This legendary $15 million landmark can be all yours for a short-term rental. It provides a unique and exclusive way to escape far-flung venues and the usual hotels, as well as create lifelong remembrances. In addition to enjoying a historic house beautifully decorated according to Houdini’s era, you will experience the magic of centenary trees in five acres of romantic gardens tended by 15 gardeners, intriguing artwork in unexpected places, seasonally curated flowers, sunny and shady photographic vistas, nine levels for entertainment, various locations for meals and ceremonies, hours of hiking trails, hidden passageways, a natural spring, a three-story waterfall, and outdoor and indoor jacuzzis. Your guests will never be bored. Brilliantly colored koi, regal peacocks, inquisitive turtles, giant bullfrogs, stately blue herons, and wild deer and their babies also add a unique charm to the estate. All of this in famed Laurel Canyon, two traffic lights from the Sunset Strip. We receive many requests, but The Houdini Estate rarely opens its gates to visitors. As part of the selection process, we ask your group for a $100 donation for an exclusive tour and send someone knowledgeable about the Houdini Estate and event planning to open up the property and explain its possibilities. Your $100 is donated entirely to an IRS-recognized charity and you receive a $100 credit toward your rent. Bring comfortable shoes and reserve an hour for the showing. We are kid and pet friendly.
