The location is excellent. The room is nice, neat and lovely, the entire building is very nice and the courtyard is just gorgeous, wow.
It's located in a very convenient area - easy to find parking, which I was worried the most about.
Matt & Sheena were always available and responded very quickly. Self check-in/out makes everything very simple.
Matt's place was great and within walking distance to everything I needed. The deli downstairs is awesome (try the thanksgiving sandwich!) and the apartment itself is really nice. Matt was extremely accommodating when I needed to extend my stay at very short notice. Would stay again for sure!
Matthew was polite and answered all our questions promptly. We stay for 3 days at his Vine place. It was a 5 min walk to the subway and 15 min to the walk of fame. The place was probably built around the 1950s so it has an older look to it but it was comfortable and quiet. Thank you!
The reservation was canceled 14 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Matthew was a very accessible host. The apartment was tidy with great closet space, and the space is just as described and shown in the pictures. Super quite for a good rest.
We could not access the Netflix service during our stay but he reset it afterwards. WIFI did work fine.
Great dining and drinking spots nearby, good access to street parking, and Trader Joe's Supermarket.
I would stay there again!
Hiccups at the airport, car rental and traffic caused us to arrive quite late. The easy entrance wasn't so easy but eventually we made it through the locked gates of Villa Elaine, the historical apartments where Matthew's studio lies.
The entrance was breathtaking. The entry, foyer and gardens were lovingly attended, it is clear to see the magic that was planned when the Villa was built ~ whenever that was... Orson Wells, Frank Sinatra and a host of others lived there once upon a time.
Reaching Matthew's apartment in the back side of the 106 or so apartments wasn't as breathtaking. Once inside the halls it feels like an old dormitory with shabby carpet and echo-y walls.
I didn't know what to expect, the difference between the grand entrance and the seedy-feeling halls was enormous but his studio is clean, comfortable and straight out of a black and white 60s television show. It's a studio, with a kitchen and a dressing room. It has so much potential ~ I wanted to attack it with a paintbrush and show off those high ceilings, throw open the curtains and windows and make it come alive. At the same time, I appreciated the retro look and feel. If you want an experience of Hollywood, this is a great place to start. It's old, it's funky and it suits the purpose beautifully. It's hard to find parking on a busy Saturday night, I spent $36 at a parking garage a few blocks away, but on Sunday night it was easy as pie.
Matthew was an absent host but attentive and helpful.
We really enjoyed our stay in Matthew's apartment!
The location is great. It is very close to shops, attractions and nightlife. Parking is street parking and we never experienced any difficulties finding a parking space. The apartment in itself is as shown on the pictures. It was clean, quiet and nice - it also felt really safe. There is not much cooking equipment, but the basics are there (and there are so many nice places to eat out or get a take-away). Check-in/out was hassle free.
Thank you Matthew!
No conocí a Matthew personalmente pero tampoco hizo falta, el fue super eficaz con el tema del check in y el check out y se mostró disponible por si llegará a necesitar algo, lo que no hizo falta. El departamento es bastante cómodo y tiene todo lo necesario. Está en un edificio muy lindo y con gente muy amigable. Por ahí lo único que juega en contra es el tema que en determinados horarios es realmente complicado el tema del estacionamiento en la calla.
Great apartment, at the Greatest location of Los Angeles, close to everything, and well arranged. It has a nice kitchen, VERY confortable bed, and all of the things you need to make your stay enjoyable. Rent from him!
Excellent stay! The location is fantastic and the apartment is great. It is clean, quiet, easy to access and no hassle from anybody. Nice bars and food available in restaurants on Main Street and lots of shops etc in local area. Close to attractions too.
I never met Matthew, but his instructions were clear and easy to understand. I had no problem whilst I stayed. I would definitely stay again.
Parking is ok and is free on the side streets. Although it is based on luck as to whether you get street parking as lots of other people also park there. However there is a cheap and safe car park on Vine Street.
Overall excellent stat! Thanks Matthew.
