Shaked (email hidden). He was out of town and arranged to have someone else there to meet us. He was accessible via phone and text with any questions I had. I had some trouble figuring out the air conditioning and he walked me through it.
The loft is very nice, clean and well maintained. Great view at night from the bedroom upstairs!
This elegant little loft was just super! The apartment is totally private while annexed to the larger house where Shaked lives. There is a separate gated entrance and a lovely terrace that is made private from the neighbouring property by a dense and towering hedge.
The loft is architecturally designed and so is efficiently laid out to give a full house feel (email hidden). Set into the steep hillside the two story windows offer views of the sunset and skyline that are gorgeous.
The bed in the loft was ultra comfy and the cupboard space was abundant. The fireplace was lovely to have on when nights got quite cool. There is another separate heating/cooling unit that was welcome on the unseasonably cold nights.
Just steps down the hill is the corner of Hollywood and Highland with all the entertainment and sparkle anyone could want while several blocks' walk away is the entrance to Runyon Canyon with serene trails and outdoor yoga. The Hollywood Bowl is practically around the corner on N. Highland and access to 101 highway right there takes you to Universal Studios in minutes.
Ralph's on Sunset, Gelson's on Franklin, Trader Joe's on Hollywood are shopping options with other convenience stores in walking distance.
The parking is by permit - provided by Shaked - and there was never a problem finding a space on the street.
The WiFi was adequate for computer use, but we sometimes found it a bit slow for (website hidden) video.
Shaked was an attentive and responsive host. When the fuse in the heating unit needed replacing, Shaked responded immediately and was always a quick text away on any questions about services or recommendations in the area. He even gave us the number of the best hair stylist on the planet!
We heartily recommend this charming place and we will look forward to staying here again on our next visit to L,A.
