The desciprtion was accurate and the place is very cozy. Mary is a great host. Although I never met her, she made herself available via email and phone. The gardens are perhaps the nicest feature and the bed is very comfortable.
A nice quiet retreat. Mornings and evenings with the doors open, the water fountain sounds, and the scents from the roses and jasmine blooming around the corner was very pleasant. Especially for the price. Mary was very responsive. Enjoyed nearby little Osaka.
Mary's guest house is as described on the site- clean and comfortable with most of the amenities you could need. For me, the best part was the very quiet, convenient location with easy parking. The space itself was a nice spot to have morning coffee, then return to at night for a glass of wine, a TV show, and a restful sleep.
Although we never met, Mary was a very attentive host via email with clear instructions for everything. Thank you, Mary.
My experience at Casa de Mary was absolutely awesome. Feels like home away from home. Really nice guest house on a quiet neighbourhood, near to Santa Monica and West LA. Very convenient! Thanks, Mary!!
The place was great! Very conveniently located to everything around Venice and Santa Monica. Clean and cozy, and everything needed for a nice weekend getaway
The host, Mary, was very responsive. She worte to me with suggestions for my trip and had very clear instructions on how to get into the house. When we were there the big house was being rented, we walked through their small dinner party but everyone was friendly. The listing was accurate. The yard is super cute and the space inside is large. I recommend this space for two people, three if you are willing to share a bed :)
The place was cute, quiet and clean. A perfect place for my weekend getaway. Highly recommended.

I love the outdoors, hiking, travel, yoga. I have a small dog (Schnauzer Yorkie mix) named Oliver. He is hypoallergenic, with skin and hair (like us) instead of fur, so no shedding or allergies. I own a hair salon in Santa Monica and enjoy meeting people from other parts of the world.
