Amazing! It was incredible to have the pool and hot tub all to ourselves!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was so friendly, showed us around and how to use everything. There were snacks and drinks provided as well! There is an outdoor tv beside the pool and we relaxed and watched a movie! Best place we have ever stayed!

A wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here a little over a week ago as a place to rest and destress for a couple of days before moving on to my next stop on vacation. I loved the apartment! It was clean, well decorated, and the bed was comfortable. Little touches like the cookies and fresh fruit that were left for us were appreciated. There is also a CVS and some restaurant with in walking distance from the apartment, which came in handy. I LOVED the pool and wish we had more time here to get to utilize the hot tub and sauna. If it is available the next time I'm in LA, I would definitely stay again. Also, working with Estela made booking, check in, and check out a breeze. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Estela was a fabulous host. The pool and yard area is so relaxing and the unit was comfortable and clean. Estela added lovely extras with snacks and fruit and it was close to local amenities. Would come again!

Lovely property, perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Estela's place several times, and it has always been great. I have no idea why they don't use the fantastic pool and hot tub, but guests really have it all to themselves. The location couldn't be better. The owner is always responsive and helpful.

Wonderful LA stay - convenient location, amazing amenities, terrific host!

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL stay. Estela is a terrific host - she was welcoming and gave us all the information we needed, then we basically had the place to ourselves afterwards. The pool is INCREDIBLE - heated, hot tub, all pool toys included, plus magnificent lighting! We would visit the sights of LA during the daytime, then retreat to our private pool in the evening. Estela even allowed us to have a few visitors over to enjoy the pool. The location is close to Venice Beach, Marina Del Ray and Santa Monica and convenient to Hollywood and Beverly Hills. There is a CVS within walking distance, along with some great local restaurants. We felt very safe walking around the Mar Vista neighborhood. The studio itself is very clean, with a great shower, comfortable bed, air conditioning (if you need it), full size sleeper sofa, fully stocked kitchen area, plus Estela provides snacks (fruit, granola bars), coffee, condiments, sun tan lotion/sprays, plenty of towels and even an extra tooth brush, which we needed. The studio also has a sauna which also used each night.

This place earns its almost 5 star rating. Our family had a terrific stay. You won't be disappointed!
