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."

PERFECT Venice Beach Location!!! (This is our new vacation lodging whenever we're in town)
"My sister and I had a girls trip planned and did not have a rental car. Many local friends mentioned what a GREAT location we were in and we couldn't agree more! We rented the bungalow in the back, utilized the bikes for evening boardwalk cruising and the short trip up to Santa Monica, walked 2 blocks over to Abbott Kinney and used the Starline Tour bus (which Carmen mentioned to us) to hitch a ride into LA and do the touristy thing for 2 days. The beach is literally 3-4 blocks from the house!! The bungalows are close and with everyone's windows open you can hear others moving about but everyone was always respectful of the time of day and friendly in passing.
Carmen has thought of everything! Don't worry about packing beach towels, hair dryers, etc...she even had an ironing board. She lives just down the street and was readily available to us if we had any questions. Carmen was ever so helpful and went above and beyond, down to offering us a ride to the airport as she would be headed that way to pick up her sister on the same day as our departure.
I can't say enough about the wonderful experience we had at this lit'l bungalow. We will ABSOLUTELY be keeping in touch with Carmen to stay here again!"

Cozy little cottage in a great safe and quite area!
"My husband and I stayed for 15 days due to me having both feet operated on. This cozy little place was great and very helpful for what I needed after my surgery. The location of this cottage is great, only thing we ever heard was a garbage truck and the occasional motorcycle which in my book is absolutely wonderful- we did not imagine it would be that quite. We spent a lot of time in the cottage due to the need for optimal post-op care, due to the bed and other seating that was not an issues- everything very comfortable. Kate was very sweet, accommodating, and available, as well as very helpful with the area. Kate even provided us with extra pillows so we didn't have buy our own which meant a lot to us for my post-op care! Great places to eat and shop just within blocks making our time out and about very enjoyable. During our stay we never felt unsafe or uncomfortable with all the amenities Kate's little cottage provided. This is our first trip to L.A. to stay and if ever needing to come back we will definitely look in on staying here. We definitely recommend anyone to stay here."
