About Ronit Barak

My husband Pini and I love to travel all over the world,and most of the times we prefer to stay at nice B&B, so- once all of our 3 daughters left the house, got married, moved away, (thankfully not too far away... ) we decided to convert part of the empty guesthouse into a guessed it- a B&B. We both love to meet people, cook and host. Seems perfect to me! Hope you'll enjoy your suite as much as I love setting it up!

Ronit Barak purchased this house in 1994

Wonderful cottage and hosts

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the "Life is Good" BnB. Ronit and Pipi were gracious hosts and their dog, Pixie, was gentle and friendly. The cottage (pool side room) was beautiful filled with lovely art and every amenity you could wish for. Ronit's breakfasts were FABULOUS. We sat at the pool side table and enjoyed our breakfast in the fresh air. The home is located is a great place with access to museums and to Universal Studios. I would very happily return to this home.

Where do you live?

Ronit was warm, hospitable and a great cook! We very much enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Ronit was very enjoyable to deal with from initial contact to end of our time at her B&B. She was quick to respond to emails, her B&B was clean and cozy and perfect for our family of three. Breakfasts were amazing and she generously shared her knowledge of LA. The neighbourhood was central to LA experiences such as Universal (20 minutes), Santa Monica (30 minutes) and Hollywood (30 minutes). Would definitely recommend if you want your stay in LA to include a home-like vibe.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I made a very quick trip to California for the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl game. This B&B was perfect for our trip. The location was ideal for our needs. They are close to many great restaurants, it was an easy trip into Santa Monica where we hoped on a tour of LA, Hollywood and Beverly Hills. It was also a perfect distance from Pasadena.

Ronit was AMAZING!! She stayed in contact with us and offered much help as I planned a whirlwind trip. She was awake to greet us even though we arrived really late to the B&B. She provided an wonderful breakfast for us and even packed some muffins for us the morning of the parade since we had to leave before the sun came up. I highly recommend staying with Ronit and Pini.

When we get to come back to the area, I will definitely contact Ronit.

Charming Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The private suite was comfortable and well appointed with everything you could think of, including fresh fruit and flowers! Ronit could not have been more welcoming and friendly. Her home cooked breakfasts were excellent, and being able to choose what we would like to eat each day was a plus. I have a gluten allergy and Ronit made it possible for me to have a full meal every morning! We will definitely be returning on our next trip to L.A.
