Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This home was in the perfect location to walk to almost everywhere in downtown Whittier. Close to excellent restaurants. Also a short drive to our son's wedding venue. Roomy home. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped, all appliances worked great. Home and amenities were as described.

overall we were impressed a with the property, plenty of space photos on line was a true impression

  • 5 of 5

Bill the owner was very helpful and passed on useful information which helped on our days out. On the down side the tiles in the kitchen and formal dinning room needed a good clean.

If we return to LA in the future we would use Bill and his property's again

Very homely and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We came to visit LA from England and rented Bill's house. Everything we needed was provided and instructions were so informative we did not have to worry about anything. There was a blackboard in tbe house recommending local restaurants and best places to visit. You will need a car for shopping and supermarkets. Good local restaurants within walking distance. A sat nav is a must and makes life easier especially if your not a US residence as it is not easy to get to grips with the road system. We had a super time and would stay in Whittier again.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house met all of our needs and then some! We had two families staying in the house with kids. There was plenty of space for all and even extra rollaway beds and air mattresses we did not need to use. Excellent location in Whittier, close to shops and restaurants. The kitchen was large enough to have a lot of people cooking and there were two dining tables in the house. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch every morning. Overall, it was excellent. We enjoyed our stay!

AMAZING HOME!

  • 5 of 5

LOVED IT! It’s a whole lot bigger than it looks. Perfect and Gorgeous! Great Location! We were a group of 7; 5 adults and 2 children, we all had a bed to sleep in no one had to share. It’s was very clean, well equipped and stocked. We never used the A/C just opened the windows to let the cool breeze in---very wonderful, can’t do that in Texas. The Neighborhood is very quiet we enjoyed the porch and walking distance to Starbucks…..yeah! And other shops and restaurants of course. Above all; we would highly recommend, it was wonderful just to have a place to call “HOME.”

Perfect Rental Home for Our Group!

  • 5 of 5

Bill's rental home was everything one could hope for in a rental home! It was clean, very spacious, decorated very nicely, well equipped and stocked, and easily accommodated our group of 10. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and the home is located within walking distance of downtown Whittier, with many shops and restaurants. Although we were out and about during most of our stay, it was nice to come back to the "home", as it was a great place to relax and unwind from the day, whether it was inside or outside on the front porch or backyard patio. The home is nicely decorated and well equipped and truly felt like a home rather than just a rental place. The kitchen is very spacious, stocked well with basic amenities, and the dining room table was very nice and large. The bedrooms were also large in size and the beds were good and comfortable. Overall, it was a great rental home and Bill is very friendly and easy to work with. Our family would gladly stay at Bill's home again and we all highly recommend it.
