It is exactly how it was described and looks in the picture. During the day the pool was the perfect temperature and when you sat there you could smell so many beautiful fragrances from the variety of flowers and trees. At night it was so peaceful and mesmerizing to look out onto the canyon and see the twinkling of lights from other homes. Atsuko and Gordon were great and made us feel very at home. I would highly recommend their guest house. It is very convenient to get to many of the restaurants in Beverly Hills, the beach, Hollywood and Burbank. If you like to walk or hike, we purchased a book called Secret Staircases a walking guide to the Historic Staircases of Los Angels. It was really fun to find them and good exercise. I would definitely stay at this home again!!! Thank you Atsuko and Gordon for having us.
