Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • The location is really great since my main plan for my stay was to go to Universal Studios. There are also plenty of places to eat in the area. Serena was extremely nice and responded quickly throughout all our correspondences. Everything was as depicted in the pictures and the decor was very nice. It was great to leave the curtains open and look out towards the pool. It was also great to be separated from the main house. One thing to note is that the room is one of the two spaces part of the Guest House. Each space has it's separate entrance. Overall it was a beautiful place to stay at!

  • Serena's Guest House was fantastic! We were there for 2 nights and couldn't have been happier. The area is extremely beautiful, safe, and you can walk pretty much anywhere! It is right next to Ventura Blvd. which had tons of great shops, restaurants, and bars. We were in LA to do the standard tourist attractions for a day, and her house is perfectly located for that as well - at most a 10 minute drive anywhere. This was our first airbnb experience and we couldn't be happier. The privacy of the Guest House was great and the room was perfect. Nothing but great things to say!

  • Serenas guest house was perfect for us.The garden is beautiful decorated, very private and we fell in love with the area. Close to many Restaurants and bars and you can go easilly anywhere by car. Serena was always available for tips. Sadly we did`t meet her in Person but that only means that we had all of the privacy we needed. Thank you so much Serena. We`ll be back :-)

  • My son actually ended up staying there in my place and was very pleased. Serena had excellent communication with us and was most accommodating. Thank you!

  • Serena's guest house was comfortable, clean, accommodating and serene. It is in the back of her beautiful home, adjacent to the pool in her zen backyard. A nice place to sit, relax and have a cup of tea or coffee each morning. The home is in a wonderful neighborhood -- close and convenient to everything. The neighborhood felt very safe and parking was a breeze.

  • I really enjoyed staying at Serena's - a totally serene place to stay! It was the first time I used Airbnb and the experience could not have been better. The neighbourhood was very tranquil, and and Serena's place was super quiet, super clean, and Serena was a great host. I totally recommend it - and will definitely stay again when I go to Studio City again.

  • The setup for ease of coming and going without intruding on any part of the hosts life helped make my stay worry-free. Things that added comfort to my stay were the quite community this guest house sits in, the wonderful soft, white towels, bed linens were soft and smooth on a person's skin; TV, Internet connection, small fridge, hot pot for morning coffee; plus a short walk to the wonderful coffee at the Coffee Bean! I couldn't have chosen a more convenient place. I did not use the pool or the Jacuzzi but they make the setting very appealing and calming.
    Serena is friendly, accommodating, knows some history of her home and the area and is willing to share, which I found delightful.

  • We had a fantastic time in Serena's lovely guest house. The room itself is very comfortable. The location is well situated to shops and restaurants via foot, and to the highway and Hollywood/beaches via car. Serena and her family were very helpful and communicated well. We will definitely stay again if we're ever back in LA.

  • What can I say? I really love staying at this property. This was my second time and still love the feel of this cozy retreat. It feels like a mini retreat and appreciate the serenity and cozy feeling of this guest house. Serena is very nice as well as her husband. She's incredibly easy to get a hold of and is very responsive which I appreciate and actually adds to the whole feeling of staying at this property.
    I would stay here over and over and over again if given the chance.

  • This was my first time using Airbnb and could not have had a better experience!
    The room was cozy and clean, perfect for what my girlfriend and I needed for the weekend. Extremely relaxed atmosphere, "Serene" is the perfect word to describe this place tucked away in a nice little neighborhood. Our host Serena was excellent on all accounts. She gave us our privacy but was sure to let us know she was always available and was very warm upon meeting. 10/10 would stay again.
