Liked the place so much I stayed on, great place just like a home from home. Al was a very accommodating and a fun upbeat host.. I would highly reccomed
Al's house is very clean, warm and comfortable. He prepared milk, drink, snacks even toys for kids. I like the decoration especially the stone part. We spent a very happy night here. Thank you, Al. Hopefully we will come again.
Very nice place! Thank Al for his hospitality.
Al responded promptly to my initial inquiry. He went out of his way to let us in 3 hours early so we could drop off our bags and go sight seeing. The apartment looked as it did in the photos. Al had fruit, water, bagels, juice in the kitchen for us for breakfast. A newspaper came Sunday morning. The apartment is about a mile from the beach and it was great to go running on the beach each morning. The kitchen was great for cooking. I would stay here again. It was a good location for seeing Venice Beach and Santa Monica and much more affordable than local hotels-- plus more space. We didn't use weight room, pools or spa, but they were there and in good working order. One minor disappointment. It would have been nice if there had been an information sheet about how to turn on the T.V., turn off lights, internet password and instructions on using the key to get in and out of the parking garage and elevators. We had to figure out most of these on our own, though Al did send wireless password. It also would have been helpful to have 2 sets of keys, since one cannot enter the garage or elevators without them. All said, it was a great home base for our time in West L.A.
I live about 25 miles inland from Playa del Rey and was hosting an out of town guest. Instead of staying at my small apartment, we rented Al's place for a few nights. Al is terrific - nice, friendly, easy-going - and his place is great. It's close to the airport, and just 1 mile off a major roadway and about 1 mile from the beach. Perfect location particularly if you're interested in exploring Santa Monica, Venice, Southbay, and Malibu. The accommodations are comfortable and artsy, and include lots of day-to-day amenities (coffee maker, hair dryer, onsite laundry). I'll definitely recommended it to friends and other out-of-town guests.
Apartment was clean and very comfortable.
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The apartment was nice and comfy. Close to Venice. Al was a good host. He responded to questions promptly and was helpful when ever we had questions. I would recommend him to friends
Great place near the LAX. Al made the apartment stay feel like home.
Al is a really nice person. I met him the summer of 2011 as I stood at his appartment int Los Angeles. After the trip I flew back to Europe and realized that I forgot my new sunglasses in the rental car in LA. I asked him to go to the rental car company, pick them up and send them to me. He did everything very quickly and without giving any problems. So I am very happy that he helped me.
I recommend to anyone to go to his nice place in LA, as he is a great host.
