“Home away from home haven in Los Angeles”
Reviewed 30 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015
people found this review helpful

If you are fortunate enough to be reading this review, you will be aware of the informative website for Relais in LA. Lance Bowling, the proprietor has provided an inexpensive, close to downtown, residential haven that you sometimes wish you hadn’t rented because you won’t want to leave. We have traveled to many places around the world over the years and have never encountered a host like Lance. We were greeted with his usual fresh flowers in the rooms, a fruit dish that lasted a week, sherbet, cookies, coffee, bread, farmers eggs; essentially everything you need to get started. Just in case we wanted to cook there was a gas/charcoal BBQ, and a fully outfitted kitchen (I bet many chefs would envy the cooking gear he has in the well-stocked kitchen). If you think you’ll get a good deal with the spacious well-outfitted comfortable environment he provides, wait till you see the extras like the stereo system, 3D TV, extensive music collection and hundreds of books. He also has an impressive and extensive collection of movies, which he will provide through the mail slot on request. As Lance says, he made sure he bought the best of everything and it definitely shows. His intention is to provide a home-away-from home and he has succeeded! Unfortunately we had only allocated a week in LA, so were gone every day to see the sights and couldn’t make use of the amenities as much as we would have liked to. Lance even had that covered and provided lots of information about the area and insights on what to do. There is just too much to mention here, but as I said earlier, just review his website to get the full list. Believe me, all of it is true. I could be writing through the night and still not cover the good times we had at Lance’s place. We won't stay anywhere else when in L.A. This is one of the times when that old adage “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”, doesn’t apply.
