A lovely apartment with space for our family of 5. Handy for visits all over LA and a great base to see th City. Clean, welcoming and great communication with hosts.

A really great place to stay, especially after a long flight. The location is really quiet and private, a nice haven from the busy city but still easy to reach from the freeway. Julie and Chip were really friendly and easily reachable.

Flat was lovely, tidy and clean and accommodated all 5 of us comfortably. Julie was always available for any questions thought there weren't many. We decided not to rent a car and commute into town was easy with busses running frequently!

Julie's place is so nice and cozy, just like described. Very clean, plenty of towels provided, kitchen was well equipped too. Julie was very nice to deal with, responded very quick and with all the information provided she made our stay relaxing as we knew what to do. I would very much so recommend Julie's place and hopefully will be back one day.

Beautiful apartment, with boutique hotel touches on our arrival; mints on the pillow particularly appreciated as was the chilled water in the fridge. The welcome book was excellent. Owners very accommodating. Clean, comfortable and well appointed. The area appeared to be up and coming and bohemian, a more true example of LA. It was relatively quiet except a particularly vocal bird at night.

We really liked this listing. The check-in/check-out was very easy and the host was super helpful leading up to our stay and during out stay. There was an organizer with all the info and apt direction we would need during our stay - wonderful. We had a jug of cold filtered water waiting for us in fridge which was very welcomed after a long trip. I used to live in LA for over a decade and yet I wasn't very familiar with the area, but it is a great base for getting to DTLA, Hollywood and Pasadena. The place was very clean, which is extremely important to us. It was welcoming and cozy, with enough spices, ground coffee, paper towels (even a cafetiere) and other little things there that were a great touch and meant a lot altogether. We would come back.

Response from Julie:
Nina, my goodness, thank you so much for such a lovely and well thought out review. Having the apartment as clean as can be is my first priority, so I'm glad it met with your standards. You were the perfect guest. Come back please!

Stayed here 10/12-10/14 Such a lovely place. The view is beautiful! We came down from Monterey CA for Hollywood Horror Nights at Universal Studios. The Airbnb was perfect for the distance only being 15 mins however with traffic took about almost 25-30 mins. The home is very clean, super cute, and comfy. The queen bed I wish I could lay and sleep in forever. Everyone in my party enjoyed their stay. They did say the futon and twin bed was a little hard. The bathroom was clean and had all the towels we needed. The streets are super narrow and coming back and forth was a little hassle. However with the view, distance, and privacy this place is a gem. Washer and dryer was so helpful too. Very glad we got to stay, the host was very helpful and kind.
