This was my fourth time staying here!!! I’ve come on a girls weekend getaway, I’ve come with my husband and the kids and I’ve also come with just my husband. This is the perfect place for any occasion!! I come to LA regularly and I won’t even make the trip if I can’t stay here. Thanks for ALWAYS welcoming us Estela!!

Your relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay in LA. My daughter and I were visiting LA to tour colleges and see some LA sites (Universal Studios, Hollywood, Santa Monica Pier, Downtown museums, etc). Everyday I was in the pool and spa, morning and night. We had the back yard and pool completely to ourselves (though, if you are visiting on a romantic trip, keep your swimsuits on ... house rules). It was a wonderful way to start and end everyday, and made the whole mood of the trip very leisurely.

The studio itself is very clean and nicely appointed. The main bed is very comfortable, and I slept great! The sofa bed is what you'd expect for a sofa bed, but my daughter did not complain one bit. The layout of the space is a little unusual. Probably the most noticeable thing is the low ceilings and the very small bathroom. Estela clearly points that out in her listing, so she isn't trying to hide that fact at all. It really did not bother my daughter and I, but if you are a tall person, this might be troublesome.

A very nice about this property is how quiet it is, despite being just a block from Venice Blvd. Estela was a very nice host, who was pleasant to meet, but did not intrude at all, otherwise. She was always just a text away, if I needed anything.

I would definitely stay here again for a similar trip.

The place was like a heavenly garden with all the amenities one could ever desire!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time at this VRBO location. Our hostess Estela has though of every detail while outfitting this property down to the thoughtful snacks and fresh baked cookies. We really had no need to bother our host because we had all that we needed and more! We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to LA! Thank you for making our stay so awesome and unique Estela!

Idyllic back yard, great location

  • 5 of 5

Estella's studio was quiet, very clean, had super comfortable bedding (including the sofabed for our 19 year old son) and THE most beautiful back yard with heated pool and jacuzzi. Host was accommodating about our wanting to have my son and 3 of his friends over to BBQ and jacuzzi following his run in the L.A. Marathon, which was the reason for our visit. The house is on a nice quiet street, but a quick drive to Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey, Culver City etc. We would definitely stay here again.
