Fantastic space and Dan was so helpful. Highly recommended! Thanks Dan!
Great Location! Wonderful cottage, very quiet and peaceful in a neighborhood close to LACMA and the Grove, and a short drive to everything else. Dan is a great host. I came for a weekend back in December, and I liked it so much I came back for a week.
Great place to stay, perfectly located for the west side, in an area where there are not so many hotels etc. The unit is large and the bed is very comfy. In addition, Dan offers a lot of extra touches, like some snacks and fruit in a bowl plus butter and cream in the fridge. The large outdoor yard is sunny, the entire place is very quiet. The parking is also a bonus.
The cottage was comfortable and a nice escape within the city. It was really easy to get around, but still quiet and cozy at night. Communication was fast and clear. I would recommend the cottage to a friend!
The beautiful garden at Dan's cottage is a wonderful space in the summer time or when you have lovely summer like weather in LA. As other's mentioned, there's a lot of natural light in the cottage, so it feels airy. It's a perfect little place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. I would definitely recommend Dan's place to someone coming to LA by themselves or a couple. If you're just two people, it can be a little awkward, trying not to get in each other's way as it's cozy, sort of studio space, although the high ceiling makes it feel not claustrophobic. I'd also mention if you're not not alone and not a couple, the rippled glass on the bathroom door can be an issue as the couch is also in front of the bathroom door. No one wants to feel like they're putting on a burlesque show unless that was their intent! :) The parking also made it less of a hassle, as you did not have to search for a spot when you came home. We did have a bit of an issue with the Wi-Fi, where we could only get signal in the garden, but we didn't mention that to Dan as we were running around and then found different directions on the fridge, which worked great. Too bad we didn't look sooner or actually mention it to Dan, so he could have told us. ;) Overall, it's a great place to say and one I'd recommend to a single friend or a couple.
We loved our stay at Dan's. The beautiful private garden was wonderful for lounging, dining and watching the stars at night around the fire pit. It was so great to have breakfast food! Muffins, fruit, butter and jam and oatmeal, half and half for the coffee! We found the downstairs fold out futon more comfortable than the loft futon on the floor. We would definitely stay again! Thanks, Dan.
Great location and perfect place to stay! Parking spot makes life easier. Cannot think of anything that was needed. Awesome stay! Easy and convenient!
My first Airbnb experience was fantastic. The place was all that was described & more. Dan was a great host & very pleasant to deal with. When preparing meals, as soon as the thought: 'I wonder if they have a...' about a particular utensil, drawer opened & there it was. The loft bed was very cozy & there was lots of natural light.
As it was raining during my entire stay (which California really needed but which came down with a fury) I wasn't able to utilize the charming back yard with it's lovely fire pit, which I was sadly looking to.
Fabulous place & close to restaurants & groceries on Wilshire.
Would love to stay there again.
Thanks Dan & Karen,
Having stayed at Dan's cottage before, I knew what to expect, and I wasn't disappointed. For me, this is the perfect place to stay in LA: It's quiet, charming and comfortable. Dan is a wonderful host, friendly and helpful. He left an assortment of goodies for me--fruit, chips, health bars, coffee, etc.--that made my stay even better. At the risk of not being able to stay there the next time I'm in LA, I highly recommend the cottage.
A great place to stay! Dan was a great host and provided some great suggestions on where to go while in LA. The cottage was clean and neat. Location was central. It was easy to get around with my rental car. I would definitely consider staying there again!
