I'm a 28 year old designer.
We had a great stay at Ryan's place. Central location and great communication from Ryan. We really loved the treats he left for us upon arrival...so sweet! The apartment was clean and easy to find. We loved having a washer and dryer, as we had just returned from a trip to Europe and needed to wash some things. Just down the road from the apartment is Rutt's Hawaiian Cafe...you must go there! It was so good we ate twice for breakfast! Hawaiian French toast...bomb diggity!
The only complaint we could have was that it was right on a busy street so could be a tad noisy if the windows are open, and since the apartment didn't have AC, this could be a concern for some people. We were fine, as the nights were cool when we visited.
Ryan's place is exactly as pictured, he was also quite responsive as a host. The welcome basket he left was very much appreciated.
The apartment is on a fairly busy street, so traffic noise is notable in the living area, but I didn't seem to notice it so much in the bedroom. During my trip it was unseasonably hot. I had hoped his apartment was still within the marine morning clouds but it was not, and therefore quite warm without any air conditioning.
For a short trip however i would return, as his apartment is priced right, very convenient to Venice, Marina Del Rey and Santa Monica and is also quick and easy to get to LAX
Thanks Ryan for letting us stay in your apartment. The location was wonderful, close drive to Venice beach which was perfect for sunset. The bed and couch were comfortable, the kitchen was very clean and the fan was on when we entered which was great because it was quite humid. Ryan left lots of treats for us which was wonderful and helpful. I couldn't get connected to the wi fi from across the street so that was a drag but there was a ethernet cable for laptops (only had my phone).
Nice Location, Ryan was great and helpful during our stay and very easy to deal with.
For the wifi, you need to actually go across the street, connect to the alibi room and then you should be able to get it in the living room. (for those, like me, who did not bring their laptops but only ipad, the rest will find an ethernet plug in the bedroom)
Nicely located, near Venice and Santa monica. I recommend it !
Very neat, clean and comfy place to stay! Ryan is very considerate person and help me a lot on my vacation. He provides very detailed amenities that is over my expectation! I would def recommend to my friends on future LA visit
Ryan's place is as described, and ryan ensured the checkin process was very smooth. The location requires a car, but is just a short drive from Venice Beach and also pretty near to Santa Monica.
Ryan also laid on chocolates and wine which was greatly appreciated. I'd certainly stay there again.
Ryan's place was very clean and comfortable, and we appreciated the travel-size bath amenities (body wash, shampoo, lotion, etc) that he left for us. He was responsive and communicative about arrangements. The apartment is also conveniently located close to the beach. :)
Wired internet only means you can only hook up one device at a time, unfortunately, and no wifi for your smartphone if you have one.
Great location. Close to beach. Easy highway access and surface streets were ideal for our destinations.
Apartment was very comfortable.
Street noise was a little loud.
Lovely apartment. Clean tidy and comfy. Ryan was very helpful. The arrival gifts were fantastic and the place was clean and tidy when I arrived.
Very near Venice beach and LAX but a really nice chilled area of Culver.
Had a great stay and would definitely use it again.
I booked this place for my mom who was visiting. The large kitchen and the uncluttered feel is what made us choose the place. The apartment is comfortable, well located, and feels safe. From check-in to check-out, communication with Ryan was easy, prompt and he was very helpful. Great experience all around. Highly recommended!
Ryan is great! He's a super thoughtful guy with a great, very stylish place. He'd be a considerate guest or a fantastic host for anyone!
Ryan is an extremely trustworthy and friendly guy. He is great to talk to and easy to get along with. He has been one of my best friends for many years.
