CHECK OUT OUR OTHER PROFESSIONALLY DESIGNED APARTMENTS BY VISITING OUR HOST PAGE:
Professionally designed by Jennifer Ridel of Studio Fenix|LA we welcome you to explore our professionally run, newly furnished, well located, charming bungalow where you will find yourself a home away from home and close to many areas to visit like a local or hit the town like a tourist. Everything is close by including high and low end grocery stores, restaurants, bars, clubs, gyms, theaters, parks, tennis and basketball courts and so much more, most within walking distance.
We professionally designed and manage this bungalow exclusively for guests looking for an affordable, well presented and well located accommodation who are looking for a local experience and privacy not found in a hotel. We are close by, living and working within a 5 - 10 minute drive of the bungalow so that we can be here to quickly address any needs that may arise. Our aim is to ensure a memorable experience and build long term relationships with those who frequent out town on business and pleasure.
Our courtyard bungalow is west facing with windows additionally on the North and South sides and gets lots of sunlight throughout the day. For those times when the sun is just too much or you want to sleep in turn the mini-blinds down and draw the blackout curtains for complete darkness. The neighborhood is very popular and well located between trendy Melrose Ave and the Santa Monica Blvd you are on the border of West Hollywood and will find many creative types including actors, agents, directors and producers living in the immediate area.
Getting out for a short walk you will find lots of bakeries, restaurants, cafe's, coffee shops, bars, clothing boutiques, hair and nail salons, burger joints and other spots in the neighborhood.
We offer many comforts of home including a well appointed kitchen with microwave, stove, coffee maker, toaster, cookware, glassware, towels and cleaning supplies. We provide laundry detergent and dryer sheets for use at our on-site coin operated laundry. Additionally we provide an iron and full size ironing board. The unit comes with a 32" flat screen television with cable and high speed WiFi internet. There is a good amount of closet and storage space for all of your clothing and other items. The bed is QUEEN size and quite comfortable with four pillows, a comforter, quilt and high quality linens.
For your comfort the unit comes with a window A/C unit and gas heat. There is a ceiling fan which keeps the air well circulated. We have just replaced all of the windows with new double pane windows which help keep you comfortable and the bungalow quite.
We encourage you to drop us a line and let us know the type of experience you are looking for and we will do our best to accommodate or point you in the right direction.
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!
Matthew was extremely professional and very responsive/helpful, as many of these reviews have mentioned. Great host! The apartment is exactly as pictured. Clean, cute, comfortable, and in a good location.
Parking can be an issue, but it's only a problem on Monday and Tuesday mornings from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. for street cleaning. Just pay attention to the signs and plan accordingly, and it won't be a problem.
Overall, this is a solid place to stay in LA! Thanks for a nice trip!
This place was great! First let me say how nice and clean the place was. A large bed, kitchen (with utensil snd cooking wear) a large closet, with a quant bathroom. My first night I walked to the grocery store and purchsded everything needed for my trip. The window looking out to the neighborhood was nice too. The location is awesome, 2 block to the left, Melrose. Two blocks to the right, Santa Monica Blvd. There is also a facility to wash clothes, big plus! Oh, the gate entrance gave me the security to relax in the evening. Mathew was very polite and did not hesitate to answer any questions I had. Just a heads up, the other people I was working with that week stayed at other rooms rented to them and were totally jealous of me.
I love Matthew's taste for design, the special little touches he adds to each apartment. This is also the most amazing location, I will definitely be back again!
Staying at Matthew's place was very enjoyable. The home is super central in West Hollywood and it made getting around a breeze. As for the home itself, it is clean with a very comfortable bed. The kitchen is stocked with appliances and cookware in case you want to eat in. The neighbourhood is also very beautiful. We had a few questions and Matthew picked up the phone immediately with the answers. My boyfriend and I have discussed coming back to stay at Matthew's home again. Definitely recommend!
This is a great place to stay. A good use of space. A quiet patio in the back too.
The room was exactly as described. Great location, walking distance to buses and little bit longer to the TCL Chinese Theatre. Really felt safe walking around at night in this area. The accommodation has everything you need, though no kettle which was fine as we just used the microwave for cups of tea. There was a slight mix up with the lock box code, but called Matthew and it was fixed straight away. Would happily recommend and stay again.
