We rented this property just a month prior to our visit. It was our 1st time in LA so we didn't really knew what was a good location in this city. I have to say that this spot is great if you want to visit LA and especially be close to Hollywood and Beverly Hills. The beaches (Santa Monica & Venice) are also not too far and the road to get to them is simple. The house is one block away from famous Melrose avenue where we found many good restaurants and stores. Farmers Market and The Grove are also very close by. As the advertisement says on the property information: ''Location, location, location'' is true. It is a perfect central spot for visiting LA in general.
As for the house itself, it surpassed what we expected. That place has been renovated lately and is very clean, spacious, well arranged and fonctionnal. All the pics on the website are pretty much representative of the reality. This house is large enough for 6 persons (3 bedrooms), Our party was 4 adults and 2 teens and we never felt that we needed more space for the week. At the end of the day, we were looking for coming back at home and enjoy a good dinner, and stay out on the patio to watch the moon or the hills while gathered around the outdoor firepace. There is a central sound system in the house from which you can play the radio or your ipod and then broadcast the music in every rooms of the house with independant volume control. That is a very nice feature.
As for the host (David), he is very kind and helpful and he has answered all of our needs and questions. We travel a lot and we are usually ''picky'' about hotel rooms and house rentals, but let me tell you that we have been very pleased with this rental so we highly recommend it!! If we can come back here one day, we will certainly rent this house again!
