Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My mom stayed with Katherine and David while my son and I were in a separate airbnb house around the corner, but we all loved our time at their beautifully growing bnb. The house is pretty and bright, the amenities thoughtful and helpful, and your host and hostess gracious, charming and informative. The piece de resistance, though, is the backyard garden -- so pretty and peaceful after a big day out in the sun. Recommend wholeheartedly to any airbnb travelers!

  • Fantastic house with a fantastic host. Katherine has the perfect demeanor for someone who is opening up their home. We were made to feel very welcome, and greatly enjoyed Katherine's company. We would highly recommend staying here.

  • Katherine was an awesome host! The house and room were as shown via Airbnb. The pictures don't's comfy, affordable, and homely! First time I've been spoiled by a host honestly and I was overwhelmed with the assortment of cereals, treats, and kindness that was imparted on me! She also has an awesome list near the front door of events going on around the area! Super helpful if you're bored and have nothing to do. Great location as well whether you're in a car, walking or taking public transit. I also surprised her with some ice cream as a kind gesture for being that cool. When I'm down in the area again for family or work I'm definitely coming back! Thanks Katherine!!

  • Can't say enough good things about our experience at the California Room. The enviornment in the house is so inviting and Katherine was wonderful. The common area is welcoming and the kitchen has everything you need. The bedroom is sizeable, the bed was comfortable, and there is plenty of room for all your belongings.
    Parking was close, area is safe, close to all Southern CA offers.
    Will stay there again.

  • I stayed in this room for a recent 3 night trip to Santa Monica. I didn't have a chance to meet David, but I called him when I arrived and he walked me through everything I needed to know. I had a pleasant stay -the room and bathroom were clean and comfortable, and I appreciated the coffee for my early mornings. Thanks, David and Katherine!

  • I enjoyed my stay in the California Room very much. It was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable. I slept very well while there. Additionally, the location was perfect as I was attending classes @ USM and the walk to and from class each day was invigorating. I felt very welcomed and nurtured. Katherine was kind enough to pack me a breakfast on the day I left. I would simply describe Katherine as a host with two words...Grace & Ease. Highly Recommend!

  • This is a great bnb, and Katherine is a fantastic host!

    The California room is as it appears in the photo and the bed is extremely comfortable! The rest of the property is also very nice and well set up for guests. This room and the Spanish room are directly off a lovely kitchen/lounge area which guests virtually have to themselves. This, alongside Katherine also being so welcoming, means you never feel like your imposing (something I was a little nervous of being new to air bnb).

    The breakfast is hearty and even included gluten free bread!

    The property is really well placed both in terms of things around and for seeing Los Angeles. There are plenty of places to eat nearby including a Wholefoods. If, like me, you won't be driving while staying, there are good bus routes on Wiltshire and other close main streets which will get you on your way.

    Katherine was also a full of great recommendations (not one disappointed!), is very knowledgeable about LA and in general was extremely welcoming and helpful.

    I would definitely recommend..

  • We very much enjoyed staying with Katherine and David. We were made very comfortable, enjoyed meeting other guests and were greatly helped by Katherine in making the most of our limited time in LA.
