BY : Nicolle Monico | 2013

If you’re going to vacation in La-la-land for an extended period and want to get a feel for how Hollywood celebs live, you may as well do it right. You could rent a penthouse suite at The Peninsula Beverly Hills or choose a Sunset Heights four-bedroom vacation rental and really get a feel for California’s good life. The modern home comes fully furnished and features Oak hardwood floors, a spacious living room with 24' ceilings and fireplaces located both indoors and outdoors.

The large gourmet kitchen is great for entertaining with its granite countertops, custom made Maple wood cabinets and on chilly nights guests can enjoy the terrazzo radiant heated floors. Since Southern California boasts (an almost) year-round warm weather, the lap pool and BBQ area provides a nice place to relax outside and cool off. When you want to snuggle up and watch a movie, head to your own private state-of-the-art screening room which has seating for 10. All bedrooms come with their own bathrooms and the master boasts a king size bed and walk-in closet. To ensure privacy, a gated entrance is situated at the foot of the driveway. The property requires a minimum of 30 days and prices begin at $2,000 per night.
