What Past Guests Are Saying. 12 guest reviews 100% of guests would stay again Overall Rating 5 stars .............Excellent = 12 Very Good = 0 Average = 0 Below Average = 0 Poor = 0 bigeastleighfan1 Hampshire Lovely place to stay Myself, my husband our daughter (15) and three of our friends stayed at Bella Vista for a week following a road trip. Very welcoming hosts, very friendly and helpful. The house is wonderful, it is both homey and luxurious. All six of us enjoyed our stay and I certainly would go back in a heart beat. The pool is large the grounds well cared for, it is very well positioned looking down over the valley as it does whilst not being far away from LA attractions. If you are thinking about renting a holiday home in LA then you will not be dissapointed with this one. More Details ? Kemi A. Boston The best vacation stay ever!! If there was a way to give a thousand stars, I would do so! From the beginning of our stay to the end, the owners were kind and very helpful. The pictures don't do it justice, it was more than I imagined! Each bedroom is cozy and comfortable and the bathrooms were great, especially with so many girls! The outside grill was great for our cook-out and the house gives you a relaxing atmosphere. The owners are super friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of! The house is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, but close to major shopping areas and the highway. It was very conveinent getting from place to place in downtown la. The house is amazing, the owners are the best ever! I couldn't recommend this place more! If you have the chance to stay, book it, you won't regret it, the only problem is that you don't want to leave.

We had such an amazing stay at the Bella Vista. I've been to LA many times and this is definitely the best place I have stayed. Super coxy, clean, good location, and very helpful and easy communication. Incredible view.
Absolutely perfect for our business retreat!!!!!
Could not have been happier with the Bella Vista home and Chris's help during our stay. The property is lovely, great comfy beds, all the supplies we needed to feel right at home, and the most fantastic view of LA.
We were a group of 7 women entrepreneurs here for a business / mastermind retreat, and it was just what we needed (we've already asked to book again this fall)!
Chris was quick to respond to texts and was a very gracious host if we needed anything. Can't wait to return to BV! Thank you Chris for making our trip perfect :)
Great spot for families or couples in Bella Vista.
This is a great house. All of the amenities are great and the view is second to none. It is in great proximity to all areas of interest.
The instructions left by the owner were great. It is a super place to just enjoy being California. It would be great from families with small children and my adult children loved the house. Fully equipped with everything you need in the kitchen and recreational also. The owners made you feel right at home from the beginning and were great communicators. Drive and uber to anywhere from the house. Great spot to cook out and eat outside looking over the valley. Lots of televisions for avid sports fans also.
Luxury home from home
Our family of 4 adults were visiting Los Angeles from England for our son's wedding.From the moment we entered this beautiful home we were delighted with its old style charm and its spaciousness and the fact that the online photos of the property were true to the reality. We felt welcome immediately and felt that the owner valued us as his personal guests and wanted us to feel at home. The gift hamper and welcome note on arrival was much appreciated.The back yard was stunning with its swimming pool, fire pits and terraces overlooking the valley with its twinkly lights and with its chandeliers hanging from the trees. The hot tub another fabulous bit of luxury. This was an extremely comfortable home from home with absolutely everything you could possibly wish for provided such as plentiful linen and towels,bathroom products,cooking utensils and appliances and even access to the family's store cupboards. No need to shop for those kitchen basics that we take for granted. It was clear that this was a well loved and lived in home and immaculate.The bedrooms were spacious (2 of which had balconies overlooking the pool) and the beds extremely comfortable.Much to our son-in-laws delight was the discovery of the gym and games room in the garage.The good wifi facility was essential to us as we wished to be in communication with family and friends and for booking Uber taxis to get around instead of renting a car. Help was always on hand from the owner via text/email if we needed it. This beautiful property was the icing on the cake in making our already happy visit even more joyous and we would not hesitate to recommend it and most certainly hope to return.
Thank you so much for your kind words Maggie! We were honored to host you guys, and I'm so glad you were happy at our home! Thanks for leaving us those gorgeous bouquets of white roses and magnificent pastries! Yum! And for leaving our home in fantastic shape! Of course you guys are welcome back anytime!
Stunning House and Pool with magnificent views!
This is the second time we have rented this wonderful property. The house has everything you could possibly need and is absolutely gorgeous. You can dine inside or outside and the views over Los Angeles are spectacular. The pool is huge and there is also a lovely jacuzzi. The sports court is wonderful for children and adults too! The location couldn't be better, so close to The Getty Center and Rodeo Drive as well as being close to the beaches. We have visited practically every tourist attraction in the area from this house, Trouble is the property is so lovely you just won't want to leave it! The owners could not be more helpful and are so lovely and kind. My son loves the piano! The area is lovely and quiet and private. I adore this house and would stay here whenever I visit California!
Thanks for the review Sharon! We really appreciate that! We've really enjoyed hosting you guys the past couple years....soon this will become an annual holiday tradition! And I'm glad that we were able to track down your son's elephant and get it back to the UK safe and sound ;)
Absolute bliss in the hills!
We were a party of 7, 4 adults & 3 kids and just had the best time there! Upon entering the property we were not disappointed, the house is spectacular with so much space and comfort. The highlight for all of us though was the outdoor entertaining area with a beautiful pool and spa which overlooks the hills of L.A. Personally I liked watching planes landing at a small airport in the distance. The kids loved this place for the pool as well as a basketball ball court with a volleyball net also. The owners provided lots of fun things for the kids including balls and rackets and arm bands for the pool. When we were home for dinner we used the outdoor bbq each night, enjoying a cold beer and the views whilst we cooked our food. The garden also has beautiful lights dotted around the place which looked spectacular at night.
Inside the property we were left everything you would need to enjoy a relaxing stay, plenty of utilities in the kitchen including ground coffee for our stay as well as a welcome bottle of wine. Pretty much every room had a tv with Netflix which we enjoyed. The bedrooms were very well sized and comfortable. The lay out worked for us, there is 3 bedrooms upstairs, the master had a large change room and bathroom and the other 2 rooms shared another bathroom.Then there is another bedroom downstairs which my 6 year old loved with her own bathroom also.As for location we loved it as we had hired a car for our duration and the owner very thoughtfully left us two folders which was filled with useful information on places to see and shopping stores, food outlets etc as well as maps to popular locations. You are within 5 minutes of the fwy's ( I think it was the 405? ) which is very convenient after a full day out, turning off the freeway knowing you were very close to home! We often came off the fwy 1 stop after as there are supermarkets for shopping etc.The whole time we were there we didn't hear any noise of any sort, it was very peaceful.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone and it is big enough to share as a group.
We all felt blessed to have stayed in such a beautiful house.
All the best, Matt C.
