I love to travel and love trading space with people from all over. Enjoy my apartment the next time you are in my corner of the world.
Great place, fab location, friendly host. Felt welcome and safe. Highly recommended.
We had a great stay over Labor Day Weekend. The apartment was clean, easy to access, safe, and really centrally located to great neighborhood eating and shopping spots. Barbarella was a great host as well-in touch the whole time, and responsive to our requests. She even dropped a few "extras" by during our stay to help make our vacation more comfortable (including a fan to mitigate the unprecedented heat). Bonus points for adorning the place with fresh flowers, and for having a bottle of wine on the coffee table when we arrived!
We stayed at Barbarella's for a visit with family in LA area. The location CANNOT be beat! Two blocks to the beach, just steps to great coffee, shopping, restaurants. We rented bikes and easily cruised to Venice. The apt is exactly as advertised/pictured. Great Beach Bungalow. Our host was very quick to respond to text and emails before our visit and when we arrived. And, she helped us out with some special requests. Thank you, thank you!
We had a nice time at Barbarella's Bungalow.
It's very close to the beach and main street, with lots of shops and bars.
The building itself it's a bit old and the apartment is without a dining table, but for surfing or young people it's very good value.
Barbarella is very very nice host, she was always very helpful and she even let us find in the bungalow a welcome bottle of wine.
We had to change our schedule and she was extremely flexible and helpful, thanks!!
We fell in love with this place as soon as we saw it. It was amazing. We had wine waiting for us as soon as we walked in. This place is full of character. You also can't beat the location. So close to the beach, shops and restaurants. Would stay here again in a heart beat. Thanks again!
Barbarella has a very cool place. A good eye for interior design as well as a lot of original features gives her apartment bags of charm and leaves you the impression of a stay away from the city at your second home by the ocean. Barbarella's communication in the run up to our visit was excellent and we were welcomed personally with a bottle of local wine to toast our arrival in LA. If we had had any questions, Barbarella was staying just a few blocks away.
The neighbourhood is very relaxed and safe, as well as being just a stones throw from the beach where you can jog, ride or just lay in the sun in between trips into the city. Excellent cafes, boutiques and restaurants are found within walking distance and there is a very nice vibe to the area. Parking was not a problem, there were always spaces just metres from the apartment, making these side trips for shopping etc hassle free. It was a great base for us and we felt very quickly at home and part of the local community. Highly recommended!
The bungalow is perfectly located. Very close to Main Street, with all Shops, Restaurants and the lovely Farmers Market. It is also only 2 minutes walk to the beach. Barbarella was absolutly nice and responsive and the appartment was cozy and very clean. I highly recommend this place!
I did not end up staying at Barbarella's but she was so incredibly helpful. Based on the funky beauty of her place, I booked my reservation for an upcoming trip which promises to be stressful. Shortly afterwards, I realized that her place did not meet my needs after all, and I asked to cancel. (I had a very good reason!) Barbarella showed a level of kindness and consideration that I would have expected from a close friend, not a stranger doing business! She allowed me to back out of our deal--without even guilting me! (Airbnb itself made the whole transaction very easy.)
Next time I stay in LA, I will definitely seek her out! You can't go wrong with communicating with Barbarella. I'm hoping this review will bring her some well-deserved traffic!
Barbarella was an excellent host. This was my first airbnb stay and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Barbarella's apartment is very welcoming and Barbarella checked in throughout my 8 day stay to see if I needed anything.
The location is incredible - a short stroll to the beach with countless shops and restaurants steps from the apartment.
My friend and I had a wonderful time at Barbarella's beach Bungalow! The apartment is superb and the location is absolutely perfect!
Ideally located about a 3 minute walk to the beach and at the corner of MainStreet where there is tons of fun little shops, restaurants and bars. Barbarella is a wonderful host, gave us plenty of suggestions of things to do and places to go. I highly recommend staying there, it's a little gem! ;)
