Yet another awesome stay at Smike's place! It was so convenient for me and was very comfortable. It's really the best place to stay while you're in LA!
The pool and poolhouse were beautifull! Asolutely gorgeous setting, really secluded and perfect for a relaxing break. would highly recommend for couples looking for a getaway.
A beautiful spot close to all the essential that Los Angeles has to offer!
Smike is THE perfect host!
The communication with Smike was smooth. He arranged a convenient check-in even though we had rather late arrival. Parking was also easy by the street. The guesthouse had all we needed and the pool was a nice extra. Smikes place is located in a perfect spot in LA and it is easy to reach all the main attractions.
We liked staying here for the weekend. It's a short walk to Beverly and Melrose Blvds, but what most stood out to me was the comfort we had in the guesthouse. It's a nice spot with fantastic bedding.
Smike's place is the best! We loved his room. Where do you get a perfectly decorated room, with a comfortable bed and a private pool? My son didn't want to leave anymore after a two nights stay. Smike is also a very nice person. He respects your privacy, but is helpful when needed. Go there!
We stayed in Smike's pool house for two weeks and it was the best holiday we have had in years. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. The outlook on to the pool is beautiful. Smike is a fantastic host. He provided everything we could possibly need from advice on the best places to eat; a fridge full of snacks; parking right outside the door and an endless supply of fresh, fluffy towels. I can't recommend this place highly enough. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Smike!!

Thanks Delaney...was a delight to have you stay here. I trust the trip back to New Zealand went well and you are settling in back home. Can't wait to watch your career soar. All the best, xxoo
We rented Smike's guesthouse to relax, for the week following my son's wedding, and that is exactly what we did!!! We swam, talked around his beautiful pool and walked to the many fabulous and close restaurants. We had a relaxing, great and beautiful week!!! Thank you, Smike!
Response from Smike:
Loved having you here.
Staying with Smike was the best decision we made the whole trip. Very good location, very nice backyard with a pool and a very kozy guesthouse with a big bed and very nice bathroom. Smike is a great host :) very welcoming and even invited us to his 4th July party wich was alot of fun. The only thing it is to "complain" about is that its no AC in the guesthouse, so at night it got a little hot, but it was livable :)
Smike's guest house is a hidden gem in Los Angeles! As a host, Smike was easy to communicate with and very accommodating; he was really great!! The guest house is beautiful, clean, close to a number of restaurants & shopping, and perfect for one or two people. The bed was very comfortable, the pool was warm and full of nice floaties that made my pool experience relaxing, and the room even had a nice additional fan that came in handy during a heat wave that was happening during my stay. My favorite part of the guest house was when the door was open, the fresh air would make its way into the room, and it would end up smelling of fresh flowers. If you get a chance to stay here, do it! I know I would:)
Smike is a fantastic person, with impeccable style & taste. We have traveled to places near & far, while his focus is always on design & architecture. Like Smike, his spaces feel warm, comfortable and safe.
I have stayed at his place in LA after only knowing him a short time, and felt completely at home.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Smike or his property to any like-minded, spirited individual with an interest in finding the most perfectly zen, yet modern and accessible space in LA.
