Great views

  • 5 of 5

If We ever go back to the Los Angeles area We would stay here again! The views alone are worth it. We could have spent the whole weekend sitting on the back patio enjoying taking in the hills and the city in the distance.

We enjoyed the peace and quiet and use of the pool.

The studio is as described and the pictures are accurate.

We did many tourist activities all over greater Los Angeles including Venice Beach, farmers market, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and this studio rental was just a short drive to all of those places.

I would recommend staying here.

Would certainly stay here again.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is cute. More comfort than luxury but with spectacular canyon views.

Like all addresses in Bel-Air it's difficult to find. I used the Waze app which worked brilliantly.

There is a coffee maker but don't forget to bring coffee like I did because it's miles to the local Starbucks.

My wife and I had a busy trip planned with a lot of L.A. boxes to check but it's so quiet here and the the bed is great so there was a lot of sleeping in instead. Well that's why it's called a vacation.

Even better than I had dreamed!

I am almost reluctant to tell you how amazing Gordon and Atsuko's vacation home really is...I want to keep this gem to myself! Seriously, everything about this home is first class! The owners are friendly and welcoming, the bed is so comfortable you won't want to get up and the VIEW! I have been to LA quite a bit and have never experienced how the "rich and famous" live until now. Thank you again for sharing your lovely home and of course your sweet dog Jack! I hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. This year our pre-Halloween weather is extending summer with perfect skies and beautiful sunsets (or as we say in southern California... "just another ho-hum day in paradise"). Thanks so much for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again. G&A

stunning views

  • 4 of 5

How else would we be able to feel like we are living in Bel Air? The winding drive up through all the gated drives and mansions was so intriguing and breath-taking. We felt like natives of the area. The view from the back of the pool house was stunning during the day and even more at night! We would definitely return when we could stay longer!!

Perfect paradise! Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Atsuko and Gordon were amazing people and their place is absolutely beautiful!! This is a super cute and very comfortable guest home with everything you need. The pool is very nice! We enjoyed a swim in salt water. You will not be disappointed in your stay here. We would never have the opportunity to drive through the hills of Bel Air and be so close to Beverly Hills. We loved staying here and hope to be back!! Stay here if you get the chance.

Between the pool and the mountainside there lies a place called Serenity

  • 5 of 5

The photos are beautiful, and accurate. Our stay exceeded our expectations, with regard to the comfort of the accommodations, the graciousness of our hosts, and the View, the View, the View! A photo I took of the view is now the wallpaper on my phone. A word of advice: when you plan your itinerary, make sure to schedule time to just sit on the porch, and drink it in. The location, too, is wonderful, close enough to everything you want to go to, yet away from the noise. And simply driving through the neighborhood is delightful. We are truly grateful to Atsuko and Gordon for the experience, the memories ... and the Serenity.

Owner's Response: Rick, those are very kind words and we like your comment about serenity. We try to give visitors privacy so their experience is ‘spa like’ and an oasis in the city. A&G
