About Camilla More

I have lived in this house for 24 years and absolutely love it! It has charm and is light and bright and happy. My boyfriend and I love to entertain and so the house has a free flow to it where the inside and outside become one. We travel during the summer so we decided to offer it to others to stay in. I love to design and believe that the charm of this house is the simplicity , the bright colors throughout and the gorgeous pool and gardens with barbeque and lots of entertainment areas, offer guests the perfect retreat, just minutes from the exciting hustle and bustle of the restaurants on Ventura Boulevard.

Camilla More purchased this house in 1986

Why Camilla More chose Los Angeles County

Studio City has become the 'Beverly Hills' of the valley! The shopping on Ventura Boulevard is outstanding - and there is a wonderful Farmers Market every Sunday where there are pony rides and a petting zoo for children. Studio City is conveniently close to the major Studios - Universal, Warner Brothers, CBS - and also an easy drive to the beaches, Six Flags magic Mountain and Disneyland. Hollywood , the Griffith Park Observatory, LACMA etcetc are 20 mins drive. In Studio City you are in a peaceful family community that is buzzing but not frenetic!

What makes this house unique

Once you have arrived at this house you will not feel like leaving! The view over the valley and surrounding mountains from the front deck is awe- inspiring. The feeling of tranquility and relaxation will overcome you as you lie by the pool or dine al fresco at night under the bamboo awning. You are on top of a knoll so there is no one looking in on you. Completely private.

Breathtaking Views, Beautiful Home, Quintessential California Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (2 adults, 3 kids aged 12.5, 7 and 3.5 years) thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in this lovely HOME. It is just that - a real home that is gorgeous in its location, cozy feel, landscaping and decor.

Camilla was a pleasure to deal with from the start of the rental process six months prior to our stay. Her home is perfectly appointed with absolutely everything we needed to enjoy our stay, including a very helpful collection of area attraction listings.

The View: You know when you climb the 30+ steps to the house, that there is something magical waiting at the top. We literally pinched ourselves every time we looked out each of the many windows - all of LA seems to be sprawled out in the view!

The drive up the the streets off Ventura Blvd. is so cool - we lived like locals while we were there. We were guaranteed a parking spot right in front of the house which was so convenient, and we always felt secure with the gated entry.

Kitchen, all three bedrooms and three bathrooms had everything we needed and more. The pool: gorgeous and the sun shone on it from 7am to well past 6pm! The outdoor area was cozy and perfect to lounge around the pool. Nights on the front porch watching the twinkling city lights were right out of a movie.

The area: Studio City - so much beauty to take in everywhere! It feels like a sweet town but is so close to surrounding hot spots too. Great shopping on Ventura Blvd, and an amazing Sunday Farmers' Market minutes away!

Such a fantastic week - we are counting the days til we can return. Thank you Camilla for your help and hospitality!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Camilla and Cameron are very attentive and pleasant hosts. We had an excellent stay. There were a couple of small issues but they were handled with lightning speed and didn't influence our stay in a negative way.

The house itself is perfect and very welcoming. The kitchen is complete, plenty towels, good washing machine and dryer. As a bonus hummingbirds were circling the house which provided unique photo opportunities. We'd love to return to this splendid house.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear of the enjoyed stays at our house! Hummingbirds and a family of doves living in the olive trees bring a constant source of joy and peace to the garden. If there are ever any issues or questions regarding the house, we respond immediately, because we understand the word "service" and want our guests to feel thoroughly looked after. We also respect our guests privacy, and only make contact when invited to do so.

Perfect California Retreat

  • 5 of 5

For the first time, we packed up our family of 6 and headed to California for a family reunion. After spending 2 days with family, we sought a unique home with a pool that we knew our 4 daughters would enjoy. Once I spotted the white walls, white couches and gorgeous outdoor amenities on VRBO...I knew this was the place not only for our family...but for ME!

Upon arrival, we walked into the most gorgeous and CLEAN home we could have selected. I was immediately drawn to the variety of artwork on the wall as I am an artist and art teacher. Each room was uniquely decorated and towels awaited us on our beds. I immediately texted Camilla to let her know how beautiful her home was. (based on pics I sent my family of the home, they said it reminded them of my own home in Ohio! *minus the pool) I told my family that I thought Camilla and I would be fast friends if I lived in California!

The evening there is quiet and breathtaking. In the front of the house you can see the city lights and in the back yard, the trees are lit with twinkle lights and paper lanterns. It is a sacred space that provided much needed relaxation. (both day and night)

Not only was I impressed with the home, the yard, the layout and the decor...I was most impressed by how clean it was. Everything...the floors, windows, bathrooms, sheets, bedding, sofas, etc. etc. SPOTLESS!

Whenever we return to California - even if it is just my husband and I - this will definitely be the place I return to. We just returned home late last night and I feel emotional looking at these pictures again....WANT TO GO BACK!!!

Thank you Camilla & Cameron for such a great week. Your hospitality & your communication were so greatly appreciated.

xoxo

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this marvelous review! Cam and I take great pride in providing a great place for the many families who stay in our house. In particular you note the cleanliness of the house, and I really appreciate you mentioning this. Marta and her team are the most amazing cleaners, and she understands that a fine hotel standard is required at my house. I constantly replace towels and sheets as they age, so that our guests feel thoroughly looked after! Please come back soon!Camilla

Private hilltop getaway. Just fantastic.

Outstanding view. Lush greenery. Lots of natural light and most of all quiet. We'd rent this home again in a heartbeat.

Amazing Home- Spacious, Great Location, Amazing Views, Heated Pool, Spotless

  • 5 of 5

We were in town visiting friends of ours in Studio City and also touring some L.A. attractions for 4 days. The house is wonderfully located to get to many areas of L.A. and the views are absolutely amazing. The house itself is well appointed, clean and beautifully decorated. Once we arrived, Camilla and Cameron had left bottled water, a bottle of wine and a binder with directions and tips about the house and local surroundings- this was quite helpful. To get to the house from the street it does require a stair climb but the view is worth it and never gets old. Walking up to the house everyone in our party noted the delightful scents from all the flowers and plants. The home is well maintained and had every amenity for our family. There is a Trader Joe's literally a few minutes away and each night we tried new restaurants off Ventura Blvd. Every afternoon we were glad to be back and enjoy the heated pool and relax. The neighborhood has an upscale vibe and is quiet and safe. Camilla was easy to communicate with before and after our trip. Our party included two couples, a toddler and a senior. There is a pack n play and pool fence available. Since our friends live in Studio City we will definitely be back.

Perfect LA Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 were thrilled to stay in this beautiful house. Spectacular views, beautifully decorated, fully equipped, very clean (and I'm very particular about that) and spacious. The outside, with comfortable seating and umbrellas next to the pool, was like having another living area. The location was great, not too far from any of the big LA attractions and very quiet and pretty neighborhood. The owners were very nice and had fresh flowers and a bottle of wine waiting for us upon our arrival. They also had the pool heated for us (small fee) when we arrived so our girls were able to jump right in. We highly recommend this house and look forward to staying here again.
