A great stay in LA!
We stayed for 5 days, and everything about this property was pretty great. Elizabeth is incredibly organized, checks in often enough to make you feel cared for (but in no way is intrusive), and has her guests' comfort in mind in many ways. We had bottled water, milk, and some coffee available upon our check-in, which was welcome, since we arrived late afternoon, had dinner plans, and did not have time to shop for these things for the morning. If I were pressed to mention anything that some random person may really need to know, I'd only say this: The bathroom is upstairs, which was clear to us in the photos, but some people may want that pointed out. It was not an issue for us. The bathroom had a dripping shower and a slow-draining sink. The first is under repairs (so probably a non-issue for next guest), and the latter was brought to her attention, and I'm sure Elizabeth will remedy it! We only felt bad because it was a bit harder to keep tidy, and the rest of the house is so immaculate! Make sure you are aware of the no-fragrance rule. I actually appreciated this, as I know some women like to douse themselves with pungent perfumes which tend to hang around in the air for days. The house only smells fresh and clean, and I'm sure that is why. I worried a bit, because EVERYTHING has a fragrance these days (hair products, etc.), but I think it's just the pervasive lingering ones that she does not allow. This includes room fragrances, candles, etc. In return, you get a sparkling fresh place to rent! Lastly, if I were to mention anything that we in particular would 'improve,' it would be the sheets. Although incredibly soft and luxurious-feeling, we are fussy about sleeping in 100% cotton. But that's just us. It was such a minor thing compared to all the good things this place has going on. I regret that I didn't know Elizabetth might have joined us for a glass of wine when we returned from our excursions. I would have loved to have spent more time chatting with her. She is witty and bright and full of good energy. The house is in a superb location, with very easy access to all the usual sights, and some not so usual ones as well! I will definitely stay there again if I am in the area. Another big thanks to our hostess!
