About This Listing

This place is truly magical.

So far we only had great experiences with our guests.
We had a fantastic time at Fortuna's apartment. The furnishing is stunning and the area around is very beautiful! Though we had our privacy at the apartment it was nice to chat with Fortuna and Barbara and they had great tips for restaurants around.
We would love to come back to Los Angeles and would definitely stay at this great apartment again.
Such a nice spot - beautiful grounds, loved the area, walking distance to a lot of really nice restaurants and shops. Arrival and departure was convenient and Fortuna had an associate meet me to get the key. The apartment was quiet, decorated very nicely and was very comfortable for a few nights stay. Would definitely want to return on my next visit to LA. Thanks Fortuna!
A beautiful gem in the heart of the city. Fortuna was quick to respond and very welcoming. The unit was peaceful, well kept and stylish. I will be checking this listing every time I visit the city.
