Marie's place is cozy, quiet, and clean. I enjoyed my stay for the weekend and look forward to coming back again. The location is absolutely fantastic, can walk to trader joes, beach, starbucks, etc. theres also nice lake/park literally right next to the house.
Very nice welcome from Marie. Lots of explanatory post-its throughout the house, coffee and muffins. The check-in and out were very smooth and flexible which made our trip easier. Apartment was clean and as described. The communication with Marie was perfect. Fast and clear.
The only downside I'd say is that it's very noisy. Cars are racing on the big boulevard the house is on at all time making it difficult to hear the sound of the TV at times. Even with closed windows is was still noisy. Both the living room and the bedroom are by the boulevard.
Marie's place was perfect for my workweek in LA, equidistant to Hollywood and Palos Verdes, where I split my week. The place was clean and nice. Marie was super flexible, even making arrangements to get me the keys after a lengthy flight delay out of NYC. Highly recommended and I will see if Marie's place is available next time I am in LA!
The host canceled this reservation 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Marie was a wonderful hostess! Great attention to detail! Loved the Starbucks, fresh pastries, lovely notes with important information. So close to everything perfect location. She was there if needed to answer a question otherwise very respectful of privacy. Perfect communication and flexible!! Highly recommend! THANK YOU!
You were great as well! Thank you so much for being an excellent guest! :)
Observed many house rules just fine, but not all. The communication wasn't great (for instance, they were late arriving and didn't reach out, I had to reach out to them) and the trip culminated with a misunderstanding over leaving bags where they did not understand that leaving bags is not the same as renting the apartment for another day. I don't think they'll make that mistake again, but they also went into things where I asked them not to. But since my NYC apartment is small, I rely on being able to trust guests in my space. If your needs are similar, this is worth noting.
I've known Marie for about 7 years and she is very trustworthy, responsible and will make sure your stay with her is great. She enjoys traveling and has traveled internationally quite a bit, and lived overseas. I actually had the chance to stay at her apartment recently so I can speak to the space you'll be renting. It is a very nice one bedroom apartment in Manhattan Beach. You can walk to the beach in about 25 minutes or so which I did one morning. I felt safe staying with her and her bed is very comfortable! She has a nice living room with a big TV and all the cable channels and good wifi. She can give you lots of tips on LA especially great restaurants to eat at. The apartment complex is very cute and I felt very safe staying there.
