We rented a Howard Ends for our Christmas holiday. When we got into our rented house, we were pleasantly surprised and abnormally pleased. The house stands on a very quiet street with a more than sufficient parking in front of the house. Inside the house was everything perfect. Everywhere very clean, I would say to abnormally clean. The kitchen has all what you need. Comfortable seating in the living area was entertainment by television. All beds were clean and we had a very good and comfortable sleep. The house has two very nice and clean bathrooms. One bathroom has a shower, and the second has a bath, which allows comfortable relaxing in the bath and also suitable for small children. Ross was waiting for us and explained everything we needed and answered all our questions. I have to say there is nothing negative about this property!!! Ross, I wish you an early move into your beautiful house and once again thank you !!! We will be back soon !!!
My family and I had a great time during our visit to Howards End. It is in a very convenient location to the Marina, beaches and restaurants of Marina Del Ray and Venice. Street parking near the house was available thru-out our stay. The kitchen was very well stocked with all the necessary utensils to cook our Christmas dinner. The bedrooms were spacious and the mattresses were very comfortable. If I could think of something small to recommend to the owners would be to find a little more comfy sitting arrangements in the living room and new caulking in the bathroom shower. Otherwise a perfect little retreat. Love it!
My family and I stayed here when we needed to come to LA for a family event. We wanted to be on the west side - and the location here worked well for us. The house was neat and clean - everything was as advertised. It really suited us perfectly!
Best of all, the owner Ross was very attentive and helpful. We needed to adjust the crib to fit our toddler (lowering the mattress so he couldn't hop out) and Ross came over to help us with that. He also responded immediately to a small question about the bathtub - and made sure everything was working well. I really appreciate the effort he made to make sure we were happy and comfortable.
Ross was definitely the most helpful person I have worked with since I've started using VRBO! He went out of his way to make sure everything went perfectly. The home is lovely, it was cozy and nicely decorated. The pictures don't do justice to the lush landscaping. We had a dinner under the stars on the picnic table out back, surrounded by a beautiful yard. Our guests were quite impressed. The sleeping accommodations were very comfortable as well and the kitchen well stocked. Would love to stay here again!
We have stayed at many VRBO homes over the years. This one was by far the best. The location is perfect and we felt right at home. As everyone says, Ross the owner, is a delight. But most importantly, he takes the care of his home very seriously. The place was spotless. It is the cleanest, most well stocked home we have ever stayed in. At the end of our 8 night stay, our teenage son asked if we could move in permanently! We can't wait to come back.
We had decided to have a last massive family trip ( 5 of us ) as our daughters are now reaching the age where parents are excess baggage!!!!. So we decided on a triangular trip starting and finishing in Las Vegas. After the first 5 days of constant travelling and long road journeys we reached Howard street and arrived outside what can only be described as a Hansel and gretel type house ( for a 6 night stay ). It really is a postcard picture and very pretty ( my girls view ). When you first see the house surrounded by the other imposing properties around it you think " No way it is too small for us" Do Not be put off by the initial impression of size. Once inside it works, it is perfect. The open plan kitchen, 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms were perfect for us and it really was a home from home. Ross is superb and very knowledgeable of the surrounding area. You can walk to Venice Beach in 20 mins and there is a superb Italian restaurant just round the corner on Washington Pl. You have great access to the Freeway which will take you Wilshere Blvd and Beverly Hills etc.. As a family we all agreed it was a fantastic place and were sad to leave the relaxed way of spending your holiday rather than looking at your suitcase in the corner of a hotel room everyday. Would stay again 100%.
