Totally blown away!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a true gem. It's chic but comfy. Spacious and private! Perfect for a nice getaway, and the location is really perfect. Todd is amazing! I couldn't be more pleased with his response time. I'll admit I threw him a couple of curve balls and he was very accommodating. The house felt like my own in that everything was easy to use and immediately accessible. I hated to leave but I will definitely come back again!

In and out burger

  • 4 of 5

The house is clean. It does what it says it does provides clean beds and a pleasant environment. There are no personal touches little contact with the owner, just like an in and out burger tastes ok and does the job. The only criticism was that pool furniture is quite dirty and the pool had a great big tide mark round it when the level dropped

Owner's Response: Thank you Kathryn, Sorry your stay was less than a 5-Star experience. Thanks for letting me know about the pool. Will get that taken care of. Best, Todd

Perfect spot for visiting LA

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and modern with lots of unique touches and great flow. Appliances were high-end and having the sliding glass wall was plain glorious. It is walking distance from the Griffith Park and many shops and restaurants. The neighborhood was very safe and quiet with tree-lined streets and a relaxed vibe. There are shops and restaurants only a block or two away and all the major tourist attractions are also very close by. I only wish we had more time to enjoy the place but we were on a tight schedule. If you like to grill like we do make sure to get your meat and fish at the McCall's Meat & Fish store on Hillhurst Ave it's much better than anything you'll get at the chain grocery stores. Todd was a great host and we would definitely come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you Marcin, and agreed!! McCall's is the best in this city for fish and meat, and only a 2 minute drive away. Glad you had a great trip. Best, Todd

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, stylish with a wonderful pool area. We were a small family with two kids and had more space than we needed. The property is well kept and very comfortable.

Fantastic family base for a SoCal vacation

  • 5 of 5

The villa and pool were beautiful and communication with Todd was swift and easy.

We stayed with our daughter and her grandparents but the villa afforded us the layout and space that we needed as well as a great location to come together.

Fab restaurants/ bars and grocery stores all close by and the villa is also very handy for Dodgers stadium and all of the usual tourist spots.

We would certainly recommend this villa to anyone looking for the very best in LA
