Chris & Julian were gracious hosts, they made us feel most welcome. This was especially nice since this was our first AirBnB experience. Their home is lovely and we had access to living space, an office area, and a patio area. Chris prepared a fine breakfast each morning including a "to go" breakfast when we had to leave very early on the last morning. Their neighborhood is quiet and also near LAX. They also gave us good suggestions for some spots to visit on our stay. One small challenge is that I'm 6'5" and the full size bed was a little small. We plan to stay with them the next time we visit LA!
Chris and Julian are absolutely lovely. The room and patio are exactly as depicted in the pictures. There is a welcome basket waiting on the side table with a water bottle, snacks, and a welcome message. Chris makes breakfast each morning. Her cooking is delicious and the presentation is impeccable. The patio is cozy and well cared for with beautiful plants, creating a relaxing atmosphere. The location is well situated to LAX, it's only a five minute drive away, and the neighborhood is nestled away, feels very suburban with lots of trees and well cared for lawns, with the city being right at your fingertips, only minutes away.
I would definitely stay here again if I return to LA, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone searching for accommodations.
Chris and Julian were very warm. You'd feel right at home. The homemade banana cake for breakfast was the best! The room was clean and there was a private T&B as if you have your own space.
Just returned from staying with Chris and Julian for five nights. Lovely, clean guestroom/bathroom/sitting area accommodations with a charming private patio just outside the door. Breakfast included, a big plus! Easy access to LAX and the beach communities. Chris and Julian are wonderful hosts...knowledgeable, friendly and eager to help in any way they can. I will be staying here again and wholeheartedly recommend this lovely place.
Chris and Julian are great hosts,they are very thoughtful person,we chat during the breakfast, they gave me advices and tips for my trip which really helped me. Even without a car,the number 6 bus is just within 5 minutes walk, which could take you to San Monica Bl and to green line Metro. The complimentary breakfast is really delicious, my son even got a chance to play chess with Julian. The space I got is far beyond my expectation, comfortable & cozy bedroom , big living room,clean bathroom and even an office place,all those are private to my use! I will sure be back again and strongly recommend this place to those who want to visit LA.
Chris and Julian are very nice . The room is clean . I wish have change to visit them again
What a wonderful place and a wonderful couple as hosts. Everything was as described on the listing. You have total privacy when you want it and company for a chat when you feel like it. Thanks for making my stay so comfortable and being so welcoming.
We are a retired couple who enjoy the adventure of travel and understand traveling and travelers. We enjoy our pretty neighborhood, and the peacefulness of our home. English and Spanish are spoken fluently and Julian is somewhat capable of speaking and understanding French and Italian, with a bit of Catalan. We love Airbnb and have used it as guests as well as hosts. We love to meet new people and share cultures. As hosts, we want to provide guests a comfortable and affordable place to stay so they take home fond memories of Los Angeles.
