We are quite a very busy family so we see our guests in passing mostly.

In the winter we light the fireplace and invite guests into the home to relax and chill by the fire if they choose to.

The interaction is dependent on everyone's schedule and desire.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was my first Airbnb experience, and it was definitely a pleasant one. The space was neat, tidy and spacious. The location is perfect for someone visiting the LA/Hollywood area. It's minutes away from the Melrose Ave. boutiques and is right off of Hollywood Blvd. Even though it's close to everything, it still feels neighborhood-y and safe. On-street parking is free and I never had a hard time finding a spot.

    Unfortunately, I wasn't able to meet Angelyna. However, based on several phone conversations with her and the reviews others have left, I know she's an all-around awesome person. Very helpful and easily accessible for questions/concerns. I did meet her husband Paul and their son - they were both very polite and welcoming. I also got some quality time with their kitty, Frankie. Super cute.

    As one other poster commented before, the road noise from Franklin Ave. was a little bit loud at first. By the second day though, I didn't notice it near as much, and it never kept me from sleep, being comfortable, etc. Overall, great first experience with Airbnb and I'd definitely stay at Angelyna's again the next time I travel to LA. It's a great combination of price, location, space and quality.

  • This is a comfy little place in a great neighborhood if you desire to be near H'wood/Los Feliz. Angelyna and her husband Paul are very welcoming people and their guest room is a private little oasis that makes it feel like visiting friends or family instead of the sterility of most hotels. Great jacuzzi bathtub lets you soak away the grime of LA, but it's a glorious grime to be sure. A tip: bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper as the noise of Franklin Ave. can be imposing at night and do take to heart the "bohemian" description of the room. Overall, though, choice lodgings.

  • I needed a short-term place to stay while waiting for my apartment to become available and Angelyna was extremely accommodating on such short notice. The apartment is delightful, as reviewed by other guests, and the location is great. I have to emphasize the kind-heartedness of the host and her family; I couldn't have asked for anything better. A beautiful home and family. Thanks, Angelyna!

  • This was my very first experience with Airbnb and what a start!

    Angelyna is the most amazing host. Welcoming, warm, a lovely lady. I had the pleasure of meeting the rest of her family who are just as great. Very creative and inspiring people.

    The room is very large, spotless and the connivence of having my own entrance was an added bonus! It was also great having internet access, which was extremely fast.

    The location is perfect and Angelyna is on hand with any questions or needs. I didn't have a car but was able to get everywhere by public transport or Taxi when I went to Warner Bros studios.
    Angelyna even offered to take me to the beach one day, but sadly time did not permit (above and beyond any extras!)
    I had a fantastic stay and will not hesitate in booking with Angelyna again, when I return to LA.

    Thank you so much!

  • We stayed here at the end of August 2010. The place is exactly like the pictures and had enough room for 2 people. It was like we rented an entire apartment, not a private room.

    The location was close enough to all Hollywood attractions if you had a car. By the way, if you are planning on staying in LA you MUST have a car, i really don't recommend public transportation.

    In the room, everything was very clean. İ liked the bathroom best. It would be even better if there was a fridge of some kind. The dog (i guess her name was princess) was very shy, and never gave us any discomfort. Angelyna and Paul was quite helpful in times of need. It was great staying at their place.

    September 2010
  • The space is clean, cozy, private w/ its own bathroom. It was as described w/ a separate entrance,shared deck and back yard. Angelyna was pleasant host. I enjoyed my stay in this space.


    August 2010
  • Angelyna was TOTALLY AMAZING! She was the best host I have ever had and went above and beyond to make my experience a pure delight. She even went out of her way to pick up an item for me at a local store so it would be there before I got there, and drove me around on a few errands. Angelyna is one in a million, and I treasure her not only as an AirBnB host, but now as a friend.

    The house itself is wonderful -- it has real history and charm, being a former home of Charlie Chaplin, and the room is a nice, secluded, attached "cottage" with its own bathroom and bedroom. it's a pure delight and a hidden gem of Hollywood.

    I highly recommend Angelyna to anyone and everyone looking for something in the area. Except of course, if I'm in town, cause I have dibs!

  • Angelina is a big hearted, beautiful person. A wonderful fun family, thank you for sharing your lifestyle with me. The yard sale was fun!
