About Camilla More

I have lived in this house for 24 years and absolutely love it! It has charm and is light and bright and happy. My boyfriend and I love to entertain and so the house has a free flow to it where the inside and outside become one. We travel during the summer so we decided to offer it to others to stay in. I love to design and believe that the charm of this house is the simplicity , the bright colors throughout and the gorgeous pool and gardens with barbeque and lots of entertainment areas, offer guests the perfect retreat, just minutes from the exciting hustle and bustle of the restaurants on Ventura Boulevard.

Camilla More purchased this house in 1987

Why Camilla More chose Studio City

Studio City has become the 'Beverly Hills' of the valley! The shopping on Ventura Boulevard is outstanding - and there is a wonderful Farmers Market every Sunday where there are pony rides and a petting zoo for children. Studio City is conveniently close to the major Studios - Universal, Warner Brothers, CBS - and also an easy drive to the beaches, Six Flags magic Mountain and Disneyland. Hollywood , the Griffith Park Observatory, LACMA etcetc are 20 mins drive. In Studio City you are in a peaceful family community that is buzzing but not frenetic!

What makes this house unique

Once you have arrived at this house you will not feel like leaving! The view over the valley and surrounding mountains from the front deck is awe- inspiring. The feeling of tranquility and relaxation will overcome you as you lie by the pool or dine al fresco at night under the bamboo awning. You are on top of a knoll so there is no one looking in on you. Completely private.

Breathtaking Views, Beautiful Home, Quintessential California Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (2 adults, 3 kids aged 12.5, 7 and 3.5 years) thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in this lovely HOME. It is just that - a real home that is gorgeous in its location, cozy feel, landscaping and decor.

Camilla was a pleasure to deal with from the start of the rental process six months prior to our stay. Her home is perfectly appointed with absolutely everything we needed to enjoy our stay, including a very helpful collection of area attraction listings.

The View: You know when you climb the 30+ steps to the house, that there is something magical waiting at the top. We literally pinched ourselves every time we looked out each of the many windows - all of LA seems to be sprawled out in the view!

The drive up the the streets off Ventura Blvd. is so cool - we lived like locals while we were there. We were guaranteed a parking spot right in front of the house which was so convenient, and we always felt secure with the gated entry.

Kitchen, all three bedrooms and three bathrooms had everything we needed and more. The pool: gorgeous and the sun shone on it from 7am to well past 6pm! The outdoor area was cozy and perfect to lounge around the pool. Nights on the front porch watching the twinkling city lights were right out of a movie.

The area: Studio City - so much beauty to take in everywhere! It feels like a sweet town but is so close to surrounding hot spots too. Great shopping on Ventura Blvd, and an amazing Sunday Farmers' Market minutes away!

Such a fantastic week - we are counting the days til we can return. Thank you Camilla for your help and hospitality!

Terrific property. My family really enjoyed the pool and the quiet.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice house with a great private, secluded heated pool. The owners were very attentive. The pool heating wasn’t working and they had it fixed in less than 12 hours. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: It was unfortunate that the pool pump needed servicing but we have a great maintenance team who understand how important the comfort and happiness of our guests is to us. I am so glad to hear when problems are solved and guests are both understanding and grateful of the speedy attention to the problem.

Great week in an amazing house with Pool

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very nice week in this beautiful, charming and lovely accomondation. The house was perfect for us (Family of 4 incl 2 adult daughters). You find everything you need there. Especially, we loved the more than comfortable armchairs in the living room. With two armchairs and two sofas, you can easily spent the evening alltogether in the living rooms. We also loved the pool and outside area, which is beautifully lighted in the dark. Camilla and Cameron were very helpful and answered all our questions very fast. We can recommend anyone who is looking for a nice place near LA to stay with Camilla and Cameron!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Stefan and Astrid! You were a delight to have stay in our house. Being comfortable and happy is how we like to live and we designed our house for guests to feel this pleasure too ! Both the living area and backyard have comfortable seating areas so everyone can be together. Interacting with family is the perfect holiday vacation! We are so glad you liked the lights surrounding the pool, and the globe lanterns hanging on the lemon and peach trees at the far end. We look forward to have you all to stay again soon.

Camilla and Cameron are very attentive and pleasant hosts. We had an excellent stay. There were a couple of small issues but they were handled with lightning speed and didn't influence our stay in a negative way.

The house itself is perfect and very welcoming. The kitchen is complete, plenty towels, good washing machine and dryer. As a bonus hummingbirds were circling the house which provided unique photo opportunities. We'd love to return to this splendid house.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear of the enjoyed stays at our house! Hummingbirds and a family of doves living in the olive trees bring a constant source of joy and peace to the garden. If there are ever any issues or questions regarding the house, we respond immediately, because we understand the word "service" and want our guests to feel thoroughly looked after. We also respect our guests privacy, and only make contact when invited to do so.
