Great location. Great for big/multi family vacays

  • 5 of 5

perfect for large/multi family vacations. Centrally located about 15-20 min with traffic to disneyland, we stayed here with my family of 4, my mother and my husbands parents for my son's college graduation weekend. Big beautiful kitchen, clean, comfortable. We tried almost all the nearby restaurants that were helpfully recommended by the owner and they were all great. Quiet neighborhood. Highly recommended.

Perfect base for family to explore the area

  • 5 of 5

This house in Whittier is very well positioned to access all that there is to do in the area. We were there a week with our 4 adult children, two with spouses as well as 1 grandchild. The 4 bedrooms were easily accessed and the house location is great. We were 2 hours from San Diego Zoo and made a day trip out of that. We also went to Griffith Observatory and Getty Center as well Huntington Beach. Hiked in Turnbull Canyon as well. The main reason we went when we did was the Rose Parade which was an easy 45 minute drive to get to Pasadena early in the morning. I highly recommend this house and the owner was very good with giving necessary information to make it a pleasant stay.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This home was in the perfect location to walk to almost everywhere in downtown Whittier. Close to excellent restaurants. Also a short drive to our son's wedding venue. Roomy home. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped, all appliances worked great. Home and amenities were as described.

overall we were impressed a with the property, plenty of space photos on line was a true impression

  • 5 of 5

Bill the owner was very helpful and passed on useful information which helped on our days out. On the down side the tiles in the kitchen and formal dinning room needed a good clean.

If we return to LA in the future we would use Bill and his property's again

Very homely and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We came to visit LA from England and rented Bill's house. Everything we needed was provided and instructions were so informative we did not have to worry about anything. There was a blackboard in tbe house recommending local restaurants and best places to visit. You will need a car for shopping and supermarkets. Good local restaurants within walking distance. A sat nav is a must and makes life easier especially if your not a US residence as it is not easy to get to grips with the road system. We had a super time and would stay in Whittier again.

Notes:
We have great hiking, running and mountain bike trails which to explore in the local Whittier Hill , just a few minutes away. If you are a history buff and want to do some exploring, the City of Whittier is where President Richard Nixon was raised, attended school, graduated from Whittier College, had his first law office, all this happened within a few blocks of the house !!!
