A very warm welcome by the property manager, John, who could not have been more helpful. The house was exactly as advertised, amenities abound, and the attention to detail was superb.
Glad to have the security of an alarm to put on at night and while away from the house. Remember to turn it off before you open the door to the terrace from the master bedroom (sorry John)!
The beach is mere minutes away on foot, the communal pool area is very well equipped and was barely used by the neighboring guests for the duration of our stay.
Spoiled for choice as far as restaurants go on LBK as well as further down the coast at St Armands Circle. Mar Vista in particular is excellent both in terms of service, and food quality and is the nearest restaurant to the house (we walked one night but wouldn't recommend it as there are no street lights so had to use a flashlight app on our phones to find our way home...).
Blue Dolphin cafe is a must for breakfast even though they no longer have their famous Red Savina hot sauce available.
Our stay was exactly what we wanted - a week of pure relaxation. We'll definitely be back next year.
