charming cottage, but barking dogs a real problem
Submitted: November 9, 2012

This cottage is charming and clean. It is well kept and has a nice patio and landscaping. The stairs to and from the cottage are very steep. There is a small kitchen, no dishwasher, a full size bed, sofa bed in the living room. Bathroom is in the bedroom.
The major problem with our visit was barking dogs behind the property. They barked all night and during the day while we were there. Not sure if it is an ongoing problem, but for us it was..not much sleep.
Owner's Response: It is tremendously helpful for us and for future travelers to have thorough and honest reviews. If a guest contacts us during their stay to ask for help, they will always receive an immediate in-person response and a remedy to the situation, even if it means alternative lodging. In this case, we were not alerted to the issue until after the guests' departure, but upon receiving the review, we immediately contacted our neighbor and found they had an unusual circumstance with their dogs during the nights of our guests' stay. We then spent every night at the cottage for a week to monitor the situation, and were relieved to find it peaceful, comfortable, and quiet. For our guest who had an unpleasant stay, we have apologized and offered a discounted rate at another property nearby for future visits to LA.
