Perfect choice for a family weekend in Los Angeles

  • 5 of 5

Julie and David are wonderful hosts. Their home is lovely, inviting and comfortable with all the comforts of home. We all loved the swimming pool. The neighborhood is lovely and quiet. Less than a 10 minute drive from Universal Studios. We highly reccommend this property.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Julie and David's home - the location was perfect; close enough to all LA has to offer but also far away from the hustle and bustle. The house has a great layout and plenty of space and, of course, the pool and jacuzzi were favorites of the kids. Completely stocked with everything you need. We had a few small issues (out of anyone's control) that were immediately taken care of - have never seen more attentive owners in the long history of renting through VRBO. Thank you so much again Julie and David - we hope to make it back to your home in the future.

Perfect home from home for exploring Los Angeles

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in April 2017 for seven nights at the end of our three week holiday in California.

We loved the property and location. It's easy to reach from main routes but is located on a quiet residential street.

The house is very well looked after, clean and equipped with just about everything you could need to make it a real home from home. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought into what their guests might want in a holiday rental.

The recently renovated back garden, pool and jacuzzi were great. We used them most evenings after being out in the LA sunshine for the day.

The owners were friendly, helpful and easy to communicate with.

In short, we couldn't recommend this place highly enough. We loved our stay and if we're ever back in LA, we'll definitely want to stay here.

Thank you very much Julie and David!
