An oasis in the middle of it all

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice vacation due in large part to this gem of a place. The owner lives next door and is available to help when you need it, but gives you your privacy when you don't. We felt so comfortable and made good use of the pool, hot tub, piano and TV with an awesome surround sound system. We even made use of the small fire pit on our last day. Thank you Steve we couldn't have been more pleased.

This house is beautiful and has every house hold need you can ever want. Highly recommended !!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect getaway. It has everything you would ever need. No need to run to the store for every little item, as we've done with previous rentals. The home is so welcoming that we planned our last night to grill by the pool and enjoy the home. We would love to stay here again. The location is close to many attractions. Only wish we could extend our stay a bit longer.

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Location worked perfectly for us, house was well stocked, and had clear instructions for all things such as WiFi access. Steve answered my question about setting the air conditioning in a very timely manner. The pool area was delightful, had several areas to sit and relax, and umbrellas to shade us from the sun.

Yep! I would stay again.

  • 5 of 5

This house is better than the pictures. It is an older home with charm. We walked through the gate and could hardly wait to see the rest! The front yard is adorable, the house is great, and the pool area was awesome!

Here are the Pro's:


-Plenty of towels and bedding.

-Clean pool and hot tub area.

-Close to Universal Studios, Warner Brothers Studio Tour, and about 30 minutes to Six Flags Magic Mountain.

-Close to Bob Hope/Burbank airport

-Well stocked. Maybe even over stocked.

-Tankless water heater (but don't take long showers during the drought)

-Newer master bathroom. I liked the shower.

-The piano was a hit with the musicians in our family


-They have an A/C system that actually is the right size for this house and cools it!

-Felt quiet and private

-Grocery store very close

Observations: (These are very minor. Maybe even nit picky)

-Wordy rules and regulations to follow, especially while on vacation. Owners are particular about use of lights, water use, noise and pool use. We are a respectful, quiet family but I did feel like we had to be careful to follow all the directions and requirements. I just wanted to relax and zone out, not worry if I left a light on or took a shower for a couple extra minutes. They state that these rules are in place due to a drought. Maybe if you visit earlier in the season these rules wouldn't be an issue.

-I was longing for one non stick pan. Everything was stainless.

-This kitchen is fully stocked but for some reason there wasn't a dry measuring cup for kids pancake mix. Not a big deal. I just winged it.

-The house a curiously large amount of shampoo and conditioner stocked. You won't need to bring your own.

-There was one pool toy. We bought our own and left them for the next guests to use. I was surprised they didn't have a couple more pool toys.

We did go to Disneyland and California Adventure. It is at minimum a 1 hour drive. We knew this in advance but decided to stick with this rental anyway because it was close to other things we were doing.

This is a lovely VRBO that I would absolutely visit again! Thanks for having us.
