The most comfortable lodging for a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I met my son and his family (wife, one year old) for 4 nights at The Havenhurst. What a perfect location, on a very quiet tree lined street and within a short walking distance to Santa Monica Blvd. or Melrose Ave. where there are lots of restaurants and shops! The house was immaculate, had every comfort of home. The beds were very comfortable, kitchen supplied with every need and even had items like coffee, sugar, spices, etc.! The back deck and yard is very private and lovely at any time of the day! Thank you, Joe, for the fresh flowers and bottle of wine! The information notebook had answers to any question we may have had, and we appreciated the list of restaurants and food markets. A perfect start to a perfect vacation. I have rented vacation homes/apartments in the US and Europe, and this property is at the top of the list for comfort and location!

Exactly what you hope for!

  • 5 of 5

I never met Joe but he was the perfect host via texts. Everything was easy, comfortable, clean and yes, a great location to call home for a couple of days. Thanks Joe, will always recommend The Havenhurst.

P.s. make sure you check the parking signs in the street, we got a ticket..

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the sweet review. So sorry to hear about the parking ticket- you bring up an excellent point about remembering to read parking signs throughout the city. I’m not sure where you received the ticket. The good news is on our block and just around the corner from us there are no parking permits required. Parking is available on each side of our block- 24 hours a day – 7 days a week- with the exception of a weekly two-hour street cleaning which we remind guests to be aware of in FOUR different documents: the agreement, check-in information, welcome letter, and our guidebook. In addition, we provided a 5th document to let you know the city of West Hollywood had lifted their parking restrictions for Friday, Saturday and Sunday of that weekend because of their annual festival. In any urban area cities make a lot of revenue off parking violations- so we like to provide FOUR different reminders as to how NOT to get a ticket while parking in Los Angeles.

Excellent location, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband and 11 & 13 year old sons) stayed here for 4 days and enjoyed lovely sunny days here, despite it being the middle of Winter! We sat out on the back deck for morning tea before setting off for Santa Monica, or walking to Melrose Ave, or a short drive to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The beds and lounge were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The washer and dryer worked well. Nice safe neighbourhood.

Joe was easily contacted and his information pack was very informative in respect to closest supermarkets and restaurant favourites. We tried a couple of the supermarkets and restaurants and enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Nice "Pad"!

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue! We are from Michigan--my husband and I took our 3 kids on a California coast tour, starting in San Diego and ending up in SF! We made the Havenhurst Bungalow our "base-camp" for exploring L.A.! Lovely, comfortable bungalow. Of course we did West Hollywood, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, toured Warner Bros, etc. and this was very convenient. Traffic was really rough (very long commute with hitting traffic at all times) getting to and from the beaches, so you should either make a day of it at the beach or find closer accommodations to the beach if that's your thing. Joe, the owner is very accommodating and attentive--most interested in making your stay comfortable. He was happy to spend time on the phone or emails answering ALL my questions! Very nice, safe neighborhood. Parking availability on the street was not a problem--we parked right out the front door of the bungalow most times--on street cleaning day (1 evening), we had to park a block away (but not a big deal). Two bedrooms, full bath, well-stocked kitchen, laundry (with supplies!) and family room--all this much more reasonable (and nicer!) than a hotel!

Return Rentes' Rave!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second rental with Joe. Last year we stayed in Bungalow 2 ( Excellent!), this year we gave Bungalow 1 a try. We cannot say enough positive things about our Havenhurst experiences. The bungalows are a perfect place to experience Los Angeles. Bungalow 1 is also a small piece of heaven. The rooms are comfortable, the layout is perfect with the living areas in the front and the bedrooms in the back. Sleeping in is no problem if other guests are up and about. The kitchen is very well equipped and easy to use for everything from preparing a snack to a full meal. Having the washer and dryer right there is a major convenience if you are staying more than a few days. With all the windows there is plenty of sunlight and ventilation if you wish or air conditioning if you need it. Both bedrooms are extremely comfortable and the bathroom is very conveniently located by the bedrooms.

The deck in back is excellent to sit and relax or for meals. The garden area gives you even more room to enjoy the wonderful Los Angeles weather.

Within easy walking distance are Melrose Avenue for shopping, L.A. style, or Santa Monica Blvd. for more practical purchases. We especially enjoyed having Marco's Italian restaurant in one direction and the Improv Comedy Club in the other direction both about two blocks away!

We HIGHLY recommend either bungalow for short or long stays in Los Angeles and for exploring from Malibu down to Redondo Beach. Also, working with Joe is always a real pleasure. He is the perfect combimation of personable and professional. Always responsive, always pleasant, and always polite. We are already looking at our third year rental and hope we have the opportunity for many more!!!

Highly recommend the Havenhurst!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the Havenhurst! Joe is a true professional and a pleasure to do business with. The home was immaculate when we arrived. The fresh flowers and bottle of wine were a welcome touch, as were all the amenities of this rental, including Direct TV, a guide to local attractions, local restaurant menus, plenty of towels and a well-stocked kitchen. Joe was incredibly responsive to any questions or needs we had. I couldn't figure out how to get the Direct TV working (certainly my own incompetence!) and Joe came over within 10 minutes to help me set it up. The house is located in a lovely neighborhood that is central to all LA has to offer. I will definitely plan to stay at the Havenhurst for future LA visits. Thank you!
