Our home

Our home is a spacious 2, 800 square foot 2-story suburban home in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. The home features a heated swimming pool and spa, four large bedrooms upstairs, charming rose garden and fish pond with fountain, and a large family room with fireplace. There is a separate formal room for quiet reading with piano and its own fireplace. All modern appliances are present including washer/dryer, large refrigerator, microwave and conventional ovens, central heating and air conditioning. The kitchen has been recently completly remodeled and is lovely and spacious.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of five that loves to travel and play together. Father (Mark) is Manager of Training for SunPower, a major solar electric (photovoltaic solar cells) manufacturer. (In fact, the house boasts its own solar electric rooftop system that supplies the house with 30% of its electricity and has battery backup in case of utility power failure!) Mother (Eliza) is a Special Education Teacher for the LA school system, specializing in working with the deaf. Kyle (27 years) loves bouldering and is a recent graduate from UC Santa Barbara. James (23 years) is our engineer and computer expert college student. And Morgan (18 years) has just left for college. All the children have celebrated either their 1st or 2nd birthdays overseas (!), and we have exchanged a house a few years ago with a teacher in southern France. That was a great success, and we look forward to respecting your home and customs while enjoying a vacation in your town. We love exploring villages and towns compared to staying in big cities, and have the best vacations when we vagabond with a vague itinerary and discover out of the way places. We do have pets: 3 very friendly medium-size dogs and 1 cat. We could kennel the dogs if you wished.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The neighborhood is beautifully maintained, and our near cul-de-sac street situation has almost no traffic, yet you are only 1 minute from the #118 Freeway, connecting you with the entire freeway network of Southern California. We are within easy reach of all major entertainment centers of Los Angeles, including Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Magic Mountain, Universal Studios Hollywood, the New Getty Museum, as well as all the other points of interest in Los Angeles. A couple hour drive will put you in the San Diego area, and even into northern Mexico. Beaches abound, with delightful tours of nearby Catalina Island available, or you can venture into our mountains or desert areas, all within one day.
