Lovely apartment, just as it shows in the pictures. It is clean, cute, and it distills great energy! I spent very happy days, and the location is great. Walking distance to UCLA and good nearby shops. Regina is the greatest host: super helpful, answered questions/doubts immediately and even joined me to have a drink at a very cool place. Sorry, Dorothy, from The Wizard of Oz, but yes, there is a place like home: Regina's lovely retreat! Will definitely come back next time I'm in L.A.
A wonderful, cozy little home. Lots of thoughtful touches, including great coffee and tea awaiting guests and even some fresh grapes.
Regina was very helpful and responsive and well organized for hosting. It was the perfect L.A. hideaway for a weekend.
Loved this place, was very comfortable. It wasn't huge, but had everything I needed and was beautifully decorated. Regina was extremely sweet and caring, making sure I had everything I needed. I would definitely stay here again. Neighborhood is very convenient, close to mall and busses, easy to get around from here.
Regina was a fabulous host! Everything I could have needed or wanted was waiting for me at the Lovely Retreat studio. She was fully stocked with extra toiletries, stationary, extra towels, blankets and healthy snacks. There is ample storage space for all of your gear in the studio. Lots of cabinets and drawers.
The studio is private and not connected to other units. You are high up above the ground and have your own little balcony with chairs and lighting. The location is perfect. Great neighborhood and easy access to all LA has to offer. The studio had both heat and air, full private bath and a kitchen area. The bed is super firm and the studio is artistically adorned with retro pop art and a bold (but not dizzying) color scheme.
Regina's communication and specific instructions were the best I've experienced, yet! There is just no way to get confused or lost if you follow her instructions. I will definitely stay here again!
A beautiful retreat! This is a gem very quiet and zen. I enjoyed my stay of 2 days. Close to everything, I was moving from NYC to LA and was very busy and did not have a chance to meet with Regina however she was very kind and accommodating to my needs. I appreciate everything. I booked on short notice and she was happy to host me. Her place is close to everything. I would recommend her place 100%. Thank you so much sweetie sorry I didn't get to meet with you. One note I would like to add you can tell she takes great pride in her apartment. It makes for a very relaxing stay.
What a lovely retreat! Very cosy and very personal. I was always looking forward to coming "HOME" in the evening. I loved the fact that the apartment is super central, just in the middle between West Hollywood and Santa Monica. And Regina is the PERFECT host. She's super friendly and she always responds immediately. Great apartment, great host!
Cute little studio in solid, safe neighborhood. Perfect for single person stay.
Regina is as lovely as her apartment! She was so helpful and friendly. My stay was perfect; the studio is in a very convenient location. I highly recommend!
Regina's place is in a great location and it is as reviewed by others. It is a bit small but plenty big enough for 1-2 people--especially as there's a nice private patio just outside her door. She is extremely punctual about returning messages and is an excellent communicator. I would recommend her place without hesitation!
Staying at Lovely Retreat was an absolute joy! Regina really put forth the effort so that my stay was not only pleasant, but special. The place is spotless and the decor is charming. It is located in a great spot, just a few blocks from the Westfield mall, which has great places to eat and a movie theater. The Santa Monica Pier is just a short bus ride away.
Regina is a very pleasant and positive person and she is good at making sure questions are answered. Everything I needed to know about getting in, logging onto her wireless, operating the hearter, etc. was in her e-mails or on a cute summary left on her desk.
The next time I come back to LA I will look forward to staying at Lovely Retreat again!
Awesome guest! Pleasant to communicate with, left flat tidy and organized. Would happily host again. Highly recommend.
I just loved Regina!! Seriously a perfect and thoughtful guest. She was kind enough to bring me some Starbucks goodies when she arrived, and a sweet thank you note when checking out! She stayed for a week, so I enjoyed our chats and getting to know her a bit. I hope to be a guest of hers when I go on a L.A. vacation, hopefully that will be soon! I really hope she gets to visit again and enjoyed her stay in Dallas!
Regina M is a wonderful hostess with the mostess. I spent the weekend in May 2011 and a week another time in this beautiful space and it was really peaceful and had all of the amenities of home. The decor is magnificent and feels like a five star hotel room. The bed is comfortable and the host was super. I would definitely recommend this beautiful place for anyone looking to have a retreat-like experience in the LA area. It is on convenient bus lines to and from downtown, Beverly Hills, UCLA and Westwood, as well as Santa Monica. Very easy to get to from LAX or the 405 freeway. Very well priced for what you get.
