“Our new American home”

  • 5 of 5

The guesthouse is just like it is presented on the photographs, beautifully furnished, very cosy, very clean, everything you need is there. The location is perfect, close to the beach, close to the shops and restaurants, also in a very safe neighbourhood.

A beautiful tropical garden with a big pool ….. what do you need more ?

The welcome was very warm and we immediately felt like home.

Gabriela and Julia, her lovely daughter, are really the best. Always there to answer every question you have or help you out …. They are awsome !

We had an amazing time and we can’t wait to go back !

Good job Gabriela and Julia !!!

Pretty sweet location in Venice

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Apartment! The location is great and the bike are decent. Enough space for three people and the bathroom is very sweet as well as the rest of the apartment. Did not use the pool tho and had the entire backyard for us.

Great house but lack of privacy

  • 3 of 5

The guesthouse was amazing and beautiful with all the plants around it. The porch was a good place to just be outside and enjoy the beautiful California weather. The inside of the house is beautiful too! Gabriela, the property manager, does an amazing job keeping the place up to date and cozy. She provides everything to make this stay a great one. Although, I felt like she was watching us all the time and making sure we weren't breaking any of her "rules". Even though I had rented out the pool house we were very limited on what we could do. I felt we couldn't have music on and when my cousins came over to do a barbecue we felt like we couldn't talk or laugh or even drink. She has some bikes that she provides to go to Venice, but the chains are rusty and at any moment they are going to break in which you have to pay for the whole bike. Overall, there are some benefits in staying in somebody's backyard but the lack of privacy is something to be concerned. This was my first time renting someone's house and I will definitely find out more information on the next time because honestly, the lack of privacy is something to be concerned about.

Owner's Response: dear Jason, I am so sorry you were not able to read my house description before renting my guesthouse. I put an enormous amount of effort in making everyone welcome ad feeling at home as you can see with the innumerable happy guest that wrote fabulous comments for the last 5 years. Yes, I live in the front house with my daughter as described and I ask people to respectful of the neighbors as anyone would. This is not a party house, but a nice quiet place for a couple or a small family to spend a peaceful vacation. Many thanks for letting me know the bike chains were rusty, it has been raining a lot and although they are covered the moisture have affected them, I had my maintenance person take care of it. I would have liked it ,if you had told me, so we could have fixed this right away.

Well-located cozy, private guesthouse

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, safe, guesthouse in busy Venice, hosted by charming Gabriela. Beautiful courtyard to enjoy morning coffee and paper! Very comfortable bed and shower. A special treat is the office space separated from the bedroom, allowing one spouse to take calls while the other spouse sleeps. Although there is a small kitchen, I would agree with Gabriela that there are so many terrific choices for dining out or bringing prepared food in, that well-intended cooks should opt to vacation too!

Walking distance to groceries, restaurants, coffee houses, shopping. Free parking in front of house. For bikers and runners, the place is 1.5 miles from the Venice Beach entry to the 22-mile Strand.

  • 4 of 5

From our first greeting to our sad goodbye(for now) our host Gabriela was wonderful as was her guesthouse. The neighborhood was safe and had many offerings for dining, shopping and entertainment only a short walk away. We always felt safe and were surrounded by a many other vacationers in this eclectically appealing neighborhood

Great neighborhood, sweet home and lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Despite never getting to meet Gabriela, I had a lovely stay at her guesthouse. Her daughter was very helpful when I needed, which was not often. The Guesthouse was very sweet and the setup with her house and pool made for a lovely setting. The wisteria were in bloom when I was there so it was very beautiful. I enjoyed her neighborhood and it was very easy to get to shopping, etc. I loved Superba Food and Bread right around the corner! It was a great 4 days in Venice Beach and want to thank Gabriela and Julia for making is special. I would recommend their Guesthouse!
