The Space

Guest room in my Hollywood Hills home. Private bathroom, flat screen TV, California King bed (my friends call it the W Hotel Suite). Contemporary house....the architect also designed Jackie Collins' house in Beverly Hills.

My house is located in the heart of the Hollywood Hills, just five minutes from the world famous Sunset Strip, 10 minutes from shopping on Rodeo Drive, 15 minutes from the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Dolby Theater (Academy Awards), and 20 minutes from Universal Studios. With reasonable traffic, it is about 40 minutes to LAX.

There is some celebrity history in the Hollywood Hills, including the house across the street!

There are many good bars and restaurants and shopping in the Sunset Plaza area of Sunset Blvd (5 minutes away).

Parking is easy on the street at my house. On a clear day, the view from my house reaches across the city and all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

I haven't included breakfast in the listing.... but I do breakfast sometimes depending upon the guest schedule and interests.

The laundry room is available for your use as well, but not after 10PM

Getting around

Public transportation is not terribly convenient from my house. You really need a car to get around at your convenience in the Los Angeles area.

  • My first time to use airbnb, first time to visit LA, and was travelling by myself, so I was a little worried before arrived. But the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the breakfast was great, and Darrell is super nice, so I had a great stay.

    The view from the terrace was amazing. Darrell even sent me several pics he took in winter.Thank you Darrell !

  • My stay at Darrell's house was fantastic. His beautiful house is set in the hills of Hollywood and truly a gem. He is an amazing host and truly makes you feel at home. I loved all the amazing touches and it felt like a 5 star hotel ! I will be back. Thank you airbnb and Darrell. 10/10

  • Perfect host with the most beautiful house! The downstairs suite was very spacious and beautifully decorated. We had access to a big TV room and outdoor terrace. The views were breathtaking! Darrell is a very inspiring person and it was fun to exchange travel experiences. We will definitely come back again.

  • Wow! Simply amazing place in the Hills, wonderful room, great bathroom, very peaceful and quiet yet so close to Sunset and everything. The terraces give you a wonderful view over LA, still overwhelmed by it. The only letdown was that Darrell was out of town, whom we loved to meet as the house and it's memorabilia spoke of a highly interesting and inspirational person. But I'll be back for sure :-)

  • Darrell was a great host for our stay in LA! His house is in an amazing location and a good distance from the main attractions. It offers amazing views over the city - perfect to unwind after a long day riding the roller coasters of universal studios or sunning it up on the beach!

    He was very informative and offered tips on where is good in the local area. Room was very clean and spacious with a nice ensuite and he even offered us the room next door to watch films in - huge tv and surround sound!

    All in all, perfect host, perfect house, one of the best Airbnb experiences I've had. Definitely worth a stay!

  • This was the best airbnb experience and it was truly above our excpectations. Even better than a five star hotel.
    Unfortunately we only stayed two nights at Darrell's home, since he was booked out.

    Darrell is a perfect host. He is communicative, open-minded and a interesting person.
    His house is amazing and thoughtfully designed. The rooms are very stylish and everything has been tastefully decorated. Even the guest room was big and comfortable.
    The view from his terrace is breathtaking and so peaceful.
    The location was perfect. Very close to many attractions.
    There are no cons.

    Thank you Darrell, we had an unforgettable experience and would love to come back.

  • we had a fantastic time at Darells place! It's an awesome villa in the hollywood hills with a unbelievable view on LA on the terrasse where we had breakfast, and a drink in the night. Darell is very open minded and we regret not having spent more time there to get to chat with him and relax on the rooftop with the great travel books he has !

  • Our stay was amazing ! The pictures do not do justice to this wonderful house ! Darrell was a fantastic host and I highly recommend staying at his Hollywood hills home.

  • Second time at Darrells place, first time we met in person. Definitely a "go to" place for me and Darrell is a very welcoming host. Once again a great stay and surely not the last time. Next time I have to see how the kitchen refurbishment turned out :)

  • This was the best AirBnB-experience ever. Darrell is such a perfect host, he did everything to make us feel comfortable. His house is a dream, the view from the two terraces is gorgeous. The bedroom is very stylish like the rest of the house and the bed is huge and very cosy. We enjoyed our evenings with Darrell on the terrace. He has a lot of very interesting stories to tell and he gave us plenty of tipps what to do in L.A. Sadly, we had to leave after just three nights. But we hope to be back soon for a longer stay. Again, it was perfect, we felt like we were private guests. Thanks a lot Darrell, we will never forget this stay.

CFO for numerous companies, most recently WellPoint, Inc... America's largest health insurance company
Hi... I am semi retired from a long career in finance at several companies, including a very large health insurance company. I currently teach finance at UCLA. In addition to my professional career, I am a musician. I have a grand piano in my house, and I have recorded two full length CDs. I have been an avid runner for much of my adult life and I have completed 51 full marathons all over the U.S. and also in Canada, Italy, Greece and Spain. I have climbed many major mountains around the world, and have been attempting to tag all of the 'Seven Summits' (the highest peak on each of the world's seven continents) I have tagged six of the seven peaks, and reached about 24,000 feet on Mt. Everest. So if I can go back to Everest before I get too old and tag the summit, I will have joined a very exclusive club! I am single and live in this big house by myself, except for a student tenant that lives in my guest house. I look forward to meeting people from around the world and having them enjoy the comforts of home when they travel.
