About Kirby Tepper
My father was born in L.A., so I'm a 2nd generation Angeleno--in fact, my Dad went to Hollywood High, just around the corner from here. And my mom spent her entire career at CBS television, also within a few minutes walking distance of my house. I started this vacation rental 10 years ago, well before the craze and before some well-known booking sites existed. I spent much of my career in the entertainment world...I started my career as a Broadway (New York) performer, then moved back to my hometown of L.A. to do some t.v. and film, eventually becoming a songwriter for various shows, most proudly having written a song in the first 'Shrek' movie. Several years back I made a career transition and became a psychotherapist, obviously a big change, and I love my work. My office is nearby, in a landmark building. For those of you who know who Howard Hughes was, my office is in his former headquarters in Hollywood. My actual office was his screening room--if you saw 'The Aviator' with Leonardo diCaprio, the screening room is where Hughes secluded himself and, well, let's just say it's a great irony that I'm a psychotherapist working amidst the spirits of that past.
Kirby Tepper purchased this House in 2001
Why Kirby Tepper chose Hollywood
I love Hollywood and am amazed and elated that it has had such a fantastic renaissance. There isn't a better location in Hollywood to experience the feel of what has happened here in the last several years. It's within walking distance of all the big Hollywood landmarks, theatres, and metro stops. For example, you can walk 5 minutes to the metro, take the metro one stop, and you're at Universal Studios. It's only a few minutes by car to the Museums, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood. People come here from all over the world, I live vicariously as they discover fun things to do, places to eat, clubs, etc. The house is a classic Hollywood Bungalow built in 1920 for studio workers. In 2008 I had the rear (smaller) Bungalow built from the ground up, and I live there.
What makes this House unique
Walking distance to major tourist attractions, tour buses, subways and L.A. metro, restaurants, shopping. Very clean (see reviews for confirmation), very private. Off-street, free parking within feet of the front door (unheard of in Los Angeles, trust me!)

Perfect LA home
Great weekend for my sons and i to watch the Dodgers series. Great location. Kirby was fantastic host. Highly recommend place. Great place
Great place to stay with family in Hollywood!
Well-kept house only one block from Sunset Boulevard and a 5 minute walk to the Chinese Theater and Walk of Fame. Kirby was an outstanding host, communicative and helpful, and easy to approach with any concerns. My wife, 4-year-old, 2-year-old, and in-laws all had plenty of space, and everyone had a great time. The price was right, especially considering the location, parking, and accommodations. We’ll certainly plan to stay again when we’re back in the area.
Quaint, clean and comfortable cottage
From beginning to end we had a fabulous stay. The cottage was very clean with all the comfort of home. Kirby was available to help in every way and answered all of our questions even before we arrived.
:) Had a great time hosting you. The perfect guests; hope to see you again.
Excellence for L.A. sightseeing
Great home in walkable distance to most Sunset Blvd. related sights which suited our family of 5 with all necessary comfort. Easy check-in process with personal sightseeing suggestions in the neighbourhood prepared on the kitchen-counter. Very nice contact with owner. Highly recommended. We would definitely stay here again. Greetings from Germany, Bernd & Tanja with Florentina, Fred and Cara.
Book with confidence. Great spot.
Great spot, clean, close to everything, good value.
Perfect Hollywood bungalow
My spouse and our four teens spent several days in LA on vacation. This bungalow was pristine, charming, and a short walk to Sunset and Hollywood Blvd. It was a perfect home base for our adventures. We comfortably slept 6 between the 3 bedrooms, and would have had room for more, and especially appreciated the laundry, beautiful bathroom, and quaint outdoor areas in the front and rear yards. Kirby went out of his way to ensure our experience was a positive one. Would definitely stay here again.
Thanks for the kind words; it was a pleasure to have you!
The Sunset Hollywood Bungalow is located in a family-oriented neighborhood surrounded by everything Hollywood has to offer. It is a couple of minutes south of Mann's Chinese theater and Hollywood/Highland, 15 min. drive from downtown L.A., and between 20 to 40 min. (depending on traffic) to Santa Monica beach area.
