Wir waren im Mai 2015 bei Marie. Parkplätze vor dem Haus waren wie beschrieben vorhanden. Die Wohngegend ist super. Zwar braucht man in LA für alles ein Auto, aber einige Fast-Food-Läden und ein sehr guter Supermarkt sind zu Fuß zu erreichen.
Die Nutzung von Waschmaschine und Trockner war für uns ein großer Vorteil, da LA eine Zwischenstation war. Auch wenn die Fotos des Poolhauses, in dem wir gewohnt haben, einen größeren Eindruck vermittelten, so war der Platz für zwei Personen ausreichend.
Unser Eindruck von der Unterkunft war allerdings bei der Ankunft weniger positiv. Das Poolhaus hatte einen intensiven unangenehmen Geruch (evtl. Chlor?), den wir nur mit Duftkerzen und längerem Lüften los wurden. Leider war das W-Lan Passwort falsch und da am ersten Tag niemand ausser dem Babysitter zu Hause war, konnten wir auch nicht nachfragen.
Die kleine Küchenzeile war mit einem Gasofen/-herd, Mikrowelle, Kühlschrank m. Gefrierfach, Besteck und Geschirr ordentlich ausgestattet. Leider funktionierte der Gasherd nicht, wurde aber auf Anfrage am nächsten Tag wieder in Stand gesetzt.
Bei genauerer Betrachtung fiel uns auf, dass das Mobiliar teilweise schon sehr abgewohnt ist (kaputte Lampen, defekter Mülleimer, Handtuchhalter fällt aus der Wand etc.). Über diese Kleinigkeiten konnten wir noch hinwegsehen. Was wir nicht so schön fanden war, dass vieles eingestaubt und nicht gereinigt war (Kaffemaschine dreckig, Haare auf der Toilettenbrille, etc.).
Auch wenn das Zimmer nur als kurze Unterkunft gedacht ist, wünscht man sich als Gast schon, dass es sauber ist. Immerhin würden wir es mit Kosten in Höhe von 100 Euro / Nacht nicht gerade als günstig bezeichnen und somit wäre eine Grundreinigung das Mindeste, was man erwarten könnte.
Das Bett ist für zwei Personen von der Größe her in Ordnung, auch wenn die Matratze ihre besten Zeiten wohl schon hinter sich hat und sehr hart ist. Auch würden wir nicht empfehlen, die Kissenbezüge abzuziehen, da eine Reinigung der Kissen auch von Nöten wäre.
Da das Poolhaus selbst nicht gedämmt ist und keine Heizung hat, waren wir für den zur Verfügung gestellten Heizlüfter dankbar. Leider war es bei unserem Aufenthalt nicht so warm wie erwartet.
Im Poolhaus selbst nahmen wir ein sehr lautes Brummen wahr, das den Schlaf negativ beeinträchtigte. Es stellte sich heraus, dass es der Filter des Whirlpools war, der dann auch umgehend abgeschaltet wurde. Leider war dadurch der Whirlpool sehr schmutzig, als wir diesen nutzen wollten. Aber der Hausherr hat dieses Problem auf Anfrage behoben. Leider konnten wir den Whirlpool dann erst nutzen, nachdem das Kind des Hauses ihn auf Aufforderung verlassen hat und es war uns sehr unangenehm danach die Babysitterin aufzufordern, dass sie und die Kinder uns ein wenig Privatsphäre lassen.
Fazit: Wir wollen den Aufenthalt bei Marie - die einen sehr freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Eindruck machte - nicht schlecht reden, aber für den Preis war uns der Aufenthalt dies im Nachhinein nicht wert.
I am sorry that your stay did not make you happy. I would recommend that your next stay to say something so that you can give the host a chance to correct things. We are here for that.
I feel that from the moment that I did not order something online for you, that you were not happy with us. We normally do not order things for guest, and especially not on our card before you actually give us money. It was a pretty expensive thing you wanted, almost $200.
I am going to address the issues as much as I can here. As to the wireless password, at least someone is here to help at all times if our guests need something. Unfortunately I was at work and have to work like everyone else. When I am at work, there is always someone here to take care of our children. Anything you needed, we were here to help you with.
The foul smell that you noticed was the pilot light on the stove that had gone out. It was easy to fix, just by lighting it.
In terms of things breaking, it happens after many people stay here and and we constantly keep updating things. After you had stayed here we actually did update pretty much everything in the house.
You are mentioning that things were not so cleaned. That is a surprise to me as to our guests are super happy with how clean it is. I have used a new cleaning lady and these things are easily fixed by mentioning things on arrival. I do not go in to check every time as I try to after they have cleaned. I will talk to her or get a new cleaning lady.
I feel that you wanted to mention something in regards to pretty much everything and I am happy that you do. I always ask everyone what we can do better and we do listen to our guests and update our things as they do get used after a while. In regards to the bed, I have not had anyone complain about it. People say it is the opposite, that they can sleep very well in there.
The sound that you heard was the filter of the pool, we can set it during the day at some time. Again no-one has said anything so we have not had to change it.
There is no way to please everyone but we try to. I feel that from the moment you arrived, you were not happy. We would have been happy to try to find you something different if this place did not suit your needs.
We stay with my family, 2 adults and 2 kids (5 and 8 years old). I can feel this place and neighbor is quite safe as host mentioned. My kids really enjoyed to play in back yard where is nice place for kids. We can feel host's kind hospitality during stay.
We had a great time staying at Marie's place. The home was clean, comfortable and great for the kids which is what we were looking for. We would definitely stay here again. Marie and her family were very sweet and she even has a massage room. My husband was able to get a massage and said she was amazing so would definitely recommend that as well. If you are looking for a clean cozy place for you and the kids then this place is great. The playground was a great addition and the neighborhood is very nice! We are family of 5, our girls are 6, 3 and 9 months, and we were very comfortable. Marie's son is also very friendly and our girls had a lot of fun playing with him. There was plenty of parking and the space was very private. We had breakfast outside every morning which was also very nice.
This was my first time booking with Airbnb and it was a great experience. The location is perfect - easy to get to most locations, but out of the noise of the city. I felt very safe in the neighborhood, and parking was a breeze. Marie was very welcoming, and quick to answer questions. The kitchen was great, as we were looking to save a little money and bought some breakfast items at the nearby Trader Joe's. We weren't around much, but it was a good landing spot at the end of our long days.
This was our first time trying Airbnb, and I have to say it was perfect. We arrived late, left early and did not have a chance to interact with Marie, but everything was there as promised. The description of the bungalow was accurate, the location was great for us. Pretty centrally located to where we wanted to go, easy to get to, and a pleasant experience.
Thank you so much Thor for thinking it was easy for you to check in and check out. This is what we would like guests to experience. We are here to help if needed or leave you alone completely if you prefer as well.
Please keep us in mind for next time you are in town. :)
The space is safe, quiet, clean and has tons of positive energy. Hostess was kind, warm, and communicative. She even lent me her hair dryer when I forgot mine. It was perfect for my sister and I, we were supposed to have a 1 yr old with us (she ended up staying home), but it would have been perfect for a small family too!
