About Brigitte

Foodie, Yoga, travel, people.

Why Brigitte chose Tarzana

The property has several unique features such as the solar heated pool which provides for a deliciously warm pool several months per year -- usually from about mid-May through mid-October. Otherwise the pool will be too cool or cold to swim or play.

Also, this pool is unusually large for a private property pool and large enough to swim laps

The house is spacious and bright, comfortable, extremely clean, fine appointments and amenities throughout the house.

The property is centrally located in Los Angeles; ideal set point for the 'L.A thing to do' and the Los Angeles attractions, also close to the beach. Plus many cool shopping and cool restaurants around, very centrally located and walkable to several stores.

What makes this house unique

Fabulous location: close to be beach, close to Beverly Hills, Universal city and close to the studios, Studio city, Melrose district, close to great shopping, close to the 101 & 405 freeways, and walking distance to fabulous to-go prepared food places such as Sansai, Pollo Loco, Ralphs, Pavillions, Baja Fresh and more places.

Open floor plan but the living areas are separate from the bedrooms . There is total privacy between the 3 bedrooms.

Very spacious, comfortable, extremely clean, fine appointments and amenities throughout the house.

The outdoor is present with wall of French doors opening wide into the pool area and lush gardens about 1/4 acre (1,500M2) flat of grass to enjoy with mature trees and lush vegetation. Absolutely beautiful and serene.

We had a beautiful stay.

  • 5 of 5

The title sum it all up. This house is beautiful and lovely. We stayed here for 5 days and had a great time. My two year old nephew love the pool side. We wish it was summer when we checked in but we will definitely come back and stay here again.Thank you Brigette for accommodating us and providing us a lovely home for the weekend. Cheers! :)

Superior layout for an extended family or group

  • 5 of 5

We were in Los Angeles for a funeral and not expecting great things because it was such short notice. However, this was a fabulous place for our extended family to stay and to comfort each other. The area is a good one for walks and for runs which are important to several family members. The house itself could not be better laid out for an extended group. We were 7 people but the separation of the bedrooms from the rest of the house worked well for us. An added bonus is the door between the kitchen and the family room. It provided much needed quiet when some people needed to sleep. The French doors to the yard are a wonderful Southern California feature opening up to a magnificent back yard. There are plenty of spaces and comfortable furniture to relax in both in the home and in the yard. The WiFi is excellent, the main tv allowed us to follow the olympics in our down time and the several seating areas provided ample space for our last minute planning efforts. While it was too cold to use the pool it is kept up nicely providing a beautiful focal point in the yard. The kitchen has everything for cooking or grilling and is nicely laid out and well updated. The table and chairs make a welcome early morning gathering spot. It was helpful to have the washer and dryer when workout clothes needed washing. Brigitte stocks the kitchen and baths with good quality products and provides the basics so that it would be unnecessary to shop if you don’t want to cook. The house is a great mid-century design with all the modern updates anyone could ask for so it has character without sacrificing comfort. I recommend this home for groups and large families as a great spot to relax and enjoy what Southern California has to offer.

Quiet safe neighborhood convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Owner very welcoming and helpful. House is older, but classic and charming, with plenty of space and an amazing back yard/pool area. The house was very clean. We had 6 people in our group, 2 couples and 2 singles. The 2 and a half bathrooms and 3+ bedrooms worked out perfectly for us. Brigitte was gracious to allow us to hold a small bridal gift opening in the backyard; such a perfect and beautiful setting! Highly recommend this property for adults and older teens.

Great Location! close to Santa Monica Beach and Universal Studios

  • 4 of 5

This house is in a great location, it is an older house whitch you can hear when you walked the wood floor and we did had issues with the Air condition and the hot tub .Brigitte was great at helping us with that matter. We enjoyed the pool and the way she set up our rooms to make our stay pleasant. Thank you Brigitte We loved your house and LA.

Owner's Response: Hello Claudia.... Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The A/C was on its last breath during your stay here at the house, cooling the house but leaking... As soon as you left and before the next travelers rented the house. The whole set, comprising of the system and the compressor, was replaced with an energy efficient system. Thank you again for your understanding and patience, it helped me a lot during this stressful situation. It was great meeting you and I hope to see you again during your next visit to L.A. Best regards to all of you. Brigitte

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Ou family had a very enjoyable stay during the Thanksgiving holiday. Brigitte went out of her way to be sure we had everything we needed. The home is so welcoming and well-equipped for cooking and relaxing. Although we didn't use the pool since it was November, we enjoyed our time on the patio and her beautiful landscaping. Thank you Brigitte, for being so accommodating!
