Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Los Angeles area - Casa de los Conquistadores

On the Woodland Hills/Calabasas border.THIS IS NOT A SHARE! THIS IS NOT SOMEBODIES CUBICLE APARTMENT! THIS IS ALSO NOT A RUNDOWN PARTY HOUSE! You have the entire place to yourself. Hello folks,..welcome to Casa De Los Conquistadors!This earliest example of California living was built in 1927! This is the very first house that was built in all of Woodland Hills. The home was originally the Caretaker's home for the Charlie Chaplin estate that is just down the street. Classic stucco design combined with arched ceilings,furnished with period antique pieces, The home's rustic patina harkens back to another less complicated, more romantic era. If you are looking for something "ho hum" modern and ordinary ,this isn't your place! However if you want a place that gives you a real feel of true to life early California (with all modern conveniences),this is the spot.If the calendar says that the house is available,. IT IS AVAILABLE! HIT THE 'BOOK IT BUTTON'! Centrally heated and cooled. Three very tastefully inviting' bed rooms.(with King, large full,and bunk beds. Also up to' three' (Separate hideaway beds),nobody has to sleep on a couch! Two full bath,s(no waiting), The linens are of sufficient thread count and are impeccably clean.(I clean them myself). Two bathrooms with 'full bathtubs',and not just a shower. ..This is a completely detached building with 'total privacy' as it's sole design mission.The kitchen is fully appointed ,including a dishwasher ,microwave, refrigerator, oven 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. There is a clothes washer and dryer solely for your use.*(Sorry,due to the drought,washer and dryer use are for stays one week or longer). The Fully appointed kitchen opens up into an elegant dining room . Flat screen television and 'wi-fi' are included.

Outside is a very large and comfortable patio, 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,(2 complementary bicycles available..use and borrow at your own risk). '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.

Guest Access

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.

Interaction with Guests

Upon your arrival we completely understand... YOU ARE TIRED AND YET EXCITED! A short three to five minute orientation is all that is necessary to acclimate you to your 'new digs'. After that if you have any further questions,concerns,or just want to say Valid identification for all guest must be presented at time of check in....HEY!!Just give a call.

The Neighborhood

Centrally located to EVERYTHING!! Yet outside of the frenzied mess of is LA. A bike ride away from shopping ,restaurants,( if your in really in shape ,..the beach) We're close to the interstate (the 101) ,yet if you choose it isn't necessary ...take the streets or back roads to Hollywood, universal studios, the ocean. or head north along the coast for a wonderful ride to the California wineries!

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. Guest must contact host at least forty eight hours ahead of time to notify as to what time plane arrives if arriving via plane. After arrival please contact host as to give a better ETA .The host will meet and greet you with a short orientation and give you the keys..Then you are set to start your vacation!

Very good choice for larger family

  • 4 of 5

Spacious house for family of six. Appreciated two full baths and patio. Good neighborhood with easy access to highway, restaurants and shopping. New Life church around the corner was a small but awesome place to worship. Horseback riding in Topanga State park is close and well worth the money.

Charming, historic home

  • 5 of 5

Really nice place with a sense of history. The owners didn't gut it and modernize it, but fixed it up to maintain it's original layout/look from the 1920s. Only issues were the bed was pretty hard (tossed and turned), no control of the thermostat (although the owner said we could adjust it a couple of degrees either way, I was never able to access that).

Having said that, charming setting, felt very safe and a good, central location. Loved the feel of the place. :)

Owner's Response: We really appreciated this guest's stay. There is always a balancing act with different body types and the firmness of mattresses.That is why from now on we will be supplying and extra mattress pad for those "cushy soft" mattress lovers.I wish we had been informed about the guest inability to learn the thermostat. I hope that our guest wasn't a bit uncomfortable..They were such pleasant "real" folks. We really do appreciate them picking our home.

It's my new home away from Home! :)

  • 5 of 5

I love California! It was three glorious weeks. Now I'm back in New York City reminiscing on California and "The Casa". I slept well, ate well, relaxed well. Most important, the kitchen was set up for a three week stay. I've stayed at other rentals that were not and I had to continuously make trips to the store. But you guys had everything. Better than my own apartment! (Ha!) Thanks Eva ,(and Rich) for a memorable stay and all of your great tourist advice! The house was perfect for my and my "Posse"

WONDERFUL -- GOOD TIME

  • 5 of 5

Had to thank Eva and Rich once again. I stayed with my daughter back in January of this year at another house that is run by them..I was afraid when they told us that our original choice wouldn't be available that we would be stuck with just another "Ho HUM" rental that nobody else wanted... Boy was I ever wrong. This place (Casa De Los Conquistadors) felt like a sleep over museum. There were museum quality artifacts throughout the house. Real "old timey" vibe with all of the modern conveniences (like central heat and air). Ornate and fancy in a rugged 19 century kind of way. ...I'll be back

AWESOME HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5

Eva is such a sweet person. I really enjoyed our conversations. I also like her style and taste in home decor. Lots of character in all of the design. There is nothing like the Casa in Arkansas.I really enjoyed my vacation.
