Comfortable house for family stay.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property.We were a party of 3 generations, 6 adults,1child and 2 babies from the UK on holiday for 2 weeks. We all felt we had plenty of room and the beds were very comfortable. Mary kindly supplied 2 pack and play cribs.

Unfortunately there was one major problem that Mary was unable to resolve for us. The drier was not working and Mary advised us that the engineer was waiting for a part and as we were there at holiday time (Dec 26th-Jan 9th) no one knew when it would be fixed. Mary allowed us to use the drier in the guest house in the garden when no one was staying there - there were 3 lots of guests during our visit so this was not always easy to negotiate. We also had to avoid the times when the cleaners were in between guests and they were laundering the bedding. This seriously impacted on our holiday. As previously said we were a large party ( 6 adults,1 child and 2 babies) on holiday for 2 weeks and we found we had to juggle days out/visits etc around the times we could use the drier. It was such a shame.

As mentioned in other reviews the property could do with some upgrading and repairs but if it hadn't been for the constant anxiety around the drier we would have given a higher rating.

Fabulous property in West LA!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this delightful home while visiting family in Mar Vista. It was perfect! Very clean, bright, great kitchen and very well stocked with plenty of dishes. Outdoor patio is a delightful space that we really enjoyed. The Bar-B-Q seemed brand new and worked well! The neighborhood is very quiet yet friendly and all the yards and houses are well cared for. A great place in West LA! Owner and her assistant were very attentive, though we did not have any needs or issues. Would definitely stay here again.

Well located but property needs work

  • 4 of 5

This house is in a great neighborhood and mostly very quiet. We were not made aware that there was construction going on immediately next door. Luckily they were not there the entire time. There were many problems with this house. We let Mary know each time we found something broken and she came immediately or sent someone to fix. There were many things need fixing and probably needs replacing.

About Mary Steele

I helped design and remodel the entire home in 2000 for myself and my family. I created a Jack and Jill Bath for my two children and a Master Bedroom Ensuite that is separate from the rest of the house. All materials and equipment are top of the line and the home is very comfortable. My kids are grown and I now live in Marina del Rey.

Mary Steele purchased this house in 2000

Why Mary Steele chose Mar Vista

The location is excellent for visitors because it is so close to everything you would want to see in LA, yet there is plenty of street parking, and it is located in a family neighborhood with friendly neighbors and a great place to walk to Whole Foods, Starbucks, The Carving Board, Oops Sushi and many other restaurants and markets.

What makes this house unique

This home is great for small gatherings or spending time with friends or family. The outdoor patio is a comfortable outdoor space for eating, entertaining or just relaxing in the beautiful California sunshine!
