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 Los Angeles

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.

Rancho Park Studio

  • 4 of 5

The property was exactly as shown in the photos. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The owner, Sam, could not have been more gracious or helpful. The only suggestion we would make is to have bedside reading lamps in place of the recessed overhead spot lights which would make it more conducive for individuals to read in bed. Otherwise, it was a most pleasant stay.

Comfortable, good location, owners were great.

This is a cute little studio apartment, in back of a home in west Los Angeles near Pico and Overland. It is well located, well accommodated, and the owners were great. Easy to get into, easy to check out of, and I will stay again.

Oasis of serenity

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time staying in this lovely studio. That in itself says it all. It is an oasis of serenity in the big busy city, and yet walking distance to many restaurants, a movie theater, a shopping mall and several bus lines. The studio is well equipped, weekly cleaning is provided and the owners Debbie and Sam are super responsive in the unlikely event of a problem. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed our week at Sam & Deb's modern poolside studio. Very accurately described! The accommodations were very comfortable and clean with everything we needed for our vacation in LA. It was convenient to places we wanted to get to and parking on the street for our car was not a problem which is not often the case in LA area. The neighborhood was very nice too and the poolside studio was secure with the gated/locked entrance. Deb's landscaping with the many flowering trees & plants surrounding the patio, pool area & studio also added to the feel of a "tropical" getaway! We would definitely consider staying there again & will recommend it to anyone we know who might be making a trip to the LA area. Sam & Deb were very helpful-great to deal with!

Owner's Response: Thanks you so much for your kind comments. Deb is a wonderful landscaper and we finally had a chance to re-design the entire rear yard a couple of years ago. She surrounded the pool with fragrant and colorful gardens, and highlighted them with fountains and benches around a fire-pit. It's also beautifully lit so that you can sit outdoors on warm LA nights. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed it as much as we do.
