About Candace or Richard Gershman

We have lived here for 24 years and now split our time between Los Angeles and Nashville. We are offering our home for the first time as a vacation rental. We have enjoyed being VRBO renters for some time in Europe, Palm Springs, etc. Richard has worked for many years in the TV/Film industry and now chairs a film school at Watkins College of Art, Design and Film. Candace manages our rental properties.

Candace or Richard Gershman purchased this house in 1990

Why Candace or Richard Gershman chose Los Angeles County

This has been our home and as such has been decorated for comfort and ease of living. We have enjoyed our neighborhood where Candace has organized a 4th of July parade for over 20 years. We have easy access to all the fun things to do in LA.

What makes this house unique

Relaxing back yard where you can swim and entertain in privacy. Lovely den with fireplace, great entertainment center and piano. Nice neighborhood for walking.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -
(10 traveler reviews)

average rating of 4.8 based on 11 reviews

WE-4 adults and 2 kids-spent 8 nights is this lovely home and were happy to do so.

  • 4 of 5

We were very optimistic about this listing because of the friendly and welcoming response to our inquiries.We arrived to a quiet street, were able to park at the house and were greeted by the housekeeper which created a friendly and comforting start to the stay. She and the Owners remained responsive to any questions for the stay. It was clean, roomy (there were 6 of us and never got in each other's way) and very centrally located - groceries, pharmacies and restaurants literally within walking distance and other choices, 5 or so more minutes away. We were able to use their "file" the first night to order in from suggested restaurants. We were busy with dance camps and touristy things - all seemed just minutes away- and every evening were so happy to come back to cook, swim and just chill in this beautiful and comfy home.We seemed to have all the dishes, cooking utensils- pots, pans, grill needs, etc; towels and bedding that we needed, tons of storage and had plenty of inside and outside sitting areas.One of us was even able to practice voice lessons using the piano! We all made use of the WIFI - whether for work needs or pleasure. We had access to easy parking and were not bothered by gardeners, pool people or housekeeping. We have stayed in quite a few Homeaway places and this was definitely in my top 3! We have already suggested this place to friends and family and would definitely return again when in the area - Thanks!

perfect home to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in the US which included 5 nights in this lovely home.

It was the perfect base for our family which included our 21, 20 and 14 year old children. The location in Sherman Oaks was quiet and safe but only a short drive from all the attractions we wanted to see - Universal Studios, 6 flags roller coaster park, Hollywood, Beverley Hills, the Queen Mary ship (sister ship of Titanic) etc.

It was also near plenty of places to eat or get take out if needed.

The property is spacious and comfortable and has a great back yard including a good sized pool. It ticked all the boxes for us and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to others; we would certainly return if we ever came back to LA.

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying here with my family and friends for our summer vacation. The location was perfect to Hollywood and Universal Studio! This house was a great place to call home for a week and feels very comfy. The pool was a great addition because having so many kids and people, it was really fun using it.The property itself is amazing, there is a ton of detail in the furnishings, and the decor is beautiful. Thanks for a great experience!.
