Complete privacy, yet an easy walk to Westwood Village (10-15 minutes, 3 minutes by car), with shops, movies, dining, Farmer's market, grocery stores, vibrant street life, and all the excitement of the UCLA campus next-door. Extremely beautfiul backyard for entertaining, built-in bar-b-que, and lots of safety in pool for children. Pool is not large and only 4 feet deep at most, and has an electric cover, and a built-in hot/tub jacuzzi. Bedrooms: Master with King bed; 2nd Bedroom with twin + twin trundle; 3rd Bedroom with Bunk Beds for up to 4 kids or adults; 4th Bedroom with queen bed; 5th bedroom with twin bed; converted private garage with queen bed, direct entry into house.

You do not have to get on the freeway to reach Beverly Hills, the beaches, or anything else on the Westside of Los Angeles!

Perfect environment for a creative design retreat
Date of Stay
April 26, 2015
My team and I rented this beautiful property for a design retreat to plan our startup's next big product. With team members coming in from around the world, we needed accommodations for everyone and - more importantly -- an innovative environment that would foster creativity and rapid team bonding. This home exceeded my expectations in absolutely every way. With multiple brainstorming-friendly spaces, we were able to continuously shift environments to keep the creative juices flowing, moving from huddling around design plans on the big screen in the media room, to debating options on the poolside patio, to coding around the large table in the dining room, to cooking a meal together and getting to know each other better in the massive chef's kitchen. Moreover, it includes all the comforts of home. The fully-stocked pantry kept us from having to run to the grocery store when our Polish colleague needed bread crumbs to cook us schabowy (Polish pork schnitzel). It was great to be able to shoot a few hoops in the backyard when we needed a diversion. And the owner is wonderful and attentive -- checking in with us throughout the week and going out of her way to make us truly feel like welcome guests. I'd guess that "startup design retreat" probably wasn't what the owner imagined when she decided to make her home available for vacation rentals, but it was the perfect place for us. It would also be the perfect place for groups and families looking for a luxurioius getaway while visiting Los Angeles. A thousand times better than staying in a hotel! We'll definitely be back!
