Marylin is a wonderful lady. I stayed here for 3 months while I worked. It didn't feel very "homey" to me. Very sporadic decor, no flow, very outdated. No insulation in the apt so it's very chilly right now. Heater provided doesn't actually warm the room. And in summer very hot as you're upatairs also. There is a window air unit but then there was an issue with the electric bill rising during the hot months. Parking is a nightmare but Good location to restraunts. The bed was a huge issue as it is on the floor and you can feel and hear the springs move when you do. I brought it to her attention and she tried to fix it buy giving me money to go get a foam topper for it bc she doesn't have time.I did and it's still not good. Too far brokem for a temp fix. Very old apt,built in 40s and hasn't been updated since like the 70s?? I would not recommend to anyone until a new mattress is bought. I start chiropractic visits next week. Very nice to have your own bathroom in this city. Apt is a very good size but no tv except in bed rooms and it's from the early 90s. Sound is going out. I did enjoy meeting marylin, she is a great person but the apt needs some updates. She is hardly ever there and we had very opposite schedules. But very friendly and helpful as far as knowing places to eat and things to do.

This is the first review that contains such concerns. As I've explained to all guests, I live in a part of LA that is made up of Spanish houses from around the 40's that were converted to large apartments in I believe the early 90's. Sarah did mention some problems regarding the mattress, which is on a box spring. I told her I would be happy to give her money for a topping. The TV in the guest bedroom was purchased probably eight years ago. It's a large screen 32 inch TV, although not a flat screen. Several guests expressed that they liked having a television in the bedroom. Regarding the cold, heat automatically goes on in the building when it's fifty degrees outside. I purposely put a heater in there on the rare occasions it may be cold in LA. Most of the summer and this fall it was hot. Regrettably, this is the first I've heard of any parking concerns. There is a parking permit one can obtain for guaranteed street parking. I will certainly be purchasing a new bed for any future guests.

If you are coming to LA to experience the eclectic and open-minded culture you want to stay with Marilyn. She is a friendly host full of stories and helpful tips. You will find her apartment also acts as a mini museum full of relics from Marilyn's various travels around the world. Location is stellar: one block from Ralph's and Trader Joe's (food stores). Also one block from La Brea where you can find restaurants, hip clothing stores and other thrills but her street stays quiet like a small town.

Marilyn was a great host ! No matter it was a really short time , she was so warm and kind making me feel so comfortable. Her house is cozy as it looks on the site. I really appreciate her guidance as local who knows about the city.

Really friendly and easy going. Was fun staying in her apartment. Quite a nice place. Parking was an issue. Plus the room was not clean and check out time was way early in the morning. Besides that I had fun staying here.

Marat is an amazing host and her place is lovely. She will help you with everything you need but she is also very private and respectful. I really enjoy my staying in her place and the neighbourhood is simply amazing: plenty of shops and restaurants all in a walking distance.

Marilyn was an very nice host with a large apartment in a quiet, residential neighborhood. The room was comfortable and having two supermarkets within easy walking distance was a nice plus. All in all, it was a pleasant stay.
