We enjoyed an outstanding stay. The property was quiet, clean and comfortable. Shelley and her husband were very acomodating and hosted a fabulous visit to Southern California. High recommendation to anyone visiting the area. Until next time -
We spent a really nice time in Shelley's guesthouse. It's very well located (easy drive to Santa Monica, Hollywood Bd, LAX...) and a beautiful place to stay in LA. Shelley is a very accomodating and welcoming host who provides a delicious homemade breakfast. We definitely recommend the place!
What a great experience it was!!!! First, Shelley was a very lovely host. She was accommodating and very great in helping me and my sisters find places to go to. The apartment was very clean and beautifully decorated. On the day we arrived, she had brought us delicious treats she had made herself. She made herself available during our stay and constantly checked on us to make sure we were comfortable. I would highly recommend her place.
Shelley is a wonderful host and we really enjoyed the stay at her place. She was accommodating of our late arrival due to a flight delay, gave us a tour of the room, and then brought us some homemade muffins and jams for breakfast! She was available if we needed her but we were free to go about with our activities. We would stay there again if we visit :)
Top marks to Shelley for her welcoming and information package; the listing here was also highly accurate. We definitely enjoyed our stay, especially the muffins and convenience of the central LA location and easy access to LAX.
The listing description failed to do the guesthouse justice. It was incredible! Everything you need, perfect location and a tranquil setting. The sound of the fountains was relaxing.
My hose, Shelley, was wonderful, accommodating, friendly and a true hostess in every sense of the word. Friendly and so helpful!
She recommended several restaurants which were perfect, as well as driving hints which were a life send. Granted I am originally from Los Angeles but I had not really been there for over a day in nearly 20 years so her tutorial on LA was truly appreciated.
I hope to welcome her to Seattle one day!
This place is a lovely hideaway that is quaint, clean, safe, and welcoming. The garden is a peaceful sanctuary. The kitchen is well equipped for quick, simple meals. The breakfast and coffee are delectable, and Shelley and her husband are kind, caring hosts. In addition to the varied sights and sounds of LA, check out the hip Abbott Kinney district just a few miles away.
Poet, ex-attorney and mom..now that my kids are grown I'm happy to welcome visitors from everywhere! I have lived in France and traveled in Western and Eastern Europe - also spending a lot of time in Latin America. I love cooking and music and have been known to salsa dance from time to time. Los Angeles has so much to offer..special places for food, music, art and film that it will be my pleasure to share with guests.
