“Home Away from Home”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Loved our visit to LA area this summer! Of all the properties we considered we chose Frank’s getaway because he earned our trust right from the start with his warm and genuine demeanor.
The house was much larger than we actually needed but since we felt so comfortable renting from Frank it was a no brainer where we would stay for our 9 day vacation. The property offered all we were looking for… central location to all local attractions, large treed private property, lovely pool, quiet, serene area where the birds serenade you all day long not to mention how safe we felt there. The house had all we needed to make us feel at home. We even had the pleasure of meeting Frank in person who was as heartwarming as we expected he would be and very attentive to the odd minor housekeeping issues that arose. It was a memorable vacation and largely due to the fond memories we took away from Frank’s Rustic Getaway. I hope you get the opportunity to experience it too !

I am so glad the house worked out perfectly for you. It certainly worked out perfectly for me as I now have some new friends.
It is a wonderful bonus of this business that every once in awhile you meet someone who you can share morning coffee, a little evening vino and a lot of laughs. I am lucky to have had the experience.
Come back and visit real soon.
Take good care

Hi Randi
I am so glad the house worked out for you and your family. I enjoyed chatting with both your Mom and Dad and enjoyed watching the kids have such a good in the pool.
To me this business is also about relationships so It's always a bonus to meet wonderful people.
Thank you for your very kind review. That means a lot to me.
Please have your family come back soon.
Take good care

“This Is the LA I Remember From My Youth”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I am technically not an Angeleno. I was supposed to grow up there, and much of my family is from and still there. For that reason, I've gone back and forth to LA, and lived there for short periods on and off since 1955 until today. Much of today's LA is something that only vaguely reminds me of what I knew as a kid. Frank's house is the kind of country-ish place that very much evokes the past I fondly remember. Lots of wood, dark leather furniture, exposed ceiling beams, an average swimming pool, even a brick oven. Best of all, Frank's house is on a little trafficked street of relatively unassuming but spacious houses that begs to be strolled up and down on a warm LA day/night. Good for me, but perhaps not perfect for all is the fact that the house is located in Van Nuys, a 7 minute walk from LA Fitness and a 5 minute drive to my daughter and soon to be son-in-law's house. Is the place perfect? Not for the person who seeks the modern LA of today/tomorrow , or the person who wants to be right in the middle of the glitzy side of LA, but for someone who wants to get a taste of a very real side of LA, then I very highly recommend Frank's place.
