Yvonne and her husband were very accommodating. It's a nice house with all the necessities and a little extra. The beach is within walking distance. A small grocery store and tons of food options are walk-able in less than 2 minutes. This place is great!
This was the perfect spot for a weekend away! Centrally located 10 minutes from Venice Beach and Santa Monica pier, it was the perfect launching point for our adventures. But enough about the location, the home itself was exactly as described - very clean and well appointed. I would definitely recommend this location to others!
A lovely place, even better than the photos. Excellent location especially if you don't have a car as there is a bus stop close by which takes you to Santa Monica or to LAX for $1! This was our first booking on Airbnb and it was a great experience. Thanks Yvonne.
Yvonne was amazing, lovely host and lovely place. Would definitely stay again!
It was a very comfortable experience. We were having our place in LA fumigated and decided to get to the coast for a few days. There were bagels and orange juice and tea available. The place seems recently renovated, and the bed was comfortable, and the double pane windows provided a very quiet night's sleep. The bathroom appears to have new fixtures and was very clean.
perhaps in that this is our first air bnb, we assumed we had the entire place to ourselves. In principle that's relative. I was surprised to learn that we were only sequestered to one side of the building, and on the other side of a door the host and others were staying. Unfortunately it didn't feel "private", as we could hear their conversations and felt obliged to keep our voices low all the time when together. The smell of cooking heavily permeated the residence in the evenings.
I didn't know that kitchen wasn't included, but perhaps that was something I had simply expected and will know next time to check for as an amenity, even in "entire home" listings. It would have clued us into the nature of the arrangement.
Be aware, there is no driveway to park, and be comfortable leaving our car on the street at night. parking is problematic on wednesday and thursday afternoons. Also, people do come and go through the yard from the main house to exit through the "private" entrance.
Overall, a nice experience for the price. We slept well and were only a walk from some nice restaurants.
This is the second time we have stayed in Yvonne's accommodations and enjoyed it so much once again. Everything was clean and comfortable while providing extras such as coffee, fruit and bagels. Thank you so much and we hope to come back again in the near future.
Yvonne's place was great, and the communication with her and her husband was quick, comfortable, and easy.
We are a traveling family, we love to explore new places and meet new people. Originally from England Steve (my husband) and I traveled extensively before settling down in LA 25+ years ago. Our 11 year old twin sons also have the travel bug, although because of school and time most of our traveling is in the US and we mainly go camping.
We love having friends over for dinner (I love to cook) or just to hang out with us.
