About the owner: My husband Mario and I like to collaborate on all our ventures! Yes, we can't be bound by the 9-5 sort of living while raising our four sons. We are both photographers and own Bella Faccia Foto,you will see some of our photography throughout our casita.We do many things aside from take pictures in the entertainment industry, for me, my most important work is empowering women through service and community. I am a Sacred Pregnancy Mentor and Mother Roaster, which means I care for new moms just after birth. My husband's new passion is as a coffee bean roaster, he has created some of the best coffee blends for Belli Fratelli Roasters,along with toss pizza at famous Vito's Pizza in West Hollywood, which is our brother's business (some of the best pizza you will have in LA). Both Mario and I take great pride in all that we do, and hope to bring you the best experience while staying in Casita Di Donato.
Why the Owner Chose Los Angeles: We lived in the front house on Reservoir for four years, during that time we transformed it into the loving home that it is now. If you want to fall in love, get married, get pregnant.... or simply relax.... this house is for you. We have not only birthed a couple of babies here, we have had three long term tenants get married and pregnant while staying in both of our homes on this property. All we can say is it has great love juju and can't wait for you to come and experience it's good vibes.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This house is very private and we love that all the windows can stay open throughout the night with no worry. The fact that there is so much to walk to in every direction is such a great feature, especially in a city as big as Los Angeles.
