Chris & Marion are the most friendly hosts and we really enjoyed meeting them and staying in their lovely property. After an initial mix-up about which room we were staying in, we checked into the lovely guesthouse which has everything you could need for a short stay or longer. It was situated in a beautiful garden and amidst a lovely area of the city. We drove there easily as it is very close to the freeway. We walked to Korea town on the evening for great food and drove to a fab diner recommended by them on our second day. This place is really recommended!

Great stay at Chris and Marion's place. Very welcoming and secluded. Internet dropped out but Chris was straight on it to sort and the problems was fixed in no time. Cottage was clean and homely. Thanks again both for a great stay!

Chris' place is exactly how he has described it, the back garden is natural and earthy for all nature lovers. Chris and Marion are lovely and very approachable, they have two lovely little dogs Sophie and lord Phitts very cute. The area itself is family orientated and friendly, the Santa Monica freeway is around 10 to 15 mins and gets to all destinations in LA and LA county. The area has all amenities shops, restaurants and petrol station. Plenty of parking space available

Chris & Marion were excellent hosts! They checked in with us occasionally during our stay to make sure that we had everything we needed. Their place was in a safe and quiet residential neighborhood with lots of street parking. The wifi was stable, and the space is great for 2 people. Definitely a good choice for a short stay in LA.

I was lucky enough to book last minute as they had an opening, and so glad I did. The cottage is adorable, very clean and in a wonderful neighborhood. Chris and Marion could not have been more accommodating.

This place is centrally located and right off the freeway. Overall a nice quiet neighborhood. The homes here have lots of character. At night you will notice the traffic sounds but only if you have the window open. I personally enjoy the sounds (sort of like a white noise) but shutting the window will do the trick. We had a bit of an ant problem but Chris and Marion did their best to resolve it. Please remember this cottage is in a cute little garden so the chances of you encountering a bugs is inevitable. If you do not like bugs or have allergies to them this may not be the place for you. Bugs make the world go round. Communication was great! Very quick response time. They also have 2 really cute dogs!

Chris & Marion User ProfileChris & Marion is a superhost.

Chris was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, and grew up near there. He's lived in Los Angeles for many years now. Marion is from Ojai, about 2 hours north. We have traveled a lot- 48 states and about 20 countries. We have a pretty good sense of what we like when we travel: quiet, a good cup of coffee and a clean comfortable room to return to at the end of the day. We've lived in our house on 23rd street for 12 years. Between us we have 5 kids that are all nearly grown (youngest is still in college back east). We have 2 small, very friendly dog.
