I have lived and been a realtor in this area for longer than I care to remember, and we have another smaller property nearby which I have enjoyed renting out to guests from every state in America and all around the world for the last few years. When I first saw this home in very poor condition, I knew it could be transformed into a great place to accommodate larger family groups and the guests we could not accommodate at the other property. It was a labor of love and we are thrilled to now welcome our return guests and new guests alike to our new property, and do our best to make their stay a memorable one.
Helen Walker purchased this house in 2008
I love Studio City, Valley Village where I have lived and worked for the last 30 plus years. I had a whole storage space full of my own furniture when I sold my house and moved in with Chris, the love of my life, so we bought a duplex to rent out as furnished units, but I was unable to rent it long term as prospective tenants had all their own furniture and then I stumbled on vacation rentals and have never looked back. Thank you VRBO !!!!
My family and I, (4 adults and 2 Children) stayed at The Valley Village Garden Guest House from the 29th Nov 2009 for 5 nights.
The Guest House was spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and had every conceivable appliance and fitting required. Just a home away from home.
Helen was very friendly and efficient to deal with and went out of her way to help where she could.
The Guest House is ideally situated in a lovely tree lined suburban street in a quiet neighbourhood, but still handy to lots of attractions.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful accommodation to any travellers.
The guest house was perfectly neat and clean when we arrived and there was a welcome basket of assorted fruit, cookies and popcorn. As we unpacked and settled in, we found the amenities to be excellent. We have rented many properties through HomeAway, but this was the best-stocked rental we have seen. There were plenty of towels, every kitchen utensil and appliance you could want, an excellent washer and dryer and cable tv with all the basic channels plus movie channels. The owner thought of everything for this guest house.
The house is situated on a quiet street in a nice neighborhood, but close to the major freeways in the valley. The private back yard is a very pleasant place to relax, as is the front veranda with Bougainvillea growing on the front trellis. The furniture is comfortable, the closet space is ample and there's even a gas fireplace. The owner is very nice, communicates well and is very accommodating.
If you're planning a visit to LA, you should definitely consider this property!
We were a group 16 people gathering in LA for a family wedding. We couldn’t have picked more perfect places to stay. We rented the main house and guest house plus Helen has another unit within walking distance of the Hartsook houses located Westbrook. I highly recommend any of these places; there was ample room so we weren’t all on top of each other. We liked to cook our own meals in the well-stocked kitchens; everything you could possibly need was there. Lots of fluffy bath towels, to the wonderful candles throughout made our stay like being at home. There are plenty of books to read, handy brochures to get you around town plus you are in a great location close to restaurants and grocery stores. These units are very homey with nice backyards for BBQ, I can’t say enough, this is the only way to go instead of a campy hotel, and they are clean and well managed. The only bad thing is we didn’t get to meet Helen in person. Oh and the personal touch of a welcome basket was awesome. Thanks so much Helen!
I would return to this property in a heartbeat. I do a ton of rentals for travel and this was the most well appointed rental I have ever stayed in. Beautiful furniture, robes, and well decorated. Kitchen had snacks, spices, fruit, oil and was beautifully appointed. The cleaning people did an excellent job as well. We were well cared for. You will not regret staying here. We loved all of her recommendations as well.
What can I say about this property apart from Amazing!!!
When we arrived this house was very clean (and I mean clean!) I felt as though I should take my shoes off before entering. This property is very well furnished and unbelievably stock. the area that this property is located in is fantastic, only 10mins away from Hollywood and Universal. This house made a great difference to our stay in LA (a previous stay in a different property was not so good). The only issue that I had with this house is that fact that its so welcoming you don't want to go out exploring LA, as we were only In California for one week and had a lot on our itinerary we didn't get much time to enjoy the house (BBQ, garden or hammock).
My wife loved all the small touches like spare cosmetics in the bathroom, condiments & teabags in the kitchen along with the space in both bedrooms.
Ive already saved the information of this property and will be recommending it to all family and friend that are thinking of taking a trip to LA, This will also be the first place I look for if I do get a chance to re-visit.
Thank you for having a fantastic rental property!
Not only is this residence beautifully decorated and maintained, but also all the kitchen and bathroom cabinets are fully stocked. What a convenience! There are thoughtful touches throughout - lots of non-skid hangars, a laundry basket, books, kitchen gadgets galore and a very comfortable bed and bedding. It's also close to several freeways and subway stations. Be aware that this is not a separate guest house but more a wing of a larger rental house. The small bedroom shares a wall with the larger residence. It also has a sizable skylight - a lovely addition, but not so great for anyone other than early risers!
Universal studios and Hollywood Blvd are just minutes away.
Other Activities: Shopping, health/beauty spa.
