Phil was very prompt in responding to any questions/ concerns and his instructions for getting in and checking-out were quick and easy. While the building itself is a little dated, Phil's place has been modernly decorated as depicted in the photos. The neighborhood was safe and we found it very convenient that there was a grocery store less than a block away. A restaurant to keep in mind is Yuko's kitchen which is within walking distance of Phil's place.
While the parking in front of the building is strictly permit only between 6 pm and 8 am, there is free street parking available in the vicinity. Just be mindful of the parking restrictions (e.g. 2-hr, 4-hr time limits). We managed to find parking a few blocks away in a residential area where we could park all day for free so we could sleep in, etc. It's just a matter of whether you're willing to walk and being lucky to get a spot.
Staying here was great ! When we arrived, the place was neat and had all the essentials (goes to show that the host takes time to prepare for incoming guest). Theophillus was flexible and a great host, he answered all inquiries promptly. The place itself was accessible to most hotspots . Overall, pleasant experience here !
My boyfriend and I had a great stay at Theophilus's apartment. He was good when it came to giving me all the info I needed for check in and easy to get in touch with. Location was great and felt very safe! Everything was clean, Apple TV was great, quiet at night, all good things! Would definitely love to stay again!!
Nice area, nice flat, nice guy. I sure recommend this place. Thank you Theo :)
Totally great place, very convenient and Theophilus was super easy and helpful. Worth mentioning that most all of the parking in area was resident-permit or parking meters; that said, I was always able to find something out pretty quickly.
Theophilus was a great host.
The apartment is exactly as pictured and described. What you see is what you will get! The place is nicely furnished and decorated as you can see in the pictures.
It is a prime location by Miracle Mile including attractions like the LA County Museum of Art (LACMA), Page Museum (La Brea Tar Pits), Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM), Petersen Automotive Museum, and A+D Museum.
Transportation-wise, it is close to the 20 and 720 bus stops and relatively close to the Metro red and purple lines.
I would definitely recommend Theophilus as a host and would be willing to come and stay there again the next time I am in LA.
Thanks again Theophilus!
Lovely room, lovely host!
We chose this apartment based on its close location to our friend's place, who we were visiting. The location was great, as was the neighborhood. Lots of amenities around, including a Whole Foods and coffee shops.
The apartment came as listed, except for there was no Wi-Fi in the apartment. This was a big deal for us, as we were traveling and needed the internet to look things up to plan our days. There were no notes about the apartment, so I inquired about the Wi-Fi to both Theo and the girl who is helping him care for the apartment. It took three attempts between the two of them to get any response about the Wifi, in which case I was told there was free Wifi by the pool, not in the apartment. My husband wound up having to purchase a data plan to cover the cost of our internet use while staying there.
Overall, the apartment suited our needs while we were there. There were very few lights, and the light was out in the kitchen, making the apartment dark and the kitchen almost impossible to use. There was also food containers and recycling from previous vacationers around the apartment. We had no problems with the parking, and it was convenient to have a safe place to park our rental car.
Prior to coming to the apartment, I got an email from a lady that said she was gonna be their to help me since T is out of town. She provided me with instructions and the parking spot #. When arriving to the apartment me and my girlfriend were disappointed we came to a dirty apartment the floor was filthy very unpleasant to arrive to the (we were staying for 14days) besides the apartment being dirty it wasn't as described the room didn't have the tv or the dresser that's in the pictures,I contacted the host rep and all I got back is an apology that the apartment wasn't up to my standards. That was so rude to hear.. Floors being dirty is not up to my standards ? Me and my girlfriend had a lot of plans for our trip and we knew we wouldn't be at the apartment all the time so we didn't want to cause a chaos in our vacation so we decided to go buy things to clean the apartment ourselves. The neighbors un top of the unit would bang on the floor if we would even speak after midnight I understand when it is to be respectful and keep it down but not to be able to speak at night was something else . My car got towed after parking at the spot given to me and when I contacted the host rep about the issue she was very rude and made it seem like it wasn't her fault that it got towed and not helping . So I contacted T with the receipt of the tow invoice and he refunded me my money spent for the tow it was just very Inconvenient to spent a day on vacation to go to a tow pound and deal with this . I wouldn't stay at this apartment again.
I highly recommend the place. The location is excellent. It is walking distance to restaurants. The building has a very nice pool and gym.
Very respectful guest!
Theophilus is nice and everything gets fine! Good communication
