The proprietor Tricia is a lovely human being, and it shows in the care of her garden and her quirky, fun art that permeates the outdoors and indoors of the casita. Truly a dream come true for me and my daughter. Comfortable bed and sofa bed. Lovely kitchen. Functional bath with a shower with a seat (which as an older person with mobility issues I very much appreciated). If anything I swam too much--it was so easy to do. I paid to heat the pool as it was cold when we stayed, and the water was still cool, but good for laps and for someone who truly exercises in the water. Lots of fun swimming around the permanent snake guest (pool cleaning machine) which was like having a friend to swim with. Never quite knew what he would be up to. ;) This is a deep pool so the shallow portion is minor in comparison to the whole. The hot tub is a treat with the strongest jets I have ever experienced (having only been in public hotel hot tubs). Going into it prior to after swimming and made swimming in cool weather more enjoyable.

Cannot say enough good things. I want to come back. If I lived in LA I would stay here as a 'stay-at home' vacation. My only caution is please do not stay in this place when I plan to. :)

Happy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Best stay ever! Location was superb and worked perfectly for the area that we spent on our vacation. The owners made us feel welcome. If you want to enjoy the feeling of Asian culture with a mixture of Salvador Dali, this is the perfect place. The casita had feeling of being in a private bungalow. The tile and wood floors, amazing art, color and floor plan created the perfect blend for relaxation and privacy. The French doors lead out from master bedroom to swimming pool. So cool! I can honestly say that I spent many hours just decompressing. We highly recommend this for those you who want to get away from the stress of city life. We loved our time spent here.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I was in town to visit a new grandbaby. I needed a place we could comfortably gather, and a place to stay connected. This location fit the bill. The place is spacious and open, with charm.

We enjoyed our time, somehow the days did not seem long enough.

We had a couple questions, which were promptly answered. The pool was great.

Parking is on street...which is no problem. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. I unloaded in the driveway (cart available) and moved. Easy...

I can only hope that it is available on my next trip.

Thanks for your willingness to share your "casita".
