Cozy Retreat in Valley VIllage

December 3, 2014

We spent the Thanksgiving holiday (with our dog ) in the Garden Suite apartment. It was a perfect location for us, being very near family in Valley Village and LA. The apartment was exactly as cozy and attractive as pictured online and provided a spacious, comfortable and QUIET retreat during a hectic holiday. The grandchildren visited twice and the private backyard was a great place for the 3 year old to throw balls for our golden. The location was convenient to our children, to shopping, and to restaurants, and very dog friendly - we met a lot of dogs on our regular walks. Helen provided everything we needed and then some, with fresh fruit, bottles of water, and cookies on the table when we arrived as well as a detailed notebook of instructions, suggestions, and tips for travelers. Parking was off the street and near the apartment front outside stairs, making luggage carrying easy. All of us especially enjoyed comfortably sitting out on the covered deck (really another room) enjoying both privacy and the good weather. This was such a pleasant experience after the hassle of hours spent on the I5 that I hope we will return often.

Awesome location and large, clean apartment

January 6, 2014

My partner, toddler and I felt instantly at home in this large two bedroom apartment. It was everything we'd hoped it would be and more! Location was unreal allowing us to walk across the street to beautiful coffee shops and small boutiques. The park for our son was only a couple of blocks away and one of the best parks we've been to. He loved it! The place was super clean and had its own unique character. Kitchen is a great size with heaps of condiments etc there to use. Wireless internet and cable tv/movies! A relaxing stay all round!

Cottage in the City

September 11, 2013

I very seldom write reviews but I felt compelled to submit one for this property. First, the apartment was located in a great neighborhood. It was quiet and centrally located to stores. Restaurants were also in close proximity. Secondly, the rooms were large and very nicely furnished. The large French doors leading to the patio gave one the feeling of being in a cottage in the country. The kitchen was well stocked with all the spices, condiments, and utensils that anyone could possibly need to cook a delicious meal. If your not a kitchen chef then there was a great BBQ gas grill to cook on located on the patio next to the patio furniture where you could enjoy eating your meal. Finally, the apartment contained a small grassy yard which was fenced in and had a birdbath fountain. This was awesome and was very private, we thoroughly watching the doves come and go. My wife and I would highly recommend this property.

Perfect home away from home

June 3, 2012

My mother and aunt came to visit for my graduation, and this was the perfect getaway for them very close to our house! My fiance and I spent more time at this place with them than we did our home! We were all so impressed - immaculate, peaceful, great amenities, all well done. Thank you!

The Pictures are perfect, and so was our stay!

November 7, 2011

We stayed in the property on our recent visit to LA, we were looking for a pet friendly place, and found this online. When we arrived, we found dog bowls in 3 sizes, dog treats and fresh flowers in both rooms. The furniture is beautiful, comfortable and there are throw blankets and pillows everywhere to make things cozy and warm. The yard and patio area is amazing and we spent alot of time out there with our 4 legged children. They have not left out any details, there are dishes, spices, and anything you need to cook or entertain, plus the towels and linens are high quality and even the shampoo and soap dispensers are full of high quality products. We will certainly be back soon, and as much as I hate to share this secret, it is so much nicer and cost effective as the hotels/motels in the area. I hope you all enjoy your next stay, you will be pleasantly spoiled and pampered by this property and the owners!!!!

One of the Best Kept Secrets in LA!

July 18, 2011

My family and I were elated as we walked through the front door of this hidden jewel. The property was fabulous and in excellent condition and the Welcome Basket that Helen left us in the kitchen made us feel we were at home. The location was super urban chic and close to so many of the local attractions. With the Metrorail station only being a mile and a half away and taxis available everywhere, we did not even need to rent a car. When we return to LA, my family and I will definitely be renting from Helen again.

Very clean and Nice

When I arrived the place was clean, there was a basket of fruit on the table, and the entire place felt like home. I have stayed if a few places in the Los Angeles area and this is well worth it.

The Studio City Garden Suite was spectacular, -- the perfect size with great amenities, a well-stocked kitchen, lovely linens and immaculately clean. The private garden was a bonus and we love everything about the rental.

Wonderful Vacation Experience

January 18, 2009

My sister and I truly loved our stay. The unit is located in a safe, pretty neighborhood that was cozy, comfortable, and clean. We especially loved the darling garden where we were able to relax and enjoy the warm California sun. We were able to leave the cold and snow in Nebraska for a week, which was most wonderful. I can highly recommend staying at this darling vacation rental and will stay again in the future.

The best place we have ever stayed

September 20, 2008

We have stayed in apartments all over Europe and the US in the past and most have been really good, but none has been better than this one. We stayed in the upstairs unit and it was extremely well-equipped, comfortable and a lovely,relaxing place to come back to at the end of each day. It was well-placed for sightseeing and well-served by shops and restaurants. The thing that made it stand out most, however, was Helen's eagerness to make sure that we had everything we needed and to help make our stay a good one. We would unreservedly recommend this property to anyone.
