I recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

I strongly recommend this house; it's great for a group. This was my first time staying in a home listed on homeaway and I would do it again.

We cooked a bit and played some card games, but mostly used it as a place to sleep as we had close friends that lived nearby and we were in town for a wedding. The listing was accurate and there was even more included, like a pack & play and stroller and air mattress (although we didn't need those). It was a great location in WestLos and the traffic was relatively easy to get through for LA, although you will need a rental car or Uber to get around.

The landlord gave good customer service. She did recommend we check in late as there was a repair that needed done to curtains, but our party was arriving at different times of the day and we were out being tourists so we didn't have a problem with the repairs getting done. The house is in good shape, the many beds were comfortable, and the backyard area with the charcoal grill is a great plus.

The cleaning agent could take more care to wipe the ceiling fan blades as they were quite dusty, but we just used the air conditioner. The thermostat needs re-mounted as it is stuck with tape to the wall, and the batteries in a smoke detector need replaced. These items are minute and does not reduce my review score.

Thank you for being a good host!

Could have been better

  • 2 of 5

The layout of the house was nice and cozy. A four bedroom home with two baths. There was a total of six beds, so it was a good place for a lot of people. This place definitely had its problems though. We arrived fairly late for our first night there. The landlord was courteous and worked with our arrival schedule. We were all tired from driving that night and settled in to get some good rest for our eventful weekend. The next morning was one of the worst I experienced at any rental. The plumbing at the house was not in good shape. After people were using the toilets, the plumbing was clogged and what was in the toilet would come out of the shower drain. After people flushed when using the restroom and there was a very unpleasant sight and smell coming from both shower and drain. The contaminated water from the toilet was now coming out from the drain and shower head. Very unsanitary.. The people that didn't take a shower the night before ended up going to the closest gym to take a shower. Luckily we had memberships or else we would have had to pay. It made the morning a lot more stressful then is should have been. It took an extra hour or so of our day. After we all finally got our day started, we realized that the fridge was not working. All of the food and drinks in the fridge were below room temperature. We contacted the landlord and she did her best to fix the issues as soon as possible. After we left for the day, she replaced the fridge and the plumbing while we were gone. I didn't like the idea of leaving our stuff around while contractors came in and out of the house while we weren't there, but nothing went missing. Overall, the start of our vacation was rocky, but I give the landlord props for dealing with it and setting it as a priority so our second day went more smooth.

Great place near Dusneyland

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a quiet neighborhood about 20 minutes from Disneyland (without traffic). It is close to Los Angeles and Long Beach. A perfect destination for families that want to visit multiple sits while in California. Plenty of room for large families and the pet friendly option was key for us....enjoyed our stay and will be back when visting California.

Very nice area and nice house.

  • 4 of 5

Adriana was awesome to work with from the very beginning of the booking. She came by to greet us, however we were not there. She also called to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction. The bedrooms were great for our group. Loved the kitchen and dining/living room combo area and especially loved the screened in back porch. The neighborhood is very nice and well-lit. We felt very safe while there and would definitely rent again if we ever have the opportunity to visit the LA area. Thanks!

Just as you see

  • 5 of 5

I want to start by saying that the property itself is beautiful! Most times when I'm booking a hotel or a home to stay in I'm concerned that the photos do not look like the actual property itself or that the owner is trying to hid little imperfections. with this home everything is exactly as the pictures suggest. Me and four of my friends were visiting LA for my birthday weekend and this home was just perfect for 5 women getting ready equipped with two full bathrooms and four bedrooms and multiple beds providing space to move around. we didn't have to worry about having towels or dishes seeing as the home was stocked up with them. The kitchen size is moderate yet efficient. the dining/ living space is ideal and the home also has an outside patio-like area that was great for breakfast and planning our day. there was nothing wrong with the heating and cooling system so we were always as warm or cool as we wanted to be. the home has a full garage that also includes a washer and dryer. I ran into a small problem with the TV and as soon as I called Adrian she answered my call and talked me thru what we were doing wrong. Adriana also kept up with the times we were arriving and made sure we settled in well. mid- trip she called and made sure everything was going ok and also she checked up on us leaving even though the instructions that she leaves in the house are clear cut. as for the location itself I would recommend that if you are staying in this home but plan on visiting LA then you need a car however we were 10 minutes away from a Wal-Mart as well as clothing stores. and we were a 30min drive from the home to Hollywood Blvd. and just about everything else that we went. the surround homes were very quite and I only saw one of the other residents once so I can say overall the community is quite in itself. overall this was the perfect experience for me and made my birthday weekend with friends perfect and stress free. Book her home now!

P.s The lighting for selfies is awesome lol
