About this listing
Bright West Los Angeles loft space! High ceilings, quiet area and centrally located.
Loft space with room for an air mattress if needed for more guests - When more than 2 guests, I will move the futon downstairs and inflate the air mattress and put the foam mattress up
You get the upstairs loft that has a window and empty closet and some empty book case opening. Upstairs in the loft, there’s an inflatable mattress that sleeps 2 people and a foam mattress that sleeps another 2. The entire place has laminate flooring and central air conditioning, there’s gated underground parking as well. I also have a La-Z Boy sectional couch with two reclining chairs in the common (living) room where I have a 60” flat screen TV with premium cable and a futon. I have free Wi-Fi. Coin operated washer and dryer in the complex. We would share the Kitchen, restroom and living room, but since I am at work most of the day, it will be all yours!
You get the airy loft space upstairs and the bottom to share with me. You also have access to our building’s Jacuzzi. They are working on remodeling it so it’s not very new, you can access it through the building next door by taking the elevator to the rooftop. The coin operated washing machine room is downstairs in the parking lot by the recycling bins. The wash takes 35 minutes and it costs $1.25 in quarters and $1.00 to dry in 45 minutes. The Big Blue Bus system is 2 blocks away and within walking distance of Sawtelle "Japantown". In Los Angeles, Sawtelle Boulevard is where to go for spectacular soba, Korean short-rib sausages, pristine sushi and more.
Interaction with Guests
I do share the space with my super friendly English Bulldog: Biggie Smalls. If having a dog is bothersome, I can make arrangements for him to go elsewhere but need to make special arrangements ahead of time. He's super friendly! I work mostly all day Monday through Friday and enjoy my weekends with family. I will give you your privacy but will definitely be available for any recommendations or suggestions you might need.
I love how I am very close to everything. 15 minutes away from downtown, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, LAX, and 5 minutes away from Santa Monica and Culver City.
The Santa Monica Big Blus Bus and Culver City Bus systems are walking distance from me. I am happy to help guide you through the public transportation system or any vehicle directions you might need.
Smoking using an ashtray only!
Respect the house and respect me!
Adriana est sympathique, le logement ressemblait a ce qui etait decrit, le quartier etait plutot sympa, bien que tres residentiel.
Mais le gros probleme c'est l'odeur du chien, qui est vraiment tres forte. Adriana a essayer d'y remedier en laissant le chien chez ses parents, et je lui en remercie, mais l'odeur etait quand meme la, et il etait impossible de dormir sans les fenetres ouvertes. Du coup on entend le bruit de l'autoroute juste a cote toute la nuit. La proprete laisse a desirer egalement dans la salle de bains. Le prix est trop eleve selon moi par rapport a la qualite du sejour.
Very centrally located closed to Beverly Hills and other hot spots.
Based on the pictures we had other expectations about the apartment and our place to sleep.
The place was little run down and had a strong smell of the dog (which was cute and friendly)
Best was the parking slot in the guest garage because it is always difficult to find a free parking lot.
I read most of the reviews after booking (due to rating was so good). In upstairs there was new a bunk bed which was good and linen were nice and clean. Of course the upstairs wasn't spacious but big enough for sleeping (2+3). Toilet/bathroom was decently clean. Especially if the kitchen(and whole downstairs) had been properly cleaned (not just tidied up) and got rid of the strong smell of the dog, it would be a nice place to stay. Good location. This was our first Airbnb and due to this experience (3 nights) we stayed rest of the our holiday in hotels (7).
My family and I felt like we walked into a completely different apartment from the one shown in the pictures.
It looked like Adriana make a very surface level attempt to clean her apartment, but it was most definitely in need of a deep scrub. Hair from her English bulldog covered the couch, and a the apartment had a general scent from the dog itself (which was not adequately covered by the incense lit minutes before our arrival).
The air conditioning has a difficult time cooling the upstairs (where we stayed), so expect it to be a little warm.
If you plan on parking in the garage, be aware that our rental scraped coming in and out on the ground (it's a very steep entrance and exit).
Adriana greeted us warmly, but the state of the apartment was much below our expectations.
A strategic stay really not far from the airport, really convenient even if you cannot forget the presence of the smelly dog. :)
Thank you for welcoming us.
A fraud: the first time we used Airbnb and the experience has been extremely disappointing. Although the owner, Adriana, greeted us with kindness, there is no resemblance of the house and the conditions in which reality show photos and descriptions posted on Airbnb. We were five people and slept in two inflatable beds (one of which punctured) in a minimum space located at the top of the stairs, and in a fold down bed (futon) in the living room. In the place upstairs t we couldn´t move. We hadn´t sheets, only slim blankets, gnawed... One of the beds was broken, which made wake us with back pain. The smell of dog pee is permeated throughout the house and dirt is in all. The carpet in the bathroom should take months without being washed. The only positive is that the house is in a very quiet and well located for visiting Hollywood or Santa Monica neighborhood. The price I paid for the two nights in these conditions seems to me an abuse and fraud. I would not recommend it.
Una estafa: la primera vez que utilizamos Airbnb y la experiencia ha sido tremendamente decepcionante. A pesar de que la dueña, Adriana, nos recibió y atendió con amabilidad, no existe ningún parecido de la casa y de sus condiciones en realidad con lo que muestran las fotos y la descripción publicadas en Airbnb. Eramos cinco personas y dormimos en dos camas inflables (una de ellas pinchada) en un espacio mínimo ubicado en la parte superior de las escaleras, y en una cama plegable abajo en el salón. En la parte superior no hay espacio para cuatro personas, apenas podíamos movernos, ni cabían nuestras maletas. No nos puso sabanas de arriba, sólo unas mantas finas, roídas y rotas. Una de las camas estaba pinchada, con lo que amanecíamos hechos un guiñapo y con dolor de espalda. El olor a pis del perro está impregnado en toda la casa y la suciedad reina en general. La alfombra del baño debe llevar meses sin ser lavada. Lo único positivo de la casa es que está en un barrio muy tranquilo y bien ubicado para ir a visitar Hollywood o Santa Mónica. El precio que he pagado por las dos noches en tales condiciones me parece un abuso y un fraude. No lo recomendaría ni por asomo.
About the Host, Adriana
I am a single lady that bought her own Condo and has a loft space for anyone interested. I have an English Bulldog as my companion and he is very friendly but loves attention! He looks mean but is so lovable!
I love to cook, travel and to watch movies.
I am mostly working all day except weekends but I will stay out of your way. You can have access to the kitchen, living room and dining area. I am new to this but would love to start hosting and meeting all kinds of people.
