Unique stay at a wonderfully clean and spacious private apartment. A lovely garden, outdoor patio, & great neighborhood added to the experience. I stayed here to visit local family and found this to be a magical retreat at the end of the day. Owners are pleasant and attentive (special treats and superior coffee), while affording you a quiet, private stay. Easy walk to groceries. Highly recommend.

My first experience with AirBnB and it couldn't have been more smooth and enjoyable. The place is wonderful and in a very nice location. Each day I returned to a personal note and cake/muffin at my door. When I return to LA I hope Ralph and Amelia's place is available.

Villa Fortunata is a home away from home. Ralph and Amelia are a kind hearted couple who will treat you like family, welcoming you with freshly baked treats and a warm smile. The apartment is just as amazing. We had a beautiful view of the ocean, and every morning we awoke to the sound of birds singing in the lovely garden below our terrace. The kitchen and bathroom were stocked with everything we needed, and the bed was beyond comfortable. It was the best place we've ever stayed at, and we're most definitely making it our go to stop every time we come to LA!

My stay here was fantastic! The house and property were gorgeous, they have hiking trails within walking distance, and the hosts even leave treats and goodies for you upon arrival. I would recommend this place to anyone!

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Amelia and Ralph's. They have been excellent hosts - thoughtful and very kind throughout our stay. Should we be back in LA, we have no hesitation to stay at their place again.
