We booked a last minute business trip to Los Angeles which included our 21 months old daughter. We stay at many VRBO locations around the country and have a very high standard. Since we travel with our daughter (she has been on 56 flights!) we are always looking for accommodations for a small family. We are so delighted that Francis had a last minute opening for us. Her property was perfect for our 5-day business trip. A few of the highlights of the home....the property is tucked up in the Hollywood Hills. We flew in to Bob Hope Airport in Burbank and only took 20 min commute time from the airport. The home was very easy to find the parking is on the driveway not on the street- a plus! The house is totally private with a secure locked gate with a gate code. We felt very safe and often had all of the doors and windows open....December in Los Angeles! The grounds were immaculate and the private courtyard and backyard garden were very well suited for our daughter for playing and exploring. Because the property is totally gated and secure, we always knew she was safe to explore and play. The home was immaculate, very tidy with up to date bathroom. The bedroom had a small desk, a plus since we need a work space when traveling. The kitchen was well suited for cooking and although we didn't cook any big meals, the kitchen was just fine for simple breakfast and lunch. We had many meals out in Hollywood and Beverly Hills, great restaurants! One of our highlights of the trip was the hike at Runyon Canyon which was less than 5 min drive from the house. The home is comfortable, has wifi and cable tv, so you can still be plugged in while feeling very out of the fray and activity of Hollywood and Los Angeles. Mobile phones work great on the property, no issues at all with connectivity. Frances is a wonderful hostess. We will be sure to return and have already shared our experience with our friends and family.
