Burrd L. Some very minor complaints:
• Only 1 toilet. Fine for 3 guys, but may be an issue if there’s a lot of ladies/girls.
• From street parking to front door is a little dim at night. A motion triggered floodlight would have helped.
• Property management was good, but a bit slow to respond, and lease contract was confusing. Gave wrong Wifi password.

Many good points:
• Perfect scores on my 3 critical points for any accommodations: cleanliness and hygiene, comfy bed, strong shower.
• All electronics, electrical appliances, and fitting work correctly. Nothing broken or faulty.
• Good towels.
• Use of electronics which were appropriate, helpful and unobtrusive. A tablet at entrance providing all essential info. No problem using the Nest thermostat even though it was the first time I’ve used one. Easy to use electronic lock for front door. USB ports in all rooms for charging phones/devices.
• Spacious living and dining areas.
• Tastefully furnished, very homely, nothing over the top. Even my boss did not complain about his very feminine room.
• Fully equipped kitchen. Fridge, stove, oven, microwave, coffee maker, pots, cutlery, utensils etc. Feels like grandma’s kitchen.
• Very comfy sofas to watch TV on, very nice blankets too.
• Good location on a quiet residential area, walking distance shops and quick access to major roads.
• Huge backyard with multiple seating. Beautiful trees, including fruiting citrus. Had freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juice for breakfast.
• Large TV and wide selection of channels. Even got to watch Liverpool match live!
• Wifi included, good internet speed – no problem with multiple simultaneous video calls.
• Had privilege of meeting owner, who had initially kept her distance to respect our privacy. Sincere and wonderful person,

Kim D. This property is managed by a property manager, not the owner. The owner lives in the guest house in the backyard. When we arrived, the owner was not aware of our reservation so she had been using the house. She was very apologetic and cleaned the house up. The property manager did offer to have house cleaners come out to the house. The bathroom has a deep soaking tub. We were very comfortable in the house. The owner was great to interact with and very helpful if we needed anything.The neighborhood it is in is very quiet except for the jets you hear from 7 am to 10 pm taking off and landing at the nearby Van Nuys airport. There is a large park nearby. It is easy to access the freeway from the house. The jacuzzi is very large and great to relax in. The yard is kept up well,there are lots of seating areas, and we enjoyed watching the many birds and squirrels in the morning. The kitchen has all the basics. The ice machine in the freezer works, but ice does not come out of the door of the freezer. You are about 40 minutes to the west of the coast and the same amount of time to LA.
