A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home for 12 days and it was perfect! The view was priceless, house and grounds were very well maintained and clean and we had privacy and felt secure. The pool area was fantastic and very well stocked with outdoor furniture for eating and relaxing.

Most nights we had 5-6 people and we never felt short of space. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking meals and we also enjoyed using the grill.

Art was very gracious and made us feel welcome. He was available if we had any questions or concerns.

We hope to stay in this home again and it is truly a slice of heaven!

Our American Dreamhouse ;)

  • 5 of 5

It was our second time at this house. 2 years ago we spent our honeymoon here and we said we have to come back because we enjoyed our stay so much. We love everything about the house – the tranquillity, the view, the space, the privacy, being woken up by the birds and feeling a little bit like a celebrity. The main reason for coming back to L.A. was this house. It is clean and spacious and has a beautiful garden with a spectacular view. We spent most of our time outside – starting from breakfast at the patio, swimming in the big pool and having a great BBQ. Art is a great host and has lots of tips for what to do and where to go out for dinner. We enjoyed our time at the "Inn of the seventh ray". What a romantic place and great place to eat. Thank you Art for your recommendation. All in all we felt very blessed and really enjoyed our stay again. We hope we can come back soon!

Where will I start to tell you all about this amazing place? We haven't long returned from our stay at this wonderful property with spectacular views,spacious very clean rooms,hummingbirds at your doorstep and every amenity you can think of. We cried when we were leaving and before that we actually changed our flights to stay a few days longer. The house itself is fantastic and very private also very well looked after. The gardener came in and kept the place looking lovely and a pool cleaner worked his magic on the pool,they were so fast and good at their job you wouldn't even know they were there.The kitchen has everything you need and more and we used the enormous barbecue outside numerous times and sat outside at the lovely table with a little glass of wine just taking in the beauty of the place. The pool is spotless and we went for a morning swim everyday and had fun in the jacuzzi some evenings.The swimming pool and jacuzzi is brand new and you can tell from the lovely blue and white tiles surrounding it. The sun loungers are so comfortable and we had brand new sun towels laid out of us, such a nice touch from the owner Art. The place itself is so private and secured by private moving gates.its great being the last house on top of the hill which makes it more so private. We found out a few celebrities live very close and any neighbors we did see when we were leaving the house for the day were all very pleasant. We actually did feel like celebrities ourselves. We visited the Jackson household approx 10 minutes away. It was all very exciting. The location is great with Ventura Blvd just minutes away with a great Ralph's store for all your shopping needs and Art the owner also leaves good take away menus and maps ,books etc. The house was well stocked up with those little extra things like hankie boxes and soap etc in every room.We all very very at home here. I loved the walk in wardrobes with plenty of space to put all your holiday clothes and a ironing board and iron hair dyer etc. Art the owner left some goodies on arrival...I knew from emails I would like him.a fantastic man and now a friend for life.he let his doggy Gracie stay with us for a few nights as we missed our Maltese pup and Gracie is exactly the same.he welcomes you and shows you round and leaves you to it but I liked him so much we invited him round for a barby.what a great night and now a great friend.Art thank you for all your help and tips of places to visit.you made our holiday.xxx

Owner's Response: Ahh, Shirley, this is so nice! I really think I found a true friendship with you, I have many nice people visiting me, but you were #1. I wish we lived closer to each others, so we could meet more often! Michell, Charlie, fantastic people.. You are very lucky to have them. I talk about you to everybody I meet, lol.. It was not easy to leave this house and rent it out for 5 years, believe me. But you need to do what you need to do to survive sometimes. I had many very nice experiences with families, but never really got close to anyone, and enjoyed every minute with anyone as much as with you. It was absolutely great! Thank you for taking time out to write this review, I know how busy you are..And the new car! haha..Did you sleep in it last night? Art

Lovely Location, quiet, private, & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Hi Art,

We had a lovely stay in your home. The location was perfect for us, being only 7 minutes away from family members we were visiting in Sherman Oaks. It was also close to immediate needed facilities - groceries, restaurants etc., We discovered Coral Tree Cafe on Ventura. Fabulous breakfast place! (They serve breakfast until 3.00pm). The house itself was well represented by the photos and while we didn't spend a lot of time there, we enjoyed the privacy and the quiet of the property when we lounged outside. The kitchen is overall well stocked - but we missed having a blender. The only other improvement that we all felt could be made would be better pillows - they were a bit hard. The beds were very comfortable and the bed linens and towels were all lovely. The house was very clean and we enjoyed it very much. Thank you. All my best. Irene

Owner's Response: Hi Irene, Thank you for the nice review! I wonder what happened to the blenders I had about 3 of them. Will buy some..And regarding the pillows, I am buying new ones every 3 months, maybe I choose some hard ones, will replace them soon. Thank you for telling me about these things, it helps me a lot! Sincerely, Art

Many golf courses around , private or public. Tennis too. Beautiful parks. Hundreds of restaurants you can choose from. Yet the property very quiet, tranquil, private. This gated house located at the end of the street on the top of the hill. Even your cars are on a gated long driveway.

Other Activities: You will find a lot of place to shop, go down to the ocean boating,or fishing, or just get a suntan..Golf courses are all over, tennis too. Hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains, lot's of beautiful trails. Or you can just walk around the neighborhood, look at celebrities' homes.

Ski: Skiing is excellent around Los Angeles, in the mountains. The closest one is about 1 hr. of drive from the house.
