The real estate mantra also applies to vacation lodging. For me, my wife, adult son and teenage daughter, the Marsh House was an ideal location for our 10-day LA vacation/college visit tour.
Literally steps from the LA River bike trail, I was able to rent a bike for a week from the nearby Coco's Variety and log some miles in my free time. Also nearby were Griffith Park Observatory and Dodger Stadium, where we were pleased to attend three games. But for the unavoidable LA traffic, beaches, Hollywood, the Farmer's Market and all that LA has to offer was within our reach.
The house itself offered a fully functional kitchen, so we didn't have to eat out every meal. We also took advantage of the grill on the back patio shared with our gracious hosts, Helga and Seb. Comfortable beds in separate rooms ensured a good night's rest.
Perhaps most importantly, we never feared for our safety in this clean, family-friendly neighborhood.
