Devan purchased this apartment in 1998
I bought this home when I came to Los Angeles to attend USC while my partner attended UCLA. The home was in between the two provided us the space and the comfort and the elegance that we sought. Plus, the huge yard was an added benefit.
- The architectural detailing
- The flow of the floor plan
- The corner lot which provides exceptional light and air flow
- The exceptionally large and private back & side yards
we generally enjoyed the house. You need a car to go everywhere, but that is LA. As Sarah must have told you the outside light did not work which was a bit dangerous at night and the right hand side light in the master bedroom also did not work after I changed the bulb. Air conditioning was a bit mysterious. Look forward to renting it again.
We stayed for a week in Devan's elegant and well- furnished apartment set in a nice neighborhood only a couple of miles away from LA's many attractions. On arrival we received a warm and helpful welcome. To achieve a five star rating we would suggest investing in some new pillows and duvets. Recommendations on local restaurants and supermarkets would be helpful, Overall we have no hesitation in recommending this property.
This is a beautiful house, with lovely garden, classic furnishings, elegant linens and a fully equipped kitchen. We entertained local friends as if we lived in Los Angeles, and could easily get quickly to various parts of town from this highly desirable central location on the edge of Beverly Hills. The owner was a most gracious and helpful host, offering tips on local restaurants and attractions, and welcoming us in a personal but not intrusive way. We could not recommend this house strongly enough to couples or small families looking for a great getaway spot in the heart of Los Angeles. Great dining room, ample dishes and glassware and a tinkling fountain in the backyard to lull you to sleep at night. Five stars!~
We were fortunate to be able to stay a week in Devan's beautiful home. It is the perfect location and he is the perfect host! It is very central and as I am a jogger I also felt extremely safe and comfortable jogging in the area. The layout is fantastic and the backyard so lovely to sit and relax. The ample parking is also a great asset. Everything is as described and we can certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a comfortable and beautiful home to stay while in L.A. Thank you Devan, we look forward to coming back!!
This is an amazing home! It is elegant, well appointed, clean and comfortable. We were visiting our son in LA and spent the holidays here. Some of my favorites include: the view from the living room window; the baby grand piano; the charming kitchen with an O'Keefe and Merritt stove (if you love to cook, you will appreciate this feature!); the extremely comfy beds and nice linens; the vanity and dressing room area; opening windows each day and letting in that SoCal sunshine and fresh air; the very private backyard and the sound of the trickling fountain; the amazing sound system available throughout! So many nice features--you will be spoiled and will miss them when you return home. The owner is so nice and most kind; he will go out of his way to ensure that you have a wonderful experience. He was always available to answer any questions and to offer recommendations for places to eat, shop and visit. I have found a genuine "home away from home" and look forward to returning to this lovely home on my next visit to LA!
This house is beautiful and amazing, we like the decoration and facilities. The location is very convenient . We had a great time here and looking forward to come back again.
Minutes away from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Hollywood, & 10 freeway.
