  • Alyson is possibly the worst person I've ever met in my 62 years. Stay away from her place because she could ruin your vacation as she did to mine! I've had had a traumatic experience with this hostess, Alyson, and please let me explain myself. I'm 62 years old, naturalized American citizen of Greek descent permanently residing in Greece for the last thirty years. I'm married and I have a son about the age of Alyson. I'm a university professor teaching economics and finance at Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University, in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia. I'm visiting LA on a business trip and I'll stay here for two weeks. I've traveled extensively throughout the world both for business and pleasure. The first time that I used B&B services on my own was six years ago on a vacation trip to Scotland with my wife and it was a memorable experience. So, when I recently heard about airbnb on CNN I decided to try it again, believing that it would be a guaranteed pleasant experience because it is provided in an organized manner by professionals. You see, I belong to this species who enjoy meeting different people around the world in direct personal contact and not anonymously in a cold hotel environment. After searching among a few available room offerings matching my traveling needs I selected, unfortunately for me, Alyson's place for the first week planning to stay somewhere else in the second week. I chose this hostess because I was fooled by some good reviews from previous guests ignoring the warnings of Daniele, which then I considered a bit of exaggeration. We exchanged some emails discussing the details of my staying in her house and when reached an agreement I informed her that I'll be arriving in LAX on Saturday 1/6/2013. In my last email to her I mentioned that my plane was scheduled to land at 6:19 pm. However, due to unforeseen circumstances the airplane landed at 10:30 pm instead. My detailed trip, which Alison was informed about, was as follows: Athens - Stockholm on 1/6,Stockholm - Newark, arriving at 1:30 pm, and departing at 3:06 Newark - LAX. Total travel time from Athens to LA was two days, of which 22 hours were spent in the aircrafts. There is a paradox in Murphy's Law, which says that "anything that can go wrong,will go wrong". And this law hit upon me very hard: I missed the plane from Newark to LA because it took me 2 and 1/2 hours to reach the checking point for LA, instead of the 1 and 1/2 hours...

  • My stay with Allyson and Gary was wonderful, and it was neat to spent election night with them watching the events on their big screen TV. The house is beautiful, the other airbnb guest was such a sweetheart, and the animals were great to have around. As a cat person myself, if was a nice touch of home to have Charlotte and Lilly snoozing on my bed, though Allyson is so incredibly attentive, I know that if you preferred not to have the cats visiting your room, she would definitely accommodate. I know where I will be trying to book my stay on my next LA visit.

  • Unfortunately, I did not enjoy my stay with Alyson at all and it was a
    very poor experience. I experienced several issues while
    staying at this property and would highly recommend that you avoid making a
    reservation with this person.
    There was a severe lack of communication on Alyson's end that left me
    frustrated and un-prepared.
    These are the facts:
    She did not provide me with a key to the property but she told me the door
    was open until 2.00 AM.
    The second morning around 9.00 she confronted me in a very unfriendly was
    telling me I was very very loud during the night
    and the rules of the house are written on a message inside my room. I was
    very surprise about her attitute ( I simply went
    to the bathroom ) but I apologized for the noise.
    The third nightI arrived at 11.00 PM one evening the door was locked and I
    knocked the door for 20 minutes to reach Alyson with no
    success. The ringbell was not working and I had no cell phone with me that
    night to call her.
    As such, I had to go stay at friends house,for the night. The next morning
    at 9.30 I went to the house and the door was still locked. I knocked again
    and her father opened me telling me "shhh there are sleeping". I said to
    him that the night before the door was locked, he said he didn't do it. I
    therefore wrote a message to Alyson telling what happened the night before
    and asking
    to let the door open for the night. I put the message very visible on the
    living room.
    The same night I arrived at home at 10 PM and there was a message outside
    the door telling "Keep door closed".
    I did not understand the message and I went outside the house. My message
    was still there and there was no reply.
    I felt were unconfortable so I decided to leave the house with all my
    belongings.

    I confronted her about this she made me feel as though I was a nuisance and
    further more, when I requested a refund for this night
    (as I did not stay that evening) she denied this request.
    I had also invited a friend to come spend some time with me while I was at
    the property as Alyson had made no mention to me that
    she did not want any visitors. She became very upset and said that I had
    brought strangers into her home. As such, I unfortunately
    felt chastised and like I was being punished when I feel it was her
    responsibility to inform me that she did not want any guests
    in her home.
    Additionally, while I was staying at the property, I experienced some
    trouble with my car while I was there. It was vandalized
    during one night while parked on the other side of her street house ( air
    was taken off from tires ). I'm not saying the did it but was an unpleasant
    surprise.

    Unfortunately, my experience at Alyson's property ruined my trip and I
    would never stay there again. I encourage you to think
    twice before you book with this host"

  • I've been having a great stay over the past month with Alyson and Gary. We became fast friends and I feel like we're family! The location is great, the house is lovely, and they have been so accommodating and kind to me. I'm booking for at least another month! :)

  • Lovely lovely home and couple. Very attentive hosts and great location. Alyson and Gary made me feel right at home, even inviting me to enjoy some homemade cookies and conversation one evening. Their home is beautiful and in a very convenient location to many of the city's attractions. There are some wonderful eateries in the neighborhood and ample street parking near the house. I would definitely recommend staying here.

  • Great place to stay. The house is a mix of old school LA and modern living. They have two dogs that are a delight to watch play. Very friendly people and a great setting. Easy to get to from the highway.
