Ben's the best. I made the mistake of booking his place on my other Airbnb account (business) and had to call Airbnb Customer Service to waive my cancellation fee. They told me I could only get fully refunded if Ben allowed it since technically I violated his cancellation policy - but I wasn't actually cancelling, just wanting to book from a different account. So he immediately communicated with Airbnb and made sure I got all my money back so I could rebook on my personal account. Other than his excellent communication skills - the apartment is exactly as described. Clean, cute, and a great location. I read through a lot of his reviews and also agree with what most had to write. It's hot during the day (but Ben's profile clearly states that under amenities), but when you open the windows at night it cools down. Besides - you really should be staying here for it's close proximity to the beach so you shouldn't be inside anyway! Thank you Ben!

We really enjoyed staying at Ben's place! Its in a perfect location just a couple blocks from the ocean. Ben was easy to communicate with, and he was very accommodating throughout our stay. Look forward to coming back sometime in the future!

Great place to stay if you like being in between the beach and local shops. Ben was responsive and helpful right off the bat! Would definitely stay here again!

I'll start with the good. The TV, the channel choices, the WiFi, the overall location and as one person mentioned, the towels and sheets. And the owner had good communication skills. However, the place needs a serious update, or at least some paint and proper clean. The kitchen is really dated and dirty. We washed everything before using it. Here's our detailed list of items - some of these are super easy yo fix. No knives in silverware - there are steak knives but no regular knives, we used our own to spread butter No pan to boil pasta or eggs - there are two pans, they are too small, we used our own One plug in kitchen - you can plug in two things but you have to balance them on top of the microwave, meaning you can really only plug in one thing at a time Toaster has several non-working/burnout elements Chairs in dining area - 2 of 4 were so wobbly that we couldn't use them - we moved toaster out onto "broken" chair near a living room plug Hardwood floors have some rot - read, you'll get splinters if you go barefoot around the edge of the room Items left on the bottom of the fridge froze - didn't dare touch control One small light in living room - hard to read or see much after dark The shower was a bit of a science project. The curtain never really dried out - it was not really an inside tub curtain. The tub map was similar - never drying and not being something you'd want bare feet touching

Bens place was perfect! For the price, you can't get much better. The location was incredible, super close to the beach and spacious. In a nice neighborhood and really quiet for LA standards. We slept with the windows open with fans on (we brought our own fans) and didn't have noise issues. It's not new by any means but super cute and had everything we needed. I'll definitely be back on my next trip out there. Thanks Ben!
