I originally decided to be a Host on Airbnb with the ideal of renting my entire apartment during the times I was away ( I travel abroad 2 to 4 times a year for Business). But I realized after making the accommodations for Guests, that this could work even during the times I was home only because my Apartment is completely sectioned off from the Bedrooms that I utilize on the East Wing to the Living Space and the Guest Bedroom on the west wing of the apartment. It is like having two Apartments sharing the entrance. Privacy is very important to me so I do my best to respect the Privacy of my Guests as well!...With that being said...Here is what I offer!...
I provide a very Safe, Clean, Comfortable and Artistic environment with a beautiful 180 degree Penthouse view of the City with some of the most beautiful sunsets you can see in the City! Also, I offer most of the perks and amenities you're used to at home. During your stay, I will not be utilizing the living area so YOU really do have the entire Apartment including...
1) Cozy Private Bedroom (with a 32" LG LED TV with DVD player,) and most importantly...a really comfortable Queen size Foam Mattress Bed. (The room is originally converted from the Den to a private bedroom. There are multi-layers of stylish heavy drapes nailed to both sides of the wall to ensure privacy with a lock on the door to the bedroom...)
2) Private Bathroom including...
a. Clean Bath Towels
b. Hair Dryer
d. Soap/Body Rinse
3) Main Living Room and Entertainment Center

Location wise.. Wills place is right in the heart of Ktown.. walking distance to all the entertainment night spots and all the authentic korean restaurants. The place is also right off of Wilshire which is where bus transportation comes and goes.
Wills place itself is really nice
Pics are legit. Very clean.. cozy. The balcony you get a amazing view of the city.. seeing the downtown skyline at night or in the morning sunrise is worth every penny. Wills also very generous with having refreshment in his fridge.. just don't touch his Starbucks Fraps. Haha.
Will as a person and host.. Couldn't found a better host. Will took me out 2 of the 3 nights I was there.. took me out to the korean bbq houses as well as took me around k town and showed me the night life in k town. Wills born and bred in LA so he knows everything about the city... so future guest hit this place up.
Ya won't regret it.
Will hyung .. go mah woah.. jal jeen eh yo.. fighting!
Super easy, super accommodating and great communication. No problems what so ever! highly recommended.
Great location, view, and facilities. Exactly as described, you will not be disappointed. Having stayed in hotels around the same area, would recommend Williams place hands down. No regrets!
I arrived in Los Angeles at around 12:40pm and arrived at his apartment at around 1:40pm. The whole check in process is smooth. He showed me the entire apartment with detail. We had a good conversation about the neighborhood. William is pretty chill and cool. His apartment is very neat. I would return to his apartment again.
I'm seriously pretty happy with my first airbnb experience and glad it was with William! The apartment was super clean (and tastefully decorated), and his fridge is stocked with plenty of water, soda, you name it.
As other reviewers have mentioned, William's a fairly quiet guy, so it did feel like I was living at my own place downtown. Checking in and out was really easy and flexible, William was just that type of chill and flexible airbnb host who could accomodate your schedule.
The best part that I was really thankful for was that when I told him I would be coming in later than the anticipated check in time I gave him because I got lost (and freaked out) while taking the subway to his place, he offered to pick me up from wherever I was. Honestly, I'm super touched! William was super chill and fun to hang out with whenever we did get to see each other-- even upon arriving, he was extremely hospitable and we got to talk for quite a bit and get to know each other like friends. Never thought an airbnb host would be so accomodating and caring, it almost felt like I had an old friend or family during my stay here!
Definitely highly recommend William's place for anyone visiting the LA area because the area is super convenient, being in the heart of the city (and ktown) and definitely one of the safer strips here. :)

About the Host, William
I'm a very easy going type of Personality and I guess that comes from a lot of different experiences I've had in my life...A lot of Highs and some Lows and realizing sometimes just to go with the flow...LOL! I've traveled to a lot of different Countries all over the World myself so I'm pretty experienced in living out of my Suitcase for lengthy durations and my philosophy towards Hosting is pretty simple... "Do onto others as I would like them to do to me" if the situation were reversed. I've lived in Los Angeles most of my life, so I feel as I know the ins and outs of this town.
I provide the three C's (clean, cool and comfortable) environment and much more!...I'm very much into the Arts! I love Music, Film, and Artwork. I've been involved one way or another in Music and Film since I was in High School. I currently run a Music Publishing/Production/Management Company based in Los Angeles CA, Seoul Korea, and Tokyo Japan, so I do travel abroad every year. As your Host, I can Provide you with some cool tips of where to go depending on what you want to experience and give you a very comfortable place to stay during your trip to the City of Angels!
