Overview

This beautiful 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath two-story duplex vacation rental (vrbo) is located in the posh Beverly Grove neighborhood. The house features original 1936 crown molding, a handsome fireplace and gorgeous hardwood floors.

There's also a gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances (including a Sub-Zero fridge and Thermador oven/range). The living room and master bedroom include televisions with over 500 satellite TV channels as well as DVD players. There's also a shared backyard charcoal BBQ and a washer and dryer (laundry soap included).

I am entertainment-industry (touring companies, Hollywood cast and crew, etc.) friendly. The house is in a fantastic and trendy neighborhood, centrally located to easily get to all major studios and theaters. With literally dozens of great restaurants, shops and movie theaters within walking distance, it's a perfect home away from home.

The house is on a permit-only parking street and comes with TWO permits for two vehicles... bottom line, it's always easy to park right in front of the property.

Arriving on a late flight? Have to clear customs and immigration and not sure when you'll arrive at the house? No problem at all, I can easily accomodate your arrival, as late as necessary.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

The vacation rental (vrbo) features three large, bright bedrooms, each with queen-size beds and 650-thread-count linens.

Additionally, there's a very comfortable inflatable AeroBed for sleeping two more.

There are three bathrooms, two with showers (one with a bathtub) and a half-bath off the kitchen. The master bathroom and guest bathroom are very clean and fresh and stocked with fresh white towels.

Style

The house was built in 1936 and features many original touches, such as the handsome fireplace mantle, the French doors off the master bedroom, and the intricately design of the balcony railing, to name a few. Additionally, the original (but newly-refinished) hardwood floors and crown molding give the home a stateliness you won't find in a boring new building.

Every room has been designed and furnished by the up-and-coming L.A. interior design firm "this is not ikea." As they explain:

Every piece speaks to us. You will see a variety of styles, ranging from mid-century modern and retro styles to shabby chic and unique art pieces, but they all share a "this is not ikea" look. We look for pieces that are unique, interesting, classic, artistic -- pieces with personality. We look for pieces that we would put in our own homes, or the house of a close friend.

You can see that each room has its own unique style; by avoiding brand-new, personality-free generic furniture, you will be in rooms designed to not only compliment the home's original 1936 charm, but also to give the house a creative energy you won't find anywhere else.

From the original movie posters and lobby cards on display throughout the house... to the incredibly comfortable lounge chair in the "tree" bedroom... to the historically-accurate hand-laid linoleum tile kitchen floor... to the handsome Asian-inspired dark wood and straight lines of the master bedroom... each and every room is an inspiring delight for the senses.

Reviews

(This is just a small sample of my OVER 100 positive reviews!)

Just to start the house was very clean and everything was in order even though we arrived abit early to check in. Now down to what everyone wants to know how was the house really and I must say it was better than advertised to my delight. It is close to the Grove and the Berverly center and I mean walking distance. There are a ton of places to eat near by and the area is very nice. There was more than enough room for all of us to sleep and not feel cramped and it was 5 of us. We had a lot of guest come over an say how nice the place was and they should have rented a house. Overall I was very pleased with my stay and I will be booking my next stay this week for next year.

We stayed here for 3 nights for a conference in LA. Eric was VERY professional, kept in close contact, and honored all commitments. In addition, he went out of his way to make sure the house was clean, and an air mattress was blown up. A group of us stayed in the house, very comfortably, and all were very impressed with both Eric and the house. Great stay, highly recommended!!!

—Cammie, San Francisco, March 2013

The house was just perfect, or even better than we expected. I definitely recommend staying there for anyone going to LA. Also, the organization and information from Eric's side was perfect. Don't miss the breakfast (including the coffee) at Joan's on Third, which is right around the corner!

—Sofia, Sweden, February 2013

We stayed at Eric's beautiful house for 9 nights. It easily and comfortably accommodated our family of 6 - 2 teenagers and 2 small boys. The master suite was the perfect retreat for my husband and I and honestly after a few nights it felt like home. It was very clean and beautifully furnished. I didn't have a car for a few days and there were so many places in walking distance - LACMA, the Grove, the Beverly Centre and Pan Pacific Park to name only a few. Eric was an amazing host and could not have been more accommodating. He even arranged with the baby rental company to be at the house for the delivery. I highly recommend this property.

Firstly we were looking for a house to stay in rather than a Hotel, because in LA most hotels only cater for 2 people per room, this means for a family of 4 you need two rooms....in our travelling party, our family consisted of my wife and two boys ages 15 and 17. The cost of two hotel rooms becomes quite expensive, so having us all together in the one house is perfect. The first thing we noticed is how central to everything the house is. walk out your door and you have a multitude of eat options, unique little stores, farmers markets, which is great place to browse and grab an inexpensive bite... about 10 min walk is Macy's and Bloomingdales, this area of West hollywood is very cool. I had my first awesome coffee after being in the USA for 3 weeks....and the Kings Road cafe' delivered, it was just at the end of the block, about 5 min walk from the house...The Coffee was the best...(americans generally don't know what good coffee is)...sorry..:). When on holidays we like to do what the the locals do, and this house provides exactly that. Eric provides an awesome service, nothing is too much trouble, and his descriptions and helpful information on where to go is not only accurate but very perfect. thanks again Eric, when we are next in LA, we will be coming back to your house to explore more of this great area in LA....cheers

—Darren, Australia, December 2012

We had the pleasure of spending 7 nights at this fantastic house. 4 Adults and 2 kids (6,4). Eric was a pleasure to deal with from questions regarding bookings to things that we might like to do. Making the process simple and straight forward. Great location with a variety of cafe's and restaurants to cater for all. As the house was so roomy it felt like everyone had their own space to escape to. The little touches made it feel more homely and inviting. As was the fireplace. Would highly recommend this house to all wanting to stay locally and experience the LA lifestyle. Thank you Eric and will definitely stay again.

—Amanda, Brisbane, Australia, November 2012

Excellent condition, tastefully decorated, brilliant location between Beverly Hills and West Hollywood.

—Tim, London, November 2012

We had a fantastic stay and only wished it could have been longer. We really appreciated the thoughtful little touches. So pleased that we chose this house for the LA part of our vacation.

—Anne, Australia, April 2012

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was absolutely wonderful! The house is a short work to a huge number of great take-out places, restaurants the Beverley Center (shopping center and I'm sure there were more) and there's even a small corner store which supplies alcohol, cigarettes and a few groceries. As the advert states, the house is only a short drive from so many other places as well. My partner and I are from Australia and this was our first visit to LA. A hotel is fine but it's no house, we couldn't have been more comfortable than we were in this beautiful house. Highly recommended to any person seeking affordable luxury living!

—Nyquie, Victoria, Australia, April 2012

This is a charming 1930s era house with some original elements (love the original furnace vent grates) and modern comforts where necessary - like the kitchen, bedrooms, etc. Everything is spotlessly clean. The off 3rd Street location is perfect: you can walk to Toast or Joan's for breakfast, Son of a Gun (one of LA's hottest restaurants) for lunch, and Robata Jinya for dinner - then to Magnolia Bakery for cupcakes for dessert. We will definitely stay here again.

—Victoria, Berkeley, California, March 2012

We've rented homes all over the world and this is one of our favorites. This charming house is located in a great location in West Hollywood. Restaurants, shopping, sights and bars are all just around the corner from the house and only a short walk away. Don't miss Joan's on Third for any meal (we went every day) or Toast for breakfast. The house is tastefully decorated in a vintage Hollywood style. The working fireplace was a nice touch in the living room and we enjoyed it every night during our mid-winter stay. The kitchen is recently updated and very user friendly. Eric is great to work with and he goes out of his way to make you feel welcome.

—Todd, Ramsey, New Jersey, February 2012

My team and I had to be in town on business for a couple days and decided to rent from Eric vs. staying in a hotel; we had an amazing experience! The house has everything you could need. 3 large bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a spacious living room, a cozy dining room that seats 6 and a beautiful/updated kitchen (with laundry). We were able to be productive for work, having meetings in the spacious living room, and also relax with a glass of wine to wind down our days. It was great to have a home-away-from-home feeling, vs. being bunked down in a hotel. A first for my team, but we'll absolutely take this approach again. Eric was available with a couple questions I had; very quick to respond. We'll absolutely stay at Eric's place again! I very much recommend!

—Justin & Tamara Bousquet, San Diego, CA, February 2012

My family came to LA last weekend for my wedding and we rented this beautiful Home from Eric. I have to say the it was such a dream working with Eric, he was the most pleasant and helpful person I could ever imagine! This home is exactly as pictured, beautiful modern decor, clean with three perfect sized bedrooms. The living room with fireplace was perfect to come home to after spending the day visiting all the great spots that are very close by including shops, restaurants, cafes as well as the great Beverly Center Mall. I highly recommend this Home, and would always check back with Eric through this site when having family and friends visit us in the future!

—Sara, United States, January 2012

Location, Location, Location. It couldn't be located in a more convenient neighborhood. You're near the Beverly Center, Grove, Farmer's Market, Larchmont, WeHo, Ktown, Robertson, Animal, Cantor's Deli, right next to Joan's on Third, MAGNOLIA BAKERY! If you really want to, you could drive to Silverlake which is only 20min away. Yes, we only stayed 3nights, but we hit up all these places because they're all so close! If you have limited amount of time, THIS is the place to stay. Some of my friends and I had a nice lil post hangover run around the neighborhood, and there are a TON of cute little art, clothes, furniture, knick knack stores surrounding the area. I don't know if he got an interior decorator or if he did it all himself, but I felt the "WELCOME TO LA" vibe upon entering, and the entire house is very eclectic with each room having its own personality - vintage, art deco, modern, fun retro. I felt like I was on MTV's Real World with all of us running around checking out the house, trying to decide where to sleep, turning on the fireplace and sipping our cocktails. Finally, he pays attention to every detail to ensure that his guests are comfortable - parking permits, making sure TP doesn't run out, having plenty of towels including hand towels, a hair dryer, dishware, platters, and even the showerhead was like standing under a little spring!
