Our family is originally from Russia and Ukraine. When we came to Los Angeles some 23 years ago; both of us fell in love with this city, especially its unique wheather and views.
Edward Sigal purchased this townhome in 2005
Its our personal residence where we stay from time to time . We just decided to share the place because of its closeness to worldwide attractions like Universal Studios, Universal City Walk , Hollywood, Sunset Blvds, Mulholland Drive, Malibu, Beverly Hills, Venice & Santa Monica beaches.
Me and 8 other friends decided to come out to California and find an apartment that will fit all of us. Choosing this was the best decision we have made! The unit was very spacious, comfortable and very nicely decorated and we loved it! We cooked most of our meals and the kitchen worked great for us. Eating breakfast in the balcony upstairs was lots of fun and very relaxing. Also, the house was very clean when we got there and was very easy to maintain. Rada took us through the house and explained everything which was very helpful, while Edward made the booking process very easy and answered any questions we had.
Since we did not have a car, we had to rely on public transportation (which wasn't as bad as people say) and uber. However, the house was close to the center of Studio City, so it was easy to navigate to and very close to everything (especially Trader Joe's), so location was also a success. We managed to see everything in 5 days - Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Runyon Canyon, Universal Studios and even strolling around Studio City which is a very cute place.
Overall, we had a great time visiting Los Angeles and much of that was thanks to this amazing apartment and Edward and Rada who helped us with everything. It was such a great house and I would recommend anyone to stay in it. Definitely looks as good as in the pictures if not better! Our vacation would not have been this amazing if we stayed anywhere else, so thank you very much Edward and Rada!!!!
Where to begin....the owners left no toilet paper or paper towels in the place which would have been no problem if that was in their listing. They also advertised it to sleep 9 which is not the case. My husband and I brought 5 employees with us and 2 of them had no place to sleep except on the floor, the owners suggestion was that we slept together- really? She also took 30 minutes to show me how to turn on lights and open doors. There was a HUGE leak in the ceiling in the master bedroom that kept us up the first night, water all over. One of the shower heads had a little plastic piece holding it on the wall, we think it was broken before we got there but regardless they charged us $100 to fix a plastic piece that I found online for $1.99. One of the neighbors parked behind our car in the the garage which cost us $100 in Uber cab fees so that we could get to our meetings on time in LA. I could go one but I chose this place because of the high ratings but now I am wondering if they are padded reviews. Such a terrible experience, would never recommend this place. If you do decide to rent anyhow- bring your own soap, toilet paper, paper towels, make sure you always take your shoes off when you enter too and turn the lights off when you leave the rooms- the owner was adamant about that. Please....
Our family (me, my spouse and two teens) stayed at this Studio City condo during our recent visit to LA. The owners Edward and Rada were excellent to work with. They were very responsive to any questions or concerns. The location worked really well for us as it was very close to Universal and had quick and easy access to the freeways. The unit is very spacious and has everything you would need for a stay. The secure underground parking was perfect. The unit was spotless when we arrived.
The only cons we had was that the unit was quite noisy. Sounds carry in from outside and the unit next door was under construction so it was not quiet. There were a few minor items (like having only one wine glass) but they did not impact us. Overall it was a good place to stay and staying in a rental unit like this is much better than a hotel .
Even with a late arrival due to airport traffic, we were met late in the evening to be shown around the house. The owners were very friendly, and very thorough with their tour of the house. The condo is located in a beautiful neighborhood, with many conveniences (such as a Trader Joe's) right around the corner. Waking up in the morning to a brightly lit area, it became clear how clean and well maintained the townhouse really is. Even after forgetting a few necessities, the owners were kind enough to quickly send it back to us via FedEx. Highly recommend for anybody looking to spend some time in Los Angeles!
We spent the thanksgiving week in this unit and really enjoyed our stay. We come to California each Thanksgiving and I have to say that this condo is as nice as any we have stayed in.
