The house is nice. The location is pretty central, at about 30-45 min range from all the sites we wanted to visit. Immediate neighborhood may look a little bit lost, but is safe and secure. We encountered no problem at all.
Shawn is a nice host, he took care of our demands.
Definitely to be recommended.
Stay in the Silverlake area if you don't mind driving around for fun!
Good host! We had a great time!
Great first time Air BNB experience, place was easy to find and Shawn was very easy to get a hold of. Place was very comfortable and clean. I am working on a new project in LA so just learning the area as I commute east to west coast some weeks. It was very easy to get to where I am working and easy to drive to places (just not walk sadly which I am used to in DC).
Only quick notes for future guests, the automatic instructions I got when I booked seemed to be a bit out of date (wifi password, lock situation, etc) but Shawn was very responsive in getting those to me, including getting me a hair dryer and iron when I realized they weren't there the first night. So just double check those things when you first arrive, as you would any place. Thanks for a great stay!
I stood for three nights and it was an okay stood. The house is very nice. My friend and I got lost walking by foot from the red line metro but that was our fault. Once we found the place we didn't have trouble walking around the neighborhood. There is an intersection we had trouble crossing, and a lot of homeless people nearby but they didn't bother us. There were ants in the bedroom during our duration, we spoke to Shawn about it and he said he will fix that problem by speaking with landlord. Overall we enjoyed our stay thanks Shawn!
Response from Shawn:
Thanks Emily. Landlord fumigated after your checkout.
No more ants! Thank you fur your grace and tolerance. Refund sent today.:-)
Thank you Shawn for being so accommodating last minute! The Miles Davis Bunglalow was comfortable & spacious for two people. Loved the little kitchen area. Such a great neighborhood!
Shawn's place is in a quite neighborhood with it's private parking at the back - which is a plus for LA - and all the necessary equipment inside that you may need during your stay (kitchenware, wi-fi, AC, etc.).
Place was very neat and clean when we arrived and was exactly as photographed inside the listing.
Shawn was very responsive during our stay and was also pro-active for our possible needs like laundry..
Response from Shawn:
You were great!
The Audrey Hepburn is an amazing and spacious bungalow. Great for two people! Lots of windows that let in a cool breeze and an amazing bathtub! :) Shawn was very helpful and accommodating to us last minute and communicated with us throughout out stay! Wonderful Host!
Shawn was great and so was his cute space! Stayed 3 nights and was very happy - perfect for 2 people!
The Miles Davis Bungalow is a cute, quaint apartment settled in gorgeous, awesome Silver Lake. Shawn was an incredible host and took care of everything we needed. I would absolutely recommend staying in the bungalow!
Response from Shawn:

Sean was a super guest. We hope he will come back again! Very nice guy, very easy to communicate with.
Shawn was a wonderful guest. Clean, polite, easy to communicate with and we shared some hilarious stories…charming and witty... I'd definitely recommend this guest.
Shawn was easy to communicate with, incredibly respectful, and an absolute joy as a guest. I would recommend him highly to stay anywhere!
Easy, flexible, sweet guest. Quick and quiet trip, but positive experience!
Shawn was a perfect guest; my only regret is that we didn't have a chance to chat more.
Shawn is gracious, ever-interested, and interesting(!) with fantastic taste -- a mensch who truly goes out of his way for you. You will always be looked after!
Shawn is charming, gracious, and a person of superb taste. Who wouldn't want to hang at Shawn's place—or, for that matter, with Shawn?
We have known Shawn for a long time and he has always been a kind, considerate person. He will do everything he can to make your stay pleasant.
