"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.

Great quirky home! Fun Hollywood house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfectly situated home not far from Universal Studios. Easy short drive to the parking structure. Quiet neighborhood. Clean home. Older home, but it is a fun place to stay. Better for smaller groups, we had 6 and fit ok. Home is a great example of a Hollywood bungalow, with additions but a lot of original appliances and fixtures. I would recommend it if the size works for your needs.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We contacted Richard regarding a place to stay because we had a death in the family and had to travel to CA for the funeral. He responded immediately and we were able to stay there without any issues. The house is lovely. It was spacious enough for 7 people. Actually 9 people could stay there comfortably. Everything you need is within a 5 mile radius. The air conditioner worked like a breeze kept the house very comfortable and being from AZ that is always a bonus. Richard was kind, gracious, efficient and polite. The neighborhood felt safe and although the freeway is not that far away, it could NOT be heard from the house. Televisions in each bedroom and WiFi was provided. We would highly recommend Angelino's and H. Salt Fish and chips to eat if you want spot on great food. We will let others know about this hidden gem and hope to visit some of his other properties as well. You

WON'T be disappointed. Gracias Richard!!

Everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for vacation and had no idea what to expect really. The house was just what we needed. The location is amazing. Other than the day we went to the beach (about a 45 min drive) all of the tourist type activities we wanted to see or do were within 5-25 minutes away. We didn't even have to get on the freeway most of the time. Grocery store, coffee shops, restaurants all very close. The neighborhood was quiet and we felt safe. Richard was amazing to work with. He communicated very quickly any time I had a question both leading up to the trip and while we were there. We had 3 adults and 3 kids and had plenty of room. Thank you so much for everything Richard.
