Easy going, educated, young professionals who love to travel and enjoy meeting other travelers .
Chris and Paul are the perfect hosts. Book this apartment with confidence, because there are no surprises- just a quiet, comfortable space in the perfect location. Bed is comfy, poolside is sunny, and all is as it should be. I know I'll be back for another stay.
Great location and space. Easy to deal with hosts with excellent communication. Thanks Chris and Paul.
While Christopher and Paul were AMAZING, I would have to say their apartment was not, unfortunately. (Sorry C & P!) The main common area of the apartment is modern and swanky enough, but the curtains were kept drawn virtually all of the time, which made the whole apartment very dark. (This may be because the pool area is just outside, so they are going for privacy.) The bedroom I rented was quite large and had its own bathroom, which was great, however, the room was not well-presented. It was cluttered with guitars, a surf board, and other "I don't know where to put this so I'll put it in the spare room" kinds of things, with no apparent rhyme or reason. The bed was a single mattress (no box spring), nothing special, but reasonably comfortable. There was a TV and DVD player, but I was told there was no cable and they would have to check to see if the TV was hooked up so that I could watch a DVD. I opted to watch one on my laptop, which just seemed easier and worked just fine. The area rug in the bedroom looked like it needed a vacuum.
The bathroom is small and mouldy. The hook on the back of the door was bent and barely hanging on. The cabinets were filled with things that I imagine belonged to one or both of the hosts. The toilet seat was unattached on one side (I discovered by accident). The light switches were filthy with caked, aged dirt, and the bedroom and bathroom had a general feeling of uncleanliness. So I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when I came home one afternoon and found a small cockroach crawling outside of my bedroom door. (Again, sorry C & P, but these are things I would have wanted to know as they would have greatly impacted my choice to stay there.) I told Paul about the bug as soon as it happened and he was mortified and sympathetic. He brought home baits right away and said they hadn't seen a cockroach in a long time (and my experience is that cockroaches are prominent in LA, particularly in Summer) so while I was understanding, I was still freaked out as I didn't have an expectation that there would be cockroaches in my paid accommodation. Paul laid the traps everywhere in my room and the hallway, which kind of gave it a land mine feel as they were EVERYWHERE (12 traps in all). Also, the common area of the building had an unpleasant stale smell permeating the air.
On the very positive side, Christopher and Paul couldn't have been nicer. They were very quiet, welcoming and respectful. They helped me with my luggage and made sure I had everything I needed. They invited me to use the kitchen and provided a beach towel and sunscreen if I decided I wanted to lay out by the pool. They were so very kind, which is why it really is such a shame that I have to write this review. Their kindness is why I'm giving this accommodation 2 stars instead of 1.
The stay was clean, comfortable & easy and the location couldn't get any better. Christopher and Paul were very helpful and communicative. Would be happy to stay here again.
Nice apartment and location. Although i didnt spend much time at the apartment, Christopher was a great host and made me feel comfortable staying in their home.
I came for a quick working weekend with a friend, and Christopher and Paul's place was just the thing. Their location is great, with plenty of on-street parking. Christopher and Paul were really great guys, and great with suggestions for restaurants and nightlife. I really can't recommend their place enough!
My stay at Christoper and Pauls was nothing short of perfect! They were lovely people and were really fun to chat with. The whole place was beautifully and meticulously decorated and the guest room was really comfortable with lots of space.
Everything was provided for (including cute bottles of shampoo/conditioner and fresh soap!), and the wireless internet made life so easy for a traveller.
The location was brilliant, very close to Santa Monica Blvd and with everything you need in walking distance (including a liquor store than sells Moet champagne for $35 - heaven!).
It was so great to visit this city and live like (and with) locals - I have very fond memories of my stay here and hope to return soon! My best Airbnb experience so far.
Really beautiful apartment and a very nice sized bedroom. Christopher was a great host and I had a wonderful stay.
Bathroom was stocked with towels, bath products and everything one could ask for.
Wifi was working and very fast.
The place is in a great location in a nice west hollywood neighborhood walking distance from lots of great shops and restaurants.
Would highly recommend this place.
This place was great. Ok, the scoop: You get the big room and your own bathroom. Location is great, right in the heart of WeHo. Chris and Paul were super nice, would definitely stay again.
Beautifully decorated apt with charming & artsy host, Paul.
Was located in the heart of west hollywood and it was walking distance to most restaurants and bars/clubs. Huge bedroom with private bathroom. Will stay here again.
Super wonderful guest! Christopher was very clean and quiet during his short stay in my place. I would highly recommend him to any host as he was the perfect guests to have. Thanks!
GREAT GUYS JUST IN TOWN TO GET THE JOB DONE AND BE ON THEIR WAY.. SUPER CLEAN CALM AND QUIET!
COULDN'T ASK FOR MORE FROM THESE TWO GEMS!
Christopher was a great guest and a pleasure for me to host. He was out a lot as he has lived in NYC before and has many friends around. He was very nice and respectful.and he kept the apartment clean, like this was his own home. As an Airbnb host himself, he knows what an ideal guest should be. He is very welcome here again any time and he gets my highest recommendation. When Kei and I visit L.A., I hope we can stay at his home. /Ida
