POOL HEATING fee - October 1 - May 1. If you want the pool heated, there is an additional $500 charge fore the first week, then $50/day per day (booked) and I need two week's notice please. if you book the house for 30 days or more, pool heating is complimentary.

If you want to hire a chef, a house keeper, a personal trainer or ... , a notebook of domestic staff agencies has been created for your convenience.

FYI - Murphy's Law - Very often I get similar inquiries for bookings on similar dates: I don't hold reservations - so I will go with the first one who officially books the house. If you are serious and like the house - don't wait too long ...


~ BREATHE ~

Welcome to my home. Surrounded by century-old trees, decorated with a mixture of styles such as Belgian, Provencal, Japanese, Shaker, French Industrial, 60’s Design, English Traditional and Artist’s Loft, this unexpected 'resort-like' farmhouse is located in the heart of Brentwood (Los Angeles) just minutes away from Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, Bel Air, and Westwood ... not to mention 'Brentwood Village' where you will find charming shops and restaurants!

The house is located less than 5 miles from the beach, the heart of UCLA, Royce Hall, The Broad Stage Performing Arts Center, Temescal Gateway Park, Will Rogers State Historic Park and Polo Field, etc.

From swimming in the large pool to playing Petanque in the back yard, from biking or hiking in the canyons to visiting the neighbor’s horses, this property is made for cozy dinners and playing games with friends and family (some games include Uno, Chinese Checkers, Backgammon, Go, Taboo, Balderdash, Puzzles, Cards, and a few more). There are 8 sets of Petanque boules for you to use, as well as a few tennis rackets and tons of tennis ball (there are multiple free-access tennis courts around the city).

For the active types and professional athletes, you are minutes away from The Brentwood Country Club (Exclusive Golf Club), The Riviera Country Club (one of LA's oldest and most exclusive private golf/tennis club), Will Rogers Park (Polo brunch anyone?), and Mandeville Canyon Road which is LA's premier destination for bikers training for 'The Tour de France'.

Whether you are a photographer, a chef, a musician, an artist, an author, an architect, a designer, a film person, a stylist, an entrepreneur, a businessman, a family … this house – full of charm and “esprit” - will feed your inspiration. You’ll never want to leave.

Except for a very rare and occasional use of bleach, the house uses only non-toxic, eco-friendly and biodegradable cleaning products, as well as recycled paper products. And that goes for the garden as well. The only pesticides are ladybugs and snail-eating snails.

A whole-house water filter makes the water feel and taste delicious from any faucet.

Thieves and other organic and therapeutic essential oils are diffused in the house on a regular basis to keep the air clean. Thieves is a combination of essential oils that are highly antiviral, antiseptic, anti-fungus, antibacterial, anti-infectious and so forth.

Remote controls, phones, light switches, and doorknobs are cleaned w/ alcohol after each individual stay.

There is a professional massage table (and special sheets), two exercise balls, a vibrational machine, and a few other gadgets at your disposal ... (upon request).

There is wireless internet in the whole house, but if you prefer, it can be unplugged and there is a DSL cable in every room. There is a signal booster inside the house - but to be honest, cell phone signals are limited ... our provider is Spectrum, so maybe get a Spectrum temporary/travel geared signal enhancer while you are here?

There is a 32' Television in the living room ONLY, a multi-zone DVD player, Cable channels include HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, CNN, BRAVO, and all the basic cable channels such as E!, MTV, VH1, MSNBC, FOX, ON-DEMAND, etc...) and APPLE TV w/ Netflix & Hulu Plus.

1 BBQ available for your convenience. You'll just have to buy the charcoal ... (please do not use chemical fluids)

And more surprises ...

And don't forget to use my GUIDEBOOK! I've listed some of my favorite places in Los Angeles (and the list is growing!). Feedback welcome!

I'm looking forward to welcoming you in my own little 'LA sanctuary'. Petanque anyone?

House available for photo shoots, but not filming! Rates to be negotiated via Meyler & Co.
