Please respect our home as if it were your own. Please keep noise levels down at night, as this is a family neighborhood.
We really enjoyed staying at Amanda & Mike's house. It was just as advertised -- beautiful tree-lined block, spacious house, wonderful neighborhood. They were extremely responsive to any questions we had. Highly recommend it.
2 words. Totally great. Amanda and Mike are genuinely sweet people who know how to rent out their property, making it perfect for others. They made the process easy and were always available to answer stupid questions. The place itself is a gem. If you haven't thought of Burbank before, do now because it was easy, convenient and neighborly in a way it is not in Hollywood etc and you simply just get more for your money. It's a big, comfortable, immaculate house well stocked with what anyone would need to cook, bath etc. Would definitely come again! Thanks Amanda and Mike for trusting us with your home.
We stayed at this house for a month and had a fantastic time. There were four of us - two parents, a 3 year old, and an au-pair, and we found the home very spacious with a beautiful back yard where our son played happily. Mike and Amanda were kind enough to leave out their kids’ toys and books too, which made our son very happy indeed!
The facilities at the house were all perfect - the air-conditioning was great, the internet was really fast, the dishwasher and laundry facilities were great. There’s no cable TV, but that wasn’t normally a problem for us - except for the one day when we wanted to watch the Emmys! - but otherwise we had loads to choose from with Netflix and Apple TV.
We also really liked the neighbourhood. We thought we might be a bit isolated in Burbank but there’s lots within walking distance. Magnolia Avenue is very close and that had a really nice bar, a great coffee shop, and a fantastic deli all within easy reach. There are 2 parks nearby, and we got great use out of the Buena Vista Library - there’s a huge section for kids, and it was also really handy as a place for me to work on my laptop. No membership is required, you can just walk in and use the facilities.
We also found Mike & Amanda to be a pleasure to deal with and very fast to reply to any of our questions - even while they were on vacation in remote Montana!
So all in all, we had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend it.
Amanda's and Mike's house was perfect for my family when they were visiting from out of town. The house was in perfect condition, and Amanda and Mike had even cleared some dresser drawers and fridge shelves for our use. They were a pleasure to interact with and very accommodating. Also, the house is great, and in a lovely neighborhood, and walking distance from lots of shops on Magnolia. Highly recommended.
My son and I took a three week visit to Mike and Amanda's beautiful home in Burbank, California. When we arrived, Mike was waiting for us; he met us there personally to give us a tour of the house. There were fresh flowers in a vase as well as a nice bottle of white wine on the kitchen table and goodies in the fridge. They left us a detailed list and map of fun, nice nearby restaurants, cafés, attractions, and hikes. It is a beautiful and comfortable home that feels like home, not just a house. The beds and couch were comfortable and there was more than ample space. The kitchen was fully stocked with appliances, plates, utensils, etc., so we could easily prepare and eat our meals. They even have a juicer and blender! There is wireless internet throughout the house and they gave us access to their office, which is situated in the home's courtyard. In the office, we could connect our computer to an external monitor and print easily. The home is located in beautiful Magnolia Park, where it is easy to walk to a restaurant or café, of which there are many nearby, for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or for a little dessert treat at night. Mike and Amanda checked in with us to make sure we were doing well and to see if we had any questions. They have a beautiful garden where we were able to pick fresh vegetables to enjoy in our meals and smoothies! Thanks so much for an awesome stay, Mike and Amanda. We look forward to staying in your home again!
Perfect location for us in Burbank and close to Hollywood, Universal etc. House was beautifully maintained & clean with good sized living area and bedrooms. Peaceful quiet street and also rear garden. Mike and Amanda were easy to contact and always helpful.
This house is in a perfect location with all the facilities needed, with a lovely garden to relax in.Nice and quiet neighborhood. The house is great for a family and it was a perfect base for exploring Los Angeles.
We did'nt actually want to leave, and Mike & Amanda are great hosts. Thanks again for letting us stay at your home. /Karlsson's
