Overview

About the property

"PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION AND THE BLUE "MORE DETAILS" TAB BEFORE MAKING YOUR DECISION ABOUT THIS OR ANY OTHER HOME AWAY PROPERTY". Thank you.

On the Woodland Hills/Calabasas border.THIS IS NOT A SHARE! THIS IS" NOT" DARK AND DANK CUBICLE APARTMENT! You have the entire place to yourself. If the calendar says that the cottage is available,. IT IS! HIT THE BLUE 'BOOK IT BUTTON'! Also If you decide this is the place for you and yours,and it is a last minute booking (three days or less before you arrive) you must send a request via email to book. Without that prior contact on a last minute booking ,we will most likely decline your request. Please leave a telephone number so that we may give you a quick call. Before the description starts in earnest...Please if you or any person in your party is a smoker, do not book this home. There will be a "dishonesty penalty" charged to you if you smoke anywhere on the premise.OK..with that bit of info out of the way..the place is centrally heated and cooled. Two very large tastefully inviting' bed rooms.(with King and Queen beds. You may have up to three (including 1 separate hideaway), beds,nobody has to sleep on a couch! One and one quarter bath(no waiting), The linens are of sufficient thread count and are impeccably clean.(I clean them myself). A bathroom with a 'full bathtub',and not just a shower. You can be assured of peaceful uninterrupted nights sleep..This is a completely detached building with 'total privacy' as it's sole design mission.The kitchen is fully appointed ,including a microwave,full sized refrigerator, full stove , toaster,spices that would satisfy most palettes,dishes,and an assortment of pots and pans. An array of gourmet teas and coffee are there for your enjoyment.Thank goodness the drought is over ...the dishwasher is back! There is a clothes washer and dryer solely for your use. The fully appointed grand kitchen that opens up into a bright living room that is large enough and elegant enough, to entertain new clients ,family ,new friends ,or whomever you choose! Flat screen television and 'WI-fi' are included.

Outside is a very cozy and comfortable 'artistically designed' private bar be cue area,perfect for lazy afternoon suntan sessions.Best of all its an easy short drive through 'back road beautiful mountain scenery' direct to Malibu Beach California .Lots of hiking and biking trails, High end 'shopping abounds well within easy walking distance.Conveniently situated between the Calabasas Commons,(as seen frequently on TMZ and other shows), and at least four other shopping malls and stand alone boutiques abound. There are also plenty of' Gourmet' restaurants for every taste and palate . Public transit is within blocks to take you to local places like Hollywood, Universal studios, Venice Beach, and such.There is no need to base your 'home away from home' in any one of those congested areas when within a few minutes you can be there.Lets face it, most Vacations to 'Big Cities' aren't very relaxing... Where you are able to go and really 'unwind' is what makes all of the difference.You can also view or book another one of our fabulous properties by following this link.

I cannot emphasis enough how important it is for a home away from home to afford you as a guest, 'complete privacy'...You wont feel intruded upon in at all.

Unfortunately for our safety and even more than that,..The safety and privacy of our guest we can not allow 'stop byes',or 'drive byes'. Please do not ask.We tried it before and it simply does not work. Valid identification for all guest must be presented at time of check in.

Loved this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were here over Christmas and hosted family here for Christmas dinner. It really was fantastic. The pictures describe the place and size of the property very well. The rooms ARE as big as they appear in the photos. Rich and Eva are great to deal with. The grill was fantastic and brand new. The location is close to any store you could imagine. The location of the house, on the back of the lot is very secluded and private. I've rented from VRBO for over 10 years and this has been one of the best.

Thank you Rich and Eva!

Worst experience in bookings. Communication is not their strong suit.

  • 1 of 5

Future renters should know what they have in store. Once we made the bookings we anticipated some sort of contact. We initiated every contact. Upon arriving at the home we called Rich and he proceeded to chastise us for not calling upon our arrival at the airport. It was all very odd. He over talks you and does not bestow the courtesy of listening. He sent a young college student over to let us in and the door was unlocked the entire time. He was insistent that Eva needed to come and go over the ground rules. Eva asked to see my credit card and then took a picture of it onto her phone. I stated that they had already been paid and that I was uncomfortable with those practices. She asked if I wanted to find somewhere else to stay. The dishwasher was full of standing water and is a safety hazard. Their excuse is that it cannot be used due to water conservation. The tile upstairs is broken in many places and presents a real safety issue. We always wore our shoes when going upstairs. The washer and dryer are outside in the elements surrounded by shelves that are full of trash. The hot water heater has been installed there as well and is open to the elements. It is sitting on top of a very shaky foundation. The wall leading to the AC has fallen in. The roof has a blue tarp on it. Obviously from a leak. The on line pictures show a grill. There is a very small table top grill that is filthy and corroding. The house is behind another residence that must belong to them as well. Fences and gates between the front residence are falling apart and barely secured. I did not feel secure in the home and I certainly did not feel secure with having my personal information on her phone. It was the worst experience in all the years I have been using the VRBO site.

Owner's Response: Folks, "Please" read our other legitimate reviews to get a real perspective . ...From the first conversation with this guest .."BEFORE" they ever arrived ,..She was literally screaming at Rich because he couldn't give house directions. He wasn't familiar with the area they were in. Upon meeting them, and the accompanying pungent smell of stale spirits,.. within the first thirty seconds, I bombarded. Forced to endure ugly racially charged comments up to the point whereas I felt compelled to ask if she'd prefer to stay elsewhere. Renting a home, renting a car, or a hotel room, valid identification is needed. In my listing a clear picture of me. If I have the appearance of a person you'd rather not do business with, have an apprehension about ,please, take this into consideration "before" renting the place. I was born this way. In the first phone call, the guest mentioned concern about "ethnic"crime levels in Los Angeles. In an attempt at "normalizing" the telephone conversation, Rich mentioned an FBI agent. also an NSA agent are our neighbors on both sides. She had no reason for issues with her safety in this neighborhood of million dollar plus homes. When I finally met her personally , I was asked how I could afford to live in the area...? Really? We did remove the gas BBQ because of the safety hazard for children.No one ever used the gas grill. We found,most people like the taste of charcoal better. It is a standard sized grill you'd never put on a table. Some states have snowstorms. We have earth quakes and damaging" Wind Events" complete with blowing fire embers .A neighbor's giant palm tree branch speared the roof during a wind episode just prior. The blue tarp was protection from over hanging palm seed growth not rain.We're in a drought! The building is an almost a three tall story flat roof. If we had not told her about roof and other repairmen for the wind damage, she would not have known. Their work materials are refer ed to as"trash" in her review. She had no reason to go into that taped off area. It had nothing to do with the living area she rented.Out of caution we suspended work while she was there.She also had no reason to lift up an examine twenty feet of carpeted floor that does have a few cracked tiles beneath it. That is really bizarre! We do not advertise a dishwasher.Again, The Drought. As stated in our listing.Against our rules they re-connected it anyway. INCORRECTLY! Now complain about standing water? REALLY?

Very clean and comfortable. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed here for a week in mid-August 2017 while attending a high school reunion and visiting relatives. We were impressed by how clean, attractive and comfortable it was. This house really does look just like it does in the pictures!! Rich and Eva were very welcoming and attentive. It’s important to point out, as clearly noted in the VRBO listing, that all bedrooms and bathrooms are upstairs. The stairs are a bit steep so this house would not be the best choice for anyone who has trouble going up and down stairs. Babies and toddlers would have to be closely supervised.

Perfectly sized with all the essentials.

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice place for our group of 4 (2 couples) to stay. We visited 6 flags and Universal Studios during our stay and they were both good distances away from the home, not too far or hard to get to at all. There was a grocery store and gas station right on the corner as well as some fast food options around the corner. All in all a very nice place and location to stay in. Very pleased with my stay.

Just book it!

  • 5 of 5

What an adorable little getaway! My friend and I stayed at Rich & Eva's Woodland Hills property and loved it. Rich, despite claiming to be socially awkward, was easy to work with, funny and charming. He was very responsive and attentive and just an all around nice, easy going guy. The property itself is clean, charmingly decorated and very naturally cool in the living room area, where I spent most of my time while in the rental. The upstairs where the bedrooms are can get a little warm, but there is air conditioning throughout the home that you can adjust. The wifi worked great, we got a bottle wine from our hosts to enjoy and we had a great time going to the beach everyday and getting tanned/sunburnt.
