“Our new American home”

  • 5 of 5

The guesthouse is just like it is presented on the photographs, beautifully furnished, very cosy, very clean, everything you need is there. The location is perfect, close to the beach, close to the shops and restaurants, also in a very safe neighbourhood.

A beautiful tropical garden with a big pool ….. what do you need more ?

The welcome was very warm and we immediately felt like home.

Gabriela and Julia, her lovely daughter, are really the best. Always there to answer every question you have or help you out …. They are awsome !

We had an amazing time and we can’t wait to go back !

Good job Gabriela and Julia !!!

Great neighborhood, sweet home and lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Despite never getting to meet Gabriela, I had a lovely stay at her guesthouse. Her daughter was very helpful when I needed, which was not often. The Guesthouse was very sweet and the setup with her house and pool made for a lovely setting. The wisteria were in bloom when I was there so it was very beautiful. I enjoyed her neighborhood and it was very easy to get to shopping, etc. I loved Superba Food and Bread right around the corner! It was a great 4 days in Venice Beach and want to thank Gabriela and Julia for making is special. I would recommend their Guesthouse!

Perfect Location :)

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect stay! A big part was the apartment, Gabriella and the neighborhood. It´s a nice little street close to all relevant shops. Abbot Kinney and Venice beach are close by and reachable by foot or bike. We enjoyed the stay so much, that we change the travel plans and extended the stay in Gabriella´s apartment as much as it was possible! We will definitely come back!!! :)

A beautiful modern apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful little apartment was just what me and my partner needed after travelling California. When we arrive Gabriella made us feel right at home and showed us around. The pictures don't do it justice, this is a stunning apartment! It is a well-maintained, modern apartment within a beautiful garden. It has a good sized outside seating area next to the pool, which is very beautiful, especially in the evenings when you can put on the twinkly lights that hang under the plant canopy.

Inside Gabriella had left us a selection of bits and bobs to use, such as salt, pepper, tea and coffee which was a lovely touch. The grocery store was a short drive/walk away and it was close to the beach and high street. Parking was fine, it was a nice safe little neighbourhood and on most days we parked right outside her house. Any questions we had Gabriella was more than willing to answer and help us out.

Thank you so much for your hospitality, it was lovely staying with you.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay in Los Angeles!

Great location,bikes were a big plus!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, the location is great, a convenient five minute bike ride to the beach or Abbot Kinney. Yet on a quiet residential block, we used the pool and ate al fresco beside it.

Thank you!!

Lovely small and cosy guest house with pool

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cosy and very clean guest house. We could use the bikes on site and had therefor no problem with the distance to Venice Beach and Santa Monica Pier. We loved it.
