Many celebrities live nearby and are often seen around town, at Starbucks, or at the weekly Saturday morning farmers market in Old Town Calabasas. This part of town has a flavor of the old west and hosts historical landmarks, including an original stage coach stop. and the notorious Sagebush Cantina.
Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains, nature is out the front door, with great hiking, mountain biking and motorcycle riding all around, including famous Mulholland Highway. Other local points of interest include UCLA, USC, Cal State Northridge, the Channel Islands and Catalina Island. Public golf and tennis facilities are nearby.

Das Zimmer, Bad und der Garten ist genauso wie beschrieben bzw. noch viel schöner. Wir waren LEIDER nur zwei Tage und haben uns aber wie im Paradies gefühlt. Der Garten und Pool ist einfach nur wunderschön. Joanne war beim Check In nicht da aber ihr Sohn hat uns sehr herzlich in Empfang genommen und uns alles gezeigt (Thanks Ryan!) wir haben uns von der ersten Minute an wie daheim gefühlt. Die beiden Hunde sind super freundlich und liebenswürdig. Alles ist extrem sauber, wir haben Handtücher fürs Bad,Strandtücher und sogar Stühle bekommen als wir zum Meer gefahren sind. Sollten wir irgendwann wieder zurück kommen würden wir sofort wieder bei Joanne wohnen und definitiv länger als 2Tage.
Wirklich 100% empfehlenswert!!!
We stayed with Joanne and Gary for one week, and from the minute we arrived we felt at home. They where so warm, welcomeing and nice. We used the kitchen and backyard as we pleased, which was just perfect. Both Gary and Joanne gave us lots of tips on restaurants and places to go visit while we where there.
Thank you to Joanne, Gary, Ryan and Lauren for having us stay with you. We had such a nice time and would love to come back and stay with you another time. Jonas is already missing zeek!!!:D

Couldn't have asked for anything better, the house is exactly as described. Wonderful hosts, and as I travelled alone they made me feel very welcome into their home. I spent my days in the house and found everything i needed and more was satisfied. As previously stated it simply was the perfect place for me to stay.
Gary and Joanne welcomed us warmly, made us feel well immediately. The house and the neighborhood corresponded exactly to the description
Joanne's place was great! Very tastefully decorated, nice pool, friendly dogs, great location. Would definitely stay here again!
Amazing, amazing! That was a perfect stay in California. The Family was very very nice, sympathy and the two further members of the family were unbeatable, the dogs Seek and Wirily. Very impressive Garden with enough place to relax. The relationship with the Joanne and Garry was open and caring. It was a pity after one week to leave Calabasas Oasis by the Family.
My stay with Joanne was wonderful. She is so friendly and welcoming. The room is very comfortable and equipped with everything you need. She is laid-back and lets you use the kitchen and other living areas. I felt like I was at home as I was relaxed and comfortable. The house itself is beautiful with a nice outdoor area to.
It's a 4 minute drive to The Commons in Calabasas which has great eateries and boutiques. There are great areas for hikes as well and a short drive to Malibu and to LA.
I loved my stay at Joanne's and can call her my friend.
