Quiet, Cozy and Charming

This house was perfect for our California vacation. It is so cozy and serene and the views are amazing. The communication with the owners Joseph and Shari was prompt and pleasant. They made us feel welcomed and were extremely friendly. Great place to stay.

LA Gettaway

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I were looking for a cabin near to LA to gettaway and write for the weekend. This lovely little spot was close enough to the city, but felt remote enough for what we were trying to do. We really enjoyed the space-- it was quirky and full of the kinds of details writers love. There were far more bugs that we anticipated (silverfish/spiders) and a roaming mouse in the upper bookshelf who appeared once or twice. The owners were kind.They said the space had been regularly occupied but it felt as though it had not had guests or been used in a little while. The towels had a few 'spider nests' in their folds, and the giant cobwebs above the kitchen sink with three large dead spiders and mouse droppings on the upstairs desk made me feel as though perhaps they could have used a cleaning service instead of doing it on their own. All in all though, we had a fantastic quiet time and they were kind enough to let us stay past 1pm and dip our feet in the pool once more before leaving.

We are in a secluded area of Los Angeles, actually in the Angeles Crest Forest and Mountains, so internet and cell phone service is spotty. Our property is on ten acres with near by hiking and horseback ridding but we are only 20 minutes from Warner Brothers and Universal Studios.
