2 br, 2 ba with private fence and yard near Universal and NoHo Arts
Relax and enjoy the large front yard and mature citrus trees from behind the privacy of a fence with remote controlled gated entry. Open the french doors off the living room and sip your morning coffee on the patio amidst the vibrant purple bougainvillea. The grapefruits are easily the most fragrant and juicy I've ever had. If oranges are in season, pick some right off the tree and make some fresh squeezed juice
LA always has great weather but tends to cool down at nights in the 60s so enjoy that outdoor Cali lifestyle! Grab some logs from the woodpile and enjoy a nice fire in the chiminea while having a glass of wine or whiskey
The living room features a large sectional couch that easily seats 5 and there's a super comfy chaise lounge big enough for two. There is currently a 75" Sony HD SmartTV! Cable is through the Sling app along with Roku, Netflix and AppleTV hooked up- just link/sign in to your accounts to stream. There is also a Sony DVD/BluRay player and surround sound system for recreating that theatre-like experience. Many DVDs to choose from. A stylish radio on the bookcase streams Chromecast audio for any music platform you prefer (Spotify, Pandora, etc) directly from your smartphone or tablet. High speed wifi and a wireless printer available for you to print out boarding passes or amusement park tickets.
There is a gas bbq directly off the kitchen for grilling out and enjoying meals on the patio. Patio table comfortably seats 6
Long secured driveway can park up to 5 cars. Free SAFE parking steps from the door means no parking tickets that can put a damper on a vacation :)
Master bedroom is very spacious and over 16 feet wide. Stretch out and enjoy. Queen bed, nightstand, dresser and full closet system with places for shoes, valuables, etc. Plenty of room for your stuff for an extended stay

Entire house is yours except for a side (3rd) room I have locked with my personal belongings and behind the blue curtain off the laundry room. I've just stashed some household items here and do not interfere at all with laundry use.
Interaction with guests
I will be staying in a detached guest house in the rear of the property. The house and guest house are completely separate structures so I can be as far or as close as you prefer.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make your stay more enjoyable. Happy to answer questions about navigating LA or activities during your stay
NoHo is an up and coming neighborhood that is just minutes from Universal Theme Park, Burbank Airport and Burbank's studios (Disney, Warner Brothers and Nickelodean) and its Arts District features many dance studios (such as the world famous Millennium), the Art Institute, the Motion Picture Academy, restaurants with different cuisines, theatres, cafes, juice bars, coffeeshops and bars.
I am 5 minutes from Burbank Airport ($7 Uber ride); 2 blocks from National Rental Car; freeway access to the (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and 405 are all no problem.

Other things to note

Lovely home and host!!
You do not want to miss out on this wonderful home! Conveniently located, you're just a stone's throw away from Universal and Burbank and <30 mins out from DTLA.
Rich was an amazing host, like everyone mentions in their review. The house is well stocked, very clean, and he communicates and responds quickly. We were travelling with a 18 mo baby and we loved the fact that the property was private, gated, and the neighborhood was quiet.
We will definitely stay again when we are visiting California!
Absolutely beautiful home!
I cannot thank Rich enough for allowing us to stay in his beautiful home! Everything you could need is in the house from kitchen supplies to toiletries, linens, and an amazing tv with all the apps. Also, the decor is beautiful. The house is immaculate and the outdoor space was perfect for our small family gathering, we were very pleased! The private gate and pad lock made us feel safe as well. Rich is very prompt with communication and easy to speak with, I would highly recommend this house! The location was just perfect for our visit. There are tons of great restaurants, sites and grocery stores right there. We hope to stay again when visiting my brother! Thank you so much, Rich!
This is a lovely home! Rich, the owner, was a wonderful host, making sure everything was ready for us. Our flight arrived very late and he made sure we had coffee and rolls so we could have breakfast. He made us feel like we were family. We loved having the gated yard, made it feel very private. Booked the house for a family visit and to see our first grandchild. Had the in-laws over for a barbecue - the grill works great - and had plenty of room to visit. Breakfast every morning on the patio. Rich has put very nice touches in the home, great collection of books, and the 75 in. screen TV was like being in the movie theatre. Location is great - close to all major attractions, and the Burbank airport. Bedrooms spacious and beds very comfortable. Plenty of room to park so you don't have to park on the street. We would definitely stay here again - Rich feels like he is part of our family already! Thanks for everything, Rich!
Loved having you guys! Welcome back anytime :)
Very private and very quiet centralized location.
For quick access to LA in general, this seemed to be an ideal location. The house was very well stocked with just about anything you might need. We did not utilize the outdoor BBQ or the Chiminea but very nice to have those kinds of features available.
Great location. Very Cute.
Great front yard and beds were comfy!! Communication was great and everyone was easy to work with!
Very Nice Place To Stay
Rich was very cool and easy to work with. It was a very relaxing place, quiet and felt secluded although it was in a neighborhood. Also a 75" big screen!
Having an automatic gate made it feel safe and secure. It was close to Universal Studios, which is why we stayed there. I'd definitely recommend it.
