GREAT location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect location for our family vacation! It’s basically in Universal’s backyard! We went to Universal, WB studio tour, La Brea tar pits and the Santa Monica pier. The only thing that wasn’t within 15 minutes of us was the pier! It was nice to come home to a house, with space and a yard, after walking all over Hollywood. Master bedroom has a very comfortable bed, and no complaints from my son on his bed either. We really enjoyed the yard, at all times of day! During the day there were hummingbirds visiting all of the flowering plants and at night, it was the perfect space to relax with the added lighting. Working with Ann was always pleasurable and prompt. When we come back to Los Angeles, we won’t be staying anywhere else!

Worked out great for us.

  • 5 of 5

Very close to Universal Studios. I would reccomend taking an Uber and not paying for the crazy parking price. House was very roomy and fit my entire family of 7 easily.

Owner's Response: Excellent tip for future tenants!! Of course street parking at our home is completely FREE (a big advantage over nearby hotels), but when going to Universal Studios it's better to walk, or bike, or simply pay the $3 Uber ride instead of the $15-$25 per day parking that they charge at Universal. Another tip - if you want to just go to Universal's City Walk, and not the Theme Park, just Valet your car and get validation from one of City Walk's many great bars and restaurants. Check with the Valet rules when you are there.

Perfectly located Hollywood Hills home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a wonderful stay in this charming, Hollywood Hills home. Plenty of room, incredible views, and the most comfortable beds ever. We walked Hollywood Blvd and visited Universal Studios (a must when in LA)- both a few blocks away. We'll definitely be back- thank you!

Great location but would not stay here again.

  • 2 of 5

The location was great and the directions for parking etc. were good. The home was cute and there was plenty of room for our family. The sad thing is that the floors were filthy and the linens were not clean. We swept the floor ourselves because it was so dirty. The bedding smelled like wet dog and the beds did not appear to have clean sheets. In addition, when I made reservations, I made it for 8 people but there were only 2 wash clothes provided. In fairness, I thought the owners must not be aware of their cleaning crew's lack of attention to detail so I emailed them to let them know what is going. I have stayed at many VRBO homes before and have never experienced this at all. So I figured that it was an oversight. But the most surprising part was the way that they responded to my concerns. They basically said I was wrong and that they have never had a complaint. They did not provide more wash cloths etc. They told me that I did not read the info ahead of time ( I think that is because among all the other concerns, I mentioned that the kitchen was so very limited and did not include even a starter paper towel roll or hand soap. I understand that they may not HAVE to provide the paper towel or hand soap but I have always experienced one starter roll and some soap at all the places that I have stayed in the past. I probably should not have mentioned it.) It was just very disappointing that they responded in such an ugly tone as I provided immediate feedback with my concerns allowing them an opportunity to fix the problems. I would not stay at this location again because when I notified them of the concerns of the floors, bedding, and lack of wash clothes, they did nothing about it. They said they might get someone out to clean it but they did not. Very disappointing and I was very embarrassed bringing my family and friends to this home.

Owner's Response: Sorry this tenant had a very rare and poor experience but there are many inaccuracies stated here. For one, we could not have been more cordial, even apologizing to her in writing for the home not meeting her expectations. As far as the cleanliness, the home was checked before the tenants checked-in, by my husband, as he always does, and it was found to be very clean, as usual (just like 59 other tenants have pointed out in their reviews listed here). The other issues like wash cloths and blankets could have been fixed if they just read the home manual that we sent them, which is also posted on the fridge, and then they would've known where to easily find things (hint - check the drawers!). Anyway, we gave this tenant a fair and accurate low score on her review, as a tenant, for stating falsehoods during our written conversations, and not following the clear instructions we gave them. Tips for other tenants - open all drawers and read the home manual to find out simple things like where are the wash cloths (and trust us there are plenty of wash cloths!).
