Safe and Swanky

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here while she checked out UCLA for grad school. This property suited our needs perfectly. The loft and convertible bed provided ample sleeping space and privacy, and the full kitchen was convenient for breakfast and snacks. Restaurants and a grocery stores are within walking distance. We were very pleased with our choice -- had a great stay!

Comfortable guest house

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Lloyd's guest house was pleasant and comfortable. Though no place is like home when you are on a trip, the guest house was far more comfortable than staying in a hotel. The footprint of the building is fairly small, yet the cathedral-like vaulted ceilings gave a very roomy feel to the house. I have to say that my family loved the custom bathroom/shower. The kitchenette had pretty much everything you would need if you wanted to actually cook, including clean pots, pans, plates, cups, and silverware. An apartment style washer and dryer are in the guest house, perfect for running a small load of laundry if you have an extended stay. The queen size bed in the loft is roomy and adequate, but is somewhat worn and may need replacing. This was not a deal breaker for me though. The couch/sofa bed was comfortable and my kids did not mind sleeping on it at all. The linens, sheets, and towels were hotel quality and spotless. The air conditioner worked well and cooled things off fairly quickly, but running the ceiling fan is a must to circulate the warm air out of the loft (our stay was during the summer).

As for the location, this house is in a mature affluent area of Universal City. It is in a quiet neighborhood away from any main streets. Universal Studios is about a 5 minute drive away. A Ralph's grocery store is nearby. The area feels pretty safe, without the normal graffiti of LA. We did spot some homeless people down Ventura Blvd, which is pretty much unavoidable in LA, but they were not in the neighborhood.

Finally, I wanted to mention Lloyd, the owner. All your dealings are with him and no middle person. When renting online, I am cautious and worry about being scammed. Lloyd was straight forward, accommodating and a nice gentleman. I appreciated that he was available if needed, otherwise gave us the privacy to live in the guest house as if it were our own during the stay. He kindly made accommodations/provisions for my spoiled pug during our stay, which was very important to us.

Thanks Lloyd for sharing your guest house with us!

We have returned to this charming cottage many times over the last ten years, and each time our experiences have been wonderful. We have children and grandchildren who live near by, and it is lovely to visit them and then return to our great getaway for a glass of wine in the evening. The kitchen is well appointed and the bedroom loft is very cozy. It is the perfect getaway for a couple, and Lloyd is a great host. We'll be back!
