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 1986

Why Camilla More chose San Fernando Valley

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!

Relaxing week in Studio City

  • 5 of 5

The owners Camilla and Cameron were very nice and attentive. Their place was very comfortable, very clean and decorated very nicely (English cottage feel). One can immediately feel the personal touches made by Camilla and Cameron, from the freshly cut roses in a vase and the bottle of wine to welcome their guests. Their place was a very nice refuge from the crazy traffic of LA and my family and dogs enjoyed our restful vacation.

Luxury Private HIllside Retreat with Pool, studio city

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the gorgeous house over the Christmas holiday. We spent two amazing weeks there and Camila and her family were wonderful hosts. The house was everything we had hoped for and more - just beautiful, perfect location, spacious and comfortable. My kids loved being able to swim in the heated pool. My husband and I were working on the Universal lot, and had family in Pasadena, this location was just perfect. I can not wait to go back and stay there again. Camila was the best communicator and host.

Spacious, comfortable, beautifully appointed home with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a 2 week stay in this beautiful home. Camilla and Cameron were gracious and welcoming hosts as well as responsive to our questions and needs. The pictures on the website accurately show how well appointed and equipped the house is but you have to live in it to appreciate how comfortable and spacious it feels. There is a climb from the street to the house, but once you have ascended the stairs you will be taken by the stunning view of the valley below. The patio and pool area offer choices of being in the sun or under the protection of the patio cover while enjoying the pool or using the new gas grill.

This weekend was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! While celebrating my son's graduation, I have to confess... I SPLURGED... just a little... for those that know me, this doesn't happen often, if at all. But, in hindsight, I have NO REGRETS and am so glad I did! Camilla's home is gorgeous, quaint and is in the perfect location. Her decor is the perfect blend of modern with a little twist of vintage - It is beautifully decorated, yet it's warm, inviting and colorfully decorated with an amazing collection of books and artwork, throughout. Camilla's home is located in an amazing neighborhood, perfect for catching up on great rest and relaxation, indulging in the heated pool or sitting back on the porch, watching the sunset or reading a good book. It's well-equipped with everything needed for a family vacation, as well as entertaining guests. We utilized every ounce to the max and our guests enjoyed the home, almost as much as we did! In doing so, our family was able to enjoy the fruits of our labor, sacrifices and return the love and hospitality a few locals have consistently shown us, over the past almost 6 years of being in Hollywood! What initially started off as a search for hotel accommodations for my Mom & Mother-in-Law as they arrived in town to witness their Grandson's culmination, turned out to be a FABULOUS STAY-CATION and whole lot more... IMMENSE FUN + FELLOWSHIP, PHENOMENAL FOOD, SPECTACULAR VIEWS, MUCH NEEDED REST + RELAXATION, FOND MEMORIES + MORE! Thank you Camilla for being such the professional and for having a caring spirit to share peace and happiness with others. We look forward to returning and perhaps making our stay an annual event!
