Natalie's home was very clean, comfortable, and quiet to stay in. Located conveniently in downtown LA where Uber rides were under 5-6 dollars to get to all the major areas! I would love come again!

I had a wonderful time staying with Natalie and very much enjoyed getting to hear some of her stories. Would very much recommend to anyone looking to stay near downtown!

Good place to stay if you're interested in the downtown LA area. Easy to Uber to most places. Like USC, Dodger stadium, Arts District, and metro train station.

Natalie's place was great! She provided easy instructions to follow and her place is a short uber to downtown. I met Natalie briefly and she was really nice!

My wife and I spent a lovely weekend at Natalie's, though we never actually met her in person. She unexpectedly spent the weekend helping sick friends with child care. That said, she was great about communicating with us and we found her instructions clear (where she left a key, where to park, etc.), her place cozy, easy for us to settle into, and in a great location. Our main destination was Little Tokyo and this was a comfortable mile walk away. Lingering over breakfast on her balcony was a highlight, with an amazing view of downtown. We would definitely consider staying at Natalie's again!

Really wonderful and central location right near Chinatown! Natalie was so kind to us, and the balcony had an amazing view too :)

Natalie is a great host! She has awesome stories to share and is overall a great person to talk to. Her apartment has a great view from the balcony, and it is very well kept. My guest and I would love to come back the next time we fly back in LA.
