Nice GuestHome close LA walk beach

House - Entire home/apt · Loma Vista Street, El Segundo, CA 90245, United States

The Space

This is a private guest house located in El Segundo and close to Manhattan beach and Santa Monica. It can sleep up to four and is great for anybody who wants to be close to the beach. The apartment is in El Segundo, with only a 3 minute walk to the beach. If you have a pet, I charge an additional 100 for cleaning upon arrival. the back yard is not available for use unless you pay an additional 100 per night for each night of your stay or we work out something in our emails. That includes jaccuzzi and BQ and tables. I prefer you always use the alley entrance and no pets in the back yard please. The apartment includes:

- WIFI
- Flatscreen TV with cable, including HBO
- Queen size bed
- Private full bath and shower (stocked with shampoos, conditioner, and body wash)
- Full kitchen
- Parking
- Personal entrance to apartment from back alley.

- Venice Boardwalk (15 minutes away).
- Downtown LA (20 minutes away)
- Hollywood (20 minutes away)

While it is a short distance to many hotspots, the apartment is in a quiet, relaxing area. Beautiful greenery outside with a table and spot to hang out. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. There are many restaurants in walking distance; just ask and I will give you recommendations!

Great for week trips or monthly. Parking is in the back and private entrance.

  • A nice guesthouse for discover LA, Carrie was perfect with us, many thanks for her welcoming and her kindness ! Anything had missing ! Was a good place to stay !

  • Our stay was incredible thanks to Carrie's lovely beach home. Everything from the abundance of snacks/coffee and towels to the prime location of the home allowed our vacation to be a success. Not only were basic things such as one of the most comfortable beds in the world included, but tape, ice cubes, and lint rollers as well. It comfortably fit four people and I'm sure anyone who decides to stay here will be satisfied. BONUS: The dogs are extremely adorable.

  • Das Preis-Leistung-Verhältnis stimmt. Das Guest-house ist klein, hat aber alles was man braucht. Es ist sauber, alles funktioniert und es besteht aus zwei separaten Zimmern, einer Küche mit Tisch und einem Badezimmer mit Dusche.
    Carrie ist meistens unterwegs, doch wenn sie zu Hause ist, ist sie ein hervorragender Gastgeber. Sie kennt El Segundo sehr gut und hilft gerne weiter.
    Der Strand ist in fünf Minuten zu Fuß erreichbar, wie auch Downtown El Segundo, wo es alles gibt was das Herz begehrt. Zum Flughafen ist es ebenfalls nur eine kurze Autofahrt, wie auch zu den Stränden von Manhattan Beach und Santa Monica.
    Insgesamt war meine Erfahrung in Carries Guest-house super und wie schon gesagt, für das Geld kann man in Los Angeles nicht besser unterkommen.

  • It was a great trip! And this place was very suitable all my needs! Nice, quit, tranquil! And Carrie is perfect host! Thank her very much!

  • Carrie was such a sweet and kind host. She made sure we had everything we needed and also left a list of stores and restaurants along with the house manual which came in handy. She was always just a text away and always replied warmly. I accidentally dropped and broke one of her porcelain plates but she reassured me that it was not a big deal and to not worry about it; to just enjoy the rest of my trip and have fun. She is truly the kindest!

    As for the guesthouse, it was extremely cozy and in a very quiet and safe neighborhood. There was plenty of space throughout the house and we felt right at home. The bed is so, so comfortable--we slept like babies. We will definitely come back for a stay at Carrie's when visiting L.A. :) Thank you Carrie for allowing us to stay at your guest house and for making our first Airbnb rental a wonderful experience.

  • Carrie's GuestHome was my first airbnb experience. The home, accommodations, and overall experience exceeded my expectations. Carrie and her son defied the warm, welcoming, and protective nature I was searching for from a host, particularly during this specific trip to LA. I have stayed with friends and family in the past and also corporate hotels. Neither left me with the authentic feel for living on my own in LA, as I have been exploring during my transition to relocate. Staying in Carrie's guest home filled this important step for me and I couldn't have imagined a better scenario. I was given my privacy and respected hers as well; however our few exchanges over my week's stay, including our chat prior to my arrival, played a pivotal role in my overall comfort and satisfaction. Carrie is an inspiring and beautiful woman (100% accurate to her profile)! I felt at home in the mornings when I woke up and when I returned at the end of long days out. Knowing Carrie and Tyler were next door or a phone call away if I needed anything left me at ease and added to my retreat. A home away from home is never a true authentic experience without the feeling of having a friend next door. Thank you Carrie and Tyler - I'm grateful for the kind and thoughtful, gracious energy you exuded effortlessly.

    The bed was unbelievably comfortable and home was immaculately clean. I had convenient parking, a full and remodeled kitchen, comfortable sitting area with pull out couch and television, heat, fans, and screened windows for fresh air... all that I could control myself when I needed one or the other. Plenty of room and storage space in the bedroom and bathroom, and extra towels and linens. The guest home is mini sanctuary with just enough simplicity and tasteful décor combined. I HIGHLY recommend this home and would any other Carrie hosts. I hope to book with Carrie again in the future, and should I use airbnb in another city after this first experience, I'm afraid my standards will be hard to meet!!

    Response from Carrie:

    Jackie,
    What a kind and thoughtful review. Both Tyler and I really enjoyed meeting you and having you stay. Yes, it feels like family when people know how to give and to receive. You are the reason I love airbnb. It helps me financially but it really adds so much joy to my life meeting wonderful people such as yourself. I remember moving from NY to CA and needed safe, loving helpful people so I'm always there for you and for my guests. Thanks again and Please come back very soon. Warmly, Carrie

  • Carrie's guesthouse had all the amenities for an extended stay. It's a great location in quaint El Segundo just a few minutes walk from the beach. And the bed is SO comfortable.

  • Carrie is the best. So nice and helpful, and her place is simply amazing. Very quiet, charming and practical. The area is also great. I definitely recommend Carrie's guest house.

    November 2013
  • Carrie was very easy to deal with. It was my first airbnb experience but everything went so smoothly! The house was located in a very safe, quiet and convenient place in El Segundo. We could walk to the beach, cafe, stores... etc. I had to contact her once because we ran out toilet paper but she was so quick in response so there was no stress.
    I wish I could get to know her better! I definitely recommend if you are traveling to LA!!

  • Carrie's cottage was perfect for my daughter and my needs. My daughter was relocating to LA area and this was a great base to explore the area for apts and for her to get to work. I was within walking distance to shops and the beach. Had minor problems parking a couple of times but overall a great experience! The cottage is appointed with everything you need and was very clean. She is a wonderful hostess and made us feel right at home. We really enjoyed our stay and would book this again in the future if needed! Thanks Carrie!

About
I have lived in El Segundo for over 15 years. I am originally from upstate New York. I am a professional business woman in Medical imaging and I work for General Electric. I travel much of the time, but always leave a note or have someone here to help. I have traveled all over the world and appreciate boutique, charming, warm accommodations versus corporate hotels. Some of my favorite destinations are the south of France, Belgium, Germany, Asia, and Costa Rica. I have one son, Tyler, who goes to a university in California. I have two small, friendly dogs that follow me around the house and compete to sit on my lap. I am a social butterfly and blessed with a lot of amazing friends. I enjoy going to yoga everyday. I am smart, beautiful, and can sometimes be humble :-) I am part of a professional choral group, and I enjoy opera, jazz, contemporary, and world music. My favorite movies are: Harold and Maude, Being John Malchovich, Notting Hill, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Midnight in Paris. As a hostess, I will greet you and give you an overview of the town. And, of course, I will leave you to your privacy. If you need anything, I am a knock or a phone call away. I live in the front house. You have your own entrance in the back.
