Wonderful! 4.9/5 -
(46 traveler reviews)

Incredible view, location, with your own swimming pool/jacuzzi, exclusive..
average rating of 4.869565 based on 46 reviews

It really worked out great and the owner was very helpful and easy to work with.

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described. Three nice sized bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen was great. The location is about a mile from a grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants, etc. which was a big plus for us. The pool and whirlpool were really nice. Art the owner was very helpful. The location is more or less between downtown attractions and Papanga and the Santa Monica mountains, so you can get to both pretty easily. Of course this is LA, so traffic no matter what you do.

Extremely disappointing!

  • 2 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in 8 similar homes through HomeAway or VRBO in several states over the last few years. This was by far the most disappointing experience. So many little things added up: had to ask for washing machine soap since there was none with the machine; no extra napkins, toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, etc. other than what was there when we arrived; Art wasn't sure if there was gas in the grill but told us where to go (and pay for it) to get more if necessary; additional charge for a pet upon arrival despite the fact we had paid what the site requested in advance for a pet; told we couldn't heat & use the pool (never mentioned on the site); the spa didn't heat so we had to call for a repair; billed significant additional utilities after our return home but had to request documentation of charges (pictures of meters but no documentation verifying the dollar rates he's charging); couldn't use the garage; the bottom of the refrigerator was so filthy we didn't use the bottom shelf; one measuring cup in the kitchen and not one measuring spoon; basics in the kitchen were negligible (no flour, one salt and pepper shaker but nothing to refill with); gutters overflowing in the rain; paint peeling all over the back of the house; light bulbs burned out in several rooms; torn sliding screens; virtually no written instructions for the pool and spa (we used to own one so my husband knew what to do); no working light in the master shower and a very slow drain; no DVD player; no stereo system with which to play music (there was Bluetooth); electric cords all over the place. We knew we would be there in February so we didn't expect the yard to look like the pictures, but the grass and beds were full of weeds. Art indicated that we would see a gardener and a pool guy during our 10 day stay. He wanted us to ask the gardener to prune some shrubs for him and then "give him a tip." The master bed was comfortable, there was lots of outdoor seating, plenty of towels for the spa, more than adequate dishes, glasses & silverware. The general feeling you got was that Art was not invested in the property. It felt very neglected which was disappointing for the daily rental rate you are paying. He obviously had not checked out whether there were supplies or that things even worked despite the fact that he meets you there upon your arrival. The privacy was fabulous, the view lovely and it was very quiet, all of which were important to us.

Owner's Response: I am renting my house out for almost 7 years, usually fully booked, without any complaints ever, only very positive reviews. I have many returning quests, who come to spend their vacations here every year. I made many friends too, because of Home Away. I think it speaks for itself. This is the first negative review, nothing is true, or simply a ridiculous, vicious nonsense.. I don't want to go into these things much further, I think people understand everything, and can read between the lines, I don't need to defend, or explain myself, I'm proud of my perfect record in the past 7 years. I understand people are different, many good, and some not, and some are evil.. I will always do my best to satisfy my guests 100%.. Difficult to understand why people do this. In that case, I think they are just some very miserable people. At reservation they never mentioned a 75 lbs dog, because they knew, that I don't allow that. I only learned 4 days before their arrival. So, I charged them at arrival for that fee. They just tried to get away to pay the pet fee..That made them angry..I think this is why all these negative review is happening. But many guests are allergic to dog's hair, and it takes a special cleaning to sterilize the house, and the yard. The barbecue..I have no idea how much propane is inside the tank, but they had another full one ready. They wanted to heat the pool, but don't pay for the gas. It is very expensive here to heat the pool, about $25.00/day. Los Angelenos don't heat their pools, because of the cost. The website clearly states it. They complained to me about the spa, (I was out of the country on vacation too) I called the my pool service people, they didn't find anything wrong, other than they didn't wait long enough to heat up to 102, instead it was only 96.. Refrigerator dirty?? The house professionally cleaned, before guests arrive..They are with me ever since I rent out the house, they are the best.. And no flour? Lol..Although I don't buy groceries to the guests, still I found about 2 lbs. of flours. Gutters overflowing? Well, Los Angeles had the biggest storms, and floods in it's history, while they were here. Excuse me!! Finally the grass..Because of the drought in the past 10 years we can't water the lawn, only 2 times a week for 5 minutes in Los Angeles. Still my gardeners do a very good job, I don't see any weeds..Because of all the rain, it's possible that we had some weeds now, I don't know, but it will be gone soon.

The very clean property was perfect for Christmas

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fabulous property in the Hollywood Hills

  • 5 of 5

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

A Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

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's like setting foot in a completely different civilization!

Now...about the 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 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!
