About Camilla More

I have lived in this house for 24 years and absolutely love it! It has charm and is light and bright and happy. My boyfriend and I love to entertain and so the house has a free flow to it where the inside and outside become one. We travel during the summer so we decided to offer it to others to stay in. I love to design and believe that the charm of this house is the simplicity , the bright colors throughout and the gorgeous pool and gardens with barbeque and lots of entertainment areas, offer guests the perfect retreat, just minutes from the exciting hustle and bustle of the restaurants on Ventura Boulevard.

Camilla More purchased this house in 1986

Why Camilla More chose San Fernando Valley

Studio City has become the 'Beverly Hills' of the valley! The shopping on Ventura Boulevard is outstanding - and there is a wonderful Farmers Market every Sunday where there are pony rides and a petting zoo for children. Studio City is conveniently close to the major Studios - Universal, Warner Brothers, CBS - and also an easy drive to the beaches, Six Flags magic Mountain and Disneyland. Hollywood , the Griffith Park Observatory, LACMA etcetc are 20 mins drive. In Studio City you are in a peaceful family community that is buzzing but not frenetic!

What makes this house unique

Once you have arrived at this house you will not feel like leaving! The view over the valley and surrounding mountains from the front deck is awe- inspiring. The feeling of tranquility and relaxation will overcome you as you lie by the pool or dine al fresco at night under the bamboo awning. You are on top of a knoll so there is no one looking in on you. Completely private.

Breathtaking Views, Beautiful Home, Quintessential California Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (2 adults, 3 kids aged 12.5, 7 and 3.5 years) thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in this lovely HOME. It is just that - a real home that is gorgeous in its location, cozy feel, landscaping and decor.

Camilla was a pleasure to deal with from the start of the rental process six months prior to our stay. Her home is perfectly appointed with absolutely everything we needed to enjoy our stay, including a very helpful collection of area attraction listings.

The View: You know when you climb the 30+ steps to the house, that there is something magical waiting at the top. We literally pinched ourselves every time we looked out each of the many windows - all of LA seems to be sprawled out in the view!

The drive up the the streets off Ventura Blvd. is so cool - we lived like locals while we were there. We were guaranteed a parking spot right in front of the house which was so convenient, and we always felt secure with the gated entry.

Kitchen, all three bedrooms and three bathrooms had everything we needed and more. The pool: gorgeous and the sun shone on it from 7am to well past 6pm! The outdoor area was cozy and perfect to lounge around the pool. Nights on the front porch watching the twinkling city lights were right out of a movie.

The area: Studio City - so much beauty to take in everywhere! It feels like a sweet town but is so close to surrounding hot spots too. Great shopping on Ventura Blvd, and an amazing Sunday Farmers' Market minutes away!

Such a fantastic week - we are counting the days til we can return. Thank you Camilla for your help and hospitality!

Excellent Southern California Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had an extremely enjoyable experience during our stay here. My family and I decided on a trip to Southern California for our spring break. Camilla (owner) was very responsive and accommodating.

When we arrived, the house was immaculate, and accommodating. I have rented many vacation homes, and this one had extra attention to making it easy on the vacationer. Tons of towels, dishes, every utensil you could want, blender for drinks, bbq, heat lamp for off-season visits, etc. They had an excellent binder that you could read in less than 10 minutes and immediately know everything you would need about the home and the surrounding area - including excellent restaurant suggestions. It had a wonderful charm, and the feel of a home away from home.

The property is centrally located to everything. We did a day in Universal for the new Harry Potter "Hogsmeade" attraction which was great to see - but we actually enjoyed the exploring & relaxing part of our vacation more. We did a self planned tour of Beverly Hills, went to the Griffith observatory (must visit free attraction with breathtaking views outside and fun / educational spacey stuff inside), visited the Santa Monica pier, drove the Pacific Coast Highway down from Ventura through Malibu and stopping at little places we found online along the way.

After busy days exploring, it was great to enjoy a margarita on the front deck overlooking the view, and to take a dip in the pool.

I definitely would recommend this vacation home to anyone, and would definitely repeat the next time we want to stay on the area!

Los Angeles dream stay

  • 5 of 5

Staying in town for a quick stay from Paris I was very happy to find Camilla's home to be a beautiful American home on top of Studio City Hills The decks overlook the valley and give you the most beautiful sunsets!

Camilla must have the best cleaning team in Los Angeles! The house was immaculate and all the sheets and towels were soft and smelled lovely! Very fresh! Unfortunately I was there in the winter so I couldn't test out the pool! (Next time perhaps!)


Camillas home is something out of a movie, it's cozy and very welcoming!

I had no trouble understanding the home tv system & the wifi was super quick! Lovely hikes down the road and so close to Ventura Blvd which is the new trendy place in LA

great restaurants and pubs all around!

And a sugar fish if you're an amateur of sushi!

Owner's Response: This guest is unique to our rental experience in that she has written a deliberately exaggerated critique of our extremely clean and conscientiously cared for house. Another 27 reviews over many years of service will reflect a different 5 star story, of a cared for and magical property. So I ask potential guests to look past it - and please call me with any concerns you may have regarding the property and our maintenance standards. We are upset to see that there are manipulators In the renting community but we remain trusting as we have had such wonderful guests, who have all enjoyed their stays immensely. I should add, this guest and her husband initially stayed one month and then extended their rental contract for a further 1 1/2 months, so evidently they were comfortable in my house.

Luxury Private Hillside Retreat with Pool & Breathtaking Views

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this Vacation Rental. A lovely place to relax with friends and family. Memorable time for our family of 6. Enjoyed the pool, the library, the exquisite antique decor and beautiful paintings adorned the house. Camilla was more than helpful and attended to issues promply. Quite a central place to visit the attractions. You will need a car. We look forward to staying there again next time we make it to LA.
