Interaction with Guests
I live on the property and am there if needed and if not will leave you your privacy.
Everything is close yet very peaceful. Close to restaurants, theaters and fwy is minutes away. The air is clean with the sounds of birds chirping and many rabbits come through the garden.
Buses are a 10 minute walk and if I am available I will drive you to a nearby stop.
We are reasonable folks and expect you to be too. We're pretty relaxed and fun-loving, enjoy a good meal and the company of others.
We expect the place to be respected and left in good condition.
There is a fee for pets as if for an extra guest.
This was our first airbnb experience and we loved it. Carin's home was the perfect choice for us, centrally located to both LA and Malibu (our travel destinations). Her home is nestled atop a quiet neighborhood, and very private/hidden from street view. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and her home inside is both stylish and inviting. Our bedroom was very clean and tidy, and the bed was so comfortable!
Carin was a wonderful host. Very kind and made us feel right at home. And I can't forget to mention her cookies. Nothing better than coming home late at night to freshly baked cookies in the kitchen :).
We would recommend Carin's home to anyone. Her Airbnb room rental was a great experience for us.
The location of this house is quiet and the house is big and beautiful. The host family are very friendly, when we get in trouble they are glad to help us. The desserts she made are super delicious, especially the Lemon Bar. The dog here is pretty cute. We can do whatever we want in this house, just like in our own home. Hopefully we can come back here again.
Carin is an amazing person. very kind. very helpfull. her cookies are the best. amazing place to stay. quiet place and perfect for relaxing. very clean bed/bathroom. I had eveything I needed! Definetely going back the next time I am in LA.
Carin was very welcoming, and even stayed up late to greet us when we arrived!
I have stayed here twice now and will certainly return on future trips. Carin was a wonderful and accommodating host who goes out of her way to help her guests (while I was there she served as taxi for a guest without a car). The house is spacious with places both indoor and out (pool & sauna!) to relax after a long day at work.
