Lauren’s family is amazing, I have had some very strange Airbnb experiences .However, Lauren’s dad Tony and the rest of her whole family made it so warm and wonderful. I felt lucky to have chanced upon such amazing people. My faith was restored. Thanks for the sanctuary!

Great place in a lovely part of town. There are many great local restaurants and shops very close by. The hosts were amazing and very welcoming. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay outside of LA.
