If you are not planning to rent a car, I would not rent this apartment. This is a very convenient location to go to all the various attractions because it is centrally located.
Spacious, lots of light, this 2 bedroom apartment is all yours.Queen bed, 4 twins (bunkbeds) all with memory foam make comfortable sleeping with central heat and air conditioning. Fully furnished kitchen with spices. Futon couch in LR. Porch/futons
This huge, comfortable and airy apartment is located half way between Hollywood and Downtown LA. With it's central location you can be at the beach as quickly as Disneyland. Also please note that Los Angeles has a 14% occupancy tax that I must collect when you arrive.
LIVING ROOM has a leather futon couch and another leather couch.
KITCHEN is fully furnished: pots and pans, dishes, silverware, spices etc.
BEDROOMS: one has a queen size bed with memory foam and the other bedroom has 4 twin beds with memory foam. They are super comfortable. All brand new sheets, pillows, organic cotton blankets.
You have Access
There is a patio table and chairs on the patio.
I usually meet with you when you check in to show you how everything works.
This is a quiet area with neighbors who are professionals: nurse, screen writer, etc. Please note that there are about twenty stairs to reach this upper apartment.
Parking is included Free at your apartment. If you have a second car, you can also park free on the street. The metro is about 8 blocks away and there are local buses within 2 blocks.
Other Things to Note
The building is sort of ugly on the outside...beautiful on the inside. I look at that as making it more safe. There is one parking spot on the property for you.
Take a day trip out to Malibu and relax at beachside restaurants like Moonshadows, Gladstones, and Paradise Cove.

Reviews for this host's other properties
We had a great stay and can recommend this place! Mary was a very kind and helpfull hostess.
When we arrived in the LA conglomerations, we contacted Mary, as stipulated in the long contractletter we got from her with the do' s and don'ts of our stay in her appartment. In that first contact she came up with roomnumber 6, confusing us ( this is from hindsight) with the six students that actually rented the nummer 6 room. It is true, in the afore mentioned letter the nummer 2 of our appartment does appear, but are we to blame for the confusion? In the second contact by phone she leashed out against us, stating that she was very busy and stressed because she was moving her household from one place to another, and that of course she didn't recognise us from our last name. She never showed up ' in persona' .
The appartment, it is fair to say, was allright and well furnished, the promised 'cosiness' we had to postpone.
We spent 5 nights in Mary Apartment Apartment (3 Adults). It was at the beginning of a 4 week-tour and we had found on our entire trip not so nice apartment again. Mary greeted us herlich, although it was as planned (22:00) a little later.
The apartment is fully furnished with everything you need, very spacious. quiet and clean. We had no neighbors (4 apartment buildings) to have, so I can not comment on the insulation of the walls, seem but US standard (lightweight).
A map with the next Gechäften, stops, etc. was in the room, as well as any Mange reading about LA
Mary has even brought in between us again fresh towels (and a few fresh oranges from the garden). What we did not need was TV.
This apartment is unreservedly recommended again.
Wir haben 5 Nächte in Marys Appartementwohnung verbracht (3 Erwachsene). Es war am Anfang einer 4 Wochen Rundreise und wir hatten auf der gesamten Reise keine so schöne Wohnung wieder gefunden. Mary hat uns herlich begrüßt, obwohl es etwas später wurde als geplant (22:00).
Die Wohnung ist komplett eingerichtet mit Allem was man braucht, sehr geräumig. ruhig und sauber. Wir hatten keine Nachbarn (4 Appartment Gebäude), deshalb kann ich nichts sagen über die Isolation der Wände, scheinen aber US Standard zu haben (Leichtbauweise).
Ein Stadtplan mit den nächsten Gechäften, Haltestellen usw. lag im Zimmer, sowie jede Mange Lektüre über L.A.
Mary hat uns zwischendurch sogar nochmals frische Handtücher gebracht (und ein paar frische Orangen aus dem Garten). Was wir nicht benötigt haben war TV.
Diese Wohnung ist vorbehaltlos wieder zu empfehlen.
Very clean and spacious apartment in a quiet but central location (Disneyland 1.5 h; Universal Studios about 25 minutes - both in heavy traffic). In the area there are supermarkets, restaurants, etc. Mary is a very friendly and helpful host, you can contact with questions / problems any time (she lives right below). In the apartment you will find everything you need (for cooking, vacuum cleaners, towels, etc.). We (4 adults, 1 child) would book the apartment at any time.
Sehr saubere und geräumige Wohnung in ruhiger aber zentraler Lage (Disneyland ca. 1,5h; Universal Studios ca. 25 Min - beides bei starkem Verkehr). In der Umgebung gibt es Supermärkte, Restaurants usw. Mary ist eine sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin, die man bei Fragen/Problemen jederzeit kontaktieren kann (sie wohnt direkt darunter). In der Wohnung findet man alles, was man braucht (zum Kochen, Staubsauger, Handtücher usw.). Wir (4 Erwachsene, 1 Kind) würden die Wohnung jederzeit wieder buchen.
Mary is very friendly, helpful and very caring housing complies with photos, well positioned but essential vehicle
Mary est très accueillante, serviable et aux petits soins
Logement conforme aux photos, bien positionné mais véhicule indispensable
We came back for few more days at this lovely apartment. As expected, it is very clean, tidy and welcoming. It felt like a home far from home.
I would recommend this place for families.
Mary is a very kind person. The apartment is beautiful und clean. Thank you so much Mary! We had a great stay in Los Angeles.
A welcoming facility filled with a lot of thoughtful gestures such as flowers and breakfast ingredients. Mary is very helpful and friendly when we need assistance and she is a talented individual who is engaging to talk to. I would recommend this place for families.
Back to France, I remember these American holidays and the Mary's vacation rental stay went very well. Mary is very attentive. We had more than the expected comfort, what to prepare the breakfast, to enhance our menus, to do laundry. The location is tastefully fixed with beautiful flowers in the room and outside (bougainvillea), and is very clean.
The apartment is located right next to Universal Studios.
If it was not so far away as from France, we would with great pleasure. An address in Los Angeles to remember.
