The title sum it all up. This house is beautiful and lovely. We stayed here for 5 days and had a great time. My two year old nephew love the pool side. We wish it was summer when we checked in but we will definitely come back and stay here again.Thank you Brigette for accommodating us and providing us a lovely home for the weekend. Cheers! :)

Great home for a large family w teenagers

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for us; two blended families consisting of two adults and 7 teenagers. The house was attractive yet "liveable", which is what we looked for. Great kitchen and back yard. Loved the fire pit. A couple of simple additions could make the house a "5"; add another TV to the living room and master bedroom (currently 1 in family room and 1 in kitchen), fix the wifi, and replace the charcoal BBQ with a gas BBQ. Otherwise very enjoyable for our family and an ideal, safe location.

Owner's Response: Hello Jim..... Glad you enjoyed your stay. As mentioned on the site, yes, there are "only" 2 TVs in the house since people are in vacation most do not have the need to watch too much TV, although I understand that with 7 youngsters, your family might feel the need for more TVs. The Internet has been a problem for the past 4 weeks or so, although I have made some changes and upgrades within that period, there was no significant speed improvements, so I finally decided to change the internet provider. The change is scheduled for this week. Re the barbecue, I wish you had told me of your preference since I have both, a gas barbecue and a charcoal barbecue. Some travelers prefer the gas barbecue, and some travelers prefer the charcoal barbecue. For next time.... Thank you for leaving the house so neat; a challenge for most people considering you had 7 teenagers with you, 2 adults. Hats off! Looking forward to see you again in Los Angeles with a great internet service. Best always, Brigitte

Booked house for 95th birthday family get together

  • 4 of 5

The property is very nice. One story home, which we were looking at because of my elderly parents. There are 2 large steps up into the house at the front door and one step out to the backyard. We paid extra to use the spa. Were told it would heat up in less than an hour and it took about 3 hours.The house was spacious and airy feeling. Felt a little strange that the owner is staying on just the other side of the wall in part of the house, we never saw her, but it just felt strange. Brigitte was very helpful in finding a restaurant to order food to be catered to the house. If you have anyone that is a light sleepers they will wake up as the wooden floors were the noisiest I have ever walked on. It is a month since our visit and we still have not received our security deposit. Waiting to hear from Brigitte.

There were lots of towels and extra blankets and blow up beds.

I would recommend this rental to another family, just be aware of the "extra" charges that she wants paid in cash.

Owner's Response: Hello Shielah, here is my reply to some of your comments: In regards to the deposit money : As discussed before, I always refund the $500 refundable security deposit within a few hours/days after the guests’ departure. In your case, I am trying to have the CSA insurance to pay (so you won’t have to) for the damages your father's wheelchair caused, but the insurance needs invoices in order to make their decision. The repairs are not completed thus why this refund is not settled yet. Unfortunately, your father’s wheelchair caused many scratches throughout the house: the walls in the hallway & entrance, scratches in the 2nd bathroom, scratches to 5 doors some doors on both sides, chipped several door frames of paint and scratched the black cabinet in the family beyond the lacquer. Scratches to such extend that the hallways need paint touch-up & 4 doors need to be repainted on both sides, the door frames too. The black cabinet door would have to be refinished & a specialist needs to do this. In regards to the extra charges payable in cash you mention: 1).As written on the site: “ NOTE: The pool is cold during the winter months. There is a $4.00 fee per hour ($95/day) to heat either the pool or Jacuzzi/spa ( payable in cash at check-in time).” At your arrival, you’ve asked me questions about the verbage & your family decided to use the Jacuzzi thus turn on the gas heater. At your departure, you left $25 in cash on the counter. I didn’t question your word for the times or number of hours you used the Jacuzzi/gas heater. 2) Please also note that you have NOT been charged the $15 fee per night/guest for the extra guests that stayed on the property above 7 people. Your group was composed of 9 people ( 10 for one night). This would amount to over $ 90.00. Consequently, Homeaway made changes to my account where any group over 7 people would be charged the $15.00 fee automatically at booking time directly through the site. Sometimes, people do not know how many people will stay at the property at the time of booking, thus why the charge was not applied automatically to you. As mentioned on the site, I live adjacent. There is a fence separating the backyards. I cannot see the guests and the guests cannot see me. I am private; I respect the guests' privacy as I wish that the guests respect my privacy. Some guests welcome the fact that I live so close. Thank you for your review. I'm glad you had a fun family gathering for your father 95th birthday party.

Holliday in LA

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for two wonderful weeks in this beautiful house in Woodland Hills LA the house is well Placed in relation to the experiences you want to do in LA Freeway 101 is close to the house so it is relatively easy to reach the various rides in and around LA.

When we were not on the experience we enjoyed relaxing in the house, swimming in the pool and enjoy the good weather.

The house is efficient three seperate room with good bathing and toilet facilities for all rooms of the house is neat, clean and tidy.

The only small complaint we have is the internet connection it could have been better, it was very slow, but as the sweet landlord Brigitte said it would be repaired as soon as possible.

Once again thanks to Brigitte for her advice and help in the first days in LA.

All the best!

Owner's Response: Hello to the Little family from Denmark. Your family is lovely and I enjoyed meeting you all. I only wish you had told me sooner than the day prior to your departure about the issue with the Internet. It was fixed of course; the cable company made some changes and all that needed to be done was to search for a new channel. We changed the Internet channel and now, we have a "speedy' Internet. Best always, Brigitte
