About

Villa Valentino #16 is a cute little studio apartment with an airy loft for sleeping. It has been fully restored and fully furnished. It has double French doors leading onto a large private patio with BBQ for outdoor dining. The property features off-street parking behind a private gate and is located just 2 blocks south of the Hollywood Bowl, and 2 blocks north of the “Heart of Hollywood” at Hollywood Blvd and Highland Ave. Easy walking access to Disney’s El Capitan Theater, the Kodak Theater, Graumann’s Chinese Theater, the Metro station, restaurants galore and many other attractions. Close access to the 101 Freeway.

Designed by the Davis Brothers Architects, Villa Valentino is designated as Los Angles City Cultural Monument #397, and is one of the best remaining examples of the Garden Court style of architecture from the early 20th century. It is a hidden gem. Step back in time.

A simply A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! complex with lots of greenery, numerous brick courtyards, fountains and lots of little nooks to find a quiet place to chill. Carrie was very welcoming and greeted us like old friends.

Unit #16, at under 300 square feet, is a little tight for two people, but with so many windows, high ceilings and a wonderful deck, it's definitely doable.

It was great having a private courtyard/deck surrounded by flowering bushes and vines. The air smelled so clean with a very nice floral scent. Every morning we were greeted with hummingbirds and butterflies. We found ourselves spending more time on the deck than the area's "attractions". Truly an Oaisis!

Oh, it's an older building with lots of character - really well maintained for the age of the building. If "old world charm" is not appealing to you (it's nearly 100 years old, after all), there's plenty of bland hotels across the street.

This is a lovely little hideaway, a stone's throw from the fast action of Hollywood Blvd. In addition to the neat, clean rooms (with plenty of kitchen gear for cook-at-home lodgers) are all the compound's nooks and crannies with their burbling fountains, abundant plant life and places to sit and relax. The LA Metro (subway trains) is easy walking distance; drivers can access the 101 (Ventura Fwy) 100 yards up the road, though left turns out of the property are dicey most hours. Friendly staff, reliable Wi-Fi.

I stayed in unit #16 and loved my three weeks there. I was super comfortable and loved having a private patio. Carrie and the staff are fantastic and so welcoming. The apartment was comfortable with great internet and TV. You can easily walk to Hollywood Ave. The Starbucks is a block away. I will definitely stay here again.

From the time we were greeted at this charming property to the time that we checked out, we were thrilled with the whole experience. This property provided the ideal home base for whirlwind trip to LA. We rented a car, so the private and secure parking was greatly appreciated. The villa was spacious despite its small square footage and had everything we needed (with the exception of a hairdryer so frizzy beach hair became my new style!). The bed was luxuriously comfortable and the whole apartment was clean and welcoming. Our private terrace was a huge asset as well! The only downside was the initial smell upon entering the villa was reminiscent of an old cottage (to be expected with a vintage property), but it only took a few minutes to adjust and become unnoticeable. I should mention that I do have a very acute sense of smell, so others may not even notice.

We would recommend this place to anyone. This place was simply beautiful inside and out. The house was incredibly clean and spacious enough for two people. It was a very cute place to stay. The surrounding buildings and roads are hidden from the gate and it feels like your truly away from the city even though you are in the city. You are close enough to walk to everything! I would recommend this place to anyone for a peaceful getaway. My family and I will definitely be returning! Thanks for having us

We had a lovely stay in Villa Valentino #16. The property was laid out and stocked exactly as described. Carrie was lovely and welcoming. It is a little tricky to find the property entrance on first approach. We appreciated the lovely patio dining and the various nooks for enjoying the beautiful California evenings. The wifi is dependable and the parking was deeply appreciated. The location was perfect for our purposes. I would stay here again. Heads up that AT&T phone service is a little dicey from this location. The property is aware of that challenge and does provide a land-line telephone in the villa.

I can’t say enough great things about this rental. Situated on one of the busiest streets in Hollywood, you’d have no idea you were even in the city once inside the gates off Highland. The manager Carrie is delightful and helpful and full of great recommendations to make the most of your stay. I would recommend this little gem to anyone except I’m worried it wouldn’t be available next time I want to book it.

You really could'nt get much better than this. You are only a few blocks away from Hollywood and Highland with tons of restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Very walkable!

The apartment itself was very clean and perfect for 2 people. I cannot say enough about the courtyard though - worth the stay just to see then.

Manager was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

We fell in love with this property the second we walked through the gate. The entire complex feels like a movie set with beautiful fountains and brick walkways through arched halls and around fabulous lounging spaces. Our unit was all the way in the back and felt incredibly private. It was absolutely perfect for two people with a big comfy couch and moveable tables. The kitchen was very well equipped and we cooked breakfast every morning. Great bed in the sleeping loft, a full size dresser for unpacking, and solid air conditioning. The bathroom was clean and also well appointed with great water pressure. The giant patio with table and chairs was like icing on the cake! The location is fabulous for walking, driving, or ubering and felt very safe.
Carrie is a wonderful host and so fun to talk to! Her emails went into my spam folder initially, FYI.
I shared this space with one of my oldest and dearest friends and we were find sharing the bed but it would be ideal for a couple. We'd return in a heartbeat!

We traveled from San Francisco to Hollywood on the 4th of July. The 6 hour drive turned into 10 hours due to heavy traffic and 2 separate accidents. I emailed twice to let the property mgr. know we were stuck in traffic and being re routed due to an accident. She did not reply. We arrived a little after 11pm. She was extremely upset and very hostile. She literally was yelling at me in the parking lot. We were charged $150 late fee for being past 9pm . I could have stayed across the street for the night cheaper , checked in the next day and saved the yelling. I was on vacation, I work very hard I would of thought this being her job she would of been more pleasant and understanding. I have used airbnb numerous times from the East Coast to Hawaii and NEVER had this experience. The place was beautiful tho.

This was a great find, and Carrie (property manager) was fantastic. She has the cutest dog too. She was so helpful with everything and very accessible/timely in answering my questions and requests.

Surprisingly, the apartment and complex was quiet given the close proximity to the 101 and being off of Highland, which seems to be perpetually busy. (But then this is also Hollywood, which has a lot of traffic just about all the time).

The studio-- it's definitely small, but it was the perfect size for me, and I can imagine two people would get on well here too. There's a full working kitchen so you can prepare your meals. The bed was very comfortable, and it's in a loft above the main floor. The AC worked great, when it was needed. The internet and cell service worked perfectly.

Perhaps the best feature is the private balcony and patio table and chairs. I spent most of my mornings working out there before heading out for the day.

The complex itself is adorable. It has a number of tables, chairs and benches that you can sit and relax. And this place comes with off street parking (if you have a car), and as a solo-female traveler, I felt very safe and secure throughout my stay.

I hate to write a review and spoil this quiet oasis with more guests...but who am I to deter business from Carrie. Carrie was a very helpful and gracious host to me. This place is amazing, just mere minutes from Hollywood and Highland, but once you enter the front gate, its like you're swept away to a quiet secret garden. I stayed in the back studio apartment while I was working at the TCM Classic Film Festival. I wanted to be within a 10 minute walk of the festival footprint (Roosevelt Hotel/Chinese Theater/Egyptian Theater) and the Villa Valentino was perfect. Also, SO peaceful...like ZERO city noise. The rooftop terrace out the Studio front doors was perfect for morning coffee and watching the hummingbirds drink nectar from all the flowering plants. The whole place smells fresh and green, with all the flowers and plants. The building itself has old world charm, with a large central brick atrium, more gardens and water fountains. The studio is handsomely updated with bits of early 20th century
charm mixed with modern amenities and furnishings. Also, and this is an odd complement, the water pressure was amazing (sometimes showers in older buildings can be soft and drippy, but here it was very refreshing). This place is truly a gem and I will certainly stay at the Villa Valentino again next spring!

We had no complaints. Carrie was responsive and helpful. The unit was private, spotlessly clean, and while small, very comfortable. The complex was quite intriguing and peaceful with lots of common areas.

We'll never waste time looking for another place to stay in LA again!

Our stay was terrific. The apartment was beautiful, light, and comfortable. The private outdoor patio was great to relax and unwind after an active day. It was like staying in old Hollywood, yet comfortable and modern. When we return in the future, we will stay here again. We had minor issues that were dealt with right away.

I was in LA for one month working at the pantages theatre on the Hedwig and the angry Inch national tour. The walk from the villa to the theatre was good exercise through interesting and fun neighbourhoods. the apartment was cosy and comfortable. I was at the back and would hear birds singing before i could hear any traffic noise

The apartment was beautiful looked just as it did in the pictures and at first the manager was very nice. When it came to check out day I asked the manager if we could do a late check out bc I was moving into my new apartment that day she texted me back and said yes of course I had nobody coming in after you for two days. The next thing I get from her are an awful phone call accusing me of disappointing her and stealing the keys it was the most awful and insulting phone call I've ever received before right as I was already in the middle of a move. She is emotionally unstable and she kept $25 of my security deposit because she claimed I spilled a drink on her futon cover which is completely untrue I thoroughly inspected the apartment before I left and it was spotless. I would never stay there again!
