The accommodation is really awesome! Plenty of indoor and outdoor space for 6 guests. Hosts John and Fe made us feel home and very understanding about our needs. My family enjoyed the stay.

I travelled to LA with my two children aged 10 and 14. They loved the house. We had the whole B&B to ourselves and all the facilities we needed to cater our needs. The salt swimming pool was immaculate, and enjoyed every day in the setting of a wonderful garden with great sunshine all day long. The hosts are terrific, friendly, warm and welcoming. I can't speak highly enough of the whole experience. We recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a comfortable home base while in California, and we shall certainly return.

Fe and john are very loving people i spent a week with them we felt like we are family! The house is very clean and charming. AC cools the house instantly. The water that been using in the pool is a high quilty seawater. It is like a 5 stars hotel. Highly recommand it. Best of luck guys!

Fe and Johns place was lovely. They were very helpful and friendly. We stayed in the studio and the den apartment and both were great. As hosts you couldn't ask for better.

This place is beautiful, picturesque, quiet, and a perfect getaway. It's a pretty easy drive to most places in LA. The only minor complaints I really have are about the air conditioning which seems like other guests had a similar experience. It was really hot in the house and Fe said the repairmen were supposed to come during our stay but she didn't want to bother us. I told her to absolutely let them come and she said she already told them not to come. I would have rather dealt with repair guys than to be uncomfortable for 4 nights. Also, it lists that they was laundry, but there wasn't. We had to reuse the same 2 wet towels a person for the pool and bath for 4 days. And finally, Fe gave us permission to invite my brother, his wife, and their 2 children (an infant and a 3 year old) to enjoy the pool. But at 4:30pm, she asked if we could wrap it up. We weren't being loud, it was just a bunch of kids enjoying themselves. Fe was really nice about it. But considering the price we paid, it was slightly annoying that we couldn't enjoy the pool for more than 4 hours with my family. But otherwise, the place truly is great and Fe and John were quite lovely hosts. I would definitely go back.

Response from Fe And John:
Kate is so right about the air conditioning, we suffered equally ourserlves. When you left the A/C technician detected a leak in the evaporator coil, but it took another four days (as long as your stay) for their crew to come and replace it, - a six hour job and right behind your bathroom door. It was a mess, tying up the bathroom and both noisy and dirty. We took a chance to postpone it as we had no immediate booking pending after you. Sorry, unfortunate but not totally ovoidable. Laundry, yes there is both washer and dryer in the laundry room out back, which is for shared guest use only. Fe thought she showed it to you as we always do to our guests upon arrival, sorry if she forgot; wish you would have asked. We all thought the pool party got too loud with the children crying which is quite common though not so compatible with John situation as he just had been discharged from the hospital, so she asked for quiet and you were good enough to comply. Thank you. Please note, she did not insist on collenting a guest visitor pool fee (posted on the patio), nor did she question an extra adult guest that she noticed hiding under a blanket and staying over... for three nights? You did not mention anything about it yourself.. Be it as it may. You are Airbnb hosts yourselves, and know there is often more than one way to view a situation. We are sorry if you found it wholely unjustified.

Fe and John were great hosts! Fe immediately showed us around Glendale as soon as we arrived ant took us grocery shopping. Their daughter Emily was so sweet and give us a lot of recommendations for the rest of our trip. We truly felt welcomed! The place is located in the basement of their home in a great neighborhood. The pool is amazing. Perfect place to have a nice chat with other guests also welcomed by Fe and John in their annex. Would definitely recommend it!

We had a great stay with Fe and John at their beautiful place. After a full day of touristing in hectic LA, it was very nice to come home to their peaceful haven, have a dip in the pool and relax in the patio. Fe and John are super friendly and just as involved as you would like. Their helpful tips and hints made our stay even better! We'd love to came and stay again and would recommend them without reservations.

We are FELOLITA (Fe) and JOHN ANDERSEN, and you are correct: We were not born here but had to travel like you to meet in Southern California, but that was in the last century. So welcome, let us get acquainted; we were both islanders but from far away places.

Fe was born on one of the two thousand inhabited islands in the Philippines (but did not visit them all) and came here to make the most out of life. She is a nurse and works for an international company that tests new products for pharmaceutical manufacturers.
She fled a hot sun and oppressive humidity for a kinder sunny climate, but never from her genuine love of people which we both share. She still loves the water and fresh seafood, but above all life, music, and happy laughter. No wonder she turned into such a wonderful cook par excellence.

John was born in Denmark, developed a taste for traveling early and getting away from a dreary overcast climate. He came to the USA for college and never stopped seeking new horizons. In the process he discovered that language is not just a study course, but something to practice free lance while you meet this big wonderful world of ours, which grew immensely after he parked his childhood shoes. He lived in South America, did international business and visited half of the so called countries, for you must get out if you want to meet the world and develop appreciation. In time he also followed his dream and founded a company in the medical business.

Nothing here is run of the mill. Together we have prepared a comfortable and very private home for you away from home, where you can kick your shoes off and relax in privacy. The pool is large and the sunshine plentiful, and we shall greet you when you come up the longest driveway East of Eden. Welcome to Early California;. - now kick them off.
