About Lloyd Kurtz

Lloyd Kurtz has lived in this house since 1990. He is a licensed contractor and enjoys gardening, traveling, photography and telling jokes (sometimes some really good ones!).

Lloyd Kurtz purchased this house in 1998

Why Lloyd Kurtz chose Studio City

This property is a 1920's Tudor style home. Legend has it that the house was built by Mr. Lankershim himself, of whom Lankershim Blvd was named after. Lankershim helped to develop the San Fernando Valley in the 1920's and 30's. The movie Chinatown with Jack Nicholsen basically portrays Lankershim's story,

What makes this house unique

What make this such a great neighborhood is the proximity to all of the fabulous shopping and dining that Ventura Blvd is famous for. It is quiet and safe as well as being a fabulous walking area with panoramic views; there is a reason the stars live around here.

The perfect place for two people to stay in LA!

  • 5 of 5
My goodness, I'm hesitant to write about this absolute gem tucked away on a beautiful hillside street in Studio City. Why? Because I want it to be available whenever we visit Los Angeles! Writing about this wonderful getaway is almost like writing a review of my husband so he'll be up for consideration by others. I don't want to share! But here goes, because the begrudging truth is that I actually do want others to enjoy this place as much as we did.

My 17-year-old daughter and I enjoyed three nights and four days at this very conveniently located, beautiful little apartment/suite on the bottom floor of Lloyd and JoAnna's absolutely gorgeous tudor home. We were in Studio City during a visit of colleges and various acting classes and workshops my daughter had put together. We've been to Studio City several times, but never stayed at any accommodation like this. It was such a treat to stay in this impeccable, beautifully furnished studio, complete with little kitchen and resort-like bathroom! Two beds, too, should you like to sleep separately, which we do! (One is a couch, but quite comfortable when it pulls out to be a bed.)

We saved so much money by cooking our own breakfast and lunch each day. The weather was perfect, and we'd often dine on the front patio/veranda, which overlooks the valley, but better yet, overlooks the beautiful grounds of this hillside mecca. It's SO peaceful compared with anywhere else we've stayed in the Valley. And the price is extremely reasonable. Trust me: You will not find anything of this value in Studio City. Even the cheapy little motel-like place just a half mile down Ventura Blvd is more expensive, and there you just get a not-great room. Never again!

The only down side is that you probably won't want to leave. It's hard to go from the bucolic hill into the valley and the rest of the world and back home. And if you have the pleasure of meeting owners/hosts Lloyd and JoAnna, it makes it even harder. You'll feel like you're staying at your home away from home if they have anything to do with it. They're gracious, friendly, and fun. They give you privacy, but are there when you need them. And if you're lucky enough to be home when JoAnna, a (former?) professional pianist, from Canada, plays the grand/baby grand piano upstairs (which she did on an afternoon when we came back for lunch), you will be blown away by the music and her artistry.

Can't recommend this place highly enough.

It was a pleasure to have you and your daughter stay here. I'm looking forward to your next stay, I must admit your review is a little overwelming. Thank you.

Nice and cozy

My daughter and I just got back from staying at this cute little guest suite for a whole month. The owners, Lloyd and Joanne are absolutely amazing. They were so helpful and friendly. The guest suite is stocked with all the supplies you need. It is very clean and the bed is comfortable too. Parking is a breeze and there is a nice little view when standing on the porch. The house is centrally located with easy access to freeways.

This apartment is located in a great area in Studio City. The hosts, Joanne and Lloyd, were very welcoming and maintain a great property. The bathroom is fabulous and large with a great jet tub and spacious dual head shower. The kitchen has all of the utensils and appliances you need. The bed is comfortable with a great mattress and cozy sheets. The wifi is extremely fast. The patio gives you a great view of the city and is set in the wonderful garden that smells of jasmine making it a wonderful place to relax and unwind. You couldn't ask for better hosts. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for an excellent place to relax in a busy city.

Spacious, private, and comfortable.

This rental is literally a home away from home! The listing and photos accurately describe this beautiful and clean rental. The kitchen has all you would need if you want to cook and the bathroom is modern with a great shower and the perfect amount of towels. Lloyd, the owner is very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, you can drive up and down Ventura Blvd. for great restaurants and bars. I am going to highly recommend this location to any family or friends that happen to be visiting L.A.

This property is located in the Studio City hills, but within walking distance to Ventura Blvd. Great shopping and dining are moments away. Universal and CBS Studios are 5 minutes from the home and the Hollywood Bowl is just a 10 minute drive.
