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!

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.

Very nice accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This property was very clean, quiet and well appointed. We stayed here on a family trip to Universal and it worked perfectly for us. We were able to walk an easy six blocks to the Universal shuttle which takes you up the hill to the front of the venue. My son, his wife, and my grandson stayed in the upstairs unit while we had the lower front unit. The patio was nice, not huge and it is shared by the three units and only has one table so there might be an issue if everyone wanted to have meals outside. My husband spent the days at the property and only saw the other renters once. You should be advised that the units are small. The couch makes into the additional beds. The bed in our unit was in an alcove with zero clearance on one side and about a foot on the other so if you were a large person or physically handicapped, getting in bed might be a challenge. Our kitchen was larger than the upstairs unit but their living space was somewhat larger. There is no dishwasher so if you're planning to do a lot of cooking, you'll be hand washing dishes. We just used paper plates for our breakfasts and ate out the rest of the time. Directv is provided with plenty of choices although being from Northern CA and huge Giants fans we were disappointed that we couldn't see the games. We found several sodas, beers, and water in the fridge and coffee provided to use with the Keurig coffee maker. Our favorite evening snack, popcorn, was provided as well. I found everything I needed or might have forgotten in the bathroom. The rental is tucked away on a dead end street so there is virtually no traffic although there is some business next door and the helicopters and small planes bothered us some in the mornings. One thing I really liked was no keys required for the doors or gate into the property. They use a numerical key pad and Scott provides you with a code that can be changed remotely. We didn't receive our code by email until we arrived but Scott took care of that glitch quickly and then called to make sure all was well. All in all we found this to be a very nice alternative to a high rise hotel. My kids had stayed here before so obviously they were well pleased with this rental. I will certainly consider it if we come to Universal again.
