About Sarah

Australian boy meets California girl.... couple a kids later, here we are.

Oh yeah life goes on...

We travel a lot and love to share our home with kind, friendly, good people.

Sarah purchased this house in 2004

Why Sarah chose San Fernando Valley

We've worked really hard to create a lovely home and our private backyard is a very special place to us.

What makes this house unique

pool, spa, lovely home, private location. We feel very lucky. Close to restaurants and public transport.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful STAY!!. The kitchen, bedrooms, living room and outside patio were gorgeous and well equipped. Loved the spa and outside lighting!! The backyard felt like we were in our own private Oasis. The furniture was comfortable and attractive. Nice layout to house. Great high ceilings.

We will recommend it to everyone... hope to see you again soon.

Nice house but not as private as we hoped

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice vacation in the home, and the homeowners were extremely friendly. It seems this isn’t always the case, but the homeowners were present during our entire stay. The main house was ours, but there is a guest house and a music studio immediately adjacent to the main house. This meant electric guitar practicing and lessons in the studio (on our last night this went past 10pm). It also meant their children, nanny, and music students sometimes coming through the yard. It wasn’t a big inconvenience, but when you are expecting to rent a whole home, it felt a little off.

The house itself is really interesting; very vintage but thoughtfully put together. Cool older furniture and appliances (and unusual lightswitches). There was plenty of rooms and nice beds. However, don’t plan on any drawers or such to unpack – we were living out of our suitcases for the week.

The location is great for getting to stuff: Universal, easy access to subway, great parking in their driveway. The main part of North Hollywood is a cool area, but it’s a little walk away. The immediate neighborhood is fine, but not really a place you’d want to hang out.

Overall, I think this can be a really nice rental, but I’d ask before confirming if the family will be on premises while you stay there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are often away when we rent the main house but sometimes do stay in the guest house. We apologize for any lack of clarity on our part & lack of privacy that you felt. We always want our guests to feel at home and comfortably enjoy the spacious yard and pool. In the future we will be more mindful to ensure our guests understand that we may be on site but also that they have desired privacy.

Lovely home, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

7 of us stayed for four nights. This home worked perfectly for us. The yard was lovely, the hot tub was excellent and the home was so comfy and livable. It really helped make our vacation perfect. Sarah and Troy were wonderful hosts and made sure we had everything we needed to make our time there awesome.

Comfortable House -- Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house over MLK weekend. Sarah was the perfect host -- she gave detailed instructions on how to work everything in the house and was immediately responsive when we had a question about something while we were there. The house was big enough for seven of us (three adults and four kids) to be comfortable and having the backyard and hot tub was a big plus (it was too cold for the pool). It was also very kid-friendly -- the kids really felt at home, as the house is a lot less formal than some other houses we have stayed at in the past. While there is not much to do right around the house, there is a park a few blocks away, a small farmer's market on Saturdays with a bouncy house for kids, and a grocery store less than a mile away. Also, the Metro line has a stop a few blocks away -- we found that very convenient for getting to Hollywood and the LA Science Museum, instead of driving in LA traffic. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to stay in the North Hollywood area.

Magical Comfy Beautifully Antiqued Home

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival Sarah and Troy were there to greet us with Big smiles warm and welcoming. They gave us. basic instructions on the house. But they had everything very orderly put together for us in a book. They made everything so easy and relaxed for us. Now for us the house just knocked our socks off. From the outside it looks like a cottage. Once you step inside it takes you back to a beautiful time when life was slower and easy. Beautiful antiques everywhere beautiful sparkling crystal chandeliers. Furniture so comfy. The Beds are to die for. We slept so well great bedding. It felt like we were in a mini castle in fairytale land!!!!! Then you step into the back yard then you really feel like your in a dream space. It' so beautiful. White draping surrounding the patio big over stuffed chairs with cute little tables and large umberllas for shade. It also turns into a beautifully lit Oasis at night with candles and strung lights fantastic Palm Trees and little hidden spot back by the pool that's just quiet and amazing if you like to just sit and read. There's a chanderlier out there too!!!! Just Amazing**** The pool is fabulous and the spa was where I'd hoped to relax in looking at the night sky for my shooting star and I got it MY SHOOTING STAR!!!!! I would recommend this property to everyone. Works really well for families with children too. The owners are spot on fantastic people couldn't ask for nicer people. Sarah and Troy thank you for everything. I can't wait to come back. Hoping your home will be available for my next visit. GOOD VIBES EVERYWHERE:)

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our first stop on our 14 day family vacation! The property is exactly as described. All the reviews are 100% correct. Sarah & Troy are great host!

Wish our stay was longer, if I come back out to Los Angeles I will definitely stay here again. Location definitely close to all the Los Angeles sites.

Thank you Sarah & Troy.

Like staying with a friend

  • 5 of 5

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.
