I'm an actor, spending most of my time between LA and NY. I love traveling and meeting new people. I go to the golden bridge yoga at least twice a week to get my koundalini yoga dose :)

Shak's place is in the perfect location, a very short walk to Hollywood Blv and Ralphs Grocery store only 2 blocks away. Runyan Canyon walk is at his doorstep and a more lengthy but doable walk to sunset strip and the grove shopping centre, both took me around 30 minutes.
His apartment is bare essentials and only enough cutlery and crockery for one, but more than serviced my needs.
The pool and spa were very clean and always working. Shak was abroad but answered any questions very quickly and was a great host. Thanks Shak
Shak was the best host, taking care of all of our needs quickly and effectively. The apartment is located in a very quiet and central location in Beverly Hills, close to all the attractions and shopping centers. It is good value for your money if you want to stay in this area.
Shak and his place are great. I had a lovely stay. The apartment was clean, had everything I needed and Shak answered any questions I had within seconds. Will be coming back for sure. Thanks Shak. :)
The house was amazing. In the heart of Hollywood, amazing condo with a great view! I had a wonderful time!
My friends and I were looking for a reasonably priced hotel in LA with decent amenities and a good location, and were coming up short. I decided to give airbnb a try, and I am definitely glad that I did!
Shak's place is in a great location, the apartment was clean and inviting, and the complex amenities were better than most hotels! The best thing about Shak's is the location; it was such a short walk to the main drag on Hollywood Blvd., which is perfect for those who are looking for entertainment without having to get in the car. The pool, sun deck, and hot tub in the complex were very clean and classy. My friends were amazed that I found such a nice place.
Shak was a wonderful host; very prompt with correspondence arranging our stay, accommodating with our group, and included new towels and blankets for us to use. It felt like we were in a hotel!
I would recommend Shak's place to anyone looking to visit LA. Thank you for the great experience Shak!
My friend and I were traveling from Australia and stayed in LA for two months. One of those months were at Shaks apartment and I couldn't recommend it enough!
The location is amazing, literally in the middle of the action. Just off Hollywood Boulevard and right outside is a bus stop which we used to get to The Grove quite regularly. Also a short walk to get the bus down to Venice Beach and Santa Monica.
If you feel like walking it's not far from Melrose (amazing shopping) Also super close to Runyon Canyon if you're up for a hike. We went out for a few drinks at The Roosevelt which is literally a 5 minute walk.
The building was safe and secure which is something we look when staying overseas. Everyone who lived there was super friendly. Great pool, spa and rooftop area with great views.
The apartment itself was clean and spacious. There's a cute little balcony which also offers a lovely view.
Shak was extremely helpful and accommodating and we'd be more than happy to stay there again!
Thanks again for everything, Shak!
My mother, Aunt and I went to Shaks place in May. We came earlier than expected and was able to reach Shak and he let us drop off our luggage while the place was being cleaned. We literally walked a few blocks and we were right in the middle of all the biggest tourist attractions off of Hollywood Blvd. We went to the wax museum saw the Chinese theatre was walking among the stars on the sidewalk. There are tons of areas to shop! Everything was super close! Even the grocery store was walking distance. Shaks place was very accommodating he left us a bottle of wine as a gift, gave us his personal information so if we had any questions we could call. The place was very clean and had a bedroom and the living room had a futon. The building offers two pools with hot tubs and nice sitting area and we were able to have our own parking spot that Shak provided for us. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is visiting California for the first time and doesn't plan on renting a car! it's the perfect location!
Shak's apartment was in a great location for us and worked out really well. He was an excellent communicator and did everything he could to make sure we were comfortable. The WiFi was very fast and it was nice to have the luxury of a bathtub. Two notes as an FYI: the TV doesn't have a cable box, it is an actual cable plugged into the wall (I'm not familiar with TV stuff but my partner says this means you don't get as many channels). And the pillows were rather lumpy. That said, it was something we forgot about every day in the convenience of having easy parking and an awesome location. We would definitely recommend Shak's place.
Lovely place - lovely hosts. Shak and Kira were both so hospitable. They both went out of their way to make my boyfriend and I feel welcome during our week-long stay at their place (even dropping off fresh towels to our doorstep the morning after we moved in.) Everything was just as described -- subterranean parking a double plus. The apartment was in a safe neighborhood, was clean, bright and warm (an added bonus because it was *cold* in LA this January!) and there was plenty of space for us to spread out in. Easy to get to Beverly Hills and Hollywood/WeHo too. Would definitely come back and no hesitation about recommending to others. Thanks Shak and Kira!
Shak was a wonderful host, welcomed us with wine and a guide of where to go close to the apartment. Great location, 5 minute walk from the famous hollywood strip where you can shop, see the walk of fame, eat and take in the famous sites.
The apartment block had full facilities including a well equipped gym, pool, safe and self parking. Shak's place was well equipped with everything you'd need, appropriate for 2-3 people.
HIghly recommend staying here, Shak is always very helpful, accommodating, quick to respond and only a call away!
Shak and Kira were great. Very friendly nice couple. Our rental space is above our living space and we are always concerned about noisy guests. We hardly knew they were here. The apartment was left pretty much like they found it, clean and everything in its place. They have set the bar pretty high for our guests in the future.
