Hollywood Hills Home
According to the Los Angeles County tax records, the Hollywood Hills home of Kristen Bell was built in 1969. It was purchased by the actress via a trust at an impressive price of $3.1 million. It was the interior decorator, Stacey Vuduris who gave the home a wonderful facelift.
Location: If you want to reach the actress' home, you would have to go to the northeastern Santa Monica mountains in Los Angeles, California. The Mediterranean mansion is cut off from the hustle of the city and is located among the thickly wooded Hollywood Hills, just above Studio City.
Accommodation: There are many versions of what is available in the mini-mansion. While the tax records have noted that it is a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom manor, while another media source reported that it boasts 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms within the walls. The reality, however, seems to be in line with the taxman and the 3,900 square-foot home is single storeyed.
Features: The home features excellent, panoramic views of the city. Outside the home are beautifully manicured lawns and a medium-sized pool with Jacuzzi. There is a rocky backyard dotted with bougainvillea, jasmine and lavender. The whole yard seems to resemble some jungle gym. The interiors of the home are bright and impressive. The property is gated and a long private drive leads up to it. The well-lit and airy kitchen is covered in green fabric with white cabinets. The dining hall has a lovely chandelier made of clustered globes. The sophisticated look is further enhanced by the faux suede and chrome chairs.
Neighborhood: This neighborhood is densely packed with celebrities. Some of the big names residing here include George Clooney, Anna Nicole Smith, Michael Richards, Selena Gomez and Michael Richards.
Prolific actress Kristen Bell likes to do her bit for the environment and it doesn’t get much better than driving around in an eco-friendly ride like the hybrid-electric Chevrolet Volt. Bell had her Volt customized in a stunning midnight-black paint finish, though she opted out of having the tiny car decked out with chrome plated wheels and monogrammed seats. Bell’s Volt is as low key as herself though it allows the actress to achieve top speeds of up to 100 mph in all-electric mode alone, allowing her to drive around in a 30 mile range without using a drop of gasoline. Even when she doesn't have the 3 hours that Volt takes to fully replenish her car batteries, she gets a 31.4 mpg fuel economy in mixed conditions on her Volt’s gas-run powertrain which is pretty decent by Hollywood vehicles’ standard.
Kristen Bell was photographed vacationing in the azure beaches of Hawaii in September 2008. The actress spent about five days in the beach resort with her boyfriend, actor Dax Shepard. Bell made optimal use of her time off by splashing in the crystal clear sea waters and tanning herself in a bikini.
Location: The island state of Hawaii is an integral part of the United States Of America and is flanked by the Pacific Ocean on all sides.

Luxury 5 star rated accommodations like The Kahala Hotel and Resort, Turtle Bay Resort and The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua can be a bit costly in the price band of $400 to $650 per night of stay. Hawaii also offers scores of budget accommodations like The Hawaiian Monarch Hotel, Kauai Palms Hotel ,Uncle Billy's Hilo Bay Hotel and Aston Aloha Beach Hotel which charge reasonable rates in the range of $65 to $100 per day.
Main Attractions: The lovely sun kissed beaches draw millions of tourists every year and is by a mile the central attraction of Hawaii. The beaches offer a range of aquatic sports like scuba diving and snorkeling. The Volcano National Park is a one of it's kind tourist spot offering a grand stand view of several active and dormant volcanoes. A golf course located in the midst of 2000 feet high cliffs of the Ko'Olau mountain range in the island of Oahu in Honolulu is considered to be the most challenging course in the world and is a big hit with thousands of golf enthusiasts. Then of course there is the Pearl Harbor tour for history buffs which showcases some of America's most triumphant and devastating moments in World War 2.
