About Barbara Schenk
Originally from the east coast, I've lived in Southern California since 1985 and love it! I've had many different jobs.... tv commercial producer, realtor, teacher, landscape designer. My husband is from Vancouver, British Columbia and keeps busy selling real estate, sailing, playing racquetball and spoiling me with the BEST barbeque! We have a son who has just graduated from university and will occassionally be staying in his room, which is across the hall from your room. If that is a problem, please tell me.
Barbara Schenk purchased this House in 1985
Why Barbara Schenk chose Mar Vista
For the price of a boring single room on a busy street, stay in our charming home surrounded by beautiful trees and flowers! Your room/bathroom are a private oasis. You have your own entrance and patio area complete with fountain, firepit, table and lounge chairs ! We've also provided a kitchenette area... mini fridg, microwave and coffee maker. Lots of free street parking
What makes this House unique
Our home is located in paradise.... quiet in the middle of the excitement of Los Angeles and calm though only 2 miles from the Beach! Where else can you go surfing in the morning and skiing in the afternoon. There's so much to do and see... world class theatre and dance/ beautiful scenery and beaches/incredible restaurants. As our guests, we invite you to enjoy our beautiful garden, our comfortable bed and serene bathroom.

Great stay...lots to do...good location, although it is not that near to the beach and I wouldn't have felt comfortable riding the bikes there in the evening due to traffic and some sketchy characters the closer you get to the beach. AC in the hall and bathroom would have been great! Bathroom updated and very nice! Comfortable bed, althought I think new pillows are in order. Barbara and Art were great hosts. She even loaned me a cooler, backpack, and her own bathing suit! She also found a ring I had lost and mailed it to me. I think you will enjoy staying here!
Quick stay in LA
Barbara is a lovely host and the property is situated in a good spot, close to a few things and far enough away not to be too noisy. We didn't look carefully enough at the listing to realize their wasn't a "sitting area" with the room. Literally just a bedroom and a bath, so that was a bit of a bummer for us. We like to have a small couch, chair, table, etc. to read or relax. There is an outdoor patio for that, which we enjoyed and took advantage of that instead. It all worked out - the room and bath were comfortable and had all we needed. Thanks Barbara!
Lovely People with Lovely house!
The hosts are incredibly lovely and here you have all you need. Our favorite assets were the bicycles and we used them every day to go to the venice beach and cruise around. You will not be sorry to come here :)
Very Pleasant Experience...a 5 STAR +
Met our needs exceptionally well. Owner was friendly and helpful. Appreciated access to and use of bicycles!
