It was an honour to stay at Dorothy's apartment in West Hollywood! Dorothy is a marvellous lady and such a welcoming Host! My daughter and I were made to feel very special at her beautiful apartment. From the welcoming Flowers and wine, to the Fridge stacked full of breakfast goodies. There was nothing you could possibly find fault with at the apartment. Five star cleanliness and also in a great location. As I was there for a combination of Work and Holiday it proved a fantastic spot to be in and Dorothy was very helpful on places to visit and even attended my Book Launch event at The Scent Bar on Beverly Blvd and she was very enthusiastic about my Candles too, I would count Dorothy as a friend and I would highly recommend her apartment to anyone looking for a relaxing place to stay in LA! She and her husband are lovely people , helpful kind and extremely welcoming.
Thank you so much for all the kind words and it was great to hear that you and Ocean enjoyed your stay, we absolutely love the candle and it is right inside our bedroom, the fragrance is heavenly, where can we order more of those? Keep in touch and we are looking forward for your return visit. God bless you
Dorothy made us feel very welcome, she left food in the fridge for us and the place was spotlessly clean. It looked exactly like the pictures. The location was great for us because we had to be downtown and at the beach and this was nicely halfway between and close to many things that we needed to do.
Lovely place and a lovely host. She had bought us breakfast and some other supplies before our arrival and that was just great! Nice and clean and really comfy beds.
We stayed in the rental for 9 days at the end of December. The first thing we noticed is that it looked 100% like the photo and was much bigger than what we expected. Everything you needed to be at home was there...ironing board, laundry on-site etc. Dorothy is very very kind and even filled the refrigerator with food so that we have something to eat the next morning before going grocery shopping. The premise was clean however during our stay, there were some issues...
The very first day we arrived, we noticed cockroaches. I spoke to Dorothy and she had someone come by to do a treatment however I guess it takes time to work as we saw and were killing cockroaches until the 7th day of our stay.
We arrived during a cold snap...4C (40F) and colder. The pilot light in the apartment's heater was not switched on. We have no heat that day. The next day the heat was turned on yay!. The third day we noticed serious sparks and arching from the heating system that we could not ignore. A repair person had to come in past midnight to address it. The system could not be repaired that night and we were given space heaters however they did not work...another cold night for us. The following night we got new space heaters but they also did not work. We eventually found out it was an electrical issue and that it was now repaired. We finally had heat for the last 4 days. Occasionally we also noticed that the gas stove had problems igniting and the microwave would not warm up food.
Through all of this, Dorothy and her Assistant were extremely responsive. They had someone out to fix the issues in no time which we truly appreciated and she was apologetic, bringing us more blankets, fruits and cookies.
The neighbourhood is fairly quiet and we felt safe there. It is very close to the main strip and famous attractions and we were pleased with that. One thing to keep in mind is if renting a car, the parking is on the street and after 6pm finding a spot can be extremely difficult and frustrating. We drove around a lot to find one.
Overall the place is nice and I imagine it is even better without those issues we encountered.
Thank you for spending your short 9 days with us, it was unfortunate you experienced some issues during your stay which is extremely unusual. We hope our quick response with an added credit of 3 days rental compensated your discomfort. You came a day after a major Santa Ana wind where heating pilots got shut off accidentally and insects stucked through the Aircon vents. Our property is located in the heart of the Historical Hollywood, parking is sometimes a challenge in the evening. Overall, we hoped you enjoyed your stay with us and we do our best to make our guests feel great during their stay.
Dorothy was an extremely warm and welcoming host. The apartment is wonderful, spacious and comfortable. The neighborhood is close to Santa Monica blvd and 6 minute drive from Second City where I was taking Comedy and Improv classes. A quick drive to the theaters and restaurants in Frankin Village and city Movie Cinema's, the location was great. Dorothy was easy to get in touch with and even sent a gift on my departure, I'd definitely stay again!
Dorothy's apartment was in a great position, we felt very safe there. It was easy to access the walk of fame and Chinese theatre by bus (if feeling lazy) or foot. The closest metro stop is also in walking distance. Dorothy was available immediately by phone when we were having trouble accessing the apartment on arrival, only through our own tiredness, she had left clear instructions. The apartment is very spacious and has everything required to cook meals for yourself. The beds are comfortable and the apartment was very clean. Dorothy checked in on us during our stay through air B and B and even left us a thank you gift. Overall I would recommend her apartment to anyone who wants to stay in this area of LA.
Dorthy was amazing !!!! The apartment was spacious and cute . It looks exactly how it looks in the pictures .
