About Sam

We're a family with 3 children and have lived in Los Angeles for 20 years, having come here via Canada (Debbie) and Australia (Sam). We have a large lot and recently built the studio guest house at the other end of our property. We've thoroughly enjoyed hosting visitors and helping them enjoy their stay in the city as much as we enjoy living here.

Sam purchased this studio in 2010

Why Sam chose Rancho Park

The location is great. It's a short 10 minute drive to the beautiful beaches in Santa Monica and Venice where you can swim, surf or just watch all the interesting people walk by. Go to a concert at the world famous Hollywood Bowl, hike in one of the many canyons, attend a baseball game at Dodger Stadium or watch the Los Angeles Lakers play basketball. If golfing or tennis is your thing then you're just a short 5 minute walk away from the beautiful Ranch Park golf course and tennis center. Beverly Hills, Westwood, UCLA, Universal Studios and Hollywood are all also just a short drive away.

Into shopping? We have a very large malls within a short walk of the house and the open, famous Century City mall is a 5 minute drive away. Movies? The newly built Landmark Theater complex is a leisurely 10 minute stroll from your studio. One cinema even features 'lounges' where you can sit in luxurious leather sofas with tables where you can enjoy dinner and wine while you watch your movie!

What makes this studio unique

The studio itself is very modern and luxurious ... there's a lovely fountain right next to the French doors that open out to the beautifully landscaped garden and shared pool. You're in the middle of bustling city loaded with attractions and yet the peaceful setting creates a little oasis of serenity.

Really cute flat with a nice shower, lovely pool and garden, great location, very nice host

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for his birthday weekend and I also had a short professional conference to attend on UCLA campus. It was conveniently located to a lot of things we wanted to do and Sam was a wonderful host, providing everything we could possibly need. The flat was really cute, with plenty of closet space, living room, kitchen, bed, bathroom, and a really nice shower. I cannot emphasize enough how nice the shower was!!! I will definitely be coming back.

Private and Serene

We just returned home from a very peaceful and comfortable stay at this immaculate studio located in a lovely Los Angeles neighborhood. The owners are very accommodating and respectful of our privacy. We will definitely request to stay here again on our return trips to Los Angeles!

Sam and Deb are the perfect hosts... there if you have a question, engaging yet give you privacy. The location is great, feels rural and safe. The apartment has everything one needs, is nicely appointed and the bed sleeps very comfortably. Nice to sit outside by the pool and catch some sun while relaxing. Highly recommend.

Amazing location, perfect host

  • 5 of 5

Sam's studio apartment was just as it was advertised -- modern, clean, convenient, with all of the amenities you need for a vacation or work stay. The location is ideal -- just a 10 minute walk to the new Westwood train, which will have you in Santa Monica in 15 minutes. You can also walk to Westside Pavilion, and to the best breakfast spot in Los Angeles -- John O Groats.
