Available for lease in Fall of 1016 if not sooner. Air BnB rates are higher. For most current details please visit the VRBO listing for lowest price. No refunds if you paid more because you booked with Air BnB. Note that there is no Los Angeles City transiet occupancy tax (TOT) for stays of 31 days or more. As a result, it makes more sense to book for 31 days rather than for 22 to 30 days, even if you only plan on staying for 22 days. Please check the VRBO listing for latest policy.

Quiet, safe cul-de-sac retreat!

It's also 0.7 miles from a small group of stores on Marquez Avenue and Sunset Blvd, where you will find Vitorio’s restaurant, a convenience store / liquor store, drug store, nail salon, Dominoes pizza, etc.

Things to consider....

list No view.

list Absolutely NO smoking inside.

list No large dogs allowed.

list No dogs of any size allowed from May 15 to Sep 30.

list No dogs allowed under lease agreement. *

list One small to medium-sized dog of 3 years or older is allowed if guest(s) will be staying for 31 nights or longer under under transient occupancy agreement only. There is however a mandatory $200 pet fee. This "pet fee" does not cover pet damage beyond normal pet wear and tear (Examples that are not considered normal pet wear and tear include dog ripping up part of a couch, biting up a TV remote, etc).*

list One and done dog policy: After the first guest party with a dog rents this home, no more pets will be allowed for future rentals. *

list Landlord reserves the right to not allow dogs under unusual and unforeseen circumstances that may cause excessive damage to the home or cause problems with the neighbors. Please inform landlord about any issues that may present a problem. (Examples: Some dogs druel excessively. Dogs that habitually bark a lot would create problems with the neighbors who go to bed early)

list Absolutely no cats allowed. Home owner is allergic to cats.

list No air conditioning until summer 2016. House does include 3 fans. Many homes in the Palisades have no AC because it just rarely gets very hot here like it does in the San Fernando Valley as well an inland. When it does get up into the high 80's or low 90's a fan usually suffices. During heat waves, at night the temperature will typically drop to as low as 70 degrees, so opening windows and turning on fans is almost the equivalent of "air conditioning". Also because this house is located in a small canyon, it does not get direct sunlight until the later part of the morning. August is typically the hottest month.

list People other than those in the Guest party set forth in the contract agreement may may not stay overnight in the property. Any other person in the property is the sole responsibility of Guest.

list Maximum Occupancy: The maximum number of overnight guests is limited to 5 persons. Only those persons listed in the Rental Party (in contract) may occupy the property overnight. The Guest may invite up to ten additional persons onto the property for a social gathering, but not for an overnight stay.

list NO EVENTS of any kind are allowed on the property. This is a HOUSE in a residential neighborhood and is NOT a hotel and is NOT an event center. Guest agrees to NOT have any type of event at the house, including (but not limited to) Wedding, Stag or Stagette party, bachelor party, bachelorette party, or ANY OTHER event.

list QUIET TIME: 10 PM until 9 AM is “quiet time” EVERY evening!  Guest acknowledges that one of the attractions of this home is its location on a quiet Cul-de-sac with neighbors living in close proximity who all seem to go to bed early. All noise including loud talking and music and other sounds will be moved indoors during the hours designated as “quiet time”.

list GUEST PROMISES: 1) Not to act in a loud, boisterous, unruly or thoughtless manner or disturb the rights of neighbors to peace and quiet, or allow his/her guests to do so; 2) to use the home only as a private residence, and not to engage in any activity or allow any condition that is illegal or dangerous or which would cause a cancellation, restriction, or increase in premium in renter’s insurance or allow his/her guests to do so.

list It is recommended that you have an associate (such as a realtor) come visit the house before booking.

list It is always recommended that you get renter's insurance.

list Cancellation policy: There is a $1,000 non-refundable reservation fee required to book the property, however it is credited to your rental fee if you follow through with the stay.

 

*Service dog or other medical dog is allowed according to law.


** In accordance with housing laws, continual efforts will be made to re-rent the home on short notice. Then if successful you will be refunded based on pro-rated re-rent. Keep in mind that it may be difficult to re-rent the home 60 days out. Few families are looking for a vacation house on such short notice. This is why it is critical that you be sure that you want to rent before you put down a deposit to rent. Of course if you wait, someone else may reserve this home.

 

Why is there a cancellation policy? Most vacationers book months in advance. The window of opportunity to book is short. If you cancel with only a few months left until the Summer season, this can often translate to lost booking time. Also I will be booking accommodations of my own, which may not be cancelable or I will incur a penalty by canceling.
