About Scott Nell

This was the first home my wife and I (Tatiana & Scott) bought soon after we were married - we love this property, and are excited to share it with visitors from abroad - we both have an entertainment background, and Tatiana now has the honor of being a Stay at Home Mom to our 3 wonderful children (another is already out of the house), while Scott brings home the bacon as a Luxury Estates Residential Realtor, working hard each day so he can get home to spend time with the family.

Why Scott Nell chose San Fernando Valley

So close to Universal Studios! Perfect for entertainment industry folks as it is close to the major studios like Disney, Warner Brothers, Universal, etc.. If you are visiting family, we are in Toluca Lake, and border Studio City, Burbank, Universal City, Hollywood! The Aqua Vista is as cute as can be, cozy, fully furnished, tons of Spanish character, and was put together with loving care by my wife (Tatiana). Also close to the best theme parks, transportation, all Hollywood has to offer, restaurants, and so much more.

What makes this studio unique

Probably the most charming place you will ever see!

Nice small studio

  • 4 of 5

Nice studio, great location, close to universal and hollywood blvd. For a family of four the studio felt a little bit small. Maybe we missed something but we didn't find any dressers to put our clothes so had to leave them in the luggage. The laundry is in the room behind the bed, you will feel the noise of other tenants washing clothes. Prepare a lot of coins for using the laundry. Unfortunately the dryer did not work well, so our neighbour tenant called to have it fixed. There's a lemon tree in the backyard my kids enjoyed and there's a nice park about 3 blocks from the house if you have small kids.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Scott's place, very clean and cozy and close to everything. Scott was easy to reach when we had questions and very helpful and hospitable. The apartment is a great landing pad for those who want to get out and about and explore, and come home to a relaxing and private place to chill out. Recommend!

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO and the experience was great. Scott was very accommodating and informative. This house is in a great location! Many things to do and we didnt have to drive far. Property was clean, well stocked and we had everything we needed to make our meals. I'd recommend this property!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were planning to be in the Studio City area for about a week and this was the perfect place to spend it. The neighborhood is very convenient to everywhere we wanted or needed to go. Everything was thought of, from toiletries in the bathroom to beverages in the refrigerator. It was a very welcoming atmosphere and very much appreciated. The place is small, but it has all the amenities that you might need. The bed is located in an alcove and might be a little difficult to get in and out of, but we had a good night's sleep regardless. We would definitely stay again.

Cute, Cozy and Close!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved staying at this little guest house. I came with my sister to go to Harry Potter World and Universal Studios. We stayed in the upstairs unit (you could comfortably fit 3-4 people with the sofa pull-out). It was decorated so fun, with a Spanish sun theme, with funky lights, cozy blankets and a nice shower. Very clean, quiet, and close to everything! There are so many good places to eat, within walking distance or a short drive. It was also close to Universal Studios, making it only a 5 minute uber. And I haven't mentioned the best part- Scott. He was very hospitable and easy to contact. I will be booking here again when we come back for Universal Studios.
