Love this place! It was my second time staying here and I will continue to stay here whenever I visit LA! So wonderful, so peaceful, so perfect...
Wonderful, quiet, well-kept neighborhood. Cute, well-appointed and comfortable bungalow situated in a beautifully landscaped backyard. The host was very welcoming and checked back frequently to make sure that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The room had a very interesting library and the host provided directions and menus to the more popular area restaurants.
Such a wonderful location and beautiful space! It was so peaceful and magical! LOVED the zen garden and pond. Dawn and her husband were amazingly helpful and kind! I can't wait to return!
Dawn welcomed me to her lovely garden and guesthouse as I "checked in." She was kind, gracious, and checked in with me often to be sure I had all I needed. The cottage and gardens were beautiful, the bed very comfy, and the kitchenette very useful. It was clean, bright, and overall delightful. The neighborhood was beautiful, safe, and quiet despite being close to the airport. The location was about 2.5 miles from the beach and close to a lot of wonderful amenities. I will gladly stay in her cottage again!
Dawn's garden guest house was just what I had hoped for: private, charming and in a wonderful neighborhood. She made me feel both welcome and totally free to come and go throughout the day. The location is great--it seemed to be near all of my meetings scattered around LA and I could walk to cool coffee shops and bistros. I would love to stay there again.
A great place to stay. The place and the area are nice and with no noise. The parking is very easy (unusual for that part of the city). Dawn and her husband are very helpful. When I will come back I will try again if is not already booked.
Perfect experience from start to finish. Very comfortable bed and breezy space. I loved the quirky vintage stylings. The setting of the guest house is great, in a tranquil and lush yard. Total ease and helpfulness over everything. Would definitely recommend highly.
