Love the Pool
We enjoyed the house very much and was perfect for a family of 4 plus my mom. House was very clean and we were welcomed with fresh cut flowers around the house. Thought that was so thoughtful. Amenities were plenty and the house location was perfect. Not too far really from anything in LA. Kitchen was upgraded and was great if you like to cook. Even had a wok! The kids especially enjoyed the pool and we all enjoyed the hottub. Both were heated with no additional cost. Mom absolutely loved the garden and all those fresh citrus fruits that we could pick right off the trees!
The owners live in the back but we barely noticed them. But so glad we actually got to meet though because they were such nice people and so hospitable! We do this trek at least once a year so we would definitely not think twice about staying here again!
We had a great stay in Valley Village at this beautiful home. Very comfortable and would highly recommend!
Perfect, relaxing retreat
Our family of 4 recently stayed at the Hesby House, and couldn't have enjoyed it more! With 3 bedrooms, a well-appointed kitchen, and large family room, we had plenty of indoor space...not to mention the absolutely perfect backyard pool and spa. When first checking the place out online, I noticed numerous other reviews calling it a "peaceful oasis," and that's precisely what it is!
The location was a very pleasant surprise to us - super close to Universal, and the freeway to go right over the hill into Hollywood, or just south & west to Santa Monica/Venice - yet never any traffic noise or hustle & bustle in our quiet neighborhood.
Michael and Daphne couldn't have been better hosts: right nearby, yet invisible, unless you need them - in which case they were always quick to respond/help.
Although the pictures are spot-on, they still can't fully do justice to how wonderful a cottage oasis this was! We were there for 5 nights of our 10 in CA, and my wife, 2 teenage boys, and I didn't want to leave. LA is a big, busy metropolis, but coming home to this great house & neighborhood, each evening, was the perfect counterbalance.
Just a great place that I'm so glad we found!
The Roe family are perfect guests, easy to communicate with, and treated our home as if it were their own. We'd most definitely welcome them back!
A Great Stay at a Quiet and Peaceful Oasis
We were very impressed with our stay at Hesby House. It is a beautiful and spacious house that nicely accommodated 2 adults and 2 children. The light and airy space is well-appointed for those who want to enjoy the house and relax.
The kitchen is well stocked with all manner of utensils which made it easy for us to prepare meals at the house. We enjoyed eating those meals outdoors in the lovely backyard. The backyard is lush with beautiful plants and flowers. Birds often visit. It was a very quiet and peaceful oasis. We also enjoyed having the pool and hot tub which were both well taken care of.
Building on the peaceful nature of the house, the house and surrounding neighborhood were very quiet during all times of day.
Ample linens and towels were provided, and it was nice to have a washer and dryer available for use during our trip.
The location is close to restaurants, food stores and drug stores. They are either a short drive or, in some cases, a 15 minute walk. The house's location was perfectly fine for our needs. We were going to diverse parts of LA and surrounding areas, so this house, as it was a short drive to the 101 freeway, fit our needs. Most LA journeys involve much driving and some traffic, so that was to be expected.
The hosts, Michael and Daphne were extremely helpful, kind and always prompt in their communication. Any time we had a question, they were very responsive. They were in the other house on the property during our stay, but we had total privacy and only encountered them if we had a specific question or reason.
The Hesby House certainly added to the quality of our stay and the enjoyment of our vacation. We would happily stay there again. From the house, to the backyard, to the surrounding area, to the gracious hosts, it was a wonderful experience. Thank you, Michael and Daphne!
Andrea and her family were perfect guests and delightful people.
We would certainly love to have them return at any time to Hesby House.

The 4 of us (3 generations) has such a wonderful time in the Hesby House. It is lovely and comfortable. I enjoyed looking at pictures of the family of a cherished time past. This home was filled with love and it shows.
The garden area has lush English gardens and a lovely pool and hot tub.
We so appreciated Daphne and Michael’s easy nature. They were in a cottage behind us but made us feel as if their home was our own. They came running when we needed help but otherwise gave us our space.
The location is perfect. Convenient to everything but in a lovely neighborhood.
We would return in a heartbeat 💗
Thank you so much Kirbys!
Beautiful, quiet home
Our family enjoyed everything about our vacation stay at the well-kept Hesby House. The location is fantastic and the owners are attentive while also mindful of offering privacy to visitors. Would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone contemplating an LA area stay. Don't know if we'll ever make it back, but will dream about staying here again.
Valley Village is an enclave centered between Studio City, Sherman Oaks and Burbank that is perfectly located for everything Los Angeles has to offer.
Established in 1939, it is now home to musicians, film makers, actors and writers who are drawn to the quiet streets, charming homes, easy access to studios, the shopping and restaurants along Ventura Boulevard and the ability to become lost in nature on the trails in the Santa Monica Mountains that are just minutes to the south.
This is the perfect location for going to different parts of Los Angeles: the freeways to downtown, the beaches and other attractions are close by. And the canyon roads - famed Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Coldwater Canyon - offer a beautiful way of getting to Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.
