As a first-time participant in airbnb, I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived at Olivia and Alexey's house. I was very relieved to find my room was exactly as the pictures and the description had shown it to be. Olivia was very kind and had everything all ready, and even though I saw little of her during my stay because of my schedule, we kept in touch through texting. I liked having the private entrance and the separate bathroom. The extra loft bed in the bedroom came in handy so that my son whom I was in LA to visit could spend a few nights there with me for a few dollars more. This house is probably not convenient if you don't have your own transportation, but I would gladly stay with the Minkins again. It was a wonderful first experience with airbnb!
It was our first visit to the United States. The happiness that we stayed for a week at Olivia and Alexey! This is a great people! They are very friendly, funny and caring! And they have a great dog Dinoshka hilarious! Woof! :) Where is the ball? Apartments and bathroom have a separate entrance. You can always come and go without disturbing the owners. Everything is clean and well maintained. Patio with relaxing swing, and lemon trees. California Dreamin! On the street there is always where to park the car. The house is in a great location in Los Angeles, you feel alone and relaxed at the same time, all you need is not far away. Generally a great place! Recommended to all!
Olivia and Alexey, thank you very much! Be sure to see you again! Cool!!! :)
I stayed for 5 nights at Olivia's house. The room is lovely, just like in the picture. As a visitor, it was great to have a bathroom en suite and separate entrance to come and go. The bed is very comfortable. There is a gentle dog who liked to quietly check in with me each time I went in or out. Olivia is very friendly. She and I were both busy so did not see each other much. For someone who does not know LA, it was fairly easy to drive around in that section of the city with a variety of businesses available close by, by car.
Olivia and Alexey are super nice people. They made me feel incredibly welcome and were very generous in sharing their home with me. The room is great and, frankly, a steal at the price they are charging.
Our stay at Olivia and Alexexs Home was really great. The room is very spacious and we had our own entrance and bathroom. Both are very nice and we really enjoyed our time in L.A.. We would definetly come back again!
fantastic experience, great room, private and secure.
friendly and professional (but still laid-back) hosts.
highly recommended, would definitely stay again.
Olivia and Alexey are kind people and your dog Din a sweet friend!
I was just 8 days in LA, in a business trip, but I felt like my home.
I have to say Metro line buses are reliable and useful way to discover LA. I have been no more than 10 minutes at bus stop.
Finally a useful tip, If you are planning to rent a van service from or to airport home trip, please, absolut avoid SuperShuttle (blue vans)...they gave me an awful service, on the contrary, PrimeTime Shuttle (reds vans) was perfect, on time, kind manners, speed, clean and modern vans.
Loved my stay at Oliva's home. This is a really awesome room with everything you need for a good time in Los Angeles. The elevated bed is an awesome concept for a second sleeping arrangement and hanging out with the friendliest dog in the world was a good start to every morning. Thanks for showing us around and being a big help in making the most out of our experience.
Olivia was incredibly helpful and knowledgable about the area with some good suggestions as to where we should go for breakfast/general sightseeing/how to get around etc.
The room was big, clean and totally private with ensuite bathroom and comfortable bed.
Olivia did lots of little things that really made our stay so much nicer and is a fantastic and friendly host who helped us within the hour for a last minute booking.
The one thing to note is that even though her place is close to a station and bus stop, they are not that easily accessible withought taking a cab (which is not unusual for LA) so ideally stay here if you have hired a car.
Travelers tip...if going to LA you really should hire a car, the public transport does not go everywhere and it will take you much longer to get anywhere if you rely on public transport.
Olivia helped me with directions to arrive & leave, since i failed to get her address. she is very welcoming & friendly, as are her nice dogs. the room is very private with it's own bathroom & entrance. she also accommodated me with a reading light by the bed & tea in the morning. very comfortable bed too!
Olivia and Alexey were polite, clean and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend them!
