About this listing
Quiet apartment complex, close to Pasadena and downtown L.A. Parking available on street, but if you don't have a car, not to worry--public transportation is only one block away! The complex also has two pools and one hot tub. Apartment filled with folk art from my world travels. I also have cable T.V.
You'll have the spare room to yourself, which has a queen size futon. You'll have access to a shared bathroom, kitchen and living room.
People tell me I'm a good host. Retired from Postal Service. Over 30yrs working in the theater and art scene in L.A. and elsewhere.
The place is located a bit far from LA proper, but was perfect for my needs (I was attending a wedding 1 block away). The accommodations are what one should expect at the price point, and I had no issue with the futon or the bathroom. The host, Mario, is a nice guy and very easy going. The one thing I'd note is that he has a collection of tribal masks hanging from the walls, which is fine in the living room, but a tad off-putting hanging right above the futon as one is trying to sleep.
Great room . Pretty much everything was fine . Mario was really gentle and helpful . He droped us off and picked up a lot cuz we didny have a car . He even dropped us off at Greyhound bus station when we left . Thanks !
mario is a very good host. i arrived late that night. he opened the gate for me in 11pm. room is clean and quiet. everything is just ok!
The location is in the suburbs more than an hour from LA.Mario is very cooperative.He picked me up from the Greyhound station at 7am.Dropped me at the Light Rail Transit station whenever I required.Highly recommended if time is not a factor.
Mario é extremamente atencioso. Tivemos ótimos dias em sua casa. A localização é ótima e o bairro é seguro.
Mario is a great host, we got along with him straight away. Everything was as it was described on his profile. He drove us to the station and picked us up whenever we needed it. It was lovely to hang out with him and talk about movies and traveling. But also he gave us our privacy when we wanted it. The pool and hot tub in his apartment complex are great and we loved relaxing there. There is a supermarket and more shops right around the corner. We had a very positive experience with Mario.
Mario is a great host. He is considerate, helpful and genuinely interested in people. He took us to the metro station every day.
His flat is located in a nice-looking and safe neighborhood with a swimming pool!
As the pictures reflects the room has a futon - not a real bed.
