Great House, Great Location, Great Owner!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the property with our dog for a week in February. The owner Richard was very quick to respond to any questions or information we needed prior to actual booking the property. There were no issues at the house during our stay, in fact, the property grounds are very well-kept with beautiful foliage and flowers everywhere. The house is entirely fenced in with a white-picket fence and security cameras, so we felt very secure. Our dog was free to roam the yard with all the fencing.

The location was great! A five minute drive to Universal, great shopping and eating establishments!

We were very pleased with our stay and with the Property Owner. I would surely recommend this house as a rental for your stay!!

Old-fashioned charm in a changing neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our multi-generation family to use as a home base while visiting Universal Studios and beaches. The house had lots of interesting antique features, a comfortable living room and large kitchen and dining area. The beds were also very comfortable. Our little dog was happy there, too, and the front and back yards were great for the dog and grandchildren. The separate small unit was a nice to have as a quiet nap area and an extra bathroom for our group. There was a lot of construction going on across the street, and the freeway is fairly close by, but the house is well-insulated and there is a high hedge in the front yard, so we were not bothered by noise. It was great to have three free parking spots, too. The hot tub was not working, but the weather was very warm, so we did not miss it. I would definitely recommend this home for a family group visiting Universal Studios, as the location is very convenient. Richard is a very responsive and helpful host. This home worked well for all three generations of our family staying here together.

Great Location & Awesome Owner

  • 4 of 5

Richard was so accommodating and helpful. His home is awesome!! It's unique and has character. The only reason I didn't give the full 5 stars is the hot tub wasn't in a usable condition at the time. Other than that, I highly recommend this home!!

Will be staying here again next time in Los Angeles. Richard will be around to help and easily accessible to various restaurants in walking distance and not too far away from the city. Few dollars in a taxi. Highly recommend this home.

Great location, beautiful yard for the kids, nicely furnished

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family vacation, with two small families and Grandma. The kids loved playing in the front and back yards. We were able to cook and eat dinner together every night in the cute kitchen and large dining room. There are three bedrooms, two with queen beds and one with two twins. We managed just fine with one bathroom. The hot tub was definitely a plus! The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. My only suggestion for improvement would be to add more spoons (we could only find 2 or 3), and maybe some measuring cups and spoons. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Great location. We didn't spend much time in the house except to sleep but it had everything we needed and was clean. The owner, Richard, was very accommodating.
