Hello Gourd-geous! It’s the spookiest season of the year and we’re excited to bask in the thrills and chills of it all. There’s nothing like a Haunted Hollywood Spooktacular Guide to celebrate Halloween, so we did the legwork for you! Check out some of our must-do’s this October:

House of Spirits: A Haunted Cocktail Soirée | Step inside the House of Spirits – home to all things mysterious, magical and macabre. The resident spirits focus their tale on the demise of the Vasiliev family at the hands of the unholy ‘miracle man,’ Volkov. House of Spirits weaves a disquieting and original story with riffs on classic Russian/Scandinavian folktales certain to leave guests delightfully chilled. Enter a world of phantasmic refinement as you mingle with spirits, witness secret ceremonies, commune with the dearly departed on a giant Ouija Board, enjoy themed cocktails, magic, music and more! Find tickets and FAQs here.

Candlelight Halloween: A Haunted Evening of Classical Compositions | A performance of some haunted classical music like you’ve never seen before. Fever’s Candlelight is an intimate setting in a historical building, Sanman Studios, that’s almost as stunning as the arrangements you’ll hear. Guests will savor the music in uniquely romantic atmosphere created by flickering candlelight and some of the best-known composers in history. A Spooktacular musical event with Michael Jackson, Danny Elfman, John William, Frédéric Chopin, Franz Schubert and more on the program list. Scheduled for multiple days and times throughout the season, tickets are available here.

The 22nd Annual Día de Los Muertos at Hollywood Forever | The 2021 Dia de Los Muertos at Hollywood Forever is Saturday, October 30. With the intention of providing an authentic venue where the ancient tradition of Día de Los Muertos is observed, celebrated and preserved, the festival was born. This festival of life is a creative platform for the means of remembering the departed spirits of our lives. It provides a gateway for those who wish to reacquaint themselves with deeply rooted traditions and engage with one of the most devotional celebrations for the continuous cycle of life. At the heart of this sacred event are the meticulously individually crafted ofrendas and spiritual altars. Tickets and headliner information available here!

Villa Carlotta | Nestled in the heart of Hollywood history lies Villa Carlotta. Designed by Arthur E. Harvey in 1926, the community was built by Thomas Ince, the first producer-director who turned moviemaking into business by opening his own film studio, “Inceville.” Thomas created the property for his wife, Elinor, an American stage and motion-picture actress. The iconic style and design pay homage to the Golden Age of Hollywood, with the building dubbed as a Los Angeles Historical Cultural Monument in 1986. From the Art Deco motifs to the most iconic history of residents, there’s haunting beauty at every turn. The perfect place to turn in after a night of Halloween fun to cuddle up together for a nightcap!

Villa Carlotta and the surrounding neighborhood glitters with remnants of the Golden Age of Hollywood, no matter the time of year, but especially in a Hollywood standout season like Halloween. For more information on how to join our community, call 213.640.5559 or visit villacarlottala.com.

Villa Carlotta’s dreamy area regularly hosts some of the nation’s top farmers markets, which means they’re just steps outside our front door.

With summer in full swing and the world reopening, we’re all feeling a bout of cabin fever. What better way to enjoy the fruits of a Southern California summer than a day trip to one of Villa Carlotta’s gorgeous neighboring cities! There’s a vast array of possibilities in our region for an entertaining way to spend a day. Our favorite? Santa Barbara!


GETTING THERE | Hop in your car and take a drive up the 101, or take a look at the train schedule for an easy day-trip up the Santa Barbara coastline. Just north of downtown, LA’s Union Station offers travelers an alternative transportation option, with trains that leave periodically throughout the day. Ticket prices for the scenic trip north floating around $30. If the train isn’t your speed, hop in the car and cue up your favorite road trip mix for a drive up the Pacific Coast Highway. Why not as speedy as taking the 101, the PCH provides a more scenic route, peppered with lovely spots to stop along the way such as the Getty Villa, Malibu and Carpinteria.


THE FUNK ZONE | Downtown Santa Barbara, a.k.a “The Funk Zone” is the main drag on State Street, stretching a few blocks between the ocean and Highway 101. Conveniently adjacent to the Amtrak Train Station, the Funk Zone district speaks to Santa Barbara’s contemporary side, offering a variety of boutique tasting rooms, cafes, galleries and shops for a charming stroll in Santa Barbara proper.


URBAN WINE TRAIL | Reserve tickets of the Urban Wine Trail experience, spanning six neighborhoods including the Funk Zone, Presidio, Midtown, La Arcada, Goleta and Summerland. With 24 wineries to experience, we understand if you can’t make it to all of them. If we had to choose, we’d send you over to Deep Sea Wine to take in 360-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands and Riviera.


BEACHES | What’s a trip to Santa Barbara without some much-needed beach time? There are plenty of gorgeous beach options we love, like Butterfly Beach, East Beach and Arroyo Beach. Bring a beach blanket and some snacks for some sea-sprayed down time in this charming corner of the SoCal coast.


BOTANIC GARDEN | Check out 10 different communities of California-native plants at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden! Open every day from 10am-6pm, the garden offers a Japanese tea shop and garden-style gift shop. Tickets are just $16 for adults and $8 for children.


HISTORY | Santa Barbara is rich in history. Plan to take self-guided interior and exterior tours of the Santa Barbara Courthouse, built in 1939 and still in operation today. Pop into the Santa Barbara Old Mission House and Park, also known as the “Queen of the Missions,” for a dose of California history. We also recommend visiting some exhibits at Santa Barbara’s Museum of Natural History, located on the historic Stearns Wharf.


To top off your day of adventures, travel back to Villa Carlotta and unwind with some of our perks. Take a dip in our heated saltwater pool or pop open one of your new bottles of Santa Barbara wine and enjoy some rooftop views.


One day not enough? There are tons of Airbnb’s and hotels in the area that are perfect to extend your day-trip into a weekend staycation. We love being neighbors with special places like Santa Barbara. We can’t wait to hear the stories you bring back with you.

For an unforgettable facial look no further than Hollywood legend, Kate Somerville, known for her clinical skincare treatments that will leave mom looking red carpet ready on her special day. Back at Villa Carlotta, we offer luxurious amenities like slippers and robes to make you feel like royalty. Mom can continue unwinding at the end of the day by relaxing poolside at our property.
