About Susan DAYA Hamwi

I am a native to Los Angeles and bought my home about 17 years ago. I currently live in the front property and have just starting sharing my studio guest home for others to enjoy. I absolutely love my quiet and safe neighborhood as it is in the perfect location to get to many interesting places around the Los Angeles area and as well as close to the Beach. I am a family lawyer/mediator that has a local business aboard a yacht practicing conscious uncoupling/peaceful divorce resolution.

Susan DAYA Hamwi purchased this guest house in 2000

Friendly atmosphere, great location and affordable.

  • 4 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at MarVista. The location was excellent and the accommodations suited my needs. The fact that a washer and dryer were on the property was a big plus. While journaling I was able to catch the morning sun on the patio before heading out for a days worth of activities. The host and her friendly golden retriever gave it a homey atmosphere. Thank you, Susan. CWT NH

Clean, quiet, small

  • 4 of 5

Susan is a great host. She greeted us even though we arrived in the late evening. The guesthouse is clean...small, but perfect for 2 people. It doesn't have a kitchen, just small fridge, toaster oven, hot plate; dishes & flatware are provided and you place them on a tray so Susan will clean them. This worked great for breakfast and snacks (we ate out otherwise). Also provided is bottled water - a luxury with how bad LA tap water tastes! The air is slightly musty in the room, but an air purifier is provided and that seemed to make it better. Would stay here again.

Cozy, comfortable, and great location.

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I spent 8 nights in LA and it was the best vacation we’ve ever had, especially thanks to Susan and her wonderful guest house. Susan’s dog, Jessie, was also great.

We had everything we needed in Susan’s cozy and comfortable guest house with a location that made it extremely easy to get to some of our favorite spots in LA. We had no car but made it work with uber/lyft to destinations like Santa Monica, Venice Beach, and Malibu.

It rained for a couple days but we were more than happy to hang out in the guest house with all the essentials we needed. The only down side was that Jessie wasn’t allowed in the house with us.

Overall, I give it 5/5 stars and we would absolutely stay there again.

Wonderful host and location!

  • 5 of 5

Susan’s property is wonderful. Her bungalow Is in a quiet and serene location, but centrally located to many popular areas. Susan is a wonderful host who welcomed me And made me feel right at home during my stay. I often retreated to the house to escape the city traffic and noise. I Would highly recommend staying here and would stay here again myself.
