About Ravi

Software engg

Ravi purchased this house in 2015

Why Ravi chose Sylmar

This property is just far enough from downtown to have a bit of a rural feel and yet, downtown is only 20 minutes away. I have much more space. I can see the stars at night from my hot tub. My favorite attraction, Disneyland is just a short 40 minutes away. Universal studios and six flags, my other two favorite attractions, are only 10 minutes away. I like being close to town but out of the traffic jams, smog, and hustle of the city.

What makes this house unique

I had nine main criteria that the house must have. 1) one level ranch style, I don't like stairs; 2) close to downtown: 3) large lot: 4) swimming pool and hot tub; 5) Shade trees; 6) No carpet, I have allergies and carpet holds a lot of dirt an allergens; 7) lots of parking, I hate to pay for parking; 8) Secluded and quiet area: and finally 9) Close to all my favorite attractions. I did not think I would ever find one that met all my criteria............

I finally found the house that met all my criteria in 2009 and bought it immediately. I have never regretted it. Great neighborhood, Great neighbors, Dead end street so no traffic. Secluded and quiet. Huge, double sized lot. If you like my criteria, you will love my house.

A perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house is worthy of the rent you pay.the locality was very peaceful and is close to costco and many other stores in case you need to buy anything.the backyard is what will score the most on this property.the pool, hot water tub and the play area for the kids stand out.if u are looking for a vacation house in a quiet place and still close to other attractions, this is the one.Before you buy any kitchen stuff for the stay, better take a look at the stuff in the house first as almost everything is present in the kitchen.the house is well maintained and well equipped to support a crowd as big as 15 people.

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

This house was great. It had everything we needed...towels, kitchen utensils, bedding, pillows, etc. The owner was easily reached with questions or for assistance. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Cali. Easy in and out and just 25 minutes to tourist locations. Right down the street from restaurants and grocery stores.

A great house for a group

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this house with a group of high school students on a school trip. We loved having the room with all of the bunk beds; it was perfect for the students. The outdoor space was beautiful and would be great for entertaining. We used the deck and hot tub each night. It was too cold for us to use the pool, but it looked like it would be great on a hot day.

The kitchen was spacious and had a lot of cooking utensils, but it would have been nice to have some plastic storage containers for leftovers. We cooked breakfast each morning and it was a struggle to figure out what to do with our leftover food. It would have also been nice to have plastic wrap and tin foil available.

Also, the listing said that hairdryers were provided, but we weren't able to find those anywhere.

My complaints are pretty minor issues, so if you're looking for a spacious home with lots of different living spaces, this is a good fit.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

We always book vrbo and the this home was cozy and had all the amenities you'll need to have a relaxing vacation. Ravi and Edith we're so helpful and made our stay more enjoyable. No hassle at all.

We were going to Universal studios to celebrate my daughters sweet 16, and the house is about 20min away, super easy. We will definitely stay here again. Loved how the owner was so helpful to accommodate our needs. Thank you Ravi for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Great Property & Quick Communication with Owner

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing property! We had about 10 people come over and were able to celebrate my 40th birthday in style. 8 people stayed the night and we weren't even close to filling up all the beds. Every question was answered quickly by the owner. I wish the pool could have been heated a bit so we could swim at night, but it was refreshing by day and the hot tub was great by night. I wish the hot tub jets wouldn't keep turning off though, but we were in there a while. We grilled Tri-tip on the grill and used all the on-site utensils. The house and backyard were so large, we didn't feel cramped at all. I accidentally left a couple of items at the property and the property owner allowed us to pick up the items the next day at our time of choosing. Would definitely recommend!!!

Other Attractions & Activities:

Below is a link to a custom Google Map that shows over 80 of the most popular attraction near my home. Use it as you decide which property best suits you needs for this trip.

Click on the below link or cut and paste it into you address bar to see many of the local attractions.

Listed are over 80 of the top attractions near the home. The neat thing is you can click on any one of them and then my home and it will give you exact distance and directions to that attraction and the home.


You can also do a quick search for a specific attraction or activity you are looking for. For example if you want to visit Walt Disney Studios put “Walt Disney Studios” in the google map search line it will search for Walt Disney Studios and give you exact directions from the this vacation house to the studios i.e. 16.8 miles and it will take you 20 minutes to get there. You can find any activity or specific location this way. How great is that!
