We enjoyed our stay in LA. The accommodation was very comfortable. It was great having the use of the kitchen. The location was great for taking the bus/train. Judy was very friendly and we felt welcome in her home.

My husband and I stayed for about a week at this fantastic home in Venice. The room was very comfortable, the bed was huge and the temperature was exactly right. Judy was very welcoming and gave us a lot of good information how to get around. Having access to the bicycles was very good as it made it easy to go around Venice and Santa Monica. We loved meeting the cats and Cody and Sammy, the two family dogs which were sweet as they can be. We hope to be back soon!

“Hummingbirds, lemon trees, and flowering pears”
Reviewed February 12, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

My husband and I, wanting to escape Minnesota for two weeks in January/February, considered renting an LA apartment. But when I found this lovely home in Venice for half the price, we decided to try it. It was a bit of a risk to commit to living for two weeks in a stranger’s home, but it worked out wonderfully!
We had our own bedroom/bathroom with a comfortable king bed, a bathtub we could fully stretch out in, and lots of hangers in the closets (often a personal pet peeve). Judy told us to help ourselves to the breakfast food in her refrigerator, but also provided a refrigerator for our own food and restaurant leftovers. Since we stayed two weeks, we also made use of her washer and dryer.
We had two great days biking the area on Judy’s bikes. Otherwise we explored by rental car, but buses were also easily accessible. We walked to breakfast a couple of times at Superba and to dinner at Centanni Trattoria, both excellent.
Judy was a relaxed hostess, happy to hear about our daily outings and to also suggest ideas for activities. And when we both came down with colds midway through our vacation, she supplied us with cold medicine!
Back in the land of sun and snow, we greatly appreciate our two weeks of sun and vegetation. Sitting in the garden watching the hummingbird protect her nest of eggs, inhaling the smell of the lemon tree, observing the budding of various plants—it was just what we needed.

“Lovely quiet and convenient location”
Reviewed December 28, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We were very pleased with this rental. Our bedroom was a nice size, the bed was comfortable and there was plenty of closet space to hang our stuff. There is a large living room and a meditation room at the top of a windy staircase. We didn't use the kitchen much however it is very well equipped and very large.

“Great host, beautiful house, safe and nice neighborhood”
Reviewed November 6, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Judy was a great host, always asking if we feel comfortable - and yes, we did! The house was beautiful and our room was large, our private bathroom also well equipped. We spent some time relaxing in the Spanish-style courtyard and explored the calm and very beautiful neighborhood. We felt welcomed in Judy's home, were able to use the kitchen and had some space in a seperate refrigerator next to our room. Very good: breakfast (make your own) included! There is a very good supermarket (Ralph's) just 15 minutes to walk near the house (driving just takes a few minutes) and some really good restaurants on the same street. We had a great time and would stay here again! Thank you, Judy! (especially for your care and help when we got a bit sick, thank you so much!)

Judy, the owner, did everything to make my two day stay flawless. I was able to go directly from LAX to her home and unload my luggage and relax. Waiting for me was an extensive list of places to eat and visit many of them within walking distance. After dinner, Judy gave me a tour and explained all the nuances of the location. The home was spotless. The home was unique and interesting. The room I was in had a huge library of books on any subject you might wish to explore. With my free wifi provided by Judy I checked my emails and relaxed. The next morning's breakfast was available and more than I expected.

Great location. Terrific owner. Amazing place to stay.

This is a home away from home. A beautiful welcoming atmosphere in a lovely home. Anywhere you wish to go in the LA area just a short drive and close to the beach.We stayed in the beautiful beach room with private bath. My son is contemplating a move to LA and I am so glad that I found this location.Breakfast is included and her pets are so well-behaved and they too made us feel right at home.Very reasonable priced, and a clean and beautifully decorated in a very nice neighborhood.Would love to come back and stay here and next time bring my husband!Thank you so very much Judy-we highly recommend your home!
