our stay at Todds house in Los Feliz was awesome, the house was in great shape and a perfect location for everything from griffith park to Hollywood, our family stayed for 3 weeks which went so fast because we had such a perfect stay. The house is perfect for families with children, plenty of space as well. The kitchen was great as well. We highly recommend staying at the Madmen house as we will be back next summer for sure. Todd and Logan were great hosts and were always making sure things were going well. Thanks again Todd for allowing us to stay at your wonderful home. Regards
This place is unbelievable! I'm kind of tempted to downplay its awesomeness so I increase my odds for future bookings!
I stayed here for a work trip with several coworkers. The location was magical--the house was really clean, very modern and very relaxing. Special features throughout the home (waterfall in the pool, gas fireplace, rain-shower, giant bathtub and coffee machine) made the experience more like a vacation rather than a work trip.
During our stay my team and I walked through the neighborhood to cafes, shops, diners, etc; we hiked up to observatory. Uber was a breeze as an option to get to further parts of LA as needed. It was a perfect location and perfect house. I'd recommend it to anyone! (despite my wanting to go back again and again!).
Todd was super pleasant, attentive, very flexible and greeted me when I first arrived to give me tour of all the fun features of the house.
If I could give it a higher rating the five-stars, I absolutely would!
Two coworkers and I stayed in the house recently, and I can't say enough good things about it! The location is amazing, it's literally at the base of the Observatory and Greek Theater! The pool and landscaping are pristine. Todd made sure to walk us through the place and show us specific details on how to heat the pool, turn on the waterfall and fireplace, use the espresso machine...the list goes on and on. The house was spotless and more than big enough for the 3 of us - plenty of space, with our own bathroom and TV in each bedroom. Todd responded quickly on anything we needed.
Can't wait to come back for fun next time!
We came with two small children and had a wonderful time. The house is so comfortable and pretty, the neighbourhood is wonderful and walkable, and it's so close to Griffiths Park. The pool is also ideal for kids, with a ledge for less confident swimmers to perch on. Every bedroom is as nice as the next, the ensuites are terrific and the kitchen is great and easy to use. Every time we wanted something it was already there - everything had been thought of.
Just a great place to stay. We didn't want to leave.
Very helpful and pleasing owner and manager. We had a fantastic time. Villa absolutely stunning with all amenities. Highly recommendable
The house was exceptional. The layout is great for families to relax, swim, eat and even enjoy chess by the fireplace at night. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which for us with kids was awesome. The house had everything we needed to enjoy the So Cal lifestyle, and was very clean as well as organized and had a well thought out floorpan. Both the owner and the property manager were available and accommodated our request to heat the pool very quickly. All the restaurants recommended were spot on and the nearby hiking was great. We will definetly be staying here again.
Hollywood 5 minutes away, Downtown LA just 20 minute drive. Subway is 20 minute walk. Glendale, 10 minutes, Pasadena 20 minutes, Burbank 10 minutes...WONDERFUL LOCATION
