I come from a finance background and currently work in academics. I've been a world traveler since my college days and currently travel as much as time allows. I've been an airbnb host for two and a half years now and love doing it.

The location is ideal for public transportation and centrally located in Hollywood. Wifi is very good.
Gene was very welcoming and his detailed check-in instructions were very easy to follow and convenient. He was also very reachable and responsive to any questions that we had during our stay. The place was really great too, very clean, comfortable and in an extremely central location. Stores, restaurants and bars were walking distance away and so was Hollywood Boulevard. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a place in that area!
The location is awesome! We were never more than about 15 miles from where we wanted to go. The area felt pretty safe, so it's not the seedy type of Hollywood that you might expect.
The only downside was that parking can be a little difficult, but hey it's LA. If you can't get parking on the street, you'll have to pay $10 at the Valero around the corner or $15 at the garage at Loew's.
Gene was very accommodating and helpful for a last minute booking that I was arranging for my friend in LA. The location was very ideal and close to shops and taxis. My friend found the place to be exceptionally clean, bright, comfortable, and charming. Thank you.
We had the best time in LA! From before our trip Gene was in constant contact with us, which made finding the place and checking in a breeze. Such a perfect location too for everything and anything you want to do in Los Angeles. We are so happy with our stay and everything Gene along with Airbnb had to offer. I will definitely come back if I'm ever in LA again.
The apartment is nice and VERY well located! Gene has gene very helpful and the he made the communication easy
If you want to stay in the center of Hollywood, look no further. The place is great and Gene is extremely easy to work with. Highly recommend.
We stayed at Gene's apartment for 5 nights and it was great! He gave really clear check-in and out instructions and was very easy to contact. The apartment was very clean and we felt right at home. It is also in a really accessible location to many tourist attractions. Would definitely recommend!
Gene's apartment was absolutely perfect, realistic walking distance to all of the tourist destinations around Hollywood. 30 second walk to either taxis or the Hollywood/Highland, with several shopping options to satisfy anyone. Neighbourhood is very peaceful and safe, away from the late night shenanigans and neighbours were very welcoming whenever we met one. The apartments equipped with all the essentials you'd need and since it is cleaned by professional cleaning services before check in, there's no problems with cleanliness. Gene was also a pleasant and helpful host, always an lightning fast email away if we had any questions. Overall, Gene's apartment definitely will not disappoint.
Gene's apartment is cosy and it is located at a great location. It's just within walking distance to the Hollywood Boulevard.
It was our first airbnb experience and it was a great one!
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 !
