Other Things to Note
At no time should food be left open in the kitchen, as there is a tropical climate with tropical conditions in the back garden, the smell of open food can attract a variety of unwelcome visitors!!
Due to the location of this house and the beautiful nature surrounding it, bugs can sneak in if you aren't careful. Pleas be sure to put away all food and beverages promptly!
I trust the guest will treat it with the love and respect it deserves and report any problems or breakages to me ASAP. No smoking in the bedrooms or bathrooms.
Additionally, 72 hours notice must be given, before desired move-in-date, in order to ensure owner adequate time to vacate.
Nona was very accommodating last minute given the circumstances that she was out of the country. The pictures of her home do not match certain aspects of her home in person, especially the pool. Also, the second bed listed is a pullout sofa (which had 2 live spiders on the pillow upon arrival)
Upon arrival the pool was pitch black and covered with moss. I made it clear to Nonna that the pool was our primary reason for choosing her place. She called the pool guy and when he came and saw the mess he told me Nonna was behind on payments and until it was caught up he did not want to put any extra effort in the pool. I immediately texted Nonna and that is where all conversations ended. She did not reply at all during the rest of my stay.
Other negatives were the "old lady" smell, lack of toilet paper, paper towels, soap, dirty countertops and the microwave that only works if you stand next to it and hold the door close. In addition, the stove is very outdated. It requires you to manually strike a match every time you use it.
had communicated that I was excited to use the pool during my stay, and when I arrived, the pool was very dirty and unable to be swam in. Nona was out of the country for a few months and apparently the help she hired to upkeep the property wasn't doing their job, such as cleaning the pool, cleaning dust, dirt and cob webs. I also found that instead of there being two beds, there was 1 bed and an uncomfortable pull out sofa that had spider webs in it. I would hope this review is a lesson learned that things should be as the pictures represent.
Nona is a great host
we had a great time in this lovely house
I can highly recommend this location for anybody who is looking at a quiet and comfortable home to enjoy their trip in Los Angeles.
Nona from the first day of sign up was in contact with me and always checked in to make sure all was great. Her house couldn't be more perfect for a vacation in LA. Really best any hotel experience I could have imagined. Beautiful house, great place, and 110% recommend. Best as always and thanks Nona!
Can't say enough great things about Nona's place. With 4 girls, it's always a challenge to find a hotel room big enough with 2 bathrooms without breaking the bank. I decided to go another route and find something more comfortable. When I saw Nona's place, it was exactly what I was looking for. Our stay here was amazing. It beats any hotel room. The location was perfect, the house is spacious, beautiful and we felt right at home the minute walked in. Also, being the animal lover I am, I immediately fell in love with Nona's cat, Mango. He definitely made us feel welcomed! Miss him already and would recommend this place to everyone!
Nona's house suit her perfectly, full of personality and charm.
Unfortunately a small problem has forced us to shorten our stay there. Without it, we would be stay until the end. Nona was very comprehensive and did her max to help us.
