About Alexander McDonald

I grew up in LA and work as a video editor. I love my job as well as hosting people from all over the world in my favorite neighborhood. My son and I live in the front house. I'm proud of my VRBOs and do everything I can to make sure your trip is enjoyable. I'm available via email or phone if you need anything.

Alexander McDonald purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Alexander McDonald chose Los Angeles

I've lived in this neighborhood for twelve years and always had my eye on this property. I'm only the third owner since 1914. It's a historic craftsman house in front with two amazing units in the back that I rent out on VRBO. There is a giant orange tree, lemon trees, fig trees, peppers, pomegranates. If you stay while any of these are in season please try them!

This location is perfect. Walking distance to all the fun of Hollywood but far enough away from the excitement to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. The outdoor patio is relaxing and fantastic to get some work done or just hang out. I try to keep the price LOW to make sure you are getting a great VALUE. My formula is just to provide a safe, clean, comfortable, fun apartment at an UNBEATABLE price. So far it's working out really well and people are really enjoying their stays here. Fantastic neighborhood, central location to visit LA, excellent value, walk to restaurants and all that Hollywood has to offer

What makes this apartment unique

The location is amazing - so close to so much that Hollywood has to offer. My brother and I built the redwood fence that encloses the garden patio area where guests can relax. Laundry room, free WIFI, parking spot, it's a great place at an unbeatable price.

The unit was exceptionally clean and comfortable and had a well-supplied kitchen. The owner was good to deal with and provided all the information necessary to make arriving at the unit easy and relaxed. Definitely recommend staying at this unit.

Super Nice guy. Prime Location. Amazing Value

  • 5 of 5

This place was charming and in a central place in hollywood that we felt safe. The unit was cozy and really nice to stay in. The owner, Alex is a very cool down to earth guy that made reserving a breeze. He was able to book us on last minute and would love to stay again. Very pet friendly unit which was also nice.

Cute little retro studio with all the essential necessities and centrally located !

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was the perfect location, close to stores, Hollywood, Rodeo Drive, Sunset Blvd., Santa Monica beach and even Disneyland. It has washer/dryer and all the amenities of home. Had a small private backyard with patio set. Could have a used a BBQ grill which I thought I seen in the picture.

I probably would not ever get a hotel room again after staying in a VRBO. Its a lot less expensive per night, than a hotel and you can cook and not have to eat out all the time and travel lightly at the same time.

Location, Location, Location!

  • 4 of 5

The unit is within 10 minutes walking distance of Hollywood Blvd and about a 1/2 hour walk to Paramount Studios and the Hollywood Forever cemetery. It was clean and comfortable, great to have a full kitchen and bed/sitting area. Wifi and TV worked really well. Some may find it a bit noisy but I felt the other positives outweighed this negative. I would also suggest the owner look at adjusting the gate into the property as it wouldn't open very far.

Great

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at the nicest apartment for 3 days, as last stop of our road trip. The place was great, it gave us a very warm feeling and we loved it! Even if it wasn't huge, it was perfect for what we needed: well equipped kitchen, bathroom, cozy bed, washing machine and dryer, ironing table...

The location was perfect, it takes less than 10 min walk to get to Hollywood BLVD and it is also very close to the bus stop that goes all way to Santa Monica Beach.

We really appreciated the availability of the owner, ready to help us right that second we needed something. Not everyone is..

I will be back!

Much needed vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed the last 4 days at Alex's apartment in West Hollywood and had a wonderful time. The apartment is cute and very comfortable. The bed especially. Has everything you would need, and the location is fantastic. It is nestled in a quiet, safe neighborhood, and within walking distance to Hollywood Blvd, Sunset Strip, and a very short drive (don't have to get on the freeway, which is a big plus) to Universal Studios. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks again Alex.
