My daughter and I stayed at this house in Feb. of 2015 and it was a wonderful experience. Carol and John were great and take care of any issues you might have. The kitchen had a beautiful antique stove that I had a hard time turning on so after our first week there, they bought a new stove for the house. The house is quite spacious. It has a charming backyard that we didn't enjoy as much as I wish we would have. It is quiet street and we felt safe! We would stay again in a heartbeat!

Cozy & Convenient

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for convenience, this place is minutes from the studios and freeways. The hosts were extremely gracious and readily available for any questions. It is a very old house with very few updates. This wasn't a negative for us, but one should be aware if you plan on staying in a lot. We had a small dog and child with us and the neighborhood was lovely, quiet and safe to walk. We would often walk to the coffee shop and the beautiful church up the road. It was just what we needed for our 2 week stay!

Thx to Carol & John for an Amazing HOMEAWAY rental

  • 5 of 5

I am getting ready to book another stay at Carol & John's for this January. I can't express in words what an amazing couple these two Homeaway owners are. What you won't read in the reviews are the kind of generosity and compassion they have and why customers like me keep coming back.

Back in October 2012, my family and I returned for a 7 day stay. Some family flew home to Boston, while my husband and myself worked with the airlines to get a flight home to New York City. This was the weekend that Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast. None of knew that this Superstorm was coming or the kind of disaster it would bring. We kept in touch with family and friends and were very eager to get home so we could help those who were in need, those who were still lost.

Carol and John kept us as long as they could which we couldn't have been more grateful for. We consider them family now. And I would be happy to discuss the home and the experience with anyone. Thank you Carol and John.

A lovely home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Our family needed a short term rental while relocating to California. Carol and John's rental was truly a home away from home for us. We stayed 2 months and enjoyed every moment. The pictures do a great job showing its charm. Would like to add that the parking/driveway can fit 3 cars. It was so nice not having to scramble to find parking on the streets, like with most rentals in the area. The home is an older home but very well maintained. Carol and John were always available to us if we needed anything. During the Christmas holiday, our children visited from out of town, and Carol provided us with comfortable air mattress and linens to help accommodate their stay. These people are extremely gracious hosts. We consider ourselves fortunate to have come across this charming house and would happily recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the LA area.

A Wonderful Place for a Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary this week and staying in this neat and well kept home was a perfect gathering place for our family. We enjoyed our visit and the comfort of this home very much.

Carol and John were gracious hosts and we appreciated their immediate attention to any questions we had.

This place was perfect for us and we would highly recommend it to others wanting a comfortable place to stay.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed this property. It was in a great location for our needs (close to the metro station, in a wonderful neighborhood, close to shopping and entertainment). The property is very well maintained and the listing description is "spot on". Carol is a very special lady! She made us feel at home the minute we met her. She was available to answer any questions and make area recommendations. She even delivered fresh flowers for each room of the house., HOW NICE! We recommend this property without any reservation!!! We plan to stay at this "cute" house again next year on our annual visit to LA.
