About Owner/Property Manager

Hi! Thank you for considering renting our home. My name is Christine and I work at LMU, where I went to college. I also earned a Master's from USC in communication. I love California and our friendly neighborhood. I am originally from Alaska! I love the outdoors. Last November my husband and I welcomed our first baby boy! Being a mom has been the most fun and rewarding and challenging role so far! :) Have a wonderful day! Hope we get to meet you soon!

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Los Angeles area

Our house is an awesome location, and there are so many fun places that you can walk to including Bristol Farms, Coffee Bean and tons of great restaurants

Great location for LA vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Christine, Joe, and Ryan for letting us stay in your home! The location is close to several beaches that we enjoyed! Your home allowed us to relax with our 1 year old granddaughter as needed throughout the day. The area is safe and quiet as we went for several walks. They were very accomodating and we greatly appreciated the suggestions and hospitality! We totally enjoyed our vacation and would stay here again!

Right down the street from LMU. Minutes from Venice beach and Santa Monica pier. We had an incredible time with our daughter. Highly recommend for others.

Awesome location and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Owners were very nice and attentive to our needs. The house had everything we needed and more. Felt like I was at home. Very cozy and clean. Very quiet neighborhood. All the houses are very well kept. Loved that I could walk a very short distance to go get a coffee or bite to eat.(Starbucks, Coffee Bean, Thai, Italian, Pizza, Crepes) Would definitely stay there again.

A Relaxing Getaway in a Cute Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this "Charming Cottage" over the Thanksgiving weekend - a staycation away from the to-do list waiting at home. Christine and Joe were very welcoming. The house had everything we needed -- a very nice kitchen with all the plates, glassware, silverware, and pots and pans that we needed for a family of five; comfortable beds; a relaxing shower; wifi and a big flatscreen tv with Pandora, Netflix, and cable.

There are plenty of grocery stores and restaurants within walking distance -- Bristol Farms and Ralphs, a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, and Thai, Indian, Italian, Mexican, and Japanese restaurants. There is even a bowling alley within walking distance - we wanted to go there with our kids, but it was closed for renovations (bummer!).

In retrospect we wish we had brought bikes to explore the area -- We were a short drive from Venice and from Dockweiler State Beach, but the weather was beautiful for our stay and we wish we had ridden instead.

The only negative I can think of -- the house is about a mile north of LAX. We had no issues with airport traffic, even on the busy travel weekend, and we only heard the airplanes on one night of our three night stay. But even then they were a background noise -- they didn't keep us awake or disturb our visit. If you are very, very sensitive to noises, you should know that you might hear airplane traffic. On the other hand, if you want to be near the airport, you have got it made here!

To conclude, this was a very relaxing, pleasant place to stay, and we heartily recommend it.
