Response from Ram And Andre:

Hi Holly,
The good point you bring up is that this house is not for those that want a high end modern hotel or a modern suburban house. This is a unique and very special home. If you know this area of LA and have been to our home you will understand. This special feeling and the fact that we are very accommodating hosts are why most of our reviews are 5 stars.
-Your toddler ripped a batik curtain and not a sheet. We fixed it and didn't feel like asking for any money even though its a unique piece and would be hard to replace.
- Our house is on an alley which is a great thing. There is no traffic and its very quiet. We love that way and many many others do as well. In this area it's common to have residences that are on alleys and its not considered bad its often considered a good way to avoid more exposure to LA traffic. The house next door on the alley is worth a couple million at least...
-My "very Venice" style has found my designs in periodicals from The New York Times to Italian Architectural Digest 25th Anniversary Edition. The house is weathered appropriately for being almost 100 years old and it's not for lack of care its the beauty of age which is quite rare in Southern California.
-The toilet worked fine before you arrived and for 2 days after your arrival. My guess is your toddler clogged the toilet using too much TP as they often do and I instructed you with a simple solution that worked easily when you called me on a holiday in the evening. I've never had any problem with the toilet before.
-All of the "negative" things you wrote about are all in our listing description. As you said we did not misrepresented the house. We are very happy with the house and proud to share it. The only thing I'm not proud of is that I've never changed the snapshot pics from when the listing was first put up to more professional ones.

Holly I'm sorry if it wasn't the perfect fit for you but the number of stars, in my opinion, should not be based on your ability to properly read our listing. If super high speed internet, apple TV, a large flat screen, and a great stereo aren't enough and you need cable, or a microwave then you must rent elsewhere. You lower my ratings by giving me 3 stars. I delivered everything I promised and more. I'm not sure you understand how ratings work but by most peoples standards the way you describe my home and the kind service I provided I would get a 4 or more likely 5 star review. In the end I wish you the best for 2015 and I appreciate what you have written because it gives me the opportunity to highlight some of the aspects that I and many others like best about the house.
