Great time! Wonderfully convenient!
We arrived at the condo around 3pm and Rada was there to meet us and show us all the operating details. The apartment is as described, except the white futon shown in one of the living room pictures is no longer there. Our party of 7 adults was able to sleep comfortably there, but I think the double sleeper sofa in the second bedroom would be a stretch for two larger adults—especially if two people didn’t want to sleep together! My mom (80) preferred to stay on the couch downstairs to minimize her “stair time”, since the two bedrooms are upstairs, and was perfectly comfortable there. She was looking for some washcloths, so if this is something you need, you should bring your own. There was a washer and dryer and although I bought some laundry soap, we ended up not needing it, but it was sure nice to have in case we had. A real bonus to this rental are the two secure parking places in the lower floor. We did have 2 cars and there was not a lot of available street parking nearby, so it came in very handy, especially given the loading and unloading of luggage. Our whole group utilized the wi-fi connection—so great to have that available to us.
The location is excellent, both for walking to shops, going to restaurants (went to a lovely restaurant two blocks away called Firefly—can’t recommend it enough), and getting around LA/ Hollywood/Burbank area. We went to Griffith Park and Hollywood—using the Metro Red Line to get to Pantages Theater near Hollywood & Vine. It’s an easy drive down Ventura to Lankershim to park in the Metro lot, then a quick ride to Hollywood ($3-round trip). We also took a hop-on, hop-off bus from that spot to see the sites, which was great for my mom who couldn’t do all that walking AND we weren’t bothered by the street vendors. Easy drive (in non rush-hour traffic) from LAX—about 30 minutes. I would certainly come here again. The area felt safe and the convenience makes it well worth it.
