After a 6 day (and pretty hectic) business trip in San Francisco, this was the perfect retreat for me. It has that feel as the apartment is situated at the back of the main house, amongst a very pretty tranquil garden and setting. As soon as we arrived Dale made us feel at ease and helped us in and showed us around. He was very helpful with our car too, as so was Deborah. I completely agree with the reviews that this is a hidden gem, away from the hustle and bustle of, be it Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive. The owners and hosts Deborah and Dale are amazing people. They were helpful and approachable throughout our stay (and didn't mind us breaking one of their plates, that's of course not to say that it's ok to do this!). A car helps here as although all the main attractions are close by, traffic in LA is on par with London (ie not good!). Using public transport would lengthen your day to day journeys/travels greatly. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone considering staying here and next time I am in the area, I would consider staying again too. It's a beautiful place owned by lovely welcoming people.
