Gary was a fantastic host! The room and apartment were beautiful and had everything we needed. Gary was incredibly hospitable, making sure we knew everything we had access to (such as bikes, paddles for the paddleball courts and fresh towels/whatever food was in the kitchen) and was always willing to share his morning pot of coffee. Already trying to plan a return trip!
We had a great experience at Gary's place! We arrived late Saturday night and his very friendly chill neighbor, Maya, let us in. She even got in my car to help us find parking! Which is a little tricky if you're not using the garage, but where isn't parking tricky in LA! The room was really nice in the back of the house with a private bathroom, comfortable bed, and big window. It is a little loud from late night drunkards stumbling home down the street at the back of the house but it didn't bother us much. Gary was very hospitable, let us use the kitchen if we wanted and made coffee in the morning. He offered us great information on the area and things to check out. Bikes available as well! The balcony is awesome for people watching and beach view. You're definitely in the thick of all Venice action in this spot and Gary is super chill and makes you feel at home.
Loved staying at Gary's. He was very accomodating and the location is great. I'd stay here again!
Gray was easy going. We went to count down party together, and he told us some information about Venice. We spend a good time at there. Thanks, Gary!!!
Gary is a friendly host, fun and also his friends. I enjoyed staying at his nice apartment with amazing ocean view right in front of you! If you're looking for stay at a place to get closure with nature, this is the place.
Thank you so much Gary!
Gary is very friendly and welcoming, so are his friends. He will provide some valuable suggestions for traveling around. His house is beautiful, where you can see the amazing ocean and surfers directly from the window.
Gary was awesome. Super friendly and accomadating. The place has an amazing view of the beach and is in a great location. The room itself was well kept, clean and bright. Great spot!
