My family and I arrived on Monday, July 27, 2015 to a gorgeous home that is obviously cared for with love. There was an awesome welcome basket on the kitchen counter which included; fruit and cookies. The bedrooms are beautiful with very clean bathrooms and the entire house was spaciously decorated with care. There were also plenty of extra towels, throws, and most any other regular convenience that you would have in your own home. The Welcome binder provided much needed information about popular attractions as well as details about the local area. We had dinner at a local Thai restaurant that was recommended in the Welcome binder and the food was fabulous! Manager Helen, was very kind and helpful which made our vacation extremely problem free. My family and I would not hesitate to book any locations managed by Helen for future travel. Sincerely, Victoria Parker
This was the second time that we stayed at Hartsook house and it certainly will not be the last. It's very spacious, has an amazing garden to relax in and is in a quiet neighborhood but close enough to Universal Studio and the freeway to be able to get everywhere. Helen is an absolute joy to deal with. Looking forward to being back in the summer.
The Hartsook property was super! It was very clean and had nice up to date appliances. It had lots of space and we appreciated it being in a lovely, quitet neighborhood as we were headed to bed by 7pm most nights being from the east coast. It provided us with all the space and amenities to make it a perfect place for three of us. The property is beautifully decorated and great thought was given to the small things one might need (from luggage racks to beach towels). We loved having the washer/dryer and being able to pack less so that we could shop more! If you stay, be sure to read about the history of Mr. Hartsook in the visitor binder. The sound of the water fountains were pleasant and we enjoyed the yard as well. I will confess that we were over the moon to have a lemon tree in the backyard! Helen and Diana were terrific to work with! We planned this trip just weeks before our stay. They were extremely responsive in answering all our questions and working with us as we scrambled to get flights. We had two minor issues during our stay which they rectified immediately (when the previous renter took the remote to the garage, they got us a replacement within 1/2 day). Their willingness to help create the perfect vacation cannot be understated - thank you ladies - particularly during a holiday week! We loved working with you and will definitely be coming back.
The Hartsook home was the perfect vacation rental. My family of 6 needed a rental home close to my daughter's wedding venue and we were so fortunate to find Hartsook! Helen's home had everything when it came to meeting our needs. In fact, everyone fell in love with it and hated to leave. The rooms were large, comfy and warm - beautifully decorated. The gardens were soothing with several fountains - I wish I had more time to sit back, relax and enjoy the birds that took full advantage of the tranquil setting. The kitchen came fully stocked as did the bathrooms. We bbq'd one evening and enjoyed sitting on the lovely patio in this quiet neighborhood. (For those using a car service, note that for some reason cars pull up to home near back carport) I highly recommend this home. Hope you enjoy as much as we did. And yes, they are living happily ever after!
Our mini vacation couldn't have been better. We stayed in this home a family size if 6..we conversed over meals and relax time. This home has everything you need and could ask for. Helen was very pleasant to work with. We will stay again on our next visit to LA.
A magnificent property, which felt secluded & tucked away in a great neighborhood. Easily fit 4 adults & 3 kids w/ the sleeping arrangements & spacious layout for 4 nights. Unfortunately we did not have an opportunity to spend much time in the home due to active day plans. Yet the drive "home" to re-charge our batteries was nice. I would highly recommend this experience including the professional interaction w/ Ms. Walker & staff. They are prepared with quite a few options & suggestions for your stay. I am planning on using them at a moment's notice if needed with total confidence in another wonderful experience.
This home was a perfect place for my husband and me to entertain our LA son's family. They have a 2 1/2 year old son and a new baby just two weeks old. They came over for dinner two evenings, and our older grandson loved running around the back garden and exploring all the hidden hiding places. The baby was the centerpeice on the outside table with its large umbrella - his eyes wide open as he listened to the outside noises and felt the gentle breezes. The home was so well appointed, the beds very comfortable and it was wonderful having fresh fruit and coffee available. The description and pictures are accurate except the kitchen chairs were different. We stayed in the main house. If we are able to have our Seattle son and 2 children join us on another visit, we will defintiely try to have the house and guest house as well. It would be perfect to have togetherness with a bit of separation!
A lovely home in a quiet and safe street in Valley Village, North Hollywood. A great property for a family looking for space and comfort close to all amenities. Owner, Helen, is a wonderful host who takes pride in her property. Can highly recommend. You will not be disappointed.
Stayed here for 3 nights. Very nice house in good neighborhood. Owner had all amenities that we needed and made stay very comfortable. Fresh flowers and fruit basket appreciated.
I loved it!! Helen is amazing. The house is truly a home away from home!!!
