This was the perfect place to stay for our trip to universal and warner brother studios, we felt just at home in the comfortable cottage and walking down the street and having so many restaurant options made finding food painless! I hope to find another reason to stay at this place another time

Our stay here the weekend of 3/11 to 3/13 was great. This guest house is located in a very nice, quiet neighborhood, with private access from the street. s known that there will be two guests. Other recommendations: maybe add a small shelf or table in the bathroom as there is little counter space. A full length mirror would also be a nice plus! Perhaps a new shower head :] Other than that, Jim was very easy to get a hold of, and he even let us check just our bags in earlier than check in. Thanks so much for a lovely stay!

It was the perfect place for work and vacation. A wonderful location for a single or couple stay, close to the original Big Boy and several other iconic downtown Burbank restaurants.

Jim's place is nothing short of exceptional. Everything we wanted and more! It is well located, so pretty and we felt really comfortable. I had my doubts that it could be as perfect as it seems but it really is! Thank you

Wow it's SO quiet at night at Jim's cottage, which faces a side street. The bed is very comfortable with an excellent mattress and I slept great. The shower head had good water pressure and there was plenty of hot water. My only issue was the wifi didn't always work, but they reset it when I texted them. Maybe it was the rainy, windy weather. There's a small portable heater which I turned on at night to keep me warm. Works great. There's an AC as well. The microwave, minifrig and Keurig coffee machine were so handy. I'd love to stay at this Airbnb again.

Response from Jim:
Glad you enjoyed the stay Melissa! Yes, the internet was an issue during the storm. We had Charter Comm. come out to look at it since (as we were having the same problems!) and they said all seemed fine now. Thanks for the heads up! Hope to see you again at the cottage!
