Beautiful and comfortable house. My group thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor area. The owner was easy to communicate with and immediately responsive to any questions or concerns. I would definitely stay here again.
This vacation home is located in North Hollywood. Universal CityWalk and Hollywood and Highland Center are worth checking out if shopping is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's popular attractions can visit Warner Brothers Studio and Universal Studios Hollywood™. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ and Los Angeles Zoo are not to be missed.Visit our North Hollywood travel guide
~~Spacious house and backyard. Space wise accommodated our large group comfortably. Has security cameras for outside areas a plus I guess for renter and owner. ~~ Lots of specific instructions on expectations, rules and trash to follow. Rinsing out all bottles and cans prior to and only placing in garbage bags would result in fines/fees up to 1K if not followed. REALLY!?! ~~Multiple communications from owner during our stay regarding specifics of amenities and payments for spa/pool fees.... ~~Bummer to pay 30 to heat the "spa" and 60 for the pool-- PER DAY (day meaning only the hours allowed by owner)!! pool and"jacuzzi/spa" has usage hours per owners guidelines and has to be approved by the owner prior to it turning on for use. Can not heat both at the same time or keep fountains on longer than a few minutes. Most of us were usually out of the house site seeing and trying to enjoy our vaca.. getting in late and then can't use the spa to relax at night. "spa"doesn't heat and jets don't turn on unless owner approves so if your getting in at 9pm tough luck because you wouldn't be able to use the amenities you rented this house for AND the hot tub water wasn't very clean! ***~REAL BUMMER was Air conditioning- set the temp to 72 when we checked in, house would't cool off. Noticed all vents were closed so remedied that and reset temp, but house still stayed warm. Went bought fans(4) to use in the house to help with the airflow and warmth after we set the thermostat again. Then realized that the Nest thermostat had scheduled temps which kept overriding the temperture we were comfortable at to the set temps the owner had programmed to what he thought was appropriate. I turned that schedule off after everyone was hot af as the neighborhood didn't feel safe enough to have the windows open at night (only faraway gunshots were heard thankfully) When traveling with heat intolerant older adults, they can not tolerate a stale 78 degrees in the house and 75 at night! Felt like we were being watched after figuring all this out.
