Located in the heart of Los Feliz Village, near Hollywood/Griffith Prk
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! This charming, beautifully decorated, immaculate, approximately 1,500 sq. ft., two bedroom home is LOCATED! in the Heart of the Los Feliz Village, a fifteen minute drive west of downtown. Outside our front door is …
Very nice property, it looks even better then the pictures. Very spacious and clean, it has everything that you need so you feel at home. We were 2 adults and 2 teenagers and did not feel crowded at all. Jill and Gary were in vacation at the time of our arrival but their daughter Stepanie and son-in-law Michael were very helpful with any question or minor request that we had. There are plenty of restaurants at walking distance, a grocery shop nearby and the metro station is at 7 min walk, very convenient.
We are warmly recommending this property and we will definitely repeat the experience when will visit LA in the future. Thank you, Jill and Gary.
We chose this home because of its proximity to my sons' apartments and because of the appearance and amenities described. It exceeded our expectations. The home was very clean and well maintained. We prepared several family meals and also enjoyed eating at nearby restaurants on Vermont. I can't say enough about the location. The owners and their family were very friendly and were available to answer any questions or address any concerns. We hope to return for the holiday this winter!
Our group of 5 loved this apartment...homey, comfortable, clean, spacious (bigger than it looks in the pictures), nicely decorated and furnished, and with great beds. We did a lot of cooking and found the kitchen to be well supplied. And then there are the owners, Gary and Jill, who took our experience from good to great. They were gracious, warm, and generous, even lending us some of their own kitchen equipment. Other reviewers have called the apartment a home away from home, and that is so true! If I ever need a place to stay in LA again, this will be it.
Our family of three vacationed here early in the year and we were so happy that we found this rental, bearing in mind that it was the first we had ever rented. The apartment was huge! Much bigger than appears in the photos and the photos really do not dk this place justice. We really felt quite at home on our vacation. The place is stocked and furnished with everything you need. They even did us a courtesy by setting out toys for our lil 1.5 year old, which was absolutely not expected. As to cleanniness, no worries there. Location was perfect, walking distance to restaurants, bars, coffee shops, supermarket, everything you need. Oh, and the bed is the master bedroom is a dream. Better than most hotels we have stayed at. There was also plenty of channels to watch. It may sound too good to be true, but it really is!!
We left with a feeling of wanting to be permanent renters! But, all vacations must end - and we swear, it wasn't the vacation goggles, the place is truly beautiful.
Me and three friends (two couples) stayed at this lovely home for the past weekend, it is a great experience. The home has lots of character and the backyard is great, also the neiboughood is nice and safe, we had a great brunch at a nearby cafe. The owners were really welcoming and were very helpful in pointing out best way to get around town and even help me send out our postcards. I would stay here in a heartbeat next time I am in LA.
We traveled to L.A. for the graduation of our daughter and found an extremely cozy house, bright and in an excellent location. All was very clean, with all the necessary amenities, great beds in both rooms, TV sets in living and master bedroom with cable, PC & printer with internet, etc. After of the graduation Jill prepares us the garden to receive some friends and we spent a great evening, karaoke included ! There is a shopping center at walking distance, and a number of the most varied restaurants also nearby. Jill and Gary, our hosts, have solved any issues or concerns and have always been very helpful, in short, an excellent stay in sunny LA. we strongly recommend the experience.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Gary and Jill's house in Los Feliz. It was beautifully designed and clean, to be sure, but the owners had thought of everything to make a visit comfortable, down to the rack for drying clothes in the laundry room, the reading chair and footstool with a good lamp in the master bedroom, and the gas-fueled fireplace in the living room, to name three features that come to mind, among many. Probably most important, the owners are friendly, responsive and helpful, padding out to greet us in socked feet late on Christmas Eve, upon our arrival, and delivering to our apartment the makings of breakfast for the next morning . The house is well-located in an attractive neighborhood, several blocks from the subway and a short walk to grocery stores, a good bookstore, restaurants and coffee bars. Staying there made our visit to Los Angeles as enjoyable as it was. We felt that for the nine days of our visit, we were part of a welcoming community. If we were to return to Los Angeles for a visit, we would look forward to staying in the very same house, so positive was our experience there.
The moment we arrived at the lovely Mediterranean home on Vermont we knew we had made the perfect choice. Jill and Gary and their delightful family made us feel at home the instant we arrived...as if we had known them for years. Their generous nature and easy way of living was felt throughout our stay. The landscaping is lush and the home is spacious, warm and lovingly styled by Jill. It has everything you need and if by chance you need something special, Jill and Gary will deliver it to your door. The courtyard is both aesthetically welcoming and wonderfully functional....we spent many afternoons and evenings lounging in the hammocks and enjoying the cool covering of the grape vines. Jill and Gary regularly slipped notes under the door to make us aware of fun and often unusual events and hidden treasures in the immediate neighborhood and beyond. They shared their favorite restaurants and shopping venues and were always available to assist with last minute planning. The house is located in a walkable urban neighborhood with restaurants representing a variety of cuisines as well as unique shops and boutiques. Our favorite spots include breakfast at Figaro Bistrot, dinner at Il Capriccio, Ling Ling Clothing for Children and Coop 28 with its endless treasures...all within 5 minutes of “home”. We also recommend the Alcove on Hillhurst...al fresco dining with ambiance and tasty food. The house is ideally located near Hollywood and Griffith Park where we spent many a nights gazing into the starlit skies and admiring the infamous city lights from the Planetarium...an absolute must! It is also adjacent to several interesting neighborhoods including Silverlake, which offers endless dining options, unique shops and relaxing coffee shops. There are beautiful neighborhoods and architecturally significant homes to tour and we highly recommend the Warner Brothers studio tour. Activities for children are endless including the incredibly creative and educational exhibits at LACMA, the Getty Museum Campus, the remarkable Le Brea Tar Pits and the Santa Monica Pier. But even more compelling were the surf programs at Perfect Day Surf School, beach volleyball at Smith and Stoklos and fashion design at Cheryl Fudge Fashions. Our summer in LA began happily with Jill, Gary and their lovely family and ended 3 months later with a difficult but sweet "so long". We will return often to the generous hospitality of this Mediterranean Oasis!
We spent 6 nights here and our expectations were high because of all the wonderful reviews. The house is even better than the photos, the owners are even better than all the previous reviews lead you to believe, the location is perfect and I am certain we will return. Our daughter lives in the Los Feliz area so we will probably travel to LA at least once a year and hopefully we will plan far enough in advance to stay here. Thank you Gary & Jill for all your hospitality and the extras.
I have to rave about every aspect of this rental experience. From the ease of making the arrangements, to the responsiveness of Gary and Jill who graciously received us, as well as about the comfort we immediately felt upon arriving at our "weekend home" after a long drive. The pictures accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities but cannot convey the relaxing atmosphere of the interior, exterior and backyard of the property. We enjoyed it so much, we chose to stay "home" and cook or order carry-out from the many (fabulous) restaurants in the area so we could dine and visit in the comfort of the home! Gary and Jill have given thoughtful attention to details that truly show they care, not only about the property, but also those that stay as guests; things like having a self-selected key code for unlocking the deadbolt on the front door, to having local menus and restaurant reviews compiled in a binder along with area maps, and attractions. Books, magazines, DVDs, cable tv and a computer are there for browsing at leisure. The beds and linens were top notch and the furniture was cozy-comfortable! Gary and Jill encouraged us to ask if there was anything or anyway that they could be of assistance, and although there was nothing that we lacked during our stay, I sensed that they were sincere and would have obliged a request without hesitation.
I would definitely return and would recommend this property to a friend or relative.
