“looking forward to going back”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2013

My partner and I booked this stay at Villa Sophia as part of our Ca experience. Living a crazy busy life in asia wanted somewhere to totally relax, Villa Sophia did that and more. The whole experience was perfect, we ended up cancelling many trips just to stay all day by the pool. The pool and Poolhouse are perfect place to hide away, you could be on and Italian Island for la seems a million miles away. It was worth travelling to the other side of the world just to experience this unique location and feel so special. Tim the host is always a moment away but never intrusive you feel totally alone and Sophia the dog is a delight visiting for her biscuits.Sorry about Scruffy Tim our hearts are with you on that one. We will be back very soon. Thanks a million R

“A little touch of paradise”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2013

Tim & Sophie are pleasant and welcoming and on and to help with any problems quickly. The house is lovely and on the hillside overlooking la. Everything you need for a fantastic break. The pool is fantastic and is possibly the most impressive part of the Villa Sophia. That being said the rest of the house is great too. Location is close to everything you might need, supermarket close by, close to the Interstate. A fair trek from the airport if youre flying in but not too far. A few small issues such as power cuts and issues with aircon breaking near the end of the stay but nothing that detracted from the overall stay Thanks Tim and we will possibly see you again sometime.

“Honeymoon Perfection”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2013

My husband and I stayed at The Villa Sophia for a week in June. It was beyond our expectations, and we couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon stay. Tim was a wonderful host and was eager to help answer any questions we had about local food and attractions! The villa is in a great location close to everything we needed. Every detail was completely thought out- from the beautiful flower petals that fall on top of the water in the hot tub to the fountain lights flickering off the leaves of the trees. The view of the city was absolutely gorgeous as well. We would stay here over a hotel any day! I can't tell you how nice it was to be away from home but still have all of the conveniences like a toaster over, a nespresso maker, candles, movies, and pretty much anything you can think of. Wonderful everything!

“Unbeatable la experience”

Reviewed 22 Jan 2013

Absolutely superb accommodation far exceeding any hotel suite you could stay in as you get all the luxury of a beautiful hotel suite with sole and exclusive use of the absolutely beautiful garden, terrace, swimming pool and spa. Truly unbeatable in la. Constantine, the owner is a real gentleman leaving you to enjoy his wonderful property as if it was your own. Great location for enjoying walks around the Griffith Park.

“Amazing! Hollywood Glamour for our Honeymoon”

Reviewed 4 Jun 2012

The Villa Sophia is amazing!!! Looks exactly like it does in the pictures - like a historic piece of Hollywood glam. The strangest thing is that the bit you stay in is a new extension - but has been done in such a fantastic way, that you can't imagine it never having been there. It's right up on top of a winding hill road - so the views are unbelievable. It's secluded but close to Los Feliz so you have the best of both worlds. The accommodation itself is gorgeous! Huge comfy bed, lovely fireplace, little kitchen but the best bit to me was the huge steam room complete with three showers! That and the beautiful pool / jacuzzi outside. The owner Tim was great - you're staying in part of his home, but it didn't feel like you were imposing as the two areas are separate-ish anyway. His dog Sophie was adorable!! There was a box of dog biscuits to give her when she came a calling...and boy did she love those biscuits!! Don't get me wrong - she wasn't there all the time, but it was really sweet in the morning - she would come down, get a biscuit and scurry off!! Adorable dog :) In short it felt a little bit like being a Hollywood star for a few days! If I could live in that pool house I would! Not sure when we will have the money to stay here again but it was a superb location for part of our honeymoon and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone! :)

“The Villa Sophia”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2012

not only is the Villa a beautiful and restful place to stay (with specatcular views); Tim, the owner, is a generous and gracious host. I will stay at the Villa every time I am in la. I must admit I have mixed feelings about reviewing the Villa, while certainly deserving of everything I have said, I do not want it booked up when I next travel to la.

“Exceptional accommodations!”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2011

In trying to decide what I liked best about Villa Sophia I realized there are too many things! Every morning I would make what turned out to be a delicious espresso (thanks to the Nespresso), step outside to see the flowers and humming birds, then take a nice steam to start my day. Having a window in the stone and tiled shower was so enjoyable; the views are spectacular! Most evenings were spent talking by the fireplace, but there isn't a need to stay in because it's easy to get just about anywhere from the villa. I also liked being able to order delivery! The pool which happens to be tiled in my favorite color(s) took my breath away, and I couldn't stop taking pictures of the outdoor table! I found the instruction sheets to be very helpful, but the tour was very much appreciated If you arrive late at night and are slightly built with a big suitcase, be prepared that there are a few steps awaiting you. These accommodations are immaculate and fully stocked with practically everything a person could need, man or woman, so I'll pack lighter next time! By the way, seeing the Griffith Observatory all lit up at night from the Villa Sophia is something not to be overlooked. I can't wait for my next stay at Villa Sophia, now one of my absolute favorite destinations!

“Luxurious place to stay! Absolutely one of a kind !!!”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2011

We had the privilege to spend the last week of our three week honeymoon at Villa Sophia and we loved it !!! The apartment, the steam bath, the location, the beautiful house, garden and the private swimming pool were all just amazing!!! Perfect ending to our perfect honeymoon, which began in Bora Bora. If you visit la I strongly recommend you to stay at Villa Sophia! The beautiful pictures on the website don't do justice to the place - it is just sooo beautiful!Thank you Tim and thank you Sophia for the wonderful stay! We really, really hope to find time to come back soon!!!

“Just amazing!”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2011

My wife, young 8 month old daughter and myself stayed at Villa Sophia in September 2011. We could not recommend it enough to anyone who is in la for a week or more (or less for that matter) as it is far more convenient and on a par price-wise than many aspects of staying in la hotels. You will never get tired of the amazing views while sitting in the hot tub, large pool, steam room, the lovely big bed and the luxurious and tasteful nature of absolutely everything. This is near perfection, all down to the smallest detail. If you are a fan of peace and tranquility, this is also the place for you - well away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood, yet perfectly placed for travelling to all parts of la, indeed California as it is just 5 mins from the highway to SF. Tim is a perfect host - always around if you need anything but not obtrusive and we had a wonderful and restful week here. Kind of like staying in a relaxed hotel where the fridge is full of your own beers and snacks and you have total privacy. This will always be our home in future whenever we visit la - would particularly recommend to European visitors not familiar with the areas as it is a great base.

“Heaven on Earth”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2011

What an incredibly peaceful and restorative stay! Not only does the Villa Sophia have a stunning view but it's location is next to Griffith Park with all the recreation and fabulous neighborhoods to explore. The light and love of this property radiates in the beauty and small details of the architecture and comfortable furnishings Our spirits so enjoyed every moment of our stay; swimming, soaking, steaming, meals around the pool and long nights under the stars. Tim and Sophia are lovely hosts and create a sacred and most private space to relax in. Bravo for a one of a kind experience!
