Great little get away and the heart of the City
This place is really cute and loved the backyard. it has two entrances if you have a car and you park it in the garage then this is perfect cause your bedroom door is right there. You can also enter through the backyard by coming into the yard from the front of the building using the code that will be provided to you to open the locked gate and walking around the back to the living area door.
The TV is an internet only which is fine with me cause I use the Amazon Stick that I carry with me and it connects to the TV to provide you with real-time local channels, movie, Netflix, Hulu etc.. My only issue was the spray paint smell and the gentlemen working on his Van in garage during the day so when i got back at night the smell lingered in the garage but not in the unit. Normal noise from upstairs walking and neighbors, but hey this is the city, nothing really to complain about. Overall great place to stay if you're looking to be within walking distance of restaurants, movies, the beach, and shopping.
If I knew I had a glass door of the garage attached to my room I'll never would choose that place, I had smell of car oil all the time in my room, also the mattress was full of urine spots and the mattress cover had dried grass, the kitchen sink was smelling into my room.
Very walkable, terrible bed, excellent kitchen, great for the dog.
Super cute, pretty small, fun gas heater. Walk south, not north for safety. Loved the outdoor back patio. It’s also enclosed, great for the pup. Kitchen had all the right stuff to cook well. Decor is trendy and nice. The bed needs to be replaced. Please, consider purchasing a Layla. We have one at home and it’s just fine. Had to give a 3 b/c of the bed. The TV is an issue. I suggest the owner log into Hulu, Netflix and Amazon with their own subscription - ought to be included in the rental. Nice towels. And, the garage is essential for the area. A little bit of noise from upstairs neighbor just walking on their floor. For us it was great, except for the unfortunate bed.
Wow, I LOVE that bed! I sleep around a lot (because I have a lot of props) and that is one of my favorite--and I've never had a complaint with that bed. I think it is just a matter of personal preference. With respect to the TV---it is a smart TV and while there is no cable there is indeed all of the apps. that you mentioned and I do have netflix and pandora accts that can/should be used. But I think we need to include those passwords in the property guide in the event that the app closes and needs a new log in. Thank you very much for the insights and positive comments. It really is an awesome site.
This is a terrific property. Very comfortable, well decorated and well supplied and soooo close to everything within walking distance of beach, restaurants, shopping. And a garage if needed. Great outdoor space to enjoy morning coffee or evening cocktail. Mike was terrific host. Available to meet all our needs. Highly recommend. TOM and michele
modern decor, and reasonable price - pet friendly. No A/C, no cable or satellite TV, no bathtub
This is just as I expected based on the pictures and the other reviews. that is why I gave it a 4 out of 5. I think it could be improved: One other reviewer mentioned it was too hot and there is no air conditioning. We stayed over Labor Day Weekend and it was too hot - 80 degrees in the bedroom, so I can only imagine how hot it was in mid-July! Owner should at least consider a window or compact A/C unit for the bedroom. There is only one window in the bedroom - so it is hard to get ventilation. We had to leave the window open overnight due to the heat and I was kept up because of police sirens and motorcycle noise. A/C would eliminate that issue though. Owner could provide detailed instructions for how to work the "smart TV" which, luckily, our daughter's friend was able to figure out for us and connected her Amazon account to so they could watch a movie. We had our dog with us and I ended up picking up after the upstairs neighbor's dog too since I was scared to have it reported I didn't pick up after our dog - so I picked up about 4 of their dog's poops! Then we left the garage door open for a few minutes when we were about to leave and had a knock on the door because the upstairs neighbors have bikes in there - so that is a valid concern on their part - it is not the best neighborhood and so it is 1) nice that you can secure your car in a garage, and 2) important to keep the garage door shut! The neighbors then complained because we had a small bag of trash in the garage (just a small bag from our car garbage - nothing smelly) - well - we didn't know where the trash bin was and the neighbors didn't even tell us - but I found it myself on the left side of the house. So maybe the location for waste disposal could also be mentioned on the information sheet that is left for the renters on the table. There is a shower but no bathtub - so if you are traveling with very young children it might be difficult - also the bathroom has a narrow doorway so this is not an accessible place to stay. It is not easy to have people over because there isn't really a front door - you enter through the garage and then into the bedroom. Overall, we got out of the stay what we wanted- a place to stay with our daughter and her friend and to bring our dog and take him to Rosie's Dog Beach just a few minutes away - which was fabulous. We walked to The Breakfast Bar around the corner which was good and we drove to places in LA. A convenient location.
Not close to preferred beaches. There is a beach close-by, but a lot of homeless people present. Very hot in the summer time and this apartment is not air conditioned. Great parking arrangements! Very nicely remodeled, shared condo (downstairs unit). Shirley the maintenance lady is phenomenal, loved her! Very close to restaurants and supermarket.
