About the property

Like new renovations throughout in 2013

A delightfully remodeled 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home in a quiet family neighborhood. Sparkling new pool, private yard and lush landscaping including a 'help yourself garden' of veggies and herbs to compliment the large and fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Conveniently located with easy access to freeways and all the attractions LA has to offer. Lots of great restaurants and 2 shopping malls just minutes away. Wireless Internet and Satellite TV in living room and all bedrooms.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Christmas and New Years, and it was fantastic. The location was perfect for all of our day trips. The house was great, kitchen was excellent. 6 of us and a baby for 10 days and never felt like we were on top of one another. Helen was also great in making all of the accommodations and recommendations. Highly recommend.

The perfect house for our family gathering

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this property and the adjacent guest cottage which we also rented for our family group. The home is in a very nice and convenient neighborhood, has everything you could possible need or want for a comfortable stay and entertaining at the house. The home is beautifully appointed and working with Helen was such a wonderful experience - professional, attentive and thoughtful. Upon our arrival a basket of fruit and snacks was there, such a nice touch. We were there in mid December during an unusual cold snap and enjoyed the open gas fireplace during the chilly mornings. It was as close to a real wood burning fireplace as you could get. I'm sure the backyard rose garden is lovely during the warm weather and I would definitely rent this property again.

Bright and Spacious!

  • 4 of 5

We found the Pool Home to be very clean, bright and spacious. The backyard was beautifully maintained and the pool was nice and clean. The greenery and fence provided a very private space. The customer service was excellent. Any inquiries were answered immediately. The water and snacks provided were much appreciated. We also appreciated all of the information regarding grocery shopping, etc., that was provided to us. Many supplies, such as baggies, tissues, paper towels, trash bags, etc., were provided, which is not always the case when using short term rentals. We also needed a crib, high chair and cot, that were provided. This is a good value for the price. We only had a three night stay so can't really recommend restaurants, etc., nearby. I would recommend the property to friends and relatives but would advise that there was loud music for long periods during the afternoons (possibly from the rear side of the property.) We did not call to report that so possibly could have been handled. We recommend that you consider the option offered to heat the pool, to get maximum use. Also recommend that if you plan to run or walk in area, take a quick drive around to plot your course. There are some beautiful properties and friendly residents with some very run down properties and unfriendly pets mixed in. There was no problem with walks to Starbucks and other local businesses. Overall, we had a very good experience.

We were amaze by how the house look like. The house looks just like the pictures if not even better.

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing, the house has everything you need and more. We were able to cook in, there was everything in the kitchen that you need to cook with. We travel with 2 children and the pool was a plus. The kids enjoy every minute of the pool and so did the adult. The pool was great especially for a hot day running around town. Helen and her staff was great. She kept us posted all the way until our vacation started. Thank you Helen for making our vacation a memorable one.

They thought of everything

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Sherman Oaks pool home on a mini vacation with my family. The house was very clean and well kept. The pictures actually look just like the actual house so everyone was happy about that. The little extras made everything come together. Everything was great and would love to stay here again.

Sweet deal, sweet lady

  • 5 of 5

It's always gratifying to get more than you anticipate. In this case, we got much more. On a side street away from the busy Van Nuys traffic, in a quiet neighborhood highlighted with mature trees, this little gem nestles in among shrubbery, flowers, and bushes, landscaped into a cozy and enchanting ambience, replete with swimming pool, barbecue,, and shaded sitting area.

Inside the house one begins to discover all the delightful details. We saw a bouquet of flowers, fresh fruit, little snacks and staple items in the fridge. This renovated and spotless accommodation has tile in the bathroom that someone has taken the time to create artistically within the fine craftsmanship. A beautiful bookcase adds to the atmosphere as well as extras that are not essential to a stay, but just give the place a homey quality.

The house is perfectly laid out for guests to be able to stay separately and privately, yet have easy access to the common rooms. The bathrooms are attractive and roomy. The master bath has a big luxious bathtub ad separate shower. The kitchen is large and easy to move around and has everything you need.

You won't go wrong with this sweet find, and when all is said and done, you will remember most of all how warmly and professionally you are hosted by property manager, Helen Walker. She was genuinely concerned that our stay be not only comfortable, but actually become a great memory for us as well.

This is a deal folks, worth every penny. I stay in vacation rentals several times a year in my travels all over the country and definitely know the difference in the quality of these experiences. You can uncross your fingers when considering this excellent home, this is what you are looking for.
