Charlie Was Here, Plum Guide home in Los Angeles

Click to book Charlie Was Here now: from £170 per night Part of a complex once owned by Charlie Chaplin, this home is a combination of rustic, Spanish style and modern Boho chic. In a prime location, it's tucked away on the border between Hollywood and West Hollywood and we bet it could tell some stories about the golden age of cinema. Recently updated, plenty of period features have been left intact, while all the mod cons have also been added. Painted all white and with wooden floors, you'll find some of the arched doors and windows this era home is known for, along with stylish furnishings and quirky decorative pieces. The kitchen and bathroom are of an older style but have plenty of character, and we particularly love the feature wallpaper in the master bedroom. Our favourite thing about this home is the private garden – a tranquil oasis where you can sit outside, surrounded by tropical planting. Just a five-minute drive from Hollywood, whether you're here for work or leisure, it's a great LA location just off Santa Monica Boulevard. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom

Stepping in to look around, you'll notice the high vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and stone-hearth fireplace that exudes heaps of rustic charm, while the grand piano takes you back to the bygone Golden Age of Hollywood. Wandering through the living room, you'll feel like you're walking along the walls of a castle with the iron chandelier and long dark wood dining table fit for a king or queen. Speaking of, the views from just about every room look out onto the dramatic rolling hills, with one of the bedrooms overlooking a genuine Hollywood-style castle – complete with a drawbridge and moat. Outside, stretch out on your sun-soaked wraparound balcony and enjoy breakfast on the elegant outdoor dining area surrounded by tall trees and lush greenery. Beyond this characterful home, you'll find scenic Griffith Park a ten-minute drive away, that's perfect for morning runs or longer afternoon hikes. And if you're looking for the glitz and glam of tinsel town, then take the nine-minute drive to the star-studded Hollywood Boulevard and its prestigious Walk of Fame.
