Tara and Michael's place was just amazing! Since it was my first time using Airbnb, I was kind of nervous at first but it turned out to be such an awesome experience. Tara was so sweet and kind. We never got to meet Michael though, he must've been out of town. I loved that Tara made my friend and I feel right at home. The house was so cute and very clean and organized. I loved that there was easy street parking, I never had to worry about that. I never had to worry about anything at their place. And it was so close to the beach which was a huge plus for us!!! Definitely book a stay!

First time ever trying airbnb and it was fantastic. Constant email communication on check in date was great and they even let us check in early which was a huge plus. Finding the house was very easy (with GPS) and plenty of street parking. The room was extremely clean, bed was comfortable and the best part was that the neighborhood is very quiet so you'll have some really good sleep! We didn't get a chance to enjoy the patio as we were out for most of the day but it looked extremely peaceful. Overall a great airbnb! Definitely recommend if you're traveling to Los Angeles!

Probably the best airbnb you can find in LA. Tara and Michael are absolutely great hosts. Everything we'd ever need to know about the city from getting around to considering calling it home someday. House is beautiful, clean and homey, garden is charming and the bike path from their house to the beaches of LA was definitely the highlight of our trip! Thanks for the flexible timing and going beyond your way to help us enjoy the bikes! Definitely coming back here next time!

Tara & Michael User ProfileTara & Michael is a superhost.

Hi, we look forward welcoming you to our home!

We travel frequently internationally, backpacking-style or for business, we use airbnb most of the times, when we don't have a personal contact in the destination.

Michael is a meeting planner, moved to LA in the mid 90's, I am from Stuttgart.
Tara, moved about the same time from Toronto/Milton, she works as a nurse.

We enjoy to cook with our own veggies, that grow in our front yard. LA has soooo much to offer and we take advantage, year-round. Theater, all kind of Concert Events, Ethnic Events, Hiking or Biking along the Pacific Ocean (just minutes away from our house, by bike). Michael used to be a tour guide for many years, here in L.A., and all of the Southwest (CA, UT, AZ, NV).
