Charming house, comfortable stay, gracious host
My entire experience, starting from the inquiry process to emailing with the owner about things left behind, was incredibly smooth and pleasant. Io was so helpful and enthusiastic; I immediately felt comfortable asking her questions and appreciated her thoroughness in answering them. The listing description and photos accurately presented the property-- it was spacious, in a quiet neighborhood, and had everything we needed. I was most impressed by the thought put into every detail of the house; it made every moment spent there enjoyable. It's obvious Io's invested a lot of time and love into the property. We have a ten month old baby, and because Io has a small child, she understands how difficult it can be traveling with a baby. When we arrived, she'd set up an actual crib, changing table, diaper genie, high chair, jumperoo, toys, and books. My daughter was thrilled and was able to smoothly transition. Our treat was the home theater- it seriously was like watching a movie at the theater. Another thing I loved about the house were the yards. On sunny mornings, my mom and I stretched in the front yard enjoying the privacy allowed by the wall of foliage. In the afternoons, my daughter would crawl around on the grass and gaze up at the palm trees. The yards are landscaped beautifully and have the feel of a secret garden. It was lovely. The neighborhood is away from the chaos of downtown but close enough to get there within 15 minutes by car. It was great for us because we had a lot of family events that we could get to easily since the freeway was close by. When we stayed in Atwater, we took a lot of nice walks, visited Griffith Park, had the BEST pupusas at a local mexican/salvadorean eatery on Fletcher, and a great breakfast at the village bakery. Although the house is spacious, it feels cozy and warm. We cooked several meals in the kitchen that boasts state of the art appliances and le crueset cookware. The beds were super comfortable, and there's plenty of room for four+ people. My 93 year old grandmother who hates sleeping anywhere else besides her own bed, stayed there the first two nights and said she hadn't slept that well in a long time. The first night she slept 8 hours straight without once getting up to go to the bathroom. She was very surprised and quite pleased. I highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a comfortable stay in LA!
