“nothing to write home about”
if you just want to use it for sleeping in then you are good. It is not the cleanest unit (I don't know why they charge $69 cleaning fee if they can't provide a spotless hotel like place) and the bathroom is very very small. If you want to just use it to sleep in for the night and want a decent neighborhood, then it is OK. Best part of the whole deal is the refreshing garden in the backyard and the owner Yvonne is a nice friendly person.
Response from the owner Odd you wrote this since when I spoke to you you told me you would definitely like to return. I am truly puzzled.
“A Garden hideaway, mere blocks from the best of Hollywood”
Yvonne's place is a magical home to land in. The back garden, lush with tropical trees and an Indonesian gazebo, is a wonderful place for morning tea or quiet nights under the moon. Glass paned doors open to a small but very serviceable kitchen. A living room with a big picture window open to the back garden, is flooded with light and feels so airy and comfortable that we often felt like staying put rather venturing into the city. When we did go out, it was very easy to get around as Sunset and Hollywood Blvd are only about three blocks down the hill. The immediate neighborhood is also charming and makes for a nice evening stroll. We were happy each day of our trip to have this place to come back too — sooo much better than a typical hotel room!
Response from the owner So glad you enjoyed your stay. Enjoyed having you.
“Very cool apt in The Hollywood Hills”
It's great when you can find a unique place to stay, and this is certainly one of a kind. Well decorated, stunning garden (I thought I was in Bali!) and friendly helpful host. Full kitchen and comfortable bed, I could have stayed much longer. It's close to everything but it's an oasis of calm in the city. So nice to return to after a day of sightseeing. We would definitely stay here again
Response from the owner You were an ideal guest. Loved having you.
“Comfortable Stay in Hollywood”
The location of the apartment is excellent, in a quiet neighbourhood walking distance to central Hollywood. It's comfortable, beautifully decorated, and has a full kitchen. Miss Yvonne is very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this apartment to anyone, it's definitely better than a hotel!
Response from the owner Thank you so much both for your review and for the lovely box of pear chocolate you brought to be all the way from Japan. Very gracious guests!!!
“A Wonderful Hidden Gem in a Beautiful la Oasis~*”
We so enjoyed our stay here at the base of the Hollywood Hills that we didn't want to leave! The size and its many extras were ideal for our stay. Highlights: Lovely neighborhood of prime real estate (read: a picturesque & safe enclave of beautiful homes). Super-convenient location. Close to Hollywood hotspots, restaurants, venues, parks, & the freeway. Wonderfully lush & very private yard with amazing landscaping. Well-designed decor with fireplace and incredible antiques from around the world, plus nice linens & tableware. Our host Yvonne was fascinating, gracious, & delightful to spend time with. She had many terrific suggestions & fun trivia on the Hollywood Dell neighborhood. We had a great time with her and her guests at her fabulous home. Her tenant Michael was also terrific, kindly offering to help me up the stairs after I sprained my foot. We'd highly recommend this rental, and would gladly stay there again! It's very casual, eclectic, & somewhat rustic, yet imperfect in a refreshing departure from cookie cutter accommodations. (I might change out the vintage bathroom tile sometime, but then again, I'm married to a flooring rep). All in all, it was most comfortable & met our needs quite well. We were so glad to have had the opportunity to rent this special gem!~*
Response from the owner Glad you enjoyed your stay. Lots of fun having you.
“Fabulous accommodation, great location”
The photos in the ad definitely piqued our interest in staying at Yvonne's place...but after staying there, I must say they don't entirely communicate how beautifully furnished and tasteful the accommodation is. We actually got some ideas for furnishing our own home from staying there. And the photos don't provide much context for the beautiful gardens and outdoor environs. The place was extremely comfortable, and quiet. Parking was easy. And the neighborhood is terrific: a cocoon of quiet, even though it is very close to the hustle and bustle of Hollywood. It's really near Hollywood Reservoir and Griffith Park, and some amazing houses in the Hollywood Hills. Great location, great hostess.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your nice review. I hope you stay again and I can get to know you better.
“A magical little gem in the Hollywood Hills!”
My stay at the "Hollywood Tropical Paradise" was perfect. The place was charming, warm, comfy and truly "magical". The grounds truly are a tropical paradise - and yet it is centrally located in the Hollywood Hills just minutes away from the clubs and center of Hollywood. The best of all worlds. I highly reccomend this for anyone looking for something far more special and magical than any hotel! Patti N
Response from the owner So glad you enjoyed your stay here. You were a lot of fun. Loved walking around these hills with you. Hope you can stay again.
We loved staying at the Hollywood Hills Tropical Paradise. If you're looking for a sterile, expensive hotel then don't stay here. If you want to get a feel for the area, be able to park easily, and have a quiet place to rest your head then this is the place. The furnishings and textiles were incredible. It is an older house, full of charm. The gardens were lovely. We enjoyed an organic grape tomato on arrival. Yvonne couldn't have been any nicer, she even lent me jewelry for a black tie event. We enjoyed breakfast at the Best Western 101 coffee shop. We will stay here again as we felt most welcome!
Response from the owner Really loved having you here !!! You were a most memorable guest. And that was among many really nice & fun guests we have had. Felt like you were an old friend(long-time, that is--not aged;-) right away. Was sorry to see you go. Hope you can return.
What a great place to stay. I often come to Los angeles on business and this is the most comfortable place I have stayed yet.The apartment was very cozy. The atmosphere was relaxed--a great place to retreat to after a hectic day doing business. The bed was comfy and the outdoor area a great place to have breakfast and hang out. Everyone was very friendly but never intrusive. I felt like I was on vacation. However, I'm really reluctant to recommend it because I'm hoping it will be free on my next business trip.
Response from the owner Glad you enjoyed your stay. I certainly enjoyed having you.
“Everything I needed”
Everything that I needed-- comfortable, unique, and removed from the la craziness. The tropical garden was so gorgeous--I spent a lot of time outside during the day but I was cozy inside and slept like a log in the big comfortable bed at night. The location is great because I could get lost on walks around the peaceful neighborhood which is filled with incredible vegetation, or I could easily get down to Cahuenga if I needed anything from a store. Yvonne was also very cool, and gave me great tips about the area. This place is special I felt very at home here, I was 100% barefoot and longing to move to la after being here a few days. I hope to return again!
Response from the owner So happy you enjoyed yourself so much. Hope you return soon. I really enjoyed having you and getting to know you.
