Description of the Studio City vacation guesthouse rental
THEY COME AS STRANGERS AND LEAVE AS FRIENDS...

Stay where scenes from the Lifetime movie, "William & Kate were shot. Look no further! This totally (upscale) beautifully furnished Guest House/Inn is a perfect little paradise for one person, a couple or a family. (Another area would need to be opened for a family--explained below.) Feel like you're in the tropics in your own home away from home. This quiet tree-lined cul-de-sac street offers a serene environment for a writer or a movie/music industry executive who wants a peaceful setting to come home to.

The Enchanted Manor has been home to many celebrities such as Chuck Woolery, John Marx (music agent-William Morris Agency) Keith Samples (Rysher Entertainment) Laurie Metcalf, (producer/actress- costar of the Roseanne Show and several movies) and many directors and advertising executives from New York, Detroit and abroad. Even the Princess of Ghana makes this her home when visiting the Los Angeles area. The secluded nature of the inn lends itself to the entertainment world.

It's an enchanting oasis. Entertain friends around the fire pit or outside fireplace on your private patio, or have your business meetings at the Gazebo Bar. Or just enjoy a hot Jacuzzi at the end of a hard day. Celebrity Chef Kurt Ehrlich (chef to Ronald Reagan) is available to prepare dinner for a private poolside romantic evening. Massage therapist on call.

There is a secret room behind a bookcase that leads to a finished attic with cable TV, DVD and has 3 twin size beds. Kids, teens and adventurous adults love it! If this room is used an addition living room area is open to you, creating another 1000 feet of living space. If this space is needed for additional people there is an extra charge. The property has a tree house and a play house that is a mini version of the main house. Crib and highchair are available.

This is the perfect property for the business traveler, or a romantic vacation rental. It's a magical place for families with children with the play house and tree house for hours of enjoyment. If you travel with your work and stay in hotels while in Los Angeles, this can't be more perfect. Home away from home for less the cost of hotel living. A comfortable and inviting atmosphere with WIFI, cable TV (with premiere stations) and DVD players in every room including the play house. Maid service and laundry area are available. All that is needed is a tooth brush and a bathing suit. Email me for more photo's or check out The Enchanted Manor's fan page on face book. Video's of the property can be seen there too.

Smoking is allowed outside on the many patio's. Small pet will be considered.


Property also available for parties/events/weddings/banquets. STARTING PRICE IS $2500.00 FOR UP TO 50 PEOPLE. CALL FOR PRICE ON LARGER PARTIES

Our Enchanted stay

Guest: Family of five(Bolton, UK)
Date of Stay: 08/07/10 Review Submitted: 09/03/10

This place is certainly 'enchanting'! A wonderful place and a fabulous location, perfect for visiting all the sights in LA and Hollywood. The photo's do not do this place justice, my youngest son still can't stop talking about the treehouse and the secret room! The house was very roomy and big enough to accommodate the five of us. The place was very clean and the owner Georgia was the perfect host and couldn't do enough for us. We so enjoyed sharing a glass of wine with her around the hot coals one evening! We would certainly recommend this house to all our family and friends and would love to return one day. Thank you so much Georgia.

Everything we wanted and MORE!

Guest: Mary Beth (Cedar Falls, IA)
Date of Stay: 07/18/10 Review Submitted: 08/10/10

We found EVERYTHING to be just as it was pictured! It was an absolutely delightful experience in every way. We were looking for a child friendly place where we would be able to entertain our CA children and gradnchildren in addition to the two grandchildren we brought along with us. This property provided all that we were hoping for. The kids were able to swin and play while we were all out with them putting supper on the BBQ. We were there from 7/18/2010 through 7/26/2010 and only left the property to do other things 4 times. The children were content to stay which gave us the opportunity to relax and reconnect with our CA family. As wonderful as this property is the REAL gem is the owner! Georgia is the consumate host. She provides for your privacy while making sure you have everything you need. She is warm, gracious, and she immediately makes you feel at ease Honestly, she is truly an amazing person in MANY ways. Will we stay there again? ABSOLUTELY! In additon we have been recommending it to all our friends. If you are looking for a vacation experience that you all will forever remember do not look any further. . . book the Enchanted Manor. . . you will look back on it for years to come with very fond memories. In addition, you will make a remarkable new friend. Thank you Georgia! Max and Mary Beth

Owner response: I have been called a "Soul Collector" by my friends. If that is true, I have certainly added Mary Beth and Max to that collection. What wonderful souls they are!

This place is gorgeous! My husband and I took our 6 kids to L.A for four days and stayed at The Enchanted Manor. It is exactly like the photos. The house has a full kitchen and there are two grills for cooking out in the beautiful backyard. The house is clean and well kept. The backyard is totally private. We enjoyed the evenings in the hot tub and pool after a day of sight-seeing. The house is close to all of the tourist activities as well (Universal Studios, Hollywood walk of fame, Venice and Santa Monica beaches, Hollywood sign etc). Georgia, the owner is lovely, and willing to help in any way. This was so much nicer than staying in a hotel! We loved it and would stay here again!

Our stay at the Enchanted Manor was excellent. I decided to take my wife and 6yr old son as a special surprise and it was. The manor is nicely furnished with everything you may need. The back yard is a child's paradise my son never wanted to leave. The manor is easy to get to and exactly 7 minuets for Universal Studios. I have no problem recommending this to anyone. I normally only stay in hotels and this was a stretch for me but I am very happy I stayed here and look forward to coming back next year. Our Hostess Georgia is a wonderful lady and we came as guests and left as friends.

Date of Stay: 05/02/10 Review Submitted: 05/11/10

we just returned home from our visit to california. we were looking for motel accomodations and our son in valley village said we should really look for a rental property. since we had never done anything like that before we were just a little bit leary. we found the enchanted manor and fell in love with the pictures. our granddaughter paige called and said please gramma donna can we stay there. it was so perfect that we looked no farther. we absolutely loved our stay and will definitely return again and would recommend the inn for all our friends and relatives. georgia was wonderful and we fell in love with her. whenever we needed anything from adjusting the house temperature or the pool temperature to the best restaurants in the vicinity she was there to help us. we couldn't be more pleased with our stay. it was hard saying goodbye on our last day.

Date of Stay: 03/31/10 Review Submitted: 04/07/10

I recently stayed at the Enchanted Manor with my 19 year old son, his 13 year old cousin, and the cousin's 13 year old friend. Impressing teenage boys of any age is no small feat, but all three were speechless upon seeing The Enchanted Manor for the first time. Everything was clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. The homeowner made sure that we had everything we needed and was very helpful with any questions we had. Both the interior and the yard were designed beautifully, and the boys very much enjoyed the built in pool with the hot tub and waterfall. I hosted a BBQ for friends in the yard and they were just as impressed with the house as we were. The location is perfect for touring Los Angeles and the surrounding area. It was easy to get to and from places like Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, etc. After hearing so much about it, my wife and the rest of my family are now looking forward to their chance to stay at The Enchanted Manor the next time we all come to California.

Enchanting Stay!

Guest: Chickabey(Pacific NW)
Date of Stay: 03/19/10 Review Submitted: 03/29/10

My 24 year old daughter and her 24 year old roomate and roomates mother stayed at the Enchanted Manor for a mother/daughter weekend. We had a lovely stay and it turned out to be a great place for us! Georgia, the owner, is delightful! She lives on the property, but if you want privacy she'll make herself scarce! But don't - invite her out to the patio for a glass of wine as she is so enjoyable! :) The guesthouse worked for us, but we were creative with the sleeping spaces, but there were plenty of options. If you need private bedrooms for multiple people it might mean sleeping on a comfy couch - so ask Georgia - she'll help you out! As we said - there were good options. We were delighted and would certainly come back! Additionally the back yard patio/pool area/ firepit are great! We hosted a small barbecue for a few of our daughters friends and it was perfect!

Owner response: I have met such wonderful people who have visited The Enchanted Manor from all over the world. They come as strangers and leave as friends.

My stay at the enchanted cottage.

Date of Stay: 03/22/10 Review Submitted: 03/25/10

My daughter and I had a marvelous week at Georgia's magical cottage. I didn't feel like I was in LA. It's an oasis in the middle of the San Fernando Valley. It is close to just about everything I needed to do. My little one especially loved the secret room, not to mention the waterfall out back.

Owner response: Such wonderful people visit here.

Thanks, Georgia, for a wonderful event at your enchanted manor! Yours was the perfect spot for hosting our Murder Mystery Dinner Party, and my guests enjoyed the meal and the setting immensely. It was perfect for a fun getaway in our own backyard, and you and Chef Kurt and staff were perfectly accomodating. Thanks ever so much for a perfect setting, a perfect evening, and a night my guests will remember for a very long time.
