About Lloyd Kurtz

Lloyd Kurtz has lived in this house since 1998. He is a licensed contractor and enjoys gardening, traveling, photography and telling jokes (sometimes some really good ones!).

Lloyd Kurtz purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Lloyd Kurtz chose Studio City

This property is a 1920's Tudor style home. Legend has it that the house was built by Mr. Lankershim himself, of whom Lankershim Blvd was named after. Lankershim helped to develop the San Fernando Valley in the 1920's and 30's. The movie Chinatown with Jack Nicholsen basically portrays Lankershim's story,

What makes this apartment unique

What make this such a great neighborhood is the proximity to all of the fabulous shopping and dining that Ventura Blvd is famous for. It is quiet and safe as well as being a fabulous walking area with panoramic views; there is a reason the stars live around here.

Lloyd was the perfect host! The studio was comfy, cozy and centrally located to everything. Lloyd brought us oranges from a tree on his property and chocolates— a sweet surprise! Hope to stay here again soon!

Perfect location and beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I recently stayed for 5 nights and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Lloyd was extremely helpful, and was accessible if we needed him for anything. The apartment was IMPECCABLY clean! I was very impressed with both this property and the experience with VRBO. We will absolutely be staying in this property again in the future.
