I hosted a party at the house and everything went smoothly and all my friends had an amazing time. Especially for the affordable price, the house's accessories such as the pool/jacuzzi, lights, and procedures such as the shuttling helped make the night a huge success and an amazing experience for us all. Extra services such as music and help cleaning up in the morning was extremely convenient after the night was over, and overall I definitely recommend this house as well as working with the owner who went out of his way to make sure that everything would go smoothly and accommodate all our specific needs.

We rented this amazing home for my birthday. There was plenty of room to accommodate almost 100 guests for my birthday party. The ballroom was large enough to have a DJ and many dancers. Also, the bar, kitchen/lounge, and pool table were a big hit with the party guests.
The next day I had a backyard BBQ with family. We enjoyed laying out in the backyard, using the pool, jacuzzi, grotto, and outdoor daybeds. The kids had fun on the trampoline. The babies had plenty of room to crawl and explore.
The master suite was huge. It had a comfy bed, large walk-in closet, resort quality spa bathroom, and a balcony with an amazing view.
My guests liked their own bedroom suites with private baths.
Mike, the owner, was amazing. He made sure the rental process was easy and the place was clean and ready for my stay.
Would definitely recommend this place to others and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the house for a little over 1 week. When we arrived we couldn't believe how big the house was. The pictures don't do it justice. I was there with My family of 4 and then 11 Exchange students that ranged in age from 13 to 17. We had a great time and there was plenty of room for everyone. We did have to text to get the Jacuzzi and pool stuff on but it was very easy and I totally understand wanting to save energy by not having it running 24/7.

Stayed here for the weekend and had a great time. House was spotless, everything worked, location was beautiful. I had 12 people in my party and Mike gave us plenty of sleeping options other than the 4 beds in each of the bedrooms. We were blown away by the furniture and decor each room had to offer. The owner gave us our space while at the same time helped us out in a timely fashion whenever we needed. Myself and the rest of my group all thought the price was worth it and would easily stay here again.

The owner was very helpful, easy to get in touch with, very responsive, and very accommodating. The place is huge and could easily host huge parties. The owner sometimes stays in the guest house but you'd never know he's there - it's actually pretty cool because he's available in a pinch if you need him. Responds via text too. The pool and jacuzzi are cool but the kitchen is probably the best feature. There's also a ton of outdoor space that we didn't even get to use. Definitely a great place to stay. Not a lot of interesting activities nearby, kind of a suburban area, but the house is on the top of a big hill and feels remote, and has plenty of room for activities so you don't really need to leave.

We had our entire (huge) family here together for Christmas, with lots of babies as young as 2 months and a 71 year old grandpa. This was the perfect relaxing and festive atmosphere for our first full reunion in more than a decade. The 360 views were amazing, plenty of parking, wonderful lawn and convenient location. The kitchen/den was the center of activity. Grandma was very happy. The kids lived on the netted trampoline (built into a cliff - so no climbing up and down and what a view!) with some dips in the pool and hot tub. The pool/hot tub lights and outdoor speakers made for colorful, fun-filled evenings. Everyone enjoyed the pinball machines and a few pool sharks showed the rest of us how it's done. The outdoor sauna was a funky, cool little heated pod. Plenty of couch space and gorgeous bathrooms. Though not enough private bedrooms for each family, there are plenty of rooms. Michael was very accommodating providing extra mattresses and the parking lot held our cars and an RV. Gorgeous sunrise every morning and quick to Costco, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods or Malibu!!! Many of us dubbed it "the best christmas ever." We'll be back!

I rented Michael's house this past weekend and it was a great experience. The house has a cool vibe, lots of space, and welcoming environment. It was really easy to coordinate the planning for renting the property. I'd definitely recommend this location for a party or event or just a getaway.

My husband and I rented this house for our entire bridal party to share while they were in town for our wedding last week and it was awesome. It was clean and spacious and it slept 14 people comfortably. The amenities were just as described and the owner was available for any/all questions during our stay. Everyone had an excellent time and we would definitely rent the property again. We've actually gotten requests from our friends to rent the house on a yearly basis for our anniversary!

I celebrated my 30th birthday at this house for an entire weekend. Had several friends fly in and stay for the weekend and threw a large party with additional local guests one of the nights. The house is perfect for this type of thing and the owner was helpful with all questions. He was actually right next door in the guesthouse the whole weekend. When you want to turn on the pool/hot tub/water fall you have to text the owner and he does it remotely. The driveway only allows for about 10 cars so if you have additional guests coming to the house you must shuttle people from the side streets about a block or so away. The owner does not want people even walking down the streets at night because the neighbors will complain. Also I was told by the owner the day before my arrival that a film crew would still be filming for a few hours on the property when I get there, however they were out of the way in the guest house and were gone by the evening. I was a little annoyed by the last minute surprise but it didn't end up being an issue.

You can't go wrong renting Frank, Clint and Rogers old digs. The property is fantastic, everything I dreamed about for my engagement party. I booked the house for four nights, I had a bachelorette party on Thursday night and than the engagement party on Saturday the perfect amount of time to celebrate with friends and family in comfortable surroundings. Everything you could need is close by restaurants, stores, theaters. However the property is so great we only left to go for groceries. The pool, waterfall, and hot tub are breath taking. The kitchen to die for, the rooms and bathrooms fantastic. Michael the owner is terrific met all our needs and than some. Always pleasant never hard to find, he made Franks place feel like our place. Could not have been more pleased I say book it now

I had my 30th birthday party here, and it turned out to be a great choice. There is a ton of space, several bedrooms and bathrooms, a game room, a bar area, a huge kitchen and living area, and lots of space outdoors. It's removed from neighbors so a little noise isn't a big deal. There's also a lot of room for parking. Mic was really nice and very responsive by text if I had any questions. This is a great place to have a small party or gathering/event. Would definitely come back!

We recently had a birthday party and everyone enjoyed the stay very much. The kids loved loved loved the pool. Everyone was talking about the party for about a week. Michael was wonderful, he responded quickly if we had any questions. I would absolutely stay again here, maybe not for a party (too much work) but just to enjoy the beautiful home . Thank You Michael!!

What a fantastic stay! The Mountain views are amazing and the Grotto with waterfall, pool and hot tub were an entertainer's dream. There was also a huge yard too play frisbee, day beds to lounge and a trampoline built into the edge of a cliff. The luxurious house came with a professional cook's kitchen, too many Living Parlors to count, including one big enough to dance in, a Bar room with Pinball machines and 4 Bedrooms. The Master was huge with gorgeous views and two balconies!What a great place to entertain with a family or for a big celebration. Thanks Mike!!!

This place is something else,
The house was beautiful, the Owner was the chillest, the house had a View of the City line at every angle, the Jacuzzi was very hot, back yard is big enough for easy 350 people, and don't get me started on the interior of the pad.
Overall, the stay was relaxing and no issues with neighbors or Cops.
If you're looking for a place to host a party look no further,
The Owner was Cool and I would definitely recommend this Venue to anyone.

Was here to host my 30th birthday party. This house is a great house to do any kind of activities. Very spacious house, backyard, great pool and jacuzzi, everything is just perfect!!
I'm very glad to be able to do my party here, all my guest had great fun at the house.
The owner Michael is very friendly and make us feel welcome. He provide us with towel for people that would like to use the pool or jacuzzi. Blanket and pillow in case some of the guest would want to stay overnight. Very thoughtful. Thank you Michael.
Will definitely recommend this place to my friends.
I had a great time here with a large group of friends for the weekend. The property owner was extremely responsive and was supportive of tailoring the experience to my needs. For example, I couldn't figure out how to work the stereo (my own fault) and the host responded to my texts until past midnight.
The house itself is very large and has a really nice backyard with expansive views. Overall, it's a quintessential "Los angeles" experience and I would recommend it specifically for large groups or reunions.

I chose this location to host a gathering of all my closest friends for my 30th birthday. My guests and I could not have been more happy with how everything turned out. We were able to cook all our meals in the huge, well stocked kitchen, the backyard patio was great for lounging, and the pool and hot tub were huge hits. The house is in a great location to pop down to the market or anything else you'd need. The owner Mike was very flexible with our needs and was extremely reachable for our questions throughout the weekend. This mansion was a showstopper and definitely made a memorable weekend for my friends and I.

Me and my wife came down from Colorado to visit friends and family and we wanted to plan something different so when I came across this home I couldn't pass it up although I was originally looking for a beach house I was definitely satisfied. We had a total of 17 people stay there and everyone had a great time. I would recommend this to anyone. We are all in our 20's and it suited us great. Would definitely come back again.

Staying at this Woodland Hills mansion was definitely the best choice we made, when visiting Los angeles. Its so private, and the house is so spacious, that we felt so relaxed and at ease while staying here. There are so many bathrooms and rooms, that your whole party can spread out and not be all in each others way.
The view is absolutely to die for you. You can see the whole San Fernando Valley and even beyond. The house is perched on top of a hill, and is like its own hideaway! With a private coded gate and long driveway, you feel like a celebrity, driving towards the house.
The kitchen is a true chefs kitchen! It has everything a restaurant would have, even restaurant quality and style fridge and freezer. And a huge bar counter. Where we would pop open a few bottles of wine and have long chats while preparing dinner.
The pool area, we nicknamed the mini playboy mansion, has a mini grotto area, and a huge lawn. We would sit out by the pool area and eat our dinner's watching the lights of the city.
The master room is the whole top floor. It is humongous. It has a shower that could probably fit like 10 people in it, and a balcony that overlooks the front of the house. We would often have our coffee on this balcony in the morning and watch the sun peeking through the tree's.
There is so much parking, which was great when we invited friends we knew in town to come over and visit.
Mike, the property owner, was just amazing throughout our whole stay and even after our stay! He made sure upon arrival that everything was clean and spotless. We had towels, and blankets, and pillows, everything. He even left a bunch of welcome home goodies in the kitchen for us. Chocolates and wine and fruit! Even after our stay he made sure we enjoyed ourselves and everything went well and we were happy.
And we are! Very happy! Definitely will stay again. We already booked a week in March and april!

I recently rented this property for a 24 hour stay to celebrate my 40th birthday with my closest friends. The property is perfect for entertaining, with a bar area, a huge dancing/hanging out room, a room with a billiards table, a great shaded patio, huge kitchen, a hot tub that fits 10 people comfortably, a huge pool & and a waterfall to make daytime frolicking even more fun and exotic. The bedrooms were perfect for my guests and the master bedroom is as awesome as it looks in the photos.
We brought catering to the house and never left once we checked in, we had everything we needed once got there.
The overall effect of the house reminds you why so many legendary names are attached to the name of this house!
Property owner was great to work with, answered all my questions and accommodated our many requests. Highly recommended!

I rented this house for my sons 10th birthday party and had some family from out of town staying here as well for a few days. The house was amazing, super clean and organized, the setup for the party was very easy and the owner provided his handyman to help us out with power, catering etc. what a fun, easy experience. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a luxury vacation home, winter or summer. And I cant forget about the jacuzzi at night, so relaxing!!!

We had a great stay at this property and Michael made the process very easy for us. He was flexible throughout and made us feel welcome. The property is really incredible, spacious, and in a great location of the valley. The backyard has a beautiful view and not to mention an awesome pool and hot tub. This is a no brainer if you are looking to house a big group of people in a safe, private location.

I stayed at this house for a 3 night vacation, and it was the best vacation I have had! The house is beautiful, and he keeps it incredibly clean. The bedding is so soft and comfortable, it really helped me sleep and remain relaxed the whole time. The views from the house are amazing, whether it's from the backyard, bedrooms, or kitchen there is a guaranteed beautiful view of the Valley from every window. I can not wait to book another stay at this house!
