Nice stay in a busy city
We are from Germany and can compare a holiday condo from Orlando and do that with this one in Los Angeles, the one in Orlando was great, new and inside a gated community with parking lot and perfect condition. This condo is an old wooden town house from the 30th but not directly on the street, the landowner George lives directly in front of the street, there is another wooden house. It is not possible to park your car on the property, so you have to search a parking lot on a street near by, if you come back at night, it can be very difficult to find one. On Tuesday and Wednesday you need to watch for cleaning vehicles, else you get a ticket, like us (over 70$, which you can pay online). The condo itself is locked by a key-less entrance, which was not working from time to time, it means, the door was not closing shot all the time, you had to force the door to close right. The condo inside was very nice at the first view, but it come to its ages, that means, many old machines all around, air condition is super loud and needs maintenance (filter), old washing machine and dryer (who takes ages to finish drying), old oven who smells strong and is quiet insecure because its age, and sticky dirt all over the kitchen, so the cleaning fee has to be used much more better. We had a gas problem, where it smells like gas strongly, we told George and he tried to fix it. The problem was the water heater (boiler) and a broken water pipe, where the water was extincting the gas flame. This was heavily insecure (I saw a lot of bad movies ^^) - but George hardly was taking care of it, that was fine. Any ways, you see we have a standard issue here, I think George tries hard to make a nice home out of this condo in the future, he is young and an enthusiast, we like him very much. Any ways it was a nice stay! Much more better then in a hotel. We suggest George to use a better sleeping sofa then the current one, because with 4 people we do not suggest to stay in this condo because the sleeping situation. 2 or 3 people are good, without using the full build up sleeping sofa. The Wi-Fi was not always working stable, but was also much better then in some hotels. Compare with the condo we loved in Orlando, the differences are huge, we suggest George to use the money he earns from the rental of this condo to put it into new stuff, to make a more and more better condo with higher standards. We know this will increase it to a much higher level. Thank you for having us.
