Spend lazy days spent by the pool and lively nights at Whisky a Go Go, or snap a selfie at Venice Beach or the Hollywood sign, both within a 30-minute drive of thes vacation rental sin West Hollywood. These one- and two-bedroom Sunset Boulevard suites have a kitchen but you may prefer to head downstairs to the Tesse restaurant for French fare. Pink’s Hot Dogs, a 10-minute drive away, is an absolute must.

Step out onto Hollywood Boulevard from these chic fully-furnished studios and one-bedroom holiday rentals in Hollywood, sleeping up to five people. Spot iconic stars on the Walk of Fame, watch street performers in front of the Chinese Theatre and snap selfies with celebs in the Wax Museum, a 10-minute walk away. Parking is available for a nightly fee and the Hollywood-Highland subway station is a short stroll away.

6. Rustic bungalow in the Hollywood Hills


Above Franklin Village and near Griffith Park is this one-bedroom vacation rental in the Hollywood Hills. Surrounded by greenery, the cabin-like home has sweeping views of the city, a free-standing bath tub, a Nespresso coffee machine and all the essential amenities that make for a relaxing stay. This airbnb may not have a pool but it does have air conditioning and a stellar two-floor patio that includes a large, swinging bed perfect for gazing at sunsets with a glass of wine in hand.

7. A scene-stealing view for two


This Moroccan-inspired guesthouse, set in the Hollywood Hills, is adorned with Berber-style rugs and Moorish metal tables but it’s the view that steals the show. Full-sized windows look out over a hazy city by day and a twinkling LA cityscape by night – but the hot tub on the terrace is the place to take it all in. There are Hollywood views from the bedroom too.

8. An all-villa thriller


This two-bedroom 1920s villa is built in Spanish Colonial Revival style like many of California’s best-loved buildings – whitewashed walls, wooden doors and terracotta roof tiles. The host, Diego, is Spanish, too, and on hand during your stay. The patio, with its outdoor fire pit and seating, is the centrepiece. You’re close to the Hollywood Bowl, where you can enjoy an open-air concert, and Runyon Canyon Park, which offers hiking trails with serious views.
