Todd met us at the apartment and helped us with our bags so he made a good first impression. He was super nice and welcoming. He checked in later that day and the next day by messaging us and even offered us some surfboards to use. There are also a few beach items for use like a boogie board and umbrella as well.
The neighborhood is funky and busy as expected since it's Venice Beach. The apartment is on the first floor at the back of a building that is right on the boardwalk to it couldn't have been much more convenient. That being said, there are windows on only one side of the apartment to it can get stuffy in the warm summer weather even with the windows open (no AC). Two electric fans in each of the sleeping areas helped to cool us off at night, but leaving the windows open for cool air meant that we could still hear some of the noise from the parking lot as well as headlights from the cars passing by or parking.
We had a few glitches during our stay such as spotty wifi, a microwave/fuse blowing out, the futon not folding all the way out, and the cable/tv not working. Todd responded to our texts fairly quickly to try to remedy the problems- he brought over a new microwave and came to check on the tv and couch situation. He also brought us an air mattress so the kids could sleep more comfortably.
The apartment is decorated nicely but could use a couple more small pieces of furniture with drawers for holding clothing and a small nightstand next to the bed for the lamp. Curtains to block out light/ noise in the sleeping areas would be good too. Also more bedding- since the apartment sleeps up to 5, there should be 5 pillows, 2 extra flat sheets and blankets/comforters for the futon and/or air mattress.
I think those additions would have made our stay more comfortable.
Todds unit is rt on the beach with a peek of the ocean from unit windows. Walk out front door and rt on the strand toes in the sand. Todd was a great host who helped us with everything we asked for. Thx Todd.
Todd is a very nice guy and the apartment was awesome.
You can take breathtaking views from the rooftop.
Always a pleasure!
Todd was very responsive and made the check in and out process very simple. His place is in the perfect location! Right in the middle of the action with great views. The apartment is clean and neat. Everything you need for your vacation or getaway. I am looking forward to staying at Todds place again!
Don't even no what to say... you can't beat that location!!! It's just beautiful. Todd is a really nice and friendly guy! The apartment is super nice and clean. We had a AMAZING time, he made us feel really comfortable!
So I just wanna say, Thank you a lot !!!
This was a great stay. The location is right on the boardwalk in the middle of everything. The condo was exactly as described and better. Can't wait to come back.
Le logement était comme stipulé sur l'annonce.Aucune mauvaise surprise.
You can't beat the location! You are literally on the boardwalk and can see the ocean from every window in the apartment. Todd was extremely responsive and the place was very clean. My only suggestion for improvement would be the wifi - we found it to be pretty spotty. Overall great experience and Todd was a great host.
Confortable and minimalist appartment in a terrific location on the walk. Having said this one problem is that the terrace is one flight above the apartment, and is not at all welcoming. It would be more acurate to have a picture of the view from the flat which is lovely. The nights are very quiet- which is great- but things really liven up starting at 7am.
Description accurate. As expected. Great stay. Thanks.
Todd was super awesome, we had a great time together, got to chat, as he is also an air B&B host. Very chill, and laid-back guy… Would love to have him again, or go to his house because it looks amazing.
