  • As always it was a delight to stay in this amazing respite which I find to be a perfectly tranquil- yet convenient location. Will and Lynne are so thoughtful and considerate and are the consummate hosts. I will come back again and again whenever I am in town.

  • First airbnb experience turned out to be fabulous! Will and Lynne were so kind and helpful, and the guest room is cozy and tidy. Breadfast everyday are so delicious with homemade scone and pastry. Definitely 5 star recommendation!

  • My first airbnb experience was great thanks to Will and Lynne. The room and bath were clean, nice and very private. Will and Lynne made me feel right at home, introducing me to their three lovely dogs and making sure I knew my way around. Will had a nice breakfast, including tasty baked goods, ready any morning I wanted it - far better than upscale hotel fare at a fourth of the price. They are good people. Highly recommend.

  • Will and Lynne’s place is indeed peaceful, comfortable and beautiful – as advertised! They are good hosts and I am grateful for their dedication to rescuing dogs. However, in the interest of the safety of future guests – particularly children, I found out the hard way that you should not approach the dogs unless Will or Lynne are with you: rescue dogs are unpredictable because they have come into Will and Lynne’s care from unknown – often terrible – circumstances. So please enjoy a great stay with Will and Lynne and exercise some extra care around the dogs.

  • Great place and great hosts. We loved our stay with Will and Lynne. The room is very comfortable and one of the best beds we have ever slept in. Everything is first class. We especially loved the location in a wonderful and quiet neighborhood yet close to many restaurants and shops.

  • Will and Lynne are amazing hosts! We stayed 3 nights in their beautiful home and each morning we were greeted with a wonderful breakfast of fresh fruits, yogurt, and scones. They are a wonderful couple and were easy to get along with.

    The home accommodations were perfect - comfortable bed for two, window AC unit (hot while we were there), storage in the closets, and a nice size bathroom. Everything was clean and they included fresh towels and bathroom items like shampoo and sunscreen.

    The grounds truly make you feel like you are on vacation. While surrounded by homes, the landscaping allows for complete privacy. The swimming pool and hot tub, along with all of the outdoor seating areas, made for a great retreat from the city.

    My only regret was not being able to spend more time at the home!

  • Will and Lynne are amazing hosts! They are a wonderful couple. Their dogs are lovely and friendly too! Their son Harrison is also a good guy and a great home brewer!
    Each morning we were greeted with a delightful breakfast of fresh fruits, yogurt, and homemade pancakes and scones!!
    It was a wonderful experience for us to know Will and Lynne. They are nice people who care for you as if you were family. It was great to share stories from travels and family experiences. We do not feel as guests but we feel that we are a part of their family! It is like staying with your family while traveling.
    Their home is beautiful and it definitely exceeded our expectations! Every word is true in the description. Our room was perfect; it has a comfortable (email hidden) unit, a closet, a LCD TV, and a big private bathroom. Everything was always clean and with lovely flowers welcoming us.
    We are sure that we will be back to the Cozy Foothill house!

    Will y Lynne son unos anfitriones fantásticos! Son una pareja maravillosa. También sus perros son adorables y amigables! Su hijo Harrison es también un buen tipo y un gran cervecero casero!
    Cada mañana nos recibian con un delicioso desayuno de frutas frescas, yogur y panqueques y scones caseros!
    Fue una experiencia maravillosa conocer a Will y a Lynne. Son buenas personas que se preocupan por ti como si fueras de la familia. Fue genial compartir historias de viajes y experiencias familiares. No nos sentimos como huéspedes, sino como parte de su familia! Es como estar con tu familia durante el viaje.
    La casa es lindisima y sin duda superó nuestras expectativas! Cada palabra en la descripción es verdad. Nuestra habitación era perfecta, con una cama cómoda, un aire acondicionado, un armario, un televisor LCD y un enorme baño privado. Todo estaba siempre limpio y nos daban la bienvenida con flores encantadoras.
    Estamos seguros de que vamos a regresar a la casa de Foothill Cozy!

  • What can I say other than the fact that it was an absolute delight staying at Will and Lynne's home, and getting the chance to experience their charming hospitality!
    The room and bathroom were clean and well appointed. The outdoor area was an oasis complete with a lovely pool and hot tub with several outdoor seating areas to choose from for enjoying a glass of wine, eating, conversing, or best of all-relaxing!
    I was there with my 4 year old son and they couldn't have done anything else to be more welcoming or accomodating in terms of making his stay enjoyable as well.
    If you want a truly relaxing, clean, safe environment that is convenient to all of greater Los Angeles, then look no further, as this is the spot!
    We will definitely be back!

  • Staying at Will and Lynne’s quaint, clean, and beautiful home was our first airBnB experience and it definitely exceeded our expectations! Not only do they live in a beautiful and private neighborhood, but the accommodations were better than a hotel in our opinion. They greeted us when we got in and showed us their house and backyard. They made us breakfast each morning which including delicious homemade banana bread, fruit, and yogurt. They even sat with us while we ate and shared stories with us from their past work, travel, and family experiences. They recommended a great whole in the wall restaurant our first night which was amazing! They printed us directions for the wedding we were in town for and were even kind enough to lend my husband an under shirt because he had forgotten to pack one. Will and Lynne are one of the kindest, warmest, and most interesting couples we have met. Our only regret is that we didn’t get to spend more time visiting with them! If we are find ourselves taking a Cali vacation to the LA area, we would definitely stay at their place again!
