Wonderful Hollywood stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was spacious, comfortable, well furnished and very clean, making my mother's 85th birthday celebration there a great sucess. Hollywood attractions are only a few minutes away. I appreciated Mr. Wong's communication with my first rental, and highly recommend his property to anyone interested in a superlative Hollywood stay!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I were pleasantly surprised with our last minute VRBO booking! We returned to LA for the second time in a month and had agreed we could not do the hotel thing again for 10 days. Hak answered all my questions before we booked and offered help with anything we needed. We were able to walk to my son's recording studio as well as most restaurants. Perfect location, nice neighbors, lots of space, and help is only a phone call away. We would highly recommend !

Great location but needed cleaning

  • 3 of 5

Nice touch with a candy & fruit welcome. The kitchen stove & floor weren't cleaned. One upstairs bedroom & bathroom had dirty floors cobwebs & spiders. We also saw a mouse in the kitchen. Asked him to negotiate the cleaning fee without any success.

Owner's Response: I checked in Len L's friend on July 29th without any problem, everything was fine with him. Len L was to arrive on a later time. There was no further call or communication until the day they check-out, when Len L claimed that the floors were not clean, and she saw spiders and a mouse, and she wanted money back!!! I asked her why nobody said anything on the first day so my assistants could clean it. Anyone could track dirt getting in and out of the house. If the doors were left open, ants and spiders could get inside in a day. There has never been any mouse complain the past 10yr, no dropping or chewed up food. I refused any refund to her.

Fantastic comfort and hospitality!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were attending a wedding at the Lombardi House in Hollywood this weekend, and found this property on VRBO. As first time short term renters we were amazed at how prepared the owner and the property were. We brought everything we thought we might need for a three day stay, and to our delight found that everything we could possibly need, and things we didn't even think of were already there. The owner and his maintenance man met us there to make sure we were satisfied with the property and to let us know that they were available to us anytime in case we needed anything at all. The house is absolutely beautiful with every amenity one might need. There is plenty of parking, room for children to play, and a great patio / bbq grill set up for the adults to enjoy. Both the children and adults were happy and comfortable. It is definitely a home away from home. If you want to really enjoy your vacation without stress and still have the comfort of home, this is the place for you!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Darlene, what a great family you have! Her family came from Arizona for a wedding. They were just wonderful guests, so warm and friendly, characteristic of someone from the tropical pacific islands, Guam in fact. It was a delight to host them. They kept the house clean, and were easy to communicate, no problem at all. My assistant and I would welcome them again anytime.

I fell under the spell of the classic architecture, and the old detailed woodwork throughout the house. It is warm and inviting. The central location to Hollywood is attractive to many.

This house is centrally located, walkable to all of Hollywood, and short rides to most Southern California attractions. Yet it is spacious and calming. It makes an ideal retreat from the bustle and to recharge your energy and refresh your senses.
