We loved staying at this Zensational home!
Lucas was very accommodating.
The house fit 8 of us ( 4 kids and 4 adults) very comfortably!
We loved the neighborhood and tried out a whole bunch of restaurants!
We also loved the proximity to balboa park and enjoyed big, hike walks into the park daily.
Very cool house in a great area, we were all happy to be there and really enjoyed our stay. Thanks Lucas
Great neighborhood (South Park) and home for 10-dude bachelor party. Lucas was very welcoming, and made the transition from payment to greeting smooth.
House has had enough space for 10 guys - great accomplishment in itself. Lucas brought us beers and groceries, let us use his basically all amenities (laundry, towels, dishes, dishwasher, Apple TV, etc). Very nice back patio to relax in the sun as well.
He even let us stay an hour later than expected during checkout. Nice guy, nice place.
If you are not 100% on the house, check out some of the local neighborhood spots. Great place!
Beautiful House! Had an overall wonderful experience. Clean and as described. Great big dining room and living room to hang out in and nice quiet patio in the back! Lucas was wonderful and friendly.
We loved the location. No problems. Great area for good and beer. Go seahawks!!
Lucas made the experience easy with an email prior to the trip with directions, how to contact him to pick up the keys, and what to expect in and around the home. The house is very spacious with more than enough beds for a large group. Some beds are located in walk-in closets. There are lots of artwork and the kitchen and bathrooms have all the amenities you will need. Lucas even stocked up fruits and snacks to ensure we weren't left hungry.
Neighborhood is safe and quiet, except for planes you may hear due to airport flight path over the house. It didn't bother our rest but just FYI. It is a nice walking distance to all the good eats in South Park and conveniently located close to highways. My family and I will definitely consider this Zensational home again in the future.
AIRPLANES! AIRPLANES! AIRPLANES! Buddahs, skulls, crosses, pictures of naked ladies, old small couch with like 20 throw pillows! We couldn't even hear the movie we were watching when the planes would fly overhead. Really annoying. The apple TV was not working, we were on the phone for 30 minutes with Lucas and customer service trouble shooting. The next day Lucas finally came over to try and figure it out but couldn't, after 20 min. he left with it and came back later that night with the updated one. Tried to use our bedroom a/c unit upstairs 3 times and each time it tripped the electricity and we went into black out. When I went to bed my pillow case had a super strong smell of men's cologne.....did the sheets get changed? gross!Just more annoyance. We have stayed in many Air bnb places and when a problem is presented the host is very apologetic.....bottle of wine or a pizza delivered for dinner......not so much in this instance. Location is nothing, you have to drive everywhere. There is a small restaurant, mini market, gym 2 blocks away. The house was built in 1914 so it has a very small living room, uncomfortable furniture, not at all making the most of the small space. Upstairs has pretty bedding, bathroom and paint, no a/c in the house. Could not tell if we were in the ghetto or an eclectic neighborhood, yard looked really trashy. Would not stay here again.
Yes, I should of sent over a Pizza as that makes everybody happy... and I did apoligize, yet even more I took immediate action and communicated constantly, to figure out the problem, yet when you want your NETFLIX NOW-WOW! there's plenty of photos on line and I tell people if you don't like the art take it down, yet there's nothing distateful! (only one person in 3 years has said anything.) Yes the Apple TV/Netflix went down. Unfortunately when somebody spends so much time with the TV is when it goes out. (Poor communication from previous guests doesn't help) I'm sorry if Apple and Netflix wouldn't agree on whom was to blame. I was on the phone immediately to fix the problem. I was pretty busy that weekend, yet took it to Apple on their busy weekend and had the box replaced. I have plenty of DVD's and 1000 other channels plus ON DEMAND/Movies from all the other stations to keep everyone busy/happy for quite awhile. WIFI, books, computers are available as a back up. (They were pretty obsessed with Netflix!) BTW Lisa requested, PacknPlay, Computer, Blender, Early Check in, etc and I obliged as I try to have all the extras, family may need. She was very intense from the start and even left her babies diapers to smell up the house, (I ask people to dispose of diapers outside as they accumulate rapidly) Never heard about AC issues, as it was a hot weekend, yet my house is 200 amps wired to handle anything. There's AC in the bedrooms and downstairs, plus plenty of fans. My house is cleaned professionally every booking, and sheets are cleaned/changed whether or not used. Small restaurant? How big do you need? There's actually 3 restuarants nearby as 4th one is coming, As well as An Organic market, European Market, Mexican Market, Yoga studio and Gym! Plus art studios etc. Old Small Couch? It's the newest furniture in the house, yet trashed by kids and babies. I don't think she understands how much a house takes a beating from kids. My screen was broken on the front door, & hand prints everywhere! Plus smelly diapers everywhere.
The living room is set up for entertainment/viewing computing, (it seats 12) lounging and even sleeping if you'd like, yet not condusive for kids to run around in. Not sure on comfortable furniture as noone as ever said anything on that guests, friends, etc!!!! And it's all newer modern durable pieces! Many Vaca rentals don't even allow kids and babies because of that. There is a deck and a yard that I'm still working on expanding yet plenty of room for kids to play and they did. This is a popular, central, safe, eclectic, historical, family neighborhood. (My yard was being converted to zeroscape and was in the middle of being completed. ) Yet that should'nt have diminished their stay. I don't know if Lisa would ever been happy as she seem to diminish everything as this is my first unhappy guests, yet I will send her a netflix gift certificate. As most hotels don't even have that service!
