We stayed at dean's place for a week. It's a very nice and cozy space. Dean had provided many additional facilities also that included cooking stove and washing machine. Before our visit I bombarded dean with questions and questions and questions about LA and he very calmly provided replies and information on where to go and what to do. A very helpful and humble host.
One of the best California experiences yet. Dean was so accommodating and friendly. His cottage was in a perfect location with all the amenities we needed for our stay. The fresh navel oranges right outside were delicious. Bananas were not ripe at the time but still awesome to see. Parking pad was a nice touch as we didn't need to worry about street parking. Will definetly be staying again.
We had a great five nights staying with Dean. The cottage is amazing and has everything you could wish for. We loved being able to have breakfast and drinks on the patio. The bed was comfortable, great to have parking and the fruit trees are amazing. Dean is very knowledgable and will give you advice on sight seeing. Thanks Dean.
Had an amazing, awesome time.. great place, and great host!! Will love to come back again! ! Thank you!
Dean was very welcoming and friendly, gave us several calls before our trip and a courtesy call at the end. We didn't get to chat much since our schedule was pretty busy in LA but he was caring about our trip. The cottage itself was cozy and comfy, stocked with amenities like towels, hair dryer, soaps/washs, and wifi worked well. Our car had its own parking spot, the area seemed nice and peaceful and we slept with a window half open to keep it cool. It was nice waking up to the birds chirping and not once did we wake up to any kind of disruptive noise in our 4 nights. Overall staying at Dean's place enhanced our vacation considerably over a standard hotel.
Dean is a consummate host. I truly enjoyed my stay at his BnB. Very close to everything, but cosy & quiet a hideaway away from the hustle/bustle of LA. I felt very comfortable and safe during my time at Deans. I had a great time talking to Dean and his brother, although my stay was short they treated me more as a friend then a tenant. I hate to say this because it'll be harder to secure his place the next time I visit LA, but I highly recommend this quiet oasis in Carson. Karl Raleigh, NC
My stay at Stand Alone Studio Cottage of Dean for 1 month was absolutely happy.
Dean is a superb host and deserves all the praise that guests dedicated to him. Not only Dean provided the essentials, he went far to be soooo generous. The Studio was packed of cleaning products, towels, linens. We found fresh milk, orange juice, olive oil, upon arrival. DEan left us alone but very welcoming when my husband came and sat with him for a chat.
The studio is in the back yard therefore is very quiet, there are an orange blossoming tree, kumquat, avocado, banana.....We really did enjoy ourselves to the fragrant perfume of the orange blossom throughout the day. The neighborhood is very quiet, but lively with families activities, kids going school, shops, that made us feel very much at home and safe.
Overall I would vote a 5 stars to Dean property and his hospitality.
We wanted to extend our stay but it was too late as he is always booked 2 months ahead.
Thank you Dean for providing to guests a superb place to call home away from hom.
