A week at Casa Escalera
5/5 stars
Casa Escalera served as home base for our family for a week's worth of exploring LA's sights, attractions and beauty. Due to LA's traffic, location was a key care about for our stay and Casa Escalera was perfect for that. It was a short trip to the Hollywood sign, Griffith park and observatory, the Greek, Hollywood bowl, Hollywood blvd and Chinese Theater, Universal studios, Warner Brothers Studios, Paramount Studios, The Grove. The house itself is nestled in the Hollywood Hills in the same canyon as the Hollywood Sign. Houses in the neighborhood can be packed rather tightly together, but the extensive landscaping at the house provided isolation and a feeling of an exotic getaway. The kitchen appliances were top notch and the house was very well stocked with utensils, cookware, spices in the kitchen and toiletries in the bathrooms. They even had beach towels, a cooler and umbrella for a day at the beach. Our family really enjoyed our stay at the house and we would not hesitate to reserve it again or recommend it to others.

Amazing home!
5/5 stars
We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful home. So close to attractions yet the property is so peaceful and quiet, it’s hard to believe you’re in a huge city. The check in procedures were easy, and the home is very well stocked with everything you need for a perfect vacation!
- Amy
Truly fabulous house
5/5 stars
I stayed with my family at Casa Escalera for four nights this past February, we were looking at a few universities in the area and showing 2 of my teenagers a little bit of life in the Hollywood/Los Angeles area. The house is in a great neighborhood, located very close to hiking trails, very peaceful. The outdoor gardens and numerous courtyards (and the hummingbirds) were hard to leave each morning to set out on tours . The house itself is full of charm and is meticulously maintained (and I'm a person who literally focuses on thread count and kitchen appliances not just location when choosing a vacation house). The kitchen in particular is amazing and has views for miles with doors opening to the courtyards. I shared many photos with our friends back in NYC and will absolutely return if we are heading back to the area.

Great house!
5/5 stars
My family spent Christmas week at this lovely home in LA. We were so impressed with the house. It is exactly as it appears in the photos - lovely rooms and a great layout. Every appliance was in good working order and the house was clean. The kitchen has everything you need to create and serve a feast! Since we had amazing weather we took advantage of the patios and ate outside several times. We appreciated the Christmas decorations....poinsettias both inside and out, and the tree with lites and bulbs in front of the house. The landscaping and outdoor lightening are amazing and the fruit from the lemon and tangerine trees was delicious. There was easy parking and the neighbors were quiet but friendly. It was a pleasure to work with Lily and Daniel. We look forward to renting thru them in the future.

We're so grateful for your beautiful 5-star review Anne! It's our goal to create a special and memorable experience for all our guests who stays at our iTrip Hollywood properties. We look forward to Hosting you and your family again. Happy & Blessed New Year!

Great stay
5/5 stars
Our experience at this house was 100 percent positive. The house is beautiful and in a tremendous location. All amenities and appliances were top quality. Everything was as depicted in the photos -- no surprises. The hosts were quick to respond to any questions or requests. It is an extremely nice property in a fabulous neighborhood. Plenty of off-street parking which was a big help. All elegant and lovely. We would happily stay here again on our next trip.

We enjoyed Hosting you and your group! Thank you for this detailed and amazing review! We hope we can Host you again on your next LA visit.

Lovely Stay in the Hollywood Hills
5/5 stars
Family of 6 stayed at Casa Escalera over Thanksgiving week and everyone loved the accomodations. The house and grounds are beautiful and comfortable. Easy to walk to hikes around the resevoir and up to the Hollywood Sign. Griifith Park not far nor is access to quintessential LA sites. Highly recommend!
- Pam

Wonderful! Yes Casa Escalera will have everything you need to cook up a feast for large families. The Chef in your family will appreciate our Viking kitchen and fully stocked kitchenware - you'll have everything you need.

We had several wonderful days with friends at the Casa Escalera. Everything was perfect. Particularly enjoyed the quiet neighbourhood, fountains and gardens. Also Lily and Danny went out of their way to return an item that was left behind my mistake. Their handling of the issue was top rate. Thank you!

Glad our team found it and we were able to help you out! Thank you for your 5-star review.

Our family loved everything about the house. It was well stocked and very comfortable. Plenty of space for us all to spread out. The location of the house was perfect and there was PLENTY to do in the immediate vicinity. The information and assistance provided by iTrip and their staff was impeccable. We will definitely be looking to book with them on future trips!

Lovely Home!
5/5 stars
We really loved our stay at Casa Escalera! We stayed here with our 5 kids, and the home was large enough for all of us to have our own spaces The home was very clean, the kitchen was well stocked, and our host was very helpful throughout our stay. The house is centrally located to all the local attractions, yet it is on a safe and quiet street and neighborhood. Above all, we loved the outdoor areas which felt like Mediterranean verandas and a private oasis away from the busy city. We had a wonderful breakfast outside every morning and would often sit outside in the evenings with a drink and a book. It felt so homey and cozy that we did not want to leave! Highly recommend fto anyone looking for a quaint and quiet getaway that is still close to all the LA tourist sites.
- Laila

Wow what a beautiful and helpful review! We're so glad that you had such a memorable stay and your recommendation. We would love the opportunity to Host your family again! Please keep our contact info and book direct with us at iTrip Vacations Hollywood.

A wonderful stay at Casa Escaleras
5/5 stars
Three generations of our family stayed here and loved it. Beautiful wood floors and doors throughout the house, comfortable furnishings, top-of-the-line appliances, several outdoor gathering spots around the house, and a management company that was very responsive to questions made this the perfect home away from home. My wife called it a house of luxury and comfort and impeccably maintained beautiful gardens. The younger generation was represented by a grandson who, a few minutes after arriving, told us "This is the best house I've ever been in."
- Alan

Thank you for this beautiful 5-star review and I'm going to share your grandson's quote with our Marketing team to see if we can use your grandson's quote!! We hope you make your stay at Casa Escalera an annual trip and visit with us again - Lilly Zabat (Owner iTrip Vacations Hollywood)

Beyond my expectations
5/5 stars
The ‘casa de escaleras’ was beyond my expectations in all aspects. The pictures do not do it justice, everything is top-notch, fully operational, we have access to all amenities in the house, full kitchen, all TVs, full house music system, garage, and even a real fireplace. We were supplied with everything we needed, coffee, tea, soaps, towels, and Lilly and her partner were even waiting for us at the house to show us how everything worked, and to welcome us with a bottle of wine, a box of chocolates and a box of popcorn ! And if we had any question during our stay, we would get answers within minutes. If I could give six stars instead of five, I would !
- Alain

Abundantly grateful for such an amazing 5-star review! Such a pleasure Hosting your family....we hope we get the opportunity to Host you all again!
