About Lloyd Kurtz

Lloyd Kurtz has lived in this house since 1998. He is a licensed contractor and enjoys gardening, traveling, photography and telling jokes (sometimes some really good ones!).

Lloyd Kurtz purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Lloyd Kurtz chose Studio City

This property is a 1920's Tudor style home. Legend has it that the house was built by Mr. Lankershim himself, of whom Lankershim Blvd was named after. Lankershim helped to develop the San Fernando Valley in the 1920's and 30's. The movie Chinatown with Jack Nicholsen basically portrays Lankershim's story,

What makes this apartment unique

What make this such a great neighborhood is the proximity to all of the fabulous shopping and dining that Ventura Blvd is famous for. It is quiet and safe as well as being a fabulous walking area with panoramic views; there is a reason the stars live around here.

Great location! Gorgeous Apartment.

Lloyd was very pleasant and helpful. The apartment was very clean with a luxurious bathroom. We enjoyed sitting on the porch overlooking a nice garden with a beautiful view! Very convenient location next to Ventura Blvd. and close to Universal

Studios. We highly recommend staying here!

Lloyd was great, at our beckon call if needed. Cute space with everything we needed. Close to Millennium Dance Complex, universal studios, Runyon Canyon Park and North Hollywood, all places we enjoyed. We’ll hopefully get to stay again.

Perfect location and beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I recently stayed for 5 nights and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Lloyd was extremely helpful, and was accessible if we needed him for anything. The apartment was IMPECCABLY clean! I was very impressed with both this property and the experience with VRBO. We will absolutely be staying in this property again in the future.

Best idea EVER! Better experience than any hotel.

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, clean, quiet and private. Centrally located, perfect for day trips and especially if you are visiting Universal studios. Lloyd met us on check in, gave us some great advice on where to go and how to get there. Reserved parking spot on the street. Beautiful grounds. There are lots of steps, being on a hillside, if you can't climb steps this isn't the place for you. The best advice Lloyd gave us, take an Uber! We had never done this, he explained how, we downloaded the Uber app, and for $6 (each way, $12 total) we had a ride to Universal studios! It cost more than that to park your car at Universal, and we didn't have to worry about parking or traffic, we were dropped off and picked up right at the gate! It was awesome. Next time I come to SoCal, this is the place, no question. Thanks Lloyd and thanks HomeAway!
