"I recently relocated to LA from Philadelphia for work. My stay was for one month in the 2 bedroom apartment.
After staying the previous month at a different VRBO property, I was pleasantly surprised upon my arrival by the accommodations and Jim's greeting. He took the time to familiarize me with the property, and made sure that I knew if I needed anything he was just a text/call away. (Which is not always the case with these arrangements.) He checked in with me throughout my stay as his busy schedule allowed, even inviting me up for a coffee and conversation. He was also flexible with my scheduled departure date, which was very helpful. I have come to think of Jim as a friend after this experience, and hope to keep in touch in the future.
The apartment is well appointed with everything you could need for either a short or extended stay. I will start with my personal fav, the steam shower. What an amazing way to start each day! Bedrooms are neat and clean, with nice new sheets and blankets. The second bed is a Murphy bed, which was perfect for making the room multi-purpose as needed. Kitchen has all you need to cook a great meal. I had Friends-giving there and cooked a meal that was enjoyed by all. Even used the BBQ grill in the courtyard!
Speaking of the courtyard, I think this is what made this place feel most like "home" to me. My guests and I enjoyed relaxing outside surrounded by tall bushes and plant-life creating the feeling of being in your own private garden. There are patio tables for eating outside, furniture for relaxing and watching a full moon (In my case the Super Moon), or just having a conversation over a glass of wine with a friend or loved one. I also liked the added piece of mind being on a property that was completely fenced/gated in.
Overall, I couldn't be happier with my choice to stay at this property. Thanks again Jim for helping make my transition to LA a smooth one!!
