We enjoyed to be close to the airport as well as to the Getty. We were just. In between this triangle including the beach. Weather was quite cool, but we loved walking around. It seems to be a secure area, by the way the noise from the airport was not bothering. Living conditions were ok, if you do not want to have a look on the latest News, as there is no TV. It was all super clean!! Thank you for giving us 3 nights in your house.
We recently stayed at Anna-Pia´s and John´s place for 4 nights and loved our cosy room with private entrance. The place was very welcoming, clean and quiet despite being attached to the rest of the house. Absolutely loved sipping my tea in the garden each morning and being greeted by the sun. We also had a very good Wi-Fi connection and the hosts provide a useful folder with information about the area, sights, bus timetables etc - well organised! There´s also a great organic grocery shop just a 2 minute walk down the street which came in very handy. We met Anna-Pia on a couple of occcasions and had lovely brief chats with her. We would definitely recommend their place and would return to them in no time on our next trip to LA - thank you for a lovely stay:-)

Merci à Anna-Pia pour son accueil chaleureux. Située dans un quartier résidentiel agréable et calme, la suite (attenante à la maison des propriétaires mais avec entrée privée à code) est confortable et très propre. Très grand lit double (bonne qualité de literie) , coin salon avec 2 fauteuils et table basse, salle de bain avec douche. Frigo, cafetière et bouilloire à disposition. Joli jardin avec brasero dont nous n'avons malheureusement pas pu profiter, le temps frisquet et pluvieux ne s'y prêtant pas... Bonne connection Wifi.
We stayed with Anna Pia and John for 2 nights as part of a wider trip to California. The location is excellent for those landing in LAX, around 15mins and we were there. Very handy after a long flight.
The hosts were very friendly and came and introduced themselves. The room is a great balance between being in someone's home and having your own space. The garden was beautiful!
Overall, I would recommend staying here!
We loved Anna-Pia and Johns' place located in a nice neighbourhood close to marina del rey. Although the room is connected to their house you don't have that idea.
Everything in the room/bathroom is well arranged and clean. Make sure you also enjoy some time in the evening in the garden. It's really cozy, as you can sit in very relaxed chairs, around a firepit close by an (olive?) tree nicely decorated with little lights. We would recommend anyone to stay here!!!
