GUEST ACCESS

My property managers Jason and Amie will greet you upon check-in to grant you access, give you keys and a garage door opener, and provide you with an in-depth tour of the house.

==========

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS

My property managers Jason and Amie live 5 miles away in Hollywood. They can be reached via text or phone, and can come to the property with 30 minutes notice to attend to any urgent matters.

My company has offices in nearby Sherman Oaks, and my assistants are also available to attend to urgent matters. I live in Europe, and can be reached via phone or email.

==========

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

In the early 60s, the Los Angeles River, which provides the north border of the neighborhood, flooded. For weeks, residents could only access their homes by boat, bringing about the neighborhood's name: The Island.

Though a risk of the river flooding no longer exists, The Island maintains a secluded, private feel for its residents. While a convenient 15-minute walk to Universal Studios and the Universal City Metro Station, and a short drive to the junction of the 101, 134, and 170 freeways, The Island is made secluded by the river bordering it to the north and the ample-sized South Weddington Park to the south and west.

Many of our neighbors are in the entertainment industry, and enjoy The Island for both its tranquil atmosphere and convenience to all LA has to offer.

==========

GETTING AROUND

The Universal City/Studio City Red Line Metro station is a 15-minute walk from the house.

The Metro station is one stop from the Heart of Hollywood at Hollywood/Highland, home to the Dolby Theater, Mann's Chinese Theater, Walk of Fame, El Capitan Theater, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and much more.

The Metro station also provides a gateway to Downtown L.A. (Staples Center), Santa Monica (Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach), Wilshire Boulevard, LAX, and much more.

The house is less than 5 minutes driving from the junction of the 101, 134, and 170 freeways.

The house is a 5-minute drive from the nearest supermarket and shopping center, as well as the Toluca Lake shopping district on Riverside Drive.

The house is a 10-minute drive from Warner Brothers and Disney Studios, as well as Studio City's shopping district on Ventura Boulevard.

The house is a 15-minute drive from Burbank Bob Hope International Airport.

==========

HOUSE RULES

1) NOISE

Quiet hours at the property are as follows: Sunday-Thursday, 10PM - 7AM; Friday-Saturday, 11PM - 7AM.

Once these hours begin, please bring all outside activities indoors (including all activity in, by, or around the pool) and refrain from excessively loud music or noises that may permeate beyond the walls of the house.

We live in the suburbs, and share walls with the homes of several families, and a woman in a guest house with very thin walls. WE HAVE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR VIOLATION OF OUR QUIET HOURS. Any noise complaint we receive is grounds for immediate eviction and a refund on the remaining nights on your reservation.

2) PARKING

As many as two cars fit in the garage, and as many as one fit on the driveway. Please do not break anything in the garage or block the sidewalk in parking; the latter is subject to a ticket from the city.

Per city rules, parking on our street is not allowed Monday-Friday 8AM - 6PM. Additional parking is available at South Weddington Park, just south of the property.

3) POOL OPERATION

Please turn off the pool heater and jets after usage. Leaving the heater on causes the pool's chlorine to dissipate much more rapidly, resulting in water that's murky, filmy, and unfit for swimming. Leaving on the jets can cause the pool and spa to drain completely overnight!

Any party that leaves the pool in a condition unsafe for swimming will be assessed a $100 post-stay fee.

4) SMOKING

Though smoking is allowed on the pool deck and front patio, it is NOT allowed at any time inside the house.

Any party leaving behind odors from smoking will be subject to post-stay fees not already included in the rental rate and cleaning fee.

5) PETS

Though pets are permitted to stay at the house, we ask that you pick up after them. A dog bed in the lounge area is available for use.

Any party leaving behind odors or stains from pets or any other pet-related damage will be subject to post-stay fees not already included in the rental rate and cleaning fee.

6) LAST NOTE

As long as our neighbors don't hear you, nothing is broken or damaged, and nothing illegal occurs on the property, you'll generally be okay. Have fun, relax, and make yourself at home. :)

About Phillip Roth

I live in Bulgaria where I have a movie studio where I produce films for Sony, Universal, Fox, Lifetime Channel and many other channels and companies around the world. If you look up my name in under Phillip J. Roth you can see the list of over the 100 movies I have produced, directed and written to date. My passion is skiing and I still compete on an international level in Eastern Europe where I am the only American racing and representing the United States in Eastern zero percent. Some of these ski races have taken me to Serbia, Turkey, Bosnia, Greece, Romania and I was even invited to compete in Iran but was prevented to attend because the Iranians wouldn't give me a visa, but my team did go and had a very interesting time skiing some very challenging mountains. My other passion Is wake-boarding in which I do mainly on a local lake called Iskra near Sofia, a local cable park or in the Greek isles. I am married to Ekaterina Roth, a former model and is a 3x winner of Mrs. Bulgaria, representing Bulgaria in various international contests in Orlando, Palm Springs and The Domican Republic. We have 2 girls 8 and 3 and I have a son and daughter 16 and 25. All were raised and went to high school here in Bulgaria. We rarely get back to the states so I hope you enjoy the house. We have a lot of great memories.

Phillip Roth purchased this house in 1994

Why Phillip Roth chose San Fernando Valley

This is the closest vacation home to the entrance of Universal Studios. It's in the center of all LA has to offer, being walking distance from the Metro Station, 5 minutes from the junction of the 101, 134, and 170, and 10 minutes from Warner Brothers and Disney Studios.

In addition, It's an open, airy home that still maintains a cozy, family-friendly feel in a safe, secluded neighborhood. The pool, hot tub, lounge area, gas fireplaces, loft bedroom and hundreds of reading and entertainment options combine to make this the perfect den for groups of all sorts and sizes.

What makes this house unique

Did we mention we're the closest vacation home to Universal Studios? All the same, you won't find three-bedroom house with a pool and hot tub (not to mention all the other amenities) this affordable anywhere else in LA.

Great location in Studio City

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Denny Avenue for four nights whilst in LA. The property is in a great location for visiting Universal Studios, and is in walking distance for using the Metro enabling easy access into central LA or out to the coast.

The house is located in a quiet residential street is well equipped and has everything you need for a family stay.

The pool and hot tub are a perfect addition to use after being out all day!

The house manager Jason is very helpful,and is always available should there be any problems.

Would definitely recommend the house to friends and family!

Fantastic Property and Location

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic. We loved the location - quiet neighbourhood but only 10 - 15 minute walk to Universal Studios. There is also a park at the end of the street. The house was well maintained and clean. It was spacious to accommodate our party of 6. The pool and spa was great to relax in. Jason, the property manager, was friendly and answered all our questions. Instructions about services and how to use the pool / spa were easy to follow. Access to the WiFi was important and access was very simple. It was a very short drive to the local supermarket which was handy. I would highly recommend this property if you want to spend time in L.A. Thank you Jason, Aimie and Philip for a fantastic stay in L.A.

GREAT FIND!

  • 5 of 5

After a long search for the perfect place, we stumbled across this one. We were honestly skeptical at first because the price seemed too good to be true. We read the great reviews however and decided to go for it. From the very beginning, Jason was very helpful. He responded to our questions/concerns right away and greeted us and gave us a tour upon arrival. The place is very open, clean and the location is perfect!! The backyard pool/spa area is great too. We were going to Universal and it was only a 10-15 min walk to the park tram and a 5 min tram ride up the hill to Universal. There is a grocery store close by, plenty of great restaurants (Sun Cafe, Gokoku Ramen) and even a beautiful park close by. The only thing that kind of sucked is our small SUV didn't fit in the garage, but we had no issues parking it in the driveway. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and seems really safe. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this place! Thank you Jason for all of your help.

Perfect home, perfect holiday! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home! From the charming gas stove and oven, the spacious rooms, the super comfy big beds, the beautiful heated pool and the relaxing spa and the ducted heating and air conditioning! This home becomes your home from the start of your holiday to the finish! Everything you need is right there! And Universal Studios is a 10 minute walk from this home! That's right, you heard me, 10 minutes! You don't get better than that! From the moment Jason Kobielus met us at the home, we were welcomed with warmth and understanding! We were able to leave all of our luggage at the home while the cleaners were preparing it for us! That was a massive gesture of kindness! It gave us 5 hours to be free to go sightseeing without lugging all of our stuff with us! Jason even let us keep our luggage at the house after we had checked out as our flight didn't leave for hours! It's these little touches that set this home, and especially Jason, apart from other holiday rentals we have stayed at before! Jason was always just a phone call away and answered every question and query very promptly! My whole family loved this home and our American experience was made so much better because of Jason's professionalism, courtesy and kindness! Thank you Phillip Roth and Jason Kobielus for making 5 Aussies very welcome in your home! 🇦🇺🇺🇸😀
