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.

Wonderful safe place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We needed this for two weeks while we waited for our apartment to open up from a big move across state. There is laundry, left over containers, and everything you need to get you through a work week. My 12 month old needed a place to stay in the day with my mother, and this was baby safe. Too bad we couldn't do anything touristy with Universal Studios so close. That's a great opportunity for anyone who wants to book this for a vacation. It's about a 30 min walk, but worth not paying for parking. They only provide one parking pass at this residence, and when you're a family, that's really hard to do. Two would have been better, but not everyone staying is a family with more than one vehicle.

The place was very nice and it was easy to contact the owner when needed.

Great Location - Nice Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights as a base in LA as we were planning to visit Universal and Warner Bros, along with Hollywood Boulevard etc.

Location could not have been better, whilst we drove to the property, we actually found we could walk to Universal in under 20 minutes which saved us on parking costs! We also used Uber to get to/from Warner Bros Studios as again this was quicker and better value than parking.

The property itself is a beautiful little studio which is very well thought out, wonderfully decorated with a sun and moon theme. The owners left the fridge stocked with beers/soft drinks, and snacks such as microwave popcorn which was a nice little touch. There was also a useful amenity kit in the bathroom. We had no problem parking outside the property (but remember to return the parking permit to the apartment before you check out!).

The courtyard area, whilst shared with two other apartments, felt private and we did not see anyone else the whole time we were there. We used the washer/dryer facilities as we were on a road trip going to numerous other places so found this very useful.

All in all a lovely place to stay, and a great base if you are visiting attractions in the Hollywood area.

Welcoming studio in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The studio is in a nice quiet neighborhood with easy access to the highway. The owners have thought of everything. There were snacks, drinks and toiletries provided. The only problem we had was with the WiFi being finicky. Other than that it was the perfect place for us for a great price!

A Sweet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, this is a wonderful place to "come home to". The 2nd floor studio apartment is charming, comfortable and very sunny. Upon arrival you will find beverages and treats to welcome you. Also on site is a washer and dryer just in case you want o do a little washing of clothes!

I look forward to returning to The Aqua Vista.

We loved Scotts studio! It was perfect for my husband, myself and my 2 boys. The studio was beautifully decorated and they even left a welcome beverage for us. You could not ask for a better location in Los Angelas close to everything and in a great family friendly neighborhood. We will be staying at this property again for our future vacations to LA. Scott was so nice and so easy to deal with. Can't wait to book our next trip.
