Truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property while visiting our son in Culver City. It was so comfortable and Estela provided a lot of really nice touches to make us feel at home. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate so we couldn't enjoy the pool, but we plan to stay here on any future visits to the area.

Relaxing get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this rental for one night as a relaxing get-away close to where I was taking a board exam the next day. It was just what we were looking for--quiet, comfortable, and with lots of little "perks" that made it feel romantic and special (in unit sauna, pool/hot-tub, ping pong table, snacks/drinks available, etc.). This property is absolutely beautiful and we hope to be back for a longer stay sometime soon! Highly recommend. Estela made check in easy and left us to ourselves, but it was very nice knowing that she was available should we need anything.

Why stay at a hotel when you can stay here??

  • 5 of 5

There is more than one reason why Estela and Steve have such amazing reviews from everyone about their studio. After staying at Estela’s and Steve’s for a few days, here are my many reasons why I would come back;

- They are easy to contact and they respond very quickly to any questions, concerns or requests you may have

- They are super accommodating – Estela so kindly arranged for us to be able to check-in earlier

- The studio is spacious, bright and clean. It is also private so I really appreciated that too.

- The bed is huge and comfy

- WONDERFUL saltwater, heated pool and hot tub, which you can use anytime as long as you are respectful of noise in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed this as we were able to go for a swim in the morning before heading out for the day.

- Great dry sauna inside the studio. It was nice winding down the day with this before bed!

- The little things that are so readily available in the studio such as coffee, snacks, beverages, shampoo, makeup remover... etc. All of this adds up and makes for a great experience and is so convenient!

- Location of the studio – close to great restaurants, main roads and freeway

- The fact that some great restaurants is in walking distance is worth mentioning again for me. Estela and Steve have a Welcome Book in their studio and there are some restaurant recommendation in there. They recommended Little Fatty and we absolutely loved it. I also noticed that on Sunday, there was a farmer’s market nearby. We didn’t get a chance to check it out but I look forward to seeing it the next time we come and stay.

I had such a nice time staying here and very much look forward to coming back. Thank you SO MUCH for a lovely vacation!

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.
