Our neighborhood is very quiet and our neighbors very friendly.
There is no convenient public transit. Suggest you rent a car at the airport if you don't already have one. Having a car is a must. Guests can park free of charge in our private driveway or on the street in front of the house.
No smoking inside or out (fire hazard as property adjacent to open land with very dry brush).
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. The house was fantastic, an artist's paradise. Teresa, the woman taking care of everything, was fantastic. She was very welcoming and helpful. She was always available and efficient and very kind. I would come here to stay just to relax and enjoy even if I didn't have activities in the area. Teresa left us with fresh flower arrangements, fruit juices, milk, breakfast cereals, delicious jams, English muffins, butter, fresh fruit and crackers. We didn't need a thing for breakfasts; it was all there. My adult children and two little babies enjoyed the pool and hot tub several times a day.
It was a wonderful vacation for all. It was a pleasure to enjoy the beautiful decorations, lamps, leather furniture, and everything else that artists enjoy.
I do, especially, appreciate Teresa's kindness and welcoming attitude. No one could be better.
Thanks!!! Again, I think we will take a trip down there just to enjoy the home and Teresa's hospitality.
We returned again for a third time last minute, simply because we can't resist this place! No matter what the weather, it is just the best place to spend a week in the greater LA metro area. We got plenty of use out of the hot tub in the cooler weather but also enjoyed the pool again. The house was as spotless as ever, and neighbor Teresa was as always a graceful and helpful presence just across the street.
Hi Mitch and Lieve.
We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home. Theresa welcomed us, showed us around and gave us all the information we needed. You have a great neighbour.
Your home is excellent sited for daytrips and excursions for the LA area.
This was our second stay at Mitch and Lieve's house this summer, which should tell everyone just how memorable this place is. :) This time we were there during a record breaking heatwave, and we couldn't have picked a better place to spend 5 mostly very hot days: The central air conditioning, the pool and shady patio made working from home in 100 F weather as pleasant as possible, and the house was as immaculate as when we stayed there in May. The neighbors Teresa and Chris were very nice as always. We can't wait to return!
We had a great stay at this beautiful place. Thanks Mitch and Lieve for opening up your home. It far surpassed any expectations we had (which were high!) The view is astounding and there are humming birds right next to the house most of the day. Mitch and Lieve were excellent to deal with, so accommodating and helpful, and their neighbour Teresa is an excellent hostess in their absence. Thank you again for the lovely welcome basket of goodies! This is far better than your average airbnb experience, we'd recommend it to everyone and stay here again in a shot.
It's a beautiful house in a great secluded location. Mitch and Lieve are great with communication and Teresa also walked us through thoroughly. We had a perfect stay here and even extended our original stay because of the lovely house. And Mitch is very kind to welcome us with fresh fruit, flowers and wine. Will definitely come back.
Thank you Mitch and Lieve.

Great house with a nice view. We received a welcome basket with everything we needed to get started. The house is a good distance from LA but we were there for a wedding in the suburbs.
