Beautiful home. You feel like you are in a Palm Springs mid century home/vibe while being in LA metro area- do not need to go on location! The owner was super easy to work with.

Absolutely gorgeous. The location offered so many different stunning looks all in one location. It was a dream come true and the owners could not have been more accommodating and understanding. Being photographers and filmmakers themselves, It was so nice and easy working with them, they just get it. This was easily my best experience with a location (I've had many). If you dig the vibe of the photos then do not hesitate to book this place but don't tell too many people about it, let's keep it a secret :)
