A letter of Reference:
Honestly, I can only give John McCormack's house the highest
recommendation. It is a beautiful, spacious, airy, sun-filled,
elegantly-designed-yet-totally-comfortable house with a lovely garden
and charm galore. The architectural work of art--the master bedroom
and bath--is absolutely luxurious. There's a soaking (Jacuzzi) tub
and a large shower that also has a steam room setting. The gas
fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom add so much cozy
feeling to the place, which, in February, could be a plus, since at
that time of year in Southern California, the night air at the beach
tends to get pretty chilly.

John is a gracious host/landlord, who checks in with his tenants
regularly (eager to answer questions about the house or accommodate
any needs--within reason--as they may come up). He is quite
friendly, but respectful of one's privacy, too. He's thoughtfully
stocked his kitchen well (we like to cook/entertain--so that's been a
wonderful bonus), and there are plenty of towels and linens for
myself, my husband, my 9-year-old son, and my father-in-law who is
staying with us for a two month visit, which is the reason for our
having rented this lovely place for a short-term stay.

I don't know how familiar you are with the Ocean Park neighborhood,
but the house's proximity to Main Street can't be beat. I roll out
of bed for a 6am yoga class (at a terrific studio btw, Yoga works) a
half a block away, the hip/organic people-watching hot spot, Urth
Cafe is literally on the corner, a raw food restaurant and Peet's
Coffee (so much better than Starbuck's!) are all within steps of the
house, as well as lots of little shops, a bodega-like grocery store,
a tiny little gelato place AND a Ben and Jerry's. There's a neighborhood farmer's market every Sunday morning, which is also a happenin' event, as well as the historic little library nearby, which is sweet and terribly convenient. There is a $2000 Security Deposit
