  • Absolutely Amazing - Can't wait to go back!

    "I was searching for a special place to take my older children for their first trip to California. I wanted something that was very nice, clean and offered lots of space for us to spread out. A must for us was also privacy and our own pool. When I came to this listing it seemed almost too perfect so I went ahead and booked. After staying in this property it was everything I had hopes for and more. The pictures don't even begin to tell the story. This home has a special place in our heart and this was a trip we will never forget mostly due to our amazing hosts who made everything so special for us from the minute we arrived. The list of unexpected surprises is far to long to list but if you are looking for something over-the-top this is the place! We just loved everything about it. The home is surrounded by a privacy wall which makes you feel completely secluded even though you are right in the middle of all the action. The outdoor pool/hot tub area was where we spent the most time. My kids didn't want to leave the back yard! The property features tropical gardens, multiple outdoor sitting areas, and designer decor inside and out which makes the entire property picture perfect. The pool house with a mini-kitchen, bathroom and pull-out sofa was more like a luxury guest house and was perfect for my college boys to have their own space. The owners thought of everything! Outdoors we had a brand new grill which we used almost every day; unlimited towels, sun tan lotions, indoor/outdoor sound system; pool toys, pool floats that don't flip and an absolutely beautiful outdoor fireplace which made this paradise even more amazing at night! The interior of the home was just as amazing. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable; the decor was perfect and the host made sure that the home was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need and we really enjoyed the steam shower in the Master bath! The home was stocked with everything. Just bring your clothes , unpack and enjoy....they have literally taken care of everything else. Thank you Robert and Victoria for everything and you will be seeing us again soon! I know there are so many more things I left out of this review but I don't want to ruin all of the surprises for your future guests! If you are looking for something unique and amazing and in perfect location, this is it! Book today and prepare to be amazed. This would be an awesome honeymoon spot if you are headed to California"

  • Great place and great host

    "We stayed at the two bedroom and one bedroom property for 3 nights. The place is super! Perfect location, close to everything you want to visit in LA: Venice Canals, Walk of Fame, Beverly Hills, Griffith Observatory, Downtown, Santa Monica Pier, Malibu and all the tourist attractions. The neighbourhood is quiet and nice. Property is very well maintained. The apartments are clean, cosy and have all the amenities you need for short or long term rental. The back yard is amazing! Jim is a very kind, discreet, helpful and generous person. We felt like we were the only people in the house. Thanks to Jim we had a wonderful vacation in LA while feeling at home. We will be more than happy to come back and rent the property again! We recommend the place and the host!"

  • Exactly As Described!

    "Check in was quick and easy! Cottage was exactly as described! Carmen was very welcoming, and gave us some places to visit that I did not know about during our stay! Awesome hostess! It was clean, and well maintained! The cottage was a little warm, it was 95-98 degrees during our stay, and no fans in the cottage! We did keep all windows open though, and it helped a little, but a fan would have been nice! The cottage location is in a residential area, and you can hear vehicles go by, but it gets quite after 9 pm (If you like to go to bed before that, buy ear-plugs and you will be fine). The first night me and my husband was there, we did hear a whole phone conversation late one night, since all windows in the cottage were opened, and you have to keep them open since the cottage has no ac or fan. The cottage is also within walking distance to the beach, about a 10 minute walk! Also, if you have your own car, Carmen does provide you with a parking space in the back of the cottage, and you can also park in the front of the house, when you find a parking spot! If you like to cook.... the cottage has dishes and pans, everything you need in the kitchen! Had a good time at this cottage, but my only suggestion would be to put up curtains in the kitchen and bathroom, even though it was a shower curtain preventing someone looking in! Other than that...I would definitely stay again!"

  • Location was perfect

    "Thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations including the few cats that stopped by for visits! Comfy beds, nice kitchen... dim lighting though, so hard to put on makeup! Location was perfect for us to get around to see our son in Venice and to enjoy Abbot Kinney, Main Street, Santa Monica, and of course the beach."
