Los Angeles

A magical home with beautiful views and an inviting interior:The perfect getaway from the busy city.

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée and I had a wonderful two night stay at Mark and Beth’s property. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood in the hills and is the perfect escape from the busy Los Angeles city scene. Once you step inside the house, you are greeted with an elegant and inviting home that is completed with comfortable furniture and unique art pieces. The kitchen is a dream for every cook, with all the tools you could possibly need to create a delicious meal. Each bedroom has a unique theme to it, with the master bedroom taking home the crown of the most cozy room I’ve ever stayed in to date. The back yard opens up a window to a whole new world. As you step outside, you have a direct view of the Santa Monica pier on one side, and Temscal Canyon mountains on the other. Beautiful floral arrangements decorate the edges of a spacious green area among orange, grapefruit, and lemon trees. There were no issues with any appliance, furniture, etc. except the bath in the master bedroom didn’t get very hot. Overall, the entire home has a magical feeeling to it and we had a fantastic time hiking in the nearby mountains, watching the sunset from the yard, cooking fresh dinner, and watching movies from the pull out TV in the bedroom.

Perfect Vacation Spot For Families and Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our family (my wife and I and our 12 yo, 10 yo and 8 yo daughters) spent our Spring Break visiting LA. We wanted a quiet place to stay for the first half of our visit and wanted a location that would be closer to the beach with a view of the ocean. We found this home and immediately wanted to book it as it was a perfect location for Santa Monica, Malibu and some of the sights on that side of LA (Getty Museum, La Brea Tar Pits, Santa Monica Pier). We were pleasantly surprised as the home exceeded our expectations that we had based on the VRBO pictures. It is furnished very well, with plenty of storage space and living space. The property itself is very nice; my kids really enjoyed having fruit trees on the grounds.

We base our stay on three things: cleanliness, function and owner interaction. This house rates a 5 out of 5 stars in all three areas. The house was clean throughout with the grounds manicured very well. Everything functioned as explained and we had no issues with any of the systems or equipment. And Mark and Beth were wonderful to work with, even with me forgetting the entry code and texting Mark the first evening and with Mark working with us on getting some things that we left behind returned. They also returned the deposit in a very timely manner, something else that we place importance on.

All in all, if you are in the LA area visiting family or for a vacation, I would highly recommend this home. It was a great experience and certainly enhanced our overall visit to LA. Thanks, Mark and Beth, for making it available.

Special home in a beautiful part of Los Angeles

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2 months this summer at Mark and Beth's childhood home and had a wonderful stay. The house is charming, welcoming, clean and as others have mentioned in their reviews, Mark and Beth are very accommodating owners and truly want you to enjoy your stay.

The location is one of the best in Los Angeles -- if you are seeking a retreat from the madness of other parts of LA; the views of Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and, of course, the ocean are just lovely. We enjoyed countless meals on the patio enjoying the perfect summer weather and the flora and fauna around the house.

Easy 10 minute drive to a great, rarely crowded beach: Will Rogers.

25 minute drive up the coast to Malibu

20 minutes into downtown Santa Monica

The great room/dining room/kitchen area is one large open space and is a great place to "live". I spent many hours there as we had a new baby that spent her 6th and 7th month of life in this home. She learned to sit up, crawl and stand up this summer and never once was I concerned about her safety (baby proofing). The home comes nearly baby proofed!

All in all a great stay!

Great Home, Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best homes I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. This home with it's spectacular views exceeded all expectations. There is nothing you could ak for that this home doesn't have. The owners, Mark nd Beth, are very accommodating and make sure that the house has everything anyone could possible need. It has plenty of towels, sheets, soap, toilet paper, dishes, small blankets to wrap up in it you sit outside at night, spices, kitchen equipment, etc. You truly just need to unpack your clothes and call it home. The home is located in a mountainous, residential area in the picturesque quaint town of Pacific Palisades. Very close to the beach, Santa Monica, Malibu, and West LA. The view is drop dead gorgeous. The ocean is breath taking and makes the drive to and from the house very enjoyable.

From the initial discussions/e mails with Mark leading up to our stay, we knew we were dealing with an experienced and courteous homeowner and someone who was extremely organized and considerate as it pertained to providing a visit with all the comforts of home. Mark and Beth have done an amazing job of creating a unique ambiance with the furnishings, appliances, art, electronics, etc, all tastefully done with quality and convenience at every turn. The home oozes both class and warmth, a rare combination. The variety of useful features: Ocean and Mountain views, 2 fire places, cook quality kitchen.

The house is beautifully decorated, and very confortable to stay at. We used the house with 2 bedrooms and an office but they will place a third bedroom in the office if you need it. There is plenty of storage space, with built ins in all the bedrooms.

Between my family and friends I don't think there was a time that someone wasn't on a lounge chair reading or chatting and admiring the view. The property is wonderful to relax nd enjoy the quiet away from the busy crowded city of Los angeles. Deer visited several times during our stay to eat the plants in the garden, and there are delicious abundance of lemons, oranges and grapefruit trees to pick from in the yard. We ate at home most nights and gave the gourmet kitchen with its 6 burners stove a workout. The kitchen is a cooks dream and there is also a grill on the patio.

The neighbor feels safe, and we enjoyed hiking the trails to the waterfall down the street. The trail is the upper end of Temescal Park, and it a beautiful hike in the Santa Monica Mountains.
