Perfect for our family of nine.

  • 5 of 5

The townhome had plenty of room and seating. There were nine of us so three bathrooms were great. The house was clean and we had everything we needed for our stay. If we had stayed longer we might have needed additional towels but as it was there were plenty for all. The drive to Universal Studios was an easy 13 minutes and never had to get on the freeway. We walked over to Crust one night and had really good pizza. The owners were easy to work with and made us feel welcome. I would definitely recommend this place to rent. Thank you for making our time with our grandchildren memorable.

It was great.

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious, plenty of room for all 7 of us. It had so many things we didn't bring that they supplied, which was awesome. Its in a great location, especially for things we wanted to do. The owners were great, I was able to call anytime I had a question and they were so helpful and nice. I would totally use this house again if I was able to go on vacation again. Overall fantastic!

This property was perfect! I was impressed as soon as I opened the door. The pictures do not do the beauty of the house justice! All of the ammenities perfectly suited our needs and there was plenty of room for everyone in my group.

Decent Stay in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Great location! Walking distance to shopping and minutes to Universal Studios and Hollywood. Nice updated kitchen. There is a nice patio off the dining room as well as a rooftop deck. It would have been nice if there was a BBQ grill. The only thing stopping the property from getting 5 stars is the need for updated/clean living room furniture, and the condo has a moldy smell... possibly from noticeable water spots on the ceilings and walls. There is some mold in the master shower, so I would suggest bringing shower shoes. Very spacious unit to accommodate a large family/group. The owners are super nice and made it a smooth process. Overall, good stay.

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Everything went great! Just the process of checkin a bit confusing (get the keys, etc). There was a problem with washing machine, but the owner did everything she could to solve it. And she really solve it, with a brand new one. Another annoying thing was the knives, didnt cut even butter....

The house was very comfortable, excellent located, very close to the I-5, and Studio City offered everything we needed in walking distance. The kitchen has everything, except for the knives, the rooms are very spacious, beds are good, I have no complaints in the matter of sleeping and resting. The TV we barely used, we always spent the days out. About Internet, as the house is so big, theres some spots the wifi didnt reach.
