Comfy Home

  • 5 of 5

Mark could not have been a better host, there if you needed him, a ghost if you didn’t. The house was comfortable for us 3 adults. The location was convenient, we drove all over Los Angeles. I would give thumbs up to staying again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us Justina. I Googled your name and noticed you do this for a living! Hence I now can sort of comprehend why you composed this completely nonsense fictional review! Falsifying information about the house is not acceptable. I thank you for staying with us nevertheless. I'm confident you enjoyed it. Mark

Comfortable, quiet, clean.

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I really enjoyed our stay at Mark's home away from home. Beds were surprisingly comfortable (I wasn't sure what to expect with the futons), full kitchen well supplied, showers great and everything very clean. Mark was easy to communicate with and helpful. The home was beautifully renovated in a simple Japanese style. The neighborhood was residential and close to the highways...not super special or anything but felt safe and settled. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a quiet, clean, comfortable stay. I would give this review 5 stars for the home itself and only give it 4 overall because the neighborhood wasn't just wonderful (but was ok!)

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate enough to stay at Mark's home for a week and I loved every minute of it! The house is beautifully maintained and I couldn't have asked for anything more during my stay. Mark was extremely responsive and I appreciated that he checked in on me to make sure that I was enjoying my stay and that I had found everything that I needed in the home. I come to the area every 3 months and will definitely be booking Mark's home again!
