Interaction with Guests
We are just an AIRBNB message, phone call or text away. Most guests will never see us, but we are here when you need us. For longer stays please inquire about maid service.
If your looking for a relatively quite place to settle in that is walking distance to a wide range of restaurants, bars, stores and other amenities and want to live like a local this is an excellent location.
Major North / South and East / West bus lines are just a couple of short blocks away while many visitors either rent a car or download UBER or LYFT for getting around town.
Other Things to Note
We have 20MBS internet.
Depending on your cell carrier service and phone it may be necessary to use WiFi calling while in the unit for maximum cell coverage.
We provide hotel size soap and shampoo and an initial roll of toilet paper.
Just say yes to healthy lungs and keep the smokes from rolling off your tongue. We love the furry guys but the landlord says no to pets of any kind, so if you don't mind take this vacation without them this time. We like to have fun as everyone does, all things in moderation, that's quite time from 11 to 8 so the neighbors won't hate. Come as you are and leave as it was, all things considered these rules aren't so bad, we don't think they will make you go mad!
This was my 2nd stay at one of Matthews apartements and hopefully not my last. The place is exactly as described, very clean and in a great and safe neighborhood, close to alot of things relevant for tourists. If you look for a affordable private place, look no further. A hotel has nothing on this. I can fully recommend Matthews places. You'll have a wonderful time here.
Matthews place was great ! Super communicative and above and beyond accommodating. The place is located in the best place in (website hidden) looks just like the pictures the bathroom most important was super clean. I had the best stay there for my birthday week.I am very thankful to have found this great pad. Thank you!!
Matthew's place is at the epicenter of WeHo bars and both Melrose & Santa Monica Blvd. are in walking distance.
The place was clean, well-decorated and creatively used the space (which is located in a quintessential neighborhood).
Check-in was fast & easy, and Matthew was readily available for questions & concerns.
Overall, I will be staying in a StayInLA residence next time I am in Los Angeles.
The apartment was exactly as pictured and very clean! Perfectly located for traveling around the area - we found walking quite nice but public transport is just as easy to access. We easily found a park on the street outside of the apartment when we first arrived, just look out for the street cleaning signs! Would definitely recommend this apartment .
The place was as pictured-- a small (but not cramped), nicely furnished, quiet studio apartment in a cute 1920's courtyard complex on a pretty street in West Hollywood, close to restaurants, bars, and groceries. The bathroom was simple but clean and the shower was plenty hot. There's a dressing area with built-in storage and ample room to hang clothes and stow your suitcase. I didn't meet Matthew, but he was quick to respond to texts and emails. Checking in and out is very easy, via a convenient lockbox. You might have to spend a few minutes looking for an on-street parking space, but I was always able to find something within a couple of hundred feet for the four weeknights of my stay.
Place was exactly as described. It was clean, quaint, in a great location and perfect for a couple of nights. Seemed that Matthew was really busy, but he was kind enough to call and email me to check in. I did find the $99 cleaning fee high for such a short stay (2 nights), especially considering that doing one's dishes (coffee pot and a cup for me) is one of the rules of the house. But, the dishes were done and overall I enjoyed the place and my stay very much.

About the Host, Matthew
I have lived in Los Angeles since 2000 and have moved 9 times, living all over the city and in all types of rentals, both furnished and unfurnished. My business is real estate while my creative endeavors involve photography and interior design. My goal is to create environments that make guests truly feel like they have a second home away from home while they are in town.
