|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Our home has 3 bedrooms: a master with a king bed overlooking the pool out back; a second bedroom with a full-sized bunk-bed, and a third bedroom with a twin/trundle bed. The bathrooms are modern and recently renovated: the master with a oversized jacuzzi tub and a step-in shower large enough for two.
A 50 inch flat screen is in the living room and there is also a 32 inch flat screen in the master. A surround sound stereo system plays in every room of the house (if you set it that way) and in the back yard.
The kitchen is equipped with everything for someone who loves to cook; in addition to a beautiful gas grill in the built-in bar (complete with mini-fridge) in the back yard. There is a lovely salt water, solar-heated pool which will keep you perfectly cool on warm days (with a fence to protect any accidents). A covered patio with a view of the pool is a heavenly place to sit and sip a drink while you read a novel. Built in swings with a padded ground are great for young kids. And they will also love the S'mores you can make in the fire-pit in the back yard.
The front yard is also spacious: big enough for a game of croquet or catch.
ADDITIONALLY, PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS HOUSE ALSO COMES WITH A $110 WEEKLY CLEANING (WITH WASHED LINENS) THAT IS PAID FOR BY OWNER
Lastly, there is an on-premise caretaker who lives in a rear guest unit who can help you with any questions you may have.
You'll never want to leave!
Lastly, we had one person who rented for the entire summer last year. If you are interested in this, please contact us EARLY for a special rate before it fills in (minimum 8 weeks).
We are a family of four with two young girls (4 and 6). We are originally from the east (Boston), but love living in Southern California. We work in the movie industry.
pete purchased this house in 2008
This property has something for everyone: hikes, theme parks, beaches nearby, a pool, BBQ, gourmet restaurants, shopping at every level, entertainment (movie theaters and live theater), 5-star hotels, and a beautiful house to spend a lazy summer day.
My husband decided he wanted to buy this house when he spotted the high-end built-in Dynasty Grill in the back-yard off the covered patio; but for me it was the built in swings with the padded ground for the kids. It seemed no detail had gone unlooked. There are so many little pockets around our home for each person living here to enjoy (a serene swing hanging from a tree, a hammock on the patio, the pool with a shallow end for kids to play or for adults to lounge). The inside is spacious and comfortable and when you do venture out into the world, there are countless things to do and explore.
My family traveled here in L.A. and found this is a very convenient place to get to hollywood universal studio. Market, gas...everything is within 10-15 min drive. The house itself is comfortable, it took a bit of time for the pool-warmer to work, but we had fun. The owner is very helpful and willing to let us rent their car for a very good deal (we needed a 8-seat SUV cuz we had a 6-people group check-in). The kids also love the entertainment utility in the backyard. The overall experience is good.
Wow. What a great place to spend some time in LA with your family. Quiet neighbourhood, clean house, great amenities within and a central location to many local attractions.
The home was clean, modern and very spacious.
Pete (the owner) and Kelly (the caretaker) were fantastic making sure that everything was to our liking.
Our family went to Universal Studio's, Malibu, Hollywood, Dodger Stadium and the LA zoo. All of these attractions were within a reasonable car ride in the courtesy car that Pete provided at a very generous rate per day.
I plan on going back in the future and would highly recommend this property to all families looking for a fun place to stay in a great area of LA.
I can't say enough about this amazing home! My family stayed for about 2 months the summer and it was an amazing experience. The house is spacious, comfortable, and well cared for. My kids had a blast in the backyard with the (heated) pool, the swings, and the many outside toys! We roasted marshmallows in the fire pit at least twice per week!! This home is great for families. The neighborhood is quiet and quaint, and the neighbors are very friendly and welcoming. We truly felt "at home" in this house. The location is perfect - easy access to most everything you would want to do in LA. Pete was extremely accommodating and was delighted to answer all of our questions and helped us feel welcome. Kelly, the tenant in the backyard house, was available to help with any issues, was extremely friendly, and never encroached on our privacy. You can't go wrong with this house or the great family that owns it. Highly recommend!!!!
I was surprised to see so few reviews for this rental but after talking to Pete, it seems like he only rents it in the summer…and usually to the same person. I can see why! This place feels like home at a high end hotel. The backyard is so perfect and I spent endless hours sitting on the outdoor patio listening to my kids splashing around in the pool. The only drawback is that many of our planned days melted away into hanging out in the backyard! And I still don’t know how this place costs so little for what it offers!
This rental house felt more like a home. very open and spacious. Master bedroom was spectacular, and the living room was very comfortable with an awesome T.V and all the channels you could possibly need! The backyard was very private. The pool was spectacular and the patio was great for chilling after a long day. The location is very convenient to the expressways. Also, a short drive to the beach and most of L.A's tourist destinations. Pete was easy to deal with and they made you feel at home!
Very nice house with all equipments inside. A very strategic situation to visit LA. We have really appreciated our stay (2 adults and 4 kids). We have also appreciated owners assistance when necessary but also their kindness.
The house fits the description. Thank you
Our home is in a quiet neighborhood in Valley Village. But don't let the peaceful surroundings fool you! There is a never-ending list of things to do.
We are a 5 minute drive from Universal Studios, 45 minutes to Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm, and 15 minutes from the sights on Hollywood Blvd. Also within a half hour drive are many beautiful beaches including Santa Monica, Venice and Malibu. We are less than a mile from Ventura Blvd which is a charming street with more restaurants and quaint boutiques than one could visit in a lifetime.
Beverly Hills is 10 miles away where one can shop on the famous Rodeo Drive or eat at any of the delicious and world renowned restaurants. There are at least 4 childrens' museums within 15 miles of our home; in addition to many museums for adults: The Getty, The LACMA, and The Natural History Museum to name a few.
If hiking is your thing, we are a mile from one of the best hikes in LA: Fryman Canyon (a 3 mile loop through the Santa Monica Mountains). If you're willing to drive 15 miles, you can hike to the top of the famous Hollywood Sign. Sushi Row, known for being the strip with the most sushi restaurants in a one mile radius (and better fish than you will ever eat!), is one mile away.
All of these things are full of surprises and wonder; if you can pull yourself away from the salt water pool, swingset, and gas BBQ in our back yard!
