Art P. purchased this villa in 1996
This house was built by a very famous Hollywood movie star, has an incredible beauty, quiet, very private, view from the swimming pool and the Jacuzzi. Perfect for a family, that wants privacy.
You'll be amazed of the tranquility, the resort style, never anyone complained about this house.
Our stay was marred by some very unusual weather. That said my wife and I have a very nice stay. The location is such that a car is essential but we knew this before travelling so no problem. The beds were very comfortable and the accommodation spacious, well equipped and private.
We stayed at the property for a week before heading to Vegas for our 10th wedding anniversary. We all wished we'd booked this the other way round because Art's house is an oasis of calm and tranquility. The garden and pool are wonderful with a view to die for and due to jet lag we watched the sunrise from the jacuzzi our first morning. The house feels like home as soon as you walk in and is fully equipped. As Brits, we were delighted to find a kettle in the kitchen. It's little touches like this that made our holiday special and the enormous fridge/freezer, just like you see in American film and Tv. Speaking of films, staying at the house makes you feel like a celebrity for a week. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and peaceful and waking up to birdsong outside our bedroom was heaven. I could go on and about how wonderful our stay was but the last thing I will say is that Art is a fabulous host and made us feel very welcome. On behalf of myself, Andy R, Andy Y, Joey, Ben R and Ben D, thank you Art for allowing us to have your beautiful home for a week. We hope to return one day. Nina Revell
For anyone who wants to absorb all that the LA area has to offer, this Encino home is the perfect hub. It was central to everything and there is so much to do -- hiking, theme parks, diverse beaches for every taste, studio tours, culture and plenty of food and shopping! We also spent a day at Channel Islands National Park, which is supposedly the least visited National Park in the country...too bad for everyone who passed it up...it's like setting foot in a completely different civilization!
Now...about the house...it is perfect! We are a family of four and found everything we could possibly need and want here. Imagine spending a day out in the city and coming home tired and hungry, throwing some steaks on the grille, lounging by the pool or relaxing in the hot tub and looking out over the valley. OR...go inside to a super equipped kitchen, or comfy living room and get out of the sun. The neighborhood itself is lovely. We spent our nights sitting outside playing UNO and couldn't hear one neighbor. The property and house are immaculate, but not so much that you're afraid to move.
Art, the owner, is great! He met us at the house on our arrival and went over every detail. He gave us some great ideas for restaurants, hiking and other things to do. It's not just a rental to him...as soon as you sit down and start talking, you immediately know he wants you to have the best vacation ever!
I totally recommend this vacation paradise...the perfect retreat from everything stressful in life!
The house was perfect and the view was amazing. . Art was a really nice guy and made sure to go through everything in the house with us to show us how everything worked. We would recommend staying here to anyone and hope to have the chance to stay here again in the Future! Thanks again Art!
We had a wonderful stay, with a very help full owner in a very nice house in a great are with nice pool a great view .
House could do with some more maintenance going forward
We can truly recommend this to others .
