Lillian is a great host, she was very friendly and recommended some great places to see and eat. The cottage was perfect for what we needed and really convenient to get to the beach and Abbott Kinney blvd with all its boutique shops and cafes. I will definitely stay again.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay in Lillians cozy guest house. Cozy is indeed what it is. The bed is fine, the shower is warm and there is even a little kitchen with fridge and stove. Upon arrival we were welcomed by Lillian. She showed us around the guesthouse and gave some good tips for restaurants and interesting places. We were surprised by the neighbourhood, which actually feels like a village where neighbors greet each other. The locations is pretty good as well, just 20 minutes walking from Venice Beach. All together a great place to stay a few days to explore Venice and LA.
Lillian was a very accommodating host and had the loveliest little cottage. The location is in a prime area and in a very safe neighborhood. I would definitely stay with Lillian again!
We had a great time staying at Lillian's little guest house! It had everything we needed. The shower is amazing. It's close to everything and it was surprisingly quiet. I thought that parking was going to be a problem, but we were able to find street parking pretty close to the house everyday. Lillian was a great host as well. We really enjoyed meeting her beautiful cats and chatting with Lillian.
We had a great stay at Lillian's place. We found it ok using Google maps and it was nice to meet Lillian when we arrived as she has useful tips for the area. The guesthouse was exactly as described, cosy and comfortable. Lillian left water in the fridge, beach towels and the small kitchenette was really useful. I even left a pair of earrings behind and Lillian is arranging getting them to me. Thanks again!
Lillian was an awesome host! She had left the keys for us thinking she might not be around. But she was there to great us and give us a tour. She is awesome!
