"My parents and I stayed here for 11 days so I could have major surgery at USC, and it worked wonderfully for us. The easy flow between rooms allowed me to move around well with a walker, but the layout also afforded plenty of privacy -- helpful since my parents are divorced! My mother valued the en suite bathroom in the back (white) bedroom, and my father liked being able to tuck away peacefully in the front (rose) bedroom. I stayed in the middle (sage) bedroom, giving me easy access to both of them, and to both bathrooms. (Note that there's a door directly from the middle bedroom to the back bedroom, so there's not total privacy between those two rooms.) The kitchen is spacious and easy to work in, and there's a little spot to eat in there as well as a breakfast nook, a huge dining/working table, and an outdoor table with an umbrella. We made heavy use of the washer/dryer in the garage and the TV with Netflix, and we took a lot of walks around the quiet, friendly neighborhood. Because of my condition, we didn't see many sights, but we did love the Huntington Botanical Gardens. I've been to plenty of gardens, and the Huntington is the most magnificent I've seen -- by far!
Everything was as described, and Kathleen was helpful and communicative before, during, and after. And she was completely lovely and forgiving about the fact that we accidentally broke her coffee pot!"
