  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay with Ben and Javier

Everything is nice and luxurious

The address is in the middle of Hollywood with walking distance to Hollywood boulevard

We where sad to leave and wish to come back again someday

The property is absolutely amazing. The pool area is like a tropical paradise.

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this property to anyone wanting their expectations to be exceeded. The room was beautiful with all the accommodations that you would ever need. The bed, tv's and satellite system were wonderful. The pool and jacuzzi are absolutely amazing but the best part of this rental are the host Ben and Javier. They are absolutely amazing people that make for such a fun and comfortable experience. They are just wonderful good hearted people that we fell in love with. We literally did not want to leave. We went hoping to experience Hollywood and LA and ended up with something so much more valuable- new friends. Thanks for an amazing time guys!!! We will absolutely be back!!

Not family friendly

  • 2 of 5

The location isn't very family friendly. I would advice against a family staying in this area. Our vehicle was broke into a few blocks away and several valuable items were stolen. Plus we had to drive around the next day with a taped window. My wife and son never felt very safe or comfortable.

Owner's Response: We're so very sorry that your car was broken into whilst parked in the Ralph's supermarket parking lot , which is many blocks away from our home. We would always caution our guests to not leave valuables visible in their unattended cars . Coming from a large city one might know that . We're sorry that embittered your entire LA experience. We have had hundreds of thoroughly satisfied guests , including families, who have had the most wonderful vacations enjoying our beautiful home , heated swimming pool and jacuzzi. As well as all that Los Angeles has to offer visitors in the various tourist attractions closeby. It's too bad you didn't exchange your rental car so that your family would not have felt unsafe driving around a major city with a taped window. It's unfortunate that your experience left you feeling so uncomfortable and critical of our property when it in fact had nothing to do with staying in the home ... which we put so much love and attention into , in order for us and all our guests to enjoy . Best wishes to you guys . We enjoyed hosting you ! Ben and Xavier

Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 night stay with Ben and Javier. We fit comfortably in the downstairs unit - 2 adults, 2 kids. The full kitchen was handy and the pool/hot tub was great for the kids at the end of our days. It's a beautiful backyard. We loved the proximity to all the restaurants, walk of stars, etc. It truly is in the heart of the action! Ben and Javier were very helpful on ideas of places to eat and things to do. It was a pleasure meeting them and hearing their story. We would definitely stay here again on another visit.

Just another fabulous stay in West Hollywood!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have now stayed with Ben & Javier five times. This time we traveled with our daughter and my mother. We have now stayed in each of the three units and we don't have a single bad thing to say. The location of this rental is just perfect! It is walking distance to Sunset Blvd, Runyon Canyon, Hollywood & Highland, and tons of wonderful restaurants. We always rent a car when we're in LA and we routinely visit the Griffith Observatory, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Venice Beach and Malibu, as well as all of our favorite places in West Hollywood. When we actually take the time to relax, Ben & Javier's backyard is a perfect oasis in the heart of this beautiful and busy city. When you are taking a dip in the pool, or just putting your feet up in the lush yard, it's hard to believe that the hustle and bustle is just mere blocks away. We always look forward to coming "home" to Ben & Javier's place and will continue to visit for years to come!
