Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Lauren's beach house was everything we could have hoped for - and more. Traveling in a group of 6, only 2 of us had used airbnb before, the rest of the family was still new to the concept and somewhat confused and sceptical. All these hesitations disappeared as soon as they set foot in the gorgeous beach house. The open space, period features and stunning kitchen blew us all away. We didn't meet Lauren for the check-in, but it couldn't have gone any smoother. Beach towels were provided, and the kitchen was equipped with everything we could have possibly needed. The bedrooms are all of a great size and our beds were super comfortable.
    We didn't get to use the kitchen very much thanks to the vicinity of some great cafes and restaurants.
    All of us truly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful house and would always recommend it.

  • This was an absolutely gorgeous place to stay with my work team, we loved the location, the neighborhood, the houses, each bedroom was quite lovely and perfect. The living room and backyard were also thoroughly enjoyable. We all agreed we'd stay here again if we come back to the area! We even met our next-door airBNB neighbors who were quite a delight. Great place to stay!

  • We had a fun stay at Lauren's 3/3 Craftsmans cottage, the cottage is much roomier than the pictures show, and is furnished with style and comfort. There was plenty of room for 8 of us, in 3 large bedrooms. The 8th bed, an airbed, was a full sized twin and comfortable for our 13 year old, (though a pillow and comforter for this 8th bed would have been good). The location is perfect, walk to coffee shops, main street, the beach, and a short drive to 3rd street mall and the pier. Lauren quickly answered our questions regarding the key and stove upon our arrival. Thank you - we will definitely consider returning.

  • The house was very nice and spaceful! We were 5 friends and there was lot of place for us! There was very nice kitchen with a washer and dryer. There is no problem with street parking. The location is very close to many restaurants on Main Street. To Santa Monica Pier is 30 minutes walking distance.
    Perfect place for bigger groups, I would definitelly recommend this house!

  • Beautiful house, great location, good communication. The hood itself is a bit noisy, yes. But only because it's so close to wonderful bars, shopping, restaurants and and and. Can only recommend and will most definitely be back!

  • Great location. Short walk to Venice Beach and about a mile and a half to the Santa Monica Pier. Cab ride from LAX was short ($25-$33). The house felt welcoming and had plenty of natural light, meaning sleeping in could be difficult (only in the front room). Kitchen was really neat, almost like something from 40s/50s Midwest America (no microwave). We would definitely rent again. The owner was very accommodating and super sweet.
