Studios Theme Park, movie and television studios, the Hollywood Bowl, The Walk of Fame, LA’s Sunset Strip and Beverly Hill's Rodeo Drive and is less than 10 miles to downtown L.A. and the Santa Monica beach beyond.  A car should be considered a necessity while staying at The Mulholland Retreat. The property has ample off street parking.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The house met every expectation and catered for all of our needs considering there were 9 people in our group. It was a great experience staying up in the hills and the views were truly spectacular. Transport is one thing that is needed at this place as its a long way up the mountain, but the drive down seeing the Hollywood sign is always exciting. The hosts were 100% helpful. I highly recommend it!

  • Great views indeed! My family and I enjoyed this house so much we never wanted to leave. From the hummingbirds in the balcony to the beautiful backyard terrace with the hot tub, it really transports you to a relaxing sanctuary.

    Vicky was great from the start answering any questions and replying promptly. She's extremely nice and thinks of everything before your arrival. Everything was clean, convenient and just perfect. Would definitely come here again, great location, glad it was our choice!

  • I thought I'd died and gone to Heaven! What an incredibly beautiful home and Alan and Vicky are wonderful hosts. The house is high above Los Angeles and the view is breathtaking. Its peaceful and you feel like you are out of the city because its so beautiful. The house is very clean and I had a large room on the lower level with a very convenient entrance and my own bathroom. The pictures that are provided on the website are true to how the house really is, just gorgeous! Alan and Vicky are superb hosts and I would stay in their house any time that I could!

  • Wonderful location in the hills. Amazing view of the city. Even better was all the wildlife in the area. Owls, hummingbrids, deer. A little nature in the city. Very easy drive to downtown. Very well appointed home: great kitchen, all the electronics you can handle, hot tub, and even a baby grand piano. Plenty of space for a large family. Thank you!

  • Vicky and Alan were the best from the beginning. They were very accommodating. The place was amazing and very easy to find. It was very clean. They showed us around the place and explained everything to us. I loved this place on pictures and even more in person. I definitely recommend this place to everyone, it is well worth it. I will always keep them in mind if I need a place like this again. We were able to surprise a friend for her birthday at this place. She was amazed from the beginning. Thank you to Vicky and Alan for making this possible.

  • This house is awesome, and Vicky and Alan are really good host. My family loved staying there. I am satisfied that I chose this house to have holiday with my family from my country. Vicky and Alan showed us the house politely even though we arrived there at midnight, they are so kind.
    The house fascinated us, because the house is as beautiful as pictuces listed this website, and large as 5 people can relax, and so clean. Besides they prepared some food and drink for us in the fridge.
    We spent really great time there. I wish I could stay there again, and next stay should be longer.
    I strongly recommend this house.

  • My family loved our stay at this beautiful home. Mulholland Retreat is the perfect name for it as it became our retreat after traveling the busy streets of Los Angeles.
    Alan the owner was on hand when we arrived and kindly and patiently showed us around this lovely home. We weren’t able to meet his wife Vicky but she had been communicating regularly with me via email and had asked us our preferences for breakfast and had it all set out for us! What a welcome! Vicky would call periodically just to make sure that our visit was going well and to ask if we needed anything. We felt very well cared for, much more personal than a hotel!
    This lovely home is multi-level and is laid out so as to take advantage of all the best views. The views include looking down onto Universal Studios and Warner Brothers. A very unexpected delight for us was that we happened to be staying over the 4th of July and were able to see the fireworks display from Warner Brothers and other cities such as Glendale and Burbank. This view is from the balcony off of the “den” as Alan called it. But everyday, we would sit there and enjoy the view, the hummingbirds visiting the feeders (I have never seen so many hummingbirds before!), and each other’s company.
    We also enjoyed the architecture of this home as it is full of warm woods and large windows. We loved the multi-levels with the living room on a level down from the entrance, and the master down one more level and finally the other two bedrooms down one more level which also led to the back deck with the spa. Parking was ample with street parking as well as room for two more cars off street at the back of the home.
    Many thanks to Alan and Vicky for allowing us to stay at their home, for welcoming us so warmly, and for helping us bring back wonderful memories of our stay at their Mulholland Retreat!

  • The house is great - really well presented inside and out. The jacuzzi is a great feature! The living room, kitchen, dining areas are large, comfortable and full of the kind of features you'd expect - lovely comfy sofas, large screen TV's, etc. Unfortunately for us, we didn't get to use them too much as we were working most of the week.
    It is about a 10 minute drive to the nearest supermarket / restaurants, so nice and quiet, though a bit of a trek if you expect to be popping in and out of town all day.
    Overall, a great stay. Thanks very much!

People ask me all the time why I open up my home to others so easily. All I know is that we are recipients of all that God has give us and He wants us to share with others. It gives us great joy to have an open heart open home attitude.
