Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is very clean, updated, and cozy. It really is like a home away from home. There's a nice yard here that's very open with comfortable lounge chairs & patio furniture. Close to the marina and shops. Great place for a family. Kitchen has high-end appliances, including washer & dryer. Kitchen had everything we needed to make home cooked meals. Everything worked perfectly. Close to a very nice park. If you need to hit the beaches or L.A. tourist traps, you have to rent a car. Franco and Iris were great hosts. They were warm & inviting. The place has everything you need for a comfortable stay and a safe neighborhood feel. Would stay there again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place to stay. Very clean, decorated nicely, a nice and private back yard to relax with a hot tub. They really have thought of everything. This property is the back house of the owners house but you would never know it with the privacy and quiet.

Here is a cool story. We found a wallet on the floor under our bed the morning we left. I left the wallet on the kitchen counter and was going to text the owner once I got home to tell him about it. When we landed I had a voicemail before I could text him. He thought that it could be our wallet and offered to bring the wallet to the airport so we could fly out as there was an ID in the wallet. That really impressed me. We would definitely stay here again!

Awesome Stay in Marina Del Rey

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 spent 10 wonderful days in an amazing home in Marina Del Rey. The home was very well decorated and very comfortable. The location is quite convenient to all the major freeways. We have been vacationing in LA for the past several years and typically stay in Santa Monica and Venice Beach areas so we were very familiar with the area. It was very easy and convenient to visit those areas from Franco's immaculate home. The house has everything a family would need from central AC, TVs in each room, internet, full eat in kitchen with new appliances and well stocked pantry with silverware, glassware and chinaware. We cooked on several nights and everything was perfect. The rooms were very spacious and Franco provided us with a jacuzzi, barbecue grill, heat lamps and fire pit. We didn't use the grill or the jacuzzi but the lamps and fire pit came in handy on the cool Marina Del Rey nights. Nothing like unwinding after a long day with a glass of wine and sitting by the fire pit. Street parking is available right in front of the house. We kept the same spot for 10 days and we were constantly out and about. Nice homes on Rubens Ave but it can get a little sketchy around the block on Panama. Location was excellent and plenty of food shopping ( hit several Trader Joes, Gelson's and Ralphs ). I would highly recommend Franco's house to family and friends and we will most certainly be back.

Thank you Franco !

Very nice house

  • 4 of 5

A very nice house, next to the landlord, but with an independant door and garden.

Very quiet, comfortable and clean.

I would recommand it.

I have put 4 stars and not 5, only for the price. If not, it deserve a 5 stars.

Aloha! We had a great stay. we were quite comfortable as a family of four in this lovely home. Location was perfect and quite convenient. Franco and family were great, always there to help us out. The Jacuzzi was a wonderful addition and all the facilities, TV, and kitchen equipment were in excellent order. Encourage you to stay and enjoy!
