I live in downtown Los Angeles and teach English at a number of locations. I have lived here for 11 years.

As it says in the description LA is super spaces out, so although it may not seem like it the accommodation is quite central. Rooms are not anything amazing, just comfortable.
Other people staying in house were lovely and everyone seemed to clean up after themselves. Kelly, the onsite manager, was great!
Thanks for our stay!
I requested downstairs just hrs b4 I got there cuz my legs problem and they changed it 4 me right away. Neighborhood is alright but price is great and it's gated pretty well include the parking spot so I'll definitely will stay again.
Functional and barely adequate. Ryan was very responsive and easy to work with. Location is super close to subway station. Lots of shops, restaurants and markets nearby. House conditions leave something to be desired. Kinda grimy, mattresses on the floor, no hand soap in one of the bathrooms, roach spotted in the kitchen. Set up similar to a hostel w/ shared kitchen though no other common areas, like a living room, to encourage interaction with others in the house.
Nice, clean and quiet place. Friendly atmosphere. It's basic but really a good deal for it's price.
Comfortable&clean tiny room. Kitchen is just perfect. The location also very convenient, close to the Red Line.
Everything as described! Perfect little oasis in downtown los angeles. Wifi worked awesome.
SUPER convenient to the Disney Resort
Multiple rooms means two couples or a bunch of friends can save a bundle on lodging while at Disney
*Really* Squeaky beds
Lack of TV
Lack of comfortable seating in the front room (I sat on the floor to eat dinner every night)
Lack of on-site laundry facilities, when promised
This property completely serves it's purpose: a two-bedroom place to stay while visiting Disneyland for a couple of days. Two couples and a preschooler fit just great in here, no worries. One of the bedrooms easily fit a child's air mattress plus all our bags, with plenty of room to spare. The cottage is roomy if nothing else.
However, don't be expecting this to compare to a nice hotel. The furnishings are new, but very basic. Squeaky, hard beds are found in both rooms. The futon in the front room is nice, but aside from two other plastic chairs from the table in the kitchen, there's nowhere to sit. Additional comfortable seating would be a huge benefit - there's plenty of room.
Also, there's no TV. Not a major big deal if you're there just to sleep, but it's worth noting. The wireless internet is GREAT. I wish I could get such great speeds and connectivity at home! But four adults trying to watch one laptop from a 2-seater futon doesn't make for a relaxing evening.
The kitchen is fine. Fridge, table and stove. Counter space is a little limited with the dish rack and all, but its was completely serviceable. A real coffee maker would have been greatly appreciated - most folks aren't familiar with a french press.
A major issue for us was the lack of laundry facilities. The info on the room at the time of my stay highlighted the on-site laundry facilities (and the pictures still show the machines.) We packed with the intention of doing laundry, only to find out that wasn't possible (and honestly, we didn't have a couple hours to spend at a laundromat during our Disney vacation. Ryan compensated us, but the downer that wearing dirty clothes on your last day at the parks really can't be overstated.)
I probably would stay here again for a Disney trip. The neighborhood is super cute, and it's hella convenient. Just would pack differently, and make sure I knew what to expect.
The apartment had everything i needed; good location, lots of space, and friendly service.
Clean and affordable - perfect for those traveling on a limited budget.
Clean, simple and great location!
It was really great hosting Ryan and his family a fellow host. Ryan and his family are great guests to have. They followed all the house rules and left the house very clean and tidy. We are looking forward to having Ryan and his family stay with us again in the future. We can highly recommend him to any host.
