I have lived in this house for 24 years and absolutely love it! It has charm and is light and bright and happy. My boyfriend and I love to entertain and so the house has a free flow to it where the inside and outside become one. We travel during the summer so we decided to offer it to others to stay in. I love to design and believe that the charm of this house is the simplicity , the bright colors throughout and the gorgeous pool and gardens with barbeque and lots of entertainment areas, offer guests the perfect retreat, just minutes from the exciting hustle and bustle of the restaurants on Ventura Boulevard.
Camilla More purchased this house in 1986
Studio City has become the 'Beverly Hills' of the valley! The shopping on Ventura Boulevard is outstanding - and there is a wonderful Farmers Market every Sunday where there are pony rides and a petting zoo for children. Studio City is conveniently close to the major Studios - Universal, Warner Brothers, CBS - and also an easy drive to the beaches, Six Flags magic Mountain and Disneyland. Hollywood , the Griffith Park Observatory, LACMA etcetc are 20 mins drive. In Studio City you are in a peaceful family community that is buzzing but not frenetic!
Once you have arrived at this house you will not feel like leaving! The view over the valley and surrounding mountains from the front deck is awe- inspiring. The feeling of tranquility and relaxation will overcome you as you lie by the pool or dine al fresco at night under the bamboo awning. You are on top of a knoll so there is no one looking in on you. Completely private.
The home and more view was more beautiful than the pictures, it was everything and more. It was so cozy, clean and comfortable. Camille was always so attentive and pays such attention to detail. We loved it and would stay again anytime! The view is amazing!! She provided everything and anything you could need. Security is important to me and this provided all that and more, security entrance and hideaway, private home nestled in the hills.
My first impressions were “wow, this is so much nicer than it looked in the pictures. The view is INCREDIBLE!”
The neighborhood (Studio City) is extremely nice. You drive up some winding roads and if you are really out of shape, I wouldn’t forget something in your car because there are quite a few steps. That’s OK anyways because once you get into the house and are by the pool, you won’t want to leave. It is so cool and relaxing with so little noise I even got scared when the palm trees would rattle and a lemon fell from the tree. The lounge chairs are comfy enough to sleep on. The morning sunrise is breathtaking.
The inside décor is French contemporary which is extremely comfortable yet chic. With such a huge open kitchen/living area, I never felt crowded even with 6 people there.
Every day is so bright & sunny but when needed, you can block it out from the bedrooms. The master bedroom and bathroom is big. The 2nd & 3rd bedrooms are a decent size with a small connecting Jack n’ Jill bathroom but there is a 3rd bathroom in the hall so everyone can have their own space. After staying longer than planned, we used the laundry which was super convenient. Camilla even put up a pack n’ play crib and a baby gate which blocked/divided the pool and lounge area for our little one.
We had a problem with the plumbing but it was corrected quickly. We also had a heat wave during almost our entire stay so the A/C couldn’t keep up with the 100 degree days. It was around 80 degrees in the house during the peak of the afternoon sun. Camilla was always 1 phone call away and very helpful if we needed anything. Because we arrived so late into the night from the East Coast, it was convenient to use the gate code/lock box and just get right into the house. I did wish there was some bottled water in the refrigerator since we didn’t get to stop on the way in.
Don’t forget if you’re coming from outside of California, you will need to pay for your own grocery bags (even at 7-11). I suggest putting some in your luggage or during your first day there, buy some that you can re-use and keep them in your car.
I would recommend this house to anyone and would definitely like to stay here again.
Wow, we've just returned home from our second stay at this property. Two different groups of friends and loads of fun both times. Love this place. Nothing you have to do without. You'll find everything u need and in immaculate order. Can't wait for next year's visit!
with my wife and our two teenagers had a wonderful stay in this lovely house !!! one of our best recently.
We often rent homes in the USA, and this is one of our favorites.
look at the pictures, imagine the two times better and you're still below the reality.
The house has everything needed for a family holiday.
Camilla was great all the time and very helpful. She decorated the house in the best possible way. you really feel at home ....
And the view .... breathtaking....
outside is very functional and you can spend evenings and meals poolside.
the place is perfect for visiting, not far from beaches and really near hollywood spots, getty center, downdown. most of the things are under half hour car wich is low in LA, considering the trafic...
thank you again Camilla an Cameron for this stay !!!
we had a wonderful family vacation at this artistic, comfortable and beautiful home. the interior, the location, the views and the privacy were very special. we were blown away from the very first moment!
round the corner we found nice restaurants, grocery stores etc.
we have lots of renting experience and this one was by far one of the best houses we ever rented. not only perfect but also absolutely cozy .
Camilla was very helpful, friendly - just a great host !
we hope to come back again next year.
I recently traveled to L.A. with my wife and three children. We all loved staying at this house and would do so again. The owner was very helpful and friendly and reacted promptly to a small plumbing issue we encountered day 1. After that, it was smooth sailing. The view from the front deck is amazing. The pool is private and very relaxing. A perfect place to unwind after seeing the sights. The house is beautifully finished and very clean. We had fun listening to music while in the pool and relaxing while watching sunsets from the deck. Centrally located made it easy to get to all the sights in Hollywood and the surrounding area.
The only drawbacks to the property: there are many stairs to the front door, so I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone with walking disabilities. The parking is right in front of the house which is a huge plus, but make sure you have someone that is very comfortable parallel parking.
Overall, I give this place a 10 out of 10 for the location, the owner and her communication and upkeep of the place and the fun factor of the view and pool.
