Our 5 week trip to the US culminated with a week in Mitch and Lieve's home in Thousand Oaks and I can safely say we left the best until last! It was a privilege to be allowed to stay in this beautiful home and we will treasure the memories we made. With two children (8 & 13), many hours were spent enjoying the pool, the jacuzzi, the hummingbirds, the sunsets and the stars. The photo's do not do it justice at all but then it is even harder to put into words. Location - perfect! 50 min from Hollywood & Beverley Hills, 30 min from Malibu and 50 min from Santa Barbara and lovely shops and restaurants just 10 minutes down the road. Pool - stunning! House - amazing! Theresa - simply lovely. Although Mitch and Lieve spend time at the house, they have managed to make it feel as though it's the home of the guest with everything you can possibly need. Thank you both so much and we hope to be able to return soon. Nikki, Terry, Elissa & Annabel
My husband, myself, and our 18 month old son stayed at Mitch and Lieve's home for 4 days. It was absolutely wonder and we wished we had booked for longer. Everything was clean and prepared for our stay. It's clear that the hosts put a lot of thought into what guests will need (pool towels, breakfast for the next day, fresh jam). Teresa was an incredible host while Mitch and Lieve were gone, responsive and gracious. What was most special was how the home was prepared for our 18 month old son. There was a high chair and pack and play read when we arrived and Teresa had made such an effort to child proof the place, including moving certain things and putting a child lock on certain kitchen cabinets. There was also a safety gate for the pool. A wonderful trip and we will certainly be back!
we can only recommend this house. It is very clean, everything is like in the description. The view is indescribably beautiful. The neighbors are very friendly and very helpful. we will be back definitely.
Mitch and Lieve's house was wonderfull! In the fridge there was everything for our first breakfast, and there was a "Wellcome"-basket with bread and fruits. The view from the pool was amazing! Theresa was a very nice host, allways available and very considerate!
We enjoyed our stay very much!
Thank you Mitch, Lieve and Theresa for the very nice time!
We hebben een geweldige week gehad in het huis van Mitch en Lieve: comfortabel huis en heerlijk zwembad. Zeer goed uitgeruste keuken met BBQ buiten waardoor we alle dagen heerlijk buiten hebben gegeten.
Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home. The location was perfect, wildlife was amazing and the views were stunning. The house was very comfortable with everything we needed and more. Theresa aided us throughout our stay and made us feel very welcome. We would love to return at some time in the future to explore the area more.
Great experience! The house is beautiful and perfect for enjoying the LA area. Wish we were still there.
