I am very quite, friendly and humble person. I can assure you that you will feel like home and i will try my best to make your experience memorable.
I feel that the house could have been cleaner. There were crumbs on the counter and a dirty tray in the oven. For a $125 non-refundable cleaning fee the house should be spotless. We left the kitchen cleaner than when we got there. The beds were old and uncomfortable, the linens were old also. On the plus side, The owner was very nice and accommodating. The yard was very nice, plenty of room for a large gathering, plenty of sitting inside and out.
The property is spacious, the surrounding is nice and peaceful and the owner is quick and responsive to the queries. But the property cleanliness required improvement.
After reading the Sept. 2015 review about the cleanliness of the home, I was a little hesitant. The carpets were clean in November and there was no longer a microwave in the master bathroom counter. The drawers and cupboards continued to have clutter in many of them and some of the furniture was in need of repair. Hand towels and tea towels were few, so we donated a few kitchen dish towels.
However, our family had a delightful time cooking our Thanksgiving meal in the huge kitchen with double ovens, large roasters, pie plates, and pretty bowls to make our holiday meal possible and festive. The grandchildren LOVED the Alhambra water dispenser and the many rooms to explore and play in. The refrigerator did have lots of condiments left from previous guests, however, was easily rearranged and we were able to store food for 15 people for 3 days inside of the spacious compartments. There was lots of counter and prep space for 6 people cooking at the same time. The family members really appreciated the amount of the comfortable furniture and the different rooms to hold many concurrent conversations.
The backyard has the pool (too cold to use in November), but our grandchildren and dogs loved the large grassy area for running, throwing balls, and enjoying the beautiful fresh air. The front yard was missing lighting by the steps and I did almost trip, but there was plenty of parking available in the large driveway and in the street.
The location was wonderful with Whole Foods just a few blocks away and a major shopping center for Black Friday deals just a few blocks more.
The owner was helpful and easy to reach—but he would be better served with a new--more efficient housekeeping service.
Although this property was large and had a great layout that could accommodate my family, I was embarrassed by the condition of the inside of home. Carpets were filthy with huge stains that were simply covered up by throw rugs. There was "stuff" everywhere in closets and dressers-a lot of junk and clutter. Kitchen had pantry which included opened bottles of alcohol and refrigerator had bottles of dressings, juice and leftovets. Master bath had an old microwave and mini fridge (not plugged in) on sink counter top. Dirty bathroom shower-dust everywhere. This property should be professionally cleaned from top to bottom. The house is dated but wouldn't be bad if it was clean. I am a little grossed out by those carpets, but what can you do once you are there and paid? Pictures on site do not reflect property. There is NO lighting on front steps either - glad no one fell. One last thing. Kashan tells me that there is a neighbor next door who complains about noise. Apparently they don't get along. So here we have this great outside backyard with pool and are afraid to cause too much noise and irritate neighbor. It's called vacation.
