Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great stay. Very charming and relaxed. Loved the location and the bikes, and had everything needed for cooking a great dinner.

    April 2014
  • Perfect location, so close to Abbot Kinney and yet such a quiet and nice neighborhood. The apartment is exactly as expected and the blue house is indeed a beautiful place. The whole experience, from pre-arrival communication with Thea until in the end of our stay and beyond, has been 100% smooth, friendly and professional. I would recommend this place to anyone.

    April 2014
  • Thea has thought of everything for this apt. I was constantly amazed to discover games, a stroller, extra blankets, towels, sheets. I like that, even if I didn't need the items. Also there were food items like tea bags and condiments. You hate to buy a jar of mayo/mustard for a 5 day stay. Thea is a decorator and the place has a fun, hip vibe.
    We often had morning coffee and croissants at the French cafe nearby and happy hour at Zinga's--a few blks walk. A big plus for us were the funky beach bikes--. Comfortable bed, hot water, shops and the ocean nearby.
    This is a first floor apt in a 2 story house, your neighbors are the owners and they are quiet, however if you are sensitive to sound, this may not be for you.
    Good neighborhood--Good value.

  • Our stay at the Big Blue House was great! The apartment was clean, cheery, and very conveniently located. The bed was particularly comfortable which made catching up on jet lag hours very easy! Their neighborhood was very nice and parking was easy.We highly recommend staying at George and Thea's apartment.

  • Lovely flat with a perfect location near bars, shops, restaurants and the beach. Everything was there to make it a comfortable stay (towels, coffee etc) and we particularly liked the bonus of having the bikes to cycle up the beach to Santa Monica.

    Booking was also really easy and we were given all the information we needed in advance to make it a stress-free stay.

    March 2014
  • After a long 15hr flight from Australia with our 2 year son the Big Blue House was a perfect retreat for us for two nights. Although the apartment is on the smaller side, it had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and is as described. It even had a toddler mattress for our son and toys for him to play with. It's only a 20min walk to the beach and there is plenty to see and do in the area. We wished we could have stayed longer. George and Thea were great hosts, we would definitely love to stay again on our next trip back to the U.S!

    March 2014
  • Loved our one night stay. We booked last minute with the Instant Book feature and Thea was very responsive and answered all of my questions. The beach cruiser bikes that are included were our favorite part! Cruising down Venice Beach is a must when staying here. Would recommend.

    March 2014
  • Place was great for our family of three. Close to Abbott Kinney foodie zone. Great neighborhood.

    March 2014
  • We had a very pleasant stay in the lovely blue house. Perfect location near by the beach and one the coolest streets in LA, Abbot Kinney.
    We stayed there with three girls and it was nice to have a little kitchen and 'garden' which you wouldnt find in a hotel. Bathroom was very nice as well. Will defenitely go back when visiting LA again.

    March 2014
  • Everything was lovely, except there was no communication about checkout time so we found ourselves kicked out completely unsuspecting on our final day.

    Rebecca, sorry about the rush - I thought you had read the house rules about our noon checkout. I'll make sure to add that detail to my welcoming letter from now on. Hope to see you again soon.
