Old World Hospitality with a Great Location!
Beyond just providing a living space, the daVeigas' provided a warm comfortable atmosphere that made the trip even more pleasant than the weather! We travel often, and the sense that your hosts are truly concerned with your well-being can make all the difference. Let me start, though, with the actual amenities, location, etc. This house is within 5 minutes of the Expo Line, a light rail system that will get you into downtown in less than 40 minutes, even at rush hour! The rail system itself is bright, quiet, clean, and feels very safe. In 10 minutes the other way, you are in the sand on Santa Monica's beach! Santa Monica has a world class shopping/eating experience as well. If you can't find things to do in LA, it's on you. We went to a USC Football game on Saturday (Fight on!), and there are museums in the same vicinity. We used the rail system extensively, and didn't have to rent a car. Supermarkets are an enjoyable fifteen minute walk away. The property is all that the site said, and then some. We had our son and daughter visit, and we did not feel cramped. The beds were surprisingly comfortable. The espresso machine is a great touch! The pool outside is well-maintained, and our hosts made sure it was heated to our liking. We used it on a lazy Sunday afternoon; WOW! We cooked outside the previous night for a family meal, with a niece who stopped by as well. We ate outside; the daViegas made sure that we had room, and felt comfortable. The property itself is secured with cameras, locks, and two of the sweetest, well-trained dogs you ever met. They provided a warmth to the atmosphere, but did not jump around once! The pets are VERY respectful of your space. Even if you don't like dogs, you'd love these! If we needed anything, Jose was a text, phone call, or just a knock on the door away. He has a sincere demeanor that made you feel like you were a respected guest; he is a very warm, intelligent individual. We would highly recommend this property to friends, family, and to you as well. We know we will be back. There has to be a negative; the only thing I can think of was that the stay was too short! Really, it's easy to get around, we felt very safe walking, our hosts catered to our needs, and the place is clean, amenity-rich, and affordable. What's not to recommend?
