We are walking distance to Calabasas and Hidden Hills. These neighboring areas are prestigious and home to Justin Bieber, Howie Mandel, Britney Spears, Will and Jada Smith, JLo, etc. You can often run into local celebrities at our local Common's Shopping Plaza!
Your kids will love the sparkling pool and local walks at the lake! There is fantastic area shopping with three local malls and numerous fine restaurants.
Please see my attached guidebook. Our location is within 30 to 60 minutes to all the major Los Angeles sights and the LAX airport.
Enjoy the serenity.
The Woodland West neighborhood is tucked behind exclusive gated celebrity homes and in the top school district in Los Angeles. It is an interesting blend of cultures and nationalities with a good deal of intelligensia due to local industries and colleges. You can find any type of restaurant or boutique imaginable, along with a wide array of top services. The local natural beauty is apparent in our beaches, islands, and many parks. Music and film is a way of life here. A lot of westside residents eventually find their way to our area due to the great schools and low key living.
There is a local bus stop 2 blocks away. The Blueline is in the city center connecting to Burbank Airport and Universal Studios. From LAX, you can take the shuttle for $25 advance booking or $50 airport service and the Flyaway bus for $8. .
Other Things to Note
Tennis courts, Olympic pool, yoga, spinning and lake are 1 mile away at the Calabasas Pool and Tennis Center.

Sarah's home was perfect for our family vacation. Wonderful area, convenient and quaint shopping, easy 101 access. Her home was very comfortable, spacious, and clean. She included all amenities and had loads of towels! (Thank you Sarah!) Everything we needed. We traveled with our three kids (16, 14, 9). My sister and her husband also rented the attached studio suite.
The pool photo doesn't do the backyard justice! Beautiful, peaceful space. Highly recommend! We'll definitely return again.
Sarahs house was wonderful! Really enjoyed all the amenities and comfortable places to sleep. This house is a must for people traveling to the area to stay at!
Sarah's home is absolutely beautiful! It's close to the expressway, supermarket, and great places to eat on Ventura. Our group had a total of seven people; 3 couples and one single person and we all had more than enough room in the house. The pool was our favorite part of the house and we spent most of our days there. My personal favorite was the bathroom in the Maui suite- AMAZING! Sarah was very responsive and helpful with places we should visit nearby - we had a great stay!
Thanks for your positive review! I am glad the pool was able to get the attention it so deserves! Most guests are too busy at local beaches, Hollywood, shopping, etc. I could tell you guys ate well and enjoyed the barbecue too! Thanks again for selecting our place for your summer stay!
Not recommended until a thorough cleaning is done. For 375$ a night we would have expected a better maintained house. The pictures are clearly out dated. No doubt the house was great years back. Now it has aged and though it is very roomy, with comfortable beds and great linens, lots of light, nice outdoor tables and chairs, great pool, and is in a quiet area, it really needs to be thoroughly cleaned.
We had some serious cleaning issues on arrival: appalling smell of cats urine in the kitchen, fridge/freezer were dirty and full of outdated goods, as were the greasy cabinets which really need serious cleaning (dead cockroach in a drawer). Some pots and pans need to be replaced. Not enough silver wares or glasses to have 2 meals in a row. The furnace was great.
Heavily stained carpet in the living room (so different from the picture!).
Troubled water in the pool on arrival. The pump had been out of service for 5 days. Sweeper out of order. Scooper ruined. Broken table and chaise longue. Filthy door mats.
Great barbecue… but no propane left.
Main cleaning issues were addressed by the owner who was out of town, She offered a one night refund plus cleaning fees.
But we spent too much time emailing her and welcoming the different cleaning teams, all we wanted was relaxing a week around the pool.
Be aware: Very noisy pool pump which runs 8 hours a day. No blinds in master bedroom.
Once the issues addressed, we had a good time around the pool.
It is true, this guest arrived at a terrible time. We discovered that the previous guest held a family party at the home when I was away to celebrated the World Cup and also had many unauthorized guests! I learned that the home was dirty and my normal cleaning lady could not complete her tasks sufficiently and the pool was overworked by the use of the ac nonstop by the prior stay. I offered to refund the Boisson family for the remainer of their stay and suggested a nearby hotel. However, they decided to stay and bear through the carpet cleaning, extra house cleaning and pool pump repair. It was unfortunate for them but I was did suggest they transfer to a more suitable location nearby. Since this time, I have a family who has arrived from Milan and received keys from me this weekend who are more than thrilled with all the great features that this house has including over a quarter acre lot with a 20x40 pool, new bathrooms, new wood flooring, new ac and furnace, new living furnishings and linens in a very quiet neighborhood. I think the lesson here is when you arrive, if a place does not meet your expectations, please reselect another property that is more in keeping to your needs.

About the Host, Sarah
I am an empty nester and and have lived in this area since college and raised my family here. My lifestyle is healthy and I enjoy all the local outdoor activities. My interests are design, architecture, art, gardening, fine dining and travel. I enjoy quiet, low key and peaceful individuals who are calming to be around. I value tolerance, humility and acceptance and try to extend the same grace to others. I travel frequently for business and enjoy meeting interesting people. I love tropical environments and exotic foods.
