"We have rented vacation homes for over 25 years and all over the world. Quite simply, this home, its amenities, location and helpful yet unobtrusive owner make it one of the best vacation rental experiences we have had. This property has a nearly perfect location for anyone seeking both elusive privacy and proximity to L.A.'s hottest locales. From the moment you enter this richly appointed and art-filled modern California hideaway, literally tucked into the hills above Sunset, you know you've arrived at someplace special. It's not until you experience a day enjoying the privacy of the pool and zen-inspired outside garden area followed by dinner at Pace, Bouchon, Fig & Olive or one of the many nearby destination restaurants or clubs that you realize just how special. We enjoyed the full spectrum of offerings from a quick and delicious breakfast at Cheebo's to lunch among the glitterati at Chateau Marmont and dinner at fabulous Nobu. Also, don't forget, you are nestled among the historic homes of Laurel Canyon...reading online about the lush history of the surrounding homes and your "neighbors" while there enriches the experience.
During our stay we had both busy days away from the house and days we did not leave. The variety of experience one can have nearby and yet the feeling of home that this location provides is really quite unique. When in the house or out in the pool/garden area you are afforded absolute privacy and tranquility. Head down the hill and experience all that West Hollywood and Beverly Hills have to offer. The owner takes great pride in what she has assembled here and offers her guests every amenity and convenience as well as local tips upon your arrival. While remaining available via phone or text if you have questions or comments she importantly respects your privacy and does not intrude upon you during your stay...a perfect combination in our experience.
One final note: we'd ask, selfishly yet respectfully, that you treat it as your own and take good care of it as we are looking forward to our return. Even though there are many places to choose from, and we like variety, this is a place worthy of return and we plan on doing so soon."
