About the property

On the Woodland Hills/Calabasas border.THIS IS NOT A SHARE! THIS IS" NOT" DARK AND DANK CUBICLE APARTMENT! You have the entire place to yourself. If the calendar says that the cottage is available,. IT IS! HIT THE BLUE 'BOOK IT BUTTON'! Also If you decide this is the place for you and yours,and it is a last minute booking (three days or less before you arrive) you must send a request via email to book. Without that prior contact on a last minute booking ,we will most likely decline your request. Please leave a telephone number so that we may give you a quick call. Before the description starts in earnest...Please if you or any person in your party is a smoker, do not book this home. There will be a "dishonesty penalty" charged to you if you smoke anywhere on the premise.OK..with that bit of info out of the way..the place is centrally heated and cooled. Two very large tastefully inviting' bed rooms.(with King and Queen beds. You may have up to three (including 1 separate hideaway), beds,nobody has to sleep on a couch! One and one quarter bath(no waiting), The linens are of sufficient thread count and are impeccably clean.(I clean them myself). A bathroom with a 'full bathtub',and not just a shower. You can be assured of peaceful uninterrupted nights sleep..This is a completely detached building with 'total privacy' as it's sole design mission.The kitchen is fully appointed ,including a microwave,full sized refrigerator, full stove , toaster,spices that would satisfy most palettes,dishes,and an assortment of pots and pans. An array of gourmet teas and coffee are there for your enjoyment. There is a clothes washer and dryer solely for your use.*(Due to the drought,washer and dryer use are strictly for stays one week or longer If you are not planning your stay for a week or longer please do not request use of the washer or dryer. It is awkward and uncomfortable to have to say no.). Also because of the drought the dishwasher may not be used)The fully appointed grand kitchen that opens up into a bright living room that is large enough and elegant enough, to entertain new clients ,family ,new friends ,or whomever you choose! Flat screen television and 'WI-fi' are included.

Outside is a very cozy and comfortable 'artistically designed' private bar be cue area,perfect for lazy afternoon suntan sessions.Best of all its an easy short drive through 'back road beautiful mountain scenery' direct to Malibu Beach California .Lots of hiking and biking trails, High end 'shopping abounds well within easy walking distance.Conveniently situated between the Calabasas Commons,(as seen frequently on TMZ and other shows), and at least four other shopping malls and stand alone boutiques abound. There are also plenty of' Gourmet' restaurants for every taste and palate . Public transit is within blocks to take you to local places like Hollywood, Universal studios, Venice Beach, and such.There is no need to base your 'home away from home' in any one of those congested areas when within a few minutes you can be there.Lets face it, most Vacations to 'Big Cities' aren't very relaxing... Where you are able to go and really 'unwind' is what makes all of the difference.You can also view or book another one of our fabulous properties by following this link.

I cannot emphasis enough how important it is for a home away from home to afford you as a guest, 'complete privacy'...You wont feel intruded upon in at all.

Unfortunately for our safety and even more than that,..The safety and privacy of our guest we can not allow 'stop byes',or 'drive byes'. Please do not ask.We tried it before and it simply does not work. Valid identification for all guest must be presented at time of check in. Folks,because we "are not" a hotel therefore there is no concierge service. Unless approved by us,and arrangements have been made, well before your arrival date, (as in when you make your travel arrangements),we will not accept vacationers after 9 o''clock PM. We are in bed. No exceptions. Guest must contact host at least forty eight hours ahead of time to notify as to what time plane arrives if arriving via plane. After arrival please contact host as to give a better ETA .Restricted:This is a two story house. If you are handicapped ,older or have young children will want to view our other one story listings.No rearrangement of furnishings for any reason.Restricted: Not suitable for handicapped persons,younger children,or elderly.Due to safety concerns for existing and future guest, exact address Will only be emailed to guest (3) days before arrival. .The zip code is 91367.Due to the California water shortage stays under 7 days will not have access to clothing washer and dryer.The host will meet and greet you with a short orientation and give you the keys..Then you are set to start your vacation!

Cozy Guest House for two

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect (location/price/accommodations) for our four day stay. LA traffic delayed our arrival; the owners were available and understanding. The guest house is cute! Our compact car navigated the narrow driveway well. TV reception was good; water pressure was acceptable; the neighborhood was peaceful at night. Both bedrooms AND bathrooms are upstairs. That was not a terrible inconvenience but should be noted for those accustomed to relief within 10 steps. The “house rules” were great reminders for staying as a guest at any home; they relieved my apprehension and brought a sense of commonality. No surprises here; everything looked as pictured which was a relief. Thanks for letting us stay at your house. We had a great visit!

Volleyball Reunion

  • 5 of 5

A few of my old college volleyball teammates and I decided to meet in Los Angeles to reconnect, and I was responsible for planning the trip. I was worried about renting anything online because I had never done it before! I researched a few different rental sites, and ultimately decided to look at VRBO because I heard really good reviews, and I’m so glad I did! The booking process went really smoothly, the house was awesome and had a really authentic old world feel to it. Half way through our stay, Rich called to double check that everything was going ok, and I really appreciated the extra time and care he put into our accommodations! We’ll definitely be back!

Return Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Rich and Eva's house and if we have the opportunity we'll do it again. Everything was just as great the second time around. See our previous review ( by George and Jeanne). Can't think of anything to add to our first review except maybe a "+" to the five stars.

Relaxing home for a hectic week of classes

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything that it said it would be. we stayed here 6 nights while we finished up our graduate classes at the Wella Studios in Woodland Hills. It was great to know that after every day of studying and testing we had such a peaceful home to relax in. And the owner checked in on us to make sure everything was up to our expectations. Love that they started us out with a few grocery items and some wine. Will definitely stay here next time I come, and highly recommend to anyone!!

Very nice, well managed rental--Great value

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this two story cottage for two weeks while visiting our son who lives nearby. The cottage shares a lot with another larger one story home. Although "vistas" are not an asset, the location provides a private, safe and quiet living environment. Grocery, restaurants, shops, service stations, etc and located nearby. The 101 freeway is minutes away as is Malibu Canyon Pass. We did a lot of sight seeing along the PCH and North and found this to be an excellent location for that.

The cottage is well equipped, clean, and as others have pointed out, Rich and Eva provide more than adequate food and drink to get you started. You even have your own orange tree. Rich and Eva do a great job and are very attentive if needed. When they found out my wife and I like to bicycle they loaned us two bikes for our stay.

During our stay we took a road trip to Monterey where we spent two nights at a Hyatt. No contest, the cottage is a way better value. We shall return.

Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over New Years on a last minute reservation to attend the Rose Bowl football game. Rich and Eva were wonderful! The house was very comfortable, decorated with lots of Hollywood memorabilia and very cozy. They even provided food and drink for breakfast! The neighborhood felt safe and quiet, but easy access to freeways. The only drawback for us, and this is a small thing, was there was no sports channels on the satellite TV, such as ESPN. However, everything else was great and we would absolutely stay here again! Thank You!
