I became a chef because of the joy of bringing people together, the love of food and the love of creating the guest experience. I built a hospitality company based around these concepts.

Kimberly Garrett purchased this villa in 1991
About this house... It is truly a great place to both relax and/or work, and recharge. And the views! I hope you will enjoy this house as much as I do! This Villa has a magical quality to it. I catch myself saying, "How cool and no way!!!" throughout the day on a regular basis. You are constantly finding the new and amazing things it has to offer. The light hits the villa in different ways throughout the day. Watching the sunset from the rooftop deck or any of the patios is awe-inspiring. Please come see why I fell in love with this Villa and this city.
Close to the beaches while still 6 minutes away from Lax. There are no vacation rental houses anywhere in the area that are this large. Relax as close or as far away from your family or friends in this great place made for having a good time.
My extended family traveled to LA for a family wedding. Cost was about the same as staying at a decent hotel. The house is close to our LA relatives and was large enough for 5 families to enjoy each other's company without getting on each other's nerves. Our use of the kitchen was minimal and it was too hot to venture out to the balconies until evening. But there is a panoramic view from just about every wonderfully air conditioned room. There are private bedrooms for 10 people and the game room has a queen and sofas for those who don't mind an open floor plan. Rollaways were available to add to the spacious bedrooms if desired.
Kimberly was very apologetic that the house was not in perfect condition for us due to the previous renters' rough treatment. Things were broken and carpets were stained, but the cleaning crew did an outstanding job in a short time. For gadget fans, the kitchen has some interesting built-in appliances that were state-of-the-art back in the 80s. We didn't do any sightseeing since we have been to the area many times.
The VRBO listing accurately describes the property. I would definitely rent this property again - it is a really awesome LA beach resort!
MY husband and I, along with our 5 adult children and spouses travelled to LA for a family wedding. We were happy with our stay in this beautiful home. It was nice for everyone to spread out among the different levels, the beds were very comfortable, the views awesome and the location perfect for us. The gourmet kitchen was a delight and also well stocked. We drove in a different direction each day to see the sights and it was wonderful to be so centrally located. Kimberly was attentive to our every need and offered great suggestions for things to do/places to go. We would highly recommend this rental to those who prefer a home over a hotel. Thanks Kimberly!
Booked a three night stay at this residence for extended family gathering for a birthday celebration. We were all traveling from different parts of the country and wanted a location that would provide ample space and proximity to the airport and our event venue. We could not believe our fortune in securing this residence. This multi-level residence allowed for everyone to have their privacy while also allowing for multi-locations for socializing. The views from every level and most rooms were simply stunning especially from the spacious roof-top deck that offered sweeping views from the ocean to the Hollywood hills to downtown Los Angeles. We ventured to local beaches (Dockweiler, Marina Del Rey, Venice Beach, and Santa Monica Pier) without having to get on the freeways; a huge bonus! The property manager was very responsive to our inquiries and provided great tips on local resources. It will be hard to travel to the L.A. area again and not stay here!
-Spacious house with rooms / beds / bathrooms to spare
-Great amenities (pool table, multiple TVs, stereo system, hot tub, etc.)
-Relatively central location
-Good for groups
-Kitchen sink was clogged upon arrival (put a damper on our cooking until we got the supplies we needed from the store to unclog it the 2nd day)
-Ants in Kitchen
Kimberly, the landlord, was definitely a "pro" as well. She was very helpful along the way, was flexible with timing when we needed it, and was very responsive via text/phone.
We had a fun time staying at this place. The manager was very responsible to our needs.
This was an amazingly large property. We had a group of 20 people, 10 rented another property, and we rented this one. The other group was SO JEALOUS when they came over and they spent about $300.00 more a night. The many floors actually allowed for things to be quiet on the other levels when people were playing games on the gaming floor. The views were gorgeous and everything was set up, including a welcome basket, fresh robes, towels, etc. This property was close to Marina Del Rey, which is where we were visiting, as well as the airport, Santa Monica, etc. Kimberly was fantastic!
