About owner/manager

Fully emancipated... children grown and on their own. So, I travel extensively professionally and personally. CEO of a US energy services firm. Over 60, act like I'm 30 and having a great time.

owner/manager purchased this house in 1980

Why owner/manager chose Los Angeles

THIS IS A BIG HOUSE.. BUT IT IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE.. NO SHOWERS, GRADUATIONS, OPEN HOUSES, FILMING, ETC. ALLOWED.

This property is for families. It is really a great -- ethnically diverse neighborhood- and very close to most places you want to visit. I chose this neighborhood because the homes were large, sturdy, nice fearture, and were reminded me of my NY home. .. and not typical LA ranch style house.

What makes this house unique

I love the house because it offers a lot of living spaces, each with different personalities

Minnesotan's in LA

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time during our stay in Los Angeles. The house was clean and the description was fairly accurate to the website. Ronald was wonderful with everything. It was very reassuring having someone on site that can answer question regarding the area. It was centrally located to all of the attractions/sites we visited. Even with traffic we were only about a 1/2 hour away to almost everything.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your house while we toured the Los Angeles area!

Beautiful Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect location close to the USC campus as we were attending all the graduation events and commencement. It was easy to find and near to many attractions. The home was large enough for five individuals and allowed us to each have our own space. An added bonus was the backyard which included a fish pond, fountain, a lemon tree, and several sitting areas. Although we did not meet Denise, she was a very gracious host allowing us to add an extra night to our reservation. Ron gave us a tour of the home when we arrived and was always available when we had questions. We enjoyed staying at this home and would recommend it to others who need a roomy place close to USC.

The city Los Angeles and the West Adams Home combined for a truly wonderful vacation. From the time we arrived Ron made sure that everything was perfect. He was a pure delight and the home was beautifully maintained. The neighborhood only added to its charm. I would highly recommend this property. My family and I look forward to our next stay in Los Angeles. Thank Denise and Ron.

Definitely A Go!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented many times through VRBO, but this was our first rental in central Los Angeles. It's a winner, especially if you appreciate historical charm in a gorgeous, historical neighborhood. The modern amenities are in place for comfort and convenience but do not disrupt the historical ambiance. The relatively private outdoor space on the upper deck and in the backyard in the middle of town is perfect.

I was in the area for five days attending an event at USC and the property location provided a quick drive to there as well as to downtown, Hollywood, Silver Lake, etc.

If I ever have a need for a central L.A. rental in the future, I will start here. The owner, Denise, is very communicative and her property manager, Ronald, provides an introduction to the property leaving very few questions as well as being on call at all times.

Go for it!

The house is in a ethnically diverse, urban and historic neighborhood near downtown LA, the convention center and USC. It is centrally located to major tourist attractions..West LA, Beverly HIlls, the Beaches, Hollywood, etc. and is two blocks from the freeway.

HOWEVER, IF YOU WANT TO WALK TO BARS, COFFEE SHOPS, RESTAURANTS AND FIT INTO THE LA ACTIVE LIFE, THIS IS NOT THAT PLACE. This is a residential area and you have to drive.. although not far.. to get access to basic services. Younger folks might prefer Hollywood or other more active neighborhoods.

At the same time, this is not the "suburbs', so you must expect urban amenities.

West Adams is a subdivision developed around 1890-1900. Large, charming houses and lots of history.

Details on the neighborhood and nearby tourist attractions will be provided when you book and a detailed house manual awaits you in the home.
