PROPERTY Description

Look no further... this totally (upscale) furnished Los Angeles private estate-guest house is a perfect little paradise for one person, a couple or family. There is a secret room behind a bookcase that leads to a finished attic that can accommodate 4 children or adventurous adults if needed for an additional cost $100.00 per nt.

Feel like you're in the tropics in your own home away from home. This quiet cul-de-sac street offers a serene environment for a writer or a movie industry executive who wants a peaceful setting to come home to. It has been home to many celebrities. It's an enchanting oasis. Entertain friends around the fire pit or have your business meetings at the gazebo bar. Or just enjoy a hot jacuzzi at the end of a hard day. Private patio and BBQ area. The owner, Georgia Durante lives on the property and is available to assist you with any needs you may have to make your stay more enjoyable while giving you privacy. Pool is not heated in winter--can be 4 extra cost. A kitty lives in the main house, but has never been in the rental unit. Highly allergic people should take note.


The Secret Room:

If you have a larger family the secret room can be opened for an additional $100.00 per night. Another very large living room with a stone fireplace is included in this rental, creating 1000 more sq. ft. The secret room is a finished attic behind a bookcase. You need to be old enough (or young enough) to climb a ladder. Kids and adventurous adults love this room. It has a great view of the grounds. There are 4 twin size beds in the secret room and room enough for a queen size air bed. Please note, if renting the secret room, tenants will need to climb a ladder to access the space. Tenant is aware that this is not recommended for very young children or elderly adults. The Secret Room is ideal for children but may not be comfortable for tall adults with the low ceiling. Owner will not be responsible for any unforeseen accidents resulting from the use of the ladder.

The Guest House:

Has a very large living room with a fireplace and two very comfortable down couches. At night it becomes the bedroom by pulling the queen size (plush Mattress) Murphy bed. It has a full kitchen with all that is needed for cooking. The breakfast room is octagon shaped with French windows on all sides. Very bright and cheerful room which looks out to the pool and outside fireplace.

Romantic Poolside Dinners & Events/filming: The Enchanted Manor is magical, especially at night. The lighting on the grounds, trees, deck and pool turns the night into a very romantic atmosphere. Celebrity Chef, Kurt (personal chef to Ronald Reagan)is available to cook for private dinners. Massage therapist also available.

Vacation renters are not allowed to have parties with several people. The cost for a party is $2500.00 for a five hour event for up to 50 people. Scenes from the Lifetime Movie, 'William & Kate' were shot here as well as other feature films and commercials.

The Fire Pit, Outside Fireplace and Gazebo Bar:

The outside fireplace is on a private patio off the breakfast room. It's like having anther living room outside With plush out door couches and coffee table. This area also has a BBQ. There is another BBQ on the 3rd level of the deck next to the fire pit. Sitting around the fire pit at night with the kids roasting marsh mellows is a wonderful family experience. Having business meetings around the gazebo bar.

The Play House and Tree House:

The play house is a mini version of the main house. It has 2 twin size beds, Cable TV, fireplace and a phone line. It is equipped with child size furniture and toys. The children also have their own patio and patio furniture. It's like a Disneyland here for kids. The tree house is another adventure for them to explore.

The house has an alarm and security cameras around the perimiter for more peace of mind. No parties without permission from the owner.

Absolute heaven! An enchanted oasis!
This is an amazing property! It was wonderful from minute one until we had to leave (very reluctantly) Georgia the owner, who lives next door, was so inviting and gracious. You have all the privacy you could wish for, but she is always a text or call away to fulfill any desire you have! She has created a whimsical oasis, that makes you feel like you are willingly stranded on a deserted island! The pictures don't do this property justice. Everything you could need, want, or wish for is there. The bed is great which is always important ;) I will be back with the family next time! This would be the perfect romantic spot for two; enjoying the waterfall jacuzzi under the stars, or enjoy the tree house, pool and custom playhouse (amazing) with the whole family! Georgia, thank you for everything, you made our short vacation so memerable. Warmly, Jared and Mistee

Enchanted Seclusion
We loved the Enchanted Manor! It was secluded even though it was in a neighborhood. Georgia did not leave any stones unturned in her planning and decor. She was always gracious and accommodating whenever the need arose. We swam, enjoyed the outdoor fireplace and the fire pit, grilled and ate at the tiki bar and relaxed by the pool. The jacuzzi with a waterfall feature was wonderful for therapy and good conversation. There was only one bathroom but we adjusted. Good sleeping for 2 but extra had to sleep on couches or in secret attic room which had pull-down steps and slanted ceilings. Nice attic room with 2 twin beds but not easy to access, especially if you would want your luggage to join you in that room. If you have young children, the playhouse is adorable! I was thrilled with this "find" and would recommend it to all!

Beautiful, peaceful, convenient location
From the moment I sent Georgia an inquiry regarding this property, her response was swift and she answered all of my questions and concerns. She greeted my family with warmth and made contacting her during our stay easy and convenient. The property has all of the amenities for a family to enjoy, pool, Jacuzzi, barbecue grill, fire pit and a lovely seating area with a fireplace where my family enjoyed playing games. I would definitely stay here again. The memories my family shared which including cake with Georgia are priceless. Thank you.

Amazing place! Amazing Host!
This home was absolutely paradise! Georgia was an amazingly wonderful host. Visited with my father, my partner and two grandchildren. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Cannot wait to return.

Fun place to visit
It was a very unique property. It would be a great place for a private party with beautiful outdoor area with lots of seating space. We made s'mores one night in the firepit which were delicious. The hot tub was great. Wish could have turned it on ourselves rather than asking Georgia to warm it up. We didn't get much use of the pool because it was not heated. Good location near most LA attractions. Georgia was a great hostess and is a published author with great stories to tell.

A True Tropical Paradise, in the LA suburbs!
Whatever can we add to the previous reviews!? This is the MOST AMAZING place, just as magical as the photos! We are DEFINITELY coming back, and hopefully soon ;-) Georgia is absolutely the best hostess. The two of us had all the privacy we wanted, but a wonderful new friend for a dinner out, and for drinks around the firepit the last night. We felt like we'd have to be carried out, kicking and screaming. The rest of the world just disappears, whether one is in the Jacuzzi-with-waterfall, sitting around a fire, reading on a lounge chair, or inside looking out. The Breakfast Room, with walls of windows overlooking the grounds, became a peaceful, sunny office for the bit of work we couldn't postpone. Next time, we hope to do some entertaining here, both for pleasure and business. The queen Murphy bed was like sleeping on a cloud, and that was a real surprise, as we weren't quite sure about how comfortable a Murphy bed would be. The location was also a surprise: Just a very short - and scenic - ride through Coldwater Canyon or Laurel Canyon roads, to Beverly Hills or Hollywood, and the rest of LA Metro. (We arrived using two of the many highways nearby, and we never used them again.) This was a RELAXING vacation, and we really didn't want to leave to go anywhere else, and much of the time, we didn't. The setting is such that there was absolutely no noise from anyone else, and no street noise. It felt like being on a little island, yet everything is right nearby (Whole Foods, Starbucks, and other similar minutes away.) Everything was clean and in excellent condition - again, just like the photos. "What you see IS what you get!" And with a gracious hostess if needed. Georgia has created a true paradise, and we hope we can stay longer next time. And as a REAL surprise, we were in the Jacuzzi, and looked up and --- there were dozens of GRAPEFRUITS hanging from the tree above us. If THAT doesn't make one feel like being on a tropical island...!?! With Georgia's permission, we later plucked one, and had the juiciest grapefruit ever.
