About Mary Steele

I helped design and remodel the entire home in 2000 for myself and my family. I created a Jack and Jill Bath for my two children and a Master Bedroom Ensuite that is separate from the rest of the house. All materials and equipment are top of the line and the home is very comfortable. My kids are grown and I now live in Santa Barbara and come back to visit in between guests.

Mary Steele purchased this house in 2000

Why Mary Steele chose Los Angeles area

The location is excellent for visitors because it is so close to everything you would want to see in LA, yet there is plenty of street parking, and it is located in a family neighborhood with friendly neighbors and a great place to walk to Whole Foods, Starbucks, The Carving Board, Oops Sushi and many other restaurants and markets.

What makes this house unique

This home is great for small gatherings or spending time with friends or family. The outdoor patio is a comfortable outdoor space for eating, entertaining or just relaxing in the beautiful California sunshine!

Great family home

Wonderful home to share with family. Very well equipped kitchen gave us the option of eating in. Spacious master bedroom with lots of room to relax. Outdoor area for lounging was a favorite.

Absoutely delightful retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to call home for several days. The quietness of the neighborhood and especially the back patio area are just delightful, who would think of such a place so close to I-10 could be so refreshing. The owner was helpful in every way, answered all of our questions and I feel like she really cared that our stay would be just perfect in every way.

The spacious well decorated rooms were a soothing spa away from the intensity of Los Angeles, yet the many delights that LA has to offer are an easy distance away.

The kitchen is very well stocked with any type of cooking device anyone would need. Grocery stores, Whole Foods and Ralphs are just a few blocks away.

On and off street parking was never an issue.

Be prepared the moment you unlock the front door to ...be right at home....

Perfect location and perfect house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and daughter stayed at Casa del Mary and were so happy we chose this place. We lived in LA about 10 years ago and come back every year to visit friends. When I called Mary she was very pleasant and helpful in answering questions. She was also pretty quick on emailing back too.

The house has a great layout plan and a wonderful backyard. It accommodated all our needs. I loved how the master bedroom was separated from the other two bedrooms so we had privacy. We had a small BBQ with friends and the kitchen / garden patio worked perfectly. Everything was clean and all the items we needed for cooking were there. The beds and couch were very comfortable. The master shower was heaven! The street was safe and easy for our friends to find too.

I would say that the WIFI was pretty spotty so that made it hard sometimes. I mentioned to the owner there wasn't a DVD player (a must for a preschooler) but we made due. The owner wrote back and said it was a good suggestion for the future. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely Property

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect rental property for my family of 3 adult couples. The kitchen and master bedroom were very large. The additional 2 bedrooms were very nice sized and shared a bathroom. The location was perfect and offered easy access to shops, restaurants, and Santa Monica.

The owner, Mary, was very easy to work with. We exchanged several emails ahead of our visit. We had some questions once we were there and just communicated via text message.

I would definitely recommend this property.

Beautiful House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and worked out wonderfully for our group of 7. The location is very good and the house is well kept. Communication with the owner wasn't ideal - she didn't read my messages very carefully and sent me her wrong phone by accident.

Peaceful retreat yet conviently located

  • 4 of 5

We rented Casa del Mary including the guesthouse in back for a group of eight in connection with attending our son's wedding. Mary met us shortly after we arrived to explain everything, and the house was pretty much as I expected from the pictures. We really enjoyed having the backyard to relax in, which despite the home's proximity to the freeway, was very secluded and tranquil due to its high surrounding foliage, and comfy with its abundance of outdoor furniture. We also enjoyed the house's proximity to a tasty sandwich shop around the corner, The Carving Board, and to the numerous Japanese Restaurants on Sawtelle north of Pico. All things considered, Casa del Mary turned out to be a perfect venue for our stay.

It is very separate and private from the front house, but makes a great compound for larger groups. You can view a video on You Tube called Casa del Mary to see the layout
