About Lisa Barill

I enjoy meeting and hosting people from all over the world Some of my hobbies include interior decorating, painting, and shopping ! I recently started refinishing and restoring furniture for a small shop on etsy

Lisa Barill purchased this house in 2013

Why Lisa Barill chose San Fernando Valley

Along with the lovely tree lined streets and safe neighborhood, one of the most desirable features of our guesthouse is definitely the beautiful landscaped yard and swimming pool. The relaxing atmosphere and environment makes even a business trip seem like a vacation.

What makes this house unique

Your stay in the guesthouse offers the advantage of having a full kitchen and a outside barbecue grill , when you want to stay in and prepare meals. You are also walking distance from many wonderful restaurants, cafés and coffee shops, for times when you want to dine out.

  • 1 of 5

I was looking for a nice affordable place for my mother, my partner and I to lodge for my niece's wedding. Did I get what I paid for? I never got to meet Lisa. She agreed to an early check in as long as we could give her an hours notice. I gave her an estimated time the day before and then texted an hour before to say we would arrive at 1pm. She was unable to meet us but said she'd be there in 25 minutes. Never showed. She gave us permission to let ourselves in as the door was unlocked. A pile of laundry was on the floor and a girl came in and quickly scooped it up. We needed a key and communicated as much to Lisa many times. She promised to put it under the mat and we could leave and lock up. We returned at 8:30pm and no key under the mat. I had to call her again, went to the main house and the girl that had the key wasn't home. Another random tenant got me the key out of the girls room after she got a call from ? Not nice, not friendly. The place looks like the pictures. Not as clean as it could be, the stairs down from the main house are busted up, towel hook on the back of the bathroom door is hanging by loose screws and the excess of decoration inhibits any practicality of surfaces or function. We were there for three nights and the third night the 20-somethings with European accents living in the main house hosted a Halloween party - outside and eventually in the pool. I'm pro fun and pro party. I just thought that was pretty weird to rent a guest house and have a costume party right outside the door.

So - for young travelers I suppose it's better than a hostel. Lisa didn't follow through on anything she told me.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry Mary that I was unable to greet you. I had a very complicated weekend and don't wish to explain. However the guesthouse was clean and ready for your requested early check in. It was left unlocked as we always leave it so our guests can go in. When it is unoccupied it also left unlocked. The unknown girl who picked up the small basket of towels , that was my daughter. The previous guest had mistakenly taken the key and she, my daughter, had a spare key in her room in the main house. When you returned she had gone out, so we had her cousin who lives with us bring it to you. I don't know why you thought it was "weird" for my daughter and her college mate's to have a costume party? It was Halloween !! They were considerate and conscious about not disturbing you and were all gone by 12am. And thank you for letting me know that a screw needed to be tighted on the hook on the back of the bathroom door. I do want to address in your review you state that the stairs are "all busted up" Clearly this false description is resulting from you being upset that I could not be there to greet and give you the key, and the only thing that you could possibly be referring to is a small board on the wooden steps that is slightly warped! But certainly not broken! You also say that the décor was a nuisance for you. All I can say to that is; you saw the photos beforehand, which you described as accurate, and decided to book it for your stay.

This property was in a gorgeous setting and inside was decorated in "shabby chic". Simply relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what we wanted for 2 adults and 3 young children 9,6 and 4.5. It was clean, tidy and had everything we needed. The pool was the icing on the cake! We were very happy there and even when we caused a terrible lot of stress to our hostess because I had mucked up our booking, both the hostess and her daughter were just so wonderfully understanding that under other circumstances it just would have just been horrendous for them. They treated us with such compassion we were made to feel less guilty and very grateful.

This property is ideal if you want somewhere you can relax and enjoy your holiday. It is easy to get around all the LA sights as it is close to the freeways and interstates. There are lots of shopping areas nearby and driving there was simple and no stress.

I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a great home away from home. Nice people, nice address and very relaxing. I hope we get the chance to stay there again one day, the children certainly hope so!

Fit our needs for half the price.

  • 4 of 5

The neighborhood was beautiful, safe and plenty of parking. Lisa was very friendly and more than willing to do what she could to make our stay pleasant. Beautiful yard and very clean guest house. Her and her daughter were both very available by phone/text which was helpful. There was plenty of shopping (grocery, pharmacy, etc) and restaurants nearby although most of what we did was in LA and along the beaches. It was a 45 minute drive to the LAX area and that was during the non-rush hour times and NOT using Interstate 405.

We had 4 adults and 2 teens and even though there was enough bed space, the pull out couch was less than ideal. It is old and the frame must be tweeked because it took us 10 minutes to even get the bed unfolded as the frame was jammed inside the frame of the couch and then the one corner dipped so far that my mother-in-law had to sleep with her head at the foot and my father-in-law slept in the chair with his feet on the corner of the bed. The teens slept in the twin beds and they said they were super squeaky and woke them up every time one would try to roll over. We were disappointed that we had to ask for the spa heat to be turned on (30-45 minutes before we wanted to use it) and unfortunately when they did try to turn it on, the heater caught fire and we never did get to enjoy it. Not sure why, but all 6 or so garbage/recycle cans were already full when we got there and so it made it hard for us to dispose of our waste upon leaving 4 days later.

Overall, I would recommend this property, but not for more than 4 people unless she replaces the couch/hideabed. She did have an air mattress available, but we didn't use it.

Beautiful location. but........

  • 3 of 5

We had a pleasant stay in LA . The guesthouse is very well located in a quiet residential area and very close to Northridge Fashion Center and other shopping centers. The kids enjoyed the pool .

The bathroom is spacious and has lots of light.

Lisa is wery welcoming and took the time to greet us and show us around the property.

We met a few issues during our stay:

The sofa bed is old and leans from left to right .

Dust not done on right hand side and behind the sofabed.

The mattresses in the twin bed room are old and lean backwards.

The inside of the oven was absolutely filthy and greasy.

Kitchen ware is very limited , no space to cook nor kitchen work area.

For people who want to prepare their ownmeals , it is annoying.

Owner's Response: The kitchen is small (galley style) suitable for travelers and is not advertised as a gourmets kitchen, clearly shown in the photos. Generally guest staying are not cooking but site seeing etc. The inside of the oven when l checked it was far from filthy, yes there was some minimal spills that the self cleaning cycle took care of. The GH was fully cleaned before arrival, looking behind heavy furniture you may find some dust, in places like you mentioned, the inside corner of a large sofa bed as well as behind the stove or fridge. The sofa bed you said was old has a brand new mattress !
