Scott was a great host and incredibly accommodating to meeting the needs of me and my friend. He was easy to get in contact with prior to and during our stay, both via text and phone calls. The unit is in the most convenient location for being near WB Studios as it is directly across the street, and everything in the unit was as pictured in the listing. My friend and I would both definitely stay here again in the future when visiting LA!
Didn't meet Scott, but his place is nice. The only problem should be the sound insulation is not good.
Scott is a warm and gracious host. He met us at the apartment to show us around the place and answer questions. He also knows the area well and made excellent suggestions. He's the kind of guy you would want as a friend :-)
The apartment was spotless and had everything we needed. You really cannot beat the location. As with most places in SoCal, there is traffic noise that can't be avoided, but we really didn't notice it much. We (mother with teen daughter) were there for 5 nights and felt perfectly safe. It's a nice neighborhood with friendly neighbors.
It was so nice to have the extra space and to be able to have heathy snacks and breakfast in (we ate other meals out, but could have cooked in). The street parking was never a problem at all. We found a close spot every time we came back at any time of the day.
We will most definitely stay there again when in the area!
After hearing so much about the convenience of airbnb I finally decided to try it myself on my trip to California and Scott was an unbelievable host. He gave us a warm welcome showed us the many features of the location. He took the time out to let us know great attractions to see as well as great spots to visit within close vicinity of the location.
The house was state of the art, had a beautiful decor, and was absolutely spotless when we arrived and in a great neighborhood. Will definitely look into staying here again on my next trip to California.
Absolutely fantastic apartment. We stayed for 6 weeks and it was perfect. Nice neighbourhood, walking distance to shops and restaurants. Town centre is just a short drive away as well, also. The apartment was spotlessly clean, had all the amenities you could need and Scott was a very helpful host. We will definitely be staying here again in the future!
I couldn't have picked a better place to stay! The apartment was fantastic. Great location being directly across the street from Warner a Brothers Studios. The apartment room has hi-speed wifi, a big tv in the living room, another tv in the bedroom. Scott was a great host and answered any questions I had.
The melody is a wonderful property with a great location. It is located in a safe and friendly neighborhood with close proximity to a good number of attractions. I can't complain about anything!
