POOL HEATING fee - October 1 - May 1. If you want the pool heated, there is an additional $500 charge fore the first week, then $50/day per day (booked) and I need two week's notice please. if you book the house for 30 days or more, pool heating is complimentary.


If you want to hire a chef, a house keeper, a personal trainer or ... , a notebook of domestic staff agencies has been created for your convenience.

FYI - Murphy's Law - Very often I get similar inquiries for bookings on similar dates: I don't hold reservations - so I will go with the first one who officially books the house. If you are serious and like the house - don't wait too long ...


Welcome to my home. Surrounded by century-old trees, decorated with a mixture of styles such as Belgian, Provencal, Japanese, Shaker, French Industrial, 60’s Design, English Traditional and Artist’s Loft, this unexpected 'resort-like' farmhouse is located in the heart of Brentwood (Los Angeles) just minutes away from Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, Bel Air, and Westwood ... not to mention 'Brentwood Village' where you will find charming shops and restaurants!

The house is located less than 5 miles from the beach, the heart of UCLA, Royce Hall, The Broad Stage Performing Arts Center, Temescal Gateway Park, Will Rogers State Historic Park and Polo Field, etc.

From swimming in the large pool to playing Petanque in the back yard, from biking or hiking in the canyons to visiting the neighbor’s horses, this property is made for cozy dinners and playing games with friends and family (some games include Uno, Chinese Checkers, Backgammon, Go, Taboo, Balderdash, Puzzles, Cards, and a few more). There are 8 sets of Petanque boules for you to use, as well as a few tennis rackets and tons of tennis ball (there are multiple free-access tennis courts around the city).

For the active types and professional athletes, you are minutes away from The Brentwood Country Club (Exclusive Golf Club), The Riviera Country Club (one of LA's oldest and most exclusive private golf/tennis club), Will Rogers Park (Polo brunch anyone?), and Mandeville Canyon Road which is LA's premier destination for bikers training for 'The Tour de France'.

Whether you are a photographer, a chef, a musician, an artist, an author, an architect, a designer, a film person, a stylist, an entrepreneur, a businessman, a family … this house – full of charm and “esprit” - will feed your inspiration. You’ll never want to leave.

Except for a very rare and occasional use of bleach, the house uses only non-toxic, eco-friendly and biodegradable cleaning products, as well as recycled paper products. And that goes for the garden as well. The only pesticides are ladybugs and snail-eating snails.

A whole-house water filter makes the water feel and taste delicious from any faucet.

Thieves and other organic and therapeutic essential oils are diffused in the house on a regular basis to keep the air clean. Thieves is a combination of essential oils that are highly antiviral, antiseptic, anti-fungus, antibacterial, anti-infectious and so forth.

Remote controls, phones, light switches, and doorknobs are cleaned w/ alcohol after each individual stay.

There is a professional massage table (and special sheets), two exercise balls, a vibrational machine, and a few other gadgets at your disposal ... (upon request).

There is wireless internet in the whole house, but if you prefer, it can be unplugged and there is a DSL cable in every room. There is a signal booster inside the house - but to be honest, cell phone signals are limited ... our provider is Spectrum, so maybe get a Spectrum temporary/travel geared signal enhancer while you are here?

There is a 32' Television in the living room ONLY, a multi-zone DVD player, Cable channels include HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, CNN, BRAVO, and all the basic cable channels such as E!, MTV, VH1, MSNBC, FOX, ON-DEMAND, etc...) and APPLE TV w/ Netflix & Hulu Plus.

1 BBQ available for your convenience. You'll just have to buy the charcoal ... (please do not use chemical fluids)

And more surprises ...

And don't forget to use my GUIDEBOOK! I've listed some of my favorite places in Los Angeles (and the list is growing!). Feedback welcome!

I'm looking forward to welcoming you in my own little 'LA sanctuary'. Petanque anyone?

House available for photo shoots, but not filming! Rates to be negotiated via Meyler & Co.

A graduation to remember

  • 5 of 5

We have family coming from all over America for our son's graduation from UCLA. Delphine was an excellent hostess as we were greeted with a wonderful cheese and bread tray. Her house was spectacular and exceeded our expectations. It was calm, relaxing and a great place for the family to hang out. The pool was an added bonus and Delphine's attention to detail made us feel like we were at home.

Serenity and style in Brentwood

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two young children spent one wonderful week at Delphine's home. Everything about the house is thoughtful, without being too precious. We felt like we were transported to some perfect combination of Southern California circa the 1960s and the French countryside. Delphine was a wonderful host -- greeted us with chocolates and a tour, then let us be other than answering any questions we had. Also, her guidebook to the area was a little gem.

Soulful, peaceful beautiful house. Conveniently located to everything. Loved the Farm Shop at Brentwood Country Mart, Santa Monica Farmer's Market, shopping in Brentwood Village and on Montana Ave. Great yoga classes at YogaWorks on Montana. Spinning classes at Soul Cycle in Santa Monica and Brentwood. Great hiking nearby. Will definitely return!

Scandinavian visitors

We have rented many houses, in many countries, over the years and have often been delighted by the experience. This, however, is the first time that we have been motivated to write a review. Our reason is quite simple: this house is so special that its praises simply need to be sung. In addition to a charming and discrete owner, this is a home - with every imaginable facility and equipment (even complimentary Nespresso!). Most important, though, is its soul: we have never slept so well, dined so peacefully and simply enjoyed being here. The explanation is rather obvious when you meet the owner and discover the thought, imagination and love which she has applied to creating this special dwelling. The calming spirit of her vision invades the mind and makes one feel relaxed and happy. On a practical note, the location is also perfect as a base to visit all LA's, and environs, sights. We have been blessed with perfect weather and now, sadly, leave - but invigorated by a tremendous ten days' stay and by memories which we will keep forever. (Or at least until we return - hopefully very soon!). Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for everything. Bettina and Arild.

Our experience at Brentwood artist farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

Our staying was really pleasant. Its a very quite house surrounded by vegetation that are ideal for those who really want to take a break from the noisy life and stressing city or labour environments.

You will feel very relaxed and comfortable.

Ideal for 8 people maximum, the only minimal drawback is the existence of only two bathrooms.

The owner seems rather tough with the rules of the house before you go, but after you go then you fully understand why: the house and all the contents are in extremely well condition, all you can find is perfect. You wont find any malfunction, dirty, etc, everything is perfect, thats why the owner wants it to be this way in the future.

Moreover, when we arrive near dinner time she had prepared for us a welcome dinner, that we really appreciate. Everything in the house is ready for you to use, whatever you want.

Finally, the surroundings are breathtaking.

Great experience ¡¡

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking such good care of the house. The house rules might seem strict but they are common sense and ultimately benefit everyone. I am so happy you all had a wonderful stay - it can be a leap of faith when you rent a house from across the world and wanted to make your experience better than you would have expected. I hope to host you again if you come to Los Angeles. It was wonderful meeting you all!
