This stunning light-filled 3BD craftsman style home is nestled up on a small hill at the top of a quiet cul-de-sac in Toluca Lake (Studio City/North Hollywood adjacent). Just minutes away from Universal Studios and the brand new Harry Potter World!

The space

Perfect opportunity to feel right at home while you're away from yours. This charming space is warm, peaceful, quiet and safe. Ideal for a family or a romantic escape. Cook in beautiful kitchen that has 2-year-old stainless steel appliances, including a 5 burner stove. You'll find everything you need from pots and pans, silverware and plates to a juicer, blender and crockpot. Then dine at the indoor dining table for 6 or enjoy the beautiful breeze at the side porch table for 4. Hang out on the large L-shaped couch in the living room and take in the natural sunlight through the large front picturesque window - or enjoy your favorite show or movie on the flat screen TV. Enjoy evenings in the backyard around the fire pit and cook up your BBQ favorites on the grill.

When it's time to hit the town, you'll find the 101 and 134 freeways within minutes. Or stay local and hit up Ventura Boulevard's numerous shops and restaurants just around the corner in Studio City. Equally as close but in the opposite direction is the NOHO Arts District and the lovely Toluca Lake village. It's only a few blocks to Universal Studios and you can get to Disneyland in just over an hour. About 10-15 minutes to Hollywood, 20 to Beverly hills and 30-45 to Santa Monica or Malibu.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the full house and property (the separate back house doubles as boutique Pilates Studio for a few hours each day).

Great location and plenty of room in this house. There is lots to do in and outside of the house! Very charming and homey.

The host was really nice and considerate. The location was perfect for us. Plenty of space for a party of 8. The home is located in such a beautiful neighborhood. It was home away from home. We ended up driving to universal studios which was like a 3min drive. It was really nice on our back after spending all day at Universal Studios. Truly recommend it :)

Great home - we walked to Universal Studios - no problem. Lots of rooms and lots of bathrooms. We were a family of 4 adults, 2 kids and one 2 year old.

The walk to universal studios is not exactly across the street. It takes about 20 minutes to get to the gate. It's not too bad, but the listing is a little misleading. The house itself is nice and can fit 8 people. The place is private and communication with Taryn is easy and quick.

We had an excellent stay at Taryn's house and it was the perfect location for our visit to Universal Studios (just a few minutes away). Beds were comfortable, kitchen was well appointed, and we loved the outdoor table to enjoy the great weather. Taryn was very quick to respond to messages and worked with us to accommodate our travel schedule.
