We have a cozy, beautiful home in a quiet cul de sac in Mar Vista, 15 min from the beach, bars and hipsters of Venice, as well as Santa Monica & Culver City. 3 BD, solar, wood fireplace, barbeque, off-street parking, huge kitchen. We recently renovated - painted the kitchen cabinets, opened up the lounge and re-did the den into a master suite, and need to update the pictures (hard with a wriggly baby, but will do soon!). The space is even more open and light than in the current pictures.

House Rules

We live in a quiet street, with really lovely neighbours (who will always help out if you're in a pickle), so if you're into super loud music and rocking house parties then good for you (really!), but this is not the right house for you.

We have full air conditioning and heating but please close all the windows and doors if you turn it on, and turn it off if you go out. If you leave windows open it will expend a huge amount of energy trying to regulate the temperature, so not only is it a terrible waste of energy, but we will have a massive electricity bill.

We don't allow pets - we have allergies (which is why we got our non-shedding, non-smelly Labradoodle) so we can't have other animals in the house unfortunately.

If you want to smoke, then do so in the backyard. No smoking in the house.

Our family is very passionate about the environment - we have recycling (blue bin) and compost (green bin) - there are separate bins inside as well to make it easy to separate out the recycling from trash (paper, tins, glass - just throw them all in together), with a big bowl next to the sink for anything compostable. Please do your bit to help save the planet!

A perfect house, in a perfect place, with a perfect host!!! We had such an amazing time at Frances' place. Just a few minutes drive from Venice beach where we started every morning with a run along the beach walk. Also close enough for all the touristy things one would like to do and see when visiting L.A., Hollywood, Griffith park, Beverly hills etc. Frances and her husband were both very easy and pleasant to communicate with and made sure we had all the info we needed before arriving etc. I would recommend it any day!!! / Terese

We loved our stay in Frances' cozy, beautiful home. They had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, including the best bed I've ever slept on (trying to figure out how we can get one of those for ourselves!), big kitchen, gorgeous backyard with fairy lights, a barbecue and a firepit. The house was sparkling clean, and check-in was super easy (we arrived to a bottle of wine and some beer in the fridge!). Frances was really sweet and super easy to reach. Love all the photo's of their family, and personal touches around the house.

Lovely comfortable home with gorgeous backyard. Only drawback: Mattresses are very soft so a problem if you have back or neck issues

Response from Frances:
Hi Susi! Thanks for the review, and for being such lovely guests :) One quick note on the mattresses - I'm sorry if you found them too soft! They are super high quality memory foam mattresses. The one you were sleeping on is a Tempur-pedic mattress, which we bought because I have back issues myself, and it's gotten way better since I started sleeping on this mattress. They have a range of different styles, and we've been told that it's more to do with the support built into the mattress (vs. how soft it feels).

My 2y4mos old toddler said it was our holiday home. It was so wonderful and comfortable that we extended our stays from two wks to three wks. Our family travel 4 months a year at least and we were glad we found Frances's cozy and gorgeous house for our work/vacation home. Frances are great in communication even her family was traveling and on different time zones. The location is great, closer to grocery stores, restaurants and playgrounds.Definitely best option for family travelers.

My family and I had a really great stay at Frances's place! We loved the house, it's in a great location, it's big and so cozy. Frances was an awesome host, she checked in through text and answered any questions we had, she was very helpful and attentive. The house is perfect, the photos are a bit outdated but everything met up to our expectations. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay at this beautiful socal house!

We rented this house for our family Christmas vacation and it rocked! The table was able to seat the whole family, the kitchen was had all the essentials for cooking, and the fireplace made our stay complete. France's let us check in early and check out late since we had an elderly guest that needs more time in the mornings. The communication was awesome and we never had any issues. I loved all the pictures and personal touches to the house, i like to know I'm supporting a great family. Would stay again in the future!

We moved down to LA from San Francisco a couple of years ago and really love this city. I grew up in South Africa, David in San Diego. I work for a consulting firm, and my husband works for a healthcare provider. We love good food, wine and hanging out with friends in our beautiful home. We have a Labradoodle called Rumi, who is the sweetest, most fun dog in the world.
