I am a writer, filmmaker and anthropologist living in Ventura, CA.
We loved our stay at Russell's Mountain Retreat. The house had the most incredible views and you could watch this beautiful waterfall while doing dishes. It is a little remote, but that only adds to the beauty. It's a short drive to volcano Irazu(which you must see), Cartago and many other beautiful and peaceful towns. I would highly recommend a stay here if you are interested in more than just the beaches in Costa Rica.
"Huge Brooklyn Studio" is not a lie. Russell's place is truly one of the nicest where I've ever stayed.
It's very warm and tastefully furnished while offering all the modern comfort one could wish for (the kitchen is really amazing) and it is indeed very spacious.
The apartment gets a lot of light during the day and is conveniently located.
Russell was very nice and efficient in providing information and support throughout our entire stay.
A great experience all around, I definitely recommend it.
We had a fantastic stay in Russell's apartment. We were so impressed with how spacious it was and we felt so welcomed by its clean and homey appearance. We could not have been happier to have such a comfortable space to call home during our Brooklyn stay. Russell had prepared the apartment wonderfully and was so accommodating.
Russell's house was absolutely wonderful, easy to get to from outside the city, close to the train to get downtown. It is probably the most well decorated, comfortable place I have ever stayed. Russell was also very accommodating and very good about making sure we had everything we needed. I cannot recommend this location enough.
Russell's apartment is beautiful and very tastefully decorated with books, pictures and antiques. It is in a great location in Brooklyn, on a residential street yet very close to subway and also close to Cortelyou Road with great restaurants, cafes and markets. Russell was responsive to all our needs, starting from late check in to all the details to make our stay most comfortable. Highly recommended!
Russell was a great guest, easy to host and super clean and tidy!
Glad to help him with a comfortable layover near LAX, happy to recomend to any Airbnb host!
Wonderful ,easy to communicate with and left things in great shape
Russell and his wife were PERFECT guests: friendly, respectful, and tidy! They are always welcome back in LA to my delightful studio in Sunset Junction, Silverlake.
Great folks,Ii'd have them back anytime!
