As advertised and more. Close to everything

It is amazing that the house at this price point can have all this amenities and features only available in much larger and pricier houses; to name a few: water filtering and softening system for the whole house, none of the chlorine smell when you take a bath. Home Theater system in living room with hi-end components, Velodyne subwoofer for example, the owner told us we can play movies as loud as we want because the in-wall speakers can take 300 watt output. All LED lighting with dimmers are installed throuout the house. All bathrooms have shower panels with body sprays; Master bedroom has 3 light controls for ambiance and a hometheater with ceiling speakers and a 48inc HDTV. The other two bedrooms has a shadow inwall speaker system that you can plug your smart phones or Ipod into to listen to surround music. I'll bet most people don't even know these things exist. I recommend the management should create a manual to explain the use of all of these wonderful things they have in the house. I am an audiophile therefore able to figure things but most people probably not.
Another thing I like about this house is it close to everything. Five minute drive and you'd be at a big shopping mall, movie theaters, Safeway, Bank of America or Wells Fargo, A great Asian center with a supermarket and at least 20 restaurants. The freeways are just a few minutes away.
The house is neat and clean. The front garden is designed with simplicity but well-coordinated. Backyard has fruit trees and a covered porch with table and chairs. I think it can do with maybe some less number of chairs and tables. But it is actually not as bad as one reviewer make it seem to be.By the way air conditioning should be listed as one of the strong points of this house. Both upstairs and downstairs cool down faster than any of the houses I stayed in in the past.
I almost forget to mention the kitchen. It has all the utensils, flatware, silvers, bowls, coffee maker, blender, large plates for spaghetti dishes, a full knife set in block. there is undercab lights which make preparing work a little easier.
Supplies are also plenty and of quality: conditioning shampoos and body wash, soft double ply toilet tissues, laundry room detergents, stain remover, clorox,
The exterior lights are automatically turned on at night:two in front 1 on walkway, 2 on the side of the house.

The property manager,Ken, is a serious guy but extremely efficient in providing supports when need.

Everything you need

4 of us stayed in town a few days for a local event. House is as described. powerful Home Theater; I found a Diana Krall DVD in the Bluray player and it sounds fantastic. All appliances working well. Well stocked with bath towels, paper towels and soap and shampoo. Laundry in garage has all the detergent, Breeze softener and clorox. Its a blessing that the air conditioning system working so well in this 95 degree heat. It actually cooled the house in less than half an hour. It appeared to me the house had been remodeled recently as most the fixtures and kitchen cabinets are fairly new. Refrigerator makes ice (another plus) and cold water dispenser. I found it has whole house water filtering system and softener which makes the water dispensed at the fridge quite drinkable.
For a 4 bedroom this house is a little on the small size so the living room and kitchen is connected. Lighting scheme is very good with ambiance lighting controls everywhere.
It is truly a modern house with "modern comforts" as advertised. However the management should prepare some kind of manual with clear instructions how to use all the sophisticated systems and amenities. In any case Ken the owner has been very responsive to our requests and came to help us with anything we need.

Not quite as I expected

  • 2 of 5
A few things I must say that are good and bad about this property. As the property is listed, this property is located to a lot of shops and stores so if you need to go out and pick up something, everything is conveniently close.

The downstairs living space had A/C but the second floor does not. I wished there were a ceiling fan or a standing fan available because at night the room was hot and stale. At night time, we had to keep the windows open to let a little bit of air in. The neighbors kept putting off fireworks and waking up our son, so that was a little frustrating. In the morning, be prepared to be woken up by neighbors yapping dog. As for the modern amenities, the surround sounds is great, but we had a difficult time figuring out how to get the TV and internet to work properly until we called the owner the second day and he had to reset the system. The bathrooms in my opinion were less than ok. If you're going to have modern showers with multiple sprays, let the pressure be better. At the end of the day, when I'm tired and want to relax and shower, I'd rather that it be a simple shower head with good pressure. Living room and kitchen area were small, but I could see that from the pictures. The carpet needed to be washed. The backyard was not as inviting as I'd hope. There were stacks of chairs and furniture on the side yard. I did enjoy seeing all the fruit trees although the season was not right so did not get a chance to enjoy the fruit.

As for the property manager, Ken was responsive in a timely manner, but not always answering all my questions. I emailed requesting for pictures of the 4th room and picture of the front of the house, he only sent me picture of the 4th room. When I asked if an early check in was available, he responded via email was to call when I'm an hour away. When I called, the house was not available until 3pm. Wished I had known that, I could have planned my day better. When I asked if there was an iron available, his response was "If you look hard enough, there should be one there. If not I could bring you one." We ended up buying one.

I wish I could rate this house a little higher but I was truly disappointed.

Owner's Response: 2-star rating is a “D” in a A to F grading system. It’s a rating dreadful to business owners. But is it fair and or accurate? Not in this case.
We are going to address each of the important issues raised by Ms Lan, the reviewer:
1) “No AC upstairs”: This house has a central HVAC. It cannot just deliver cool air to the downstairs and not the upstairs. We sent an HVAC tech to check it out. He found the rooms upstairs vent closed and temperature to be 78 degrees. After AC vents were opened the rooms temp went down to 72 deg.
2) Low water pressure: a plumber was dispatched and this is his report:
“install pressure gage at water entrance and at shower panel showed 83 psi and 81 psi, respectively. Water flow at shower heads in the 3 bathrooms observed to be good”. I suspect Ms. Lan didn’t know how to use the shower module correctly. (not turn the selector to the correct position)
3) TV and Internet:
I called Comcast to reset the equip. and everything working fine within an hour of their arrival. I never came back to the house, same day or next day as claimed by Ms Lan.
4) Early check-in: I explained to her that there was a tenant checking out right before her and the best I can to commit to 3 PM. Ms Lan agreed to be there at 3PM. They didn’t show up until after 4PM and Ms. Lan was not among them. Same thing happened at another house they rented. We waited for more than an hour at both.
5) “Front yard pic not provided”: it’s on the anchored photo of the house ad.
6) Iron: I offer to bring one if she could not find one.
I personally spent one night there: AC worked perfectly, all showers worked great, TV and HT works, Internet tested at 50 MB, found iron in closet, there is a dog yapping at 6:30 AM but inaudible with windows closed. No firework during my stay.
We take our business and our guests seriously and always address our guests’ concern immediately. Question is: being a person very vocal about her concerns why did she not call me about any of these problems It took me a while to figure it out:
Ms Lan and family rented two houses 3 nights, for a family coming here to attend a wedding. It turns out they used them for the wedding parties and receptions. The cleaners found more than 20 tall trash bags full of hundreds of beer and booze bottles, spoiled food, hard shoe marks on wood floor, missing items, cigarette butts everywhere.
Ms Lan didn't call about any of the complaints because she did not want me to see the unallowed use and the abuse of the house
