My husband and I stayed the for 6 nights at this unusual place. Our hosts were so friendly and the gardens were good for al fresno dining and boozing. Bohemian style accommodation that draws back to the 1920s - 1940s the old kitchen was small but provided enough equipment for basic cooking. The bed was really comfortable.This place is a great price considering its in a lovely gardened area in the heart of hollywood. 5 minute drive to universal studios and a 15 min walk to famous hollywood boulevard. The holly wood bowl is also in close vicinity. Great place for the price!

“Bohemian and romantic little apartment!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

This is a lovely little apartment decked out with eclectic, Bohemian furniture and a large, very comfortable bed. The bathroom and kitchen facilities are small but we found everything we used very functional (great flow of hot water)! The apartment is not posh but it's pretty and clean. We had a great two-night stay and will be moving on with fond memories. 15 minute relaxed walk to Hollywood Boulevard where Grauman's Chinese Theater, the Roosevelt Hotel, the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Dolby (formerly Kodak) Theater all are. Fab wi-fi connection so you can look up everywhere you want to go with ease. Also Yvonne is very sweet - all smiles and friendly advice!

“Old Hollywood Meets Morocco”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 for a stay in June 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed (myself and a friend) at this charming downstairs studio (bed plus sleeper) apartment for 3 nights. If you like old Hollywood bungalows, this is your place! Decor is a mix of Moroccan color (cool!) and great vintage. Tiny kitchen (with a very cool vintage gas stove) and bathroom, but great outdoor space attached, so it did not feel like we were on top of each other. The studio was clean and has just the right utensils, etc. Do remember that this is a vacation rental, not a hotel, so stop for supplies at the nearby Trader Joe's. Don't forget the toilet paper and paper towels (if you are going to take advantage of the cute little kitchen!)

“Great Hollywood Location for affordable price”
Reviewed April 9, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This was a nice 2 day rental for us. We booked online and got great communication from the owner. She was very nice, very reasonable and provided us with reliable info about the property and area. We loved using Paypal to pay and we got our damage deposit refunded promptly.

We loved the Location! We had never been to LA so didn't know what to expect. We found the neighborhood to be quiet and safe. We walked with our teenage son and daughter to and from hollywood boulevard several times including at night and had no problems.

The room was small but functional. Kitchen was clean and had everything we needed. We used the pots, plates, cups and small coffee press. Bathroom had a pretty small shower but it got the job done! Nice TV and cable channels. Great wi-fi connection.

The main bed was clean and comfortable. Quiet at night. The pull out sofa bed is, well, a pull out sofa bed. I don't like them so I can't recommend it for adults. If your kids are OK with it then this room works for 4.

This room is not a polished luxury room, I would recommend it for travelers who understand that studios in older homes can have a few rough edges that you have to live with. Having said that, this place also has beautiful elements that make it relaxing and fun.

Liked Best: Location and Value
Liked Least: small shower and bathroom.

“A Lovely and Exotic Hollywood Hills Retreat”
Reviewed March 22, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Absolutely loved our stay here. As I mentioned in my review of Yvonne's other lovely property, the location for this studio was just perfect. Even if you don't have a car the house is within easy walking distance of Hollywood and everything it has to offer and the subway is also right there too. There is also a Trader Joe's to buy groceries at very close as well. Walking along the Hollywood Hills up to the top and then along the reservoir is just one of the many things to do in the neighbourhood itself. Yvonne was the perfect hostess and so helpful to us and the most wonderful person as well and Michael, our neighbour, was the sweetest man ever. It was brilliant to have Yvonne and Michael around. We were the first people to stay at this studio property as we had been staying just around the corner in another part of the house and had loved it so much we decided to extend our trip and Yvonne had just gotten this studio property ready beforehand and so we simply moved our belongings to her new studio. I was able to see the studio as all the furniture was chosen and moved in and it all came to fruition and loved talking with Yvonne about her decorating style. She has the best taste in furniture and everything else! There were luscious Moroccan lanterns hanging throughout the studio which made it all the more exotic. It was the perfect place to stay in every way and the backyard is full of tropical plants and is the ideal place to recline in and catch some sun and relax. It definitely felt like a home away from home and I look forward to returning again soon.
