Fantastic! Our first airbnb stay in the US. We didn't actually meet Bruce, but he left us in the capable and welcoming hands of Gary and Gail his long term airbnbers. The apartment was lovely, very clean and modern. As we had only just arrived from our flight from the UK we were very weary and tired and we were looked after so well. Unfortunately we only had the one night staying there and didn't have chance to use the pool etc. Maybe next time!!! Having not slept for 24 hours we were grateful to Gary and Gail for such stimulating conversation, taking us up to normal bedtime in LA. We awoke from a great night's sleep in Bruce's mastersuite bed very relaxed and refreshed. We did speak to Bruce by phone and he was so helpful explaining where to go and he arranged for Gary to meet us outside the apartment to guide us to parking and he very kindly helped us with our copious luggage! Thank you , Bruce, Gary and Gail.
Bruce did such a great job at making my mother and myself feel welcome! This apartment was right around the corner from the new apartment I was moving into, so it was a perfect place to stay for a few days during the move-in.
Bruce is very hospitable and his dog Cosmo is absolutely adorable!
We stayed here only for one night. The house is amazing and very clean, Bruce was very nice! Wish we could stay longer!
Bruce was an exceptional host. We arrived late and he made sure we were set up and comfortable (fresh towels and coffee press ready to go for the morning). We would definitely stay with Bruce and Cosmo again!
Neighborhood and property were exactly as described and the stay was very enjoyable! Bruce is one of the sweetest and most hospitable and friendly people you could ask for - he definitely went above and beyond to make sure that my friend and I had a nice stay and he is very easygoing and kind. He definitely knows where there are great places to eat and he's fun to talk to and his dog Cosmo couldn't be any cuter!! Friendly boy just like his owner. The two of them would make anyone feel welcome and I enjoyed chatting with him. Definitely made two new friends and I would 1000% (no, not a typo) stay here again when I come back to L.A. I highly recommend Bruce as a host and the property as a great place to stay - everything was top notch and first rate. Thank you, Bruce!
My husband, myself and our little dog Josie just had the pleasure of another visit to Bruce's beautiful place. Bruce and his adorable little dog Cosmo welcomed us back and made us feel right at home. The weekend included barbequing by the pool and relaxing in the air-conditioned comfort of Bruce's luxurious apartment home. While Bruce offers grab and go continental breakfast from his sparkling clean refrigerator, Sunday morning was a real treat.
Bruce's lovely girlfriend Deb joined us for a late morning breakfast. Bruce's famous cinnamon French toast and sausages were absolutely delicious! Another item to note is that Bruce has a french press for making exceptional coffee.
We loved that Bruce's place is so centrally located. After breakfast we popped over to Topanga Canyon (a beautiful short drive) for a walk on the beach. It was only 22 minutes door to beach! Then we went to Beverly Hills for a little shopping and back to Bruce’s place (21 minutes from Beverly Hills).
Thanks again Bruce! We will definitely be back soon!
The two days with Bruce and his lovely dog cosmo were without exaggeration our best airbnb experience. Bruce is a great host who took immediate care about every question or problem we had! He provider us with insider-tipps for our next stop at Sa Fransisco and his apartment is awesome, clean and spacious. We are thankful for the great time we had with Bruce & Cosmo! :)
Staying with Bruce was great! He made us feel very at home, with tips about the neighborhood. The space and complex was great! I hope to stay with Bruce again next time I'm in the neighborhood!
His dog was awesome too!
Very friendly and welcoming. Thank you Bruce
Bruce is awesome! Even though it might be hard to believe, his place looks exactly like the pictures. Super clean. Super safe. Beautiful neighborhood. Bruce is also extremely accommodating when it comes to last minute changes. Oh, and his puppy, Cosmo, is adorable!
Some Cons: Bruce's place is also approx. 1 hour from LAX (approx. $60 via Uber) and approx. 40 minutes from Beverly Hills (approx. $41 via Uber). If you plan on exploring Los Angeles, take into consideration the infamous rush hour traffic and the cost of car services (stay somewhere close to where you need to be). FYI: Lyft is a tad bit cheaper than Uber.
Even though continental breakfast is advertised, it is not offered. However, Bruce is super cool about letting you use his kitchen utensils. Plus, Target is 5 minutes away, so you can easily get some groceries for cheap. His girlfriend is not welcoming, but she is hardly there, so not too much of a big deal.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay, but I might stay somewhere closer to the heart of Los Angeles the next time around. However, if you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, I highly recommend.
Bruce and Deb were great guests. They were friendly, courteous and quiet. Communication with them was a breeze and they left our place very clean and tidy. We would be happy to host them again and would highly recommend them to any future hosts.
Bruce (and his family) were great guests! He was great with communication, and took really good care of the place. Got a chance to hang out with him and great guy - look forward to hosting again!
