How do I begin to describe the many ways in which this property differs from the description posted here on airbnb? Before I attempt this, I must disclose that we checked-in before the owner, Buz, suggested we do so. The disgusting state of this suite was moderately improved after the cleaner arrived at 1pm, but the level of cleanliness was still so poor that our party seriously considered relocating to a hotel. To make our experience even worse, Buz was defensive when we contacted him to complain and offered zero compensation. To quote Buz: “I did you a big favor by allowing you to check in early. I said at 1pm, not before. You decide arbitrarily to come in at noon.” We have reported this listing to airbnb.
First, the images used for this listing are significantly dated, and must have been taken immediately after a renovation. The blinds are all damaged, all of the upholstery is stained and dirty, and heaters are rusty and falling off the walls. Second, much of the cutlery and dishware was filthy, and we had to rewash most of it in order to use it. The cleaner didn’t touch any utensils or tableware. Third, many of the “amenities” don’t work: the elements on the stove work but the oven is broken, the laundry machine is at least 20 years old and stops mid-cycle every time, and the wifi only works near the front of the suite. Lastly, this is an unsanitary space in general. The bath was full of hair, the insides of the kitchen cupboards were covered with food, and the futon cover was unacceptably dirty, considering this is a sleeping space. Two of the beds, including the pullout, were stained with bodily fluids. Fortunately, our group brought extra bedding.
We have taken photos of everything if you'd like to see examples. I strongly encourage you to email us for images of how deceitful the airbnb listing is for this suite: (email hidden)
Sorry Buz, this property is absolutely light years away from how it is described. This stay was booked to celebrate my dad’s 70th birthday and your property really put a damper on our trip to LA.
Nice place perfectly located a little worn but clean and nice.
We loved how close it was to the beach! There were a number of cruisers and other single bikes, in addition to the tandems (which we didn't try). It only takes about 10-15 minutes to bike to the Santa Monica Pier. We would stay again!
Great place. Great location.
Welcome back anytime!
Buz was amazingly quick at responding, and the apartment was lovely. Could not have asked for a better location in Venice. It was great to be so close to the beach, but still in a quiet apartment. The parking spot was also great for our rental car. We had a great time.
Thanks for your kindness, Melissa! We do our best to please.
Good location near the beach. The included parking space was a bonus, especially for the Venice area. The apartment was clean and comfortable. Buz is a good host. Definitely recommended.
A pleasure to have you visit!
Great spot. Central location.
We pride ourselves on being in the middle of Venice Beach!
Location is great and house is spacious. It is older and not as clean as I might prefer but all in all, very comfortable and a good experience. While we were there, his responses to two different issues that we had were not very timely. All in all- I would recommend the place to certain friends.
Left messages on your email, perhaps you couldn't pick up quickly.
