Perfect for our family of six.

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculate. The accommodations were comfortable and up to date. Especially enjoyed the remodeled kitchen. I was a little worried initially about the safety and distance of Gardena but found it a reasonable drive to downtown LA and other locations. I felt safe and there were plenty of amenities near the home for our convenience. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Delightful back patio and yard. Easy to work with hosts. Can't beat the value. Recommend.

Very nice and clean exotic themed get-away!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the Oriental themed home, we made it our vacation theme and went to Chinatown, watched The Last Samurai, Charlie Chan and Unbreakable (based on Louis Zamperini that lived in Torrance, CA). The kids loved it...we made, egg rolls and stir-fry with coconut cookies and rice roll cakes! We love having a theme to learn about on our vacations for homeschool!

Mark was quick to answer questions and helpful with recommendations. We had plenty of room for us and our 6 kids. The immediate neighborhood was good with a Walmart very close. Loved the plentiful supply of shower supplies, laundry soap and paper goods!

A few things we would have liked to see available: DVD player (to play our vacation themed movies on), hot pads, mixing bowls, cookie sheets, more kitchen towels and a good can opener. I'm sure there are a lot of folks that will prefer to eat out, so many wouldn't need those items.

Overall, a great place, liked by all and will have lasting good memories!

Cozy home with quick access to free ways

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this home was lovely. It was close by a lot of restaurants (especially Japanese). We are like less than 5 min away from freeway. We had no issues getting to any of our destination. The owners respond quick if you have any questions.

Don't worry about bringing towels, or shampoo. They have most of those things ready for you.
