Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to share with you the fact that everyone truly enjoyed their stay at your property. It is a lovely home, very open and welcoming. We were all impressed with your art work, they are simply fantastic, you are a very talented artist.

Our vacation in LA was awesome, so awesome we want to come again next year.

Thank you so much for allowing us to share your home. We are hoping to stay there again next year. My brother in-law wouldn't have it any other way!

He stayed on the roof deck taking hundreds of pictures of the scenic views!

Clean, beautiful view. Very nice area.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the area and the view. Plenty of room for our family. Beds were comfortable. Could use some more fans. Only 1 air condition unit. Front door and side door a little hard to get into. Other than that, we recommend this for your stay.

Comfortable and quiet with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Beds were very comfortable and kitchen fully equipped. I love that everything opens to the outdoor living areas and enjoyed all the original artwork by the owner. Everything worked well however the plumbing in one bathroom is slow to drain - plumber was called same day to ensure there were no issues.

Very beautiful area close to restaurants, beaches, and shopping.

The view and location are great, the plumbing not so much.

  • 3 of 5

One of the bathrooms was plugged not once but twice. Water backed up into the shower and bath tub. It got taken care of but our impression was it has been a problem in the past that was not fully resolved. The same thing happened a second time on our last day, luckily no one needed to shower. View and location were great and everyone was able to sleep in a bed so it did the job. If your looking for fancy digs, I don't recommend, but if you want something functional with a fantastic view it's great.

Spectacular views and super accommodating host!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived from nz with our two young children very early in the morning and met the manager onsite, he was totally at ease with us coming early because everybody just needed to sleep. The house feels like a home, plenty of space for each bedroom and great living areas. But of course the best part of this house is the position. An epic view and the outdoor lounge was a complete winner. We would hire this again in a heartbeat! Thanks Paul!

Great view and relaxing property

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here while in California for a wedding. It's a nice location, in the hills with a view of the ocean up to Santa Monica. It's only about 5 minutes down to the nearest grocery store, and maybe 10 to Will Rogers Beach. The outdoor area was wonderful for enjoying the California weather. Unfortunately it was nearly 100 each day we stayed, which is unusual, and there was only an air conditioner in one room. There's a bonus deck on top of the house that gives even more impressive views. Lots of outdoor space to enjoy. There is a garage for 2 cars, and street parking seemed a bit limited. Great value!

The location and views were outstanding. But the house and furniture need updating and tlc.

  • 3 of 5

I have to agree with other reviewers that the best part of the home was the patio views. House was very comfortable as far as location and size but does need updating and definitely cleaning. The bathrooms were clean but the floors and kitchen were not. Mostly the kitchen drawers were very dirty. No working ice maker! Property has AC window units which we were not expecting but quite frankly the weather was so nice that we had no need for AC. But the house did have a musty odor despite the use of candles and well ventilated. Probably from the old mostly non functional furniture. Front door knob needs to be replaced.....we were almost locked out one night.
