Interaction with guests

I am a great host....have an outstanding 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.

The neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

I stayed here for 63 days. I loved it. Private, secure, secluded. I think my HBO and Showtime passwords are still on the Roku! Lol This is the perfect pad for a short or long stay. Great location to get on the 101 north or south (just have to deal with Hollywood Bowl traffic). Target and Ralph's are walking distance along with some pretty good restaurants. Denise was incredibly accommodating and helpful. I never got to meet her, personally, but she always responded to my questions within a few hours, if not minutes. Given the chance, I'd stay here again and again, but I got an apartment here now, so you can enjoy this great spot!

Marilyn's place was great. Recently remodeled had a great feel. No stove, but plenty of electrical plug in appliances for cooking. Nice and clean place.

This place was centrally located and we easily maneuvered around the city. Unfortunately that was the only plus. In past Airbnb reservations once the place was booked I would get an email from the host with a welcome or instructions. None of which happened in this instance. It wasn't until I was boarding my flight that I realized this so I shot a quick message to "D" before taking off. Once I landed I received a very rude message stating that I need to read the instructions in my itinerary and a not so friendly reminder that I couldn't check in until 4pm. I went on to read the itinerary which wasn't very inviting either. There was a long list of house rules one of which was not to speak to the neighbors. O_O Once we arrived we found this was not a guest house but a converted garage. Once settled we began noticing bug bites on one of the guests. It wasn’t until the next day when all three of us woke up that we realized we all had them. Also one of the nights we returned home from a night we were unable to use the code to get into the gate. We called another woman that was listed to contact to find out the code had been changed without notices. I think it’s pretty clear that we will not be staying here again.
