“Not at all what we expected”
Reviewed 20 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This place was far from the tropical paradise advertised. Upon arrival, we had to call Yvonne multiple times over a 30 minute period before finally getting an answer. In between calls and trying to figure out if we were in the right place, my husband ventured down the pathway alongside the house since there was a piece of paper hanging on the side of the house with a street number and arrows. Along the way he saw lots of leaves/debris, a broken window in the house and a shirtless man sleeping within the attached main dwelling. He hurried back to the car to continue calling. We were sure we were in the wrong spot. Yvonne finally answered and met us outside. We were in fact in the correct location. Once inside, we were overwhelmed by the bleach/moldy scent. The furniture/decor was actually pretty nice, but the bathroom was deplorable. There was no real flooring. It looked like it belonged in a janitor's closet. (see pics) We decided to give the place a chance despite our poor first impression. While standing before us, Yvonne decided to start folding the towels we were to use WITH HER TEETH!!! We were both appalled by this but again were trying to be polite. In asking her where we could go to eat, she told us the area was a little sketchy but overall safe. We decided to drive instead of walk (thank God) to find some food. The area was downright scary -not at all a place you'd want to be in much less walking. My husband is a good sized, well trained military man and was very uncomfortable being there. We headed back to the place and decided we'd stay the night and leave to find better accommodations the next morning even though we'd already paid in full for 2 nights. Throughout the night, we could hear every move they made upstairs. There was ZERO sound barrier. At one point I even heard them using the restroom then flushing. This place needs some major improvements before being rented again. The bathroom is in dire need of attention as well as the noise issue. I would not recommend this place to anyone. We travel extensively and have never left a bad review if that's any indication.

I don’t know what motivates these guests. The vast majority of this review is either a gross exaggeration or completely untrue. See what other guests say. To answer these people point by point:
1. There was no need to call me. I already told them where the apartment was and where to find a key.
2. There is no debris on the path. However, they were right about the leaves. They fall from trees. Trees are found in gardens
3. There is no broken window.
4. The mentioned neighbor is Michael. Many many guests have told me how helpful and wonderful he is and how much they enjoy talking with him. When the weather is hot, it is true that sometimes he goes without a shirt.(this is Southern California)
5. There are absolutely no bad smells in the apartment. I have verified this with a number of guests who have stayed both before and after them.
6. The bathroom is always clean. There is flooring.
7. I fold towels with my hands. Not my teeth.
8. The area is extremely safe. It has been listed by Los Angeles Magazine as one of the ten best places to live in Los Angeles.
9. I do mention noise from upstairs right in my description. However, most of my guests don’t notice it and if they do it doesn’t bother them.
10. I do flush the toilet. This is true.
11. The apartment is in very good condition. However, this is a 1920’s house, so it is not a modern hotel
12. Although these people obviously would not recommend this place to stay, please check out what other guests have to say.
