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 of this property
We stayed at Marys place for 4 nights and everything was perfect. We are a big family (6) and the sleeping rooms were comfortable. Parking space in front of the house! Close to Hollywood and easy to go anywhere (with navigation system!). A car is needed. Everything was clean and nice, especially her husband Herb (nice)!
Localization between downtown LA and Hollywood is very favorable.
The landlady is very kind and helpful. We felt comfortable.
Die Lage der Unterkunft zwischen Downtown L.A. und Hollywood ist sehr günstig.
Die Vermieterin ist sehr liebenswürdig und hilfreich. Wir haben uns dort wohl gefühlt.
The apartment is big and comfortable. We didn't meet Mary at all, although she announced to come the second morning.
There was no information or a city plan in the apartment. Therefore it was very difficult to find back to the apartment without car and navi. We were going by bus to Santa Monica and it took us 3 hours to find back. Searching the adress someone told us, that we were walking in a dangerous area. We were upset abouth this missing information and would not recommend this apartment
Reviews for this host's other properties
It was not the standard we are used to, sofa beds are old and unable to sleep idem. Sakrena to the kitchen is too old and needs replacing.
It is also what the neighbors say through walls and floors.
The area the apartment is located is not so fun, but easy!
We can think of hiring of Mary again if fixed with the apartment so standaden will be higher than it is today!
Apartment was clean and in good condition. Everything needed was in the Apartment. Food shop in sourrounding area. Couch in living room is a little old but still in o.k. condition. Connection to Highway is 2 blocks away.
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.
