Interaction with Guests
Our interaction with guests varies a lot, depending on our schedules at the time they are staying with us, as well as on the guests' interest in interacting. There are times when guests come and go without even meeting us, and other times that we become very friendly and even eat some meals with them. Mostly, we've found that guests prefer to be fairly private, and we respect their wishes.

A peaceful oasis. Definitely recommend! Susan was warm and welcoming and made my daughter and I feel at home. Beautiful light filled and private space, with fantastic backyard.
It was a great experience. This guest home is ideally located in lovely Brentwood, close to the upscale shopping on Montana Ave, and minutes from the beach. The guest home is light and airy, spacious, comfy beds, and peaceful. Susan couldn't have been nicer. Extremely gracious and helpful. (she even re-scheduled her gardner for our privacy). We can highly recommend this accommodation.
Great place in a beautiful and peaceful area. Susan was very kind and allowed me to rest at her place as I arrived early. The guest house is very clean, well decorated, airy and peaceful. The neighborhood is very quiet and well located. I took uber taxi to get around and had no issue finding them at any time.
