Guestbook comments from the owner

July 18, 2011



Thanks Debbie for a wonderful stay at Casa Colinas. The house was perfect for our family of five, including three teens who enjoyed the view as much as we did. We found everything we needed and the privacy was a treat after long days in town. We hope to visit LA again and will certainly make Casa Colinas our first priority for hospitality! Thanks for everything.

We are already planning to return!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently with our sons during their college breaks. The four of us LOVED it here! In the morning we had our coffee leisurely on the terrace; it was so relaxing that it was hard to get out the door. On our last night, we had our farewell dinner outside. The views are outstanding. Debbie's place is meticulous and roomy. Runyon Canyon is a short hike away through lovely neighborhoods. My husband and I are already planning a return trip - perhaps to compete in the LA Marathon!

Peace Above the Fray

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our time in this peaceful home with phenomenal views! Loved seeing all the lights at night and waking up and having coffee on the deck. Within walking distance to Runyon Canyon Park, which was a highlight of our stay and Universal Studios is a short distance away. Highly recommend.

Thanks Debbie for sharing your home!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa Colinas. The home was very nicely kept and very functional for our family of four. The views were incredible. The home has wonderful character. Debbie was very helpful. We can vouch that the furnace keeps the home cozy, as it was quite cool in February 2017. The second shower downstairs via the outside stairs would be more useful in typical Southern California weather, but the one shower (very nice) was plenty for our family. We enjoyed the TV in the living room. There were plenty of towels and linens.

It only takes a few minutes to drive down the hill and into the Universal Studios’ parking. Universal Studios’ parking allows in/out privileges once you’ve paid for the day, so we could run back to Casa Colinas and return to the park without paying for parking twice. The nice thing about the cool weather was that we didn’t have to wait in line at the rides in Universal Studios! We rode the Harry Potter Forbidden Journey ride six times.

We enjoyed the views from Mulholland Drive and went to a Wheel of Fortune taping at Sony Studios. After driving in all the CA traffic, we welcomed returning to Casa Colinas high up in the Hollywood Hills away from it all, as compared to a hotel on some busy boulevard.

Our one suggestion is possibly a new mattress for the hide-a-bed, or possibly provide an air mattress in lieu of the hide-a-bed. Our son slept on it with no problems, but he can sleep anywhere.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your wonderful review Michelle. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Colinas and thank you for great suggestion. I will buy an air mattress this weekend. You and your family were guests. You're welcome back anytime.

Perfect, amazing, cozy, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect location for all that Hollywood has to offer. Universal Studios, Griffith Park and Observatory, Hollywood Blvd, Sunset Blvd, Beverly Hills, all no more than a 15 minute drive even with holiday traffic. The house itself is secluded in Hollywood Hills away from all the hustle and bustle of the downtown. It has all the necessities that our 5 member family needed plus European charm and oh, so cozy. We would definitely recommended it and would love to come back again.
