Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is very clean, updated, and cozy. It really is like a home away from home. There's a nice yard here that's very open with comfortable lounge chairs & patio furniture. Close to the marina and shops. Great place for a family. Kitchen has high-end appliances, including washer & dryer. Kitchen had everything we needed to make home cooked meals. Everything worked perfectly. Close to a very nice park. If you need to hit the beaches or L.A. tourist traps, you have to rent a car. Franco and Iris were great hosts. They were warm & inviting. The place has everything you need for a comfortable stay and a safe neighborhood feel. Would stay there again.

Near Perfection!

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice property in a quiet setting. It was perfect for our needs. We rented it while visiting our son, a freshman at nearby Loyola Marymount University. While there we hosted a dinner for he and his friends and their families over parents weekend. It was a lovely setting with plenty of seating spilling into a very well done outdoor area complete with a fire pit, gas heaters, multiple outdoor tables & chairs (all in excellent condition) and a large sauna. The neighborhood was very quiet, which we also appreciated. Owners even provided a well stocked spice rack and use of washer and dryer. The kitchen is lovely and easy to cook in with the exception of very dull knives - will bring my own next time. We would definitely stay here again. Giving 4 stars instead of five as there is only on street parking and the neighborhood appears a bit dodgy; although we did not have any problems. We normally house our vehicles in the garage - hence the lack of covered parking is an issue for us.

Owner's Response: Cindy, Thank you for your review. Our guests should always contact us right away if there is anything they need, or if there is anything not working as expected. We have purchased a new set of knifes so you will not have to bring your own next time you stay with us. The house only has two parking spots in the front of the house, we did not know that you need two spots. Most guest only one car. just let us know next time so my wife can park here car next door, so you will have two spots available. We are looking forward having at our house again. Franco & Iris

Lots of outdoor private space!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks a lot to Franco and Iris for making our vacation in Los Angeles so perfect. The house is great. Well maintained kitchen helped us in cooking great dishes. The best feature is outdoor space that is private and very cosy. It was our best trip to LA. We'll definitely come back!

Great place - highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as advertised and more. The hosts were very accommodating and we loved all the facilities the property had to offer. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need and the garden area was private, spacious and lovely with a great hot tub. Also loved the use of their bikes to cycle to Venice beach and beyond. Would recommend to anyone wishing to stay in the area.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this property just a couple of weeks ago. The house is in a very convenient location. It is in close proximity to all the activities that we wanted to do in LA but far enough away so that we returned to a quiet neighborhood where we could relax and enjoy at the end of the day. There is also a plaza that is within walking distance that offers a grocery store and restaurants. We loved making our daily run to the Bagel Shop and Jamba Juice.

The apartment is setup perfectly and very private. The inside is very clean and updated. The back yard is the big bonus. It was so relaxing to sit out there every morning with a cup of coffee and return there at the end of the day to spend time with our family, enjoy the hot tub and sit around the fire pit.

I would definitely return to this property and would highly recommend it. It is such a nice option for a family with younger kids to have the space as opposed to staying in a one room hotel. This property gave us a nice, comfortable place to rest our heads at night but also provided us with a setting to hang out and spend time with our family. Thank you Franco & Iris!

Perfect city and beach getaway location!

  • 5 of 5

Franco's and Iris' property provided the ideal set-up for a relaxing, homey experience amid the hustle and bustle of LA. After a beach day or after exploring the many attractions of Los Angeles, my friends and I felt very spoiled during our college reunion to return to this beautifully, modernly renovated home, relax in the hot tub or around the fire pit, or cook up a dinner to share in the supplied kitchen. The property was easily accessible, and we felt very secure. Franco and Iris were very thoughtful to make sure it was all prepared for our coming, and we can't recommend this listing enough!
