Bi-coastal California and Virginia
The studio is cozy and is situated within a larger home on a very nice property. All the comforts of home were provided. Location is near Montrose, which is a real gem of a community, with lots of restaurants and coffee shops. Definitely a great location with proximity to Glendale, Pasadena and Eagle Rock.
The guest house is adorable and in a great neighborhood. Walking distance to the main downtown with great restaurants and shopping. It was stocked with bedding, towels and paper products as well as basic kitchen necessities.
We really enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend it to anyone needing to stay in the area.
My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay at Melissa's house. This is really a place to be recommended! After a long day out, we just felt like home!! Well decorated and well furnished with everything you could ever need during your stay. The place looks exactly like the pictures. We didn't have the opportunity to meet Melissa, but her friend Emily did a great job as a host. We felt good in her company and she was ready to help if needed. Really you wont be disappointed!!
We enjoyed our stay in this cozy studio apartment. We will come back on our next trip to California.
My friend Marisa and I stayed for 5 days in Melissa's wonderful and cozy space. Everything about our stay was enjoyable and pleasant-- we would both highly recommend staying here to everyone. The private entrance was wonderful for us so that we did not disturb anyone as we made our way in and out whilst sightseeing and going out in the evening. The kitchen and refrigerator were perfect for preparing our snacks, breakfasts and lunches. The bed and linens were great (I slept on the pullout portion which was extremely comfortable). The overall space was immaculately clean and sheets/towels were fresh and cozy. We really felt like this was a home away from our homes immediately when we opened the door and throughout the duration of our stay! I did not actually get to meet Melissa, but she quickly responded to my initial inquiries, was very helpful and a pleasure to speak with on the phone. Marisa and I had amazing vacation entirely made possible by staying here!!! :-) We look forward to coming back and staying here again!!
Gorgeous pool house, just as advertised. Unfortunately, the host was away while we were there, but her daughter was on hand if we needed anything. We made good use of the included kitchen, but sadly ended up too busy to take advantage of all of the seating outside to relax. If we're ever in the area again, this place would be our top choice.
Oh gosh, where to start! Everything was great! The Guest House is great, the garden is great, the pool is great, the neighbourhood is great and the price is unbelievable! Emily is a sweetheart and a fantastic host while her mum's away. I wish we could have spent more time with Melissa, she's such a nice and warm woman. Really, not 1 negative point about this accomodation. Me and my friend stayed here for 2 weeks and almost cried when we left. I'll be back next year for sure!!!
All perfect! Thank you so much!
This is a very nice place to stay. You will have your own little house including all the amenities needed. You can relax in the garden/pool and watch the squirrels and hummingbirds or chat with the hosts if you like so. A quit and save place in a good neighborhood.
The hosts are very nice and will take care of you whenever you need it.
Within 10 minutes driving time you will find everything from different restaurants and fast food places to grocery stores, bakeries and a cinema.
There is also a village center with shops and banks. On weekends that area will be turned into a farmers market - nice.
If you are up for different entertainment it will take you about 20 minutes to the Universal Studios (theme park) or the NBC Studios (recording of the night shows - advanced ticket reservation needed).
You can also check out Hollywood (20 - 30 minutes to get there) with a lots of stuff to do or drive up the mountains or go to the beaches (30 to 45 minutes).
So, if you need a home base - this is the place to stay.
Beautiful and very accomodating! Melissa is a great host. Making plans to stay again!
