Hi Kelsey, Thank you so much for staying at my place and for the lovely review. There is an AC unit in the living room and as you stated LA apts don't typically have central air. Sorry for the inconvenience you're visiting in a heat wave here in LA, it's not usually this hot.
Thanks for the review and staying at my place. I appreciate it. Sorry to hear about the allergies (which was never brought to my attention by you before booking or after booking) however the cat has not been in the apt for months and cleaning between guests which is every 2-3 days (washing sheets, duvets, towels, vacuuming, dusting, mopping, etc) it would be highly unusual to have any cat hair left in the apt. My guess is that the scratch pole in the balcony gave the realization of 'a cat must have lived here' and that realization possibly triggered the allergies. However, there are no cats around and I've had no complains from other guests.
I'm truly sorry that you spend your holiday with allergy med. That is not good. Next time please ask airbnb hots prior to booking in regards to pets/cats, since you're very allergic.
