About the Owner
Great Place. Great Location. Great People
Steve, thanks so much for the use of your beautiful home. We had a great time, and couldn't be happier. Everything we needed was in place and the pool was great. Will definitely look you up again, next time we're in town. thanks again.
We had a great time. Location worked perfectly for us, house was well stocked, and had clear instructions for all things such as WiFi access. Steve answered my question about setting the air conditioning in a very timely manner. The pool area was delightful, had several areas to sit and relax, and umbrellas to shade us from the sun.
Yep! I would stay again.
This house is better than the pictures. It is an older home with charm. We walked through the gate and could hardly wait to see the rest! The front yard is adorable, the house is great, and the pool area was awesome!
Here are the Pro's:
-Plenty of towels and bedding.
-Clean pool and hot tub area.
-Close to Universal Studios, Warner Brothers Studio Tour, and about 30 minutes to Six Flags Magic Mountain.
-Close to Bob Hope/Burbank airport
-Well stocked. Maybe even over stocked.
-Tankless water heater (but don't take long showers during the drought)
-Newer master bathroom. I liked the shower.
-The piano was a hit with the musicians in our family
-They have an A/C system that actually is the right size for this house and cools it!
-Felt quiet and private
-Grocery store very close
Observations: (These are very minor. Maybe even nit picky)
-Wordy rules and regulations to follow, especially while on vacation. Owners are particular about use of lights, water use, noise and pool use. We are a respectful, quiet family but I did feel like we had to be careful to follow all the directions and requirements. I just wanted to relax and zone out, not worry if I left a light on or took a shower for a couple extra minutes. They state that these rules are in place due to a drought. Maybe if you visit earlier in the season these rules wouldn't be an issue.
-I was longing for one non stick pan. Everything was stainless.
-This kitchen is fully stocked but for some reason there wasn't a dry measuring cup for kids pancake mix. Not a big deal. I just winged it.
-The house a curiously large amount of shampoo and conditioner stocked. You won't need to bring your own.
-There was one pool toy. We bought our own and left them for the next guests to use. I was surprised they didn't have a couple more pool toys.
We did go to Disneyland and California Adventure. It is at minimum a 1 hour drive. We knew this in advance but decided to stick with this rental anyway because it was close to other things we were doing.
This is a lovely VRBO that I would absolutely visit again! Thanks for having us.
Charming place with great amenities in a terrific location for us
A family trip of guys to see the youngest brother (living 3 blocks away), Universal studios park, Malibu and Griffen park used this wonderful place as its base. Additionally we hung out in the huge pool, cooked on the grill and watched the Eurocup on a great tv/sound system. The master bedroom features a fully re-done bath is top quality. Our hosts made sure we knew to contact them with any questions yet left us to ourselves. The house has directions for all things TV, Wi-Fi, bathroom, etc strategically located to ensure we knew how to use them. Truly a wonderful place for a visit. Will look forward to using it again when in the area.
Amazing family haven in central LA you simply cannot beat!
Our stay at this property was amazing! Steve and Jeannine's property is a quiet haven away from the hustle and bustle but still close enough to all the major attractions. The house is immaculate and very clean. The pool and spa was a god send with 2 energetic kids who needed to burn energy!
Walking distance to a big supermarket is a real bonus. Really hospitable hosts and we would definitely stay here again if we are in LA. We would not hesitate to recommend to couples and families.
