  • Nice Place, Good Location

    "Good location north of downtown LA for accessing Santa Monica, Venice, Pasadena, and all points north of downtown LA. Close to Beverly Hills, Hollywood Boulevard, the Hollywood Bowl, Sunset Strip, etc. As noted, the apartment is in an older (circa 1920-1930) house in the Hollywood Hills area and has a nice outdoor area in which to sit for morning coffee or evening cocktails. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was adequate. One caveat: the air conditioning consisted of one "portable" unit (not really portable because it was vented through a window in the living room and could not be moved, and one had to drain the water dehumidified from the air every few hours after the water holding tank filled up), so if you're used to a really cool inside environment you might find this inconvenient. Having said that, however, we - being used to a very cool interior temperature - dealt with it with minimal inconvenience and made use of an oscillating fan in the bedroom to help keep us cool at night. The owners were great...there when we arrived...unobtrusive...easy to talk to, etc. I would stay there again."

  • Perfection!

    "We were looking for a location that could serve both as a getaway/staycation, and also as a place where we could host our 10th anniversary party. And we couldn't have made a better choice than Rayen Manor. We are SoCal-ers, so for us it was a staycation. We invited a few friends from out of town who were coming to our party to stay at the house with us, and as each one arrived, it was so much fun to show them around! Brenda and Martin went above and beyond to help us as we planned for the party, answering all of our questions quickly and thoughtfully. Brenda even allowed us to come look at the backyard to get a sense of the space for decorating purposes. And she includes special touches that make the house feel like a personal resort - fluffy robes in the master bedroom, a binder full of local info, and tons and tons of movies. The house itself is beautifully appointed. The space flows, and the furnishings are lush. And can we talk about the master bathroom for a sec? It is phenomenal!!! The backyard, where we hosted our party, is magical with its outside bar, terraced patio, fireplace, and multiple seating areas. At night, we (along with our guests) would sit in the stone hot tub connected to the pool and gaze up at the stars. Mornings were spent sipping coffee in one of the many cozy seating areas. The game room was a popular afternoon and evening hangout. We took turns playing pool or playing one of the many board games available. Our party was an enormous success. We're pretty much perfectionists when it comes to hosting parties or gatherings - we like our guests to feel a happy sense of community, and Rayen Manor had much to do with that at our party. Again and again we were approached about the house - what an incredible place, how did we find it, could we please rent it again and host another party. This is a long review, but truly, we cannot recommend Brenda and Rayen Manor enough. It's the perfect getaway - whether you're traveling to Los Angeles or an Angelino, this place is ideal!!! The morning we checked out, we were surprisingly sad. But we have incredible memories of the perfect weekend - with friends, family, a celebration, and some quiet time - and Rayen manor played a major role in that perfection. Thank you Brenda!!! We cannot wait to come back!!!"

  • Great beach home location, perfect for families with kids

    "We truly enjoyed our stay at this home. It is an easy two block walk to the beach and just a few minutes walk to downtown and the pier. We have a 4-year-old daughter and an 11-month-old son, so I was looking for a place where the kids could nap quietly yet still be close enough to the daytime action, and this was a perfect blend. This house is definitely family friendly, especially for those with young children. It has a kids' room with fun bunk beds and a large cupboard full of toys. And I was so appreciative of all of the baby gear-- high chair, pack n' play, even a baby monitor and a baby gate for the staircase! Plenty of beach towels and stand toys for the beach. The owners were really great to work with, and communication was very easy and consistent all the way from the inquiry process to the end of our vacation. We even had one minor malfunction with something in the house, and the owner was easily reached, dealt with and remedied the problem swiftly and efficiently, and made definite effort to make sure our vacation was not inconvenienced in any way. We had a wonderful time and would love to stay there again in the future!"

  • Great location, Fantastic stay

    "As the other reviewers have stated, the condo is in a great location. Just a walk to Hermosa pier and the beach. Our 5 year old enjoyed the pool and got better at swimming during our time day. The condo had everything our family needed and owner was on top of making sure the arrangement went smoothly. Thanks!"
