My family and I flew in from Pennsylvania not sure what to expect since we were going off of the pictures provided on the internet, guess what? it was exactly as it was portrayed and perfect for our trip. We purchased groceries, the distance to any market was within 3 to 5 miles, and able to make homemade meals. The decor was cool, the apartment was clean and spacious. I was able to get a nice run in since it's adjacent to a park with a cool dirt trail. It centralized to anywhere we wanted to go within 45 minutes to an hours. Helen was absolutely on top of it answering all of our questions. We plan to stay at the same place on our next trip. And yes, I have a friend coming out to LA and we will recommend this place to him and his family.
