Frank Villafuerte purchased this house in 2001

More private surrounded with beautiful ficus trees and clean.
So nowhere in LA is close to everything, but this house is a convenient drive from tourist locations. Frank is very nice and replies to any questions right away. The kitchen is fully equipped, separate dining area, washer dryer and big screen tv and a comfy couch. Even the small things like tourist brochures and maps are provided. There is a pretty outdoor area where you could eat if the weather is good. You park behind a gate (it is a short driveway, so maybe not a minivan, just a midsize vehicle). Also try Ysabel restaurant if you are looking for a special occasion place. Paramount tour fun also.
This little house is bursting with character. The first thing we noticed is that it resembles the "Secret Garden" or "Alice in Wonderland." The property is enclosed within a tall box hedge and locked gate. Once you enter, there is tidy landscaping and patio furniture where you can take your morning coffee. Unfortunately for us, we seemed to have brought the rain with us from Nebraska, so didn't spend any time outside. The house is decorated tastefully. There are two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, which made it perfect for the needs of our adult family. We had lots to celebrate: Christmas and our son's engagement at Universal Studios. The location is ideal. We walked to the tourist area of downtown Hollywood, the grocery store, local restaurants, and to a wonderful church for Christmas Eve services. Universal Studios is a short 10-15 minute drive and the Burbank Airport is not much further. The driveway accommodated one car, but we had no problem finding additional parking on the streets. The area felt very safe. Finally, Frank Villafuerte is a prince. He is professional and congenial. I highly...no, emphatically...recommend this place if you are looking for something special.
My husband and I are 70. We spent a week here doing tourist things. Frank has thought of everything one might need to hit the ground running. The house is in excellent shape and just as pictured. We like to eat breakfast in and have a cocktail before going out to dinner so prefer a house or apartment to a hotel room.
Everything is very convenient. Ralphs Grocery Store is just two blocks away.
We flew into Bob Hope Burbank Airport which was about 30 minutes away by car. We did not rent a car but used the subway and Uber and Lyft. The closest subway stop was about 1/2 mile away on Hollywood Blvd and Highland. We never waited more than 3 minutes for an Uber or Lyft ride. It was so much easier and cheaper than renting a car and having to pay for parking and find our way around an unfamiliar city.
There are many many restaurants within close range. We usually took a Lyft to and from dinner and all our rides were less than $10.
We chose this house because we thought the location was central to all the things we wanted to see. It worked perfectly! We took the Warner Bros Tour, a walking tour of Downtown LA leaving from Union Station, Villa Getty, Los Angeles County Art Museum, Hop on Hop Off Bus, Walk of Fame, Rodeo Drive, Santa Monica, and the Petersen Car Museum.
My family of 4 stayed in Frank's home from 11/1 - 11/8/2016 for my Daughters sweet 16 destination trip. First let me say the pre planning and prep that Frank has done to make your stay easy including a book inside the home with all the pertinent info you could need, to a onsite gated home and driveway. House was clean and well stocked from almost anything you could need besides groceries and snacks to please the 2 teens for a week. And communications with Frank are super quick to respond and he will address any and all questions you could have. I highly recommend the property if your going to be in the area. Why stay in a hotel when you can have a home for almost the same price with all the creature comforts of your own home. Thanks again for the opportunity to share your home !!
I feel the pictures don't do the house justice. The wall that’s created by the hedge makes a perfect oasis from everything, the sitting area outside provides a good place to have morning coffee or breakfast. Having a secure parking spot inside the gate is priceless. I was extremely satisfied with my stay; the house is clean and well maintained. It is centrally located to many tourist spots and restaurants; I will definitely stay here again.
This was my first experience with HomeAway and I was a little nervous about what to expect. Once I entered, the property it was better than we expected. The moment I walked in Frank made my family feel as if he was a close friend. I did not imaging an owner would be so nice I felt so comfortable with Frank and at his home. I cannot express how comfortable everything was. I expected too at the least wash the sheets and towels, Frank’s home was a clean and nice as a five star hotel. All I had to do was relax and start my vacation. When we arrived, there were cold beverages for our enjoyment. My husband and I did not plan to cook on vacation but everything was so convenient that we decided to save money and cook breakfast at the house each morning which allowed us to relax each morning before a day of touring.
The area is safe and the driveway is private and secure. Frank’s home is in the middle of everything, we were close to the Hollywood walk of fame and all the action. Although it is close to the excitement, it was not to close where we would be in all the activity. We were around the corner from the television show LA Ink. There is a nice grocery store in walking distance. The yard was nice and set up for relaxing and having your morning coffee. Frank made sure we were comfortable and he gave us complete privacy yet he was only a phone call or text away.
Oh and although there was a $300 deposit fee which most people feel as if they will never see again, Frank had issued my credit before I was on my flight home.
I wished Frank had property I other cities because I would book now. I hope that all owners are a nice as Frank but I do not think so since I returned from my vacation on September 20 and I just received an email from another own that their property is not available, (really) after my vacation.
Sorry for the long review but I just had to let Frank know that we are grateful for everything.
Frank you rock and I would not think twice about staying at one of Frank’s property again. I just wish I could keep him all to myself but that just would not be fair.
Love you frank and you were a lifesaver; we really had the best time.
Universal Studio, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Dolby Theater, LA Museum, The Grove, Farmer's Market, Griffith Park Observatory, Getty Museum, Beverly Hills, Venice & Malibu Beach.
