Mary was a wonderful host. She was very prompt in responding to questions and left detailed instructions. If anything, the house is even better than the pictures. The kitchen has everything you would want and is very spacious. The outdoor area is great for relaxing. The bedrooms had huge closets and the beds were extremely comfortable. My fellow guests loved how soft the sheets were. The bathrooms are modern and clean. The house location is great too. Short drive to the beaches and lots of great restaurants nearby (I suggest Tacomiendo if you're looking for huge portions of cheap Mexican food haha). I was a little worried it was too close to the highway, but the noise is very minimal. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and if I am in the area again I would probably stay at Mary's house.
We had a very easy time communicating with Mary both before our arrival and during our stay. We were two couples staying in the larger house and it is indeed larger than I expected in the photos. Everything was spotless and worked perfectly. It was great for two couples and could easily fit two more. My husband and I stayed in one of the two rooms that have a large bathroom in between so we had plenty of space and the other couple had the large master bedroom. We all had plenty of privacy but then could gather in the large kitchen and patio and we did and chose hang out there before and after our days of exploring. The location was ideal for us as we were going to UCLA, Santa Monica and then Pasadena so easy to do all three from here. Thank you Mary, we highly recommend your home.
The place was great & as described. Check in was easy, there was a bit of confusion about the keys, but Mary was very communicative and everything went very smoothly.
Had a great trip and would definitely recommend Mary as a host!
The stay was very pleasant. The house is very spacious with almost everything available for use. It was a bit shocking to find out that someone else was staying on s guesthouse which we share outdoor areas with. And the internet wife was very unstable but you told me that depending on the area i had to use a different wifi.
Wonderful home. Very clean and comfortable with all of the amenities one could hope for! The place is very conveniently located in West LA with good nearby Japanese (and other) food. Family-friendly neighborhood.
Mary was very responsive via text. For example, we couldn't figure out why the dryer door wouldn't close and she responded within seconds with the fix (turn the lint shield the other way).
We had a fantastic time at Mary's place. The house itself is wonderful. Very spacious, clean, and well maintained. Mary made herself available to help out with any issues we encountered. We made use of the just about all the amenities the house had to offer and we felt right at home. I would highly recommend this location.
Mary's house was just as represented on the site and she was very responsive to our questions and/or needs. We were concerned about the location being close to a freeway intersection but it was quiet and in fact very conveniently located. The house is lovely and fully equipped in every way. We were 6 people and there's plenty of room. Can't imagine staying anywhere else on our next visit.

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.
