Must leave kitchen as clean as they found it. Must not leave anything in sink, everything must be cleaned and put back where found. All surfaces wiped down. Bathroom is shared if we have other guests.But very very rarely are both rooms booked at the same time. The showerhead needs to be moved around to cover various heights. It also takes longer heat up

The neighborhood was safe and quiet, the family was amazing! Two of the best and funniest people we've ever met! They helped us in every way they could, we loved every single moment of our journey. The room is cozy and comfortable, the bathroom is personal and really clean. Five stars!
Kris and Rogers room in their home was perfect for our needs-- a quiet place to sleep and a private shower/bathroom after long days. They are such a friendly couple, full of life and sense of adventure. Would definitely recommend to others. Only thing to note: if you over six feet tall, the shower head is quite low. Thanks for opening your home to us, Kris and Roger!
Kris is super nice! The room is really cozy and the bed is just so comfortable. Thank you Kris!
I have stayed in several places in the course of my work but Kris's place is extremely different. The house is fantastic, clean, ideal, safe and classy. Her(Kris) hospitality is beyond my imagination , the support of the husband-Rogers is splendid. The couple are my new family friends I cant forget in hurry. I am therefore imploring all the members of AIRBNB to help me send a THANK YOU message to this wonderful couple. I cant wait to visit again and again. I love you Kris, I love you Rogers...All the best.
Kris and Rodger are juste awesome ! I came from France with a friend and stay at their house during a week. They help us a lot and explain us many thinks and tips. It was really helpful.
They are very friendly and it was a pleasure to be at their house !
Kris is a very nice hostess. Her place is decent and clean, safe and quiet. I highly recommend this place!
Kris, Roger and Zack were fantastic for our first airbnb experience. It was also our first time exploring the LA area. We stayed 2 nights, they were very warm and easy going about our coming and going as we would leave early am and get back late which wasn't a problem. Bed and bath were clean and great location to get to Long Beach, Newport Beach, Anaheim, etc. They recommended great places for us to see along the way too. If we come back we would definitely stay again!
