Perfect location. Troy was so helpful directing us to the various methods of transportation that are so close. He suggested driving to Universal Studios which was only minutes away and then suggested public transportation to get downtown so that we didn't have to worry about parking. Everything is as it looks in the photos. I really appreciated the fact that the owners didn't rent out the home in the backyard so that we would have the pool to ourselves.

Easy, Nice, Oasis!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice! Sarah was very professional & prompt. This was a last minute scramble for us. We scheduled a recording session with most of our group coming from as far away as Italy. This house served as a chill & crash oasis around 12 plus hour days in the recording studio for 3 days. Recommend and hope to stay again when the album drops!! Thanx Again... CAV

Comfortable Home with Easy Access to LA Attractions

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and 4 young kids needed a comfortable home away from home for our visit to Los Angeles, and that is exactly what we found. Sarah and Troy are great hosts and have a beautifully decorated home and backyard with plenty of space for all of us. It was perfectly situated for our day trips from Universal CityWalk to Hollywood to Downtown, to Santa Monica. We would definitely stay here again and recommend the home to others.

Wonderful place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Troy and Sarah's home! This was the perfect place for our family with grandparents and two children to stay. The house is very clean and charmingly furnished with antiques and cozy bedding, making it homey and comfortable. The back yard is a gem, with lovely seating areas where we dined al fresco for most meals and a fabulous pool and spa where we cooled off each afternoon. It's a great location, convenient to the Burbank airport and close to grocery and dining options. Arrival and departure were a cinch and Sarah was most communicative and helpful prior to our getting there. We'll certainly stay here again if the opportunity arises!!! Thank you Troy and Sarah for sharing your wonderful home!

Fantastic House! Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Traveling from Saudi Arabia to meet our kds at Disneyland and Universal Studios was a daunting task, but with Sarah and Troy's help and their beautiful home we were able to live our dream in style!!! The house was perfectly located within an easy driving distance from Universal Studios which made driving their painless. We loved the "shabby chic" which was perfect for our daughter's young family and we loved the style so much we were inspired to create that same casualness in our retirement home. We especially loved cooking on the antique stove. Sarah gave us clear instructions to do everything we needed to do in the home and the house was easy to find. Bravo! We would stay again!!

Great House! Great Pool!

  • 5 of 5

Sarah and Troy were perfect hosts! We were greeted with a quick tour of the house and welcome basket of snacks and goodies. So nice of them to even leave coffee, fresh eggs and juice in the fridge. Sarah made sure we had the right information to get there, and get settled, without ever crowding us and was always quick to communicate if we had any questions.

The location was perfect and so easy to get around. The home is beautiful and clean with a long open layout. Loved the high ceilings and cozy shabby chic furnishings. Our son loved all the board games and puzzles and the kids room with bunk beds. The house has all the necessary amenities and extras that made us feel at home.

The back yard is what really makes this place amazing! So private and quiet with a huge pool. The jacuzzi is way in the back close to a seating area with a fire pit chandeliers and fruit trees. At night it is truly magical! We really enjoyed having our morning coffee and eating our meals on the back patio enjoying the flowers and view of the gardens.

My family only wished we could have stayed longer.

We would recommend this house to anybody.
