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.
Carin en Ed waren heel behulpzaam en gastvrij. Alles was net zoals beschreven in de advertentie, gelegen in een heel rustige en veilige buurt. Phebe is een schattig hondje. Het was een prachtige eerste ervaring met airbnb. Als we terug in de regio van Los Angeles zouden zijn, verblijven we graag terug bij jullie. Ik kan Carin's huis allen maar aanraden aan iedereen. Bedankt voor de lekkere koekjes...ze waren overheerlijk.
Carin was a sweet and wonderful host. The house is beautiful, with a seperate lounge area, huge kitchen and even a swimming pool. The room we stayed in was very comfortable. Location was great for us, we managed to drive to Malibu and Hollywood quite easily. Would definitely recommend Carin's place!
I'm so glad I made the decision to book with Carin instead of a hotel. She and her friend Ed are lovely people and made me feel right at home. The house is beautiful and my stay was very comfortable. Although I didn't have time, the pool and sauna were also made available to me and Carin even baked cookies for everyone! I would definitely stay here again.
Everything about Carin is beyond spot on ! Her demeanour is truly enveloping ... So much so, this makes my 3rd stay ! I truly adore PHOEBE, her lovely little dog, and Carin's company ! It doesn't hurt that Ed is there, too ! Carin's home is truly our ' Home-away-from-Home ' ! The home baked cookies, welcoming of meals, the sound of Carin playing the piano ... It doesn't get more scrumptious than a stay with Carin ! The pool and jacuzzi are a complete highlight, as well ! Molly MJ, my little PUG, and I always have and always will, cherish our stays, with Carin, Ed and PHOEBE !
Carin was a fantastic host. She and her roommate could not have been more welcoming or accomidating. They made me feel like a friend visiting from out of town, rather than like a paying guest. The house is lovely, and I had full access to the kitchen, living room, and backyard (including the sauna!). Her neighborhood is safe and quiet, with quick acess to freeways, grocery stores, gas stations, and coffee shops.
Carin and her roommate are lovely people who met me at the front door when I arrived, and made me feel incredibly welcome. Such a great experience, I extended my stay with them!!
I had a wonderful stay. Carin was a great host and very accommodating I would stay again. Thank you
