About Linda Bruce

Our family moved here after My husband builit our home for us and his parents. They have since then moved on from this world. As we feel homes need to be lived in we want to share our guest house with others.

Linda Bruce purchased this guest house in 2000

Why Linda Bruce chose Simi Valley

We brought this property and developed it into what it is today. Our children grew up on the ranch, my husband and I moved to Simi when we were first married.

What makes this guest house unique

We have a beautiful setting. Three custom buildings, surrounded by the avocado orchard. There are trails to walk on to see the views of Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, and Simi Valley.

Stunning landscapes, peaceful, well appointed home.

  • 5 of 5

This is a most lovely location, easy to find and very comfortable. It is a bit unusual to be so close to the owners but they were really not visible as they go about their daily lives and yet responsive to questions and requests. The house is open and airy and the grounds are impeccable.

Lovely stay on avacado ranch!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property close to LA. There were five of us for six days and the guest house is lovely and expansive and the grounds are peaceful and sublime. Linda was great and super responsive to our needs and provided many special touches that we greatly appreciated, from high quality bathroom products to a welcome basket with wine and goodies. Our only suggestion might be to think about an upgrade for the entertainment center -- a bigger TV would definitely be a plus for movie watching!! Other than that, it's a great getaway with some terrific hikes right out side the door.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Very nice guest house, situated on a gorgeous property. Linda, the host, is very responsive and communicative. A couple things to keep in mind:

1) This is a guest house, with the owners/hosts living on the main property about 15 feet away from the guest house. Not a huge deal, unless you are looking for more privacy. But it will certainly feel like you are "sharing" the property with the owners during your stay.

2) There is one full bath, one 3/4 bath, and one 1/2 bath (the 3/4 bath has a bathtub, but no shower). Since there is only 1 shower, this may pose a challenge for larger groups.

3) The communal pool is beautiful, but it is located directly outside the owner's house, meaning that host's living room directly overlooks the pool. This may not work for you, if you are expecting your own private pool.

Assuming you are comfortable with all of the above, this is a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We enjoyed having you for our guests. To our future guests a few things to keep in mind. 1) The guest house is part of a 3 acre compound situated inside a 68 acre avocado grove. The guest house is 80 feet away from main residence and positioned for maximum privacy. 2) Guest house contains two master suites, one with walk in shower and one with deep soaking tub. Also a guest bedroom and guest bath inside generous living areas of 2000 sq ft. 3) Pool and spa are located 70' down slope from main residence and 30' from pool house with outside shower. Pool area shares beautiful views of golf course , clubhouse and surrounding mountain and valley. Pool access is available 24/7 to our guests. Pool and spa are for the exclusive use of property owners and guests and is in no way a communal pool.

Spectacular Home

We could not have imagined how beautiful this home was going to be. Beautiful home, spectacular setting, very private and the owners went overboard to make sure everything was perfect.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful property. The location was quiet, gorgeous and maintained to perfection. This "hacienda-style guesthouse" was hardly a guesthouse! It was large enough for the 6 of us, furnished for comfort and sophistication. The owner's attention to detail created such a lovely, relaxed place to reconnect and enjoy our family weekend. The pool and hot tub were spectacular and hikes around the avocado trees were truly a lovely experience. Everything exceeded our expectations, thanks to these gracious hosts. Hoping we can revisit...soon!
