Lillian was prompt, kind and she thought of all of the details to make my time in her guest home seamless. It felt like home away from home. I would definitely stay there again.

Lilli was an amazing host. The house itself was exactly how she described it. Very cozy and with all the accommodations we needed. She even provided snacks, tea, coffee, toiletries, and beach towels. She was extremely friendly and gave us tons of recommendations for things to do around Venice as well as the rest of LA. She was courteous and unobtrusive, and she even sent us home with a couple of lemons from the trees in her back yard. Overall, this was an amazing experience and I highly recommend Lilli as a host.

Lillian's place was very nice! Walking distance to Abbot Kinney Blvd and Venice Beach and was in a really cool neighborhood. We had issues with ants and wifi, both of which she warned us about. The size of the guest house was a little smaller than what I was expecting but it worked for our short stay. Thank you Lillian!

Pictures of the room, taken by the airbnb photographer, are available on the page to look at. If one takes the time to look carefully you can see the size of the furniture in the room, see how it fits in the space, and judge how big/small the room is in relation to its surroundings . Sorry this did not meet your expectations.

Lillian's place is excellent: far enough from the crowds to have a quiet stay, but close enough to be able to walk to the beach and other attractions in Venice. The place is clean and has everything you need. My husband and I were also very impressed with all the tips, menu's and maps Lillian provided. We recommend her to everyone!

Lillian's guesthouse is the perfect spot for your Venice vacation. The guesthouse is located in the perfect spot -- a quick walk to the beach and the shops/restaurants on Abbott Kinney. The guesthouse itself was clean, comfortable, and full of great amenities. Lillian is a terrific host and a superb person. She is inviting, friendly, and totally cool. I really can't wait to return!
