We spend 2 nights at the private guest house with kitchen in May 2015. Anna-Pia and John were terrific hosts: before arrival, they were quick to communicate information, said hi when we arrived and then were unobtrusive during our stay. The unit was terrific - it looked exactly like the photos. We would definitely stay again!
The guest house is as described. Everything is high quality, very clean and new. The area is nice and quiet, parking was no problem.The only thing we can think of, that is missing is a TV. Other than that the house is perfect for a stay in this area and we would definatly come again.
We stayed in this delightful place for 5 days, in May, for Loyola Marymount's graduation. The location was perfect for our needs, only about 10 minutes away. The room is a separate building, at the back of a lovely garden, and was quiet and restful. Because of arriving late and some evening commitments, we didn't get a chance to meet either of our hosts until maybe the third day. Anna-Pia was super nice and accommodating. The place was clean and well appointed—great bedding and towels. They provided several restaurant recommendations within a 15 minute walk, and all were great. We would highly recommend staying here.
Anna & John have an amazing home! We loved the guest house with the kitchenette! The house looks just like the pictures. It was clean & we had no issue with anything there. We chatted with John & Grace! My husband and I wouldn't hesitate to book there guest house again!
Für uns war es das erste Mal, dass wir im Urlaub die Möglichkeit von Airbnb wahrgenommen haben, waren darum mehr als gespannt auf diese Begegnung. Nach vielen teilweise sehr unpersönlichen Hotels, bei denen man beim Checkin nicht mal angesehen wird, war diese Begegnung eine neue Erfahrung. Anna - Pia und John waren sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich, haben uns sehr gastfreundlich und herzlich empfangen. Die Unterkunft war für uns eine ruhige und erholsame Oase, nach einem mehrwöchigen Trip durch Kalifornien. Die Bilder hielten, was sie im Internet versprachen. Sehr sauber, netter Garten und vor allem ruhig ! ( man hörte am Morgen sogar die Vögel - kaum zu glauben in einer Großstadt, wie Los Angeles ! Die Lage absolut Top, nahe der Stadt, mit Auto kein Problem, auch Parkmöglichkeiten immer gratis vorhanden ( in vielen Hotels zahlt man alleine dafür oft schon einiges. ) Wir können diese Unterkunft mit den sehr herzlichen Gastgebern sehr empfehlen !! Gerne wieder ! Wir möchten auf den nächsten Reisen gerne noch mehr Airbnb Unterkünfte kennen lernen. Vielen Dank nochmals liebe Grüße Sabine & Thomas
Anna-Pia was a lovely host. Beautiful place, clean, looks exactly like photos. Close to everything! Highly recommend :)
This is a great option for staying in the Marina Del Rey/Playa Del Rey/Venice area. The neighborhood is one of my favorites: safe, very pleasant and family oriented, within walking distance to the Marina and area businesses. You really need a car to explore this area but this AirBnb can also be easily accessed via the #3 Big Blue Bus from LAX down Lincoln Blvd. But there is plenty of on-street parking if you have a car. The guest house is perfect and Anna-Pia and John have it set up for easy AirBnb access and with plenty of extras you might need: coffee making supplies, dishes, extra towels and blankets. The bed was very comfy and the guest house was quiet, private, and in the middle of a tranquil garden area. We'll definitely go back when we're in the area. We briefly met our hosts; wonderful people! Thanks so much for a great place to stay.
