Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

OK, this was our 10th stay here. We chose it first for its location near family. It's perfect. But we love the duplex- it is always our first choice.

Spanish colonial architectural gem in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Came here with some family members and was immediately taken by this sweet flat that feels like it was lifted from the set of "Chinatown." A great launchpad for an L.A.-themed visit with easy access to Farmer's Market (and a bevy of great pie selections at Du-Par's), Hollywood, LA County Museum of Art, and that stomping ground from my youth, the La Brea Tar Pits, which in fact are not tar, but are made of asphalt. But I digress. House is accessible, in a nice location on the edge of the lovely Hancock Park. Trader Joe's nearby. Coffee around the corner in an oh-so-L.A. juice bar. A very reasonably priced find. Would happily stay here again.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Duplex, while we were staying for 2 weeks with our family of 5 people. Apartment is perfectly renovated, in a very nice neighborhood with lots of activities close by. This was our second stay at the Duplex, and we would love to come back again in the future. We can absolutely recommend this place without any restrictions.

Beautiful, Peaceful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Okay, I don't really know where to start. This home is in a great location, very convenient to a lot and very safe. The owners were very accomodating in providing us with an air mattress for my 12 year old. We did not do very much cooking but the kitchen is fully stocked with appliances, dishes, pots and pans. The house is SO cute and retro. I really love the architecture of these homes. There is a grocery store named Ralph's maybe 3-4 blocks away. We had breakfast at Lassen's Health food store which is on La Brea about 2 blocks away.

The other great thing is that there is a full size washer and dryer which allowed us to pack light.

If you have time to relax and just chill, there is a great selection of books to enjoy.

The home is extremely clean and all the towels and sheets smell so fresh.

What else can I say? You will love your visit to LA even more by staying at this home.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Good location-- 1/2 block from transit

(We took it right up to Hollywood Bowl) and not far from the famous Leo's taco truck at Venice and La Brea. We walked to LACMA easily.

Owner was quick to respond and made check in and out very easy. Apartment is very spacious, clean, and has comfortable furniture and beds.

We loved the tile in the kitchen and bathroom and we loved the vintage light fixtures. Great statement paint colors on the walls. Kitchen was well equipped. We really liked the place!

Neat historic duplex

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the 1930s duplex. It's in a convenient central location in Los Angeles near the museums and Fairfax district. The kitchen and parking are small but that is standard for the era of the building. Apartment was clean and well furnished.
