Overview

About the property

Opulent and spacious studio apartment with an elegant boutique touch.

(I also have two other rentals for your review, so if you require different dates, or amenities, please visit these links as well: The Urban Refuge https://www.vrbo.com/713340 The Millennial Hideaway https://www.vrbo.com/762499)

The Space

A short 13 minute walk from beautiful downtown Burbank, the Burbank Sanctuary is an opulent and spacious studio apartment with an elegant boutique touch. Enjoy luxury bedding, abundant amenities, 42" flatscreen and full kitchen. Experience five diamond standards with at home comfort, privacy and security. The apartment also has an iron and ironing board.

The Burbank Sanctuary is a downstairs apartment. While the vast majority of our guests love the apartment, it's not for very light sleepers.

Relaxation and comfort will come easy during your stay with us. Your experience includes queen-size luxury bedding, unlimited hot showers, free wifi and digital 42" widescreen with Netflix, Amazon and Chromecast.

You will also have a full size kitchen at your fingertips with all the cooking comforts you could wish for. A full size fridge, unlimited ice, soap, shampoo and towels are among the many delightful amenities available during your stay at the Burbank Sanctuary.

Enjoy accommodations and VIP treatment of a boutique hotel with at home comfort, privacy and security.

The building is a charming and cozy 5-unit apartment residence. There is a secluded side-entrance for maximum privacy and home-like comfort.

Guest Access

Ample unrestricted street parking is available, no permits or pesky meter feeding required. Driveway parking is reserved for our permanent residents. Everything is digital, no keys to weigh you down during your time out and about. I set a new code for each guest which assures total privacy and security during your stay.

Interaction with Guests

Depending upon the time of year, Self check-in is available or you may meet and greet with your host, sharing tips and information about the apartment and local area.

The Neighborhood

I love the Magnolia Park area of Burbank. This property sits next to the Chandler bike path and is walking distance from the downtown Burbank area. There's convenient food, markets and plenty of shopping nearby.

Getting Around

I always recommend rideshares such as Sidecar or Uber, but public transportation is equally within reach. If you wish to use Sidecar, my referral code is sf6z2 which will grant you a special discount on your first ride.

Other Things to Note

I have been in the hospitality industry since 2005. I owned and operated two hotels and I have traveled extensively. My sensibilities are for the traveler and the amenities included in your stay meet my high standards for quality hotel accommodations. In addition, the Burbank Sanctuary offers the fastest and most reliable internet available in the city.

House Rules

I cater to the nonsmoker without pets. Smoking is not permitted inside the apartment nor on the property. Our other tenants dislike the aroma. We love small non-human friends, but unfortunately they are not allowed at the property. We observe quiet time from 10pm to 8am and kindly request that you do the same by turning down your music or television during these times.

About Christopher Matthew Spencer

I have been in the hospitality industry since 2005. I owned and operated two hotels and I have traveled extensively. My sensibilities are for the traveler and the amenities meet my high standards for a quality hotel stay. I offer the fastest internet available in the city.

Christopher Matthew Spencer purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Christopher Matthew Spencer chose San Fernando Valley

I've lived in this very community since 1991 and would never live anywhere else. It's amazing. Not at all a big metropolitan area. It's suburban and apart from the hectic life of LA, yet fully accessible to the entire county through the immediate freeway access nearby.

What makes this apartment unique

I fell in love with this building because it feels like a house. Not a big complex. It was built in 1939 so the structure and feel is solid. I've updated the amenities to provide hotel-level services.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lauren was amazing. An extraordinary guest who is very tidy and respectful. I'd recommend her to any host. Thanks for being great!

Such a charming place, really wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to let you know that I absolutely loved this charming apartment! The location was perfect, the apartment was so sparkling clean and beautifully decorated and I appreciated all of the many personal touches that were provided. And what a nice surprise to have champagne and chocolate as well, what a treat! The bed was so comfortable, better than mine at home! So much better than a hotel, I was just thrilled to stay here! Thank you, thank you!

My sister and stayed briefly here, but it was incredibly comfortable.Everything we needed was there!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to LA from Pennsylvania and it was our first time being on the West Coast. We really enjoyed the apartment. It was nice after a long day in the city to come to a quiet street and cozy home. The bed was one of the best I've stayed in, and the decor looked like it thoughtful placed and chosen. We had an amazing stay! Only critiques (and they're barely that!) is that the internet was a bit glitchy at times, and it would be nice to have more condiments (butter, jams etc) so we don't have to waste full containers. I recommend this place to anyone staying in LA. The metro is incredibly close and the apartment is in a great location(:

Great Choice!

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow is in a great location in Burbank, Ca. close to restaurants, tourists attractions, freeways, malls, etc. The owner is wonderful to work with and wants to make sure you are comfortable. His kindness and thoughtfulness is top notch! The bungalow is on a quiet street in a nice area. It's perfect for one or two people. Extremely clean and the best bed and shower I have ever seen! I would recommend staying here! There is a reason all his reviews are 5 stars! Kudos to Gloria too, great cleaner who also let us know when the unit was ready via text! Also, around the corner is a family owned restaurant called Lancers. It has wonderful food and coffee!!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay! Very comfortable, lots of room. Super nice that there is a full kitchen! Would definitely recommend it. It's relatively close to a lot of surrounding cities and the neighborhood is nice and quiet with a lot of parking!

The property was very clean and well stocked with all essentials.

  • 5 of 5

The host made me feel welcome and I knew when it was ready for check in with a text from Gloria. She was fabulous in answering questions about check out. The kitchen contained everything I needed and was very clean. It was a great location and price. All of the instructions were clear and I enjoyed my stay. The owner was very responsive when I had a bit of difficulty with the lock. Great overall experience.

Amazing host!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place! Unfortunately only booked a night when I thought I booked 2... wish We could have stayed longer. The home is so clean and in a beautiful part of town. The host was the nicest man in the world and incredibly understanding. Thank you so much!
