About The Owner

I am a 'Hooiser' born in Indiana and my wife Jacqui a Filipina raised in Manila, met each other in Los Angeles and married in 2010. We enjoy the Asian motif and warm welcoming, and calm surroundings. We renovated our middle house with this in mind. We designed the layout and functionality with the idea that one day, we will move into this cottage. And providing a space that we can call home has proven to be a winning strategy. We have created a space so comfortable that guests feel at home. The Serenity Place is your home away from home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Sawtelle

3 unique detached homes on one lot all facing the street. This oasis in the city is surrounded by lush trees. The sound of falling water flowing over rocks into the koi pond instilled a peaceful feeling. Knowing that our friends and family would also enjoy our home we invite you to visit our serene haven providing the perfect place to hang out and relax!

Amazing charming cottage

This home was a delight! Charming cottage -- peaceful, beautiful, and super clean -- with multiple outdoor areas. Private and gorgeous! Delightful hosts -- kind, friendly, always ready to help. Could not recommend more highly for short or long-term stays.
