maddalena's romantic escape is by far my favorite airbnb stay so far! it is clean and comfortable, with a great location in a quiet neighborhood, and beyond cute, both inside–with colorful artsy decor including audrey hepburn/vintage hollywood photos, and outside–with the hammock and umbrella-covered picnic table in the front yard; great for a bottle of red in the evening and coffee in the morning.
the bed was so comfortable! the appliances were all in great shape and easy to use, including the TV and A/C controls, the internet signal was strong, and parking in the driveway and off the street was the icing on the cake.
i would, and will, try to stay here again and again when in L.A. for business in the atwater/silverlake area.
thank you maddalena!
Magdalena is a very good host. We had a very pleasent stay in her house. It was in a great location and a safe neighborhood.
Maddalena was in constant contact and even though she was out of town for our visit her friend Iwana was a fabulous host. The house was immaculate! It was a relaxing oasis for my husband and children after long days at the beach and sightseeing. I would love to go back for another visit.
This beautiful guest cottage is exactly as described. It was so pretty and relaxing, we all wished we could've stayed longer. Maddalena was a warm and friendly host; her communication was excellent and she was there to greet us even though we arrived later than expected.
A very memorable vacation, thank you!
Very nice little home away from home, you could definitely feel the hostress's good taste from the nice, clean, and well designed yard and house. Good location, safe neighbourhood. Five stars no questions!
La petite maison est vraiment très sympa et accueillante, et la terrasse est un vrai coin de paradis pour se reposer! Le quartier est très calme, les voisins sympas. Nous avons séjourné à 4, et avons eu largement de la place. Maddalena est vraiment gentille, elle laisse des petits mots pour ses invités, et nous avons même reçu un panier garni pour notre mariage. Une expérience à renouveler, si nous repassons par LA, nous nous y arrêterons sans hésiter!
