I like pelicans, William Shatner and hammocks.
De retour après 1 semaine sur LA : appartement vraiment sympa, pratique, idéalement placé (à 5 mns du centre commercial, métro red line, Chinese Theatre, départ Starline pour se balader dans tout LA et/ou faire les parcours des maisons de stars, ...).
Gene est parfait, présent par mails pour donner toutes les infos nécessaires, aider, arranger, ... un must !!!
Divers : pour ceux qui pensent qu'il faut une voiture sur LA : je dis qu'en logeant ici c'est vraiment très facile de faire sans et d'aller de partout : à 1 arrêt de Universal Studio, 1h de Santa Monica (ben oui c'est LA donc plutôt vaste), 30mns du Downtown, taxi à négocier (au mieux j'ai eu 50/55 dollars de LAS à l'appartement et c'est très pratique après 11h d'avion).
Bref, à refaire, recommander !!!
Encore merci Gene
Genes apartment was exactly as described! The location couldn't have been better-everything was conveniently located and the apartment was perfect for our stay. He was always available to answer questions and offer help. I would highly suggest Genes apartment to anyone who wants to experience being in the heart of Hollywood!
My partner and I had a great time in LA and in Gene's apartment. His communication was fast, his apartment had no faults and the location of his apartment was pretty great! We were central to everything we wanted to do. Great base for exploring LA. The street was quiet, but finding parking during the night was difficult, as expected and told by Gene.
Our experience was great and we recommended this apartment if you want to stay central in LA and not have to worry about driving all over the place
We had a wonderful time at Gene's place. It was exactly as described and the location was perfect for us. Gene was very friendly and easy to communicate with. I would recommend her place to anyone wanting to be close to the action in Hollywood. Thank You again Gene!
We had a great stay at The Hip Homey Retreat in Hollywood. The location is amazing, just a few steps from the highlights in Hollywood. The apartment had everything we needed for a great stay in LA, and I would definitely stay here again if back in town.
Gene's place was exactly as described and could not have been located better. Perfect location for short stays when you want to be in it all!
Place is perfect for two people. Location is great for touristy fun. Gene was very helpful answering questions. I highly recommend this place for a trip to hollywood
Amazing spacious apartment in a prime location!!! Would definitely stay here again :)
This was my first experience with Airbnb and I was very happy with how it turned out. Gene was extremely helpful and always a phone call/text away to answer any questions and provide tips on what to do and where to go. The apartment was exactly as described and extremely close to key attractions. It was clean and tidy and the compound was very quiet. Definitely recommended if you are visiting LA.
I have been traveling to LA quite often from SF... and this was one of the best. Great location, and always had a quick answer for any questions i had. Place was perfect and loved my stay at Gene's place! Would definitely recommend staying here. Place also has a pretty badass little heater, for it's tiny size! Thanks Gene!!
My boyfriend & I recently stayed at Gene's place for 5 nights and to put it simply, it was awesome! I grew up in LA & my boyfriend's from London, so we're both used to the comforts & conveniences that come with big-city living. The apartment is walking distance to top clubs, great shopping at the Hollywood & Highland complex & tons of fun touristy stuff to do (Hollywood Walk of Fame, star tours, etc), as well as a Red Line metro stop (great for getting to downtown and the Amtrak train station). But maybe the nicest part of Gene's place is after a busy day or festive night out are all the little ways the apartment makes you feel right at home. The bed was comfy, shower pressure good with plenty of hot water, everything was clean & we even took advantage of the washer/dryer in the building. If by chance you have a car, there's street parking plus the HH shopping complex at the end of the street allows 24-hour parking for a maximum of $10 (a real find in the heart of Hollywood). All in all we couldn't be happier & will definitely try to book Gene's again when we're back in LA.
Gene and I have worked together for the past 5 years. Although I have lived in Los Angeles for over 20 years, he is the "go to" person for planning activities for all of my visiting friends and relatives! Whether they want to hit all the well-known tourist spots or visit the hip and hidden places know only to the celebrities, he is an amazing resource. If you have the opportunity to stay in his rental, you will not only be staying in the best location, you will also be benefitting from his vast knowledge of L.A. and his ability to direct you to exactly the type of experiences that fit the mood of your trip!
I have known Gene for 12 years now and would highly recommend him as a reference for airbnb! We met during graduates school years and have been great friends ever since. Gene is a professional , laid-back, responsible yet easy-going person and truly knows a great deal about everything! He is well traveled around the world and is welcoming to all types of people who are here to enjoy what Hollywood has to offer ! You can't go wrong !
