Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Sherman Oaks - Halbrent Haven

Beautiful and tranquil 3 bedroom, 2 bath house in Sherman Oaks, California.

Beautiful 3+2, 1400 sq ft home with tranquil back yard. This house has a contemporary decor with warm and pleasing color tones throughout. You will find a fully stocked kitchen to prepare any type of home cooked meal that you desire. After a good nights rest on the pillow top luxury beds (found in every room), you can wake up and enjoy a delicious breakfast or cup of coffee or tea on the covered patio in your private yard, surrounded by the beautifully landscaped, zen-like atmosphere. This house is conveniently located, making daily excursions to tourists attractions very feasible. Wifi, cable tv, zulu and netflix are available.

About Brenda Buonora

I am a mother of 4 wonderful children, 2 girls, ages 19 and 21 and 2 boys, 23 and 35. I am also a grandmother of a boy aged 16 and girl aged 6. I own and operate 3 child development centers in my surrounding community. These centers provide child care services, in addition to early intervention and therapeutic services to children with special needs.

I also have a passion and knack for interior/exterior design and in 2003, I completely remodeled this home, which I live in when I'm not traveling and exploring. It turned out gorgeous, and I decided to rent it out so that others may enjoy it, while I was traveling the globe. I hope you enjoy my home, as much as I do. :)

Brenda Buonora purchased this house in 2003

Beautiful home, perfectly situated!

  • 5 of 5

We took a last minute family vacation with the kids, and found this amazing home that was in the middle of everything we were hoping to see! Close to grocery stores and great restaurants! And centrally located to all the major attractions. The house and back yard were impeccable, and has a feeling of privacy and peacefulness. A perfect spot for families and friends. An absolute deal for this quality of a home! And a wonderful host :) Thanks Brenda!

Excellent Great Home - Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

In the search for a temporarily place to stay, we were so lucky to find this perfect house and great owner to whom we now consider a friend. The house is in excellent condition and it even looks better in real life than pictures. The owner was so kind to accommodate us and work with us and our relocation agent.

There was literally nothing wrong with the place, and I would highly recommend this place to anybody who wants to be in Sherman Oaks.

We're so lucky we found this home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for over 3 months and our family is so grateful we found it. Our home had major flooding and water damage and we had to evacuate immediately. My main concern was finding a place that could accommodate myself, my husband and our two small children. Brenda's home was perfect. It was clean, cozy and very peaceful. The backyard is a huge plus. We had no idea how much damage our house had endured, and we had no idea that we would be displaced for as long as we were. Brenda was easy to work with, always available and extremely helpful. Another plus, the neighbors are very nice as well!

Great Stay !

  • 5 of 5

I had my family come visit me here in Sherman oaks from Dc - we stayed in the house for a whole week and I can say that it was so comfy and made them feel right at home. Brenda and her family is so accommodating before and during our stay - she was always reachable and super helpful with any questions I might had . We had no hassle booking the place and her beautiful home was stocked with everything we needed and more . The backyard was our favorite with a stunning landscape and blooming flowers. The guest hose is a HUGE plus! - The set up is really am A+ . I definitely will be renting from Brenda again in the future no questions asked. Thank you Brenda for everything !

Adorable home!

  • 5 of 5

This adorable house is conveniently located with easy access to the 101 and 405 freeways making the tourists attractions and/or work easy to get to. It's in short walking distance to Target, Fed-Ex Office and several other shops. Most of the home seems to be updated and it's decorated beautifully giving it a warm and comfy vibe. My family of four (2 kids,2 adults) stayed for many weeks and it was more than enough room for us. The owner is a pleasure to deal with, very kind and always available for questions. I would recommend this home to friends and family and hope to stay again soon.
