Decent guest house but several issues
We rented this guest house for 2 weeks while we were in Encino for business. It is in a good location and was clean but we had a few issues while staying there. First, we specifically asked and were told that the bedroom had a queen-size bed but it is actually only a full-size bed. This was a very big issue to us as we would not have rented it had we known the bed was so small. They provide an iron but not an ironing board so we had to purchase one ourselves while we were there. The guest house does not have central air conditioning. There is a small air conditioning unit in the living room that does an adequate (not great) job of cooling the living room area but there is no air conditioning at all in the bedroom. The unit in the living room barely cools down the living room area and does nothing for the bedroom. We needed to leave the front door open at night to get cool air in as the house got so hot during the day and would not cool down adequately. Between the small bed and the heat it made sleeping there uncomfortable. When the A/C stopped working one day, they got it running again but then the electrical outlets stopped working. They did fix that problem the same day for us. Unfortunately, the internet is extremely slow to the point where we were not even able to use it for a while. The owner reset it and it worked well for a while then became very slow again. The frying pans in the kitchen were extremely worn and scratched and not really usable. Some of these issues may not matter if you are visiting for pleasure but when staying there while trying to do business they were very troublesome. The price is reasonable but you should know what you are getting for that price.
