Yvonne's place is really nice, clean and quiet. She left us breakfast in the refrigerator and made us feel welcome. Ralph's is just across the street and the neighborhood is friendly. I would definitely choose her house again next time visiting LA.
Die Unterkunft von Yvonne war wunderbar. Es war alles super für unseren Kurzaufenthalt vorbereitet. Schlüsselübergabe war problemlos. In der Wohnung lagen Informationen zur Wohnung und Umgebung bereit. Im Kühlschrank waren Bagels, Milch, Wasser, Käse & Marmelade für ein erstes kleines Frühstück. Wir haben uns von Anfang an heimisch gefühlt. Yvonnes Mann hat dann noch die Parkberechtigung vorbei gebracht und uns ein paar Restaurant Tipps gegeben. Verhungern und Verdursten braucht man in der Nachbarschaft nicht. Beim Einkauf bei Ralph´s (Supermarkt) gegenüber unbedingt den Haustürschlüsselanhänger zeigen. Wir waren überrascht, was wir damit gespart hatten.
Jedesmal wenn wir Yvonne kontaktiert hatten, haben wir umgehend eine Antwort von Ihr bekommen.
Wer also einen Besuch von Los Angeles plant, hat hier eine super Unterkunft.
Wow what a great stay! Yvonne's place was quiet and in a great neighborhood with easy access to major roads so we could explore other parts of LA as well. The description is spot on and Yvonne made us feel very welcome. She left us some bagels, fruit, and coffee. There was also a large library of books. This was our first airbnb experience. Yvonne set the standard pretty high for our future airbnb stays : )
My boyfriend and I stayed for a few days and really enjoyed our stay. Yvonne's home is very comfortable and the location is great and close to everything. The only upset, was that we had thought that we would have more space and not just a portion of the home. We knew we would be sharing but didn't know that it was such close quarters to the other family that also lives there. Other than that, she is a great host. Very sweet and easy to get ahold of. I would definitely stay here again!
Thanks again Yvonne!
About the Host, Yvonne
We are a traveling family, we love to explore new places and meet new people. Originally from England Steve (my husband) and I traveled extensively before settling down in LA 25+ years ago. Our 11 year old twin sons also have the travel bug, although because of school and time most of our traveling is in the US and we mainly go camping.
We love having friends over for dinner (I love to cook) or just to hang out with us.
