The space

IF THIS LISTING IS UNAVAILABLE Please check my other listing in same house!

Leave the ordinary and jump into the EXTRAORDINARY! Wake up each day in the fashionable and historic Hollywood Hills in a home that pays tribute to the music fan in us all! After careful consideration, I have opened up my 1926 home exclusive to Airbnb guests only. This opportunity is more than just a room, it is an entire experience! This castle on the hill is homage to my 25+ years directing and photographing top recording artists ranging from Ozzy Osbourne, AC/DC, John Lennon, Stevie Nicks, Guns N Roses to the likes of Dr. Dre and even Willie Nelson!

I pride myself on a truly unique home that itself is an artistic representation of me! From the dark espresso wooden floors to the lighting fixtures (including a full sized gothic chandelier) every square foot of this home exudes originality and my rock and roll background. I always look forward to sharing wine and great stories with my guests and invite you to bring your camera for some one of a kind photo ops with my collections (Please no postings on social media)!

My home is also my workspace and fully functional studio which I utilize to display my extensive assortment of not only my own works and awards but several unique signed or one of kind prestigious pieces that would have to be seen to be believed. Please be advised that several works do contain erotica for those that may be traveling with younger children (I can tailor the artwork exhibited upon request).

Feel free to enjoy your surroundings and make yourself at home! Whip up a meal in the full sized kitchen or outside on the grill. Sit and enjoy your favorite show in your room with your oversized flat screen or take in a movie down in the entertainment room, the choice is always yours. I invite you to reminisce with my accumulation of hundreds of 70/80s 8 track tapes or indulge in the broad library of fine art. My home is truly yours to enjoy!

Eager to get to the action? The house is an inexpensive Uber or Lyft ride to all Hollywood or Beverly Hills hotspots, as well as walking distance to Universal Studios and numerous fantastic restaurants. Your spacious room comes complete with a full ensuite, walk in closet as well as a comfortable queen size bed and a view that always prompts endless photos. The room can accommodate a 3rd person for an additional guest fee of $35 (Roll away memory foam twin bed).

I am always available to help you get the best out of your time here and want to help you live Hollywood like a local. This is a unique property for travelers wanting to have a one of a kind vacation and if that fits your criteria, I am looking forward to meeting you!

Visiting LA from New Zealand, this was our first try at Airbnb. We had a fantastic four days and Dean is a great host, extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about the local area. On the functional side, the room was big, clean and airy with a few interesting pictures and instruments dotted around – the bed was comfortable and the amenities, shower toilet etc. whilst fairly vintage, were all good and clean. A nice touch is a walk in ‘closet where you can hang all your stuff up and stash your cases etc. Theres a ceiling fan and a fridge. You also get a great view out of the bedroom window across the valley and can actually see the towers of Hogwarts. The house is located in the Hollywood Hills, good for LA in general and close to Universal Studios and the Hollywood Bowl. We had no problem getting around we hired a car but also used Uber a fair bit in the evenings. If you’re a lover of minimalist Ikea style décor, this is not the place for you – Dean’s house is filled to the brim with the wildest most eclectic mix of rock memorabilia, photography, objects and art which cover practically every available surface – offering a very unique and interesting stay. We had a quite a few particularly fun experiences while we were there; certainly even relatively mundane tasks like nipping down to the local supermarket 'Ralphs' takes on a completely different feel when you’re sitting in an electric green 1977 Dodge Charger roaring down the street. Dean held an impromptu bbq with guests that included, a couple of producers and directors, a stuntwoman, a member of the Scorpions and Rod Stewart’s sax player – not the sort of people we would get to mingle with everyday. He also suggested we check out the Guillermo Del Toro exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art – which was another trip highlight. In conclusion, if you are a metal fan, a rock fan, an art fan or just after a genuinely different experience in LA, check out Dean’s place. We had a ball! If you are a Donald Trump supporter - you might want to look somewhere else. Love Ya Dean T&R x

Dean welcomed us as rockstar guests. We had a good time and enjoyed all of the movie/music memorabilia. We’ll stay again on our next adventure to LA!

So I decided to do something a bit a midweek Hollywood staycation at Dean's place for my hubby's 50th birthday. My husband is a rock 'n roll fanatic. I'm more the 18th c. costume drama type. Dean's place didn't disappoint for either of us. I really appreciated that Dean went out of his way to place memorabilia from my husband's favorite bands in the room and show us around despite being in the middle of a big project. (How does he work with that view?!) For me, a writer and former archaeologist, it was like being in an 18th c. "wunderkammer," wonder room, cabinet of curiosities. I found it so inspirational to see an uncommon collection of passions in real-life. Another wonder...seeing Universal City Walk as a ghost town on Wednesday at 8:00 pm and only paying $10 parking that late! We live just over the hill from Dean, but it was like visiting a different world. Thank you, Dean, for reminding us of the wonder and generosity to be found in our own home town! P.S. Take those warnings about the steps seriously. I went up and down three times in a row because I kept forgetting things in the car. Wasn't expecting such a good workout that day, lol.

From the moment we arrived my girlfriend and I felt right at home. DK's home is up in the hills about a 4 minute drive from Universal Studios. He had a T.V. (with hundreds of channels), a kick ass ceiling fan, and mini-fridge for us in the room. We were happy to see we had our own private bathroom. The view was incredible and everything about our trip was great. He even made us coffee and english muffins and gave us a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival. I honestly don't have a single complaint, Dean is the man!!

Know what you are getting yourself into before you stay. This dude is an amazing talented human being, him letting you stay there is just a benefit.

Dean is an amazing host. His house is just Rock 'n Roll. He knows all the cool spots in L.A. You will be flashed about all the details in the house. And hangin‘ around with homemade pumpkin pie, chillin‘ with music videos ... hellyeah Dean rulez !
