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 Studio City

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.

A little paradise in Burbank!

  • 5 of 5

My 19 year old son stayed in the remodeled upper guest studio for 10 weeks while working an internship at Warner Brothers. It was very nicely decorated, conveniently located to the studio, clean, quiet and in a safe neighborhood. Scott was very easy to work with before, during and after. We had an exceptional experience from beginning to end!! :)

Warm Welcome Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at one of the properties (first time was the 2 bedroom unit) and we have nothing but good things to say about the neighborhood. In our 2 stays, we have become friends with many of the neighbors and our children often play together. It is wonderful to be able to walk to restaurants, the coffee shop, and Universal Studios. The nearby park has been completely renovated in the last 6 months and is amazing! As for the upper unit, it is a very light and bright, cozy and just like the pictures show. The kitchen is well-equipped with most things you would need for a short or extended stay. We loved being able to spend the evenings on the patio (shared with other units if other units occupied), as it is a nice little oasis. The units come with 1 parking pass, however it has become more difficult with the new restaurant on the corner. The only downfall with this unit (or all units) is the coin operated wash machine, which doesn't seem to clean clothes very well. The wash cycle seems to be too short. Grounds are well maintained, and owners are awesome and easy to work with. These units have become our home away from home. We look forward to our next stay at Aqua Vista! Thank you Scott and Tatiana for your hospitality.

Wonderful, cozy home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The upstairs studio #3 provided a perfect "home away from home" for our daily family excursions in the LA area. It's cozy, with all the amenities needed to be comfortable, including easy street parking and an enclosed patio/courtyard area with outdoor seating. And you can't beat the 10 mins walk to the Universal Studios shuttle that takes you up to the park and the City Walk! Highly recommended!

Perfect location, great place!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us enjoyed our stay . Exactly as pictured. More that enough room. We enjoyed the outside space on a down day from all the amusement parks! Used Lyft to go to Universal . **or so dollars total.. vs Parking $$.. In an out like a breeze and home in less than 10 minutes. Very close to Hollywood Blvd and Melrose.

The queen bed was very comfortable. My 14 year old wasn't as thrilled with the sofa- bed, but she slept ok. Very clean and we cooked spaghetti to save one night but the noodle shop and mexican restaurant were great next door with a dollar store right down the street. Warner Bros tour right around the corner and we also drove to Knotts , although that was about an hour with traffic ...Very Doable.

As other guests have mentioned, the warped blinds on the windows really are a distraction in the morning. We covered them with our extra throws but I would suggest changing them for the comfort of your guests. The little star lights are nice for night light, however. only one string is working now and need dusting as do the beams above. Just an FYI .Thank you for the sodas, water and bathroom amenities..

Highly recommend for a couple and two kids. Not so much 2 couples. We really enjoyed it and it was very quiet. The room cooled down very quickly and I say... Stay here. You won't regret it.

Great Location, Easy Reservation Process and Well Appointed Home

  • 5 of 5

This is my second visit, and I am sure it won't be my last given that my son has moved to LA full-time. On my first visit I stayed in the upstairs unit. This visit my husband and I were in the downstairs unit. Both equally beautiful and well appointed! If you are looking for a place close to Universal, Studio City, North Hollywood and Burbank, look no further. I am a frequent user of online systems such as HomeAway and this is one of the best homes I have chosen based on price, value, location, appointments and check-in/check-out process. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Scott and Tatiana for another enjoyable stay!

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.
