We were staying 3 friends in the Ruby deux apartment which was perfectly convienient for us than to use a hotel (Price/value ratio). The apartment had everything we needed, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 living room + fully equiped kitchen, TV in each room, Starbucks in the house. The speed of wifi ideal. The tandem parking lot spacious for even 2 cars. The apartment is on the 2nd floor heading into the busy Wilshire blvd, sunny but not totally quiet for someone who used to sleep in absolute silence, the windows are not sufficiently soundproof. Generally recommended to other guests,final score 95%

We stayed at the Ruby for 5 nights a few weeks ago as we moved our daughter out of her flat in Westwood (she just graduated from Ucla) and back home.
The staff was very accommodating from Kaitlin in reservations to Laurie at the check-in. We told Kaitlin about the move, and she told us about craigslist, and our daughter was able to sell most of the larger items from her flat before we arrived. She also helped us with transport from/to the airport, and to the Ucla campus. It was effortless to get to Ucla via metro which was just outside our door.
We live in Montpellier, and were really nervous about finding a place all the way in la. The Live Luxe staff were overly accommodating. The flat was not too large, but we were only 5 people so it was perfect. As well, the pool is located in the main building next door, but it was very easy to get there and it gave us an excuse to get Starbucks.
We will definitely stay again, and reccomend to our friends.
Thank you for your wonderful review! We look forward to welcoming you back!

We stayed at the 2 bedroom apartment during our vacation recently. It is located in a quiet residential area and there are grocery shops nearby although not exactly within walking distance. There is a Starbucks just around the corner.
The apartment is fully furnished and has all the amenities anyone would need, be it microwave oven, dishwasher, washing machine & dryer as well as high speed wireless wifi, which is any traveller from overseas would definitely appreciate. There is a TV in each of the bedroom as well as living room.
There is a comfy queen bed in each of the bedroom as well as ample storage in the walk-in closet in the master bedroom. The sofa in the living room converts into a bed and extra linens & pillows are available for the sofa bed. So, the unit is able to easily accommodate 6 people easily and comfortably.
For those driving, there is a space for parking in the secured garage, which is very convenient.
Overall, it was a delightful experience at the apartment, it was a home away from home. In addition, the staff at Live Luxe, Laurie and Kaitlin, were very helpful in attending to our queries & requests.
Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure hosting you and your family. You're welcome back anytime!

We rented Ruby from Dec.13 to Jan.3rd and had a very good experience with the apartment and with the Live Luxe's staff (especially Laurie). Four people can sleep confortably in the 2 bedrooms but the 5th person (in our case - family of 5) had to use a sofa bed in the living room, which wasn't so comfortable, considering a stay of almost 3 weeks. Because of the little space available in the living room, the table can be used by only 4 people. 5th & 6th guests can use banks at the american bar.
We had an issue with the microwave oven, but Live Luxe staff solved it in the same day. The quickness was awesome.
Some kind of "surprises" not easily found in the property description: 1) I could park 2 cars in the parking lot (not necessary for us, but that may be interesting for other guests). 2) There is not a street view from the apartment: the windows and the balcony face an internal patio of the building.
The building's location is great: you feel safe and can visit some tourist places (like Lacma) just walking but having a car is better (there are many buses in the Wilshire but subway is not available). There are plenty of near convenience stores and places to eat, such as Ralph's, Starbucks, Subway, Staples, Walgreens...
Thank you for your feedback! It was a pleasure hosting you. Yes, the Ruby is a bit quaint, but location and amenities cant be beat and still twice the size of a NYC flat :)
I wish you had called to express your concerns regarding dining with us, the additional two dining chairs are in the bedrooms, as keeping them in dining area takes up too much space. The table easily pulls from wall, and they fit right in. As well, pulling out the sofa bed may be a bit cumbersome, but we do offer 5-star comfort air beds for rental as well. Next time, try our 3 bedroom, the Turquoise!
