  • Charming home in great location

    "We have stayed in this lovely home twice now in the past five years. It was very nice 5 years ago and has gotten even better with renovation of the kitchen, bathroom and front courtyard. The description is accurate and the owner very responsive and helpful through out. The house is an absolute peaceful retreat when you need it and close to most places you would want to visit. The outdoor spaces are great in the summer, with several seating options to choose from depending on the time of day. The pool is a great asset, good size and heated which is nice even in the summer time. Lovely landscaping all around. We saw the hummingbirds! Tastefully decorated interior, more than sufficient space with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Kitchen with enough equipment and utensils. Nice neigbourhood with great food options around the corner for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and good coffee(!). Shopping mall down the street and access to main connecting streets to anywhere in LA. Access to the beach is even easier now with the metro Expo line going to Santa Monica (It also goes to vibrant Downtown LA, but did not try that direction). As has been said: it is like staying in a friend's home rather than a furnished rental. Reluctant to write this review because the house is available for a limited time every year and we don't want to miss out the next time we are in the area...but have to recommend it to anyone who visits LA!"

  • Fairytale Getaway

    "Brenda's home was the perfect setting for our 10th anniversary party. The photos of the property do NOT do it justice. The house is a sprawling six-bedroom with sitting room to spare. We had a total of ten people staying in the house and often joked about the possibility of getting separated from each other. Each bedroom was comfortable and well-equipped with a variety of beautiful linens. Every bathroom was spacious and state-of-the-art. The master suite is vast yet cozy; the shower alone must be seen to be believed. For breakfast, our families had a wonderful time preparing toast, fruit, and ceviche on the extensive kitchen counter space and cooking bacon and eggs on the top-of-the-line stove, a hot pot of coffee ready and waiting near a cabinet thoughtfully stocked with sugars, mugs, and creamers. Cleanup after meals was a breeze using the stacked dishwashers and deep sinks. The family room has a couch that I'm sure could seat twenty if given the chance. We spent our Sunday afternoon splayed out on the plush cushions and obscenely large ottomans watching football and catching up on family gossip. Brenda was kind enough to provide a collection of soft throws so it was easy for everyone to maintain their perfect level of comfort. The game room has a full-size pool table with a cover that provided the perfect buffet surface for our party. Our guests spent hours hovering around the insanely convenient bar area, music playing through the multitude of hidden speakers as we drank and danced in what often felt like a private lounge. And then, the pièce de résistance: the backyard. The pool, hot tub, and plant life create a truly fable-like oasis you would never expect to find in the middle of Northridge. It was the absolute perfect setting for our candlelit anniversary party. We were able to set up six 60" tables around the pool with plenty of room to maneuver. Three ivy-covered pergolas provided height from which to hang string lights and tulle, transforming the Garden of Eden into an elegant alfresco soirée for the evening. The lower level of the patio is enormous and naturally became the dance floor for the event. The night was magical and will not soon be forgotten. Having used it for both an event and casual family gathering, we found the house suited both needs extraordinarily well. Every one of our guests remarked on the beauty and utility of the location and we are already thinking of excuses to visit once again. A must-see!"

  • Wonderfully located and perfect service

    "We enjoyed the 3 days in Jim's apartment in Manhattan Beach. The apartment itself was really nice. With a great view of the beach and nicely furnished. Jim was extremely helpful and all went very well. Be careful with the parking, as it is very narrow."
