House exceeded all expectations - WOW!!!
I rented this house from Oct 2-9 when our extended family traveled to LA for a wedding. The house exceeded ALL expectations. All of our questions were answered quickly/thoroughly/honestly throughout the entire process (prior to making reservation, prior to arrival, & after departure). Owner was very kind in allowing us to access the house prior to the regular check-in time (so we could drop off luggage while the cleaning crew was finishing up). The owner met us at the house & gave us a very thorough tour, explaining how to use the TVs/internet/ stove/everything else that we needed to know! He told us about good places to eat & cool things to check out. He answered all of our questions. We had a minor issue with one of the bathrooms during our stay & he drove up from the valley to fix the problem the same day we called him. We were definitely impressed with all aspects of our stay.
The house is SO spacious! The pictures in this listing are good, but the house is enormous! There were 8 adults in our party & we had plenty of space to spread out & ensure we didn't kill each other while staying together for an entire week. The bedrooms & bathrooms were spacious & the beds were large & comfortable. We used both the futon & the “bonus room/daybed” on the 3rd floor for our entire stay & those beds were comfortable as well. There are plenty of TVs in the house to keep everyone entertained when we weren’t out exploring. The house is decorated with great artwork & comfortable furniture. We were able to fit 2 full-size cars in the garage. The kitchen had everything that we needed & more. The outdoor Zen Garden was such a fabulous retreat; watching the birds in the fountain never got old! There are bikes/boogie boards in the garage, along with helmets & locks. We used the bikes almost every day & really enjoyed having them there. This place truly was our home away from home for the 7 days we were in the LA area.
It’s a short walk to Venice Beach & the famous Abbott-Kinney Boulevard. We walked to the Venice Canals one day & that was enjoyable too. This location is FANTASTIC! It’s not oceanfront, but it’s such a short walk (less than 5 minutes), & the amount of space that you get with this house made our decision easy. It is easy to get to/from the highway & is a short drive to LAX airport. We enjoyed everything about our stay at this house, & really appreciate the hospitality of the owner & the management (Phyllis was great). We highly recommend this house!!!
