Great place to stay! Conveniently located in one of the nicer areas of downtown LA. Host was very friendly & communicated well. Great views from the balcony too. Definitely recommend!
The whole experience was more than I excepted. The process was easy. The apartment is even better than the photos.
Joseph's apartment was extremely accurate to the description and photos listed. The overall experience with Joseph's apartment was so enjoyable and we had no complaints.
The doorman (the one that works in the morning) was A++++++ and made our time in L.A so much easier by helping us with everything we needed.
The view was great and Joseph was fast in answering only a day or two before the booking.
We weren't too crazy about the space though and actually moved out to a hotel on our last of 3 nights, even though we had paid for that 3rd night.
To us, it felt grungy. The bed was two mattresses on the floor with a small pillow for each of us.... very college dorm. We got into bed after arriving late and immediately started scratching (hmmm). Joe obviously lives there and then takes off if someone rents it for a few days. There aren't many amenities, a couple of rough towels which we 'hoped' were clean, a tiny bathroom that is hard to get around in, and a balcony with four or five dead plants on it. It's very clear a guy lives here, there's no feminine touch to be seen.
To improve, Joe needs to realize that he needs to provide an experience. Rather, it felt like he just left his place to a buddy who was going to crash there for a couple of nights.
Leave a few fluffy white towels sitting on the sink so we know they're for us, clean your fridge out a bit, get a BED and make sure you've got some nice clean sheets and a couple of nice fluffy pillows on EACH side. Make sure the comforter is clean and there's adequate lighting. Call the next day to check in and see if anything is needed.
The view alone is not going to do it, there needs to be more effort than that. This was supposed to be a weekend getaway for my girlfriend and I, but we ended up not getting intimate because the bed just seemed too nasty. Not the good kind of nasty either.
I feel bad saying all this but I wouldn't recommend it as it is now. If Joe made some changes it would be great. It's in a good location downtown with lots of great little coffee joints and cafes. The view is great and the furniture is a fine blend of shabby and sheek. It's just the experience and cleanliness that needs improvement.
We really enjoyed the stay, it was exactly what we needed for the event we were attending downtown and a lovely space!
Space was beautiful. View was gorgeous. Honestly better than i expected. Book it!
We had employees flying in that needed a place to stay for an extended period. Joe was great - quick to respond, easy to navigate - our employee that stayed there was very happy. Definitely recommend.
Joseph's unit exceeded my expectations; the photos do not do the place justice. Joseph was even kind enough to show me the unit in person before my stay began. The location puts you in the heart of downtown; the morning and evening views are impeccable from the terrace. The place was well kept and clean upon my arrival. Joseph was available to answer my questions at any time during the day. I would definitely recommend this gorgeous apartment to anyone staying in downtown, and I would not think twice about booking with Joseph for my next stay in the city.
So first off I've only used this site outside the US, but it's amazing. Well actually, Joseph was awesome! Hands down he helped me out so much. I had the most hectic weekend trying to find places for friends and family since our original place was cancelled on us last minute. Luckily right before I gave up, he had his place available. Personal plans didn't seem like what I had imagined but it ended up even better.
The view from the patio is amazing! He suggested to leave the patio door open and serious kept the place refreshing. Cute cute setup. It felt cozy somehow and I did not want to leave.
This place is so convenient to get to local bars and to experience different vibes all in one night!
I'll need to come back real soon.
Rented Joe's place for a private birthday party that I was hosting. Joe was extremely helpful and his directions/instructions were absolutely perfect and very detailed. He was quick to respond and answered all my questions. On top of all this, his loft seriously has THE BEST view! I loved his decorations and little nicknacks around the loft, which gave it an urban/ hipster feel (very LA). Most definitely will be contacting Joe again in the future if I ever wanted to host an event!
Joseph and his seven friends stayed in our house for a bachelor party. Joseph was very communicative throughout the booking process and with his arrival time. They took really great care of the house, left it in great condition, and even washed all of the sheets before departing. Would recommend them to any other renter, for sure.
