About the property

Townhouse, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Breathtaking 1930's traditional townhouse located in the heart of the Westside. Very close to Beverly Hills, The Century City Mall, UCLA, shops, restaurants, places of worship, LA attractions, and only 15 minutes to the beach.

The unit has been tastefully updated with many of the period details intact. High ceilings, hardwood flooring throughout, recessed halogen lighting on dimmers, new 1080 pixel 40' Samsung LCD high definition flat screen TVs' in living room and master bedroom. New 'memory foam mattress' in each bedroom, extra large bath towels, 1000 thread count sheets, feather/down pillows, and bathrobes. The townhouse is approximately 1500 square feet, and has a fully equipped kitchen, and great formal dining room. Ideal for two couple's, but can comfortably accommodate five people.

Less than a mile (10 minutes walking distance) to UCLA campus, hospital. Quiet neighborhood! Off street parking. Walking distance to grocery store, restaurants and much more.

A hidden jewel

  • 5 of 5

We have always stayed in a hotel right up the street so we knew the neighborhood and know it to be quiet and safe. The apartment is lovely- very comfortable and clean with all conveniences necessary for a very comfortable stay. It worked out so much better than staying in a hotel especially having a parking space!The owner David is great and very accommodating. We look forward to coming back to this apartment when we return to Los Angeles!!

Excellent value and location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in the townhouse over the Christmas holidays with our children (8 and 9 years old) and it was very good value and an excellent location. The unit was clean and comfortable, and our host David was very thoughtful, for instance providing a 2nd bed so our children didn't have to sleep in the same bed. We enjoyed being able to walk to shops and local restaurants, and the location is convenient to both 405 and 10 Freeways and all Westside neighborhoods. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family -- the only reason for not giving an 'excellent' rating is that we found the kitchen and bathroom slightly dated and we could hear a moderate level of noise from the next door renters although it wasn't too intrusive. All in all, very good value and we would stay here again!

Right Choice for My Family

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (8, 5, 2 year olds) visited LA over the winter break for a family reunion. We arrived on Christmas Day and departed on New Years eve. David was a wonderful host and his property was a perfect choice for our stay. My wife and I had lived in Santa Monica 15 years ago (before kids) so we knew our way around the westside of LA. We rented a car and the property's location is very convenient for travel by car. It is close to I-405, Wilshire Blvd and Santa Monica Blvd. From previous experience, public transportation is also readily available from the property's Westwood location. David provides private off street parting in the back of the unit and for our back end unit, there is an entrance facing the parking space just steps away. The unit itself is spacious and tastefully decorated. All the expected amenities are included (dishes, towels, condiments, etc). As described by other reviewers, the unit is older with charm. The unit's style is typical original architecture for the area. Having stayed in VRBOs around the states and around the world, this is a solidly good unit. David is very helpful and easy to work with. The only mild complaint/comment is that a prior renter cooked with heavy spices. You can smell it when you first walk into the unit. Not a big deal for us, but you will notice it. I would recommend the unit and would definitely consider renting again.

Very nice stay in a great location!!

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. I grew up very close to the house so it was nice to be home in a sense. The house itself is quite roomy and great for a family of four. The locations is excellent for accessing any area on the west side of LA and is a convenient launching point to travel a bit further if needed. My only negative is that it has no dishwasher which would be nice to complete the kitchen. The owner is also very attentive and willing to help with whatever needs you may have.

Safe neighborhood in heart of LA. close to attraction

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at this place,we had our car and drove in crazy LA traffic !

we did not do any cooking at this place,but all the basics were provided by owner.There are many eating places around ,loved the Persian foods!

This is an older house ,cute area, small bathroom,don't expect luxury! The owner is very considered and accommodating.

Westwood 2 story Townhouse has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Spent 9 nights here over Thanksgiving to visit our LA son. Really liked the location -- the townhouse reminded me of my grandparents place in Brooklyn -- older with high ceilings and character. Everything was there that we needed for our stay including everything for a Thanksgiving meal (got a fully prepared one at a nice grocery store that just needed to be heated up). David was always responsive to anything before and during our stay. Parking around back was very convenient. Saw his parents who live in front unit and they were very nice. The only thing (and it was minor) was that the dresser in one of the bedrooms was not in good shape, the bottom of two drawers came out when I put something in. When I stay somewhere for more than a day or so I like to move my clothes from my suitcase. Others may not do this, so it would not be an issue. I texted him just to let him know, was not a big deal for me, but he was appreciative that I pointed it out to him. I imagine he will replace it. Definitely a plus to stay here rather than in a hotel, would do it again!
