Leah was a fabulous host! We loved the space-it was right near the beach, shops and great restaurants! She gave us plenty of ideas for what to do around the area and offered many amenities to make us feel at home, thanks Leah!
Great location close to the bustling part of Abbot Kinney. Leah's home was clean and spacious. You'll have a great stay here.
I recently stayed at Leah's place with 3 friends, and we all agreed that we couldn't have asked for a better host or place to crash for the weekend. The place could not have been in a better location; right on the corner of Venice and Abbott Kinney, we were able to walk to all the restaurants, bars, and shops that we could ever need. As a host, Leah could not have been more accommodating. Her local recommendations book helped us navigate the scene. If we did have any questions, she was always quick to respond. 5-star service and spot in my opinion!
The appartment is as described and seen on the photos, arranged with good taste. Leah is a nice and caring person, the place is full with maps, books and personal reccomendations. Great location, just at the buzz of Venice. However this means sometimes loud neighborhood. You have to be avare of the thin walls, which could be a challange with two kids :)
Leah's place is in the ideal location if you're looking for a mix of shopping/eating and beaching. Located at the start of Abbott Kinney's trendy stretch past Venice Blvd, it's the ideal location to explore Venice's shops, restaurants and beaches. Everything is at your doorstep. There is a bit of noise at night as you are located off of a main road, however if you are looking to be close to the "Venice scene" you won't mind it. Leah provided us with a book with great recommendations of restaurants, shops, etc. - many of which we tried out and loved during our stay. Thanks for everything Leah!
The space is very open and usable. The beds are very soft and the bedding is cozy. Leah was welcoming and friendly.
Leah’s place was exactly as advertised and she was a great host. The apartment was fully stocked with tp,bounty, shampoo, ect…she even picked us up some apples and chips as an added bonus. She gave me her personal phone number and responded to my texts within minutes. I don’t have anything bad to say and would 100% stay here again next time im in town.
What a Cozy apartment!
If you are visiting LA, this is the perfect place to stay. Steps from the heart of Abbott Kinney, full of restaurants, bars and shops and minute walk to the Beach! Easy free parking. Leah is very kind! She's a perfect host! Give us a list of the best things to do, restaurants and much more. She invited us out 2 times e we spent very good times with amazing people!
I Highly Recommend staying here and hope to be back soon!
Leah was quick to reply to my query about the kitchen equipment and accommodated us with an extra air bed, blankets and towels during our stay. She also baked us come cookies and brought over Monopoly for our kids to play. The space was clean and spacious if a tiny bit worse for wear in the beach-bungalow sort of way (gaps under the door, windows that close crooked), the kitchen minimal but adequate. If you'll be making breakfast at home but eating most of your meals out, it's just perfect. The beds are warm and cozy and comfortable. The location is great for shopping, going out at night, walking to the beach, and even street parking wasn't too hard. There was an issue with the heat while we were there. The weather was unseasonably cold for Los Angeles and the gas wall heater was not working, somewhat to Leah's surprise. She did say she's getting it fixed, and I know she was concerned about our comfort. We got by on effective space heaters, but without carpets and more substantial heat we were cold at home.
Leah was a great host, and very accommodating of our last minute booking. The location was perfect for exploring the local area, only a 10 minute walk to Venice Beach. Abbot Kinney was also great with lots of interesting shops, bars and restaurants.
Leah and her friends were a pleasure!
