Exotic Hollywood Hills Studio in a Tropical Setting

This exotic apartment is a hideaway amid the action and fun of Hollywood. The lush tropical back garden is a wonderful place to read a book while enjoying a refreshment – the warm Southern California sun streaking through the tall trees. Staying here is worth a trip to Hollywood all by itself, but with the attraction of all that LA has to offer virtually blocks away, the apartment is part of a truly special house. A 1920's cottage with an old Hollywood feel, staying here is a wonderful experience.

About Yvonne

I love to travel. I have been to every continent except for Antarctica, and it's not likely I will ever go. I hate cold weather. I love the tropics, which is reflected in my garden. When I'm not traveling, I enjoy meeting other travelers, which is why I so enjoy having a vacation rental. Please check out the reviews on the other listing 418152

Yvonne purchased this studio in 1978

Why Yvonne chose Hollywood Hills

I have known this property since I was a little girl. I always felt there was some magic in it. This property attracts people with a creative sensibility. I always felt good here. Many people who have lived here in the past remember it as some of the best years of their lives. The majority of guests, many of whom either work in the arts, or have a sympathy for them, have felt that magic and tell me they hate to leave. This always makes me very happy.

What makes this studio unique

While you are here you can hardly believe you're right in the middle of the city. There is almost a semi-rural feel to it. Lots of trees. Quiet streets. And at times you would think you are in a wild-life reserve--squirrels, racoons, coyotes, deer, birds and more. Yet you are only paces away from the razzle-dazzle of Hollywood--the best of all worlds in one.

It's no wonder L.A. magazine has listed this area as one of the ten best places to live in Los Angeles.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I already miss Yvonne’s Bohemian Oasis. From the moment I stepped in I felt home. The decorating was beautiful and cozy, everything clean and in working order and the location incredibly convenient. Yvonne was also lovely. I was so happy I was able to share tea with her and lovely dog Daisy on my final evening. It’s nice to stay somewhere where the communicating is simple, you feel welcome and everything you need is there. Plus, parking was easy! I’ll definitely be back. Thank you, Yvonne!

Clean and neat room. Beautiful backyard garden. Located near many LA hotspots.

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner was inclusive and welcoming, but also allowed us to experience LA on our own terms. The room itself was neat and clean. Plenty of windows provided ample breeze that kept the room extremely cool. The property is home to a beautiful, drought friendly garden that allowed for meditation and scheming for the days activities. The property was located near walkable bars and grocery stores (the room contained a little kitchen--in case you wanted to cook a quick breakfast or lunch). It was a short drive to Los Felix and Silver Lake neighborhoods--which we frequented for elixer and vittles. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for great customer service, a clean and neat room, and a place that is perfect for anyone experiencing LA-- first-timers and seasoned veterans alike.

Very eclectic-fun property

  • 4 of 5

This is a very interesting property. The vibe is so fun and the location is great. Studio space is quite tiny, especially if you have the sofa bed pulled out. Bathroom is very tiny too. The lack of AC was a slight issue due to the weather the weekend we stayed, but if that’s not a concern to you then you will be fine. There were fans to use. There were no screens on the windows so we did have a slight bug issue (both flying and crawling). Garden was beautiful! We enjoyed having our morning coffee out there. If we were traveling in the colder months we’d definitely look to stay here again. Thanks Yvonne!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. I liked you the moment I met you. But it's always funny having people staying from the Northern climes--I remember when you arrived I (a Southern Californian) was cold while you were just fine !! For me, your apartment is always cool enough, especially as it has great cross-ventilation, but I do understand that for people who run warmer it can be a slight issue, as you put it. Anyhow, do hope to see you again.

Fun please in the Hollywood Hills

  • 5 of 5

Yvonne was very accommodating to our needs. Her place has a very fun bohemian charm and was clean and tidy. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet, yet close to the hustle and bustle of Hollywood!

Tropical garden hideaway in Hollywood

  • 5 of 5

Yvonne's place in the Hollywood hills has the feel of a Balinese cottage within walking distance of the Sunset Strip. The garden is cool and fragrant, and a brick-oven/BBQ made for a fun stay-in cook out with the family. I highly recommend a stay here.

Great place! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this gem of a place. It was very comfortable and the garden was so relaxing. The neighborhood was so peaceful yet in a few minutes we were in the hustle and bustle of downtown Hollywood.

Although hidden away in the hills, this property is right in the center of all that Hollywood has to offer. The attractions are almost too numerous to mention, many (not all) in walking distance, but here are a few:

Right on this block many houses once inhabited by movie stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Hollywood Boulevard

Hollywood Bowl

Academy Awards Theater

Mann's Chinese star's footprints

Tons of bars

Tons of restaurants

Universal Studios

West Hollywood

Sunset Strip

Los Feliz/Silverlake

The Hollywood sign

Wax Museum

Griffith Park

Oh gosh . . . lets talk about more places when you get here.
