Gracious Stay
We have been very fortunate in the past 20 years or more to stay in nicely appointed and tasteful hotels and homes in Asia and Australia , in Europe most situated in locations of intrigue etc ranging in all price levels. Sometimes these accommodations were provided graciously as the centerpieces for small prestigious Science meetings where i tagged along. But I can easily say that this accommodation provided by Bill and Robert at very reasonable rates gave an experience that matched if not outdid the others . It could be I was simply reaching for the true to heart ,ornate historic hollywood hills experience to share with my family (mostly 3rd child graduating from a CA college that weekend). But in every respect it satisfied . What you learn about Hollywood and the neighborhood's history alone via the hosts and about the powerful and peaceful canyon life made for a far better experience than what any hotel can provide . It was fully complete not only with anything you might need to throw and brilliant dinner party but with hikes very near to front door where breathtaking LA views are found. The solid ,old stone pool was very refreshing after hikes and at all times of day with cliffs and canyons and nature in your eyes view as if this house is the only one around because of situation and wise landscaping. . The unique and very comfortable well lived on antique furnishings are easy to melt into and appreciate . Topping all with wondrous sounds of birds and breezes we had three nights of what felt like a high quality vacation during a time that easily could have been an ordinary college graduation weekend. Thank you Bill and Robert for providing your home and for the very affordable experience. JKLB
