Yvonne's place was great, and the communication with her and her husband was quick, comfortable, and easy.
Yvonne was communicative about our arrival, and she was very helpful when we needed a little extra help with something at the end of our trip. The house is lovely and warm with a beautiful collection of trees and bushes surrounding the front yard.
Place looks just like the picture, tastefully decorated, very comfortable. Good location, within walking distance to Abbot Kinney Street which is a very cool street with lots of great shops and restaurants if you haven't been there. We loved our stay.
This is certainly an oasis. (And a well situated and equipped one at that) After a week of trains and planes, Yvonne's place was like a balm. Yvonne is a good host, allowing me to leave my bags at her place before check in time while I explored the local area.
The bike rental is particularly good and I was able to see some great sights this way.
All in all, a very good stay. Thank you
We loved our visit to Yvonne's little Apt. It was clean and comfortable and everything we needed was there. The neighborhood is convenient to many areas and there were some nice places to walk to. Try going down Rose St for lots of cute neighborhood experiences. It was nice having our own little private yard to use. The bed was comfortable. I cant think of anything that was lacking and the price was very reasonable. Thanks, Yvonne
This place is beautiful. It is exactly as described in the pictures. The checking in/checking out and other arrangements couldn't have been more professional. We had a lovely time and you can't beat the proximity to the ocean and the Getty Museums. So much more pleasant that staying in a hotel. Yvonne's place is the cleanest that I have ever experienced and a great place to stay!
My friends liked Yvonne and Steve's place very much. They were pleasantly surprised by the largeness of the rooms and the "lovely haven" of the spacious, beautiful garden with its lemon tree. Even the bathroom is large and very nice. They thought it was very clean, and they recommend it. I dealt with Steve, who was lovely in every respect. Yvonne and Steve kindly let my friends stay past check-out time, which they very much needed and appreciated.
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.
