We arrived on a Saturday evening after a long haul from Europe and took our rental car through the city towards the distant Hollywood hills. Once we entered "the hills" and started climbing the turns on Outpost Drive we immediately felt the unique vibe of this special part of town. Finding the house and getting access was very easy courtesy of the instructions provided by Frances.
The place on Macapa Drive offers quick and easy access to US101 and we ended up taking daytrips that took us up to Santa Barbara und down to San Diego. Universal Studios is a seven minute drive and if you arrive on time at 9 AM on a weekday you won't have issues finding parking and might even consider to save the hefty surcharge on the Front of Line (aka Gate A) daypass. We recommend that you take the Minions Ride first since this one builds the longest lines as the day progresses.
The house was really the perfect hub to become part of city life if we wanted to and to get to the beach the day after.
Needless to say that LA does require a car to get around and that the traffic can be painful at any given time of day. Once you accept that - otherwise you should not consider LA your holiday destination in the first place - the Hollywood hills provide the perfect setting for your visit in the City of Angels. And yes - you can see the Hollywood sign from the driveway which always made us smile in the morning.

Frances is the perfect host and we were lucky enough to meet and chat several times.

We are definitely considering to come back to spend more time among the stars.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house is bright & light and very comfortable. There is a king sized bed in the main bedroom, a queen bed in the second bedroom and a fold-out queen size bed in the lounge. The only bathroom is off the main bedroom, however this was never a problem for us. There is no longer a tub there to climb in and out of, but a large walk-in shower. The house is very clean and beautifully decorated - lots of personality! My teenage daughter loved the DVD library and the fact that she had her own DVD player in her bedroom. The location of the house is perfect - up in the Hollywood Hills away from the city, but so close to all the attractions such as Universal Studios, Warner Bros Studios and the Walk of Fame.
