  • Christmas Vacation 2014

    "We cannot say enough about this experience from the time we placed the order until we left the property to return home. Our primary contact (Mary Kay) was so helpful and full of information regarding directions and sightseeing opportunities. This really helped us plan out our week before we even stepped on the plane. This was our first family trip to the LA area so our primary focus were the typical tourist spots. The house being built on the side of the mountain provided a beautiful view of the landscape with the city on the distant horizon. The location was perfect - 15 minutes to Universal/Warner Bros, 10 minutes to the strip and museums, an hour to Disney and the ocean. It was originally suggested by the travel agent to use a Disney hotel and we are go grateful we found this place instead. The house was clean, organized, and they provided a 'guide book' that detailed everything we needed to know about the house, along with emergency contacts. There was more than enough room for our family of five to sleep, eat, relax. When we arrived, there was a Christmas tree set up in the living room, lights on the deck, and a couple of goodies as a welcome present on the dining room table. This was a nice surprise for our kids who reluctantly assumed that we would not be celebrating Christmas this year. During the stay, we also received a couple of e-mails from Mary Kay with some 'secret' directions to be able to hike to a couple of interesting points throughout the park. We would highly recommend this home to anyone else who may be planning a trip out that way."

  • Great Place!

    "We (two couples) stayed at Howard's End for a long weekend while in LA for the Northern Trust Golf Tournament up at Riviera. Everything was perfect. The house is quite comfortable and very clean, located just a mile from Venice Beach. We walked to a couple of great spots for dinner and were surprised how quiet the neighborhood is given its proximity to the main street to the beach. The owner Ross was also very helpful and responsive during the set up process. We didn't have any issues and he promptly returned our cleaning deposit. Thanks Ross for being such a great host!"

  • Exceptional Service From CHG.

    "I have so much gratitude to Keri and her team at Creative Housing Group. To stay in one of their beautiful homes is always a joy. CHG can't do enough for you, but leave you alone at the same time. Properties that are elegant, clean and yet full of character! They have catered for my needs, whenever I stay in L.A. for some years and I would never use anyone else. I cannot recommend highly enough. Superb."

  • Absolutely Perfect!

    "This was a last minute getaway for us. Just me and my wife for the weekend and it was perfect. The California Sweet was our home for the weekend and it was beautiful. Very Very cozy. The location was just as great. Quick short walks to Santa Monica Blvd where there are plenty of restaurants and even a Target. Sunset Plaza, and other areas of WeHo are easy to reach by vehicle. What made this stay even better was the ease of booking, check-in, and check out. Gina is so easy to communicate with. There is no doubt that we will stay at these properties again."
