Very clean and comfortable home with a unique atmosphere!

  • 5 of 5

First off I am a japanese martial arts instructor / practitioner. The chance to stay in a home with a Japanese theme was something I couldn't pass up! I found the beds in the tatami room very comfortable.

Overall the house was well laid out and suited our visit. The neighborhood was also nice, quiet and felt very safe. The first night we got there we did have an issue with the heat and the hot water. The owner took care of things immediately and even came by himself to get things going for us.

One thing to be aware of is that the owner is very energy and cleanliness concious. There are a lot of rules about this and I was a little concerned with my 9 year old daughters at times.

One minor issue is that there are some areas where I feel like lights should be added. In particular the front porch needs a light. I had to pop out my mobile phone to enter in the door code each night. If there is a light I couldn't find it. The place where it would normally be had an empty / flat wall switch. One over the kitchen table in the dining area would be nice as well.

In the end though I had a great time and would recommend and stay again!

Owner's Response: Hi Roger. Thanks for staying with us! I want every one of our guests to enjoy the Ultimate Five-Star Tatami Experience I built this beautiful house to be. Therefore, to be able to continue to enjoy this tradition, I ask our guests to follow a few simple house rules. As for the porch light, it was just a burnt bulb. I replaced it immediately. It's on a sensor so the area is lit from dusk to dawn. Cheers, Mark

Comfortable, nice and good location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the end of August 2017. The house was very well located for us because we wanted to visit some areas north (Malibu area), south (Disney California) and LA downtown. The house was clean and the neighbourhood is nice. The tatami room is really zen and we slept very well. Mark (the owner) answered all my questions very fast. We'll rent it again for sure next time we'll go back to LA!

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.
