Our past guests love our properties. Here's what they have to say about them.
Hollywood Estate/ Guest House/ Townhouse
Hancock Park Estate
Hancock Park Guest house
"The property is beautiful and very clean. Sharlotte was amazing to work with and very accommodating. I look forward to going back again soon" - Debbie from Baltimore, stayed in June 2016 (Townhouse)
Perfect location - quiet and felt safe
"We enjoyed our stay very much. Everything was as advertised. Great location. Guest house had everything we needed. Enjoyed being in a residential area. Would stay here again!" - Courtney from Georgia, stayed in June 2016 (guest house)
"Sharlotte, our host, was very accommodating and her house is elegant and extremely comfortable. Hancock Park was also an ideal place to stay, being close to Hollywood, Downtown, the Westside etc. Would recommend. Also, my 4 year old nephew stayed and he loved the back garden and playroom." - Simon from the UK, stayed in May 2016 (Estate)
Immaculate and convenient!
"Our family (including a 3 yr old and a 5yr old) stayed here to be close to family members living in LA. Home was just as described with all conveniences. It was lovely. The garage was a big help.Very comfortable and flexible sleeping arrangements and lots of room for a family to spread out. A very walkable location. Roof deck was a special treat. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our long Memorial Day weekend here." - Pat from Philadelphia, stayed in May 2016 (Townhouse)
Comfortable stay at a great location
"We had a very pleasant stay at this Larchmont area townhouse. It's a spacious three bedroom with all the amenities you would need. There is free wifi, cable with Netflix, a fully equipped kitchen, laundry area, and a covered garage. It's fully equipped with ample beddings, towels, etc. Sharlotte is very accommodating and is very efficient with the reservations. Thank you for a wonderful stay, Sharlotte." -Joyce from Manila, stayed in April 2016 (Townhouse)
Brand new. Extremely clean. Great location. Super!
"One of the best locations in LA for a short visit, since it's accessible to everywhere- Larchmont, the Grove, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, West Hollywood, Santa Monica, Venice Beach etc. Brand new and super clean. Large bedrooms with private bathrooms for each room. Great kitchen and dining room. Complete entertainment on TV with Netflix, Amazon and cable. Great view of Hollywood hills from the roof deck lounge. Can't ask for anything more. And Sharlotte is ultra reliable and efficient . Felt very safe. She left no stone unturned. Highly recommended accommodation!" -Toni from the Phillipines stayed in April 2016 (Townhouse)
Great, safe, big home in the heart of LA!
"We needed a large home for 8 adults and 2 babies, who were coming from out of country, and this home fit everyone very comfortably. This is a nice, large home in a very safe area, but in the heart of Los Angeles. You are very close to Hollywood, downtown, and Beverly Hills. Great shopping options for both food and fun. The owner, Sharlotte, is very friendly and professional. She kept in constant contact with me to ensure we were satisfied. She worked around my travel schedule for easy check in and check out. All necessary information is organized for you upon arrival. She even recommended a company for a baby crib rental! In summary, everyone was happy with our choice of home for a week. We would definitely trust Sharlotte next time we are looking for a home!" - Bobby from Singapore, stayed in February 2016 (Estate)
Great place, great location, great host!
"We absolutely loved our stay in LA ...the guesthouse was perfect for our family of 4. The location was perfect in a leafy and quiet area and close to a gorgeous shopping strip in Larchmont. The kids loved having their own space upstairs with a full bathroom and separate TV/retreat area. The master bedroom had a great king size bed and was very comfortable. We really appreciated having the extra space to relax as a family - and would absolutely recommend this guesthouse and Sharlotte to anyone. The guesthouse includes access to a huge backyard with play equipment, grass, volleyball net and BBQ. Sharlotte greeted us on arrival and showed us through- as well as this the instructions and suggestions for outings in the guestbook were much appreciated. Sharlotte was only a phone call away and happy to come out when needed. Looking forward to another visit to LA in the near future." - Antony from Australia, stayed in January 2016 (Guest House)
"What a great house!! Close to everything, wonderful amenities, private yard, clean and the hostess was very accommodating. Would DEFINITELY stay again! - Sherri from Pennsylvania, stayed in December 2015 (Estate)
A beautiful little house in Hancock Park
"Rentals in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles are few. This lovely guest house behind a large residence is perfect if you need to be in the area, a quiet residential neighborhood of large homes surrounding the Wilshire Country Club. It's a perfect place for a couple. The loft bedroom would be good for kids but know that the eaves make the ceiling low. Both bathrooms (ground floor and loft) are full baths, well lit and spotless. Everything in fact is spotless in this pretty place. The kitchen has everything needed to eat in if you wish. There's a nice patio and the play equipment in the side yard belonging to the house is available. The ground floor bedroom has good drawer and closet space. In fact the property is just as described in the listing.
Our host, Sharlotte, was very communicative and responsive, and in fact was on the spot on our arrival, offered various check in options, and was quick with follow up when we departed.
LACMA is a very short drive, as is Larchmont, Paramount Studios, a very good grocery store at Melrose and Vine, Hollywood and many other great destinations. And the neighborhood is utterly quiet, which we really liked. I'm happy to recommend this listing. - Barbra from Chicago, stayed in November 2015 (guest house)
College Homecoming and Family Reunion
"I graduated from USC and since my immediate East coast family (10 adults and 9 children) wanted to attend the Homecoming activities and a family reunion, we decided to rent a house so we could all be together. We rented the main house and the guest house which worked out to be a wonderful decision. The main house built in 1928 is beautiful and in excellent condition. Updates have been made in sympathy to the era it was constructed. All the rooms are large and the bedrooms have walk-in closets. The grounds have play equipment and a badminton net which was fun for the whole family. The location was fantastic and central to many tourist destinations. The owner is nice to work with. We would definitely rent this property again." - Jay from South Carolina, stayed in November 2015 (Estate/ & Guest house)
Family friendly comfortable guest home!
"We really enjoyed our stay in the guest home. Sharlotte, the owner and manager, provided excellent customer service and provided us with additional amenities for our baby (stroller, pack n play). The guest home is situated behind the main home, which is located on a beautiful, quiet residential street with old Hollywood homes. We felt safe and at home throughout our stay. We selected this location over a hotel or apartment because of the ability for our 4-year-old to run outside in the yard and play on the playset rather than being couped up in a hotel room. We also enjoyed the ability to prepare meals with a fully equipped kitchen (for food, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods and Ralph's (Kroger brand), and other specialty stores are all within a couple miles). The king-size master bed was very comfortable and the loft space was a perfect play space for the 4-year-old. The guest home also includes access to wi-fi, Netflix and other digital entertainment. If you are travelling to the area with kids (I would say most beneficial for ages 1 to 4), I highly recommend the Zimmer Children's Museum located in the Jewish Federation Headquarters (note: you do not have to be Jewish!!) It is a very clean, inexpensive, interactive learning museum/play center for toddlers and includes two free classes (art, music etc.) per day and many entertaining exhibits to keep them busy for hours. This is very well hidden and under-publicized, so just want to mention it! The kids also loved the Ghiradelli (Disney Parks) Soda Fountain Shop on Hollywood Blvd., plan ahead and see if there is a kids showing of a Disney movie next-door at the theater during your stay." - Leandra from Ohio, stayed in October 2015 (guest house)
Perfect House for a Family Gathering!
"Great House, Great Location and 1st Class in every respect!" - Jim from Ohio, stayed in October 2015 (Estate)
A gorgeous mansion
"Wow! Amazing Mansion in Hancock Park. Huge and luxurious and a very reasonable price. Great owner. Great for large families or a group of friends visiting LA. Stay here and enjoy LA" - Rob from Colorado, stayed in September 2015 (Estate)
Clean guesthouse and safe neighborhood
"My family and I stayed for 2 weeks in this guesthouse. The house is very clean and simply yet comfortably decorated. The neighborhood is calm and safe. The location is ideal (few minutes from Universal, LAX, Hollywood etc...) especially if you like shopping!! Sharlotte provided us with helpful information... We do recommend this place! . - Marina from Lebanon, stayed in September/October 2015 (guest house)
Absolutely fantastic guest house in a great location!
"We stayed 5 nights in the guesthouse. WE LOVED IT! Our kids, aged 10 & 8, had so much fun having their own separate quarters upstairs, with their own bathroom, and own TV room (which has netfix etc). The house itself was spotless. It had everything we needed. Our bed was so comfortable. The living spaces are spacious. The kitchen is modern. The house has ducted air conditioning. The front house was empty during our stay, so it we had plenty of privacy (although the house is quite private anyway). We hired a car as it made it so much easier to get around. This house was a short drive from Hollywood, Universal Studios, and major LA attractions. There is room to park your car in the driveway. The street is lovely and quiet, beautiful homes, nice neighbourhood. After exhausting days out it was so nice to come home to the guest house and just relax in comfort. So much better than a hotel. We wish we had stayed here longer! Sharlotte was extremely helpful. She was only a phone call away, if needed. We would have no hesitation in recommending this guesthouse to anyone." - Adam from Sydney, Australia, Stayed in September 2015 (guest house)
Gorgeous luxury and affordable!
"I was on a family vacation with my mom, sisters, their kids and my wife. The house was fantastic, conveniently located. The owner was easy to work with and nice. It has a badminton court and playground. Great place for families or large groups. Enjoy!!" - Robert from Colorado, stayed in September 2015 (Estate)
"We absolutely loved staying at the Hancock Park Guest House. As a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids aged 10 & 8), it met all of our needs, and beyond. The kids loved having their own upstairs bedroom room, and their own TV room (with netflix etc) and own bathroom. The house was spotless. Very quiet location, in a street full of gorgeous homes. The guesthouse has ducted a/c which is a plus (we stayed during a heatwave!). I would recommend you hire a car, as you need to drive to most places (call Enterprise, they are great). Our only regret is not staying at the guesthouse longer! Sharlotte is very helpful, and happy to help if needed. So glad we booked this place!" - Kylie from Australia, stayed in September 2015 (guest house)
Excellent accomodations in Hollywood!
"Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed this guest house. Everything was very clean and as described. Sharlotte was wonderful-very helpful, attentive and nice. The property is perfectly located-very close to all of the Hollywood sites. It was a great hotel alternative because of the extra space, kitchen and two bedrooms/baths. The nearby Larchmont neighborhood was delightful and a great place to go to local cafes and/or farmer's market. We would highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again. Thanks!!" -Kay from Massachusetts, stayed in July 2015 (guest house)
"The owner, Sharlotte, takes an excellent care of the property. The place was very clean and neat and as beautiful as expected. Everybody really loved the beautiful house. There were 11 people in my group and the house was still very spacious. The neighborhood was clean and quiet also. This was my first time of renting a vacation home. Sharlotte is very professional and put me at ease and was extremely available when needed. Overall a very lovely experience" - Mi Young & Hyong from Oregon, stayed in July 2015 (Estate)
Great LA Location!
"The guest house was good size and very clean and updated. The location was excellent for our trip to Hollywood and LA: very close to Universal Studios, Dodger Stadium, Hollywood and Beverly Hills. It is in a great old, classic LA neighborhood with wonderful character" - Denny from Central California, stayed in June 2015 (Guest house)
Lovely location for girls getaway!
" This was a beautiful home in an ideal, central location. House was
lovingly maintained and well-stocked. The owner/manager was attentive
and thorough. Highly recommend!" -Rachel from San Francisco, stayed in June 2015 (Estate)
Excellent house and very precise host!
" The house is simply amazing. It's enormous, very comfortable and so spacious. It has everything you need for your holiday or if you need a good, and gigantic, space to work in LA. The quarter is very clean and quiet and you can take a walk to reach the closest shops. Sharlotte has been a perfect host: extremely precise, very friendly and so helpful with all of our needs." - Pierpaolo from Italy stayed in June 2015 (Estate)
Modern, clean, nice and quiet retreat
"This was the second year I've tried traveling without using hotels. And if you do your research, renting a condo or an apartment is by far much better than sitting cramped together in a small hotelroom. You can compare this to the following situation: you book a normal hotelroom and when you arrive you are reqognized as customer no 1 000 000. Your reward is a free upgrade to the Presidential Suite. It's the same thing here. Yes, you pay as much as a fairly good hotelroom costs, but instead of squeezing 4 people into it, you now have a spacious luxury suite with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. How can people even think twice about this? Sharlotte was very quick to answer every request we had, and the place itself was just as nice as the pictures describe, with great A/C and amenities. We rented a car, and could park in the driveway, so parking was no issue. It was the perfect quiet retreat after long days of sightseeing, and we slept very well in comfortable beds. Going to LA? Rent this property. It will make your vacation even better." - Robin from Norway, stayed in May 2015 (guest house)
"The house was amazing ... everything we needed was in it. Sharlotte was so kind to us. We had the best time and the house was just stunning. It is a beautiful amazing home in a perfect location. We will be back and thank you for making our time in LA so incredible." - Marisa from Australia, stayed in May, 2015 (Estate)
All reviews prior to May 2015 are for the guest house only. The estate welcomed our first guests in May 2015
"I have rented several homes through VRBO, and this ranks as one of the best. The guest house is in a beautiful old Hollywood/LA neighborhood. It has been designed and decorated with creativity and excellent taste. My 4 year old grandson thought I bought the playground equipment in the yard for him. (I did not enlighten him.) He had a great time and wants to stay there the next time he is in LA! The location is great for travel. I went to the airport, Beachwood, Los Feliz, and Silver Lake quickly (LA time) and easily. Sharlotte was very professional and helpful" - Brenda from Indiana, stayed in April 2015
Very nice accomodations
"This is a very nice spacious property. Location is great in a very nice neighborhood. It was perfect for our 2 grandchildren (boys 11 & 12). The loft gave them their own space and left the downstairs for the "old folk". Would highly recommend the property" - Ed from Kentucky, stayed in April, 2015
One of the best rentals I have stayed in!
"Sharlotte played the perfect host and gave us all valuable advises needed to go around for the must see spots and shopping; in simpler words she made us feel at home! twice we were given a huge basket of freshly plucked Californian oranges what more can we ask? A very memorable stay that we will cherish for a long time to come... Thank you Sharlotte" - Sam from Dubai, stayed in March 2015
"From the moment we arrived we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Sharlotte the host/owner was great, the unit was very clean and spacious. It was everything we needed and more! The location could not have been better. It was situated a wonderful, safe neighborhood, walking distance to great shopping and restaurants on Larchmont. We definitely hope to be back!" - Matt P. from Minnesota, stayed in March 2015
Everything was up to our expectations
"We spent 5 days in Hollywood and enjoyed our stay in this guest house ideally located. Furniture and all in the house is new, clean and well kept. Sharlotte was available for any enquiry and allways here to help before and during our stay. I would definitely recommend this property." - Christian from Spain, stayed in August 2014
"We are a family of 5 with 3 children from France. All I can say about
this property is : fantastic ! This guest house is great, clean with
high standard equipment. The neighborhood is awesome and safe, ideally
located to reach all the places we wanted to visit (Hollywood, Venice
and Santa Monica beaches, Universal Studios, Beverly Hills, The Groves,
Citaled Outlet, etc... We met Sharlotte, the owner, at the check in and
she gave us some very good and useful advices about some restaurants and
places to visit. We definitely recommend this guest house." -Sheung from France, stayed in August 2014
Very clean, perfectly located and stocked with amenties
"This is the perfect place to rent if you have kids, want a kitchen and
want to be in the middle of everything. It is spotless and very well
maintained. Everything you need is provided, including robes! We loved
being in the neighborhood but essentially being in the middle of
everything without the noise and crowds. Everywhere we needed to go was
close in one direction or another. Sharlotte was an awesome host, and
attended to us like guests in her own home. I would caution that
the ceiling is sloped on the second floor. My older teenager child is
5'10" and had a little problem in the bedroom because of her height. My
younger preteen old loved it, especially the tv space with throw
pillows, but she is much shorter. This is a guest house behind a
residential house. Therefore, if you have rowdy teens or you like to
party well into the night, this is probably not the place for you. If
you like a serene and spotless location amidst the chaos of Los Angeles,
this is perfect for you. - Lauri from Philadelphia, Stayed in August 2014
Just a perfect house for a family
"Everything was just perfect. The house is at a strategic location. We stayed 6 days and were able to visit almost every site within 30 min." - Fabrice from France, stayed in July/ August 2014
Excellent, modern LA home with great location!
"We loved the rental home for our family of 4, especially appreciating the very modern appliances (washer and dryer and fridge with top working filtered water). Sharlotte brought us fresh fruit from their garden daily, which was a real treat! The air conditioning was also brand new and kept us comfortable. The upstairs kids' room is more ideal for younger children, although my very tall teenager said she did not mind at all. Great location. All in all, we would book this again for sure, and looking at the photo makes me wish I were there now!" - Gian & Alexi from Denmark, stayed in July 2014
Beautiful, comfortable and tranquil!
"Sharlotte has designed a beautiful and comfortable guest home that is absolutely perfect for a small family. The guest home has everything you could possible need, including extremely comfortable beds (which are often hard to come by). Warm, bright sunshine in the early afternoon and a cool breeze flowing through the sliding doors in the evening made for a blissfully tranquil experience. Everything in the guest house is new and high end, and was perfectly suited to our needs. Not to mention . . . I could get used to living in such a stunning and central neighborhood in Los Angeles (and with such great hosts). It was a one-of-a-kind experience. Thank you, Sharlotte and Gregory, for a lovely experience." - Jen from Texas, stayed in June 2014
Wonderful, spotless house!
"Beautiful home, very clean and with everything you will ever need! Will definitely recommend this house to others! Thank you very much sharlotte!" - Valeria from Brazil, stayed in May 2014
Hollywood Extended Stay
"Just spent 11 nights in this wonderfully located self contained guest house. Located just a couple of miles away from the busy hollywood strip in a very leafy, quiet area. With four kids aged 10 -17 it was perfect. Able to utilise fully equipped kitchen and also drive a couple of minutes to neighbouring areas such as Larchmont VIllage, Grove shopping and nearby supermarkets for all your supplies. Definately need a car in LA to explore local attractions. Major tourist destinations such as Rodeo Dr, Hollywood sign, getty centre, Universal Studios all about 10 - 15 minutes drive depending on traffic. Downtown LA, Santa Monica about 25 - 40 minutes drive, DisneyLand Attactions around 1hr drive to Anaheim. Highly recommend this guest house for families and Sharlotte is a pleasure to deal with." -Steve from Australia, stayed in April 2014
"Our 5 night stay for spring break was absolutely perfect. The home has everything you need and was exactly what we had hoped for based on the listing. Spotless, in wonderful condition, and Sharlotte was always just a text away. We would absolutely stay here again and will recommend it to all of our friends. And the property's location couldn't have been more convenient. Wonderful!" - Rachel from Atlanta, GA stayed in April 2014
Everything was Great!
"Sharlotte's guest house was perfect for our short stay in la
during spring break. It was the perfect fit for our family - 2 adults
and 2 teens. Great location in a nice residential area, while still
being close enough to the sites we wanted to visit. The basket of
fresh, yard-picked oranges was a nice touch. Thanks Sharlotte." - Peter from Canada, stayed in March 2014
Great Place in a Great Location!
"We stayed at Sharlotte's guesthouse during our spring
break trip to la and really had a great time. Her home is luxurious as
she claimed and it is in a great location within a short driving or
walking distance to most locations we wanted to visit. We will come
back to stay at her house again in our next trio to la"
- Jiab from Dallas, TX, stayed in March 2014
Beautiful home in a wonderful location.
"We truly enjoyed our stay at this property. The home was spotless, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. My 4 children enjoyed the space to stretch out, the outdoor play area and the access to Netflix during our time there. Sharlotte was incredibly responsive, gave us wonderful advice regarding local attractions, shopping and food. I would highly recommend a stay here and look forward to returning." -Ann from Iowa, stayed in January 2014
Very Chic Home - Close to EVERYTHING!
"Owner was very pleasant, home very nice and clean - everything you need is provided. Home is close to everything, shopping, Universal Studios, short drive to Disney - which is a must!! Santa Monica Beach only 20 minutes away. We've experienced it all! Drove to the mountain tops to view Hollywood Sign and LA lights! Great trip and home very convenient! Will certainly stay here again!" - Sandra from Maryland, stayed November 2013
Impeccable, Clean, 5 Star accomodation...Brilliant
"You can't beat this accommodation in LA.Brilliant safe and beautiful neighbourhood.5 minute drive to Chinese Theatre and Sunset Blvd.10 mins to Universal Studios.Melrose Ave for dinning 3 mins away.Larchmont Village a favourite and the best local area 5 mins away. Host Sharlotte was professional and nothing was a problem.Thoroughly recommended AAA" - Gary from Australia, stayed in September 2013
Immaculate guest house to relax and enjoy LA!
"This guest house is very high standard. The comfort, the equipment and the location of this flat provide the best value for money you can ever find. The place is brand new with nice features. The landlord is very nice and helpful and the area is very quiet despite the fact you are very close to the tourist spots of LA. We will definitely stay there again next time!!!!" - Hadrien from France, stayed in August 2013
Lovely home and neighbourhood
"A very well presented, clean place to stay. It was plenty big
enough for our family of four. The location is spot on. Not too far
from the very busy areas, but far enough away to be quiet. Everything
is an easy commute. Sharlotte is very easy to deal with and on hand if
you have any queries. We would recommend this place to anyone wanting a
nice neighbourhood to stay in." - Sue & Tony from Great Britian, stayed in August 2013
"As a family of four (2 kids: 17 and 11 years old), our stay at
Sharlotte’s guest house exceeded our expectations. Although she provided
a very detailed and thorough description on VRBO, we were thrilled
that every photo she posted and word she wrote was true! Spotlessly
clean, modern furniture, appliances, TVs, loft... We loved it! We were
accommodated very comfortably and had luxuries that are rare when
staying at hotels or other locations while travelling. As well, the
location of the house was great as it was in close proximity to grocery
stores, attractions, and many restaurants. Sharlotte was very helpful,
and so friendly, throughout our entire stay. She provided excellent
advices on where to go and how to use our limited time to the best of
our ability which we gratefully took. She also provided a guestbook with
excellently written instructions and great recommendations. All the
amenities the house provided were loved by our family. The kids loved
the loft and spent time there in the evenings after our long days
touring the city. Lastly, it was very convenient to park our car on the
main house driveway, it was a definitely a great feature! Overall, our
stay in LA was incredible, and staying here only enhanced our trip. We
will recommend to all our friends and family who plan to visit LA in
the future" - Igor from Canada, stayed in August 2013
Beautiful and quiet
"We stayed here with our 2 children (4 and 15) and had a really
great time! The home was really beautiful and accommodated all of our
needs. The neighborhood is stunningly beautiful and very quiet. The
home is very convenient to almost any Los Angeles activity you can
think of. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks, Sharlotte!" - Rochelle from Texas, stayed in August 2013
Superb, beautifully furnished luxury accomodation
"We are a family of four with boys aged 12 and 15 and this
accommodation was absolutely perfect for us. It is beautifully
furnished to a very high standard and is equipped with everything that
you could possibly need away from home. It is perfectly situated for
Hollywood. Netflix meant we could watch movies together in the evening
and relax after a full day touring the city, there were even fluffy
bathrobes available to chill in after showering in the large powerful
shower, the separate bedroom and chilling area upstairs gave our boys
some space and their own TV too. The iPod docking stations are a great
addition and the iPod alarm clocks synced well with our our own apple
products. Sharlotte was a fantastic host - available for any query and a
good guide book with info awaited us in the property. We were on a 17
day trip to California and had spent the previous 8 nights in hotels so
to have flexibility and such high quality accommodation was a very
welcome change for us - the beds were the best we had slept in, we were
sorry to move on to our next location after such a wonderful stay in
LA as our 4 days were so packed with activities we didn't get the
chance to really use the facilities to their full - there was a
barbecue and outside dining area that we didn't get time to try but our
boys enjoyed the shared yard area where they played ball and shot some
hoops and Sharlotte's son joined in too. We simply loved the place and
if you are looking for somewhere in LA of a very high standard then
this is the place for you. We will be telling all our friends that this
is the place to stay when visiting LA." - Jane from Great Britian, stayed in July 2013
Cute Guest House!
"We loved your home . It had all that we could possibly need for our
stay! Location was great , safe and close to many restaurants,
shopping and attractions." - Sue from Canada, stayed July 2013
Great place for holidays in LA
"Everything is perfect, great place, good location." - Helene from Belgium, stayed in July 2013
Excellent Location and spotlessly clean
"Our stay in Sharlotte's home was great.. The apartment was spotlessly clean and spacious with lovely appliances and decor and Sharlotte is an honest and friendly host. The location is a short 3 min bus trip (or 30 min walk) to a major shopping complex and Paramount Studios and a 10 min walk to a lovely shopping village. Universal Studios is a 10min drive away and Hollywood is assessable by the bus (with a stop right at the door). The apartment would be great for a family. We thoroughly recommend Sharlotte's apartment. A great place to stay in la." - Louise & Annie from Australia, stayed in July 2013
Clean, Close to everything, Comfortable. Loved it!
"Tons of space, super clean, organized, everything we
needed was there. We have food allergies so the kitchen was a big
help, complete with everything! Would highly recommend this property.
Go to The Getty Center, La Brea Tar Pits, Hollywood Sign, The Griffith
Observatory, Hollywood Walk of Fame, see a movie at El Capitan Theater,
Eat at Mel's Diner, go to Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, Malibu, and
"do lunch" at Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills. This is safe
neighborhood, beautiful large homes with gorgeous landscaping, a place
you want to come home to! We enjoyed our stay here and cannot wait to
come back" - Deanne from Florida, stayed in June 2013
Perfect Home Away from Home
"Our family of five just returned from staying in
this beautiful Hancock Park guest house. The home is beautifully
furnished and decorated and was spotless upon our arrival. Everything
is provided to make a family feel at home when on vacation. We
especially enjoyed the private patio...a perfect place to enjoy a glass
of wine in the evenings. The home is located in a very picturesque,
safe neighborhood that is convenient to getting around the L.A. area.
There are also many restaurants and stores nearby. Sharlotte was
extremely helpful and professional from the minute of our first inquiry
until the prompt return of our deposit. We had plenty of privacy and
knew that she was also available should we have any questions. We
would love to return to this property the next time we visit L. A.!
Don't miss the Larchmont Farmer's Market, Griffith Park Observatory or
the Getty Museum." - Cathy from New Orleans, stayed in June 2013
A home away from home...
"Staying at the Guest House was far better then any hotel. It was
the best decision I made. The House was clean, spacious and close to
shops, beaches and attractions. Amongst a peaceful quiet neighbourhood,
I found it relaxing after a day's site seeing and shopping. The
property has a backyard with lush green grass and equipment for the
children to play on. As a single mum of three children, I felt safe and
secure being there. The owners gave us the privacy we needed, yet
were available to assist us in anyway. They provided a well organised
manual on how to operate/use the facilities within the guest house and
provided suggestions on where to eat, shop etc... I found this to be
most useful. I would recommend this property to anyone and if I am
fortunate enough to come visit the States again, I will certainly stay
here... My home away from home..." - Sonja from Australia, stayed in May 2013
"We are a family of 4 - we had a wonderful vacation at this
beautyful new renovated guesthouse. Family Blake are wonderful and so
helpful hosts. The house was spacious - kitchen so well equiped -
children's department with own bathroom was cosy and our girls just
loved it!! Location just great. We would recommend this place at anytime
- and hopeful come back ourselves one day! Thanks for a great stay!!" - Rachel from Denmark, stayed in April 2013
Fantastic Family Rental in the Best Neighborhood!
"My husband and two children spent two nights in Sharlotte's rental. We had everything that we needed in a very family friendly and comfortable house. My kids enjoyed playing in the yard and my husband and I enjoyed the comforts of a high tech entertainment house. The location was great - close to everything in la that we planned to see. The owner was very accomodating, especially to the needs of our baby. We always rent houses for our trips and we will definitely book this house for any of our future trips to la." - Amanda from Chicago, stayed in March 2013
Perfect Home away from Home!
"We found this property very comfortable. The house was just the right size for two friends with 'just about adult' children(3). The living room, dining and kitchen fit us all quite well. The house was easy to find and in a prime location. We took early morning walks in the neighborhood. The owner provided prompt responses to our inquiries about the property and was an excellent host. I would highly recommend to friends and family." - Jennifer from Arizona, stayed in March 2013
Cozy Little Guesthouse
"My mom, sister and I stayed here for about a week in March. It was
very comfy and even though you're in LA it's very quiet. Although its a
guesthouse we had a lot of privacy! Sharlotte was wonderful. She was
very detailed and if there was a problem she handled it asap. She also
knows LA very well which is a big plus if you're not familiar with the
city. Us 3 girls felt very safe...we felt like guests. The decor was
beautiful. Will definitely stay here again!" - Shermaria from Texas, stayed in March 2013

Outstanding location and property
"I lived in the Los Angeles area during the 1990s and knew the area fairly well. This location gave us great access to every area of LA. We went to the beach, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Dodger's Stadium, UCLA, Sunset Boulevard, and Downtown during our trip. Having 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms with kitchen and dining made our stay very comfortable. The Grove, Trader Joes, CVS, and Ralph's are all within walking distance, but we chose to drive. Beds are comfortable and rooms are spacious. If you are considering two hotel rooms, then opt for this instead." - George from Arkansas, stayed in June 2016 (lower unit)
Fantastic LA Getaway!
"We had a great time. The house is a beautiful space with a modern feel. Huge bedrooms with plenty of space for everyone. The house is in a great location. A quiet neighbor hood, but it's central location made getting around easy. Great restaurants are within walking distance, as is the Grove and Farmer's Market. We would definitely stay here again :)" - Fiona from Arizona, stayed in June 2016 (lower unit)
Lovely property with lots to do nearby
"This is a well kept, spacious property in a great location! The Grove and Farmers Market are nearby as well as several museums (LACMA, Petersen Automotive Museum, LaBrea Tarpits). The owner, Sharlotte, was friendly and responsive. She provided a crib and high chair which was convenient as we were travelling with a little one." - Rob from Toronto, Stayed in May 2016 (lower unit)
Great house in a great location
"Our recent stay in LA was our first time to try VRBO and we couldn't have been more pleased. The house was great 3 bd.each with a nice flat screen TV with roku, 2 bath and a large living room with TV. The house was very neat and clean with fresh sheets on the beds and lots of towels. The location was just a few blocks from the Grove Market Place and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. On our arrival I followed our self check in instructions which were very easy to follow. Sharlotte came by and introduced herself and her son and if we needed anything just to let her know. Our stay was perfect. Thanks again Sharlotte if we come to LA again I will definitely check to see if your place is available." - Greg from Texas, stayed in April 2016 (lower unit)
Best location in Los Angeles
"This is the perfect place to stay in Los Angeles. Very conveniently situated near the Grove in the Miracle Mile district, it is close to everything: Melrose, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, West Hollywood, restaurants, supermarkets, etc. The neighbourhood is safe and very quiet. The flat is huge, all three bedrooms are big, very comfortable beds with high-end spotless white linen, well-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, TVs in bedrooms and living room. A parking place is available next to a bush of colourful and beautiful roses. And most of all, Sharlotte was always available to help or give an advice or information. I sincerely hope that we will be able to stay again in the flat during our next visit. Thank you Sharlotte and see you soon." - Gisele from Switzerland, stayed in April 2016 (lower unit)
Fabulous Home Close to All the LA Fun
"Our family of 4 - mom, dad and 2 teenagers, stayed at Sharlotte's place for Spring Break 2016. We had the best time. Lovely neighborhood that is within walking distance to fantastic restaurants and shopping. We did all the "touristy" things and also did a couple of college visits and the location was great. We had an internet issue which...when you have teenagers is a 911 type situation...and Sharlotte did everything to get it fixed quickly. The home is clean and spacious and had everything we needed. We would absolutely stay here again when we come back to California. I highly recommend this home!" - Lesley stayed in March 2016 (upper unit)
Fabulous apartment in perfect location!
"We were a group of adult family and friends staying in LA for 12 nights and had a fabulous stay in Sharlottes apartment. The apartment is large, comfortable, spotlessly clean with high quality furniture and amenities. The TV, wi-fi, heating, washer and dryer were all great. The bedrooms are all large with walk-in robes, the kitchen is large with excellent facilities, the main bathroom is really big and there is a smaller second bathroom. The location is perfect - LA is a driving town but there is plenty you can walk to from this apartment which we loved. Farmers Market and the Grove shopping centre are only an easy 10 minute walkaway and there are many shops, restaurants, departments stores in the surrounding streets. Parking is easy directly at the front of the property. Sharlotte was the perfect host and made sure our stay was smooth and enjoyable and was always available for any queries. I would not hesitate to stay in this property again - we had a fantastic holiday in LA and this apartment was one of the factors that made it so enjoyable." - Caroline from Australia, stayed in January 2016 (lower unit)
Wonderfully comfortable, spacious family home near the Grove
" We stayed for a few days here in West Hollywood with my mother, husband and our 3 children (6), (5) and (18 months); and loved the handy location that Sharlotte's house was situated, great spot close to all the tourist spots.. It was within walking distance to the Grove that had restaurants and a good amount of shopping (Best of all our fave the Cheesecake Shop)....Also a Ralph's around the corner to get groceries which was very handy. Sharlotte was very kind to have all the information you needed to travel in the area and find local eateries in her folder . The house was well equipped and rooms were big and spacious. A TV in each room was quite handy with children and a grandparent all wanting to chill out in their own areas. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again... and would also recommend this accommodation to family and friends. Great for families, extended family vacations. Sharlotte was a pleasure to deal with and was very kind and accommodating, even being so kind as to send us our belongings that we left in her dryer. Thank you Sharlotte." - Eleasha from Australia, stayed in October 2015 (lower unit)
Excellent! Clean and very well equipped.
"Our whole family enjoyed staying at the apartment. It was great to spread out and enjoy being in a comfortable space after staying in hotels. Sharlotte was very friendly and helpful and easy to deal with. We loved the fact that we could walk most places and enjoyed being in a lovely neighbourhood. The apartment has everything needed for a family including a super washing machine and fridge etc. Highly recommended." - Denise from Australia, Stayed in October 2015 (upper unit)
Perfect location, clean and spacious
"This property is very well kept and provides everything you require. The location is perfect and we would definitely recommend it to anyone. Sharlotte, the owner was very helpful and always available if needed." - Sharon from the UK, stayed in September 2015 (lower unit)
Very Nice Stay!
"Had a wonderful vacation in this house. Myself, my wife and our 3 children - 18, 13 and 10. There is not a whole lot more I can add to what has already been said. The house is very clean. Comforatble furniture. Quiet neighborhood, yet close enough to drive/walk to everything. Sharlotte was very easy to work with - very responsive to all my emails and questions prior to the visit, lives on site, so she met us when we arrived and was available to answer any questions we had during our stay. Our security deposit was promptly refunded after the visit. If our family decides to make another East Coast to West Coast trip again, Sharlotte would be the first person I contact to see if her place is available." - Dylan from New Jersey, stayed in August 2015 (upper unit)
Perfect West Hollywood Home
"The home was very well organized and clean, as depicted in the photos. The bedding was amazing comfortable. Our stay there with 4 adults and 2 small children was pretty perfect. The neighborhood is very convenient and we walked to many nearby cafes, parks and attractions. Our host was very welcoming. We enjoyed our vacation and would definitely stay in this wonderful home again." - Loraine from Maryland, stayed in August 2015 (upper unit)
Fabulous place to stay
"My husband and I and our four girls stayed in Sharlotte's rental and were pleasantly surprised. The pictures don't do it justice. The place was immaculate and very spacious. We all had enough room to spread out and not be in each others way. It was convenient to everything we wanted to do in Los Angeles. It is an older building so we could hear people upstairs but it wasn't disturbing. We will definitely recommend this rental to others and hope to visit again." - Michelle from Massachusetts, stayed in July 2015 (lower unit)
"This apartment is fantastic! Spacious, beautifully decorated and very clean. The apartment is also located in a very nice and quiet area which made the stay even more pleasant. My family and I would like to heartily recommend this accommodation which in our eyes has it all." - Therese from Sweden, stayed in June/ July 2015 (upper unit))
Great Property. Very clean and well furnished.
"Loved the property. Very clean and neat which is a must for me. Beautifully furnished and well maintained. Property manager was available upon request and provided us with lots of information regarding out stay and surrounding area. Would definitely stay again and would highly recommend to a friend." - Tierna from Pennsylvania, stayed in June/ July 2015 (lower unit)
Fabulous Home Near all the Hollywood Fun!
"This was the perfect place to stay! It was close to all the Hollywood/LA attractions (Universal Studios, Hollywood/Highland, The Grove, etc...) After a long, fun filled day of sightseeing, we enjoyed relaxing in this beautiful, comfy home. It was very clean and spacious. Also, there are many stores (Trader Joe's, CVS, KMart, Whole Foods, the Farmer's Market at The Grove) for daily essentials/snacks and restaurants nearby. Sharlotte was so helpful and wonderful to work with from booking till checking out. We would definitely stay here again!" - Kathy from Georgia, stayed in June 2015 (upper unit)
Amazing vacation rental and incredible host!
" I booked this home for my family who was in LA for an event. Being a property manager/owner myself, I am very picky about accommodations. Sharlotte was an exquisite host! One of my rules is cleanliness. The home was spotless! When we walked in it felt fresh. The kitchen was fully stocked for my family who loves to cook and the bathrooms had enough fresh towels to go around. Being close to the Grove was very convenient for family get togethers. If you are looking for an apartment to rent that is centrally located in LA, this is your place!
Thank you Sharlotte for being so kind and loving to my family. I look forward to renting from you again very soon and recommending your homes to my friends." - Debra from Los Angeles's family stayed in May 2015 (upper unit)
"We really enjoyed our stay here. The neighbourhood is quiet, and our accommodation was fantastic. Absolutely loved the layout of this place! Sharlotte was really cool and made sure we were comfortable at all times, even popping in to say bye the day we checked out. I will definitely be staying there again." - Rose from Australia, Stayed in April 2015 (upper unit)
Property is exactly as described in the listing!!!
"Such an excellent property for a family stay in Los Angeles! Spacious three bedrooms. Very clean. Tastefully decorated. Very comfortable, with full amenities. Great location-- walking distance to restaurants, super markets, and the grove! Sharlotte is very efficient and professional. A must for LA!" - Joyce from Phillipines, stayed in March 2015 (upper unit)
Spacious, clean digs; wonderful host
"We rented the apartment for a one-week family vacation in L.A. in March and it did not disappoint. The place is very much as advertised: clean, well situated and amazingly spacious (I mean REALLY spacious, the photos don't really do it justice). Beds are large and amazingly comfortable, linens white, clean and crisp. Despite its proximity to a main street, the apartment is very quiet at night and we all had amazing sleeps. Multiple Roku-equipped TVs kept our kids (11 and 15) happy and out of each others' hair. The apartment is an easy walking distance to lots of great restos--we particularly loved the FIsh Grill on Beverly Blvd (Kosher Mexican!) and Tinga on La Brea for tacos. Milk on Beverly has amazing bespoke ice cream and baked treats. For cheap, varied meals and local colour the farmer's market in the Grove can't be beat. Other nights we bought prepared food at a walkable Whole Foods and ate in the apartment. If you want a latte in the mornings the Coffee Bean and Tea leaf is a quick two-block stroll.
Self-serve check-in/check-out using combination lock was a breeze. Sharlotte was a friendly, attentive but non-obtrusive host. She dropped by to make sure everything was all right and dropped (clean fluffy) beach towels off the same day we requested them. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the apartment to anyone who wants a great, central location in the LA area. - Emily from Canada, stayed in March 2015 (lower unit)
"The texts and the photos perfectly describe the property and Sharlotte was fast and helpful once we needed her. Couldn’t be more pleased with my stay. I recommend it and would rent it again in a future visit to LA." -Pablo from Argentina, stayed in February 2015 (lower unit)
Beautiful Property with all the amenities of home
"Beautiful property with all the amenities of home” "This property is kept meticulously clean! It has a fun and modern decor, with everything you need. From easy access to the Grove to the private and quiet atmosphere, this is a must stay place for anyone who wants to play Hollywood!" - Christopher from Fresno, CA, stayed in February 2015 (upper unit)
Wonderful property in fantastic location!
"We were really delighted with our property. It was immaculate and had many great ammenities. Sharlotte had thought of everything, including providing washing powder,soap, shampoo, paper towels,coffee/tea, bath robes and even welcome choocolates! The place was spotless and was walking distance to the grove.Would highly recommend and Sharlotte was on call for any questions." - Mark & Rhonda from Australia, stayed in January 2015 (upper unit)
Spotless property in a fantastic location!
"Sharlotte has done an amazing job with this property, she has thought of everything you could need.Fantastic location, a ten minute walk to the grove in a beautiful street.the property is spotless and the beds are very comfortable. thanks Sharlotte for making our stay in LA so comfortable." - Leah from Australia, stayed in January 2015 (lower unit)
"This place was absolutely perfect and we are ... um ... picky! The home was extremely clean and Sharlotte has thought of all the details: laundry basket, robes, extra blankets, etc. The house is nicely decorated while not giving the impression you are staying at someone 's home. Sharlotte was impressively responsive and extremely thorough with instructions as well as helpful suggestions. Our family of four fit comfortably in the place which says a lot since we are spoiled suburbanites! The place could easily accommodate 8. The water pressure was great and the kitchen had everything we needed. Location is great - seemed like everything was within 30 minutes at most. If there was anything somewhat challenging, it would be the parking. When possible we backed in. If not, someone would jump out and guide. But really, this was so minor! If we come back to LA, we will stay here again!!" - Stephanie from Texas, stayed in December 2014/ January 2015 (upper unit)
Fantastic Apartment, Ideal Location
"The apartment was just what our family of 5 needed after driving across the country to stay in LA, well presented, clean and spacious. Property access and usage instructions all very clear and simple, one of the best organised and convenient processes we have seen on our travels. The amenities all super neat and tidy / functional, with a superb galley kitchen and we especially enjoyed the separate bedroom spaces. it was great to meet the owner and her family. Sharlotte was responsive to our need for information and beach towels even though it was into the Fall season. Would thoroughly recommended staying in this location as it was convenient to all WeHo attractions by car. Grove Shopping Centre and Farmers Market close by, and everything else you could need a "stone's throw" away. Off street parking a bonus! Definitely go LaLux Apartments." - Paul & Jane from Australia, stayed in November 2014 (upper unit)
Excellent Home Away from Home
"This listing is very nice accomodations. it is listed exactly accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, very quiet street. walking distance to the grove, in which is an excellent place to shop and purchase groceries as well. The property is very clean and well maintained. My daughter fell in love with the decor, colors and layout of each room. I would recommend this property to family and friends. We went to Beverly Hills Rodeo Drive, Greystone Mansion, Hollywood Blvd and Chinese Theatre, drove up to the Hollywood Sign. Went to the Grove 3 times. My daughter wants to stay at this same location the next time we go on vacation. My boys also loved the property.Owner is very helpful and knowledgeable of the area." - Diane from Canada, stayed in November 2014 (lower unit)
Fabulous property and location
"What a wonderful find. The property is really beautifully furnished, light and spacious. There is everything you need including wi fi, towels, robes, washer/drier and very well stocked kitchen. When the children rushed in to 'bagsy' rooms they couldn't make up their minds as they were all so lovely! Parking is no problem as there is a driveway. The location was surprisingly peaceful and an attractive neighbourhood which we felt 100% safe in, even at night. Even hummingbirds flying around! Having said that it is also extremely central. It was a leisurely 10 minutes walk to The Grove and Farmers' Market, Miracle Mile (with La Brae Tar Pits, museums and art galleries) were about the same distance. There is a Trader Joe (very friendly staff) and Ralphs 5 minutes walk away for groceries. Sharlotte kept in touch from booking through to departure and is friendly and efficient - extremely reliable (thank you for a lovely holiday). We will definitely be returning." - Sarah from the UK, stayed in October 2014 (lower unit)
Beautiful, comfortable and spacious!
"We stayed in this property for my sister's wedding week and it was fantastic for 6 adults and a toddler. The apartment is beautifully appointed with everything you need for your stay. It was clean and just as is pictured. The rooms are large with high ceilings and there is plenty of space to spread out. The apartment is a short walk to Beverly which has shops and restaurants, and also very close to a Ralphs grocery store and The Grove. Fantastic location and Sharlotte was very hospitable and helpful! Highly recommended!" - Jenni from Massachusetts, stayed in October 2014 (upper unit)
Perfect location for visiting Hollywood
"Really enjoyed our stay. The place is a lot bigger than we realised so there's plenty of space for everyone. The Grove is a 10 minute walk away with plenty to do, I would recommend the farmers market for trying out all sorts of different foods. Uber is great round here too so it's easy to get around and see the sights especially if you don't want to use a car. We all loved it!" - Richard from the UK, stayed in October 2014 (lower unit)
Beautifully neat and well located house
"We stayed here with a family of 8 people, comprised of 6 adults and 2
kids, and we had a magnificent time here. House had everything we
needed, things where easy to use, it was perfectly clean and the owner
pays attention to a lot of details that make staying in this house a
very pleasurable experience. House is very spacious and although we
where a large group of people it never felt crowded. The neighbourhood is
beautiful and it has everything one could need. Overall this was a great
experience and i would totally recommend this house." - Alvaro from Uraguay, stayed in September 2014 (lower unit)
Would Highly Recommend...Beautiful Home!!!!
”We stayed in the upper level rental and were really impressed. We are very picky we travel often and this place exceeded our expectations. Everything is updated, new and clean, kitchen had everything you needed, safe neighborhood and street and close to everything. It was much bigger then it looks in the pictures, nice bedding and pillows, tv's in all the bedrooms, better than any hotel!! We are from N.Y. first time In California and I'm glad we picked this rental-" - Lorraine from New York, Stayed in August 2014 (upper unit)
Really nice comfortable place!!!!!
"We arrived to find a perfect 3 bedroom home. We were very pleased at how each room was large, comfortable, clean, and exceeded our expectation in every way. The kitchen, dining area, and living room were also perfect. We were a large group and each person in our family was happy with this home. Sharlotte went out of her way to get us settled in perfectly. There were guide books provided, and internet access. We will definitely stay here again the next time we go to LA ,Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!" - Aviva from Chicago, stayed in August 2014 (lower unit)
"Excellent rental - great location and within minutes from so many things - spacious and well kept - perfect for travel with a family - Sharlotte was amazing to work with, extremely helpful and answered all of my questions both before and during our stay - our security deposit was returned before our plane even made it home - Thank you Sharlotte for everything!" - Ana from Illinois, Stayed in August 2014 (upper unit)
Super clean, great location
"We stayed in this apartment in late July. The first thing we noticed was how clean the place was,it was spotless. Everything that we needed was supplied . The apartment was located in a nice area and there were several shops located a very short walk away. We would definitely recommend staying here" - Mark from the UK, stayed in July 2014 (lower unit)
Great place in LA
"Right from the start dealing with Sharlotte was a breeze. She returned my call the day I emailed to answer all my questions. Once in LA the home was exactly as showing on the website and more. My entire family was thrilled with the home and everything that it offered. Travelling with two teenage girls can be a challenge at times but they loved their room. The Netflix & wireless access kept them happy during down times. The home was spotless upon arrival and well maintained. Sharlotte messaged us to let us know of traffic issues nearby due to the Presidential visit and to see if we needed anything. The area is close to all that you need, a variety of grocery stores, coffee shop, shopping mall & restaurants. The Fig & Olive restaurant was a beautiful meal, offered valet parking and was just minutes from the home. We will happily rent from Sharlotte again and refer this home to others. The entire process was quick and easy and made for a very enjoyable vacation" - Deanna from Canada, stayed in July 2014 (lower unit)
You Will Love It!
"We stayed here for 4 nights last week. We loved the place! I had
searched a million listings on VRBO, and read every review to find this
one. I picked this from the beautiful pictures, location, and the fact
that it was reasonably priced compared to others. I am a picky traveler
and had many questions for Sharlotte - all of them she answered
promptly and well. I got clear and great instructions from her about
the unit. Then we got there and completely wow'd the minute we opened
the door. The place is modern and very clean. It is just as described
on website. We had 3 adults and 3 kids and all were comfortable. All
the beds were comfortable. The NEST thermostat was super cool. The
kitchen was clean and all we needed. Loved the laundry area - much
appreciated when traveling with kids. Water pressure in bathrooms were
good. The kids LOVED all the fluffy area rugs. I appreciated all the
little details - bathrobes and laundry baskets. And I have to emphasize
again, everything was so cleaned and seemed new. I also appreciated
that the place was completely scent-less. We walked to the Grove
everyday, it took 15 min. There is a Whole Foods across from the Grove
where we got groceries and made meals at home. There is also a closer
Ralph's and Trader Joes the other direction from the house. We went to a
lot of the touristy places - Walk of Stars, UCLA, Rodeo Drive, Santa
Monica ... and it took 30-40 min. Traffic in LA is always bad so you
have take that into account. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to
come back. I would definitely recommend this to everybody. It really is
worth every penny. Such a great rental! Loved it!" - Julie from Northern California, Stayed in July 2014 (upper unit)
"We had wonderful stay, spent 13 nights but would be happy to make it longer. Very clean, perfectly equipped, safe to walk and explore many attractive local places, convenient location to all LA areas. Owner very friendly and helpful. Small tip to those concerned about parking issue mentioned in previous reviews: no problem if you back up through driveway. Highly recommended!" - Chris from Poland, Stayed in July 2014 (upper unit)
"Our family of 2 adults + 2 small kids + a baby found this place
perfect. The house is clean, there's plenty of space and it's
uncluttered yet cosy. The layout is great with the main bedroom at the
front adjoining the kitchen and living area while the kids can rest
quietly in the other 2 bedrooms at the rear. Even though I'd normally
shudder at the idea in my own place, the channel-laden TVs in all the
bedrooms kept the kids entertained in the morning while we slept in. All
the beds and linen were very comfortable. The location is also
fantastic. Even though LA generally requires a car we did occasionally
leave it behind at this address and wander to some interesting spots on
foot. We were very happy with choosing this place; the
descriptions are accurate and the owner was responsive in every way.
It's excellent value for money and we highly recommend it." - Kresho from Australia, stayed in July 2014 (lower unit)
Spacious, Open and close to The Grove
"Three adults and two children stayed at
this residents. We found this rental to be clean, well maintained and
situated within a great neighbourhood that we felt safe in. We found
dealing with Sharlotte was easy and the customer service she provided
was great, thanks again for organising ESPN, so that we were able to
watch the 2014 World Cup. The house was within walking distance to The
Grove, grocery stores (Trader Joes) and close to public transport.
While in LA, we did Hollywood Boulevard, Santa Monica, Rodeo Drive,
Universal Studios, The Grove and Farmers Market just to name a few. I
would recommend staying in this spacious home" - Angelo from Australia, stayed in June 2014 (upper unit)
The property is in excellent shape!
"We had a great time at LA, this apartament is very nice, well
located, well-maintained, very clean. Sharlotte does a great job
welcoming her guests." - Carmen from Columbia, stayed in May 2014 (upper unit)
Great Place to Stay
"Lovely home in a great, well maintained neighborhood. Everything
was clean and well organized. The beds were comfortable, and the main
bathroom had a large shower and bathtub (we did not use), double sinks
and plenty of fluffy towels. The kitchen had enough of everything and
the refrig. has auto ice maker. We appreciated a washer and dryer.
The listing was accurate and I would recommend this home to my friends.
Our only hesitation, not the fault of the owner, is that although the
property was only about 7 miles from where our son was graduating
from college, just be aware that you have to drive surface streets to
get to the freeway, and both streets and freeway are often crowded M-F
so you have to plan at least 30 plus minutes to get to USC. Otherwise,
there are lots of stores, great little restaurants, near museums etc.
Very centrally located to sites in LA. I would stay again..." - Michelle from Oregon, stayed in May 2014 (lower unit)
"Enjoyed our stay. We were a total of 6 ... an all girls stay and it
worked out "GREAT".. Rooms were huge and comfortable beds. We hope to
be back next year for another all GIRLS stay... also the surrounding
area was the best. Great eateries and shopping....." - Jeanny from Florida, stayed in March 2014 (lower unit)
Great top floor apartment - great area!
"Before deciding where to stay for our week long stay in Los
Angeles, I read quite a few of the reviews for different properties on
Homeaway. I was very impressed by the reviews for Sharlotte's
properties, and for this reason, booked the top floor apartment. We
made a great decision! The unit is located in a very central area. It
was easy to get to from LAX. The listing description is totally
accurate. The unit was very clean (spotless) and well maintained. Our 3
teenage daughters were thrilled with the fact that we had a tv in each
bedroom and living room that had Netflix. The washer and dryer are a
great feature as well. We were within walking distance to The Grove,
which we frequented often! The little shop MILK down the street had
fabulous milkshakes. We walked there in the evening, and felt safe.
It was great to pick up any groceries that we needed at Ralph's and
Trader Joe's, both very close to the apartment. The parking spot is a
little tricky, but after the first day we got used to it. It would
have been nice to sit out on lawn chairs in the sun, but there really
isn't any space (unfortunately). Sharlotte was very quick to answer any
e-mails, and she even provided beach towels for us to use during our
stay when we found out the weather would be perfect to head to the
beach. Our deposit was returned the day we left, and Sharlotte was
kind enough to return a jacket that I left back to me by mail the next
day. We would definitely recommend this property - I am sure it will be
hard to find a time to book it once word gets out about it!!" - Laurie from Canada, stayed in March 2014 (upper unit)
Comfortable, Clean, Perfect 4 Our 6, Walkable
"Just promise that if I tell you how perfect these accommodations
suited our needs, that you won't make it impossible to book it again!
We were two couples and two singles with the intent of doing a
culturally intense and delicious holiday in LA. These were the perfect
accommodations for us. We walked almost everywhere - which was good
because we ate almost everywhere! There is no doubt that we will be
back. Leo and company." - Leo from Arizona, stayed in February 2014 (upper unit)
"My husband and I made an emergency trip to West Hollywood. Luckily,
we read the reviews and contacted Sharlotte who responded to our
request quickly. The other reviewers were correct; the apartment was
immaculate and well supplied. We were so close to restaurants, shops,
etc. and loved the fact that Trader Joe's and Ralph's were around the
corner from us. Our deposit was returned quickly and Sharlotte sent a
jacket that my husband left priority mail. We couldn't be more pleased
with our choice and would stay again at this property." - Ellen from Arizona, stayed in February 2014 (upper unit)
Perfect Place to stay while in LA!
"I stayed with 5 friends at Sharlotte's place for two weeks and it was absolutely perfect! The apartment as well as the host!! The apartment was exactly as it's shown in the pictures, spacious, well kept, amenities description accurate and the place, bed linen and towels very clean. The vicinity of the apartment was also exactly like it's described, in walking distance from the Grove and close to downtown LA as well as the beach. We had a little wifi incident while there but Sharlotte responded to our problem right away and took care of it in no time. I'd recommend this place to all my relatives and friends for sure! And since there's still a lot of LA and area i'd like to see i'll certainly be back! Michèle" - Michele from Belgium, stayed in February 2014 (lower unit)
Excellent, immaculate, exactly as advertised!
"Apartment has the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in ! Loved the white ,fluffy robes available in all three bedrooms. Apartment had all the amenities of home, a true home away from home!" - Margie from New York, stayed in February 2014 (lower unit)
AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!!
"Apartment was just beautiful, super clean, modern furnishings, amazing location next to the awesome groves shoppes and the block itself was just fab! Did I mention how amazing and helpful Sharlotte was with the booking, during our stay and after. "One of a kind hands down" I can go on and on how amazing our stay was at this beautiful apartment, my kids did not want to go home... Can't wait to return soon!! Best advice is to keep this place a secret shhh so u can have it for yourself when u plan to come to LA;) Also wanted to share with u that this apt had so many things that made this stay feel like home. Yummy bathrobes and towels and linen oh and the most dreamy carpets u can just lay on all day! Washer n drier , high chair for my lil prince , great shower..much closet space, loved sitting on porch Saturday morning with the sun shining reading my novel with my fresh cut fruit salad from Ralph's ...ahhhh!!! Bye for now.......see u very soon shortly!!!" - Tracy from New York, stayed in January 2014 (upper unit)
Beautiful rental, great location, amazing owner!
We have just returned to freezing NY from our visit to LA. This rental apt was absolutely magnificent in all ways, as were all the communication and interactions with Sharlotte, the owner. It is spacious, clean and fully equipped with everything you need and more. Newly renovated, it is modern and comfortable but with the charm of the original building still intact. Sharlotte was friendly and responsive straight from our first email inquiry and available all through our stay to help with any questions, either about the apartment or about things to do in LA.. The location is fabulous, we all loved being so close to the Grove and spend a leisurely morning there after we checked out, as well as nighttime movies! Also local are tons of supermarkets and restaurants, including accessible kosher food and bagel shops down the block! We cant wait to come back to LA and stay here again! Parking our minivan in the designated spot took some careful maneuvering around each time since you really need to be mindful not to block the driveway , but if youre on vacation you should have time enough to get it right!" - Marie from New York, stayed in January 2014 (upper unit)
Lovely Home in a Great Location!
"We had a wonderful stay here. We fit 3 couples and 1 baby very easily in the apt. The furnishings are really cute and have a hip La-vibe to them. The rooms are huge, beds were comfy, place was clean, had everything we needed. We rented the extra parking space but street parking was actually pretty easy to find on the weekend. We walked to The Grove several times and ate at the Farmer's Market - a good activity when you have a bigger group of people and don't want to wait at a restaurant for a table.

Super clean, perfect location, safe neighborhood
"Perfect location, close to everything you would need or want to see. Very clean home on quiet street with great parking. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my family and friends." - Nancee from Sacramento, stayed in December 2013 (lower unit)
Beautiful centrally located apartment. LOVE!
"We come to LA often for work and prefer to stay in a house/apartment over a hotel. Out of all the places we have stayed this is our favorite. Newly remodeled, clean, bright, lots of space, excellent central location. A parking spot, and an extra if needed for an extra fee. Walking distance to restaurants, groceries and The Grove. We love it! Sharlotte is very good at communicating back and forth and, well, it's just a great spot. With that said, I'd rather it just be kept a big secret so it's always available for us! " - Katana from Portland, stayed in December 2013 (upper unit)
Excellent location and the house is huge
"The house has huge rooms, its in an excellent location, no traffic noise. The beds were really good in all the rooms. Sharlotte is an excellent host, she replied to all our email really fast and gave us good tips too. If I was to go back to LA, I would definitely stay at her place again." - Sumesh from New York, stayed in December 2013 (lower unit)
Convenient, Comfortable, Walkable
"Three generations of my family enjoyed a comfortable stay at Sharlotte's 3BR apartment in central Los Angeles. We could easily walk to shopping, cafes, and a park, or drive to dinner dates and attractions.The unit is well-stocked with new bathroom and kitchen essentials, and the apartment is very clean and pleasantly renovated. Note that there are some residential parking restrictions on this street, so we are glad we rented her parking spots too. This rental was a good fit for both the city-dwellers and suburban-dwellers in our group" - Esther from Chicago, stayed in November 2013 (upper unit)
Centrally located. Modern condo. Great for families
"Only 5 mins walk to department stores and wholefoods. Very modern and Clean, Sharlotte has ticked all the right boxes. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the rooms were very spacious. The neighborhood was lovely, very quiet and we felt safe at all time. We will definitely be back!!" - Jasmine from Australia, stayed in November 2013 (lower unit)
Very comfortable and spacious home
"My family stayed for 6 days. Plenty of soft white towels, very, very comfy beds and in a lovely street. The Farmers Market is within easy walking distance and shops for essentials are nearby. Highly recommended." - Catherine from Scotland, stayed in November 2013 (lower unit)
Quality home, great place for Hollywood and other attractions
"A modern, comfortable and clean apartment in an ideal location to see the sights and attractions that la has to offer. Sharlotte dealt with our stay brilliantly from the first enquiry to the time we left...and to be met by the owner as we arrived was proof of her commitment to make sure we had everything we needed. The apartment is in an attractive road just a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of the Farmers Market and the shopping area The Grove...great for an evening drink or meal at a number of eateries. We'd certainly stay there again! It was great to return to each night; we felt safe, comfortable, and able to relax after some busy days in Hollywood and surrounds...thanks for the use of your home Sharlotte, we were impressed!" - Pete & Jenny from Great Britian, stayed in August 2013 (lower unit)
"This house was perfect- spacious rooms, simple yet lovely furnishings, in a great neighborhood. Amenities we loved: room fans, ability to make each room dark, big closets, roku. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat!" - Rachel from San Francisco, stayed in August 2013 (lower unit)
Comfortable and great location
"I wish we could have stayed longer than 3 nights at this beautiful and comfortable condo. I loved the location...I highly recommend the donut shop across the street on 3rd. Best eclairs ever! The bagel shop at the corner of Poinsettia and Beverly had delicious bagels, plus it was kosher! So was the coffee shop on 3rd. It is a very short drive to Hollywood and Universal. Very centrally located to everything. Maybe a half hour from the airport. My son commented that he would like to move in and stay! This is the perfect rental for a family. Nice and quiet. We loved our stay. Thanks for everything, Sharlotte! - Lynne from New Jersey, stayed in August 2013 (lower unit)
Clean place and excellent location
"Excellent place to live in L.A. Near to everything "coffee,shops, restaurants, mall, and many tourism attractions". The house is clean and has everything movies, laundry ..The owner is very helpful and respectful .. I will rent it again when I come back" - Khalid from Saudi Arabia, stayed in June 2013 (lower unit)
Great location and comfortable home
"Overall the property is very well managed. Sharlotte is a great host. The amenities of the home are great for kids and family. 4 TVs, wifi, Netflix, etc. place was very clean and well maintained. Location is centralized to many tourist attractions and you get your own parking lot. Beds are comfortable to sleep in. My family had a great time and the kids had tons of fun. Thanks Sharlotte for letting us stay at your place in so short notice." - Henry from Arizona, stayed in June 2013 (lower unit)
Outstanding and Highly Recommend!
"I don't know if I can adequately express how wonderful this property is, and how welcome we felt there! We dropped in for a quick Memorial Day weekend visit to the LA area, with 2 adults and our 4 tween/teen girls, and Sharlotte was the most gracious, welcoming host we could have imagined. The house is *immaculate* and very well appointed - the proof being that the girls all wanted to move in and stay! The beds were some of the most comfortable we have ever slept on, the WiFi and TVs reliable (and essential with teens!), and the hostess reachable and responsive. From a "touristy" standpoint, this property is nicely convenient to all the places we wanted to visit - The Grove/Farmers Market, Santa Monica pier, Malibu, UCLA, Universal Studios, Hollywood Blvd, etc. It's an easy drive from LAX, and in a beautiful historic neighborhood where we could easily walk to the local coffee shop and shopping district. The off-street parking was icing on the cake. We are new to HomeAway/VRBO, but we will definitely be repeats, as this experience exceeded our expectations! Thanks, Sharlotte, for helping to make our weekend away so comfortable and memorable! Our recommendations for activities in the area: walk to the Farmers Market/Grove for strolling/shopping with the locals (and burgers at Umami), rent bikes from Sea Mist Rentals at Santa Monica Pier, save room for breakfast at The Griddle Cafe on Sunset Blvd, drive up the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu Seafood, and take a break from Starbucks in favor of the many Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf locations in the area" - Barbara from Virginia, stayed in May 2013 (lower unit)
Quiet and near The Grove!
"Very nice house and quiet. Near the groves. Parents liked it so much. Going to rent again if needed!" - Yaolin from China, Stayed in May 2013 (lower unit)
