This house is truly ideal for a getaway to L.A. It's in the hills of Bel Air. It's private, quiet, with beautiful views. At the same time, you can get in the car and in five minutes be on Sunset Boulevard driving through Beverly Hills. You get all the perks of the big city, while also feeling like you have a private retreat.
The house itself is superb. You can dine and relax outdoors, take a swim, and relax in the spa. Inside, the house is comfortable, and has every amenity you'd need or want. As an extra benefit, the owners are so very friendly. They also make sure everything is just right. We had one small glitch when we arrived - the heat on the hot tub wasn't adjusted quite right. I called the owners and they were there immediately to take care of it.
There were just two of us, but if you want to travel with several people and split the cost, this is a great place for that. There are two bedrooms (each with its own private bathroom) in one part of the house upstairs. Then there's a separate staircase leading to a very large bedroom with 2 queen size beds and a private bathroom. So this house is ideal for just two people or several couples or groups.
If I come back to L.A., this is the only place I would want to stay. I really could not recommend it higher.
