About Frances

I am an European Journalist who has been covering Hollywood for over 30 years. My life and privilege has been to interview and learn from every major Hollywood talent: their dreams, ups and downs, successes and failures... I have been visited by Catherine Zeta-Jones to Arnold Schwarzenegger to Will Ferrell just to name a few. The property has been used for fashion shots and as a movie location. For me Los Angeles means sunshine, blue wide-open sky, diversity of people, natural wonders, individuality, unimaginable cuisine and 'The sky's the limit' attitude. What I love about my property is the location: far away and yet so close to the hustle and bustle of Hollywood... from here you can quickly be anywhere the action is in minutes...or just enjoying a serene day on top of the world.

Frances purchased this house in 1975

Why Frances chose Hollywood Hills

As soon as I came to Los Angeles my dream was to live on Mulholland Drive, which is for me as historic as a cathedral would be in a town in Europe. MULHOLLAND DRIVE is a painting by David Hockney. KING OF THE MOUNTAIN was a fictional movie with Dennis Hopper, Harry Hamlin and Dan Haggerty loosely based on actual Mulholland Drive racers. The films MULHOLLAND DRIVE and MULHOLLAND FALLS were named after the road. Video games GRAND THEFT AUTO and MIDNIGHT CLUB features Mulholland Drive. R.E.M.'s song ELECTROLITE was inspired by Mulholland Drive and is mentioned. TOM PETTY refers to 'glide down over Mulholland' in the hit song 'FREE FALLIN'. In LOVE AND BASKETBALL Mulholland Drive is referred to during the scene in which Q and Monica meet up outside of her bedroom after the Spring Dance. It marks the street as a dead end where couples go for privacy.

Wonderful stay in the Hollywood Hills!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent an extra long weekend in this lovely home in Hollywood Hills. It is even more spacious than it looks in the pictures, and the bedrooms are so quiet. The beds & linens are of the highest quality and we found everything so comfortable. The views from all sides are fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the garden taking in the wonderful weather and beautiful sights, right outside our door.

The location is perfect for all activities in this area. We could be on Sunset Blvd, Hollywood Blvd, or Beverly Hills within minutes. Hiking in Runyon Canyon is just around the corner. This home is located amidst all the stars' homes and it was so exciting trying to spot a few. I highly recommend this for any group of two or four people. We were with another couple and the way the bedrooms are situated, you would never even know there was anyone else in the house! We were fortunate to briefly meet the owner, Frances, who is so lovely. You will love staying here!

awesome and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This place is hard to beat for coolness and convenience. It's a quaint and quiet Hollywood Hills property in an area we've all seen in dozens of movies and TV shows. The property itself was plenty big for our family of four with two bedrooms, a comfortable pull-out couch, a well-supplied kitchen, and some lovely outdoor spaces. It features off-road parking (a key feature in LA). Entertainment options include a diverse collection of books and a huge supply of DVDs.

The house sits just off Mulholland Drive and we found it quite convenient to northern LA. We walked to the north entrance of Runyon Canyon, Universal Studios is a 10-minute drive, and other places like the Hollywood neighborhood (great for restaurants), Griffith Observatory, and access to the Hollywood sign are reasonably close. (You can see the sign from the house's driveway.) The Getty is about a 25 minute drive in normal traffic.

The owner, Frances, is quite friendly and responsive. it's a really terrific place to stay.

Lovely accommodations and gracious host!

  • 5 of 5

Just off Mulholland Dr, this property is in an exclusive neighborhood in the hills. A short walk to Runyon Canyon and a quick drive to the walk of fame and the studios, the property is ideally located and yet is quiet and secluded as well. The house was very comfortable and spotless. The host was gracious and available if we needed her but afforded us all the privacy we expected at the same time. We highly recommend it!

HIGHLY Recommend

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, charming house perfectly located in the beautiful Hollywood Hills. It was absolutely perfect for my family of five. Only minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Hollywood, it's situated on a quiet street surrounded by nature, privacy and stunning views. The owner was incredibly helpful and responsive before, during and after. Can't say enough good things about this gem. Book it now.

Fun, Quirky and Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this cute little guest house. Driving up Outpost Drive into the Hollywood Hills is just amazing, and the views right around Mulholland are breathtaking- you can see the entire city! The one bathroom was big and spacious enough for our family of 5. The kitchen had just what we needed for some easy kid meals we cooked a few nights and my coffee in the mornings. The DVD collection is crazy! Even though this is a guest house, there is plenty of privacy and you would never know you were close to other houses. The parking spot is extra nice too! If we are ever in the area again we would not hesitate to stay again with Frances. Just perfect! Thanks Frances for a lovely visit to LA!

ALWAYS GREAT! This property and Frances has us ready to plan our next visit.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here multiple times and both through the Christmas and New Years Holiday time. It's the perfect location to get anywhere in the Studio City, Hollywood & Santa Monica areas. We spent a day at Universal and door to Universal is barely a mile. The space you are in is a perfect size for our family of three. Our daughter loves every bit of the colors and the look of this property. Also, we adore this property for being GREEN and environmentally friendly. Also, the Washer and Dryer is bigger than most places we've stayed which helps you spend more time having fun and less on laundry. Thank You Frances for a wonderful visit.
