Guestbook comments from the owner

July 18, 2011



Thanks Debbie for a wonderful stay at Casa Colinas. The house was perfect for our family of five, including three teens who enjoyed the view as much as we did. We found everything we needed and the privacy was a treat after long days in town. We hope to visit LA again and will certainly make Casa Colinas our first priority for hospitality! Thanks for everything.

Our sixth summer ! We love Casa Colinas !!

  • 5 of 5

This is our sixth summer staying in Casa Colinas and we continue to love our hills getaway!! Debbie is a super host and very efficient and accommodating. The house has fantastic views of the LA skyline and the vibe and feel of the home is classic Hollywood Hills bungalow. This house has history and charm and will provide you with the warmth and welcome to LA as it serves for relaxation and great location to all of LA’s playgrounds and sites.

Enjoy your stay as much as we have !!

Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Debbie's home. The view is unbelievable! It was so nice to come home at the end of a long day and enjoy a glass of wine while gazing down on the twinkling lights. The home has a lot of charm and Debbie was very easy to work with. Wish we had an extra day to just hang out at the house and chill. :)

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have made a better choice for accommodations. Property was charming and clean. Plenty of linens and kitchen was fully stocked. We enjoyed our meals on the terrace overlooking the Hollywood sign and Universal Studios. Only minutes drive from Hollywood Blvd, Warner Brothers Studio tour and Universal. Ralph's market was only a few miles away for organic groceries. If we return to the Los Angeles area we most certainly would love to stay here again.

An oasis

  • 5 of 5

So researching for somewhere to stay I kept coming back to this stunning view from the patio area - and yes it delivered. I was travelling with my two daughters and this created a wow moment when they first walked down the steps. Beautiful property and really unique, original features. Stayed for 3 nights in July and my only wish was that we were staying for longer. A lovely base to visit LA and somewhere very special to recover after a day's activity.

Even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We treated my son to a California vacation as a high school graduation present. We had a few stops in a few different cities, and this property by far was our favorite. The pictures don't do it justice. The view from the patio is spectacular. Debbie is great to work with and addressed all of our needs promptly. I would have been happy spending most of my time on the patio, but teenage kids always want to be on the go. I couldn't wait to get back and sit on the patio after a long day of activities. If I ever make it back to LA, this is where I'm staying.
