Guestbook comments from the owner

July 18, 2011



Thanks Debbie for a wonderful stay at Casa Colinas. The house was perfect for our family of five, including three teens who enjoyed the view as much as we did. We found everything we needed and the privacy was a treat after long days in town. We hope to visit LA again and will certainly make Casa Colinas our first priority for hospitality! Thanks for everything.

Breathtaking Views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this charming villa for 3 nights when we visited LA for the first time for our son's high school senior present and our daughter's 15th birthday. The view took our breath away the moment we drove up to the driveway. The home was so cozy, charmingly decorated, with lots of windows to take in the views from every room. We took lots of great pictures on the terrace and enjoyed our morning and evening time at the home. We visited Beverly Hiils, Rodeo Drive, Hollywood Boulevard, The Grove & Farmer's Market and attended a taping of America's Got Talent and The Ellen Show during our time at the villa. Our teenagers said it was their best family vacation. This home was my favorite part of the trip. Thank you for sharing your home with the Picard family from Lafayette, Louisiana.

Charmant - Experience des années 30!

  • 5 of 5

For our French speaking friends

Charmante propriété bâtie dans les années 30, en face de Universal Studios. Coin assez tranquille, quelques hélicoptères durant le jour mais pas trop fréquents. Près de Hollywood au sud et de Burbank au nord, parfait pour ceux qui travaillent dans l'industrie.

Pour ceux qui veulent la plage et Disneyland, ce n'est pas l'endroit idéal, car un peu trop éloigné.

Pour ceux qui veulent un aperçu de la vie des années 30 à Hollywood, c'est idéal.

Cuisine assez bien équipée, salle de lavage (accessible par l'extérieur).

Très sécuritaire, et très intime (entouré d'arbres, pas de voisins immédiats).

Suggestion: véhicule pas trop gros, les routes sont sinueuses pour monter la colline.

Pour les sportifs, Runyon Canyon est à 5 minutes, vues imprenables de la région.

FANTÁSTICA ELECCIÓN

  • 5 of 5

Acabamos de llegar de unas increíbles vacaciones en California en las cuales pasamos una semana en Casa Colinas. Primero que nada esta era la primera vez que arrendábamos por este sistema de Home Away, un poco asustados al comienzo, pero finalmente salió todo fantástico y sin problemas. La elección de esta casa fue la mejor decisión que tomamos, estábamos en la duda de irnos a Santa Mónica o no, pero una vez allá nos dimos cuenta que Hollywood Hills está mucho más cerca de los lugares turísticos a dónde íbamos, además de que podíamos movilizarnos por Mulholland drive sobre las colinas y ahorrarnos el trafico de Los Ángeles para ir a Beverly Hills y The Getty por ejemplo, cosa importante en esta enorme ciudad, además de poder tomar subway para ir al centro de Los Angeles, ya que la estación está a 5 minutos de la casa con estacionamiento gratis (si es importante saber que deben comprar una tarjeta de metro por persona).

Eso sobre la ubicación, ahora otra cosa es la casa y sus dueños, primero que nada Debbie y Rick fueron un encanto, muy preocupados de todo y con toda la información de la casa y su funcionamiento muy claro. Ellos estaban en la casita de arriba de la grande y nunca supimos de su presencia, muy discretos y disponibles si se les necesitaba.

La casa es increíble, muy cómoda y con todo lo que se necesita, la cocina muy completa. Nosotros éramos 6 personas, 2 adultos y 4 adolescentes de entre 20 y 13, todos disfrutamos de la casa y sus espacios que nos permitieron tener una rica vida familiar durante nuestra estadía. La vista de la casa desde los cerros es realmente espectacular de día y de noche, uno no lo cree hasta que lo ve en vivo y directo. Almorzar en la terraza y escuchar los búhos en la mañana es una de las cosas que te hace sentirte fuera de esta enorme ciudad y disfrutarla desde distintas perspectivas.

Realmente quedamos muy satisfechos de esta elección de casa y ubicación, unas vacaciones inolvidables.

Muchas gracias Debbie y Rick por compartir su casa y permitirnos disfrutarla.

Cariños de todos nosotros.

lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and our stay in LA. The house is magical with stunning views and lots of privacy. Debbie was a helpful and gracious host and gave us all sorts of suggestions about what to do. The place is clean, well-maintained, beds are comfortable, water pressure excellent ( very important for my husband) and the kitchen well-stocked. We loved hanging out here and also rented the small studio for when our son and his girlfriend were able to join us later in the trip. I really enjoyed staying in the Hills and our drives down Nicols Canyon, hikes in nearby Runyon Canyon,the Melrose Flea Market and dinners at AOC, Mozza, Baco Mercat and Blossom as well as hard-bop jazz at the Blue Whale. This home was perfect for our family and I would recommend it to anybody as a fabulous find.

lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this house. The house was magical with lovely views and a lot of privacy. The house has two bedrooms with very comfortable beds, and great water pressure ( very important to my husband). The kitchen is well-stocked, and the living room and patios were great places to hang out as a family.

We also rented the studio for our son and his girlfriend when they were able to join the rest of our family half-way in - a perfect little annex to the main house. The property was clean, well-maintained and Debbie was a real delight to chat with and offered useful information for places in this area. Staying in the Hollywood Hills was a change for us but we loved the drives down Nicols Canyon Road, hikes in Runyon Canyon and the proximity to the Melrose Market on Sunday. AOC, Mozza, Baco Mercat, and Blossom were great restaurants and Intelligentsia and Commissary were our favourite coffee places. The Blue Whale was also a great place to catch some hard-bop jazz. Hope to visit again soon.

Perfect Hollywood Getaway with the Girls

  • 5 of 5

Three girlfriends and I just spent a magical weekend at Casa Colinas. When we got to the house and walked down onto the balcony, we couldn't believe this was going to be our home for the next three days. The view is just unreal. The house is simply beautiful and very clean and comfortable. Debbie provided thorough notes about the specifics of the house and even offered plenty of suggestions of things to do while we were in town. The location was perfect and we felt close to everything. We all agreed we'd love to make this trip and staying at the house an annual tradition!
