My stay at Carrie's place was ideal. She and her son Kyle made sure my stay was comfortable and my needs were met. The guest house was roomy, well appointed, sparkling clean and charming. My family hopes to return again and again.
Staying with Carrie was the best. I relocated to LA and needed a long stay; she was incredibly accommodating. Carrie was very kind and fair. Carrie always answered my calls or texts. Because of her I saved so much money. It was really nice to stay with her and meet such a pleasant person.
Her studio was the right size for me and had everything I needed. It was clean and well kept. Her TV has a zillion channels and the WiFi signal was perfect. There was a dedicated parking spot for me right outside the gate to my place.
For any people coming to west or South LA contact Carrie. Carrie's place in El Segundo is the best because it's a beach community, it's next to the airport, and in a great central location. You have quick access to the freeways, so you are a 20 minute drive to Santa Monica and 30 minute drive to Long Beach.
For those couples looking to have a nice affordable vacation, stay with Carrie. You are a 10 minute bike ride to Manahattan Beach. El Segundo is a Mayberry town with a charming downtown. There are many great places to get food/drinks within 5 mins walking distance. Plus she's on the last street from the beach. You are just a 5 min walk down the hill to the beach and bike/walk path. Carrie let my girlfriend and I borrow her bikes, it was so much fun. I will stay here every time I came back to So Cal.
For any people moving here for the companies near El Segundo, you really need to talk to Carrie about staying at one of her places for short/long term.
The place was nice, and Carrie and her son were helpful & pleasant.
Unfortunately, we won't be going back because of the following issues:
They gave us the wrong key, which left us arriving back at the apartment at midnight the first night knocking on their door until they woke up so we could get the correct key. To her credit, she refunded us $10 for this.
Our car was blocked in 5 minutes after arriving by their guest. Apparently parking is in the alley in back.
While the room was furnished (nice big bed!), the dresser was completely full and the closet was 1/2 full with no free hangers (though Carrie brought some when requested).
The internet was down the entire time we were there. Carrie and her son did repeatedly try to fix it, but we were without internet pretty much the whole time (it worked once for a couple hours before going out again). This issue alone put a big damper on our already-full trip, as we needed to visit a coffeehouse every time we needed to communicate with the outside world (AT&T cell data reception is also very bad in the apartment, though of course this is not Carrie's fault).
Neighborhood was pleasant & safe.
I rented the studio for myself, but the1 bedroom apartment freed up so I ended up renting that instead and my sister and her husband stayed there instead of at my apartment as originally planned. They had a great time there... the place was beautifully maintained, clean, and within walking distance of some great restaurants, parks and the beach. They always had somewhere to walk to with my little niece.
Carrie was a wonderful host; I'm so grateful she let me know about the one bedroom and was flexible enough to allow us to swap without extra hassle or paperwork. Plus, my sister and her family are wiling to visit me more often, now that they know such a cool place to stay exists!
My brother-in-law adds: "Nice place. Easy walk to downtown. Quiet neighborhood."
The room was very beautiful, with a big comfy bed. Very private with lovely accommodations. Carrie was very welcoming and so were her two little dogs. The neighborhood was very nice. We felt very safe and everything was close by. The beach, food, and entertainment was just a walk away. We would love to stay again sometime in the near future. I highly recommend this stay!
What a sweet little place! Carrie (and her son) provided a friendly and informative welcome. The location was perfect for me, close to the beach and town, but very quiet and private. The bottle of wine was a very nice touch!
