Interaction with Me:
Is negotiable. I'm very busy during the week but always willing to lend a hand in planning and advice. Bottom line is, if you don't want to see me, you won't.
On Weekends: I can clear out if you'd like, so you'd really be getting the place to yourself
Picture a California Beach Town Circa the 1970s. It hasn't really changed all that much since then, giving it a small town feel amid the sprawl that is Los Angeles. The town itself has a number of eateries to choose from, and Marina Del Rey is just a short drive away.
Furthermore, the proximity to LAX ensures you won't have to deal with the nightmare that is Los Angeles Traffic if you plan on staying on the West Side.
It's LA, so a car would be the preferred method. That being said, many attractions are a mere bike ride away from the unit.
Collin's place is nice and clean. The bedroom is very confortable. The apartment is closed to the airport. I payed 20$ for the ride. I would recommend it to my friends. Good experience overall.
A great place to stay close to the airport and the beach. We really enjoyed the hot tub and exercise facilities. We stayed in the master bedroom and the bed was extremely comfortable! Colin greeted us at apartment and made sure we were settled in then was gone for the rest of the week. He kept in touch with us to ensure everything was going good. We rented bikes at fishermen's village and that made getting around the beach much easier. There is a bus stop a couple of blocks away from the condo. We didn't rent car and were able to get around quite easily.
Collin was great during my stay at his place in Playa Del Rey. Very attentive and friendly. The apartment was also very nice and spacious and came with a comfy (firmness-adjusting) bed! Even had a gym and pool for me to use!
I would highly recommend this place. Great value for the money!
The reservation was canceled 18 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I stayed with Collin while working in Hermosa Beach - perfect location, to get anywhere on the west side. Collin was a kind and attentive host. Extra bonus - the TempurPedic bed was super comfortable.
Great location, even better value. The place was quiet, the amenities were great, and Collin was a fantastic and knowledgeable host. I will certainly be a repeat guest at this location.
Collin is a very, very nice guy, which makes it difficult to say, I was underwhelmed.
Collin's house is in transition right now. He informed me when I booked, the house would look different from the pictures, as it had gone through recent renovations. I took this to mean, it was now even better. I assumed the renovations and upgrades had already happened. Had I known the house was not guest ready, I would have gone with one of dozens of other listings in the area.
When I arrived, the guest room was not made. It was empty and without a bed or any furniture. In order to make up for this situation, Collin gave me his bedroom, the master room. He even decided to stay with his girlfriend for the duration of my stay, leaving me to have the entire apartment to myself. This was a great consolation.
The apartment was rather sparcely furnished as a whole. I presume this was due to his being still in the middle of the renovation. The house was pretty messy but reasonably clean, except for some dried toothpaste on the bathroom sink counter and a fair amount of fuzz and dust on the toilet seat. It was easy to clean, though I feel I should not have had to clean my own lodgings in a place I am paying for.
My stay went smoothly. I slept well, as Collin's bed is very comfortable. The complex was quiet and I slept soundly. I enjoyed the peace this afforded. I was grateful to have the house to myself for my entire stay.
Overall, I would have like a little more. Collin didn't really put much into making my stay memorable. There were more than 2 weeks from the time I booked on the 21st of October to when I arrived on the 7th of November, for Collin to prepare for my arrival. In all honesty, I believe he was still preparing for me when I called at 9pm on Thursday. ( When I called to get his exact address, as the one he gave me was a few numbers off... he told me he was making the bed.)
He provided me with a place to crash, but that is not what Airbnb is about. Airbnb is about community and providing a more personal service. It is about special touches like a fluffy bathtowel (the one he gave me smelled like mildew) or a list of great spots to eat in the area. Collin did the bare minimum. He gave me the run down, wifi password and keys... then left. He didn't clean or create any kind of presentation. I would not have felt comfortable allowing someone to stay in my house, in the condition his house was in. Collin did call and text several times to check in, but it was often coupled with "I hope you'll give me a good review" I cannot in good conscience do that this time.
I thought I made it very clear in the beginning of the transaction that my place is still in a state of transition (hence why my price is so low). I asked you repeatedly if you were okay with this, and you affirmed you understood this.
As for the towels and whatnot, I do apologize if that was your experience. I can assure you everything was laundered and cleaned prior to your arrival.
L'appartement est très sympa. , nous avons apprécier de pouvoir profiter de la piscine et du jacuzzi. Le quartier est agréable mais la proximité de l'aéroport implique des nuisances sonores importantes, allergiques au bruit s'abstenir !!
