About helen faraday young

Although British, I've lived in Los Angeles and New York for many years. I love the climate here and being outside 365 days of the year. Spending time in the Santa Monica Mountains and on the beaches are top of my list!

helen faraday young purchased this house in 2013

Why helen faraday young chose Woodland Hills

A really easy, light and comfortable house to live in.

Well positioned for all points East (downtown LA) or West (amazing beaches) Great as a base for exploring all of Los Angeles.

What makes this house unique

The garden, the location, the light and the comfort all contribute to the ease of being here. The back garden is completely private, surrounded by citrus and other tall trees and is not overlooked.

French doors from the the living room open onto the dining patio and lush green yard.

I love the Santa Monica mountain range and the beaches. Amazing high end shopping close by, Target 1 mile way and everything in between. Downtown, LA Beverly Hills, Hollywood all within an easy drive. This is a perfect rental to use as a family gathering location and as a port from which to access LA and Southern California

Helen’s house is ideal for anyone interested in renting a house in Woodland Hills, CA. The house is clean, comfortable and supplied with everything you need for an extended stay. There is an ample supply of kitchenware, bed linens and towels. Helen stocked the refrigerator with food for the first day or two of our stay. The house is conveniently located within two blocks of an entrance to and exit from Route 101 and is close to shopping on Ventura Boulevard. Costco, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and several Ralph’s supermarkets are within a 5-10 minute drive. Although being close to major thoroughfares, the house is very quiet. Moreover, it is quite secure, since it has a motorized gate separating the property from the quiet street where the house is located. There is a pretty yard and a covered patio with table and chairs for outdoor dining. Helen made us feel right at home and was attentive to our every request. We highly recommend this property and look forward to staying here on a regular basis when we visit Woodland Hills.

The property was well taken care of and we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Can't say the same for the weather though.

Great Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Helen's wonderful house. It was a nice and private residence that is still close to shops and attractions. We were able to easily get to Universal studios and Beverly Hills for our tourist activities. Other times we enjoyed the comfort of the house. The backyard was our favorite. I spent most mornings just relaxing in the garden with bees , hummingbirds and squirrels. The kitchen was fully equipped for cooking up a storm when we didn't feel like eating out. Not to forget Helen stocked it with basic necessities before our arrival. We had such a great time staying in her lovely home and Helen was such a gracious and fantastic host. We would definitely return for our next family vacation!

Fantastic location for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

I planned a trip to surprise my mom by taking her along with my two girls to visit her siblings. It was a great trip but the best part of it was Helen's house. This beautiful house is located right in the middle of downtown Woodland Hills but in a private side street. There are many restaurants and coffee shops in 5 minutes walk and the highway, is only 2 minutes drive. I'm a runner and I loved my 5 miles run every morning in the beautiful safe side streets. The garden is out of this world. I loved to sit outside with the candles reading my book or on my laptop. Helen is a lovely lady and made our stay perfect. She had milk, eggs and water ready in the fridge so there was no need to run to a supermarket on the first day. The house is sparkling clean and delightful. Highly recommended and we now have a place in LA for our next visit.

Lovely Cottage in a big City

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 wonderful weeks in this adorable cottage in Woodland Hills. It is within walking distance of some great restaurant's and is very close to the 101 entrance but still very quiet and secluded. Ideal for a retired couple or a young couple with 2 small children. Very private with Lemon and Grapefruit trees in the back yard. The backyard is ideal for entertaining or just laying back with a good read and glass of white wine. Grocery shopping very convenient as well. We would certainly rent this place again.

For a week before Christmas last year and again this year my wife, daughters and I rented Helen's home. The home is completely and well equipped for easy comfortable living as a small home away from home, and Helen's personal notes regarding use impart hospitality. The home is immaculately kept but not ostentatious. The location is a fine starting point for vehicle travel throughout congested LA and is convenient to several mega-shopping malls for our shopping needs. The large back yard with fruit trees and surrounded by a high fence has provided a welcome sun-filled place for exercise and relaxation, even in "coolish" December. Closing the electric front gate provides privacy and secure parking, a significant plus. We have rented several different homes in the greater LA area, and Helen's is the best, which is why we will certainly return again!
