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!

Well kept and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Christopher's place was perfect for my husband and I to end our honeymoon. He provided us with all the essentials from toiletries to a fully equipped kitchen. The memory foam bed was super comfortable and the entertainment setup was top notch. He also provided us with some great recommendations on places to eat that we tried...Cafe de Olla was fantastic! We also loved the waterfall shower head...so cool! Really everything about this place was amazing! Thanks again Christopher for hosting us😊

Each time we go to Burbank we always make sure we stay at the Sanctuary. The rooms are modern and very clean. Mr. Spencer has thought of everything and is very accomodating. We highly recommend this place.

Thank you for providing such a wonderful place for me to get rejuvenated. I was grateful for the attention to details such as the beautiful décor, music on the radio, kitchen accessories, and toiletry items. The location was perfect too. I loved it and wish I could have stayed longer. Thank you so very much!

What can I say? By far THE BEST place I've stayed in my life.

  • 5 of 5

Oh man, what can I say?

I LOVED SO MUCH staying on Christopher’s property that I’m not sure if I liked it more than visiting L.A. perse! :P Honestly I don’t know even where to start.

This place has THE BEST to offer from the beginning till end.

Extremely charming and calm family neighborhood. Located in the best place ever. You are near absolutely everything and even just less than a 5 min drive from Downtown Burbank where you can also go by feet as I did sometimes to do a little bit of exercise while getting home.

I loved the market that is about 3 mins drive from the apartment but I also loved the In-Out Burgers you had at another 3 mins drive but heading to the opposite side. Not to mention also Five Guys on the other block.

And if you were lazy enough you even had a Burger King at a walking distance of one or two blocks from the apartment. Also Uber Eats works perfectly fine and so quick that you could have lots of different meals right in front of your door in just about a couple of minutes.

The owner Christopher is the most kind and cool guy I’ve ever met and even if you are not lucky enough to meet him in person he makes sure you enter his property being welcomed with a great bottle of champagne and chocolate. What else could you ask in life? ;) And this is just to name one of his lots of details where you can totally see that he puts a lot of him on them and are not random at all.

The apartment is equipped with absolutely everything you would ever use or need in your stay and even more. It is so comfortable that it makes you feel you would like to live your life there forever.

I would put 6 stars if 5 wasn’t the limit. That’s how much I’ve liked it.

Thanks for everything Christopher!
