What a wonderful stay we had at the Carriage House. Alexander was so helpful and accommodating. We drove into Los Angeles the day that we were starting our stay, and Alexi was very flexible in meeting us to get the keys and have a tour of his lovely home. What a welcoming environment to the busy pace of Hollywood. We were within walking distance to the things we wanted to do, so that was an added bonus. Any questions we had, were answered promptly and our host was very helpful in suggesting places for us that were within walking distance from the house. The Carriage House is very charming and Alexi has maintained all of the original charm of the home. The outside patio was a perfect spot to enjoy our morning coffee and breakfast, spend some quiet time during the day, and end our evening with a glass of wine and relaxing conversation.
The house is comfortable, beautiful and inspiring. It is exactly as described by Alexander. Staying here made our trip so special and we didn't want to leave. Alexander and his neighbour, who met us on arrival, are kind and thoughtful. Book it and make sure you leave yourself time just to hang out on the private patio with a coffee in the mornings.
This is a wonderful house in a very active and walkable neighborhood near Griffith Park. The house is perfectly sized for a family or small group, and has a lovely private patio to enjoy the sunshine and lush greenery that create an island oasis in the middle of the exciting city. Alexi is a wonderful and attentive host, who was very diligent in ensuring that our needs were met every step of the way.
From the minute we got there we felt comfortable and welcome. Alex's had a neighbor look after us and she was incredibly sweet and helpful. My family absolutely loved the time we spent at the cottage. My 6 yr old daughter was sad to leave...we all were! I was there recovering after elbow surgery and it was so peaceful and restful to be there.
Also the place is so well taken care of and has such style! I loved the paintings and furniture!
Thank you Alex for a truly amazing aribnb experience. This is exactly why I choose airbnb over hotels.

We had a fabulous time at Alexander's house during our week-long stay. The house has a beautiful and welcoming atmosphere which underlines my impression of Alexander himself. Alexander is a fantastic host, who was always just one phone-call away, from the day of our arrival till the day of our departure. I'm a fan of this great house, its vibe and host!!! I'll be back soon, hopefully.
What a great place! It looked just like the pictures- artistic & charming. Alexander was a great host. He was warm, welcoming and available to address any concerns. Lovely!
Everything was great! Alex met us at the house to open the gate and hand off the keys, and gave us tour of the place. The photos don't lie -- there are beautiful flowers all around the gate, art all over the house, and a lovely patio where we sat to have breakfast and get some work done. Best business trip accommodations ever.
