Neighbors are very close by and they are super-lovely. Movie industry people, artists and professionals are all around and are very dear friends.

Our house is unique because of the beautiful, peaceful, vibe that everyone reports who have stayed there. Total relaxation, peace and love fills our house. We feel it and know you will too!
The max in the house is 10 - 12. No little ones from 2 - 6 are allowed at any time - no exceptions, sorry! The occupancy is due to noise levels and nearby neighbors. The little kids rule - too many fun things to climb and get into -- we love them but ages 2- 6 are the TERMINATOR years, we know we had them too!
