The Hills, The Hills, Plum Guide home in Los Angeles

Click to book The Hills, The Hills now: from £6990 per night Tucked into the hillside, this lavish home is what LA living is all about. You’ll be in the well-to-do neighbourhood of Bel Air, right next to Getty Park for a little fresh air and cityscape views. This home is simply stunning, from the moment you step into the art nouveau glass entrance, to the glass atrium overlooking the hills, and out to the stone-hewn pool terrace. There’s no shortage of ways to while away the days –a full-size tennis court with floodlights, the waterfall-fed swimming pool with its sunken Jacuzzi tub, or perhaps a game of pool in the sleek rumpus room. Balmy LA nights were made for barbecues, so the gas grill and big outdoor dining table come in handy. Should the evening turn chilly, there are myriad lounges and sitting rooms inside, all decked out with fireplaces and curated furniture with a hint of 60s charm. Bagging the master bedroom means you can enjoy a soak in the circular bathtub, a roaring fire before bed and a huge walk-in wardrobe that could rival a Hollywood star. Sleeps up to 16 | 8 Bedrooms | 9 Bathrooms

Dark walls and silken throws add a sense of romance and glitz to the place. And if you think the incredible swirling staircase with its glass safety rails and huge chandelier make a statement, you should check out the pool with its enviable views right out across the city. Inside, anthracite and slate blend with deep rugs and touches of silver to create thoroughly Hollywood interiors, and if you can take your eyes off the views from almost every window, you're rewarded with unique design features and high-end furnishings.

Quarter Moon, Plum Guide home in Los Angeles

Click to book Quarter Moon now: from £5250 per night Sculpted out of bricks and mortar, this place is the embodiment of Lala land luxury and extravagance. A favourite of local A-listers (Prince lived on the next street over), you’ve got to imagine that his Hollywood home probably looked something like this. Yet, despite the feeling of seclusion, Soho House West Hollywood and Sunset Boulevard are just four minutes away in the car. Beyond this, they say a picture says a thousand words, so we implore you to scroll through just to get a complete picture of what this beautiful house is all about – the photos certainly do it justice.

No Place Like Home

No Place Like Home, Plum Guide home in Los Angeles

No Place Like Home, Plum Guide home in Los Angeles

Click to book No Place Like Home now: from £1100 per night Nestled in the private, distinctive area of Sullivan Canyon, this characterful family home sits on Old Ranch Road, a rare treasure of a street in Los Angeles where horses and children wander the streets and cars are asked to drive under 10 miles per hour. Extremely safe and family-friendly, this particular pocket of affluent Brentwood is a true delight, with horse trails and hiking trails through the Santa Monica Mountains a stone’s throw away from your back garden. The home itself is a rustic, U-shaped ranch home with a fenced pool, grassy yard and private patio. Kids will go mad for the resident horse and magical playhouses in the garden, but the inside of the home is just as lovely – a dreamy space with tall ceilings and loads of natural light filtering through large sash windows. There’s a country farmhouse feel to the décor, with muted colors, wicker furniture and pastel florals. We love the large kitchen especially, perfectly outfitted for breakfasts all together as a family before you explore the surrounding city. Head to Santa Monica State Beach – a twelve-minute drive away – before topping the afternoon off with ice cream at the Brentwood Country Mart, just six minutes away from your home. Or, if you are in the mood for a more cultural excursion, The Getty museum is just an eleven-minute drive away and promises excellent exhibits and incredible city views. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
