Hi there! Welcome to our lovely home! We cannot wait to welcome you! Please take a few moments to carefully read this ad. We hope you find the answers to all your questions here and that it helps make the decision for you to book even easier! Sorry it's so long! We can't wait to hear from you. :) If you are ready to book and are booking outside the base rates ($285/hr for up to 50 people), please see the pricing breakdown below and send an inquiry with the number of people in your party including staff, desired rental times (including one hour for clean up and one hour for break down) and a description of your booking. ***WHERE WE ARE*** Have your guests enjoy our Hollywood Hills Mediterranean Villa atop a private, dead end road with unobstructed, jetliner views from downtown to Catalina. The Hollywood Hills are known for its *celebrity* and star-studded residents, and you can enjoy being among them. Designed for large scale entertaining, the property has a lush courtyard leading to a grand, two-story entry. The main level offers an oversized gracious living room full of curved walls of glass, stone hearth fireplace, custom accordion doors, hardwood floors, wrought iron and high ceilings. A beautiful oversized, open kitchen showcases granite counters, arabesque tile back-splash, stainless steel Wolf appliances and seamlessly unites with the Great Room and outdoor terraces. The lower level has direct access to extensive outdoor patios with full views, a 40-foot heated lap pool, spa, a private pool house, and well-appointed stainless steel outdoor bar and kitchen. This grand Hollywood Hills estate has TONS of free on street parking, but also off street parking for 2 cars. We are less than 1.5 miles from Hollywood/Highland Red Line Metro Station and have access to several bus lines at the base of the hill. The Hollywood Hills is the BEST place to be in LA: quiet, private streets, surrounded by hiking, sun, and easy access to the lively city below. We are centrally located to Runyon Canyon, Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and the Sunset Strip. We have just finished a pretty large-scale renovation and are in the process of buying new furniture and moving things around in common areas and outside. Some common spaces are not completely furnished - and you will need to construct your site from scratch. More photos to come! ***LEGAL STUFF, FEES AND INSURANCES*** Cleaning Fees: We support the Living Wage Pledge, which means that people who maintain our facilities are paid a living wage. A living wage is the minimum income necessary for someone to meet their basic needs and participate in their community. We recognize that these women and men provide essential support to us, which makes it possible for us to provide excellent and dependable hospitality to you. As such, the CLEANING FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-NEGOTIABLE. This is to ensure our cleaners are recognized as valuable members of our hospitality team and are treated with dignity and respect. When cleaners are paid a living wage, they’re better able to: 1) Support themselves and their family; 2) Perform consistent, high-quality work, and 3) Take time off to care for themselves or a family member. Thank you for understanding. To that end, we have a scaled cleaning fee, which is based on the number of people on the property at any given time. For each person over the first 50 people (cleaning fee listed above), we charge a cleaning fee of $3.54 per person declared OR $88.50 for every 25 declared. For undeclared person rates, see undeclared person section. Damages: Our cleaning fee is to ensure that the property is in great shape when you arrive and for minor cleaning after you leave. In the event that the property is not restored to its original condition, which requires additional cleaning by the owners for restoration you will be charged. ***RENTAL RATES AND SPECIFICS*** While this ad is specifically for our exteriors only, you can also rent the interiors only, or the entire house for an additional cost. We are completely flexible on the number of people the site can hold and hours for use (meaning time of day and minimum number of hours required). Prices vary (see pricing breakdown below). Condition: The Renter agrees to accept the facility in its "as is" condition. Rental Times: 1) The location is available 24 hours per day with prior agreement. All rentals adhere to the specified dates and times and are not to exceed 12 hours in a single day except by prior arrangement. 2) If your event runs longer than the original agreed upon time, overtime will be charged at 1.5 times the base rate for the first 2 hours over the agreed upon time, and 2 times the base rate for any hour or fraction thereof beyond. 3) You are responsible for costs incurred if the host is not able to prep the location in time for the following day's start time due to your overstay. Rates Schedule: Hourly Rate: Hourly Rate is based on the total number of people on site during your event including staff (see below). Setup and Cleanup Time: All rentals must include at least one hour for setup and one hour for cleanup in the request. Calculate Hourly Rate: Exterior only: The hourly rate is $285/hr for up to 50 people. For every 25 people above and beyond the first 50, add $65/hr.

David E. booked a birthday party for 20 people
Alexis was great at communicating what exactly to expect from the use of the outdoor space. She has a baby, so please keep in mind their might be a slight response delay, but nothing was never answered. I hosted my birthday party just in the backyard and it was perfect. There’s a small pool house that guest can use to change. Will book again to host another gathering or birthday celebration.

Michael C. booked an event for 50 people
From the beginning stages Alexis was very kind and helpful, she even offered to provide us with rental company recommendations. Even though Alexis was out of town for business the day of our event, she still made sure all of our needs were met with the help from D’Angelo (who also was a great help). The view from this home is amazing, all of our guests enjoyed it! Definitely worth booking for any type of party.
