Overview

Culver City House Rental Photos and Description

3BR/3BTH with a Chefs Kitchen in a central location to everything.

**Home is continually updated (most recent Oct 14') at the request of guests to give the best amenities possible! Most recently the addition of a custom built walnut California King to master bedroom, espresso maker in addition to Keurig, bluetooth wireless surround sound to connect from your phone or Ipod, and two Queen AeroBeds for additional guests to sleep on for large groups.**

This modern designer boutique hotel style home in more than 2050 square feet is located just 3 miles straight down Jefferson Blvd to the beach, minutes to Santa Monica, Hollywood, Manhattan Beach, and Beverly Hills. Walking distance to Sprouts Farmers Market and Pavilions for fresh and organic groceries, and also to Westfield at Culver City shopping mall with its great restaurants and shopping. A very short drive or 20 minute walk to The Bridge with an IMAX theater and more shops.

Beautiful custom furniture, maple hardwood floors, wood burning fireplace, 120+' projector screen, and an array of exotic tile inside and out will make you disappointed to leave. In addition, all the bed linens are at least 400 thread count Egyptian cotton and sateen to ensure you always get a good nights rest and luxurious spa like towels for all baths as well.

The very spacious master suite has vaulted ceilings and a custom Walnut California King sized bed with a Posturepedic memory foam mattress, Pyrenees down comforter and finished off with 540 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets for a great nights sleep! In addition, the master has an attached and private spa-style bathroom with sit-in steam shower equipped with Grohe shower head and body sprayer along with separate jacuzzi tub for relaxing after a long day seeing the city. 36' flat screen with premium satellite television and DVD player will ensure you are entertained or relaxed at all hours, depending on your preference.

The 2nd bedroom features a top quality full size bed with a memory foam mattress, down comforter, and Egyptian cotton sheets, Ipod dock/alarm clock speakers, and a full bathroom with tub/shower just outside of the bedroom.

The 3rd bedroom is an office/bedroom and has a top of the line full size futon which truly rivals the other beds in terms of comfort and has bedding like all other beds in the house.

The Living room has massive HD projector which expands up to 120' along with 5.1 built in surround sound and DVD player to make movies or sporting events memorable. If you want to listen to music you can connect wirelessly via bluetooth to the surround sound system or plug in your phone/Ipod via an auxiliary cable to enjoy the wonderful sound system. Complete satellite (DirecTV) with all premium movie channels and cable. Sleeping arrangement in the living room is two very large, flat, comfortable and firm (not too firm) couches which easily convert into two separate beds larger than a twin each or combined into one larger bed between the size of a queen and king. 3rd full bathroom with shower is located conveniently away from other bedrooms for its own privacy for those guests sleeping in the living room.

The large and open, custom designed kitchen featured on TV cooking shows is loaded with everything you will need to make gourmet meals. You are equipped with GE Monogram: convection/standard oven, microwave, refrigerator, Keurig Coffee Maker and a Jenn-Air 5 burner cook top. Toaster oven, panini press, blender, rice cooker, pots, pans, and very nice and contemporary stemware round it all out. In addition, you will find all the basic spices, oils, etc that you need to make your culinary experience complete without having to purchase every little thing.

BARBECUE:

If you want to enjoy the beautiful Southern California weather, the large gas outdoor stainless steel BBQ and seating area, backyard fire pit, and outdoor speakers make the indoor/outdoor experience complete.

INTERNET/BUSINESS/OFFICE NEEDS:

Cable wireless internet with download speeds of 15-20 mbs/sec will ensure you are connected all over the property including the backyard. Home office is equipped with a computer, printer, scanner and telephone with free calls anywhere in the US. All for your use.

Washer and Dryer located in seperate laundry area of home.

Recessed halogen lighting throughout the home with dimmers lets you set any mood you like.

Home is equipped with a tankless hot water heater to ensure no guests run out of hot water when using any of the 3 full bathrooms with showers.

Central HVAC (Heating and Air Conditioning) ensures you are comfortable at all times.

Wood burning fireplace to heat up those brisk evenings (not very many in Los Angeles!).

Spa quality towels/linens, more than enough blankets to cover all guests and top of the line pillows for all the sleeping areas are provided.

Home is perfect for vacationers (foreign and domestic), family get-togethers, corporate clients, filming, and temporary housing for local residents needing short term accommodations.

RATES:

The rates are calculated using the base rent below for triple occupancy and then an additional fee of $40/guest per night after the 3rd guest. Property sleeps 4 in real beds, 2 on a futon which has the top of the line futon mattress and rivals the beds in terms of comfort, 2 on comfortable couches in the living room, and 4 on 2 queen size air mattresses (AeroBeds) which are very comfortable and you can read the guest reviews about them. 12 total comfortably.

Base rates:

$250/night (triple occupancy)

CHECK IN 4PM

CHECK OUT 11AM

** I will be flexible with check in and out as long as there are not other guests coming or leaving the same day.

PARKING:

Driveway parking for one car and wide open street parking for essentially as many vehicles as you would like.

About Timo Ketola

I grew up in Santa Monica and have lived in So Cal my home life. I love to travel all over the world and also enjoy any outdoor activity and sports. Yoga, golf, fishing, hiking/backpacking are just a few of my interests.

In my travels I have stayed at many fantastic hotels and resorts and try to bring that same experience for travelers staying in my home.

Timo Ketola purchased this house in 2005

Why Timo Ketola chose Culver City

The property is truly beautiful and was constructed only a few years back and is in a fabulous location for everything the city of LA has to offer. If you want to see it all, then this puts you in about as central a location as you can find.

Didn't work as Planned, but the Service is Exceptional

Didn't work as Planned, but the Service is Exceptional

My stay is with a group of 9 others taking a leadership course for the weekend. It didn't take long to notice one of the aero beds is leaking and the person sleeping on that aero bed woke up on the floor. I communicated this matter to the owner while he is out of town. He sent an alternative bed, which didn't work out and I demanded a true replacement and it did arrive. This owner truly cares for your interest and the 10 of us did have a blast in the house! The place is spacious, clean, modern, inviting, and a place of happy memories!! Choose to stay at this place and you will not be disappointed (even if things don't work out the way it's meant to).

Owner's Response: Glad you guys enjoyed and sorry for the little hiccup! I tried to send the exact same bed to you guys but since I was out of town the person bought the wrong one. In the end I'm glad it all worked!

You guys are welcome back at any time!

This property is very well appointed and extremely charming. The kitchen is ultra modern with all up to date appliances. The bedrooms are well situated within the house to give maximum privacy for multiple guests. In general the house flows well and has a very pieceful vibe!! We definitely would rent again from this property

We arrvied and thought "ok is is cool"
House appears to be bright and well thought out untill u realize there are problems. deferred maintaince and poor fit and finish plumbing wise,worst choice of light switchs ever, raise there own problems.
leaving the car in the way(dont scracht the $30 benzs) was not well thought out either.
Use VRBO again? yes, but steer clear of 60 year old houses in LA

Owner's Response: Hi Andreas, I am sorry about the issues which you mentioned and I want you and everyone else to know that they have been corrected. Things do occur when renting a property and I always strive to correct them immediately. Upon re-entering the property after your stay I saw that the light switch in the office seemed to be malfunctioning. It was immediately replaced with a top of the line Lutron light switch and dimmer.

The only other issue during your stay was that the dishwasher was not working. This was brought to my attention by the previous guests who checked out the same day you checked in. This could not be repaired in time before your arrival. My apologies. After your check out with a few days between the next guest coming, the dishwasher was replaced with a brand new Bosch dishwasher.

It was also an unusual situation where I had to leave my car in the driveway for the weekend of your stay. I made sure that there was still room to park your vehicle as well however.

For the inconveniences during your stay, I am willing to offer you a free nights stay if you come back to Los Angeles.

All the best and my apologies again. All measures have been taken to correct the issues you mentioned.

Cozy, quiet, close to everything - great location!

  • 5 of 5
We came from Europe for a 2 weeks vacation in California - out of which we spent 9 nights at Timo's house. The top 3 qualities of this property are, in my opinion: 1. the location of the house - close to all the attractions in LA area (Disneyland, beaches, Hollywood, fashion outlets etc.), in a quiet and safe place; 2. the house itself - very nice, cozy, with personality; 3. last, but definitely not least, the excellent communication with the owner, his professionalism and rapid response to our questions.
Everything was functioning exactely as described and everything was clean. The description of the house is correct, it looks as described on the site. I must recognize that at the beginning I was a bit reticent about renting someone's home, and not a property which is exclusively for rental - but it is fine, as you don't interfere with the owner's stuff. Wi-Fi is excellent - very important for us!
We really enjoyed the fact that very close to the house it's a 24/7 shop where you can buy your coffee anytime and we enjoyed ours at the (very!) early morning hours the first days when we were jetlagging. I suppose that this kind of store is quite common in the States, but for us it was nice to discover it!
Bottom line: staying at Timo's was a pleasure. We would definitely come again and would recommend the place to friends. The damage deposit was refunded the next day after we left. Excellent vacation.
