Overall the place was clean. The bathtub has a drainage problem so water accumulates while you're showering. This causes a little residue to build up in the tub.
James was easy to communicate with and even though we had a last minute booking he was able to accommodate us. His instructions were clear on how to get into the apartment.
When we booked the parking garage was not available so we had to resort to street parking. I've never been to LA and I didn't realize how much of a pain street parking is. If you are planning on getting a car I would make sure the parking spot is available before booking. The last thing you'll want to deal with after a long day of driving around LA is trying to find a parking spot. Fortunately we were lucky and found parking spots somewhat close to the apartment. Even during the middle of the day parking spots are hard to come by. Public transit is within walking distance and you can take "uber" or a taxi around to avoid driving, so that might be a plus.
For the price I can't complain too much. I think next time I'd be willing to fork over a bit more for a place with parking available.
The street we were on felt pretty safe. When it got dark you might still see some couples still walking around although not too many. This apartment is right on the edge of Koreatown/Highland park (Highland park to the west is a nicer neighborhood). There are signs posted not to leave anything visible in your car because I think vehicle related crime is a big problem around this area. We made sure to keep everything hidden in the car overnight and didn't have any problems.
Depending on your itinerary I would try to be as carless as possible while staying here. Luckily a lot of popular destinations aren't more than 30 minutes away by public transportation.
We had a nice stay at James place. The place was clean and provided everything we needed. We booked last minute and were very happy about the key lock to check in late at night. Communication with James was very easy. Can't really say much about the neighbourhood as we were gone all day anyways and arrived late. Finding a parking spot was quiet hard, so I think this is worth mentioning if you can't use the garage parking. But other than that we don't have anything to complain about. We really liked the kitchen and enjoyed a coffee iin the morning sun on the balkony.
We spend a great time in the James' unit. James was very reactive to answer because we ask for a reservation just the day we arrived. The flat is nice and great located. Thank you James.

This apartment is huge, and very nicely decorated. You could easily fit 2 people in each of the 3 bedrooms without feeling cramped, although when we where there only one of the bedrooms had a bed.
The location is great on a nice block with walking distance to quite a few good restaurants. We made Letizias Bakery next door our go to spot for morning coffee. It was easy to find parking around the corner.
The check in procedure was easy and James had arranged it for us so we could get the key when we arrived late at night. And even tho we never met him, he was very detailed in his emails so we got all the info we needed.
Highspeed internet was very fast.
All in all a great stay and would definitely recommend this place to other guests.
nice guy, quiet and clean.
James was a great guest, left my apt clean and tidy. Would have him back anytime.
