Really great place & location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights and it was great - great location and comfortable unit. We weren't able to take advantage of everything the unit had to offer but we were able to use the pool which was great. I highly recommend this vrbo rental.

amazing cozy escape

Estela was super hospitable and so very nice. We truly enjoyed our stay at her beautiful home. It was also a great location and close to every place we wanted to visit. We hope to stay there again soon. Thanks Estela!

I've had the pleasure of staying here several times and I truly love this place. This was my first home away I did and definitely it will never be my last. It will always be a go to when I get a chance.

Perfect studio

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the weekend with our 15 month old. There was plenty of space for her to run around both inside and out. The yard and pool were beautiful and very relaxing. We loved the pool and the spa was set at 100 degrees so it was still perfect for the little one to use. Plus, the travel crib that Estela had was so nice! Having the refrigerator was a huge bonus for snacks. The bathroom is cozy, but there is another mirror in the kitchen area with a nice counter that worked as an extension of the bathroom. The location was great for walking, we took a black car from the airport and walked everywhere. We would definitely stay here again.

Loved The Pool and Hot tub

  • 5 of 5

The location of the Estela's home was perfect for us. Only an 8 mins drive to the Venice Canals and Beach, 5 mins from Costco. The only issue with the amazing backyard that had a pool, hot tub, hammock, sitting area with TV, was that we didn't want to go out sight seeing. When we did go out, all day we would be looking forward to getting back to the hot tub.

The only issue was that there wasn't a big enough fan for the room. There is no air conditioner but only a small fan. It would get hot at night in the basement.

Other than that, the place was perfect

Owner's Response: Hi Sim, we are very glad you loved our property. We enjoyed having you during your fun visit. I am sorry that you had trouble with the temperature but we do have air conditioning. The pamphlet in the studio explains how to turn it on should you need it. Most people don't because of our proximity to the beach and the cool air. The small fan you used is actually a space heater with a fan option, so by using it I am sure it made things worse. I hope you will come to stay with us again. We are continuously looking for ways to make our property more comfortable to guests and thank you for your input.

Amazing Property with Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing time at this rental. We came down to go to Universal Studios, but didn't want to stay in a hotel because they are so expensive. We also wanted to have access to a pool and hot tub because we love to swim. We could not have asked for a better location or property. The pool was absolutely amazing - couldn't get my 7 year old out of there. The pool has a fountain option which my daughter loved. The unit was very clean and had everything we needed. Estella left us some amazing cookies and treats upon arrival. We will definitely be back.
