It was a fantastic stay! Much better then we expected!

5 on March 10, 2015

My husband and I decided to stay the couple of night in LA before returning to Montreal. He found this place and when we arrived we were surprised how welcomed we were! Ronit is a fantastic host and she makes your stay so enjoyable! She will give you advice on where to go , what to visit! The rooms are so nice, clean and it really feels like home! The breakfast was fantastic! She is a great cook! e loved every minute of our stay there! We enjoyed having conversations with Ronit and her husband! I very much recommend her place! Knowing we were newlyweds coming back from our honeymoon she prepared us a card and sweets! We were charmed! Thank you very much for making LA wonderful for us!

A brilliant stay

It was an absolutely brilliant stay! We really had a great time staying with Ronit and Pini. They made us feel very welcome and the food was extraordinarily delicious. Thank you ever so much!

I almost don't want to share!

After my husband finished a massive project in Canada, and I wrapped up on a film, we were exhausted. We just wanted to go hide out for a few days and literally not be bothered. My husband found this charming little Shangri La in LA, tucked in a quiet neighborhood, and it was a total delight. The owners are sweet, cool, and accommodating. Loved their breakfasts and coffees! There are two room options, one in the house and one that's a suite disconnected from the house (by the pool). I liked the latter for peace and privacy. I can't say enough about this cozy little haven. Can't wait to go back.

Better than home

My wife and son and I spent two delightful nights here in September. Ronit and Angus are a lovely and accommodating couple that truly make your visit feel like home, minus the cooking and cleaning! Breakfast was one of the most extensive and freshest you could desire. While we weren't there long, I could surely see spending hours of any day or night relaxing by the pool, playing with their adorable dog or strolling about the cozy neighborhood. Life Is Good is GREAT!

Home Away From Home

5 on November 11, 2014

We stayed here in May, 2013 and loved it so much we keep coming back! The price is amazing for the fantastic service you get! Ronit pulls out all the stops to make your stay comfortable. She is one of the most hospitable people I have ever met and they became our LA family once we stayed there. My fiancé even got her involved when he proposed to me! Definitely utilize Ronit and Pini's knowledge of the area. They know the best places to recommend for dinner and activities and offer a GPS preprogrammed with top places and restaurants. The B&B is well located next to both highways (101 and 405). The neighborhood is safe and there is plenty of street parking for free right in front of the house. There are 2 different rooms you can stay in: one is a guest house that is separate from the main house, and the other, "mini", is in the main house but still has its own private bedroom and bathroom. In the separate guest house, they have everything you could possibly want. Hair dryer, Keurig machine, fridge stocked with beverages, TV, reading lights, shampoo, body wash, comfortable bed, a washer and dryer, and a beautiful pool! The list goes on and on. The room is cleaned every day of your stay - they make the bed, take out the trash, etc. The mini is smaller than the separate guest house but is still a nice option. The room itself has a bed, desk, closet, chairs, TV, and bathroom. There are snacks in the room, but you share the fridge in the main kitchen instead of having your own mini fridge. The breakfasts are fantastic! She has a menu to choose from and every breakfast is huge and hearty. You can choose to have it in your room or out by the pool. The breakfast scrambles and French toast remain my favorite! She also serves fantastic muffins, scones, and jams. The pool area is tranquil and makes you feel removed from the busy city, even though it's so close to the busy highways. The entire B&B is so quiet and peaceful. We will definitely be back again!

Exceptional Bed and Breakfast

We had the lovely pleasure of staying at Ronit's BnB in August. We had a great stay. The BnB is perfect for an amazing breakfast and relaxing mornings. It feels like you are visiting friends. It was a perfect stay. We especially enjoyed the special touches that Ronit and Pini added, such as maps and GPS in your room, fruits in a bowl, snacks and water all while staying in a very clean room. It was perfect. I'd go back in a heart beat.

Better Than Home

Beautiful, peaceful, Zen-like atmosphere. Ronit and Pini are more like friends than concierge. We had some special requests and they were very accommodating. It was the most pleasant experience we will carry with us for a long time. Jessi and Jamie

Great stay!!!

"Life is Good" is a beautiful, quiet, pleasant and wonderful place. Apartment is very cozy, pure and comfortable. There is a cozy garden and pool in the apartment. You can have a rest and relax there in the evening. But the most important in this apartment is the owners Ronit and Pini. They are very hospitable, kind, cheerful and very pleasant. Ronit makes the most tasty breakfasts in America, in Europe and Asia. Atmosphere of this place is very cozy like at home. We fell in love with this place and its owners! We will recommend this apartment, because it's unforgettable place and unforgettable people.

Awesome B&B experience

I was treated like one of the family and that was a great feeling so far away from home. The family is friendly and the accommodations were perfect for my needs. The food was amazing. Ronit was very helpful about what to do while I was there, and I took many of her suggestions.

Great Couple, cozy apartment

4.4 on August 25, 2014

My husband and i stayed 4 lovely nights at Ronit and Pini's BB at the tail end of our California vacation. To say we had a lovely time was an understatement - from the moment we met Pini and Roni we knew we had made the right choice. Set in a quiet street within easy driving to all the locations, Life is Good BnB is full of warmth and character, not just your normal hotel room. We had long hours of interesting conversation about almost everything under the sun, and they both proved to be really wonderful hosts. Breakfast was an experience, with particular mention of the mediterranean salad. We will be sure to stay with Ronit and Pini again and again, they made us want to become residents of LA.
