Charming and comfortable country home in the middle of the city. We are near many major studios and only 1 mile away from the Universal Studios Tour. There are 3 designer bedrooms, one is a large sleeping loft in an artist studio. French doors open onto a pool area, sprinkled with comfortable seating areas and lounge furniture. Our place is as comfortable as possible inside and out and easily enjoyed by a large family or couple. Located in the middle of a very safe and upscale neighborhood.

CHARMING AND VERY COMFORTABLE DESIGNER 3 BEDROOM HOME WITH PRIVATE POOL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CITY. We are near many major studios and only 1 mile away from the Universal Studios Tour. There is no doubt that this is the best value in the Toluca Lake, Studio City, Universal City and Hollywood area. This large home is in ONE OF THE BEST NEIGHBORHOODS IN TOLUCA LAKE/STUDIO CITY/HOLLYWOOD AREA and is located in the center of EVERYTHING. Tons of Los Angeles and Hollywood attractions are just minutes away and for families visiting The Universal Studios Tour, this house is perfectly situated. Its a quiet and private property, also ideal for business people coming into LA for short term projects. Close to Dreamworks, Disney Studios, Warner Bros., Universal, and CBS Radford and its an easy commute to Paramount Studios, ABC Prospect Studios, Raleigh Studios, Sunset Gower Studios, KTLA and Hollywood Center Studios. THE HOUSE: The house has 3 designer bedrooms with lots of brand new and updated furniture, new beds and linens, updated bathrooms and fully serviceable, updated charming, country kitchen with a Viking cooktop, new dishwasher, single bowl country sink and faucet, and refrigerator with water dispenser and ice maker. Its an Entertainers Dream; the den and artist studio have french doors that open out onto the pool area. Very Comfortable dining room area with new, expandable table with seating for 6 and possibly 8 or 10 for larger gatherings. Quaint den includes a fireplace, flat screen smart 4K HDTV, and more. Master Bath has been completely redone in the country style of the rest of the house, featuring a fun, 2 person 'utility' sink and frameless, aquarium glass shower. The entire house has rich hardwood parquet flooring. Adjacent to the kitchen is a laundry room with washer and dryer for your convenience. STAIRS: There is only one set of stairs leading up to the sleeping loft (a favorite for teens creating a little distance from the rest of the family) in the studio. The rest of the house is on ground level, including 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, living room, dining area, and den. POOL AREA: The pool is really the 'year round' center of attention. Its a large, refreshing rectangular pool, perfect for a swim after a day on one of the studio tours or blasting through Hollywood. The new deck is fabulous as well with comfortable upholstered outdoor chairs to enjoy your favorite book and cocktail while keeping an eye on the rest of the family. There is plenty of parking - feel free to park in the driveway or street parking is always available. You will have full access to the house and all of the appliances.

Typically myself and/or my co-host will meet with you during the check in process. You will have access to my co-host for any issues or questions that might arise.


The neighborhood is populated with people that work in the motion picture industry as many large studios are located within a few minute drive. There are innumerable fabulous restaurants and entertainment options within a small radius. Its also a quick drive to get into Hollywood.

Why Chet Maxwell chose Toluca Woods

This is an amazing, very private, very comfortable house in the middle of the city. Its close to the studios and Hollywood attractions.

The pool provides a wonderful area to hang out and refresh yourselves after a long day of touring the surrounding sights.

A short drive gets you to fabulous restaurants and of course Universal Studios Tour.

Wonderful stay, beautiful house with pool!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house! Chet was very accommodating. He even left snacks for us to enjoy. He and his host were very responsive with any communications that we had. The pool was a special treat in the hot weather as well. The location is very convenient to Universal, Griffith Observatory, Hollywood area, and the Burbank airport, all within a 30 minute drive or less. I highly recommend this house for a stay with family or friends!

Perfect vacation place!

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 of us staying there and we had more than enough room. The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen are all a good size and the place is decorated beautifully. The backyard is where we spent most of our time, though. The pool and jacuzzi are awesome, the patio furniture is super comfortable and we liked how private it was because of the fences and all the trees. The hosts were awesome, too. They had wine, muffins and other treats ready for us at the house (which isn’t typical), but a great touch! There were extra beach towels, laundry detergent, coffee and creamer, guides of what to do in the area and all kinds of little touches you wouldn’t expect that made the experience even better. The location is in a nice neighborhood and was a short drive from most of the tourist spots we visited. We had a wonderful time and I highly recommend this home to everyone!

Highly recommended...

  • 4 of 5

This property is lovely and spacious. Does not look spacious from the outside, but once inside, there's plenty of space. The bathrooms are large and the loft is awesome. The pool and yard are a great size, too. Chet and his wife were very responsive to any questions we had when booking. We also had a question during our stay, and they responded within minutes.

We had a fabulous time and would definitely come back.
