Great owners. The best we have encountered.Their hospitality is fantastic, from the donuts, to directions and reviews for restaurants, to even welcoming our dog to play with theirs. Scott and Randi really treat you as guests in their house. We stayed for two months and would gladly return again.

Property was in a great location with easy walking access to stores, restaurants, etc. Scott and Randy were excellent hosts providing us comfort and an enjoyable atmosphere. They brought us donuts one morning, our children enjoyed the property, and it had all the amenities necessary.

Superb location, apartment and host! Upon arrival we were greeted by Scott who spent time with us letting us know about great places too eat and visit. His recommendations were excellent. In addition the apartment was stocked with lots of bottles of Fiji waters, fruit plate, lots of chocolates and donuts from a specialty donut shop in Santa Monica. He also brought us award winning strawberries from the farmers market one morning.

The apartment was beautifully decorated, the beds were high end and very comfortable. Parking was very convenient and in front of the apartment. Scott even had wonderful bikes that we used to ride on the strand that was located just a few blocks from the beach.

I will definitely stay here again when I return to LA.
