Christians spot was great! Easy in, easy out, bright and sunny. Clean, great cable and lightning fast Internet is what I needed to get my work done that day. I will definitely stay there again!
Excellent location. Definitely a small space but the bed is comfy and you have everything you need there. Christian is incredibly helpful, communicative and fun. He gives great advice and responds immediately to all texts/calls etc if you have questions or concerns.
Since the first minute everything was easy and simple! Chris received us at the time we arrived (after changing him check in time many times). The apartment is small but with all you need for a good stay. Cleanness, a big and comfortable bed, easy parking on site and an amazing neighbourhood. Thanks!!
Christian was wonderful! My plane got to LA at 12am and after losing and finding my luggage I arrived to the flat at 1:30 am or later, Christian was waiting for me the whole time to show me the flat and orient me around the area. Thank you so so much, Christian, for being so sweet and hospitable! The space is as described, the building is beautiful and I was feeling like a local being there. The borough is very nice, safe and clean, every attraction is within driving distance and there is plenty to do within the walking distance as well. I was horrified thinking of not having AC in the room, but it always felt wonderful, some night i was even too cold and had to turn the fan off. Perfect space, perfect host!
I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Christian's apartment. This was my first Airbnb experience. Christian was extremely welcoming upon my arrival and checking in and out was very easy. I stayed for 6 nights and wish I could have stayed a few more weeks - it felt like my home away from home.
The apartment itself was quiet, clean and had everything I needed. Before I booked I was wondering if it might get a little warm in the apartment considering I was staying in summer, but there is great airflow through the windows and some fans too which keep the place lovely and cool. The pool was also fantastic on the hot summer days.
The apartment is close to a 24hr grocery store and also within walking distance to my favourite cafe in LA (Coffee + Food on Melrose). Larchmont village is a lovely spot within walking distance with some lovely cafes and restaurants. I felt very safe wandering around the neighbourhood, and there are some lovely old buildings around too.
Even though I didn't have a car I found everything easily accessible from Christian's place. The metro bus stops are close by and it was about a 10-15 minute bus ride to The Grove/ Farmer's Market, 5-10 minute bus ride to Hollywood Blvd, 15 mins to the Beverly Center and about an hour bus ride to Santa Monica pier.
Christian's place was absolutely perfect for me and I will not hesitate to stay here again the next time I am in LA. Thanks for everything, Christian, and I look forward to staying at your place again in the not too distant future!
Christian provided clear instructions about his apartment and suggestions about the neighborhood. He was alos responsive to pre-trip questions about parking (easy and plentiful street parking), etc. His place is a spacious studio apartment on the ground floor of a nice older building (1920s) with high ceilings and plenty of daylight. The apartment description is accurate and the bed is super comfortable! Walking distance from Larchmont Village (nice cafes and a few shops) and I found this to be a good, central location overall. Would happily stay here again. Thanks!
Great spot... as described. Christian was a generous and helpful host! Cute little coffee shops in the neighborhood, good parking options and conveniently located.
