We had two wonderful nights at Matthew's place. The room was very cosy, clean and cool, incl. music and books. conversation went easily and we felt welcomed all the time. Could definately recommend this place!
Mathew's highland park room is perfectly comfortable for us to stay, so clean and so lovely, just like home. It is a very economic place to stay if you wanna save money during the trip. The location is very easy to find and convenient for LA traveling. My favorite is the backyard with tables and seats, we can enjoy some relax moments. I love it.
The host canceled this reservation 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Unfortunately, I had to cancel due to an onsite maintenance issue.
What a great place- lovely room with an incredible porch area, it was hard not to feel at home here. Comfy bed and great touches like the sound system and the porch lights meant that this really was a special place, and we wish we'd been able to hang out longer! Matthew is a great host- welcoming, friendly, and great at reassuring us when we had issues at the airport and we're going to be delayed. Next time we're in LA, we'll definitely be hoping this place is free!
We enjoyed our stay there. Matt is a really warm hearted and helpful owner. He offered metro cards to us since we don't have car. We bothered him a lot because we are not familiar with the area and did not plan our trip well. But he helped us solve these problems, making our trip there enjoyable. And I love the amplifier!
It was our first Airbnb experience (I stayed with my boyfriend).
We were really surprised and really glad that we got to stay at matts !
He is such a lovely guy and even invited us to have a barbecue with him and some friends of his from New York. Oh and not to forget his cute dog who loves to be pet and feel the love of everyone ;)
The accommodation was also really nice. You have your own entrance to the house and a really lovely room with a little extra room where you can put your luggage. The entrance is around the house right on the where the terrace is. It is just lovely. All set up with little lights and really nice places to sit - oh and even a fireplace.
It is also good to know that you can get to LA by public transportation, which is only a few blocks away.
So if you want to stay somewhere close to LA we can just recommend to stay at matts ! Thanks Matt for making us a such an amazing first Airbnb experience and having us stay with you.
Matt est une personne vraiment adorable. Nous ne l'avons pas vu car il était en week end. Néanmoins il nous a laisse toutes les instructions pour venir chez lui. Elles étaient très claires. L'endroit est très romantique et décoré avec goût. La salle de bains et la chambre étaient propre. Très bel endroit pour loger a LA
Matthew was awesome. Super helpful. The place was amazing. Just as I had expected. Unfortunately I got sick and had to depart early. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again when I'm in town. Also Vinnie is the most adorable little host ever!!!
Simply paradise. Matt was a wonderful host, kind, accommodating and amazing attention to detail. We enjoyed our stay immensely! Jazz music, candles, garden, great bookshelf and morning paper, it was by far our favorite place to relax in city. Thanks so much for sharing your oasis with us!
Matthew is pretty amazing. His presence is constant, in that things just magically seem to appear, and yet he's never intrusive. Newspaper was magically sitting on the back porch waiting for me when I wake up... used the last match in the matchbook to light a candle, next time I look there's a new matchbook... electric cord for cool outdoor lights gets tucked away when I forget to do that... etc. I decided Matthew must be part leprechaun or something.
The description is accurate, but also can't really capture the peace and tranquility of Matthew's space. You're in the back bedroom of a small house, which you enter via a side gate. There's a comfy bed, a small desk, and lots of drawer and closet space - plus a mini-fridge! You have a key to your door, which opens onto a porch (which you see in the pic) that faces Mount Washington across Marmion Way.
The Metro Gold Line runs just on the other side of the fence and the occasional quiet shuck-shuck, shuck-shuck, shuck-shuck of a passing train is actually restful. I loved laying on the porch bed to read or just to stare out at the garden and listen to a jazz station Matthew had playing quietly on the receiver in my room when I arrived. The aforementioned electric lights strung around the backyard are fun at night, too.
Highland Park is not an area of L.A. I was that familiar with, even having lived in the city for a number of years. It's basically between downtown and Pasadena, which means it's convenient to those neighborhoods (Metro Gold Line-adjacent), with Eagle Rock/Silverlake/Los Feliz/Hollywood a short Lyft/Uber ride away. HP itself is a somewhat sleepy neighborhood with mostly fast food joints and mom-and-pop businesses and I was generally spending time in other parts of the city, so I can't offer any specifics there. I'm sure Matthew has more ideas, though!
I can't finish my review without mentioning the house mascot, Vinnie. As Matthew gave me my house tour, a small dog literally crawled out from under my bed to greet me. He's likely to hang out with you during the day while you're at home, but only if you're ok with that, and he really only wants the occasional scratch behind the ears even then. Like his owner, he's very relaxed and friendly - and you'll appreciate your time with him.
Thanks, Matthew! And Vinnie!
Matthew was an awesome guest. As an Airbnb host himself, Matthew did it perfectly. He was quiet, tidy as hell, and was a true pleasure to have around. I am happy I had some time to get to know him. I would love to have him back any time.
Matt's stay was short but sweet. He was more than willing to pay my cleaning fee for short stays and was a great communicator during the entire process. He left the house in tip-top shape, and I was happy to accommodate him. Because of his good correspondence, I felt as though we had met even though our paths never crossed. I would easily host him again.
