"You've seen the pictures on the website. All I can add is that this place is exactly as represented...The house lives up to its reputation, it's a true oasis in Los Angeles... It was like being in a resort...We couldn't have been more comfortable...The kitchen is spacious and appointed with a professional coffee machine...Kiki and Salim were gracious in providing empty drawers in the bedrooms for our belongings...The towels and sheets were of high quality...parking is absolutely NO problem, even on the street cleaning days...the backyard is dreamy, equipped for kids and adults alike... This location has excellent access to the airport with the option of using city streets....The location was perfect as it was near LAX, the highway, grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and only a short drive to the beaches"

  • Kiki and Salim have a beautiful home! We had some trouble getting to the house with the oneway street and us not being experienced L.A. drivers, but we managed eventually. Kiki greeted us upon arrival as they were there at their Airstream in the backyard for a short time. The bedding was comfortable and accommodated our family of 6 well. The showers were also wonderful. The house was in easy walking distance to Venice street with many interesting shops. We even visited the farmer's market on Venice and Grand View on Saturday morning. It was amazing! My mother fell in love with the expresso machine. Salim was very kind to demonstrate how it worked. I have a feeling Dad will be remodeling the kitchen back home to accommodate one. The house was a comfortable temperature even without air conditioning. We would just open the doors when it felt warm. We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend this home to others.

  • I didn't want to leave!
    This should give you and indication of how fabulous this house is. From the first instance of booking Kiki and Salim we have had great communication with us. On arrival we could see that the photos really don't reflect just how lovely their home is. The home felt really spacious and was furnished and decorated beautifully, it was spotlessly clean and they provided everything you would need to call this place your home, lots of lovely towels, bedding and toiletries etc. I have to mention that the master bed is the best bed we have ever slept in (we will be contacting them to find out the manufacturer) and the shower and steam room were bliss. The open plan style living accommodated our family of five more than comfortably and the garden truly is a lush oasis. It was a pleasure to sit out at night in the beautifully lit garden listening to music. There are no negatives to mention staying here, great location and neighbourhood to explore L.A. from. We really cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you Kiki and Salim!

  • This home was incredible. Everything we were anticipating based upon the listing and more! My husband and I definitely look forward to returning to the Eco Chic Oasis when we travel back to LA next year! Thank you!!

  • Kiki and Salim's oasis is a 5 star-property! The house has everything you may think of, and the backyard with its little "jungle" and lounge area are very relaxing.
    Kiki and her family are very friendly and helpful, and communicating with them was extremely easy at any time.
    Highly recommendable, and I would stay at their place anytime again!

  • Kiki's place was where I want to come back in Los Angeles much more than any other places. The time I spent here was wonderful, and this place definitely made my vacation wonderful. The real images of this place was more beautiful than the pictures here. My friends and I didn't want go out from the house. Kiki's was the best place to stay in Los Angels!
