Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I was in town to visit a new grandbaby. I needed a place we could comfortably gather, and a place to stay connected. This location fit the bill. The place is spacious and open, with charm.

We enjoyed our time, somehow the days did not seem long enough.

We had a couple questions, which were promptly answered. The pool was great.

Parking is on street...which is no problem. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. I unloaded in the driveway (cart available) and moved. Easy...

I can only hope that it is available on my next trip.

Thanks for your willingness to share your "casita".

Beautiful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Tricia's gorgeous little casita. Myself, my boyfriend and two children visited Memorial Day weekend and fell in love with everything this rental has to offer. We liked it so much we stayed one extra day just to enjoy the pool and jacuzzi and have some family time. Tricia is so nice and inviting, the home is decorated beautifully with gorgeous landscaping everywhere you look. It's super private and separated from the front house. There's a full kitchen, washer and dryer, porch to hangout, the jacuzzi and pool are well maintained and clean. The location was perfect for us too, we avoided so much traffic and all the major LA spots like downtown, Santa Monica, Hollywood, the Valley and East LA are all about 20 - 30 min car rides away. We'll absolutely be back ❤
