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.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this adorable unit for my parents who were visiting from Iowa and they could not have been happier with the rental. They were so pleased and charmed by the decor and the thoughtful welcoming toiletries and refreshments. Scott was available by phone with a couple quick questions we had, and we felt taken care of right away. I feel so fortunate to have this lovely rental so close to where I live, because it is a perfect stay for any guest I may be entertaining in Los Angeles. Wonderful location, wonderful hosts, wonderful place! Thank you Scott and Tatiana!!

Clean, as described.

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice stay. The studio was clean, bed comfortable, and they left some nice things as a welcome (popcorn to pop and k-cups for a keurig). You can walk to Universal, it is super close, which is nice. Also, just a few FYI things...the WiFi is spotty at best. Scott did give me a credit because of this, but if you rely on WiFi, it struggles and constantly drops off (and it’s not easy to get back) upstairs for some reason. The house backs to an alley, also just FYI. It is not a busy alley or anything and we never had issues with road or car noise, that is just something I like to know ahead of time and usually find out after the fact. Also, parking is very difficult because of the restaurants next door, so if you have a long term stay, it is a bit difficult getting all of your stuff inside from down the street. Also, laundry is downstairs/outside and coin operated only, which was really a bummer, but my fault because I didn’t read clearly. Overall we had a nice time.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback! For future Guests, please know that we only recently had challenges with our wireless, and are in the process of putting in a new system. There is permit (we provide) parking, so parking is rarely an issue, if anything, most guests compliment us in how easy it is. Regarding the alley, that has never been an issue either. We are in a lovely residential neighborhood, on a tree-lined cuk de sac, with the benefit of great nearby restaurants and shops, and all walking distance to Universal, and great transportation, so you can’t beat the location. All the best!!

Terrific Location and Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that I have stayed at this quaint property and I absolutely love it! It has a wonderful courtyard, it's in a very safe neighborhood, there is a nice park nearby, and it's close to the freeways. There is also shopping available, conveniently nearby. This is a great opportunity!
