Lovely house in a nice quiet street. Enjoyed our short stay there very much. Would definitely return. Thank you for letting us check-out late. Cheers!
Tara and Michael attentive hosts. Their house is very cozy. It is nice to be. Wonderful atmosphere at home, clean and tidy. Loved the plot next to the house with oranges, lemons and a small fountain. Very happy with the trip.
Тара и Михаель внимательные хозяева. Их дом очень уютный. В нем приятно находиться. Замечательная атмосфера дома, чистота и порядок. Очень понравился участок рядом с домом с апельсинами, лимонами и небольшой фонтанчик. Осталась очень довольна поездкой.
I had a great stay! The house was cozy and in a convenient location. Tara and Michael were really accommodating hosts, and I wish I had more time during my stay to check out some of their recommendations of things to do in the area. They were great hosts and made sure I was comfortable - they had spare bathroom stuff (shampoo, body wash) which was great since I forgot mine, and even gave me extra blankets + a heater for my room (which, coming from polar vortex Chicago, wasn't necessary. But it was still appreciated!). Thanks again for everything!
Michael and Tara have a beautiful home. I felt comfortable in it as soon as I arrived. The area is fun and full of friendly locals! Go to the del Rey Kitchen for dinner and 90 West for drinks after if you'd like to meet them :) Also took their bike out for a ride on the Balboa trail to the beach. Had a wonderful first few days in Los Angeles!
Micheal and Tara's comfortable place was a home away from home! They were very inviting and helpful, offering restaurant suggestions in the area (Del Rey Kitchen was delicious!) and letting us use their bikes. Their house was also very convenient and accessible to many locations and was very clean and tidy. Michael and Tara were such wonderful hosts, we would not hesitate to stay there again and would recommend them to anyone. Thanks again Michael & Tara for an awesome week! Enjoy the holidays with family!!
Just a great experience overall, private bathroom, house very clean and very nice decorated, easy and safe parking in the street,
Tara and Michael were excellent hosts, they always had very nice details and tried to make me feel confortable at home. Definitely a place to stay.
Clean and comfortable. Charming and helpful hosts. Would return.
Lovely place and great hosts! Highly recommended!
My Stay at Tara & Micheal was fantastic.They were very accommodating and even let me keep my luggage at their place well after checkout time. When I'm back in LA I will definitely stay there again. Simon
This place is a wonderful. Tara and Michael are both very kind. I enjoyed the peaceful backyard ambiance as I wrote my thesis and the front yard to do yoga. The house is centrally located to the beach and Santa Monica. I am sure I will be back again.
