Our daughter was married at Houdini Estate in August 2016. The setting, overlooking the Hollywood Hills, sprawling gardens, historical treasures made for a most memorable celebration. "The Houdini" is ideally located, and allowed us ( and our guests) to explore Los Angeles sights, hike in the hills, swim in the pool, watch sunset on the patio, do yoga on the lawn : all in the same day. We rented estate for 3 nights and made it into combination of celebration and vacation. Lori, the Manager was a pleasure. She answered any question put to her and solved any problem that happened along the way. She was there from the moment we entered the estate to the time last guest left in the Uber.
Would we stay here again? YES! Would we recommend The Houdini for big celebrations? Absolutely! Romantic getaway? In a heartbeat!
