Everything was excellent. Paul was responsive, welcoming and available. The place was spacious and the outdoor garden was exceptionally beautiful. Convenient parking right in from. A lovely quiet block in a lovely quiet neighborhood.
This is my home away from home in LA. I LOVE IT. Paul and Bryan create a 5 Star experience for their guests. The secret is out now, this is one of the best places to stay in LA. Guys, please tell me where I can buy that mattress and topping. It feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. Everything about this place is WONDERFUL!!!!
Delightful Home and Perfect Hosts. Just wish I'd had more time. Thanks for everything. Beautiful location (would help to have a car) and easy commutable distance to all the major LA attractions.
I can't fault the accommodation in the slightest it really was perfect and the hosts Paul and Bryan were helpful and friendly (without being intrusive) again I wish I'd had more time to see them while in LA.
If your wondering if you should stay here take my advice and book now before someone else does.
Beautiful house, amazing view, peaceful garden and deck, charming neighborhood and great hosts: this is the perfect place to stay in LA! We will definitely stay again.

We had such a wonderful time at Paul and Bryan's place that we booked it again two days into our stay. In total we stayed for 10 days in a two week span and we really could not have asked for a better host. I booked this place for my mom, my aunt, and my sister for their stay in the U.S. to attend my wedding and P&B made them feel right at home. On the last night of our stay P&B even hosted an outdoor movie night for the four of us as well as my wife's family to celebrate our marriage. It was a special touch and now I will ask everyone that is visiting me in the SoCal area to stay with P&B going forward. That is how much my family loved and enjoyed their stay.
Bryan and Paul are such amazing hosts that I quickly booked another trip with them after the first day! They were kind enough to accommodate a couple of our last minute changes and we are forever grateful for them. I actually booked the house for my mom, aunt, and sister for their trip to the States from Asia and they love every second they spent here. The garden WILL make you jealous about the fact you will never have a garden like that if you want to live in Los Angeles (I'm a local resident living few blocks away). The view is simply breathtaking and the fengshui is great with the air flowing through the house. Definitely will choose them again in the future.
Paul and Bryan always create such a welcoming environment. It was a pleasure to be back. The house is extremely neat and stylish. And the garden is truly stunning. Highly recommended!
