About Ravi

Software engg

Ravi purchased this house in 2015

Why Ravi chose Los Angeles

This property is just far enough from downtown to have a bit of a rural feel and yet, downtown is only 20 minutes away. I have much more space. I can see the stars at night from my hot tub. My favorite attraction, Disneyland is just a short 40 minutes away. Universal studios and six flags, my other two favorite attractions, are only 10 minutes away. I like being close to town but out of the traffic jams, smog, and hustle of the city.

What makes this house unique

I had nine main criteria that the house must have. 1) one level ranch style, I don't like stairs; 2) close to downtown: 3) large lot: 4) swimming pool and hot tub; 5) Shade trees; 6) No carpet, I have allergies and carpet holds a lot of dirt an allergens; 7) lots of parking, I hate to pay for parking; 8) Secluded and quiet area: and finally 9) Close to all my favorite attractions. I did not think I would ever find one that met all my criteria............

I finally found the house that met all my criteria in 2009 and bought it immediately. I have never regretted it. Great neighborhood, Great neighbors, Dead end street so no traffic. Secluded and quiet. Huge, double sized lot. If you like my criteria, you will love my house.

A perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house is worthy of the rent you pay.the locality was very peaceful and is close to costco and many other stores in case you need to buy anything.the backyard is what will score the most on this property.the pool, hot water tub and the play area for the kids stand out.if u are looking for a vacation house in a quiet place and still close to other attractions, this is the one.Before you buy any kitchen stuff for the stay, better take a look at the stuff in the house first as almost everything is present in the kitchen.the house is well maintained and well equipped to support a crowd as big as 15 people.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this vacation property with some family members for a wedding that was taking place in the LA area. We had six adults staying at the home including myself, my wife, my brother, his wife, and my parents. My wife and I have three children under the age of three (including a 6 month old), and my brother and his wife have a 7 month old. This house ended up being a perfect spot for us. The bedrooms were comfortable, and there was plenty of space for privacy when needed. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need for cooking and serving, and the indoor dining spaces were perfect for our family. The two full bathrooms were clean, updated, and there were plenty of towels for everyone. The house doesn't have any bathtubs, but they did have a baby tub that we could put into the shower area when needed. This was perfect for us. They even had two pack and plays (cribs) that we used. The washer and dryer were up to date as well. The absolute best part about this house was the backyard, though. Whether you wanted shade, sun, pool, comfortable places to eat, a place to play, or multiple areas to watch TV (which we didn't, but could've) it was all there. The water slide and pool were my favorite parts of the yard for sure. As for parking, the driveway was huge. We had a large Sienna minivan, a Jeep Liberty, and a Ford Expedition EL parked in the driveway at the same time with plenty of space for another vehicle. This house is also located within 5 minutes drive to multiple grocery stores and a drive-thru Starbucks. We LOVED our stay, and if we are ever looking to stay in the LA area, we would definitely rent the house again. Thanks Edith and Ravi!

Highly satisfied

  • 5 of 5

This San Fernando property was perfect for our party of 13 (6 adults, 7 children). The property was located in a quiet neighborhood that was only around 30-45 minutes from LA attractions. Everyone in our party was able to sleep in a bed and not on the floor. The patio, which included a swimming pool, a jacuzzi, and a play area, was nice to have especially when our family wanted to wind down. The house was fully equipped with everything. All that we had to buy was food that we chose to cook. Again, my family and I were highly pleased with this particular property. We truly received our money's worth.

Love the backyard.

  • 4 of 5

We originally got the property because it wasn't too far from Universal Studio, Hollywood Blvd. and Santa Monica Pier. After our stay, the best thing about the property was the back yard. It was like having our own private resort. We spent majority of our time there--BBQ, swim and relax in the hot tub. I would recommend this place to my friends and families, and would love to stay here again in the future.

What a way to enjoy Southern California!

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed at this property while we were in California for our son's wedding. We filled each room and several couches and enjoyed a wonderful Southern California experience with great weather, fun time in the pool and hot tub, early morning coffee under the pergola, lunch in the gazebo and grill time for supper. We had everything we needed and made many happy memories.

Ravi and Edith were readily available when we had questions and were a pleasure to work with. We only wish that they could have made our time go more slowly!

Nice & Enjoyable stay

My group enjoyed our stay here. A few minor things that had to be worked on while we stayed, but it was worked on and they kept us updated. We would go back

Other Attractions & Activities:

Below is a link to a custom Google Map that shows over 80 of the most popular attraction near my home. Use it as you decide which property best suits you needs for this trip.

Click on the below link or cut and paste it into you address bar to see many of the local attractions.

Listed are over 80 of the top attractions near the home. The neat thing is you can click on any one of them and then my home and it will give you exact distance and directions to that attraction and the home.


You can also do a quick search for a specific attraction or activity you are looking for. For example if you want to visit Walt Disney Studios put “Walt Disney Studios” in the google map search line it will search for Walt Disney Studios and give you exact directions from the this vacation house to the studios i.e. 16.8 miles and it will take you 20 minutes to get there. You can find any activity or specific location this way. How great is that!
