About Gary or Jill Tubbs

After having lived in many nice areas of Los Angeles, we discovered Los Feliz in 2000 fell madly in love, and decided to settle down. We bought this home because of the prime location, and because it was our favorite building on the street. We love living under the magnificent 4,000 acre Griffith Park with its two 18 hole and one 9 hole golf courses, being within minutes from the many culturally diverse restaurants, numerous freeways, the subway and thus ALL of greater Los Angeles. We love walking in the quiet, surrounding neighborhoods where the filmmakers from the '20's built their homes and studios, the air fragrant with orange blossoms and jasmine. Just down the street are Walt Disney's first offices and Charlie Chaplin's theater, still operating as The Vista. Barnsdall Park, with its Frank Lloyd Wright home is a ten minute walk south and on Wednesday's we picnic on the hill after picking up quesadillas and fresh avocados at the Farmer's Market in the parking lot below. Weekly, we walk 'the stairs' that wind through homes in the hills north of us, up to Griffith Observatory. Some evenings we walk down the block to Skylight Books to hear an author read from their newly published book, or catch the latest movie at the Los Feliz 3. This is truly a dream neighborhood to live in, whether it's for ten years or ten days.

Some members of our household speak fluent Mandarin Chinese, Castilian Spanish, and central Texan, should you need translators.

Why Gary or Jill Tubbs chose Central LA

One reason we love this location is that we can leave our car parked and walk to so many activities. We leave for the movies 5 minutes before the movie starts and don't miss the previews or credits. We can walk to 10 or 15 restaurants within as little as 2 minutes of home in a well lighted friendly neighborhood. It is not unusual to have filming activity and celebrity sightings in the neighborhood.

We loved the charming details of the property, the many windows, the coved ceilings, the crown molding, the ancient fig tree and grape vine in the backyard, the HISTORY of the place and the area. And the ability to all live as a family under one roof, to raise a family in a beautiful home and a friendly neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

In an attempt to make your stay as carefree as possible, there is no need for keys. The keyless entry will be set to a 4 digit code of your choosing.

We are here next door to assist as little or as much as is needed to make your stay as pleasent and stress free as possible. Need the quickest way anywhere, let us help. Need a recommendation for dinner, we can help.

Perfect vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

Jill and Gary Tubbs have done everything possible to make their property a home for travelers. It is well equipped, clean, and extremely comfortable with a back yard/patio that makes you forget you're in a city. It's within walking distance of many restaurants and shops in a residential area of a busy street. The best part of our stay was the warmth and welcome of the Tubbs family. We don't want to stay anywhere else when we visit our family in the area.

Great place, location, and owners!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spot for a visit to one of the nicest neighborhoods we've been to in LA. The house is spacious, comfortable, and charming. Great to have the owners next door just in case a question arises. They are wonderful people who are dedicated to making sure your stay is a good one.

Gorgeous property

  • 5 of 5

This is my favorite VRBO rental of all time! The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. My two kids had a great time. They loved the toys and we all enjoyed the beautiful back yard. Jill and Gary were very accommodating, providing a pack and play and a high chair.

Great location with lots to walk to. Jill and Gary are lovely people. I highly recommend this property!

Beautiful condo in the heart of Los Feliz

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Jill and Gary when we arrived and the condo was so welcoming with all the lights dimmed. There were slippers and robes for our use. The place looks just like the pictures...better when you're there in person. The decorating is so nice, very comfortable beds and kitchen stocked with whatever you need. There are a couple of spots out back, one under a grape arbor, perfect to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. We were there for our granddaughter's wedding and so nice to have Jill or Gary give us some information on getting around. A big shout out for a driver they use, Chris O"Brocto.....to and from LAX...a great guy. Had time to do some visiting with Jill and Gary and meet their daughter, son in law and grandkids....all lovely people. Would certainly go back and stay with them again!!!

Not a better place to stay

  • 5 of 5

AWESOME I really hate saying that because now it may all be booked up when I want to come back. Jill and Gary are great got us tickets and sat with their family at the Hollywood Bowl. Located near Griffith Park really easy to get to things once you have your bearings and the subway is walking distance took it to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I am from D.C. and their Metro is a piece of cake to get a fare and ride compared to ours. Their home has everything you need wash and dryer (they even provide the washing machine detergent) Walking distance to burritos sushi and a great little Sunday farmers' market you may not eat in at all with what they have to offer. If you do eat in there is a Vons supermarket just down the street. Plenty of soft towels, great water pressure. Bedrooms are big and comfortable with central ac but in August even then we hardly used it. They only have street parking never had a problem finding a space, but if you have a rental car and you are a bit worried about other cars get the rental insurance for piece of mind you will pay more then that to park in a hotel garage each nite. Treat Jill and Gary right I want them to keep renting their place so I can come back. They have great ideas on things to do just ask them! you will not be disappointed. One last tip the drive back to the airport was easy, but leave yourself time as the bus for the rental car drop off to the airport was a really slow (a lot of traffic at the airport in the morning) make sure you leave plenty of time to get to your flight. They made our trip just that much more fun. Thank you again for letting us have the use of your home for the week it was great.

Perfect location for us, lovely and very comfortable home fully furnished.

  • 5 of 5

If it wasn't for the scarcity of street parking, I would give this place 6 stars. Very nice, very thoughtful owner. The family will use this place again if it is available when we visit again.
