Host: Firstly, the host, Gabriel, is very responsive. He answers emails quickly and gets answers to your questions even if you have many, so you can have no worries about any surprises when you rent the apartment. Very nice, easy going and friendly host.
Location: the location is in a nice quiet neighbourhood, although there were one night that there were a truck that came in the middle of the night and was working on the street for a while but by and large, we had good sleeps. We felt safe even when reaching the apartment late. There is nothing much on the street except for one 99 cents store down the street but that what makes it quiet and pleasant if that is what you want. There is only one parking permit for one car which is just right outside the apartment but Gabriel identified another free parking spot if you have more than one car just one street down.
Price: For the price we paid, I think it is a very good deal, considering we have looked at other deals in airbnb and in booking hotels or motels. You get a place that is private, clean and comfortable at a very competitive price.
Apartment: Now, it is a 2 bedroom and 1 bath. Our party was myself and a couple with their baby. The 2 bedrooms were more than big enough for us. The bedroom at the back is bigger. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with a nice bed. I think 4 adults can stay here comfortably but you have to ask Gabriel if they can take one or two more. With only one bath, might be a problem with people who hog bathrooms but a little consideration works well for our party of 3 and a baby. The apartment is on the 2nd storey but it is just a short few steps up the stairs. Might be a problem for people who have difficulties walking up the stairs or have really heavy luggages. We have a total of 8 bags, 4 of them heavy ones after all the shopping, but we managed well. And the overall apartment has a very unique feel to it. It is not going to be your modern contemporary apartment but one with character. Ultimately, it is clean and comfortable, that what matters to us on a vacation. And also Gabriel made almost everything in the fridge available to us and I took the liberties to drink 3 cans of his diet coke Oops! Also, on the last night, our baby vomitted milk on the bedsheets, made a stain, we informed Gabriel about it and he was cool about it and tells us it is ok. I guess this is how renting apartments from airbnb is about, respecting the place as your own.
Thanks Gabriel for a great stay!
This is definitely the best place I've stayed during my two weeks' tour trip in the states! Gabriel is a very very nice host and makes the guests feel as convenient and comfortable as at home. Everything is as good or even better than his own discription. I will definitely come back on my next trip to la if Gabriel still welcome his guests:)
Myself and 3 other people stayed here for 2 nights, Gabriel was a wonderful host. The apartment is just as pictured and described, it's roomy and super comfortable, everything was clean and organized yet definitely a place with character. Lots of parking available in the neighborhood and centrally located to many tourist areas (15 minutes to Universal Studios, 15 minutes to Warner Brothers Studios, 25 minutes to Santa Monica). Gabriel was friendly, communicative, very accommodating and quick to respond to any questions we had. Overall it was a very pleasant stay.
We stayed at Gabriel's place for 3 nights. The location was perfect for us as it is very close to Hollywood blvd, Beverly Hills and Universal Studio. The apartment was very lovely and spacious. The two bedrooms were very comfortable and private.
Gabriel is super nice and friendly. He was at the apartment to welcome us and walk us through the apartment. We mainly communicate through text messages and he responded messages very quickly. He also provided soft drinks and bottle waters in the fridge.
Parking permit was provided by the host. We didn't have any troubles finding parking spots.
I will highly recommend this lovely place!
Gabriel was there to welcome us into the apartment, even after we were running very late from our previous destination. He made us feel very comfortable and helped us with any questions. The apartment is exactly as described, was very clean and lovely. Perfect for a short stay in LA.
The apartment is very cute and charming. Eclectic and fun. The kitchen is large and very functional; Gabriel so generously provided coffee, water and sodas. Bedrooms are also roomy and private. And the back patio - Wow! A great space for a group of people; works well for both a quiet/private getaway or a very social affair.
Very conveniently and centrally located if you're hanging around Hollywood area.
