Why Mark Fergesen chose Agoura Hills
We fell in love with Agoura Hills because of the character of the area and it's proximity to nature and the fact that it is close to almost everything that we like to do. It has lots to do in it and fun little shops a short drive or walk away. One of Gabriel's favorites is Tifa. They have the best gelato anywhere we've been and we LOVE to travel!
What makes this House unique
We like to hike literally around the corner of our home and hike up hills onto hiking trails to see a wide view of the hills across from our home. The wild flowers are beautiful in the spring along the trails. We spent 14 years renovating our family home to have the best of everything from the heated tile floor of the master bathroom suite to the tumbled marble mosaics sprinkled in the backsplashes and the distressed marble floor in the downstairs entryway and embedded in the floor of our pebble bottomed solar heated pool. Gabriel loves colors and lights so we invested in the over the top multicolored light show system that the pool uses to create a mesmerizing show. He loves pinball so we bought a collector's item Arcade Pinball Machine that we all love to play. We enjoy entertaining so we throw BBQ pool parties and have friends over to enjoy our large pool and jacuzzi with two waterfalls.

A slice of Heaven
This property is amazing! Mark and his family definitely have a little slice of Heaven! The pool and grounds are breathtaking! If we’re ever back to Los Angeles this is where we will be staying.
What a joy it was to have Michelle and her party as our guests! Just a wonderful experience all around. Simply the best renter that we’ve ever had.
The home is absolutely beautiful. My family had a great time. Their favorite place was the pool and the hot tub. Mark was very accommodating and I would recommend this home to everyone!
Ownership are very caring and friendly! Beautiful place to stay
Above average for the the cost
The only issue was not enough space for our clothes.
Thank you so much for your
feedback Jim. Since the home is our primary residence our stuff is still in it. If you need more storage space when you book in the future just let us know ahead of time and we will make sure that you have what you need. Have a happy holiday!
Couldn’t have been a more comfortable stay. For our needs to a tee!
Couldn’t have asked for more from our Agoura Hills stay. Our home away from home ticked every box. From start to finish, all a smashing experience. Easy and fast communications, warm and welcoming, spacious, comfortable, perfectly located in quiet neighborhood location accessible to absolutely everything. Couldn’t have wanted more convenience or comfort. Our group of 5 (representing 3 generations) all enjoyed spacious, private space as well as plenty of together time in general living space indoors and out. Such easy living in and out. Wonderful and welcoming.
It was such a pleasure knowing that you were going to take care of and respect our home and chose our home to celebrate your special day. Such a gift to have you rent our home. You are a valuable part of the home rental community and I hope
anyone reading this looks forward to you choosing their home too. I wish you and your family a joy filled future!
Your house was immaculate. Thank you for letting us stay there. We loved your pool. It's beautiful.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We love to travel and I always think what would I want when I go on vacation and I try to make that happen for our guests. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay!
