Great spot... as described. Christian was a generous and helpful host! Cute little coffee shops in the neighborhood, good parking options and conveniently located.
Christian was incredibly welcoming--responsive from our first contact, flexible on meeting time and right there when we arrived--and got us oriented to the apartment and the neighborhood perfectly.
The apartment was great, in a classic 20's building (think New York prewar studio in the West Village, wonderfully funky and homey) with every convenience you could ask for (gym, laundry), including a wonderful pool that was even more beautiful in person than in the photos. Big, comfy bed, outlets galore, great wifi.
Finally, the location is great. Beautiful neighborhood, one block to a great market but still in a neighborhood, close to the Larchmont "main street" of the neighborhood but also Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, LACMA, anything you could want. Easy street parking but watch signs! Christian gave a great tutorial.
Thanks, Christin, for everything.
I had a great time at Christian's pad. It was just as listed and was in a really nice building (with a super pool). location was excellent and just around the corner from Paramount Pictures were I was working. He greeted me earlier than normal check in to accommodate for my travel plans and was a really nice guy. I got along with him instantly and it was like we were old friends. would recommend this place highly and be looking to call in again when I am back in LA.
Christian is a very nice guy, who was easy to communicate with before I booked as well as leading up to and during the stay. I will say that the place was a tiny bit smaller than it looked in the pictures, but it makes sense considering the very reasonable price. For those not familiar with Los Angeles, this is an excellent, very safe location, near a grocery store and within walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Larchmont Village. It's an interesting building with a lot of history, and the pool is a great perk. The neighbors seemed cool with us being there, and were very quiet. Very satisfactory stay; I'd stay with Christian again.
