Interaction with Guests
I am a great host....have an outstanding guide..am usually available with recommendations..have list of latest popular clubs, sights, shopping, shows, music venues, restaurants, star sighting locations. But check out my reviews to see a non biased view. I love LA and want u to have the very best time.
There is an artsy, energetic and cosmopolitan flavor to the area--2 art galleries are across the street--but the street itself is not noisy though close to everything. Easy access to freeways but not too close--about 10-15 min drive.
Walk to restaurants, take metro. Walk to the famous Walk of Fame, El Capitan Theater, Tours of the Stars Homes, Jimmy Kimmel Live TV Show on Hollywood Blvd or West Hollywood entertainment. The West Village of LA in Hollywood's cool area. Creative center.
Not too far from Runyon Canyon. 4 blocks from West Hollywood city at La Brea and Fountain or Santa Monica Blvd and La Brea....important intersections to know. Good transportation nearby. Plus easy taxi or other pick up apps available (Uber or Lyft). Very happening location. Very central. Not too far east...east of Highland is a different area.
Public Transit 1/2 block...taxis (call)...metro is 4 long blocks to Hollywood/Highland...great location to see LA and be close to the action. One of the few locations where you can walk around and manage without a car though I'd recommend a car. Close to best parts of LA you read about and see on TV. Base of Hollywood Hills.
Other Things to Note
Full Length Mirror+Lighted Make-up mirror, shampoo, conditioner, soap, towels, linens included plus hair dryer and iron +ironing board.
Smoking OK on private deck that is part of unit--keep French door CLOSED (if you smoke there) so no smoke goes inside unit, as I am allergic as are other guests. There is no smoke smell in the place as all my guests who smoke, smoke outside in the designated area.
Supermarket 4 blocks away (a Ralphs on La Brea and Fountain-free parking there-(ask for discount card--it's free)...also Whole Foods Market nearby (Santa Monica Blvd and Fairfax-free parking), vegetarian/organic restaurants nearby and many fabulous restaurants where you can eat outside. Great restaurants for big and smaller budgets. LA has great food and variety including the best sushi and the best consistent weather in the world. California is the most beautiful and diverse state in the U.S. with the most interesting mix of friendly and creative people from all over the world. It has the world's 6th largest economy.

Denise was very prompt in her responses and has an extensive guidebook. She gave us recommendations on places to visit. We enjoyed staying at her place. It was cosy and we managed to fit three people in it. We could do laundry there too which was convenient but need to get your own detergent. We didn't have much problems with street parking, always found a spot nearby.
I stay at quite a few AirBnBs and this is, by far, one of the nicest ones I've had the pleasure of visiting. The place is set up perfectly and it's as nice as the pictures look. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Very nice space in the neighborhood we needed to stay in. Denise was very helpful and wanted to ensure the guest had a nice holiday stay, suggested activities, etc. Check in and out was automated, and easy. Thanks!
If I had to pick one word to describe Denise as far as Air bnb goes, it would be "HONEST"!!! This was my first time ever using this service so you can imagine how much on the edge I was. Hotels in LA were almost completely booked, and any that had openings had doubled the rate because I guess this was a crazy week to be there (like every week isn't!lol). After searching through pages of places and reading so so reviews, there was Denise's Place!!! I mean EVERYTHING was spot on how she listed it! I'm a stickler for sanitized bathrooms so from the pictures it appeared that hers was a ok... IT WAS!!!lol
Although Denise was out of the country, she thoroughly communicated with me via text/email. She informed me of places to eat and the neighborhood itself. Which was very cool and calm and not far from everything! I definitely would stay there again!!!!
Denise is prompt in replying queries. Room is clean, just enough for 2 persons stay. Parking is quite convenient and it's for free.
Great location. Nice neighborhood. Close to the hop on hop off tour. Space is enough for two. Place has everything you need (smart tv, A/C, kitchenware, etc.).
Denise communicates very well and her place is comfortable and conveniently located, we will be back.

About the Host, Denise
I am a dynamic and ebullient personality and just love meeting new and interesting people from around the world. I travel alot and therefore have an appreciation for what people like when they travel. I have also used airbnb before myself as a guest, once in Italy where it turned out great, and another time I tried to find something in New York City where there was nothing that was suitable for my needs. Therefore, it's important to me that guests have a good experience and find something close to what they are looking for at the right price. I believe these places offer that.
When I travel, it is critical to me that I have comfortable beds and big beds. So in these units, the beds are high end and very comfortable. You can tell from the reviews what people think. I also believe environment is important so these places all have redwood decks...something unique, I believe...and modern furnishings. I also like to be walking distance to restaurants and sights and clubs....that's tough to do in LA, but these places definitely offer that too. And vibe. Ultimately, I want to stay in a place like these places...but don't often find them in other countries. And hearing how happy people are is a real high. I have a lot of faith in people...and by and large am rarely disappointed. If only the people I've met were running the world......!!
