We wanted a house to host a memorable 4th of July weekend with our sons. The Mulholland retreat was astounding. On every level, our expectations were surpassed. We live in Florida and planned this Holiday reunion with sons and spouses converging from Hawaii, Montana, San Clemente and Los Angeles. We received a warm and comforting welcome from Vicki's daughter, Kele. We were told that if we needed anything at all to call her 24/7. We were instantly swaddled in a perfectly amazing home. Our first night we enjoyed a fabulous view of several fireworks displays across the valley below. The listing could not have prepared us for all the extras because the home has so many amenities. It is spotlessly clean and inviting. All eight of us had really good, deep sleep in the special quiet cocoon of our bedrooms. In the morning the family had breakfast upstairs near my new favorite kitchen. At night the barbeque grill and deck was cozy and inviting. The fire pit brought out the best in conversation. Our cookouts from the grill tasted fantastic. By the second night were were all kids again, making s'mores by the fire. We thought we would ultimately venture out to attractions nearby but the Mulholland retreat is where we wanted to be. Because we have a large family, my husband and I have used vacation rentals before. This is the first time I have ever been compelled to write about our experience and I cannot find the words to describe our reunion. It will forever be remembered by all eight of us as one of our family favorite get togethers. If there was a ten star rating, this place would have to get eleven stars. The weekend was over-the-top, extravagantly fanciful! Don't miss this chance to make the kind of memories that last a lifetime!
