Overview

About the property

Opulent and spacious studio apartment with an elegant boutique touch.

(I also have two other rentals for your review, so if you require different dates, or amenities, please visit these links as well: The Urban Refuge https://www.vrbo.com/713340 The Millennial Hideaway https://www.vrbo.com/762499)

A Living Wage Policy: I support a living wage. 100% of the cleaning fee is paid to the team member who sets up, manages, and cleans this apartment. I pay no less than $20 per hour for this service. Please know that I have made a commitment to supporting a living wage in my business.

The Space

A short 13 minute walk from beautiful downtown Burbank, the Burbank Sanctuary is an opulent and spacious studio apartment with an elegant boutique touch. Enjoy luxury bedding, abundant amenities, 42" flatscreen and full kitchen. Experience five diamond standards with at home comfort, privacy and security. The apartment also has an iron and ironing board.

The Burbank Sanctuary is a downstairs apartment. While the vast majority of our guests love the apartment, it's not for very light sleepers.

Relaxation and comfort will come easy during your stay with us. Your experience includes queen-size luxury bedding, unlimited hot showers, free wifi and digital 42" widescreen with Netflix, Amazon and Chromecast.

You will also have a full size kitchen at your fingertips with all the cooking comforts you could wish for. A full size fridge, unlimited ice, soap, shampoo and towels are among the many delightful amenities available during your stay at the Burbank Sanctuary.

Enjoy accommodations and VIP treatment of a boutique hotel with at home comfort, privacy and security.

The building is a charming and cozy 5-unit apartment residence. There is a secluded side-entrance for maximum privacy and home-like comfort.

Guest Access

Ample unrestricted street parking is available, no permits or pesky meter feeding required. Driveway parking is reserved for our permanent residents. Everything is digital, no keys to weigh you down during your time out and about. I set a new code for each guest which assures total privacy and security during your stay.

Interaction with Guests

Depending upon the time of year, Self check-in is available or you may meet and greet with your host, sharing tips and information about the apartment and local area.

The Neighborhood

I love the Magnolia Park area of Burbank. This property sits next to the Chandler bike path and is walking distance from the downtown Burbank area. There's convenient food, markets and plenty of shopping nearby.

Getting Around

I always recommend rideshares such as Sidecar or Uber, but public transportation is equally within reach. If you wish to use Sidecar, my referral code is sf6z2 which will grant you a special discount on your first ride.

Other Things to Note

I have been in the hospitality industry since 2005. I owned and operated two hotels and I have traveled extensively. My sensibilities are for the traveler and the amenities included in your stay meet my high standards for quality hotel accommodations. In addition, the Burbank Sanctuary offers the fastest and most reliable internet available in the city.

House Rules

I cater to the nonsmoker without pets. Smoking is not permitted inside the apartment nor on the property. Our other tenants dislike the aroma. We love small non-human friends, but unfortunately they are not allowed at the property. We observe quiet time from 10pm to 8am and kindly request that you do the same by turning down your music or television during these times.

Why Christopher Matthew Spencer chose Los Angeles County

I've lived in this very community since 1991 and would never live anywhere else. It's amazing. Not at all a big metropolitan area. It's suburban and apart from the hectic life of LA, yet fully accessible to the entire county through the immediate freeway access nearby.

What makes this apartment unique

I fell in love with this building because it feels like a house. Not a big complex. It was built in 1939 so the structure and feel is solid. I've updated the amenities to provide hotel-level services.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lauren was amazing. An extraordinary guest who is very tidy and respectful. I'd recommend her to any host. Thanks for being great!

Cute studio apartment

  • 4 of 5

We were in town visiting our daughter and chose this cute studio apartment to stay in. It's convenient to many Burbank attractions, and easy access to highways for longer trips. Clean and well kept, comfortable bed, great little kitchen for cooking a meal. I'd recommend this to others!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the best vacation rental i have stayed at and it has nothing to do with the unit itself but rather the thoughtfulness of the host. He pays attention to the tiny details and it definitely was noticed. My husband and I are taking our 1 year anniversary vacation and arrived to champagne (which we used for mimosas) and chocolate. He supplied little shampoos, and lotion as if your at a hotel. The tv was already signed into netflix and amazon prime. When my husbands pocket ripped, to my surprise there was a sewing kit. He leaves a very detailed packet of places to try because you are perfectly located next to a very nice shopping district and local spots. Tony's darts away was an awesome recommendation. This is a very simple but beautifully decorated apartment that has everything that you need. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Ready to move in 😄

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and would definitely rent again. Check in was so easy. Accommodations and little extras were to perfection. We came to this rental because our place was sublet for the weekend and we had an unexpected trip back to town. My daughter and I joked that we would like to move from our place and would be so happy here! Didn't really use the kitchen but I could easily cook meals if needed. The bath has great lighting and the adjoining 'makeup area' is great for two people that need to get ready at the same time. Towels are nice, plenty of hot water and all of the provided bath products were appreciated. The bed was really comfortable. All of the options for outlets around the sleeping area are great and usually lacking in most rentals. I'm very familiar with rental prices in the area and found this to be worth the money. Great convenient area and walkable if needed. Loved it!

Loved our 5 night stay at the Burbank Santcuary!

  • 5 of 5

The Burbank Santcuary was perfect for our 5 night stay in the LA area. The neighborhood was quiet and the studio apartment had everything we needed. It was extremely clean and up to date. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This was an outstanding suite with everything that was described. Christopher was extremely helpful and answered all my questions quickly! I definately felt like i was home. Honestly, who needs a hotel when everything was provided here at an awesome rate. I had parking on the streets for everyday that i stayed. The shopping centers were no more than a couple of miles away. The major highways being close was a big plus. Thank you Christopher once again for your hospitality. You were so professional and very well organized!
