Overview

Brentwood House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, sleeps 9+

Our beautiful Los Angeles home is available for your families visit to Los Angeles. Located in Brentwood, walking distance to the famed 'restaurant row' and shopping. Also walk to a public park and tennis courts just 2 blocks away, where there is a rec center and playground. Hop on our bikes or drive to Santa Monica; the beach is 4 miles away! Minutes from the Skirball and Getty Museums. Our street is a quiet residential street, and it a dead end so there is no through traffic. We live on a cul-de-sac, so it's very quiet. Yard is completely fenced, well behaved dogs are welcome! Lovely private backyard with a built in pool and jacuzzi, patio with barbeque, lots of seating for outdoor dinners, and covered back porch. Close to 405 freeway for access to all LA attractions, minutes from UCLA, Westwood and Beverly Hills. Very convenient to LAX airport.

House is east coast style shingle home from the 1940's. Furnished with comfortable antiques and all amenities. Lovely light, lots of windows-- charm galore! Perfect for visiting your UCLA student, or for graduation! Please note: No parties or events at the home.

Why Michelle Joyner chose Los Angeles County

We fell in love with this house and you will, too! We were looking for a home to raise our family, and being from the East coast we knew this was the house for us when we first saw it. It has a very New England feel, lots of light and windows and charm galore. The house is quirky and inviting-- and very comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your warm and welcoming home and neighborhood with us. We enjoyed every minute of our LA experience-- seeing Stanford win the Rose Bowl, shopping in Beverly Hills, visiting Universal Studios and relaxing in your home and visiting several friendly Brentwood restaurants. Thanks again for your hospitality. Happy New Year!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for an LA family vacation in August. The whole family (of 5) was able to stay together, each of us in our own bedrooms, with more conveniences than we would have found staying in a local hotel. We were able to enjoy the private kitchen, outdoor eating area, and pool each day. Michelle left us a list of local restaurants and activities to make life easier. We were able to contact her easily through email during the week when we had questions come up. She was quick to respond and take care of everything. We especially enjoyed the central air conditioning, which was not available in other rental homes of this size and price during the summer months! This house seemed to be conveniently located to major West LA locations and activities, and was close to major freeways, although nestled in an unsuspecting col-de-sac street with a suburban feel, which made the week we stayed feel more peaceful. Would recommend this home to anyone looking for a business or leisure stay in the Los Angeles area in a group of 4-8 people!

Beautiful home in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, large and extremely comfortable house in an ideal westside LA location--easily accessible to the 405 and Barrington, San Vicente or andMontana Blvds with direct access to Westwood and Beverly Hills to the east and Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades to the west. It was perfect for our family of five--with lots of room to spare. Exquisitely decorated--like an Irish or English country home--this book-lined, antique-filled house is a truly relaxing oasis in the heart of one of LA's most desirable residential areas. It is situated within walking distance (a couple of blocks) to an array of excellent restaurants, cafes, Starbucks, The Beanery, upscale retail stores, as well as a Whole Foods and gas stations. The backyard is as charming and beautiful as the house's interior with a very nice pool and sitting/eating areas. Michelle was immensely accommodating and exceptionally easy to interact with: swiftly replying to e-mails, providing all necessary information, and refunding the security deposit promptly. We loved the house--especially the breakfast nook--and would definitely return and indeed highly recommend it.

Great space!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a week stay at this family house and it was the perfect "home base" for extended family during my brother's wedding. Everything was as described, and it was easy working with the owner on booking, instructions, and questions. We loved having the 3 living rooms plus outside and the kitchen to gather. The pool was a treat for our 1 year old and the location was perfect to walk to stores/restaurants and get to the beach. Because it is the owner's primary house, there are lots of their personal items around, but it was easy to work around. Thank you!!!

UCLA Grad Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home in order to attend the graduation of our son from UCLA. There were 7 of us in total and we wanted to be able to relax and enjoy each other's company while attending the graduation ceremonies. The home more than met all of our expectations. Grandma and Grandpa especially enjoyed the master bedroom suite. We spent much of our free time enjoying the yard and pool. This home is in a great neighborhood and it is easy to travel to see sights, shop or enjoy the beach. I would highly recommend this property.

Extremely convenient location; in the middle of everything, yet quiet and private.
