Why Deborah Blum chose The Flats
Historic property located on one of the most exclusive streets in the world. Safe, beautiful and tranquil neighborhood but centrally located and within walking distance to downtown Beverly Hills. This house has been in Deborah's family since 1941. Deborah's father was a Hollywood screenwriter who wrote STALAG 17 with Billy Wilder. We bought it from her parents 22 years ago. It's a well known house in Beverly Hills because it's one of two examples of the Craftsman style in the city. People often tell us it's their favorite house in Beverly Hills.
What makes this House unique
Although tranquil and serene inside, the house is centrally located. Easy walking to the cafes and shops of Beverly Hills. In spite of the glitz and glamor of BH, the house and neighborhood give off the feeling of living in a beautiful village. When traveling by car, visitors find that the location is convenient for travel to the beach, downtown and the Valley. We try to be green: Solar panels on roof, grey watering system for garden. Short term stays accepted. Minimum 3 days. Contact owner at Blumgallery.com for more information.

This is such a special, soulful, comfortable home. Yes very clean, yes check in was easy, yes accurately described, communicating with Owners easy and delightful, location is amazing, convenient, fun, just don’t book it unless you ask me first to see I’m staying there again! It is an absolutely special, comfortable, graceful home. So grateful to have found such a unique, happy place for our family to stay.
Amazing stay in the heart of Beverly Hills
We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is located right in the heart of Beverly Hills - it’s actually a 10 minute stroll to the shops on Rodeo Drive. Deborah was a super host and was very helpful with suggestions regarding restaurants and things to do. The house itself is full of character and very spacious. The pool is super sized perfectly maintained and our kids couldn’t have been happier with it. All in all it was a dream stay and we would recommend it to anyone considering an upmarket stay in Beverly Hills.
Great house, great location, Will definately stay here again.
Lovely home for the holidays
This was the perfect home for our family to spend the holidays together! Debbie is a really wonderful host and her home has everything we needed for our stay. All 12 of us fit perfectly and this is a super kid-friendly family home. We loved it!!! The Beverly Hills location can't be beat. Great memories were made here.
Great family vacation in a classic house.
The house was a dream-come- true, right on the famous Rodeo Drive. Comfortable, clean and perfectly situated. The art on the walls was fantastic, the interior furnishing tasteful. The house was perfect for our children (two teenagers, one younger). The hosts were helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. We walked all over Beverly Hills and found it easy to get to the beach and Hollywood. Highly recommend!
I rented this villa with five friends and we had a blast. The location was perfect, the house comfortable and full of good cheer. We cooked several delicious meals and loved hanging out around the kitchen table. Each of us picked the bedroom we wanted and happily found that all the beds were sublime. Can’t wait to come back!
