My husband and I stayed in the upstairs duplex for a week. It was exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. It is located in a nice residential area, but still within walking distance of some businesses (such as grocery and Starbucks). The unit was very spacious, clean, nicely furnished and well-maintained. We particularly enjoyed the lovely covered porch...great place to have your morning coffee and read the paper! Helen was a great hostess and even had a welcome basket waiting for us upon arrival. Throughout our rental process, Helen was very helpful and quick to respond to emails. We would highly recommend this unit and hope we have the opportunity to stay there again.
Thank you Helen for offering us this apartment for our stay in L.A. It looked great in the photographs, and it is exactly as shown or better. It is immaculately clean and has everything you could possibly want when on holiday. Helen provides a starter fruit bowl which was very nice and a folder full of useful information, restaurants, shopping etc. We just used Jons supermarket, a convenient short walk over the road. Otsego is very quiet despite the motorways sorry freeways being really close. The apartment is really well located with Studio City 2 mins down the road, Warner Brothers studio about 15 mins away and Universal about 20. We made it all the way back from the Griffith Observatory one evening in about 20 mins and one morning all the way to the Getty Museum in about the same amount of time. We paticularly enjoyed the terrace. The sun is on it all day. So we were able to have our breakfast outside in the morning and if back, dinner in the evening. We don't have hummingbirds in England so having them on the terrace feeder with us was a real privilege. It is not mentioned in the information but in the cabinet in the living room is a huge TV. We could not wish for a better place to stay for our once in a lifetime vacation to LA. If you have any questions or concerns about this apartment email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be more than happy to get back.
My husband and I stayed in this blissful haven for six nights and our only regret was that we couldn't stay for a month. From its perfect location in a leafy garden setting on a quiet tree-lined street to its cozy interiors, this romantic retreat made us feel as if we were living in an English country cottage rather than being moments away from a buzzing metropolis. The apartment was so well appointed with everything we could wish for (heavenly bed, quality linens and towels, fully stocked kitchen and laundry, fast wifi, cable TV, sunny garden and romantic balcony ) that it was hard to drag ourselves away. When we did venture out to explore the many great restaurants in the neighbourhood there were lots to choose from. Asian fusion food at Spice Season was memorable, as was the creative Mexican fare at Ceremony. Having stayed at other vacation rentals in Helen's collection we already knew what an awesome host she is. Everything is taken care of with care, thoughtfulness and efficiency. Can't recommend this perfect place highly enough.
I'd stayed at one of Helen's properties previously so I knew my wife and I could expect a clean, well appointed apartment, and that's exactly what we got. This lovely upstairs apartment is on a quiet block with off-street parking under a vine covered carport. The apartment is in a great location too, right off Laurel Canyon and very convenient to most areas of LA. Don't let the stairs detour you as they are wide with a small landing halfway, and we appreciated the privacy of being upstairs. The stairs bring you up to a lovely porch where I enjoyed sitting in the morning and where the front door leads you into the living room you see in the pictures. Speaking of the pictures, everything is exactly as it's presented in these pictures so if you like what you see, that's what you'll get. Helen is a marvelous host and we were greeted with her traditional fruit basket, but she also went out of her way to try to accommodate some special requests we had. The bedroom is large and has a decent sized bathroom. The living room leads into a dining room with a small table. We only ate breakfast in the apartment as we spent our days out in SoCal so we didn't take full advantage of the well stocked kitchen, but if you want to fix meals then everything you need is there. If you've read this far then you're obviously past considering staying in a hotel (which Lord knows why you would do that when you can have a full-blown apartment at maybe half the cost), and as a person that has stayed in many VBRO's and HomeAways I can highly recommend this apartment as one that will meet or exceed your expectations as it did mine.
If you are wondering where to stay in Los Angeles, this is it! Otsego A is a delightfully spacious extremely well appointed cozy apartment, very close to the studios. I needed a place of peace from my hectic job and found the quiet serenity of the front porch and completely fenced in back yard more than I could have hoped for! The bed was super comfortable and provided for restful sleep. And the kitchen!! It's brand new and has everything you could possibly need. Helen is a lovely manager and incredibly kind and accommodating, she goes above and beyond! I felt right at home immediately and hated to leave! If you are looking for a top notch turn key living situation in a great neighborhood, you need look no further. I would recommend this unit over and over! Thank you for all you do Helen!!! You are a gem!
Quiet clean and perfect location. Loved staying there!
My husband and I always stay at Helen's Valley Village apartment. It is our home away from home!
We've found our go-to rental while visiting our daughter in LA. This home is in a beautiful, walkable neighborhood in Valley Village, with tree lined streets and well kept homes. The inside is cozy, beautifully decorated, and is equipped with all we need for a short or long stay. Our favorite feature is the front porch, with plenty of furniture for relaxing. The back yard is private, and equipped with a gas grill and table that seats 4. Helen and Diana are wonderful hosts!
Beautifully maintained, perfect location near to our family.
I can't rate this property high enough! It deserves more than five stars, that's for sure. The location is ideal because it is near where our son lives, but that's just the beginning. My wife and I were just awestruck at how beautifully the apartment was decorated in perfect vintage style, but yet the kitchen and bathroom were so updated with every new appliance and both rooms so bright. I haven't even started yet. The porch just made us feel like we had lived there for years. We spent as much time there as we could. The back yard was our own private virtual paradise, even though there there are other residences around it. Helen and Diane are just so nice and welcoming, it isn't a surprise the apartment felt like home. We even got to park in the carport, which is engulfed with so many fragrant flowers that we just stood by the car and took it all in every time we got there. Thank you Helen and Diane for your tender, loving care. We just can't wait to come visit again.
