Summer trip! 2017

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best travel experiences I have ever had. The Sarah house was amazing!!!! It was clean and spacious. It was just perfect with great patio!!!! The location was perfect and very close to Universal Studios and Hollywood, the neighborhood was very nice and quiet. I would suggest this rental to anyone traveling to that part of L.A!!!! Lastly Richard was great he made the whole experience great! I looked at lots of homes before booking this Richard was very responsive and pleasant to work with!! I would definitely rent that home again if I'm ever in the area.

"At home" in this home.

  • 3 of 5

While not posh, we felt at ease in this comfortable but slightly worn home. "Slightly worn" was good for our crowd, as we had a 4 year old and a 6 year old and the it was pretty kid safe and durable. The fact that it had no soap and little T.P. Attests to it being manage by a man....little tip for next guests. The owner was difficult to contact, as he was out of the country and one phone (the number we had) apparently was non operational. Lastly, we were getting a little worried about our deposit return, as it took longer than we expected. We left the place as we found it, which is our policy....

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! Its greatly appreciated as it gives me an opportunity to clarify certain items to future guests. FYI, if I'm not reachable via cell phone due to being out of town on vacation its always best to email me. Expect an immediate response And a quick solution! With all due respect to this review, given that the house is a 1940's vintage home I've kept it to its original Hollywood charm and appeal by preserving the original hardwood parquet floors, pastel tiles and porcelin sinks and faucets; as well as preserving the original kitchen cabinets and vintage O'keefe and Merrit stove! While some may view it as "worn" many others might appreciate its original charm and deco decor (With the exception of the double paned sound proof windows recently installed). BTW, to all future guests reading this post, it is always very important to read my rental agreement because it clearly covers many potential concerns, such as, when deposits are returned and whether or not bath soap or shampoo are provided. They are not. As a policy, I always leave at least one roll of TP in each bathroom and liquid hand soap, one paper towel roll, and dish detergent for arriving guests; thereafter its the travelers responsibility to re-supply. Unfortunately, many guests sign agreements without "all the parties" reading the terms & conditions or the "house rules" prior to arrival .... Happy Travels Everyone! Richard

Great location and charming house!

  • 4 of 5

My family of 7 (4 adults and 3 teenagers) stayed 5 nights here over Thanksgiving break while we visited Universal Studios, Disneyland and family. The house was great with plenty of room. The extra shower in the big bathroom was awesome! Because we were gone from early morning until late each day, we weren't able to take advantage of the large patio area, but in the summer I imagine it would be really nice.
