This is a fabulous place. High quality lodgings for a reasonable price considering how centrally located it is. It's easy to get to the beach, center city, Hollywood, all the places you would want to see. The guesthouse is very cozy, inviting, and private. Vivian was a great host, leaving us a welcoming fruit basket as well as other goodies. Definitely rivals most hotels I have stayed at. She was very flexible with our arrival schedule and once she handed over the keys we stayed out of each others' hair. I would totally recommend and would definitely stay again.
Great neighborhood, very accommodating and friendly host, Vivian, with a clean and pretty cottage.
Wow! We just loved Vivian's guest house. Every thing was considered and we truly enjoyed a wonderful guest experience. Thank you!!!
Great little guesthouse on the westside. Perfect for solo travel or a couple.
Vivian's guest house is lovely; located on a charming street, in the Mar Vista hills, there's often a breeze coming right off the ocean. Parking is easy — and though you feel far away from it all (which is not a bad thing), you're not. Shops, foods, coffee, even the beach are quite close.
I did not get a chance to enjoy Vivian's backyard, sadly. Her gated property is charming.
Great for a quick stay. No kitchen, though there is a microwave and plenty of cable TV.
Vivian is delightful and there if you need her.
Great compact living with lovely garden and good connections to everywhere in the city. The guesthouse was clean with nice towels and a comfortable bed and also the minifridge was a big plus. Vivian was a lovely host and we would love to come back some day!
Vivian was a great host, the place was clean and as described. In a nice neighborhood and in a beautiful garden, felt very comfortable there with our family while on business in Santa Monica.
The gardens were amazing! Truly an oasis and a beautiful escape. The area felt very safe, too, and was close to LAX and Venice, while also a quick 5 minute drive from the 405 or I-10. The apartment was a nice size for a couple, with a pleasant living area/bed alcove. The bathroom was a little oddly configured, but equipped with a washer/dryer and compact fridge. Vivian was very gracious and extremely responsive to any request. The place was very private and quiet, though there was a little bit of street noise on occasion. However, we just ran the dyson fan at night which provided pleasant white noise and drowned out any outside noise. All in all, we enjoyed our stay very much and were extremely impressed by the gardens, which were incredible.
I had a great stay at Vivian's guesthouse! She makes the place warm and inviting, with plenty of amenities that you typically don't find with Airbnb. The place is in a great, quiet part of Santa Monica that provides easy access to anywhere you'd like to go in LA. I won't hesitate to come here again. Staying here was a highlight of my trip. Great outside area that you can use, lots of plants around make for a relaxing atmosphere.
Our stay at Vivian's guesthouse was even better than we expected (and we had high expectations from the pics and positive reviews). The studio guesthouse had everything we needed plus more, like a lovely electric fireplace by the bed and complementary fruit and snacks. The private patio and the yard were beautifully landscaped. Vivian had great communication with us leading up to and throughout our stay. I loved the area and I would definitely like to stay there again in the future.
Thank you for taking such good care of our guesthouse, it was a pleasure to host you.
Vivian was the perfect guest! Sweet & communicative and got along great with the other travellers. I would definitely recommend her to you as a guest and would welcome her back anytime. Sheila
Vanessa and Diego were wonderful guests. They were quiet, respectful, and left the place in perfect shape. They were also very easy going about the fact that my bathroom sink got clogged the day before their arrival. I was so glad to have guests that were nice and low-maintenance! I didn't have the chance to talk to them too much but I hope they enjoyed their stay.
Vanessa was a great guest. She was very respectful and friendly. They left the house in perfect condition. She will be a great guest anywhere she goes.
