We were looking for a quiet, private place to visit relatives and get away from it all. This was absolutely perfect! Quiet, secluded, away from it all but very close to Santa Clarita. Gorgeous views from the upstair deck and the icing on the cake was the use of the pool and the washer/dryer. We relaxed, slept well and I even got some writing done (I'm a writer!). It really isn't that far from L.A. We went into L.A. three of the days we were there and yes, L.A. traffic is horrible but most of the time we were into the city in less than an hour. We loved all the hiking trails in the area and Vasquez Rocks are only minutes away. We will definitely stay again. The owners are very wonderful and generous people.
