About Scott Nell

This was the first home my wife and I (Tatiana & Scott) bought soon after we were married - we love this property, and are excited to share it with visitors from abroad - we both have an entertainment background, and Tatiana now has the honor of being a Stay at Home Mom to our 3 wonderful children (another is already out of the house), while Scott brings home the bacon as a Luxury Estates Residential Realtor, working hard each day so he can get home to spend time with the family.

Why Scott Nell chose Studio City

So close to Universal Studios and Hollywood! Perfect for entertainment industry folks as it is close to the major studios like Disney, Warner Brothers, Universal, etc.. If you are visiting family, we are in Toluca Lake, and border Studio City, Burbank, Universal City, Hollywood! The Aqua Vista is as cute as can be, cozy, fully furnished, tons of Spanish character, and was put together with loving care by my wife (Tatiana). Also close to the best theme parks, transportation, all Hollywood has to offer, restaurants, and so much more.

Magical Week at the Aqua Vista House

  • 5 of 5

The main house provided the perfect perch for our son's magical wedding in Laurel Canyon, fifteen minutes away. The home was comfortable, with excellent water pressure, heating, and cooling, and the thoughtful owners took extra pains to provide some baking equipment for my cookie creations. Although the neighborhood lacked aesthetic appeal, it was generally quiet and friendly, with convenient access to the highway, grocery stores, and our guests' hotel -- The Beverly Garland. We especially appreciated the free curbside parking . The nicest feature of the rental is the lovely courtyard, radiating sunshine during the day and twinkling with string lights at night. No need to seek out restaurants when we could dine under the stars on our patio. One suggestion: For guests staying less than a month, the washer and dryer should be free.

Really great stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great experience. The only complaint was the person renting the unit upstairs took a shower every morning at 4:30 and it woke us up as it was directing overhead. Didn’t sleep great. Other than that it was nice.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us!! Just to clarify, there is no unit directly above the main house, no common walls, and this is the first time anyone has ever commented about noise. That said, now that we received this comment, we will do our best to make sure it doesn’t happen again :)

Beautiful home--if only air conditioning had worked!

  • 3 of 5

My family and I loved this house, the proximity to Universal Studios, and the awesome breakfast place down the corner (hint--on weekends, walk down, put your name on list, and relax in the living room until the text arrives telling you your table is ready)! Kitchen was extremely well equipped, though notice that the only coffee maker was a Keurig would have been helpful.

Two challenges we experienced--1) the house was extremely hot when we go in so we set the air conditioning to 65. Apparently if set to under 72 the compressor freezes over. This would have been a great note to put over the thermostat. The air conditioning did not work for the rest of our trip, and it was tough on the 95 degree day we had not to have AC. Especially tough given the window in the master bedroom was nailed shut! 2) The beds are extremely uncomfortable. My sweet husband ceded the couch to me as the windows in the living room could open and the bed was killing my back. Not the most romantic vacation--but heck, we have two kids anyway!

Overall, I think we would rent again--but would want reassurance that the AC was operational before hand.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Aqua Vista! The location was perfect for our LA adventures. The house was very clean and beautifully decorated. The large table was ideal for our evenings of card playing and puzzles after busy days. Thank you for sharing it with us! We left a few notes on the kitchen chalkboard, but loved all the special details! Hope to visit again!
