The Enchanted Manor

The Enchanted Manor

Perfect for a couple but can sleep more if another area is opened.

Look no further... this totally (upscale) furnished Los Angeles private estate is a perfect little paradise for one person or a couple. If more than 2 people there is an extra charge for opening another unit which is called The Secret room and the Great room. There is a secret room behind a bookcase that leads to a finished attic that can accommodate 4 more children or adventurous adults. If needed, (over 2 people) an additional cost of $100.00 per night will be charged. A charge of $50.00 per person over 4 people. The total capacity with both units is 6 people. A queen air mattress can be used if needed.
 
Feel like you're in the tropics in your own home away from home. This quiet cul-de-sac street offers a serene environment for a writer or a movie industry executive who wants a peaceful setting to come home to. It has been home to many celebrities. It's an enchanting oasis. Entertain friends around the fire pit or have your business meetings at the gazebo bar. Or just enjoy a hot jacuzzi at the end of a hard day. Private patio and BBQ area. The owner, Georgia Durante lives on the other end of the property and is available to assist you with any needs you may have to make your stay more enjoyable while giving you privacy. The Saltwater Pool is not heated in winter--can be 4 an extra cost. No need to heat during summer. The pool is like bathwater during the summer. A kitty lives in the main house but has never been in the rental unit. Highly allergic people should take note. Park directly in front of the house. Steps away from the entrance. 
 
VIRTUAL TOUR OF GROUNDS AT ENCHANTEDMANOREVENTS
 
The Secret Room:
 
If you have a larger family the secret room can be opened. Another very large living room (The Greatroom) with a stone fireplace is included in this rental, creating 1000 more sq. ft. The secret room is a finished attic behind a bookcase. You need to be old enough (or young enough) to climb a ladder. Kids and adventurous adults love this room. It has a great view of the grounds. There are 4 twin-size beds in the secret room. The Greatroom has enough space for a very comfy queen size air bed. Please note, that if renting the secret room, tenants will need to climb a ladder to access the space. The tenant is aware that this is not recommended for very young children or elderly adults. The Secret Room is ideal for children but may not be comfortable for tall adults with a low ceiling. The owner will not be responsible for any unforeseen accidents resulting from the use of the ladder.
 
The Main Unit:
 
Has a very large living room with a fireplace and two very comfortable down couches. At night it becomes the bedroom by pulling the queen size (plush Mattress) Murphy bed. It has a full kitchen with all that is needed for cooking. The breakfast room is octagon-shaped with French windows on all sides. A very bright and cheerful room that looks out to the pool and outside fireplace.
 
Romantic Poolside Dinners & Events/filming: The Enchanted Manor is magical, especially at night. The lighting on the grounds, trees, deck, and pool turns the night into a breathtaking romantic atmosphere. The pool is a saltwater pool so there are no harsh chemicals. There is also an outside shower behind the jacuzzi.
 
Vacation renters are not allowed to have parties with several people. The cost for a party is $3500 for a five-hour event for up to 50 people. If you plan to have visitors you must inform the owner before you book. During the pandemic, I am not allowing anyone on the property other than the people staying here without first getting permission. Scenes from the Lifetime Movie, 'William & Kate', and "Charles Mason", Bravo's "Shaws of Sunset" were shot here as well as many other feature films, TV shows, Music videos, and commercials.
 
The Fire Pit, Outside Fireplace, and Gazebo Bar:
 
The outside fireplace is on a private patio off the breakfast room. It's like having another living room outside with plush outdoor couches and a coffee table. This area also has a BBQ. There is another BBQ on the 3rd level of the deck next to the fire pit. Sitting around the fire pit at night with the kids roasting marsh mellows is a wonderful family experience. Many guests have had their business meetings around the gazebo bar.
 
The Play House and Tree House:
 
The playhouse is a mini version of the main house. It has 2 twin-size beds, Cable TV, a fireplace and a phone line. Children are not allowed to sleep in the playhouse for safety purposes. It is equipped with child-size furniture and toys. The children also have their own patio and patio furniture. It's like a Disneyland here for kids. The treehouse is another adventure for them to explore. The house is on a tree-lined cul de sac. It is a very secure area. The LA river is behind the house so there are no neighbors to worry about when you are enjoying the grounds. The house has an alarm and security cameras around the perimeter for more peace of mind. No parties without permission from the owner.
 
Security:
 
There are cameras on the exterior of the property. They do not record sound. Of course, there are no cameras inside the rental. I do many events here which is the reason for the security cameras. There are 2 cameras in the backyard that covers the patio, deck, and pool area. Also in the Children's Playhouse and facing the area in front of the playhouse which is where the catering would be for events. One camera faces the front entrance of the rental unit. Other cameras in the front face the street for your protection. Your safety is a priority.

Wonderful Stay

This is one of the nicest and coolest homes to stay in I have been in. Georgia was wonderful and so responsive and helpful. We enjoyed our stay so much, thank you again!

California Dreaming!

We had such a wonderful stay at The Enchanted Manor! Georgia’s home is so incredibly comfortable, and it is without a doubt the most unique place we have ever stayed! Both the adults AND the kids were so excited to see Georgia open the bookcase to the “Secret Room”, the backyard is stunning and serene complete with fire pit (we will use it next time ;), jacuzzi, and amazing Playhouse! Everywhere you turn there is another great space to sit & take in the quiet beauty. The home is close to many destinations, including Beverly Hills & Universal Studios, Santa Monica, etc… Georgia is always available via text & responds very quickly to any inquiries. She is a gracious host & only wish I got more time to get to know her better. Thank you Georgia, you’re a beautiful Soul & your home captures your amazing energy.

Beautiful property

We stayed at Georgias property over Christmas while visiting our son and we had such a great time coming back to the house after a long day of exploring LA. It has such a calm and inviting feel and the backyard is amazing!

New Year's Celebration

Georgia's property and professionalism were perfect from the start. The house was exactly like the pictures, and it was beautiful. Georgia was so nice and accommodating. My family enjoyed our New Year's Eve and New Year's Day at the Rose Bowl and Parade. She left us champagne and gave us a signed book that she had written. Great host and great house.

Magical stay

Everything is fantastic about this property, each and every detail is well thought, Georgia is a very nice and responsible host, the property is wonderful, the patio is amazing. I visited LA first time for 6 days with my family, including my two daughters, 1 and 7 years old, and stayed 3 days in this property and 4 days in a different one. We regret not staying all week in this paradise, next time will do. The location is very convenient for different activities outside, but because of the beauty of the Enchanted Manor, we spent most of our time in the property itself. The property is fully equipped to cook and have BBQs, we had 2 BBQs, enjoyed the pool and the Jacuzzi several times, Slept in the secret room with my oldest one, and played in the small house every and each day with my daughters. Without a doubt, we will repeat this stay

Magical!

My 2 girlfriends and I had the absolute best time staying here. Georgia is phenomenal in every sense. She was by far my favorite host I’ve ever stayed with. She is on top of responses and very very personal. She made us feel welcome from the second we arrived. Her home is out of a fairy tale. The backyard is something you would easily be willing to cancel plans for. We also got to meet her cats and that made us even happier because myself and my friends hadn’t seen our pets in a week. We definitely coerced them over for attention. 20/10 would stay again!

The Enchanted Manor is Paradise!

From the very first contact, Ms Georgia made the booking simple and pleasant. When you pull up to The Enchanted Manor, it is magical! The inside was like something right out of a movie! The outside made you feel like you were on a tropical oasis! Ms Georgia welcomes you with hospitality and recommendations for places to eat, sites to see and helpful hints to make your stay more pleasurable. Even with all of its beauty and allure, If you don’t get a chance or don’t take the time to sit down and listen to some of Ms Georgia stories or just get to know her, then you have truly missed the complete beauty of The Enchanted Manor! Book this place, you will not be disappointed!

Amazing Trip with an Amazing Host!!!

This was the best place we have ever stayed at!!! Georgia’s hospitality was amazing, we felt like it was our own home. She even suggested making s’mores with the kids on her open fire pit which was so fun for them!!! We will definitely be back again to stay with her and we felt like family the minute we checked in. Georgia is already missed by all of us! The grounds are wonderful! The pool and jacuzzi were stunning! It’s not goodbye, it’s till we meet again!

Fairy tale

This place was amazing. We basically spent the whole vacation there. My kids didn’t want to get out of the pool. They loved the secret room behind the book case. Georgia was very friendly and accommodating. We will have to come again.

Hidden oasis

Truly ‘enchanted’ oasis hiding in the valley. Serene outside, charming inside. The saltwater pool is divine and relaxed me so much I was too sleepy for the fire pit. But will be back with my gal pals next time to enjoy! The owner’s love for the property and her guests is apparent. The book about her life has got me reading books again. Thank you!

Magical retreat

We loved staying at this beautiful home - it is truly stunning and felt like a luxurious retreat. The building is beautiful and the gardens are just out of this world. The loveliest pool I’ve ever swim in, and the hot tub is just, wow! We got to sit around the stone fire with Georgia and get to know her. Such an interesting and special person who became a friend.

A wonderful stay in L.A.

My wife and I were looking for a relaxing private weekend at a beautiful property and we found exactly that at "The Enchanted Manor"! This property is amazing. The backyard is incredible, very large and has a resort style rock pool with an elevated spa Jacuzzi. The pool can be heated for a very reasonable fee per day. The spa can be turned on by texting the owner. It was nice and hot in 20 minutes! A lava rock fire-pit, great for having a drink at night. The backyard at night is something to see. A lot of little lights in the trees and around the backyard, multi colored lights in the pool. It really looks enchanted. The pictures in the listing are accurate.

The guest house is great for a couple. Comfortable bed, stone counter vanity bathroom, large shower. Kitchen has everything you need to make any meal and a stainless steel Bar-B-Que that we used several times.

We were looking for peace and quite. Really enjoyed laying by the pool during the day and using the spa at night.

The owner is a very friendly women who is interesting to talk to. She has written a book about her life "The Company She Keeps". My wife got the book and could not stop reading it!

The owner gave us the privacy we wanted. She lives on the property and we did not see or hear her unless we texted her. We did not have any issues, everything we used worked. She responds immediately, great communication.

We loved our time at the manor and we highly recommend this property. We are already thinking of booking another stay!

Enchanted is an understatement

Georgia has a wonderful home full of fun and character, an amazing back yard, and was a very sweet hostess. She made me and my family feel very at home. The property is really impressive and the theme of the house makes you forget you're in a big city. The pool was warm, the hot tub was perfectly hot, and we had a nice time lounging in the many shaded sitting areas. It's quiet, romantic, and a lot of fun. I'd definitely recommend it for out of town guests or a quick staycation.

BEST SMALL WEDDING VENUE EVER
This was the second wedding for both of us and we knew we wanted a more intimate affair, with our dearest friends and family surrounding us. The outdoor space is simply magnificent and perfect for post- Covid events. My husband and I felt a "high" from the beauty, love and ease in which our day/night was surrounded. Georgia was so easy to work with and so incredibly generous. Our guests were blown away and kept asking..."how did you find this place?!" THANK YOU for one of the best memories our lives, Georgia!
