We had a wonderful time staying at the Tropical Studio which has everything you need to feel comfortable. The Apartment is lovely decorated and has its own beatiful Patio to sit outside and to relax. The property is secluded with lots of bautiful tropical plants. Albert and Frank are amazing hosts and they helped us with a lot of things and were always within reach if we needed something. It really felt like home here. The neighborhood in general is nice and quiet but also close to York Blvd. with nice bars, vintage shops and restaurants. We really love this place and would definitely come back.

I can't say enough about how wonderful my stay was with and Frank and Albert in their studio. Their space transports you out of LA and makes you feel so serene and relaxed. They provided fruit, wine, and juice to help get the stay started. I really felt like I was tucked away in a cozy cottage somewhere in the mountains and hated having to leave. This will be my go to if ever I need to stay in the LA area. Most importantly, I didn't feel like their guest. It was more like close family friends. I felt like I was visiting from out of town and my uncles were letting me stay in their guest house as long as I needed to. I mostly interacted with Albert and he is truly one of the loveliest people you will ever meet!

Albert and Frank are two of the nicest hosts you'll find. This is my first choice of airbnb's to stay when visiting LA (if it's not already booked!) The studio is beautifully appointed, within walking distance of hip and delicious restaurants and bars, and has a lovely shaded patio to sit and sip a drink while taking in the lovely surroundings. Their 2nd apt (Urban Oasis) is another tasteful and comfortable unit. Can't wait to return!

The apartment was very, very clean and looked like the wonderful pics. Very serene. No matter how hot the day was the minute you step up to the porch at Franks's place it is cooler. Frank and Albert were my best Airbnb host so far because they went way past providing a clean, lovely apartment . They provided 'little' details. Like choice of orange juice, yogurt drink, and water in the refrigerator for the guest. Bottle of wine. Sugar. I didn't realize I needed sugar until I was making my morning cup of coffee! Napkins, paper towels. We didn't get a chance to pick up little supermarket stuff until the day after we arrived so those details were priceless. They pretty much all the cooking utensils you need if you needed to cook. The surroundings are very quiet and serene whether or not you want to meditate. Hot water works! Tub nice size. Bathroom clean, shower great, Towels provided and little soaps! Wifi fast. Tv/cable works! Bed comfortable. I could regulate my own temperature easily. Parking NOT an issue at all! I wanted to be closer to Hollywood area because I needed to do work there daily BUT it truly is not that far to get to! There were many ways to get into LA bc freeways were close. Frank's area is very safe. You don't see folks walking around, people in this area live quietly. It is only a three minute drive to the main road and big supermarket (Super A) and pedestrian and vehicle activity. Frank and Albert were very accessible. Only a phone call away. Albert met my niece and I and showed us all about the apartment. We met Frank a little later. Both very lovely. Although they lived above us we did not see them at all. We had so much privacy. I am trying to cover all the things that occurred to me. I loved this Tropical Studio and these hosts. Affordable! Thank you for those 'little' details! We noticed them and appreciated them. Had a great time in La!
