We had a wonderful stay! Great reliable timely communication. Clean apartment, perfectly situatated. Great beautiful furniture. Everything you would need! Highly highly recommend.
Yvonne was a wonderful host and the space was lovely. Exactly as described!
We showed up at a perfect time, Steve was there to greet us upon arrival and gave us a great overview of the area which was very helpful! Great place and even better location.
I made a reservation for Yvonne's guest apartment spur of the moment due to a change in my itinerary and hoped for the best.
I was pleasantly surprised. Even though it did not have a full kitchen the microwave, frig and coffee maker where enough for morning breakfast and there is a Whole Foods a few blocks away where we purchased dinner in the evening.
Plenty of convenient parking, comfortable beds, and quiet. Nice bathroom, great shower. Close to the beaches.
I will try to book Yvonne's place again the next time I am in LA.
Staying at Yvonne's was absolutely wonderful. From the decor and spaciousness to the private yard where our dog could play to the tea selection and fireplace, for a party of two, with or without an animal, this is likely the best value that we've had with airbnb, thus far. We only stayed two nights, but by the second night it really did feel like a home away from home.
It's about one mile from Venice Beach sand (awesome quirky strangeness), right on the 1, and across the street from Ralph's and Rite Aid. I'd highly recommend this airbnb to anyone and, in fact, already have.
My gf and me have stayed her house for three days and that experience was the best ever I've done in the airbnb.
Her house is so clean, quiet, convenient to access to the Santa Monica and the Venice beach and so on. Everything is perfect!!
I'll definitely recommend that you stay this house if you try to find the place around the Venice and Santa Monica. I'll see you again!
This is my 6th Airbnb stay and my favorite. I second everything that's already been noted in the many reviews: gracious hosts who communicate promptly and easily, a fabulous, cozy space and wonderful extras (snacks in the fridge). Here are some accolades I didn't read below: the sunlight streaming in the many windows each morning is a gorgeous way to start the day. And being able to leave the front door open so your dog can go out at will is great (plus it's completely fenced in, so he's safe.). This space is a calming oasis in the middle of a fun, active area. Wurstkuche restaurant is fun: 20 some varieties of sausage, many beers and hip atmosphere.
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.
