This was a perfect place for our time in Los Angeles. The apartment is lovely and spotless - just as it looks in the photos. There is plenty of room for sleeping as well as relaxing or entertaining. The location was very convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. The on-site parking was a great plus. No hunting around for a space when you come home tired at night, but you'll need a smallish car. Getting into and out of the spot is a little tight and I wouldn't want to try it with a minivan, for example.
Dorothy could not possibly have been a better host. The breakfast food she provided was healthy, varied and plenty to last the full 6 days of our stay. The one time something went wrong - the TV wasn't working properly on the morning of the Academy Awards - Dorothy came to the apartment and fixed it (on a Sunday!) well in time for our Oscar's party.
We cannot recommend this place highly enough and will certainly stay here again the next time we visit LA.
I stayed here with my friend for 7 nights. It's an amazing trip thanks to the nicest host Dorothy! It's a spacious and very comfortable and clean apartment. And Metro and subway station are not that far from here. Especially Korea town is close so I was very convenient. During the days I could contact her easily by text and she gave us very quick reply so I didn't need to worry anything. Thanks Dorothy again! I had a great trip in LA!!!
This was a spacious, comfortable 2-bedroom apartment that was generously stocked with food, beverages and amenities by the host. Even though she doesn't live on site, she was attentive and responsive via email and phone. The place was only 10 minutes from downtown LA via the 101 or city streets.
My name is Laura Young and I stayed at the "Haven Retreat Home Away From Home" from Dec. 6-11, 2014. My host was Dorothy Yan. This was my first time working with Airbnb and it has been a wonderful experience!!! Dorothy is simply amazing!! She communicated with me before my arrival and everything went very smooth. I had asked her to pick up a few things for me and have them in the apt. when my guests and I arrive. I wanted to do something extra special to celebrate my sisters' birthday and my cousins' birthday. Dorothy went above and beyond and I cannot thank her enough for helping me make this a memorable time for me and my family. We had a long travel day to Los Angeles and Dorothy made sure that we had things in the fridge to get us started without having to run to the store immediately. My guests are still talking the great time and comfort level they experienced at this property. Dorothy met us at the apartment to give us the keys and to show us around. The apartment has two very nice size bedrooms and one full bathroom. The kitchen is also very nice with full size appliances. Everything was great condition and apartment was cleaned to perfection. By the way, the living room area is very nice and roomy and the entire apartment has beautiful hardwood floors throughout. The apartment truly felt like a "home away from home". The name of the property fits perfectly. The apartment is very spacious with such a "homey" feel to it. Another huge plus about staying at this property is that is quite and the community is very clean. It was a huge perk having a washer and dryer (along with detergent...can you believe it?) in the unit. It is located in a residential/family area which is centrally located to everything. I met some of the neighbors and they were very nice and friendly. There is a Vonns Grocery Store approximately a mile from the apartment which was great! Easy access to the 101 Freeway and we found several very nice restaurants nearby. Another great feature to staying at this property is that you have your own on-site parking space at no extra cost. Great value for the money. Dorothy's response time to my questions was very fast and timely. She is indeed a wonderful, caring, and thoughtful host! Thanks Dorothy for making our stay a time to remember. Kindest Regards, Laura Young & Family
Dorothy was so very very responsive and friendly. The retreat was comfortable and homey. Dorothy provided fruit and food essentials if you were not able to immediately go shopping. The neighborhood was safe, fairly convenient and pleasant enough with well maintained homes.
Had a really great time in LA. Dorothy's apartment was exactly as described, and was perfect for a longer stay in LA. We were working between West Hollywood and Silverlake so it was very convenient and also very quiet so a nice retreat after a long hectic day in LA. Dorothy stayed in regular contact to make sure that we were comfortable which was great. Can't fault the apartment or Dorothy x
Dorothy is a lovely host, and met us at the apartment to show us around and give us the keys. The apartment looks exactly as described and was clean. She had stocked the refrigerator with some breakfast items, milk and juice and this was really appreciated since we didn't have our bearings yet! The bedrooms were nice and the beds very comfortable. It's a few miles to downtown LA and not much in walking distance, but we had a rental car which made things easy. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend for future travelers!
