Holly was amazing! Very responsive and even let us use her space while she was out of town. The space itself was perfect for our party. Much bigger than expected and plenty of parking. My guests and I had a blast. Would definitely recommend!
We chose Holly & Bode's magical tipi for our Nomadic School of Wonder lunar new year ceremony and celebration in February. It was the perfect setting for our gathering of forty people. We felt like we were miles away in nature yet we were right off Venice Blvd in a backyard that was transformed into the set of a Wes Anderson film. Our hosts were gracious, accommodating, talented, helpful and relaxed. We look forward to more gatherings in the big magic tipi this year!
Very nice people to work with. Location was perfect for our production. One thing to point out is if shooting higher framerates for video the string lights in the backyard will cause flickering so prepare accordingly. If kept at 23.976 fps you will be fine.
Holly was awesome and so was the location. Holly was communicative and understanding and flexible to work with. Location had so many areas to shoot as well as props that we were able to utilize in our shoot. Definitely recommend 100%!!
