Beautifully restored Mediterranean style home built during the golden age of Hollywood but with all the modern amenities for today. The home is ideally situated on a quiet street in the foothills of Hollywood but within walking distance of the Hollywood Bowl and Boulevard. Minutes from Universal studios and convenient freeway access to the best of Los Angeles.

I have been renting my home as a vacation rental since 2010 but am new to AirBnB. Have over 40 reviews on another site and all 5 star

The space

This is a unique home designed and restored with attention to details. The front door leads to the two story entrance hall and sweeping curved staircase to the second floor. The main floor has the kitchen with seating area, dining room and two level living room as well a powder room, laundry and terrace with gas grill. Upstairs there are three generous size bedrooms, each with their own private bath. The master and one other bedroom have king beds. The third bedroom can be configured as either a single king or two extra long twins. The forth bedroom has a queen size bed and adjoins the master and shares the master bathroom. The master also has a private terrace. Of course all bedrooms have flat screen televisions as does the kitchen and living room.

Guest access

Guests have exclusive use of the house as described.

Interaction with guests

Either I or a friend of mine should I be out of town will be available to assist in any way possible during the stay but your privacy will be respected. I never enter the home without your permission unless there is an emergency.

Other things to note

The 4th bedroom is a small room designed as office or huge walk in closet for the master bedroom. There is a door between this small bedroom and the master bedroom but there is no direct access to the hall or bathroom. It is necessary to enter the master bedroom for access. More privacy than having two beds in the same room but not as much as a typical bedroom. Great for couples that sometimes need to sleep apart.

We had a great stay in Douglass house. We where 8, travelling by car and stayed 4 nights. The house was spacious, the rooms big and very well equipped. Internettconnection was very good. We had no problem to park the car (in the street), and the place is so close to the main road so access was easy - and it was easy to get around. Douglas was a wonderful host, and communication was fast and easy.We realy enjoyed the house, and had a great time.

Work travel causes me to be a frequent AirBnB user. Of the MANY places I've stayed Doug's place is my fav. The photos do zero justice to the home. It's huge, amazing location, zen, amazing kitchen, superbly clean, and the beds are addictively comfortable. Doug loves his home and it's very apparent. He is an amazing host- This is definitely a place I will return to on my next visit to L.A.

Douglas is a great host, he responds fast during first contact, inquiry and during the stay. He lives in close proximity to the house and is always keen to help. We arrived very late, but Doug was there to welcome us and show us around the house. His house is indeed glamorous, beautifully decorated, and the beds are very comfortable. We expected to have 3 1/2 rooms, but there is actually four rooms - I think he just upgraded the fourth bedroom with a nice queen bed. The house is around 10 minutes drive to the Universal Studios. Shopping and nice coffee shops are available 5 minutes from the property.

Response from Douglas:
Thank you Kathryn. I've had many vacation rental guests over the last 6 years that I've been renting my house but you were the first from AirBnB. You were terrific guests and I would be very happy for you to rent my home the next time you are in LA. You are always welcome!
