Owners live on the premises in the main house, which is next to yet separate from Guesthoue. We will not bother you unless anything is needed or requested from our guests.
We're minutes away from Le Chene, an excellent renowned French restaurant, Maria Bonita, a delicious Mexican restaurant; the Agua Dulce Winery up the road; and plenty of other dining options in area and the Santa Clarita Valley. You can walk off the property to nearby hiking trails, drive to the famous Vasquez Rocks Park, or retreat and rest on the property.
We're a little over an hour from LAX and about 40 minutes from Burbank Airport. Due to the off beaten path location, public transportation isn't available, but taxis are an option if called in advance.
Our family of 3 enjoyed staying at the pink cottage and look forward to the next opportunity we can stay there again. Jolli was friendly, welcoming and available if we needed but did not bother us. The location was convenient for our plans. The home was clean and well stocked with essentials and comfortable beds.
The Pink House is a beautifully furnished & decorated, 2 story guest house situated on a hilltop. The guest house is quite large enough to house 4-6 people but it is designed and furnished to best accommodate a couple.
The downstairs is a spacious living, dining, bathroom and kitchen area with several lovely sitting areas, large-screen TV and ceiling fans. The kitchen and bathroom are well supplied with everything you could need. Upstairs is an A-framed roofed, one bedroom suite with a queen bed, 2 sitting areas, ceiling fan and a thermostat that controls the central HVAC for the entire guest house. The bedroom also leads out to a private deck with six chairs, which looks out south past the owners' main house, west up into the local mountains and north/east towards the desert and Angeles Forrest.
Outside there are two BBQ areas plus comfortable seating under a large tree which looks out east over the valley and Sierra Hwy (1 mi away) including a vineyard and cotton-wood & oak tree forest, and a view of the mountains. There are not a lot of places to walk to from the house but you are central to drive in any direction to site-see to your heart's content.
A special treat for us city-dwellers is the fantastic star-field at night. The upstairs deck is a great place to watch the sunset and count the stars as they emerge. The Big Dipper was hanging low in the sky like you could drink from it.
Except for the sounds of the Sierra Hwy or the air conditioning, the house and surrounding area was quiet and peaceful. You can sometimes hear the coyote packs in the middle of the night. Finally, the owners were very gracious and gave us helpful suggestions to the local area and the privacy that we sought.
Thank you Mike and Jolli.
If you're looking for a quiet place to stretch your legs, this is it! The owners go out of their way to make sure your stay is peaceful and that you're happy in their guest house.
With a lot of room to yourself, this is a relaxing retreat. Enjoyed it very much!
This was a repeat stay for us and we enjoyed it as much as our first stay! Great spot to relax and enjoy the CA lifestyle!! Thanks again Jolli!!

Jolli and Mike were very friendly, helpful hosts. We had some problem with internet access at first, and they went out of there way to get it fixed quickly. The cottage itself was nicely decorated and very comfortable, and the surroundings were beautiful. I would definitely recommend a stay at the big pink cottage.
The place is great with plenty of room. It was great to not feel cramped like in a hotel room. It was clean and comfortable. The owners, Mike and Jolli are very nice and enjoyable to talk to. We spent 7 nights here and really enjoyed every minute. We liked not having to get dressed and go out for breakfast every morning. Everything you need to cook full meals is available. We used the BBQ pit one day and it works well. While we spent most of our days away from the property exploring LA and the surrounding areas (Hollywood, Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice, Magic Mountain, Vasquez Rocks), we did spend one full day at the pool and just lounging around. It was very nice and relaxing with the mountain views all around. Lounging on the deck at night and looking at the stars was enjoyable. We had access to a washer and dryer, which we used halfway through our stay. The drive to Six Flags Magic Mountain is about 20 minutes. The drive to Hollywood was about 45 minutes, and the drive to LAX is about an hour. The drive to and from Hollywood/LA is pleasant and did not seem that long with the nice views all around. We did make sure to travel after the morning and evening rush hours. I would stay here any day and make the drive in and out of the LA area before I would stay in LA. If we ever find ourselves visiting the area again, we will definitely be booking this place again. I would highly recommend it. Great place, great stay, great vacation!!! Thanks Mike and Jolli for sharing your wonderful retreat!
