Smoking is permitted in outdoor areas. There is a separate Guesthouse at the back of the property that we occupy when not traveling. It has no windows facing the pool/house and does not intrude on the privacy of Hesby House in any way. The guesthouse has its own entrance and separate gated/fenced garden, its occupants are never visible to the occupants of the House, making the back yard and pool area completely secluded and private.

Great clean home!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house. Very spacious. Backyard was nice. Extremely safe and quiet neighborhood. Convenient location to Universal Studios. About a 10-15 minute drive. The only warning I would have is the living room has a big step down. Might be difficult for an elderly or little kid. We were very pleased and would rent again!!

Our new "go-to" CA vacation place!

  • 5 of 5

OMG...what an amazing home and property this was to stay at. It was comfortable, private, in a safe neighborhood and amazing. I traveled with a baby and a 5 year old, my husband and in-laws and everyone had a wonderful time. The owners are very communicative and even offered up suggestions for local venues, etc. Their home is well stocked and the info book they have for guests was extremely helpful regarding the house, local places to visit, shopping and food. Thank you so much Michael and Daphne! We will be back...

Beautiful, Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two boys (ages 10 & 11) and I visited here for a spring break vacation. The house is beautiful, spacious, and the pool is great. The location is incredibly convenient to attractions like Universal, the La Brea Tar Pits and downtown Los Angeles. The hosts have everything set up for easy use of the house and were very helpful before we arrived. Overall a great experience!

A Gem in Valley Village

  • 5 of 5

The property is a vintage 20s-30s cottage that has been expanded and updated while maintaining period charm. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was only 15-20 minutes through Laurel Canyon to West Hollywood/The Grove where my daughters live. All furnishings were in good condition and the grounds, including a beautiful garden surrounding the pool and spa, were well maintained. Though the photos of this property are attractive, it was even nicer than we expected. Our hosts, Mike and Daphne were very friendly and responsive to our requests. This is now my go-to place in the LA area.

Valley Village is an enclave centered between Studio City, Sherman Oaks and Burbank that is perfectly located for everything Los Angeles has to offer.

Established in 1939, it is now home to musicians, film makers, actors and writers who are drawn to the quiet streets, charming homes, easy access to studios, the shopping and restaurants along Ventura Boulevard and the ability to become lost in nature on the trails in the Santa Monica Mountains that are just minutes to the south.

This is the perfect location for going to different parts of Los Angeles: the freeways to downtown, the beaches and other attractions are close by. And the canyon roads - famed Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Coldwater Canyon - offer a beautiful way of getting to Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.
