The best vacation stay ever!!
Left on 06/29/2011 for a stay in June 2011
If there was a way to give a thousand stars, I would do so! From the beginning of our stay to the end, the owners were kind and very helpful. The pictures don't do it justice, it was more than I imagined! Each bedroom is cozy and comfortable and the bathrooms were great, especially with so many girls! The outside grill was great for our cook-out and the house gives you a relaxing atmosphere. The owners are super friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of! The house is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, but close to major shopping areas and the highway. It was very conveinent getting from place to place in downtown la. The house is amazing, the owners are the best ever! I couldn't recommend this place more! If you have the chance to stay, book it, you won't regret it, the only problem is that you don't want to leave.
Best Family Vacation to California
Left on 11/26/2010 for a stay in March 2010
I went to Los angeles, California last March with my husband and my three children who are 18, 15, and 13. This beautiful home is what made our vacation, perfect for sleeping, spotless kitchen, and a spectacular backyard; with a swimming pool, hottub, and outside bar/grill. The view of Los angeles in the backyard was the most remarkable part though, you can see the whole city and the mountains in the far distance. It's location is perfect, you have a ton of privacy, but the city is right there! This california home is large enough to accomidate our entire family comfortably and luxuriously.
