About this listing
Welcome to my place: a peaceful two-bedroom, one bathroom apartment on a quiet street on the west side of Los Angeles. You'll enjoy a clean, clutter-free room, an amazing mattress, and large windows with great views. You're welcome to hang out in the living room and to use the kitchen to store food and for light cooking.
Thanks for checking out my place. I host individuals who come to Los Angeles for planned, specific daytime activities such as sight-seeing or attending conferences and who go to bed before 11 p.m. I'm not a match for night owls or individuals with no specific plans away from my place (such as working from "home," apartment hunting, etc.).
Please read the house rules and let me know you're comfortable with them in your first communication.
Ok, about my place: I have a nice two-bedroom/one-bathroom apartment on a quiet, peaceful street.
If you're a tourist, my place is perfect whether you're driving or taking public transportation. I'm exactly in the middle of the west (best) side of Los Angeles most frequented by tourists. I'm halfway between Santa Monica (the ocean) and Downtown, and halfway between Hollywood and the 10 freeway.
I'm five blocks from the most convenient bus stop in Los Angeles (Fairfax and Wilshire). Santa Monica, UCLA, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Downtown and the rail/subway system are each ONE bus ride away from this stop.
If you're driving, you have the same convenience of reaching all these places easily on only one or two streets. I provide a parking permit which allows you to park on the street.
The bedroom is 10x11 ft. and has a window air conditioner. The queen-size bed has a 14-inch pillow-top memory-foam mattress which guests love. I provide quality sheets/blankets/comforters.
The shared bathroom has a separate bathtub and shower. Towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner are provided. The shower is 2x2.5 ft. The toilet has a bidet.
The kitchen has a fridge, stove, and toaster oven (no microwave and the big oven isn't available). You are welcome to use the kitchen as long as you clean up after.
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art and La Brea Tar Pits are three blocks away, and within a 1/2 mile radius are restaurants including Starbucks, Marie Calendars, Johnny Rocket, The Counter, Baja Fresh, Chipotle, Five Guys, Papa Johns, Hunan Taste, IHOP, Ono Hawaiian BBQ, Shakey's, and the restaurants of Little Ethiopia.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
Other than my bedroom you'll have full use of the place including the kitchen and dining and living rooms.
Interaction with Guests
I'm happy to help guests with sight-seeing suggestions and restaurant recommendations.
The neighborhood is very quiet. You would never know you were in the heart of one of the busiest parts of Los Angeles.
Two major bus routes are just blocks away. One line takes you directly to Santa Monica and the ocean going west, or Downtown going east. The other line, going north, takes you directly to Hollywood and Highland. These lines also take you to various subway stations from which you can go nearly anywhere.
I can only host guests who go to bed before 11 p.m. at night. This is very important, so if going to bed early isn't your normal routine, my place isn't a fit.
* Please take your shoes off when you step inside (a mat is provided as well as a stool for taking shoes on and off)
* Please no food or drinks other than water in the bedroom and living room (you're welcome to use the kitchen and dining room for storing food and eating)
* Please wipe the shower walls and door with the squeegee after showering (it's a small shower so it won't take long)
* Please turn off the air conditioner, fan and lights when leaving
* Always lock the front door on your way in or out (it's a safe neighborhood, but it's still a big city)
Please let me know you're comfortable with these rules in your first correspondence with me and I'll waive the $20 cleaning fee.
It was an excellent experience from the very beginning. Kevin was very responsive and helpful and his vibe is a very positive one. Really enjoyed my stay with him. His place is greatly located , very clean and peaceful indeed :) Would definitely repeat the experience and recommend his place to anyone interested in coming to LA!
It was my first experience with Airbnb , Kiven was amazing and he has a great house in a perfect location. easy access to bus stop and many places for visitors. he helped me with directions and restaurants too.
Wonderful stay in Los Angeles. Kevin's place is in a great area with plenty of restaurants, etc nearby. The room was neat, clean and private.
Kevin is very nice and friendly. He provided me a list of fun things to do at LA and helped me rent a car. The apt is clean and conveniently located.
I work just 4 blocks from this apartment, so the convenience was PERFECT! Coffee shops, restaurants are all within walking distance. The bed was VERY comfortable, the room had it's own AC so I could make it as cold as I wanted, the shower was a bit small (but I am 6'5" so everything is small to me). The place was very clean and in a safe neighborhood. Best of all, Kevin was such a GREAT host! Thanks for a great stay, I will most likely return when needed.
Kevin is an amazing host. He is very friendly,nice person, he take care of me when I stay in his room, he helps me to carry my luggage to the room upon I check in and helps me for my Car Parking..I originally booked two nights and I have to extend two more nights because I really love to stay here. It really feels like home, you feel very comfortable when he is around. you can use everything you want in this room. Kevin let me using his kitchen and I finally can eat my own hometown's food. Thank you!!!Kevin very easy hang out with, I have asked a lot of questions about LA or the culture here, he is very patient to share with me. The room is very clean and bright. I will stay with Kevin for sure when I back to LA next time!!!!Highly recommend!!!
Had a wonderful time in LA. The house is in a great spot, giving you great accessibility to a a lot of tourist attractions and spots around LA (Beverly Hills, Hollywood). The house is clean, and the room is pretty big, giving you enough space to work and chill around. Kevin is a great host, professional and friendly. He went out of his introduced me to his Thai neighbors, which I really appreciated. Would definitely stay again.
