We stayed here with 6 adults and had plenty of room. My adult children stayed in the loft room and both being around 185cm tall struggled to stand up! Haha But apart from that we were all comfortable. The stairs to to the loft are very steep so if I had small children I wouldn’t be happy with them sleeping up there. We had an issue with blocked plumbing but contacted Stephanie who dealt with it promptly. The location is great and close to most attractions and it was lovely to have a ‘home’ to come home to after a long day out exploring. Everything we needed to be able to cook for ourselves and plenty of toiletries to start you off. Plus free WiFi! The house is on a main road so can be a bit tricky to get in and out of with the car but with someone guiding you out we soon had it sorted. Loved our time in our ‘home away from home’ and would highly recommend!
Nice place plenty of room. Located conveniently to freeway access and the glitz of Hollywood. However, located on a busy street that has you fighting traffic and traffic noise. Also would note the steep stairs to the upper floor are a bit nerving. Overall a good value as opposed to hotels in the area.
The location of this comfortable family home was excellent. For a family of 6, with 4 teenagers, this home was perfect for us all. Everything we needed for our short stay in LA. Thank you!
How satisfying when a vacation home rental matches the photos and comments from other reviews. In fact the hosts even spruced up the place. Location as others noted is great! Took a walk every morning for a latte at the neighborhood grocery which also included a coffee shop, bakery and ready to eat dishes made on site. We saw a couple celebrities there as well. The Franklin Village area is as noted in the heart of Hollywood. Couple of restaurants and entertainment venues (comedy/ theatre) are in the block. We had a mini-van which fit comfortably within the gated drive. No room for a 2nd car. Someone did have to stay out to confirm foot traffic whenever we came out onto the street. As noted, the driveway gate is on the busy side of Franklin Blvd. Visitors where always able to find free parking on the street. They have info on the fridge regarding the street parking permitted hours. Not an inconvenience.
All in all a *great* vacation spot for families. The only negative was lack of central air conditioning but they had fans and a portable air conditioning unit for cooling. The attic with the twin beds was hot when we first arrived but we turned on the attic fan which pulled out the hot air and then turned on the air conditioner in that area. It cooled off quickly and then we had to drag the teenagers from that hangout every time we wanted to go out...they absolutely loved that area and the roof top outside patio.
Definitely would rent again if in the area.
BTW...never actually saw the host or caretakers but felt taken care of with the notes and other items left in the home by them.
Perfect place, perfect location, perfect people to deal with!! If we ever go back to LA we know where we are staying!! Thanks Stephanie, Thanks Robert...y'all are great!!

The house was in a great location and had plenty of space for the 10 of us. The upstairs loft definitely not suitable for small children or elderly but great for 15-40 year olds. The house sits on a busy street but didn't cause any problems and parking was easy to figure out with the street sighs. There is a grocery store within walking distance and several other stores/cafes within walking distance. The owner had spare supplies just in case you forgot something and was great that it had a washer and dryer so that we could keep towels washed and dried. The only problem at all was the tv in the master....we couldn't figure out how to work it and the property manager didn't really know how to work it either. We had plenty of other things to keep us busy so it wasn't an issue. There was always plenty of water for showers and the check in and out was easy.
