Valley Village House Rental Photos and Description

2-3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 7-9

Located minutes from Universal City and other major studios, this single level totally remodeled 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home is in a quiet and safe neighborhood yet close to shopping, great restaurants and local nightlife.

There is also the option of adding a 3rd bedroom which is attached to the main house which could then accommodate 9 people altogether. There is an additional charge for adding the 3rd bedroom. (please see rates information)

The main house is approximately 1900 square feet plus an additional 1000 square feet in the attached 2 bedroom, 2 bath guest house (Listing # 239789), which can be rented separately or opened up to comfortably accommodate larger family groups of 13-15 people.

We are conveniently located to all that Los Angeles has to offer.

We are close to many of the major studios, Universal City entertainment complex (featuring Universal Studios & City Walk, Universal Amphitheater concert venue, multi-theater complex, shops & restaurants), NOHO Arts district and metro-rail station to Hollywood, (walk-of-fame, Graumann's Chinese Theater & Kodak Theater, home of the 'Oscars') and to downtown, Disney Concert Hall, (Frank Gehry's architectural masterpiece), charming Olvera St, Chinatown etc.

Hollywood Bowl, Ford Theater, Griffith Park hiking and riding trails, LA Zoo and Griffith Observatory are also just minutes away.

Beautiful Home! Much more than we expected.

  • 5 of 5

The Hartsook home was the perfect vacation rental. My family of 6 needed a rental home close to my daughter's wedding venue and we were so fortunate to find Hartsook! Helen's home had everything when it came to meeting our needs. In fact, everyone fell in love with it and hated to leave. The rooms were large, comfy and warm - beautifully decorated. The gardens were soothing with several fountains - I wish I had more time to sit back, relax and enjoy the birds that took full advantage of the tranquil setting. The kitchen came fully stocked as did the bathrooms. We bbq'd one evening and enjoyed sitting on the lovely patio in this quiet neighborhood. (For those using a car service, note that for some reason cars pull up to home near back carport) I highly recommend this home. Hope you enjoy as much as we did. And yes, they are living happily ever after!

Perfect Property for the Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Hartsook property was super! It was very clean and had nice up to date appliances. It had lots of space and we appreciated it being in a lovely, quitet neighborhood as we were headed to bed by 7pm most nights being from the east coast. It provided us with all the space and amenities to make it a perfect place for three of us. The property is beautifully decorated and great thought was given to the small things one might need (from luggage racks to beach towels). We loved having the washer/dryer and being able to pack less so that we could shop more! If you stay, be sure to read about the history of Mr. Hartsook in the visitor binder. The sound of the water fountains were pleasant and we enjoyed the yard as well. I will confess that we were over the moon to have a lemon tree in the backyard!

Helen and Diana were terrific to work with! We planned this trip just weeks before our stay. They were extremely responsive in answering all our questions and working with us as we scrambled to get flights. We had two minor issues during our stay which they rectified immediately (when the previous renter took the remote to the garage, they got us a replacement within 1/2 day). Their willingness to help create the perfect vacation cannot be understated - thank you ladies - particularly during a holiday week! We loved working with you and will definitely be coming back.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your lovely review. We hope you will come back next year to work on the floats for the Rose Parade and stay with us again. Happy New Year, Helen and Diana

My home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time that we stayed at Hartsook house and it certainly will not be the last. It's very spacious, has an amazing garden to relax in and is in a quiet neighborhood but close enough to Universal Studio and the freeway to be able to get everywhere. Helen is an absolute joy to deal with. Looking forward to being back in the summer.

Feels Like Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived on Monday, July 27, 2015 to a gorgeous home that is obviously cared for with love. There was an awesome welcome basket on the kitchen counter which included; fruit and cookies. The bedrooms are beautiful with very clean bathrooms and the entire house was spaciously decorated with care. There were also plenty of extra towels, throws, and most any other regular convenience that you would have in your own home.

The Welcome binder provided much needed information about popular attractions as well as details about the local area. We had dinner at a local Thai restaurant that was recommended in the Welcome binder and the food was fabulous!

Manager Helen, was very kind and helpful which made our vacation extremely problem free. My family and I would not hesitate to book any locations managed by Helen for future travel.

Sincerely,

Victoria Parker

Comfort Home in Studio City

  • 4 of 5

My family was in town for my son's wedding and I chose this house because it appeared nicely furnished. When we arrived, we were not disappointed. This house was immaculately clean and furnished just right. The location from the freeway was about 1/4 mile and close to everywhere we needed to be. It's also nearby multiple stores for all types of shopping needs. Perfectly, situated near Universal Studios (3 exits) and a mile or two from Hollywood. There was complimentary fruit, and shampoo, conditioner and any other amenity was provided. No stone was left unturned. We were all very comfortable with our choice to stay here. Also, Helen provided good advice and was available each time we communicated. Excellent service.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect! Eight women rented this house for a long awaited get together and it was perfect. The house is beautiful and the attention to detail is incredible. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Thank you.
