We enjoyed this home very much. We had a few specific needs, namely several bedrooms, lots of bathrooms, a neighborhood setting and close proximity to tourist attractions and restaurants. After careful research and the help of the property manager, it was a near home run.
You will find this home, not only large, but in a beautiful neighborhood with views in 3 directions, including a spectacular skyline of downtown Los Angeles, from the living room and master bedroom. There's a large patio, with fireplace, that captures that same view with privacy from a mature oak tree and several palms.
All in all it was a great experience and plan on renting there next year.

What a great house in a very old school Hollywood style neighborhood.
I'm a big movie buff and was very surprised that one of the most filmed houses in the world is a neighbor. You can't help but miss the Frank Lloyd Wright, Ennis House towering above. It's resume is huge, including Blade Runner, I digress, that was just a bonus.
The rental is great; huge, warm and surpringly quiet, day and night. It made for a great vacation for my family. I recommend it highly. Make sure you tour around the estates sprinkled nearby!
"Beautiful property in an wonderful neighborhood. Really enjoyed it all"

I treated my family and my wife' parents to a week in Los Angels and we chose this home because it had plenty of space for all of us. The home was terrific and right in the middle of Griffith Park. The neighborhood was very pretty and we were close to all of the sights we wanted to see. The home has a very cozy feel to it and the outside veranda and fireplace has incredible views to the downtown skyline. We appreciated all the help from the Luxpads management company rep Andrew who took care of us and were very happy with our visit. We will be back again next Thanksgiving. Thank you !!!

We always try to visit California in the fall and decided to use a rental home this time, instead of a hotel. It turned out to be a wise choice.
When we chose Los Angeles, instead of San Diego this trip we went to work to find a large, clean and unique area to stay in. This house is near the glitter of Hollywood, yet very serene.
The experience was great, start to finish. We were greeted upon arrival with a smile and a thorough tour. The house is big and gave us privacy, in style. Nothing more to say other than thank you for a nice experience.

We were not very familiar with Hollywood and the LA area, but choose this house because it looked fantastic and was very centrally located. We made the right choice!
The neighborhood is very quaint, quiet and is comprised of many very beautiful homes of all sizes. This is clearly one of the larger homes in the area and very nicely decorated. It was nice to have 3 levels of living space, a heated pool and a very large kitchen to cook for our large group.
We had a great experience in a great area and enjoyed working with the rental company who was prompt in all regards.

Terrible, I would not use LuxPads ever again. Our party consisted of two families with young children. The swimming pool heater did not work for the whole week we rented the property.We had a repair man onsite most days. We were offered a refund and have still not received it over 6 weeks later. I have sent multiple emails with no reply from the rental company and have been totally ignored - Terrible customer service.

My three daughters and wife and I stayed here last month. I can tell you, none of them wanted to return home after being here for two weeks. For starters, it's a gigantic, plenty of room and then some. The girls all had our own bathroom, which they were especially excited about. It was clean and orderly when we arrived with the pool well-maintained. When you step out on the patios--and there are many--you're nestled right in the canyons and trees. The fantastic thing is, if you want to go out for a bite, there are lots of places just a stone's throw away. I particularly liked an authentic French bistro nearby...All in all, great location, great property, doesn't get any better.

The service here is excellent. It was a lovely place to stay to completely get away from the norm. It's very elegant and suave, definitely a way to make yourself feel rich for a night. It's like being in a dream! You definitely won't regret coming.

We stayed here for a 2-week break with family, including teenage children. We were more than impressed with the villa's size, furnishings and facilities. It was a very refreshing break in a totally luxurious environment. We will definitely be back!

Had the best trip and this place is everything all the other reviewers are saying. Piano! And yes the privacy was second to none. Proximity to the things you wanna make sure you do in Los angeles if you're not from there is great. Got a group together and split the cost, very reasonable. Super clean and the feel is as exclusive as it gets. Highly recommend and especially in spring when its not too hot yet. Fantastic place with so much space you'll be trying to find each other after choosing rooms.

This area in the east part of Hollywood is home to the big grand mansions from the 20's and 30's and just drips of nostalgia. I would say hands down this is the best area of Hollywood and this home is not only well situated and classic, but updated for great comfort.
The house is pretty large and has a great view of downtown and walking distance into Griffith Park and the Greek Theater. We split the house with some other couples and had great privacy, as the 2 living areas have a level in between. The lower level is a cool hang out spot, as well as the living room and massive kitchen on the center floor. Each room has it's own bath and there was even a piano for our musical friend to entertain us.
The house was certainly a great wind down spot from our hectic days and nights around la.

We had a great stay in this fabulous home!
This is the true California spanish home experience. It's very comfortable with multiple spots to relax, inside and out. The family and living room are huge, as is the kitchen. We had people over and the place certainly impressed! The view is amazing of downtown and really looks spectacular at night. We found it to be clean and furnished thoroughly. The pool is great, as is the location, minutes to Hollywood and downtown and adjacent to Griffith Park with hiking, the Greek Theatre and the observatory. On our next visit to la this is top of the list!

Love the location of this place. For our needs it was the most centrally located large, historic style home we could find. We found out the previous owner coined the term sci-fi and the house used to house cool old props from the grand days of Hollywood. The new owner modernized it just right. The kitchens, baths etc. all work great and have top of the line finish, yet we were in a cool old Hollywood Spanish style home. As far as conveniences go, it has them all; bbq, pool, patios deluxe, big kitchen an hang out areas. And the view!!! It's up in the hills high enough to get a great view of the city including a beautiful night view of downtown. It's quiet, nicely located and a great chill out home. Read more
