About Julie & David

I am a Southern California native who lives and works nearby, and enjoys traveling myself when ever I can get away.

Julie & David purchased this house in 2008

Why Julie & David chose San Fernando Valley

This is a special property surrounded by trees in Studio City, desirably located 'South of the Blvd' (Ventura Blvd) with easy access to major freeways and both the San Fernando Valley, Downtown, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Westside (Santa Monica and Beach Areas).

What makes this house unique

Coming to town to attend a Graduation. We are not far from UCLA or USC, not to mention any of the other local universities.

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.

Great House in a Good Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in Julie and David's house in mid to late September while visiting our daughter and her family, who live nearby. The house was perfect for our needs. There was plenty of room, the premises were clean, and the house was fully furnished with towels, linens, kitchen utensils, and other items that made it seem like home. We especially enjoyed the pool, which our two year old granddaughter and her four year old cousin loved. Julie was very responsive to our questions. The location was also good, being only two blocks away from Ventura Boulevard and close to Coldwater Canyon. We hope to stay again on our next trip to LA.

Luxury Studio City pool house.

  • 5 of 5

What a nice place in Studio City. Just AMAZING. The house is very beautiful, fully equipped, nice large pool with hot tub, minutes away from grocery stores, nice restaurants (try Maria's Kitchen !!) but also near the I-101 and I-405 that brings you to all interesting places in LA, Santa Monica and Malibu. And the owner really makes sure you have a good time, stays in contact to be sure that everything is OK, and gives you really the impression that it's important to her that you have a great time at their wonderful house. A no brainer as far as we are concerned. We'll be back on our next trip to LA.

Wonder house. Wonderful location!

Wonderful property in a wonderful location. We had a fantastic time and loved every minute. The house is fully equipped which makes life so much easier when traveling from the UK. A very comfortable house with a fabulous pool. Can't recommend this house highly enough.

A Home From Home....

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last 8 nights of our 2 week US holiday at Julie' s wonderful house with our 2 teenage boys. This was our first VRBO experience and everything went perfectly from the initial enquiry to receiving the refund of our damage deposit once we returned home. Julie kept in touch and sent us an email a few days before we arrived with a PIN number to unlock the key box allowing us to access the property as soon as we arrived. We were greeted with wine, cookies and a welcome card on our arrival, as well as an email from Julie to check we had arrived OK.

The house was extremely comfortable, very clean with everything you could possibly need during your stay, right down to fabric softener and fresh ground coffee in the freezer.

Julie had provided a binder full of information on how to operate all of the household equipment and an abundance of local guides and maps to help you get the most out of your stay.

The layout of the property is excellent allowing everybody their own privacy. There was lots of storage space especially in the master bedroom. The kitchen was fully stocked with every piece of equipment you could ever want. The pictures and description on the web site are completely accurate. We really enjoyed using the outside facilities. The boys loved the pool and we made use of the heated jacuzzi late at night. The garden is completely private and not over looked at all. The property is situated on a quiet residential road with no through traffic and the neighbourhood felt very safe.

We arrived quite late on a Sunday evening and were able to pick up everything we needed at Ralph's supermarket which is open 24/7 and only a 5 minute walk from the property. There are also lots of shops and restaurants within a 10 minute walk on Ventura Blvd.

During our stay we were able to visit most of LA's attractions within 30-60 mins drive because of the very easy access to the highways within 5 minutes of leaving the property.

This truly is a home from home and we found it to be a perfect property and location for our LA trip. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Thank you from the Edwards family, Cheshire, UK. Stayed July 10th -18th 2016
