About Camilla More
I have owned this house for 24 years and absolutely love it! It has charm and is light and bright and happy. I love to entertain and so the house has a free flow to it where the inside and outside become one. We travel alot now and our children are now grown 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. I am born in London but moved to LA in my twenties, and have never tired of the blue skies, bright sun, palm trees, and the beaches!
Camilla More purchased this House in 1987
Why Camilla More chose Studio City
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!
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!
super-comfy vacation pad
Our family of four really enjoyed our stay at this property in April 2018. Like all HomeAway properties we've used, this one was exceedingly comfortable, well-equipped with everything we could have wanted and more, and as-advertised (photos and reviews were accurate). Parking was occasionally a minor challenge, but eminently manageable. Be aware that there are lots of steps to the house! But once there you will be rewarded with great views, excellent beds, quiet and privacy, and a charming pool surrounded by greenery and plants. We wish it had been a touch warmer weather-wise so we could have enjoyed breakfast outside, but there's no controlling the weather. Hosts were available as needed, and helpful but otherwise non-intrusive. We highly recommend this house for your vacation base!
Great place and location
Right in the middle of everything and the property was perfect for our family of 4 ( 2 teenage kids). Pool was used extensively by our kids, and the property was set up nicely for everyone to have their own space. Location was great, just be careful of navigating the streets as its a bit tight!
Just an FYI- the owners do stay on property in the smaller guest home. It wasn't an issue for us but we must have missed that in the contract. That being said, it was still a very private vacation and only was in contact, via email/phone, with the owners when I requested info on activities in the area.
Camilla has thought of everything.
You won’t want to leave.
So happy you had a great stay! Please return soon!
We loved everything about this home!!
We loved everything about this house, the games, pool, lights, fresh flowers...and the views were wonderful!! I will definitely stay here again!!
Terrific property. My family really enjoyed the pool and the quiet.
This is a very nice house with a great private, secluded heated pool. The owners were very attentive. The pool heating wasn’t working and they had it fixed in less than 12 hours. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again!
It was unfortunate that the pool pump needed servicing but we have a great maintenance team who understand how important the comfort and happiness of our guests is to us.
I am so glad to hear when problems are solved and guests are both understanding and grateful of the speedy attention to the problem.
