We had a fabulous time at Bryan and Paul's house. To quote my 9 year old, the house was 5 star all the way! Bryan and Paul's attention to detail is impressive from the travel plugs to the personalised welcome card to the toys for our two children. The place looks just like the pictures but what you can't see from the listing is the friendliness and kindness of the hosts. Can't recommend it & them enough!
Wow, amazing place. The house itself is gorgeous, practical and modern, the garden is a little Oasis and the view overlooking Hollywood is stunning. Paul and Bryan thought of everything, went above and beyond to make us comfortable while giving us privacy. Love that the place came with a laundry room. Definitely a steal for the price. Couldn't think of a better place to stay in LA.
My wife and I had spent four days two years ago at Bryan and Paul's house and had a fantastic time there, so it was understandable that we booked the place again this year for a return to Los Angeles with our son. I can talk about the view, the art on the walls, the neighborhood, but allow me to write about our first evening at the house.
Bryan and Paul had a independent Spanish movie company shoot a movie at their house and had the entire crew there that evening having a wrap party. My son, wife and I were invited. I am your very average American guy, I don't get invited to too many parties, and would never have imagined that I would be invited to a wrap party for any movie. But it happened and it was unforgettable. Bryan and Paul graciously made sure to make us feel comfortable at the party and the movie people were just what you would expect, beautiful and talented.
There are not many houses that would ever be used as a set for an independent movie, when you see this place you know exactly why it was picked. I will never forget that night.
Brian, Thanks so much for your great review and for coming back with your family for a second stay. It was our pleasure having you here and we are glad you enjoyed the evening of the event. We hope we see you for a third round. All the very best to you and your wonderful family!
Paul & Bryan sono stati fantastici. La casa é meravigliosa. Ricca di dettagli e particolari che fanno capire quanto alta sia la sensibilità per questo piccolo tesoro arroccato in una delle colline di Silver Lake. L'alloggio oltre ad essere particolarmente curato, é arricchito da uno splendido giardino. Dalle 18.00 ogni sera, tempo permettendo, dal terrazzo si assiste alla meraviglia del tramonto. Il sole va a scomparire oltre le colline di Hollywood. Il Parcheggio é facile e sicuro come lo é tutto il quartiere e come pare tutta la città di Los Angeles.
"Ceck in, Ceck out rapidissimi... si nota l'esperienza di due viaggiatori che sanno di cosa e di come ha bisogno l'ospite.
Questa era la mia terza volta a LA, a distanza di quindici anni tutti i quartieri sono stati ripuliti compresa down town. L'America è fantastica ed é ancora vivo il sapore del sogno americano, unica cosa che a noi italiani manca.
Ho portato i miei bimbi agli Universal Studios, anche questi sono cambiati rispetto all'ora (in peggio) sarà stato il stato il mese, sarà stata una coincidenza ma 100 dollari spesi per stare in coda ovunque non valgono la pena. Particolarmente se le code arrivano a toccare le 2 ore d'attesa.
Ritornando alla casa... 10 e lode per Paul, Bryan e il loro splendido rifugio.
Consigliato a tutti.
Great host and nice place, highly recommended.
Staying at Paul And Bryan ’s wonderful house is being a great experience for all of us.
They are the perfect host and their care and attention had made a pleasure our time.
The written directions, the details and the warm welcome and goodbye was heart filling.
The city views are amazing, the neighborhood is quiet, friendly and one of the top places to be in the world. Cafes, walks, book stores and very cultural.
We are so thankful, and grateful and without doubt recommend this beautiful place and their amazing host.
Viva LA, Viva Paul and Bryan!!
