Perfect for a couple but can sleep more if another area is opened.
About Georgia Durante
Hi!! My name is Georgia Durante. I am a Stunt Driver and the author of 'The Company She Keeps' (my autobiography) which has recently been optioned for a movie. I purchased my property in 1983 and it has been an ongoing labor of love every since. Over the years I have put in over a million dollars, creating a magical paradise. The original size of the home was 2800 sq.ft. It is now 5000 sq. ft. I am 62 years old and I have adopted a baby girl in 2006. I have elected to stay at home and be a mom. Renting my property is a way of making an income which allows me to be at home rather than on location. I have built a play house and tree house on the property (inspired by my daughter) which is a real plus for renter's with young children. The play house is a mini version of the main house with a river rock exterior, bay windows, skylights, custom made child size leather couch, bunk beds, cable TV, phone line, fireplace and camera system to monitor the children from inside the house. It has it's own patio with a child size umbrella table. It truly is a child's wonderland. People come here as strangers and leave as friends. I live on the property, but your privacy is respected. I am available 24hours a day to help to make your stay an enjoyable adventure.

Why Georgia Durante chose Valley Village
This property is centrally located to many attractions in the Los Angeles area. Just blocks from the 101 and 405 freeways. I love the quiet of the cul de sac street and the LA River behind the property is a great buffer for any street noise. It's in the middle of all that LA has to offer, yet you feel like your on your own private Island. People come just to relax around the pool and jacuzzi with 3 waterfalls, or have business meetings around the fire pit or gazebo bar. It's a serene tropical atmosphere. It's romantic for couples and a disneyland for kids. It has it all!
What makes this House unique
In this cozy magical creation, I enjoy having friends over to cook out and sit around the fire pit with a glass of wine when I don't have guest. The jacuzzi usually gets utilized before the night is over. The entire back yard is lit with lights in all the trees and the pool lights change colors every few minutes. It's eye candy for all my guest. It feels like a fairyland. I am a writer. I can not ask for a better environment to write. It's so peaceful here. No need to ever go out. It's all right here. You'll find it difficult to leave the property to go sightseeing. If you book a week or longer, I give you an autographed book and a few other goodie when you leave.

Great Place, Great Host (Georgia)
I don't leave reviews on most places, so when I do it's really good or really bad. My wife & I stayed there 4 days. We had the most awesome time, the back yard area is unbelievable, especially the Jacuzzi at night with the waterfall. It makes you feel 20 years younger when you go in it. The name Enchanted Manor describes this place well. I thought my home was nice until I stayed there. Georgia spent many years making it like it is. She also is great host and a very gracious woman. If your lucky enough to have her tell you her life story it will amaze you. She has a saying "come as strangers, leave as friends". That is so true. We will be coming back soon. Also it is centrally located to many of the major attractions in LA. Thank you Georgia for a wonderful time!!! Phil & Debbie.
Another special couple. I am so blessed with the people who come here as strangers and leave as "friends"
Excellent Place to stay
My family loved staying here. It was close to all the touristy things we wanted to do, we liked being in a house instead of a hotel. The outdoor area is amazing and so relaxing after a long day of touring. My kids loved the secret room, pool, hot tub and fire pit!
I meet such nice people renting my home. They become like family and it’s always sad when they have to leave. Because people were the most respectful sweet and fun people to be around. The kids were so well behaved. Loved having them here.
BEST WEDDING EVER!!
The enchanted manner was not only enchantedly BEAUTIFUL, but Georgia the owner was absolutely AMAZING!! She was more than accommodating and helpful throughout everything, and helped The Bride during a disaster on the actual wedding day!!! Georgia has been nothing but amazing, sweet, helpful and, plain and simply PERFECT! She made OUR WEDDDING DAY ENCHANTED!!!
Thank you Georgia we love you!!!
Thank you Darlene and DannY it’s always my pleasure to make your day special. As you are very special people.
I surprised my family with The Enchanted Manor for our family vacation. I called it only “the magic of Hollywood” place and they teased me thinking I was just trying to build it up. When we arrived, their reactions were priceless! They knew instantly what I meant by magical!! Every detail is cared for! I have trouble putting into words just how extraordinary the whole place is! We made the best family memories, slept so comfortably and enjoyed meeting and spending time with Georgia, who is just an amazing woman! We all wholeheartedly recommend The Enchanted Manor for any event or stay —it can meet all needs and is the best vacation find we ever found even as very frequent travelers!!! Thank you, Georgia! Can’t wait to make it back again!!�
