INCORRECT # OF ROOMS / SIZE OF HOME (but it's beautiful!)
Hello, We stayed at this home April, 2014, under the impression it was a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home. Upon arriving, there is only 1 bedroom (and the bathroom attached to the master - i.e. only entrance is through the master bedroom). The photos show a master bedroom (correct), and then the murphy beds in a room (incorrect) - please note, those are "example" Murphy beds in some other home - those photos/beds are NOT from this home (the murphy beds are actually located next to the sofa in the living room). Also, upon further investigation into the posting, the home is not 1,000 sq. ft., it must be under 700. The caretaker (also her husband, as I found out later - which made me feel a bit duped as well, because he seemed oblivious to the fact the ad was posted as a 2 bedroom), was extremely nice and gave us the guest cottage next door to the main house - that they rent out separately (another cute 1 bed/1 bath). The only reason we received the cottage for our stay was because the people who had rented it were furious they were not notified about the 6+ flights of stairs (74 or 75 stairs - we lost track every time!) to reach the front door from where you park - and they went to a hotel instead (left a pretty bad note w/us to give to owners). We didn't complain about the stairs because we laughed it off as good exercise for the weekend. But the stairs are something else that we think could have been better explained (yes, picture shows about 15-20 stairs, they just keep going - and in her note to me prior to arriva, she said it was about "about 3 flights up"). With that said, this is a very beautiful home, in a great location, is private (if nobody is in the cottage next door), it has beautiful views and the beds were SUPER comfy (the murphy beds looked uncomfy). The balcony is huge as well. This no doubtedly would be 5 stars, if the posting was honest. PRO's: Beautiful home, Wonderful king beds (really, really comfy), nice furniture, private, huge balcony, view, cool area of LA, quiet neighborhood (RARE). CON's: Deceptive ad, Only 1 bed/1 bath, small interior (probably under 700 sq. ft.), massive amount of steps from parking to door (74-75). Murphy beds padding looked extremely uncomfortable (and not for grown adults).
