She was a very good host and I would recommend others for looking for a stay in LA! Thanks again :)
Jinx and William are very fine people, it was great pleasure to meet! The communication from the very beginnig was perfect with Jinx and later I was warmly welcomed. I feel sorry we did not have more time to talk. The location is perfect, neat and lovely neighborhood. Hope to see you again! All the best, Balázs
Nice bedroom. Good location. No central AC, which was only a problem during the heatwave. I left a day early due to roaches in the bathroom, which made me uncomfortable. I showed the bugs to Jinx and asked her to clean the bathroom. She deduced a $40 “cleaning fee” from a one day refund. A sour ending to an otherwise okay stay.
Very friendly, and helpful, great location, very safe neighborhood.
Jinx is very nice, and the room is cozy, i am pretty enjoy the journey ~~~
take care, Jinx~~~
The home was untidy with food on the floor. The listing advertised breakfast and a private bathroom of which I received neither. There was cat food on the vanity in my unshared bathroom. My sheets were not clean on arrival but changed next day. I would not recommend this place.
Great location. Comfy bed. Housekeeping could use more attention.
Der erste Eindruck war leider eher schlecht. Keine richtige Begrüssung, zuerst Geld und dann das Zimmer und die vielen Regeln im Haus. Es war ein Homestay in einem Privatzimmer. Ausser dem kleinen schmuddeligen Bad durften wir keinen einzigen Raum benutzen. Das light breakfast war nicht dabei und so gingen wir uns das Essen selber einkaufen. Essen mussten wir auch im Zimmer. Die Küche und das Wohnzimmer ein absolutes Tabu, obwohl die Hausherrin ein separater Hausteil hat. Nicht mehr als 5 Minuten duschen ist eine der Regeln. Da aber das Warmwasser erst nach 2 Minuten kam, war es nicht wirklich einfach dies einzuhalten. Das Bett war bequem und wir bekamen einen Schlüssel zum Haus. So waren wir wenigstens frei und konnten ein und aus wann immer wir wollten. Auf Nachfrage bei der Houstmum, wäschte sie sogar unsere schmutzigeb Klamotten, was uns sehr ûberraschte.
Jinx is a nice and understanding host. Her house is located in good area with convenience to many attraction within 10 mins.
This guest awarded the host 3 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
