About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

On the Woodland Hills/Calabasas border.THIS IS NOT A SHARE! THIS IS NOT SOMEBODIES CUBICLE APARTMENT! THIS IS ALSO NOT A RUNDOWN PARTY HOUSE! 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...You have the entire place to yourself. Hello folks,..welcome to Casa De Los Conquistadors!This earliest example of California living was built in 1927! This is the very first house that was built in all of Woodland Hills. The home was originally the Caretaker's home for the Charlie Chaplin estate that is just down the street. Classic stucco design combined with arched ceilings,furnished with period antique pieces, The home's rustic patina harkens back to another less complicated, more romantic era. If you are looking for something "ho hum" modern and ordinary ,this isn't your place! However if you want a place that gives you a real feel of true to life early California (with all modern conveniences),this is the spot.If the calendar says that the house is available,. IT IS AVAILABLE! HIT THE 'BOOK IT BUTTON'! If you do 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 Centrally heated and cooled. Three very tastefully inviting' bed rooms.(with King, large full,and bunk beds. Also up to' three' (Separate hideaway beds),nobody has to sleep on a couch! Two full bath,s(no waiting), The linens are of sufficient thread count and are impeccably clean.(I clean them myself). Two bathrooms with 'full bathtubs',and not just a shower. ..This is a completely detached building with 'total privacy' as it's sole design mission.The kitchen is fully appointed ,including a dishwasher ,microwave, refrigerator, oven 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.*(Sorry,due to the drought,washer and dryer use are 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). The Fully appointed kitchen opens up into an elegant dining room . Flat screen television and 'wi-fi' are included.
Outside is a very large and comfortable patio, 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,(2 complementary bicycles available..use and borrow at your own risk). '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.

Guest Access

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.
Interaction with Guests

Upon your arrival we completely understand... YOU ARE TIRED AND YET EXCITED! A short three to five minute orientation is all that is necessary to acclimate you to your 'new digs'. After that if you have any further questions,concerns,or just want to say Valid identification for all guest must be presented at time of check in....HEY!!Just give a call.
The Neighborhood

Centrally located to EVERYTHING!! Yet outside of the frenzied mess of is LA. A bike ride away from shopping ,restaurants,( if your in really in shape ,..the beach) We're close to the interstate (the 101) ,yet if you choose it isn't necessary ...take the streets or back roads to Hollywood, universal studios, the ocean. or head north along the coast for a wonderful ride to the California wineries!
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 and credit card for all guest must be presented at time of check in. 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 .The host will meet and greet you with a short orientation and give you the keys..Then you are set to start your vacation!
