Listing was as described. Check was very easy as Alik provides a detailed welcome letter which provides all info needed in regards to the rental. Only complaint would be the lack of sheets available as we had to sleep on a bare mattress and pillows without the pillow case.Location is great and neighborhood is peaceful.
The apartment looked as it does in the photos. Could probably use a deep cleaning, as some stains were found on couch and bedding. Additionally, the fitted sheet didn't fit the pull-out sofa. Just wanted to stress that the parking spot is SUPER tiny, and with my normal sized car, I had to squeeze through one side after parking. Most cars will need to park on the street. Otherwise it was overall a nice place with a cute backyard patio.
Pros: Clean room, convenienty located (only a 5 minute drive to Gaslamp), spacious, full-kitchen and bathroom
Cons: (very) uncomfortable bed, worn sheets, room can get hot without AC, no iron as advertised, no batteries for air mattress pump
That's very weird comment given that the air mattress pumps we provide do not require batteries. They are plug-in.
And all units have irons. Sounds like one got stolen again. Wish they'd just let us knwo instead of say it here. Would have had another one dropped off same day.
Nice peaceful visit. All is as advertised and Alik is responsive and available. I would stay here again for sure. Thanks Alik!
The studio was just as it appears in the photo, the parking space is quite small so you may need to park on the street. The Kitchen was ok, could use a frying pan and a few other cooking items but it worked for us. The area was within easy driving distance to everything and had convenient stores close. The neighborhood was not as quiet as I expected. the Firestation is close so you could hear the truck sirens and the neighbors were a bit loud and smoked under our window with the fan so we had to close it.
The apartment is okay.
When we arrived we had no problems getting in. The studio is okay for two. It looked clean but I would recommend a deep cleaning of some items such as couch or carpet, since they look a bit used and you have to sleep on it.
It got really hot in the house, 2 fans were okay though. One of the fans is laying on the floor and it was impossible to watch TV because of the noise. The Toilet has a defect and runs constantly if you dont fix it yourself. I didnt receive the FAQ email so I had to send textmsgs to Alik kindly asking for the wifi password. But he told me to look for a free wifi spot somewhere to look up the FAQ email (which I didnt receive) instead of simply providing me with the password.
Location is great.
