“My friends and I enjoyed this home so much. It’s one thing to see pictures, but this home is an experience! Matt’s home is a tranquil and artistic vibe! We loved it and we highly recommend this home.”

“This is hands down the best Airbnb I have stayed in so far. The box house is so peaceful and has a relaxing vibe. Every angle of the house interior looks like it is straight from an Architectural Digest photo shoot. Matt and Kat were extremely helpful and accommodating. Perfect location and not too far up the hill, but still feel tucked in the hills. My favorite part was falling asleep at night listening to the waterfall feature. I would recommend this house to anyone and hope to come again.”

“The place was really beautiful and stunning. My boyfriend and I stayed here for a few days while doing business remotely and it was such a treat. The design elements, views, open living-room, sunlight, etc. There wasn’t a thing I didn’t enjoy about it. Both Kat and Matt were easy and efficient to speak with, which is always helpful. The area the house is located has minimal cell service but we used WiFi the whole time or the house phone for anything else. Wasn’t an issue at all. I would recommend anyone staying here for a tranquil Hollywood hills stay.”

“What can I say about The Box House... WOW! What an incredible and beautiful house, amazingly decorated and with such thoughtful touches, the highest quality amenities for guests to use which was so lovely. The house is exceptionally well equipped. We have stayed in many houses in The Hills but this house and the stay was by far the best. The hosting and communication was excellent. Thank you so much to Matt & Kat for providing a fantastic stay in an absolutely incredible house!”

“This place is amazing! It truly is an experience to stay here! The house is so unique with the style of the architecture, with huge windows that open up to nature, grounds with beautiful plants and fish, a large tub to soak in surrounded by birds and greenery! Sunsets overlooking an amazing view of the surrounding valley! Matt has filled the home with everything you could ever want to unwind and escape from your busy life. The home is spotless and filled with all of the amenities and has such warmth and was so homey yet elegant and simple. Our family really enjoyed our stay! Upon our arrival we were greeted by Kat and she gave us a tour of the home and showed us where everything was and how to use things. She was a great joy to meet! We will definitely be returning for another stay at the Box House! It was the highlight of our trip to LA!”

“This house is just amazing! The living room and master bedroom are surreal! It is close to everything. Very calm. The host are extremely nice!”

— Melanie, Fort Lauderdale, FL, April 2019 Guest

“We recently stayed at Matt’s place - my wife, and 18 year old daughter for her Spring Break - and had a fabulous stay. It’s a perfect blend of great location and a stylish and comfortable place to spend some time.”

— Andrew, Toronto, Canada, March 2019 Guest

“An absolutely incredible house tucked away in a quiet and beautiful location in Laurel canyon. Matt and his assistant made us feel welcome from the second we arrived. As a designer the house was an absolute feast for the eyes with its modern and sleek architecture, and yet at the same time very homely and cosy. I would come back in a heartbeat.”

— Andrée, Stockholm, Sweden, February 2019 Guest

“My family and I were lucky to find this place and I can’t say enough good things about it. The location is incredible and the house is just beautiful. Everything was thought of, down to small details to make us feel welcome and the quality of everything was amazing. Will definitely be back!!!”

— Marcela, Porto, Portugal, January 2019 Guest

“The Box House was breathtaking. Waking up each morning was akin to waking up in a movie. The views from the bedroom and sitting room over the hills were beautiful all day but especially at dawn and dusk. Matt has taken enormous trouble to create a spa experience and everything from the open layout of the home to the delicious scents felt luxurious. For anyone with an interest in art and design, Matt has thoughtfully filled the house with stunning artwork and books. If you are a gourmet cook, you will love the well-equipped kitchen with beautiful books, including those from local restaurants to inspire you. We’ve been inundated with interest in Matt’s home based on our social media posts and deservedly so.”

— Lianne, Grosse Pointe, MI, January 2019 Guest

“Matt’s home is truly a magical getaway in the hills. 360 views, floor to ceiling windows, gorgeous interiors and amazing amenities. Best Airbnb I have ever stayed in!”

— Lauren, New York, NY, December 2018 Guest

“Matt’s place is consistently excellent. Can’t beat location. Beautiful home.”

— Mitch, California, United States, December 2018 Guest

“This is an exceptional house, and the best Airbnb property I’ve ever stayed at by far. The photos are accurate though don’t fully do the property justice. The sunrise and sunsets over the canyon are spectacular, and the house has a comfort level and warmth that other architectural masterpieces lack. If you’re an aesthete, there is so much for you here — from asymmetrically-placed, oblong toilets, to thoughtful sliding doors (creating seamless indoor-outdoor living), and Aesop products aplenty. The house is full of books on LA, architecture, and photography, which we all enjoyed. The bulthaup kitchen is well-stocked with high-end appliances and easy to use. Easy check-in and Matt was a dream of a host, giving us detailed recommendations for hikes when asked. Matt was also kind enough to mail back earrings we left at the house. We were a group of six women and very comfortable in the house. The house would also work well for a couple as the master bedroom is magnificent. The two other bedrooms are smaller and cozy but perfectly comfortable. Location can’t be beat - 7 min. drive from Trader Joe’s and West Hollywood. This one is worth the hype.”

— Freya, New York, NY, December 2018 Guest

“Exquisitely luxurious. Peacefully private. Exceptionally appointed. Everything in The Box House is of the highest quality from the furniture to the hand soaps. A favorite feature is the sound of the entryway’s gurgling fountains which can be heard through the open bedroom windows. I would highly recommend The Box House and can’t wait to return myself.”

— Elizabeth, Chester, NJ, November 2018 Guest

“This house is truly heavenly and zen. Beautiful and thoughtful design in a quiet and peaceful location. The place was sparkling clean and impeccable stocked with all of the necessities & more. We had an amazing time relaxing and unwinding after our busy days exploring LA. Would love to return soon!”

— Eva, Chicago, IL, November 2018 Guest

“Matt made my LA stay one of the best trips I’ve had in the last decade of visits. Everything in his home made me feel at home. The art pieces made me feel like I was in a museum. Amenities a plenty. Amazing view. He’s the best host I’ve ever encountered. Will definitely be back.”

— Stephanie, Singapore, October 2018 Guest

“Matt is AMAZING!! I’ve stayed at St. Regis, Four Seasons, Belmond... this is JUST as good plus even better with all of the space and being able to cook in a gorgeous kitchen. Matt is A FANTASTIC host!! The home is breathtaking and Matt thinks of every detail. I could go on and on but will end by simply saying if you are considering booking this house just do it.”

— Kristen, Denver, CO, September 2018 Guest

“Wonderful place in the Hollywood Hills. It‘s definetly a must stay for every air bnb visitor in Los Angeles. We will come back as soon as possible. Ty Matt and Alexa for the wonderful stay.”

— Tim, Würzburg, Germany, August 2018 Guest
