4/5 star. See additional comments.

  • 4 of 5

I would give it a 3-1/2 star, but vrbo does not have 1/2 stars. Four star rating because of very kind and attentive owner, roominess, and excellent location to airport, Hollywood, Burbank, Santa Monica, UCLA, etc. Great neighborhood. Off-street parking. I did not give a 5 star because the place was not very clean. Blinds, window ledges, and cabinets looked like they hadn't been cleaned in a very long time. Dirty walls were very much in need of paint. Ceiling peeling. No electric outlets in bathrooms. Owner brought an extension cord but had to use the mirror behind the sofa to do hair. Lots of big dust bunnies. I would stay here again in a heartbeat IF it was painted and cleaned thoroughly. You couldn't find a nicer owner. He even offered to have our groceries there when we arrived.

Stay in Westwood

  • 4 of 5

I had surgery at UCLA and needed a big enough place for my husband girlfriend and I to stay. This was perfect. The house is two stories in the kitchen have everything we need a bathroom and shower upstairs bathroom downstairs 2 bedrooms one that had two beds and the other a so bad. There was heat for the cold evenings that cold mornings. The TVs had a few problems but as soon as we called David he took care of it. I even had a problem with the car and he drove all the way from his home to the hospital to pick me up. That was above and beyond. I would definitely stay at one of his properties

Attentive Host - But Property Not as Pictured

  • 3 of 5

The photos for this property are not for the property we stayed in. Apparently, the property has two units and we stayed in another unit that is not as pictured. The actual decor is miss matched and shabby. However, the host was very attentive and accommodating regarding check in and check out. The neighborhood is convenient and nice. The front picture of the house must've been taking many years ago as the door knob is all but falling off and the paint is badly peeling. We were there during hot days and the place did not have air conditioning - so the sleeping was uncomfortable.

Quiet spacious unit

  • 5 of 5

The rental has a good sized kitchen with all of the necessary equipment to make meals and the bedrooms are spacious. I appreciated the hardwood floors, and mid-century kitchen and bath. Wi-Fi and TV all worked well. David was a pleasure to deal with and easy to reach. It is only a few blocks from UCLA campus and all the major roadways. Parking is off street to the rear of the property. I would stay here again!

Quiet and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay! David was a perfect host, checking on our needs thought our stay. The home was clean, comfortable, and very convenient to visit our child at UCLA. The home is located in a nice neighborhood within easy walking distance to dining and shops, and Westwood Village. I think we found our home away from home when visiting West LA.
