2-month stay

  • 4 of 5

The house provides a very pleasant stay with a fine pool, a great location near restaurants, coffee, etc. in North Hollywood, as well as a quick drive to Burbank and easy access to the freeway. Decor has personality and provides ample space, and kitchen is updated except for an older but classic oven/range that works well. Bedrooms have plenty of closet space and are good sized with comfortable beds. Weekly cleaning is good for controlling mess and dust, and pool is regularly cleaned also. Landlord is easy to contact and replies very quickly and responsibly took care of every minor problem (one day the pool needed chemicals; it was rectified the next day) except for a broken sliding door, which in his defense was very tricky to fix because it was vintage I think but it would have been nice to have had it fixed. Bedrooms were very comfortable, and bathrooms were fine. Laundry appliances worked well and got the job done, and we washed very often without problem. Towels, dishes, pots, etc. were in good condition and there were tons of towels, which was great for using the pool daily. Landlord has recently updated cable/internet so that now TV has all the cable channels and internet is very fast, which is an advantage from the slower internet I had for the first month. That improvement is a great addition. Extra rooms upstairs get a bit hot but provide nice areas for kids or extra people. Neighborhood felt perfectly safe to me and was quiet at night. Logistics with the landlord were dealt with easily and with no problems and he was very accommodating and available for our stay. A car is a must for this neighborhood, and the driveway is gated and there is plenty of security for the house. Burbank Airport planes do fly overhead but not very often and the noise didn't bother us during our stay (flights did not go much past 9 pm I think). All in all a great house in a great location, with only a few minor hiccups, that are probably now rectified and would make a stay even better.

Perfect Spot in Los Angeles <Quite>

  • 5 of 5

Richard was awesome, he was full of local information on things to do and see and the place was very relaxing and quite unlike some neighborhoods in LA. The house had everything we needed plus the pool as well a great location to getting to any where relatively quick.We plan on staying here again soon for business or quite retreat.

Great place for families

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in this house was very relaxing and enjoyable. The house has cabin characteristics with all the accomodations of a house. Plenty of room for my family of 8. I would highly recommend this home for large families looking for a place to relax after sightseeing. Plenty of beds and sitting space to accomodate a large families and the pool and hot tub are a plus. Not recommended for anyone looking for a place to have big gatherings or parties as there are restrictions on noise and pool/hot hours.

I would definetly consider renting this place again for our next trip to LA.

Kee Family

  • 5 of 5

This place was great for our family. It was certainly as advertised. Richard met us there the night of our check in(even though we did not arrive until after 9pm) and showed us everything we needed to know. The central location was perfect as we were just minutes from Universal Studios and Hollywood. We also made the short commute to Dodger Stadium and Santa Monica Beach. Richard was very helpful and prompt with the few minor issues that popped up. The house is cozy, but there was plenty of space(and beds) for our family of eight. The adult couples enjoyed the two separate bedrooms(one of which has a separate entrance to the outdoor hot tub), while our teenage daughters thought the 2 lofts upstairs were pretty neat. The home is in a neighborhood, but the backyard has a secluded feel. While the kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub the adults could sit out on the deck. We would highly recommend this place for families who are looking for a comfortable vacation home. We have stayed in many VRBO locations and this one was ranks as one of our better experiences.

Tygh Valley, OR


  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in probably 50 VRBO's and this was one of the very best VRBO experiences we have ever had. This is a warm and inviting home filled with eclectic art and design; lovely and comfortable furniture and the very best property owner we have ever done business with. Richard ensured in every way that our stay was as comfortable and memorable as possible. Every time I'd throw a clink in our planning, he responded with "No worries,,," We loved spreading out in this clean and well-maintained home. Teenager texting in her bedroom; young grandson building puzzles on one of the many tables; hubby playing guitar on the patio; me reading and taking naps in a multitude of choices. This is a very quiet neighborhood and with the automatic gate, we felt completely safe in the "big city". All of this with a pool and hot tub, too! Wow. Pinch us... This was a restful, relaxing place to spend a vacation. And here we thought we came to see Legoland, Disneyland, beach and Hollywood! :-)

Friendly and Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

I really can't think of enough nice things to say about Richard's property. We had seven people in our party (2 teens, 3 kids, and 2 adults) and we all had a great time. The home is very cozy and slept all of us nicely. Beds were comfy, rooms were cozy and the pool and Spa were relaxing. And to top it all off, Richard is a great person;he is someone that I would definatley have as a friend. Our vacation started off sort of like the "Griswolds", we were very worried about sending so much money to someone we had never met and constantly emailed Richard with our concerns and questions to validate the rental. Without hesitation, Richard always replied promptly and eased our worries. Then on the vacation we locked ourselves out of the rental and once again, with no hiccups, Richard ensured we were taken care of. He is a respectful and easy to work with gentleman. Do not let the first impression get to you as you pull up. At first sight, we thought it was going to be small and cramped, once inside though, it was great. The charm is very fascinating also as there are many pieces from the past that add to the charm. There were several things there for us already such as kitchenware, bbq grill, a few spices, coffee pot, ecspresso machine and some dry goods. I would highly recommend getting settled before going shopping. People in the neighborhood were also very pleasant as I would head out early in the morning a few times, I received many "good mornings" and "how are you". I would highly recommend this rental and based on the expierence with Richard, any of his properties (even though I have never stayed at them).
