This was our 2nd stay at this house! It's perfect for our visits back to LA where we used to live. The space is great for small gatherings. Michael is so easy to work with. No complaints!!
Michael made us feel very welcome. The residence was picture-perfect, clean, and in a great location.
Highly recommended! Thank you!
Michael went out of his way to make us feel welcome! He gave us a tour of the property with attention to detail and made recommendations for many things to do, restaurants and places to go to while we were in LA. His pleasant and professional manner are exemplary! He was available for additional questions and sincerely cared about our experience! The best host we've ever had in Airbnb homes!!
Michael is a really good host. He tought me where to go, what should I do in LA and everything. He Is always just a Phone call distance.
The place is just how it looks in the pictures and Its perfectly locales. WALKING DISTANCE TO EVERYWHERE, and very important in LA: free parking in the street
I really recomend this place
Michael's apt in Santa Monica was my very first Air BnB stay, and I think I'm ruined - I can't imagine having a better experience anywhere else! His place and his hospitality definitely set the bar exceedingly high.
Michael was the most accommodating and gracious host. He dealt with my two cancelled flights on the way to LA, with constant communication and flexibility, even while he was on vacation in Mexico! And he was completely happy to chat with me at 2am when I arrived at the apartment and something was wrong with the gate code - I ended up waiting only about 3 minutes, chatting away with Michael, until Zino showed up to let me in, a big smile on his face and open arms to insist that he carry my heavy suitcase up the stairs all the way to my door. And THEN Michael put my mind at ease with two MORE cancelled flights on the way home. This guy is a dream!
The apartment itself is EXACTLY as pictured. The bed is incredibly comfortable, the TV has plenty of channels, the Wi-Fi is great, the shower has good water pressure and some hotel-like amenities, and he even left bottled water and snacks! Best of all, it's in an extremely safe neighborhood, 3 blocks from the beach and great shopping, super close to the I-10 highway to get into town, and while sometimes street parking was scarce, I always found a spot within 60 seconds of the door.
No matter where I need to be in the LA area, if I ever come back I will stay nowhere else!
We had the PERFECT host and exceptional little oasis for our holiday! Michael was always going beyond to make us feel at home; he was full of fantastic ideas and generous in finding ways to help us navigate all the very best that this home and area can offer!
From the very first inquiry throughout the entire trip, Michael was always available to answer questions, trouble shoot anything or give recommendations.
The house is excellently designed to feel open, spacious and calm. The owners have done an fantastic job with creating a space to relax and enjoy in comfort. We were able to safely store our road bikes in a separate back area . We could create an outdoor workspace (Martin is an artist). We enjoyed cycling on routes that were recommended to us as well.
The best of all worlds, we highly recommend this home to everyone, especially those with a sense of design. Thank you for creating this beautiful home.
The studio apt was exactly as pictured and described. Location was fantastic - walking distance to the beach, 3rd street promenade and other shops and cafes. Michael was great - quick to respond and was very accommodating when our check-in time changed. I would definitely stay here again when I'm back in the area.
We had a wonderful stay in this apartment in West Hollywood. It was spacious, clean, comfortable and very private - exactly as it was described in the listing.
The location was brilliant. We were in walking distance to supermarkets, restaurants and a few attractions too.
Michael and our host Steve made sure we had everything we needed and were always on hand to help when we needed anything at all.
We would definitely stay again of we ever make another trip to downtown LA.
What a wonderful place to stay! It was the perfect home base for our Southern Calif trip. Michael was a great host. Exactly as advertised!
The studio apartment was beautiful and exactly what i needed i will most certainly be back .
Michael was a stellar guest! He was extremely neat and courteous during his stay. He is welcome back any time!
Michael was simply a great guest!!!
He has a very good, simple, friendly and very easy going and enjoyable energy!
I enjoyed sharing with him the fact that we are both full time airbnbrs ;)
I would love to host him again and totally recommend him!!
Michael was a great guest. Though a relative local, I had the chance to show him the best of the East side of LA and he was really psyched to explore the hood. He was clean, respectful and took good care of the back house. Definitely someone I'd love to host again and hopefully stay at his place next time!
Michael booked the unit for is guest Amy. She was a very happy
Michael and I grew up together on the same dead end street in the suburbs of Boston. I've watched him grow up from being an active kid on rollerblades to being a sharp, driven entrepreneur. He's a stand up guy and has been a huge help in getting my airbnb endeavors off the ground. He also loves meeting new people and showing them what LA has to offer.
Mike is awesome, a great friend outside of AirBnb, and does a tremendous job for his guests!
I have worked with Michael and during this time we've became good friends. Michael is a gentleman and a pleasure to be around. From his real estate background he is especially knowledgeable about the Santa Monica and LA area.
I would highly recommend Michael's place to anyone visiting and looking for a great value in a place to stay.
I met Michael in early 2011 while cycling up PCH to Malibu and have been hanging out with him ever since. Michalel is an avid cyclist, and I have gotten much more interested in the sport through this friendship. He is a very social guy, and easy for anyone to get along with. He has a real estate brokerage license and his family invests in several apartment complexes throughout the US, so this should give everyone additional comfort in renting a room from him. I also know that he furnished this room in January, so the room will be essentially brand new. Also, from what I have seen from Michael, he keeps his apartment very clean and has a friendly dog to hang out with.
I can also vouch for the location of his apartment, as my wife and I live less than a block away at 4th and Ocean Park Blvd. You can't find a better location in Santa Monica. You are just a few blocks from the beach. Close enough to enjoy, but not too close so you encounter the riffraf that you might see a little further south close to the beach in Venice. You are also walking distance from tons of local restaurants and shops on main street, yet far enough away from the Santa Monica pier to not feel like a tourist. The main street shops and restaurants basically extend from Urth Cafe at Hollister down to Rose Cafe on Rose st, which is all easily walkable.
Michael is a co-worker of mine who quickly became a friend to not only me, but everyone in the office. He is professional, yet down to earth and outgoing, and has a great sense of humor. He has become a trusted, valuable contact to myself, our peers and even my superiors!
