Three of us stayed here for five nights recently (the last week of June this year). The house was very well represented by the photos and the advertisement. Everything was clean and in good working order.
Terrific location - close to the action in West Hollywood and easy to access key parts of LA.
Pool is fantastic - we spent most of our time there! Highly recommend this property to anyone staying in LA. Great alternative to a hotel. Would stay there again.
Mike is really nice and helpful. He was super prompt to reply and he tried to accomodate us as much as possible (ex: we ran out of propane for the bbq and got a replacement within 1 hour).
The house is wonderfully located, on the hills, at the end of a street, super close to West Hollywood and sunset blvd if you want to have drinks outside.
To be really perfect, I think a few more furnitures outside by the pool could be nice and more silverware/ dishes. Besides that, we loved it and we were sad to leave yesterday. Thanks Mike!
Here's the low down: Mike is The Man. Mike's properties are hands-down the sweetest spots you're going to find in LA. The prices are so reasonable and the experience is real-deal Hollywood Hills. If that's what you're after (and come on, that's what you're after) you'd be foolish to book your stay elsewhere. Couldn't have been better. Don't hesitate. Book it. You won't regret it.
The neighborhood is spectacular. We loved driving into the hilltops among the rich and famous. It felt like a quintessential Los Angeles experience. The house was well-styled, and the patio is terrific. This is a great spot for get-togethers, barbecues, etc. For us, the house was still being cleaned at 5pm on check-in day, which was kind of awkward upon arrival. Not a big deal though. I might recommend further cleaning the pool. Overall, a much better experience than a hotel. So much fun!
Mike was a prompt and responsive owner. It's a great place with good facilities - it does have quite a retro appearance so be prepared for that. Location in the hills is quiet but perfect for descending into the excitement of the Sunset Strip and Hollywood whenever the mood strikes. Overall we really enjoyed our week here!
This place is amazing! Great neighborhood with classic mid century moderns homes. The home itself is totally automated: lights, pool, sound system. The furnishings are too notch. Highly recommended.
Mike's place in Laurel Canyon was exactly as described. Great space that looks as it does in the pictures. The Sonos sound system was also a great addition for music by the pool. The neighborhood is beautiful and the location of the house makes getting in and out of the area pretty easy. Didn't get to meet Mike but he was quick to respond to all messages and made check in and check out very convenient. Already miss my morning stroll to the country store for a coffee and the incredible food at Pace. Wish I could have stayed longer!
We had the most amazing time at mikes mid century Hollywood hills house! The space is beautiful and comfortable and felt like home. Mike is amazing to work with as well, extremely nice and responsive, and provides great information about the house and area before you arrive. We rented it for a work trip and found the internet to be fast and the space perfect for a few meetings. Everyone who stopped by gushed over the space and convenient location! The country store just around the corner made the best lattes in the morning and the pace restaurant was delicious for dinner - all in walking distance! We happened to be in town during the heat wave which made the pool a blessing and so fun! We highly recommend staying in this house. It is exactly the vibe that we had hoped for on our la trip and we all can't wait to go back!
Great house in the hills. Quiet and authentically 60s/70s. It was a great place to host a spirited game of charades.
This is a really great space in a really great location. Mike was very accomodating and helpful and we had a great time!
Mike was a great guest. No complaints here!
Mike is a lovely and polite person. Perhaps not as forthcoming with details on travel plans, which can sometimes create logistics challenges.
A real English man with his lovely Mexican girlfriend, they are nice and easy going. You really want them back...
Mike is one of a kind and I'm happy to call him a long time friend. We met on the streets of Hollywood, two wayward kids just looking for a good time. No, not THAT kind of "good time!" We mainly sought out good music, pretty people & clean(ish) stories to tell our grandkids. As you can see from the pictures of his place, Mike has exceptional taste. But it doesn't stop at home, he's a very sharp dresser as well (this is not an invitation to raid his closet) and his only downside is that you may feel less cool in comparison. And when he says he "knows the city well," that's a huge understatement so take his advice. He'll be able to tell you every hidden gem the city has to offer that will give you a true LA experience.
If you're considering having Mike stay at your place, I would rest freely in knowing he would be an extremely respectful guest. While he's not a "partier," he does seek adventure in anywhere he travels, likes to soak up the regional culture and will probably spend most of his time befriending random locals in the area.
All in all, Mike is a peach.
