About Greg Gonzales
I grew up in Simi Valley and bought this gem of a property which is about a mile away from my boyhood home. I am Ex-Air Force with a wife of 30 years and four children and one granddaughter. I myself am the coolest and funniest dad ever and my beautiful bride is a kind and sweet as they come. She's a wonderful cook and has catered many events on our property, many with over 100 people.
Greg Gonzales purchased this Guest House in 1996
Why Greg Gonzales chose Simi Valley
This property was a diamond in the rough that no one was interested in for 18 months until I showed up in early 1996. There was nothing green or beautiful on this property at that time, just a house and an unfinished pool house but in the years since we have remodeled just about every part of the property. I have since finished the guest house, built a playhouse, a gazebo, a barn and a greenhouse. There are paths and steps and trails meandering a throughout the property which is 100% accessible by foot and vehicle.
What makes this Guest House unique
We are just off the beaten path, close to all the conveniences one could ask for yet when you’re in your guest suite this is if you’re miles away from anywhere. There is an ever-so-slight breeze during the day, beautiful views in every direction with mature trees, thousands of feet of grass encompassed and 1 1/3 acres of beauty. A nap in a hammock or a game of corn hole and a bbq, enjoy the warm pool with it's waterslide and diving rock. With torches lighting the property you evenings are whatever you want them to be; an atmosphere dictated by you and whatever mood you're after; totally relaxing with the sound of waterfall or more upbeat with drinks and music. All days are good at Penny Lane

First California trip
Staying at Penny Lane with Greg and Lori was a great experience. From the time we checked in until we left, we were very comfortable. The room and bathroom were clean, and have a cool vibe. The views from the yard and pool/spa are breathtaking. The property is easy to get to from LAX and is close to shops, restaurants and the Reagan Presidential Library. The pictures of the property are very accurate. Greg and Lori and awesome laid back people. We are already planning another trip to California and will be staying at Penny Lane. This was our first VRBO experience, and it was a sensational one.
Had a great weekend
They are a wonderful and friendly group of people. We had a wonderful time. Thoroughly enjoyed meeting them. Would definitely stay again! They always made sure we were enjoying ourselves.
Friendly professional staff, very clean, comfortable and beautiful. I highly recommend.
PERFECT! More than what we asked for
My goal: My husband (54yr) & myself (52yrs) wanted to float peacefully in a warm pool. Goal achieved! plus more. The pool was warm, clean, luxurious - pool slide, waterfall, rock walls, hot tub surrounded by beautiful views of mountains from every direction. We told them our favorite music, and they played it on the speakers while we swam/floated in the pool. In the evening we sat in the hot tub with twinkling colored lights all around. Our room was clean and cute - huge shower and huge TV. The room has a refrigerator, freezer, Kruger coffee maker, microwave and sink, and we had access to an extra refrigerator and freezer. Greg and Lori were awesome. She cooked dinner for us and offered breakfast and lunch. We never planned our meals right in order to get to eat with them, but for sure we will next time. She brought us homemade cookies while we soaked in the hot tub. When you are at the house, you feel like you are out in nature, but a short drive down the hill and anything you want is 5 minutes away - including the Ronald Reagan Library. Anything we needed, we simply texted them and within seconds, they delivered!! We found our vacation/get away spot!!
I’m so glad you enjoyed yourselves and found the respite you sought. It’s a shame we didn’t get to share a meal but your desire to spend time alone and escape from the world was first and foremost so I’m certainly glad that happened. We’ll break bread together next time.
Thank you so much for the great review
Great place to stay!
The Hosts Greg and Lori are extremely nice and pay great attention to detail! They went the extra mile to make our stay memorable and enjoyable!!
Had a good visit with Nancy and Scott and made new friends. Great experience.
Nothing short of amazing
The stay with Greg and Lori was nothing short of amazing. The place was just as pictured with even more little treasures than expected. Their communication and flexibility is top notch and they are very gracious host. The room is well appointed and the property is beautiful. We drove in from Vegas to visit family and Lori met us upon our, early, arrival to give us the lay of the land and introduce us to their dogs who came to check on us every morning which was a nice addition to our stay. If you are ever in Simi Valley and need a place this is the one, hands down. Greg and Lori are amazing people and their hospitality will add such value to your stay. We will be returning soon. Thank you folks for everything!!!
Wow that’s a great review! Thank you. I had no idea I was such a great guy. I knew my wife was cool though.
Well Adam and his lovely bride were a great joy to host. They were very appreciative of our place and our efforts. It turns out we have a lot in common. I always enjoy good conversation with good people and this was no exception.
They were upbeat and just downright cool people. Since they have family nearby I hope they make this their primary place to stay.
