Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Oasis is a very accurate and perfect description for this gem of a place!

    My husband and I needed an escape from the cold and snowy East and I landed on Courtney & Nick's place on Airbnb - and I'm so relieved that I did. The guest house is everything described on the site and so much more - honestly, I'm not sure how it could have been any better.

    This is a charming, clean, happy space to be in with all the amenities one could ask for - and at an incredible value for this location. This is an infinitely better choice than any hotel could ever be. We would most definitely stay here again and again when we're in the area.

    It was a breeze to get to and from the airport - and an ideal central location for getting to all the places we wanted to visit. Everything about this place was easy and "right" - street parking was hassle-free, the very soothing, light-filled and clean space that makes you feel great and breathe a sigh of "I made a great choice" relief when you walk in the door. There's a sublimely comfortable bed, a convenient and user-friendly kitchen, a sparkling clean bathroom, and such a comfy sitting area for hanging out and relaxing.

    There are so many beautiful little loving touches throughout the place; it felt like staying in a space where we were warmly welcomed as guests by a caring family member who'd fussed for days to make sure our space was comfortable and perfect.

    The guest house is on a very lovely, serene, and safe street in a fantastic little neighborhood that's great for walking around. We appreciated, too, the convenience of the location - it's the best of all worlds: close enough to the streets and boulevards that easily get you to the popular places a visitor might want to see but simultaneously a very serene oasis of quiet and calm.

    It's within walking distance of at least one local restaurant that we quickly came to love (thanks to Courtney for the tip on that!) It's always great in a suburban neighborhood to be super-close to a good eating spot or two when you don't want to drive any place but are longing for some great eats after a day of travel or play.

    Courtney was an extremely gracious and generous host and did everything imaginable to ensure our comfort. No five-star hotel concierge could have possibly outdone her!

  • Courtney and Nick were fantastic hosts. The guest house was as pictured, very clean, private and comfortable. The bed was more comfortable than mine! They were available for any questions and advice on where to go out. They were very helpful while booking and quick to respond to initial emails.

    The house was a good location - close to anything you'd want to get to. You definitely need a car, but that's the essence of LA anyways.

    This was my first stay with AirBnB and I would definitely use the site again based on this stay.

  • This is the second time that I have stayed at Courtney's guest house. Both times I found the house to be spotless and well-maintained. Courtney was kind enough to leave very clear printed information and instructions. Her thoughtfulness in leaving some bottled water and chocolate bars was a really nice touch. She was incredibly easy to communicate with and very accommodating when my original flight was cancelled resulting in a one-day delay. I would recommend Courtney's guest house to anyone. I know that I will certainly be staying there again!

  • This was our 4th stay with Courtney and Nick. What can I add to other reviews. The flowers inside and in the garden are lovely.The chairs in the kitchen/living area are super comfortable. Lamps next to bed make reading in bed easy. There is a big (and inexpensive ) laundry 3 blocks away. We will be back!

  • Really nice place. Very clean. Wonderful hosts. Very comfortable bed. My parents stayed here for a month and really enjoyed themselves.

    February 2014
  • Courtney and Nick were great. I stayed for 3 weeks as a transition from Orange County up to LA. The location and the space are fantastic, Courtney and Nick are super friendly and helpful - all in all a great experience.

    December 2013
  • I stayed in Courtney & Nick’s guest house for a month during my business trip. The place was perfect for me: the suburb is safe and beautiful; location of the house was great, very easy to get around, supermarkets, restaurants and cafes are all nearby. The photos online are accurate, it's the same what I found in person, clean and tidy, very spacious as well. The hosts are very nice and have attention to details; eg, I have mentioned to Courtney I really appreciate the spices she provided in the kitchen as it allows me to make some nice home-cooked meals during the month long travel. In short I felt comfortable and enjoyable to stay in this Chic Charming guest house and would be happy to stay there again.
