We really enjoyed our stay here in Northridge. My daughter was visiting colleges in the area and we are from out of state.

We were mostly impressed with the neighborhood itself and how safe and clean it was. The best part was how close it was to everything.

Lisa’s guest house was absolutely perfect for our group of four. It was quaint and it was quiet and it was set back away from the main property. We really felt like we had a little piece of heaven all to ourselves.

We were greeted by Lisa’s daughter who was just finishing cleaning the guesthouse. It was immaculate when we stepped through the front door.

The fruit trees and pool just added so much to the ambiance and just fell in love with the space.

Would definitely consider staying here again.

We stayed 3 nights. The guess house searved it’s purpose with beds, bathroom and kitchen.We came back on Saturday night at 9:30pm and were surprised by a Halloween party (college kids from main house) in the backyard with beer pong , music, flashing lights and people jumping on the trampoline.This went on until we texted Marissa at 12:30 that the party was too loud. She brought the party indoors but some of their guess spilled outside at 1:36am. Not cool or professional.Lisa, Don’t have guess stay there if you know there’s going to be a party’s around the holidays. I guess you get what you pay for!!!!

Owner's Response: Ali we host a Halloween party every year. It ended at 12 not 12:30. I think that is more than reasonable for a weekend night. We do host other guests in the main house and consider their requests and needs too. I didn't understand or see any relavence in your comment, I guess you get what you pay for?? I understand that hosting has brought many different people from all over the world to our home. It is clear by the one star reviews and the 5 star that everyone approaches an experience with a different attitude, positive, and happy, or a negative, and angry. Your mentality is the latter and that had nothing to do with the guest house or is in our control. .

We really enjoyed it. There were a few questions Sunday evening but Lisa answered them and the rest of our week was very pleasant. Lisa and Marisa were gracious hostesses. The house was more than adequate for our needs. We would highly recommend the house for anyone else.

Home away from home...super cute private home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here 6 nights. There were five of us total--myself along with 3 teens and a 4 year old. We arrived and Lisa's daughter walked us to the guesthouse. There is plenty of sleep space with the two bedrooms and fold out couch. Plus there is plenty of lounge around space in the living/dining room. The home is clean, bedding clean, bath clean. The bathroom and kitchen stocked with items you might need, but not travel with, which I appreciated when we needed scissors and a bandaid. As the week went on I noticed very small things, like oh that vent is a little dusty. One of the outdoor steps is warped, again no big deal. I would take this place over a hotel. It was a very cute home, it was clean, safe, comfortable, the grounds are well maintained and pretty. As mentioned in previous reviews the main home is occupied by students. There is a private entrance so we never had any interactions other than hi and bye as we're coming and going if they were outside. It was mostly quiet our entire stay, one night Friday or Saturday evening was a little louder, I think the students were winding down at weeks end, but no big deal. I would recommend Lisa have a window covering for the sliding glass door. Even with that and small things I mention I give the accommodations an an A. My family enjoyed our time here and would happily stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Yvonne, l am glad you get the concept of private short term rental. We have students that stay in our 7BR main house, all here for the semester. Each semester we have an extended family! We love having them and they enjoy themselves but are not inconsiderate. I really appreciate your comments. After comments from some previous guest, l feel happy that you and your family had the experience that l hoped for. It's the reason why l love having you and other guest stay with us, and not a hotel. No l don't have maid service or maintenance man, sometimes people take the key and that complicates things. Still l am glad that you see how small those things are in the overall picture. Thank you again for the positive and happy views of our guesthouse, Lisa

I asked prior to my arrival date if early check in could be accommodated. I was told yes, with an hours notice. I called day of arrival only to find out that was no longer an option. In fact, I was not able to check in until 4:30- which is after the listed check in time on this listing. Cleanliness left a bit to be desired. Hairs on all the linens- sheets, towels. Previous renters contact lenses stuck to the top of the nightstand.

Similar to a previous reviewer, I too was kept up until 3am with noise from the main house. I was in town for a very important work trip, so I could not afford to be up half the night. I left two days early due to noise and asked if I could get a refund on those days, but never received a reply.

There is a great hotel up the road for half the price. I would highly recommend it to future travelers.

Owner's Response: This reveiw is the result of not getting a refund for your one day early departure (not two). I have a cancellation policy and checking out early because your travel companion ended up not joining you is not within or close to required eligibility. There is no way I would have promised you I could give you an early check-in. We have instant book, and had a check out that same day! Yes it is correct that there was a small party that was getting loud and as soon as you made us aware of it, we stopped it. However your comments that there was hair on the sheets is definitely untrue! The sheets on your bed were NEW ! out of the package. Another untrue suggestion that there is a hotel a mile away that is HALF the cost of my $150/nite 2 bedroom guest house !! There isn't even a MOTEL anywhere close by for that rate, Let alone a 2 bedroom 1000 sqft guest house with living room, dinning, kitchen, and full bath. It may have seemed over priced to you, because as you told me, your friend backed out of the trip and that is why you were staying in a place that sleeps 5 by yourself. And I'm not even going to bother defending comments about cleaning. Only that we wash all towels and linens and thourghly​ clean the entire unit.

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.

Why Lisa Barill chose Northridge

Along with the lovely tree lined streets and safe neighborhood. One of the most desirable features of our guesthouse is definitely the beautifully landscaped yard and swimming pool. This relaxing environment and resort- like atmosphere will make 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.
