Fabulous,wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Michael's place is the best vrbo I've ever stayed. It's filled with art, is beautifully and stylishly furnished, and is extremely well appointed. Also,the bed is better than mine at home. There is a wonderful garden and patio in front and it is on a quiet street in the exciting neighborhood in West Hollywood. Finally,, Michael is a very nice guy, and was extremely helpful to us.

Adorable, comfortable and extremely convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay here. I was a little nervous beforehand about the street parking and availability but we never had a problem finding a spot to park. The home is lovely and the beds/bedding are very comfortable. I would love to stay here again on my next visit!

Very convenient to all La attractions

  • 3 of 5

Overall the location of the property is prime to a lot of locations and attractions Sunset Blvd, Melrose Ave Universal Studios, Griffith Park, Chinese theater.

The house it's self is nice walls are thin so if there another guest on the other side you will hear them. I'm not a pet owner and there was pet hairs on the furniture and with house being closed up and the Ac being turned off upon entering the house there was a musty smell in the back bedrooms other then that our stay was nice.

Great! Fun! Easy!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at your lovely home just off Melrose was perfect for me and my wife. Great choices for restaurants and nightlife was an easy walk of a few blocks. Driving to other areas of Los Angeles was also easy. The home had everything we needed and was warm, inviting and comfortable. We especially liked the speakers in the bedroom since we listen to music much of the time. We hope to visit again soon. Thanks again.

Met all expectations

  • 5 of 5

We are so pleased with our stay in this lovely house. All amenities as listed were provided. Comfortable beds, nice supply of towels, and, if you decide to cook, the kitchen is fully equipped with a superb stove and an amazing selection of cookware to work with. The A/C worked flawlessly.

The location is ideal and provides a respite from the rest of bustling, traffic-laden LA. We were so pleased to be able to leave the car parked and walk to some very nice restaurants on Melrose. Shopping for groceries is also a short walk away.

Michael was helpful and made booking the stay an easy experience.

We would definitely stay here again!

Comfortable and Charming

  • 5 of 5

Two of us stayed there over the New Year's holiday and it was a very pleasant stay. The house was very nicely furnished - comfortable living room and dining room, nice open kitchen and a very comfortable king sized bed (we did not use beds in the second bedroom). The house is also very nicely decorated with an ecclectic variety of artwork, framed pictures and other assorted pieces. One of the most enjoyable things about the art and collectibles is that the owner apparently has an affinity for pigs - lots of very cute pig figurines and other pieces! The nice thing about the way the house was decorated is that it really warmed up the place; made it feel like a home.

The location was spot on! We were able to walk to a lot of places in the WeHo area and even up to Runyon Canyon for some exercise. If we had to drive anywhere, the house was conveniently located to all of the main thoroughfares. Although only a block off of Melrose, the neighborhood was fairly quiet.

We definitely recommend this propertly and will most certainly keep it on our list for when we head out to sunny CA again.
