We liked this place. Big benefit is garrage. Great location near beach. Good commumication with David. We had there everything we needed.
We Loved this apartment!!! In a great Location with great neighbors. David is an Excellent host!!! Just follow the directions that are sent! :-) I will always look for the availability of this apartment first when I will be in the area.
Very tiny place, but less than a block to the beach which is a definite plus. Aside from the vagrants of Venice, would stay here again.
David is an attentative and helpful host! The place is humble and nice with a beautiful view.
My fiancée and I had a great experience. We were able to do some grocery shopping and use the kitchen to have breakfast. It was a perfect location for us. We love a the view of the beach. I would recommend the apartment to friends. Keep in mind, it is a small apartment, there is only a hot plate so you cannot do much cooking. The location is perfect though. David does allow you to park in his garage which is extremely helpful
Everything was good. The Appartment is as is was discribed in the offer. For "Germans" may be a little "very American" (carpet in the room, kitchen a little poor equipped, bed very soft) - but the location is FANTASTIC and David is extremely friendly and helpful :-) I would return always and always again...

About the Host, David
I am an LA native grew up near the Beach became a musician and played in Rock and Roll Bands during the 70's and was very fortunate to see the world with my bandmates. Ended up living in Aspen CO for 20 years and then moved back here to the beach 4 years ago. Still can't decide what I like more between the ocean and the mountains. Oh well I will survive. One thing I do not like is traffic and I try to stay out of it- for sure during peak travel times. I have been a yoga instructor and I love a good time-travel yarn. Presently I have been working on my musical called The Perfect Pitch about an epic struggle between Music and Noise with the fate of mankind at stake.
