The space

Built in the 1920's for silent film actors, this historic and serene flat is nestled along one of Los Angeles's secret stairways in a quiet hillside neighborhood.  To stay here is to experience a compelling taste of Hollywood history.

The apartment is the entire first floor of a two-story duplex, and is evocative of a large suite, with unique original details and a clean layout.  It has roughly 650 sq ft of interior space, and also boasts a spacious back patio for al fresco dining, and a front porch overlooking the secret stairs where you can sip your morning coffee and lookout over the treetops and surrounding greenery.   The quaint kitchen is perfect for light cooking.  In the rear is an office area with a desk, printer and scanner for those requiring professional amenities, and includes wifi.   The new flatscreen TV has HBO GO, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube, Ted Talks and Spotify, to name a few. Plenty of drawer and closet space, and good books. The unit includes a free parking space in a gated parking lot, with easy access to the 101 Freeway and LA Metro system (both buses and subways).

Sara was great at communicating with us beforehand, and the information she left us not only on the house, but the surrounding area was stellar! The place itself was clean and tidy, and in a perfect location for access to LA and the beach cities.

The place is cute, nestled in vines, the bed and sofa area comfortable, and we didn't mind the stairs although with bags it's a bit of a trek. Sara's friend Carrie handled the stay, and was very friendly and helpful. The apt is old which is part of its charm, but be warned it isn…

Very sorry to hear about the floor Dan, I was there the day you arrived to check on the maid's work and did not notice them being dirty (though I wasn't barefoot!) We will definitely have them deep cleaned, appreciate the feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay! Carrie and Sara x

The apartment is really smaller than on photos but it's location gives you a opportunity to get to any place you need as fast as it possible.

I'm a creative in the entertainment industry and I am out of town often for work, or when lucky, on holiday. Love to know there are good people in my place, enjoying it while I'm off and away.
