Wonderful stay! Mr. Kurtz's hospitality was second to none. Love my great conversations with him. Cottage was comfortable and great for our trip to Universal Studios which is only 5 minutes away. Close to everything! Will stay again soon!

Fantastic Host and Wonderful Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at the guest house over the New Year's Eve holiday, and a few days thereafter. It was just wonderful! The location was quite convenient for us, and the accommodations were superb! Everything is done very well; obviously a great deal of thought and planning went into the design. So comfortable, and private. We truly enjoyed every minute of it! I hope we are able to stay there again during our next visit to LA.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the guest house with the loft. We enjoyed every minute of our stay here. They bathroom is spacious with a very high ceiling and a walk in tiled shower. The bed up in the loft is very comfortable and the view from the windows of Studio City is great. Overall we will definitely be coming back the next time we stay in the area.

Great Location Close to shopping and dining.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the suite in the main house and found it very comfortable. Lloyd was a great host very friendly. We stayed there because we were going to Universal Studios for a couple of days of fun which it was. Grocery store within a few blocks for water and snacks We ate most meals out only because we were always gone. Great location to drive to Malibu from. Highly recommend In & Out Burger just a few blocks away, make sure you get the French Fries and save some for Lloyd, he can always use more nails. Would recommend this property to any small party of people looking for a great place to stay. Large bathroom and well stocked kitchen, comfortable bed and furniture.

San Francisco, CA


  • 5 of 5

Due to traffic issues on a long drive down from the San Francisco area, we ended up being quite later than expected. The owner was absolutely patient and understanding about the whole thing, and met us at the guest house when we arrived.

The house is just lovely - it is decorated to its fullest potential with just enough furniture, but not too much to overwhelm the space. Our children were even invited to pick oranges off the backyard tree to eat, which they did every morning we stayed at the guest house (the oranges were delicious, by the way).

We were given absolute privacy during our visit, but our son also really enjoyed just sitting in the sun in the yard, which was nicely kept. It was also very quiet.

The house is central to quite a few things - you can walk to the grocery store and Starbucks, as well as quite a few various restaurants in the area. It is less than five minutes to Universal Studios, and just off the highway (although in complete honesty, LA is probably the worst place in the world to use the highway, so maybe that's not really a selling point).

We found the guest house even better than described, and would gladly reserve it again if we are back in the LA area.
