Prior to arrival Ron was very helpful with directions and transport options. The apartment was as described. We were told to vacate the apartment no later than 11am which I thought was odd (and a bit rude) considering check out time is 12 midday.
What a fabulous apartment and location! My entire experience with Ron was fantastic and check in was a breeze. The apartment had everything we needed and was the perfect size for our family of four. Just 1.3km to the beach so perfect for a morning run. Ron has heaps of little bits and pieces in the kitchen which helped with cooking. Wifi is super reliable and fast. Neighborhood is quiet, we didn't hear any of the Neighbours. Bed was incredibly comfortable. We would highly recommend.
Ron was really quick in replying to all our communications, he had everything prepared for our arrival and gave really detailed and clear instructions so it was easy for us to find his place and get settled with no issues. His apartment is fantastic, perfect for 2 couples with 2 spacious rooms and an amazing roof terrace that is perfect to chill on all day and enjoy the sun. We had breakfast out there every morning. Ron also prepared a welcome booklet of dining suggestions and other points of interest in the area. When we arrived Ron arranged to pop round briefly to say hello and answer any questions we had, his advice on getting around LA was very useful and helped us in the following days. Overall a great stay, great apartments and great hospitality, thank you Ron.
Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour dans l'appartement de Ron. Lui et son frère ont été très réactifs chaque fois que nous avions besoin d'un renseignement. L.appartement est très agréable, calme, clair, spacieux et bien èquipé. Le patio est une extension très agrèable. Très bien situé, à côté de plusieurs restaurants et à quelques blocs de la plage.
Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement.
very comfortable，Ron and his brother is very friendly，and give us a lot help！
The location is wonderful!
We loved it. Plus the terrace is so nice to relax after a long day.
Near to the beach, restaurants and shops.
The appartment is so cozy.
I would defenitely recommend this place.
Ron is a great host, very present by phone and email... He'd respond very quickly.
Our stay at Patio Paradise was wonderful. We had some travel snafus getting in, and Ron was every bit accommodating.
Patio Paradise met and went beyond our vacation needs as we found ourselves to be within walking distance of the beach, promenade, and various restaurants in the SM area. It was wonderful to have all these things within a short trot.
The place itself is cozy and features supplies that fit our needs. When needing to prepare food, we had all the basics to fix up a meal. We had no need for a microwave, which was good because there wasn't one in the unit.
All in all, it was a wonderful stay thanks to a wonderful host. I highly recommend Patio Paradise to all who come across.
