My husband and I visited LA for the first time, we arrived to an anniversary gift of wine and a card from Cheri, she pays attention to detail. We used the bus system all weekend and were offered transportation by Cheri's adult daughter as we needed, she was very sweet. The space was exactly as advertised and was SO private. We used the spa in the cool evenings and the pool was beautiful. Cheri has an office (and office hours) on site that made it easy to seek her out for directions or questions but otherwise she left us to ourselves. This place has EVERYTHING a visitor could want. Very close to a bus stop, easy to use the bus system from Bob Hope Burbank Airport, easy for Lyft/Uber drivers to find. (We purchase a 7 day bus pass "TAP card" for $25 and used Lyft in the evenings when buses were not running) Checkout list was clear and easy to "check-off" as we prepared to leave in order to get our deposit back. Clean space, large TV, private, cool/shaded location, lots of outdoor amenities like grill, tables, laundry area. WONDERFUL< WONDERFUL< WONDERFUL!

This was not my first choice, I must admit the reviews and rules for vacation scared me. My first choice was not available, so I went with the Bungalow. I am SO GLAD I did! The property is exactly as it is portrayed. The hostess was extremely gracious and my stay could not have been more perfect!

As for the previous reviews that almost scared me away, you must look at the whole picture. This is NOT a hotel, this is someones home. Today, respect seems to be a thing of the past. A little respect and common courtesy on your part will make this vacation spot a favorite. If however, you have no respect or common courtesy for others, this is not the place for you.

I absolutely LOVED the property, motif, privacy, amenities and the hostess. If you are looking for a private and relaxing get away, this is your go to spot!

Owner's Response: Jennifer, thank you so much for your lovely review, and what I appreciate the most about it is how you expressed the most important part of all, about respect and common courtesy. Bravo! Guests actually do set the standards for their vacation by their own actions. It was such a pleasure having you here! I feel I was the lucky one that your 1st choice did not work out, as I lucked out in getting you as my guest! You were the perfect guest and set a wonderful example for others! I hope you return again soon. Thank you.

I’m not going to lie, I was a bit nervous reading some of the reviews and all of the rules that come with staying here but I’m glad I didn’t let that keep me from booking this place. We stayed 2 nights. The property is amazing, when you get to the back yard, it’s like you’ve been transported to somewhere tropical, everything is beautifully put together. We stayed in The Bungalow and it was perfect for my husband and I. The bed is very soft, not good if you have a bad back like I do but with the extra pillows I was able to make it work for me, also the blinds on the door do not go all the way down so there is about a 3 inch gap at the bottom but we used our backpacks and some pillows to over the gap. I loved the size of the shower and the shower pressure. We didn’t have trouble parking, we got a spot across the street from the house both nights. What I was extremely excited and surprised about was that the property is literally a 3 minute drive from Old Town Calabasas. I love the location of this place, 25 minutes from Hollywood and 25 minutes from North Santa Monica if you cut through the Santa Monica Mountains. Grocery stores and restaurants within a 5 minute drive from the house. The check in/out instructions were word for word and everything you need to know is provided for you in the handbook they provide. I love this place and will definitely stay again.

This reservation was from another reservation site, but wanted to post here as well, as I would have liked a heads-up myself. Last time we stayed in this unit we had ten dollars held back from our deposit due to a picture frame allegedly receiving water damage. (plus @$37 for a "damaged" hair dryer that was damaged before our arrival. I chose not to make a stink about it, but lesson learned to document all abnormalities.) This visit, the very same frame was still there, "damaged" and all, yet owner still took out from the deposit, claiming she "was giving me a good deal by only taking ten dollars". It's a discount store frame, but it's the principal, money no matter. Then THIS stay, I forgot to clean two coffee cups, and she charged me the entire "$25 dish fee", due to my own stress and hurriedness out the door. I can see five bucks for a minute worth of work, but to charge a repeat customer $25 for cleaning two coffee cups? No sugar or cream even. Never experienced such stinginess before. Nice and cute place, served our purposes, but I refuse to support someone that operates the business as such and will not be returning.

Owner's Response: Micah had been here before (when they warped the picture frame AND also broke the hair dryer) and knew the rules re: dishes. It is clearly stated in our booklet in each unit AND there is a sign on the countertop warning that housekeeping does not do guests dishes, so if you do not want to do your dishes and want someone to do them for you it is a $25 flat fee. We do not "pro-rate" the service based on how many dishes there are. Micah should have also noticed the picture frame was NOT in the same condition, as the back of it was buckled & warped AND there was a new hair dryer installed which we had to special order. That is why he was charged for them the previous time. If Micah had a problem paying for damage he caused or special services he obviously expected on the dishes, why would he return?
