Lisa Barill purchased this house in 2013
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.
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.
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.
Recommend highly, great value for all that's offered. Will definitely stay here again when in LA area. As lovely as pictured, friendly and accommodating hostess!
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.
Fantastic, adorable cottage right in Los Angeles and very clean! Lisa was really nice person.
This is my first time to use VRBO and It was a little nervous at first.
We booked the house because they have pool and my idea to bring my parents and grandfather to spend sometime in 4th of July weekend in LA
seem pretty hectic! but it's worked out ! the price not so bad (at all--cheap) the place very clean and they have a lot of equipment to use for cooking
the swimming pool just right in front of the house. I love Lisa being very flexible because we add on couple more people and they even provided us the air mattress to use. The sleep situation was great even we have a lot of people but unless everything clean and we figured it out everything.
I would go there again but next time maybe a little less people so we don't have the restroom problem...
This property was amazing. It was clean, beautiful and welcoming. Everyone on the property was very friendly and welcoming to me and my family. We had four people, 2 adults and 2 teenagers and we stayed 8 nights. The guest house was private and perfectly laid out. There was a large living area with TV and dining space. There is also a perfectly sized full kitchen, equipped with everything you may need. The two bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. There is plenty of closet space in both rooms. The bathroom is huge and stocked very well. The grounds are beautiful with lush greenery and fruit trees. My favorite part was being able to have fresh lemons! My family used the hot tub nightly and the pool a few times during our trip. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. It was near plenty of food and shopping locations. The house is also very close to interstates and LA attractions are just a short drive away. Lisa and her daughter took great care of us and made sure our visit was a great one. I highly recommend staying at this property. It sleeps 4 perfectly. There is a pull out couch bed in the living room, but if I had to say something negative, it would be that the couch bed was very uncomfortable and probably needs to be replaced soon. I would absolutely stay here again and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable, safe, fun place to stay. Perfect for families or couples.
