Such a lovely little getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city! We can't wait to make a return trip and take in all of Laurel Canyon. The casita was perfect, had all the amenities anyone could need. The owner was out-of-this-world helpful, from lending us beach towels from her own private stash, to recommending the PERFECT place for a romantic dinner (Pace, down the hill by the Canyon Country Market). She was quick to respond to anything we needed - which took every bit of stress out of the trip. The street up to the casita is STEEP and full of hairpin turns. While it's easy to find, you do need to be a bit of a confident driver. The description of the location of the property (from the owner) is spot on - when she says there's a parking space next to the steps, it is there! The amenities are just as described - coffee maker, fridge/freezer combo, microwave, toaster. There's even a hairdryer and little shampoo/conditioner bottles - just like a hotel! Being from the Midwest, I am used to being able to walk most places, but Laurel Canyon is NOT made for walking. There is plenty of hiking available (you have to drive to get to the starting point), but be prepared to drive/Uber everywhere from the casita. There is no "oops, I forgot to pick up milk - I'll just walk down to the market and pick some up". If you need a big shopping trip, there are options minutes away in Hollywood. But if you need to just pick up an item or two, do NOT miss Canyon Country Market. Simply an adorable corner store - with such an incredible vibe. They have great coffee, served out front in the morning - enjoy it while watching the world pass by. And if you love Italian food - do NOT miss out on Pace. Right around the building from the Market - downstairs in what feels like a little cellar. The atmosphere is magical and the food was delish! Many thanks to the owner for such a great experience. We WILL be back - hopefully sooner, rather than later!
