About Lloyd Kurtz

Lloyd Kurtz has lived in this house since 1998. He is a licensed contractor and enjoys gardening, traveling, photography and telling jokes (sometimes some really good ones!).

Lloyd Kurtz purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Lloyd Kurtz chose Studio City

This property is a 1920's Tudor style home. Legend has it that the house was built by Mr. Lankershim himself, of whom Lankershim Blvd was named after. Lankershim helped to develop the San Fernando Valley in the 1920's and 30's. The movie Chinatown with Jack Nicholsen basically portrays Lankershim's story,

What makes this apartment unique

What make this such a great neighborhood is the proximity to all of the fabulous shopping and dining that Ventura Blvd is famous for. It is quiet and safe as well as being a fabulous walking area with panoramic views; there is a reason the stars live around here.

Perfect location and beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I recently stayed for 5 nights and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Lloyd was extremely helpful, and was accessible if we needed him for anything. The apartment was IMPECCABLY clean! I was very impressed with both this property and the experience with VRBO. We will absolutely be staying in this property again in the future.

Best idea EVER! Better experience than any hotel.

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, clean, quiet and private. Centrally located, perfect for day trips and especially if you are visiting Universal studios. Lloyd met us on check in, gave us some great advice on where to go and how to get there. Reserved parking spot on the street. Beautiful grounds. There are lots of steps, being on a hillside, if you can't climb steps this isn't the place for you. The best advice Lloyd gave us, take an Uber! We had never done this, he explained how, we downloaded the Uber app, and for $6 (each way, $12 total) we had a ride to Universal studios! It cost more than that to park your car at Universal, and we didn't have to worry about parking or traffic, we were dropped off and picked up right at the gate! It was awesome. Next time I come to SoCal, this is the place, no question. Thanks Lloyd and thanks HomeAway!

Great Apartment with Magical Details!

  • 5 of 5

A cute apartment in a very safe neighborhood. Lovely decor, and some magical details perfect for our trip to Harry Potter at Universal Studios! Hanging lanterns, a small porch swing, a winding stairwell approach complete with statues framing the entry really completed our experience. Lloyd was charming and personable, and gave us some great advice on local restaurants within walking distance. Used Lyft to easily ride to and from Universal. I would definitely stay here again!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Amazing, comfortable & very clean property. Lloyd was a very friendly & supportive host. Felt completely comfortable in the area & this property. The oranges Lloyd left at our doorstep was the perfect touch & I made fresh orange juice which was delicious. When we return to LA we wont look anywhere else. Thanks so much Lloyd & see you again soon. Vicki, Tony & Ceara
