Well... where can I start? It's somewhat hard to offer a review, because I had such an amazing time staying at Shannen's. I stayed for 4 weeks to work at the Huntington Library nearby. I find her house and the room I stayed as lovely as pictures indicate, and she and her husband have been always kind, considerate, and friendly. The bed I used was better and more comfy than I thought. She was very responsive when we exchange messages prior to my visit. This was the first time I used Air B&B, but I felt very comfortable throughout. I can recommend her place without reservation.
Shannen and her fiance were very friendly and accommodating during my stay. It's nice to deal with nice people like them when you first move to the LA area. The house is exactly like in the pictures and in a nice area with many things near by. Would stay in her cottage again if I needed a place to stay for a few days.
Shannen and her fiance, Ting, were great! The house in on a side street away from traffic, which is nice. I had everything I needed including access to a washer and dryer, and an iron.
I'm 5'11" and the bed suited me just fine - comfortable mattress and sheets too.
Great place and great people. I'd stay here again.
Very nice people and very nice place! Great location too! Yes I recommend it! The bed is not very suitable for 6-foot tall and over, but it was O.K. for me. No problems at all - and a very beautiful place.
It's a lovely and clear place. Definitely recommend!
an amazing place and even better host. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a quiet place to work and call as home while in the LA area. quiet, convenient, and very functional. just a great place to go back to at the end of the day.
A million thank yous to Shannen for opening up her charming home to stay at! Her home is adorable and immaculate. I ended up being out of the house a lot more than I originally thought, but it was so relaxing and lovely when I did stay there. Shannen is a also a completely lovely lady, very charismatic and caring, and very helpful. and I am glad I got to talk to her a little bit. I greatly enjoyed my stay here, and would recommend it to anyone seeking a haven to come back to after the hustle and bustle that is so prevalent in California.
It was a pleasure to meet Shannen and stay in her lovely cottage home. She was delight and wonderful host. Her home is beyond cute with lovely lush tropical gardens front and back. She made me feel right at home and I will certainly stay with her again when I'm in the area. Great time.
The reviews are legit. Shannen's home is a charming French-country cottage. I was a guest for about a week. The house is clean and it's pet-free/ smoke-free. The block is quiet & safe. I was able to work in the mornings, then zip out for the rest of my day around LA. Shannen is a wonderful host, dedicated to making the stay as comfortable as possible.
One reviewer commented on the size of the guest bed. I am near 5'11" and was quite comfortable.
The location is great, partway between the 210 and 10 freeways. Also, there's a 7-11 a quarter-mile down from the house. Past there is a Kohl's and not much farther away is a Trader Joe's. You'll be in good hands. Shannen is very good with driving directions for anything else you might need to find.
For anything else, just ask her. She responds quickly.
Shannen is very friendly and hospitable and the place is great. Nicely furnished, very clean, on a private quiet street. It is far from downtown L.A., but there are lots of good restaurants, shopping places and attractions (downtown Pasadena) nearby.
The only warning: if you're tall, say over 6'1" you might have a hard time fitting in the guest bed. :)
