Fantastic property for your vacation!

  • 5 of 5

SO, we actually stayed at this property in August 2015 (no that's not a typo - and the website wouldnt let me choose a date earlier than January 2016!) - we always meant to leave a review, but had some family issues and time got away from us.....so why now? Because the property was THAT good!! We are a family of four (kids 12 and 14 at the time), and this property was everything we could have wanted. The house is large, clean, and beautifully decorated. The pool was a welcome treat every night. Julie was VERY responsive to a couple of questions we had, and I tried desperately to find the mattress make/model because it was the most comfortable bed I'd ever slept in!! The location was perfect for our L.A.vacation - we were near family, but also to all the tourist highlights. Over a year later, we still talk about our wonderful vacation, including the house!! We will definitely stay here if we are ever in the need to be there again!! Thank you Julie!

Lori was very personable. House had all the necessities. We even were able to walk to Ralph's from the house. Great value and very close to Universal Studios.

Lovely comfortable home in wonderful area!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Julie and David's home! It was in the perfect location for our stay- it took about 15 minutes to get to the home from the Burbank airport, and was also only 15 minutes from Universal Studios. We also found it convenient to our friend's home in the Beverly Hills area. The furnishings were great, the house was clean, the beds were comfortable, and it was totally set up for us to make meals at home. Convenient to a grocery store, and the neighborhood itself was lovely- surrounded by beautiful homes and friendly neighbors with cute dogs! There is an orange tree growing in the front yard that had big luscious oranges growing on it. We brought one inside that had fallen off the tree, and the whole home smelled like fresh citrus. There are a lot of great restaurants on the close by Ventura Ave- we recommend the famous "Casa Vega" nearby. Although we had a couple of issues with the hot tub, Julie was quick to try to remedy the situation. She was very communicative and easy to reach- she couldn't have been a better host. We would certainly recommend this home to our friends in the future!

wonderful vacation retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay. The neighborhood was very peaceful and quiet. You would never guess that you were so close to major roads. The house was well equipped with everything you needed and Julie and David made things easy with a binder that explained everything such as how to work the appliances,etc. They also left us a welcoming note and a bottle of wine, such a nice gesture. Even though the neighborhood had the feeling of being off the beaten path it was very close to a grocery store and many shops and restaurants. We would gladly stay there again!

Relaxing home - a place to put your feet up

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this well located home in Studio City. On a street with shady trees and well-groomed yards, this house is close to grocery stores, restaurants, and great shopping. We live in a more rural location in Oregon, so we took advantage of this ideal location to walk to dinner and shopping. However, the favorite part of our stay was sitting quietly in the back yard with our feet in the pool - book in hand. It was hot while we were there and we used the pool at every opportunity. The kitchen was well stocked and large enough for all of us to help in cooking. And, there was room for our daughter and her friend to stay a night with us as well. I highly recommend this beautiful home for a stay in the Los Angeles area. We hope to stay again soon.
