Courtney & Nick's home was perfect for us! It's super-cozy, clean and tranquil, plenty of space for two, and in a really pretty and quiet neighborhood. Well equipped kitchen and great patio with table and chairs. No problem at all with on-street parking, well located just a few minutes' drive from shops, restaurants, and beaches.
Although our hosts were out of town, Courtney was super-communicative and helpful, doing everything to help make our stay enjoyable and to make the process really easy. We thoroughly recommend this guest house - we'll certainly try to plan our next trip to LA around its availability. Thank you Courtney & Nick!
We had a wonderful stay at Courtney and Nick's lovely guest house. Everything was well prepared, with fresh flowers welcoming us. Great place for two people! The neighborhood is quiet and convenient. It takes only a short drive to the beach, and there are several nice restaurants nearby.
We had a really nice stay in Courtney and Nick's guest house! It's in a nice residential neighborhood, and is close to a bunch of restaurants, shopping, and the beach. The guest house is very private, clean, and quiet. It is also quite spacious, especially since there were just two of us staying there. The kitchen and dining area were very useful, and the guest house overall is nicely decorated. Courtney and Nick were communicative and helpful, and made the whole process really easy. This was a great home base to explore Los Angeles from!
Courtney and Nick (and London) are wonderful hosts - charming and friendly but unobtrusive and discreet allowing you to get on with everything without any interference , whilst remaining attentive.
The cottage is lovely - bright and airy, comfortable and well appointed and above all, wonderfully tranquil. It is easy to forget you are close to the beach and in the middle of a bustling city.
Mar Vista is really convenient for Venice and Santa Monica and their beaches, the 10 and the 405, and the airport, but you do need a car - like everywhere in LA really. Parking at the cottage is great however and there are 3 or 4 great bars/restaurants in easy walking distance.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and recommend staying at Caswell Avenue unhesitatingly - we certainly will be next time we are in LA.
Another great stay at Courtney & Nick's clean and comfortable guest house. Communication was quick and efficient, parking was easy and the location is excellent. I highly recommend staying here.
From the moment I arrived I felt like a welcomed guest. Courtney, Nick and their delightful son, London made my stay in their lovely guest house very enjoyable. It is clean, open and bright set in a comfortable and quiet yard in a beautiful and convenient neighborhood. I have already booked my second stay. You can't go wrong here.
This was my first airbnb experience and it worked out wonderfully! Courtney and Nick's guest house was clean, charming, well appointed and very quiet. I never actually met them in person, but through some basic messages they made the process very easy. Thanks Courtney and Nick!!!
