The house was clean and Mariana was truly the best host. She tried to show me beautiful places in LA despite of her knees. She also introduced her friends and her children to me and they are also very sweet. I was happy to meet such great people on the other side of the world. We hope Mariana stays healthy and I'll look forward to seeing her again:)
It was great
This place was amazing and the host was an absolute delight. She goes above and beyond, and treats her guests like family members. I would most certainly book with her again in the near future.
Mayra was a really genuine and nice host, she was very welcoming and showed me around the place as soon as got there. Staying here made me feel like home, I would recommend this home to anyone on this website as you wont be disappointed!
