House exceeded all expectations - WOW!!!
House exceeded all expectations - WOW!!!
I rented this house from Oct 2-9 when our extended family traveled to LA for a wedding. The house exceeded ALL expectations. All of our questions were answered quickly/thoroughly/honestly throughout the entire process (prior to making reservation, prior to arrival, & after departure). Owner was very kind in allowing us to access the house prior to the regular check-in time (so we could drop off luggage while the cleaning crew was finishing up). The owner met us at the house & gave us a very thorough tour, explaining how to use the TVs/internet/ stove/everything else that we needed to know! He told us about good places to eat & cool things to check out. He answered all of our questions. We had a minor issue with one of the bathrooms during our stay & he drove up from the valley to fix the problem the same day we called him. We were definitely impressed with all aspects of our stay. The house is SO spacious! The pictures in this listing are good, but the house is enormous! There were 8 adults in our party & we had plenty of space to spread out & ensure we didn't kill each other while staying together for an entire week. The bedrooms & bathrooms were spacious & the beds were large & comfortable. We used both the futon & the “bonus room/daybed” on the 3rd floor for our entire stay & those beds were comfortable as well. There are plenty of TVs in the house to keep everyone entertained when we weren’t out exploring. The house is decorated with great artwork & comfortable furniture. We were able to fit 2 full-size cars in the garage. The kitchen had everything that we needed & more. The outdoor Zen Garden was such a fabulous retreat; watching the birds in the fountain never got old! There are bikes/boogie boards in the garage, along with helmets & locks. We used the bikes almost every day & really enjoyed having them there. This place truly was our home away from home for the 7 days we were in the LA area. It’s a short walk to Venice Beach & the famous Abbott-Kinney Boulevard. We walked to the Venice Canals one day & that was enjoyable too. This location is FANTASTIC! It’s not oceanfront, but it’s such a short walk (less than 5 minutes), & the amount of space that you get with this house made our decision easy. It is easy to get to/from the highway & is a short drive to LAX airport. We enjoyed everything about our stay at this house, & really appreciate the hospitality of the owner & the management (Phyllis was great). We highly recommend this house!!!

Venice is Outstanding.
Venice is Outstanding.
This property is terrific, better than advertised! Very professional from Pre-arrival to departure. We would certainly rent this home again as the location could not be beat, Bob was easy and accurate to work with and the home itself is outstanding. We all loved the art (thanks, Paul), the Zen Garden, and the ability to do all things SoCal from this locatiion. From bike helmets to beach chairs, this property has it all. Five stars. Very cool.

Great Holiday Destination!
Great Holiday Destination!
Our family, 2 adults, 4 adult children, and 2 adult friends all stayed at this house for our annual Christmas trip. It was fabulous! The house is within walking distance of beautiful Venice Beach and Santa Monica. Coming from NC, it was just as "California" as we had hoped with skateboarders, roller bladers, an over 25 miles biking path, surfers, and sites you just cannot see on the East Coast. Everything is close by: groceries, restaurants, shopping. Bob, owner, has become a legend in our family because he was so warm and welcoming in a CA way. We even left much of our clothes, and they kindly mailed them to us in NC. The house itself never felt cramped, lots of living space. Also enjoyed much of what LA had to offer: Stevie Wonder concert and Jay Leno. Highly recommend this property and this destination for great fun!

What a beautiful holiday home. We struggled with all the stairs because our infant decided to start crawling and climbing, but a truly amazing house with lots of amenities, Bob was terrific with efficient instructions and kindness - flexible with our needs and we would definitely stay here again (when our girls are older and capable with stairs). We had a great time!

Great house - great location. We wish we were there for fun rather than work, but it was a nice treat to come home to a lively, fun house at the end of each day rather than a hotel room. We'll be back for sure! Thanks.

We loved our stay at the Hollister house. The owners had everything we needed and more. The bikes and entertainment room were great. Small touches were everywhere; toiletries, super soft towels, spices in the kitchen cabinets and more.

We had a perfect Thanksgiving there in Hollister House. The boys loved the pool table and we all biked to the beach most days. Really recommend it. Would love to use the same house again.

Great place, had everything we were looking for and more! We more most impressed by the location, so close to the beach, plus not far from food and shops. Having parking and a good night sleep made our vacation so easy...I definitely recommend this place to any group looking to stay in SoCal!!!

We had a great time in the house, found everything to be as advertised or better. It's a perfect way to travel with a little one, with all the details taken care of (who wants to lug a high-chair on vacation?). We had friends over for dinner, had drinks on the roof, worked the beach and main street, all from a great location (with parking!). Everyone was impressed with the place. There is no better way to do an extended stay in Santa Monica.

We just came back from a fantastic week at your beautiful house in Santa Monica! The kids loved their rooms, the pinball machine, the juke box, the ping pong table - just perfect for families! The location near the beach and easy access to all local attractions made it the perfect place to stay! Thank you and we look forward to coming back! Kim, Steven and family.
