I loved staying here, not only is it well located but thoughtfully designed. I loved the out door area with the fire pit and the large dining table and cozy couch. The beds were super comfy and the bathroom is gorgeous. Highly recommend this place!!!!

I am an interior designer living in LA with my husband Alec and two kids. We love immersing ourselves in art and design as well as nature. We built Veneer Retreat to have the best of both worlds.
