James and this property are top notch!

Review submitted: February 28, 2014   Date of arrival: February 22, 2014

Beethoven's retreat is located on a quiet street and a short drive (ride) to the beach. It was clean and well appointed. James has thought of everything in this craftsman style home. Check in and out went smoothly, and after orienting ourselves we felt like we were in our own home and neighborhood. Thank you James, for your hospitality and honesty. We be back!

A gem

Review submitted: January 3, 2014   Date of arrival: December 22, 2013

This house is lovely and James is a fantastic host! I stayed in December and it was cold for LA but the garden is beautiful and it would be a treat when the weather is warmer. The house itself is better than the pictures. the location is great for those wanting to experience the Venice/Santa Monica lifestyle. The beds are super comfortable. There is plenty of street parking. I would definitely recommend a stay here.
