Interaction with Guests
About REVIEWS: Airbnb reviews are double-blind, not transparent, so it is impossible to respond to them. If something is not to your liking, I prefer to be told personally so I can have a chance to fix it during your stay. If I'm being told everything is great, then that's what I'll expect in a review. We can't see each others' review until after we've both submitted them. Since the reviews are double-blind, it is impossible for me to address issues that a guest may have, since I can't see the review until I write mine. That's not transparency, that's gambling and hoping the guest is honest. I will always write a good review for a guest, because I can only assume they will write a good one for me. So~ keep that in mind when reading reviews.
A deposit applies to any stay for more than one month or a pet.
Mark met us at the house and showed us around to make sure we were comfortable. We appreciated the age and charm of the house (over 100 years old!) as well as the beautiful and eclectic art throughout.
Our only issues with the house were minor uncleanliness (dusty spots in corners) and plumbing in the master bathroom. The master bath has a claw footed tub with plumbing for a shower, but the knob for directing to water to the shower head was not present. So, the choices were bath or use the other shower. Also, the toilet in the master bath tends to run so it needed a bit of special attention (especially because we are in a drought and quite water conscious.)
The location is wonderful and the price is great. The kitchen is super-duper, just wished we had time to cook in it!
I'm happy that Vickie's overall experience was good. If minor dust in the corner of a room is all the criticism there is, I'm happy to take care of it with a quick wipe. As far as the plumbing in the front bedroom goes, a simple tap on the toilet handle will stop the water filling the toilet. That happens sometimes, but considering the drought, I thought that would be something I would be notified of sooner. I'm very aware of the seriousness of the drought, which is why I've also had to stop watering the front lawn. Most of my guests understand that. That is also why it is only possible to shower in the large claw-foot tub. All the issues have been addressed.
About the Airbnb reviews system: The star ratings are an average of the time I've listed with Airbnb, so I have no idea if the star rating is from a stay four years ago, or from yesterday. Airbnb has a policy to not divulge individual star-rating feedback to the owner, which makes responding to any issues virtually impossible and anything but transparent.
The host was congenial ... the location was just what we wanted...the house met our needs...an added benefit was off street parking
Great property, located in the heart of Hollywood. Able to walk to great restaurants and bars. Mark was a accommodating host will do business with him again.
You can't beat this location! The place was nice, clean, and had a lot of room. Mark was a great host as well. He was available for us anytime we needed some help as well. When I visit LA, I'll definitely hit him up again.
We had a very nice stay at Mark's home. There was plenty of space for 5 people. We cooked big meals in the kitchen and hung out on the front porch. Mark was also communicative and helpful with any questions we had. Another excellent AIRBNB experience!
Mark's place is wonderful. The location is fantastic. Walkable distance to the Hollywood Bowl as well as the sunset strip. Quiet neighborhood, good street parking, easy access to the 101. Having said that, the place is an older classic home with lots of wooden accents. It gives you a warm homey feel and there's so much space. Had 3 kids with me and they all loved that we had cereal breakfast around the dining table next to the kitchen rather than at IHop or some hotel cafeteria. Everything works. Laundry, TV, Cable, Internet. What more can you ask?
