About Karen Zethraeus

We got into the vacation rental business quite by accident! Built a guest home to accomodate our ever growing family and then it became a vacation rental! We are busy with our anti aging business, family and golf. We love meeting people from all over the world.

Karen Zethraeus purchased this studio in 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome! It was exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our 45yr anniversary! We only live one hour south in Playa del Rey, but this provided the R&R we were looking for from the busy LA life!, Thanks for a memorable anniversary & will share with others who might be looking for the same. -

Beautiful Escape

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this property. I cannot even begin to describe how amazing the view is, but the pictures are very good representation. We loved the bungalow, it was just right for the two of us and it was so nice to come back from a busy day exploring to the amazing views. You do park in a parking area and walk up to the bungalow, but it is a very short walk and it was not a problem at all for us. During our stay we traveled to LA, San Juan Capistrano, Thousand Oaks, Camarillo, Ventura, and Santa Monica. It was centrally located to most of these areas. There is a refrigerator and kitchenette and it is just a perfect size for two! We wanted to thank Karen and her husband. They gave us plenty of privacy and were so helpful whenever we needed it. I highly recommend and cannot wait to return!

Absolutely wonderful studio!

  • 5 of 5

This little gem of a studio has a central quiet location in a very beautiful neighborhood. Everything about the property was very well cared for. The studio is tucked away from any noise in a cute courtyard. Inside it was immaculately appointed with lots and lots of light. The bedding and towels were A1 quality.

You can tell the owners are very proud of their property by the details. Karen was so welcoming and laid out for us lemon poundcake mini muffins, bottled water, fresh flowers and the morning newspaper. Absolutely loved it and will stay again! Thank you Karen!

The bungalow was perfect!! The views are breath taking! We started our vacation in Santa Monica... Stayed at the Lowes.. It was nice .. But nothing compared to our last four days at this bungalow..Convenient to all the beautiful beaches! Driving through the Canyon was just WoW! Also, the little grocery store down Pacific cost had great ready made meals.. If you don't want to cook.. ;)

I could live here...

  • 5 of 5

...because it is clean, quiet, convenient and has STUNNING (as described) ocean views; all the reviews are accurate. A personal favorite was the 12 ft vaulted ceiling with skylight, because it meant morning sunlight without [arguing with my husband about] keeping the blinds o

pen! In daylight hours that front window is mesmerizing....So all in all a GEM, with only these caveats: would be nice to have a luggage/garden cart for transporting up/down driveway when loading/unloading; we are healthy/fit but on a long road trip so had to make several trips back/forth each time. Also IF I were staying for longer stretches of time I'd prefer a firmer mattress. Thanks so much for sharing this little slice of paradise!
