Lovely start to our vacation

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely spot to explore venice/santa monica. I see previous posts complaining its not near the beach. I think Diana's description and the map clearly show the location! The room was cozy, clean and quiet. What a great way to start our vacation. There are bikes for borrowing, or rent a bird scooter to zip around town. I would definitely recommend this spot. There is now A/C, so nights are cool! The only reason i didnt give it 5 stars is the outside patio needs some TLC. But that would not deter me from coming again!

Beautiful Studio

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our anniversary and as a stopover on our way up to the Pacific Coast Highway. This studio was just what we needed - the inside is just like the pictures, probably better.

It’s a huge, open room with lots of light, open ceilings, nice bathroom, comfortable bed, spotless interiors, full kitchen with a table, tons of storage and so adorable. We didn’t use the kitchen but it looks like an awesome place to cook meals.

Why I give it a four: no AC and the outside could use a good cleaning.

The biggest worry I have is about the lack of AC. I know LA has mostly perfect weather and I’m all for sleeping with the windows open. The trouble here is that the only real ventilation comes through exterior doors, and warms up quickly with them closed. We weren’t comfortable about sleeping with them open.

Luckily, we had gorgeous weather and used the fans provided so it wasn’t a problem for us. It does cool off very quickly with them open. I mention it because I think it would definitely be a problem during a heatwave.

The property is fenced-in, private and quiet. The outdoor area is perfectly sized and furnished. I sat out there with my book for a bit and it was comfy and peaceful... just kinda messy. I’d love to see this space again after the outside gets a good cleaning and a slight updating/fixing of the fence, gardening, etc.

Overall this studio is perfect for a couple. Especially on a romantic vacation. I’d love to come back and spend a whole week here.

Diana was a pleasure to work with and her mom was a very sweet lady, greeting us from the front door while we took in our luggage through the gorgeous front garden. It’s such a nice way to be greeted home. Thanks Diana and Lila!

We’ll be back!

I would rate this a 10 star if that were an option

  • 5 of 5

WOW! This place was super cute! Looks exactly like the pictures, very clean and fantastic communication with Diana. She even personalized our stay which was super sweet and totally surprising. Street parking was easy and you could easily ride one of the Bird scooters to and from the place. Without a doubt I would stay here again and have recommended it to all my friends. I even shared photos on my FB in which all my friends fell in love with it too. 10 stars! xoxo

Great wedding anniversary getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using a VRBO service and I was very happy with my first experience. Diana was able to answer all of my questions. My wife and I stayed here for four nights and Diana was so friendly and welcoming when I talked to her. The studio had everything we needed and we just bought stuff for breakfast and used the small kitchen which was very convenient. I would definitely stay there again!
