Better places to stay for the money
The house was clean and convenient to stores and had a very nice outside sitting area with great views of the Catalinas. However the tap water was rusty and we didn't trust it to drink. It had a huge nice bathroom, but the shower water pressure was weak. They need better TV service, was antenna only, so we got a bunch of Mexican channels, the limited English channels had intermittent reception.
Our property is on well water and there is still one old pipe that needs to be dug out and replaced. That is why the water may have slightly rusted color at the beginning but once you let it run it clears.
The shower head has been replaced in the shower to give better water pressure.
We only offer antenna channels. The television needs to refresh channels to get best reception for local American channels. It is easily done with a controller. If I knew there was a problem, I would have fixed it right away. At this moment the TV has all local channels working properly.
Pros: Good central location, very clean, beautiful views, sufficient plates, mugs, utensils, coffee pot. They also accommodated our dog (crated at night, with us during the day) willingly.Cons: Tough turn to driveway (particularly in the dark), bad water, bad water pressure, bad bed, non functional kitchen (in part because of the water/water pressure). Do I want my money back? No. Would I stay there again? Probably not.
Wonderfully beautiful and peaceful
This is a two-story apartment, attached to a large house (unoccupied during our stay). The grounds are a bit neglected, but this didn't interfere with our stay. There's also a small apartment behind the garage that was rented during part of our stay, but we rarely saw the occupants. This was a great location, on top of a hill surrounded by desert, with great views of the Catalina Mountains but minutes from hiking, shopping. The kitchen is well equipped, but there's very little counter space, so meal preparation is challenging. We lived outside under the covered patio during the day--ate all our meals at the picnic table there, and read in the comfortable chairs provided. We didn't use the dining area, with it's somewhat formal dining room table. We loved the upstairs, very comfortable chairs, and bed. We don't watch much TV so the limited channel offerings didn't bother us. There is a shelf of dvd's to watch. We appreciated the electric shutters that allowed us to control the light so the early morning sun didn't wake us too soon. The small desk next to the large picture window looking out to the mountains, was a convenient place to work and stay in touch with family. Very comfortable bed, and very quiet at night.
The owner is struggling to remove a colony of bees from the roof over the bathroom, so we had the daily task of picking up dying or dead bees in the bathroom and kitchen. We found the owner to be very responsive to our questions.
Yes we had bees but they have been completely removed.
Exceeded our expectations
The owners are prompt in responding and everything went smoothly from the initial contact to the departure . This property is private, though there is another rental on the grounds. We felt like we had the place to ourselves and enjoyed the porch and swing in the evenings. Everything was very clean. The linens , towels and kitchen supplies were a high quality . We had everything we needed. Very much enjoyed out time here .
